Punks, hooligans and assholes

Toronto G20 rioting

Ya gotta wonder what kind of brain dead witless wonder would ever think that setting cop cars on fire was going to endear the public to his cause, no matter what the cause may be.  I’m not a big fan of a heavy handed police state but I was chortling today as I watched the Toronto cops sort things out.

I just told Marilyn a story that Aunt Janet told us years ago.  She didn’t have much patience with “hippies” – which to her meant anyone with long hair and/or an anti-establishment attitude.  There was some kind of a sit-in happening – anybody else remember sit-ins?  Some fool had planted his ass in the middle of an intersection and was sitting there cross legged, probably humming.  Up comes a Vancouver city cop riding his horse.  Grabs the hippy by the hair, lifts him clear off the ground and transports him to the curb.  Nip it in the bud.

On a more positive note it sounds like Prime Minister Harper sat the chosen one down and explained the facts of life to him.  Any bets as to whether he goes home and does what he said he is going to do?  I’ll give you odds the U.S. deficit in 2012 is significantly larger than it is today, Obama’s promises to the contrary notwithstanding.
