Zero Tolerance for Peace At Drone Convention.

This little demonstration at a meeting of murderers shows exactly what the political dirtbags and military industrial complex think of human life.

Well, I don't think much of their lives, either, especially the pompous prick known as “Representative” Dana Rohrabacher of California, shown refusing to do his sworn duty near the end.

The Congressional Unmanned Systems Caucus (better known as the Drone Caucus) led by US Congressman Buck McKeon (R-CA) hosted a drone convention in the Rayburn Congressional building in Washington DC on September 21, 2011. The convention was a showcase display of glorified killing machines that have reshaped the entire notion of warfare, and CODEPINK had no choice but to take action and remind those at the convention what important information they were missing.

We should, at best, lock these people up. Every damn one of them.

Here is a snippet from Zen-Havens article,
At Drone Convention, Zero Tolerance for Peace

By Medea Benjamin

When are we, as a nation, going to have a frank discussion about drones and remote-controlled killing?

One might think that such a dialogue could take place when thousands of people come together, once a year, at the gathering of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI). Wrong.

But AUVSI, the lobby group for the drone industry, brooked no dissent at its August 6-9 Las Vegas Convention. When I, as author of a new book Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, tried to rent a room at the Convention Center to give a presentation on my book, AUVSI vetoed my request.

When I tried to register as a journalist, I was told that I did not meet their criteria, but they refused to say what that criteria was. And after registering online as a normal participant and paying the $200 fee, when I appeared to get my badge I was yanked off the line, surrounded by police, and told I would be arrested if I set foot in the Convention Center during the duration of the gathering.

Keep reading here, it gets worse.

Bear Baiting - South Carolina’s Shame

To all South Carolina crackers... fuck you. Got it? Sick, depraved sub human crap, you all are.

 Bear baiting, also known as "bear baying" by some, is a cruel spectator event where participants release their dogs to attack a tethered, captive bear, who has had her claws and some of her teeth cut off, leaving her defenseless.

Outlaw Bear Baiting in South Carolina!  http://www.causes.com/causes/40328-wspa-put-an-end-to-bear-baiting/actions/1668713
To: Nikki Haley, South Carolina Governor and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources

Defenseless bears have no rights and are attacked for the cruel pleasure of spectators. Bear baiting needs to be stopped. We demand that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley outlaw and criminalize bear baiting in the state to put an end to this practice.

Bear baiting (also called bear baying) pits a declawed and defanged bear which is chained to a stake against hunting dogs that bark and bit at it while hundreds of people watch. Spectators consider this event entertainment and hunters consider this as a training regimen for their animals. As countries around the world ban events such as bullfighting and cockfighting, Pakistan and South Carolina (USA), are two remaining places that haven't criminalized the practice. Sign the petition today to help put an end to this "sport".
