Wow.

Wanna see in graphic detail what happened to our government? Check out these Venn Diagrams!

Then, if you aren't thoroughly nauseated, read the story of a Georgia six year-old who was arrested and handcuffed for having a temper tantrum at school. This is a new low in the stepped-up trend of criminalizing children for being children.

Nationwide, police are called to school, and end up arresting (or even tasering) children for the smallest infractions. Annette Montano of Albuquerque said that her 13-year-old child was arrested just last year for the absurd crime of burping in gym class. More here.

Have you noticed that the Police State has been expanding steadily? Here's part of what we can expect as this expansion continues unabated. And continue it will, since we have a Supreme Court that is unwilling to accurately interpret and support the basic constitutional rights of citizens. Only corporations have rights now.

Gotta love those Venn diagrams! A picture's worth a thousand words...

Arresting children in Georgia, or pepper-spraying unarmed elderly women, it doesn't make any difference to goon-cops. Their egos are so inflated that they can't differentiate between real crime and being children or protesting legally. The fact that they're cops already tells ya' a lot about their personality type. Way too many are thugs, who happen to wear a badge of authority for the state. Otherwise, the "criminal element" is still within their brain chemistry.

The police-state is upon us. I anticipate a very violent and chaotic summer. I'm sure Charlotte and Tampa are fortifying right now.

Re: the Venn Diagrams, here's the comment I posted on that site:

It's important to show these conflicts of interests, as the author has done with these graphics, but it's not a clear picture unless the repug connections are included. The Bush years were Crony government at it's most blatant, and it's dishonest to not include THOSE conflicts of interest. I'd love to see the author edit these to create a more accurate display.
