Code Hypocrisy Visits G-20

The big G-20 summit is gearing up for Thursday and Friday of this week in Pittsburgh and that means usual "peace and justice" groups are getting set to smash windows and push over/burn cars and otherwise commit acts of violence; random citizens might be their first victims but irony is a close second.

...But don't you worry, CodePink is there, too, having won a lawsuit that lets 'em set up an attention-whoring "Tent City" display in a downtown State Park, showing how the big, prosperous nations -- you know, the ones where mothers are least likely to die in childbirth and women aren't forced to cover themselves from head to toe or marry at age six -- hurt women. Curious as to what this excercise in cognitive dissonance might be, I went to their site to look (I can always dip the computer in pure grain alcohol and distilled water* later, right?). Nothing on it but at their "Action Center," the Impeach Bush And Cheney flag is still flyin' high!

Funny, I though we had a new Commander-in-Chief now and the war-for-oil (the one in which we did not, in fact, get any oil), along with the Taliban rooting-out were his wars now. Seeing as how President Obama has not ended these wars yet and doesn't look to be in any hurry to do so, why isn't Code Pink agitating to impeach him?

Oh, right. Wong party. If the Democrats do it, it's okay. --Are there any actual antiwar groups out there any more, ones that aren't one party's toady or shills for worst elements of the the Religion Of Peace, Beheadings and Suicide Bombers? ...Thought not. Right up there with the rock-hurling pacifists.

Meanwhile, back in Pittsburgh, the city has hired/borrowed 4,000 extra LEOs, which roughly quintuples the size of the their police force. Um, not that they think there might be any trouble or anything.

If you're not in Pittsburgh, stock up on popcorn; if you are in Pittsburgh, it might be a good time to get outta town 'til the ijits are all tuckered out. Oh, and don't leave your car downtown.

I'm still pretty well opposed to these here wars we're involved in.

I sure don't seem to have a whole lot of "group", though. :(

Wait! Are you implying that Code Pink is yet another extension of the DNC?

The DNC and its loyalists have never had problems with proper target identification before, have they?

Pffft, everyone knows how women are mistreated in the USA. Why just look at Michelle Obama, we made her work at a sinecure, make her lift heavy weights, wear wierd clothing, and make her work in a garden in the America South.

Shootin' Buddy: Was that job tangentially related to a cosinecure? Let's not get hyperbolic.

Down the road from My Blue Heaven, over by there in Highland, Indiana, anti-war protesters used to set up shop daily by the flag monument to hold placards and stand in silent protest against the war. Ever since Obama landed, the protesters have gone away.

I can respect someone for having a thought-out opposing view to mine, no problem. But once they out themselves like this, they lose me. I used to say when Clinton was in office, the anti-war people didn't see a war they didn't like.
