I was not at Woodstock but I was in DC, before, that day and for many other rallies. I'm proud of being an ole hippies still fighting for the dream. "Equal rights, Freedom and Justice, for every human being." That is my dream and the dream of so many of us, I will proudly fight on till there is no breath in my body.

I was in Woodstock with 2 of my friends and we all came from Yellow Springs, Ohio.

We had our tickets but by the time we got there, the fence was down.

We enjoyed all of the music and all of the "other" things in Woodstock.

Yep, I'm still a hippy, a biker hippy if you can "see" it, but older these days. lol...

Political rallies were fun too but downright a bit dangerous back in the days. Washington, DC., Madison,
Chicago and all others...

Where are the younger generation these days...???

Maybe they are out there too... I don't know as the news has been omitting, suppressing those rallies
aside from OWS (Occupy Wall Street).

Ty, Tom.

Whoops, forgot this:

From MoveOn: Ronald Reagan: ‘Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit.’

He was so right. Too bad that the g o p pukes cannot understand the fact.

I wanted to be at Woodstock, regret that I wasn't. Why won't the Republicans heed their Saint Reagan's advice?

Puzzle — 3:42 A nice cup of Earl Grey Tea is perfect, especially when you have a cold. Warms you through and relaxes. Just had some today to counter the cold I have! I recognise the painting but can't remember the artist. Believe it was French Impressionist.

MoveOn — The GOP make Reagan a saint, quote him as the be all and end all, and then ignore him when he is no longer convenient. Another of those GOP inconvenient truths!

NY Times — King, a “bridge between the parties.” As nice as it would be to have a bridge to span the gap, based on the actions and rhetoric of the current GOP, I don't think anyone can span that gulf!

Tucson Citizen — As far as I am concerned, the Tea Party are not patriots, but rather a gaggle geese acting like a bunch of spoiled brats that need to have their butts whuped! Lincoln, I'm sure, would be ashamed to be in the same party as them.

Cartoon — It is amazing just how much can be accomplished when so many come together. I was thinking this was the Million Man March but that was 16/10/1995. Was this one of the protests against the war in Vietnam?

I saw this when I was reading the Arizona story and thought everyone would appreciate it if they hadn't seen it.
Mo Udall, Democratic Senator from Arizona, says, "I have learned the difference between a cactus and a caucus. On a cactus, the pricks are on the outside."

My memories are mostly San Francisco, usually in tandem with DC...

Thanks everyone. This was my last big demonstration, and I was at Woodstock.

Thanks again, TomCat. I was on the West coast during Woodstock; my husband was in Viet Nam. We hadn't met yet (finally met him in 1992). Hope you have a good weekend.

Tom stated: "Patriots" (sic) are petitioning the White House to secede from the United Sates, an act of sedition and insurrection, because their candidate did not win the presidency. "

Most of us stopped threatening to run away from home when we were six or seven years old. Once the tantrum was thrown and the threats were made and no attempt was made to stop us, we walked down the street not knowing where to go or what to do when we got there. That's when we realized how much we depended on our parents. It's time to grow up and accept the fact that you can't always get what you want and console yourself with the fact that the world isn't over and there will be another election in four years. It could have been worse. Mitt could have won! The Republicans are knocking each other over in their attempt to distance themselves from him just days after the election...
