    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.

    “These ISIS guys, they won’t be armed, right? I mean, we’re seasoned Ferguson cops, we’re used to dealing harshly with groups of unarmed enemies, we’re great at that.”

    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.

The business of our nation is still up, down or indifferent. The 4th of July has been duly celebrated, so I thought an “anything goes,” theme would be just the ticket.

Vox-Populi

It’s been another big news week, young people from Central America flooding over the borders, Benhazimania hits a major roadblock and John Boehner investing heavily in tantrum futures. Much to discuss tonight in our weekly live chat on the week’s events, Vox Populi.

Hillary 2

In 2007 I was initially all in for Hillary but ended up going with Barack Obama. Hillary’s record, policies and style did not wear well with me. Will 2015 be different?

On October 22, 2022, New York is the last bastion of what was once a free country. Within hours, the last bastion of free society has capitulated. They tried, they really did but fighting a new President who has the military at his disposal, militia and the National Guard now under his control as well as the Joshua Brigade, the 22 states that were a hold out and refused to remain with this new America, had no chance in a losing proposition against the new Christian-based government.

America Poster

In Dineesh D’Souza’s newest (and awful) “psuedo-documentary”, on September 11, 1777 (yeah! 9/11) General George Washington is gunned down by a British assassin and in the next few moments we see the Statue of Liberty and the Faces of Mt. Rushmore crumble like dust into the air

Thad_Cochran_official_photo

Chris McDaniel’s campaign manager and Mississippi state Senator, Melanie Sojourner, took to Facebook on Independence Day – not to express her patriotism but to swear she will never ever endorse Thad Cochran.

Hillary Clinton2

Hillary and Bill Clinton are incredibly wealthy people who move in the circles of the same wealthy and powerful who have inordinate control over our democracy and society, they are friends and peers with them…so is it most likely that if elected, she’s going to hammer her best friends to help “the others”?

Medicare_and_Medicaid_GDP_Chart

We can scream about republican recalcitrance, but when we had power (albeit brief), we spent it developing policies that favored the 1% and submarined any efforts to punish those who robbed the bottom 99% percent of their lifesavings. We created the stimulus which was trickle-down lite.

C-Kabat

Father Carl Kabat, an 80 year old priest who has spent some 17 years in prison for protesting against war and weapons, spent the Fourth of July spattering red paint across a sign at a Kansas City plant just opened.

SCOTUS’ Hobby Lobby decision hurt but there is a far more dangerous threat working its way through the courts that could kill most subsidies.

Welcome once again folks to another Weekend Music Thread. Fortunately we have fought the good fight this past year long enough to see another Independence Day celebration. A truly momentous day in American history. A celebration of a monumental achievement by our founders.
