A Problem Bigger than Ferguson

CptPam, a little harsh, no? Carson in his comments handled this issue with kid gloves. Fault clearly lies with Michael Brown's parents, neither of whom admitted any failing on their parts. This probably wasn't Brown's first brush with authority or bullying. It's easier to blame the cop when the fault rests with your child. Brown was clearly wrong. He thought he could get away with it because someone had taught him he could get away with it. Someone taught him to be mean. Someone was permissive. The fault was first in his home. Schools and cutting off welfare, etc will only backfire if the parents refuse to teach their children to be self-sufficient, independent, moral, ethical, and honorable people.

What do you base your comment on. Carson stated the truth about the black culture. Many young black men are defiant. In this particular case Brown, who had just robbed a store with violence, was under the influence, and had assaulted a police officer was unjustly 'defiant' a clearly in the wrong. Carson is right and you are wrong, why?
There is an old saying that goes something like, For every strong man there is a strong woman behind him. Same is true for the abusive and powerful.

Bye-Bye Burger King: High Taxes to Blame

Obama loves to collect taxes and give away that money to his special interest pets. Redistribution, remember? So much so that he will drive away legitimate business to promote his socialist agenda. He is again going renegade by negotiating a global warming treaty that he isn't calling a treaty. It will supposedly stop the world's polluters from polluting the atmosphere by each nation setting standards for pollutant reduction within their borders and shaming them if they fail. What the news article aren't or won't talk about is how the wealthier nations, eg the US will give money to the less developed nations who "suffer" by reducing their pollution--which is a scam. Redistribution, remember? The US is again being scammed by the shameless Barack the Grifter through his buddy the UN. God save America from this radical idealist.
It's a shame Obama doesn't seem to know the meaning of candor.

Anyone who has owned and operated a business will tell you that RISK is always on their mind. A customer today can turn into a law suit against you tomorrow. The 'perfect' product or service yesterday can die tomorrow. Government adds risk. At best, it adds risk and expense. We have the bureaucracy, poor policy, and poor public administration for this downturn. And what do we get for our loss? Anyone??
LePage probably has a better feel and ear for what sells back home. The AP couldn't tap into the common man with a spike and a sledge hammer. And I agree, between all the hype and static, if a person wants to be heard, he has to say something memorable. If he wants to be understood, he needs to say something blunt. PC is so 1960s. He also has to be right. If LePage is right on the issues, he has nothing to worry about. The liberals say outlandish stuff all the time but what gets them in trouble is they're wrong. In another piece of news today Moonbeam Brown welcomed all the illegals to California. Notice he didn't do that 60 days ago. And this clown wants to be President? Maybe the bleeding heart progressives in California appreciate Browns lack of discretion but many good Californians won't particularly appreciate it. But, when a state needs money, it'll prostitute itself in interesting ways.

The US has become a hostile environment for business. The gargantuan multi-nationals who get corporate welfare will stay here because they can pump up their bottom line through government intervention. It's not fair, it's not ethical but it's common for some. With hostile regulations and meddling, while favoring his special interest buddies, Obama is driving away the very lifeblood of the country's economy by raising taxes because he thinks it's fair. The man is not well--in addition to being an extremist. IF I controlled the resources of big money, I'd buy an island, set up a government and an economy, and then charge a 5% corporate tax rate. I'd be better than printing money.
will, the gay low blow, ugliness personified. Can't stay on topic and can't add a pertinent comment. Dingbat, typical.
