WH memo: How to deal with protestors

White House Manual Details How to Deal With Protesters -

Here's a link to the pdf --

Think you don't live in a country where characteristics of totalitarianism or fascism exist? This sounds like it came right out of the Cold War-era Soviet Union.

The White House has concocted a manual, known as the "Presidential Advance Manual," by which White House staffers can squelch potential protesters using the detailed techniques presented in the manual. The manual has been made available due to a subpoena filed in a case involving the ACLU and two anti-Bush protesters who were thrown in jail for wearing t-shirts that had slogans on them that might hurt Little Bush's feelings.

This kind of stuff is anti-democracy. So, the President proposes spreading democracy throughout the Middle East and world but doesn't really believe in it here. These guys are nothing if not hypocrites, talking out of both sides of their mouths. Gotta love the Repugnicans.

I can't tell if your tongue is firmly planted in your cheek...but thanks for stopping by!

Something that's been missing from American democracy is dialog. Discussions, debates, even arguments -- they're all vitally healthy endeavors that cultivate a thriving democracy.
