Response to Original message
9. Only a fool would stand by passively and watch the
bullshit that has passed for the past 7 years and fan the powder to keep it dry. As a woman, I'm watching the rights for my daughters and granddaughters be chipped away bit by bit. As a woman in a biracial marriage, I worry about the creeping tolerance of racism and the chipping away at civil rights under the guise of saving businesses and prosperity. As a human being, I see human rights being violated all around and the Constitution cynically used to create an imperial presidency. I'm watching it occur with the assistance of enough of a number of legislators from my political party.

When deserved, I'll slap the donkey and offer it a carrot when it has done well. This weekend was nothing to be proud of or to give props for.

Sorry. You need to add a couple of other foils to your poll.
