HAAAAAAAAA! What a self contradicting term that is. I mean I’m sick of just hearing the term “protest” period. This my friends, is a moment in history where the rubber meets the proverbial road. Now the world (especially we Americans) are FINALLY fucking seeing how much good protesting does and the corporately owned government’s response to it. (more…)

       First off let me just say that this fight isn’t between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen . . . it’s between Anderson Silva and Dana White. Silva and “Uncle Dana” have been at odds lately and here’s why. Silva feels he’s WAY too good for the middleweight divsion but he’s kicking and screaming about moving up or down in weight class.
