Which of course pisses the ever-lovin hell outta moi. They replace it with soundbites about Hillary sniping at Obama and the reverse. This is a planned move I believe..call me crazy, but I do believe that. The anniversary is coming up for the start of the Iraq War and it’s their attempt to marginalize all the protests and demonstrations that will occur on that day..you know the day right?
Anyway..I made this video below a while back. Crooks and Liars liked it so much they featured it in one of their Friday night video posts. Its Richard Thompson’s Dad’s Gonna Kill Me set to pictures. Dad is Baghdad of course. Its about what the war is doing to our soldiers..you know..killing and maiming them, turning them into card-carrying members of the PTSD club. It’s about how this administration supports the troops. It’s about three tours in hell and hoping your number doesn’t fucking come up in this most ungodly of lotteries.
We can not forget.. We can not allow this war to be shoved to the back pages or become invisible. So please watch it and then sign up to write about this war on March 19th via the Blogswarm set up by blogger bud LibHomo. I heart him and his effort to keep this war front and center in our hearts and minds. If your really an activist, you will get off your ass that day and attend a march or rally near you..there are plenty of them planned. This spot will also direct you to actions happening near you. I know many of us, for whatever reason, are armchair activists. There is no shame in that. But that said..if your a true believer that this war is the biggest travesty created by the idiots known as BushCo, you will take part in a march or rally. On to the musical interlude..
