When 30% of the people punished are from one identifiable group that comprises approximately 3% of the Kossack population, there is a problem.
Do I agree with everything that has been said by TiMT or Adept2u, or any of the others who have been punished ? No, in fact Adept hurt me very, very, very badly. I don't agree with any Kossack 100% of the time, including myself, because I have been wrong.
But those numbers must be protested.
So I will be taking a week away from the site to organize my coming trip to lobby in DC and to reach out for more panelists for my torture and accountability series for Netroots Nation next year.
I will ask you to do a few things while I am away:
1) Please give your support and good thoughts and prayers to testvet (Mike) and his wife, Dorrie. Mike is undergoing very dangerous surgery on Wednesday and needs all the good mojo possible.
2) Please, if you have a mind to, support the IGTNT tributes to the fallen. Their families need all the support possible.
4) I'm looking for help with a wordpress site that is under creation where I can store torture and accountability documents. If you have computer skills and would like to help put up documents, I would extremely grateful, because I don't have the skills to do it. My email address is my nic @ gmail dot com.
I wish you all a week of thoughful reflection and abundant activism.
With gratitude and hugs,
