Today's Protesters Transported to 1944

Just imagine if the anti-war protesters of 2008 were magically transported back to 1944.

Two questions:

1. What would have happened to them?

2. Would the police have been as nice to them as they are today?

You tell me.

16 comments taken from police car videos:

16. 'You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through.'
15. 'Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a awhile.'
14. 'If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document.'
13. 'If you run, you'll only go to jail tired.'
12. 'Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you.'
11. 'You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?'
10. 'Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?'
9. 'Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket.'
8. 'The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?'
7. 'Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop.'
6. 'Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.'
5. 'In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC.'
4. 'How big were those 'two beers' you say you had ?'
3. 'No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can.'
2. 'I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.'
1. 'You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right , we don't. Sign.'

St. Stupid Day in San Francisco

I saw a story on the news that some folks in San Francisco celebrated St. Stupids Day on April 1st. They dressed in funny and strange costumes, shouted silly and stupid slogans, and marched and paraded around town.
Consider some of the other celebrations, events, and people in the San Francisco area:
1. Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration
2. Protests at the Berkley Marine Corps Recruiting Center by Code Pink
3. the "hunky" Jesus contest
4. the City Council
That leaves the question - what makes St. Stupid Day any different from a normal San Francisco day?
