More on San Diego
Hi all. Eric and I arrived home just a bit ago. I really enjoyed meeting some great people in "the flesh" after knowing them via cyberspace and that includes Smash himself. I've gotten some requests about my pictures. Please feel free to copy and pass around. I just hope y'all would kindly credit me. Ok? Ok! I've gotten lots of requests for a closer up from Finger Female ... I was resizing for quick upload from Really.Big.Pics. So I went back to the raw image and cropped just her without resizing.
I captured Her Gloriness just as she was lunging at our line of "USA USA" chanting patriots. But a really great frontal shot was had by Larry and is posted at Smash's place here. Smash is also starting to publish some of the transcripts of the "speeches" done at MoonbatTown where some of our number had blended into the attendees to capture it. Word was that the speeches this year were fairly tired and boring. The groups that kept coming across the street to our side were fairly clueless and lacking in basic intelligence. The two major demographics I personally got (and remember, this is just MY personal observation) were the 60's hippy refugees feverishing trying to recreate the fire-in-the-belly of their misbegotten youth and the under 20 crowd of "hey, this is cool to be out protesting The Man!" I could almost feel some pity for these guys except they are so openly hostile to America and Israel (there were a few aggitators screaming about "Free Palestine" wandering about) it just makes me ill.
Toward the end of their "rally" they gathered to march again and desparately were trying to coordinate their chanting. I couldn't quite make them all out, but one of our group told me that he heard a brief flurry of "Die Bush Die." If true, I hope the FBI was here and taking pics!
UPDATE midnight: Ok, I'm calling it a night. I'm going to go through my raw images and repost some cropped closeups tomorrow of some of the things that may have gotten lost in the far shots.

I was in NYC and noticed the same demographics. And the young ones are always dressed in black punk style.

You mean those anarchist-anti-government-pro-socialist-big-government? They are so funny. :D
