Are you being sinister or is this some form of practical joke?

This is insane.

I have been sufficiently brainwashed that I was briefly thinking earlier that she shouldn't have been wandering around with a breadboard like that... then I remembered being 10 and carrying breadboards with hundreds of wires sticking out of them around.

Also, I don't understand how people aren't pissed about this John Kerry taser thing. How does anyone like him? Why didn't he do something, anything? And how the hell is it ok for the cops to taser some crazy guy who's just babbling? The video is really disturbing. Why do people clap at the end?

And, I don't understand about inciting to riot here.

It's a crime to dress as a stereotypical terrorist, babble insanely about how Kerry won an election, and act like a KKK member... all these punishable by fines, imprisonment or torture.

...I seem to think speech isn't just things you say, but things you do, make, write, perform... and that all these should be protected as speech should be protected. I seem to be rather alone in this: another example I remember from arguing with a cop once, fighting words.

What am I supposed to do about all this? Vote for her?
