The good people of Egypt had reached the limit of their acceptance, they took to the streets in protest. After 18 days of protest Hosni Mubarak stepped down after almost 30 years as president.
And the good people of Egypt rejoiced. The control of Egypt was transferred to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
Soon elections were held and Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was declared winner.
And the good people of Egypt rejoiced.
But the joy was short lived, Morsi began implementing Muslim law. This was not the democracy the good people of Egypt had voted for.
Today there are over 41,000 Egyptians in prison as political prisoners. But fear not they had another vote and the military commander promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood won with something like 96.6 percent of the vote. 😉
We as Americans can hold our heads high in thanks that we live in an open free society. We are constantly told “they” fight us because “they” are jealous of our freedoms.
But the links below tend to show a different picture, don’t you think?

Arresting protesters in Wisconsin
Moral Mondays in North Carolina
These are just a few of the methods being used to restrict our rights.
How long before we find our citizens put in prison for political actions? If you remember the young lady from occupy (Cecily McMillan) you may think it is already upon us.
Hang in there my friends, better days are coming. Time to rejoice? Methinks,not yet.
Happy Tiananmen Square day to all the peoples of the world fighting for the right to peacefully demonstrate.
