For Shame Mr. President, For Shame - It Doesn't Become You Or Our Nation

If you haven't read Cindy Sheehan's account of what happened to her last night you should. I found it by way of Moxie Grrrl. The shame should be deep and scour the scars of those who fought for the very rights of ours that were violated by this administration. For that, I say: For shame, Mr. President. Your actions embarrass us all.
After I had my personal items inventoried and my fingers printed, a nice Sgt. came in and looked at my shirt and said, "2245, huh? I just got back from there."

I told him that my son died there. That's when the enormity of my loss hit me. I have lost my son. I have lost my First Amendment rights. I have lost the country that I love. Where did America go? I started crying in pain.

I wore the shirt to make a statement. The press knew I was going to be there and I thought every once in awhile they would show me and I would have the shirt on. I did not wear it to be disruptive, or I would have unzipped my jacket during George's speech. If I had any idea what happens to people who wear shirts that make the neocons uncomfortable that I would be arrested...maybe I would have, but I didn't.

I sure wish that I could suggest she was fabricating this to make some sort of astronomical amounts of cash for a book deal, but really, you can't make this shit up. Read it before commenting, please.

I wish she WOULD have waited to unzip the jacket in the middle of the speech.

Big Brother is watching

Neil Shakespeare just discovered how to get on the No-Fly list.

Perhaps, if the blog community could get it's act together, along with the 600k who have signed up at, a mass act of civil disobedience?

No harm, no foul : spam Homeland Security

Break something that's already broken, Homeland Security.

Email Homeland Security and ask to be put on the No-Fly list. 'I'm dangerous because I don't believe the lies my government tells me about making me safer by spying on me.'

You mean, Catch-22, they wouldn't have to put nut jobs who asked to be put on the list, on the list?
