I am very angry with you.

Besides, that I have read Alinsky, under your advice. Because I read, I am a reader and if people suggest, I am apt to at least give their ideas a try. This video says nothing particular, it is just vague. If you have something to add, I would read it.

Your application of Alinsky's tenets leaves a lot to be desired. Like I said to Marley, he leaves out that activism is not a dress pattern, it is about human nature and a leader needs native ability.

Which cannot be taught.

I am sorry you have taken this tract. I can only assume it stems from your own experience.

Which from the way you tell it, was much more difficult than mine, so I do not judge.

Like I see your avatar, no, I don't feel helpless and bloodied. God bless youl.

It may come as a surprise, Joy, but this blog is not a dialog with you, personally. If I post a teaser for a documentary on Alinsky, it's for the benefit of folks who may have never heard of him, let alone read him.

As soon as the California effort sputtered out I quit writing on this blog. I wouldn't have started posting again but I found the animation interface fun and amusing. I used to do a cut and paste comic strip called Little Bastard Annie twelve years ago (inspired by the "Biff" comics by the Situationists). I'll see if I can find one I did about the New Jersey compromisers back in 1997.

My "tract"? I'm just commenting. I've been doing my cartoons in between reading precinct abstracts and trend spreadsheets trying to figure out where to pick up votes in the May primary. I just came off a January special election in which I organized 10K phone calls and about as many door-knocks and we carried my county and beat expectations by 3%. I like winning, losing sucks. That's my message, pure and simple.

I look at Adoption World politics and think ya'll are craazzzy.

Reviewing this video, why do you not want to empower your people?


Have you as you suggest, just turned your back and think we are silly now? If so why blog.

Are you openly admitting that you have no respect for adoptees? And if so, why not leave them alone?
