    but there are enough security personal to arrest a small army, which are part of what keeps Bush in his bubble.

    Not sure what you guys have planned as actions, but crossing a perimeter will get you arrested. Refusing to move if you are a in place deemed by the security detail as a location they want you away from.. you will get arrested.

    Not trying to be a downer, or dissuade you, but trying to make it clear so you can prepare yourself.

    cheers,

    •  Don't worry (4.00)
      you can't dissuade me and I'm sure Cindy feels the same way.  

      If we keep on doing what we have always done we will continue to get what we've got.

      It takes courage to make change and we damn sure need change.  If we are in Iraq for another 12 years as Rumsfeld suggested we might be, you can do the math for my 10 year old son.  

      I will stand with Cindy this weekend!

      •  He's not trying to dissuade you. (none)
        I'm sure he supports you, as we all do. He's just saying: Have a plan, and make sure that plan contemplates arrest.

        It's always best to have a plan, anyway. Do you have any arrangements in mind for taking care of your son if they do arrest you? Can anyone help out with that? Be there to take care of the kids, if necessary? I'm sure the community can take care of pizza and motel money for anyone watching them.

        •  His brother will have to take care of him (none)
          if I am arrested but I don't plan to get arrested.  If someone tells me to move I will move and document it with my camera.

          •  OK. (4.00)
            Best of luck!

            How old is the older boy? Make sure he's got some money and the phone numbers of people to call in case they cart you away. Remember, you don't actually have to be doing anything wrong to be hauled off. It could all just be "one big misunderstanding," just like at the convention in New York, where people on their way home with Chinese take-out were swept up along with everyone else.

          •  Perhaps better not to bring children (none)
            It's really hot, and you're in real danger of being arrested.  

            They do not respect your losses and bush  does not want anything to get in the way of his not having to think about the rest of the world (not that he thinks that much about it the rest of the time).

            Plan to be arrested so that it will not be as much of a surprise/hardship on you and your children.  Which it will be if they are traveling with you (even if not right there with you at the ranch).

            •  It is only his future that is at stake. (none)
              Call me irresponsible but I believe in letting my children participate in their lives.

              •  I agree (none)
                we must again teach our children to say NO! to power.
              •  Parents protect children from direct harm (none)
                And this is not a situtation for children.

                Heat, guns, more than likely arrest.  Depending on the crowd, maybe some kind of physical violence.  

                Not good, and will be used against you if anything happens.  The press will do the "what were they thinking, bringing their child into that kind of situation".

                And there will be people who will insist on seeing it as using your children to get media attention.

                Not that you would do that, but I've seen it happen before.

                If anything bad happens, it will be used to distract from what you are trying to do, move the attention from the WH killing our troops.

                •  Thank for your concern (none)
                  but we live in Texas and he plays in the heat all the time.  

                  We have protested together a number of times since Bu$hCo took over and there has never been any violence or danger.  It has been a wonderful experience for him.  He even spoke before a small crowd at one demonstration.  There will be other children there.

                  I am also taking my weenie dog so I guess that's animal cruelity as well as child abuse.
