View Full Version : Republican Convention: Anyone Sticking Around?

Just wondering if anyone is making plans to escape the gridlock of convention week in NYC?

I'm heading to Costa Rica!

No...I am sticking around because I have to wok but I will want to be with the protesters somewhere.

:evil: They are not kicking me out!

I wouldn't miss it for the world: the protests, that is.

What is all this protesting I hear about? It's one thing to protest against particular candidates, but people are protesting against the Republican party as a whole?! :?

I guess anyone without a liberal view must be evil and must be protested against huh? :roll:

If I were a NYC resident, I'd be worried that the worldwide protester influx could lead to some rather volatile protester/police situations (read teargas). I wouldn't doubt it if ritzy hotels, restaurants, etc. w/ high profile guests hire sidewalk clearing 'goon-squads' to accomodate their patrons.
I'd bet that there will be a near-free-for-all-dirty-hippie-bash-fest once the anarchists start their stupid sh*t.
Stay way....STAY AWAY!

I'll just sit back and watch it unfold. And laugh at the irony that the landscape is so changed, the reasons for choosing NY no longer exist.

I will be in town, and my curiosity might even lead me into the hornets nest.
