289 Million Americans Avoid Peace Rallies
(2003-01-19) -- Police across the nation estimate the crowd that avoided recent anti-occupation demonstrations at about 289 million. Americans from coast-to-coast voted in absentia against criticizing the Bush administration for rebuilding Iraq's future and killing Islamic terrorists daily..
Anti-anti-occupation demonstrators gathered in grocery stores, shopping malls and private homes to proclaim their disagreement with protestors marching in the streets of Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
"Going about my regular Saturday routine is my way of saying I disagree with the radical left-wing agenda of the anti-Bush crowd," said college student Melanie Sampson, who spent the day preparing a term paper for a literature course.
Police reported no unusual problems with the droves that stayed away from the protests.
"It was a normal Sunday in America," said one Sheriff's deputy.
