I've been a protester for eons, it's always great to see the pix. I have pix of protesters in my photo albums. I was in touch with the "turn your back on Bush" protesters, they were very peaceful and orderly protesters.

yeah, been a protester on & off for decades myself.

on our local news they did show the turn your back people & interviewed one. I appreciated that, since they also showed the ? anarchists breaking through the barriers. But i'll want to hear more about thier side too. But also they pepper sprayed pple who threw snowballs through the fence or barriarts. That seemed overrecation to me.

Thanks for the link nursechrissi! I signed the petition. This is not the time to give up! Yeah, I think the pepper-spraying was overreaction. I did get pissed off when I read where some people attending the inauguration got spit on. I think that's pretty uncalled for. The people who wanted to enjoy the inauguration certainly deserved to. I like to "protest nice".

Nice protesters, as long as they aren't stopping me from getting to work on time, I can live with it. However, I don't see myself getting involved in any protest any time soon. It's too cold outside (I have other reasons as well).

Why would anyone protest the democratic election and inauguration of a president? The thing that most comes to mind when you see these images is hate. Hatred of the President and those that support him.

Gee, I have no idea.

Maybe because they disagree with his policies and think his ideas are wrong?

I mean, it IS possible to disagree with someone and not hate them.

I don't do this very often, but I have to back Pax on this

(I'm not fond of protesting either, I see no point in how it's effective, and I personally see it as a form of self-destruction. However, if it means that much to you, do it. Just don't get in the way of my driving. )

If you want hatred, go here http://zombietime.com/

I don't know. I think there are times when protesting is appropriate, and there are times when protesting can be a little obnoxious.

Of course its possible to disagree with someone and not hate them, but these protesters in the streets certainly don't realize that with their behavior.

There is plenty of time for protest, but an inauguration should be a time for unity and community, not the disrespect that gets thrown at peaceful people celebrating the election of a new president. John Kerry certainly does not agree with the President, but he did not interupt the president when he was speaking or engage in any of the other bahavior that the protesters did.

Doesn't the President and his supporters have the right to celebrate the inauguration without being harrassed or interupted?

NO, if they want a private party celebrating the inauguration then they should rent a big venue.

Sting if you believe in freedom and democracy you can't possible believe what you just wrote. Freedom of speech, people are practicing it as much as they can before it's taken away.

There is no unity in this country and there won't be under this president, he's the most divisive president we've had in my lifetime.
