    [b] The funny thing is when I protested Mrs. Clinton her security would come out where I was marching, give me nasty looks and then talk into the little walkie-talkie on their shoulders while staring me down. It was obviously meant to intimidate me but all I did was motivate me to walk closer to them (the Hillary people) and push my sign towards thier direction! [/b][/quote]

    [b] You couldn&#39;t be more wrong. NBC cannot put kiddie porn on TV, we cannot slander people, we cannot yell "fire" in a crowded theater, we cannot make threats against the President, we cannot take a sh*t in public, we cannot display pornographic imiages in a kindergarten class, we cannot grocery shop naked, etc, etc, etc. [/b][/quote]
    You can go to a salad bar naked though.

    Just be mindful of the dressing&#33;&#33; :lol:

    [b] Yeah weeb, we all know that the United States Secret Service is really just a bunch of liberal thugs. <_<

    Give it up, and get to the matter at hand. Who do you want to pork? [/b][/quote]
    [b][i]In the past the Secret Service hasn&#39;t waited for actual law breaking to occur before acting, even in situations that pose little or no threat to the first family and others under their protection.[/i][/b]

    Tell me what about that statement you don&#39;t understand. My posts indicate that the Secret Service has [b]always [/b]gone out of the way to protect the Presidents -- YES even when a democrit is running the show. It&#39;s funny how the Spirit of &#39;76 was alive under Clinton, but not now.

    [u]Political women that I think are attractive are[/u]:
    Jackie Kennedy
    Susan Molinari
    Betsy Ross ? (ex lieutenant gov of NY)
    Mary Bono
    Nancy Pelosi

    If I had to pick just from your list: Laura Bush

    My guess is that you suffer from low self esteem.

    Good luck to you.

    So lets see...

    a couple of hot daughters living in the oval office

    or

    higher taxes,
    militant Islamic airport screeners,
    destruction of every American landmark by terrorists,
    a free Abu Mummia Jamal running for Congress,
    "no legal controlling authority",
    NASA run by the Red Chinese,
    pledge of alliegience to the UN in schools,
    Greenpeace protecting the coasts,
    An Army of One (literally),
    possesion of drugs - legal -- possesion of a combustion engine - illegal,
    Vice President Ramsey Clark and did I mention,
    higher taxes.

    Think I&#39;ll pass, besides then there&#39;d be too many boobs in the Whitehouse.

    PS - where was the Spirit of &#39;76 when Tipper was labelling free artistic expression?

    Not as far as you when GWB raises his right hand and is sworn in for a second term.

    No response about Tipper and the Sprit of &#39;76/free speech issue. Didn&#39;t think you would.

    BTW - Al Gore would make a good president -- President of France&#33;

    I&#39;m sorry I missed it.

    As I recall that was a labeling issue. No one was banning any type of speech. It was just a matter of informing consumers of contents.

    I think Tipper along with the other people who worked with her (I&#39;m pretty sure there were some Republicans with her) performed a good service.

    I agree, it was a good idea.

    Just like it&#39;s a good idea to keep protestors, foaming at the mouth with hatred of the President of the United States, at a safe distance from him.

    Whether that President be Republican George Bush or Democrat Bill Clinton.

    Everybody&#39;s for that&#33; I would never want an American president to be needlessly exposed to physical danger. My goodness no one wants to see a repeat of the tragedy in Dallas.

    However, a citizen with a civil protest sign ought to have equal access to the public areas, and as a result if the president whoever he is views a sign that critizizes him then so be it.

    If any president is so thin skinned that he cannot handle critism (whether it is just or not) then he ought to look for another line of work.

    Spin it whatever way you want. The protestors weren&#39;t stopped from putting on their little show.

    I learned something during 8 dreadful years of Clinton, the more the opposition rants and raves, the more cheap shots they take, the more of a victim they make the president -- the stronger his base becomes and the quicker the moderates pull that little lever for him.

    So, all I can say is keep it going -- be loud and be looney&#33;

    Protesters break through "free speech zone" they should all be arrested as terrorists.

    [url=http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/01/15/elec04.prez.bush.thursday/index.html]http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/01/15/...sday/index.html[/url]

    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- About 400 protesters lined the street across from the King Center in Atlanta as President Bush laid a wreath at the tomb of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to commemorate the 75th birthday of slain civil rights leader Thursday.

    Carrying signs and chanting to rhythms pounded from conga drums, members of the crowd resisted efforts by police to move them to a designated protest area about 150 yards from the reflecting pool in front of the simple white marble crypt.

    King&#39;s widow, Coretta Scott King, walked with the president to her husband&#39;s tomb. After Bush laid the wreath, he stood, head bowed, for about 15 seconds.

    Although King Center officials did not invite Bush to join their planned celebration, Mrs. King met briefly with the president.

    Shortly before Bush&#39;s arrival, a line of city buses parked in front of the center, preventing Bush and the protesters from seeing each other, although the demonstrators&#39; jeers and slogans were not muted.

    Their signs indicated the protesters were drawn from a wide coalition. "War is not the Answer," "Promote Peace, Not Halliburton," "HUD Sponsors Racism," "Impeach the Liar" and "No Blood for Oil" were just a few of them.

    Two people were taken into custody when they attempted to cross the street.

    Isn&#39;t it interesting that the first time Bush decides to visit the King Center in Atlanta is during an election year. Gee I wonder what took him so long?

    I&#39;ve got to give Corretta Scott King credit for the graciousness she showed.

    It&#39;s a good thing that there happened to be a huge Republican fund raiser in Atlanta later that evening. Otherwise, Bush probably would&#39;ve by-passed the whole thing.
