I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't want to demean the dedication and the courage of those people—good honest and responsible citizens (US citizens and Earth Citizens alike), humans with a conscience, each and everyone of them...
And Virginia Kennedy's open letter to Obama is a telling and moving account of where the movement is standing, right now.
But nobody cares—not the media, not the corporatist political elite, and not much of the people in America really.
And here are the reasons why:
You guys are not members of the Tea Party—and so anything you may have to say, any protest you may stage, simply doesn't exist in so far as the corporate News media are concerned. It's not news, unless they say it's news, right? Besides all the pundits knows you guys are just a bunch of well-meaning but deluded fringe lunatics who don't understand anything to the realities of the world we live in. Furthermore the number of people taking Global Warming seriously has decreased by a whopping 15% [Gallup poll], ever since Obama took office (I wonder why?)
2. AND THIS:
I give you Daniel J. Weiss, a senior fellow with the liberal Center for American Progress Action Fund, and Tony Cani, the Sierra Group’s national political director...
I rest my case.
Where else are they going to go, right?
Obama doesn't have a credibility problem; the Green movement has a credibility problem.
It matters little how softly or how loudly one speaks, when one doesn't carry a big stick.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
