'Homeland Security' and Empty Inaugural Parade Seats

Craig Brown


Maybe they didn't take the Os off the White House keyboards... but
the Bush/Cheney team still wrecked havoc with the Obama Inauguration.

The mainstream media's not talking about it but did everyone else
notice the nearly empty bleachers all along the Inaugural Parade route?
Despite massive crowds in DC? Despite overwhelming demand for tickets?

Many reports
from the scene tell the same story: the Bush/Cheney "Department of
Homeland Security" slammed the cold door shut on many thousands of
ticket holders - not allowing them to get to their seats.

Yes - we need to provide Obama with top-notch personal security.

But let's get rid of the creepy anti-American 'Department of
Homeland Security' - and the police state that grew out of its post-9/11 beginnings.

Hopefully, all the Obama big donors who didn't get to their exclusive
seats will still be paying attention when 'Homeland Security' shuts
down our access to power.
