I'm glad there were protests today in front of the White House about the U.S. wars. But the peace movement, such as it is, is like a person in a restaurant who keeps putting down his hand when the waiter looks at him. Makes a ruckus when Bush is in the White House, quiets down when Obama gets in, instead of using that moment to change things. Now piping up with Republicans taking over House. Well, don't stop, build, get global and end the empire already.
