Most of the protesters seemed to be over 45, like this aging munchkin, and too tired to hold their signs up. (A few late 20s Socialist Workers Party members ran a literature table.) See how much empty lawn there is behind the munchkin. The SEIUers and NEAsters barely filled the inner circle around the fountain.
A very small crowd; SEIU national HQ is building on the left.
Well one of the seasoned citizens managed to hold her sign up. I wonder if they use that much energy when "teaching."

In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions. I went to Snopes to check this out and they said it was false and there were no such dockets so I ‘Googled’ the Supreme Court, typed in ‘Obama-Kagan,’ and guess what? Yep you got it. Snopes lied. Every one of those dockets is there. So here is what I wrote Snopes:
Referencing the article about Elena Kagan and Barack Obama dockets: The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Court’s website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking.
That being said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this.
Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them. Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics; and the beat goes on and on and on.
Once again the US Senate sold us out! Well, someone figured out why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course.
They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It’s all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there.
Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docket:
You can look up some of these hearings and guess what?? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!!!
Check out these examples:
If you are not interested in justice or in truth delete this.
However, if you hold sacred the freedoms granted to you by the U.S. Constitution…
By all means, please… PASS it ON!
“…There truly is tyranny afoot.”

In evidence of the dangers of the U.S. government's increasing "kill switch" powers regarding web servers inside the U.S., the Department of Justice and Homeland Security’s ICE last week essentially shut down 84,000 sites in a case of mistaken identity.
The shutdowns targeted mooo.com, the most popular shared domain at free web service provider FreeDNS. FreeDNS is a free domain service that is immensely popular among file sharers, blogs, small businesses, and other independent operators. Its homepage is afraid.org.
With the mooo.com shutdown last Friday, the ICE accidentally shut down 84,000 subdomain pages. The pages were all redirected to a banner that stated "Advertisement, distribution, transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography constitute federal crimes that carry penalties for first time offenders of up to 30 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine, forfeiture and restitution."
The court order to shut down and redirect the sites was granted via a seizure warrant from a District Court. The warrant was executed as part of the DHS ICE team's "Operation Save Our Children".
The key problem is that none of the sites thus identified under the mooo.com superdomain had child porn on them. They appear to have been the victim of an overzealous government police force with a bit too much power on its hands.
FreeDNS has expressed outrage. In a statement, they comment, "Freedns.afraid.org has never allowed this type of abuse of its DNS service. We are working to get the issue sorted as quickly as possible."
Over the weekend they managed to begin restoring some of the pages. Meanwhile small business owners were left to try to reassure customers that they were note engaging in illegal activity [source example].
The DHS is actually bragging about the takedowns citing 10 child porn sites that were taken offline, but conveniently forgetting to mention the 84,000 legitimate sites it also killed. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano states [press release]:
Each year, far too many children fall prey to sexual predators and all too often, these heinous acts are recorded in photos and on video and released on the Internet...DHS is committed to working with our law enforcement partners to shut down websites that promote child pornography to protect these children from further victimization.
The DHS has not yet released an official statement on the abuse of power. It also has yet to comment on whether it plans to compensate webpage owners for lost business or damage to their websites.
Website owners can still replicate the redirect by adding "18.104.22.168 mooo.com" to their hosts file.
