Hiring or firing someone because of their skin color is profoundly racist. Enough! Only qualified people should be hired. It's enough to not consider race, religion, sex, or sexual preferences. Can you pass the test? Can you perform? If the answer is yes, then you may be hired.

Having lived most of my 70 something years in black communities I have come to realize that there is no black (African-American) person over the age of 12 that doesn't know that "Big MIke" was a thug, as likely to beat up on someone black as someone white. Guys like Sharpton, Holder, and Obama have made a lucrative career out of being picked on 'cause they're black. The only people who believe the folks of Ferguson have a real grievance are the folks living on the upper West Side and upper East side of Manhattan and their like living in La-La Land throughout the Nation. Unfortunately, they control most of the media.
"Teenager" Michael Brown was not some little kid that the term envisions. He was a rather large thug with violent tendencies and a disregard for civil authority. Why would anyone want to be a police officer in this day and age when our racist Attorney General is laying in wait to persecute you for having to defend yourself. The Obama administration was supposed to be "post racial". It should be called "most racial".

The Pope and Capitalism

A lifelong Catholic, I was taught that the Pope was infallable in matters of religion, at least the Catholic religion. I have also been taught that the Church is apolitical (of course that is a fib). It is obvious that this Pope has no experience in business and I suspect he is a really poor student of World history. Capitalism is the greatest tool the "common" man has. Capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than any other system. It has released the full measure of human talent to the benefit of all. Systems of social control, such as Fascism or Communism or Royalty, have long histories of oppression and murder. This Pope should open his eyes and shut his mouth about Capitalism.
The use of the noun holidays is a tool to avoid the mention of Christmas.
I watched the last few episodes, mainly because my wife liked the story. I thought it was horrible, but Coulter is right, it's about pride before the fall. The show still sucked. It is full of tension without the humor and retribution that a series like Dexter had.
Ted Cruz and company are the future of the Republican Party, or whatever succeeds the Party it after the party collapses from being exposed as not representative of the Conservative view. No wonder idiots like Bill Cliinton and Barak Obama got elected. The Republicans have been nothing but Progressive Light. Hardly inspiring conservative voter to get out the vote.

Community Organizer Goes to War

Why should we believe a fraud who spent 3 months in Vietnam during which he nominated himself for a Purple Heart? I recall he was among War protesters who threw their medals in the trash, on camera. Now he tries to capitalize on his unearned medals. The man is a fraud. No one should believe him. That aside, did John McCain, a real hero, not learn from Vietnam. Limited wars can't be won against local populations unless you want to get brutal, i.e. unlimited. We've seen the proof over and over. As for Kerry's boss, the fraud that pretends to know the "black experience" life has never landed a glove on Obama. He is a spoiled novice, nurtured in Academia, protected, pampered and out of his league. Let's not lose any of our young men and women to a war to make this guy look good. The World knows he isn't the spirit of America, he's no leader.
