World Can't Wait, October 5, 2006. World Can't Wait????
I won't re-iterate the long list of crimes, propaganda, fear mongering and all the rest. If you're reading this you already know.
But here's the thing. I've signed every on-line petition. I've called my Congressman and Senators. I've e-mailed, snail-mailed and tried to get an appointment. NADA, Nuttin'.
I've joined in the small local protests. I was pepper hosed at the Counter Inaugural in 2005. I participated in the Sept. 24th protest in DC. (600,000 CNN). Worked on campaigns, belived in electoral politics.Couldn't afford to make it to Camp Democracy.
Whether you are Code Pink, or UFPJ, or A.N.S.W.E.R. or PDA, or Greens, or CCAWT, or Quakers, or Dems, or ducks, or cat lovers, or money lovers. You have got to participate. You've just GOTTA.
OCTOBER 5TH IS THE VERY LAST CHANCE BEFORE THE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS TO GET OFF YOUR SEATS AND INTO THE STREETS. STAND UP, SPEAK UP, SHOW UP!. (yes, I wanted to shout)
In EVERY town, on every street, at every TV, Radio, Print office. October 5th. Put in your day off request now. Right NOW! Skip school and tell them why. Bring a note from your conscience.
You don't have to go far (who can afford the gas anyway), you don't have to do much. Holding a sign with thousands of others is plenty.
And I'll say it again. This is the LAST CHANCE to Speak UP Speak OUT, SHOW UP.
Here's another thing. I've read everything I can get my eyes on. Ya'll read them too. Borrowed the books from the library, and even bought one or two. Saw all the DVD's and bitched, just like ya'll.
Oh boy, am I ANGRY!
I have 24 year old twin sons, ripe for the comming "Compulsary Service" I have 3 grandchildren ('nuf said about THAT).
I am ANGRY! I'm done with being polite. I'm done with reasoned argument. I'm done with trying to prod awake the sleepy. I'm done re-framing the issue. Sheesh. I'm done being co-opted by my elected officials.
