Tea Party Erupts...

..into the violence everyone said would happen. That's what happens when people show up at rallies with automatic weapons, after all...
In Atlanta, police in riot gear and SWAT teams arrested 53 people in Woodruff Park, many of whom had camped out there for weeks as part of a widespread movement that is protesting the wealth disparity between the rich and everyone else.

Mayor Kasim Reed had been supportive of the protests, twice issuing an executive order allowing them to remain.

Reed said on Wednesday that he had no choice to arrest them because he believed things were headed in a direction that was no longer peaceful. He cited a man seen walking the park with an AK-47 assault rifle.
These Tea Partiers must be stopped now, before someone gets hurt. Maybe it's time for another speech on civility from the "bully" pulpit.

Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Say no more, say no more.

Over 2,000 Occupy folks arrested and more each day.

Zero TEA party people were arrested.

Speaking of SWAT teams, my Halloween outfit is a female SWAT team member, leather boots, cat suit, hand cuffs, gun (well a plastic toy gun). Hubby's band (one hobby) is playing for a big Halloween party Saturday night. I will be busy taking everyone's "mug shot", should be fun. Nice to get away from all the real world stuff now and then.
