This was my personal favorite protest sign tonight.
Very clever. It works so well!

Enormous positive energy, a passionately concerned but well mannered crowd of all ages, and excellant and intelligent speakers of all faiths coming together. This was America at its best. Also the signs showed the creativity and intelligence of the crowd. Great photos.

The faith I have in my fellow human beings ebbs and flows. Viewing scenes of this event does help to restore faith in my fellow man.

My thanks to all who demonstrated who represented my own world view so effectively.

Hi Dan Lacey-

LOVE the Ahmadinejad painting with pancake on his head. You made him look just a little bit too cuddly. LOL! Everyone should click on your link and see it.

Great stuff. Thanks for coming by. UI

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
admire terrorist monkeys

ask them to speak at functions
hang on their every word

absurd thought -
God of the Universe claims
there are NO Gay Muslims

no men attracted to men
none dream of little boys

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
monkey clowns to rule

preaching that what I WANT
is to bring back the stone age

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
