  •  Moral Mondays (7+ / 0-)

    I was counting cameras while attending Moral Mondays.  You can not get in or out of the site withot being observed and you are on camera during the event.  Truly Orwellian.  I took my count during this meeting.  The theme for the day was supporting women's rights.  You can see the pink crowd.

        I have been around the block too many times to be intimidate by chickenshit assholes.  Should this man frighten me?

        I would enjoy engaging Pat.  He is not ready for what I bring to the party.  Macho fantasy continued in NCTim's mind.

          been there. when i was younger, being a larger sort of hippie, i was often asked to be a marshal at antiwar/antidraft demos (marshals stand between marchers, cops and counter demonstrators and keep them apart).  i've seen people like that close up.  watch out for the flecks of spittle, the bad breath and the peculiar odor that a body producing too much adrenaline gives off.

          no he shouldn't intimidate you.  your best bet is to impassively stare directly into his eyes and slowly raise one eyebrow, then give him a little smile.

            Maybe even blow a cork, and then calmly ask them to repeat themselves because I was not listening.  It does not hurt being a big old Polish American gym rat.
