They said that we should be silent They said that it was their turn They said that only they could fix the mess we made We watched the world burn They started to dismantle They were viciously relentless They culled our liberties. Our institutions under siege, We became feckless They closed their eyes as the […]
We need to stand together to prevent Americans from suffering as a result of the new administration, but nobody is calling the plays.
Joss Whedon is a fantastic director and created the lovable Firefly TV series, among others. It seems he’s come out in support of Willard. It’s definitely worth the 2 minutes. Thanks to both Fro and Naomi for sharing this on the book of faces.
I caught this on Digg and didn’t believe the headline until I watched it. I never thought I’d say it, but given the choice I think I’d vote for Bill O’Reilly over Sarah Palin. To think how close she actually got to the executive branch makes me cringe.
