Two Quotes for the Day and Friday the 13th!

11 May

Be afraid,

“It is as useless to argue with those
who have renounced the use and authority of reason
as to administer medication to the dead.”

— Thomas Jefferson

M and I are pretty busy preparing for the Friday the 13th Zombie Monster Mash Event in Olympia. Hope you can join us at Sylvester Park or at other locations where we will living it up, undead style on Friday. To follow the planning come to the site. The question is whether the legislators have renounced the use and authority of reason. The Undead Want to Know.

I. F. Stone– “The only kinds of fights worth fighting are those you are going to lose, because somebody has to fight them and lose and lose and lose until someday, somebody who believes as you do wins. In order for somebody to win an important major fight 100 years hence, a lot of other people have got to be willing—for the sheer fun and joy of it—to go right ahead and fight, knowing you’re going to lose. You mustn’t feel like a martyr. You’ve got to enjoy it.”

There are folks who think it is not a great idea to mix zombies in this serious legislative lobbying battle. I get that. The struggle over the budget is dead serious. But we have to spread the word and mobilize young folks. So here we go, Facebook, Zombies, Twitter etc. This is serious to students, college, high school, middle school and below because the push is on to gut the education budget, to dump teacher unions, to privatize education with profit as the first priority. Plus, as Izzy notes above, we mustn’t feel like martyrs even if we lose, we have to keep rising like the undead. We will not go away.

Hope to have some zombie lobbying footage up on Saturday, May 14th or maybe Sunday. The video editing takes a long time. See you there?
