His grandmother was forced to fill out an alien registration form.

In the spirit of Easter, I thought I'd put together a list of all the ways in which my rabbit - whose name is Biscuit -  is smarter than most of "my fellow Americans." This might seem slapstick or silly, but it is not. It is 100% truth. 

1. Suspicious of power - unlike 99.9999% of everyone I meet, my rabbit is very suspicious of power. I have the power in our relationship, and whenever I appear out of the corner of his eye, even though I think we get along quite well, he freezes.  He watches.

For millions it is already too late.

They won't realize the geopolitical winds which are now blowing.  Off in their own lala land, the average American will be focused on sports, celebrities, what the right amount of stealing (taxes) in society is, gay rights, which foreign countries "we" should bomb next, the first woman president, and so on and so forth, while their livelihoods are sacrificed in the name of the US government.

All of a sudden the government lays claims to your savings. They can't prove you owe them a dime, but you're deprived due process. The legal bills become overwhelming, and so you let your money be stolen. You simply have no choice.

This was the scene recently in Madrid, Spain, as tens of thousands of people took to the streets to fight against the budget cuts and tax increases put into place by Mariano Rajoy, the current Prime Minister of Spain. The protesters chanted “no more cuts” as they demolished storefronts and threw firecrackers at police.
