Another Anti-Bush War Protester Arrested.

A war protester carrying signs that called for Bush's impeachment and the end of the war in Iraq was yanked out of a parade and arrested on July 13 in tiny Mexico, NY, an upstate community of some 5000 people.

An Oswego County deputy sheriff pulled Joshua Davies, 23, out of the parade, put him in handcuffs in the back of his prowl car, and charged him with disorderly conduct. Onlookers were stunned at what they saw. "Can they do that?" someone asked.

Apparently they can.

This is happening in cities and towns all across America -- for example, metropolitan Houston and tiny Neville, PA. A Google search for Bush Protester Arrested will give you an astonishing 92,800 hits going back years.

Our constitutional rights are being taken away, one day at a time, one person at a time.

While I have no doubt that Joshua Davies will eventually be cleared in this particular case (as were the individuals in Houston and Neville), the total cumulative effect of these arrests serves as a dampening field on all of our rights to freely speak our minds, and creates a chilling effect on the free exercise of our constitutional right of free speech.

And Mr and Mrs Red State, proud members of the faith-based Moron-American voting bloc, think that this is all perfectly okay. After all, Fearless Leader says, "there ought to be limits to freedom".

Welcome to 1933 Germany. Your papers, please.

Here's the real motto of the New leaders:

America, every day a tad more Orwellian. Don't fight it. Relax.
