....anarchists were frustrated they weren't going to have enough time to "plan". Don't know about you but I wasn't going to lose any sleep over that.

If you aren't near the Xcel Center, then you wouldn't lose any sleep. But that is a typical response by those who don't care about their rights or the rights of others. What would you be saying if YOUR draft number (to fight in GWB's Invasion and Occupation of Iraq) was being called? Why aren't you there now anyway?

Opportunities like this don't come along every day. Let's give those Republicans a convention to remember.

the draft has been gone for over 30 years, put down the doobie and get into this year. By the way the all volunteer services exceeded their goal for recruiting this year.

Talk about uninformed. There hasn't been a draft in a long time. The all volunteer service is doing just fine, we don't need a draft. And how typical, calling for mayheim? LOL, all that will do is reinforce the fact that liberals are nothing but lazy whiners in the eyes of conservatives.

Talk about hysteria. Because I don't care if a bunch of nutjob communists get their "route" months in advance doesn't mean I don't care about rights. I care about rights - the rights of those who will be spit at, swore at, and abused by these anarchists. Do you? These people aren't there to legitimately "protest", they're there to cause trouble. You know it, I know it, and most of all, the police know that. As for the "draft" issue, I'm almost old enough to have been drafted when a draft existed. I faced the REAL possibility of it. Meanwhile, the people who worry about it need only not support the DEMOCRATS who are the only ones who talk about bringing it back.

Of course they are there to cause trouble. And if any of them get arrested, they are going to scream bloodly murder because how dare we arrest them for breaking the law.

They only have the right of free speech which they can exercise just fine away from the convention. Why do they feel they have the right to interrupt a gathering of people who they disagree with. The GOP has a right to gather and not be interrupted just as much as the protesters have a right to protest. each should be able to do their own thing apart from each other.

It's no secret that hundreds, or more likely thousands of dirty, smelly, ill-behaved anarchists will be descending upon our fair city with no other purpose but to stir up trouble. After watching a slew of these derelicts knocked down by fire hose spray during the WTO conferences in Seattle some years back. I say, why not sell Firehose time. Citizens could pay, say $20 for one minute of knocking down scores of the more obnoxious protesters with a fire hose. The benefits here would be three-fold. Security would be maintained. Money could be made to help defray the cost of convention security and these dirty, smelly anarchist would also receive much needed showers. If you have ever been near one of these people you would know that personal hygiene is not their strong suit.
