Newsvine

About This Author

I dropped off of Newsvine for several months, dissatisfied with the site's policy of considering the the form of users' Comments to be more important than the content of those Comments. During these months, I have not at all missed the aggravation of the trollish behavior that had become prevalent.

But Newsvine remains a forum to which I have access... and after the Walker recall failure, I feel a need for action. Living overseas, I do not have a valid American address, and therefore cannot vote. I can (and do) contribute financially to like-minded entities such as MoveOn.org, but I feel the need to do something. Try, at least, to convince people of the danger they are facing...

So here I am again. I'll be posting in just two areas: politics and economics. I haven't decided if I'll participate on pages other than my own.
