  •  Democrats are really helping us, huh? (3+ / 0-)

    I know this from personal experience. I'm sending, from my Soc Sec check, $100 to my son for his family, $100 to my niece for her family, because no matter how hard they work, they are working-poor. I depend on a local food bank to get by. And I live 1,000 miles from my son/niece, to afford housing in a very isolated place, since I don't have to commute to work/school every day, like they do. It's sickening, and I don't know why I should give one more minute of free labor to Dems to help them when they've left us like this - so I'm not going to! I'll work my crippled butt off to replace them with real progressive, pro-worker Dems, tho! But, try as I might, I can't find people to organize with since the election ended. There are local Democratic meetings this Sunday to elect delegates, and I can't get one person to give me a ride. And, of course, bus service on Sundays is now zero here. I'm hobbling off to the rocky shore, to beat the blues away, now.
