    School closure

    in orange county CA
    Mater Dei hi school students were told by the buena park police dept that their school would be closed today. Officials are worried that an anti war protest could turn violent.

    Nice....anti war, but violence is ok to get your point across. Talk about hypocracy. Gives peaceful protesters a bad name (not that I think they should be doing it anyway).

    I admit to being confused by this opposition to protest.

    If this rule that "it is wrong to protest while our young men and women are in an armed conflict" existed would we still be fighting in Viet Nam?

    If it is wrong to protest or speak against a president while we are in an armed conflict couldn't an unscrupulous president simply declare a war, send a bunch of men and women off somewhere and therefore be immune from criticism?

    Be careful what you ask for, you might get it!

    Oh, but all people who are for the war are such righteous, perfect people that they can criticise and throw stones at those who disagree with them, didn't you know that, Sara?

    People, just because people are not for this war does not mean they are pacifists. They are not necessarily against ALL violence or ALL war.

    To be perfectly honest we have been told that assembling in large crowds these days has its risks as it seems that is where a terrorist could inflict some damage. Just think - someone comes to an anti-war rally and blows themself up. Think about the irony of that. I still think the effective part of this battle will be waged and won in the privacy of one's own home on their knees. Just my humble opinion.

    People can go wherever they want to go. That is the freedom we have. I just question the wisdom at this particular time.

    Well then question the wisdom of EVERYONE who chooses not to live in fear. Not just the ones you disagree with.

    At least I had the respect not to bombard your thread with completely unrelated articles and nonsensical comments.

    look, have every right to hammer the president, but get some
    skin, because we have every right to hammer you back, laugh at you, mock you, and generally smile when we read people's posts.

    stand face a corner, talk for about 45 minutes straight.....


    why the attitude????????? you say your prez is unscrupulous and annointed and he swiped the election........well, tell you what, just as you think, and speak, so do we, if you deny us the right to laugh, mock, and generally smile then you aren't allowing us our right to speech.....

    GET A GRIP............and respect other people's right to disagree with you........you stand on the freedom of speech soapbox but when it comes time to hear the opposition you kick and scream
    because it's OUR TURN.....


    be careful of what you ask for, you may get it and not respect or
    value it's meaning.........


    that's the danger of being selfish with personal rights.
