    I wouldn’t go so far as to say people don’t care…(that is just asking for intense verbal abuse, possibly prison?)
    more like the whole event is getting old and slimy-the rabid politcals don’t care

    awww…. Sam, you missed all the excitement.

    Barack Obama chose Joe Biden, an old white guy, as his vice president, and stiffed Hillary Clinton’s supporters. Then John McCain selected the moose-hunting governor of Alaska, who happens to be a gorgeous woman, and it turns out her 17-year-old daughter is preggers. The Democratic talking heads throw a fit, and 40 million people watch her acceptance speech on national TV. This is more than watched either Obama or John McCain.

    After that speech, Sarah Palin’s approval ratings are higher than both Obama and John McCain. The Democrats are beside themselves with jealousy, the Republicans are in the mood to party, and the rest of us have noticed that, no matter what, the “glass ceiling” will get broken in this election.

    You just can’t make this stuff up.

    Yeah Sam and you missed out on the arrest of Amy Goodman, America has become the second Egypt, come and visit and be sure you don’t get arrested man 🙂

    Twos, would that be the Amy Goodman that ignored a peace officers request to return to the sidewalk not once, not twice but three times and as the officer tried to escort her back to the sidewalk she broke loose and tried to run past him and the secure police line? That Amy Goodman? The one arrested arrested for interfering with police trying to do their job? Ms. Goodman entered a volatile situation where police were on high alert following violent, destructive acts.
    In an effort to prevent further violence, they drew a line in the sand and said, “Don’t cross this line”. She crossed it. she reaped what she had sown. They had to stand their ground.

    My parents taught me a long long time ago to do what the policeman asks you to do, right away, without back talk. I suppose I’ve got better parents than Amy does!

    Good for the good police in St Paul, professional, courteous and enforcing the law equally. Amy and her producers were released in a few hours, unscathed, unmolested and with all their equipment cameras and little note pads.

    If I were Amy I’d do everything possible to keep my embarrassing behavior out of the news but you know she’ll try to say that the St Paul gestapo tried to silence the press or some similar tripe. Can’t wait to see what her take on it is!! Got any links?

    This youtube video translates to what you wrote tedders? really?

    What part are you confused about, I’ll see if I can help you out.

    First police officer: Hey, sidewalk! Ma’am sidewalk! Sidewalk Now!

    At which point Amy starts struggling with the policeman who is trying to get her away from the police line when she try’s to go around him.

    First police officer: Arresting! (as policeman #1 escorts Amy to be processed)

    Second police officer: Hold right there, she’s under arrest, stay right there, back up, back up. (Take note at this point that the camera man, having had better parents than Amy! does not cross the police line and backs up)

    Third police officer: (decide?) to cross this line you’ll be under arrest, so don’t do it.

    All the while as moonbats in the background are calling the policemen Imperialists and accusing them of violating their constitutional rights!! LOL

    Where, pray tell, does the US Constitution give anyone the right to disobey a police order?
    Please enlighten me as to which article gives citizens the right to ignore a peace officers request or order.

    Amy was arrogant enough to think that she was at Chili’s restaurant and she had the right to complain about the customer service of a wait person. She was in fact in a perceived riot zone as established by the police and in legal terms tried to storm the police line, as a result of her refusal to follow police orders, she was arrested. You won’t see much on the news about this because she committed a crime. Her reasons may have been noble, concern for her producers, but found out soon enough the folly of her actions! “Do not arrest me! Do not arrest me!! (That was my favorite part, personally!!LOL)

    I’ll bet Amy doesn’t make the same mistake again! She was released and spent the night at home or hotel or where ever people like her go at night.

    Moral of the story:Do what the nice police officer asks you to do, the first time he asks. He has a tougher job than you can ever imagine or are willing to do. He is there to secure the publics safety. Disobey and get ready to pay!!

    Here is her laughable take on what happened! Never mentions she disobeyed police orders. Never mentions she violated a police line. Says she was forced to the ground, I didn’t see that on the video. She thinks reporters are immune to the nations laws. they are not, they have to follow the rules too! Moonbats. The producers she refers to will be processed in due time just like all the other rioters.

    I have the police officer telling her to get on the sidewalk four times, not three. Am I wrong.
