D.C. Uncensored.....Protest Pictures and More

Notice the Grandma in the wheelchair in background. (third picture down) Yes folks, it was that important.

Prissy has never seen so many people in her life....and she has been in some big crowds. Amazing, all the thousands of people and yet no serious trouble. The police were polite, some even engaging in a small talk with protestors. Everyone is sick of this war....we outnumbered the pro-war camp 1,000 to one.

A low count of anti-war folks is 200,000. There were nearly 150,000 at the last D.C. anti-war protest, held before the war began. This was a much larger crowd-so 200,000 may even be too low an estimate. There were said to be 200 pro-war people, but we only saw a few. The Washington Post Sunday edition did a decent spread, why Prissy would almost say it was real reporting.

Look at all the havoc a small group of mostly men have caused to the entire world. They must be held accountable. If not, people are going to be leaving the US in droves. Some have already gone. Prissy will be doing more research on that subject to find out just how many Americans have left the country.

Prissy will be returning to D.C. to meet with some so called representatives of the people......

Prissy will return later this evening with much, much more dearest readers... In the mean time take a look at these two. One is news and one is an essay.

News cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/09/26/bush.military/index.html WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush said he wants to make it easier for the military to take charge after a disaster like Hurricane Katrina, but the White House acknowledged Monday the proposal raises "a lot of issues" that need resolution.

"Raises alot of issues?", neoRepublicans? You bet it does.......let's hope you address the issues appropriately THIS time..... carlisle-www.army.mil/usawc/Parameters/1992/dunlap.htm

Excerpt:The letter that follows takes us on a darkly imagined excursion into the future. A military coup has taken place in the United States--the year is 2012--and General Thomas E. T. Brutus, Commander-in-Chief of the Unified Armed Forces of the United States, now occupies the White House as permanent Military Plenipotentiary. His position has been ratified by a national referendum, though scattered disorders still prevail and arrests for acts of sedition are underway. A senior retired officer of the Unified Armed Forces, known here simply as Prisoner 222305759, is one of those arrested, having been convicted by court-martial for opposing the coup. Prior to his execution, he is able to smuggle out of prison a letter to an old War College classmate discussing the "Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012." In it, he argues that the coup was the outgrowth of trends visible as far back as 1992. These trends were the massive diversion of military forces to civilian uses, the monolithic unification of the armed forces, and the insularity of the military community. His letter survives and is here presented verbatim.

It goes without saying (I hope) that the coup scenario above is purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction. -- The Author
