ACLU Action Kit
WooHoo! It's finally here! My ACLU Action Kit has arrived! (Batteries not included.)
I am a bit disappointed,though. I didn't get an ACLU Action Figure - a Birkenstock wearing, middle-aged lawyer with faux leather briefcase inside of which is an organic tomato and sprout sandwich wrapped in recycled waxpaper, balding with long salt and pepper hair tied in a ponytail, blue jeans, colorfully bizarre shirt, and Camel colored corduroy jacket. And, of course, the mandatory earring.He's a lot like Larry Finkelstein (Alan Rachens) on "Dharma and Greg".
Anyway, back to the ACLU Action Kit. The letter says, ah, let's see...Bush Administration, evil...Patriot Act, evil...Ten Commandments and Pledge of Allegiance, evil...ok, here we are, "But, here's what we need to remember: In America, there are bedrock values that can never be compromised. Privacy rights, free speech, religious liberty, fairness, equality, the rule of law...such principles define our country. Those who would take away our freedoms are far out of the mainstream. They are dangerous. And they must be vigorously opposed."
Wow, it's like they're looking in a mirror, but they don't recognize themselves. One item was enclosed with which I do agree - a decal that reads:
Y'all might have noticed the "Merry Christmas, ACLU" card to the left. It is part of the Stop the ACLU blog to hinder if not literally stop the ACLU from stealing Christmas this year. It's called OPERATION NATIVITY and is free to all. Link on over and pick-up the pic of your choice. The folks at Stop the ACLU are dedicated to exposing the activities of the ACLU and their Communist minions. Give them all the support you can.
