My fist street protest at the age of nearly 76 was a real bummer.


I've never been a street demonstrator, until now. Odd age to start, going on 76. But I decided to put on my dissident shoes below my dissident voice and go out to protest.

This week the House is on recess and Rep. Mica will be at home in his district. Can you drop by Rep. Mica's office in Palm Coast at noon on Thursday to deliver the message with other MoveOn members?
