Another Historic Example of the 1% Turning Members of the 99% Against Each Other (VIDEO)

If blue-collar cops in this country really buy the idea that the OWS movement is contrary to their personal and professional interests, it would seem that the 1% have once again, effectively turned some of the 99% against each other.

Cop Tases 14 Year Old Girl, When Her Hands Are Up (VIDEO)

I don’t want to say that cops are out of control. I don’t want to say that they are treating American citizens as Abu Ghraib prisoners. I don’t want to say that because I don’t actually believe that. I still believe that the majority of police officers are in their jobs for the right reason, to Protect and to Serve the public. That being said, videos like this are hard to swallow, and we’ve seen far too many of them lately.

Fox News ‘Accidentally’ Puts Obama In Graphic Instead Of Romney (VIDEO)

I think Fox News needs to consider making some serious changes in the graphics department. In the past, they’ve done some crazy things, but lately…First they had this fail in graphs, trying to tell us that 9% unemployment is pretty much exactly the same thing as 8.6% unemployment. Then they called Utah, Nevada. This one though, has to win the prize.

Time Magazine Names ‘The Protester’ Person of The Year, Forgets Wisconsin Movement

Time Magazine Names ‘The Protester’ Person of The Year, Forgets Wisconsin Movement

I agree with this ‘Person of the Year’ choice. But as I read the story and the attached sub articles, I realized something shocking. The article moves from the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Greece, Spain, and elsewhere overseas to Occupy Wall Street. Unfortunately, in this they missed a key piece of the pie making this story unable to be considered on ‘The Protester’ and more on ‘Selected bits and pieces of the protests.’

Unfortunately, there is no date on the link, but if you click through, to the link within the article, you’ll see that it was dated January 7, 2011, almost a year ago. It was about the 2011 budget.

I Guess ‘Zany’ is Mormon-Speak for ‘Batshit Crazy’

‘Zany is not what we need in a president. Zany is great in a campaign. It’s great on talk radio. It’s great in print, it makes for fun reading,’ Mr. Romney told The New York Times. ‘But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together.’

Unearthed Old Video Of Mitt Romney Describing Himself As A ‘Moderate Republican’

In running for governor, Romney knew all too well that liberal Massachusetts was not about to elect a die-hard, right-winger so in his campaign for the State’s highest office, he continually reassured voters that he was one of those moderate Republicans who identified with the GOP because of its responsible, conservative fiscal policies, not its angry-intolerant-right-wing social agenda.
