Apparently, our discussion of the police, uh, "interaction" (thuggery) with the youth of Baltimore has gathered the attention of another blog. It can be found here.
It appears that we have been assigned the rank of "Idiot Blog". LOL. Mr. Quick apparently has a taste for ad hominem circumstantiae.
Despite his less than flattering review of our blog, please stop by his site and send him some traffic--despite the fact that he uses the term Bourgeois in his blog (we low-brow blog readers may have to Google that) he actually seems to agree with much of what we say.
Dear Mr. G(redacted),
Thank you for contacting me about Congressman Pete Stark's comments regarding the president. I appreciate hearing from you.
On October 18, 2007, Congressman Pete Stark of California made the following statement on the House floor, "You don't have money to fund the war or children. But you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President's amusement."
In response to this event, Congressman Boehner of Ohio introduced a resolution (H.Res. 767) that would censure Congressman Stark for his statement. I voted in favor of this resolution because I believe that Members of Congress must conduct themselves collegially, respectfully, and in a manner befitting our great institutions.Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. If I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other matter, please feel free to be in touch. Sincerely,
Member of Congress

This YouTube and other media sources has the potential of going viral.If this kid had any sort of discipline in his upbringing he would have shown respect and kept his mouth shut. If he had, he would still have his damn skateboard! The kid does deserve a boot up the ass. I count a minimum of four kids at the scene, including whoever shot the video. None of the others had a problem, showed respect for the officer, and kept their skateboards. Office Riverieri will probably have a lot of grief and the kid benefits from his stupid mindset. Riverieni deserves a promotion as acting as a surrogate parent for an undeserving child! I am wondering what this kid's lifestyle will be like in ten years after two marriages, working part-time at Dollar Tree and Goodwill stores, and trying to support three kids that he may, or may not, see on every other weekend. If children cannot understand respect for the law then anarchy by undisciplined idiots is the only result. I vote for more boots up the a**! The vast majority of the comments on this YouTube video obviously disagree with my opinion. But, IMO, they were raised by hippies and the chromosomal damage from their parents consumption of THC and LSD has wracked havoc on the simple concept of societal norms. Frank J at IMAO still has the best solution for hippies, "punch them in the face.," Tday they term "hippie" is not acceptable. The nomenclature (pc stuff) is liberal; I support the concept of a call to the parents, and a boot up the a** as well! Their parents need the same boot, probably much larger, as well!
