YOU did it! 5000 behind us!

Credit:  https://analusnews.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/thank-you-message.png?w=640

Though I know we'll never possibly meet face-to-face, I know, believe me, I know, that our lives have been touched somehow.  My God... with this I am so humbled...

From the northeast corner of the United States to the proud islet known as the Isle Of Man, we are there.  From the merciless corners of Angola, Rwanda, Iran, or Libya, we are there.  From countries where freedom to love one another is a RIGHT, we are there.  And from that huge mass of a country - Russia - where even the most basic rights are curtailed - we are STILL  there.

Thank you.  Thank you so much.

ezs note:  Well... I have some mixed feelings about Mr. Patterson's thoughts here.  Granted, on occasion you will have lunatics like Louie Gohmert around, (my sympathies, first district of Texas)  but the majority of representatives - Democratic or Republican - will at least be willing to grant you a hearing.  It is far too solipsistic to automatically play the "blame the representative" game.  If you didn't vote in the last election, I'm sorry - it's YOUR fault.

ezs note:  Californians: at the very least, I urge you to do the following.  1)  urge your neighbors to vote NO to the crappy group "Privacy For All".  2) E-mail your California friends to vote the same way.  3)  If you haven't done so, register.  4) VOTE!!!
