I completely agree Pigpen. Unfortunately I don't have a basement.
Guess I'll see you on the frontlines then!
There are so many ways that they are doing this, many we are
not even consciously aware of; the right /left political paradigm,
theism vs atheism, challenging gender roles have led to family
breakup, money has led many to pursue careers that take them
far away from family. I could go on but either you get my point
(and Pigpen's) or you don't.
The real question then is WHAT WILL UNITE US? This is where I
think the arrogance of the PTB will help. They will push some
issue without realizing that the public has had enough and will
rue it. What I saw in the 9/12 marches was the tip of the iceberg,
the real undercurrent of dissatisfaction and anger towards a
kleptocracy that only serves itself and its masters, which most of
us now realize AIN"T US!
WE THE PEOPLE, who are we and what will we do? WHEN will we
do it? We have one thing to unite us besides our rage at the PTB -
the Constitution, that "GD piece of paper" that some of us treasure
for what it is; a set of guidelinesto keep our government under control
and provide a rallying point for the future. There's a darn good
reason that the DHS wants to label people who are Constitutionalists
as terrorists; we would probably find them to be exactly the kind of
organization our founding fathers intended for us to protect ourselves against.
::checks box::: Yes, I am a terrorist too!
The engraving you show with the NO DRAFT sign shows the NYC
riots of 1863 where the Irish were burning black neighborhoods.
Troops who had just fought the battle of gettysburg arrived to
put down the riots after 3 days of violence that took more than 500
lives. This is why they haven't tried to institute the draft yet.
