It's true: I was in Seattle "in support of free trade."

That would be in uniform and "opposed to those who were not."  Just providing back-up, though!  And in my defense "my girlfriend was a democrat" who probably knew half the guys who were "in the crosshairs" as they say.  As it was "it was only the shop-keepers" as Napoleon called them "that suffered."
