Occupy Worcester's Jonathan Noble said, “Anarchists, communists, and tea partiers are standing together. Even though I feel a little uncomfortable about what they (tea party members) stand for, I think it's kind of a beautiful thing that we can stand together on this.”

Beautiful, indeed. But not so surprising when you think about it. The American nation was formed in the wake of what was really a foreign occupation in this land. Further, the Constitution was based, in part, on strictures placed upon the King in the Magna Carta. The last thing the framers wanted was a new king with unlimited power. The National Defense Authorization Act passed and signed late in 2011 seems to grant that kind of power.
Any American has the right and even duty to oppose such a law. Long live the American republic! And long live its defenders, one and all!
