Raging Grannies Sing Drill No More

If you haven't heard about the Raging Grannies, now is a great time to begin your appreciation for them.  They started in 1986 and have 'organized groups' around the world.  They typically sing protest songs about social and environmental injustices.  Learn more about them here and here.

I came across the Albuquerque Raging Grannies when Surfrider was organizing for the Hand Across the Sand event.  They sent me an email with a link to their song and said:
"We're 800 miles away from the nearest beach, but we want to offer our encouragement!   Please feel free to use our song at your demonstration.  It's the to tune of "Blowin in the Wind" which everyone knows and is a real crowd-pleaser"!

You people talk a good AL Gore game but, you never offer any clear atainable alternatives to carbon fules. The only thing you offer are alternatives that raise taxes and cost for everyone. Of course, you want my donations without ever pinpointing a reasonable solution. Just more money thrown down the drain as I am sure you will never offer anything except spending money. You are worse than the democrats.

Hey Blog Author,

I knew you would not post my comments. That's similar to how Obama and staff treat anything not to their liking. You are phoney.
