…and hurray for Ron Paul.
Where was the out rage about THIS you dirty mother-fuckers!!!
aura writes; Kudos to Stacie Herbert for her fantastic post. She is absolutely right when she points out the police state clamp down that took place in Pittsburgh at the G 20, which led to scores of arrest and injured and incarcerated citizens. Instead of condemning the actions of our own military and law enforcement agencies, our bought and paid for Congress condemns what they claim is a “brutal crackdown” in Iran. Talk about condemning your neighbor for having a speck in their eye while you have a beam in your own.
The images she posted were almost as bad as the torture photos from Abu Gharib.
Where was the outrage from OUR government, the supine media and the international community when from the police state tactics employed in Pittsburgh? And in Denver, an ABC news reporter was shoved into the street by a cop into oncoming traffic and violently arrested for having the audacity to stand on a public street and videotape lobbyists entering a Democratic fundraiser at a downtown Denver hotel. It really makes you sick to witness the expanding police state in the U.S. and almost wish there was no money left to finance the government’s over the top jack booted excesses, with its escalating brutality.
Have you heard the latest? Two cops pointed a gun through the drive thru window of a fast food worker because he minimum wage worker didn’t serve their food fast enough. The cop that brandished the gun is now on administrative leave WITH PAY and the other cop is STILL on the job. Makes you feel safe, doesn’t it?
Maybe if we are lucky, there will be a giant earthquake in California and at the same time the caldera beneath Yellowstone Park will erupt, taking out this whole corrupt Anglo, Dutch, American system with it. I would rather take my chances with Mother Nature than the corrupt leaders now in control of this government.
Obama “bearing witness” to what’s going on in Iran? So where the f*ck was he when this was going on in the US? Disneyland?
RNC convention police brutality.
Obama gives new meaning to the word hypocrite. He is a self important pathological liar who stood by and said nothing while protesters and innocent bystanders were arrested by police in military formation using brutal tactics during lawful assemblies in Denver and St. Paul.
Was he “bearing witness” to THIS too, when Denver police attacked peaceful protesters with pepper spray? Where were you then Obama? You knew what was going on in Denver, but you said nothing, and your silence spoke volumes. You don’t believe in the Constitution, because if you did you would have spoken out to protect and defend the rights of citizens to peacefully assemble. And were you “bearing witness” when this national news reporter was roughed up and arrested by Denver police for videotaping lobbyists entering a DNC fundraiser at a downtown hotel. Where were you Obama when the constitutional rights of the lawfully assembled were being violated right and left in Denver and St. Paul, when law abiding citizens exercising their constitutional rights were brutalized and arrested by police? You must have been there Obama, because you showed up for your coronation at a Denver stadium, but you said nothing because to you the Constitution is just a piece of paper and not a living document. No one heard a peep out of you then, Obama, you lying sell out.

Democracy Incorporated – A warning of creeping totalitarianism in U.S Managed Democracy and the Specter of Inverted Totalitarianism
By Sheldon S. Wolin
The hijacking of government by corporations has permitted the military-industrial complex (which, in a clever sleight of hand, is no longer considered part of the government) to bleed the country. “Big government may be the problem,” Wolin quips, “but military is the solution.” The social programs implanted by the New Deal have been reduced or eliminated as part of the “selective abdication of governmental responsibility for the well-being of the citizenry” under cover of cost-cutting and improving “efficiency.” The official U.S. defense budget for fiscal year 2008 is $623 billion. The next closest national military budget is China’s, at $65 billion, according to the Central Intelligence Agency. And yet, even in the midst of our economic collapse, the two main political parties refuse to challenge the right of the military-industrial complex to gorge itself on taxpayer dollars.
