      Many common elements:
      Local phone tree disseminating "secret" police info
      Land grant activism
      Middle-management Hispanics walking that fine line
      Law enforcement zeal that outstrips their evidence

      PrezObama's only mistake in the sequester is that he assumed that the Republicans would be more loyal to their oath of office to serve the people than their oath to Norquist to never close tax loopholes.

        our reality-based writing cause all four of those items were part of my daily life for years. Nowadays, numbers two and four are not as immediate for me. I primarily work in health care now, and the FBI has shown less interest in local activists. The younger generation is less inclined toward fence cutting, truck torching, etc. On the positive side, there is a great deal of interest among many young people in cooperative farming.
