I love Steve Ray

A good man, a good friend, and the salt of the earth. The man is fearless. There aren’t many people I can confidently say would go to their tortured death shouting the Creed and praying for his murderers (and certainly not me, who you will probably find curled in a fetal position). But Steve Ray [Read More...]

Nixon Steps in to Rein in Warrior Cops

The heavy riot armor, the SWAT trucks with sniper posts, the hostile glares: tonight in Ferguson they were gone. A stunning change in tone radiated through the suburban streets where protests had turned [Read More...]

Conflicting Gun Violence Narratives

So, a couple of years ago, the jiu jitsu on the Right about gun violence against blacks was the standard “We need more guns” panacaea that always comes from Gun Culture.  Here’s the inimitable Ann Coulter issuing the standard party line: All would be well if black people went around armed to the teeth, ready [Read More...]

France, Australia, even Syria are opening the doors to Iraqi refugees

But still the Obama Administration is doing nothing to give asylum to the desperate refugee population that the US, more than any country in the world, is responsible for creating. I hear the president is having a very restful vacation. [Read more...]

When did Missouri become an Iron Curtain Country?

News crew tear gassed and their equipment dismantled. What’s interesting and creepy (to me as a blogger) is that as real journalists are harrassed and intimidated and arrested by the Glorious Democratic Police Army of Ferguson, the reportage depends on private citizen with cellphone, Twitter and Youtube. The problem is that a lot of this [Read More...]

Weaponized Goon Police in Ferguson, MO

…protect the living daylights out of reporters and journalists who were typing very, very dangerously When our police state decides you are allowed to know what they are doing, selected State Information Agents will be permitted to repeat what they are told.

The American Conservative on the latest bushwah…

…from the now completely incredible war party spokesmen McCain, Graham, and King, who again want to plunge the US into war in Iraq: If ISIS’ gains are truly an “existential threat” to the republic and our cities are about to “go up in flames,” why did these Republican hawks not demand that President Obama call [Read More...]

Pewsitter Headline: “Robin Williams: Rest in Peace?”

I’m afraid even Pewsitter can only hope that he is in hell.  It must be such a torment to them not to be able to know for sure. Perhaps they can console themselves with the torment they inflict on grieving people with headlines like that. Reactionary Catholics:  Always there to make sure that hurting people hurt worse.
