That change I hear doesn’t ring a bell

In Europe, millions of people gather in the streets to protest tyranny, almost daily.

In Greece, the oppression has turned deadly. In the Mideast, the U.S. military continues to loot country after country, killing thousands of women and children (have you ever seen the face of a young child who has been riddled with bullet holes). In Africa, plans are being made for the next wars. In Mexico, the U.S. government has given the people thousands of guns so they can kill each other, and 60,000 have done just that.

In the United States, the argument rages on whether Obama has the right to kill Americans, when he’s in the mood. Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security has bought 2,700 armored police cars, to patrol the streets. Plus, they keep adding to their cache of hollow-point bullets and automatic weapons. Police departments all across the nation, are training to fight tea party groups, patriot groups, veterans groups, and constitutionalists. Furthermore, it has been reported, multiple times, that foreign troops are training along side the military, because the government thinks our soldiers will not have the guts to pull the trigger on Americans.

There’s an old adage that says: “They don’t ring a bell”. But I have to tell you, folks, I hear a loud clanging in my ear 24/7.
