Your unfounded fear is nothing but your government creating hate to justify it's foreign economic policies.
The USSR was never communist, the real communists apposed the Bolsheviks, and were oppressed with force...
Amid a setting of high drama and legal confusion, Russia's new Constitutional Court started today to grapple with the issue of whether President Boris N. Yeltsin's ban on the Communist Party is legal under the Constitution written by that very party.
But as it hears arguments about legality and constitutionality, the court finds itself handling an inevitably political trial, which has more to do with Mr. Yeltsin's legitimacy and influence as the inheritor of Soviet power than it does with any real effort to revive the Communist Party.
Viktor I. Zorkaltsev, a legislator from Tomsk who was also representing the Communists, praised the party for defeating fascism in World War II and "building a mighty power that achieved great heights in science, culture and education." While the party had made "mistakes," he said, it was also reforming itself, and the party "as a whole" had not supported the coup attempt against Mr. Gorbachev.

I'm sorry but as long as I've been on ATS (10 years) these types of threads have been popping up. They're coming to get you, they're going to put you in fema camps, they're going to this do that bla bla bla.
All this does is scare people into the perpetual circle of fear and consumerism. I, for one, am tired of it. And I am glad to see that this thread doesn't have many flags.
It's coming, it's coming.....meanwhile it's years later and nothing has happened.

What I would like to know is, where are all these DHS people coming from? I mean don't they also have family and friends? Were they released from prisons for this? Are they an alien race? Soulless? Have they been brainwashed? Or were they sold a bill of good for a job they believe is to protect Americans? Won't these DHS people have people they know and love effected by this whole cabal?

He says no, in socialism/ communism the people own the means of production, collectively.
So I take it, that you are Pro Capitalism and believe no-one should be able to get to the head of the line by buying politicians to do their bidding like the Big Wall Street Banks and Corporations do?
In Capitalism, the markets determine winners and loosers. Buying politicians to create rules and regulations for your benefit against everyone else's expense is not capitalism.

OMG I can't stop laughing. OK the "cop cars" in your first 2 pics are Federal Protective Service. They are not new they have been protecting federal buildings for decades, offices, and properties. The last pic is the southern border at Cali/Mex outbound/south bound lanes during the manhunt for the nutbar cop killer.
Jesus next time at least photo-shop something better than this.

There are 7 Departments in DHS
1. U.S. Coast Guard
4. U.S. Secret Service
5. U.S. Customs and Border Protection
6. U.S. CItizenship and Immigration Services
7. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
My question is...which of these departments would be patrolling the local highways and pulling people over? My only guess would be TSA but I'm not sure.
What legal authority do they have to pull you over? I don't know that answer but I've been trying to find out for awhile.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The problem isn't capitalism or communism. I think either one could work splendidly. The problem is ethics. The unethical (evil) people always seem to get rich and powerful and take over no matter what type of gov or economic system is in place. The reason for this is that ethical people have lines they will not cross no matter how much money and power is at stake. whereas the unethical will run over old ladies and babies for a few dollars giving them the advantage. We don't all play by the same rules. It's like playing poker but the dealer gets as many cards as he wants to make his hand. Dishonest salesmen are likely to make more sales because they will lie and the ethical man is limited by the truth. The same is true with politicians and votes. An honest man can rarely get elected to a high office leaving only the unethical who is willing to lie for vote in charge. Look at president B.O. almost everything he originally campaigned on was a lie. He was reelected anyways. This is also proof of another problem, stupidity. Because of pop culture and sports a good portion of our population is mentally disabled. This is no accident. The unethical people who control everything including the airwaves has done this to us on purpose. If not for the stupidity/ignorance of the populace we would have never let things git this far to begin with. Just my two cents.edit on 25-3-2013 by begoodbees because: (no reason given)
