It’s become such a frequent occurrence, it only rates a brief mention in the local press, but it is a national outrage. What does it say about us as a society that there is no outcry when people die or are made to suffer incredible pain from tasers, our new weapon of social control?

It’s not only old women who are living too long and expecting too much from the federal government in their Social Security check every month. According to Obama’s Catfood Commission Chair Alan Simpson, veterans who expect their country to stand by them after poisoning them in-country during The American Troubles in Indochine are “not helping us to save the country in this fiscal mess.”
