Have I got this right? 99.999% or more of Americans are not protesting? Why does it seem otherwise?


Don't we have a whole lot more people in night clubs than protesting? Don't we have a whole lot more people going to worship? And don't we have a whole lot more people serving in our armed forces overseas, by choice? Don't we have about 10,000 times as many in prison? Is the media making it look otherwise?

    What great points Tom. My wife actually subscribed to our local newspaper Sunday edition. The reason was clear. Somehow They donate the fee every month to our child's school for six months. Well it hasn't hooked us to continue. Oh well.

    I really do not think there is any other conclusion we can make. Not a conspiracy just a group think that is without respect for other opinions

    Linda, when I was young I would do crazy outrageous things to impress the girls and get attention. I guess it is a natural concept including politics. Truth be told I never got one girl acting out. Go figure.
