7 Days to ETF

Monday, November 16, 2009 , 0 Comments

Come my tan-faced children,
Follow well in order, get your weapons ready,
Have you your pistols? have you your sharp-edged axes?
Pioneers! O pioneers!

For we cannot tarry here,
We must march my darlings, we must bear the brunt of danger,
We the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

O you youths, Western youths,
So impatient, full of action, full of manly pride and friendship,
Plain I see you Western youths, see you tramping with the foremost,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

Have the elder races halted?
Do they droop and end their lesson, wearied over there beyond the
We take up the task eternal, and the burden and the lesson,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

- Walt Whitman, Pioneers! O Pioneers!

Just a reminder, End the Fed is next Sunday November 22nd, exactly one week from today. Last year we loitered around the Ferry building at 10a before heading up Market St, I'm not sure if that's changed but that's where I'll be.

7 days should give you enough time to clear out your schedule and slap together a sign, SF.

For some bizarre reason, California's own Cindy Sheenan will actually be doing her ETF in Charlotte - now I understand hating on Bank of America's home Fed bank but Charlotte? That's not even a real Fed bank, it's like the Lite version. That's like picketing at Atlanta's Birmingham branch or even better, San Francisco's Salt Lake City branch. Oooh, bet that's some hot protesting.

She spoke at last year's ETF just after Election Day, when the everyone's stickers were still all slapped around town, but it made sense for her to do so in San Francisco. I can't figure out what business she has in Charlotte.

Last year's went something like this. I also went in April and I was terribly disappointed in you, San Francisco.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
