Police Caught on Video Beating a Woman

The video below is unremarkable.  Two cops beat up some woman.  It’s not like it’s never happened before.  If you’re inclined, you can probably find hundreds of videos on YouTube of police caught beating seemingly innocent people.  

But this video is different because I saw it posted on Yahoo.com when I opened my email account this morning.

YouTube publishes everything.  When it comes to police abuse videos, YouTube posts lots of them.  But in doing so, YouTube seems to be so much of an “alternative” media outlet, that we’re not surprised or impressed by police abuse videos.  YouTube has volume, but it doesn’t have “weight”.

But Yahoo, on the other hand, strikes me as more “mainstream” than YouTube.  Yahoo has more credibility, more “weight” with the average American.

So, when I see a police abuse video posted on Yahoo (right next to a video about whatever Mariah Carey wore at a recent concert), I’m impressed.  The Yahoo posting tells me that police abuse is no longer a fringe issue, but has instead become as “mainstream” as Mariah Carey’s costumes.  If so, we can expect to see police abuse as an increasingly important issue in the mainstream media as well as in the A.D. 2014 election.

The rising tide against police abuse reminds me of President Obama’s recent announcement that the war on terror must wind down and even his use of drones to assassinate “terrorists” would also be diminished.  It’s too early to say for sure, but it appears that the “imperial” federal government and the heretofore growing “police state” know that they’ve gone too far, become so overtly tyrannical that they’ve alienated too many Americans.  Perhaps Obama, the government and the cops realize they’re going to have to rehabilitate their images by “playing nice” for a while.

If so, that’s evidence that we’re winning.  Our dissidents’ numbers are growing too large to be ignored.

Testing Drones for Ability to Detect People Carrying Guns

As one of the pro-drone spokesmen in the following video explains, he and his fellow researchers would never help create a technology that would reduce Americans’ rights.

But I don’t think that’s true.  I think he means that he and his fellow researchers would never help create a technology that would reduce Americans’ right for free.  

However, if the money was right, they’d create anything–no matter how much harm their creations might ultimately cause their nation.  

Patriotism is popular so long as it doesn’t actually cost anything.  We love our country.  We even weep when we hear the National Anthem.  But most Americans have far more loyalty to their bank accounts than they do to The United States of America.   So, when we have a chance to choose between taking more money for ourselves or playing the role of “patriot,” most Americans will take the money every time.  

It’s a shame.  But I expect it’s always been that way and not only within The United States of America.  Around the world, people have more loyalty to their money than they do to their nation.  That’s probably why Mayer Amschel Rothschild reportedly observed, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”  

If, despite all of the patriotic crapola,  money is what most people really worship, then control of the nation’s money supply gives one control over most of that nation’s people.
