    If only honking for peace was working, since it’s clearly not, maybe we should all click our heels.

    Yep, I would really like to hear about the police arresting someone besides teenagers. Maybe if they could catch the drug dealers, they would not have so many youths to arrest.

    I miss the late 60’s and early 70’s when we had huge crowds at war protests! Seems nobody seems to care anynore!

  4. The Trolls Troll

    Nobody seems to care anymore because W is no longer in the White House. It seems that once Obama took over, the number of protest declined dramatically. Guess war is okay now.

    I did not see many protests while W was in the White House … and he started the current wars!

    You mean years into a war people were being actively drafted for? At a time when the economy was so good that an entire generation could spend their time protesting because they didn’t have to work three job?

    Also, there have been some VERY large anti-war protests since the invasion of Iraq. I’m thinking you just haven’t paid attention. There have even been some protests of notable size against the UN/NATO Libya ‘exercise’.

    Maybe get your news from somewhere other than cable teevee.
