I have to say I really don't disagree with Barney Frank's point of view regarding the Washington March last week. He makes some great points in this interview with Joy Behar, as well as the interview he had 2 weeks ago with Sirius radio host, Michaelangelo Signorelie.
The march in itself was a great thing, however marching on a Sunday when congress isn't in session doesn't and didn't really do much. I realize the main idea was to attract media attention, but seriously, how did we do kids? We didn't.
A few mentions here and there, and that was it. More than half of America had no idea we had something going on.
Now, had we have had this march during the week, I really feel we could have turned way more heads and ruffled more feathers then what you saw last Sunday. The giant media outlets would have had no choice but to pay attention to our cause.
What I did see at the march were a lot of young kids who were all fired up and ready to go at their first ever rally. Sure, this a good thing. But in Barney Frank's point of view, the activism has to continue when you get back on the bus to go home. I'm not so sure it will.
