    Seems our government is afraid of its citizens. The message is clear, get our of line and pay the penalty.

    Ostensibly, for the conventions. But the overall prep for military involvement in riot and crowd control shows that the authorities are expecting things to deteriorate quite a bit....yet not preparing any of the rest of us for this. The riots and flash mobs that are happening around the country, the riots down in Annaheim, things are just beginning. Look at Spain, where millions have taken to the streets, peacefully, for now....

    Will the military pull the trigger on their fellow citizens? At some point, I think they will refuse.

    Although it's unlikely that they'll be issuing battle rifles to troops in that situation ever again.

    Not that it matter given that ordinary cops today are often better armed ....
