Life and death in a Democrat's city

In Detroit a man passed away unnoticed and when he was noticed he was ignored. He was ignored by the people who were there to ensure this didn't happen to him. It happened because they forgot to look at why their city is dyeing, instead of looking at what they can scavenge from it

Convinced that it was indeed a body, this reporter made a discreet call to a police officer. "Aw, just give 911 a call," the cop said. "We'll be called eventually." A call was placed to 911. A woman answered. She was told it was a reporter calling. The operator tried to follow, but seemed confused. "Where is this building?" She promised to contact the appropriate authorities. Twenty minutes or so went by when 911 called the newsroom. This time it was a man. "Where's this building?" It was explained to him, as was the elevator shaft and the tomb of ice. "Bring a jack-hammer," this reporter suggested. "That's what we do," he said. Nearly 24 hours went by. The elevator shaft was still a gaping wound. There was no crime scene tape. The homeless continued to burn their fires. City schoolchildren still do not have the necessary books to learn. The train station continues to crumble. Too many homicides still go unsolved. After another two calls to 911 on Wednesday afternoon (one of which was disconnected), the Detroit Fire Department called and agreed to meet nearby. Capt. Emma McDonald was on the scene. "Every time I think I've seen it all, I see this," she said. And with that they went about the work of recovering a person who might otherwise be waiting for the warm winds of spring.

Anti-Israel protest: Week 6, Last Gasp?

Only a hand full of people showed up with the usual signs and flags, no march and no speakers. It was still the expanded Gaza Protest and had not yet reverted to the standard anti-war vigil that is usually there. I estimated the group at about 90 hard core terror supporters and devout communist.

The photos are also pretty standard fair.

The Sun came out, that was new.

And things were going so well, but then they just had to come to me and start trouble.

remember to visit my flickr for more pictures.

I may make a short movie to show the crowd.

Update: Video ready, its short and to the point, nobody showed up.

The Cult

It is the most dangerous of cults

The leader insist that his photos be everywhere

Children are encouraged to pledge to him

And it uses mass media to spread its message to the masses

This is not good

North Korea is saber rattling again, just a short time after getting the bomb (thanks President Clinton)

The decision by Pyongyang to nullify all military and political accords, including declaring the maritime border between the countries "void", increases the prospect of an armed confrontation on the Peninsula, where over a million soldiers face each other along the Demilitarised Zone that divides the countries.

Over 30,000 of those soldiers are ours.

For Carlos

This photo was taken shortly before I was attacked. As you can see I am in front and on the sidewalk so you can stop the lies! In fact Carlos this is where I was attacked. You may even want to take this opportunity to man up and apologize, I’ve already got a Big Mac.

Here is a photoset with almost the whole thing documented. I would note that had the guy grabbed my flag from the front we would have fallen into the marchers not away from them.
For those who have not been following my story here. On Jan. 17 as I was marching the gentleman in this flickr set tried to take my flag, I did not let him, the police took him away and Carlos called me a liar. We have been exchanging words on this, among other things, for some time now. You can read the exchange here. Thanks to a YouTube viewer who was trying the same thing (He actually told me that these photos were on the web) I found photos that exposed the lies of both men.

Seattle Anti-Israel Protest Week 5

I didn't expect much this week, the war was over, Hamas had lost and the truth of their brutality was coming out. Only about 200 people showed up. There were no speeches on the stage, no march, and no bull horn. This is likely to be the last protest of this kind but I'll head down next Saturday to make sure we don't miss anything.

They did have a few things that were were different;

Week 5 001 Week 5 003 Week 5 061

Week 5 018 Week 5 039 Week 5 118
