Protest at City Hall

"Where have all the protesters gone?"
Reminder! Reminder! Reminder!

This Wednesday I will return to City Hall to let them know that we want a new council come November of 2012. Randy not running, Sam not running and Amanda is running against Mary Nolan. We told the City Council not to vote for the JTTF, they did. We told the City Council not to vote for the Sit-Lie (lie) ordinance, they did. We told them not to cave in on the covering of the reservoirs, they did. Two out of the three up for reelection are not running because they know they would lose, only Commissioner Fritz remains to defeat. We have a great opportunity to vote in 3 new people, a majority of the council and we should do that to send a message that if you go against your constituents, you are gone--finished--out of there--can you hear me yet Commissioners Salzman and Fish. We honored ourselves by protesting against these measures but got busy with other stuff, rejoin the fight----we are winning this one.

We should ask all candidates if they will rescind these terrible ordinances and actions by this group of "Dropes!"

I be the old guy in the red shirt, laughing most of the time. Yelling some of the time but always hopeful for people to get into the streets!

* Why laughter?? Because without it I would have gone insane years ago.

Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, "Henry, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?"
