[X-files theme] Doo dee doo dee dooooo [/X-files]

Wh- what the hell was that?

I demonstrated in the Labor Day march and again on Thursday at Rice Park inside a cylindrical fence that I called a Free Speech Pen. This ironic commentary on the diminishment of our First Amendment rights during the Bush/Cheney years met with amused recognition by the majority of passersby and fellow marchers. However, there is nothing at all funny about the way this drift away from a free and open society was manifested during Republican National Convention week.

Would whoever is playing that damn tune please knock it the hell off???!!!

The intimidation tactics and the garrison state fortifications around the Xcel center were dismaying enough in themselves. But the flagrantly illegal police actions in raiding south Minneapolis homes of protest organizers without warrants and the arrest of Democracy Now's Amy Goodman at the convention go way beyond any reasonable need to prevent violent demonstrations.

OK, I'm starting to get creeped out now.

I have no doubt that these repressive decisions were choreographed by higher authorities, but I nonetheless feel betrayed by our local law enforcement agencies.

I want to believe!

And you can help me. Please take the new poll atop the sidebar, so that we can get to the bottom of this nefarious scheme and shenanigans.

We're through the looking glass here people!
