How many remember that a raucous mob was allowed to occupy and trash the Wisconsin State Capitol for several weeks in 2011 (vs hours in DC)?
How is it that previous disruptive protests, at home and abroad, (and even a bombing in a certain DC building) are so soon forgotten? 
Should not justice demand quick determination as to the affiliations or motives of those who were arrested in DC re weapons charges, assaults on police, or the origin of the reported bomb?
And yet, how are the many seeking redress from their tone-deaf so-called public servants, and those photographed wandering through the doors of the US Capitol building, held to a different/draconian standard? 
How much more government control over our rights to freely speak, assemble, travel, and protest, will ensue from events of the past week and year?
Are not the rapidly filling ‘no fly lists’ without due-process, for those deemed guilty of thought-crimes (or songs), the tip-of-the-iceberg?
