Would it Kill You to Hire More Black Cops? (Yes)
As the story of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson's shooting of Michael Brown begins to look less clear-cut than we were led to believe by Brown's friend, Dorian Johnson, the "voices of oppression" on MSNBC now say the real issue is that there aren't enough blacks on the Ferguson police force.
Asian-Bashing Dems and Doormat Minorities Who Enable Them
Harry Reid is a bigoted Beltway corruptocrat with an interminable case of diarrhea of the mouth.
Thanks, Environmental Protection Agency! You've required sewage treatment plants, catalytic converters on cars and other things that made the world cleaner than the world in which I grew up. Good work.
Walter E. Williams:
Blacks Must Confront Reality
Though racial discrimination exists, it is nowhere near the barrier it once was. The relevant question is: How much of what we see today can be explained by racial discrimination?

A Problem Bigger than Ferguson

Obama Spurns the 'Optics' Police
In some prominent corners of the liberal media, the grousing has begun about President Obama's habit of hitting the golf course during crises without any concern for looking cavalier.
If 'Evil' Doesn't Apply to Islamic State, What Does?
I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil Dewar's," as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush's statements chuckle-worthy -- "We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar's!") I prefer single malts, but "evil" always seemed unduly harsh.
The Golf Course Is Obama's Faculty Lounge

Wayne Allyn Root:
A Modern Day, High-Tech Lynching of a Police Officer
Damn the facts. President Obama and Attorney General Holder are railroading an innocent police officer to fit their narrative of racism in America. The President needs an indictment and conviction to please his last remaining group of supporters - black Americans. Remember polls show that Obama is now considered the worst president since WWII- lower rated than even Nixon or Carter. Yet in the last election Obama received 93% of black votes.

A Hollow Gesture from a Failed President
This week is a true cause for celebration: the 19th Amendment was formally adopted into the U.S. Constitution 94 years ago, which granted women the right to vote. I am so thankful to live in a country that acknowledges the very firm, intelligent, and active voice and contributions of women.
Harry R. Jackson, Jr.:
How Black Was Jesus?
Can you imagine a television program airing in America that portrayed Muhammad as a foul-mouthed pothead? Given that earlier this year ABC canceled Alice in Arabiaa show about an Arab-American who goes to live with her grandparents in Saudi Arabiabecause CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) complained that the show relied on stereotypes of Muslims, it seems highly unlikely. Yet Black Jesus the latest reminder that Christianity is the only major religion it is universally permissible to denigratebegan airing August 7 on Adult Swim.

America Needs a Grand Bargain with Russia to Fight Terrorism
It should have been a no-brainer for the U.S. and Russia to cooperate to fight Islamic radicals in the Middle East. But even if you place the high-jump bar on the ground, some people will still manage to trip over it -- then insist on going back and tripping over it again.
The Promiscuous Use of SWAT Teams Is a Bigger Problem Than Armored Vehicles on Our Streets
Contrary to what you may have heard, the armored vehicles that appeared on the streets of Ferguson, Mo., during the unrest that followed the police shooting of Michael Brown did not come from the Pentagon. "Most of the stuff you are seeing in video coming out of Ferguson is not military," Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Defense Department's press secretary, told reporters last week. "The military is not the only source of tactical gear in this country."

Burger King Waves Goodbye to Obamanomics
I do not support a VAT, but as long as we are going to have taxes at all (and we are), then we need to make them as fair as possible. A broad-based consumption tax on everything but food and medicine would do exactly that.
Daniel J. Mitchell:
Debunking the Sloppy and Inaccurate Economic Argument for Export Subsidies
The Export-Import Bank is noxiously corrupt example of crony capitalism. It never should have been created. But thats something we could say about most government programs. So the real question is how to reverse the damage.

Obama’s Anti-Business Tax Agenda Chasing Burger King to Canada
Burger Kings effort to acquire Tim Hortons, a Canadian purveyor of coffee and doughnuts, is a good business decision, but its choice to locate corporate headquarters north of the border would be the direct result of President Obamas anti-business tax policies.
Facts vs. Visions
The political left has been campaigning against the use of force since at least the 18th century. So it is not surprising that they are now arguing that heavily armed or aggressive police forces only inflame protesters and thus provoke violence.
