The Stormtroopers are Busy

Remember a couple months ago I told you about the Tampa Tribune story about a private army of 4500 well-trained, well-armed thugs being trained by our new mayor? These, I can only call them mercenaries armed with chemical weapons, were "intended" to prevent us citizens from exercizing our civil rights at next year's Teapublibot Convention. Aged pretty boy Bob Buckhorn (I kid you not, he is an old person's version of dubya) was spouting nearly Dirty Harry-esque lines, actually bragging about preemptive violence.

Patriots and TakeTheirNots

Dear Thom,

When you were talking today about the Occupy protester being Patriots, I thought we should have a name for those who have been robbing us blind and who we are protesting, and then it came to me. They take what is not theirs and thus are TakeTheirNots.

Feel free to use or enhance if you come up with a better version.
