Happy New Year, everybody! We’ll begin this first week of 2015 with another doubleheader of podcasts from our resident podcaster extraordinaire, Burr Deming. Today, BBurr first examines, with great sensitivity, the bad effect even a few bully cops can have on society.
I was used to family opinions. Everybody has one.
This was different. This time, everyone had a personal story.
On the way home, the traffic itself provided an insight in good, bad, and cascading effect.”

In the second podcast, Burr rips a gaping hole in the lying argument presented by war criminal DICK Cheney that torture was effective, and that it wasn’t even employed by us at all after 9/11, as put forth by the lying George Tenet, or that a very partisan and lying Lindsey Graham could so easily dismiss.
In this one, entitled “Torture and the Lie of Effectiveness”, Burr states, “ Cannibalism was seen as the ultimate depravity, too horrible to contemplate. But when the story of the Donner Party became known, most survivors were treated with compassionate sympathy. The circumstances seemed to justify the unthinkable.
There is a lesson that applies to the debate on torture. It may be an unexpected lesson.”
