Protection

I made this demotivator a couple of months back, posted it on Flickr, and then promptly forgot to post it on my blog for the rest of you to see.  But with Independence Day only a day away, I thought now would be a perfect time to share this particular one with the rest of you.

Protection

Have a great holiday everyone!

War on Crime - Now With Tanks

Another small county has decided to beef up their arsenal by buying a used Armored Personnel Carrier, and converting it for SWAT team use.  This one is in Georgia:

Don’t be surprised to see an Army tank rolling down a street near you.

The Cobb County police department has refurbished a donated Armored Personnel Carrier for officers to use in SWAT situations.

The vehicle, which retails for $500,000, is a Light Armor Vehicle that was used by the U.S. Army in Panama. The county paid $45,000 to upgrade the vehicle for police use.

Equipped with thermal sensors, computerized tracking devices, night vision, tear gas launchers and other gadgets, the all-black six-wheel unit can hold up to nine SWAT officers.

In case you're wondering, the population of Cobb County is less than 700,000 and they had a total of 36 murders for the entire county last year.  I made this demotivator for the occasion:

Over Compensation

John McCain - Eco Warrior

I've mentioned John McCain's failed attempts at implementing cap and trade systems before... but few people want to pay attention to it.  Republicans would rather pretend he didn't push it, because it doesn't actually differentiate McCain from Obama... but the reality is that McCain's stance on "solutions" to "global warming" will absolutely destroy our economy.  You thought today was bad?  Read all about McCain's stance on scientific issues here side by side with Obama's, including this lovely tidbit:

...The facts of global warming demand our urgent attention, especially in Washington.  Good stewardship, prudence, and simple commonsense demand that we act to meet the challenge, and act quickly.

To dramatically reduce carbon emissions, I will institute a new cap-and-trade system that over time will change the dynamic of our energy economy.  By the year 2012, we will seek a return to 2005 levels of emissions, by 2020, a return to 1990 levels, and so on until we have achieved at least a reduction of sixty percent below 1990 levels by the year 2050....

Via Reason.  And just in time for this revelation, Despair has come out with a new t-shirt which I'll be ordering for myself tonight:

Leverage

Leverage

Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall bend my lever.

I haven't made a demotivator in a long time, so it was good to get a special request for one by email.  Finding the right picture is always the hardest part.

This post by Phelony reminded me of an old fable, and then demotivation struck.

It's recently been announced that Jack Kevorkian is scheduled for parole in June, and so I thought a new demotivator was in order. Apparently he plans on doing some writing and possibly speaking... no killing though.
