Progress! Peace!

Well, the 15 min. twice a day bit has done some wonders on the "fish quilt" - Almost time to roll it again. This is good. At this rate, I'll have it done soon and will be able to start in on the "LOUD Quilt". I'm pretty much settled on what the fish quilt will do - it looks so PERFECT against the pale blue walls of the sewing room, so I think it will live there as the bedspread on the trundle bed in there. The LOUD quilt may be just a "fold it up at the end of the bed in case it's too cold" one. It's about time for me to start thinking about making the repairs to Veggie 2 again also.

Peacechick Mary who has been an inspiration on my journey through the valley of the shadow of Bush's Atrocities, has found a way for us to stand up and be counted (and probably end up on some TSA "watch list" as Kvatch points out)

Thanks to John from Left in Aboite, I got to see some awesome pictures of the march in Washington DC this past weekend. John was there, as was Robert Rouse of "Left of Centrist". Robert's coverage includes one photo that I found so profoundly disturbing that I cannot but comment.

In this photo, a man, looking to be about my age, or perhaps a bit older, is holding up both the middle finger of his right hand, and a sign in his left hand that features a peace symbol over the word "Sucks". Peace sucks. Fuck you, peace sucks. This is what the people who believe in Christianity, in "Family Values", in "Compassionate Conservatism" think. This is what they want for our country - war, division, hatred, death.


They're wrong. 3200 dead wrong. 600,000+ dead wrong.

In the end, if someone isn't on the list Kvatch is concerned about, I will ask them why not? Thanks for signing up and encouraging others, too.

I also signed up today. It's time.

Robert Rouse said...

One thing the photos from the march don't show - as we were passing the man with the "peace sucks" sign, we started chanting "USA, USA" and over half the counter demonstrators booed and gave us the finger. Classy folks.

America's main economic engines are war (making things for wars) and transportation.

Until that changes, nothing changes. It won't make much difference who is in office.

Kvatch said...

Hey...thanks for the mention. You know, I'm still getting comments on that one from No_slappz. Seems he just can't leave it alone.

I'm trying to see how few words I can use to goad him into another comment. Quite amusing.

"Conservatives" (the modern version) would rather the earth burn around their feet, than support anything a liberal might suggest. "Peace" is a dirty word to them, for they are, and forever have been, a warring cult.

Vincent - if you don't know what you're talking about, maybe you should stfu.

It's quite obvious from your comment that you have no clue what you're talking about, so I'll give your comment ALL THE CONSIDERATION IT DESERVES.

*ignores vincent*

It seems that Vincent is a full blown alcoholic at only 23, interested in mostly booze and gambling. And of course knows it all. I suppose that he will self destruct in a few more years.

Or stay with Mommy for many more years instead of going out to become a man. Hey, what ever, he's just a speck of dust and won't have much effect on the world one way or the other.

So It's laundry day here at Polly's Honky Tonk Saloon and Whorehouse already. Have a nice day Sew. Hugs.

Sewmouse said...

Oh - is "Vincent" also "Vincio"?
In that case...

Buh Bye, Vincent.
You were told to leave and not return.

John Good said...

How can you be against peace? These people are hate-filled, misinformed, and misguided. Hopefully we can somehow reach them through the fog. .
