Unrest in Hungary, coup in Thailand, silence in USA

Last night, when I came back from my supper break, I heard a radio report noting that rioters were running wild in Budapest, Hungary. Details were sketchy and it caught my attention because my brother is living there.

So, I went and checked the Internet and found out why they were rioting - because socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany had candidly admitted that he and his government had totally lied about the Hungarian economy in order to be re-elected. Gyurcsany was taped saying: "We lied morning, noon and night." He also said they had accomplished nothing for the past two-and-a-half years.

My brother said he was only nominally aware of the violence and protests. He said he'd keep us posted.

Then, half-way across the globe in normally stable Thailand, a military coup took over that country's government while Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was in New York attending the United Nations General Assembly. It is unclear at this time what this coup means or what will happen when Shinawatra returns. This is one to watch.

And then in our country, the United States of America, your average Joe or Jill is wandering about totally unaware of the tyranny that is being installed in our great Republic. WAKE UP AMERICA, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
