  •  Another example of wingnut projection. (10+ / 0-)

    They threaten his life more often than they can bear to speak his name, and the last time they held the White House it was fortified like Barad-Dur with Dick Cheney off in some bunker.

    Without a strong safety net and living wage, all labor is forced labor.

    •  They put two guard shacks on top of the WhiteHouse (4+ / 0-)

      and when Bush flew in from National Airport, they came in in 3 helicopters so no one would know which one to shoot down.
      Not too paranoid, much, huh?

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

        preventing anyone from even seeing into the grounds, because it was too dangerous to even eyeball His Majesty or the royal retinue.

          but I did see concrete barricades and steel security gates all over the district, streets blocked off, et cetera.
          One of the funniest scenes of the entire BushCheney era was participating with Medea and Code Pink when Cindy Sheehan got arrested the first time. With the dozen that were going to get arrested, there were several dozen supporters and several hundred protesters filled our side of the fence. A couple hundred cops lined the street and allowed The Pink ladies to stand against the fence and hoot and holler for a few minutes then arrested them. It was very tense, very ritualized, it could have exploded and that had everyone on edge.
          Into the middle of this scene, a bus full of Asian tourists disgorges and we are suddenly swarmed with tourists and their cameras, posing with the protesters, posing with the cops, posing right in front of the arrests!
          SO absurd!
          Then, they suddenly swept back into the bus and off to the next photo-op. And we all get back to protesting and arresting et cetera.
          It was surreal!
