America Needs More Walks

Walks are good. Walks are healthy. Walks take us to new areas. Walks bring new perspective.

One of my favorite walks is the Perp Walk.

Historically the perp walk has been reserved for organized crime ...




I think it's time to expand the walk.

Wouldn't these two look wonderful shackled together (they might enjoy it) as they were led to the paddy wagon. Rebekah could always cover Rupert's face with her hair.


Allegedly Rebekah has had more than 200 death threats from employees of the paper she managed to destroy after it had been in business for 168 years. 200!? Sounds low to me.

Perhaps she and Rupert need Witness Protection. They could relocate to Reno as Carrot Top and Droopy Dog.

Even at his advanced age Rupert has just graduated from the Droopy Dog/Joe Lieberman School of Oh Poor Me



Another field just ripe with Perp Walk Pickins is ...




As wonderful as it is to see folks out protesting I would much rather see more of ...


Of course he's out of court on his own reconnaissance. You need to be poor or dark skinned in order to get a room in jail.



Scary at the edge. Ordinary Americans don't have the glass, we just hang on from sheer force of will. I'd wish for this motherfucker to fall but he'd just land on a mom of three working two jobs.

During a recent joint session of Congress it occurred to me how easy it would be to get a good perp walk going ...


They're already all lined up and separated by party. My suggestion would be to get the Republicans processed first - I imagine there would be so much more paperwork for them.


As angry as I am with the disproportionate balance of wealth and power I really can't condone violence so I think pies in the face are a healthy alternative. It humiliates the douchebag, it makes for good comedy and nobody gets hurt.

Plus think of all the dry cleaners who could profit from laundering the Chanel suits of rich young wives - that would create more jobs than not taxing the rich ever has.

It's never the bosses that suffer really is it? :(

I like your idea of pies in the face for all of these people - let's start with Congress and the Senate and make sure that there are pies enough for everyone on both sides of the aisle as I think they ALL deserve a good pie to the face or a boot to the ass or both. Maybe then after we all have a good laugh, they can get the country back on the right path.

But R & R did say sorry. hehe

Love that 'scary at the edge' photo and your thoughts!

Reb said...

I was thinking "too bad there is glass" in that 'scary at the edge' photo. As always a well done post Dianne, do you think there is room for a few Canadian politicians there?

Ruperts face could be a before picture for botox.

Not much more to be said after THIS post, Dianne. (sigh) I'm getting really tired of the news these days...

Au and Target said...

We could do the same in Malaysia, except we'd have to start with the police as so many are corrupt, LOL!

I thought all the police in the US handcuffed everyone they arrest? At least, that's what they seem to do on the news. It all looks very violent to me even though I've had no real trouble on my visits beyond being stopped by police who don't like to see people walk along a road that's not a park or inner city street. The police start off rude and aggressive and then speak politely when they hear my accent. I don't think I'd speak to them much if I lived there. They're not people friendly.

Yikes! I take the lazy way out and try not to think about all this stuff. (And I know that's how evil triumphs, but I don't know what to do about anything, so I just try to forget it all.

Daryl said...

I cant think of a thing to add to this .. you're spot on as always

IWS Radio said...

Absolutely! What this country needs is a few good perp walks.

The Murdoch's & Brooks won't get what they deserve (a public hanging) but I suspect they will get a karmic dose of something they created :

Merciless hounding by the press.

Hopefully the rumours that the Anon/Lulzsec hacker groups have got their emails is true, that should be good material when it's released :-)

Frank Baron said...

I love your rants. They're always pointed and clever - a joy to read.

Stay outraged (as long as your blood pressure doesn't get out of whack).

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

BRILLIANT, my dear!! You tell it like it is and so eloquently, too--PLUS, you are funny! A Can't-Be-Beat, combination, in my humble opinion!
The Murdoch Bottom Feeders---I hope it all falls in on them, but GOOD!

I really do want to see you on HBO some day.

Great Comedy Dianne...unfortunately from real tragedy.

Rambling Woods said...

I needed a laugh today..supposed to visit my daughter but I am too heat sick to make the trip and of course she can't admit that her Mom had health problems...sigh..

Bijoux said...

OMG - I would LOVE to see a perp walk from Congress. But they'd all have to actually show up for that!
