John McCain’s decision to cancel all but necessary ceremonies at the Republican convention this week drew respectful notice from both parties . It was, simply put, the right thing to do. McCain knows that there are more important things going on in the country than his own glorification.
So how come the protesters gathered in the Twin Cities did not get the message? Hurricanes in our Gulf coast or not, they’re determined to march, make noise, get themselves arrested, and generally call attention to their various complaints. They are destroying property, disturbing people, acting like pure asses with no respect for anyone or anything. Because in my opinion they are self serving. It amazes me at the maturity level they are blessed with not to mention the way they display a perfect example of keeping peace. Isn't their message all about stop the war, keep the peace?
Would not their efforts be put to better use if, for example, they called off their protests, and tried to do some good for the victims of the hurricane? Their favorite thing to yell at the media is "the blood is on your hands" and then flip off the camera's. Boy, that makes everyone want to support their cause.
