Cock-eyed optimist with occasional bouts of despair

Re: “Listen to audio from surgeon general arrest

This is ridiculous. The man was in his own house. They FORCED him to come outside, and then claimed 'PUBLIC INTOXICATION'?! There is no doubt in my mind that they were pandering to whoever hired the rent-a-cop. I freakin' despise bullies ... scratch a bully and you get a belligerent, insecure twit every single time. When a citizen cannot ask someone suspicious in a black 'bully-mobile' to leave their property without the lurker calling the cops on them ... when a citizen is not free to imbibe in their own home without being forced out of that house and arrested for P.I., then my friends, we have a police state.

Re: “The surgeon general's crime: 'Getting in security guard's face'

Let me see if I've got this right ... a guy in a black Tahoe was lurking in the street outside a citizen's home. Said citizen, while remaining on his own property, asked the guy to leave (I'd have probably called the cops on the lurker, myself), and the LURKER called the cops and mentioned that he was armed (at least twice, that I could hear, which made it extra chilling). And the homeowner/citizen was arrested for essentially DEFENDING HIS PROPERTY?!

Sheeesh! Good thing for the Paladin wannabe that this didn't happen in Florida or Oklahoma or one of the 30 other 'stand your ground' states ... the citizen/homeowner could have blown that lurker away and he would undoubtedly not only have been spared the indignity of being arrested, but would have probably gotten a public service award. If I see someone skulking around, apparently scoping my home out, I'm going to feel threatened, aren't you?

Dim, incredibly freakin' dim. This 'militia mentality' is the reeking residue of the rampant paranoia that's been force-fed and nurtured by the rabid right, and it's bearing bitter fruit.

Re: “Democrat-Gazette to drop columnist Pat Lynch

mountaingirl, may I add a hearty, if tongue-in-cheek, 'AMEN' to that. Brookshires does the same thing, and it irks me no end. If I want to hear religious music, I'll go to church, or play it on my own music system. Hobby Lobby's and Brookshire's obnoxious religiosity has prompted me to shop at Michael's and Kroger instead. I wish people would let their lives and actions be their sermons -- then maybe I'd be more inclined to believe them.

Re: “Lies & Others

And how convenient for the deluded masses that they now have a whole network that seems to be conveniently dedicated to the dissemination of a veritable smorgasbord of poisonous tidbits disguised as real food. It saves them from having to make any effort to become as sated as possible by the extensive menu of lies, prevarications, equivocations and obfuscations du jour as served up by the Koch/Murdoch chef jesters.
