Austin TX and The Million Musician March

Last Saturday, we met on the state capital stairs to enjoy some music and a little walk around town.

“In four short years he has turned our country from a prosperous nation at peace into a desperately indebted nation at war. But so what? He is the President of the United States, and you’re not. Love it or leave it.” -Hunter S Thompson on George W. Bush

“Richard Nixon looks like a flaming liberal today, compared to a golem like George Bush. Indeed. Where is Richard Nixon now that we finally need him?  Nixon was a professional politician, and I despised everything he stood for — but if he were running for president this year against the evil Bush-Cheney gang, I would happily vote for him.” –Hunter

It was a great day for a march.  We wound catepillar style around marching up 6th Street where the South by Southwest Festival was just getting wound up.

“[T]his blizzard of mind-warping war propaganda out of Washington is building up steam. Monday is Anthrax, Tuesday is Bankruptcy, Friday is Child-Rape, Thursday is Bomb-scares, etc., etc., etc…. If we believed all the brutal, frat-boy threats coming out of the White House, we would be dead before Sunday. It is pure and savage terrorism reminiscent of Nazi Germany.”  –Hunter again

Being Austin, we even had floats.

We ended up at City Hall where there was more great music and moving tributes to our soldiers.

“All we have to do is get out and vote, while it’s still legal, and we will wash those crooked warmongers out of the White House.” –and more Hunter.
