Obama wants a new Delcaration of Independence.
And then there is this call to make it possible for 3rd Obama term .
And he hasn't even been sworn in yet. YIKES.
There's the 'change' we've been looking for. :shk:

But of course the whole reason for the switch is to free up analog signals for police, fire and rescue right? Now I live in a small city and despite failing under five police jurisdictions (city, township, county, state and campus police departments) we haven't added any new departments that would require extra frequencies that analog TV currently uses.

My sentiments exactly!!!!! I do the emails, make the calls, snail mail when necessary for impact leaders, volunteer with a local Welfare Rights agency, do all that I can to educate people.
I don't get it either, and what is worse, it seems to me the young people care less than those in their 40's and over. There is no sense of right and wrong in people anymore when it comes to government. Most people are jaded and know they are all crooked and screwing us and most just could care less. That is just how we got where we are right now.
With the economy collapsing people are going to have to wake up, I can't see how they could allow this to get worse. Then again, rather than getting up and doing something, we look to leaders to save us instead of us getting up and protesting, boycotting and saving ourselves.
Fema camps may not be so far fetched after all.

Maybe if people woke up, they would rise up and say NO MORE
Of course that would mean actually being aware and active in their state and federal government - would the sheeple expend the effort?
Read the words
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us,
Change British or King to Federal Government and see just how it applies to us today
