4. Let's not wait until 2015 or 2016 to be shouting about this, right, gately?

...like we all usually do!

6. I KNOW!

I was SO GRATEFUL to see the MSNBC folks covering it! That's a great first step.

This is truly frightening -- I don't know if there's anything THEY can do to stop it, do you?

I've been trying to tell everyone I know and their eyes glaze over and they're just not interested -- figure it's just another "spat" between the Democrats and Republicans I say NO! This is a meticulously planned, carefully executed agenda to ensure the Republicans will win future elections.

They STILL don't get it!

What can we do?

8. Anyone active locally, like you and me, with OFA or D party organizers....

....needs to check our email and phone contacts and ask them how to stay active BEYOND the election.

Beyond that, find the nearest (and this might be a state or two away) REALLY engaged elected official who GETS IT and connect with their staff and organization.

Write LTTEs and all that other stuff.

Then come back here and TALK ABOUT IT!

Mary Oliver said it well, for good things and for shocking things, I suppose:

5. Hopefully we can right some wrongs in 2014 and repeal some of these changes before they impact 2016.
