Being reported on local news here in Chicago this morning, a dozen witnesses who spoke off the record to reporters have supported the account of Ofc Wilson, and that most of the people responsible for the looting, throwing Molotov cocktails, etc aren't from the community.
Isn't it intriguing that media news outlets only identify the Ferguson cop as Officer Darren Wilson, but no one has identified his race. It's been assumed he is white; at least by the black rioters in Ferguson, but what if he's not, what if he's black? Yahoo news reports that Brown was shot 6 times, twice in the head and 4 times in the right arm, and according to the coroner the shots were fired at Brown's front. So he wasn't shot in the back and he didn't have his arms raised, he assaulted a police officer and is believed to have committed a strong arm robbery. The only thing "extraordinary" here is that the 1st autopsy didn't support the pre-autopsy "eye witness" accounts so Holder has to find a way to swing it back in that direction.
"and now some in the GOP, treat our interests as just a talking point." "Some" in the GOP? Who in the GOP, name names Kurt. Is it Rand Paul? Rand is a Libertarian not a Republican, and Libertarians have long held a isolationist non-interventionalist position on foreign policy. His father Ron even more so. So aside from Rand Paul, who in the GOP is week kneed on a strong military?
I don't think it's about "testicular fortitude", I think this is a willful degradation of America's international status, super power status, not coincidentally related to his domestic policies that are degrading the economy. As he said; "fundamentally change America". As Rush Limbaugh says, bring this country down a few notches.
Doug, you and I will never get it, we're white. We've seen examples like Ferguson for over 20 years now, and always perpetrated by low class blacks, in their mind they're entitled to behave this way, then hide behind their skin color.

Has he written any peer reviewed reports on the climate change experiments he himself has conducted, or is he just regurgitating the hodgepodge of falsified and exaggerated data every other climate science quack uses?

The Problem With The Right Part 2

I've always believed that abortion should be a States Rights issue. Since the Supreme Court federalized it in '73 the only recourse for an outright ban is a Constitutional amendment, which ain't gonna happen. Yet recently, a number of states have been successful in placing restrictions on abortion; limiting it to 20 weeks, requiring the doctor to have an affiliation with a local hospital, requiring the clinic to maintain the same cleanliness standards as a medical clinic, etc. So to a certain degree the issue has come full circle and is now a States Rights issue.

Meet The Women Fighting ISIS in Iraq

You do what you gotta do, that this is happening in Muslim culture is amazing. But I guess it's not Muslim culture but Kurdish culture, which seems to show a willingness to elevate women above traditional Islamic teaching to a new, more independent status. In the eye's of Rush Limbaugh they could be the All Iraqi 1st Cavalry Amazon Battalion, sent into battle while suffering from PMS. ISIS wouldn't stand a chance. 600 heavily armed men hating women could destroy a division of ISIS fighters in a day, need I say anymore?
Putin: I didn't think Ukraine would actually open fire. Hey Vlad, bad policy. Word gets around Ukraine kicked your butt and every Eastern Euro country will stand up to you. I mean after all, look what's happening to the U.S. under Obozo. Nobody takes us seriously anymore either.
