Does it really matter if they worked for McDonald's? Is it wrong to stand up for other underpaid workers? Perhaps you've heard of solidarity.

99% of the pro-Cliven Bundy protestors aren't Bundys. 100% of anti-abortion protestors weren't aborted.

Actually, this is kind of a fun game. [Doesn't prove a whit, but still, kinda fun]
Got a point.

Not to mention that protesting McDonald employees would be putting their jobs at risk if their supervisors recognized them.

I've been to Moral Mondays even though I am not a teacher or anyone else directly affected by the budget cuts. Like many others, I attend because I like living in a just world. I want everyone to have the medical care they need. I attend to represent those who are not able to be there.

Why? It's within their legal right. Are you suggesting that McDonalds employees would violate the law and seek retribution?

As for Erickson at least he can use English correctly, You used He's, a contraction for he is, must be a product of public education. Oh, and if you would do any research, you would find out the reason Palin resigned she was being sued into personal bankruptcy with frivolous lawsuits.
The same "rent a mobs" that toted guns and opposed Obamacare vehemently before it was passed.

I wouldn't have pointed it out, but you were trashing someone else for a small mistake.

I wonder if this guy would have mocked the Germans that were helping Jews escape during WW2. Great reporting does not include mocking those who stand with the disenfranchised.

Read the post I responded to.

BTW.....I think you missed a question I asked you.

How do you feel about Obama resigning his job.....since you felt it was wrong for Plain to do???

I think you're missing the irony. Rent a mobs are everywhere, and most protests are not what they appear to be on the surface.
