I don't know about the other pictures, but that 2nd to last one looks like the before picture on a constipation ad.
Greatest generation my arse.
Go cash your social security check, sit down and shut the **** up, Doug.
Thanks for nothing, you useless sack of crap.
1,000? From the looks of the photos they've overestimated by a factor of ten or so.
Wow - there are a whole 20 of them. Wonder if I can get that kind of coverage if I got 20 of my friends together too...
unemployed, senile and children of old hippies........what a bunch of lifes losers they represent

More than 1,000 people? Where are they??
It looks like a lot of people of my generation (baby boomers) are trying to relive their hippy protestor days. I'm just glad that I live in a country where people can protest. I am also glad that we have a President that doesn't make decisions by polls or whether or not people like him.
REAL demonstrations not only have NUMBERS, that is THOUSANDS, they have HOME-MADE signs, banners, etc.
Ah, the Drool Bucket Brigade is at it again. Every time I see pics like these, I'm heartened by the fact that these people are NOT on my side!
Now, where's the FReeper with an awesome version of this phrase...
What a bunch of hateful old geezers.
These people don't understand that the Islamo-Fascists will still try to kill them --- even though they disagree with President Bush.
These protesters need to get a new hobby. Bush-bashing will only help the enemy and give the "antis" high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.
No soup for them!
"Depends. Because we know you're busy stickin' it to the man."

What? No comments from the press about the "overwhelmingly white" audience?
Where are all the "youts"? Why do all the protestors look like they're at least 40 years old except for that one girl?
CRYBABY LOSER LIBERAL
My eyes aren't what they used to be. What is the first letter of the second word in that top photo?
Here's the Smackdown of the mayor of Salt Lake City by ED Hill:
You know, I always thought the mayor represented all of his people. This business of mayor's leading protest should be a cause for kicking them out. The polls in SLC show more support the war... so is he represent the people?
The "lady" on the right really should try harder to keep her legs together and also invest in a better pair of socks.
It's an "L". It's supposed to read "BULL SH**". Cute, huh?
We need a good set of pictures to capture "She who will not be messed with" also:
They don't have my favorite nickname for Nancy: "The Zombie Queen".
Ah! The face of mindless stupidity!
These people are all lightweights!
No, you're missing it. That little girl is looking at that lady, let's call her "squatting surrender monkey." The girl is clearly looking at Monkey with a mix of disgust and bewilderment. As if to say: "Sweet Smokin' Jesus lady! You and your geritric idiot friends are gonna get us killed!"
You have given these people just what they want, attention!
I see a lot of things here at FR that would be better served not to draw attention to.
We know these scum bags are out there.
I'm sure her children and grandchildren are extremely proud. /sarc
I don't even want to post what I thought it said in the event my own children run across this thread.
LOL. I think maybe you and I were thinking the same thing at first glance of that photo.
Think he needs to change his Depends.
