Gawd, my house is a mess.

And why, you ask? I'll tell you why! I'm a busy woman - that's why!

Here's how our wonderful counter-protest in Philly went. Lot's of American flags on our side - one on the lefty's side. Lefty's lying down in the grass screaming about body bags, us standing tall screaming about mass graves, toddler prisons, raped women, throw 'em off the building with hands tied treatment, mass graves/mass graves/mass graves. Why aren't the MASS GRAVES important to them?

A very nice Quaker young man came and talked to me very reasonably. Of course we know that Quakers are pacifists (hence laying down on the ground all of the time...) but he was as pleasant as can be and we talked for a good 15 minutes. God bless him - he is a nice man. We both agreed that part of what makes America great is the fact that we were both there. It was a love-fest.

I spoke at length with Skye, another Philly blogger and will be adding her to my favorite blogs! An old man came up to us (maybe 95 y/old) and asked us if we thought Bush would win re-election. Skye told him that he had won. He touched my youngest daughters arm lightly and walked away. As he was walking away we noticed that his pants were on backward - yep! Fly running right up his ass. Hands in his back pockets in the front. Poor old soul - we asked each other, 'Where is that man's family?'

The girlies saw the Liberty Bell with Papa Bear while I watched the cooler with snacks and held 3 flags and a sign. They informed me that he didn't set off the metal detecter even once. Good for Papa.

We bought a T-shirt that has Che Guevera's image on it. It says:
'Che Mart - we smell for less. Socialists. MURDERING COMMUNIST BASTARD.' As we were leaving a woman horse and buggy driver saw the picture of Che's face on Troll's chest and cried out in delight, 'Che Guevera!' He stopped so that she could read it. Her face fell. Her face became angry. She said, 'So are you pro-war?' I answered, 'We are pro-America!!' and walked away. THAT shut her up! LOL! Stupid woman. Who in their right mind would worship fragging CHE GUEVERA??!! Only stupid people.

Peter Manfra is doing a fine job leading our little band of rag-tag America lovers bearing our 'Missiles of Truth.' Thanks Pete and thanks to all the Protest Warriors who traveled from Baltimore, New Jersey and New York. God Bless Us All.

And the girlies were very good and loved their first counter-protest.

Loved the pix of you, the girlies, and CT. But hardly any moonbats in the pictures! It's nice to see the good guys (i.e. PW crowd), but we want to gawk at the loonies, too. :)

LOL! Abe! You're right there weren't ANY pics of the looneys on my camera. However our fearless leader Peter got LOTS of pics of the looneys. The looneys actually behaved themselves surprisingly.

The funniest part was when they all lay down on the grass. They looked ridiculous.

When the pics are up at the Philly PW blog I'll shoot you an email and let you know.

Thanks and I'm glad you liked the picks of the SLOTH. :-)

The thing about lefties is that they are very happy to lie down and be walked over! I recognise the location! Great pics Monica!

I was in Cuba a year and a half ago and pictures of Che Guevara are everywhere. What does that tell you?

Blogger MonicaR said...

DV - that's what we were saying about the pacifists. They'll just lay right down and let everyone else do the necessary fighting.

Jana - it tells me that people are incredibly stupid. Many a Cuban refugee will tell them the same thing. How did you get the opportunity to go to Cuba?

It was a great pleasure to meet you and your family this past Sunday at the PW gathering!

Great summary of the day, I hope to post my views of Sunday event sometime tonight.

Answer - I was in Cuba on a missions trip. It was all legal, per State Dept. regulations. We took over a ton of books and supplies to church workers there. It was amazing, but also very sad.

Wow Jana - that is interesting. Is what I've heard about Cuba true? Does it look old and crumbling with poverty galore? What do the Cubans stuck there think of their aging Communist Dictator?

Poor bastards. Always trying to escape in those old Chevys converted to boats. What a trip.

Hopefully the old Commie will die soon and they can get a better life.

"Why aren't the MASS GRAVES important to them?"

Well, there are mass graves in lots of countries. Iraq fought a long war against Iran, and most of the mass graves are casualties of that war. Should the US attack every country that has mass graves? Patriotism doesn't mean unconditionally supporting what the government does. If our founding fathers had done that, this country wouldn't even exist. I'm not going into detail about the pros and cons of the war here, but suffice it to say that patriotism means more than waving a flag and egging our leader on to do whatever he pleases.

You're obviously aware of that, since you've criticized him on immigration and on other issues. From my observations, I believe that the vast majority of Republicans never seriously debated or questioned the validity or necessity of this war. And that angers me because THAT is unpatriotic. We do not live in a dictatorship, so we must evaluate the actions of our government every step of the way. We can wave flags, but we'd better damn well be sure we're paying attention to what our government is doing while we're waving them.

p.s. We'll never get anywhere in this country if both sides just keep calling the other side "loonies" instead of really thinking about the issues. (That's for abe and others leaving comments.)

Anonymous - just because I support the President in going to war to liberate Iraq doesn't mean that my position was not well thought out or my decision blindly made.

I disagree that there was no debate before making the commitment to Iraq. Christ Almighty - the frigging DEBATE raged for a year or more before it was done. It was debated to DEATH. How quickly you forget!

I also disagree that the mass graves in Iraq were solely the result of the Iran/Iraq war. If you have documentation to prove your contention - let's see it! Otherwise you are making bullshit statements simply because it is convenient to your position.

Please don't forget something very important Anonymous - that is: The Bush Doctrine has changed the way American deals with 'problem' countries. I happen to agree with the Bush Doctrine. The way that America dealt with these countries pre-9/11 was obviously not in our best interest.

As to calling each other loonies it is harmless. Truly you have to observe that there are factions on both sides that ARE loony.

So - even though you've pissed me off to no end - I'm glad you came to visit and I extend my warmest welcome to you!

Anonymous - you need to read this. It's important for you to understand how the Iraqi view this horrible war in their land.

Thank you Abe for bringing this to our attention.

DAMN! I am so upset that I couldn't go to this --I could have met you and Skye... LOVE Papa Bear's shirt!

Next one... I promise!!!

I'll just point out that I never said that all the protesters were loonies.

Ala - I would have loved to have met you. Next one.

Abe - I know you didn't say that. Anonymous was just spouting out the lefty talking points without thinking about actually applying them to any specific situation. Atleast that's the way I see it.

Love that sign:

"Drill ANWR, Caribou (heart symbol) it, Terrorists Hate It"

What a good bumper sticker that would make..

Too bad Sudan doesn't have enough oil to pay for freedom.

You don't know about the Sudanese oil? My dear - you must get up to date on it.

It's the damn truth. Look it up baby.
