This is a repost of a comment from here.
I originally addressed it Kat, because she had just given an update, but it's for you:
Thanks for the update.
I was in tears during the interview with Lynn. I thought that Brad was having a hard time holding his emotions together at the end of the show, and that was only to his credit, and very appropriate (not exactly the right word, sorry, ..sympatico?) given that it was a very moving, honest interview.

I totally agree. I was crying and the mother was crying --- it was heartbreaking to hear her story. When Brad got choked up, it showed the depth of his compassion. Brad, you're so honest and good-hearted.
Compare that with rush limpbrow and mr. fahloofa-man O'really, hannity-insanity ... you get the picture.
Thank you Brad for being a REAL man!

Thought you might find this useful to share:
The following dedication, created by the growing group of people over at USPatriotsUnited and PatriotsAll, is open-copyright to the citizens of the United States of America.
Please share it far and wide, to support our troops as well as show your support for the efforts of Cindy Sheehan as she exercises her right to dissent and demand accountability from our leaders.
Dedication to the US Armed Forces
from the People of the United States*
Two hundred and twenty-nine years ago our Founding Fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all people are created equal. Now we are engaged in foreign battles, initiated upon false premises, testing whether this nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
The brave souls, living and dead, who have struggled in this time of war remind us of the costs of such folly far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will note and long remember what has been done and the damage we have wrought, and neither it nor we will ever forget.
It is for us, the living, to be re-dedicated to the unfinished work which those who have fought and died believed they nobly pursued.
It is for us, the survivors, to be dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation shall enjoy the re-birth of freedom, and that this government of the People, by the People, for the People shall not perish from this earth.
*Based upon the Gettysburg Address

Gee Brad, all this stuff is going on in Crawford???
I didn't know it! Because I've been watching the news on television lately!
Still not enough Cindy Sheehan/Crawford on TV news.
I have an idea!!! Let's tell CNN that Cindy Sheehan is missing in Aruba!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, compare the amount of CNN coverage of the missing Aruba teen/Lacey Peterson/Michael Jackson, to the amount of coverage they are dedicating to Cindy Sheehan/Crawford. Then realize that the Aruba/Peterson/Jackson stories don't affect Americans, and the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford story affects ALL AMERICANS!!!
Here's your real-time proof there's something funny going on at CNN.

Trudy, I too am very upset by BreakforNews' antics. Certainly, it is wise to remember that any and all alternative media sources can be plants. How deep is the rabbit hole? But that could be said as well about BFN, especially since it seems to be playing the divide and conquer game more determinedly than anyone.

Re:BreakforNews --- What criteria did fintan dunne use to peg his list of CIA operatives, which includes our very own Brad 006-or-7?
Is it just the fact that Brad posted an article about 9/11 or the fact that lots of us here feel compelled to discuss all the possibilities surrounding 9/11?
Take a look at the whole to discover the truth. Who is Fintan Dunne?

What a double treat...to discover your radio show / website, and get to hear an interview with Joan Baez from Crawford. The mainstream media is looking worse and worse each day. Thank you for covering Joan's visit. I have been a fan of her "voice and vision" for the past 30 years. Joan has fought with her arsenal of song (and words), for civil rights, and aginst war, for more than 4 decades. I thank Cindy Sheehan for waking us all up from the sleep we went into after the election loss. I thank Cindy for reminding us that the emperor has no clothes. And I thank you for sharing Cindy and Joan's words as well as those of the other brave people there in Texas.

I hear Joan Baez has body odor. I have a friend who did her sound and she won't use deodorant. I respect being a natural girl.

#17 Nana - thanks - the folks who put it out are going to start spreading it around, and I'm one of the lucky folks who got advanced approval. Please feel free to copy/paste and distribute it. They've given it an open copyright.
They also put an essay up - first at the TPM Cafe, then at their primary site (USPatriotsUnited (http://USPatriotsUnited.blogspot.com) - that comments further on the "Right to Dissent and Demand Accountability". It's short, and appropriate for Camp Casey II as well.
All their work is open-copyright for the Citizens of the United States; they call their primary essays "The Patriot Papers".
Feel free to spread the words around - looks like the kool-aid is wearing off and our fellow citizens will need something to remind them of their nation's founding tenets. (Tho Cindy's doing a bang-up job without any fancy words!)

Hi Joy! Glad to see you posting (I remember you from the night of the Brad Show interview and story about the Raging Grannies! You called in, I think I remember?)
How's it going with the Ragin Grannies story? Give us an update!
Here's the link to that picture:

Thanks! And thanks for remembering me. My Mom is going to be moving to Tuscon, so I ended up calling this Raging Granny later and they are going to get in touch with my mom after she has settled in. My Mom is a long life Democrat (really she's more left the older she gets :hehe:) and she's really riled by this administration so I thought she would like to look into joining in with these wonderful older women. Considering she's spent all of her married life as a military wife, she really needs to get active now that my Dad has retired from the USAF.
I think we are seeing a real upswell of our movement. I'm just wondering why it took so many Americans to catch on to something I knew even before the Iraq war, that this president is a lying SOB.
