Well, it is like this; It seems that to spend not a damn dime on the day of the great charade of democracy is kind of counter intuitive, if thousands of us spend our next month's grocery money charging off on some quixotic epic to demonstrate our disgust with the dung heap that would be the capital of the free world, if only the free world were free.
To be truly effective, we would all simply turn off everything, and not spend a dime supporting the freak show. No gas, no bus rides, and most definitely no food or drink or lodging money spent anywhere near the epicenter of this grand debauch.
In fact, the mere paying of attention to that show gives it more power than it deserves. Whilst all the resources that could be helping tsunami victims are being wasted to provide security for the turd master in a place where no one should ever visit, why not provide shows of our own, in our own community? Why not steal a little of the thunder, or the fart, or whatever the jackass is trying for.
