On this fine May day as a protest for the war in Iraq that's costing us trillions as well as over 4000 U.S. soldiers, the longshore workers on the west coast shut down the ports affecting all ports on the west coast. I hope this is just the beginning of a protest that will continue into the future. We have elected officials who have ignored our pleas to end this war. Our hope was to change the status quo and put an end to this never ending war that is a drain on the U.S. economy as well as the human loss of our troops and Iraqi people. I hope this sends a clear message to those who voted to go to war that this nation no longer wants to be a part of a no win situation. It's time for Iraq to step up and take charge of their nation. This will be a bloody process that must proceed whether we like it or not. It is their country not ours.
I'll update this as soon as I check on the truckers and what they're planning. Until then PEACE!
