Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Tea Parties vs. OWS?

A warning from Bill Quick:

They foresee bands of black-masked Occupiers attacking and scattering any legally organized demonstrations the Tea Party may arrange for. The cops can't do it, but these new Obama Brown Shirts can, while the cops look the other way.
I doubt if that will succeed. They can turn out hordes of bodies but they have no ability at all to shoot deserters.

Please recall that the Other Side is full of bluffers. It was a bluff when they warned of a “long hot summer” full of urban riots if Reagan were elected. It was a bluff when they threatened to make the country ungovernable if Bush were re-elected. It was a bluff when they claimed the Israeli crackdown on Palestinians would intensify the terrorism.

Just in case they're not bluffing… One possible tactic is a combination of an international radiation symbol sticker, a recording of a Geiger counter, and watching the Other Side run away. Another possible tactic is using quarterstaffs.

Addendum: They don't sound that dangerous.
