Progressive Action Spot

"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

    I am so proud I cannot stand it.

    Before they moved out of state he would come over and look through vinyls and politely ask if he might have them. Then he would display the albums in his room like they were posters (there really is nothing like the cover of an album...)

    Before he moved I sent him away with one of the last boxes of my old records.

    I don't know if there was any Buffalo Springfield in them or not, but he has made good use of how it used to be.

    I am so proud.

    Oh, Coyote, I gave him a stack of my old Yes albums...

    I knew that they were going to a good place.

    Kiddo and I went to the war protest tonight. Afterwards they have a picnic potluck at the park. Kiddo made deviled eggs.

    We leave the signs out facing the street during the potluck.

    Some guy parked in the street and pulled some of the American flags off of a large sign that said "Peace Now" and then started knocking over the signs.

    He yelled over the the park where we were and said "your signs are falling down".

    A couple of the protesters went out and started picking up the signs. He tried to steal the flags, his wife was with him and participating in knocking the signs down. When one of the protesters asked for the flags back

    he threw them on the groung.

    Really hateful and mean.

    It was sad.

    Yes, it was truly disgusting.

    When I told husband about it he was infuriurated (sp?)

    I am glad that he was not there, he might have acted harshly.

    Hard to hold a peace sign while kicking someone's ass. But he believes that we are in a battle to save our democracy and that the "tree of liberty must be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." (Thomas Jefferson)
