    I feel like a guerilla when I talk about WalMart!

      with you on this diary, good. I love the whole idea of the tour and I hope readers will seriously consider renting the movie. It's so bad what they do as a matter of policy and we just hand over the money, day in and day out.

      I love the interviews too. It's not Frontline, but people have a lot more wisdom than we give each other credit for.

      Get geurrilla, since you're already a blogger half the work is done. The blogs are the delivery system. Don the camis and get cracking kossacks.

        I struggle with how so many people are so well off and yet so underinformed in this country.  How do those people sleep at night?  Why are they so disinterested?  There are citizens out there who are going without healthcare and the basics of life so many of us take for granted.  

        This, in a nutshell, explains why I am a proud supporter of John Edwards, right here in black, white, and guerillas!

      and the subject matter so important.  Wal-Mart's policies are closely adhered to by all the other major retail employers and why not? it works for Wal-Mart and it works for them too.  Target, Walgreens and others are enjoying record profits at the expense of their employees.  Thank you, John Edwards for enjoining them in battle.

      Mbair I think we should have an annual award for what you are doing - call it a "Bloggie"  maybe?

        I can see her taking the stage now!  With a stuffed guerilla in her arms!

        I just hope that more people are motivated to do something, anything. I was so apathetic and cynical I couldn't get excited about anything. I could get mad real easy, but not excited in a positive way. I figured out how to get the juices flowing again.

        I'm going to Iowa tomorrow to do another one of these and next Monday I'm covering a Deval Patrick event closer to home. I won't need an airline ticket for that one.

        I just hope I can keep it up. I'm sure I'll figure out how to do it, it's totally addicting once you do one or two.

        How about the "bloggie" statuette is a banana mounted on a keyboard.

          I can go you one better about apathetic.  After my protesting days in the late 60s, early 70s, I "settled down".  I even voted for Bush in 2000!  What an idiot!

          I "discovered" John Edwards a little over three years ago and made my first campaign donation ever.  I have supported him ever since and always will.  He's the reason I am now a registered Dem and a member of the Dem party.  Where he goes, I go too, as well as my husband.

          In 2004, I travelled to Fla. and Iowa on his behalf, and have travelled to see him here in NC, in fact, NCDem and I covered the Habitat for Humanity event in Chapel Hill.

          Yep, my juices are flowing again, too, and it feels so right!
