The mother of a soldier has posted a wonderful diary and video at Dkos. She has had ENOUGH!
As you read her words you will hear her desperation. As you watch the video you will feel what she feels. Please join her and share with her your thoughts.
Will you join her and many others across this country telling this corrupt administration that you have had ENOUGH?
This SUNDAY from Noon to 1pm
Please read this mothers diary here:
In her diary she references the diary that started this call for ENOUGH. Here is the link:
A cross post of the diary that started this is here at MyDD:
Is it ENOUGH that we just wring our hands? Is it ENOUGH that we write our blogs? Is it ENOUGH that we speak our minds?
This mothers diary is focused on her son and the ongoing occupation/war in Iraq but she states this near the end: "Yes, I've had enough of the corruption, the incompetence, the lawlessness. But what absolutely sends me over the edge is the ongoing needless death. For what? For WHAT? I've had so much ENOUGH that I'm ready to scream, but I'm not sure anyone will hear me."
Have you had ENOUGH?

Not sure if this has gotten here, so I thought I would pass it along.
From Wes Clark Jr. at DailyKos.com
Enough of seeing the Constitution trashed? Enough of the corruption? Enough of the war? Enough of the gutless response of our elected Democratic representatives?
I don't think our reps read our e-mail or listen to our phone calls. Hell, they didn't even listen to the 2006 election in which we told them to stop the war. Scooter Libby is the last straw and I'm not going to take it anymore. I've had enough.
Cenk Uygur and I were talking this morning about what to do. We've decided it's time to tell America we've had enough. We'll be standing outside the Federal Building in West L.A. at the corner of Veteran and Wilshire for one hour this Sunday (noon to one p.m.). If you'd like to join us, just wear a t-shirt or bring a sign that says you've had enough.
If you're not in L.A., just go to whatever the most common protest site is in your home city with a shirt or sign that says you've had enough from noon to one p.m. this Sunday. You don't have to march, chant, play drums, pass out pamphlets or build puppets (not that we're against those things). All you have to do is stand there with one word: enough.
Cenk and I don't care if we're the only two people there. We don't care because the next Sunday, each of us has pledged to bring two more people with us, and we'll ask them to make the same pledge. And we'll keep standing out there every single Sunday, doubling our numbers, from now until we've got so many people with us that we cannot be ignored.
So how about it? Have you had enough? Will you stand with us?

The most interesting of the antiwar protests commemorating the fourth anniversary of the Iraq war this weekend may be the Christian Peace Witness of Iraq at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.
This Christian worship protest taking place on Friday night, March 16, 2007, has grown rapidly to over 5,000 registered participants. Organizers had not expected that attendance would overflow the National Cathedral, and it now appears to be overflowing a second place of worship, the New York Avenue Presbyterian.
Christian Peace Witness of Iraq is a group formed by more than 25 denominations to conduct an intentionally Christian peace protest centered on worship and prayer and a procession to the White House.
Worship begins at 7 p.m. at the National Cathedral, followed by procession down Massachusetts Ave. to the White House. Participants plan to circle the White House and kneel in prayer holding candles.
Although religious groups have often been considered among President Bush's strongest supporters, this gathering of Christians want to send Mr. Bush the message that they are so concerned about ending the war that they are willing to risk arrest.

Traffic jams are an extreme and unwarranted way to stop a nuclear war.
Cross-posted at http://francislholland.blogspot.com/
To many Americans, it seems apparent that George W. Bush intends to commence open hostilities with Iran in the near future, perhaps as soon as next month, and perhaps including aerial bombardment with "bunker buster" nuclear bombs. http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2007/1
This diary asks the question:
Will Americans spontaneously begin driving at the lowest lawful speeds on US highways, demanding that the Bush Administration must not commence any military action against Iran without Congressional approval, and also demanding that the Democratic Congress must not grant any such approval, even though the effect of such lawfully slow driving would be to bring the nation's highways to a standstill until the threat of war has passed?
