shooting from the brain stem

Hello Thom, I'm listening on our local radio station in the afternoons (MAIN-FM). I have a thought about Darren Wilson's quote "...I felt like a five year old…" When a child is extremely angry, afraid or emotional they have less access to their thinking part of the brain and behave in the "survival" of the brain stem: Fight for your life. Yes, I believe Wilson felt like a 5 year old, he was being honest! Honest that his problem solving channels were shut down and that he did not have access to common sense as a police officer should!

WI: Walker's GOP preparing for progress on Right To Work Legislation.

And Walker is also introducing legislation to, and I quote, cut down on Fraud in Pubic Assistance Programs, like those filthy elderly swapping their winter time energy assistance check (it's like 12 degrees outside right now!) for cat food! (sarcasm)

I was wondering why I had slow internet responses, my speedtest said I was fine. Then I found this:

"By exempting speed tests from the throttling, T-Mobile is effectively preventing consumers from learning exactly how slow their throttled connections are. Under the new policy, T-Mobile customers who exceed their data caps will not be able to gauge the actual speeds available to them for the vast majority of their daily usage."

"T-Mobile responded by claiming that the carrier was only trying to help consumers by making speedtests (which don't use much data to begin with) cap exempt. But that logic is a slippery slope and a cop out."

Hi, we are the GOP.

Do you remember this? We know it was a circus but we also know that's what you like to watch and talk about. You spend countless hours in front of your television sets watching reality shows. Why you just can't get enough. And we're proud to say were a big part of that.

Martinsburg, West Virginia -- This week, the family of a West Virginia man who was killed by police is filing for an appeal in their lawsuit against the city, which was railroaded out of court last year after the incident occurred.

Michael Brown's stepfather possibly being charged with inciting a riot.

Cameras may be helpful in sorting out criminals from peaceful protesters.

(CNN) -- "Authorities are investigating whether Michael Brown's stepfather intended to incite a riot last week when he urged a crowd in Ferguson, Missouri, to "Burn this bitch down"

Inspection- How Can We Find Our Way Out of Ferguson?

A clown from Hell welcomes us to the latest town the carnival is visiting and says, "This way to the Ferguson Follies."
  It has become a circus of nightmares traveling across America, truly worthy of Bradbury's Something Wicked this Way Comes. Actually it makes Bradbury's book seem more comedy, in comparison.

Washington using Ferguson as a weapon of mass distraction to make progress on TPP

It was Rob Emmanuel ("mayor of the 1%) who said "never let a tragedy go to waste" and it looks like we are seeing that as Washington has taken the opportunity of Micheal's murder to quiety beef up the Internet Censorship provisions of the Trans Pacific Partnership as well as make a run at a vote to Fast Track the job and environment killing legislation.

Family Affordability Glitch: Low income families not available to afford ObamaCare even with subsidies.

Obamacare is NOT Universal Health coverage. AFA’s “affordability” is based on a hypothetical outlay for single bread winner – no kids, no spouse. The subsidy a person gets is only going to help them insure themselves, no assistance to cover the cost of insuring your spouse or kids.

PETITION: INTERNET CENSORSHIP of Obama’s TPP have gotten even worse and Fast Track is picking up momentum.

"Never let a tragedy go to waste" said Rob Emmanual and Washington is using the tragedy of Ferguson as a weapon of mass distraction to make progress on the job killing Trans Pacific Partnership.

This from Fight for the Future.

Federal Reserve caught giving Wall St top secret report laying out upcoming monetary policy moves by US.

Knowing this information, like the information obtained through Obama’s pumped up surveillance tools, can make a trader billions!

Put it another way, Gov't giving this information to traders is like gov't giving, say, a life-time supply of free plumbing supplies and free labor to a plumber. But the working class is apparently not worthy of such govt assistance.

Excessive gun shots

In the Ferguson affair, if the suspects head was down, that should indicate that there was a good chance of no resistance to arrest and no need for executing more deadly force.

Proper training would remedy this.

Common Courtesy would have prevented any incident.

Corruption gives an unfair advantage to wealth

Lobbyists and citizens united gives an unfair advantage to those who are already fortunate.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
