If you've missed previous opportunities to support S. 1686, the JUSTICE Act, which would roll back many of the abuses of the PATRIOT Act, well, here are two more, one from the People's Email Network and one from CREDO. And I promise this sentence will have fewer commas. Prepare yourself for the nightmare scenarios from the "liberal" media (and Pravda TV) of terrorists climbing through your bedroom windows and strangling your babies in their cribs. You'll likely see many Democratic "centrists" and "independents" on these "liberal" media broadcasts. Don't listen to them. They generally don't know what they're talking about.
I've been getting plenty of action alerts demanding a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan, as Sen. Feingold has advocated, but I'm not so much into timetables as I am into narrowing the mission -- get bin Laden, get out. So I'll continue not passing those action alerts along, and I'll instead suggest that you call your Reps and Senators and tell them those five little words after the dash in the previous sentence. This is a curious moment in the war's progression, as you know -- Gen. McChrystal wants more troops, while President Obama seems reluctant to send them. I see an opportunity for the people to take charge of this operation.
Finally, the National Equality March takes place in Washington, D.C. on October 11, 2009, and the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network urges you to attend. There'll be events the day before, too, but the main event is that Sunday at noon. Here's another incentive for you to attend: the Ravens, Giants, Cowboys, Panthers, Vikings, Eagles, Steelers, Bills, Falcons, Cardinals, Patriots, Jaguars, Colts, and Dolphins will all win their games that week. There -- now you don't have to watch the games. And here's yet another incentive: do you want to be outdrawn by the corporate-funded and Fox News-promoted teabagger rallies? Let's show the "liberal" media sixty or seventy thousand people who know why they're at a rally and aren't there because they got whipped up by corporate interests.
