Waiting for a revolution

So, yesterday, "riots" in Miami. Protesters were gathered in Miami, about 10,000 people, to speak out against the FTAA. My mother was down there since most of the protesters on Thursday were Union workers. Thankfully she left before all hell broke loose. The tear gas, rubber bullets and billy clubs were used in full force against these people. Reports have said that police issued a verbal warning for everyone to move back. No one heard this. Police then responded with force to move people back. That's when everything went haywire.

I was arguing with someone that the police overreacted. I was told that they reacted as they were supposed to. I didn't know that they were supposed to break up a peaceable assembly with violence. I guess I missed that day in school when they talked about that. I didn't know that middle aged, middle class people were so evil that they needed to be shot repeatedly with rubber bullets.

It's time people. It's time to take back the country. Start by calling your local political organization, be it Libertarian, Democrat or whatever you want. Join up, start running for office people. It's time to take back what is ours. What is for the people by the people and of the people (that's out of order, isn't it?).

I actually heard someone say, "Well, they shouldn't have been down there. They were asking for it. As long as my QVC comes in, I'm okay."

It's nice to know that some people can be soothed by their consumerism, but not me, and I'm sure not any of you. Let's go!!

P.S. My mom is okay, she was on the bus before everything started going down. Thank Allah for small favors.
