    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.

What do you suppose he is hiding? Why is all the information about him classified? Was he treated differently than other POW’s? Why is he such a “hawk”?

John Boehner has had one goal during his Speakership: Keep the Speaker’s Gavel. That’s it. So he did what he had to do to get past last week’s Immigration Crisis vote to avoid a vote of confidence on his Speakership.
