Iranian police clash with protesters

EDITOR’S NOTE: Iranian authorities have barred journalists for international news organizations from reporting on the streets and ordered them to stay in their offices. This report is based on the accounts of witnesses reached in Iran and official statements carried on Iranian media.

Several thousand protesters — some chanting “Where is my vote?” — clashed with riot police in Tehran on Sunday as Iran detained local employees of the British Embassy, escalating the regime’s standoff with the West and earning it a stinging rebuke from the European Union.

Witnesses said riot police used tear gas and clubs to break up a crowd of up to 3,000 protesters who had gathered near north Tehran’s Ghoba Mosque in the country’s first major post-election unrest in four days.

Iranian police clash with protesters

Americans are all up in the air, wanting to take to the streets like the Iranians. But our fight is over the Cap and Trade bill passing a vote in Congress, not a presidential election. 

These people calling for take it to the streets protests have NO idea. People WILL die. Are Americans gutsy enough for that? Are you ready to become a martyr for the cause?

It’s hard to get people out protesting this issue when they see THEIR Congresscritters doing a GREAT job and representing their constituents as We, The People demand! It’s hard to get folks from here in my part of Texas to protest against the ones that aren’t doing the right thing. They aren’t our Congressmen.

ALL of our North Texas representatives voted against Cap and Trade. OUR Representatives did their job! The Congresscritters that voted FOR this debacle need to be taken to the woodshed by THEIR voters.

I tried to send a message to each one of the Putrid 8, I wanted to voice MY anger too! These clowns don’t accept messages from people NOT in their constituency. Imagine that!

And let’s face the cold hard facts, standing on the street protesting some IDIOT congressman that is not my congressman is a lot like the people on Facebook and all their *Impeach Pelosi* bullshit. There is NOTHING that I, as a Texan, can do about Pelosi, other than implore my Congressman to oppose the ignorant old bitch. And he does, at every opportunity.

Protest is only effective when heads roll. Faint heart ne’er won fair lady.

If the people of a certain ward, precinct, county or state don’t take up the fight against their idiot Congresscritters, there’s not a damn thing that I can do to help them. A man that won’t fight for himself is NOT worth ME fighting FOR him.

This is not a time for the weak of heart, if it’s protest you want, by all means, PROTEST, and do it heartily! If blood bothers you, you had better stay home, as the title said, There Will Be Blood!
