    Love the whole "Artists Against Hate" thing. Are these the same artists who berated Pence in front of his wife and children during the Hamilton show in November? Anyway, this is a good list of businesses who I will avoid the next 4 years.

    "As the date draws closer for what is expected to be one of the largest demonstrations in Washington, D.C. in recent times,..."

    Except, of course, for the annual pro-life March for Life that has taken place in Washington since 1974, that the main stream media never reports on or covers...

    From Wikipedia: "Between 2003 and 2009, the march had an attendance of around 250,000, but this number has since increased. The 2011 and 2012 marches drew an estimated 400,000 each, the 2013 march drew an estimated 650,000."

    Even with an impending blizzard last year, 2016, the estimate of marchers was 250,000.

    But I bet most of you never even knew it happened...

    No bias in the media. No, none at all.

  • How cute, more sore winning. Unfortunately for you, the mainstream media does cover that march of lying hypocritical bigoted "Christians."

  • jaye els Returned to Hyde Park Kenwood

    Can these Illinois women please "March" all the useless Lib Leftist women pols of this town/state

    Tammy Duckworth, Tonnie P, Kim Fox, Loretta Linch - can they march out of our state/city and never come back?

    How about we get some real men to lead this down and expel all the gang members, illegal alien cartel members?
