Now, I’m all about some free markets, and thats certainly not what we have here, but lets just clear up the fact that my sentiments on government will line up very little with the apparent majority at those protests.

Nice, flex ties, shot-guns, and riot gear.

Nice, flex ties, shot-guns, and riot gear.

That being said, here is the link to 5 videos of police attacking demonstrators with rubber bullets, batons, tear gas, and pepper-spray. As a human being you possess the right to assemble, you have the right to move freely in a public space (God-willing,  public spaces will disappear at some point), and you ABSOLUTELY have the right to protest self-proclaimed rulers. Pittsburgh police reported less than 50,000 dollars in property damage (link), I’d venture to say that much property damage probably occurs any given day in any major city.

The fact is, police barred entry to portions of the city so that a collection of rulers could get together and tell people how to live their lives and spend their money. There is NO justification for any of this.

Whats more disturbing is the apparent left v right trend in opinion on this subject, with many comments on the story being absolutely insane, such as this one.

ConanTheRepublican:

CHOKE–ya left-wing filth! The first Civil War in America was between North and South. The next will be Left vs. Right, and I look forward to gettin’ in the streets with you trash, and caving yer godd*mn skulls in!

Not bothering to get into the ignorance of the fact that america NEVER had a civil war (definition here), is this really what these people are coming to? What major differences are there exactly, between “left” and “right”?

The Motorhome Diaries crew concocted this sweet compilation of photos from there adventures thus far, with a surprisingly entertaining song playing in the background. Only negative thing I can say of this video? The apple logo they snuck in! Darn macs!

Israeli scientists have shown that they can artificially manufacture DNA Evidence without even physically possessing a sample of someone’s DNA.  But hey, it’s not like the Government would ever manufacture evidence against someone anyways, right? ……Right?

We’ll toss this “Smoking gun” proof of guilt out along with that classic untestable, unproven hypothesis that is fingerprinting.

What the heck am I blithering about? Well, I’m going to be a host with Rick Caldwell on the new internet radio show, Infrequently Asked Questions. Things are still in the planning phase, but if everything turns out half as well as we hope, then it’s going to be amazing!

Ricks blog post about it is HERE.

Just for a bit of background info, Rick is a fan of linux, EEE computers, and liberty. The show itself will focus mostly on liberty, but also on whatever happens to fly into rick and I’s brains, which for me may be a lot about comic book movies and guns. We plan on having a lot of guests on the show, hopefully as co-hosts for that particular show.
