All these hippie wannabees should remember that those who did it in the 60's grew up, got jobs, and raised families becoming the political, economic, and spiritual leaders that you whine against today.

Hey Chuck....run for government and change the world....oops, you must busy with your blackberry, web sites and high moral positioning.

Any chance you'd be willing to go over to Afghanistan and straighten things out for women and children? Yes, I'm sure you a lot happier here throwing rocks with your face hidden than working there to change a 3rd world nightmare.

Coward.

Chuck- you are so misguided and mistaken on so many levels- you must be very young to be so misinformed. The Olympics have nothing to do with the war in Afghanistan. Are you similarly outraged at the atrocities committed by terrorists in general and the Taliban in particular? The recent death of civialians in this war was a very serious event - but it was not murder but was an unfortunate accident. Nato realizes that such actions alienate the population and play in the hands of the terrorists' propaganda machine - which you seem to be an unwitting proponent- shame on you.

yah you're right Chuck, lets just let everything go and let people do whatever they want, just as long as they don't smash your window right Chuckie? Actually wait, with all of the injustices you just mentioned why would protestors be acting this way, for what cause we're still not sure about at the Oympics? These protestors need to really evaluate their purpose and take it to the proper location for the right ears to hear. Thanks for proving our point Chuck.

Nobody and I mean nobody remembers or cares about any protesters other than those sympathetic to the cause, that is why Black bloc tactics work and peaceful change for a minority group does not.

Nobody cares about thorpe or Hill, because they are just spinning their wheels perpetually in the kind of never noticed protesting they organize and involve themselves in regularly.

If it wasn't for the tactically intellegent Black Bloc protesters, the peaceful march of saturday wouldn't have been mentioned on the news at all.

The only reason for discussion on this topic is at this point is because of the efforts made by Black Bloc and this should be acknowledged.


Black Bloc is all that gets anyones attention in an HFCS world, 2010-02-15 10:12:53

the cops have their face covered and no identification, so is it not hypocritical to critisize one group and not the other who is suppose to be under oath, and above reproach?

protesting is fine... just like the Kahweksane (warriors.. laughable) hiding their faces.... Jokes...

For these protestors, lets lets them help the Olympics by getting them to hold the targets for the biatheletes in their teeth...

sign me up for that sport ...!

Nato forces killed 12 civilians in Afganistan today in an offensive offensive with started the same day as the Olympics started.

The damage done to the Bay windows amounts to the kind of vandalism which happens almost every weekend in any city, nation wide, yet everybody is outraged for unfounded reasons when broken windows for other reasons are never given a second thought. What a bunch of selective hypocrites you window whiners are, when you ignore war crimes but scream for justice of two windows, but not the murdered civilians killed by Nato forces. Not coincidently General electric weaponary, as well as GM trucks are involved in slaughtering civilians as an invasion force while presenting the fallacious notion of Unity in Vancouver as I write. It is one reality disguised as two different things, unrelated. Why do many of you choose to ignore the misery these sponsors are responsible for? Why do you support murder, opression, repealing of liberties, just so you can watch a lop sided non sporting event which amount to the entire Olympic games? Shame on you complicit war monger types, shame on you indeed.

Adding it up, great, hopefully they destroy your property then and I'm sure you would be complaining that no one stopped the destruction caused by these idiots. What idiot would support or defend the actions of these people?
