Since Obama took office in 2009. All of a sudden? These ""peace crusaders"" are nowhere to be found!

@ChainsawNbud: Dude? You be joking, yes? Look at Sheryl Crow! And her nipples! I think that`s a VERY nice picture! Of her nipples.
So does @Drawman61 :-)

ONLY #11 (Jessica Lang) is "unflattering". The rest are exactly how they actually look! Without makeup? Where? 1,9,11,12 &14 all have their makeup on (the featured women).

Sheesh! No pleasing some folks...

I know exactly where an article like this is going (or rather, where it`s coming from) as soon as I see purposely chosen pictures of actors/actresses without makeup, in normal everyday clothes, in less than flattering poses.

@poonoodle: You`ve "missed the entire point" here.

They PRETENDED to be "fighting for PEACE".
In REALITY they were simply "anti-Republican".

The minute a Democrat was responsible for ALL THE THINGS THEY PROTESTED AGAINST?
War
Invasion(s)
Drones
Rendition
NSA
Guantanamo
& etc?

2009 = Silence.
The situation(s) did not change, only the political party. Ok? Get it? Good.

I can`t argue with the point of the article, but I think it`s funny when someone thinks that people blindly rooting for their team is only a problem for the other side.

Also, drawman61 has the only well thought out comment in this thread.

C`mon, give `em a break. They`re liberals, for cryin` out loud! You don`t expect them to have actual principles, do you?

Well, let`s see, we have (essentially) gotten out of Iraq and Afghanistan and haven`t put boots on the ground in any other country. So, all of a sudden? No, sounds like we aren`t engaged all that heavily in "war" right now. Of course, if you want them to protest what were supposedly going to be "unbelievably minor" offensives against Syria, if you want to see 100K people protesting that, you didn`t understand what the protests about Iraq and Afghanistan were in the first place.

And I still don`t think we should involve ourselves in Syria, but, come on, 5Cats, you`re better than this.

"A closed mind is a closed mind."
@patchouly: The word "ironic"? Perhaps you should look that up...

"using celebrity pretty loosely there"
@skypirate: ??? Those are HUGE stars of film and music. Bonnie Raitt and Mike Farrel are in the pictures too! ALL were HUGE Obama supporters, coincidence?

@Andrew155: I noticed how the "daily body count" and pictures of those killed SUDDENLY vanished from the MSM entirely! Right around Nov 2008... *poof*

@CodeJockey: I mean protesting against:
- The surge in Afghanistan
- The invasion of Libya
- The (proposed) invasion of Syria

They... are... silent!

@RoboPatton: It`s "not news" if it harms Obama! Nice article!

@WhoDat: True, but they are "popular" and have a vast apparatus to get THEIR OPINIONS known to the masses, eh? It`s how things have been running for 3,000 years.

They`l kick off when the war does. If it`s not trendy yet, don`t expect celebs.

One of the last lines of this puts everything in perspective. If you disagree with anything Obama does you are anti-black so just go along for the ride and apparently vote white next time if you want to disagree with the president.

jdwadjda - Pretty much. We shouldn`t care about the celebrities and what they think, but the fact is that they are an integral part of the "Zeitgeist" - the spirit of the times. We can extend this to others, like comedians and what jokes they tell, who they go after. All of this stuff affects popular opinion and the narrative on what`s going on.

I would agree 100% but tell that to the idiots that hang on every word out of someone like Justin Bieber`s mouth for example.

He may not have gotten political but he`s a prime example of a celebrity being worshiped by a lot of their fans no matter what they say.

Anyone that relies on the opinion of a celebrity to influence their stance on an issue or how they vote is an idiot. They`re entertainers, not politicians.

Oh, I dont know 5Cats, maybe the same reason why the "News" reported US Soldiers deaths EVERY DAY 5 years ago, even though most casualites of the Afghan war have been under Obummer.

"Has anyone noticed how the wars became far far less pressing in 2009, suddenly?"
No, they haven`t. Personal sentiment is about the same.
-Goals were set for Iraq, which were met.
-Goals were set for Afghanistan which have not been completely met.

We noticed already.

The continued presence in Afghanistan should only be at the request of the government there. As far as I know, every time the US has set a pull out date, the government there has gone to the world stage and said it was being abandoned.

Transversely, aiding the Syrian rebels would result in a government that owed debts to the same people being fought in Afghanistan.
On top of that, they`d have access to >>whatever weapons the current government has hidden.<<
That is why NO ONE should get involved. The winner of the revolution will likely be a problem later.

For the same reasons Ted Nugent and Chuck Norris will stop crying when the party controlling the executive branch switches again.

Has anyone noticed how the wars became far far less pressing in 2009, suddenly? I mean, even after Obama surged Afghanistan (his own escalation on his own time), the environment in this country has no resemblance to those days of 2006 and 2007 where you could feel the anti-war sentiment in the air.

Did you know that in June 2010, we lost a hundred soldiers in one month? 2/3 of the Afghanistan casualties have been since 2009. Our British friends have even lost 400 soldiers there, with over 100 in both 2009 and 2010 alone. 160 Canadians. Almost a hundred French, and even five Swedes, and so forth.

But it suddenly stopped being such a pressing matter in 2009. It`s even hard to come buy a daily body counter these days, I remember the paper back in 2006 had a daily running of one of those. It`s revealing.

Patchouly - What? That makes no sense. Obama is president.


Plus, Ed Asner just said something really really dumb, "Our whole history of regime change has been people of different color". No?? I know history very well, and that`s untrue. Considering white people are about 15% of the world, it would make sense that 85% of our enemies should be non-white, if everything is equal. However, I would even say a disproportionate amount of our enemies have been white.

If we`re just talking relatively recent history:

Milosevic in Serbia is a pretty obvious one. Involvements in Kosovo, Bosnia....come on.
Hitler?
Mussolini?
You can probably count the Soviet Union and the whole of Eastern Europe, given our maniacal obsession with destroying Totalitarian Communism.

Holy shiite, not everything is about race.

Probably because they are fed up with the right wing nut jobs and are realizing there is just no way to get through to them. A closed mind is a closed mind.

No they were not anti-war just anti-Bush.
