    They didn't even get to the point of demonstrating. They were rounded up before a demonstration even started. Along with everyone else in the building, whether they were involved with Occupy or not.

    This is all so surreal - like your worse nightmare or a science fiction movie...I just cannot believe it's happening in this country.

    Sounds as though a few of Muslim appearance were hauled down to the station for some special intimidation and harassment.

    after these storm troopers broke the glass, terrorized the women and children, they had the gall to ask one of them, "Do you love this country?"

    what do they expect? "Oh yes, Officer Porky, you and this country are the awesomest of the awesome! You look so wonderful and powerful in your SS gear!"

    They also stepped on the backs of people who were lying face down on the ground.

    There's also a factional split -- between actual Occupiers and I-just-wanna-get-high-and-act-like-an-(expletive deleted)-or-maybe-I'm-really-an-agent-provocateur people.

    Instead of referring to them as SWAT teams, we should label them as Schutzstaffel (SS). Eventually it might catch on.

    I emailed all these links to Drudge. Is anyone else getting a "503 - Service Not Available" when they submit tips to Drudge today?

    NOOOOO - we don't want to let anyone know these machines are available until AFTER we have one in our possession - otherwise I could see DHS doing everything in their power to prevent any others on the free market...

    Hmmm. Methinks you're in the wrong thread. Are you talking about the Chertoffomizer on eBay? (That cat's out of the bag anyway, since it's been publicized on this very site.)

    After still another thread earlier today, she's probably down on floor rolling around in the catnip.

    I am in the wrong thread - can't believe I did that...Mike's right to blame the cat nip.
