It was a powerful image: a lone woman standing up to the most powerful man on earth in memory of her fallen son. Read the rest of this entry »

Anybody who has given a son to this country has made an enormous sacrifice, and you have to be sympathetic. But enough already.”
ABC Nightly News Anchor, Charles Gibson August 18, 2009

This is Horseshit

“It is not if we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists will we be?”Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

I don’t care if I get accused of being too “extreme” for bucking the (cyst)em by doing everything form camping in a ditch in Crawford, Tx to non-violent civil disobedience to, lately, running for Congress as (oh no!) an independent.
