National Moon Day

It is obvious to me that this great country of ours is in dire straits. Mired in an economic quagmire, the national debt spiraling out of control, gridlock in Congress and a President who doesn’t seem to realize that he can’t will a recovery by wishful thinking, it’s time for the people of this great nation to make ourselves heard and seen. It’s time for all of us to go to Washington DC and let our elected officials know just what we think. It’s time for a National Moon Day.

What is a National Moon Day? I’m glad you asked. It’s to be a day set aside, almost holy; a day when every man, woman, child, toddler, infant, dog, cat, bird, mouse and rat (excepting those already ensconced in the Capitol building) will descend upon our nation’s capital city, gather together on the National Mall, peacefully, but with steely determination; a day to show our government leaders that we are serious and mean business. Then at precisely 1:00 pm, a nice round number, this great mass of humanity will, in unison, give a collective Bronx cheer, lasting for one minute. Then, on cue, everyone present will pivot 180 degrees, face the Washington Monument and simultaneously drop their drawers and “Moon” the Capitol and our Congressmen. The mooning will last twenty seconds and then everyone will disperse.

Such an act of complete meaninglessness and stupidity will send a powerful message to our elected officials, a message that we are tired and frustrated. It’s time the people of this still great nation were heard and seen. And it doesn’t matter if a Democrat, Republican, Tea Partyer, Independent, Liberal or Conservative is shocked or offended. They’re all to blame and they’re all worthy of our wrath.

The date for this great event is October 13, 2011, coinciding with the full moon. The demonstration is limited to those actions noted above. Any speech making will be prohibited; no obscene gestures, no profanity, no “Full Monty’s”, no alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs and no smoking will be allowed.

So be a part of a movement, mark the date on your calendar and show our elected officials that we’re ready to bend over and stand up to them with this one really idiotic gesture and, come Election Day, back up your bottom with your vote.
