The Shot Heard 'Round the World

The Fight At It's Beginnning

I consider Representative Jones's bold move as the first shot in resisting the oncoming onslaught of neocon destruction. Every person who stood up and protested the certification of the falsified votes of Ohio deserves praise. Each and every one of them was able to quote chapter and verse on what went wrong, how it went wrong and what must be done about it. They did not go quietly into the night, but protested loudly and sharply. They spoke of crowds waiting and shortchanged beaten down and cheated. The Republicans could only reply with platitudes and homilies, and not one piece of evidence for their defense. I have some news for so-called "Patriots", my patriotism is manifested by my ability to protest as well as my right to praise. For the contumely hypocrisy of Tom DeLay, (of whom I have more to say later), a man thrice rebuked by the House for his lack of ethics, a man tied to a questionable, disturbing cabal and dirty political tricks of machine politics, I have nothing but contempt. Just as I have no sympathy for those who say one thing and do another, and abuse your trust while they are at it. Namely Senators Clinton and Schumer, who turned tail and voted "Nay" on sustaining the objection. Every person, be they old or young who stood there, in the cold only to cheated later, was doubly shafted today. Therefore, be on notice that we know how you voted, and will remember it next year when you are up for an accounting. From this time on the fight begins, and it won't end until we take back this country from modern day feudalists who would bring us to serfdom!
