Comment: Alright

(See in situ)


I agree with you for the most part but somewhat disagree with the "first punch" analysis. The establishment has thrown the first punch -- and it continues beating the American people senseless as they lay unconscious on the ground. It has essentially taken away Amendments 4-10 from us (NDAA, Patriot Act, TSA, NSA phone database, drug war, extrajudicial killings, drones, federal preemption, etc, etc, etc.) and it has severely limited the first amendment under certain circumstances. It has not taken away our second amendment rights yet (although it has expressed unequivocal intentions to do so -- or at least severely restrict them).

So in my opinion the first punch has been thrown.
