    In this case, since many of the members might be interested, by the reaction of one of the stories posted months back, I chose to do this. For the most part, it's better for everyone to excerpt and link. Note the link and credit given.

    That's some pretty heady stuff, Great post and thanks. Sounds kinda akin to the thread some of us were into last week or so about taking back our country from the politicos and special interests. Thanks Kat!

    Thanks. A few months ago, I posted the article written by the high school kid who stood up for his right to speak. It was awesome.

    I tried to find the link, but no luck, think it got lost with the board changes. Here you can read it though:

    I read the article. im not sure his reasoning is sound. Here is what I see

    New York may lean left. Not disputing that. But the last two mayors have been Republican even if Bloomburg is a Republican in name only.

    Alot of the Dems showing up at the Republican convention are being shipped in from out of state. If they get as crazy as they are promising its going to be the Wellstone memorial all over again. Does anyone really thing out of state Democrats or even in state Democrats are going to get New yorkers to vote for them by rioting in the city of new york or distracting the hard working police force from protecting them? If they do this its going to backfire and backfire big.

    Can't say I disagree with you, yesterday I said this might even be a rope-a-dope situation. I would hope New Yorkers have enough sense to recognize how dangerous this could be. We'll know soon enough. Dang I wish the convention had been during break!
