Bringing The War Back Home 

"We're bringing the war back home
Where it ought to have been before!
We'll kill all the bees
And spiders and flies
And we won't play in iceboxes lying on their sides
We'll wash our hands after we wee.
And if we're a girl, before!
And we'll march,march,march, et cetera!
'Til we never do march no more!"

---Firesign Theatre, from "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers"

And down in Crawford, the pro-war mouseketeers, not content with spreading the love in Iraq, are supporting the troops in their own lovable way by playing war across the road from "The Bitch in the Ditch":
"With five days left until the end of anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan's vigil near President Bush's ranch, Crawford became protest central Saturday as supporters and opponents of the Iraq war rallied, marched and simmered in 101-degree heat.
A handful also got themselves arrested, including a protester whose anti-Sheehan sign was deemed unnecessarily offensive by organizers of a large pro-Bush rally. The man carrying the sign became violent when he was asked to put it down.
Ken Robinson, of Richardson, Texas, who described himself as a Vietnam veteran, was carrying a sign at a “You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy!” rally. The sign read, “How to wreck your family in 30 days by ‘b**** in the ditch' Cindy Sheehan.”
Kristinn Taylor, an event organizer with FreeRepublic.com, heard about the sign and rushed up to Robinson.
“This is our rally and you can't do that here,” he said, only for Robinson to insist he was within his rights...
“Just get outta here!” Robinson yelled, and aimed a kick at Taylor's midsection. Taylor called for security, and a young Woodway policeman quickly showed up.
“I have the right to freedom of speech,” Robinson said.
Robinson continued to protest loudly as police handcuffed him and led him away."
They eat their own. Bless this food, Lord.
