Don't Worry - the Country is Still Silly

That completely illegal activities just get ignored is so characteristic of our useless governments.

This is pathetic:

Brant said his protesters are ready to keep up their blockades until midnight Friday and have stockpiled food and water, and have trucks, tree trunks and wooden pallets ready to build more barricades.

"We've made no secret that we have guns within this camp," Brant told the Canadian Press.

"It's our intent to go out and ensure a safe day. Unfortunately, previous incidents have shown that aggressive tactics by the police need to be met with equal resistance by the people they're bringing those against."

Brant cited the 1995 death of protester Dudley George in Ipperwash Provincial Park as one tragic example where police and aboriginal protesters clashed.

The saddest is that some inquiry recently whitewashed the utter illegality of the Ipperwash occupation mentioned above. As a result, we have invited more of this nonsense. Of course as the idiots running this protest escalate their behaviours we will hit a day where the govermnent must finally respond. But by waiting we are just making that response much more costly.
