Tuesday, March 18, 2008. An Associated Press-MTV poll of students across the country finds one fifth say they're unhappy and twice that say they're under frequent stress, with many saying it gets so bad that they sometimes lack motivation or energy to work, have trouble concentrating and have sleep problems.

A monument moves down the line at Granite Industries of Vermont in Barre, Vt., Thursday, Dec. 20, 2007, that will stand among the perfect rows of the rolling hillsides of Arlington National Cemetery. By far, most of the 2,000 to 3,000 stones carved each month by the workers from Granite Industries of Vermont belong to veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam or are replacement markers that can go back to the Civil War or the American Revolution. But with a saddening regularity, the names appear of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere since the 2001 attacks on the United States ushered in a new era of war.

I know it is just labeling but who would want to be pro death and destruction??? Doesn't that mean that you necessarily have something terribly wrong with you?

Washington seem to be a very effective way of protesting. They are getting the attention they need and making it miserable for the government at the same time.

21. I just ran across a group of them
Its raining her now, they were supposed to have another protest at 5, but it got called due to rain. The group was on their way home.

I did get to tell them that their pics were up on DU and on the internet. That made their day.

24. Great to hear. I was going to go, but just not able.
I needed sleep, my joints hurt, and I have class in the morning. It would have been a five hour drive up and back for me.

It will be raining here, soon, too. (NC)

56. the world is still wondering why this jerk is in for a second term.
and why Americans by the millions are not in the streets, in Europe they have whole different mindset, we never had a war on our own soil since the Civil War, maybe it will come to that again, cause it is said Sometimes the tree of liberty needs the blood of patriots and tyrants.

44. the cops used tear gas in the part of the city I was in today -- 15th & K
and it sure seemed like there was at least one cop for every protester. But the demo was a beautiful sight.

52. These are true Patriots and Americans.
These are the ones fighting for our freedom and our Republic. Yes, I support the troops. I used to be one in the '70's, after Vietnam.

But these Americans, standing before our government and airing their grievances are the ones who understand the fragility of our Constitution and the very real deterioration of it's first sentence:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
