  •  Running away is not "taking a stand". (0+ / 0-)

    F*cking get in as much press as possible to make the argument in support of the unions heard.   These democrats were elected to represent, not to run away.  F*cking absurd.  When faced with a bully on the playground, you don't run away, you fight back- or they'll keep coming after you.

      to "fight" a bunch of assholes who are not listening.  They will get a lot more press this way, and will be heard by people who are actually listening.

        Republicans are fights against assholes-so what do you suggest-just running away and hoping "people" will recognize that the Democrats are "above" fighting Republicans.  This is not a political strategy. This is a cop out.

    •  And what exactly do you do (5+ / 0-)

      when your ever so principled opponent doesn't follow the rules?  Like putting a bunch of union busting, non-germane crap in an "emergency" budget bill?   Sit there and raise ever so clever parlimentary points of order - and when they are ignored, register your polite disapproval?  Then explain to the press that by golly those Republicans sure are unfair and wrong-headed, but there was really nothing you could do?

      In your silly playground analogy, that kind of approach gets your lunch money taken, and you punched in the nose to boot.

      it means:

      F*cking get in as much press as possible to make the argument in support of the unions heard.

      THEY'RE DOING IT.  I suggest you log off of the Orange Satan, monitor Twitter, Facebook, turn on the TV, any station but Fox, and if you don't have a TV, look for television streams on the Internet.

      You'll find that you're getting what you wished for:

      "As much press as possible."

      •  Hope you are right. (0+ / 0-)
