Are they going to apply for welfare when they get here? All they need is a Chicago ID. They could also have a mighty big family reunion when they get here.

A heads up for an exciting story idea. People from work might, I repeat, might, take a walk around the lake at lunch. You guys might want to dispatch a reporter, just in case.

typical response from the big mouth do nothing right. Get down to Army recruiting and actually do something about this war instead of using your big mouth to help our troops. Our country needs you in Iraq, not here.

Why does such a small group of people get such national attention? It must be a slow news day. I understand someone caught a sunfish in minnesota today. Maybe that is more newsworthy.

Guess what Paulie - I DID.
Wasn't it one of your Democratic heroes who posed the question, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country?"
Why don't you give that a try sometime.

REUP THEN, I am not into war, but then I doubt they would take a 62 year old grandmother. However I did do a 2 year stint in the peace corps from 1976-78 does that count? I do try to put my money where my mouth is, I tutor at Daytons Bluff Elem. take garbage bags on my walks and clean the parks twice a week and deliver meals on wheels every Wednesday. Go to Marion Center to visit and talk with the elderly. As far as war? no way, not this one.

Silly hippies. Unfortunately, they will walk all this way only to be kept a half-mile from the convention and have virtually no chance of speaking to anybody in the GOP that would give a ****.

Meanwhile, back at FOX, they have imposed a near media blackout of this story, despite the involvement of its two biggest stars. I’ve watched enough FOX to know that stories about mass shootings, sensational murders, and missing white children/women are their bread and butter, filling the times when they aren’t attacking Democrats. But as of 9:28pm PT, a search of the foxnews.com website turned up not one story about the shooting. Neither O’Reilly nor Hannity mentioned the shooting on the Monday or Tuesday after the shooting. In contrast, both O’Reilly and Hannity devoted large blocks of their shows to the Virginia Tech shootings, and FOX did stories about it around the clock. But when their books helped provide the justification for politically motivated murder, Hannity and O'Reilly apparently can’t be bothered to address it, or even acknowledge that it happened. O’Reilly and Hannity are quick to blame violence on video games, rap music, liberals, and the decline of American culture, but they are silent when the hatred they explicitly espouse is acted upon. By not covering the story, FOX, O’Reilly and Hannity are not just protecting themselves, but also the violent right wing ideology that created the Frankenstein’s Monster that was let loose on the victims of the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church.

I don't agree with the protesters or any of this anti-war, andi-bush noncense. However I have more respect for these people for exercising their rights in a non-anarcitical way. I wish them luck and hope they don't hook up with and of the left wing wackjobs that are planning to "shut down the RNC"

They could have taken the Megabus from Chicago for a dollar. That's right, the busloads of people arriving in MN get here for $1.00. From what I've seen every bus is full too.

Don't get your panties in a bunch, little guy. It was just a suggestion. Seems taking a walk stories are now trending at the PP. I was just trying to help.

Dispute it. Support the war so much that you would mock the rights of those protesting it? The go fight it yourself, coward.
