"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Occupy Oakland Rioting... Let the Anarchy Begin

Obama and the Democrats were short-sighted in their support for the Occupy Wall Street mobs.   It's not the Tea Parties -- citizens and taxpayers who simply want their government to reform and stop spending money we don't have.   These people in the OWS protests are members of the anarcho-socialist Left, and while most of them are just silly and foolish, some of them were inevitably going to "break bad" as the saying goes.  

Well, it's started with today's riots in Oakland:

When Obama says that he's fighting for the "middle class," I don't think those words mean what he thinks they mean.   The middle class Americans I know don't like rioting in the streets of their cities.
