Starbucks is free to scribble graffiti on my cup; I’m free to give it back and insist on a clean container that doesn’t insult my intelligence with political demagoguery.
It hasn’t been lost on me (and many others) that most of the caterwauling about race relations in recent years originates from people who have a vested interest in harnessing the issue for financial or political gain. For the “social justice” crowd, discussions on race relations must begin from the premise that Michael Brown was surrendering and Travon Martin was an innocent, candy-eating kid.
I don’t participate in conversations that must by definition start from false premises. So I won’t be engaging in Starbucks’ conversation. And I’ll be happy to insist on propaganda-free service when I go there.

I’m all in favor of disbanding the Ferguson Police Department. This is a community that doesn’t deserve policing. Erect T-walls around the place, and let them provide their own vigilante security. And then after a few months the whole problem will be moot.

Watching the democrats squirm was one of the highlights of the speech. Reminded me of a bunch of roaches who can’t find cracks to crawl into when someone turns on the lights.

Here’s what would really make my day: Netanyahu speaks to Congress to outline the dangers posed by a nuclear Iran. At the conclusion of his speech he announces: (a) that the Israeli Air Force has taken care of the problem during the previous half hour; and (b) a generous shipment of Depends has been delivered to the White House.
An extra Depends each for Obama and Rice. Bumper stickers: IMPEACH OBAMA

That Harf bimbo over at State gives her a close run.

Well, now. So a Somali terrorist group just happens to threaten attacks on a specific location (I thought only the Obama Administration gave away battle plans in advance) on the same week when the DHS funding controversy comes to a head. Absolutely! Can I have a helping of Arizona beachfront property along with that order?
Hey Twin Cities:
Aren't you glad you offered safe haven to thousands of Somali muslims?
Now they're turning on you.

It’s not a issue of fraudulent numbers (although they may very well be false). The real issue is whch numbers are relevant. The number of people not working is vastly different from the number of people who are officially “unemployed.” The number of people not participating in the job market continues to skyrocket. “Unemployment” numbers only account for those who are still looking for jobs. The percentage of people who are not working and not looking is much higher than those deemed “unemployed.”

Sometimes spooning back to people the medicine they’re trying to dispense can be a powerful tool. Folks need to start filing Equal Opportunity complaints and demanding investigations of fools like the administrators at Princeton on grounds that they are illegally discriminating against people based on their gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. EO complaints stall or abort careers. Stir up enough of them, and the idiots might be bothered to get a clue and back off.

So Bundy ruffles feathers among enthusiasts of the “racism” industry. But is he right? Let’s consider the facts. Southern slaves depended on their plantation masters (all democrats, by the way) for food and lodging. Their families were splintered in the slave markets. They had no hope of escape. Emancipation arrived, but then a few decades later, along comes LBJ, master of the government plantation. So today, descendants of the slaves depend on the government for food and lodging. Their families are decimated by government policy. They have no hope of escaping the subsidized poverty cycle. The only different is that the Southern plantations grew cotton. The cash crop on the government plantation is votes.
So who’s the racist here? Bundy, who questions whether the modern Black family is better off than their enslaved ancestors? Or the political heirs of LBJ, who infamously said of his “war on poverty” scheme, “These Negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something. I’ll have those n*****s voting democratic for the next 200 years.”
The truth may be unpleasant, but it’s still the truth.
Jackboot police thugs like this are going to get killed. And when I sit on the jury of whoever shot them, I’ll vote for a medal instead of a conviction.

Glenn is absolutely right, and as an officer in the U.S. Army, I’ve been saying it for some time. Obama (and his string pullers) have successfully mounted a bloodless (mostly, so far) coup against the U.S. Constitution. We military officers have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I’m convinced that the day is soon coming when we’ll have to make some hard choices about living up to that oath.
Like all the rest of the esteemed Comrades in Amerika's Armed Forces, you'll choose your pension and benefits. A new Constitution is in order, as is a new Flag with one Red Star.
Obama also swore and oath and look where that's getting us.
The military will follow their orders and shoot, just like Ukraine and Germany ( I just followed orders). The only difference between America and most other countries is, AmericansTHINK they are free...LOL. Frogs cooking and we don't even realize the water is almost boiling. But, don't worry the media will support your actions and convince the lemmings it was justified for JUSTICE!
Let's face it the politicians have no fear of the citizens and rightfully so. They can do whatever they want.
Get yours before there is nothing left!
you are so full of it- i have lots of friends in the military and you neo-confederates are being drummed out of the service

And you really think the mere purchase of a permit will stop leaches with lawyers from filing lawsuits?

Yes, and German Jews submitted to Hitler’s requirement to wear yellow stars, too.

As an attorney in the U.S. Army, I can assure you that prayer is alive and well in the military–as it should be and always will be. Last time I was in Iraq, our commander gathered us all around and prayed aloud before every mission. No one objected. All official ceremonies begin and end with an invocation and benediction, and I’ve never attended a unit-sponsored, special event involving a meal (Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.) that didn’t involve a prayer. In fact, I would relish an encounter with a military official who tried to infringe on religious expression. He would quickly find himself embroiled in every variety of administrative complaint found in this JAG officer’s kit bag.

You always will find some elements of the church gullible enough–or corrupt enough–to collaborate with evil. Even Hitler has his collaborators among supposedly Christian groups.

So it’s “inevitable” that a future GOP candidate fir President will support gay marriage? If so, then it’s inevitable that a future GOP candidate will lose.
The GOP, in my opinion, is a lost cause. I’ve supported it by default all of my life, but “democrat-lite” is not my party and will not receive my vote.
And by the way, the “States’ rights” argument is bogus in this context. DOMA doesn’t tell states how to define marriage. It merely defines the marriages in which the parties may receive federal benefits. A state can legalize “marriage” between humans and baboons, and DOMA will be irrelevant until Steve and his baboon buddy try to file a joint tax return.
you will soon see DOMA struck down on constitutional grounds

And why, pray, is it unacceptable to classify sodomy alongside bestiality, pediphilia, alcoholism, and other deviant behaviors? We must remember that homosexuality was deemed a deviant behavior by the American Psychological Association until the APA leadership, in the 1970s caved to threats, blackmail, and other forms of intimidation and arbitrarily changed the standard.

After reading this article, I immediately scanned the several hundred icons that represent my friends on Facebook. Only one square turned up. I quickly fixed that anomaly.
