A Somber Speech, But It’s The Truth

After reading Catherine Crier today, I don’t think I have anything to add to the discussion.  In her commencement speech at Western Connecticut State University, she pretty much said it all.  We have allowed too many transgressions already, now we must act to change the course of history.  Read Ms. Crier’s speech, it’s comprehensive and alarming, or at least it should be.

Thanks for pointing the way to this speech.
I said before: take action on July 4th to retrieve your country. All liberals should stand up and show support for our democratic ideals, our Bill of Rights, and our way of life.
Exercise your freedom of speech to talk about the Bill of Rights and why it is important.
Explain to your friends and family (and your opposition) why the colonists declared independence from England. The grievances are listed in the Declaration itself.
We have not yet reached the point where we should dissolve the political bands that unite us. However, we have reached the point where we need to voice our dissent of the governing authority.
Show your support for our country's ideals on July 4th and show your dissatisfaction to those who would take the Rule of Law (and your liberty) away.

yep that's a good speech ... nicely said ... even quotes my whatever removed cousin he is Evan Thomas (Norman Thomas socialist candidate for Prez back in the 20's is a common relative) ... and the man for whom rory's alter ego was named, mr. franklin, so it seemed strangely personal ... like something someone I know well would say over a coupla beers ... not quite that coherently or all at once of course ... well Ms. Crier, may you have a huge audience for this speech ... and may they not come for you ... thanks liberal girl
