I’m not sure how much I love it when this plan comes together.

[A]ccording to [a] Fairleigh Dickinson University’s latest PublicMind poll…“there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all”

FoxNews worse than ignorance, it’s not just opinion, it’s science!

But there is more than just that.

“I don’t think we have the right to Monday-morning quarterback the police,” Bill O’Reilly said tonight, discussing the appalling use of pepper spray by UC Davis police on Friday.

…Megyn Kelly [told] O’Reilly, that pepper spray is “a food product, essentially”

Yeah, that’s right, we have no right to question the actions of authorities, not questioning authorities is what makes slogans like “freedom” and “liberty” worth believing.  To question the police is to embrace the socialist notion you shouldn’t be pepper-sprayed by them repeatedly, based upon your political orientation.

Besides, pepper-spraying isn’t really about the abuse of civil protesters — particularly the non-FoxNews viewing ones.

It is about seasoning.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
