“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

What if they staged a protest and nobody came?

I just love when these dumb-hippie students stage a protest over something or other and try to recapture the Viet-nam protest hysteria with which their dumb-hippie parents irritated everybody in the sixties....and fail utterly and miserably. Here's a dumb-hippie, former student lamenting the apathy with which the productive class regards their pitiful protest drama...

Three protesters, a half-dozen signs and a missing petition.

"People walk past and say, 'I'm glad you're doing something,' " said Marty O'Malley, a Forest Hills council member who has attended more than 100 anti-Iraq war events, as he stood in front of Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle's Downtown office last week with the small gathering of activists.

"I want to shake them and say, 'Why aren't you doing something!?' "

You'll be shocked, shocked to hear that literally tens of people are showing up for these protest rallies. Here's a short clip of a protest rally held at Harvard to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the war in Iraq. There aren't any people there, only the dumb-hippie students who're skipping class to carry signs around in the snow. Don't watch the whole thing, you can get the point in the first 15 seconds.

Whether we agree or disagree with the war, productive Americans recognize that stupid rallies like this accomplish nothing and their time is better spent earning a living and creating wealth for themselves and thier families. It's still hilarious though!

Ok Ok, I just saw the greatest sign in the world. Education Not Occupation. That is wrong on so many levels.
1. These kids are skipping class! Skipping their Education!

2. People who enlist in the armed forces, may do it for money for education, but their first priority is war, because that is what they signed up for.

3. I also saw a sign saying stop attacks on civil liberties, defend human rights.

Do these kids not know about what Saddam Hussein was doing over there? Have they ever heard of genocide? My god, its like they know nothing about anything. How on earth did they get into Harvard? I guess its not about how smart you anymore, but rather how ignorant to the truth you are.
