Decisions...

…are made by those who show up.

And a trio of bloggers is asking for your help to show up, or more appropriately, post up.

Croutonboy tipped me off to this, and I thing it’s an extraordinary idea.

Brian, Rick & Carol, along with Brave Humans, are trying to organize 30,000 bloggers to

“...act as a single voice for one moment in time.”

The purpose is not to make any particular political statements, but to, simply, make some noise.

Why? Because it’s there… because we can… because voices need to be heard. Or, in simpler reasoning; why not?

It’s an opportunity to stand-up and be counted… an opportunity to have your voice heard… an opportunity to “teach the world to sing” and to “shout from the rooftops”... okay, those are a little cheesy, but you get the idea.

Think about it, it worked for The Who’s in Horton Hears a Who… and it can work for the blog-o-sphere.

There’s no agenda attached… it’s not a Liberal thing… it’s not a conservative thing… it’s a change thing… it’s something aimed at bringing about change... and that’s all.

Sure, the catalyst was something said by a bat-shit crazy biatch conservative pundit, but it’s not who it is that prompted the day… it’s the chance to do... something.

Short of putting out a hit on her, I'm not sure what kind of effective statement can be made.
She doesn't care.
I AM NOT ADVOCATING PUTTING A HIT ON HER. (just to be clear).
Seriously.
She doesn't care.
I don't think anyone should ever pick up any of her comments and repost them or discuss them.
If she got no play, she'd go away.
(I'm totally Johnny Cochran).

I think that should be the movement.

Give this bitch no play.

None.

Am I missing something? Or does 30,000 bloggers posting an unusual word with a different message underneath each heading simply say "Look, 30,000 bloggers say 'discombobulate'! Hope you've taken that on board, world!"
