A Moment Together

This week Mr. Pop was away on business for a couple of days. During his travels he passed through a small Florida town. He was stopped at a light at the main intersection of the town. On one corner a group of people were holding up signs to protest the war. The truck that was stopped in front of Mr. Pop had a “Impeach Bush” sticker on it’s bumper.

The guy driving the “Impeach Bush” truck started blowing his horn and waving to the protesters. Mr. Pop joined in the horn blowing and then everyone who was stopped at the intersection began blowing their horns and waving. Mr. Pop said everyone was smiling and for that moment, having a grand time together. All were of one mind with one goal.

Just about the only one not of this mind (and out of his mind) is Bush. The people know better than he does how to run this country.

Maybe there is hope! Sounds like the sentiment is getting down to the grassroots. There are supposed to be "Impeach Bush" rallies this weekend, but I don't know what is in my town yet.

You don't know how that makes the day of the protesters who have stood out there way back when the world was not comfortable with the idea. Believe me, Mr. PoP MADE THEIR DAY! If Bluegirl comes back, tell her I put a link on my site to check for Impeach Rallies around the nation. The post is called Dream Doing.

Isn't it grand that this can happen now in the state that actually thought that the Bloody-Handed Murderer's brother was a great guy to have as Governor?

Very nice! I'm finding myself surrounded by more and more bumper stickers like these lately. Whether they are pro-peace or anti-Bush, anti-war, at least there are more of us moving in the same direction now!

Anybody interested in the rallies this weekend...check out the
A28: Nationwide Impeachment Protests action page!

Awesome!!!

I recall standing outside getting hollered at! Things CAN and DO change. Small comfort to the people who have lost their lives though of course.

It's about a lot of things- the war and our standards for violence and our view of the world in relation to us. I feel like we are weighing in on a bunch of issues, as we reject these actions done in our name.

Hope things are well with you POP these days!

Someday there will be an impeachment tsunami, and this administration will be swept away, leaving nothing but a very bad memory. I like that the wave is building.

Great story. I live in WA and am amused by the negative reactions to the bumper stickers on my car when I'm on the east (conservative) side of the mountains, and thumbs-ups I get on the west (liberal) side.

I don't want to bust any bubbles, but we have a protest here every Saturday. And while we do get lots of honking and waves, we also still get some fingers.

I don't know what it will take to end it but it will take more than protests and agreements it seems, because nothing has changed.

It may require taking up arms against our own government. Ever think about that?

i always seem to run into the duel protestors, especially around abortion clinics. I am never sure if the pro choicers know I am honking for them.

It seems like everywhere you go, these "little groups" that want the monster gone, crops up. Yet Congress can see, nor hear, any of them. ???

Also: I have taken the rather unusual step of nominating Fred The Cat for "The Thinking Blogger's Award." If he wishes to take part, please direct him to this post to participate. Cosmic Catnip welcome!!

Me again.

I screwed up the rules of The Thinking Blogger Award, Fred. It should have read:

Those who have been tagged, should now list five blogs that they themselves find makes them think, leave a comment on that person's blog telling them they have been tagged as well as also including a link to this post (Yours), so that people can easily find the origin of this award. I apologize for my error.

I urge you and your readers to take a few minutes to look at:

http://www.usalone.com/cgi-bin/transparency.cgi?paper=1&qnum=pet45

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, three members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Make your voice heard, and let others know!
