I think they should change the words,.. can't afford, to don't want to.

"They",.can afford(want) to put all the manpower required, to illegally

stop a legal protest( free country,.ha .. wake up )

"They",. CAN'T Afford (Don't want to give) the manpower, to help

Americans in need .. Like Katrina,.. just one example

"They" can't afford(don't want), to give Americans, a chance at a good life.

"They can afford(want) to spend trillions of dollars, where-ever else they want.

Why do people always bring in God as though that was the end of arguements. Bush claimed that his God had spoken to him and told him to invade, rape and pillage the Holy lands of Iraq. I don't think he heard it right.

Bush's only God is $$$$$$ and power, which he is drunk with right now..Bush should be jailed, not these people. Bush shames this contry as no President in History has.. THAT will be his legacy! The best thing he can do for America and world peace is to apologize and step down.

Viva la Revolution! If "civil disobedience" offenders clog the judicial system and the powers that be continue to violate the Freedom to Assemble as well as Free Speech rights fought for we may as well all be marked like those persecuted during Nazi Germany. Tis a sad day and age for all American citizens who give up these inalienable rights for a false sense of "security". Question EVERYTHING and know Your Rights!

Time to change the government, like the U.S. Declaration of Independence says.

We should impeach Nancy Pelosi for taking impeachemt of Bush/Cheney off the table. A nation of laws, run by lawless men. The end does not justify the means.
There will not ever be a revolution in this country for the American people have not the courage to revolt against the criminals we elected to public office. Since our votes only are applied to the electorates, and who has the most electoral votes; the real answer to solve the mess we're in is NOT TO VOTE until the Electoral College no longer exists. The candidate who gets the most popular votes should be the next president and not a bunch of idiots who are the electorals deciding who should be president. Our votes have never really counted anyway, so why bother? And this includes the maggot bush appointees who sit in the Supreme Court, who handed bush the presidency in 2000 by illegally stopping the Florida recount. And what do we have again? Florida and Michgan. Same crap different day...

Noted thanks Paige

It is another saituation telling us that the times we're living in are run from a place very far away from where it should be, and that the journey to a peaceful, loving and meaningful life is at another of it's hardest peaks, but this time its worst because its faster and insidious. (anyone read Guénon?)
And as always, those who could act fairly do not, because they themselves have a finger on the triggers in Iraq, in a most dishonourable way - they were the knowing messengers of lies.
And yes, there's that also, Scott: when things like this happen in a country where human rights are openly dismissed, everyone is in a hurry to judge, but when it happens elsewhere, they say it's not the same... haha...

The Roar against the War must be loud enough that no one can ignore.

Oh, I see. This is what Homeland Security is intended for.
By God, we can better control civil disobedience
