Poor choice by the parade
By Rick Watson
July 13, 2006
I too agree with Anita and Gerry that the anti-war demonstrators
should not have been allowed in the 4th of July parade.
There is a right time and place for these people to exercise
their right to freedom of speech. I think the parade committee
made a poor choice in letting the demonstrators have the 4th
of July parade as their time. I thought this committee had an
Independence Day theme to follow. Too bad this one slipped by.
I would be willing to bet these same frame of mind people live
in wood houses, use napkins, paper towels and toilet paper, yet
demonstrate and protest that forests should not be logged.
That being said, Thank you to all the Men and Women, past and
present who have served in our Armed Forces to maintain peace,
domestic or foreign, and whatever it took.
Just my opinion.
