    About 150 protesters marched through downtown Wichita on Saturday afternoon as activists from across the country gathered for the weekend “Occupy Koch Town” rally.

    Although the block-long line of protesters temporarily blocked several major intersections, the march was peaceful, and police made no arrests and issued no citations.

    The rally, which was organized by the Sierra Clubs of Kansas and Missouri and area Occupy movements, began about 2 p.m. at the Grand Chapel, 828 N. Broadway.
    Throughout the day, speakers addressed a variety of issues dealing with energy, environmental, climate policies and the controversial Keystone pipeline.


    Among those attending was Nick Brothers of St. Joseph, Mo., who said he had attended several other Occupy rallies, all of them peaceful.


    May the FORCE be with you!

    Yes isn't it though, sometimes you just want to hug them around the neck and squeeze the life out of them!:smile:
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Attendance was reported as "disappointedly small" as most anti-rich or envious hateful marchers were attending the simultaneous anti-Soros, Allen, Gates, and Buffet rallies.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
