Peace Vigil Iowa City, Aug 17 2005 [Aug. 18th, 2005|09:07 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

So, click on the picture see the whole set.

I went because when it comes to a peace movement, this is it. I oppose the war. So, even though I'm not sure Cindy Sheehan's thing down in Crawford is anything more than a stunt, I went. I was glad I did. A lot of people I know were there, and no wild-eyed radicals, unless I count as one. A lot of middle aged men and women with a smattering of young kids and college students. I'm already on record over and over again about how I feel about the War, and Bush, so I won't belabor the point again here.

I honestly don't know what I could be doing about Iraq. I'm part of the half of the country that Bush will never listen to. But people who don't think the war is a good thing should figure out how to make some noise.

Oh and here's one for moog55. I present your Arch-Nemesis: Dave Bradley of West Liberty Iowa, who distinguished himself at this Peace Vigil by singing -- badly off key -- "Give Peace A Chance." Yeah, Dave, give peace a chance and STFU.

it looks as though dave has given KFC a chance and has given McDonalds a chance and definitely has given beer a chance.

i don't really consider him a nemesis per se. i kinda just feel sorry for him and for liberals in general...

I feel sorry for conservatives. It's got to be hard to maintain beliefs when reality contradicts them.

Either 'liberals' or 'conservatives' are deluded, and history will tell. I know how I'm betting.

cool pics.

i really debated going to one of the 15 vigils in the boston area. i decided not to go because i haven't really decided about the "bring our troops home" situation. i fervently beleive that we shouldn't have gone to war and i think that bush is a putz, but now that we have been there for years and caused major caos in their country, is it right to pull our troops out and say "see yah iraq"? i think that it is our responsability to stick it out now and set the country right. and it sucks that we have lost so much already and will probably continue to keep loosing american in the process.

i wish that people would think more clearly about the consequences when the join the military or when parents are so proud to have their kids join up. soldiers die, alot. alot more than teachers or engineers or electricians... and it really sucks.

just rambling on i guess. as i said, my ideas are not yet completely fomulated and i would love your response.

part of me really does wish i had gone though, i have so much anger and frustration built up towards bush, it would have been nice to get a little of that out.
