    I think "What the heck is the band “The Lights of Zion” doing playing for the womens’ march?". I also think when will CODEPINK actually have an effect on the world? What has CODEPINK done for women so far with all the publicity it has garnered and after all these years? This march is a dud, we need conferences to discuss solutions, we need vision and a plan of action or guidestones. Not this useless herding of people. It’s a waste of time, a gloss over, it’s just window dressing. And it is disappointing that women fall for it again and again. Yes we have power but what is our vision? We don’t have one. Shouldn’t we at least be working on having a vision? Otherwise it’s going to be the male vision again that is forced on our children.
