2. I'm just glad the artist didn't put a keyboard in his lap
That one might hit too close to home.

10. keyboards are different
that would imply an interaction with others and searching out the news. TV is meant to be absorbed without thinking critically.

11. I'm sorry, but are we reading the same DU boards?
Trust me, people using keyboards is not a sign of critical thinking.

:spray: it can be a sign of BEING critical of everything, I have seen lots of that here....including some of my own posts....from time to time and all.....

you have to admit that reading and returing a comment post involves more thinking than staring at a tv screen .............. :donut:

3. I gave up for now
I was on the streets, I wrote letters, I called congresscritters. A fart in the wind.

4. Exactly. Millions protested around the world. Didn't matter.

5. It mattered
Maybe you didn't see it, but it mattered. It told other people out there that their doubts about the war were shared. It made it impossible to invade Iran, which certainly would have happened if there wasn't a big stink raised about Iraq.

It mattered.

7. It still matters. Every honk we hear on our street corner is also
heard by people who would not have heard those honks if we weren't there with our signs proclaiming the facts about Bush's War and his War Criminals.

things that count for you. We were there for appx. 1 hour during the evening rush hour. I counted 364 honks/waves/peace-signs/head nods or other indications of assent. This was last Spring.
