- Thomas Jefferson
I've just returned from the Tea Party at International Park, Toledo, Ohio and took a few pictures, even though it was difficult with the drizzle. When one fellow, dressed in a nice suit, was walking toward me when I was aiming to take a picture, I joked and said, "Smile!" And he questioned, half-jokingly, "Are you with DHS?" I said, "No, David Ben-Ariel."
Having been in politico-religious demonstrations in Israel, aware of the Israeli government's tactics, like a bunch of Bolsheviks, it's sad that Americans now need to be concerned of leftist intimidation against our freedoms of speech and religion as we've become a police state and it's only going to get worse if folks don't act now.
Beyond Conspiracy: Police State America
"Shall I tell you what the real evil is? To cringe to the things that are called evils, to surrender to them our freedom, in defiance of which we ought to face any suffering."
-- Lucius Annaeus Seneca, c. 4 BC - 65 AD
The few photos I took testify that a growing number of Americans are teed-off, as the various signs of the times reveal. If I had made it a sign, it would have been:
Who cares about your dog? Show us YOUR papers!
Emperor Obama has got to go! Let justice be served and our Republic restored and our Constitution upheld, so help us God.
I was only there for about a half an hour, 12 - 12:30, and folks were still pouring in as I left, the parking lot packed.
The flag the fellow is holding in the wind reads, "Don't Tread On Me!"
