* coming to Northern Colorado... How to make the best of this?

Not much in the way of details, but basically, Bush is rumored to be coming to Greeley, CO to campaign for Marilyn Musgrave and "Both Ways" Bob Beauprez.

For any Secret Service agents that might be reading, no, I will NOT do anything violent to the POTUS or any other VIPs, or anyone else for that matter. I am thinking this is a good opportunity for a non-violent protest...

Of course, the SS will keep me a mile away, but I would like to be as much of a gadfly as possible. I could use some ideas...

2. Avoiding problems... Found a scary thread...

Here I am kicking my own thread again. I don't want to see (or be the target of) a repeat of this, especially since * and co. are having their rally in the same locale...

In October 2004 President Bush came to Greeley in support of M. Musgrave. I was arrested at that rally and charged with "Displaying an offensive sign intended to incite a riot." The sign read "Veteran for Kerry."

A few months later came my first court appearance. The Weld County DA (a former staff lawyer for Dick Cheney during the Iran-Contra Affair) offered me a plea deal of 15 days in jail, which I rejected. My case was set to trial.

I retained Lee Christian, a noted professor of Constitutional Law, and criminal defense lawyer. He filed a motion on my behalf objecting to the arrest based on the fact that I had a first amendment right to protest. Immediately upon receiving this motion, the Weld County DA decided to "review my file." After reviewing my file, the State added the charges of:

1. Disturbing the Peace
2. Obstruction of a Police Officer
3. Harassment (presumably of the republicans at the event.)
4. Resisting arrest
