    We need to use it.

    We need to show this ad and ask: "is this today's Republican Party?"

    "If not, why won't they condemn it?"

    Clarence Thomas had a dump
    Weiner said "this guy's a chump"
    He was caught tweeting pix riské
    So Justice Thomas got away.

      I just start despairing when I get to the part where "who will magnify our voices so that everyone can hear it?" Because these bastards own and control our entire communications infrastructure.

      That leaves us with precious few other options to really be heard, from where I sit :-(

      REPEAL the Telecomm Act & REVIEW this decision. NO journalist should be fired because their boss can't have the truth told.

        getting ideas into the popular media.  Ours are less effective, but they do exist.  Keith, Rachel, Ed, Thom, Randi -- and plenty of other things, like letters to the editor, writing politicians, etc.  In my case, I wrote a diary.  We're not powerless.

          "less effective"--we're only less effective when talking about "trying to do things Their Way". There are way more of us than there are of them.

          I've played by their rules for fifty years, and I'm pretty well sick and tired of trying to work within a good system that they have either bought up or destroyed with their greed.

          I'm sorry--I live in Reddistan, Florida, so it's easy to despair sometimes. I'm surrounded by the brainwashed sycophants of these assholes. Today is just one of those days where I want to grab the nearest blunt wooden object and just start swinging.
