Posted on 10/08/2012 4:22:30 PM PDT by Kartographer
Last week, when hundreds of thousands of people in Madrid, Barcelona and throughout Spain protested, rioted, rebelled and called for the forced resignation of every one of their parliamentary representatives and the formation of a new government, the silence from global mainstream media was deafening.
With jobless rates for those between the ages of 20 and 35 exceeding 50%, further social spending measures promised by the government, and tens of billions in handouts being transferred to large financial institutions in the broader Euro Zone, those impoverished by the economic collapse of the last four years would not be silenced.
They took the streets in droves. They rushed their parliament building, forcing representatives to barricade themselves inside. They confronted their government head on.
And for their transgressions, they were indiscriminately fired upon, beaten, and bloodied by riot police; men, women, young, old, it mattered not to the policing arm of the global elite.

What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Moral of the story: don’t participate in the riot.
I don’t know if I’m opposed to the government using aggressive tactics against freeloaders who riot because their welfare benefits have been reduced. Seems to me that I’m more concerned about a repeat of the Rodney King riots when the police sat around doing nothing about such people.
I want to disagree and I can not believe that US service men would fire on everyday American Civilians exercising their constitutional rights, but we also must consider it has happen before in our history during direr times and two of the officers in charge were a pair of our most conservative Generals Douglas MacArthur and George Patton.

Police are forced to crack down at times against leftist freeloader mobs demanding their gravy train continue. Sorry, not too worried about this. I don’t have any sympathy for liberals rioting in the streets of Europe trying to preserve their bloated welfare states. If the police have to crack heads, I say good on them.
Those were Federal agents, not soldiers.
The tanks were from Fort Hood.
“Waco was strictly federal law enforcement agencies - not military.”
The feds got assistance from the military in violation of “posse comitatus”.
They trumped up a drug charge to get around posse comitatus.
The previous residents had some kind of drug lab, but the Davidians dismantled the equipment. Drugs were not an issue at Waco.
The NRA wanted to X-ray the supposed illegally converted rifles to see if the conversion was done before or after the fire, and they were not allowed access to them.
Federal troops were used on the Bonus Army.
Yep, just a bunch of freeloaders.
In January, without any recognizable corporate media coverage, Rep. Bob Filner, a California Democrat, introduced H.R. 675. The bill would amend title 10 of the United States Code and extend to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms. The bill was referred to the Armed Services Committee on January 26, 2009.
Rep. Bob Filner
Filners bill would amend the United States code with the following: Sec. 1585b. Law enforcement officers of the Department of Defense: authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms for any offense against the United States. (Emphasis added.) ...
HR 675 reintroduced, now HR 324 -01/2011
If you haven't seen, Rep Filner has reintroduced his resolution. It is now HR 324 with some minor changes.
I know not everyone is going to be happy with it but it is what it is and is better than nothing. I know the guy who did the leg work to meet with Filner and he did it for everyone.
If you are a 0083, you need to get behind it and lobby your reps to support it. It is easy to complain but who is willing to step up? I am gonna be in DC next month for the AFGE Legislative Conference and already have meetings with my reps to lobby for their support. ...

The OWS leftist riot was tolerated by the crooks in office and their cronies. The politicians have sold their souls to Socialism. Any rioters will be placated by more free stuff from the government. Just another IOU to the Fed. The US military would be stupid to intervene when the whole house of cards collapses. Even Yamamoto feared armed Americans. It would not be wise for anyone to fire on an armed American.
