Protest in Orange County
After work I drove past one of the major malls in Orange County and saw this group of about six protesters. This is all of them--nobody else was on the other side of the man with the white beard.
I was disappointed to be in a lane too far away to roll down my window and let them know I disagreed with them. I'm not sure what I would have said, though.
There's Kool-Aid here. You can see it in the Bush-Cheney "Liars" poster. A duplicate poster is hidden behind it.
California may be a blue state, but Orange County (and to a lesser degree San Diego County) is a red island in that blueness. And this mall is in one of the upscale parts of Orange County, which is why I was surprised to see a left-leaning protest here. But that's probably why there weren't more than half a dozen protesters.
I like the sign, "Work for Peace." That's what Israel is doing by trying to decimate Hezbollah. I hope they continue until they succeed.
