Now in the United Socialist States of America

Remember this piece about the stationing of an LRAD (long-range acoustic device) acoustic weapon at a San Diego Congressional town hall meeting?

The video above, as linked on Drudge this morning, shows one in use, albeit presumably in test/demonstration mode, as part of the "overwhelming show of force" supporting the G-20 meeting in Pittsburgh :

"By order of the City of Pittsburgh Chief of Police, I hereby declare this to be an unlawful assembly...no matter what your purpose is."

Somebody cue Lee Greenwood...

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

I'll ask the theoretical question I asked the last time about these devices (albeit in slightly modified form):

Will they continue to work according to design paramaters if, somehow, they were to come into contact with a random airborne chunk of lead traveling at somewhere north of 2,000 FPS?

IOW, are the taxpayers getting a really robust piece of equipment, or something that would cease to function under circumstances that could, theoretically, come about in any number of places...randomly, of course?

"Somebody cue Lee Greenwood"

Many people would rather be martyred than renounce their religious belief in the State as champion and protector. The Germans killed millions who somehow couldn't find the will to fight against being marched into boxcars. Did they have a moral failing, or some kind of mental illness like depression/ learned helplessness/ institutionalization/ domestication?

Make sure that you check out this:


Lots of pictures of the activity.
Also note the captions which point out that OHIO State Police are active in Lawrenceville, PA (near Pittsburgh, PA.

The war inside the USA starts with the use of "less than lethal" military crowd control devices operated and guarded by masked black-suited ninjas with machine guns....

Socialists begin to morph into Communists as they discover military armories full of weapons.

"Hey, we don't have to ask any more. We can compel compliance among the survivors!"

Nancy is correct to fear violence since we (civilian populations) don't have the option of non-lethal weapons beyond our (ignored) voices, small finances, and (fraudulently counted) votes. Like a little girl police officer, civilian options of gradually escalating violence are severely limited.

I make a point of carefully obeying a small female officer who is working solo if I'm pulled over, even more so than the male officer who is 4" taller and 30 pounds of muscle heavier than I am.

The big officer has no reason to fear me, because he can grab and throw me down if I don't comply with commands. The big officer can take a step back and draw his club, use pepper spray, draw a Taser (which is a "sometimes lethal" weapon), or his sidearm, depending on what he believes is appropriate/policy.

The small woman officer MUST escalate immediately to deadly force, or reasonably expect that an uncooperative larger-stronger male person could disarm her.

Well, old Lee sorta jumped on a bandwagon there didn't he. Different when the left does it.

Memo to Lee Greenwood:

No one died to give me any rights!


Some folks seem to have great difficulty with basic language comprehension.

Not to make anyone paranoid but check out this video which also just got posted to Drudge. Whatever your political thinking is, it has to send a shiver down your spine...remember that there never was a shortage of concentration camp guards....

Those guys tossing the fellow into the car are not US .mil, IMHO.

If they were, why are they wearing Woodland Camo and commercial MultiCamo uniforms with no insignia?
