The Infamous Brad – Sometimes, When “All the Facts are In,” It’s Worse: The UC-Davis Pepper-Spray Report
Unsurprisingly, to me anyway, the UC-Davis Pepper-Spray incident turns out to be worse than it looked at the time. Sounds like it was a complete systematic breakdown that ended up getting taken out on peaceful protestors.
Oh, and you know how Pike claimed the protesters were preventing him from leaving? Yeah, turns out that was a lie as well. This guy should be in a jail cell, along with his superiors, for what he did. How is it, that after the events of the last century, “I was just following orders” is still accepted as a defense for ones actions?
This is my new favorite thing. Beautiful woman rocking out on a piano, in the most awesome boots I’ve ever seen at that. “How hard does she rock out?” I can hear you asking. Apparently so hard that she broke the low Eb string… on her grand piano… that is some damn hard rockin’.
On days like today, when I can’t help but despair at the direction my country is moving in, at least there’s Keith Olbermann there letting me know that I’m not alone. This man is like a fistful of aspirin, subduing the throbbing migraine that our dysfunctional political and media systems inspire. I can only hope that his impassioned rationality can win out over the pandering that exists everywhere else.
Since election season is gearing up yet again… and politics cause my blood pressure to shoot upwards, here’s a link that (while somewhat old) accurately summarizes my feelings about the South.
So… you thought you were voting for Republicans to get government off your back huh? Apparently that’s not what Republicans thought you elected them for. They thought you elected them to be dictators.
How’s that “small government” conservatism taste in real life?
