Well. Doug Wead. Thanks for the napkin now pay for my dry cleaning.Submitted by Smudge Pot on Mon, 11/12/2012 - 23:10
Doug Wead, last man in the campaign I respect did a quick bow and curtsey to us grassroots, us "fringe". Gee, we ought to be more inclusive.
I think of our beloved brother Aaron Russo and how at his death we carefully considered who would carry our banner, who could be trusted because Aaron didn't pussyfoot or play nice with our opposition. He played to HURT THEM AND WIN.
Thanks to the Fish Sisters, we have a stock answer. Let's play nice. Very nice. Very nice indeed.
Those of us on the grass roots, when we send $100 that means we and our families are going without the nicer foods we like to eat. We are putting off vacations and a better car. We are giving up, WE ARE GIVING OF OUR LIVES. WHAT WE GIVE THE CAMPAIGNS IS SOMETHING WE DON'T GET OR WE HAVE TO WORK HARDER FOR.
I wanted something more than "gee, we should be more inclusive". This is a war. And while I know that wars need certain persons that stay in 5 start hotels and order as much as they want, whenever they want to eat,
WE SUFFERED AND GAVE YOU THAT CHANCE AND SINCE YOU DROPPED THE BALL ON US, I DON'T WANT TO HEAR WHAT THEY DID WRONG, I WANT TO KNOW WHY, AS A BRO, YOU DIDN'T STAND UP FOR US AND OUR CHILDREN.
Because my kids have to hear why the movement is more important than their new school clothes and why we don't have as nice foods on the table as they used to have and why they are not as warm at night as they want to be.
You tell me why doing with less is our tradition and getting paid more to fail is yours.
And I'm not buying it again and I'm not paying for your kids to have a nicer life than mine. Ever again. Because I trusted you and I don't anymore.
I am fringe. FRINGE. Part Native American and this is my land. Yep.
The people born of this natural soil now pay you rent.
Now go to the Hamptons on vacation so I can forget you.
Oh wait! The Hamptons just got wrecked! Ok no problem,
JUST BUY YOURSELF AN ISLAND IN THE CARIBBEAN WITH OUR MONEY.
