Speaking for me

Hermana can speak for me anytime:

"I don't want to speak for your mother, but I think she'd agree with me on this point. We're not going to lay down and roll over for criminals who think our Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper"! George Bush said that. The man who vowed to "protect, preserve and defend " the Constitution said that! George Bush wants us to be scared of him; scared that we might end up on an enemies list if we say or do or think the wrong things. Scared to buy the 'wrong' books or belong to the 'wrong' organizations. He wants us to spy on our neighbors and report 'suspicious' activity. He wants to hold secret trials for people who violate secret laws. Well, he can kiss my blatantly Socialist, Feminist, Atheist ass. There comes a time when you have to stand up. Here I stand."

Here's a photo Hermana took while we were in Cornwall. I just found these photos and as I look at them I think about why we went and how we felt and the suprising things we came upon. It was great. When we get together we always gravitiate to earth and ocean. We always go to the edge. Maybe now we jump in.

I'm not a soapbox sort of person so this blog is a more or less comfortable place for me to put my toes in the water--it may never get to be any more than this. But for now, here I stand as well.
