hold up kids! I didn't get to talk! [View all]

someone locked down my thread b4 could ask, 'why was the bernie speech the other day attended primarily by well-dressed rich people'? esp one hosted by the afl-cio. where were all the actual... working people? not because it was the middle of the day; this is a retail town. yes, I can recognize construction workers when I see them. they could make it, but what about the walmart retail zombies? what's their excuse?

this is a serious concern and one I have abt the democratic party at large. for whom I have worked and with which I have noticed that ppl are hired upon their good-lookingness and ethereal academic qualifications rather than any actual competence. on the flip side of the coin, I've noticed that getting my twentysomething coworkers to give a flip abt the Serious Geopolitical Concerns of the Day is like pulling effing teeth. ditto for the fortysomething ones, tho that's not gonna stop me from GETTING OUT THE VOTE.

before you all get your panties in a wad like you did last time, I do support bernie. I support him a lot, and have been planning on volunteering for him. I will be volunteering for him. etc.
