"3:21 p.m.: A complaint came in from employees at the U.S. Post Office that protestors in front of the building are being aggressive toward people and that customers are complaining." Why were people protesting in front of the Post Office?

In Framingham there were some Larouche supporters out front of the 7/11 downtown with a big poster of Obama looking like Hitler. I wonder if it was them. Interesting group of folks. The Larouche organization has been around for a while. http://www.larouchepac.com/ Jim@ccfiile.com

I wasn't downtown yesterday, Shawn, but in previous months the same people that Jim describes have been outside the Post Office. They are pretty aggressive in getting people's attention. They showed up in a police log a few months ago, for stopping cars.

LaRouchies are a funny bunch - if you engage them with facts or logic, they will start singing very loudly in order to ignore you. If you gt a LaRouchie to sing, you know you've won!

I "engaged" them a few months ago--I said, coming out of the Post Office and after they had beckoned me to come and look at their "literature", "Why do you show Obama like that--he doesn't have a mustache, and it is absurd to say that he has anything in common with Adolph Hitler?" And both men started yelling at me. They said (very loudly and angrily), "You should shut your mouth." Well you can just imagine if I did shut my mouth. (Not so much.) So when I came out of the Post Office yesterday, and two different men at that ugly and offensive stall called me over to look into it, I just shook my head and walked on by, and saved myself a lot of time.

A broken clock is right twice a day.....and so aren't they, because they do have a point. Bush and Obama are guilty of killings hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of innocent people over these past 10 years. They have been proven guilty of invading innocent countries that have not been a problem to the U.S. in the past. Actually these countries had good relations with the U. S. for the most part. The whole reason for invading Iraq, Afghanistan, and (now possibly Iran), ....were all done based on lies. Lets not forget the killing of our innocent men who went to fight over there under false pretense. Of the over 4000 soldiers who have been killed there were actually put in harms way because of Bush and Obama. Bush more so than Obama. But Obama still waited too long to pull the troops. In fact he lied to the time period he would do it. Two years too late! So the Larouche people are right on with that thought. Jim@ccfiile.com

A broken clock is never right. A clock's purpose is to measure and keep time. By being "broken" it denies its very essence and ceases to even be a clock. It's your perception that the clock provides you useful information twice a day, but that's not the clock's fault. I must have missed this "...They have been proven guilty of invading innocent countries..." In what US State or under what US court of law did this occur?

Protestors using smear tactics and disinformation always amuses me... they disregard factual information and statistics, motivated by some sense of self-righteousness.

Proven guilty by constitutionilist who know what's going on. Jim@ccfiile.com
David Nolta January 05, 2012 at 10:36 AM
They're aggressive, mean-spirited, lying creatures. And neither Bush nor Obama is fairly treated by any analogy to Hitler. And I saw no reference to Bush, so it was our president who was being attacked by their aggressive, mean-spirited, lies. I'm told that these men are paid by the Larouche team of wack-o's to stand out there and spread their stuff...

David....some of those things might be true, but the are right about the war. Jim@ccfiile.com
