I agree, except replace country with world.

Our government is running rampant, constantly waging wars and killing civilians.

People get incredibly offended when they're told that, but it's truth. It's fact. They act like America is incapable of committing any wrongs, and even when shown incontrovertible proof it is denied. Then it gets dropped as the new fad or controversy gets it's prime time pumping for everyone to latch on to.

And to top it off, these people are the ones who call anyone who says anything anti-American as haters or just that; anti-American. The, "if you don't like it you can get the hell out!" compared to "I don't like it but I will support your right to vocalize it."

And for the cherry, when people from others countries criticize Americans for our blatant hipocricy they're told to get their grubby noses out of our business. Yet, and here's how the circle completes itself, our policy makers have their grubby fingers in countries where they don't belong.

This is why Americans are not taken seriously and do not deserve to be. A McDonalds ad on Facebook gets 19 million likes but something American such as a Ron Paul interview have maybe 10,000.

And when these events, such as the riot, happen we sit here like a bunch of idiots talking about how stupid our society is yet we are that society.

This country literally redefines sheep, wolves, and pigs.

@#$! about to pop off


Are we watching the same feed?

I saw maybe 20-30 meandering dudes, with a banner reading fnaugtyword the police, they walked up the the row of officers, lay the banner on the ground, walked around a little, picked the banner up, threw a sparkler and walked off.

that was 10 minutes.. I stopped camtasia recording it about there..

This is a good outcome. Boring, but good.

It looks like there are more people now, or maybe they're just spread out.

Obstructing the flow of traffic.

It looks like they did a really bad job. This is a reason protest in America are terrible today. Most of them are young and feel like their "revolutionaries" in protesting. I'm amazed the police are not following them around. Crazy!

The problem with this not really driving many to riot is the simple fact that just about everyone would say... "if someone was beating my ass and I had a gun I would shoot him too" kind of hard to riot over what you would also do....

Well, either there's complications in the video feed, or a UFO abducted the helicopter....and the latter seems more logical from my experience

(or maybe these hardcore protesters acquired some stinger missiles and shot the helicopter down?)
