Ann Arbor A28 Protest

Here's what it looked very early. I was a bit to busy to get many photos.
We had almost 4 days of rain, but then when Saturday rolled around the rain stopped & the sun came out, almost like "someone" knew how important Saturday was to us & the U.S. We had a nice turn out (I always want to see more). I want to thank all the folks that came from out of town to support this call for impeachment. Also a big thanx to all the "townies" A lot of people would be walking by but would stop & pick up a sign. Lot's of honking & thumb's up too.
A few of us marched to the Diag & back(trying to get in as many graduation pictures as we could)

Here some more pictures as things started to get hopping

Saturday Morning Signs

I put most of these up Friday night & Saturday morning. I put these up along I94 in hopes that Bill Clinton's motorcade might see them. Bill was in town for the U of M spring commencement speech.

Fantastic Voyage

"Fantastic Voyage"

In the event
that this fantastic voyage
Should turn to erosion
and we never get old
Remember it's true, dignity is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

We're learning to live with somebody's depression
And I don't want to live with somebody's depression
We'll get by, I suppose
It's a very modern world,
but nobody's perfect

It's a moving world,
but that's no reason
To shoot some of those missiles
Think of us as fatherless scum
It won't be forgotten
'Cause we'll never say anything nice again, will we?

And the wrong words make you listen
In this criminal world
Remember it's true, loyalty is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

We're learning to live with somebody's depression
And I don't want to live with somebody's depression
We'll get by I suppose
But any sudden movement I've got to write it down
They wipe out an entire race and I've got to write it down
But I'm still getting educated but I've got to write it down
And it won't be forgotten
'Cause I'll never say anything nice again, how can I?

Roger Hodgson: Had A Dream (Sleeping With The Enemy)

Had a dream it was war
And they couldn't tell me what it was for
But it was something they could lie about
Something we could die about, you know
Anytime, anyplace
When you look that man in the face
Well it is not a face you wanna see
Sleeping with the enemy, you know

Impeach Cheney 1st

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has just introduced Articles of Impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.

Article I
The Vice President of the United States, Richard B. Cheney, has purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States by fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to justify the use of the U.S. Armed Forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security interests.

Article II
The Vice President of the United States, Richard B. Cheney, has purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States about an alleged relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda in order to justify the use of the U.S. Armed Forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security interests.

Article III
In his conduct while Vice President of the United States, Richard B. Cheney, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of Vice President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has openly threatened aggression against the Republic of Iran absent any real threat to the the United States, and done so with the United States' proven capability to carry out such threats, thus undermining the national security of the United States.

Let's take to the streets on Saturday & show the 31% & the world that "We The People" want King George II & His Dick out of the Whitehouse!

Getting Ready For April 28th

The cardboard has been falling into my lap. I found 3 big sliding glass door boxes in the trash across the street from where I was working, then as a lark I stopped by where I use to find a lot of boxes & there was a guy cutting up refrigerator boxes. I stopped & asked if he would 1st stop cutting them in half !!! & could I have them ( with a box cutter already in my hand & a weird smile on my face) & he said "hell I'll help ya, what are you using it for? " I had to think fast... "I going to build a spray booth to paint some door" So we loaded up my truck with as much cardboard as would fit & I took off to paint "some doors"
This is 17ft long & about 3ft wide, made from trash I found in a window treatment store's dumpster!

I Turn Trash Into FREESPEECH!

Bye Bye Bloomfield Hills

Today was my last out at Bloomfield Hills. No more hour drive to work & no more hour drive home!

I think I made my presence known. I put up a butt load of signs in my 12 days of working out there. These are my last 2 on I14, I96, & Telegraph Rd. for now

You Are Still A Coward, Mr Bush

By Dan Guthrie
Mr President, five years ago I wrote that you "skedaddled" on 9/11. The word was coined during the Civil War to describe those who ran away from battle, which is what you did when you flew to faraway hidey-holes after the Twin Towers attack.

I'm sure you didn't see my column, given your notorious reluctance to venture beyond Washington and Texas. Others did read it, though, and many of them were furious.
They accused me of treason because I pointed out your cowardice.

I wonder how those critics feel about you now.

At the time, the details of how you dodged service in Vietnam and then went AWOL from the Air National Guard weren't widely reported by a media that coddled you.
Since 9/11, we've had many opportunities to reflect on your history and observe you in action.

You refused to meet with the public except at tightly scripted affairs where the people and their questions were screened.

You avoided New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina much as you did New York on 9/11.

You set presidential records for long vacations at your Texas ranch.

Rather than speak with Cindy Sheehan and other mothers of dead soldiers, you again took refuge in seclusion.

You usurped Constitutional rights by wiretapping citizens without a court order.

Brazenly, you put yourself above the law. As you said in 2002: "I'm commander. See, I don't need to explain. I do not need to explain why I say things."

This hubris continued to flaunt itself. In a 2004 presidential debate, when asked to name one mistake you'd made during your first term in office, you couldn't come up with anything.

Then, after the election, you said: "Let me put it to you this way. I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it. It is my style." You spent most of it by trying and failing to privatise Social Security.

Last week, you admitted that the United States has been using secret overseas prisons to interrogate suspected terrorists in 'alternate' ways, thus becoming our first Torture President.

Those detainees are being transferred to Guantanamo for military trials even though the Supreme Court has ruled twice that you are depriving people there of their civil rights.

You have been consumed with sending others to fight wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The former did not achieve its objective - to capture Osama bin Laden - and the latter, your pet war, is beginning to look like our nation's worst blunder.

You have sent the bill for this debacle to our children and grandchildren while running up the biggest national debt in US history.

Meanwhile, you are ignoring environmental threats far greater than those presented by terrorists.

Global warming, dead zones in the oceans, overpopulation - even such mundane events as deaths caused annually by automobiles and tobacco and hospital mistakes - dwarf the body counts for 9/11.

For most Americans, obesity, not Osama, is the real danger - it's projected that one-third of us will eventually suffer from type-2 diabetes. (We could win a war against obesity.)
You are soft-pedaling our increasing reliance on a dwindling resource: oil.

Where's the courage in all of this? Where's the grace under pressure? Where's the strong man struggling for the many?

Maybe I shouldn't be subjecting you and your strut to scrutiny. Maybe the puppeteers Karl Rove and Dick Cheney are behind our national mess. In that case you're just doing what you perfected at Yale where you led the yells but never played the game.

But I don't think so. I think you have a personal goal. While diverting us with weekly sound bites about the war on terror, you keep transferring wealth from the middle class to the rich. You are ushering in a new Gilded Age marked by political corruption and obscene profits for your cronies.

In retrospect, five years ago I underestimated the damage a coward with power can do.

Friday The 13th

I had to switch signs... The last sign I put here just wasn't working you couldn't read it until you were just about pass it. So I replaced it with Will Kill For Oil

That's it! This is the last of my batch. Time to hang some BIG ASS banners & start painting my next batch.

I found a home for this sign it says "You Have The Right To Remain Silent... But I Wouldn't Recommend it"

Night Time Rescue

We had to go out tonight on a rescue mission to save the Surveillance Underminds Liberty sign, but it turned into a recovery mission as the sign was beyond rescue. It was ripped in half by all the snow, rain, & wind we had to day. So we replaced it with a brand new sign.

Rain & snow won't hurt this sign, it's plastic.

While we were out we put up these 2 wood signs on some old dead trees that are very close to the highway...
