Presidential protesters made their voices heard in chants and signs Wednesday outside Dobson High School. Catholics pray for Obama at vigil SLIDESHOW: President Obama's visit to Mesa Dobson buzzes with excitement over Obama Text of Obama's speech The protesters, about 500 to 600 strong and growing, began arriving as ticket holders walked in.

It's starting to happen! The media shut this out yesterday. I didn't see anything of it.

I knew the protests were coming, I just didnt't know how long.

My question:

Will they be outraged at school kids protesting politics? They certainly were upset that school kids supported Obama, but what about protesting?


On a side note, I agree with the sign. When will politicians learn that debt is bad, no matter how you spin it. Some debt can be okay, but I'd say this country no where near solvent.

Good question and i don't have an answer for you as I wasn't one of those people.

More of this is going to happen.

In all honesty, they are the ones who are being robbed the most, our children. Our education system sucks and they are going to get slammed with taxes they do not deserve.

They seem to have no voice right now. Everyone is worried about their own asses.

We are in gigantic trouble Mick.

It's going to start escalating at a high pitch now.

The protests are going to get bigger, our economy is going to continue to tank.

Call me crazy, but i can feel it...

Massive pain and suffering is coming.

Civil unrest is coming and it's going to be here very very soon.

Massive pain and sufering is probably an exageration.
Suffering in terms of people might not be able to buy that new plasma they had their eye is more realistic in my opinion.

People wont be dieing in the streets and thats what it usually takes to mobilise the population.

Obama has 2 options:

1: Do nothing and make a hasty return to the US economy of the 1920's


2: Stick some more chips in the pot to get people gambling again.

America was in more debt than it could ever feasibly pay of pre Bush so this is just an extension of credit.

Its like someone said:

If you owe the bank 1000; you're in trouble
If you owe the bank 10000000; they're in trouble
