Idea from Steve Gilliard:

so sad... the number one request at walter reed hospital is phone cards. Because the priority of our government is to continue tax cuts for the likes of paris hilton, the government doesn't pay ld phone charges and these guys, many of them amputees, are rationing their calls home. Many will be there throughout the holidays. Remember that most are from poor families. It is disgusting that they cannot keep in touch with family after what they have been asked to sacrifice for bushco; especially this time of year. Support the troops -- cuz bushco doesn't. Send phone cards of any amount to:

medical family assistance center
walter reed medical center
6900 georgia avenue, nw
washington, dc 20307-5001

they say they need an "endless" supply of these -- any amount even $5 is greatly appreciated.


Words to Remember From Jefferson: 

In 1798, after the passage of the alien and sedition acts under President John Adams, Thomas Jefferson had these still relevant words of solace for a friend:

A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt.... If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake.


It's On, Motherfuckers. 

David Rees (of Get Your War On fame) has this to say to those of us who are despondent due to Dubya's recent electoral win.

It's on, motherfuckers. It's on.


Dear World: 

We are so, so, so sorry. We tried to stop this. We weep with you.
