When the police are out of control who you gonna call?

Who will protect the public when the police violate the law?
~Ramsey Clark

You have to watch this to believe it. "Stop resisting, stop resisting, stop resisting," as the 64 year old man lays on the floor in agonizing pain. All because he fell on a step. When the police are out of control who you gonna call? This is a case of police engaging in an assault. Injustice wheather by the police, politicians, or media is injustice but when it becomes a physical assault it requires redress. These are the people we turn to when we are in trouble, hurt or in danger but when they turn on the people that they are sworn to protect that becomes a heinous crime. Police that act thus demean all law enforcement. Law enforcement must be held to the highest standard or we sink to the level of a third world banana republic with a police force, that everyone fears, no one trusts of can respect.

Same shit, same hypocrisy, same lies

"That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history."
~Aldous Huxley

I guess history repeats or are people just too stupid to look to history and understand the present? There is nothing new except the players. Same shit, same hypocrisy, same lies, distortions and half truths from the Good Old Party or Gay Old Party.

This cartoon was in the Chicago Tribune in 1934. Look carefully at the plan of action in the lower left corner.






















Remember the adage:
"Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it".
Exactly like it is happening now.

Oh Yea, real intelligent, Tea Party.


Another Brilliant mind????



Comment:
The cartoon is a catchy artistic opinion reflecting the viewpoint against spending by the Fed’l Gov’t during the time of the Great Depression… However, further insight shows that investment by FDR during the mid 1930s eventually pulled the economy forward, prior to US entry into WWII. To note FDR did stopped spending in 1937, concerned about balanced budgets and deficit spending (sound familiar???), but it caused a recession…

Timeline complied by Steve Kangas from the Resurgence Magazine (see link below) provides a snapshot of the Great Depression ERA (1920s – 1940s)…
