But I wanted to throw in a jab at some local "conservatives" while I was at it.
No, The RNC did not Buy and Pay for Pier 57.
Obviously, Allies of the Bush Campaign (this means you Mr. bloomberg) had a hand in setting the policy of false arrest and extended detention of just about anyone in Midtown Manhattan last week. However:
You and I and all the taxpaying citizens of New York paid for it. I would like to ask the frowny-face delegates of the RNC. "Why do YOU hate America?" Apparently they really do hate our freedom.
You know, I almost feel sorry for them- I cant imagine what it's like to live in constant fear of ones own fellow countrymen. It reminds me of how Lars Larson occasionally puts out some "why I have a gun" editorial here in Portland. Some folks have firearms as a surrogate penis, but I think Lars and others are honestly very fearful of the world and people around them. We can laugh at them but it's not nice becuase it's really a mental illness.
