As regards that horrible attack posted to Facebook: first off, let’s not be like our Progressive friends and immediately leap to the worst possibly conclusion on this. Secondly, don’t engage in overheated rhetoric about it. From what we can tell so far, it is a horror and what we don’t need is everyone adding more fuel to the fire. I’m serious about this – we’re an ace away from someone starting to shoot. In a few weeks, we’ll have a new attorney general and my hope is that this – as well as so many other things – will be investigated.
That said – the whitewashing of this event by the same MSM which made “hands up, don’t shoot” a national phrase is disgusting.
Robert Stacy McCain has a lot to say about why we get terrible things like this:
In her recent book The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe, Heather Mac Donald described how false narratives promoted by the Black Lives Matter movement were “amplified by the media, college presidents, and the left-wing political class.” Despite clear evidence that the group’s protests were jeopardizing public safety and inciting crimes against police, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement. In their book The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama, authors Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan describe how the president’s public rhetoric has shown “a tendency to use race as a wedge to divide Americans,” politically exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin and the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.
Read the whole thing. Start a fire, pour gas on it – don’t be surprised if things go up in flames.
So, Hillary is reportedly thinking of running for Mayor of New York City. The new AG simply must indict her – for her own sake. This is an unhealthy obsession with being in politics…
This subject came up in discussion recently here – Statins may have a lot of problems.
Obama’s version of draining the swamp seems to involve letting terrorists out of Gitmo.
US House votes overwhelmingly for a resolution condemning the UN resolution on Israel. That’s nice – but get back to me when we vote overwhelmingly to defund the UN. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be overwhelming – 218 in the House and 51 in the Senate will be fine – as long as we eventually cut our ties to that corrupt, useless, anti-American, anti-Israel organization.
Ace on the subject of experts – and a lot of other things, do read the whole thing.
Suppose you want an architect to draw up plans for a house. You want a dining room because you never had one as a kid, and always associated it — from old magazine pictures, from old movies, whatever — with a stable and happy home.
Suppose your architect comes back with no dining room — just one big great room combining living room, kitchen, and dining area.
“Where’s the dining room I asked for?” you want to know.
“No one has dining rooms any more,” the expert tells you. “It’s all Open Concept now, one room sweeping into the other, bringing together the family in one big room at all times.”
“That may well be, but I want a dining room.”
“Walls are passe,” the experts smugly tells you. “They interrupt the sight-lines.”
“I don’t care about sight-lines. And honestly, I love my kids, but I’m not so crazy about them so much I want to be locked in a giant room with them 24/7. I want walls and I want a dining room,” you say again.
“No one eats in a dining room and anyway dining rooms are too formal.”
“I’d like to be formal on occasion.”
“Well,” the architect tells you, “I’ve decided that dining rooms are in bad taste and I’m the expert and you can’t have one. You’re getting Open Concept whether you like it or not, Trump Voter.”
At this point, you begin beating the architect about the face and neck and eject him forcibly from your home.
That Russian hacking is beginning to look like Fake News.
