Low-Info MoFos: Random Interviews with Your Fellow Citizens Who Still Support Obama

Yes, you do have to be "special" to still support Obama. Yes, these are your fellow citizens. Yes, they do have the right to vote. Yes, you can now set yourself on fire.

Three minutes is all I could take. These folks are wayhay beyond the punch in the face treatment.
There won't be a vote in these neighborhoods, there will be some handlers with plates of brats and tubs of beer leading the half-dead, un-dead, oughta-be-dead voters to the Fisher-Price voting booths. New-Old Black Panthers standing around making sure persons of no color don't interfere.

Right you are, Andrew. Bitchin' man.

I'll leave the surprise for the viewer, but consider that the youtube guy is actually a lot more coherent.

Ponder the significance of that!

The newsies look for people like this. Could you imagine having interviews on local events with Churchillian sounding characters.

I think I already live a parallel life. I lasted 2.5 mins.

Do not mistake privileges for rights.
Privileges are bestowed.
Rights are inherent.
Privileges can be revoked.
Rights cannot.

Rights are wrestled from those who are too weak to keep them. Unfortunately in this country far too many people are giving away their rights for a little comfort.
When they do that it makes it harder for the rest of us to keep ours.

Forche is a civil rights advocate and offered this prose poem to reach out and affect readers, stir them from their slumbers. I cannot vouch for her political alignment; I thought this poem was good.

The quote I used above was taken out of context and used for its shock value. Here is a summary of her prose-poem. http://www.shmoop.com/colonel-forche/summary.html You can google as I did to get the whole picture.

I got it! I been lookin' at that picture of the long-haired guy in the video and I realized where I have seen him. He's the guy was featured on AD as a "citizen" of The Slab. That hinky place in southern Cali where folks that are off the radar live. Seems this guy intervened in a road rage gone bad situation a couple years back where he stopped an angry motorist from rolling over people with his vehicle. He dragged the driver out and whacked him 'long side the head with his hatchet IIRC. He was fairly articulate but way off in his world view.

That guy is not off the radar any more insofar as prison is ON the radar. He was busted for murder last year in a case unrelated to the motorist he hit on the head with his hatchet.
