If all the media only report on the anti-war, then the country as a whole will not be informed of the counter protest in support of President Bush and the troops might have equal but sounds like more in numbers there!!!!

I would dearly love to have seen the looks and the Commies faces when they saw all the Patriots and bikers

My expeirence with the die hards is that they are so classless & clueless they talk w/o sense or knowledge. Just a LOT of script.

The ones reported to be there as "paid" will no doubt not be overly confrontal with the Rolling thunder. They take NO crap.

the brashness of stupid kids (we were all there once) is however sad.. Hope a lot of parents have to bail out a lot of thier kids.. there will be a confronting I would like to see.

He's probably hiding due to the death threats the moonbats gave him over his linking to reports that the troop surge in Iraq is working.

FNC on scene reporter, just said
on air, that the Protestors
only numbered about 5 thousand,
and that the counter protestors
(GoE) *also* seemed to be at
about 5,000 in numbers, and as
such, equal in numbers.

This thread is the place to be, apparently, if one is unable to be at the rally.

Bumping for MS.B and the Maine PGR. Did anyone get Ms. B's cell number for reports? I didn't think of it....

The featured speakers: Cynthia McKinney (I kid you not), Cindy Shehag, Ramsey Clark and Howard Zin. The fat guy from the Hip Hop Caucus leads off.

I see some "Impeach Bush" and some "Si Se Puede" signs.

Chant: "Hip Hop, Not War" LOLOL.

I like the way you (Lazarus?) think

Lazarus Long, aka Woodrow Wilson Smith, aka "The Senior" (the oldest man in the universe) is a character in a science fiction series by Robert Heinlein. The first story is "Methuselah's Children", written in 1953 or so, (I think) and still fresh today, which is included in a book called Revolt in 2100". That lead to several books The quote is from enough for Love(1973), and is probably included in "The Notebooks of Lazarus Long" as well. Another book in the series is "To Sail Beyond the Sunset" (1987), which a tale Lazarus Long's Mother, who isn't as old as Lazarus, thanks to being snatched from somewhere around now in time, into the distant future, whereas Lazarus got "there" the hard way, by living around 2,000 years, subjective.

The Methuselah story is pretty mild, but they get increasingly raunchy. Still good reads, and the sex is an important part of the story, or at least of the message. Needless to say, I have all of those books all but "Revolt" in hardcover. (I first read it at my in laws, possibly in about ).

CNN just played a fairly long story on the anti-war crowd, with old shots of Vietnam war protests, and with a brief 2 second shot and mention of counter-demonstrators. Typical of the dribble from the Commie news network.

The worst part of being sleeted-in here and missing the bus is that I would have liked to have hugged every one of those guys!

Watching answer goup--on mute tho, can't handle their garbage. Notice the difference in their participants and ours. This gal speaking now is reading from a text--wonder how many of these are paid demonstrators vs. actual "believers"

This next guy is a beaut! This could be the real ANSWER. Make a poster of this guy, put it on your refrigerator, and you'll lose your appetite for sure! What a yucky creep!!
