CHICAGO (AFP) Greenpeace activists were arrested Wednesday for scaling Mount Rushmore and hanging a banner next to the carved face of Abraham Lincoln urging President Barack Obama to get tough on climate change.

A video posted on the environmental group's website showed the massive banner hanging on the South Dakota mountain face.

Its message -- "America honors leaders not politicians: Stop Global Warming" and an unfinished portrait of Obama -- was barely visible as it was whipped by wind.

I hope they get charged with a federal crime. With a dipshit like Holder as A.G., I doubt it.

At the very least, it's trespassing on federal property.

I agree with the banner though. We need to stop Global warming. The best way to do that is to outlaw it. Global warming is illegal and anyone supporting it should go to jail. Start with Al Gore.

Way to bring violence to a non-violent protest.:rolleyes:

Change global warming to 'spending money' and I think most people would be okay with the banner.

Let's play the difference game. What's the difference between global warming and spending money? Easy. Spending money is real. Global warming is fantasy.

I think this global warming hoax is the single most dangerous tool the President has at this time. Carbon is the foundation for all life and activity. It means absolute control is possible!

Between funding for the illegals, the queers, the eco-nuts, M.J. and other stupid shit, CA is bankrupt. Dumb shits like you would rather put more taxes on every thing we buy with this cap and trade stupidity than drill for oil in the offshore area. Global warming is a farce.
