Good. We need hundreds of non-violent protests like this. But beware. The fascists in government are looking for a confrontation.
I don't think so. It's more like the Obama thinking was that people would whine but do nothing. Thus he'd be confirming how weak and ineffectual we are against his dictates. The only strong contradiction to that was the WWII vets. They knew that to get something done, do it. Don't test the waters and take polls first....just do what's right for your situation.
After the egyptian protesters got rid of morsi, i think obummer would be careful about confronting large groups.
we do need to use MASS disobedience to win this thing because individual efforts will be knocked off quickly.
