hmm, maybe you took that the wrong way.. sorry if that sounded too cynical. i talk, chant, hold signs but have never needed a lawyer.. as a matter of fact i'm usually behind a camera recording free speech in all its glory.
I'd be one of the folks stopping the vandalism if it broke out not encouraging it.

what makes you think i'd need a lawyer?

Mayor asshole Bloomberg won't allow them to march, but you can stand outside the UN and freeze your psuedo-hippy asses off.

The word I get is because Bloomberg doesn't want to pa the NYPD for the overtime it would take to secure the march as opposed to just a standing rally. We have had a bunch of half essed demonstrations here latley (not all concerning Iraq) there are a bunch more scheduled, plus, St Patrick's Day parade is in about a month. This rally was thrown at the city at the last minute and there was no way to budget it in properly.

Bottom line: You can't march cuz bloomberg is too cheap to protect you.

I'm so sick of this stereotype that all people who protest are (or at least dress like) pseudo-hippies or trustafarians. If you were to meet me in person, you'd notice that I actually dress in Old Navy, almost like a normal person. Why don't you come watch the protest on Saturday and see for yourself? Or do you think you're going to be poisoned by the scent of patchouli?

I don't see you doing anything, Blanco.

I almost had to. But, thankfully I won't. Its gonna be colder than a witch's titty.

What the hell is patchouli, anyway? I have heard it refered to a bunch (damn you John Cusack), but never knew what it was. I'm guessing some vegetarian dish.

I got bigger problems.

I'll admit to a certain degree this is true, but I don't think it's representative all protesters.

As Carni has said, if I had to watch everything, I'd be wearing a fig leaf and living in a cave.

It's the official Trustafarian cologne. It's the reason a lot of them smell bad.

Apathy. Ain't it a bitch.

Not canceled. They just can't block off all of 1st ave. They have to stick to the park across the street from the UselessN building.

No. I don't believe in your little cause. Why am I gonna stand in the freezing cold for how many hours?

And, unlike most of these psuedo-hippies I run into, I've got more problems.

The UN security council has collectively decided to postpone any action towards Iraq on account of individual difficulties. As Colin Powell put it: "El Blanco has bigger problems."

Fucking, eh.

Its about time I got the recognition I so rightly deserve. Now, how about some free money and a lot of empty promises that will be forgotten as soon as France and China figure out they can't profit off me?

To my understanding, the National Guard are being called in for the event. What does the NYPD pay for the day have to do with it then...?

Please. These things happen all the time, often with much less premeditation.

I'll be there Saturday. Should be interesting.

Its usually NYPD that handles security for these things. I haven't heard anything about National Guard being used.

Sorry folks.

Unfortunately, I've had to withdraw, but for non-political reasons.

I'm sure this won't be the last protest. I'll protest someday, just Saturday won't be the day.

I see you're still afflicted with Kapn's syndrome. Get over yourself.

Ronnie's just bitter that the rest of the world is seeking alternatives to war. He wants to see his dead people.
