Brian Kotowski 2 years, 3 months ago on Becky Plummer: Join me in picketing Jane Fonda's new movie

One wonders if all those whining about a washed up actress in some stupid movie drive, or have ever driven, a Ford. Ford was a virulent anti-Semite who was greatly admired by Hilter. Hitler sang Ford's praises in Mein Kampf and often copied directly from Ford's newspaper The Dearborn Independent, wherein Ford instructed his editors to chronicle “the Jewish Menace.” In the early 20's, Ford published The International Jew: The World's Problem. At Nuremberg, the Hitler Youth honcho testified how enormously influential The International Jew was for the nascent Nazi party; well thumbed copies were found in Hitler's office & a portrait of Ford hung on Hitler's wall in the same room.

“I wish I could send some of my shock troops to Chicago and other big American cities to help in the elections. We look on Heinrich Ford as the leader of the growing fascist movement in America. We admire particularly his anti-Jewish policy which is the Bavarian fascist platform.” [Ford was considering a Presidential run at the time] ~ Adolf Hitler, 3/8/1923

It is not at all difficult to argue that Ford is one of the founding fathers of 20th century radial anti-Semitism, which led to the death camps and the slaughter of millions.

Henry Ford: better or worse than Jane Fonda?

Yikes. Absent a medical issue like a seizure or something, looks like Mr. Bomar will have some 'splainin' to do. Glad no one was hurt.

It's just noise until changes are made to federal law. As long as it remains illegal at the federal level, state authorization is meaningless. From my old stomping grounds today: Feds raid medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington state — where possession is legal.

As the lawyer FOR ONE OF THE DISPENSARIES concedes in the television report: "MJ is illegal 24 hours a day 7 days a week under federal law, there is no defense, there is no justification."

Should be fun to watch, though.

There's a reason they're called "accidents." Mistakes happen. So do carelessness & stupidity. Cops can't be everywhere all the time, and are obliged to do a great deal with very limited resources.


Brian Kotowski 2 years, 4 months ago on Lance Scranton: A lesson from the trial of George Zimmerman

They BOTH got in over their heads, and needlessly so. Neither one of them was doing anything wrong.

Zimmerman should never have left his vehicle. The police arrived about 60 seconds after he fired the shot. Had he let the cops handle it, the kid would be alive & GZ wouldn't have a target on his back. But he decided to be a hero, and both he & Martin instinctively assumed the worst about each other. One is dead, and the other will probably need to wear a bullet proof vest for the next decade.

The jury ruled correctly. And Zimmerman is an idiot, regardless.
