MTV Warns About Martial Law

Well, this ongoing theme of Martial Law coming to the United States just doesn't want to go away. In a previous post "Prelude To Martial Law?", we saw that the first of several Army Infantry Brigades has been assigned duty here in the United States. This is against the Civil War era Posse Commitatus Act and has never happened on American soil. This comes right in time for the most serious financial meltdown since The Great Depression and as a historic election is about to occur. Congressman Brad Sherman says on video that Congress was recently threatened with martial law.
Now I see that MTV is bringing this cautionary message to America's youth, and I think this is good.
Come on kids! Rock the vote and keep what's left of United States Democracy!

Great ads.

I think it's really, really sad that we have to get any kind of discussion of this topic on MTV as opposed to the so-called mainstream media like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.

And to anyone who thinks "It can't happen here," well when people start saying that, that's when I start getting worried.

Just wanted to add the prophetic statement by Sinclair Lewis.

"When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Amen Brother!

Just remember who owns the mainstream media; huge energy and defense contractors. Add to that a monsterous give-away from the Treasury to the bankers, with Nationalistic fervor, and you have the textbook definition of Fascism.

You're preaching to the choir, DR.

I worked for the media pretty much my entire adult life. I know how decisions are made about what to cover, what not to cover, who covers what, how to cover a story, etc.

I can tell you all kinds of stories about how stories are changed from when we get them from wire services to when they appear on the evening news or in the paper.

And now I'm applying to law school.

I think it says something about the state of the media that I consider being a lawyer a higher calling than being a journalist.
