Has anyone heard about the protester pen set up at the Democratic convention?
Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.
It's constructed with mesh, chain link & razor wire to contain any DNC protesters - not after they've been rounded up by police for unlawful activity - but to house them while they are protesting!

"U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock called the barbed-wire pen "an affront to free expression'' and "irrefutably sad'' but necessary because of protesters' antics in New York and Los Angeles."

Story here.

And this is the Democratic convention.

I've got a really bad feeling about this.

``The federal government does have some specific information about incidents that may occur,'' Assistant U.S. Attorney George Henderson told the court.


What a crock. Now our rights are trampled because of something the Federal Government says. Like the Federal Goverment has one ounce of credibility. Whatever happened to the right of due process? Now if some Assistant U.S. Attorney says he has some secret "specific information", then anyone can be an enemy of the state.

Sheesh... It makes me think the wrong side won the Civil War. Shocked Sure slavery is wrong, but the Federal Government ain't much better. Evil or Very Mad

This is outrageous. They're even banning informational tables because they could possibly be used as weapons.

Land of the free and home of the brave, my ass.

Yes, about two years ago I realized that it is a myth that America is a free courntry. Recently two things have greatly reinforced my opinion.

1) I spent a week in The Netherlands.

2) I hung out with a young black musician from Philadelphia for a weekend. Listening to his stories of life with the police made me realize that freedom is a word that has lost its meaning in the USA.

So... what is wrong? What is happening over there?

From here it seems that you guys are on your way to wake up in the People´s Republic of The United States of America.. or rather .. Arbeitslager Amerika....

what's happening is we have a bunch of snot-nosed brats running the country. You know, the kids in elementary school that always tried to get their way but it never worked 'cuz they weren't big enough to be bullies. When U.S. soldiers are asking for the resignation of the seceratary of defense it can't be long before this little coup fails. Fewer and fewer people are buying into the bull-crap so inarticulately spewed by the corporate media. We're waking up. That's what's happening.

Some of you may recall your history of Russia *grin*

Stalin began inserting his powerbase in the same manner as our modernly dubbed "homepland security", but he used a different name for it. Then, one day, he began "deleting" people.

What is the most surefire way to make people believe they need marshal law? Convince them they need protection. Cannot find an enemy? Fabricate one. The Romans did it. Bonaparte did it. Hell, it is the best thing since sliced bread to the tactically inclined.

Does this mean the "voting booth" will be fascist in nature? Well, that is if the current president even allows the election to go forward unsuspended. I believe a show is being made for us all, then wham, they will postone or even cancel them.

Was it not Senator Palpatine. from Star Wars mysthology, who said: "I promise to return all authority granted me from these emergency powers, once the crisis has ended". But he never did, did he?
