About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

Thanks for all the responses to my post. It's nice to say something that resonates with my fellow DU'ers. Most of my stuff goes over like a lead zeppelin around here.

Chris Hedges has had some excellent "what is it going to take to start revolution in America" videos and because he covered so many revolutions ans social upheavals in the middle East over his career. He really knows the confluence of factors that trigger revolution. It seems to take only one or two percent of the population to get active and protest and fight to trigger substantial change.

As 2014 has been deemed by some to be the year of the return of liberal progressivism, this will be a year of profound change, and I think for the better.

We have wonderful people like Alan Grayson, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and other remarkable politicians fighting hard for the bottom 99%. May the 2014 Elections replace all gerrymandered Republicans with Bill DiBlasio clones!

Once the lies and smears the right has directed at the ACA for the last three years are proven to be demonstrably false by the experience of millions of Americans, it will become more apparent to the aging Fox News Viewers that their beloved Republicans are liars that work aggressively against the best interests of the bottom 99%. And it will be more obvious to the entire country that the Republicans grovel at the feet of the wealthy Oligarchs they serve instead of the fools that vote for them.

It will become so apparent that perhaps the wealthy will get their children kidnapped by desperate Americans with NOTHING LEFT TO LOOSE. With our media, that could be a full blown epidemic happening at this very moment that our MSM is censoring desperately, lest they incur the ire of their masters. Looks for elites to start receiving more ears from their kidnapped children this year. If this fantasy is taking form somewhere, thank God we have reporters like Greg Palast, Amy Goodman, Jeremy Scahill, Bill Moyers, Thom Hartmann and even the MSNBC prime time line up to tell us about it.

I can taste the schadenfreude now!
