Cindy Sheehan Union Square Park

Cindy Sheehan is in New York City this weekend and kicked off the nationwide launch of 'Orange Fridays' in Union Square Park this evening. According to the flyer, "The urgent color of orange -- the color that has been assigned to those detained and tortured with no due process -- must become the color of a gathering sentiment to end the Bush regime and reverse it's program." The first speaker suggested that not only should everyone wear orange on Fridays, but to wear it every single day. After a few songs, speeches and poetry I left, but not before taking a few pictures. <--- click for slide show!

Somebody wants to have a Million Slacker March. I kid you not. I didn't ask when this would take place. Would it have even mattered? He said that the 'slacker movement' would help stop the war because 'slackers don't become soldiers and go to war.'


Is Cindy running for Congress on the Troofer ticket?
They were out in force today.

I think they might have found the perfect spokesman.

Umm... Did you ask the moonbat with the "cultural revolution" sign if he approved of Mao's murder of some 77 million Chinese in the last cultural revolution?

"The first speaker suggested that not only should everyone wear orange on Fridays, but to wear it every single day."

And this would accomplish . . . what, exactly?

Oh, wait -- I get it now! It's the Underpants Gnomes approach to regime change:

1. Wear orange every day
2. ?
3. Impeachment!

Pat,
Wearing orange everyday will cause world peace to instantly and irrevocably break out while pink-nosed bunnies eating cotton candy will hop over rainbows.

Orange is also the color of the Great Pumpkin! She has committed blasphemy!

Damn! Wish I had known about this. Such a freak show, and only five blocks from my home. I could have had such an entertaining Friday. Instead, I just went to work.

I wonder if the person with the "million slacker march" was somebody who was making fun of the moonbats. Rush has featured some people who carry various signs that, on the surface sound moonbat, so the moonbats (who usually couldn't think their way out of a paper bag) nod in agreement while in reality they are being mocked. Just the overall tone: Demand a caretaker government, social welfare, and thanks to those who do what we won't all seem more parody than serious.

At least I hope that's true

Hate to dash your hopes, Anonymous, but the Slacker Movement guy was completely serious.

Wow, the slacker guy was really serious? We are in worse shape than I ever imagined. How could anybody read that sign and not burst out laughing? As comedy, it's great. As serious political commentary it is beyond frightening that anyone could even hold those views and still have the required brain activity to remember to breathe.

UI, you've outdone yourself with your commentary! I'd say more, but I have to clean up my keyboard from spitting out my coffee laughing. You are the best! Thanks for an early morning laugh. The rest of the day will now go swimmingly. You know, as if I was wearing orange every day.

Don't even try talking sense to the moonbats. It is like talking to a wall; I know, I have tried.

This event actually took place in 1966, right? All the photos have been altered to include current names, etc., correct? Surely all those people are the same hippies I grew up with and their main issue is hatred for authority, regardless of who the authority is. Marijuana is a wonderful thing, eh? What percentage of this crowd was from Vermont? When is Vermont going to secede? They have my vote!

So you took a picture of Cindy Sheehan and you didn't smack her in the face with your camera afterwards?

I know that sounded horrible, but...you really didn't hit her with your camera?????

I am not a pugalist...but what an opportunity that presented.

Did you at least say something rude to her?

C'mon Cindy, if I shoot my wad between your sagging jumblies, will you catch it in our mouth?

Christ, you have no firm muscle in your whole body do you?

What a skank. How many 60's throwbacks have been in that?

These moonbats must have scored some prime weed before this protest.

Yet again, UI, you have captured the essence of the day through your photography.

Bravo!

Can't the justice dept. oblige these people and set them up to have orange jumpsuits (maybe even straight jackets) every day - maybe in Gitmo???

I understand it has been suggested that the 'Slacker Movement' is a joke.

Let me please assure you good folks, that I spoke to the guy with the sign myself and HE WASN'T kidding.

I wear orange everyday, on my paid job with the highway department. If the people in Cindy's demonstration like orange so much then they too can get a full job wearing orange, with the highway department, that is, if they don't mind working for a living.

At a recent family reunion, I ran into an in-law who swallows the hogwash about GWB's having engineered 9/11. This in-law is an otherwise intelligent person, so I couldn't believe my ears!

I have her an earful, you might know. She had to pick her jaw up off the floor, but I suspect that later she pooh-poohed everything I had told her.

There is no hope for some people. It's got to be BRAIN DAMAGE!
