RE: PHOTO by Igor71 4:18 pm Fri Aug 23 Aritcle 6:
WHY THE SIGNS SO IGNORANT-A SIGN WITH A VAGUE STATMENT
OF OPINION PRESENTS NO FACTS!!! withOUT that on the sign,
you only FURTHER the cause of your...so called "opponents"
WHY PUT SPACED OUT STATEMENTS ON A SIGN, WHERE
ARE YOUR EXAMPLES, FEW WORDS OR NO!!!???
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR OPINIONS, FROM YOUR "TRENDY
FRIENDS"???
THERE IS NOTHING MORE FLATTERING THAN HAVING PICKET
SIGNS OUTSIDE OF A POPULAR EVENT, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT
APPEAR TO MAKE NO SENSE TO MOST OF THE MINDLESS MASSES!!!
It only makes your opponents flattered, and such dialogue
takes place in meeting, "behind closed doors" if you will,
and has shown up in (expired)transcripts from time to time.
LOOK UP YOUR HISTORY!!! And no, I don't mean the History
fro TExtbooks, or from your School History Class, but the
word "history" has a meaning OUTSIDE of that familiar
context. Even YOU have a "history" GET IT???
LOOK UP YOUR "HISTORIES" and COME UP WITH SIGNS THAT
SAY SOMETHING, OR YOU JOIN CAUSE WITH YOUR SO-CALLED...
"OPPONENTS" AND SIMPLY -- FLATTER THEM WITH COLORFUL
ATTENTION!!!! There's been something written on anything
that happens that doesn't publish front page, and much has
been in press but NOT - POPULARIZED!!! EVEN BY Public TV
Newscasters who DON'T look up THEIR "history"!!! From old
(back page) press articles(much on CD ROM!)DESPITE THEIR
Job Descriptions to do just THAT!!!

Hey NOT AGAINST ANARCYbutStupidIGNORANT-ANARCY Think about something. Yes Signs with slogans may not be the most informative in the world but at the same time they need to be seen. A sign that reads "BUSH IS A TERRORIST- these facts can be seen by the fact that he ect. ect ect." With full theisis and conclusion wouldn't be able to be seen. You work with what you've got at catchy slogans are more easily remebered. Functions like those shown above generally have speakers which is where the real detials come out. And barring that if someone comes up and asks you by all means tell them. I am quite aware that the media and "The Offcail History of the World as told to us by Nike" will take things out of context or try to make things seem absurd that is why people need to take it upon thimselves to calmly educate those who are intrested as well as using alternative media such as Indymedia. Or since all of this wouldn't fit on a plakard. TEACH DON'T PREACH. or some such witty statement.
