Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Talk to your senators ...

    Scary. It's true to say that in order to at the very least achieve a kind of stand-off, let alone not allow your beliefs to be stomped on, that you have to do at least as much as the opposition. So if the far right are going door-to-door, it's time to get some strong shoes and do the same; if they're smearing names, it's time to do some smearing right back. That said, being reactive isn't enough; as much as we can, we should be proactive - starting the campaigns, not following on behind theirs. The AFA is vile. We have something similar, but considerably less impactful, over here. x

    Jami, if you're wanting to do a stanza of the Open Source Poem, the latest guy is asking for a volunteer so thought I'd give you the heads up - it's up to Open Source Poem V now, and you need to head over to Love Settlement to make yourself known! x

    [Sorry for the delay in getting this comment up, but Blogspot was being cranky yesterday and wouldn't let me post anything anywhere. Seems to be OK now, though.]

    Yes, being REactive isn't nearly enough and we should be a lot more PROactive. BUT, just getting folks to react can be a lot of effort, in and of itself; getting them to do something first is damned near impossible. And of course, if only the same voices are raised in protest, they become easy to ignore after a while. It's going to take a lot of folks yelling instead of the same few before anything changes.

    And I wrote to Glenn and volunteered for stanza VI. However, if he sends it to me I think I'm going to shift it to Arabic numerals instead of Roman before this thing gets too unwieldy. ("I'm tagging you for stanza MMDCLXXVIII of the Open Source Poem".)
