    Well hurray for some good news, finally!

    Hopefully this sets a precident.

    Did you see the news about the impeachment poll? Most Americans favor it.

    I guess that gives you a really good indication that our representatives don’t really represent us; since Congress isn’t impeaching.

    This American favors it. Air America Radio was talking about rallies throughout the country this weekend demanding it. I hope it gets some media attention. I don’t know (exactly) how folks living under other historical dictators felt, but I’m sure beginning too…..



‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
