Cindy Sheehan: THIS IS HORSESHI*
(Special thanks to James McMurtry and the Heartless Bastards)
These days, when speaking truth to power can’t make the cut against celebrity endorsements, enter Cindy Sheehan (who is running against Nancy Pelosi.)
“We should all walk off of our jobs and refuse to work and refuse to be cogs in the wheels of psychotic consumerism until our troops, military contractors and permanent bases are removed from Iraq and Afghanistan. We should, but most of us won't. We won't because it may mean that we would lose something of "value." Material possessions are so transitory, as are our lives. We can leave a lasting impression by our courageous activism and moral sacrifice, or we can leave a pile of rusting metal or rotting wood. I choose the former for myself.”
Tell it, Sista Cindy!!!
“We should come out of our comas of too much TV news and not enough non-biased information to push for alternatives to fossil fuels that are clean and renewable and protest nuclear facilities and off-shore oil drilling like we used to in the olden days when people actually cared enough about not poisoning our world to get off of their couches or (today) out from behind their computer screens to do something constructive instead of complacently shelling out hundreds of dollars a week for gasoline and food.”
Will she beat Nancy Pelosi?
