Dude, there's 5.2 million results. And it doesn't look like any of them are cat videos.

10:30 -- my office had a fire drill today, I got a lot of exercise running down ten flights of stairs. There was a drugged-out panhandler outside, maybe under the influence of cocaine or marijuana, don't know what type of narcotic. When I got back upstairs, I realized I had less than an hour to get to LaGuardia Airport for my flight home for Thanksgiving.

Get ready for the dogpile ... lol

Most folks forget our consitutional scholar of a president has been the chief executive of this country for the last five years or so. Seems like a bunch of these developments occured on his watch.

one of many reasons why some police are not well loved in their community.

it's all so perfect, isn't it? What was it Will Rogers said, "People get the government they deserve"? and man, are we getting it, right up the pipe.

Will? No, it was Joseph de Maistre. Of course, Don Henley put it in "Month of Sundays" which is quite the haunting tune.

Thank you MTI for this reminder......

Don Henley - A Month of Sundays (Live at Farm Aid 1985) - YouTube


I used to work for Harvester
I used to use my hands
I used to make the tractors and the combines that plowed and harvested this great land
Now I see my handiwork on the block everywhere I turn
And I see the clouds 'cross the weathered faces and I watch the harvest burn


I quit the plant in '57
Had some time for farmin' then
Banks back then was lendin' money
The banker was the farmer's friend
And I've seen dog days and dusty days;
Late spring snow and early fall sleet;
I've held the leather reins in my hands and felt the soft ground under my feet
Between the hot dry weather and the taxes, and the Cold War it's been hard to make ends meet
But I always kept the clothes on our backs;
I always put the shoes on our feet


My grandson, he comes home from college
He says, We get the government we deserve.
My son-in-law just shakes his head and says, That little punk, he never
Had to serve.
And I sit here in the shadow of the suburbs and look out across these
Empty fields
I sit here in earshot of the bypass and all night I listen to the rushin'
Of the wheels


The big boys, they all got computers; got incorporated, too
Me, I just know how to raise things
That was all I ever knew
Now, it all comes down to numbers
Now I'm glad that I have quit
Folks these days just don't do nothin' simply for the love of it


I went into town on the Fourth of July
Watched 'em parade past the Union Jack
Watched 'em break out the brass and beat on the drum
One step forward and two steps back
And I saw a sign on Easy Street, said, Be Prepared to Stop.
Pray for the independent, little man
I don't see next year's crop
And I sit here on the back porch in the twilight
And I hear the crickets hum
I sit and watch the lightning in the distance
But the showers never come

I sit here and listen to the wind blow
I sit here and rub my hands
I sit here and listen to the clock strike,
And I wonder when I'll see my companion again

The President is responsible for lots of unpleasantness, but the militarization of civilian law enforcement didn't start on his watch.

You are absolutely correct Sir, however, his actions, his EOs, and signatures on various laws is a far, far cry from his pep rallies and PR image as the "consitutional scholar" of a president. Rather, he has put more nails in the liberty and freedom coffin than other presidents. When is the last nail going to be hammered in?

I'm not an expert on the constitution and so can't realistically make a call in that regard. Which laws? Which EOs?
My health insurance is going up. Nothing new there, and while it pisses me off, unless I'm mistaken not exactly a high crime or even a misdemeanor.
