...get on the Peace Train

Now I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Something good's bound to come..
.Peace Train
this is a beautiful song...sorry to send you to youtube...but I think you'll like it...I do xo

Any troop withdrawal is good, but the president’s proposed withdrawal is WAY TOO SMALL.

I URGE YOU TO JOIN THE PROTEST organized by Progressive Democrats of America and Peace Fresno tomorrow, Friday, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. at one of Clovis’ busiest intersections and near local military recruitment offices.  We will stand on the corners of W. Shaw and Willow Ave., in Clovis.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO is be there to support the message.  The organizers will notify the media, bring signs, and be prepared to speak with the media. Numbers matter; your support will make this action a success. 

Show the community that there is support for ending the war in Afghanistan NOW.

Consider this:

In 2008, we had less than 100,000 troops and contractors in Afghanistan; and we were spending $44 billion a year. Now we have over 200,000 troops and contractors in Afghanistan and this year we will be spending $120 billion. Obama has tripled the cost to U. S. tax payers and doubled the number of military personnel in Afghanistan.

We have not done a good job of nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan and we are failing miserably at nation building at home. Withdrawing 33,000 troops, less than 17% of military personnel in Afghanistan means we will continue to spend hundreds of billions of dollars for war and occupation instead of taking care of our needs at home.
