I’m a telecommuter again, at least in the way I register my dissent
with the current government policies. I made my virtual march phone
calls about 10 minutes late, and never did get through to the White
House, which makes sense. It would be getting 50 times the volume as
any individual senator. Both of the ladies answering the phones
sounded very harried. Sorry ma’am, but we each have to do what we have
to do.

I’m going to participate in the MoveOn.org Virtual March on
Washington
tomorrow. My times are from 3:31 PM with Zell Miller’s
office to the White House at 3:40 PM. I’m not a peacenik. I understand
there are times to go to war. This is not the time, nor the
reason. Not only on a moral level but on an economic one, this is a
Bad Idea. The world is more interconnected than it was 12 years ago. I
would so much rather see our focus right now away from invading other
countries and forcing other countries to accede to our wishes and
instead see it turn to Selling American Shit to the World. To do that,
you need a reasonably stable world that wants uniquely American goods
and services. Becoming the aggressors in preemptive invasions of
countries that are on our shite list does not further that goal. Below
is approximately what I will say in my phone calls.

“I love this country so very much that I do not want us become the
aggressors in an avoidable war. Let us be an example of peace and
stability, of strength without aggression, of vision, of
character. Let us do that by choosing peace and diplomacy above war.”
