MoveOn.Org Hosts Nashville Event Thursday

Nashville Wastes Local Tax Dollars on Unwinnable Civil War

Nashville: On Thursday, August 16, members of Political Action in Nashville will release a new report, "War at Home" highlighting the cost of the Iraq War to residents in every congressional district including the 5th Congressional District. Since the Iraq war began, Congress has spent almost a half-trillion dollar on an unwinnable civil war. The cost of the war to residents in the 5th Congressional District is $855 million.

Every day the war goes on means more of our hard earned tax dollars are
wasted on an endless religious civil war that cannot be won, said Chris
Lugo, local MoveOn member. In Nashville that money should be spent where
we really need it on our public schools, health care system and public
infrastructure. We have had enough. Rep. Cooper needs to vote in September to
end this war and bring our troops home, concluded Lugo.

After the event, local MoveOn members will deliver the report to Rep. Cooper
at his office in Nashville.

I thought you guys might like my response to the CNN article about the poor guy who lost a pinky finger tip during a violent confrontation with a health care protester...

"If this poor bleeding man who is minus a pinky finger tip was demonstrating on the opposite side as, then he is obviously one of those nutcase Americans who believe we should all individually pay for our own care, regardless of how catastrophic our situation may be, thus he can just put a Bandaid on his poor little pinky and Move On"
