Salt Lake City...? Venue for a Bush protest...?
Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson called for "the biggest demonstration this state has ever seen" to protest President Bush's appearance Monday before a national veterans convention.
"There should be a collaboration of health-care-provision advocates, seniors, the [gay, lesbian and bisexual and transsexual] community, anti-Patriot Act advocates and other civil libertarians, anti-war folks, pro-Social Security advocates, environmental advocates, anti-nuclear-testing advocates, and anti-nuclear-waste- shipment-and-storage advocates," the mayor wrote in the e-mail.
The mayor's message drew a howl of outrage from Mike Parkin, senior vice commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Atomic Post 4355 in Salt Lake City.
"Excuse my French, but - that son of a bitch!" he said. "It makes the mayor look very, very unpatriotic. It makes him look despicable."
i totally fail to understand why any veteran in her right mind would support bush... as a veteran myself with both my oldest son and his wife working for the veterans administration, i am all too aware of the havoc bush is creating with veterans, veterans programs and veterans benefits... every time i see a vehicle on the road with one of those "veterans for bush," i wanna pull the driver over and ask what in the world she can be thinking...
