Liberals protesting against liberals....it's going to be a great week.
It's going to get bad folks! In an election year where Democrats should be heavily favored...they are not, and the reason these whackos are protesting is because they feel their party is not liberal enough. The best they get to represent them is little Barry Obama? They see the writing on the wall and they are very upset.
The protests will overshadow the convention! The silent majority will be watching....they won't like what they will see.
Can you say....McCain in a landslide?

I'm torn between going downtown to watch everything, or staying well away from downtown until it's over. Did notice more guards on the trains, so security perked up over the weekend.

You guys do realize these kids are part of Rush Limbaughs "Operation Chaos" that he's been promoting for the last 2 months, right? You guys do realize they are Republicans posing as Democrats to cause trouble, right?

During the 1984 Republican convention in Dallas there were a lot of people that showed up to protest. They were about as weird looking bunch as I've ever seen, looking more like punk rockers than hippies. There was one that was sitting smoking a joint on the steps of city hall telling people that he was going to burn a flag. In a short time a bunch of these characters appeared on the scene, followed by a news crew. He said to one of the onlookers "Now watch this", and pulled out the flag and burned it. A number of people were arrested with out any head busting, the news crews left and it was over. At about four A.M. the morning after the convention ended, the streets around the city jail were filled with high dollar motor homes. The streets were filled with these characters that had been released from jail. They were loading on to these motor homes that already were loaded with more of the same sort of people. With all of this going on I noticed that there were no police present on the streets. I noticed when they were leaving that all of these vehicles had California license plates. Right then it dawned on me that these guys were actors straight from central casting. The flag burning incident, became the platform for George H.W. Bushes presidential campaign. Things involving politicians and protesters might not always be what they appear to be.
