    Protests Fizzle During GOP Convention - Yahoo! News

    The three dozen chanting anti-GOP protesters hit a lull of silence as they marched through a low-income neighborhood in west Tampa. "What are you guys doing? Taking a nap?" shouted one protester to his cohorts, exhorting them to yell. Another shouted, "You guys are reeeeaaal quiet now!"

    Quiet is the right word for protests at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week. They have been unexpectedly muted and even the protesters know it. Thousands of demonstrators had been expected but only hundreds arrived, mostly Green Party supporters, Occupy Wall Street activists, anarchists and union stalwarts.

    Only two arrests have been linked to protests so far — one man for carrying a machete, the other for wearing a bandanna in violation of a city ordinance. That's compared to several hundred in St. Paul, Minn., four years ago. Her streets have been so tranquil that Police Chief Jane Castor canceled news conferences because there was no trouble to report.

    :lol:

    I moved away from the Bethlehem/Allentown area and into the coal region.

    Even though the unions run the coal miners, I have not seen;
    An obama sticker
    obama poster
    obama shirt
    Pee Partier gang
    gang signs or graffiti.

    I have seen
    Adds to mine more coal
    nicer people that actually greet you from across the street



    I don't miss the cities at all
