Why The Eagles Need To Fly
Several thousand anti-war demonstrators marched through downtown Washington on Saturday, clashing with police at the foot of the Capitol steps where more than 190 protesters were arrested.
The group marched from the White House to the Capitol to demand an end to the Iraq war. Their numbers stretched for blocks along Pennsylvania Avenue, and they held banners and signs and chanted, "What do we want? Troops out. When do we want it? Now."
Army veteran Justin Cliburn, 25, of Lawton, Okla., was among a contingent of Iraq veterans in attendance.
"We're occupying a people who do not want us there," Cliburn said of Iraq. "We're here to show that it isn't just a bunch of old hippies from the 60s who are against this war."
No, most of these people aren't old hippies; they desperately want to be new hippies. We should oblige them by calling the whole sorry batch of 'em neo-hipsters (the 'doofus' is optional).
In the pic above, they are in Washington D.C. having their 'die-in' (Oh, would that it were so!)
