On Security, Obama’s ‘Coalition of the Willing’ Takes Shape~ Ron Paul Stands Alone

*** Ron Paul stands alone...again!

"In a vote of 258-163, the House of Representatives passed a broad package of measures entitled H.R. 2892 “Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes.”

The vote was spun as a defeat for the Obama Administration’s ostensible plan to close Guantanamo Bay, but really underscored the hawkish voting block that the administration will likely have to rely on to push through future escalations in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

***Though only supported by 35% of voting Democrats, the bill passed easily, relying on a coalition of centrist Democrats and Republicans. Only one Republican, Congressman Ron Paul, voted against the measure." ***

We have got self-declared demagogues deciding our future and the future of our children, they vote exclusively in their own interests without regard for the people they are supposed to represent... Reminds me of the "Oracles" in Sparta, depicted in the move 300......

You sound surprised

that they voted exclusively in their own interests without regard for the people!!!!

The "Oracles" ..well

as I posted below , I had a rather evil picture come to mind too!

One wonders

If the “Detainee Photographic Records Protection Act of 2009” will be applied to domestic detainees...

Practice Suspicious Behavior

Gotta remember what this is about.

They are building a "ring of security" around themselves, and so this is very important for them.
They know what they are doing to the people.
They know that time is getting late, and that the jig is basically up.
And they are afraid what the people might do to them for selling them down the river.

So,they are spending our money to build themselves a fortress and police state.
I don't think it will work, but they are going to do it anyway.

This never was, and never will be about anything except them trying to shield themselves from the wrath of the people they sold out.

I think you're

correct; I was astonished, for a moment, today when our local newspaper carried an article about recent SWAT team training in our little SMALL-TOWN area; they specifically received training in "entering buildings to practice serving high-risk warrants" and my favorite, "dealing with someone barricaded in a home"...
First glance at the pictures reminded me of the G-20 Summit...
