You will never be able to confuse me with a professional journalist or talk show host. My 60 hour per week job prevents me from being able to do the research in order to do a quality job. That doesn't mean that I don't have an opinion, nor makes that opinion any less important than those who are better educated or have the time to interview policy makers at a local or national level.
Last week, I submitted a posting to a progressive blog site. The subject was how national pollsters seem to overlook the financially challenged sector of the population. I triple checked the spelling and grammar, as to not come off as a total bafoon. The submission was ignored without any explanation.
Those in either political party, especially the Democrats, who chose to ignore the voices of the working poor do so at their own peril. It was many of these same people who were responsible for sweeping the Democrats into the White House as well as giving them the majority in Congress. With the mid-term elections looming, it is imperative that the Democrats stay in touch with this group of Americans, if they want keep their near super majority in both houses.
Don't worry, this little snub by this progressive blog site will not suddenly convert me into a Limbaugh disciple. I just want my progressive friends to understand the growing disconnect between the haves and the have nots within the movement.
