213. If you're going to hijack a thread
(This thread was about hacking a DRE, remember?) to persuade people to follow your pet issue, don't act like a douche bag when you do it.

The "lazy naive left", as you like to call them, was not responsible for the current RW radio clusterfuck. Bill "Third Way/DLC" Clinton signed the Telecommunications Deregulation Act into law; he's the one responsible. (And don't give me any excuses- "He was hamstrung! He was forced to do it!"- Compromising in return for shit is SOP for the DLC.) Blaming the left for the DLC's corporate sell-out fiasco is like blaming unions for the current debt debacle.

Telling people to picket stations to fight RW radio is like telling people to unplug their electronics to stop global warming. It might make people feel empowered, but in the big picture it's a waste of resources and accomplishes little.

And if you've been observing this for 20+ years, you know that too.
