Radio Free Maine presents Jim Hightower and Cindy Sheehan

Jim Hightower speaking on Mixed Blessings We are in days of Mixed Blessings, that's when your 16 year old daughter returns from the prom with a Gideon Bible under her arm, said Jim Hightower as he addressed an SRO crowd at the Blue Hill Fairgrounds grandstand for about 45 minutes. Hightower dismissed those who say that organizing the left, Greens, Democrats, et al is like trying to herd cats. "I got to tell you, anybody who says that you cannot herd cats, never heard of a can opener. You can do it and our can openers are the values of fairness, justice and opportunity for all people."

Founder of Gold Star Families for Peace Cindy Sheehan speaking on Bush Lied, My Baby Died Cindy Sheehan's son, Casey, was killed in action in Iraq. She believes that Bush lied and her son died. Speaking at the Voices Stage for about 50 minutes, Sheehan said "My son was killed in an ambush, wearing his desert cammies with a green Vietnam flak jacket on. You know, they may as well have painted a target on his back with a sign SHOOT ME."
