The Four Freedoms are Ours to Fight For.
Author: Raine    Date: 11/22/2011 22:11:58

First for a little background: This blog was built upon the ideas of the Four Freedoms set forth but Franklin Delano Roosevelt. If you don't believe me, let me take you to our Mission Statement.

We take these Four Freedoms very seriously. As a reminder, they are:

Freedom of Speech
Freedom of Worship
Freedom from Want
Freedom of Fear

With that said, the happening this week at University of California-Davis by Lieutenant. John Pike brought me to build upon an internet meme.

John Pike stepped on every freedom that FDR wanted for all Americans. Want to see how? Let me show you.

Freedom of Speech -- From Norman Rockwell:

When Officer Friendly becomes Officer Pepper-Spray.

I'll also add a reply to Mr. Rove...when he asks "Who gave them the right to occupy America?" I believe the answer to be Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.

And I just learned this.


Riot control agents (RCAs) such as CS were the topic of long and heated debates during the CWC negotiations. At issue were their inclusion in the treaty and the restrictions that would be imposed upon their use. In the end, a compromise was reached under which States Parties are to declare to the OPCW the RCAs they possess for law enforcement purposes. Though use is allowed for these purposes, it is prohibited as a method of warfare. Furthermore, if a State Party considers that an RCA has been used against it as a method of warfare, it has the right to request assistance from the OPCW. Such a request will trigger an investigation of alleged use (IAU) by the Organisation, after which a decision will be made by the Executive Council regarding the provision of further assistance.

Fun fact in the Norman Rockwell vein:

The police officer in the Officer Friendly painting was one Officer William J. Obanhein of the Stockbridge MA police department, later to earn fame (infamy?) as "Officer Obie" in Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant Massacree".

Wow.

That is amazing.

It's late, but I am now tempted to meme that painting.

Ok I can't meme it. Clintster, this is all too perfect.
"Alice's Restaurant" recounts Guthrie's true, but comically exaggerated Thanksgiving Day adventure as a satirical, deadpan protest against the Vietnam War draft. On November 25, 1965, the 18-year-old Guthrie and his friend Richard Robbins, 19, were arrested by Stockbridge police officer William "Obie" Obanhein for illegally dumping some of Alice's garbage after discovering that the town dump was closed for the holiday. Two days later, they pled guilty in court before a blind judge, James E. Hannon. The song describes to ironic effect the arresting officer's frustration at this "typical case of American blind justice," in which the officer was prepared to present "27 8Ă—10 color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us," only to have the judge enter the courtroom accompanied by a seeing-eye dog. In the end, Guthrie and Robbins were fined $50 and told to pick up their garbage.
