Not One Damn Dime Day - Jan. 20, 2005. The anti-inauguration!
If you are disappointed with GW Bush's re-election: and since our
religious leaders will not speak out against the war in Iraq, since our
political leaders don't have the moral courage to oppose it,
Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Damn
Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day" those who oppose what is
happening in our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national
boycott of all forms of consumer spending.
During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not
one damn dime for gasoline. Not one damn dime for necessities or
for impulse purchases. Not one damn dime for nothing for 24 hours.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day," please boycott Wal-Mart, Kmart,

the people of the United States of America, not for the international
corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations
and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The
politicians put the troops in harm's way.
Now 1,200 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000
Iraqis have died. The politicians owe our troops a plan - a way to
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing
agenda to rant about.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day" you take action by doing nothing.
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind our
religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility to
end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people.
