Did you just receive our national CODEPINK alert? Check it out and take the action to email the White House... many people are doing it every second and here's what happened within minutes of sending out the alert... The White House called our LA CODEPINK office and talked with Jodie! See convo below.
Keep the emails going in--they know we are mad as hell and taking action!
Here's one of my fave letters so far:
President Obama, I doubt that you use force or harsh punishment on your children. Why do you think it works on whole masses of people? This was an opportunity for you to show the world that you really were interested in change. After centuries of wars, you could have chosen other means.

It was jane.
She told Mark the White House was calling.
What are you thinking about after the Presidents speech?
I told her
Jane....I totally hear what you are saying and the President has told us to stay open to all opinions and I understand you might feel that way. I want to keep our lines of communication open, but can't do it if I can't work. I have an email from your list hitting my box every second and can't even process it. Can you do something about that so our communication can be more productive? Can you send out another alert with a better address.
(I am thinking does it get any better?)
No I say, but maybe in your email program you could create a folder they all go to, I assume your system is that sophisticated.
She thanks me and says next time she will work with us to make it work better for getting it all to Obama.
I thank her and say I hope she passes the passion of the CODEPINK members on to Obama. That there were more in the street than we have seen in a long time. Thank him for walking the sleeping giant. We will do all we can to make sure he does not get the money from Congress.
She cordially says goodbye.
WOW they are really told to behave. It was a wild and weird conversation. DING DING DING the membership liked it. IT WAS FELT.
comments@.......here is the address she wants us to use in the future.
