Speaking of bizarre protests.......
First of course is this little gem from Lost Nomad-seems Cindy Sheehan thinks her blue passport gives her free access to the exchange. Courtesy of Lost Nomad:
Finding the area around Camp Humphreys a little bit too urban for her liking, Cindy Sheehan decided to protest in front of Yongsan Garrison, where she probably (and erroneously) thought she could get on post to grab a quick Taco Bell lunch once her act was finished.
Peace activist Cindy Sheehan and a handful of other Americans on Tuesday afternoon held their passports in front of South Korean riot police outside a main gate onto Yongsan Garrison, requesting a meeting with U.S. Forces Korea’s commanding general. Their blue booklets and their chants for the U.S. military to halt base expansion plans south of Seoul went unanswered during the 40-minute long protest. “My father served at this base,” Sheehan said as she stood in front of Gate 5 at Yongsan Garrison. “I have the right as an American to come onto this base.”
First of all, someone needs to check their spelling. Second of all, it doesn’t matter who served at what base or what passport you’re holding - neither give you the right to enter a military installation. Not in the USA, and certainly not overseas. Have a nice flight home, Cindy, and come again when you can’t stay so long.
The last paragraph sums things up nicely. What the hell does bases in Korea have to do with the war in Iraq? I think Cindy Sheehan needs psychicatric help-soon. This woman is anything but stable.
And who the hell is paying for her air fare? Flights to Incheon are not cheap.
Now on the other side of the spectrum, a protest organization has come up with a better way to "fight the power" : by having sex.
That's right-I don't make this stuff up!
THE 1ST ANNUAL SYNCHRONIZED GLOBAL ORGASM FOR PEACE
WHO? All Men and Women, you and everyone you know.
WHERE? Everywhere in the world, but especially in countries with weapons of mass destruction.
WHEN? Winter Solstice Day - Friday, December 22nd, at the time of your choosing, in the place of your choosing and with as much privacy as you choose.
WHY? To effect positive change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy ( a Synchronized Global Orgasm. There are two more US fleets heading for the Persian Gulf with anti-submarine equipment that can only be for use against Iran, so the time to change Earth's energy is NOW!
Our minds influence Matter and Energy fields, so by concentrating any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace and partnership, the combination of high orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention will reduce global levels of violence, hatred and fear.
Orgasm is something just about everyone can do and enjoy. And you can orgasm by yourself or with someone else. You don't even have to tell anyone you're going to do it!
Hey this looks like something that everyone can try-regardless of one's feelings about the war. If nothing else it provides a new and novel reason to do it. "But honey, its for world peace! Don't you care about the world? I know I do-so sleep with me.........".
Hey, its a reason-as if any self respecting guy needs one.
However if you do, here is the reason they give on their blog:
Why orgasm - we know that you guys need MORE sex not less - so here's a chance to practice, practice, practice for Peace - - the big day is Winter Solstice December 22!!!&.and look forward to the day when women realize that all you need is more comfort and sex!
I'm sold. "Honey, come over here and read this!".
Remember to play safe however:
