Cool... Like, the World Can't Like Wait
At this moment of urgent necessity, as the Bush program is being locked into place via Alito and Bush-authorized NSA spying, do all you can to stop this now. At this moment of great opportunity, as millions want this President gone, and the "I" word of impeachment is circulating, let’s build a movement powerful enough to drive out the Bush Regime.The "I" word is probably circulating "at this moment" amongst the same crowds as the word Nazi, but how serious are they?
Their current promotion, leads me to suspect they wish to attract kids and other easily influenced, yet politically underdeveloped people to join what is in my opinion, one of the least intelligent political movements or activities of the last few years. It continues:
Get your bus tickets NOW to take our message to the White House on Sat. Feb. 4th!Sounds fun for kids no? The fun continues...
Here’s the calendar of activities leading up to the Jan. 31st State of the Union protests all over the country (in Atlanta at CNN Center), and the Feb. 4th demonstration in Washington DC at the White House:
1. Great Weekend for WCW
2. Wed. Jan. 25th – Weekly Organizing Meetings at Java Monkey at 7:30 PM
3. Fri. Jan. 27th - WCW and WRFG Movie Night at 7:30 PM - Free!
1. Great Weekend for WCW - We have had a great weekend! On Friday World Can't Wait placed a full page ad in the national New York Times and that night Showbiz Tonight on CNN Headline News featured the celebrities that have signed the World Can't Wait Call.Wow! Fun, celebrities, and none of that boring "political" stuff anywhere. Where do I sign up? Here's the plan:
TUESDAY JAN. 31ST – STATE OF THE UNION/STATE OF EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATION AT CNN CENTER AT 8:00 PMI presume use of the term "symbolically", means a total flop can be considered a "symbolic" success.
We will have a permitted rally at the south end of Centennial Olympic Park, across the street from CNN Center to Bring the Noise and Drown Out Bush's Lies: In large cities and town squares across the country we will rally one hour before Bush's address. At 9:00 PM let the world hear us as we symbolically drown out Bush's lies - bring your own noise -- drums, pots and pans, musical instruments -- your voice. Let taxi horns blare and church bells ring, as we bring our own state of the union BUSH STEP DOWN!
This is a consistent theme for World Can't Wait. Read my previous report to see how little thought has gone into "what next" after they "Drive out Bush". Nothing much has changed. It seems this is a group organized for kids, however clearly not by kids. Kids would have more of a plan. Enjoy banging your saucepans children. The grown-ups will be trying to listen to the President's speech.
Nobody is forcing you to listen.
However, there are plenty of people who would like to listen, without having to try and listen over the top of some "young people" banging saucepan lids and tooting car horns as their contribution to political debate.
Some of the commentary on your blog give an insight into your opinions. I don't believe you are a fanatic. However, comments which appear in your blog such as:
"Fuck you George Bush. I seriously hate you and your masters (Rove, Daddy Bush and Money)."
tend to give one an 'insight' into your political views.
Regardless, none of your claims of "direct marketing messages" address my earlier point, which is that World Can't Wait don't seem to have one. They haven't thought past the "Get rid of Bush" meme. It's very easy running the country from the sidelines isn't it?
Thanks for visiting.
