    Default Need An Important (to me) Question answered

    For people that know me sort of, you know I am serious ….. Should I wear my doggie costume to the anti war rally tomorrow (or peace vigil as it were) … there will be tears and heated talks (I hope) so is that too lite for the cause? This is an important matter, but if you don’t maintain some sort of levity, you get bogged down in depression … might make the news that way too because who knows if any media will pay attention … so if you have family in Iraq, or had, or are just against the war, how would you feel if you saw me ….. x****

    Well I say do it, but you do run the risk of uptight assholes giving you shit. You might as well have some fun with it, can't be serious all the time about everything. I realize why some people would get mad, but I have family that have served and I say go for it.

    I'd... say no, Ron. You might piss some people off, especially since there's a lot of people who take the whole war VERY seriously.

    Still, there are plenty of other occasions where the costume would be an awesome idea.

    If it's a rally do it but if it's a vigil probably not. Depends. if it's something you would normally do then you should do it.

    Ron, you strike me as the sort of person who draws attention wherever you go, irrespective of the dog costume.

    Just be yourself. I think it will be a lot more effective. (It wouldn't hurt to plant yourself in front of the news cameras --- a man of your wisdom and experience, long white hair and beard, twinkly blue eyes, and customary tie-dyed t-shirts will undoubtedly be noticed by the news crews.)

    Good luck.

    and what do you really think .... two reasons though, we need publicity .... i dont think we are going to get any even though it is moveon.org that is running it ... 2nd, like you know, there are some things i cant talk about, just say friends and family in iraq, that if i had the suit on, i could really speak my mind ... but so far, the poll says no ....i actually can email them and ask them what they think, but i sort of am looking for independant answers , not from one side or the other .... i think i am giving a short talk, so that is part of it too ... geez i dont know ..... x****

    Yeah... but the war is SERIOUS business for a ton of people, especially at a political rally... If it was, like, being orchestrated by a comedian or group of comedians (or celebrities, really), then I could see that flying.

    But Ron, if you want to wear the suit, go for it, man.

    i am also thinking, oh oh, there were some negatives that came out of the nam protests, but one of many things still stick in my mind .... gorilla theater .... sometimes dumb, sometimes memorable, like life i guess .... anyway, me, dog on a leash, with a sign of leash the dogs of war, might work ... and gang really understand this part, i dont do this to be cool or whatever, they never see me, so i am Anonymous ... its usually for a reason ... x****

    Ron, anyone telling you not to do this is a dumbshit. But at least get the pun right if you're going to do it.

    I just keep imagining Jeff Daniel in that dog suit from Dumb and Dumber. Oh and if you do this keep randy's quote on the sign, sounds better.

    i'd say no Ron....while you might be able to say more than you would were you not in the suit, people won't give you or you or your cause any serious consideration if you're in it....

    publicity doesn't outweigh credibility
    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.

    Yeah but you don't want bad publicity. Then the people just say "Fuck those crazy protesters. Dont they have anything better to do than play dress up?

    I guess I was trying to ask if the dog had any symbolic meaning. I understand what you are trying to do canx I wasn't trying to be smug. I still dont think it's a good idea though, and I am one of the people you were trying to bait into this discussion. Go out and be yourself.

    Ron, I say go for it. I only wish I could be there to back you up when you start getting some heat. Hopefully nobody gets too upset over it.

    as i am thinking this thru, they may, not sure, ask me to speak, well moveon has no clue of us lol, the current silent majority ie: people who just want the govt to do what it is suppose to, and not fuck our lives up so much, day to day, we have no clue how its going to end up .... sidebar ..... ... but i could go up to them and say i do want to talk, but i cant say what i want, because of things i cant say if you can see or photograph me, that sounds so bs, but i am out of the loop and they say that ... dont say anything, be a good little boy .. that just sucks, but i can think of a better way to say it ... black copters, no i dont believe in that stuff, but i know it sounds like i do .. people are just sheep not it is the end of days .. just a day in a life ... peace ..x****

    Ron why don't you wear both the costume when you get there and then wear your 'regular' clothes if you are giving the speech? That way you can be both provocative and be taken 'seriously' by those with no sense of levity or symbolism. I like Randy's quote best
