Don't Wanna Be An American Idiot OR Protesting Porsche:
That's What's Wrong with this Country????

Thanks to Rainy Day Magazine for carrying our story, I was led to a brewing debate over the virtues of protesting on Pete's Boxster Board.

It turns out Dave R's protest stirred up quite the heated conversation on Pete's Boxster board. Funny how a little bit of peaceful civil disobedience can stir up so much emotion.

A character named Corey had the following pearls of wisdom to contribute:
"So basically she said she was protesting just to protest. and that is what's wrong with this country...Reminds me of an episode of the Penn and Teller show "Bullshit" on Showtime, where they got people at a protest to sign a paper for the banning of Di-Hydro Oxiginate, calling it the most corrosive substance on the earth and if you were immersed in it you'd die. After a few hundred signatures with no questions, they decided to spill the beans and tell people thanks for banning water...

BTW, how many of us would look at the "protesters" and say what idiots they are if they weren't protesting a boxster window, that many consider a wear item. Just get a new window sewn in it's only a few hundred bucks on a 50k car."
