"One of the things that we'll highlight at the G-20 - and maybe the protesters are missing this - is that I and other world leaders are very interested in making sure that the excesses of global finance are reined in," he said, "that we've got a regulatory framework and structure that assures you are not seeing the sorts of abuses that resulted in this most recent financial crisis that did create enormous hardship for Main Street." ~ President Obama
~ Sometimes the losers gain more in defeat than the victors realize in conquest.
The concept of First, Second and Third world nations is propaganda and has been since the Cold War began. Corporate media continues to use "Third World" as an undesirable direction that the U.S.A. is headed.
There is only one world.
In this world, the people cannot stop traffic to protest the actions of our leaders.
When we do, we are arrested. We are maced. We are tear gassed. Now we are driven away from our gatherings by sonic cannons that make anywhere within earshot uninhabitable.
For now, the corporate funded crowd control is only used to defend meetings like the G20, I.M.F., World Bank, D.N.C. and R.N.C.
All media coverage concentrates on the minority of protesters that resort to violence.
Why is the legality of a march or protest a legitimate reason to dismiss dialogue
while the legality of our elections, financial systems and wars remain in question?

emphasis added by me.
These are the men who promoted war in Iraq. These are the men who let G.W. Bush steal two elections. As long as they remain protected and not prosecuted, the U.S.A. will continue to be a corporate whore that privatizes war.

Poetic HyperLinks Defeating the Impossibilities of Peace
Rolling stones and hurricanes prime us for the rapid eye movement of whose dream?
A stairway to the dark side of the moon reveals an orchestrated King
singing the blues while sexual pistols whip Jesus’ son.
Who’s influence weens us?
Me and my friends gratefully raged against the machine for three days
in the shadow of the valley of the dead
so big brother and company held us down while the wind cried
nothing to be gained here (except copied rights),
Then a questing tribe of beastly boys found a digable plant
where a buffalo soldier picked up a Gideon’s bible from the Godfather
in joe’s garage (or was it in one of 200 motels?)
Anyway, on a Holiday, the pinball wizard boy (Billie)
followed his heart and stopped pretending he was the king of the little plastic castles
while education, missed in the house of the naked apes, evolved and mutated
into and with ~ Nature Art Love Truth ~ and we do too…
And somewhere over the rainbow dancing fools send clowns and purple rain
into imagine nations where everything is now sacred
and there are no more public enemies or rusted Roots or minor threats
or bad brains or busted rhymes or widespread panic
and everyone can read the hieroglyphics on the wall
and we are all refugees of courtney’s love attaining nirvana….
But then again, you’re so vain, you probly think this poem’s about you-
we are everywhere and we cannot be beaten
it’s all over now baby blue, all we need is Love
