June 5. March on the Pentagon

Lately I’ve been feeling uneasy about what the next few months will bring here in the States and abroad. Iraq is about to explode. The economy is wobbling. The presidential campaign will no doubt be unusually vicious. The country is splitting down the middle. “The center will not hold.”

I’ve mentioned this a number of people (across the political spectrum) and not one person has disagreed, instead they just nodded their heads in agreement.

But then, great danger can also be great opportunity. This is the time to organize, to get in the streets, to make some noise. Else the blowback from the ill-advised wars of the neo-cons and the subsequent bankrupting of the country to pay for them, will sink us all.

These are not normal times. Let’s stop this war.
