Thanks for mentioning this, eRobin -- and for the "gifted writer" plug/exaggeration :).

What I might have mentioned but didn't was the sidelong and averted "weirdo" glances by many passersby -- though there were also thumbs up and honks, to be fair.

I think sometimes half of what we're doing as impeachment supporters (and voting reform advocates, and war/torture opponents, and...) is just re-staking out a claim on being public citizens exercising freedom of speech. And doing so out in the real world of air and streets and buildings and people, as opposed to online (which is important too, of course).

I agree 100%. Frequently someone will drive past the weekly peace vigil I do with about 10 other people and shout something like "Do something productive!" We, who are exercising our First Amendment rights to end an illegal war that's bleeding us dry in every way possible answer "We are!"

It's true when they say you lose your rights if you don't use them.

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
