Forgive me as I have not watched the video...pick up a book.
IMHO it is not enough to pick up a book, you must read and consider the contents. The same concept should apply to video's...
Aha! Zinger! That's why I put my protective caveat shield on, Spooner...and yes, obviously one must be near, then pick up, then read, then comprehend, then integrate books for it to be a useful activity.
Sorry, I don't have the written transcript of the video. I see now that my heading was somewhat ambiguous. It was the Democrats who donated to the DNC. It's in the DNC's by-laws that Democratic Party candidates will receive fair and impartial support from the DNC. The DNC has admitted to having a rather low bar as to that fairness thang.
The whole point is, of the two major parties, the one concerned, while it may not be the one you'd like to reform, is the one in question here. The idea some of us have is if we can't make it something like a people's party, then we need abandon it in mass and start a new party, like bees swarming, taking the old queen (Bernie) and workers with us. Let the few unchangeable crony capitalist corporate Dems have their irrelevant party, while those who will eschew bribery crowd-fund their new start; a people's party with true populist ambitions. It's a big game and if there's a chance to change how it's being played, it's something to try. It can't get much worse than it's become.
No apologies necessary, obviously. Besides, if I were too drunk to watch the video I sure as hell wasn't going to read about it.
Now though, since I have watched the video - yep, my same response replies. And, your heading wasn't really ambiguous. To the point - the idea that Democrats are surprised at the DNC's actions, indicates low voter IQ. I'm sorry but if anyone thought that Bernie Sanders was going to get an even hand with Hillary Clinton hasn't picked up a book or, as Spooner suggested, applied any active literacy to any book they have picked up.
"The idea some of us have is if we can't make it something like a people's party, then we need abandon it in mass and start a new party"
I think you're way past the "then" phase. Anyone still waiting to abandon "the party", get's whatever angst they deserve. I look forward to hearing about some real, effective actions that don't depend on asking the courts to rule against their bosses.
