12. How about civil disobediance while dressed like an Indian? Our founding fathers were so impolite.
And frankly what do you think sparked that widespread opposition to 'Nam? Naaah, couldn't have been all those protesters that were seen on the news all time, they couldn't have had anything to do with that now, could they? :eyes:

And let's see, how outrageous were those who fought for labor rights? The forty hour work week, overtime, all those fine things that we now enjoy. Were they nice and polite? Hell no, they went out and shot people if they had to, Code Pink is simply exercising their pesky First Amendment rights.

We've tried playing nice, we've tried being polite, and what the hell has it gotten us? The war kicked down the road for six years while hundreds of thousands are dead, a country is destroyed and our own country on the verge of collapsing. Yeah, real progress there, eh?

Frankly if we aren't outrageous this war will last for a long while and destroy all of us in the process. You want to talk outrageous, let's talk the collapse of our country, now that's outrageous.
