About Me

I am a 32-year-old typical San Francisco liberal. I have a daughter. I\'m divorced. I have been politically active throughout my life and have voted for Democrats my whole life. I voted for Obama twice and would do it again without hesitation if I had to do it all over again. I also took part in the occupy protests in Oakland from the very earliest days.

This "Patriots" argument is embarrassing to watch

It's an example of why I post so seldom here and feel pretty down on the Left's ability to focus, win elections and really improve people's lives as opposed to a lot of self-congratulatory demonstrations of moral outrage with no meaningful positive effect.

It's a reminder of why Liberals still lose so much even though most of the country agrees with them on the issues. They watch us get lost in the weeds and turn on each other like hungry dogs over a handful of vague words and we all look like a bunch of children lost in directionless moral outrage that doesn't actually help anyone.

It's funny because I'm on the Left of just about every issue, but I hate being called a Liberal and watching this stupid argument is just such a perfect example of why. I'm just embarrassed to be associated with people who on such a regular basis completely miss the point but never ever miss the chance to get on their high horse and pontificate.

Once again the endless argument, Obama is either saint or devil. No in-between, all absolutism. This helps no one. This is why we lose. This is why people who we could be helping continue to suffer.
