  •  I'm a vet, and the trash with microphones at that (4+ / 0-)

    demonstration does NOT represent me. Nor do the yahoos and morons who tore down the barricades.

    Trash. And scum.

      Not just as you put it but the total lack of understanding who actually shutdown and then caused the law to be enforced by placing barriers to memorials and allowing that mindset to actually speak on mics to the crowd, who then turn and try and walk that back as that isn't what they represent.

      You have a rally you had better pick your speakers, especially in front of mics or a bank of, speaking the message you intend. And most certainly don't scream at, in this case, law enforcement that is working but not getting paid while your speakers are the reason for that, while also waving a reb flag, and if a veteran you didn't fight under, that the symbol of is well known.

      On that flag, they're now saying it was a lib plant, which apparently everyone with the flag waver and those all around them were also libs, i.e. thus blame Obama!!
