Political opinion from a peace-nik, left-wing independent Democrat
Saturday, March 18, 2006
Peace rally this afternoon in Davenport, IA
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" "Bush still lying/People still dying" "Peace Now" "Honor the dead/Demand the truth" "Don't drink the (Fox News, New York Times, CNN, MSNBC) Kool-Aid" Dorothy Monahan of Moline, although she finds walking somewhat difficult, still gets out and about.
Chris Dunn of Rock Island (not pictured) came with his guitar and sang to keep spirits up.
Among the passing motorist that expressed an opinion the vast majority appeared to support the sentiments expressed on our signs. This was in stark contrast to the rally I attended 3 years ago when war fever was at its peak.
I am a part-time blogger and an occasional Democratic Party volunteer living in Moline, Illinois (part of the Quad Cities). My day job is as a computer programmer with a Davenport, Iowa company that provides software to automobile dealerships.
