Got to give President Obama a failing grade on his sense of timing and history.

 

On the eighth anniversary of the day that President Bush started the Iraq War, our current president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, ordered American warships and jets to bomb Libya.

 

And, yes, I voted for the guy.

 

The only comfort is that the McCain/Palin team would've had Marines on the shores of Tripoli by now.

 

Hey, ho, way to go, Obama.

Graininess is due to using a high ISO. I haven't quite learned how to use a flash in these types of situations or if it should be used here at all.

May 9, 1970, Washington DC. Protester marks the fatal shootings at Kent State University on May 4. 1970.

“I wanted to be a cheerleader, a sorority sister, a good student. But my life was changing. So many young kids were coming home in body bags—ending the war became more important to me than anything.”

 

1970. Faced with the possibility of her own brothers having to go to war in Vietnam, Kent State student Roseann Canfora first began to question the war. After she, with others, were locked in a building where they had planned to observe a disciplinary hearing for some of the leaders of Students for a Democratic Society, she became more intensely involved, joining antiwar marches and demonstrations in Kent, Cleveland, Washington, and elsewhere. Then she joined her brother, Alan, at the fateful protest on May 4, against President Nixon's invasion of Cambodia. Ohio National Guardsmen, occupying the campus, fired into the unarmed students, killing four and wounding nine, including Alan. “I don't think any of us will ever forget that cold, hideous silence that set in after the firing stopped.” A presidential commission later found "the indiscriminate firing of rifles into a crowd of students and the deaths that followed were unnecessary, unwarranted, and inexcusable."

Pentagon Police haul an unidentified man away to a waiting bus to be removed from Pentagon property. He, and the others arrested, would be charged in Federal Court with "refusal to obey a lawful order" according a Pentagon spokeswoman.

We've all seen it before.

2 concerned people, 1 shy in the background, 1 dancing hippy and 1 obsessed with herself. That's our demographics!

 

The no-right turn sign says it, really.

His isolation was in stark contrast to all of the noise nearby

Mendocino County anti-war protesters took to the streets to ask, "What Is TRULY indecent?" This image of mine will be featured in the upcoming May issue of JANE Magazine.

 

I have to say THANK YOU to all the brave and courageous people across our country who took a stand for PEACE today. Bless you all.

 

Everyone: Please feel free to vent your freedom of speech right here - whether you agree with PEACE or not! Let's at least talk about it...

May 9, 1970, Washington DC. I remember this guy had a mantra: "If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem." Which one was he?

U.S. out of the Middle East rally Saturday August 5, 2006

This week we said goodbye, after more than 15 years and 172,010 miles, to our 1992 Volvo 240. I had hoped it would be the only car we'd ever buy, but its penchant for randomly refusing to start - typically when parked in tow zones, or even one time after it stalled out in a traffic lane entering 30th Street Station (fortunately my string quartet was with me to help push the car out of traffic) - made it too much of a safety risk. No one was able to to identify the problem because - of course! - it always started when we had it in for service. I was especially irked that with its IMPEACH bumper sticker, we couldn't hold out for a mere 222 more days - until January 20, 2009.

 

It seems like there are less and less such bumper stickers on the road. I used to see the "If you're not appalled, you're not paying attention" bumper sticker - one of my personal favorites - all the time, but I haven't seen it in quite a while. I hope this doesn't mean people are giving up, but it's difficult not to think that there's a much more quiescent mood now than a few years ago. Bumper stickers might seem trivial, but I think that there's value in any public display of resistance to the lawlessness of the Bush regime - no matter what form it takes.

 

I got the IMPEACH bumper sticker in 2006 while I was attending a national HIV/AIDS legal conference in Portland, Oregon. I stepped out of the hotel lobby one morning during a break, and these fine folks were marching down the street, pounding a drum, and demanding George W. Bush's impeachment. That made my day. Their bumper sticker was only $1 and they're still in business -

Portland Peaceful Response Coalition. We got the "War Without End - Not In Our Name" sticker before the Iraq war began, more than 5 years ago. In March 2008, not in our name closed, although the people involved have taken their activism elsewhere.

 

I hope that the old Volvo will now be recycled. Overall, its MPG wasn't that bad for a car of its size (and size matters, if you're a double bassist - we actually carted both kids, the dog, a cello, and a double bass from Philadelphia to Maine and back in this car), I drove it mostly as transportation of last resort, and by not buying a new car every several years, we reduced our impact on the environment.
