UT Daily Texan 'Hundreds Gather in Austin for "Million Musician March" to Protest Iraq War' (Austin liberals advance media action line to bash Bush)

Travis County and Austin protested over the weekend about the war in Iraq. The only problem was -- protest marches across America failed miserably, yet since the protesters advanced the action line of the media, the media welcomed even the smallest protest with open arms.

In a UT Daily Texan news story today, "Musicians march, play to protest war in Iraq," literally "hundreds of people gathered Saturday in downtown Austin" in what was supposed to be a "Million Musician March," in "which participants brought their musical instruments" in hopes of playing "When Johnny Coming Marching Home."

"Protesters chanted "Bush lied, and thousands died" as they arrived at Austin's City Hall. The highlight of the parade was "two women dressed entirely in purple carrying a 4-by-4-foot origami crane."

The liberal UT reporter Kevin M. Callahan hyped his story as much as he could by invoking the D-word -- "draft." He wrote passionately of "Austin resident Steve Stratakos" who was afraid of his son Johnny someday being drafted to fight Bush's liberally illegal war.

Incredibly, some stupid people who attended came "from other states came down to show their support. Some made the trip from as far as the West Coast. One worthless protester said, "We came all the way from Alaska," and made one wonder how he polluted the environment on his way to Texas. Was it by polluting the upper atmosphere via a plane, or by polluting the Alcan Highway by taking away wildlifes breathable air by using a motor vehicle.

Of course, to make the event complete, you had the worthless al-Qaeda loving organizations such as "CodePink Austin, a self-described women's grass-roots peace and social justice movement."

That's Travis County for you, the only county in the state to vote for gay marriage. I'm ashamed I have relatives in Austin.

Screw the libs!

things must be going slow in houston for liberal hater to go to austin for comments
Liberals cannot stand one more death in Iraq but they accept death everywhere else.
Afghan Man Faces Death for Allegedly Converting to Christianity

This bloody crazy...
Easy, the US should reciprocate law and make it illegial for Christians to convert to islam, punishable by death of course.

In addition, we should bring back the old Blue Laws which restricted the sale of goods on Sundays, so we can be more sensitive to the needs of the muslims.

Tongue in cheek.
The Blue Laws were made by Christians or did the religious fervent forget that?

Well, that was long go, right? Joel Osteen has to sell his books. Wouldn't want a man of God driving something other than a Mercedes or a Porsche or living in a home that couldn't be classified a mansion.
The Blue Laws are only still effective for the car dealerships in Texas. Hence, you can't buy a new car on Sunday.

And don't worry about rich men of God. They can't take their riches with 'em when they die.
You missed my point, how seriously do you take someone that calls himself a man of God when it appears he is using his position to make himself rich. Wouldn't a true man of God, not care if he drove a Porsche or lived in mansion--his true wealth would be in the people he helped.

I just get the feeling that Osteen is another Jim Baker--ripping off the old and the weak for his own interests.

If that is the case, I hope he does have to answer for it in the end and maybe sooner.

Baker did.
I got your point. I'm not particularly fond of TV preachers.

I have a little more respect for Joel Osteen than I do others who try and be like Christ and heal people right in front of everyone.

Osteen reaches out to people and encourages them to be better people in their everyday lives, and he puts people at ease, repsects them.

I know that preachers can't get their message out without funding. Obviously, some overdoit when it comes to paying themselves and spending extravagently, but like I said before, the can't tkae it with them when they die and stand in front of God to be judged in doing the Lord's Work.
Your last line is correct, but in no way should that guy be idolized in my opinion. That liberal media source known as the Chronicle ran a story about him on the front page the other day.

I've sone some research into his church and they rarely do much for charity. It seems most of the money goes back into the church and his pockets.

I don't know about that. I'm more about people like Mother Teresa than Joel Osteen.

I understand he has a family to provide for, but there is a difference between "needs" and "wants."
Please check your Bible on how "Greed" and "self-aggrandizing behavior" is referred to in a religious sense.
I'm not a member of Osteen's congregation, I'm Catholic, but I remember Osteen's church opening up their doors to flood and hurricane survivors.

They could probably do some more everyday charity, and they may do.

But if he doesn't do enough charity in your opinion, call him on it. Start a blog specializing on Osteen or call him and ask for a balance sheet of church funding or something.

I'm Catholic too. I went to Catholic School as a kid and he doesn't fit the ideals I was raised under.

Sure, his church helped with Katrina but so did just about everyone.

That was a special situation. On a day-to day basis, take my word--they don't do much. I've checked it out and even asked for their comments on it which they declined.

That's alright though. I'll keep digging and publish it in the Chronicle or another news source.

I hate to tell you this but, blogs really have no credibility.

I'm a reporter. I reported what I saw. I sure as hell did not include my personal views. Now that I am no longer a member of the Daily Texan or the press corps, I will be happy to tell you my views of the war, and it isn't as liberal as you apparently think it is.
