Wow, what a turnout so early in the morning!

I'm so proud and God bless every one of you.

As for the muzzies and pinko freakos, they're ugly and bone-chilling.

Even though I disagree with REPUBLICANS protesting Bush, thanks for the pictures - my wife said she saw a bunch of you going back to the Burger King parking lot afterwards. I got to see Air Force One land at the airport at least ; )

Great pix!

Thanks for posting them.

Unfortunately, apparently from his speech, Bush didn't get the messages!

Unfortunately, the TEXT report of this conservative anti-Bush protest (from the Associated Press) was MUCH less positive.
We REALLY need to watch what words we use to express our concern with the President's policies, IMHO -- particularly around the media.

Demonstrators protest outside Bush immigration speech in Irvine

By GILLIAN FLACCUS
The Associated Press
IRVINE

Several hundred demonstrators from both sides of the immigration issue protested outside President Bush's speech Monday at an Orange County hotel.

With Congress returning from a two-week recess, the speech let Bush relaunch his proposal for a temporary guest worker program. It also gave a venue for protesters in a region where the immigration debate has become increasingly heated.

More than an hour before Bush arrived, protesters from the Minuteman Project the volunteer border patrol group whose co-founder ran for Congress in Orange County were chanting "Go back to Mexico" and "God Bless America."

Across a driveway, a cluster of demonstrators also chanted and waved peace signs to protest the Minuteman group, Bush's immigration policy and the war in Iraq. In all, there were about 250 protesters, split evenly between both sides.

The protest outside the Hyatt Regency Irvine illustrated a political divide in Washington, D.C., where lawmakers remain far apart on whether to crack down on illegal immigrants or embrace them as vital parts of the U.S. economy.

Bush, speaking to the Orange County Business Council at an invitation-only event, said he wants a law that will strengthen border security while giving temporary guest worker permits to illegal immigrants in low-paying jobs.

"It seems rational to me and logical to me to say, 'OK, fine, you can come and do a job Americans won't do for a temporary period of time with a tamperproof card,'" Bush said.

Barbara Coe, founder and chairwoman of the group California Coalition for Immigration Reform, was among demonstrators mingling with members of the Minuteman Project.

"Bush is a traitor to this country," Coe said. "I am terrified for the future of my country and my children. It is our hope that this treacherous amnesty bill will be defeated and our further hope that our borders will be secured and the lives of our people protected."

Thanks, RonDog. I don't understand what Bush is thinking on this issue. Would he be welcoming these people on his ranch?

Nice pics, Ron, thanks.

I like this one in particular...

It says, “No human being is illegal.” Tell me about human beings... over 45 million of abortions have been performed since Roe v. Wade.

You're welcome!
YOU did all the HARD work, though -- taking all those marvelous pictures, and then posting them here.
I just BUMPED your thread a bit.
FWIW, your thread went from about 300 "thread views" this morning to almost 450 now:

Not bad, considering that your thread was stuck in the relatively obscure "Bloggers & Personal" backwaters. :o)

Tell me about human beings... over 45 million of abortions have been performed since Roe v. Wade.

While it may be argued that "no human being is illegal" ...
...it is demonstrably true that the ACTIONS of many human beings are in fact illegal -- and/or immoral -- as you suggest.
