3,000 marched in Pittsburgh to mark the second anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War.
CMU students marched in this tank -- perhaps as a counter to Gladiator? One marched pointed out though that Gladiator is an unmanned tank.
So you can see the scale of this march. Largest march in Pittsburgh since January 2003.
Instigators at Carnegie Mellon University fraternity, Delta Upsilon. I don't think anybody really got drawn into anything with them. CMU police helped make sure.
outside the Software Engineering Institute at CMU
Lovely picture of the back of my head. (I'm in the blue cap.) :)
Does anyone think that these protests actually do anything? Why aren't more people coming into the rural communities to engage dialogue about the war? Isn't this preaching to the choir?
What a pretty tank.
Ahh the irony...

The privileged students of CMU who would most certainly be spared the draft due to their wealthy parent's influence are such GI Joe tough guys. Silver spoon fed, soft-bellied future republican, pussy cowards is all they are. These kids would shit their pants in a one-on-one confrontation with a protester, but they are all balls when they're with their fellow richie riches.
This marching band is great, they kept my feet moving lightly with that heavy pink tank on my back
ahh the irony

Hey Sumguy, I sympathize with your class anger.
I'm hoping to find pictures of two individual protesters. The guy had a sign that said "How Many Lives Per Gallon" on one side and the other had a painting of the flag with "These Colors Don't Run the World" over it. The girl had a sign saying "NO WAR" on one side and "KNOW PEACE" on the other. She was standing infront of the frat boys giving them the peace sign for a while. If anybody has pictures of them please e-mail them to meat firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

HOW MANY TREES HAD TO DIE SO YOU COULD WLAK AROUND IN A PINK TANK !! CAN WE COME UP WITH A MORE ECO-FRIENDLY WAY TO PROTEST THE DEATH OF INNOCENT PEOPLE WITHOUT DESTROYING THE INNOCENT ENVIRONMENT !!
Cut the BS

Cut the BS:
Hey SavetheEarth: maybe the card board is recycled. Maybe, just maybe it was saved from some dumpster.
Hey sumguy: chill before you have a heart attack. do you know the intimate financial situation of everyone of those frat jerks? By your language, I would say no, and that perhaps you are projecting alittle.
The frat jerks had signs that said "take a bath" and "use soap". By that, they were making a generalization based on previous attitudes, etc, etc, you know the story. Point is, let's not return the favor eh?
STOP THE BS!

Yeah, good point.
you are sick

You scream for peace, but you wish for death and mayhem. That doesns't make you a freedom fighter, or anti-imperialist, it makes you a heartless ass. Idon't wish any harm to you or your family. I do not beleive the frat boys wish you any harm or harm to your families. I do believe thatthey enjoy being provocative towards you in quite teh smae why the protest crowd enjoys this for themselves. Just call it diversity of tactics from an opposing viewpoint. Oh, I forgot, you appreciate NO diversity of thought. Maybe you are the ones who need the "real education" (and not by having your family murdered, but by maybe actually being educated). A little less hate and a lot more intellectual fortitude.
send the recruiters!

I think someone should suggest that address and their phone number to the military recruiters.
Diversity of thought my ass
by Urnan Guerrilla Wednesday, Mar. 30, 2005 at 4:49 AM
"Nuke Iran" and "Blow up Paris" is not diversity of thought coming from the CMU silver spoons. It is out and out agitation, and probably not too far from how these tunnel-visioned, pro war, republican brainwashed kids really feel. I'd expect something like that from high school aged kids, but CMU students? What a shame that in a short time these juvenile-minded young people will be polluting the work world with their narrow, hate filled views and influence.

You'll be working for them.

Yes, and with such profound understanding of how the world works, they surely have nowhere to go but up.

its true, though i doubt you 'll know it. I dont think presidents of companies really bother with their menial employees, so you will probably never know.
And your right, they do have a good understanding of the world,
oh and btw soap is the whtie stuff you wash yourself with, not the green stuff you smoke

Typical. You don't even have the job yet, and you are already complaining about it and the guy who would sign your paycheck.
by we do use soap Monday, Apr. 11, 2005 at 3:10 PM
Typical. You aren't even in a managerial position and you are already a condescending asshole. But seriously, I hope you do get that nice job you think you already have, because this world exists outside your delusions of grandeur.
Just keep in mind guys, presiding over companies requires more than drinking beer at parties with people in Ambercrombie clothes! Ha ha, I can stereotype too!
Drinking Beer with the Abercrombie Crowd
by Frat Boy Thursday, Apr. 14, 2005 at 12:23 PM
is just a starting point. Later you graduate to sipping scotch with the Versace crowd.
It is curious how you stereotype and you don't take credit for it. Your senseless statements about the captains of modern American industry are ignorant and just plain wrongheaded. But what should we expect from the emptyheaded leftist socialist hand-out crowd.
by . Thursday, Apr. 14, 2005 at 1:18 PM
Most of the Frat Boys I've known have graduated to living in their mom's basement.
Maybe thats the Versace crowd.

is not a fraternity, so just because they are still living in mommy's basement doesn't mean anything. All the frat boys I have known are rather successful and quite sexy.
