Well, as the old saying goes “the worm seems to have turned. At Politico we have this article about the” Million American March on Washington“. While the author seems to be able to keep his bias at bay through most of the article my favorite part is at the end .
White House officials on Friday professed to know nothing of the planned demonstrations. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs queried reporters about the planners and their issues. “I don’t know who the group is,” he said with a shrug.
Other Democrats suggested the protesters are embittered, fringe conservatives fueled by radio and TV talk-show hosts. “There’s a lot of energy, but it’s negative energy,” said Democratic strategist John Lapp. “At the end of the day, Republicans are left with bomb-throwing, screaming, frothing and a lot of opposition.”
Let us remember:

While protest is a deeply ingrained American right and duty, it is not so much what one protests as HOW someone protests that is a question. Groups can protest in appropriate ways within the laws of decency and civil behavior. As long as everyone understands that one persons cause celeb is another’s cause de jour. and we keep our emotions in control protest is a good thing. If your family has a tendency to heart disease someone else’s family my have cancer concerns, both are important and neither is more important than another. That said pitting the snail darter against a human child should be a no brainer. Seriously………sentient being trumps animal every time, sorry PETA.
Here’s the bottom line, we all need to stop concentrating on “ME” and start concentrating on “OUR COUNTRY”. We need to think of the common good using common sense as opposed to the ‘do something even if it’s wrong”. There are times when inaction is preferable to frenetic incompetent mistakes.
“Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.” Corozon Aquino former Pres. Republic of the Philippines.
