GUN HAPPY PG COUNTY COPS SHOOT THE DOGS

(AP) Police raid Md. mayor’s home and kill his dogs

It’s so rare when your local news makes the national headlines. But, you can always depend on the Prince George’s County cops! PG County, Maryland usually makes the papers every six months or so for the use of excessive force by County Police. It seems they’ve never heard of the concept “innocent until proven guilty” over there. A perp is a perp–we wouldn’t be going to arrest them if they weren’t guilty. Well, it seems there were these two guys with a marijuana smuggling op. One was a FedEx driver. He’d leave the package addressed to someone picked at random, who wouldn’t be home, and his partner would come by and scoop up the delivery. Well, the other day, they left a package at the house of the mayor of Berwyn Heights MD, Cheye Calvo, addressed to his wife. He picked it up on his way home and brought it inside. Well, it seems the cops were onto the two smugglers — sort of — and the next thing you know, they busted down the doors, handcuffed the mayor in his underwear, and “frightened by his vicious Labrador Retrievers,” shot them dead. VICIOUS LABS? Labs are known for licking the hands of burglars! Well, the whole thing is being investigated for civil rights violations–the mayor and his wife are HiSPANic–but the County, true to form, has defended the actions of its soldiers, I mean police officers, for following the rules of engagement–darn, I meant proper police procedure, and hasn’t even offered an apology for the dead dogs. They did allow that the Calvos may have been innocent victims, but they had not ruled out involvement…
And they wonder WHY we don’t all think Ivins was guilty of the anthrax letters?

CRASH
Everyone on the right has been jumping all over Wesley Clark for suggesting that perhaps being shot down and captured, imprisoned and tortured is not necessarily a qualification for leading a nation. Well, let’s face it. IT AIN’T. Although some people are questioning what went on during McCain’s years of confinement–and indeed, his support of the Bush Administration’s torture policies makes one wonder–until there is solid evidence to the contrary, John McCain is a war hero in my books. But is that a qualification for leading a nation? Not just any nation, but the most powerful in the world, and one which is embroiled in a really bad mistake by our Idiot-In-Chief. Correct that, make it whole MESS of mistakes, stupidities, and panderings to the greed class by our Idiot-In-Chief. John McCain’s war record shows how patriotic and courageous he is. And yes, our president ought to be patriotic. But the real qualifications are his intelligence, his leadership, his willingness to work with our lawmakers and with other heads of state. This posturing by the Republican Party is simply an attempt to limit debate. And Barack Obama was stupid for kneejerk repudiation of Clark’s common sense statement.

When Your Mouth Gets THAT Big, It’s Hard To Say What’ll Come Out Of It

Oooooo the right wing has a new word, “appeaser”. Seems anyone who talks to a country we have difficulties with is an appeaser. Son of Neville Chamberlain, who tried to prevent WWII by appeasing Hitler. Seems they remember what Teddy Roosevelt said a little differently than I’d heard: Speak loud and if they don’t listen, thwack ’em with a big stick.

Seems Hamas said–quite understandably–that they hoped Obama was elected because it was the only way they could see they might get a fair shake. We’re talking about the people who got kicked off their own land 60 years ago. Happy Birthday Israel. And if you don’t think our country’s policies have been pro-Israel, just read Georgie’s address to the Kenesset. But anyway, both McCain and Georgie took the concept that Obama might actually TALK to Hamas and have turned him into an “appeaser.” Georgie practically accused him of starting the Holocaust single-handedly.

It’s gotten so bad that Christ Matthews has briefly found his brain again and gotten thoroughly disgusted at the way the right wing is handling things Chris Matthews Eviscerates Right-Wing Host Kevin James Over Obama “Appeasement” Claims. Seems this radio “host” is all for calling Obama an appeaser but really has no concept what an appeaser is, except something you don’t want to be. Chris tries to get James to say exactly what it was that Neville Chamberlain DID that made him such a terrible person and the guy literally COULDN’T ANSWER except to repeat and repeat and repeat that he appeased Hitler. See the video on the Huffington Post for a good laugh.

Now I’ve got a word for the Right Wing. Any of you remember back in the school yard? If you had a problem with another kid, you worked it out. Sometimes you worked it on with your fists, but more often you talked through it. But there was one kid you couldn’t work it out with. The Bully. He was the one who never worked it out–it was always his way or get creamed. Oh, you don’t remember? Hmmm, that means you were probably the one who nobody could work it out with–or one of his toadies.

Think it over.
