Peace Activists Arrested in Huckleberry's Des Moines Office

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Three protesters seeking a commitment from Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee to end the Iraq war were arrested Monday for refusing to leave his office.

Police arrested Mona Shaw, 56, of Iowa City; Robert Braam, 51, Manhattan, Ill.; and Kathy Kelly, 55, of Chicago, around 1:20 p.m., Shaw said. They were charged with criminal trespass.

Des Moines police spokesman Vince Valdez said the three were taken into custody without violence and released.
Has anyone else noticed that you never ever hear any of the Repignofascist candidates talking about substantive issues like ending the illegal occupation of Iraq, or reducing the 9 Trillion dollar national debt, or improving the nation's infrastructure? Nope? You havnen't either? All I hear them talking about is non-issues like "god" or how horrible immigrants are (forgetting that every damned one of them is the product of an immigrant) or how wonderful it was that Britney Spears 16 year old daughter decided to keep her child.

Never do these bastards discuss whats really important - only what will rile up the base and get them out to the polls.

Wake up sheeple.
