Barry, My Liege :
Even though it is too late for you to make a stronger mark on history, maybe you can guide your successor into some real changes.
Let's talk straight.
We need real change, My Liege.
We don't need pandering and BS and military studies of civil unrest like MINERVA [ see link below].
Specifically, we want our leaders to take back our government from moneyed interests and do what is right for the rest of us.
We voted for change and we got more of the same.
You won because you tapped into a yearning for real change - we wanted you to be Teddy Roosevelt.
You had a chance to be that when the Dems controlled both houses and the Presidency, but you blew it.
Yes, you did some good and necessary things, but now is the time for hard things, My Liege.
Now, we want our country back.
There's a good chance that we will elect a Dem President and both houses of Congress again because we are just fed up.
We are getting desperate, My Liege.
You can see a list of the things that need change here:
And, My Liege, I am concerned that the reaction of the DOD in today's world is to fund studies about tracking civil unrest as preparation for military action; see it here http://www.alternet.org/environment/pentagon-preparing-mass-civil-unrest?akid=11920.1151017.ibIDFF&rd=1&src=newsletter1003144&t=9
Your faithful servant,
