what's christian about bush - finally almost home!!!
she thinks folks in yuma are not fooled by bush but she's nobody's fool.
off we go to the espresso shop - yes, yuma, arizona were it is 88 degrees at 6:00 in the morning, has an espresso shop - and it's not a christian place but it does have a young womon, 23 years old, behind the counter who doesn't think she is going to vote. in fact, she asks me, what election, when election, who election. i tell young wimmin like her about her foremothers and how wimmin, as well as men of color, earned the right to vote in this country. she nods solemnly and then leaves to help another customer. i'm pleased to see her returning to continue to talk.
when she says she doesn't have an opinion about politics i ask her if she has an opinion about her friends going off to fight a war. she does & she doesn't think it is right. i ask her if she has an opinion about her friends having jobs. she states the economy is pretty good in yuma, it is a booming town. i ask her if she cares about the other 8 million u.s. workers that do not have a job - she is. i ask her if she'd like to register to vote. she tells me she's already registered - i'm skeptical until she says some guy came into the coffee shop and badgered her just like - she motions to me. i grin & give her codepink info which she says she'll distribute during her break!
on to la jolla & my first delivery - by the time we reach l.a., our poll is 25 yeahs to 6 f.u.s to 2 thumbs down - and that's southern california! heading up 5 to the bay area, we only get yeahs!!!! at least 22 before dark falls again! peace, sam
