DNC Day Two: Out and About

Today I spent some time walking the streets of Denver taking in a view of the action. There are a lot of very excited people walking, biking, and driving around. I’ve put together this photo essay of the scene in Denver.

(CAUTION! Some DISTURBING images follow. No joke. If you don’t want to get sick, don’t scroll down.)

We’ll start with the nice ones…

A hybrid taxi service in sections of the city.

A solar-panel powered Humana freewheel!n free bike center.

The running tally the Humana folks are keeping at their distribution centers.

One of the anti-Obama Hummers that was circling the city. I found it peculiar that these supposed “Hillary support” vehicles were occupied entirely by young white men in pretty clothing. Young white wealthy men in Hummers doesn’t seem to me to be Hillary’s wheelhouse…. Republicans stirring up inner-party trouble? I think so.

A SWAT truck. One of many circling the streets. “Why SWAT” you ask? Likely because the following images stir people’s emotions rather negatively…. (You’ve been warned.)

Some anti-Obama Right-To-Lifers that are blanketing the city with these images. They also have megaphones.

They also have trucks.

Despite this type of horror-show, the mood in the city is civil and excited. People are friendly and quick to strike up conversation. It’s so far a great convention. Video to come….
