This is what we're missing from our nightly news. Americans are not taking responsibility for the horror that is going on in their name. Somebody needs to be held to account for all the pain and suffering that we're being deliberately kept in the dark about. It's time to shine a light on the festering wound, there is no other way to heal it.

The reality is ugly as hell. But we have to force ourselves to look. Ultimately, we're the ones responsible for this. If we'd only admit that, we can put a stop to it.

Thank you so much to the Grannies and their continually courageous direct actions and to Joe Anybody, our faithful documentarian.

Legislation and bureaucracy are wastes of time. There are hundreds of millions of us and thousands of them, and we're losing. Hopefully your enthusiasm and effort and the direct actions of everyone in the community will open the eyes of a few more to the fact that WE WIELD THE POWER, and that by sitting silently on the sidelines WE ARE COMPLICIT IN CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

Thanks again. See you in the streets

You all f***ing ROCK!!!

That was a BRILLIANT idea! Disrupt the consumer extravaganza by showing the the truth of the very fucking thing they are supporting (in essence, whether they realize it or not). I have always thought highly of you guys, and this is another reason you are so special. Keep it up - we need you!
