garlic reminded me that the NATO/G8 protests coming up in May will likely be very annoying. Not only will there be anarchists, but there will be police as well. Not sure which I dislike more. Probably the police, since the police will shoot you if they have to, and their definition of "necessity" can sometimes be fairly lax. They can arrest you and charge you with a felony if you videotape them or record them without their consent (up to 15 years per count!). They can club you on the head and pepper spray you for almost any reason during what can be called a protest without any fear of recourse. Anarchists just smell bad and muck up traffic. Sometimes they might break a window.

The illegal immigration debate is heating up in the U.S.A. Some leading Democrats have suggested that anyone seen crossing the border illegally should be shot on the spot by border patrol agents, and strung up on any nearby cactus to warn others away. A Republican committee chairmain has endorsed the idea that companies which hire the illegals reward them with water and refried beans only. Talk radio hosts have demanded that English be forcibly administered to the illegals through earphones they're required to wear in public.
