In the video you can see an 18 year veteran public defender try to protect her clients rights. The police officer in charge had already been under investigation for violating the rights of black men. The man they are trying to question has a right to his attorney, so to get around that they try to get the attorney to leave. When she wont let them illegally ask questions of her client they arrest her, for resisting arrest. The video clearly shows she never at any point resisted arrest and continue to tell the police officers that she was the attorney representing the black man. SO they dragged her away and continued to violate the constitutional rights of the young black man by questioning him after he was denied his attorney, by them. This is both serious and sad. It is almost like a coup is taking place in the USA where police think they have no authority but themselves. Scary. Hugs
history is written by the winners, and often changed to make them look like saints. The always leave out the horrible gory detail of their crimes. Hugs
I read this three times. It is one thing to dislike gay people. That is a bigoted response to people who are different than you. It is not right, should not be accepted, but I can at least have an idea where it comes from. However the things this lady comes up with, the stuff she claims is included with homosexuality simply stuns me. She has really demonized a bunch of people she knows nothing about. I know this because she uses the code words ” LGBT lifestyle”. Right there she removes the humanity, the person, and it suddenly becomes a life style, like RVing and camping or hiking, or sports. It is just something to do. Then she goes on to say people like that are predators who can not stop, wont stop , and want to harm all others. She paints a picture of all gay people lurking in bathrooms just to show themselves to “innocent people” and she leads people to believe gay people have a compulsion to have constant sex against their partners will, we will rape anyone anywhere. Well part of that is the silly idea from straight people that they are all so irresistible no one could resist them, they are so hot and beautiful that everyone wants to have sex with them. YUCK. Then she goes on a laundry list of things she think a law simply protecting gay people from discrimination will include and lead to , as if they were the same thing, which any thinking person knows they are not. Ok I have seen this type of hate before and as they all do she professes the idea she really loves gay people all the while making up the most vile things she can about them. What I want to know, what I can not understand, is where do these people get these weird and warped ideas about gay people. How can a thinking person be lead to deny the evidence of their own eyes, science study and reports, their own dealings with gay people, to believe these things. I can not understand where these ideas about gay people come from, much less how they believe them. To me it is about the same as saying dogs can fly and they invade your brain at night and rape you in the shower. That all dogs can not resist stealing your car and doing drive by pooping on places. I am simply stunned at the level of hate, stupidity and out right wrongness of her and people like her. Hugs

I did not know of this and now that I do I see such harm in it. Please find out about it and try to tank it. It is again a way the ultra wealthy and corporations to take over all our lives, all government. It is again a way that corporations mean more than people. I read a story a long time ago about this kind of thing, it was called CATS EYES and at the time I thought it pure fiction, no wit has come true. Sorry but this is sad for human people. Hugs
“American Sniper” lionizes the most despicable aspects of U.S. society—the gun culture, the blind adoration of the military, the belief that we have an innate right as a “Christian” nation to exterminate the “lesser breeds” of the earth, a grotesque hypermasculinity that banishes compassion and pity, a denial of inconvenient facts and historical truth, and a belittling of critical thinking and artistic expression. Many Americans, especially white Americans trapped in a stagnant economy and a dysfunctional political system, yearn for the supposed moral renewal and rigid, militarized control the movie venerates. These passions, if realized, will extinguish what is left of our now-anemic open society.
