      I still remember the first time I heard Alison Krauss sing. I was painting the bathroom in the house I’d rented after my divorce, and was listening to Sunnyside with David Dye. I was just floored. Here she is with Union Station: http://youtu.be/72WInmV72rs

Why fundamentalism of any kind is dangerous

I’m sure I’ve posted this before but the video below bears repeating:

All that talk about respecting the law is just balderdash if they think they have to defy it in order to answer to a higher authority. That’s why at least one police officer in Colorado Springs is dead tonight.

They don’t care about anything but their own salvation. They might not decapitate but their victims are just as dead. And they have a lot of guns.

Better not rile them up, eh, Marco? What do you say, Ben? Ted?

      • And admit that their own kind (the Corporate Media) had done the conditioning, or at least allowed it. 👿
