President Obama: Weigh in on #OWS and our Burgeoning Police State

When even Shepard Fairey, the creator of the 2008 Obama “Hope” poster weighs in to hold President Obama accountable, you know we're on to something.  This morning, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the U.S. is deeply concerned about the violence and is calling for restraint on all sides. He says despite the clashes between security forces and protesters, Egypt must proceed with a timely transition to democracy.

From Tahrir Square to UC Davis, It’s Newt’s Kind of World

There's a lot of these going around.  By these, I mean Fun with Photoshop™ pictures of Pepper Spraying Pike - the UC Davis cop responsible for this piece of tragedy: The chicken shit cop with the pepper spray is one UC Davis police Lt.

This Is Not My America

I'm still in shock over the NYPD's brutality this weekend.  I grew up learning about the unique rights we have here in the United States. Chief among them is our freedom of speech, which includes our rights of peaceful assembly and protest. This weekend in NYC the police brutally assaulted young people exercising their rights, and corralled a group of women who were breaking no laws while a police captain - Anthony Bologna -  violated them by spraying them with pepper spray.  The video is below, in an entry posted Saturday evening. This morning, I came upon USLaw.com, who slowed [...]
