Hi,there!
It's a very good use of web language. Infact it gives a new field of preparing applications that involve drawing works.

  • Most on-line players who join up using an on-line wager sites lately, execute that so as to engage in the favored on-line pokies. The beauty of online pokies is each match is sort of distinct, and has quite a few variations compared to just one other pokie video game titles.

So, I couldn't have been

So, I couldn't have been bothered to watch the garbage & give TV ratings to the fascists. But I wanted to know on:

Was there any update to this at all? Was there any dissent when Romney spoke? Was there any booing or shouting "liar, cheater"...anything? Did any of our delegates turn their backs when he spoke?

This will turn against them

It reminds me of a poem authored by Padraig Pearse (Irish rebel and patriot). It is called the Rebel. The more tyrants hold a people down, the greater the numbers of those resisting tyranny grows. The fools!
"
And now I speak, being full of vision:
I speak to my people, and I speak in my people’s name to
The masters of my people:
I say to my people that they are holy,
That they are august despite their chains.
That they are greater than those that hold them
And stronger and purer,
That they have but need of courage, and to call on the name of their God,
God the unforgetting, the dear God who loves the people
For whom he died naked, suffering shame.
And I say to my people’s masters: Beware
Beware of the thing that is coming, beware of the risen people
Who shall take what ye would not give.
Did ye think to conquer the people, or that law is stronger than life,
And than men’s desire to be free?
We will try it out with you ye that have harried and held,
Ye that have bullied and bribed.
Tyrants… hypocrites… liars!"

So proud of the people in Maine!

and all the other Ron Paul delegates.

Rigged

Guy with the Romney "R" Rigged display is my favorite part!

Keep up the great work!

And keep making NOISE! We love you guys!

yes! so proud of you

yes! so proud of you delegates!

I had recommended silent non-attendance, but . . .

when we saw this we both were really impressed; we are proud of you!!!

You are OUR Americans!!!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

winning ???

The only way for this or anything like it to be effective is to do it during Mitt's speech. Live on TV. Absolutely LOUD and in MASS !! At this point the only ones who will hear about this will be those on the Daily Paul. HAMMER DOWN PATRIOTS! MAKE NOISE TONIGHT! IT IS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD AND SEEN! SIEZE THE MOMENT! WHOOT!!!

That was a few dozen people

Not many hearts and minds will be changed - not even engaged in the discussion - if that is the extent of the protest.

We were hundreds

Did you have a point, or did you just wake up ready to piss in someone's cereal?

Then it is a lousy video

This video showed a few dozen protestors - not hundreds - I personally don't know how many protestors actually participated - I just know what was put forth as proof and it was not hundreds. Perhaps you should present some visual proof to back up your claim on here - regardless of my comment, it would help make the point to put out better proof.

Let's see

if you can stick with the 'dozens' argument:
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25050694

BASED ON THAT - YES I CAN

That video didn't show a big crowd of hundreds - far from it - this must be like the stealth delegates - some of the protestors are obviously invisible to all except the true believers.

In that case

If all of the hundreds slapped the back of your head on the way out, you would still say 'dozens'.

There is no way 'dozens' could have made the noise heard in that vid.

Report back to Rmoney Central, immediately.

Can't find it now, but there was either a video or an

article or maybe even a comment that said there were about 200 delegates that walked out, including some Santorum delegates and that they were all leaving by different exits. This was from an eye witness.

I can appreciate being sceptical but, in this case your suspicion is not correct. If I find where I saw it, I'll post it for you.

Start with this, MLJ and

if and when I find the "different exits" thing, I'll post that, too.

Make sure you read the comments from people who were there and took part in this.

This is how the r3volution should be fought

If they ignore us, we make more noise.

One more reason to love the state of Maine

That was a beautiful sight. Thank you - all of you.

Thank you to ALL Ron Paul delegates

you are true Patriots and we love you.

And the media blackout of Ron Paul continues.

I see absolutely no mention of this in any other media.

WINNING

THEY CAN NOT BLACKOUT A MAJOR VOCAL PROTEST DURING MITT"S SPEECH !!!

I spotted Amy Goodman at the end of the video so I found this:

Best coverage so far on RP delegates at RNC

Thanks for this link... this Democracy Now piece is the best media coverage so far on the RP delegates and the Maine delegates and how the RNC can change the rules because it is not the main stream.

There are Many Bobs...I'm the Maine Bob!

You may not like Amy...yet....

...she does cover what the main stream media will not cover... She covers the ideas that are important to bring out and discuss... That AlJazeer piece was very good...in covering the various aspects of corruption and money that is ruining our democracy.

There are Many Bobs...I'm the Maine Bob!

NOT democracy

but rather our REPUBLIC!
