  •  AND PLEASE COMPROMISE YOUR OWN STUFF (1+ / 0-)

    When I compromise, I'm only using my own barganing chips. This is not the case with politics.

    America's mostly white, straight, male and affluent "representatives" of both parties are compromising with OUR chips. The poor, POC, GLBT, women- our issues are ever and always available to trot out as a threat and bargan away in compromises that get them things with a higher priority. The right keeps prayer in the schools, teaching creationism, abolishing affirmative action and criminalizing abortion tucked in their back pocket, ready to frighten the children and get what they really want, too.
