Funk Lockheed Martin!

LM is passing out free American flags non-environmentally-sensitive symbols of jingoistic nationalism and AmeriKKKan racism, imperialism, sexism, queerism, theism, and fillintheblankism at Thursday night's Rockies game, and disaffected suburban rapper poseurs aren't happy about it.

Well, I guess I have to give the execrable Johnny 5 credit for wanting to merely "funk" Lockheed Martin rather than burn it down, as his co-performer at a recent snit rally expressed a desire to do.

And come on..."Students for a Democratic Society"? As if the hippie nostalgia of Recreate 68 wasn't bad enough, we now have someone reanimating that corpse? I thought it was the right that supposedly clung to the faded glories of a distant golden age. (Even this pitiful "rapper" has a nostalgic stage name, albeit from a different era.)

I have a feeling we're going to be seeing some extra security at the office in late August...

Seems like another lame attempt to be 'hip' and 'cool' by political organizers. SDS never accomplished anything meaningful . And Recreate'68? Why would they want to disrupt the convention of their beloved Democrats, especially since Obama, our new savior, is going to CHANGE everything, and we'll all be living in a worker's paradise. .... As for LM passing out flags - how is that 'promoting endless war'? It's sad that a new generation of college students is so easily conned into believing what their aging hippy socialist professors tell them about the 'evils' of the U.S. and it's history (while ignoring the real evils perpetrated by communism and socialism.) Our country may not be perfect, but it's been a hell of a lot better than most. I for one will be proud to wave the flag this weekend.
