Because I no longer want my tax dollars spent defending people who think this way...
From KGO-TV in S.F.:
Jun. 8 - KGO - Three local peace groups and a San Francisco supervisor are working on a plan to end the Blue Angels flight shows over the city.
The Blue Angels navy fighter pilots usually perform during Fleet Week in October.
The event adds about $4 million dollars to the local economy but critics say the flyovers are a public safety risk and create air and noise pollution.
The groups Code Pink, Global Exchange, and Veterans for Peace are working with Supervisor Chris Daly on a resolution that would ban the event.
Let these "people" defend themselves.

McQ at QandO nails it...
"Public safety, air pollution and fuel waste. Well heck, those sound like perfect reasons to shut down the airport there. Heck one of those big old fuel wasting air polluters could fall out of the sky and hit a CodePink demonstration being held for some other inane and stupid reason.
Wouldn't want that would we?"
