Curious...still *crickets* from the WH on OWS events today?
Edited on Tue Nov-15-11 03:06 PM by FirstLight
This week has been a fully funded, Department of Homeland Security Police Action... they are practicing on the occupiers, because they know that soon we will ALL be flooding the streets to redress our grievances.

this supercomittee thingy (unconstitutional appointments of lawmakers) could be the trigger
the euro flailing, and subsequent dollar crash, could be
someone actually being killed by police at a raid?...maybe

but meanwhile in the past few days, let alone weeks, we have seen a Marine VET who has suffered severe brain dammge, another man with a broken back, reporters denied access to film events, some arrested or peppersprayed...and so much more...

at what point does this call for SOME kind of comment from our Esteemed Commander in Chief?

Our rights are long gone, obviously...
but it steams me that the Administration is so eager to jump on International Television and make degrading comments about ANY other eegime who treats it's citizens like that...(even when they DON'T have a Bill of Rights to begin with) and yet in the face of this Concerted effort to SQUASH OWS across the COUNTRY ...nothing but *crickets*

(I guess I thought we voted for someone else...)

1. The White House is irrelevant. OWS has effectively made the President
All of his cronies, and all of his frenemies completely irrelevant.

2. true, in some ways
but if he is supposed to be this Nobel Peace Prize Winning negotiator with other countries...(like Libya, right?)...then what about our own?

this is not good, either way

22. True -- Obama and BOTH parties are finished ... however ... Obama Justice Dept involved in giving
logistical and tactical advice and support --

Homeland Secrity involved - -

This based on report by Michael Moore tonight on Olberman --

Michael also points to the obvious -- i.e., all tactics of police in dealing with OWS

have been the same --

Moore also suggests that we need to ask Obama WHY he is doing this --



WHY seems obvious -- Obama is Wall Street -- OWS is anti-Wall Street!!

"There Is No Honor In This".

20. I have no doubt...
that you're on the money. That so much "negative" stuff is being thrown unceremoniously into the dungeon tells you everything any of us needs to know to make us rightfully suspicious. Anyone failing to identify these signs is doomed to help us ALL sink into the quagmire ever faster and with frightening results. We in the north sink or swim as you do. Whither thou goest, we goest. I want you guys to peddle faster to the rescue cuz I don't like where yoose is taking us!!! :) Make that just a half :)

17. I though it was a good question. I referenced this JFK quote elsewhere, but
Edited on Tue Nov-15-11 05:12 PM by RKP5637
apparently it was not liked by some ...

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." ~ John F. Kennedy

27. Good Question? Hey Mods?
Why would you move this to the 9/11 forum? What possible connection does this OP have with 9/11?
