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.
