SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Anti-war protesters spread throughout the city again Monday, with noisy demonstrations at businesses, a government building and San Francisco State University.

I'd like to see the person who came up with that sign. I have a feeling it's Michael Moore, though.

That is totally and thoroughly disgusting!

These folks are absolute idiots. All you have to do is show them a map of the middle east and ask them to point out Iraq in less than 3 hours to expose their idiocy. These people are either one of thousands of anarchists who are protesting simply to be protesting or just washed up hippies who are stuck in the 60s!

The only ones that will be left will be the left--the diehards. The younger ones who are just out there because it's fun and want to rabble rouse, will get bored and be onto their next vice du jour.

When they keep asking why they can't fund social projects we can point to the overtime we had to pay the cops.

Better yet, put them *in* the middle east, point them in the direction of the United States, and give them all the time they need to make it back home. That'll shut them up, one way or another.

Seriously, I'm all for intelligent debate with dissenting opinions, but these people are well beyond assinine.

As long as they protest quietly, they should be allowed, but when they destroy other peoples' property or keep people from getting to their jobs, then they should pay for what they've done. They should reimburse anyone for lost work time, they should pay for anything they've broken, they should clean up their own messes.

Randall Sanderson (in the pic above the old lady scraming at the transamerican Bldg.) is a well known free trade opponent and Greenpeace lunie from Minnesota- this POS has been all around - and I mean all around trashing anything he can while advocating anarchy.

Wonder where he gets his financial support?

Tell me where is sanity?

After I psoted it I remembered the chick in Israel.

Still, a bulldozer would be quite effective at breaking a protest.

I couldn't agree with you more. I'd take it further and argue that by purposefully and unnecessarily obstructing the normal course of affairs they are aiding and abetting, or at least providing comfort, to the enemy ... aka "treason".

Operation Stinko Pinko!

Take one Super Water Gun or bicep water gun
Add red dye
Add bottled stink
Add ipecac (in case in gets in their mouth. vomit on that!)

Then find the highest density Pinko area at the protest
 

And Show The World Their True Colors!


 

(just for informational puposes.)
