So what’s good? My wife told me this morning that we are a “service economy, that we don’t produce anything and the first sector to go in bad economic times is the service sector”. I beg to differ. Industry is still alive, if not well in this country. We still produce more airplanes, cars, computers and heavy machinery such as earth moving equipment than any other nation in the world. (I shouldn’t have mentioned this, once the bankers read what I’ve said they’ll outsource all of that too).
I listened to John Edwards recently. Let’s face it, unless there is a big upset in the Democratic Primaries, Gravel and Dennis are toast. I hope I’m wrong. Let’s see. I’ll be voting for Dennis if he starts picking up steam, If I’m wasting my vote in the SC Primary, I’ll go for John Edwards. I’m beginning to like what he’s saying. He said that he doesn’t accept corporate money and he recently said that the insurance companies, the big pharmaceutical companies run America and it’s got to stop. O K John, you got me so far, I’m listening…
What’s right about America is the people you love that live here.What’s right is what’s coming in September. This is the start people. This is the second time I’ve done this, like many of you out there. I see the anti-war progressive movement clarifying and melding into a force to be reckoned with. I saw the same in the early 70’s. This General Strike 9/11 is only a “baby-step”. It has to start somewhere. Let’s use this opportunity to make a statement. Let’s use it as practice for bigger and better ways to express our frustration with a Deaf Congress and a sick out-of-control Executive branch.
We can express our contempt for Bush and Cheney in September by attending the rallies and stating rallies in every city for the people that can’t make it to NYC or DC! This is what’s right with America. These rallies aren’t “sponsored” by Boeing, Prudential or PPA (the Pharmaceutical Partnership of America). The people of America sponsor it. It’s a grassroots partnership of Americans that want to be heard. That’s what’s good about our country! This is a movement, don’t doubt it for a minute! Unless something alters the current reality, this movement will grow larger and larger until there are demonstrations in every city, every town. There will be a permanent display of the anti-war movement that the mainstream media can no longer ignore. This movement will be an in-your-face, do or die expression of disgust with this administration and with Congress and their do nothing attitude. If we accomplish nothing, at least we can show the rest of the world and this government that we won’t blindly accept authority when the policies go against everything we believe.
That’s the way I see it.
