How about this? POLICE CHANGE SIDES!



How about this!
From Occupy Frankfurt. May 19, 2012.
The German police took off their helmets and marched with the protesters- clearing the way for them.

The police coming over to serve and protect the people... Blockupy Frankfurt. Police are escorting. Reports of an estimated 20,000+ protesters. Nice to see their faces.... and their humanity coming through...

WATCH THIS VIDEO: #blockupy. Frankfurt


German police officers escort an anti-capitalism protest march with some 20,000 people in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, May 19, 2012. Protesters peacefully filled the city center of continental Europe's biggest financial hub in their protest against the dominance of banks and what they perceive to be untamed capitalism, Frankfurt police spokesman Ruediger Regis said. The protest group calling itself Blockupy has called for blocking the access to the European Central Bank, which is located in Frankfurt's business district. (AP Photo/Michael Probst)

Nice to see the police give protesters a hand. I think I will plan on my next vacation to visit Germany. Such friendly people there!

TURNED AWAY!

This needs to be shared everywhere- on facebook, on blogs, everywhere.

What happens when republicans deny people their right to vote.

OBAMA WINS IN A LANDSLIDE!

Yesterday, I was honored to participate with my fellow Michigan democrats in our Caucus process.

For the first time in my life (I'm 51), I was able to cast a Caucus vote for my President. In our tiny group, 25 people cast votes. And I am proud to report that our caucus was 100% in favor of re-electing our Commander in Chief.

Today the paper is reporting that similar things happened in many other groups across our state, and President Obama won in a landslide.

Now...on to November.

Tens of thousands of Czechs protest budget cuts

Source: Business Week

Tens of thousands of people rallied in the Czech capital on Saturday to protest government reforms and austerity cuts in one of the biggest anti-government demonstrations here since the collapse of communism almost 23 years ago.

The protesters from all over the country urged the government to abandon the cuts and resign. They also are demanding early parliamentary elections.

Blowing vuvuzelas and beating drums, the protesters marched to Prague's Wenceslas Square, disrupting downtown traffic.

"The government must go," said Jaroslav Zavadil, head of the country's major umbrella organization of unions, the Czech-Moravian Confederation of Trade Unions.

Tens of thousands protesting against the right-leaning government austerity cuts.

This kind of real protest inspires workers around the world. Just say NO to right-wing budget cuts that harm people. Glad to see young Czechs standing up!



Mitt considering Santorum for possible running mate

High School kids should not be playing with guns.

Republicans block electric car charger on Captial Hill

You want to see how f*%$'d up things are in Washington D.C.?

Michigan Senator Carl Levin owns a Chev Volt. But there are no plug-in car chargers in the Congressional parking lot.

So Senator Levin introduced a bill in the Senate, to tell the parking lot people that it is OK to install an electric car Volt charger.

No cost involved, mind you, not a taxpayer dime is at risk. The bill simply said it would be ok to designate several parking spots inside the Senate parking lot, to have someone install an electric car charger. Designated electric car area. Only that it's o.k. to do that.

Guess what?

A REPUBLICAN BLOCKED THE BILL.

http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/30/sen-levin-tries-to-legislate-a-parking-place/

This is what is wrong with America people- REPUBLICANS BLOCKING CRAP SIMPLY BECAUSE IT'S SPONSORED BY A DEMOCRAT- EVEN IF IT IS EXCELLENT POLICY, HELPS PEOPLE, AND DEMONSTRATES GOOD
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP.



Petty, petty guys, aren't these horse & buggy republicans?

I wonder how we ever managed to get from the days of horses...to the days of cars. It's like they continue to intentionally try and take us back into the 19th century....

TEXAS FIREBOMBING: Suspect in Davis attack was once a teacher who "mentally snapped"

Suspect in TEXAS Senator Davis(D) attack was once a teacher who "mentally snapped"

By Deanna Boyd

dboyd@star-telegram.com

The homeless man accused of tossing a bag of Molotov cocktails at state Sen. Wendy Davis' office door is a college graduate and one-time middle school teacher who "snapped" some 15 years ago, his older brother said Wednesday.

"All the way through college, we used to be like best friends," said Curtis Steele III of his brother Cedric, 40, who was in custody Wednesday facing a charge of arson of a building.

"Then he just mentally snapped and just wasn't mentally there. ... Unfortunately it's gotten worse. His whole reality is different."

Davis was not at the Fort Worth office during the attack Tuesday afternoon, and no one was injured.

Curtis Steele, 42, of Grand Blanc, Mich., said his brother believes that he develops weapons for the Pentagon, writes children's books and is, at times, a preacher.
