HOW'M I DOING?
Our State Of The Unionist Message
It's been two months now. We're still here. We did OK aound Election Day, thanks to the American Street, Kevin Hayden's blog. Whenever he posts our link on his front page, we get a huge surge in traffic. Generally, though, things have died down since the Bushies pulled their second coup.
Yeah, its depressing. But it just means we have to redouble our efforts. Bush is not now, never was, and never will be legitimate. It's a waste of time trying to prove that. There is no paper trail, except the ones crooked Republicans control. So we need to focus on reforming the electoral system. No more paperless voting. No more intimidation, discarded votes, disenfranchisement.
We need to get it together, literally. We've been too loose, too isolated, too separated. We need to pull together. We're recommending reestablishment of the old Democratic Party Clubhouses, as a system of organizing and contact points for continuous, structured action on all issues. Check the link, at the end of this post.
As to this little blog, if we can make a contribution, we'll keep it going. We're not much further along than we were a month ago. We're looking for ways to remedy that. We need a better commenting system, better coverage on the various blog-search engines, and more connections to blogging groups. Oh, and a new skin, or template. This one sucks. If anyone has any suggestions, please email us at the address below.
Thanks to Maria, Cul, and their regular posters Sandy, Richard and Karlo, for reading, encouraging, and linking to this blog. (Check out their blogs, the first ones LINKED at the bottom of the home page.) Thanks to them and to the creators of the other blogs we've been permitted to post on, or been linked by: Dave Marco, Kevin Hayden, John Aravosis, Atrios, and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, all of whose blogs are linked, below. Dave Donnelly of George W. Buy seems to have gone off the 'Net for the time being, but we'll put his blog back on our list as soon as it resurfaces. We recently joined the Progressive Blog Alliance, but their blogrolling link doesn't work here, and we're not listed on it anywhere else. Gotta fix that. Anyway, thanks, to the nice folks at the PBA. So much for ass-kissing. Ptui!
Gee. I feel like Sally Field. And I didn't even WIN anything. Well, maybe next month. We'll give it another thirty days, I guess. But that's it if it doesn't pick up. Not that we want to end up like Kos, or Atrios. They have too many readers & commenters to keep in touch with. But we do need some more commenters. If you're not an asshole, please send some comments our way. Our current system is just designed to keep out flaming freeper trolls and other right-wing assholes, not EVERYBODY. We're working on it. Sort of. In the meantime, join BLOGGER/ blogspot, or send us an email. We'll post it. Honest. And we won't give your email addy to Pat Robertson, either. Though you should be getting those critical Teletubbies updates from JesusCorp.
