The Red, White & Black.

"We are losing our best and our brightest in a country that we are destroying that was no threat to the United States of America. Iraq was and still is no danger to our safety and security, or to our way of life. The weapons of mass destruction and mass deception reside in this town: they are the neocons who pull the strings and the members of Congress who have loosened the purse strings with reckless abandon and have practically given George and company a blank check to run our country into monetary and moral bankruptcy. We are out here in force today to take our country back and restore true democracy and sanity to our political process. The time is now and we are here because we love our country and we won't let the reckless maniacs destroy her any further."

"George, this is our rainy day and you have failed us miserably."

300,00 + people marched in the streets of Washington that Saturday. It was completely insane I will send you pictures and stuff later, but for now I have got to get some sleep.

I meant 300,000+ people. I apologise.

That's rad. I was worried, because it barely got any news coverage (Rita). I had hoped that it would be huge.

I'm glad that you're all home safe and sound, and I look forward to the photos and whatnot. Nice to hear from you again, too.
 
I'll post some stuff about our trip on my page tomorrow, assuming that I remember to bring the pictures.
 
Cindy Sheehan getting arrested isn't even on the Yahoo! mainpage. That's weird.
 
It seems like there's not much coverage of the protest at all. You'd think a couple hundred thousand people on the streets of the nation's capital would be news, but I guess not. The media lets you know what they want you to know...
 
Correct. Hurricane Rita was the best thing to happen to the White House right now. It blew the war, the protests, basically everything right off the front page.

Instead of embracing the chance to look like professionals again, they also managed to screw up the relief efforts, too. Way to go.
 
I don't blame them for not putting it on the front page, though. Cindy Sheehan is really sort of old hat at this point.

Sorry, just wanted to say "old hat."
 
I think maybe protests haven't been deemed that newsworthy in the last decade or two. There's been a few I've been interested in and then everyone involved complains about how they're getting blocked out or under-represented in the major media. Looking back, I don't think most protests get much front page press unless it turns violent or something.

I wonder if this is why people on both sides of the political divide feel like the press is biased the other way. Maybe major media just does a crappy job of covering everything.
 
That's something we can all agree on. Protests don't get attention unless they go wrong. People take notice, but the media has better things to do.

Perhaps there have been so many protests recently, they have become the ignored background noise of politics.

We should arrange a protest to protest the ignoring of protests.
 
Better yet, a protest to protest the ignoring of the ignoring of protests.
 
I just peed my pants.
 
Woo! Number one! Woo hoo!

Sorry.
 
Thanks to urine, we have come full circle.
 
This is a joyful place.
 
I was telling Ben and Aaron that we should storm the White House! 300,000 people could've destroyed the whole capital if they wanted to!
 
Of course 150,000 thousand of those people would be trampled and killed by the sudden onslaught of movement, but what's a couple thousand more dead in the eyes of the White House?
 
No kidding. I think, however, that a mutiny on Pennsylvania Avenue would really hurt the perception of liberals in the media.

Sadly, Dubya was nowhere near Washington DC when the protest went down. You would have just killed tender, cute interns.
 
Won't somebody PLEASE think of the interns???

George Bush's response was "I understand people have different opinions on the war." That's all he said. Again..."old hat."
 
I would like to challenge that man to a duel.

That's about the most honest thing I've ever said on this page. I'm totally serious.
 
I'd like to punch that man right in the face. The closest I got was flipping off the White House and yelling "Impeach Bush! Impeach Bush!". I knew that he wasn't there; it just felt really, really good.
 
Impeach Bush! Impeach Bush!

It DOES feel good!
 
Impeach Peaches!!!

Now just think about THAT for a while.
 
We had been blogging trying to find how our world sees console game. It has been a lifeline for us. Your site provides some of the best examples of this sort and we will bookmark yours. Another one we found was and appears to be related to yours is console game site/blog. It pretty much covers console game related stuff.
 
I love console games.
