2008 Democratic National Convention

Well, it seems that all parties concerned are ready for the Big Event this coming weekend.  I speak of the Democratic National Convention. The 2008 Democratic National Convention will be held from August 25 to August 27 at Pepsi Center and on August 28 at INVESCO Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

And guess what? The battle lines have been drawn and the war room command centers are ready!!! Everyone from Activist to Lawyers. From Intelligence Agencies to the Military. Police and security companies. No doubt the city hospitals are already gearing for Emergency Mode.
They even have “The Siege” Styled confinement area’s for the many arrest they anticipate. No doubt this will be a logistical nightmare for the Denver city fathers.

Here are the various links dealing with this upcoming event:
