Walker......he might be right for this country. Just the type of leader who can get our axe pointed in the right direction......
With one good eye, Harry won't see an axe-kicking in the making, come 2016......

Have Liberals Lost the Middle Class?

Actually, the "middle class" is quickly vanishing from our society. Huge majorities of Gen Xer's and Millennials will, over time, replace the bottom rungs of our social strata, which previously, included most of our "middle class". This diminishing middle class will for all intents and purpose, sooner rather than later, cease to exist.

Scott Walker 2016?

Regardless of Walker's level of appeal to a rank and file members of our electorate, more than sixty-five percent of those who vote wouldn't have the first clue as to what is actually "good" for them. Remember, a majority of our population who voted in 2012, cast ballots for President Ebola.
Unfortunately, here is another case of an American twenty-something not living in the real world. Living amongst a culture of "can't we all just get along" dreamy-eyed Millennials, Kassig views the world as one where everybody and everything is easily manipulated......kinda like using computer programs to alter or change the outcome. These people, as a generation, have a hard time differentiating between reality and fantasized manipulation. Young Kassig doesn't see the personal danger as a perceived white infiltrator in a muslin environment. He believes his "humanitarian" efforts provide him with a safe "pass" against jihadists and their activities against western cultural infiltrators. Categorically, these same type people would immediately shun any suggestion to enter a pit filled with Black Mamba snakes......They would consider this a dangerous situation? I have compassion and sympathy for Kassig and his parents/siblings. As for the use of common sense, Millennials, for some reason, seem to have left the room when the "street smarts" were passed out. My father taught me.......always be aware of your surroundings. The Millennial crowd would do well to heed the advice of their elders.......Not look at them as if they were old, decrepit and ignorant.

Once a municipality goes black......it never comes back. I give you Detroit and Philly as examples.
The state of Missouri is living up to its nickname as the "Show Me" State. Various government entities have demonstrated a complete lack of control in dealing with the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. Missouri needs to be shown how to quell an out of control situation by instituting marshal law if necessary. The state's governor reasons that by appointing a black "Uncle Tom" from a state agency to assume authority over the county's police department and marching with looters and vandals singing Kumbaya......the problem will vanish in a heartbeat. Until the State of Missouri and St Louis County understand there will come a time when your only recourse is to bring in the heavy artillery......dogs, paddy wagons, handcuffs, stun guns and jail time, will control be restored. Ferguson's problems didn't begin with the death of Michael Brown, they were brewing for many years because Ferguson's citizenry allowed the city to deteriorate as it neglected, the assumption of personal responsibility, maintaining respect for the rights of others and fostering a mentality that laws and regulations were created for use by somebody else. Adding to the confusion, we have a President of the United States and our Department of Justice weighing in on the situation before all the facts have been gathered. So much for leadership from the top. In addition, the racial pimps are out in full force spewing innuendo, ginning up opposition to the restoration of order. These racial fear mongers know that an ignorant crowd is an 'easy mark". These race baiters will take the opportunity to further the cry of inequality around the country by using gullible blacks for their personal gain. Unless a heavy hand comes down on this problem.....more situations like this are likely to be experienced around our country in the coming days and weeks. These are uncertain times, let's make sure we have a society that understands mob rule and lawlessness will not be tolerated, condoned or nurtured by weak governance.
Sadly, this town appears to be made up of and supported by people, whose mentality and instincts replicate that of neanderthals. Whether there is any justification or not for the action of the police, a civil society does not take to the streets and begin burning and looting in protest. I can't sympathize with anyone who claims a purported unjustified killing of an unarmed citizen.....somehow justifies retaliation which includes the breaking of numerous laws and ordinances. Strangely, I can't remember reading when a white person was purportedly killed by a police officer that white citizens deemed it necessary to take to the streets vandalizing, pillaging and destroying their own town or village. When black leaders should be calling for restraint and the maintenance of decorum, we have racial pimps like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, along with several others, continuing to fan the flames of racial injustice. Ferguson is on track to become another, in a long list of small scale Detroit's or Chitcago's, where the human vermin transforms a decent place to live and work into a decaying, crime infested no-man's land. As Detroit's dwindling population has finally come to recognize, no one else is going to come and "fix" the problems they helped create and continue to maintain. A free man accepts personal responsibility, one beholden to others remains dependent to the whims of his society. Let's enlist the minds of thinking members of the Ferguson community to express the need for civility and patience during the coming days. Looting and destroying one's city is not the solution.
