Our poor bloodied Saint Al Gore is going to be riding right into the Senate this month on his white horse, after being worked over and roughed up by the Fossil Fool attack-machine over spending too lavishly to help grow more green energy.
The Goricle is hoping to sell the Senate on passing the significant climate change legislation that it is time to pass: not Lieberman's suckup to the nuke lobby legislation. And we can all go in there with him, because...
...amid the boos and snickers of the vast rightwing Fossil Fool conspiracy in the Senate, The Goricle walks in and starts handing out cards to Senators....and whats this?
Why its all of US. And we're right there in the Senate Hearing Room in the belly of the beast.
Senators, we are not Astroturf, like the other side. We are the real thing.
We listen to the hearings. We know where you all stand. We'll be watching how you vote on this, Senators.
The scientists say we need to match this above.
The "the diddly squat" Bush approach on the left will kill us all.
Your daughter. Your neighbour. The guy at 7-11. Your church group. Your buddy from work. Your kids preschool class. Your fellow dog walkers. Your parents. Your kids best friend. Your Yoga group. Your Writers group. That lady who owns the health food store.
Ask them what should the Senate do? Really, the choice is ours. Do we want to survive as a race, or not.
Every kind of person is going to be affected by global warming. And just hand them a sign. You can pre-print a bunch, or take a wipe-erace board for people who want to write their own.
Heres my first person with a view on the Bush administrations handling of global warming
- My favorite daughter who read Collapse with me and after seeing The Inconvenient Truth began planting hundreds of seeds she collected on streets and up at Tilden Park.
- will be my Republican neighbour Jane who remembers how Americans worked together to solve problems before - nothing like as bad as global warming who told me Republicans used to be smarter.
"You think Republicans don't have grandchildren? Pass The Gold Standard"
- John, who sold me my Honda but wished American cars were as easy to sell
"Stop babying Detroit. Raise CAFE standards to compete with Foreign cars"
Send a copy of our photos to Office of the Honorable Al Gore 2100 West End Avenue Suite 620, Nashville, TN 37203, or post them at dailykos next week.
Let's meet back here in a week with our 10 photos each - or more for the gregarious among us! - Then lets all put them all in one diary here, maybe can Buddydharma rouse the rabble here with the diary? and give the diary to The Goricle to take with him. Imagine Al Gores powerpoint show in the Senate, except this time its us. Its time for the change.
After Al goes to the Senate, on April 14th follow up with the Step it Up! action. Join an action in your neighbourhood.
If you're in my neighbourhood in the East Bay come join me here at Point Isabel on April 14th, lets fill in this space with a line of us Bay Area Kossacks stretching to the horizon there - and bring your own signs, this is just so you see how it will look sort of. Thats the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, this is looking West to the Pacific. This is a morning photo but the light at late afternoon is great.
if you've been following the Senate hearings: use the Fossil Fools own obnoxious quotes like this "cause du jour" to help let them know that we are paying attention.
Strike fear into their tiny hearts.
If Republicans were surprised to find we all want the troops home, wait till they find out how we feel about getting wiped off the face of this planet we call home.
