Protect What? Serve Who? You Talkin' to Me?

violent new york city policeman
he image above illustrates the calm, professional, tolerant face of the New York City Police Department as it goes about its business of assisting the members of Occupy Wall Street understand the true meaning of the Bill of Rights. (Click for larger image.)

Here's another photo of this same policeman. As you can see his knuckles are raw from punching defenseless kids in the head all night. It is the picture of a man who really enjoys his work. (At least in Seattle the police display proper etiquette by pepper-spraying the elderly instead of punching them in the face.)

We do not pay the police to act like thugs for the benefit of corporations. We pay them to protect the people and maintain order, not actively cause disorder. If we the people decide to congregate in large numbers in public parks and decry injustice then the role of the officer is to direct traffic. End of story.

I understand that the nation's police are just like everyone else. They have families to feed and mortgages to pay but when they're asked to attack innocent Americans just because someone running forced-abortion sweatshops in the Marianas isn't comfortable with our citizenry acting democratically then the police are obliged to say "No". If not, then they're the enemy of the people and should be treated as such.


And now our "Chart of the Day":

GOP vacation chart

Note that when the Republicans took control of the House last November one of their first actions was to reduce the number of days they would work. Not that it made any difference as they've done nothing except impede the nation's economic recovery for the past eleven months.



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #109 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(109) 11-16-2011: The House is wasting your time pushing a bill that makes it even easier for people to carry concealed weapons from state-to-state. Can you say "Raw-Meat-Dog- Whistle?". Can you also say "Gabrielle Giffords?"

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.


Dump Fox News

Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? This is what a fascist propaganda machine looks like. It's a Fox News screen-shot during the raids on Occupy Wall Street last night. Classy. Really classy.

Hello? Mr. Jackson? This is Helen in human resources. We have the results of your urine tests and I'm afraid it came back positive for both decency and trace amounts of intelligence. As this violates our zero tolerance policy I'm afraid we have no need of your services at this time, but thank you for considering the New York Police Department.
