  1. But…but…the cool toys that come from the military surplus.

    This is when the police can be the big ol’ badass dudes………you know, like what we see in the movies and television shows?

    Let’s not forget – the hit show 24 was on when GWB and Gang was in office.

    I sometimes wonder if GWB and Gang truly believed that 24 was real?

  2. I can’t deal with militarized police this early in the morning! I’m actually very worried about this topic and trying to find ways to be calm.

    So, this is pure fun —

    I haven’t figured out if there is a way to stop it, slow it, pause it… If any of you do, let me know. Meanwhile I’ll wait a few seconds for it to start over and watch closely. đŸ™‚

    • Every American should be worried about the militarization of our police.

      I hear that is the way Hitler had a lot of help coming to power AND keeping that power.

  3. Then, there’s this which requires a bit more thinking (NOT MUCH!) but is interesting!

    Which of the 11 American nations do you live in?

  4. More tragedy out of Texas.

    (from the link): Four workers were killed and one was injured Saturday during a hazardous chemical leak at a suburban Houston industrial plant, DuPont officials said.

    The chemical, methyl mercaptan, began leaking around 4 a.m. in a unit at the DuPont plant in La Porte, about 20 miles east of Houston. Plant officials said the release was contained by 6 a.m.

    Methyl mercaptan was used at the plant to create crop-protection products such as insecticides and fungicides, according to DuPont. The cause of the leak was not immediately known.

    Five employees were in the unit at the time of the incident and were exposed to the chemical, the company said. Four died at the plant, and one was hospitalized.
