Roger Goodell Is Overpaid and Roddy White Isn’t Happy

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Roger GoodellEver wonder how much the Commissioner of the National Football League makes? If you have, you probably shouldn’t because the amount is high enough to make you wanna puke. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the current NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, makes a lot of money, but it was recently reported by Football Talk that Goodell, by the year 2019, will be making a staggering $20 million a year.

If flames are currently shooting out of your nostrils, smoke is coming from your ears and you have officially blown your lid, don’t worry because you aren’t the only one. Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons Roddy White also isn’t too pleased with the salary of Goodell and has taken to Twitter to express his discontent.

White’s tweets basically came together saying, “How in the hell can you pay a man this much money, that can’t run or tackle or catch? Roger Goodell is getting over, never seen anything like it, 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help. I guess the NFL is banking. The NFL is not a company, it’s a nonprofit organization that makes a lot of profit.”

Granted, we do live in a Capitalist society where, if you can achieve it, you can make as much money as possible, even if that amount is enough to feed a third-world country for the next 20 years. In addition, it isn’t like White is underpaid, as the wide receiver just signed a 6-year contract with the Falcons worth $48 million.

I think what it boils down to is that everybody in the NFL (and all of sports for that matter), whether they be suit-wearing businessmen or helmet-wearing players, is overpaid. I mean let’s be honest, how does the NFL really benefit society? I’m not saying we should get rid of it or anything, I’m just saying maybe we need to reevaluate how much we pay people to play a game for 5 to 6 years.

Despicable Green Room Demands from Nicki Minaj

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is NOT someone I would refer to as an artist or a performer. I stretch both those words when I talk about Lady Gaga simply for the fact that I would fear for my life if I didn’t. Minaj, however, doesn’t deserve either. I personally believe she is trying to cash in on the eccentricity that has been made famous by Gaga and is nothing more than a poser.

That being said, I recently discovered what the so-called “artist” demands for her green room before every show. First off, Minaj demands 12 bottles of Martinelli’s Apple Juice and also requires that six of the bottles be room temperature and the other six be iced.

It has also been reported that Minaj’s favorite piece of fried chicken (insert stereotypical joke here) is the wing. That being the case, Minaj demands that there be “lots of wings” in her THREE 12-piece buckets of spicy fried chicken. Yeah, that’s right, Minaj demands three buckets of chicken which, for those of you keeping score at home, equals 36 pieces of chicken. People around the world are starving and this psycho is asking for 36 pieces of chicken.

As if that wasn’t enough, this ADHD “performer” also demands dried cranberries, raw almonds and 24 bottles of Dasani Water, 12 room temperature and 12 iced. Her breakfast demands are just as extravagant, consisting of egg whites scrambled hard (whatever that means), turkey bacon fried hard (again with the hard?), white toast with grape or strawberry jelly and Belgian waffles with syrup, powdered sugar, whipped cream, butter and strawberries.

But wait, there’s more! Ms. Psycho-diva also demands Snapple, Red Bull, assorted fruit juices, Simply Lemonade, a fruit platter, cheese platter, deli tray, 3 packs of gum, salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, green olives, Wishbone Light Italian dressing, Bumble Bee tuna and wheat or low fat crackers.

That’s it as far as food is concerned but Minaj also requests a few other things you can’t eat. Aside from the amount of food that could feed a family of four for a week, Minaj also demands two dozen pink or white roses, candles that smell like baked goods, Halls Mentho-Lyptus Honey Lemon Throat Cough Drops, contact lens solution with case, two space heaters and a cool mist humidifier.

To be honest, this makes me sick. There are so many people out there that are starving and struggling to get by and this disgrace of a human being is demanding 36 pieces of chicken, fruit platters, cheese platters, deli trays and all that other crap which, I am imagining, she only eats 10% of. People like this need to be dragged into an alley and beaten until they see the error of their ways and then beaten some more. And furthermore, Minaj doesn’t even have the fame to be demanding anything like this. She should be happy people actually show up for her concerts.

Major Websites Blackout in Protest of SOPA and PIPA

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Stop SOPA

SOPA…it’s a term that will be infamous amongst internet users forever. SOPA, otherwise known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, is a new government bill that some are trying desperately to get passed by Congress, to the great disdain of internet users around the world. On the surface the bill might sound like a good thing, trying to stop piracy and illegal activity on the internet. But dig deeper and you will find that SOPA is just another extreme form of internet censorship.

There is a whole lot to the bill itself, but in a nutshell, the bill would allow the government to shut down and deny access to any website that is deemed to have illegal material on it. This, naturally, has made a lot of website creators, developers and owners very upset, especially sites like Reddit and Wikipedia.

This bill has a lot of potential for bad. For example, Reddit finds it impossible to monitor every single thing users post on the site, which makes posting things of an illegal nature simple since there is no one to monitor it. If SOPA is enacted, and that illegal material was discovered, then the government could essentially shut down Reddit completely and deny access to everybody, even if the site and its operators had absolutely nothing to do with the material posted.

As a result of SOPA, as well as PIPA (Protect IP Act), a lot of major websites have staged an internet protest in the form of a blackout. Major websites, like Reddit, Google and WordPress have participated in the event. Google blacked out its logo and added the message “Tell Congress: Please don’t censor the Web!” The message was also linked to an online petition opposing SOPA in the U.S. House of Representatives and PIPA in the Senate.

The blackout is scheduled to last from 8:00 a.m. this morning until 8:00 p.m. (for most sites) this evening with additional sites expected to register. Ben Huh, CEO of Cheezburger, which operates multiple humor websites, stated in a recent Tweet that his company’s sites would blackout as well.

Wikipedia posted on its site saying, “Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge”, and also wrote on its English site that the SOPA legislation is something “that could fatally damage the free and open internet.” The site also added that it would be blacking out for 24 hours in order to raise awareness.

It seems as if three officials from the Obama administration issued a statement opposing both SOPA and PIPA . The officials stated that online piracy by foreign websites was a very serious problem in America that requires a serious legislative response but that SOPA and PIPA aren’t it. The three officials also stated that they would not support legislation that “diminishes freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk or undermines the dynamic, innovative global internet.”

It will be a dark day for internet users should these laws get passed. However, if there is one thing I have learned from blogging, it’s that internet users are many, they are powerful and you do NOT want to screw with their internet…

$3,000 Birthday Cake for LeBron James Gets Rejected

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

LeBron James birthday cakeWhen a person becomes famous, for whatever reason, often they are usually showered with lots of free stuff. Whether it be clothes, technology, gift bags or, in some absurd cases, cars, celebrities (the ones with more money than all of us) are for some reason just given things. Take LeBron James for instance. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star and current Miami Heat player was offered a free birthday cake for his 27th that was estimated to be worth $3,000. The best part is, though, that the “King” rejected the cake, opting for something else instead.

However, the fact that the cake wasn’t used was very disappointing, and upsetting to the person who baked the 5-level extravaganza, local Miami baker Alethea Hickman. Hickman wasn’t offered any money for the giant cake but was instead promised a ton of free publicity for designing and baking the cake that was to be presented to James on his 27th birthday at a local Miami nightspot. Hickman was promised a “sponsorship”, no physical money, according to Jared Galbut, the man who handled James’ party.

However, things didn’t go so well when the cake wasn’t used. According to Hickman, “I don’t even know where my cake went. I was mortified. They had me do it in the middle of the holiday crush and I hired additional people. Someone needs to pay.”

Galbut stated that James’ people decided that the cake wasn’t fit for the Miami star. “It just wasn’t what was expected. When LeBron’s people saw it, they just didn’t want to use it and decided to bring their own cake. I can’t tell LeBron James what birthday cake to eat. It’s LeBron James, for Christ’s sake.” Galbut was also asked how much he would be willing to pay for the cake if asked. “That cake couldn’t be more than $600. It’s flour, eggs and water.”

It’s actually a little more than just flour, eggs and water. Also included in the value of the cake are the workers it took (the extra ones hired on for the job), their wages, delivery costs, lost revenue from other potential clients and also all the decorative ingredients and other ingredients aside from eggs, flour and water.

Regardless, it probably wasn’t the best idea for Hickman to offer the cake free of charge and in exchange for free publicity. The amount of revenue generated by the publicity probably wouldn’t equal the amount of resources that went in to making the cake in the first place. It hasn’t even been determined if LeBron himself saw the cake. Who knows, he may have loved it!

The lesson here? Don’t give away free things if they would normally cost you a lot of money and there is NEVER a need for a $3,000 cake, ever.

“Maggie Eats Healthier”: Second Opinions on “Maggie Goes on a Diet”

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

 

Maggie Eats Healthier

Not too long ago I wrote an article on a recently released children’s book called “Maggie Goes on a Diet“. I criticized the book for sending the wrong message to young, impressionable girls and claimed that the book promoted the idea that in order to be successful, happy and popular you had to be skinny. Regrettably, I said all these things without ever reading the book. I was influenced by the large amount of media attention and negative press the book was harboring and, unfortunately, I jumped on the bandwagon without looking at the book from a neutral standpoint.

Well, my “burn him at the stake” attitude about both the author and the book caught up with me as Paul M. Kramer, the author of the book, contacted me. Naturally Mr. Kramer was displeased with my interpretation of his book and felt like I unjustly “judged the book by its cover”, which I can confirm that I did. Mr. Kramer sent me a copy of the book to read personally so that I could do what I should have done in the first place, read it, and give my personal opinion about it instead of following the crowd. And that’s exactly what I did.

I should start off by saying that the version of the book I received was slightly modified from the original. The book I received was titled “Maggie Eats Healthier”. Aside from dropping the word “diet” from the title altogether, the book also changed one line of the book from “The very next morning Maggie’s diet had begun” to “The very next morning Maggie’s lifestyle change had begun”. To many, as well as myself, dropping the word diet from the book seemed to make a huge difference in my perception.

The book was no longer about putting a young girl on a diet and instead was about a young girl, unhappy with herself and how others treated her, who wanted to do something about it. In general, the story centers around 14 year-old Maggie who is overweight, has low self-esteem and is constantly bullied by her peers for being fat. In response to all of this, Maggie decides to start exercising, eating healthier and generally trying to better her own, personal lifestyle.

After reading the book myself, I agree that I was initially too harsh on the content. I honestly do believe, however, that the word “diet” has such a negative undertone to it that using it in a children’s book seems a little wrong. However, Mr. Kramer’s revision to “eating healthier” is a far better way to get his message across and, in my opinion, a much easier pill for the public to swallow. Healthy eating habits should be learned at a young age and diets, I feel, are a very adult thing.

Getting into the content of the book, I feel that it serves multiple purposes. For one, it brings to light the cruelty of children. I believe that the book can teach children that just because somebody is a little bigger than them doesn’t mean that they are any less of a person and that they too have feelings that can be just as easily hurt as their own. The book also shows just how much this bullying can influence children. As a result of the bullying, Maggie turns to food for comfort but it only numbs the pain, it doesn’t make it go away.

The book also brings to the table the issue of self-esteem. Self-esteem is very important, especially with children. Low self-esteem can have devastating effects on a child’s physical and mental health, as well as their performance in school. When Maggie begins to eat healthier, her self-esteem increases, she feels better about herself, she is happier and her performance in school even increases. I think that this book sends the right message to children about having confidence in themselves and being able to accomplish anything if they just put their minds to it.

I will say that I felt some of the lines in the book would be a little inappropriate for very young girls. When the book was first listed on Amazon, it was listed a book for children ages 4 to 8. Mr. Kramer personally told me that this is incorrect and I agree. I personally feel like the book is appropriate for children ages 10 to 13. Around this time children (girls especially) start maturing and this is one of the most important phases in their development.

This book can teach children many things. It can teach them that eating healthy and exercising is important and that it is extremely important to have self-esteem and self-confidence. It can also teach kids that picking on other kids and bullying them, especially because of their weight, is never okay and is not something that they should ever do.

The fact that Maggie never really goes on a diet is the main thing in this book. All she really does is cut out junk food (though she does allow herself one normal-sized treat a week), eat healthier foods and exercise. By doing so, Maggie feels better about herself and actually betters herself as well. I will say that the book does lightly imply that she becomes popular as a result of becoming fit. I would not go as far as to say that the flat out message is “you have to be skinny to be popular” but I could see some people interpreting it that way. I would suggest a page or two of the book could have been devoted to telling about the people that were mean apologizing to Maggie after she becomes healthy.

Overall, my initial judgment of the book was wrong. I think that this book could help decrease the growing threat of childhood obesity, which has tripled in the last 20 years, or at least shed some light on the issue. I do believe that the revisions to the title and the few lines in the book were necessary. The word “diet” sends the wrong message to people everywhere and can cause some pretty vicious attacks. It makes me very sad when I see a little girl who is overweight or obese, especially at such a young age. If this book can help even one girl, it will all have been worth it.

I would like to express my apologies to Mr. Kramer for my unjust criticism of his book and applaud him on writing about something that most authors probably wouldn’t ever consider writing.

Military Dumps Remains of Fallen Soldiers in Landfill

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

King George County landfillWe all know how painful it is when a friend or loved one is deployed to defend our country. Seeing someone you care about willingly go to risk their lives to ensure that you remain safe is never easy. What is even harder is when that loved one doesn’t come back. Only able to ease the pain slightly, the “no man left behind” policy of our nation’s armed forces has allowed thousands of departed soldiers to be properly honored for their ultimate sacrifice.

However, it has recently been discovered that not every fallen soldier receives the respect owed to them for laying down their life for their country. In what has come to be known, in my opinion, as the most disgusting, disrespectful and appalling thing to be done in recent memory, the Air Force has admitted to dumping the incinerated partial remains of no less than 274 American troops in a Virginia landfill, a number far less than the military previously acknowledged before halting the secretive process nearly three years ago.

What makes this practice so infuriating to me is not the location of these solders’ final resting place but the fact that the landfill dumping was concealed from families who had authorized the military to dispose of the remains in a dignified and respectful manner. In addition to that, there are currently no plans to alert those families, even now, about what happened to their loved ones.

This disgusting and dishonorable practice was uncovered by The Washington Post last month, which was able to document a single case of a soldier whose partial remains were sent to the King George County landfill in Virginia. The new data uncovered shows the actual scope of this crime for the first time, which has become an extremely embarrassing episode for the Dover Air Base, the main port of entry for our fallen heroes.

What’s more is that this practice was never formally authorized under military policies or regulations and was also not disclosed to senior Pentagon officials who conducted a high-level review of cremation policies at the Dover mortuary back in 2008.

Officials from both the Pentagon and the Air Force stated last month that the only way to determine how many remains went to the landfill would require searching through the records of over 6,300 fallen troops whose remains have passed through the mortuary since 2001.

Right now it is believed that 976 fragments from 274 military personnel were cremated, incinerated and taken to the landfill between 2004 and 2008. According to the Air Force, an additional 1,762 unidentified remains were collected from the battlefield and disposed of in a similar manner. This makes the total number of incinerated fragments dumped in the landfill in excess of 2,700.

To say that this infuriates me is an understatement. These extremely brave men and women gave their lives so that we could stay safe at night. They died protecting a country they believed in and loved and this is how we treat them? This is how we show them respect? By dumping their ashes with a bunch of garbage? Absolutely not! This cannot stand and immediate action against the Dover Air Force Base and all those knowingly involved is required.

This is not only a disgrace and a dishonor to these fallen heroes but also to their friends, family, loved ones and all of us in this country that can sleep a little safer as a result of these terrible sacrifices. My condolences go out to the families of these soldiers and I pray that their spirits can find peace.

Michele Bachmann Insulted by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Introduction Song

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Late Night with Jimmy FallonIt is no surprise that Hollywood and celebrities are pretty much entirely one-sided when it comes to politics. Nearly anything that has a media outlet will use it to bash politics (mainly Republicans and Conservatives) and that includes late night talk shows, specifically Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, which has recently found itself in some pretty hot water with politicians and Michele Bachmann.

Host of the Late Night show Jimmy Fallon apologized via Twitter to Conservative Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Tuesday after the comedian and talk show host’s house band played an offensive song as Bachmann’s entrance music for her Monday appearance.

Fallon’s house band, known as The Roots, played Fishbone’s song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” to welcome Bachmann to the show. However most people, including Bachmann herself, didn’t notice until band drummer Questlove hinted at it in a Twitter post following the show.

Fallon apologized on Tuesday via Twitter saying, “I’m honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I’m so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back. Actually it was a fun interview. She helped me with my Minnesota accent. (I still sound Irish).”

However, Fallon’s apology isn’t enough for Bachmann who accused NBC of sexism for not issuing an apology on behalf of the network. Bachmann told Fox News in an interview on Wednesday that whoever in the band chose the song should be disciplined or fired and suggested NBC has a double standard in how it treats Republican women.

Bachmann stated, “This wouldn’t be tolerated if it were Michelle Obama, and it shouldn’t be tolerated for a conservative woman,” while also calling the song choice an “outrage”. Surprisingly, Bachmann is not the only person complaining. The choice of song came under scrutiny from all sides of the political spectrum. Democratic New York Representative Nita Lowey trashed the show for the song in a statement to Politico and also called on NBC, Fallon and the band to apologize.

Lowey stated, “The choice of song to introduce Michele Bachmann on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ last night was insulting and inappropriate. I do not share Michele Bachmann’s politics, but she deserves to be treated with respect. No female politician – and no woman – should be subjected to sexist and offensive innuendo like she was last night.”

I fear that NBC, Jimmy Fallon and the band will get nothing more than a slap on the wrist or a stern talking to due to Bachmann’s political affiliation. If the tables were turned and a democrat was poked fun at, it would be a whole different story. Can’t we at least have some form of entertainment that doesn’t have to stick its political ideologies in whenever it gets the opportunity?

“Scientists” Say DNA Testing Can Help Determine Your Child’s Future Sports Success

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Atlas Sports GeneticsThink your kid has the potential to be the next LeBron James? How about the next Aaron Rodgers? Or maybe you think you may have just given birth to the next Albert Pujols or Wayne Rooney? Many people believe that their child is the next big sports superstar but few, and I mean few, are ever correct. However, a company out of Colorado claims that it can check your child’s genetic code to determine if your kid will excel at any number of sports.

Atlas Sports Genetics out of Boulder, Colorado says that it uses a child’s genetic code to determine if the best sport for the kid will be football, basketball, golf, baseball, soccer, swimming or another sport. In addition to that, the company also claims to give parents some early information on their child’s genetic predisposition for success in power or endurance sports.

At the small fee of only $160 (per child that is), parents will be able to receive a specially designed DNA kit in order to collect a DNA swab from their child. The swabs are then sent back to Atlas before eventually ending up at some lab in Australia. After a few weeks in the land down under, the results are sent back.

Retired NHL player and 2001 Colorado Avalanche Stanley Cup Winner Shjon Podein has already signed up his 5-year-old son Junior and his 8-year-old daughter Anna for the test. Podein is also famous for wearing his uniform for a full 25 hours after his team won Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals over the New Jersey Devils.

The specific gene scientists are looking for is the ACTN 3 gene, which is believed to be responsible for fast-twitch explosive muscles. If discovered by the scientists that the child under examination is lacking in the ACTN 3 gene, they will recommend them for endurance sports like long-distance running, cycling or swimming.

If your child’s genetic makeup contains a little bit of ACTN 3, then your child is in the mixed-pattern category, having both strength and endurance. This means that he or she will have a chance at succeeding at any type of sport, whether it be endurance or strength.

If your kid is overloaded with the ACTN 3 gene, then change their name to The Incredible Hulk because they are blessed with both power and strength. These little monsters are best suited for contact sports like football, wrestling, boxing, weight lifting and the like.

Even with “scientific” backing, Atlas has stated that a child still has the potential to excel in a sport that does not match their DNA profile. And with that statement comes the critics as this remark opens up a world of controversy about the whole thing being one big scam.

However, Atlas is sticking by their “work” with President of Operations at Atlas Nat Carruthers stating, “We hope they use it to highlight ways they can train differently. Or it inspires them in a different way as opposed to just locking them into a single sport.”

I honestly hope that there aren’t any people, other than Podeing (who has plenty of money to waste), that are actually buying into this crap. Saying that a certain gene predisposes your child to be successful takes away one of the key concepts of growth for an athlete, working hard to achieve your goals. If anybody thinks this is legitimate, feel free to run through the same process with me, I’ll only charge you $150.

The Source of the Worst Biker Feud in 10 Years? Starbucks…

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

StarbucksThere are a lot of places you would expect a turf war to break out between some seriously hardcore biker gangs. Places like a bar, the gangs’ respective hideouts, the middle of a desert or even a strip club all seem like likely turf war locations. One place that you wouldn’t expect to see this happen is outside of a Starbucks in California.

However unlikely the scenario may have been, a turf war between the Hell’s Angels and a rival motorcycle gang broke out at the coffee house last year leaving several men dead, wounded or missing in as many as three states and leading to fears of even more bloodshed.

Police officials have ranked this clash as the most severe in over a decade as the violence spilled into Nevada a month ago, including a brawl as well as a shooting between members of the Hell’s Angels and rival gang Vagos. Jeffery “Jethro” Pettigrew, 51, president of the San Jose, California chapter of the Hell’s Angels, was shot to death while a single Vagos member was wounded in the brawl at John Ascuaga’s Nugget Hotel and Casino in Sparks.

However, the violence didn’t stop there as another member of Vagos was wounded in a drive-by shooting the very next day at the site of a nearby motorcycle rally in town. And here I thought Starbucks was such a pleasant and peaceful place.

Tensions between the two gangs reached a breaking point in January of 2010 as members of both gangs battled it out with ball-peen hammers and other weapons outside a Santa Cruz Starbucks before scattering as police arrived on the scene.

According to Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark, “It was all about who would be allowed to hang out at the Starbucks downtown. The Vagos brazenly came in and tried to cement their presence. It was a pretty strong play on their part to establish themselves as the premiere club. Only in Santa Cruz would you have biker wars over who’s going to control pumpkin spice lattes.”

And therein lies the absurdity. Why in the name of everything you hold dear would you get into an all out brawl, costing some people their lives, over a freaking Starbucks? Are the grande double mocha frappuccino and blueberry scone really that important?

It has been stated that the Hell’s Angels are not involved in all the illegal activities, like drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, extortion, money laundering, theft and other violent crimes, like the government and law enforcement officials say they are.

San Francisco-based lawyer Karen Snell, who has represented a number of Hell’s Angels members, stated that Pettigrew and Tausan were “family guys” as members of the gang insist that the overwhelming majority of the 2,000-2,5000 nationwide members are law-abiding citizens who share a love of powerful motorcycles. Members also point out the group’s prominent role in certain charity events as proof of their being docile.

Regardless, I find it hard to believe that simply “family guys” were involved in casino brawls, shootings and turf wars at, of all places, Starbucks. So the next time you are grabbing yet another tall caramel macchiato, remember that you could be stepping onto the turf of a hardened biker gang. And if there is one thing you never want to do it’s stand between a biker and his coffee.

Flea Party Hate & Violence vs. Tea Party Singing

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

How does the media miss the Hate Speech and Violence of the Wall Street Protestors?

Ann Coulter calls the mob the “Wingless, Bloodsucking and Parasitic: Meet the Flea Party

Here’s one of the hate speak protesters Reason.tv spoke to at Occupy Wall Street in Los Angeles on October 12, 2011.

She identifies herself as Patricia McAllister and as an employee of Los Angeles Unified School District. “I think that the Zionist Jews, who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve, which is not run by the federal government… they need to be run out of this country,” she said.

Here’s some violence. Journalist and Reason contributor Michael Tracey is covering New York’s Occupy Wall Street as it’s happening. Above is footage he shot as the protesters marched through the street of Manhattan and had various stand-offs with the New York Police Department. Tracey himself reports being punched in the shoulder while filming.

In the above video, around the 1.40 mark, a white-shirted NYPD officer decks a protester in a green shirt (how the incident started is unclear). Reason.tv’s Meredith Bragg edited the video above from about 20 minutes of footage.

More Violent protesters.

Now contrast that with peaceful Tea Party Protesters.

I cannot understand how the media can be co blatantly biased by not condemning the hate and violence from the Fleas. The above video was typical of the protests that happened all across america. Tea parties picked up after themselves, there was no violent police confrontation and above all the sang together “God Bless America”. Something the Flea Party will never do!!!!

I support the Fleas First Amendment right to protest and party, but not to hate and hurt.

God Bless America and the Flea Party’s right to stink like a dead skunk in the middle of the road.
