The World Can’t Wait demonstration in LA was very disappointing. Not many people, just the hard-cores. Young hard-cores. I was one of the oldest farts there.
A large group brought fake, flag draped coffins. When the Channel 11 Fox TV crew showed-up they recieved a twenty-minute chorus of about two-hundred or more people, chanting, no, screaming, F*** Y***!!! Over and over. That’s when I got bored and wandered off.
There were no arrests that I saw, although there was a LOT of cops standing around, riding motorcycles, driving patrol cars and I saw some officers on horseback. They seemed to have been told to hang-back unless it got too weird. It didn’t get weird enough for me.
I gotta think people are too scared to come out for these things anymore, after that draconian bill they just passed. Another reason I believe that, is because my sales have gone flat since then. I have ONE sale this month. Thanks Brian! I usually get at least one or two sales a day, sometimes more. This is pretty ominous. Used-up most of my savings on month-end bills.
I was very disappointed at the low turnout. I also have some questions regarding the authenticity of whomever put this on, or should I say, didn’t put this on. I noticed most everyone there wore black. I found-out after the fact, that the event organizers requested people to wear black and I remember reading somewhere that that’s done to help the feds identify protestors. At the World Can’t Wait in another town, the people were asked to wear red.
Right now I’m pretty disappointed in my fellow Americans and I’m wondering if fake-fear will run me out of business.
It’s all fake, you know.
