  1. Only problem is no sweet little lies. Also you have great taste in music, but that's a whole other posting right.??

  2. "Michael was a good, kind person." There's a lot of that stuff out there on the news, I was expecting the Pope to fly in and canonize him at any minute. On the video, he just looks like a mark one, mod five thug.

    It's a good old song. Always liked Fleetwood Mac.

  3. As much as I denigrate cops I had been trying to keep an open mind about this Mo thing. Today I see I was wrong, just another garden variety canadian. We use the word canadian where I work as opposed to a certain word that will cause sudden unemployment.
    I think I remember it from the OJ trial, LAPD used it for the same reason.

    1. Hey, long time no see. Glad you are still alive and kicking. This whole thing reeked from the beginning. I figured it was going to be Trayvon, the Sequel. I'm not a big fan of the police myself, but I know they don't go around randomly shooting people. This officer is probably going to be thrown to the "wolves" (sort of like your "canadians") , regardless of what really happened. With Eric Holder running the "justice department" (how's that for an ironic name for that outfit) and Barack Hussein in the President's chair, the findings are predetermined. Then there are all the white guilt idiots who want "Michael" to be a nice guy and the police to be evil, so they can feel bad about it.

  4. Harry, the truth came out about "Tiny" , just another thug like Trayvon was.

    But we've all seen, once again, what the police are capable of. Arresting and ruffing up reporters, shooting rubber bullets at people who weren't rioting, constantly aiming their weapons at unarmed folks ...... all of these constitute felony assault if you or I do it and yet once again they get away with it because they wear blue.

    As much as I hate all this happened, it brought good coverage to the militarization of the police. I think the feds lost on this one. People aren't going to tolerate this kind of abuse..... at least I hope they won't.

    1. I notice that while conservatives have been complaining about militarizing the police, all it got them was ridicule on MSN and CNN. But now that it's blacks that are on the receiving end of that phenomenon, and not old white guys, suddenly we have bills going through the Senate like crap through a goose, to put an end to this "terrible process."

      I don't have a lot of sympathy for the people out burning down convenience stores and throwing molotovs either though. A pox on both their houses.

      To tell you the truth, I don't have much regard for reporters and I'd have liked to get a few kicks and punches in there, myself.

  5. I actually went almost a week without watching the news. I only learned about Robin Williams' death through social media. Then one of my friends from college posted that she was worried about her husband being out on the streets. He's a cop there. I'm still kind of clueless as to what happened, and why. I gather it was something like a cop shot at someone that shouldn't have been shot at. I really should look the story up. Cops to me are like anyone else, there are good ones, and bad ones.

    When we were leaving for our trip it was 5 AM, we went to get gas, and a cop sped through the gas station. He wasn't even getting gas. Then he went down a main street super fast. It was like he owned the road. He didn't have his sirens on. It pissed me off. What did that tell my kids that were sitting in the back seat? They probably didn't give it a care. They are observant only sometimes.

    As for my friend's husband in MO. I don't know him at all. He could be good, bad, and/or ugly for all I know.

    1. Alissa, it's been a real dog and pony show down there. It's Treyvon all over again. First, we're told by the main stream media that "the Gentle Giant" was just walking to his grandmothers when he was gunned down by a fascist white policeman.

      Then, despite the attempts of the state governor and the Eric Holder bunch to suppress the video and the story, a video comes out that shows this same character roughing up a store clerk and stealing from the store just minutes before he had the encounter with the police.

      Then "witnesses" say that Brown was trying to walk away with his hands up and was shot in the back. But three autopsies have shown all the wounds were to his front, and the policeman says the guy was charging him. Also, the autopsies showed Brown was high on weed at the time.

      Then a witness comes forward and says that the officers story is the correct version and the other people are basically making up their version.

      The whole thing reeks. There are good cops, bad cops and I try to avoid them all, but this is another example of "well, the victim was black so it can't be he did anything wrong, it has to be racism." I am pretty well sick of that nonsense.
