10. That's why I never did post it as originally written in early July.
Well, that and it involved a lot of 'capping old articles and the preview crashed on me while I was still writing it over a multi-hour period... old computer and all that. I retrieved the post but decided to work on it some more before posting it and see what others were saying, and that's when I discovered the rash of pro-wiretapping and really rather conservative Dems that came out to trash posters to the right of me, much less to the left of me, and reflexively defend the Administration's actions... it doesn't help that "progressive talk" hosts have all geared themselves to be partisan Democrats and not progressives, except for KO who got thrown under the bus... while all the progressive (and Occupy friendly) folks seemed to fade into the woodwork (probably too disappointed and frustrated, like me) until I came back. (And I hadn't been back long before coming here)

I think now people are coming back because they realize that the average American they meet on the streets is angrier about some of these issues than the conservative Dems are, so why be afraid to speak? After all that's why the Admin feels compelled to keep the issue alive by defending against the steady leak of information.
