Speaking of Jack-booted thugs

There are some pretty disturbing reports coming out of Minneapolis about preliminary residential raids by heavily-armed SWAT-like teams, seemingly looking to intimidate those considering protesting the GOP convention. This material is from Salon.com, which I would consider to be a reputable media outlet.

If this scares or disturbs you (and it should), then VOTE the goons that run our country out on their asses in November.

This is an DEVELOPING STORY. Here’s an unrelated video of a dozen police cars commandeering an activist bus. More developments, in words and pictures, here.

It will be interesting to see what sort of role social networking plays in the next few days of the political landscape.
