NYC to pay $2 million to arrested war protesters

so, like, i guess we pay taxes so that half the money can be spent paying dickhead cops to beat us up for doing nothing wrong, and then the other half pays the city's lawyers to verify nothing?

If you're not a fucking pig, you must be a terrorist:

The bulwark against tyranny is dissent. Open opposition, the right to challenge those in power, is a mainstay of any healthy democracy. The Democratic and Republican conventions will test the commitment of the two dominant U.S. political parties to the cherished tradition of dissent. Things are not looking good.

Denver's CBS4 News just reported that the city is planning on jailing arrested Democratic convention protesters at a warehouse with barbed-wire-topped cages and signs warning of the threat of stun gun use. Meanwhile, a federal judge has ruled that a designated protest area is legal, despite claims that protesters will be too far from the Democratic delegates to be heard.

...For now, the eyes of the world are on the Beijing Olympics. Sportswriter Dave Zirin is reporting on the suppression of protests that are occurring there. He has an interesting perspective, as he is a member of the anti-death-penalty group infiltrated in Maryland. He told me, "Our taxpayer dollars went to pay people to infiltrate and take notes on our meetings, and it's absolutely enraging ... a lot of this Homeland Security funding is an absolute sham ... it's being used to actually crush dissent, not to keep us safer in any real way." The lack of freedom of speech in China is getting a little attention in the news. But what about the crackdown on dissent here at home? Dissent is essential to the functioning of a democratic society. There is no more important time than now.

I guess optimism is your only choice when the only alternative is torture.

"Well, it's better than getting my eye jabbed with a taser."

"Yup, and it's much much better than getting shit shoved up my fucking asshole by supposed "men." And why IS the American military refusing homosexuals while forcing the rest to play with men's assholes?

Two-thirds of U.S. corporations paid no federal income taxes between 1998 and 2005, according to a new report from Congress.
In a bill passed overwhelmingly by a Democratic led Congress, and welcomed immensely by criminal thugs who have taken control of the United States government, anyone who is deemed to be smarter than whoever is currently called "The President" may be considered a terrorist. And then tortured to death. I am beginning to doubt evolution myself.

From the "man" who brought you the Iraq War...

“The United States believes the people of China deserve the fundamental liberty that is the natural right of all human beings,” says the draft of the speech, which mentions neither the Olympics nor specific abuses that have drawn new international criticism of the Chinese government. “So America stands in firm opposition to Chinas detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates, and religious activists.”

...quote provided by the "newspaper" that brought you the Iraq War.

Yes, you, Iraq. You.
