Now Playing: For WAR - or - Against WAR
Let me tell you all about my day today.
So first I spent an hour today out on the sidewalk in Portland Oregon (defending the 6th amendment of the Constitution and pushing for peace with the Veterans of Ch 72)
I was "Protesting This Stinking War!"
Directly in Front of the Federal Building, downtown with 5 other guys
I think they were all Veterans
I stood in solidarity for an hour, with the "Veterans For Peace" vigil that is there almost daily
Their group "Veteran for Peace" are there 6 day a week every week!
11:00 - 1:00 (except Sunday's)
Then at 4:00 - 5 this afternoon I went and stood on the overpass over Highway 84 around Lloyd Center I stood out there by myself with a big sign that says IMPEACH BUSH
I was also holding a tall flag pole with a red/white/blue wind sock and then a 12 x 12 PEACE sign. Cars and trucks were Honking! ...some just waved....... one guy on a motor cycle popped-a-wheelie and rode at 50 miles and hour. .......! wow...then there was the guy who hung out the passenger window and was 1/2 way out yelling F* YOU and was acting like a raging fool....... I bet he likes war, he sure seemed angry!
So I was there for an hour watching tons of cars stream under me ..the sun was setting...and I felt good that I was encouraging my fellow citizens and helping motivate and push for PEACE. It was encouraging to hear the cars honking. If you think it all feels helpless ...by getting out and engaging with your fellow citizens if feels powerful to exposing and encouraging a smart peaceful world by ones own action. I felt good and I was happy for myself. (Good Job Joe!)
People are hungry for this war to end. I feel we have to get out on the street in daily and in masses and demand our government represent us.
............ why you say?........whats the point of protesting?
Funny you ask!
You are either for war/death/killing/destruction/dead children
You are for Peace/NO WAR/non-violence/Love/Harmony/alive children
EVERY FRICKING DAY THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE STANDING UP TO THIS MACHINE OF DEATH...............AND
THERE ARE THOSE THAT........ ARE NOT!
When I don't see you out there....... when I don't hear your "Right on Joe STOP the WAR!" when I don't see your bumper sticker, when I don't see your letter to the editor, or you holding a sign up to support peace and stop this war............it makes me wonder. ????
Ya .....its makes me wonder...... since I don't see you or hear you..... It makes think to myself .....if you are doing nothing or anything at all to say you want this war to stop?
Then I wonder ........are you part of the group that FLIPS ME OFF or yells obscenities as I hold my Peace sign?
Yep (your) silence ........... it makes me wonder?
I get on the average 30% who ignore me or do nothing, I get 10% who flip me off, and I get 60% who wave or honk.
Now where are you all in those figure?
I am talking about killing or not killing!
I am talking about War!
I am talking your pro war - or - anti war ?
I am wondering .....
JUST WHERE ARE YOU ON THIS ISSUE
are you number -->
[] FLIPPING OFF PROTESTERS / PRO WAR
[] IGNORING THE WHOLE ISSUE
[] ENCOURAGING PEACE AND PROTESTING WAR
Now! You are one of the three choices.......just what one?
And ask your self if its not number 3 .......why not?
Why are you not for peace?
It seems we all would choose the 3rd option
There is no way out of this question other than the 3 choices, but boiled down it comes to a simple thumbs up or thumbs down
It comes down to .......Are "you" ........ yea - or - nay?
NOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?
OUR DAMN WAR CHIEF IS OUT OF HIS MIND we are on a WAR PATH!
WHAT ARE "YOU" GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
JOIN me out in the streets everyday......bring your kids.......bring your smile........ bring hope........bring love..........and lets BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW........... STOP THIS WAR!........ protest with your voice and your body in public........ join the peace movement
GET READY FOR
COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU
