And so the fourth of July has come, the celebration of the first
declaration of war by the United States on the day of its founding in
1776. Americans in Boston had lobbed snow balls at British troops and
the troops answered back with a volley of musket fire. Could that type
of thing ever happen again?
Ray McGovern, retired CIA officer, was tackled and dragged to the ground
by civil servants behaving like goons, for standing silently with his
back to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she spoke. How far then
are we from troops firing on American civilians?
The TSA recently pulled an elderly cancer patient out for a private
screening at the airport because her wheelchair could not fit through
the X-ray machine. Taken to a private location she was strip searched
and even forced to remove her adult diaper. The old woman was released
and eventually made her plane connection; her daughter however, did not.
She was detained by the TSA on a charge of acting suspiciously. If your
elderly mother had been stripped naked by government goons how do you
suppose she acted suspiciously?
