Grier Martin and the Raging Grannies

We didn't have Women on Wednesdays today but I'm squeezing this in under the wire. Apologies for the late post and shaky video [note to self: put tripod in car] but not many people get to see either Grier Martin speak or the Raging Grannies sing. Here they are in all their glory at last Saturday's Global Warming rally at the old State Capitol in Raleigh.

How Refreshing

"Call us, write us, email us...don't stop 'til you make this change happen."

Interactive and responsive representation. Be still my beating heart!

I had a great

conversation with Grier the other day. I cant tell you how much he believes in the power of the internet, of citizen participation, of just plain old people.

There are some amazing people working for us in this state.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I gave this a 5.

The reason being that it is the first time I, and many of us, have heard Mr. Martin speak. In addition to his sterling record, the man comes from a line of good speakers. He needs pushed up into the House.

I remember when the

rest of the world looked to the United States for leadership...I look forward to leadership by you Mr. Martin along with Brad Miller and Pricey Harrison to take us into the future with real representation! Great job Greg!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Apologies for the random Styx lyrics Momo

but your post reminded me of the Styx song Suite Madam Blue

I remember when the rest of the world looked to the United States for leadership

Time after time I sit and I wait for your call
I know Im a fool what can I say
Whatever the price Ill pay for you, madame blue
Once long ago, one word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow youve changed, youre so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you, madame blue

Suite madame blue, gaze in your looking glass
Youre not a child anymore
Suite madame blue, the future is all but past
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more ..............heavens door

America....america...america..america..
America....america...america..america..
America....america...america..america..

Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass
Youre not a child anymore
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here

Oh I like that song

but never really paid attention to the words. Hope someone great comes along to lead us away from here...

Women on Wednesday has deferred to our Veterans

this week and will return full blast next Wednesday.

We can always replay the raging grannies in the open thread.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.
