Or more like we need all hands on deck here in The Old North State, and fighting the ALEC-powered machine always goes easier with a bunch of people you've visited/drank/picnicked/dined/drank with etc. as we all know. What, I have one too many drinks in the previous sentence? Oh no, I don't have enough drinks, considering what we've been though in the last two years :-(
I have a long history with the infamous SF Kossacks, so when we moved to Raleigh four years ago (yikes time flies when your rights are being stripped away), I wanted to replicate the camaraderie as best I could, being that I am not a Diva like my mentor ;-)
I'll close my eyes and jump...
... over the Pastry of Eternal Happiness.
We will be the third group in NC from what I gather, correct me if I'm wrong. Not that I could stop you from correcting me anyway, heh.
The Triangle area includes the major NC cities of Raleigh (state capital which is currently infested with wingnuts trying their damnedest to burrow into our ladyparts, and do other really heinous things), Durham and Chapel Hill.
Any Kossack who wants to be a Kosmopolitan is welcome to join, including those who've moved out of state (I'm looking at you, a gilas girl). If y'all don't fancy the term Kosmopolitan we can take a vote and change that, I'm open and so is my copy of Illustrator.
Some of you have messaged me about the group a while back, and I messed up so I don't have all my old messages, I'm sorry. So I'm going to send out a group-wide kosmail to the whole North Carolina BLUE group, and we can start over I hope.
I'd like to get everyone's email addresses for the Triangle Kosmopolitans if possible. We will not send out official spam. Every email will be a lovingly crafted missive of incredible prose, with the utmost thought and care in mind as we hit that SEND button. Or we could use a Google or Yahoo group to do email.
Okay, enough bloviating.
In the interest of providing some nutritious blog content, I submit for your consideration this column by Bob Geary in the Indy, what are your thoughts on his ideas and prognostication?
How Democrats Can Reclaim North CarolinaWake County... we have some work to do.
I'm not going to kid you. If your goal is to win our state back from the reckless Republicans who run it now, there's no easy path. But in response to the No. 1 question people ask me, the answer is yes. There is a path. And it begins in Wake County.
But first, let's understand the challenge.
Thanks for reading. Now you maybe can see why I don't diary much, heh.
P. S. But it's not too bad for an extreme introvert, no?
