Have you Seen The Little Piggies?

john pikeThis is officer John Pike. On November 18th he casually walked up to a group of University of California Davis students, who happened to be quietly sitting on the ground participating in an exercise of their freedoms, and sprayed them with tear gas like they were roaches. (See video below.)

spraying UC david students with tear gas

The students refused to move so officer Pike, along with his police colleagues, proceeded to hold the students down and spray tear gas down their throats.

Yeah, that kinda bothers me, too.

Lieutenant John Pike

I leave you with this:

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

- Frank Zappa

Yes, the annual deficit would shrink to almost nothing if we simply let the Bush tax cuts for the god damn rich expire.



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 #111 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.

(111) 11-21-2011: The Republican half of the Supercommittee refuses to give up the Bush tax cuts. As long as the 1% keeps raking in the dough everyone else will suffer, and they just LOVE that.

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.
