There are times when I REALLY wish I had GPS. And yesterday, between 1600-1630 was one of those days. I tried to find Emanuel Cleaver’s office for the protest, but as I had written the adress wrong, I couldn’t find the office. So, frustrated, I was on my way home, when someone sent a message in to 980 kmbz, telling Shanin and Parks to ask Dennis Moore to look out the window.
So, I showed up at Dennis Moore’s office around 4:45, in time for the last twenty minutes of a protest I hadn’t even been aware of until I heard about it on the radio. I need to start finding more sources.
The good news with this though is that I was able to give my friend Kansas Meadowlark some audio of chanting for the protest video.
Also, from his blog, it would seem that there will be two Federal Reserve Protests next week, which I encourage all of you to attend.
The first one will be at Dennis Moore’s office at 1615 on Friday, and will be an Audit the Fed rally. Please, come with chants ready, and give them to the young man in shades and carrying a Betsy Ross Flag.
The second one will be in front of the Federal Reserve Building itself, and will be a Welcome Party for Chairman Bernanke. Any chants you give me at the Audit the Fed rally will also be used at the Welcome Party.
Just a heads up, these crowds are usually much rowdier, so come with water bottles, as you may find yourself chanting and cheering with the rest of the crowd, and that uses up more water then you think.
