Who's Sorry Now?
-The GOP is losing voters
-The Progressives didn't see it coming
-We should all be sorry that the MSM is NOT carrying any of this in any meaningful way.
-What's a cause gotta do to get on TV these days, anyway?
The Left sure could learn something from the Immigration organizers. This is the envy of any social activism....hundreds of thousands of peaceful demonstrators (who, btw, have ditched the controversial Mexican flags and only carry American), no violence. Would be good if progressives could do likewise for causes that matter to them..... 500,000 in Dallas; 50,000 in San Diego
"Shouting "Si Se Puede!" — Spanish for "Yes, we can!" — the marchers crammed into the downtown streets. They included families pushing strollers with their children and ice cream vendors who placed American flags on their carts. Many wore white clothing to symbolize peace. Police estimated the crowd at 350,000 to 500,000. There were no reports of violence. It was among several demonstrations that drew thousands of protester Sunday in New Mexico, Minnesota, Michigan, Alabama, Utah, Oregon and California."

US immigrants mobilizing for major 'action'
Events are planned Monday in 90 cities to show immigrant strength - Latino and other.
"In Los Angeles, Eun Sook Lee will march on behalf of Korean illegal immigrants, at least 50,000, living in southern California. On Boston Common, Punam Rogers will join other Indian émigrés, as well as business clients and students from China, Germany, and Britain. In Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Ivalier Duvra will take to the streets to draw attention to Haitian newcomers who he says need refugee status. "
