Stick this instead

Looking for an answer to all those yellow Support Our Troops ribbons?  Too embarrassed to buy one of those Support Our Poops ones?  Well, here's a nice alternative:  the QuestionWar Ribbon.  Because, you know, you can support the troops and still object to what they are being made to do by corrupt government scumbags certain...

No flight of fancy

The recent story about a woman who was booted off an airplane because of her political T-shirt is no doubt causing waves out there (I've honestly been too busy to check!).  I think it was a bit extreme to throw her off the flight just because she was wearing a shirt that will surely offend...

The Raging Invisible

A group of bluehairs in Tucson (land of my birth) calling themselves the Raging Grannies have been pestering a local recruiting office in an attempt to get shipped off to Iraq.  They're against the war and want to take the place of their children and grandchildren who are currently stationed over there.  It sounds like...

The war on bumperstickers

Thongs of protest

OK, this is one of the cleverest protest actions I've ever seen.  Six guys in Harrisburg, PA got the bright idea to strip down to their undies and form a human pile similar to the one that U.S. soldiers forced Iraqi prisoners to make in those notorious prison abuse photos.  And they did this while...

Keep your grief to yourself.

How sad that interrupting the First Lady (because her husband sent your son off to die in a war based on lies and oil greed) can get you arrested, instead of merely removed from the premises.  And note how they kind of dismiss her as a grief-stricken, incoherent mess instead of someone who has actual...
