One Free Market System for Wall Street, Another for Main Street

Trillion-dollar deficits are projected through the Obama years, be they four or eight. Long before 2016, however, holders of U.S. public debt will stop buying Treasury bills or start demanding higher interest rates to cover the growing risk of a default...

Surveillance Drones To Zap Protesters Into Submission

The future of policing: Dissidents to be tortured into compliance by marauding unmanned vehicles

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, February 12, 2010

Illustrating once again that the prison planet being built around us far outstrips anything Aldous Huxley or George Orwell ever imagined, a Wired News report details how police forces worldwide are preparing to unveil drone aircraft that can not only conduct surveillance of protesters, but also zap them into submission with non-lethal weapons.
