    The Revolution Will Be Crimina

    Apparently, revolution and guns are only good things when in the hands of white people. Can you imagine what would be happening in Ferguson, MO right now if those protesting over the murder of Michael Brown openly carried rifles and hand guns in their protests?

    The Police States of America

    The militarization of police forces has turned them from a philosophy of protecting and serving the community to responding to even minor situations en masse with armored vehicles, military gear and combat uniforms complete with helmets and gas masks and we see an America that only used to live in dark science fiction stories.

    Why Preventing Genocide Isn't

    What if ISIS was invading Jordan or Israel or even somewhere in Europe and on a genocidal march through the country, would President Obama be just as much of a hypocrite if he acted against them then? Are hypocrisy and conscience conditional based on what the latitude and longitude is of a terrorist-driven slaughter?

    The real issue here is that when you criticize white people in power for using their power to further oppress black people, you’re being racist. After all, aren’t you attacking only white people when you do so?

AdLib : Night Murph! MurphTheSurf3 : Time for me to call it a night. Early mornings now. AdLib : Sleep well, pal! SmotPoker : OK. Thanks AdLib. We’ll see you around. I’m gonna split as well then. AdLib : Well, guess it’s about that time to close up the Vox […]

Vox-Populi

So much happened this week, from Donald Sterling being slam dunked to Jeb Bush trying to elbow Chris Christie out of the GOP Presidential nomination. The Ukraine strikes back against The Putin Empire and Republicans snorted up another imaginary line of Benghazi Meth. Join us tonight to discuss it all on Vox Populi!

It is a disgrace that we ask these people to fight and then when they get back to America they are abandoned.

Sterling-Bundy

Some possible team names that have been floated by Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy for their new racist basketball league include, “The Charleston Chattel”, “The Houston Butlers” and “The Tennessee Involuntaries”.

Whatever your inclination, post your favorite tunes featuring the saxophone or just saxophone backround. Lots of great sax music out there, so pour a glass of your favorite wine, or break out the vaporizer (or both).

Cliven Bundy: “My favorite comedy? Don’t know if this counts but I went to a movie last years thinkin’ it was a comedy but I was the only one laughin’. Think it was called ‘Twelve Years a Slave’.”

This man, Tom Steyer is a very wealthy man who will back Democrats against the Keystone XLPipeline. So who will benefit from the Keystone Pipeline? Who will be hurt? First, the rich oil corporations and the very wealthy will benefit. Second, the middle class, working poor, and poor will be hurt. Farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and small businesses will also be hurt.

supreme-court

Thought “The Death Panel” was a right wing hoax? Nope. The SCOTUS became a real death panel, allowing states to refuse expanding Medicaid to let the uninsured working poor die from medical neglect. The ongoing deaths of thousands of Americans will now be a dark legacy of The Roberts Court.

Putin crosseyed

“Reality poses a threat to Russia and its future so purely as a matter of self-defense, I have ordered Russian troops to move to the border of Reality and stand ready to use force to defend our country,” Putin declared.

Peace Hands

The majority of people around the world don’t believe in the mindset of violence we’ve seen in the Ukraine, Syria and all around the world. so on this Easter weekend, this weekend’s music thread asks, “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding?”

Parker from central Idaho aims his weapon from a bridge as protesters gather by the Bureau of Land Management's base camp near Bunkerville
