THANKS BIG GUY

The practice of commemorating events with special annual celebrations of lessons to be learned and virtues gained by future generations would seem to be as humanely benevolent as the wish to end world wide starvation. With the exception of Halloween’s celebrating the pagan attitude that life is play, I find that modern, western civilization’s year is loaded to the gills with holidays to exercise self serving hypocrisy and opportunistic exploitation. Today begins the great American consumer's surge of the forty days of thingathon with a kick off feast to thank the creator for the land he made specially for us by consuming a great variety of the life forms with which we share the earth that are not as equal as us. Thanks big guy. Our Weekly Reader explains that when the divinely guided pilgrims arrived on the shores of Lake Gitchyergunnout the savages had a park bench all laid out with a feast of the local cuisine in a show of appreciation for being rescued from their godless ways. And to this day, children, we celebrate Thanksgiving to remember how thankful we should be that the pilgrims tolerated sitting at a table with naked people at least until the meal was over before they wiped them out.

And now in a modern version of the spirit that won the west I give you this little wake up as to what is going on over here while dribblya fights terriers over there.

That really makes me sick! I'd love to know the outcome. Poor guy.

burbanmom, guess you didn't watch the video.

lilwave, the video IS the outcome of a government policy of terror. The victim in this case happens to be a lone passive resister standing up for his rights and being knocked down by assumption of undeserved authority. There are many such cases of the expedience of brutality overwhelming citizens rights at every peaceful protest or rally. Unless you keep up with Democracy Now or have access to highway patrol car video tapes such demonstrations and their abuses probably come as a brand new shock for both the abuses inflicted and the deliberate spinning and stifling of such news through the mainstream media/propaganda awaiting official word on what to tell he faithful what to believe. If you change "mainstream media" to priesthood and "official" to God's you'll see a reflection of where the government got its ideal.

I am sure you have got this wrong G&G. Did you not see the the obvious threat that this unarmed driver posed to Officer Fuckwit? He could have had any number of weapons about his person - wallet, small change, candy wrappers etc which could cause a nasty injury.
Officer Fuckwit is a very important person, didn't you know?

Oh, and concerning Thanksgiving - it should be us here in the UK that is celebrating. We sent you all those boring Quakers in the first place - oops!

hmmm Catholicism? lol Darn those controlling religious freaks.....

Okay, I'm not a naive idiot. I'm well aware of the injustice of our failing system. You don't need Democracy Now or any other media to be aware of it. It's everywhere if you just look around. This is obviously a bully officer with a new toy in which he was looking for the first opportunity to try it out. That's what happens when you have video game trained officers enforcing the "shut up and do as I say" policies. Thank God they gave him something to shoot other than his firearm. (I'm thinking they need to remove Barney's bullets too.) I was just wanting to know if the guy got any justice after this tape was reviewed.
