Muddied Colors

Homeland Security. Has muddied beautiful colors.

Yellow. Sunshine. Joy. Happiness. Energy. Elevated. Significant risk of terrorist attacks.

Orange. Enthusiasm. Creativity. High. High risk of terrorist attacks.

Red. Strength. Passion. Determination. Severe. Severe risk of terrorist attacks.

Pink. Code Pink. I love it that Code Pink has thrown itself into the color coded alerts. Compassion. Calm. Neutralizing violence. Code Pink is a women initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement that seeks positive social change through proactive, creative protest and non-violent direct action.

Me? I wanna be pink.

I like to wear bright colors, but mens clothing seems to always come in boring, muted colors. When men want to dress "professionally," we only have one choice: Death Grey.

But my favorite single color is white.

I'd be worried that "Code Pink" would be the start of Homeland Security's defence against the homosexual terrorist agenda.

I love how active they are. I saw they have a presence at the Gonzales hearings as well.

What dickeybird said. Code pink is cool. Seen them at a couple of rallies in DC that I have been to.

Pink is "owned" the the breast cancer support movement in Canada. It signifies support. I like it.

I love all those colors---even though I look terrible in yellow. Still, I refuse to let the government take away my color love. Bastids.

I love it!

Pink was my favourite colour as a child. It still makes me feel girly.

All the colors make me nervous. None of their color coded warnings put me at ease. I wish I could look at them artistically but I can't. Each color just paints a picture of fear in me.
