Thank you, brother bussgang. Very very helpful and insightful When we also factor in the inevitable pricing war (as Groupon's competitors lower and lower their take (price to merchants), plus the awesomely fast rise of competitors, and copycats, it certainly gives one pause...

I'm delighted I could offer a "construction" that "fascinates" anyone! But sorry, there is no "neologism" (great word!) in view. Of course, I meant to type "Democratic" Party. My use of the word "Democrat" was a, well, just a typo. Yup, a typo. So, sorry, no conspiracy here. Btw, what seemingly nefarious "community" are you alluding to? And why not just come out and say it? And why such sensitivity? What difference could it possibly make to say "Democrat"? Do you raise an eyebrow when someone refers to the Republicans as the "GOP"? Is it "fascinating" when the parties are represented by donkeys and elephants? Sheesh.

Anil, I'm afraid you are the one setting up a strawman then knocking it down You write "I cringe in anticipation of the day when the Tea Party realizes their protest marches will be as ineffective as the even more massive anti-Iraq war rallies were seven years ago. People who want to see marches in the streets are often unwilling to admit that those marches just don't produce much in the way of results in America in 2010." The Tea Party and its rallies are not only effective, they are having massive practical effects and creating radical change, right before your eyes. Do you really deny that the Tea Party is having huge influence on the upcoming November midterm elections? And that the Republican Party (and possibly also the Democrat party!) are being remade in the process? Do you deny that the Obama Administration is rethinking tactics (and possibly policy) because of the Tea Party? Do you not acknowledge that the new media are being changed as well? Its true the antiwar rallies of a few years ago were not effective at creating change -- but that's because despite the news media's open sympathies and extensive coverage, they were actually not all that popular. In most polls, the Tea Party and its issues garner support from a large majority of the USA. Strawman.
