Cindy's arrested, but Tom Delay is given a seat of honor??

Gold Star Families for Peace alert.

GSFP co-founder Cindy Sheehan was arrested last night at the state of the union address. She was invited to attend by Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey. . She was escorted into the chambers by a representative of Congresswoman Barbara Lees office. Cindy had no intention of disrupting the speech. Partly out of respect for Lynn Woolsey . It was released by someone from the capital that Cindy unfurled a banner and was disruptive.

The truth is Cindy was wearing a t-shirt the VFP had made to commemorate the grime milestone of the death of the 2000th soldier in Iraq. The shirt says 2245 dead how many more. Cindy had been wearing this shirt all day and wore it to the SOTU. I was told by a congressional staffer that as far as they were aware there was no dress code guidelines for the guests who sit in the gallery. Cindy was in the gallery.

She was seated at 8:30 pm. It was hot in the building so Cindy unzipped her sweater to remove it. Before she even had it off a capital police officer began shouting “protestor” and hustled her out of the chambers. They were very rough and rude with her. She was given a citation for demonstrating inside the capital building…..after being detained for 3 ½ hours.

This has got to stop. How many of your civil liberties are you willing to give up?
Five'll get you ten the Beltway Battleaxe and the Wall Street Whale will be on her case before nightfall.
Interesting links.. thanks for sharing.
Dear Sande,

I am willing to give up ALL my civil liberties because if I do so, George W. Bush will keep me safe.

Strangely prescient, though we say so ourselves.
Miss World, you crack me up.
Dubyah couldn't keep his gonads safe, using both hands & those of the CIA.
