@sickjew I think in theory it's an option but I unfortunately don't hold our generation to be like the previous who protested 'Nam. =/
Stop The Wars @leftjew
@shwey Regardless, the empirical need is there to protest these policies in the streets. I don't know what "our generation" means.

@sickjew I mean that unfortunately there's less outrage in the Millenials. I agree, there should be more protests & a higher voter turnout.
Stop The Wars @leftjew
Prove it. RT @shwey "there's less outrage in the Millenials."

@shwey @sickjew then we should not give #Obama a pass on criticism just because he is a "D". He has just abandoned the workers and needy.
JNE @jneproductions
@shwey @sickjew that's the sad truth for all of s who supported him in2008, and will hold our noses and do it again in 2012.
S H W E T A. @shwey
@jneproductions @sickjew Couldn't disagree more on Obama abandoning workers. If ppl gave him a better Congress, this wouldn't be reality.
JNE @jneproductions
@shwey @sickjew he is the president not a clerk tat rubber-stamps what the congress does. You give him a complete pass and that is wrong.
JNE @jneproductions
@shwey @sickjew he must lead dynamically and aggressively. He has become another beltway bum, doing business as usual....
Stop The Wars @leftjew
@jneproductions And this is the constant assumption by would-be "pragmatists" - essentially that the President is a slave. @shwey

Stop The Wars @leftjew
@jneproductions We'll be getting whacked on the back of head w/ shovels and some will still say "If only others had voted better." @shwey
JNE @jneproductions
@shwey @sickjew why those without millions to buy theirs, have no voice?? The president ran on being that voice and then fell silent.
Stop The Wars @leftjew
@jneproductions A fact only dismissible to those who can afford to retain the self-delusion of luxury. @shwey

@jneproductions I don't think I understand your point here, can you elaborate? @sickjew
JNE @jneproductions
@shwey @sickjew well, Obama ran as the agent of change for all of us left behind by Washington over the last 30 years. A transformative...

@shwey @sickjew figure. One that the people could rely on not only to change the attitude in DC, but be the protector of those who need it.

Stop The Wars @leftjew
@jneproductions He's become the pragmatist and negotiator for one bourgeois economic class divided against itself. @shwey
S H W E T A. @shwey
@jneproductions These sound like your projections onto the Prez. He didn't campaign on getting our of wars if you recall. @sickjew
S H W E T A. @shwey
@jneproductions And where are the votes on Congress for that progressive tax scale. He wants it too but where are the votes? @sickjew
