59. No, I'm not new. I'm nightscanner repackaged, thanx, so pls don't "welcome me to DU."

The most frustrating part of all you said is attempting to convince the RW's programmed zombies to shut off frickin' FOX noise and listen to the real facts. They blast back the false equivalency that their confabulations are just as valid as our facts because the FOX said so with slick graphics and stuffed suits to lend the veneer of validity.
This said only having watched enough FOX years ago attempting to care for my now posthumous father, who passed on laden with every reprehensible form of bigotry that has now carried a ruthless dictator to power over our nation.
But I saw enough. Enough to see the "don't believe anyone else, we tell you the truth" meme. Enough to watch a media empire lay waste to magnanimous amounts of factual information from every well accredited institution of higher learning in the whole world with "It's all left wing conspiracy" crap.
Yes I've had enough. And I'd love to join the masses in protest. But reality sets in. I'm gay. I was denied all inheritance. I recycle paper cups for as many uses as I can before tossing them. I barely make my car and rent payments and it's been that way for this 57 year old since Ray Gun. I've spent months at a stretch unemployed after the republicans lay waste to our economic base while fat cats buy new islands.
I could no more afford a ticket to a Washington protest nor the time from work lest my fragile barely-above-homeless raft sinks.
And I believe that is by design.
