      Hi, Good Day, and thanx for all you do and don't, All; you have great points. I know our brothers and sisters, who are innocent, feel the truth of all words, and actions done, in their names- an average prisoner costs the taxpayer over $ 40,000. per year to falsely incarcerate.  Yet, a high profile, political prisoner, disabled, medically ill, etc., prisoner costs the taxpayer more like $ 100,000. a year in our taxes; and when they're innocent of the crimes to which they were convicted, that's theft of the taxpayer's $, as well.  Very down to earth, true action, well done.  For those interested, I estimate the amount of prisoners who were innocent of the crime for which they were convicted and incarcerated, to be over 10 %; here's a sure way to investigate   :)

      Luckily, "we, the people...", can still be the voice for those unheard; let us do what we can do to support Leonard's parole.  Thanx, again.  Ciao.    :)

      And I so agree with Michael and Alan if others can do it over frivolous things then we can stand up and protest whats most important to us...I'd for sure love to be involved in a protest with 750,000 people....All fighting the good fight!!!

      I'm with Michael on this. If we can organize the masses to support causes on sites like change.org and to volunteer in our communities, there's no excuse for not using that same source of motivation to organize protests on issues that are the most important to us all.

      If Republican teabaggers can do it with their frivolous (and wasteful) 'tea parties', there's no reason we can't as well, and not only outnumber them in the process, but do so in a way that is more constructive and productive in nature.

      I have been to some of the small anti-war protests in Portland, Oregon and Seattle Washington in 2007 and 2008 with 10,000 or at the most 25,000 protesters.  There I meet some of the old hard-core protesters of the 1960 and 1970's who talk about crowds of 500,000 to 750,000 protesters.  How come that doesn't happen any more?  We have way better communication these days with cell phones, Internet, Internet on cell phones, 500 television stations, twitter, my space, face book, etc?  I would love to be somewhere with 750,000 protesters!
