To those who can attend..

Could someone ask the two Senators why there is not a effort to stop this form of Domestic Terrorism?

We have had a Bomb placed at one station. Some recruiters have been directly attacked in public places in the name of demonstrations...

I fail to understand why there is no uproar over this

Has anyone ever asked these...ahem..."pacifists" how they can denounce violence towards murderous muslims yet attack our military?

Oh. Wait. Never mind. I was expecting a rational argument from dimwits. Silly me.

Hopefully it will be on CSPAN live if they can fit it into their agenda.

Man was it ever hard not to put quotes around “agenda”

I think we can safely say that it will become “terrorism” only when accidental collateral damage is a dead or injured journalist who ‘got in the way’ of a terrorist’s bomb! Then, as in the case of an embed or 2, the war will become a war. ‘Til then, it’s just a minor inconvenience not worthy of reporting to the public!

Now, how many Americans have any idea it is this bad?

The explosion in NYC had to happen right in the middle of Times Square to rate major coverage. Out in flyover country, this concerted campaign of sabotage is met only with the usual media whitewash about “isolated incidents,” and “peaceful protests.”
Imagine what would happen if the targets were mosques rather than military facilities.

Recruiting offices are the Fort Sumter of the twenty-first century.

God bless our men and women in uniform who defend my liberty to be silly.

They are better men than me. Freedom isn't Free.

Leftists hate America. They hate it's military might. They hate it's successful businesses and corporations. They want "change".

Photobucket

Freedom and Capitalism is "unfair". The America hating left doesn't want equality of opportunity, they want equality of outcomes.

"By definition, Progressives hate America. Why would any clear thinking, sane person want to change the greatest country that ever existed on the face of the Planet Earth?"

I hope a lot of people show up to join you. I can't make it since it's on the other side of the Continent, but I'll be with you in spirit.

We have one brewing right here...set for Saturday at a recruiting station in Tacoma. This is sick stuff, Jim. It really is.

These idiots claim they want “peace”, yet they perpetrate violence on innocent people, and attempt to shut down businesses just because they happen to be in the same area as a recruiting station.

God help us help ourselves.

You might want to consider hooking up a laptop cam up to UStream. It is free, and provides a video and audio stream. I am planning on using it to broadcast a gubernatorial debate later this month if I can secure a laptop during the event.

This is happening against military recruiting offices. The people being attacked are soldiers. Arm them to defend themselves against these evil people!

I can understand what your saying soldier dad..

But i have been retired from the military for just a hair over six months .. and I myself would be hesitant to place a weapon against American Citizens.

The charge would be assault and the soldiers, marines, airman, and sailors should only defend themselves with the proper amount of force to ensure their safety. But the government should speak up against this.. instead of giving tact approval.. the same goes for the press
