It doesn't matter who donated, dollars are green. This lady needed help, and good people rallied. I'm all onboard for shooting looters on sight. Whether it is Katrina or other natural disaster, or protest, it is NOT acceptable. Black, white, green, or polkadot, no one is justified in victimizing innocent people! This sort of vandalism need to be dealt with harshly. There is NO excuse.
This lady deserved better... she EARNED better. Buoys my spirit, and confirms my belief that Americans are GOOD, generous, and decent people. This response was NOT out of guilt, but love for her, and appreciation of her efforts to support herself and her children. She was wronged. She is an innocent victim of events over which she had zero control. She is a credit to her community. Her business is an asset to the Ferguson community. Shame on those who had no respect for her or her efforts. So hope that they are found and held accountable. Sadly, those responsible will not contribute a nickel to cover her loss. They don't care. In this country, there are many thousands of people who DO. May she be well and prosper, and have a blessed Thanksgiving.
As long as Holder and the Obama Justice Department, can fan the flames in Ferguson, it takes attention away from his Executive Orders, Obamacare premium hikes, and other critical policy failures. God help Officer Wilson. His career is ruined, his life is a continuing nightmare. The Grand Jury ruled justly, based on the evidence, but that makes no difference to the race pimps. They will dog him as long as it benefits their agenda. My heart bleeds for the innocent, non-violent, residents of Ferguson, who have had their community looted and burned.
Actually, GREAT news! Kudos to the Inspectors General, as well as Judicial Watch, and the relentless efforts of Issa, Gowdy, and others who have kept the pressure up, until these communications were recovered. I'm hopeful those responsible will be held accountable. Would very much like to see penalties for obstruction, lying to Congress, Contempt of Congress, destroying evidence related to congressional investigation, ets., significantly increased, including loss of pension and benefits. Thanks to the Administration and Departmental stonewalling this has been a grindingly slow process. Very glad to see progress.

Long Wars Aren't Working

Stop with the "war weary". The American people aren't war weary, they're simply sick and tired of not winning! I REMEMBER Viet Nam. Walter Kronkite declared it lost, Congress held funding, we withdrew, and pulled defeat from the jaws of victory. Politics took the heroics of our military, and threw it in the dumpster. This President has taken all of the victories in the Gulf War, and ceded them to the enemy. The American people weren't "too weary" to leave a residual force in Iraq to insure gains, and bring about stability. The American people were not clamoring to release top generals from Gitmo, as islamists were gaining strength. Somehow, "war weary" was coined by the Democrat Party, echoed by the press, and became accepted within the beltway. What the American People want is to use whatever force is necessary to utterly DEFEAT our enemies, without apology. Where is Norman Schwarzkopf... George Patton? There is NO leadership in Washington. No clarity of vision. I think it would be better stated that the American People are "wimp weary", PC weary! You darned right I object to ongoing waste of blood and treasure with no clear mission, no commitment, and no courage! This administration is thoroughly committed to erasing our borders, warring with local police forces, and "downsizing" our economy, while world burns. The threats, far from going away, are GROWING, and ultimately must be addressed.

A Backdoor Tax on the Internet

Horrible idea! Like the US income tax, the European tax started at 3%, and is now near 20%. Politicians can get really creative, once they get a "fair" tax, finding more and more points along the manufacturing chain to impose it, and the consumer is paying for all of it, at the final point of sale. The income tax would necessarily have to be repealed in favor of your simple-sounding "fair" tax, or we can trust the government to have two enormous revenue streams and impose them fairly, and spend prudently. Not a chance! We need a flat tax, with loopholes closed. That is not likely, as lobbyists for powerful special interests have paid billions for the tax carve outs, and politicians can lever a huge stick to extort campaign contributions through manipulation of the ridiculously complex tax code.
anything. We've now sent in "reinforcements", who have not even had time to unpack, and have not been seated. Let's wait to see what they do, before beating and kicking them. They know who elected them, and what is expected. Their job is enormous, and complex. I wish them godspeed. The future of this country depends on them..... and US. It is essential to replace the current tenant in the Whitehouse with a Republican in 2016. This will be a long battle.
He will be lionized by the far left... celebrated even. Sort of like terrorists by their like minded co-religionists. Tea cakes and candies for all. Only problem, this is a Republic, with three branches of government, and the Chief Executive cannot make law, nor make sweeping changes in law, without Congress. Obama is out of control, without qualm, and dead set on usurping the powers of the Legislative branch or the voice of the people they represent. We sent "reinforcements" to join the war to stop this tyranny! NOW USE IT! If it takes shutting down the government, then DO IT. Rein in this lawless wannabe dictator. Don't apologize, don't waffle!
Palestinian leadership profits handsomely from the continued violence, and actively foment terrorism, teach it in schools, and reward savagery. They line their pockets with US aid, support from neighboring Islamic countries, yet the people live in poverty and ignorance. The leadership is fat and rich, and divert what funds they do not pilfer to the digging of tunnels, purchase of arms. God help Israel! The only functioning democracy in the middle east. There will be no piece. There can be no negotiation with Palestinians or any other terrorist state who has no intention to stop pursuing the utter destruction of Israel. The slaughter of the 4 Rabbis and soldier inside a temple is an unspeakable horror. Has there ever been such an outrage perpetuated by Israeli's on Imams at prayer in a mosque? Israel goes to ridiculous lengths to spare Islamic places of worship... in return, the holy sites are used to store weapons and provide sanctuary for terrorists. Then, the world condemns Israel, and calls for Israeli restraint. And we still send American taxpayer dollars. Insane.
