Protest of the WEEK

We had Monday off, and I guess that that gave lots of energy to the protesters, because there were about 20 of them out there Tuesday morning, and they were singing! Yes, it has been a while since we had musical accompaniment for the weekly protest, but they were singing a mournful tune about the 'SOA' and that it was not needed anymore. Most of the 'signs' were oh-so-creative 8 1/2 by 11 sheets of white paper with something printed on them about the SOA which was basically illegible. For the first time that I can recall, they were all made to stand behind the protest fence, which gave them the opportunity to hang a banner, the continents of which I have since forgotten.

Kathreja and Christine were both there, looking happy, lovely and contented to be holding an eeevill American flag and posters supporting the troops. I wonder what all the granolas think about them. Probably they are bugged to get some of 'their' space and spotlight stolen by those who support murderers and genocidal maniacs in uniform. Oh well.

Today, the old lady was back with her young boyfriend, holding their usual signs. Not much else to report on them...

Society Of Actuaries? Aha, SCHOOL OF THE AMERICAS. Or, actually, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. I think WHISC sounds better, they're really missing out by using SOA. I guess they would have to redesign the SOA Watch website. WHISC Watch sounds like a cooking show.

Yeah, and it is harder to rhyme anything with WHISC. SOA can go with 'go away', 'we don't need it anyway', 'little rummy likes to play', and so many other things. WHISC...hmmm, maybe 'isn't worth the risk'?

There are many possibilities.
WHISC WHISC TISK TISK, WE DON'T NEED TO TAKE THE RISK!
or
"W" "H" "I S C", TRAINS SOLDIERS TA KILL YOU AND ME!
or
WASH OUR FACE, SHAVE OUR HAIR, WHISC WILL BRING THEIR GUNS TO BARE!

They just have to have vision!

Sigh.. some of the newbie moonbats were trying to start shit with us, but eh... it was funny when they were trying to get on both sides of us so that it looked like we were with them... they didn't take too kindly to being told to BACK OFF by either me or the police... hehehe... it was quite funny when one of the petagon cops came over and said "ma'am is he (pointing to the moonbat) bothering you?" for once I was nice and just asked the cop to ask him to keep a few feet between us because apperently me not having a uniform or a gun my request wasn't good enough.

The best part was when some random marine came over (just back from overseas) and gave me a hug... got a couple of thoes that day... *Sigh* one of the benifits... *grin* anyway... The usual moonbats were nice enough it was all the extra dopes that were rude and annoying when the guys and gals would wave at me or say 'thanks for being here" they would respond as if the guys were talking to them... * rolls eyes *

Anyway, my mind is numb.. finally got a job...well part time one anyway...
