Tommy Smothers Has Some

tommy smothersThank goodness for Tommy Smothers.  When they gave him his Emmy for writing (40 years late) he had the guts to speak his mind and the Emmy director didn’t cut away (like he did with everyone else who said anything political).  In his acceptance speech Tommy Smothers said, “It’s hard for me to stay silent when I keep hearing that peace is only attainable through war. And there’s nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action … The freedom to hear is just as important as the freedom of speech.”

People, we need to stand UP and make ourselves heard.  If we don’t we’ll get four more years of the same and we’ll be a hearbeat away from armageddon. Donate to Barack Obama’s campaign here.  Register to vote here. Find your local polling place here.
