155. Unfortunately, too late...
Since the Dem "leadership" and Obama were too timid to bring the bush government starvation program up MUCH earlier it's now too damn late...

They've succumbed to the inevitable republican blackmail and have no time to wriggle free...

If they'd taken this on early in the year (or LAST YEAR!) they could have used the issue to create a grassroots movement to get some of our money back from the rich fucks who've robbed us blind for the last 35+ years

And by showing some spine in a Populist cause, probably held the House in November...

But since the Dems are a loose collection of "liberals" to blue-dog-libertarian-republicans (non-Republicans) and have NO ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES, they they are as incapable of governing as the republicans; who have strong unifying "principles" but unfortunately theirs are the principles of a vampire sucking the blood of the Commons...

And we're stuck in the middle, some of us foolishly trying to create a humane world from a corrupt system...

Like Bernie...
