A shout out to... Quiet DUers!

To all those members of Democratic Underground who DON'T post monumental, epic posts, but who quietly READ everything, RECOMMEND what they read and even ADD a short comment or two.

They're not flashy nor do they wish to attract attention to themselves. They're either long-time posters, newbies (welcome!) or long-time lurkers who have decided to participate.

Here's to all of you!

Just heard something interesting about the French Revolution

It was started by the right wing upper classes, protesting high taxes. France was BROKE because of war and colonial pursuits (sound familiar?)

The Crown (royalty) tried to quell the dispute, but then.... the "left-wing", the poor and oppressed, seized the opportunity and rebelled against both the rich AND royalty itself and took control.

Occupy Wall St. is not at all a new concept.
