What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

In August, the grass dies

Just so I'm clear about these things, this August is going to be an exceedingly troublesome one with the various political campaigning on Healthcare Reform. There is a HUGE call out of the troops on both sides, with both side claiming "grass-roots." Well, neither side has it in this debate. Grassroots are not top down organizations, they're bottom up. And on both sides special interest groups and political action groups/committees are driving the debate, organizing the protests, and providing support.

Their actions drown out those of us who are "grass-roots" and compromise our actions. Doesn't mean I'll stop.
