    Promise and Problems

    Self-proclaimed critics attempted to tie Michael Brown to the Gangsta Life of the rap songs and violence, concluding that a kid with no criminal record was no better than a thug. Perhaps these critics have forgotten about the past, when young children idolized the pirates of the 1700s, the cowboys of the 1800s Old West, and the gangsters, bank robbers and killers of the early 1900s for their criminal exploits.

    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.

Good news, folks. With a theme like Heart and Soul, I think it just about covers thousands of great tunes. Not quite free form, but there are so many to choose from, that it is pretty darned close.

Vox-Populi

Will Republicans try to impeach Obama? Will Europe finally take strong steps to confront Putin’s war machine? Will Michele Bachmann convince any reporters to ask her if she’s running in 2016? Chat about these issues and more tonight on Vox Populi!

Boehner Obama

The automatic impeachment declaration uses blank lines in the areas where charges against a future Democratic President should appear, and terms like “Enter Scandal Here”, “List Connections to Terrorists” and “Fill In Traitorous Act” are placed beneath the blanks, in parentheses.

In the cases where “Tea Party Republican” softball parents get what they want but their daughter’s lack of skills lead to losses, they console their daughters that they did everything right and someone else is to blame (Obama?).

Was such a horrendous act that could galvanize The West against Russia inevitable? Was it only a matter of time until a brutal, militaristic dictatorship such as Russia would go too far to get what it wants that it shocks the rest of the world into turning against it in unity?

I have always thought that legal pot would stop people from buying from a dealer who could be adding other drugs to it for some nefarious reason.  Making it legal could help some people who would like to try it for a medical reason. How do you feel about legalizing pot?
