This Congress has been hideous and should go hide their faces if they had any shame.
I definitely agree. It is frustrating beyond words.

To be honest does anyone ever get the impression that this is all window dressing to test public opinion or the state of the public's capacity for mobilisation?
The whole aftermath of 9/11 revealed the extent to which some of the political establishment in the US was willing to use it as a new "foundation myth" and throw over all that had existed prior to that, launching wars and restructuring the US and world status quo, they lost momentum and its only lucky that they did.
Jericho is a fantastic fictional look at what could happen in the US, I believe, I know lots of people hated it when the show was concluded with a departure from small town politics and survivalism towards a more 24 like storyline (particularly when a similar private interests attempting to hijack the government storyline was playing out in 24 at the time) but I thought that was the logical progression of the story which had begun in the first part of the series.
The combinations of state and capital and ruling class in the US are obvious to everyone but what you going to do? There's no real opposition to it, if it emerges its quickly co-opted or neutralised, what is treated as credible alternatives by most of the US population, ie libertarians like Ron Paul, will objectively only strengthen the hand of the same state-corporate nexus. Its not a new thing either. Jefferson complained about the plutocracy of private interests jeopardising the republic back in his day.
Seriously, has anyone heard this, the US senate just passed a bill that would allow the president/or government to use the military to detain any US citizen without due process or any charges at all, just based on pure suspicion, they have declared america a battlefield. This is susposed to "protect" us from "terrorist" huh........lol at the politicians trying to get military protection from the soon to be angry masses.
That is exatcly what it is. The occupy protests will only grow with common dreads. They will swim as one in solidarity, no longer tready water, just flowing with the tide. And you can taste it. "it;s a song supporting this movement" Enter shikari is all about this
I don't know what will come about this, there deffinitly needs to be change. I knew the day would come when they would act about this. They always talked about "homegrown " terrorists in the news. The term Terrorist is a funny one, in that anyone can be considered one. In fact, i am probably being suspiciouse right now talking in a manner against the government.
I wonder what constitutes a suspision, does views in anyway shape or form against the government cause suspision? does me writing this right now cause suspision?fuck lol. These things i will never get i dont know why i think about it
To everyone who voted Obama (well, actually anybody other than Ron Paul), I hate to say I told you so but here are the fruits of your rewards. Congratulations on re-electing George Bush III enjoy! No worries, McCain would have done the same so I won't hold it against you! How is Ron Paul not in office already?
