It is extremely immature for someone to go berserk and fight arrest to the point that he has to be tased and sprayed multiple times. It is not a sign of "toughness" but stupidity. And people wonder why some wind up in jail more often than others.
On another subject, campaign donations, there is a question. If one person gives $10,000 to a politician, and 10,000 people give $1 each to his opponent, which one do you think has more support? When multi-billionaire & extreme left-wing liberal George Soros gives millions to defeat a candidate, but that person cannot raise the funds to fight back, who do you think will win, right or wrong? We get to vote twice, once when we go to the polls & again when we donate. One vote is equal to all others & the second isn''t. It''s sad but true that money buys elections & will continue to do so until we find a way to equalize donations.

Here's one more thing. The Nations health insurers gave 86 million dollars to the Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of killing the healthcare bill. The insurers appeared to be for it while working to defeat it in private. Never mind George Soros. We know who he is. And now we have the health insurers being someone we thought we knew, but are really someone we didn't know.
As long as health insurers have a leading role in our health system, we will never be able to achieve affordable care. There are 51 million people uninsured today and more than 45,000 deaths a year because people can't afford medical care and the Republicans want to do away with it.

Ahhh George Soros, the billiare who made some contributions to democratic causes. He's the new boogie man created by Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity. They created him so that thier sheep will not look into or ask why the Koch Brother, Steve Forbes, Lehman Brother Execs, the Chamber of Commerce and others give so much money to the republican party. I wonder how much money did the McMahon's give to republican candidates in addition to the 50 million she spent on her campaign. What about Carly Fiorina or Meg Wittman.
The reason George Soros has been targeted by the right wing is because the right wing power brokers would like to ruin every person that would dare suggest that thier should be some limits place on the power of the big business and the rich and powerful in this country. Please people, stop regurgitating everything Faux Noise tells you and do some thinking for yourself.
