What are you gonna do?

Score one for corporate cronyism and environmental rape. We're pretty much stuck with the current set of assholes for the next four years. That's four years for everyone who doesn't like it to DO SOMETHING.

Even if you're a Bush supporter (although to my knowledge I don't have any of them reading my journal), there are bound to be things that you don't like on the political map. And, of course, if you're not a Bush supporter, there are a lot of those things.

So what are you going to do? You're not gonna sit on your ass and mope and whine for the whole for years, are you?

I want a pledge from each of my readers to get out and do something active to move things in the direction you'd like to see them go in the next four years. Tell me what it is, share ideas, get motivated. Let's work together to get the revolution started.


I will volunteer 2 hours a month to work in the direction I'd like to go. That will focus on the same sex marriage issue in MA, on environmental issues nationally, and on personal freedoms nationally, especially relating to the (goddamn motherfucking) Patriot Act.

I will go to anti-war rallies, and I will encourage other people to get more actively involved.
