« War stories from the 5th Anniversary.. damn | Main | Is McCain President Already?!! »



You got some great shots! The redhead with the nice haircut is kind of gratuitous LOL. I do see her little pin. I kind of forgot about ours and now I feel so guilty. I am usually one of the "usual suspects," not that I want to be. Not in Our Name had an event here today and if the newspaper said 500 it was probably 1000. ANSWER has one on Weds. night and I think there are other candle light vigils.

The whole thing is a big shame. See the stats on the story below where I wrote a little more. It's sickening. Jerome a Paris at DailyKos had this cool energy plan that would take this country out of bankruptcy and we would have enough money to do it if we weren't at war. (It involves fixing our energy infrastructure and would create jobs.)

There has been alot of controversy about what certain preachers said lately. I must say that I agree with some of the controversial things that were said. Truth hurts and people don't want to hear it.


Thanks for AGAIN documenting this event on film -- well, not actual FILM, but you know what I mean. You do great work. We hope you'll be able to join us at the Capitol at noon on March 19 for Eyes Wide Open.


Krista, I will try to be there and right now it appears I can make it to the Eyes Wide Open event.

Thanks for stopping by.


Hey kayakbiker,

thanks for posting all these! You always take really great shots. From up there on the overpass, were you able to get a crowd estimate?


Oh, so I see you included that in the text at the beginning... my bad. Damn seductive pictures drawing my attention away! :-)


Beautiful shots. I don't bother taking pics any more when I see you there, friend. You always capture the heart and soul of the events. Posted a link at OpEd News: http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/link.php?id=54540


Thanks Kat for the link (and the nice comment). I was wondering how I was getting referrals from that site. The Strib had the rally covered but they used a high-powered telephoto lens to take the crowd shot which made it look smaller than it was, The Strib quoted the police and the rally organizers for estimates of the crowd size and cited both. I don't know how the police made their estimate, but the organizers used counters and had at least two persons clicking as persons walked by. I know because they were on the bridge with me as I captured images of the crowd.

Watch the testimony of the winter soldiers:

Re crowd size - usually it's double what the newspapers say.

Cool I went to the OpE site & it links nicely to here!!


Women more than men can strip war of its glamour and its out-of-date heroisms and patriotisms, and see it as a demon of destruction and hideous wrong.

Viewing your photo journal has to be the next best thing to being there in person. Thanks.


I like your hot links.
Governor Bush (who was not elected president) is not "to old" to take his place in the front lines of the war he started. That's like saying the Iraqi children are "too young" to be there. I think he should sign up and go have his "exciting, romantic fling" that he most surely missed by avoiding Vietnam. It's not too late Mr. Bush, come January you will be out of work and have plenty of time. And, as a bonus, it might even earn you a little respect.


Great photographs Kyakbiker. I am glad you were able to attend.

Thank you for the coverage. It was the best I've seen.

I liked this response from a friend:

I thought the man in his suit and trench coat, holding the flag and
"impeach" sign made the loudest statement of all!!!

The media toilet bowl is once again swiftboating our Democratic candidates
and party. As Rome burns "Feds bail out Wall Street", the media fiddles and
swiftboats Dems over Geraldine Ferraro, Rev. Wright, the power of the
superdelegates, and what to do with Florida/Michigan. Not a negative word
about what is happening in the nary a word of McCain and his rabid support
of those right wing evangelicals.

What really burns us is how religion has become so front and center in
politics since the rise of GW. There is a real reason why the founders
decided to separate politics from religion. Religion has become so angry,
divisive, intolerant, and contentious. As all the religious faithful rise
from their pews, they are bid adieu with "Go in Peace!" It is so laughable.

SDS is back again!

Dare to struggle, Dare to win SDS is back again!


I *love* the businessman with earmuffs, flag and the impeach sign.

And I love minnesotans!


"Not surprisingly, I didn't see any signs declaring that 'war is romantic', which is what George W. Bush said the other day."

That's not what he said, so why the quotes?

You don't even care.

It looks like you've got dishonest propaganda to disseminate, so carry on.
