70. Poking my nose in here
ldf, I am in your corner, and that of Ms. Harris. The ONLY person that I have seen at the barricades, writing, speaking, appearing on the TV and radio about this issue is Bev Harris. She made me aware of this issue, and she is the one who has been slogging through the brutally dull but important details to bring us the truth.

I love the way some computer commandos pop up and are so eager to criticize, yet I see no links to their "hard work" on this important issue that affects each and every one of us. Where are their TV interviews, published works, and op-ed pieces? Those that CAN, do, and those that CAN'T, sit on their asses in front of their computers like little Lords of the Dinks and pontificate, criticize, and suggest, vaguely, why a proposed plan of action cannot possibly work, without offering practical solutions or rolling up their sleeves and pitching in to help.

This is a very IMPORTANT MESS. And it affects all of us, regardless of party--if the system is subverted, democracy is dealt a mortal blow. So it really is a question of LEADING, FOLLOWING or getting the hell OUT OF THE WAY.

As a person who is computer illiterate, I'm pretty useless in both the leading and following departments. Thus, I have no choice but to get the hell out of the way, and cheer Ms. Harris on. I know that she is working for the interests of DEMOCRACY. She should be applauded for that, not punked by know-it-alls who are unwilling to make an investment of their own sweat, time or talent to help make a bad situation better.
