MemeSlave: At some point, don't we run out of brown people?

It's like bamboo or something.

In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check.

Furthermore, all children under 16 years old are now... 16 years old!

Smackledorfer: Spaced Lion: When the government fears the people, you have liberty.

iaazathot: Wow, can we do this to Congress?

We could, but SWAT and the National Guard would start mowing people down like wheat. And then the protestors would be portrayed as worthless hippie welfare leeches, enough people would believe it, and nothing would come of it.

Nah, they would just focus media attention on the undesirables (like the car-pooper in OWS) and marginalize the movement. If that wouldn't be enough the movement would be absorbed into a political party.

Our political system works. It only looks like it is failing due to apathetic voters and ignorance - and no system can prevent that without giving up democracy.

We have the congress we want.

Because they're the Congress America deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll mock them. Because they deserve it. Because they're not our Congress. They're silent filibusters, watchful lobbyists . The derp knights.

The folly of President-elect Morsi
Was thinking he'd govern by force,see
But further reflection,
About his selection,
Led to this: Uhhh....That's gonna cost me!

Djkb: Does this mean everything is ok over there now?

Pretend you went on vacation, and you gave your keys to a friend so he could house-sit for you.

While you were away, he let a robbery crew in to take all your stuff.

When you got back, you were pissed, so he said "I'm real sorry, here, you can have your keys back. We're cool now, right?"

Your stuff is Egypt's constitutional referendum. The damage is done.

abb3w: StreetlightInTheGhetto: And only 7 people died. Some kind of progress.
Geometric would be nice.

Why not go for linear? Next revolution there will be people being born in the streets! I bet Morsi's good for a couple population explosions in the next few months.

/Or some kind of explosions anyway

themindiswatching: Rincewind53: Wow. He blinked. I didn't think he would.

He probably saw the news that the military might step in and panicked.

Pretty sure he doesn't get his info from the news. I'm guessing a general called him and said to cut that shait out.
