    I got to Pershing Square early for the Los Angeles march and left at about 10:00 am getting to my car in about an hour going to opposite way of the other pedestrians. I had a previous commitment with tickets purchased last year.
    In the short time I was there I spoke with nuns and a troop of Girl Scouts and their leader. I met a Trump supporter with his wife and son. She didn't vote for President Trump. He said to me, "I can tell you are not a Trump supporter."
    I told him, "I hope he surprises me and becomes a great president. I want him to succeed. I pray for that"
    I am pro life and did not think I was unwelcome. We do have freedom of speech. Most liberals respect that. Other just disagree or get angry. That is human nature.
    Hundreds of thousands gather downtown for Women's March Los Angeles
    ... The organizers stressed that the event was non-partisan and not a protest, but a "celebration of human rights.''
    The mission statement for the march read, in part, "We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.''
    That spirit was borne out by peaceful crowds singing "This Land Is Our Land'' and a general air of exuberance despite the pedestrian gridlock downtown...

    I support any peaceful protest. It sounds like the various women's marches could serve as a good example for others such as the anarchists who destroy property or some BLM groups who block traffic.

    Perhaps your time would have better been spent organizing these people to vote in the last election, instead of destroying public property.

    You, my dear, are the reason we marched.

    as long as you don't have young kids so they could hear the F-word constantly from some of the speakers.

    No property was destroyed during any of the marches. And we did vote...3 million more of us voted for Clinton than for Trump. Stop getting your information from Breitbart.

    That's funny then why isn't Hillary president? That's right she didn't know she had to get votes from places besides California and New York. Typical liberals leaving all their trash behind for others to clean up.

    You are one angry person. I feel sorry for you, to be filled with so much vitriol and hate.
    The posters were left as a message-not dumped as trash.

    Why are you under the impression that the protesters didn't vote?

    Pretty much all conservative right wing web sites are making a bit to do about the messes left behind. The old "let someone else clean up their mess, typical liberals" is something I've seen ad nauseum. Don't have much more to say do they?

    Our March here was relatively clean because it was only 20,000 people (they expected only a few thousands). I know I was there and paid attention. When Pride is here and there are 200,000 people the mess behind is disgusting.

    The speeches were very clean without profanity here in St. Petersburg.

    Madonna's speech with the f-bombs and her homophobic slur about oral sex, etc. was disgusting.

    Interesting that's all that have to say. That and the "where were they when voting" as if they took a poll of the people there. I would venture to say that 99.9999% of those protesting yesterday, myself included, voted. In fact 54% of people didn't vote for Trump.

    What in heck were you watching, Fox news? The folks who turned at the rally I attended included men, women, toddlers, babies, the old, young and middle-aged.

    If you it makes you feel better to dismiss the protesters in the manner you described, so be it. But know it just isn't the truth.

    I understand truth is something the new administration has a problem with whenever it doesn't suit them. But when a falsehood is presented as truth, I WILL correct it.
    Ackshully, the piece I read on foxnews.com was remarkably even-handed and free of "alternative facts". Breitbart.com and WND.com, on the other hand, ran predictably silly hit pieces that had more to do with their own fear-ridden fantasies than anything that really happened. Then again, considering the anemic showing at the inauguration, it could well be just a severe case of sour grapes.

    I read today that Trump asked why the demonstrators didn't vote. I think it's highly likely that most of those who were eligible did vote. That nearly 3 million plurality in the popular vote came from somewhere.

    Demonstrations of any kind are exactly that: street theater intended to make peoples' attitudes and principles highly visible. The Women's March demonstrated that the majority of my fellow citizens do not agree with either the inhumane ruling party or the violent anarchist "disrupters". Alternative facts won't change that reality.

    I'm more hopeful than ever.

    Take out LA and SFO counties, that 3 million goes down to 1.

    I'm sure Trump would have made up ground in many places if the popular vote was the ultimate goal.

    Nevermind, It seems you were just reposting a Trump tweet.

    Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.

    I don't necessarily agree with all of the protesters points, but I fully support their right to express their views, and I have to disagree with both you and Trump on the suggestion that this right only exists through voting.
