I wasn't going to talk about this, but....

I'm so disappointed with the nonsensical protesting going on in downtown Vancouver. I say nonsensical because I don't respect their mode of operation. These people are opposed to the money being spent on the Olympics, and now they're stomping through the streets destroying public property. They're tainting the spirit of the Olympics in the city and contradicting themselves in the process. Where is the money going to come from to fix their vandalism? Probably tax payer dollars that could have been spent on something better.

They're dressed in black and wearing balaclavas, spray-painting anarchy signs on buildings and mailboxes. They've lost sight of their protesting goals and they're acting like a group of petulant children, leaving minor destruction in their wake throughout the city.

Everyone has a right to be be heard, but how is their collective voice supposed to be taken seriously when they're acting like this?

  1. I most definitely agree. I have an issue when they conceal their identity - if you're sure that what you're saying is right and just, and the manner in which you're doing it appropriate and legal... Then have the pride to show your face. Sad.


Thanks for dropping by!
