You are not alone. As for WJF it is a tragedy that a man is dead and another man's life may be ruined. But in the grand scheme of things it does not affect me at all. The only affect it has is if we play and give the media hype and the thugs and race baiters credence. The only thing that will affect all of us is the damage to the judicial system if the they win and the only way they win is if we play to their tune. Great article Derek
The militarization of police forces started when there was a spate of police being overwhelmed by criminals with more fire power than they had. So true to form the government both local and federal, swings the pendulum way far the other way and start arming police forces with military style equipment. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing. Just as guns don't kill people, people kill people. Military style equipment does not kill people, people kill people. But quite frankly, if it is between using military equipment to quell rioting thugs and the police getting the stuff beat out of them, I vote for giving them tanks and cannons. I don't care what race you are if you act like rabid animals you need to be put down like rabid animals.
Someone needs to come to San Antonio where the coruptocrats are trying to purge ubber and lyft out of existence. The local taxi companies are having fits and the police chief is the one carrying their banner with gusto. Maybe his finances need to be examined given how vehement he is about the issue.

In response to Henry VIII comment about choosing battles wisely, there is choosing your battles and not fighting at all. At the time the US got into WWII the overwhelming consensus at the time was the war was already over. We went there to hopefully stop the disaster from taking over England. And by the way since when did losing a battle ever ever ever ever stop the left. They never give up, NEVER. They are relentless. Republicans turn and run as soon as someone shoots back. Say what you will about Ted Cruz, but at least he can articulate his message. Can anyone say that about the speaker of the house or any others in the Republican leadership?

I understand not fighting a fight that you know you cannot win. But as when Trent Lott gave in on the government shut down whenever that was, the Republicans caved as soon as they got any blame at all. I believe had Trent Lot stuck it out, the country would have learned that the scare tactics of the left were lies and that their social security checks would still arrive. The lie about a "government shutdown" is that there is so much that is automated about government functions it is nearly impossible to shut it down, unless the President actually takes action to stop stuff like closing a monument that is an open air monument that has no controlled access like the WWII memorial. He was on the verge of taking a lot of heat for that and then the crepe eating surrender monkeys of the Republican party snatched defeat out of the mouth of victory. I guess we should rename the Republican party the French party.
