Karl Rove hides in Borders kids section until CSPD police officers called

Karl Rove book signing at Borders April 18, 2010
BRIARGATE MALL, COLORADO SPRINGS- The good news is that Borders will not eject you for an objectionable t-shirt. But they do not hesitate to have CSPD officers revisit you four times to tell you that you remain at their discretion. Mall security on the other hand believes you have no rights outside the sliver of sidewalk at the parking lot’s edge. Today, everyone unmasked as a protester was kept one floor removed from where Karl Rove was signing books and posing for pictures in the children’s section upstairs, but we were able to parade our ARREST KARL ROVE message before those lined up to see him, and that line subsided an hour before the event was scheduled to end. Ha ha.

Border agents taser a smart alec

cop taser video of pastor steve andersonYou’ve probably seen enough cop taser videos –have you seen one videotaped by the tasee? A troublemaking Baptist Pastor named Steve Anderson got himself ordered from his car where he had been refusing to consent to a warrant-less search by Homeland Security border agents. They told him he was under arrest, but wouldn’t say for what, they said that a K-9 team had given them probable cause, but wouldn’t bring the dog back to confirm it, and the officers wouldn’t respect Anderson’s fourth or fifth amendment rights, but that’s not the worst of it.

Same bait, same switch

Troops needed to watch the Mexico borderWell looky who’s used the protect the border bait and switch before! Ninety years ago, same illegal immigration scare, same perp.
I happened across some posters used to recruit soldiers during WWI. Here they raise the Mexico bugaboo to ease worries that enlistment into the military would automatically mean duty in the trenches. “No More Men Are Needed” at the western front. Oh really?! It reminds me of something Air Force recruiters were telling Colorado College students on Thanksgiving 2005. US troops would be out of Iraq by Christmas. Potential enlistees need not fear being sent to Iraq because America was already pulling out. Public opinion had already forced their hand, they said, and we were pulling out.
