How to attract more anti-war protesters

Deep in the bowels of the George Soros machine, a meeting took place just last week.
The topic: How to make anti-war protests bigger.
"We just don't have the numbers we did in the '60s," said Hanoi Jane. "Those were the days, my friend."
"Yeah, we can't get it done," said Mother Cindy. "We need to get it done to overthrow Chimpy McBushHalliburtonCheney and install our Red flag over the White House."
"You know," said the ghost of Ernesto Guevara, "there is a way to get it done."
"What, oh sainted one?"
"Hook on to these illegal aliens protests."
"You mean undocumented residents."
"Cut the bull and speak plain language, you fools. They're illegally in your country and you know it. Use 'em."
"But we do," said Fat Ted. "They're our servants and landscapers and housecleaners and drug dealers."
"Use 'em, you knuckleheads. What did they get out in L.A.? Half a million? You never got those kinds of numbers out there in the glory days of Vietnam."
"But they're so... so... so common," whined Alex B. "I mean, construction workers and all. We can't associate with them."
"That's your problem, butthead. You're such a bleeping snob that you can't get next to the very people who could put you over the top. You ain't gonna get no revolution until you suck it up and get down with the real people. Why do you think I was so successful?"
"And so dead," snarked Alex B.
"You see anybody wearing any of your t-shirts, you no-talent whore?"
"So take my advice. Hook up with the illegal aliens and you'll get the numbers you need. Now, I'm outta here. I can only stand to stay with limousine liberals like you for a few minutes. Otherwise, my aura gets tarnished."

The new civil rights movement

Civil rights for illegal aliens?
That's next, it seems...
One protest organizer described the effort as "the beginning of an immigration civil rights movement."
"This is the tip of the iceberg," said Marissa Graciosa, a political organizer at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, one of several groups that rallied about 300,000 people into the streets of Chicago on March 10.
It occurs to me, the descendant of legal immigrants, that something is wrong with this picture. Half a million in LA? 300 thou is Chicago? How many of those marchers are here illegally?
I'll offer a suggestion.
Have INS agents attend some of these demonstrations. Let's have them question a few folks, asking for small details like green cards, etc. If someone turns up illegal, boom! Start the deportation ball rolling immediatamente.
And, if Mexico continues to insist and work toward facilitating illegal entry into the US of A, then get a congressman (Tom Tancredo comes to mind) to enter a bill banning ALL immigration from Mexico until things change.

Was he or wasn't he?

Zacarias Moussaoui is a real card, isn't he?
He's always got us on, telling us that, no, he wasn't the 20th hijacker for 9-11, then saying yes, he was, then coming up with another story. The latest, Monday, came in a Virginia courtroom...
Al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified yesterday that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard C. Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane on September 11 and fly it into the White House.
Moussaoui's testimony on his own behalf stunned the Alexandria courtroom as his account was in stark contrast to his previous statements.
This is going on during the penalty phase of his trial, in which Moussaoui could be sentenced to death. That may be just what he wants...
Defense attorney Edward MacMahon had told the jury that Moussaoui wanted martyrdom and that the only way he could achieve that would be if the jury gave him the death penalty.
Three times, [prosecutor Rob] Spencer asked Moussaoui a version of this question: "If you get the death penalty, you are not a martyr?"
"It's more complex," Moussaoui said. "It depends."
"Depends on what?" Mr. Spencer asked.
"If you have fought to the best of your ability," Moussaoui said.
Well, considering he's acted very much like a bumbling idiot, I would say he's failed to fight to the best of his ability, unless he's such a dunderhead that his ability is unquestionably limited.
So, by that standard, even if he should get the death penalty, he would not qualify as a martyr.
Sorry, Zach, you can't have those 72 virgins after all.
