Going to protest Pres. Bush tomorrow

Tomorrow morning Bush will be about 20 minutes from my university addressing the House Democrats on their retreat. There's going to be a huge rally, not just against Bush but also encouraging the House Dems to get some backbone. I plan on going and hopefully rounding up some fellow students to be a part of this. I'll report back tomorrow with pictures and what not

I'm excited, I've protested Karl Rove but never the President

I´d think more of this if your username wasn´t "u2DEMOCRAT". I would protest against Bush but I think you´re a little too biased to have a 100% objective opinion.

Just the fact that you and your treasonist friends
can do something like this
proves that our great leader
is wonderful.

Would you have dared to do this in Iraq
against Saddam??

Just trying to put this in the proper context.


now, I gotta go listen to Hannity

every time we do something, we must ask ourselves, "would Saddam have allowed me to do this?" and then, when the answer is "no," we must thank our Great Leader for liberating us from Saddam.

I bet there are plenty of Republicans who want to protest him too. You can see the guy for what and who he is and judge him on his words and actions regardless of party affiliation-or you can't. I have made my judgments about Bush through observation and thinking and evaluation of his actions-how I feel about him has nothing to do with being a Democrat. There are also plenty of Republicans who will defend the guy no matter what he does just because of that elephant thing..

Oh man, I remember how the news reported about his case last year this time around.
Still nothing happened?

Good luck and have fun, U2Democrat.

You GO, girl!

Though everyone who applauds our "freedom to protest" should note that in other countries, you probably don't need to apply for a permit to have a protest (could you see the democracy demonstators in East Germany or any city square in 1989 doing that? Would 1989 have been 1989?) , and other countries probably don't have "private property" laws where you can't hold a protest on privately owned property of any kind. Maybe in other places you do have to apply for a permit, but from the look of things, that can't be the case in, say, France, for example. Maybe it is in Canada? 35 yrs ago nobboy was required to apply for a permit to protest Vietnam, and even if they were, the permits could not have been as strict, otherwise, we couldn't have had the size protests. (And don't grouse about Vietnam, hippies, etc; what matters is the RIGHT to protest....what do you do, sign an agreement that : "we will no be violent" or do this or that"? How many police were secrely planted (it was revealed later) in the crowd to stir up trouble? A practice that is common again.)
As some of you point out. And violence has nothing to do with it....

Which means that holding a public protest at, for example, that most common gathering place for Americans these days, the property around a shopping mall, you can't protest. In the past 4 yrs in Albany group after group has tried to protest the war (and other issues, we have a big Lebanese community here for example) and the police have forced them out within 15 minutes. I've wateched t happen. Malls: the common public gathering place in America, but privately owned. Hmmmm.

And don't forget, under the Provisions of the Patriot Act II, any gathering of TWO PEOPLE or more can legally be considered a terrorist group.

Compared to, say, China, we are still a democratic paradise; but we are A HELL OF A LOT LESS FREE THAN A DECAD AGO.

And don't forget the 80,000+ people who are currently on the "no-fly list", which means they can't leave the country. And it is enforced.

Like I said: U2Democrat, you GO, girl. You are a brave soul.
