One hundred thousand hippies in DC
    #4708612 - 09/25/05 06:15 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

And not one of them went to hurricane areas to help out. Nice to see them banding together for a non-existant cause instead of going to New Orleans to help save lives. Good job liberals, now we see what you are made from.

You beat me to it, I think that South Park "Die Hippy, Die" summed it up nicely.

I love that episode, especially the part where stan tries to get the hippies to actually do something instead of just talking about it... so true to life...

do you think we would have had the civil rights movement without the hippies?

Considering once their tails were safe and the draft was revoked most of them didn't even show up at the protests anymore.

Comon now...that's the same argument that liberals use against conservatives (eg "If you support Bush so much, why don't you go fight in Iraq?"). It's just as invalid here as there. Not everyone has the time, money, and resources to provide humanitarian aide to people less fortunate. Which is why a lot of liberals donate money, blood, and a day or two to protest to try to get the government to do what they are supposed to do.

Likewise, not all conservatives have the time and resources to join the army and fight a war.

If 10,000 protestors show up in Washington DC, and there is no media coverage, do they make a sound?

How did the civil disobiedence go? I just love the masked vandals wearing black who whine about getting tazered. Poor anarchists :frown:

I guess these protests were world-wide. That sure is interesting.

Was it a general protest against war, or specifically to get out of Iraq? If it is the latter than I guarantee peace will be the last thing they'll see.

of course its a non-existent cause...theres no war in iraq..just ask casey sheehan...and damn all those liberal scumbags for taking in all those hurricane refugees..after all..any self-respecting neocon on mushrooms knows its the victims' own fault that the hurricane..earthquake..etc hit them...

The relief effort in New Orleans is an exclusively non-liberal operation, wow, those liberals really suck.

Is your point that people that are not helping in New Orleans have no right to express there views? Or does protest in some way hurt the people of America?

Or that America must only fix concerned with one thing at a time?

I protested against the war by marching in London the first time route, before we went in. The whole point of a demonstrations is to bring an issue to public attention, the right of peaceful protest is a vital part of democracy.

At the time I at the time I believed we were being sold a crock at time, which turned out to be indeed the case.

I now believe that our presence in Iraq is a big part of the problem, its like a knife in a wound, the wound can not heal with the knife in there, but simply pulling it out will make things worse. Its a mess.

i am for neither party, but I joined the military right before 9/11.. in fact I was in boot camp on the training pad doing march when the planes hit (we didnt find out until at least 1 full week later).

I only recently left the service, but I keep in touch with many of my friends, some in Iraq right now.  Basically, none of them agree with Bush, and none of them think highly of the current state of politics / war.  but at the same time they DO feel they are helping the people, and you have to understand when you are actually there, the entire element of politics is no longer a deciding factor when confronted with actual people and actual situations.

but really I was trying to respond to

Quote:

I promise you, anyone that joins the military will certainly have the time, money AND resources to help.. in fact they pay for everything for you, and they make sure you get your fair share of medical / dental checkups on the regular, and they keep you in shape.

But I am by NO MEANS suggesting that anyone join the military to go fight in a war that I personally think is 100% politics and has nothing to do with our safety (well it doesnt make us safer I
ll say).

but comparing signing up 4+ years of your life to kill people and defend your life (our squad. motto was "Kill people and blow things up") with protesting, or donating cans of food / helping people out..

well the analogy seems to sprout from one without experience with either: military service or selfless help for others.

:cool:

I'm sure you have no way of knowing that not one of those protesters ever helped out in New Orleans.

Have a look at what you're made of.

My friend, I respect you, but please don't try to use personal attacks to prove a political point.

well the analogy seems to sprout from one without experience with either: military service or selfless help for others.

You have no way to know that, and making assumptions is rarely a wise choice.

but comparing signing up 4+ years of your life to kill people and defend your life (our squad. motto was "Kill people and blow things up") with protesting, or donating cans of food / helping people out..


You seem to think this far fetched, but really they are intimately related. Both kinds of people are trying to further a cause. They are just going about it different ways. One way might not be for you, but don't belittle it because you don't understand it.
