hello again to all our posters ....
it's me again: "lil' jimi":
dissident, provocateur,
aggravator of this particular "civil unrest" .... (very Very civil!)

((caution to all of our "too-sensitive-for-political-type-stuff-which-they-can't-agree-with" Babblers: PLEASE, please, PLuH-LEEZ,

(heh, heh .... like that's going to do any good!)

ah, that's better ... .. now that we're down to the-strong-of-neurotransmitter and reasonably adult-of-maturity, and it's just us folks here ..... can we ... message ?

i was just hoping that we could all social-like discuss the social experiences of what it's like to live in the social society that our Mr. Robbins is a-living in with us. To wit:

"This past weekend, Susan and I and the three kids went to Florida for a family reunion of sorts. Amidst the alcohol and the dancing, sugar-rushing children, there was, of course, talk of the war. And the most frightening thing about the weekend was the amount of times we were thanked for speaking out against the war because that individual speaking thought it unsafe to do so in their own community, in their own life.
Keep talking, they said; I haven't been able to open my mouth. "

which i felt was the crux of his message (and my post).... and which, i felt, most of our responders didn't seem very responsive to ... very much, anyway.

anway ...

it is because i have felt this 'unsafety' about speaking out about these important things and that i have felt like i haven't been able "to open my mouth" .... that i'm starting to fear the consequences .... consequences like ... isn't there a penalty to pay for succumbing to what other's have called the "sedition of silence"?


"'Politics!'- schmolitics! ," i say .... how about just *freedom of speech* ? .... Oh, yeah, even *here* in our, oh-so, sacred Psycho-Social space.

now, if you have felt this or fear that and are willing to try this out with me and our pals, come on down!

and, if you are offended that i bring these issues up, then just please ignore me .... it is really easy .... everyone else does it all the time.

i promise to be real, Real civil-like.... honest!

to those easily-offended who are still reading this: I apologize, in advance .... and later too as the need's be ....

and as i wrote in the 1st instance:
> i thank you for your patience.
> Peace,
> ~ jim

" .... same as it ever was... "

as i asked before, "Opinions?"
or experience
or inexperience
or poetry
or comedy
any other dang civil thing you got...

(just no crying, okay? i'm really Not hurting anybody... really.)
~ jim

p.s. i like "agreance" okay, but i dont' like them biscuit-whoever's tunes.
