I just got back from my second day of protests. There weren't many out today, only about 15 of us. Directly across the street from us were the Bush supporters, 3 guys and a gal.
I thought that everything was going to be cool but then one of the guys on the Bush team raised his fist at our group. I was completely surprised when a couple of guys from our group raised their fists back. Well, this couldn't be ignored by the Bush group, so one of the guys (a really cute one) rolled up his sleeve and showed us his muscle. The guys in our group started taunting him.
I could see that the situation was about to get out of hand. But what to do? Well, I did the only thing that a red blooded American gal can do in this situation, I raised up my skirt and showed everybody some leg.
Every guy in both groups froze and stared at my thighs. After that, every thing was fine again. But the cute Bush supporter did keep giving me puppy eyes. I meant to go over there and introduce myself to the Bush group but never got around to it because God sent a rain shower and all the Bush supporters went home. I guess the Iraqi's aren't worth getting wet for.
However, this did help prove my theory that love or something like it can put an end to the enmity between us.
If you want to get Washington's attention, do it with your vote.
Already tried that TeeJay. That didn't work either.
Thanks for your post.
