I'M ANGRY, Boy Am I Angry...

World Can't Wait, October 5, 2006. World Can't Wait????

Hell, I can't wait. To the Barricades! Pickforks and Tiki Torches. This is the LAST chance (before Nov.7th) to let this administration, this congress, the Media,our fellow citizens know just what real patriots are thinking.

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.

I survived the progressive turf wars and managed to not join a "group" or take a side. We have all got to come together. OCTOBER 5TH. New York, DC, San Fran, Orlando, in cities across America. Including my own Gainesville Florida.

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.


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.

And I'm ANGRY! I lost my last good job after 9/11, lost my middle class house too. My husband's job went to India. failure. My hubby got another job for$22K LESS. We filed our bankruptcy just before the legislation. I now live in a rental trailer. I'm going to be the next Kartina victim of this administration's 2006 hurricane season.

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.
