  •  I agree with you, I was just thinking on the way (5+ / 0-)

    home this isn't like the 60's they are targeting us all, white,
    black, latino, everyone.  I don't think that Obama is trying
    to perpetuate it, but I've been wrong before.

    •  Yes which is why this is a genuine class war! (7+ / 0-)

      Rich vs. poor and they've been building their arsenal for decades politically, judicially (SCOTUS), legislatively, financially, in the media, and created and continue to dupe weak-minded individuals or haters to their cause like Teaparty nincompoops for example!

      As for President Obama I have to believe that since the DHS is an "agency" of the Fed that he is informed of what they're up to.  He needs plausible deniability which is why it's [crickets] from the Administration.  

      He wants to be re-elected, needs 1%ers money so the fix was in almost from the get-go and for certain after Citizen v. United became law of the land.

      We as a movement definately need to hang in there.  Regroup, get creative, keep it going and build it up stronger.

      Otherwise we, our children and our children's children are facing a third world lifestyle of misery.

      •  Don't worry. We aren't going away. We are (3+ / 0-)

        Americans.  This country was begun as a protest against abuses of authority.  The first ten Amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights - were written in response to threats of abuse of authority right here in America.  
        It's time to exercise those rights to see just how many of them have been compromised.  Those rights are our muscles - and if we don't exercise them occasionally, we become weak and atrophied.
        The time is NOW.
