Dear Friend of Common Dreams,
Last night, residents of the small,
Maine coastal town Arrowsic came together for their annual town meeting.
Among other town business, they voted 71-17 in favor of a resolution asking President Bush and Congress to immediately
stop all war funding, to end American occupation in Iraq and to bring the troops home now.
No equivocating there.
Arrowsic is just across Casco Bay, about 30 miles from our
offices in the Old Port neighborhood in Portland. I know Arrowsic. And believe me, it's a typical, rural small town.
No mention of 'benchmarks'. No 'we
broke it, we have to stay and fix it'. No 'we have to keep funding flowing for the troops.'
The mainstream media doesn't tell
you the hundreds of other similar stories from towns all over the USA. We rarely hear the voices of ordinary
Americans, the voices of people just like those in Arrowsic.
Instead you hear from the John McCains. The Joe Liebermans. The retired General Talking-Heads who provide 'commentary' while
on the payroll of the biggest military contractors.
