King Richard


Political protest announcement, most likely from 1973 or 1974:

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

People of SUCO, and all other people who value their Liberty!
A rally will be held on Monday, February 25th at 8:00 PM in the College Union Ballroom. The purpose of this rally is to DETHRONE KING RICHARD NIXON!!!
Our land is once again afoul with Tories who would keep the people in chains in order to increase their profits at the expense of our liberties. King Richard is but the monarch (and somewhat of a figurehead at that) at the head of this Corporate Dictatorship. The People's Bicentennial Commission recognize that there is more to securing our freedoms than simply getting rid of King Richard. He is but the top of the "iceberg of despotism" that is freezing our liberties. Yet, we also realize that it is important for all freedom-loving patriots - the new sons and daughters of Liberty - to have a point to rally around. The first American Revolution was more than a blow to King George!!! The second American Revolution will be a victory over of the common folks over the corporate monopolies and their political conspirators (Richard Nixon, to name one of them).
Therefore, be it resolved that...
THE REMOVAL OF KING RICHARD IS NECESSARY - WE MUST AGAIN TAKE CONTROL OF OUR DESTINY!!!!!
Sponsored by the Peoples Bicentennial Commission Representative will speak from:

1. Vietnam Veterans Against the War / Winter Soldier Organization

2. National Emergency Civil Liberties Union

3. SUCO Faculty

4. Peoples Bicentennial Commission

PLEASE ATTEND - HELP DETHRONE KING RICHARD

SUCO is almost surely SUNY Oswego or Oneonta as it was once used as an acronym for State University College at O*.

SUCO is here in Oneonta, no doubt.

Your blog is beautiful - I think that is perhaps the only way to properly describe it. There is nothing that compares to opening an old book and finding old treasures inside.

I shall be following your blog from now on. I hope you will also follow me at thealmostgrownup.blogspot.com

That's some real history. I wonder if the Nixon library would want it?
