  •  May I ask which swath of the Democratic base (1+ / 0-)

    is missing in this conversation? I ask, not as a Democrat, but as a progressive Independent who has found a place here at DailyKos. I'm expanding beyond my normal military diaries and finding a whole new world in here.

    I can tell from your tagline that you're for more conversation, not less :)  

    •  Hi angelajean... (3+ / 0-)

      if I had known the topic of your diary last week, I would have read it.  Sorry, I assumed it was more charter-school bashing, pro-union, anti-family, anti-poor people education diaries that are typical for dkos.  I'm sorry I missed it.

      Well this website is 95% white, disproportionately male and wealthy.  My black single mom inner city self is few and far between here.  I'm a Democrat but the demographic here does skew to older people as well overall.

      So my peers who are in the process of raising our kids and trying to provide a decent education is missing here.  I find the conversations on education are pretty much controlled by teachers, union reps or people who are married to teachers.  The parents who are who don't face the same reality I face.

      I know how you were treated for stepping out of line, here, lol!  Sorry, I missed it.  

      I for one am tired of pandering to perpetrators --- many of whom are opposed to any discussion however it comes. -- soothsayer99 DPK Caucus
