The great journalist, Helen Thomas, was one of the panelists on last week's Real Time with Bill Maher. One of the things she said has been sticking with me.
They were discussing all the scandal & corruption coming out of Washington, and she said she didn't understand the passiveness of the American people (not to do anything.)
While I totally understand where she's coming from, I wonder what she expects us to do.
We can take to the streets with peaceful protesting, write letters, sign petitions, buy blue, blog, etc, but that isn't enough. If we tried to "storm the castle" and drag the bums out by force, we'd be met with a sniper's bullet. So what are we to do, Helen?
