Troubling times...

Brigade homeland tours start Oct.1

Here's a troubling bit of news from the US Army Times website. Starting October 1st the US Military will be deployed within the homeland. The site lays out possible uses for having soldiers deployed within the homeland:

"They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack."

It looks like they're counting on some civil unrest in the near future. Are they worried that if the warmonger McCain rigs the election there will be some dissatisfied citizens? Are they worried that if the economy tanks and throngs of jobless take to the streets then we need martial law to contain them? These are scary times, what's left of our democracy is being erroded. We have less rights than we did a decade ago, this could be a slippery slop. I pray that it's not. I pray that the right person for the job gets elected this november. I pray that we all open our eyes and see the true state that the world is in today. This isn't the time for "ignorance is bliss." Right now ignorance is death.

I implore everyone that reads this to stay informed, and vote for the candidate of your choosing. If we don't vote then we may as well have no voice at all. Make yourself heard.

Word Jakey. The right to vote is the most important of American rights. If people don't get out there and do so this year, they might as well leave this country. It is important this year more than ever. SHOW SOME EFFIN CONCERN FOR YOUR COUNTRY PEOPLE!!!
