    Anyone up for an Occupy OccupyWallStreet "flash" protest? I'm thinking we get at least 15 to 20 rational-thinking people to show up with pro-American, pro-free market, anti-socialist banners, stick around long enough to rile up the protest-monkeys occupying the park and to get on the cameras, and then announce politely that we've made our point and now we're leaving because it wouldn't be fair to everyone else if we monopolized the park to the exclusion of everyone else?

    A little tourists' cornucopia from the big, bad OccupyWallStreet thingey. I took the images below on my way to work this morning - discarded most of 'em cause they were just too pathetic - and thought I'd share them. My absolute fave is that earnest-looking upper middle class white kid in the bottom 4 pix (my "vignettes") - especially the last one, where he's so neatly folding his Buzz Lightyear towel - probably still smells like the Downy fabric softener mommie used when she washed it for him. Please feel free to borrow as you wish, and to editorialize as...

  • Protest Buttons - We the People

    So, somebody asked if I could come up with some more protest images. Mind you, I'm not a particularly creative sort, I just borrow a lot and mash it all together with GIMP to see what comes out. Well, in that vein, I borrowed a great image somebody else came up with, of a raised fist and the slogan "We the People." That was just too hard to resist - my apologies up front if you're the creator of that little gem. At any rate, here are 8 variants on that image, set up as lapel buttons - as far...
  • The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance - and our bill is past due.

    The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance Let us not get too blase about our victory with Senator Scott Brown - Obama and the leftists are playing it coy right now because, quite frankly, they were too arrogant to be able to comprehend the possibility that they might not own Massachussets lock, stock, and barrel - however, they have absolutely no intention of simply giving up on their cherished, decades-long dreams of imposing socialist/communist-style medicine on Americans. No, what they will do now is try the soft-sell - they tried the hard-sell and got it thrown back in their arrogant,...
  • In Recognition of the Holiday Honouring the Rev. Dr. M.L.K., Jr.

    Just a little graphic in honour of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who is to be honoured for his service to this country tomorrow, and an illustration of just how far some have fallen from the legacy of Dr. King's work and sacrifice even as they reap the benefits thereof:
