169. it's all very sweet
that you think anyone cares enough to bother with this protest. It's a nice gesture to do, but a million people before the war didn't make a difference, why do you somehow think that anyone in the administration gives a damn about what you have to say? Why bother making the protest turn violent, they have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

Second, the DC cops, Park Police and, yes, the Secret Service, are the best protest police units in the world. There have been some times in the past few years when they have crossed the line, but never with violence. We have these protests all the time, people come in, trash the city and then move on. You will notice that everyone in DC will simply yawn, and if possible, get out of town, simply to avoid the headaches. But the only violence will be that which you bring with you, and if you bring violence and destruction with you, I'll shoot you myself. :)

Come, assemble peacefully and go home. If you see someone commiting violent acts, TURN THEM IN. If you can't assemble peacefully, stay home and trash your own city.
