Apparently, according to the Albuquerque Journal, at least one city police officer thinks it is within his realm of authority to tell someone to 'shave their armpits.' I wonder if that officer has shaved his armpits. I wonder if the rest of the horse mounted officers really found it necessary to ride their hay burners down a sidewalk to force Iraq war protesters into the street. I think maybe Mayor Marty Chavez better get some constitutional training for the officer in charge of Saturday's police detail outside of Kirtland Air Force Base where a couple of hundred people showed up to hold signs condemning the war and its perpetrators.
Having said that, I would now like to take to task the leaders of the protest for stupidly doing this at a military base gate. You can't rally support by doing it there You are wasting time.. You hurt yourselves and chances of acheiving your goal. You should be protesting it in front of Pete Domenici's office, Heather Wilson's office and Steve Pearce's office. They voted for this war for their idol, george bush, and they are the ones who are responsible. Just like the democrats who did the same thing.
Don't come after the men and women who are following orders as they are supposed to. Let me make it clear. I am against this war completely. From its inception in bush's macho brain to the current day. But aiming protests at the military is highly inefficient. They are not the ones who can end this disaster, only our elected officials can. That is something that MoveOn.org will find out from my wallet. No more money for them from me after stupidly saying Petraeus is a traitor. Petraeus deserves heavy criticism and some disgrace, but calling him a traitor is not valid or believeable.
