TIME has named "The Protester" has it's "Person of the Year" thanks to the global year of protests, from the Arab Spring to Greece, from Occupy Wall Street and Wisconsin to Moscow. However, the "Year of the Protester" also means massive profits for the company that manufactures LRAD.

Occupy the Ports #D12 Rundown

It seems the Civil Rights Movement has to be revived to fight for voter's rights of African-Americans in the 2012 election. A number of states are passing legislation to make it difficult for various groups of people to vote including African Americans.
The right to vote is dependent upon having access to the polls . If there are unnecessary restrictions placed upon registration to vote or to the actual polling stations then in effect the right to vote is being violated.
It seems the uberconservatives and GOP are doing all they can to revive the Jim Crow laws especially regarding the eligibility of African Americans and other groups from exercising the right to vote.
These racist uberconservatives want to once again restrict the voting franchise .
They have already destroyed ACORN which was a voters' rights organization which helped thousands of African Americans and the poor and others to register and to vote.

The GOP is working to undermine the rights won by the Civil Right's Movement . These uberconservatives and their enablers in the media ie Fox News are trying to turn back the clock to an era when black Americans were denied their rights including the right to vote.
Politicians such as Newt Gingrich and GOP supporters such as Pat Buchanan Glenn beck, Lou Dobbs , Michele Bachmann want to return America to an era when White Christian Males were privileged above all other American citizens. Some would even allow for a poll tax or some sort of eligibility test in order to keep those unwanted groups from registering to vote and then if they pass that hurdle make it difficult to vote during the election.
These uberconservatives who when it comes down to it are in fact anti-democracy since they believe that only a privileged groups of white citizens should be permitted to vote.
So in order to achieve their goal they are passing strict voter ID legislation plus trying to remove early voting polls or polls open on a Sunday and to limit the hours of operation of the polls and decreasing the number of polling stations.

One would think that those who support democracy would want to make things easier for the average American to vote by increasing the number of polling stations in each district and establishing more early polling days and extending the hours of operation for people to vote.

NAACP We Will Stand Dec. 2011

In collaboration with Brave New Foundation, the NAACP has put together a new video about the impact of the voting right attacks on communities of color. Please take a moment to watch and spread the message to everyone you know, then text STAND to 62227:

USA per usual believes it has the right to ignore the sovereignty of any nation it wishes to.
As for NATO and the United Nations these organizations are merely tools of the United States which they use to give a legal and moral veneer for America's illegal and immoral activities from its War of Aggression to the torure of POWs, to targeted assassinations to carpet bombing civilian that is non-military targets to using its own WMDs including White Phosphorus, Cluster Bombs, land Mines , bunker busters and if they feel like it Nuclear weapons or biological weapons which is all at the discretion of the president or the Pentagon.
And so the USA is preparing to engage in an unnecessary and immoral war in Iran and possibly Syria .
Is Obama's motivation more to do with next year's election than with the danger posed by Iran .
Is he still trying to establish that he is a get tough Commander In Chief who is not in any way squeamish about spilling the blood of the invented enemy.
You would think after the mass murdering of some 150,000 civilians in Libya by the US and NATO that Obama had enough blood on his hands. Now he sounds as crazed as Dick Cheney , George Bush or Karl Rove and Fox News and CNN.
