Still laughing at this brilliant column. Your point is astoundingly well made. I just hope that there are many many people who read and understand it. Going to keep laughing so I don't cry.

18 years old makes him an adult according to the law. He is no longer a child and can vote, sign contracts and join the military without permission. He is now responsible for his acts in a way that a "child" is not.

As usual, Obama just had to put in his two ignorant cents in. The man just can't help himself. IF he sees a chance to fan the fires of imagined racism he puts both feet in his mouth and makes stupid comments. He does not know what happened in Ferguson any more than any of us who were not there know. Yet he makes remarks that are bound to add to the bad feelings against the police and to muddy the waters as to what actually did happen. Maybe someone ought to address the irresponsibility on the part of the so-called president. He might have eased the situation by telling everyone that it was important to remain calm and wait until all the facts were available before jumping to conclusions. He might have warned that looting and destroying private property was unlawful and inappropriate a response to a lack of knowledge. He might have just said, "Wait until we really know what happened. Justice will be done, but you first need to know what went on." Did he do any of that? Did he even keep his mouth shut? Nope. Had to make things worse.
What about the Full Faith and Credit part of the Constitution? If she had not had a legal carry permit, maybe. Maybe. But she did have one. As a crime victim, she had every right to obtain protection for herself I hope that there is a way for her to establish her innocence. It is well known that New Jersey trolls for anyone out of state that might look like a hunter or who might be a contract worker come in from another state. They know perfectly well, that it will be an easy bust on gun charges. Never mind the Second Amendment. Never mind the Full Faith and Credit clause. This woman deserves to be let go and all charges dropped.
Wow. Stealing mag wheels must be really really really easy then. Getting a voter ID is so easy it is pathetic. Got a drivers license? Bingo. Got a bank account? Got welfare? You need a picture ID for any of that. If you are disabled, you can still get an ID from the local Department of Motor Vehicles. Picture and all. Most under aged drinkers know how to get a photo ID. It might be fake, but they can still get one. Sort of off topic, but I could not resist the fun. The pint is taken on the article. It is always a good idea to wait for information before going off half cocked. And if there are no (or few) black police, whose fault is that?

Must We Have a Dead White Kid?

You seem to have a slightly whitewashed picture of parts of what happened in Ferguson. Perhaps you may have changed your mind as more information is made available. This young man, whom you assume was just a bright 18 year old college student in the process of breaking out of the typical mold of black criminal youth, may actually have been the perpetrator in a strong-arm robber that had recently taken place. Change the picture slightly? What about the rioting and looting that apparently attracted out of towners who wanted to get in on the fun? The police had good reason to fear for their lives. Heavy protection might have been justified. Changing the picture again? Add in Jesse Jackson and his attitude that everything the police do against the blacks is because of racism stirring up the town and you continue to get an increasingly muddy picture of what really happened there. Before you write about how a bright (ergo probably innocent) young black man was involved and the police over reacted to the rioting by using para-military equipment to protect themselves and the community from rioters, you might want more information. By the way, your provocative title shows where you were going to go.
Part of the problem is that it wasn't just the people of Ferguson who thought destroying their entire town was a good idea. There were people pouring in form out of town to take part in the burning and looting. Hey, a party is a party, right? Of course, you can always count on the race baiters to show up without having a real clue about the problem, but just knowing that it was racism! The only facts that anyone knows for certain in the beginning are that a young man was shot by a policeman and who the policeman was. His name has since been released. (I hope he has good protection.) As information slowly becomes available, there seems to be a question of whether or not the young man was involved in a strong-arm robbery. As the light begins to dawn and information becomes available, the reaction of the town seems wildly over the top. Are terrible mistakes made on occasion by the cops? Sure. It happens. Did it happen here? No one yet knows. Calls for UN intervention, Martial Law or other strange and generally useless actions seem a bit premature. There are more than 300 million Americans. Most of them obeyed the laws. I think we're okay here. Back off a bit. Take a deep breath and wait for all the information before you go out and burn something.

Back to School

It took many years to lose that little tickle of anticipation that happens every year as Fall starts to cool the air and the school year gets ever nearer. Long after I had left school and was a working wife, I still felt the year actually began in September, not in January. Just when I was starting to think the January might be the first month of the year, I had a little girl who was starting school. Now, even in retirement, I still think of Autumn as a beginning and its harbinger the yellow buses and kids with their lunch boxes streaming across the streets. There is a fine order to this. I think all new beginnings should correspond to the start of the school year, no matter what.

US Customs and border Protection can do nothing as long as this president sits in the White House. He is determined to destroy the United States as a sovereign country. Without established and guarded borders, we become nothing but a plot of land that is open for the taking. We must also protect the de facto language, which is English. The more you are able to divide the country, by race, by language, by culture, the easier it is to subdue the population and enslave it. It needs to stop now. Our borders must be protected. That can only happen if we turn back every single illegal alien that we find crossing into the country regardless of age. We must deny them any benefits including, housing, cash, welfare, education, healthcare, jobs. These are things that American citizens how work for a living must pay for and are reserved for legal citizens or those who have applied legally to work and live here. We do have laws. They are not broken, they just are not being enforced.
There are plenty of people in our country legally (you know, citizens) who are suffering and hungry. Help them first. The aged. The very young. Families who have lost everything because of the economy. I am pretty sure that the Lord will look favorably on you if you render help to your own neighbors and countrymen before helping those who are breaking the law and have only taking on their minds.
Did anyone read the recent story about the school principal in TX who was fired for telling the children that it would be best if they spoke English in class? These children will not learn English and will demand that classes be taught in Spanish because asking them to learn English is racist.
