Third World USA watch
In third world nations, government officials prosecute you for criticizing government officials or government agencies.
We have officially arrived.
Well, actually, we arrived some time ago, when the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the Feds to prosecute a guy for the crime of holding up a sign critical of King George at a time when King George could actually see it. But this is just a punctuation mark.
We are now a third world nation. The United States of America is dead. The Third World States of America are all you will ever know, all that your children will ever know. And as far as I can tell, nobody gives a damn, or cares to do shit about it.

Mom says it reminds her of her childhood. Since she grew up under Hitler's rise to power I guess she knows.

Some of the people who do give a damn are here and around the web, some are at home, doing what they can. I think there will be a huge backlash against all this in november. If there isn't it will either be because the repubs have gained control of the voting machines, or because another military disaster happens on american soil (notice I didn't say "another terrorist strikes on am...") If the former happens, we have more work to do, if the latter, maybe we're sunk.
