I Just Got My Red Star Badge of Courage

Have you got yours? Mine is a Mom's Day Gift. It's a silver link bracelet with a red star on one link. Everyone in opposition to the Bush administration's policies needs to sport a red star--a bumper sticker, a T-shirt, a lapel pin…whatever. We really have to stand up and be visible. People need to know who we are. Ever since the Communist red star symbol started to appear on the doors of college professors who vocally opposed White House fascism, it's become increasingly obvious that the bullying, jackbooted, warmongers who favor the Bush model of totalitarian government think they can impose their beliefs on the rest of us by using intimidation, dirty tricks and force if necessary. Now that churches are kicking out members who are Democrats; now that it's been revealed that Pope Ratz (last March when he was head of doctrinal enforcement) ordered Catholic magazine America editor Rev. Thomas J. Reese to resign because he wrote articles critical of the RCC; now that Kansas is fighting for the right to teach that the world was created 6,000 years ago in six days, the sane majority of people in the US need to show a visible sign that we openly oppose a church-run, autocratic, anti-gay, anti-women, pro-war government. Show your red star badge of courage. And shout, rant and rave because it works. You may have noticed that Microsoft's Bill Gates has now decided he is pro-gay again. His recent foray into being anti-gay was starting to negatively affect Microsoft's economics
