There are some who might wish Alex had been able to see the model number and inflation pressure on the tire. Furthermore, they might suggest -- in such a case -- that they back up so he could take a second look.

Good to see old folks being used by the community. Does a lot to disprove the myth that with age comes wisdom though. Of course they are probably the majority of those left on the Reformers subscription base so they knew in advance when to leave their homes and where the protest started from. And Alex, aren't we in such a state because of all the old people voting for Bush, wasn't a new day dawning with fresh ideas when O gasam was voted in by all the young and uninitiated? The young don't know and the old have forgotten.

So I find out the scoop on that ridiculous Lockdown of the Vernon school thursday from one of those running Vernon, turns out they have a 'reason' for their paranoia that some anti-nukie(s) would cause harm to the school building or the children. Seems they had some bit of vandalism to the building some years ago that happened when protesters had been assembled across and slightly down the street by the nuke entrance.

I was told that most of those running that shots in the town see it as not something that the typical anti-nukies are about but that "there's a few bad apples in the bunch". So because of one incident some time back which they believe to have been done by 1 or 2 extremist(s) hanging the anti-nuke camp, and the blown-up embellished rumors of perhaps FIVE THOUSAND they believed were coming the protest thursday (LOL) they decided to 'be safe' and do as Entergy hq has been doing and have a Lockdown and cops making sure whoever goes near the school belongs there.

I haven't heard of any arrest or that it was definately proven to have been done by anti-nukie(s) but they seem sure it was so some parents apparently asked for protection from the hoards of horrid hairy harrasssing hippies.

I wouldn't be surprised if that AND the fire incident at the ENVY hq recently were by the same agent provocateur(s) of the NukeTard camp!
That kind of false flag op is a primary tactic straight out of the Scheming Rotten BasTard's old playbook on dirtytricks/troublemaking/mani pulation/bamboozlement
Meanwhile we see beligerent nuketard punks giving the middle finger to anti-nukies while nearly driving into them! http://www.topix.com/forum/city/brattleboro-v...

The head of the Vermont Sheriff force at VY came up to me for a talk before it all began. I was way early. He drove up from the plant to the town library. He knew who I was as he addressed me by Mr Mulligan. He was a real decent person. He basically said all the police are neutral and they are here to make everyone safe.

I said, it is in our interest to respect the police, cause at points in all of our lives we desperately need the police as in a accident in the road and for criminal activity. We all desperately need the police to protect us all.

We talked about our damaging polarized crazy political system...

He mentioned to me he was running for a political office.

I would vote for him.

As i rode past the front gate on my bike with a bunch of police officers standing there...I told them we are going to all behave ourselves today.

I got from a wise guy police officer response, "then we will behave ourselves."

I was thinking to myself, we don't have to behave, but in your official capacities you guys always are required to behave.

But I held back my wise ass tongue.

BVD was agreeing with u mikey

"The head of the Vermont Sheriff force at VY came up to me for a talk..."
-uhm, that would be the sheriff mikey

"baa-aaa We aaaa-all desperately need the police to protect us aaa-aaa-all."
-not true mikey

"He mentioned to me he was running for a political office."
-well that could be the same office that he already holds since a sheriff has to elected

too bad Clark doesn't care about the Constitution and his true duty. Here's what a REAL sheriff looks like->

I am not sure what he was saying, whether it was the head of the 10 or so Sheriffs on the VY site or if he was the head of the Brattleboro Sheriffs Department...but he was no regular Sheriff.

I believe he said he worked for the Sheriff's department for 28 years.

I was initially shocked he knew my name and I was wondering how he came to know who I was.

But I have no issues what so ever of "being known"...

I watched more than one person over by the gate and behind the fence talking pictures of us. I am certain they could detect our voices and conversations.

How could anyone not know who you are, Mike? Your name and your activities are splashed all over the place, and since the bridge incident your picture is around too. I would use a different name on the internet.

did he look like this but with shades on?-

every county has only ONE sheriff mikey, and under him/her are what are called 'deputies'
Remember the old Andy Grifith show? Sheriff Taylor and deputy Barney Fife played by Don Knotts
Sheriff Taylor tells the kids about Paul Revere's Ride and the 'Shot Heard Around the World'->


Unfortunately most sheriffs today are little more than guards of the courts and transporting prisoners and process servers. Elected sheriffs are the only Constitutionally authorized 'police' in this country but we've wrongfully allowed the creation of other powers, State and federal, to have power in our States and they've WAY Overstepped the bounds of the federal and State Constitutions

What a REAL sheriff sounds like->
