The anarchists tried and succeeded in being arrested this last Monday, May 14.   They wanted to protest against NATO and for social justice.  So they went to demonstrate inside Obama’s election campaign office.  Getting nowhere, they handed pamphlets to building employees…

Eight of them were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing…   All eight preferred to be taken to jail.

So what’s their accomplishment?

Demonstrating inside the jail house?

If you want to protest against president Obama effectively, go on the first Tuesday in November and vote for his opponent…   It’s a lot more effective than singing Kumbaya My Lord in the jail house…

In fact casting a ballot on election day is more democratic than trespassing private property…
