I detest this kind of assembly. It accomplishes nothing, and is done so frequently by leftists who know full well that they will be arrested then released in an hour with no penalty, that it is little more than an exercise in cynicism.
It is not a form of protest to be used when you are part of a very powerful political bloc, you have substantial political backing, your membership fired up, etc.
Good heavens, is this a powerful bloc. Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical. The amount of political pressure they can directly bring to bear is staggering.
So start doing a headcount of congress right now, and after the next election when there will almost certainly be a Republican senate.
There should be a very strict bill that doesn’t just kill this dead, but puts nails in its coffin, and lets the judiciary know that they had better not even think about supporting this crap, or worse, legislating it from the bench themselves.
Dare I say it, “Put the fear of God in these people.”
I think I might take a ride up ther for that demonstration, but I have no ntention of being arrested.
The people who appear to be running this thing are going to ruin their crowd if they speak of being arrested.Most of the people who would like to show Obama their feelings are like myself, they aren’t professional jailbirds like the Occupy scum.
I am 69 years old and so far have ener seen the wrong side of a jail cell and am not going to volunteer for it in DC of all places. I know what the DC jail is.
