G-20 in Pittsburgh

As some of you may know, the G-20 is going to be in Pittsburgh this week. The protesters are already camping out in various parks throughout the Pittsburgh area. Hopefully nothing crazy happens but I have a feeling some bad shi~ is going to go down within the next few days. I'm going to use this thread as witness of the G-20 Protests.

Two military helicopters just flew past my window at work. Also, I just found out on the radio that 600 Nation Guardsmen are going to help protect the city.

I'd trade the Falcons for them. Hell, I'd take the '76 Buccaneers and their 0 and 14 record for the Falcons.

You can have the Cowboys, but you have to room with Jerry Jones.

Quote:
The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services (today the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.
So much for that... maybe they're claiming this is "state service" even though it's a Federal event... I dunno... IANAL...

Mmmm... I don't see a problem with Brazil attacking as long as they bring me some capirinhas, pao de queijo, and feijoada. Just saying! And one of those sweet super-heavy singlespeed Brazilian-built Barraforte bikes.

This is the mask I'm wearing during the protest. You can tell it's authentic since I'm holding my sign upside down.

Oh, yeah, and the cheese. If they could bring me a whole bunch of coalho cheese in addition to all of the stuff previously mentioned, I will step aside and let the Brazilians have the USA.
