Organization hands out fliers, graffitis to get message out - There are only 16 days until the beginning of the end of the Bush regime, according to the World Can't Wait, a new political organization. The Austin chapter plans to be on campus and around town handing out fliers and actively advertising their cause.
"This administration does not represent us ... even though they say they do," said Sonya Morales, head of the Austin chapter.
Today marks the fifth day of encampment outside the White House counting down to Nov. 2, the day WCW has organized protest marches in 40 cities and college campuses across the nation. Nov. 2 is also the one-year anniversary of President Bush's re-election to office.
"We're not just going to be the same old people sitting at tables on the West Mall," Josh Waldman, an Austin WCW member, said. "We're going to be making noise and getting attention."
Advocates of the organization have spray-painted information regarding the WCW Web site and its motto, "Resist or Die," on buildings and sidewalks on or near the UT campus.
Because the offenses occurred at an institution of higher education the graffiti "is considered a state jail felony," said Sgt. Leigh Glass, a spokeswoman at UTPD. The department will be investigating the owners of the Web site to find out who committed the crime. Morales said the organization does not advocate the graffiti but that it is an indication the organization is inspiring people.
According to WCW, the march is only one event in a string of others meant to change the current political climate to one similar to that during the Vietnam War.
"We want to bring things back to that type of movement," Waldman said.
While WCW's goal is to drive Bush's administration out of office, they admit that may not immediately happen.
"The office is built specifically so the president could ignore public opinion," said David Prindle, a UT government professor.
Public opinion polls as of Thursday showed 38 percent of the country believes Bush is doing a good job.
"Bush is not setting any records in unpopularity, but it is very difficult to remove a president from office," Prindle said.
"A Republican congress is not going to impeach Bush unless he's caught committing felonies in the White House," Prindle said. "Nothing in his character suggests he would resign ... and barring a stroke or cerebral hemorrhage, I don't see Cheney removing him from office."
Strike back by cheering for Texas Tech this Saturday! :) GUNS UP!!!
Amazing what 3 people can do after an hour of passing around a bong.
Isn't that World Championship Wrestling?
Would I be a bad person to wish for the latter?
Austin and Houston are the "blue counties" on the Hannity Bush Country '04 map...any wonder the first thing that happens is that laws are broken? TT throws for 600+ yards against a top 5 defense against the pass....
Does bong mean STD?
These people seem particularly stupid - have they stopped to think about who becomes President if anything (God forbid) should happen to President Bush?
And that even if Cheny didn't want a second term then he would be in a positition to appoint a new VP and he he could help that person get another 4-8 years?
But that said, it's not going to be helpful to prosecute political graffiti on campuses as jail felonies... it will make up look like China.
The inability to distinguish between what is real and what is imaginary. Psychosis is a term used to describe a severe mental illness. Psychotics are characterized by a variety of symptoms that most people consider abnormal. These include experiencing delusions, such as the notion that one is being persecuted or conspired against. Psychotics may see things which don't actually exist and hear Voices (i.e. God) when no one is around. They often exhibit compulsive, irrational, ritualized behavior, esp. when such behavior serves no purpose or is even harmful or disruptive to those around them. They show no concern for others but may exhibit total self-centered behavior. Includes sociopathy, schizophrenia.
and thats MISTER Dickhead to you, sailor!
Yes, but only because wishful thinking is never enough!
Nov 2nd, the day when everything we'll change forever....we're only $10 away from impeaching the chimp....DUAC! DUAC!
Yeah, good luck with that...
How'd you know that's what I was thinking ..?? ROTFLOL!!
"These people seem particularly stupid - have they stopped to think about who becomes President if anything (God forbid) should happen to President Bush?"
This is the really funny part: If (God forbid) anything would happen to Pres. Bush, we'd have Pres. Cheney, and if this bunch of wackos think he'd be a wimp on the GWOT, they've got another think coming.
That is one reaons the Bush Library will not go to Austin, too many freakoids.
Guns Up!!! TT beat UT!
Like the Clinton Klan represented Conservatives when they were in office? Get over it. You ran 2 wooden facsimili's for the Presidency instead of human beings. You take extremist stances and claim they are what the "people" want, and then whine when the "people" kick you out of office.
As a past USN "Sea Bee", I got a great big chuckle out of that one. I have a feeling our Marine Corps brothers will be a bit ticked off though. ;)
...So you ARE going to be those same old people sitting in the West Mall.
"No one is listening to us! We need to be LOUDER, 'cuz the message ain't the problem!!
