Good morning. Slowly sipping Boca Java and moving around. Son goes late today to school so the house is still quiet.
Today, according to The World Can't Wait, is A Day of Mass Resistance. I have read about this on a couple of my favorite blogs, Michelle Malkin and Rick Moran over at Rightwing Nuthouse. Rick Moran, by the way, is the brother of ABC News reporter Terry Moran. Rick is the black sheep of the family, as he is conservative and all the many siblings in the Moran family lean left.
Here's the idea - drive out the "Bush regime" .
Here's the plan - mass resistance.
The group calling for this action is World Can't Wait. Here is their mission statement:
"World Can't Wait is organizing people living in the United States to take responsibility to stop the whole disastrous course led by the Bush administration. We seek to create a political situation where the Bush administration's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking U.S. society is reversed.
We seek to mobilize to express their outrage, to speak the truth, to act with urgency and form an organized political resistance. We welcome any individuals and groups who agree that the Bush Regime should be driven out, whatever their political party affliation or lack thereof. We reach out to people who have been fooled by Bush, and to those who have been most seriously affected by the outrages inflicted by the Bush Regime."
This leaves two questions :
1. Does this mean that this group desires a President Cheney?
2. "Those who have been most seriously affected", etc.,- who,
the terrorists and those financially supporting them?
Drama, drama everywhere. Not an ounce of common sense to spare.
Now, I'm all for peaceful protest. I am a child of the sixties, after all, and was raised on the whole peace and love, all we are saying is give peace a chance, don't trust anyone over 30, we don't need no stinkin' rules. I'm with them so far. But maybe it's the fact that the 60's are long gone and the reality of the new century are upon us, but I don't get it.
President Bush has 2 years left in office. He will leave Washington and retire to the ranch in Crawford, Tx. Wouldn't it make more sense, common sense, to lasso this energy into working for elections that would actually affect the outcome this group desires on a legislative field, if reversing policy is the goal?
The group wants people to bypass work and school today and take to the streets. The way I see it, this just results in less money in the pockets of the protesters and less knowledge in the brains of the students. Does that help their cause?
Unfortunately, in reality the protests lead by this group and others most often aligned with it, such as Not In My Name, led to unpeaceful actions. They are a big sponsor in marches against the WTO which have destroyed downtown areas of cities like Seattle with vandalism and violent acts against people and property. They align with A.N.S.W.R., a group lead by avowed Communist and Socialist activists.
Where's the love?
It's the question on my mind this week. Where's the common sense?
The group could take a page from the play book of George Soros and sponsor groups who ambush congresspeople days before an election with information gathered over the past couple of years and feed it to a major news network...
