Cricket, who won the Chihuahua race last
year, loses badly to Pancho Villa, who goes
to San Diego in August to represent Seattle.
Another young man, 24 year old graduate student, dies from being tasered. He was said to be fighting with police. I don’t know how many people have died from police tasers since they were introduced, but I know they number in the hundreds, including children and old people. It seems to be especially dangerous to look like you might be aggressively approaching the police. I thought tasers were invented as non-lethal ways of subduing criminals. Did someone forget to tell the police?
Is dying from being tasered better than dying from police fire? Three policemen shot an unarmed young black man 50 times as he emerged from a strip club the night before his wedding. Fifty times! He was apparently also drunk. A judge exonerated the policemen completely. Can anyone explain how it could possibly be necessary to shoot an unarmed drunk man 50 times? I’m sorry, but I absolutely cannot see any possible justification for this. Of course, they also fairly recently shot to death a 92 year old woman in a wheelchair. True, she shot at them. They broke down her door and entered her home looking for drugs. It was apparently not the right house. I guess 92 year old women in wheelchairs should not be allowed to own guns. Even so, the favorite prey of law enforcement seems to be young unarmed black men. It appears there is rarely any punishment for this. Young black men who are not already in jail must, ipso facto, be up to no good.
I read somewhere that Nancy Pelosi likes George W. Bush, really likes him personally, or so it was claimed. I guess that’s one reason she doesn’t want to see him impeached. I guess, as they say, “they’re no accounting for taste.” This is a man who as a child enjoyed blowing up frogs. As Governor of Texas he set a record for executions with very little review of the cases, and in one case actually mocked a woman who pleaded for her life. He has failed at everything he has attempted, including the Presidency of the U.S. He has the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent people on his hands. He has shown no empathy or remorse for any of his war crimes, including torture. He is almost certainly borderline retarded. Nancy Pelosi likes him. If you get the chance, vote for Cindy Sheehan, who seems to have at least a semblance of a brain, unlike Pelosi.
The farce drags on and on. Clinton refuses to give up. She thinks this makes her a fighter. It actually makes her either a fool or the wicked witch of corporate America. What it all comes down to now is whether Americans will elect an African-American as President or not. Obama is inevitably going to win the nomination unless Clinton and her merry band of racists can somehow demonstrate that he is (1) non electable, (2) too inexperienced, or (3) something terrible happens to him before the convention. As they can’t count on 3, and as 2 is simply nonsensical, all they can go for is 1. Why would he be not electable? Because he’s black. That is, according to them, he can’t win the votes of older women and working class men. Why not? Because he’s black. Or, they say he can’t win the popular vote. He’s black. He can’t win the big states. He’s black. No other assumption makes sense. Because he lost some big states to Clinton doesn’t mean he will necessarily lose them in the general election. Just because working class men and older women seem to prefer Clinton to Obama doesn’t mean they will necessarily prefer McCain to Obama. All of their arguments and attempts to change the rules and move the goal posts, and slime Obama, cannot change the fact that he will certainly have the most delegates, and if they play by the rules that means he will get the nomination. If Clinton ;believes that if she can ruin Obama she will get the nomination I believe she is sadly mistaken. By that time, if that time comes, she will have burned all her bridges to the point that she won’t ever get the nomination, not even in 2012.
