20. I am thinking more like pissed off people, pure and simple. I believe....

 

that regardless of race, culture, ethnicity, social background or who ever you associate with. The uprising has started, the 1 percenters have not seen or are unwilling to believe that the tierney that has been imposed on us is going to back fire. Its happening right now.

RR

I will leave you with this....

16. I really learned a lot from that vid, I'm much older than this particular generation and was not

paying too much attention (raising three kids and going to school). I can definitely say that Henry is far more than a pretty face. He's brilliant..

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1017140696

(Chorus)
I've got a dream and I can't get rid of it,
I believe in every bit of it,
Been stuck inside of me,
Ever since 1963

Saw the earlier part on CSPAN. I saw Terry O'Neill, president of NOW, and thought she was awesome. So were the other speakers. A great day in DC.
