Pre-election solidarity - Black Armbands
We ought to start showing our united outrage on the passage of the Pro-Torture Bill. A symbol of our terminal disgust with our media, the Republican Crime Syndicate, and even those 15-20% of the Democratic Party which suffer from Liebermanitis. Going about our everyday lives, not ranting and raving, but a real quiet show of solidarity on this anti-American, pro-crime law that the Syndicate. Should we be asked, we patiently explain...if contronted, kill the enemy with superior firepower - the facts.

A quiet symbol, worn by, say, 50MM Americans.....now that would be impressive. We need to raise awareness of the issues and get a macro-sense of ourselves....the blogosphere could amp this, maybe DU could print them and sell at discount.....put the DU link on 'em. Everybody buy a dozen or so and pass them out.

~ We caved in to terror.~

Around 11/1, we flip them over, reverse colors:


"I'm voting to stop Organized Crime: Vote Democrat."

Whaddaya think? I'm ready to order....

With the death of habeus corpus today, this symbol is more appropriate than ever.

6. Oh, no.
Your post was pretty much concurrent wtih the others I saw. And the titles are what gave me the ideas, and only after reading your idea. See? You're an inspiration!

5. I'm in.
I wore a black arm band when BushI passed the 'gag rule.' It didn't have any message on it but people knew it was a political protest and asked me about it.
