State of the Police State

Pig shoots American hero attempting to comply with orders. Hopefully, this so called 'officer' will be locked up with all the criminals he has put away. He'll have a lot of time to reflect on his trigger finger while trying to avoid being shanked by all the thugs doing life, who hate dirty cops only slightly less than pedophilic priests. Thank God the cop couldn't shoot, and Elio survived.

Cindy Sheehan, invited to the SOTU by a California politician, was arrested before the President's address by police. Rep. Bill Young's wife was also told to leave. Both women were wearing t-shirts with war messages. Rep Young's wife's shirt said "Support the Troops Defending Our Freedom." Sheehan's shirt said "2245 Dead, How Many More?"

The archaic, unwritten, and unconstitutional charges against Sheehan of "demonstrating in the capital" were conveniently dropped after the TV cameras focused on the next big thing. The incident was given little MSM attention.

Instead of walking out in solidarity with the two women, democrats participated in the president's own political demonstration, at times applauding inane rhetoric and misleading characterizations of the war in Iraq. Democrats aspire to be the party of principle, but they have become spineless appeasers, afraid to stand up en masse when it really matters. I might be wasting my vote from now on, but a vote for either of the big two would be an even bigger waste. Watching the state of the union disgusted me. Bush disgusts me. Democrats disgust me. Send em all to Iraq. Every last smug, suited, swinging dick. Shit, send Hillary too. Strap em up with an M16 and turn em loose on the 'turrists'. Let them fight for freedom and democracy in Iraq, even as the concepts lose meaning at home. Freedom means letting them spy on us. Democracy means military occupation. What happens when the terrorists get elected? How does that fit into the neo-cons' vision of a democratic middle east? You want the state of the union, America? I'll give it to you--It's fucked. Unfucking it involves voting out as many career politicians as possible of both parties, impeaching the president, vice president, secretary of defense, and extraditing them to be tried as war criminals. I know it probably won't happen, but it's the right thing to do. America is not a facist nation. We don't attack other countries preemptively. That's the way it used to be, anyway.

Read this article if you still believe that President Bush gave America the straight scoop on Iraq before the invasion. Do you think he's giving you the truth now? Or maybe they're all just concerned with the upcoming elections. They should be. Vote out the corrupt. Vote out career politicians. Vote out spineless democrats. Vote out warmongering Republicans. Vote out the facists, or America is doomed. Bush's grandaddy made his money pandering to the Nazis. Bush made his money pandering to the people who attacked us on Sept 11. We are "a nation addicted to oil", and Bush is the pusher man.

I remember just recently speaking to a relative about the situation in Iraq and this country.

She is highly intelligent, well she made straight As in high school and college, and wanted to know, since I am a veteran and used to be in MI, what we should do.

I told her first we need to kick all the incumbants out of office.

Her reply, "What is an incumbant."

My point is that most Americans do not know what the hell is going on even if it is biting them in the ass.

ovv,

The paragraphs dealing with the T shirt incidents read as if these two women were treated in the same manner.

Ms. Sheehan was removed from the gallery before the SOTU address. She was then handcuffed, booked, fingerprinted & deposited in a jail cell. Charges against her were subsequently dropped.

By Ms. Young's account, she was asked to leave during the address, but was never charged or hauled downtown.

Rep. Young later decried the treatment of his patriotic wife, but stated he was perfectly fine with the treatment of that trouble-making Ms. Sheehan.

There's also another one somewhere that has captioning under it, but it doesn't show the entire thing.

thanks, mel, for pointing that out-- the sources I read did not really make that distinction clear. Thanks to those who located the video.

That BONO video... I am alternately astounded by how starved the sanctimonious are for the truth of what Jesus said, about the poor, and about the vulnerable.... and nauseated by the gratefulness bestowed upon GWB...

Ole blue drove home the nail,"my point is that most Americans do not know what the hell is going on even if it is biting them in the ass." It seems they watch these speeches dumbstruck,and have no courage to vote out these idiots.
