    Figure would bring this up, kindof a preemptive strike, be prepared the anarchists are descending on Denver in order to disrupt the Dem convention.. a whole host of extreme views will be advocated for and probably a whole lot of violence.. without regard the question becomes are the Dems responsible for this or are the anarchists responsible?? Have not heard they are invited.. Rage will follow to Minnesota, but not sure if there is a comparable event there..

    Everyone repeat after me... These are anarchists, not the democratic party.. a very simple concept

    Here is the link to one of the ongoing events..

    They even tried to extort them..

    I swear many of these people are lifetime "cause" people. They don't really work, they just find a cause. And whent they get board, they find a new cause. Kinda like those who are lifetime students. Once they get on campus, they never want to venture into to the real world so they become grad students, teaching assistants, doctoral students, continuing education students, university without walls students until they're 50. Ok, ok, some do become professors:D

    I think they are lifetime middle class kids who get by getting high and raising hell.. sound intelligent sometimes, but in reality they have destroyed so many brain cells they have little to offer.

    "Spending $50 million on weaponry to attack people voicing their opinion and flooding the streets with riot police while schools close down, children go without health care and people lose their homes is exactly the problem with the corrupt two-party system we're opposing this August," he said.

    What part of this is false?

    You do realize you have just perfectly described the democrat party.

    Well put. Ever seen PCU? They openly mock these types of people with the "causeheads," the people on campus who pick a new cause every week. Colleges are so weird, because they're little worlds where the impressionable youth read a lot about ideas and such (I'm not claiming indoctrination, though I'm sure it happens in some cases) and get jazzed up about said ideas. And you're right, if they never leave and get any world experience, they're liable to remain seeing the world with the rose-colored glasses (and roses are RED - yes that's a commie joke :) ).

    Harry is right about these people ... I'm glad to be an independant I am not sure how anyone can staunchly defend either party and the loons that are part of them.

    HAHA great point. Talk about irony. The only people I've met that endorse anarchy are teenagers who've listened to the Dead Kennedy's too much. I mean, sure I like less govenrment too, but anarachy is just not feasible. It's like the extreme wing of libertarianism, which is already fairly extreme.

    Haha, hey wistah, I'm not dissing libertarianism. I just don't think anarachy is feasible. And also, I like the Dead Kennedys.

    Too funny, I was in London once, and this kid was selling karl marx shirts to raise money for some soicalist cause. I said to him that "i need the shirt" and he said 4 pounds (yes it was still punds back them) and I said, "Aren't you a Marxists", and he said yes, and I said well I need that shirt, you know to each according to his needs, and he repeated the price, so I said to him, so your saying that Marxist came only be supported by Capitalism?
    He just shrugged.

    Had a DK's t-shirt in the early 80's. Saw them in Tampa in with the Dead Milkmen and Black Flag. They sucked but Black Flag was great. I was the only guy there with a beard.

    I imagine live the DK's aren't great. And their front man was a strange dude to say the least. But Black Flag, that's a big one. I'm not a huge punk fan, but I enjoy those two bands. Very cool.

    Very true Farmy. I know a couple of people in Cali who are all libertarians, and one of them is an open border, zero citizenship, extremist. That sort of libertarianism is totally unrealistic.

    Yeah, it's just nutty. They'd be the first to plead for fairness and justice in their lovely world.

    On Star Trek, that's what really happens...really.
