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.

What got me up from the PC and out onto the street was an e-mail from Daniel Mintz and his team members of the MoveOn.org Political Action Team this last April 20. Here's the basic message.

Dear Gary, Unbelievable. They really voted to eliminate Medicare. Last week, all but four House Republicans voted for a budget that eliminates Medicare for anyone born after 1957.It's time Representative John Mica heard from us, loud and clear: voting to end Medicare is completely unacceptable and we will hold you accountable.

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?

It's critical that Rep. Mica hears from his constituents how angry they are about his vote. Put a personal message inside an empty prescription drug bottle and deliver it any time during business hours.
