“Trumped Up”

August 20, 2011

The days of August remains very warm, afterall it is still the season of summer. Still have the two fans going continuously. It actually saves on the electricity bill, if it gets to warm one will going swimming as one did yesterday which was only 20 minutes and still was good enough. These two chaps who are U.S. hikers and wondered across the border into a most unfriendly country are now sentenced to 8 years by the Revolutionary court. These young men have 20 days to appeal the sentence. An interview was underway recently asking questions of the President of this country.The interviewer was Christiane Amanpour. Will not dignify in name recognition b/c the least of all his radical views especially when it comes to dealing with any other country besides his own. History has proven this to be so. These trumped up charges are unfounded and specifically that of spying. That in one’s humble opinion is completely bogus. These three hikers are Shane Bauer who is from Minnesota: Josh Fattal is from Philadelphia: and Sarah Shourd who was arrested in July 2009. She is the fiance of one of the two lads. Sarah was released on humanitarian reasons due to a medical condition. It would be advantagous to have the denoted states in which these lads have families or the regional states rally around their immediate release and utimately cease the charge/ charges against them. That would be logically sound. I for one will express one’s opinion as to that coming about. Will others in this state do that as well. As Wisconsin is a regional and adjacent to Minnesota. Let one suggest a great and promising cause. One will certainly lead the way by mere suggestion. This state loves a good protest or a protest generally so why won’t these people rally around these two lads who are so far from home and away from their families.
