TAX THE RICH, END THE WAR
Nicholas von Hoffman, The Nation
Congress should levy a "Victory Over Terror" tax on the superrich which would expire once our troops are safely home.

BUMPER STICKER QUOTE - Hey, Bush Supporters: Embarrassed Yet?

Message From TrueMajorityAction – AmericaSaysNo.org
Wow. You guys are amazing! Thanks to you and the other volunteer activists from both the America Says NO! project and our partners at MoveOn, there were over 1,000 events nationwide protesting Bush's escalation plan. The message that Americans do NOT want more troops was heard loud and clear in every state. And Congress has been put on high alert to do their part to change the course in Iraq. You can bet that we'll be watching. You can read first hand reports and see photos of last night's events and even post your own story at:

http://www.truemajorityaction.org/SaidNo or go to http://americasaysno.radicaldesigns.org/reports

We'll be piling on the pressure in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to your inbox for more ways you can make a difference. Thanks again for making this happen.

[Duchess Note - Along with fellow Kucitizen (Stephanie), I participated in this event on the upper westside of Manhattan near 96th Street. Many of us were bundled up against the cold wind displaying signs, banners and handing out flyers. Pedestrians and motorists gave us the thumbs up and took flyers. There are many New Yorkers who are against war and for peace. We see very few who are pro-war. They sometimes anger us, but mostly we feel pity, as they've been misinformed and brainwashed by the likes of Fox News, etc. Join us in protesting this war and occupation of Iraq, as well as the Bush Regimes escalation of more troops. Liberals and Progressives do support the troops, just not the government and certainly not this illegal war. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the troops and their families. You are in our hearts ... always.]
