let's hire counter protestors!!
i am not in fl, so i can't protest.

but, let's just hire a bunch of those "sign guys" (the ones who work for fast food restaurants, etc) at minimum wage and have dozens of them go stand and protest all the loonies.

everyone on DU can chip in $5.15 to pay for one hour of protest time (or more if you got it).

suggetions for what their signs should say?

1. I wouldn't want to dirty myself
These people are not only stripping Terri Shiavo's dignity away, they are stripping away every patient in that hospice the right to die in a dignified setting.

2. I agree
At first I was like, Where are the protestors who side with Michael Schiavo? Frankly I am glad a lot aren't showing up. Look who has more class anyhow?

3. The freaks are doing a great job looking like freaks
I like to think we respect Terri Schiavo much more than they do.

4. They are making fools of themselves...Its obscene and predictable...
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 03:13 AM by LaPera

Let them hang themselves...They won't give up, they will only produce more sick, disgusting lies.

Anything, to create bullshit moral smokescreens, control (and donations).

7. Another strategy:
Open up your PaintShop programs and change the signs to reflect what these people are really thinking.

12. The families of those patients dying there do not need further commotion.
I think that your idea is completely insensitive and devoid of any Democratic progressive principle.

Figures!
