Over the last few days, I've seen several police officers driving their cruisers while talking on their cell phones. One can't help but wonder what makes this activity so dangerous when enacted by a mere mortal, but not when committed by a member of the elite ruling class (the state). To be true, driving while impaired or distracted IS dangerous. I wonder if any of the king's men would be held personally responsible if their distracted driving caused harm or even death to a member of the serfdom, or if they would have qualified immunity.

Here is a great speech by a "true" hero. Forget the propaganda heard in the media about how "heroic" the troops are by "protecting our freedom" in the countless wars of aggression across the globe. A "true" hero knows when to abandon the lies that have been propagated, seek and find the truth, and then speak the truth in the face of adversity.
And for those keeping score, Obama is just as much of a warmonger as Bush. Perhaps worse because he cloaks the war rhetoric with the glimmer of the possibility that he wishes to end the wars. As I've said before, today's establishment Democrats are as "pro-peace" as the establishment Republicans are "pro-small-government."
