Driving Blind: Let Them Eat Amazon Coins!

Ethan Gach

I write about comics, video games and American politics. I fear death above all things. Just below that is waking up in the morning to go to work. You can follow me on Twitter at @ethangach or at my blog, gamingvulture.tumblr.com. And though my opinions aren’t for hire, my virtue is.

    The tale of the man getting beaten to death reminds me of this tale.

    Stuff like this should not happen in a free country. I suppose I could say that the police do not have the power or right to needlessly take a life, but that is a lie. The President, Congress, the SCOTUS, (and the cowed American people) have chosen to grant the police that power by not doing anything to curb it when events like this happen.

    We tell ourselves the lie, that “Stories like this are horrible, but they could never happen to me”.

    I’m sure David Silva kept the same lie in his heart.Report

    Stories like this make me hate the police so much.

    Then I remember that I only need to hate corrupt cops, and I feel better. Until I start wondering how many are corrupt.Report

    As I commented on the Derek piece, the Bartels study is pure partisanship. It assumes that there is no debate on how various government actions will harm the poor. For example, it assumes opposition of minimum wage increases is anti poor. In reality the arguments against minimum wage increases are that they will harm the poor, young and unskilled. In other words, Bartels has snuck in his preferred answer to an open question, and then used his sleight of hand to impugn the motives of his opposition. Bad form!Report
