Opinions Versus Facts

"Why some people insist on believing whatever they want to believe is a question that is hard to answer. " And yet they will continue to believe it, even as the evidence to the contrary piles up in heaps of wreckage around them: "Such demagogues thrived as Detroit became a wasteland." Rather than accept the evidence, they will instead elect so-called leaders who buy into the false narrative with the intention of enriching and empowering themselves. Its amazing to me to what lengths human beings will go to relieve themselves of having to think. Truly amazing.
I think the decision had more to do with making sure all commuters and other bystanders were off the streets. Everyone in the local area knew this was coming. I think law enforcement wanted everyone to have time to clear the area, that way, when the decision came down, the only ones left on the street would be police, protesters, and media (who have made a circus out of this whole thing IMHO). Much safer for uninvolved civilians and police this way.
Well, this one isn't very mysterious. He is neither liked nor trusted by a lot of active duty military personnel, AND he's quite often had a different view than his boss. Both of those factors are fatal in as far as keeping his job is concerned.

Gruber Was Right

"It was his and other advocates’ willingness to lie for the cause. And it was the media’s enthusiasm to swallow the truth and sell the lie to the people who trusted the media to tell them the truth that ensured its passage." DingDingDingDingDing!!!! Yup, that's spot-on correct. We've allowed ourselves to be completely owned by our television sets. In so doing, we've become intellectually lazy. I doubt that those who live their lives via TV will ever change their outlook; they have become too comfortable with it.

"The concept of individual freedom was not yet on my radar screen. I apologize. I was ignorant and arrogant." Don't be too hard on yourself John, at least you figured it out, and its really important you did. Individual liberty is one of the cornerstones of our republic as is the concept of natural rights. But what about the rest of the 'journalists' in media today? Do they not understand, or are they simply against the concept? Are they just out to see how far they can push their careers by pushing the contemporary 'narrative' forward, regardless of said narrative? Or are there more sinister forces afoot? From my outside view, it would appear to me to be a combination of these things with money fueling the whole thing.
Well, if a large percentage of voters here in N.H. weren't moonbat libs, we would have had the votes to pass this. Naturally Shaheen voted against it. I wish people here could have looked at the big picture and voted for Brown, but he just wasn't that popular with independents.

A Legacy of Liberalism

What you have stated here is practically a textbook definition of 'social justice' as it has been defined since the time of the stoics in ancient Greece. It is, of course, incompatible with the concept of individual liberty and natural rights which, in turn, makes it incompatible with the U.S. constitution.
"Also, though this is again not said openly, the media generally agrees with Mr. Gruber’s tactics." Of course they do. They've been deceiving us a lot longer than Gruber. Heck, the MSM makes Gruber look like a piker. Pat Caddell said it at the Accuracy in Media conference just two years ago; "...the MSM has become the enemy of the American people." He's no conservative either. What's that tell you? Personally, I agree with Caddell. You simply cannot trust the 'mainstream media' AT ALL these days.
Here we go again; riots a la Rodney King. I bet the MSM is salivating over its expected ratings surge. After all, they've shoveled enough coal into this furnace.
You're disappointed, John? Maybe you didn't think it through enough. I, for one, am not disappointed; he met and exceeded all my negative expectations of him.
And where was the MSM when these statements were made? I think the possibility of them not having heard at least one of these incidents is very remote. They most likely knew and spiked the story. Heck, they're STILL trying to spike it. What does that tell you?
