G20 Summit Protests

Sonic Cannons At The G20

The Daly Show with Jon Stewart just reported that authorities are using sonic cannons to keep the anarchist in line at the G-20 Summit. You know what kind of music anarchist listen to?

Bill Clinton Says There Is No Racism

Former President Bill Clinton says that there is no racism in the opposition against President Barack Obama. He says the opposition against healthcare now is no different than the opposition against healthcare when Mr. Clinton tried. Funny, in the eight years Mr. Clinton was President, nobody yelled he was a liar during an address of the full Congress. It only took eight months for it to happen to Mr. Obama.

The headlines said that the new healthcare reform bill recently released is industry’s favorite so far. That’s probably because of all the compromising efforts to make sure it really doesn’t do much to reform healthcare.

Cosby In Detroit

72-year-old actor, comedian and activist Bill Cosby loaned the Detroit school district his celebrity as the city tries to hold off plummeting enrollment. I wonder if anyone thought about working to assure that the students had jobs to look forward to so they can put their education to work.
