    Boy that didn't take long to get her Diary out, and she says nobody tooolllddd her she couldnt wear this shirt. How the xxxx old is this person(6), even though to me, thats how old most of the Dems act today. As I am going to say from now on," Welcome to the New Democrat Party". And all of America who voted for Bush, because they didn't want someone like Kerry,or Dean or algore, keep on watching. Keep on trucking Dems, we love you. :banana: :beer:

    Dear Friends,

    As most of you have probably heard, I was arrested before the State of the Union Address tonight.

    I am speechless with fury at what happened and with grief over what we have lost in our country.

    CindySheehan's diary :: ::
    There have been lies from the police and distortions by the press. (Shocker) So this is what really happened:

    This afternoon at the People's State of the Union Address in DC where I was joined by Congresspersons Lynn Woolsey and John Conyers, Ann Wright, Malik Rahim and John Cavanagh, (Lets not forget these names!) Lynn brought me a ticket to the State of the Union Address. At that time, I was wearing the shirt that said: 2245 Dead. How many more?

    After the PSOTU press conference, I was having second thoughts about going to the SOTU at the Capitol. I didn't feel comfortable going. I knew George Bush would say things that would hurt me and anger me and I knew that I couldn't disrupt the address because Lynn had given me the ticket and I didn't want to be disruptive out of respect for her. I, in fact, had given the ticket to John Bruhns who is in Iraq Veterans Against the War. However, Lynn's office had already called the media and everyone knew I was going to be there so I sucked it up and went.

    I got the ticket back from John, and I met one of Congresswoman Barbara Lee's staffers in the Longworth Congressional Office building and we went to the Capitol via the undergroud tunnel. I went through security once, then had to use the rest room and went through security again.

    My ticket was in the 5th gallery, front row, fourth seat in. The person who in a few minutes was to arrest me, helped me to my seat.

    I had just sat down and I was warm from climbing 3 flights of stairs back up from the bathroom so I unzipped my jacket. I turned to the right to take my left arm out, when the same officer saw my shirt and yelled; "Protester." He then ran over to me, hauled me out of my seat and roughly (with my hands behind my back) shoved me up the stairs. I said something like "I'm going, do you have to be so rough?" By the way, his name is Mike Weight.

    The officer ran with me to the elevators yelling at everyone to move out of the way. When we got to the elevators, he cuffed me and took me outside to await a squad car. On the way out, someone behind me said, "That's Cindy Sheehan." At which point the officer who arrested me said: "Take these steps slowly." I said, "You didn't care about being careful when you were dragging me up the other steps." He said, "That's because you were protesting." Wow, I get hauled out of the People's House because I was, "Protesting."

    I was never told that I couldn't wear that shirt into the Congress. I was never asked to take it off or zip my jacket back up. If I had been asked to do any of those things...I would have, and written about the suppression of my freedom of speech later.(liar, liar pants on fire, isnt that what a six yr old would say) I was immediately, and roughly (I have the bruises and muscle spasms to prove it) hauled off and arrested for "unlawful conduct."

    After I had my personal items inventoried and my fingers printed, a nice Sgt. came in and looked at my shirt and said, "2245, huh? I just got back from there."

    I told him that my son died there. That's when the enormity of my loss hit me. I have lost my son. I have lost my First Amendment rights. I have lost the country that I love. Where did America go? I started crying in pain.

    What did Casey die for? What did the 2244 other brave young Americans die for? What are tens of thousands of them over there in harm's way for still? For this? I can't even wear a shrit that has the number of troops on it that George Bush and his arrogant and ignorant policies are responsible for killing.

    I wore the shirt to make a statement. The press knew I was going to be there and I thought every once in awhile they would show me and I would have the shirt on. I did not wear it to be disruptive, or I would have unzipped my jacket during George's speech. If I had any idea what happens to people who wear shirts that make the neocons uncomfortable that I would be arrested...maybe I would have, but I didn't.

    There have already been many wild stories out there.

    I have some lawyers looking into filing a First Amendment lawsuit against the government for what happened tonight. I will file it. It is time to take our freedoms and our country back.

    I don't want to live in a country that prohibits any person, whether he/she has paid the ulitmate price for that country, from wearing, saying, writing, or telephoning any negative statements about the government. That's why I am going to take my freedoms and liberties back. That's why I am not going to let Bushco take anything else away from me...or you.

    I am so appreciative of the couple of hundred of protesters who came to the jail while I was locked up to show their support....we have so much potential for good...there is so much good in so many people.

    Four hours and 2 jails after I was arrested, I was let out. Again, I am so upset and sore it is hard to think straight.

    Keep up the struggle...I promise you I will too.

    Love and peace soon,
    Cindy

    If this woman was any more shallow she would be a mountain. It is obvious she loves the media attention.

    She thinks being arrested for wearing a t-shirt is bad; I would have arrested her for treason long ago and charged her with giving aid and comfort to the enemy,being a co-conspirator in the death of US soldiers, and plotting terrorist acts. Unfortunately, it is not against the law to be a dumbass so she gets away with that.

    Is it wrong for me to wish her son were alive and she were dead?

    If she is so speechless with fury, then why the thoughtless 1000 word, "in my romance novel where hugo my latin hunk will save me from tyranny," diatribe?

    i dunno, but even her husband (soon to be ex) couldn't stand her. He filed for divorce not too long ago. But of course, it wasn't widely pubicized.

    He was tired of her crap too.

    She is the ultimate proof that if you have the financial support, you can be as wacky as possible and get nauseating media attention.

    aww cmon...she's no the first. The Clintons did it, Hillary is still doing it, Pelosi does it, Kerry and Gore did it and so did Dean. Even that whacky college professor Churchill did it! Ted Kennedy does it all the time. Dont be so hard on Cindy...she is just trying to fit in.
