WATCH C-SPAN RIGHT NOW!!!

They are showing live footage of the Protests....it is awesome if I may say so. Not only is it live coverage, but there is no "pundit" speaking over it and characterizing them. So you get to see the protests how they are actually happening.


Bravo, C-Span, bravo!!

Watching C-Span, and one of the best signs I've seen is one that refers to Bush calling the aftermath in Iraq a miscalculation on his part.

The sign says,

"Your "miscalculation" cost thousands of lives!"

Others include:

"Quagmire Accomplished"
"How do you ask a soldier to be the last man to die for a lie?"
"Expose the 9/11 cover up!"
"Darn Good Liar"
"Bush's World Domination Tour: Next Stop Iran"

I am in awe of these protests...it is amazing!

I also saw some Republicans chanting "Communists for Kerry."

What makes me happy is the fact that such a large number of people are out and making their voices heard. You can see my mood, but this does a bit to lighten it up. But I can't prepare myself for election night.

I imagine that night already, when Bush steals another election, and I can feel it, too. It's like getting punched in the stomach.

Any idea what these people are being arrested for?

The sad part of this is we won't see any real coverage on the 24x7 cable shows or networks unless the protest turn violent.

Since protesting is a fundamental right of our citizens I wish these protest and the protest of the DNC had received more air time.

It was reported that they were arrested for "blocking traffic" and hospital entrances.

P.S. There are a few Republicans mixed up in the protests shouting "SHUT UP"

P.P.S There are also thousands of people chanting:

"Hey hey, ho ho, George Bush has got to go!"
"hey hey, ho ho, Fox News has got to go!"
and
"Fox News Sucks! Fox News Sucks!'

Hahaha...

They interviewed a Republican and here's what he said:

"I want to be positive, I want to support our wonderful President, and vote for George W. Bush back to the White House for 4 more years. We can have a positive future! I see a lot of hate groups here that hate America, but I believe we can have a great future with George Bush making America more safe!."

Excuse me, but that is drivel.

It looks like Mardi Gras. The one good thing about these protests is that it gets all the pathology assembled in one small area so that it can be better observed. Whatever these folks espouse, I reject. It makes it easy for me to sort out my own positions on things. You can tell a lot about a cause by observing its adherents. Kind of like the avatars you find here.

Yeah, I've always admired yours with the Giant Eagle taking a dump on the world.


At least you're honest.

Don't miss this though.

CNN is doing a bio on Cheney. That man is a MESS. They've covered his alcoholism and voting record and it's frightening.

Cheney voted against the Equal Rights Amendment for Women, against desegregation, against abortion rights in the cases of RAPE.

He's an ogre. The worst of the worst. Who selected this baboon for VP and who voted him in!?!

I always try to be honest. It is what is called integrity and the Eagle, Globe and Anchor is an emblem that stands for liberty and integrity.

Everything you enjoy in life, no matter where you live, is in some way dependent on that emblem and what it represents. The United States Marne Corps has been fighting for liberty since 1775 in every part of the world. The emblem stands for something real and significant.

You really should not make light of it . I take it a personal insult. If I were a moderator, I'd dock you 250 points.

The Onion said it best in one of their "people on the street" comments: "Dick Cheney's heart may in reality be a congealed mass of bacon fat, but to me, it's made of one thing: pure gold."

Grady,

It's not America we hate, it's Bush. He doesn't represent America at all. As one of the signs say, "Neo-cons have hijacked your party."

Hundreds of thousands of people marching won't convince you. Stick to your guns, and be stubborn. You are the reason America is in trouble.
