Un-Inaugural Option One

The proverbial voting with your wallet:
"Not One Damn Dime Day
Thursday, January 20, 2005 (Inauguration Day)

On Not One Damn Dime Day those who oppose what is happening in our name in
Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer
spending. During Not One Damn Dime Day please don't spend money. Not one
damn dime for gasoline. Not one damn dime for necessities or for impulse
purchases in person or online or by credit card. Not one damn dime for
anything for 24 hours.

It doesn't really matter that everyone will be out spending what they didn't
the next day -- a point or two will have been made. Since our religious
leaders will not speak out against the war in Iraq, since our political
leaders don't have the moral courage to oppose it, Inauguration Day,
Thursday, January 20, 2005 is Not One Damn Dime Day in America.

On Not One Damn Dime Day, please boycott Walmart, KMart and Target. Please
don't go to the mall or the local convenience store. Please don't buy any
fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter). For 24 hours, please do
what you can to shut down the retail economy. The object is simple. Remind
the people in power that the war in Iraq is immoral and illegal; that they
are responsible for starting it and that it is their responsibility to stop
it. Not One Damn Dime Day is to remind them, too, that they work for the
people of the United States of America, not for the international
corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations and
funnel cash into the coffers of US politicians.

Not One Damn Dime Day is about supporting the troops. The politicians put
the troops in harm's way. Now more than 1,200 brave young Americans and some
estimated 100,000 Iraqis have died. The politicians owe our troops a plan --
a way to come home.

There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left- or right-wing agenda
to rant about. On Not One Damn Dime Day you take action by doing nothing.
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed. For 24 hours, nothing
gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind our religious leaders and our
politicians of their moral responsibility to end the war in Iraq and give
America back to the people."

Dear Kate,
Hello again as you know we have communicated before, and I still like to think that we can disagree in a civil way. First things let's take a moment of silence to honor Dr. Martin Luther King on the day of celibration. ....... I disagree with you on your "not one damn dime day" , as you know Neal Boortz is a "Dr. Ego" libertarian and supports the right for our troops to be in the middle east, both today and in the years to come. Well anyway my problem with G.Bush is that is is "pusssy footing" around in the middle east and with N.Korea and should have already gotten to the final action with both concerns, if he had we would not have a disagreement. As for your not one damn dime day, I will buy something expensive, I will visit each and every store on your list. I am giving the last bits of my familys business to the kidney foundation this week, I will work to date that material for 1/20/05. Lastly I will get down on my knees and say a prayer of thanks that the citizens of American did in majority vote for President Bush, and that he will actually stand up for some individual freedoms. As you should know I do see the democrat party as pure socialism, and I will in a civil manner do what ever I can to change the minds of whomever I can reach. I hope that I will be able to blog you again, and I send my message with high hopes that we can disagree but still remain blog neighbors and alway be civil. For I also want there to be "social" programs, but it should be my private donation whichs funds it, not the federal "mommie state government" which takes it from me by forced taxation.

Hello, Kate
If you go to he has posted a 'bucks for bush' thursday. He even links back to your web-site. His thing is that if liberals are taking the day off then the 'bushies' should take up the slack. So you are reaching sombody.

If you read my weblog

you will see how I stand on zealots and demagogues.

What is worst about how
our country has been run
is how the administration
has subverted the will
of the people.
