    It seems like racism is the cause of everything and the fix to everything. Poor little black babies are being shot by white police officers so the fix is to get more black police officers. It sounds like they need salt and pepper community policing so the right color police officer can shoot the same color perpetrator.

    I think a lot of people were very strung out or on edge because the usual drug pipeline was not working as well as it usually does in there trying times.

    Mike Brown and Travon Martin are added to the pantheon of Civil Rights martyrs, next to Emit Till and Martin Luther King. The right to assault a cop, preferably, a white cop will make it safer for all thieves, carjackers and thugs to work free of racist interference. This new civil right comes just in time to help take the burden of employment as a thug to a new low. Social justice has a great cost when it is not based on truth. The first casualty is the loss of the jobs at all of those burning businesses.

    How do you teach children the truth when the world teaches them you can have your own personal version of the truth? Don’t smoke! It causes cancer. But, there are a lot of old people smoking after eating a bacon sandwich. The more I was nagged about making smart decisions, the more I looked for exceptions to the rule that proved my parents wrong. It always seemed to be that there was a lot more wiggle room than my parents were allowing me to have.

    It seems that this is a lot like the shooting at an Ohio Wal-Mart where a person told police that someone was acting irresponsibly with a rifle in a Wal-Mart. It turned out to be a pellet gun. In both cases, the action started rolling by an imperfect or overly dramaic description of the action to the police dispatcher. I really think a police dog might have handled these situations better.

    This open border regime that we have is barely different from the importation of criminals and mentally ill from Castro’s Cuba during the Mariel Boat Lift in Florida several decades ago.

    The worst thing about immigration and especially open border immigration is that there is nothing that we are doing in the US that can not be done elsewhere. The tragedy is that people can not be helped where they are because the changes needed to overturn corruption and attitudes that prevent progress are going to take a lot longer than people are planning to live. Mexicans and South Americans are running not only from poverty but the socialist attitudes that cause poverty. Ironically, they will infect our own society with their negative attitudes about capitalism. Socialist countries defend their borders because of the need to pay for the benefits that they provide. In a Capitalistic society that is fairly taxed, each additional unit of production has an opposite unit of consumption that, in a stable world balances out. The progressive tax system however requires that new arrivals who consume more than they produce in tax money must be avoided. Liberals seem to say that immigrants deserve citizenship because they pay taxes and have been doing so for years. The problem with that is that they don’t pay enough taxes to equal everything that they consume. Our progressive tax system requires a lot of rich people to pay for the poor. The number that can be absorbed is not even calculable in an exact way. Worst yet, nobody seems to want to try. Set the cruise control to U for utopia and don’t even bother to look out the window.

    From day one the Obama Administration has used government property and people to support the Democrat party. Obama has suffered and permitted if not outright demanded that his lackeys do everything they can to win the next election. They perpetrated a black ops project by sending arms to Mexico so that they could be found at crime scenes and thus prove that the NRA and weak gun laws were a problem and needed to be fixed with pre-confiscation laws. They refused to enforce voting laws if the violators were black which benefited the Democrat Party. They used the people, process and government owned machines at the IRS to degrade resistance to the Democrat Party. They maintained open borders even when dangerous people were finding it easy to get in because it helped their ability to get more voters. They financially rewarded failure in the financial markets and funded pie-in-the sky solar projects. They damaged in every way possible real energy programs by attacking coal and oil interests. What Obama did is the same thing as taking over any employers resources and re-purposing them for the benefit of his own party. This is a massive theft of service where the resources of the government are loaned to the Democrat Party.

    The time problem still remains. By the time the law gets around to doing anything, the damage will already be done. We have a lot of fun complaining about Obama leading from behind and always hearing about some event in the newspaper but the Republicans are just as bad. They don’t use what they have when they have it to its greatest possible utility. The delay on the employer mandate was a political decision to lower opposition to democrat candidates in the next election not a tweak of a program for the good of the country. The tweak was for the good of the Democrat party. I am surprised that I don’t see the words “unfunded mandate” somewhere when it comes to states absorbing the cost of open border immigration. Who do you think is going to pay for the education, court system time jails, probation, welfare and all of the other impacts of open border emigration?

    I thought that border arrests were down because the border agents were turned into babysitters and nannies.

    This is just another way to blame human depravity on something other than a universal sin problem. Why are police officers not suspected of having a cultural bias toward character problems since they often use lies to get confessions? Why are teachers not suspected of being at risk since they must constantly tell the children they are all above average to boost their self esteem? I can not think of a single profession that would not be tempted to perform better by simply changing a few definitions or pretending that the definitions had no hard edges. I see this in my state legislature as they do creative accounting to make the cost of a popular program as low as possible and the cost of an unpopular law as high as possible to bias even voting on it. If you can find an Indian somewhere in your genetic tree, you can qualify for a school loan. If you can find someone to take pity on a physical ailment, maybe you can get on disability? Temptation is everywhere. You can not escape it by having different job.

    This is just another case of evolution. You elect one specie and it evolves into another specie. It happens all the time.

    As long as there is a plan to put on a civil case, anything the father said can not be as truthful as it could be. I will give him some credit for trying to do something positive but all of the criticism about the timing and the inadequate content are still true. It is better than nothing but we still have not heard from the main agitators, Sharpton and Holder. Until there is a better definition of justice, what they want will continue to sound like a call for revenge. Mike Brown will have died in vain if people take away the lesson that the police did everything wrong and Mike Brown did everything right. If Mike Brown stepped on a mine and some continue to say there is no minefield, the field is set for the next victims.

    If they like your gun, you can keep your gun. If you don’t like your gun you have to pay to transfer your gun. This whole fiasco has been a lot like Obamacare: One side was saying it has problems and the other side saying that it had all advantages because the smart people were all for it.

    $8k deductible does not sound so bad in a case like this. But all kidding aside, didn’t the hospital see this thing coming during the admissions process?

    I always thought your Canadian Insurance died when you crossed the border unless you were going to the US for an approved procedure. I thought that Canadians had to take care of the contingency for a need for medical and even car insurance when they crossed the border for an extended vacation, like in Florida.

    There are plenty of examples of people who hurt themselves deliberately. Why can’t a homosexual just be engaging in self defeating and self abasing behavior, perhaps to humiliate a parent, sibling or spouse?

  • [1] November 19, 2014 at 1:11am

    I don’t understand how gays keep coming from straight people. How do you pass an attribute that you do not possess?

    The feds have been diverting fuel taxes away from roads for a long time. The fuel tax is just a grab bag for nice to have things like bike trails, train museums, flowers along the roads and sidewalks. Trucks are supporting alcohol production subsidies. This spending is mandatory no matter if you need it or not. Even tolls are diverted to other uses. The toll road in Northern Indiana is bankrupt because the state demanded an up front payment that was spent elsewhere and not on the maintenance of the road. Mismanagement is why tolling can not save highway infrastructure. The issue is honest management of an asset. Every pothole seems to call out for more taxes when it should be calling out for honest and better management. Every vehicle mile of travel generates about $3.85 in GDP. The lost tolls are probably caused by the decline in the economy also. Billions of dollars are wasted every year on roads that have zero chance of yielding the taxes to pay for the asset. The Chamber of Commerce attitude is that if you build it, they will come but if you build it and they don’t come, someone somewhere else has to pay for it. Urban areas are paying for goofy economic development roads by experiencing more and more congestion. When the stock of roads that are financially stable can not longer support the roads that can not support themselves, the people who mismanaged this transportation asset will simply ask for more taxes.

    A Bible club should not offend Muslims because their own Qur’an declares the Torah, Psalms and the The New Testament are given from Allah. See Qur’an 4-136, 5:50 and 5-58. They are trained to declare that it is corrupted because it does not fully agree with the Qur’an. The Qur’an further suggests that they seek clarification from People of the Book on what the Bible says. Of course this is all before Allah, speaking through Muhammad, demands that Muslims kill the People of the Book, so this is always a good conversation to have in a safe place. Qur’an 6:34 declares that no one can change the words of Allah but it might be interesting to have Muslims explain how the Bible got corrupted if the Bible was also given to the People of the Book by Allah.
