Happy Violent Commie Day!
It’s May Day. Various groups of organized labor, socialists, communists, anarchists and illegal immigrants are gathering in 70 cities to break stuff, antagonize police and reinforce their image as a bunch of violent maniacs. If you’re anywhere near one of these gatherings, do yourself a favor and keep clear of them and stay safe. Oh. And don’t believe the headlines that say these protests are all about the Arizona immigration law. They are an annual event and were planned long before the law was passed.
Also of interest today- The oil leak from the rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico is still out of control. President Obama announced that he was sending SWAT teams to inspect every oil rig in the Gulf and that Homeland Security and the Department of Defense would be called in , if necessary. There is a lot of speculation about why Special Weapons And Tactics teams would be needed. The Daily KOS suggests that the SWAT teams aren’t literal SWAT teams, but instead are the University of California Santa Cruz’s Coastal Biodiversity Survey which is nicknamed The SWAT Team. I suppose that’s possible, even though a team of biodiversity researchers on an oil rig are about as useful as a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see as more information becomes available.
