The night Jon Stewart announced a "Rally to Restore Sanity" and "The Rev. Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert" joined in with a "March to Keep Fear Alive" this American 'girl' was dancing to every song ZZ Top and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed at the St. Pete Forum.

I grew up on the promise that the U.S. was always the good guy and that fear always closes ones mind and heart.

In the Colbert universe, "America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear -- that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty. But now, there are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear"They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget 'Reason' is just one letter away from 'Treason.'"

On September 11, 2001, fear ran through the heartland of America and The Media disseminated the White Houses' dictation instead of questioning and investigating why some people in the world hated US so much they would target and murder innocent people.

President G.W. Bush told US if we wanted to help, we should all go shopping, but Neil Young and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers best expressed the spirit that this Nation was founded upon:

Neil Young, Imagine, 9/11 Moments

During the '60's the secular Jewish road warrior, Abbie Hoffman, co-founded the Yippies/Youth International Party.

Abbie was known as the grandmaster of The Groucho Marxist's because of his creative comical anarchy.

Abbie pulled off a mass media manipulation when he convinced them to turn out at a demonstration at The Pentagon that promised 50,000 people using psychic energy would levitate The Pentagon, vibrate it and rotate it until it turned orange and the War on Vietnam ended.

In 1968 Chicago, Abbie addressed the children of the '60's who had planned on spending the night in a city park after their long day of 'lobbying' at the Democratic Convention.

Mayor Daly sent word to Abbie that the multitudes were not welcome in his park and the cops were on the way in.
