66. But they already have so much money, although I am quick to believe that
Edited on Sun May-29-05 02:40 AM by Melodybe
Corporations in general are greedy and will always want all of our money, part of me feels like they have already tapped America pretty dry.

Everyone I know is hurting for money more than they were 5 years ago.

I kind of feel like protests are most important for letting us on the left know our true numbers.

I know it is scary to have a protest and not many folks show up, but when hundreds, thousands, or millions show it is always awe inspiring. To be a part of it, to be surronded by those you know agree with you is a very beautiful thing.

I want to portest, I want to start seeing our real numbers, you read the polls America is turning on Bush. Don't believe their lie about Bush's approval, they are giving him about 10 points, look at the issues questions as of late we always are on the winning side, the media, Terry Schiavo, the war, SS, Tom Delay, the filibuster, etc. It is impossible for people to feel so strongly about these issues and be happy about our current political situation and Bushco.

Protesting is masses of like minds and hearts shouting truth to power, that is its history and that is why we do it.
