Obama's Vacation Blues

Really, if Hillary feels she has to "distance herself" from Obama's policies, what does that say about Obama's policies? Bush senior ran on Reagan's policies! Must have been because they actually worked.

I think most of the cops using military style equipment in Ferguson had nothing to do with Ferguson's PD. They were outsiders brought in from the county to control the population, not the normal police officers who were quickly overwhelmed by the extent of the emergency. All you have to do is look at the uniforms and you can see they're a different bunch. The real focus of your questions might have to be the County law enforcement organization, since they seemed to be the ones with the snipers and the MRAP and the guys dressed like combat infantry about to GO to Fallujah. I think in this particular case (over-militarization), the Ferguson PD is more "sinned against" than "sinning."
Good article. There has to be a better way than effectively saying "you're not competent, smart, or hard-working enough" through affirmative action, special admission policies and foodstamps (while denying employment opportunities through a jacked up minimum wage that the libs now want to jack up even more) to an entire segment of the population. Had we treated them as equal instead of as special little snowflakes that needed paternalistic patronizing to "make it," odds are we wouldn't be in the position we are now in, and more importantly, neither would they.
"...aimed at preventing them from voting?" Why, because they are expected to show a photo ID to vote -- you know, like when they apply for foodstamps or write a check? Maybe if Chapman would stop treating Democratic Party talking points as his personal gospel and started digging into the facts, his utility as a "journalist" would progress from a title in scare quotes to something more resembling what journalism ought to be.

Maybe if Democrats stopped treating blacks as inferior people who can't accomplish anything on their own, this wouldn't be the invariable story in these situations.
I remember the good old days when flaming liberals denounced the "Moral Majority" for attempting to legislate morals in the bedroom. Well, welcome aboard flaming liberals, you are now captaining that very same ship!

Overdoing the Death of Robin Williams

Jeff1138 Wrote: Aug 15, 2014 7:37 PM
I think it's enough to say that we lost Robin Williams to unfortunate circumstances. The rest is only necessary so the police can make a ruling as to whether or not it was a crime. Once that's done, can't we just remember Robin the way he was the last time we saw him? Replacing the mental picture of him laughing and riffing away on some improbable topic with these horrific images really doesn't do anything for anyone, does it?

Must We Have a Dead White Kid?

Really, the issue of Michael Brown and his culpability or lack thereof is not even relevant to the issue that was raised by the massive militaristic dose of police-ism in the streets of Ferguson. What this really showed was two major things -- first, that the police, more and more, consider themselves to be an occupying authority with coercive power including instantaneous issuance of the death penalty at their fingertips. We are no longer the "people they serve," but are instead "the enemy" to be managed, coerced, and, if necessary destroyed. Second, the unremitting assault on the Second Amendment means that they are able to put enormous coercive pressure on a free people through their superior firepower. What real choice did any of those people have in Ferguson when confronted with armored riot police with full automatic weapons? Their "freedoms" and "constitutional rights" weren't worth the scrap of paper they're written on at that point. Which is why the Founding Fathers INCLUDED the Second Amendment in the first place.
Given the intertwined nature of most modern corporations and who they are owned and operated by after six degrees of separation, I suspect that one product listed as "Democratic" is probably straight from the Koch brothers, while one listed as staunchly "Republican" is actually from some company ultimately owned by Ted Turner. In short, it's utter nonsense. If you really want to make an important difference in the market place, stop accepting shoddy and poorly manufactured goods based on your "social conscience" and start demanding actual value for your money. At the end of the day, you'll do far more for America and even world civilization by insisting on value in your purchases than you will be playing retarded games over party affiliation. In fact, if you'd do the same thing when you voted, it wouldn't make any difference which party got elected....
