I don't know what protesting the war can do at this point, but just
protesting the inauguration of Bush would be satisfying, and any argument to stop
buying stuff gets my vote.

The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq is
immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and that it

"Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The politicians
put the troops in harm's way. Now 1,200 brave young Americans and (some

There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing
agenda to rant about.
