In my backyard... Democrats banned

Apparently you are not allowed to join in an open forum with the President of the FREE NATION if you wear a shirt that says "Young Democrat".

From the UofA Campus News:

"UA Young Democrat Steven Gerner, a political science and pre-pharmacy sophomore, said he and three other Young Democrats had been waiting in line with their tickets for about 40 minutes when a staff member approached him and asked to read his T-shirt.

Gerner was the only one of the four wearing a UAYD T-shirt, which read, "Don't be a smart (image of a donkey, the Democratic Party symbol). UA Young Democrats."

Gerner said the staffer, who refused to provide his name, asked for Gerner's ticket and crumpled it up.

The staffer walked away, returned in 20 minutes, and told Gerner his name had been added to a list banning him from entering the convention center for the speech."

And of course, never NEVER NEVER throw eggs at the President's motorcade. He might want an omlette.

"A 13-year-old girl was arrested after she threw an egg at the motorcade. Three police officers, after observing the girl's aunt whisper something in her ear and then seeing the girl launch the egg, rushed the two and dragged them across the street, where they were both handcuffed.

It is unknown whether the egg hit the motorcade or not, reports stated. "

Now, it is obvious that the aunt put the girl up to it. HOWEVER, they could have removed them withOUT handcuffing them, especially a 13 year old. Of course, it is Arizona, she might have been carrying a gun... pfft!

How are we supposed to be sold on this Social Security fiasco, if we're not allowed to see the plan? What planet am I ON?
