    Clinton came to visit the preschool my SIL works at, the SS, LAPD and other law agencies heavily screened the people that work there.

    The gen public who get tickets or are part of the audience have a cursory screening done as part of their admission to the event. There is no way to possibly screen out people who are there to disrupt an event.

    Barring goofballs who are dressed in pink- the Code Pink buffons and searching people for hidden signs, shirts with anti war slogans or an idea that they are going to disrupt or try to shout down any one making a speech is patently un-American - and does infringe on their right of free speech, But I think asking them to be respectful to others that are part or being honored at a ceremony or graduation is a matter of common sense.

    There is a certain lack of respect for decorum for their fellow man - some protestors think they are entitled to wrecking the day for the rest of us...It's not a right, it's a show of ignorance.
    If I went to an antiwar demostration and began to shout down a speaker I can guarantee you that some 'peaceniks' would have no problem kicking the shiat outta me-the same people who profess to believe in the "Love, Not War" attitude.

    I am not a religious person, but would never think of crashing a Sunday mass because I think that abortion is O.K. or I agree with same sex marriages.

    In San Francisco a church service was crashed by some knuckleheads dressed as nuns because of some stupid religious rule.

    I am more apt to listen to an opinion or cause when it's presented in a way that doesn't verge on hysteria or ruin any meeting, ceremony or gathering.

    More often than not people look, point and laugh at who these people are.

    -------------

    Check out the news programs. I'll give you the standard report.

    "Protestors were escorted from the citizenship ceremony that GWB spoke at today."

    Nothing about their stand, exactly what they were protesting about or what their views are/were.

    It had all the impact of passing gas in a crowd.

    Some people noticed, some wrinkled their noses and some just ignored the whole incident- and in the end, the smell faded into thin air.

    Obama's plane had to make an unscheduled landing today when the pilot
    reported problems with manuvering (sp) the plane. It landed ok.


    I've been watching McCain lately & he honestly looks older every time
    I see the guy. He reminds me of a wind up toy the way he walks around
    the stage.

    I agree Liz. From what I understand, through reports in the media, he is not very agile due to the injuries he suffered in Viet Nam. I heard that his collar bone and some other bones were broken and he can't lift his arms over his head. That might explain the stiffness.

    Yes, I am aware of his war injuries but it's more the way he takes small
    steps & is constantly in motion the whole time he's talking.
    It's very distracting from his message.

    I'd shake too if I was being 'interviewed' for that job!

    Here's a good one.

    Pet owners were polled and 42% are in favor of JM for pres, as opposed to 27% for BO.

    Does anyone know what kind of pets, if any, either of them has?

    I believe McCain has a bunch of pets and Obama has none...I don't really judge Obama on that, in his position how could he care for them or spend any time with them anyway. I think all presidents have to get a dog though so that will change soon
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    I have been frosted!

    Thanks Kfamr for the signature!

    The McCains have dogs, parakeets, ferrets, fish and a cat...oh, and turtles!

    --------------

    DUDE!

    I just saw Bill Clinton talking about JM and saying that if he were pres, there was the chance that he'd have flashbacks about his being a P.O.W. I guess he was implying that JM wasn't fit to be elected.


    Clinton looked really tired and I think he was having flashbacks from his time as a P.O.W....

    I would imagine that neither candidate has much time to spend at home with pets these days. I do hope that Obama will become a pet owner at some point. His little girls would sure benefit.

    Richard I can't believe Clinton said that. I wonder if he has Monica flashbacks!

    The Obama children have been promised a dog no matter the outcome of the campaign.

    Ya think?

    I almost made a comment about this yesterday.

    First, He opens the kids up to being critiqued, I liked the comment the older one made about decorating her room in the White House should dad win. Do we have to foot that bill?

    Second was the hammering BO took about his clothes (LOL, I am not the only one who thinks of the saying "clothes make the man") and his leaving his bags on the floor.

    I think that he took more personal hits from his own family than he does from the press-kinda like going to a family reunion and having all your foibles exposed in front of everyone.

    HE didn't come off as 'presidential' as he wants us to think-I had a friend who lived in the same kind of household, three woman and one man-the dinner invites to me stopped as the kids got older-during the table conversations they'd kid dad about his house habits and I could tell that it bothered him.

    Guys with dreams of 'big offices' don't want people to see what their weaknesses are-BO is a good example of that.

    The consultant who suggested the interview is probably looking for a new gig right about now.

    -------
    I wonder when we'll get to meet JM's family?

    Yep, the new first family get to decorate the White House the way they want. Every first lady gets new dinnerware and silverware and everything else they want. I'm sure the first kids get to do their thing too!!!
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    Jessie Jackson is apologing all over the place for crude comments about
    BO that were overheard in an open mike at a political gathering. I wish he
    would just disappear from public view for a long, long time. What the heck
    does he do for a living anyway?

    JJ collects money from unions to speak at events.

    JJ and Al Sharptongue have been very silent in the previous months. I think that they have a little of the 'presumptive envy' because BO was able to do something that they tried and were unsuccessful.

    It's a guy thing-they are ticked off and have no intention of playing second fiddle. Some of the 'luster' that they had hoped for in their pres campaigns was stolen by this rookie senator with little political experience, compared to their media/BS/political savvy.

    JJ said what he felt and his apology was pretty weird.....He starts to list 50 years of civil rights dates, marches and laws.

    What does that have to do with crumbing on someone you don't see eye to eye with?

    -----------------------------------

    LOL, Poor BO.

    He went on the Today Show with his tail tucked-HE's so caclulated with his campaign and he slips up by going on a dopey entertainment show. The kids said nothing that would hurt his run for office.

    It's his bloated ego and desire to be "the man".

    Sorry Chucky, you messed that one up.
