Velkom to Police, USA — Some welcome; Not all
How can so many OWS be hauled off the public streets for their mostly peaceful protest against big money, big business, few opportunities for most Americans. Still others sit in jail, while zero bankers and others who caused the 2008 mess buy more mansions, yachts, pad their pensions, and enjoy the good like (many via bailout money from the taxpayers now protesting. Then add in the TEA "party" - the so-called "Patriots - hell bent to take back the country. They are all do-gooders, they say. They disrupt public meetings, shout down elected officials, or worse, and hoist nasty signs in public, wear all sorts of guns in plain sight, and yet they are the "good Americans" just trying to save the country.
Sample from Boston:
• Boston is the latest in a string of cities where officials have moved to oust protesters demonstrating against what they call corporate greed and economic injustice.
• As the officers moved in, about two dozen demonstrators linked arms and sat down in nonviolent protest and police soon began arresting them, according to the Boston Globe.
• The protesters were "very accommodating" to the officers. Forty-six people were arrested on charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct, police said. No injuries were reported.
• The entire operation lasted less than an hour. Crews then entered the area to begin cleaning it.
What is wrong with this picture? I don't get it; do you? So, what to expect next. Look up on the sky. What's that? It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's Superman. No, it's not. It's a sky full of Drones (coming soon to a neighborhood near you). They will probably be operated by the law or as some want, in the hands of private contractors (you know, all those job creators). And, of course, they will be owned by Halliburton, Blackwater (Xe), or God knows who else who wants a piece of that growing industry. Don't look up, but if you do, remember to smile and say "cheese" — "You'll be on candid camera."
Are things in our country ass-backwards, or what?
