"I lost my job at a college because I stood my ground and stated I am a conservative and a supporter of Israel." Ms. Castriota

My G-d, it begins. No wonder the Jews here in Fresno, Ca. are wearing baseball caps over their yarmulkes. (A mosque is prominently placed across the street from our local university- much, if not most, of the student body is international.)

I greive for and cheer for our dear Ms. Castriota. While I was in Portland, Oregon recently, President Bush arrived for a simple fund-raising dinner. The elderly attendees, according to the calls into local radio talk shows, were blocked, kicked, pushed, spat on, and screamed at (the large, healthy kids were RIGHT IN THEIR FACE) by "demonstrators." Several hundred thousand dollars were spent cleaning up the trash left by environmental protestors.

Then the "Anti-Violence Coalition for Peace" showed up with HAMMERS in their belts. Symbolic usage only, of course.

If oil money funds despots in the Mid East, and UN aid funds Muslim dictators in Africa, then surely government education funds are being misused- to fund domestic terrorism by our "students"... not to mention foundation monies used for "activist trainers".

And to think, the real reason the protests of the 60's were popular was because "that's where the chicks were"!
