I noticed today that when I'm forced to speak to the elected I am NOT Smiling - maybe this will change in the future because I do not like frowns in anger but I'm not one of those people who can fake being happy when I'm in the presence of the elected because I'm most likely at that meeting because the elected is doing something I'm NOT HAPPY ABOUT - I hope they get their act together real soon
Last week it was both the State Level & Federal Representatives
Today it was off to another town's Town Hall to sit in among an overflow crowd as War Mongers, Immigrants & Citizens & Patriots all gathered to hear what answers Congressman John Larson had to say about the pending vote on going to war
I wish my digital camera hadn't broken the battery compartment hinge so I could have taken pictures of the people outside that had set up posters & dolls wrapped up in shrouds as they tried to sway the public & our congressman to vote yes to go to war with Assad who hasn't done anything to Americans. Several came inside to speak & asked; more like demanded, for us to go to war to remove their dictator
Citizen Reporter Palin Smith was there with both camera & video camera to record the events both last week & this - due to the publicity that the special interest group calling the news as well as the topic for the meeting all of the local tv news stations were present although at least 1/2 of them left so they could get the footage on air for the evening news
Wonderful thing about Citizen Reporters is that unlike the major media that will not normally show the entire event, Citizen Reporters have their videos up online for all to see 24/7 on sites like Vimeo & Youtube - some are big channels but most are small channels uploading life as it happens for those who who want to see.
