RNC 2008 - Cut The Pork

Rice Park, a location I have posted many photos from in my two and a half years of Twin Cities Daily Photos, became the scene of the MSNBC live studio broadcast during the RNC 2008. One could have spent all week taking photos of all of the "Protests Of One" that were on display. The costumes and signs were outstanding to say the least. In the next few days, I'll post photos of some of my favorites. While I personally don't agree with many of the messages, I found their means of attention worthy of a photo to my blog.

These two, dressed in, attention gathering, fabulous pink pig suits, while holding signs to 'Tax Meat'. Quoted from their website:
PETA is calling on members of Congress to support a "sin" tax on meat. Why? Among other reasons, meat is the number one cause of global warming, a looming environmental disaster that threatens the United States with billions of dollars in damages from rising sea levels, worsening storms, and increased droughts.
When I read this on their web site that [eating] "meat is the number one cause of global warming', it made me wonder, is this true? So it's not the automobiles we drive that are causing global warming? Thank goodness. So many causes are now claiming to be the number one cause, it's beyond laughable at this point to me.

I do appreciate the effort they took for this, even if I do not agree with the message. Sorry.
