    What’s appalling is that the school official is upset over the skit because some kid could go home, pick up a gun and for some reason re-enact the skit on a family member…..instead of being appalled that a teacher had kids re-enact a skit of whites killing blacks, based of rumor & conjecture that fit the narrative that blacks can’t walk down the street without being killed by white people in power.

    Not necessarily….CRT states that systemic racism (from whites, against blacks) will not be resolved until the founding documents are tossed out and a new Bill of Rights / Constitution is written, given those founding documents were written by white men…making them inherently biased against all but whites.

    Once Hispanics become larger in numbers than whites, we will then be considered an apartheid state….given a racial minority suppresses racial majorities through our legal & social system. LOL

    Actually, as far as “rapping” goes, his music is far better than the likes of “Lil Wayne”, “Juicy J”, “Lil Boosie”, “C-Murder” or “Tha Bird Man”

    But one’s ability to entertain does not mean they are subject mater experts on important subjects.

    I think ABC scored the Nelly interview, so CNN brought in Talib lol

    Mason C. Weaver wrote a book called “It’s Okay to Leave the Plantation”. Mason grew up during the civil rights movement, was an admitted racist & supported the Black Panther movement. He attended UC Berkley, majored in Afro-American studies and had an “Ah-Ha!” moment after applied some critical thought to the message he kept getting about the Democrats being for “The Poor & Disenfranchised”, and the Republicans being for “The Rich & Successful”.

    He put 2 & 2 together and realized that if the Democrats are for “The Poor & Disenfranchised”, and that party gets power & influence through those people….then it is in the best interest of the Democrat party to make more people poor & disenfranchised. If Republicans get power & influence through “The Rich & Successful”, then it is in their best interest to make more people rich & successful.

    Who then is looking out for his interests to become wealthy & successful in life?

    He goes into great detail in comparing the old slavery system to the modern day government dependency plantation system, and is a very good read.

    @melbhinn – The people decide the “happy medium”. If the elected officials go rogue, or get out of hand, then it’s our civic duty to remove them from office in the next election. Same on the citizenry if they allow the country to slip into tyranny. A transition to that kind of worst-case scenario doesn’t happen over night, in some coup. It happens over time, with plenty of opportunities for the citizens to take control.

    @junkman – we deserve the government we elect. I think it would be a better approach if more than 20% of the population eligible to vote got off their butts and exercised their constitutional right & duty. Money dominates politics because to many people are content to sit on their couch & develop an understanding of the people running for office based on a hit piece ad, instead of doing research & getting engaged in the process.

    @Cavallo – I think the 2nd amendment covered all uses of firearms (guns were much more of a utilitarian tool back in the day than it is today) A right to a firearm in the late 1800s meant just as much to guarantee a person’s right to provide food for themselves, as it did to protect them from other people, and tyrannical governments. If there is literature from the founding fathers that states otherwise, I’d be happy to read it.

    Point is, we have the benefit of our system, which is unique in the world, that it should never get to the point of using firearms against or gov, although we are not protected from it.

    I get where your coming from, particularly from a purely ideological standpoint. That said, lets be real here. If fully auto weapons were equally available as a 9mm pistol, the likelihood of that fully auto weapon being used to rob a bank, or commit some other criminal action is FAR HIGHER than a scenario where you’d need one to fend off a domestic government.

    Like most things, there is a happy medium with this. While we do not need an EPA that is so overbearing that it charges citizens a fee for exhaling carbon dioxide, we do need basic regulations that keep people & business from dumping toxic nuclear waste into rivers & streams.

    Just the same, while we do not need gun regulations that outlaw the possession & use of all firearms, there should be a limit on the possession & use of weapons that are capable of mass destruction.

    If the aim is to keep a tyrannical government at bay, you do that through our legal & political framework before it gets to the point where fully auto weapons are needed by the citizenry.

    In all fairness to Don, you *CAN* fire off rounds very quickly with any semi-auto gun (not just an AR-15). In some cases, you can mod some semi-autos, or manipulate the firing action to *MIMIC* the firing capability of a fully auto weapon.

    I’m sure many of you have heard of the bumping method of positioning the trigger finger & using the recoil of the gun in such a way that it is able to fire off rounds on a semi-auto faster than being able to pull the trigger with your finger.

    All that said, if that was Don’s point, he should have stated it that way. Saying that a semi-auto is the same as a fully-auto weapon is factually incorrect. And while you may be able to achieve a “rapid fire” scenario with a perfectly legal semi-auto gun, it is still not the same as holding down a trigger on a fully automatic weapon (as demonstrated in the video above)

    If you get a chance, read “It’s Okay to Leave the Plantation”. It was written by a black man that grew up during the civil rights era, and made a transformation from the radical Black Panther crowd to conservatism, after he recognized the manipulation within those left leaning groups.

    In it, he draws many comparisons to the old plantations to the modern day dependency system….one of which highlights the similarity in the roles the black religious leaders on the plantations (working with the slave owner to keep the slaves in check via religious doctrine) and the supposed religious leaders in the black community today (still working with the new slave owners – see politicians – to keep the black community on the gov dependency system, or modern day plantation)

    I tend to agree. All you have to do is look at the vandalism of business & personal property.

    Why else would you loot & burn down a local convenience store, when Michael’s contact with the policeman came about because he was walking down the middle of the street?

    Why would flash mobs in Miami loot a corner store, when Trayvon was shot by a community watch person in a nearby neighborhood?

  • [2] August 19, 2014 at 4:05pm

    My cousin was a local beat cop and he didn’t make 40k a year…more like 30-35k. That isn’t a lot of money to put up with the BS police have to put up with (one being threat of loss of life).

    Also, regarding pensions…..the government is trillions in debt for unpaid liabilities. The government guarantees the pensions, and the government can take them away in a SHTF scenario (See Greece)

  • [8] August 19, 2014 at 4:01pm

    In addition, the inner city black communities (at large) despise the police, and don’t trust them as far as they could throw a squad car.

    For the folks that can’t achieve vertical mobility out of the ghetto (lack of education & absent parents) gang / thug life is an easier sell. Gang / thug life runs directly in opposition to law enforcement.

    Pot was NOT the culprit. And for people that use MJ on the regular, the more extreme effects of marijuana tend to fade (paranoia, giggles, etc.) and becomes more of just a numbing effect…kind of like a pain killer.

    Trust me on this, alcohol is a FAR bigger culprit in the “10ft tall & bullet proof” mentality than weed…which actually tend to make most people more risk adverse.

    The fact that he had pot in his system probably has more to do with the common place usage of it within inner city pop black culture, and less to do with a reason why he was a violent person.

    A more likely explanation is that he obviously has a disregard for the rules of law & authority for any one of several demographic & cultural issues.

    @ChiefGeorge

    I attended a middle school, in a predominately black neighborhood, during the OJ trial and there were race riot threats if OJ was found guilty….and blacks in the school celebrated when he was acquitted.

    These were middle school aged kids who only knew OJ from the Naked Gun movies, yet they were HIGHLY invested in the outcome of this case because OJ was black and the judge / prosecutor & “system” is White.

    Why on earth would you threaten to beat up white kids in the middle school because a black guy was convicted of murdering his wife if it weren’t about a racist approach to racial justice?

    No sure if the schematic shown above necessarily proves, or disproves, if his arms were raised.

    The bullet entry points in the schematic could also indicate a close grouping just to the right of Brown’s head.

    Notice on your arm where those entry points are, and then raise it. The bullet wound across from the peck is now just to he right of your cheek / jaw. The second lowest bullet wound on the lower bicep is now just to the right of the bullet wound to the right eye. The lowest bullet wound on the forearm is now just right of the bullet wound on the top of his head.

    What the schematic doesn’t show is where on the arm the bullet entered / exited. Hands raised would have meant the bullets should have entered the underside of the arm. If he were charging the cop, with arms bent in a running motion, the bullets should have entered the front side of his arms.

  • [9] August 14, 2014 at 9:59am

    While that might be true, you don’t throw a person against a soda machine for seeking clarifying information on which door to use to exit, in effort to comply with police orders to leave a private establishment.

    How do you arrest someone for trespassing at public restaurant, where you are a paying customer? Failure to comply with police orders, or something like that, but trespassing?

    And the police chief’s excuse was that the offending officers “probably didn’t know better”!?!?

    We don’t know all the details yet with the shooting, but that statement certainly doesn’t bode well for the case that the police officer involved in the shooting followed legal protocol.

    @ModRepublican

    True, there is a history of riots & excessive use of force by police officials.

    BUT, this is 2014. We have the advantage of hindsight, and yet these things are still happening, under the leadership of a president that supposedly comes from the anti-establishment / police state party.

    Also, under our current president’s leadership, department heads of government offices have purchased millions of rounds of ammunition, built up SWAT teams in departments that have no business with paramilitary forces (BLM, FDA, EPA, etc), geared up local police departments with equipment meant for armed revolution, and has pushed out training material & instruction to Sheriff offices around the country regarding threats from the local populous & domestic terrorism.

    There is plenty of culpability to spread around for all of this, but the buck stops at the chief executive’s office.

    If this were happening under a Republican president (you know…the guys that you’d expect this kind of thing from) the media would have been all over this a long time ago.

    All that said, the behavior of the Ferguson PD does not excuse in any way the behavior of the trouble makers there.

    Whats that saying? Two wrongs don’t make a right.

    There is a personal quote attributed to Williams – “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone”

    Seems about right for the rich & famous…..always surrounded by too many “yes-men” and not enough people that will tell you “No”, or the honest truth. Having to always second guess people’s motives….whether they are being nice to self promote, or genuinely being kind. Folks like that can fill a ballroom full of people, at a minutes notice, for a party….but out of the whole bunch, only a few that would come if he weren’t celebrity.

  • [1] August 12, 2014 at 12:50pm

    This is something I also didn’t understand. What is the point of raising your hands, while you run away? “I’m going to run away from threat of being arrested for wrestling with a police officer and trying to take their gun, but don’t shoot me” ?

    Also, reports are coming out that the police initially stopped him after receiving a call from the convenience store that got torched that Michael took cigars without paying for them.

    The store got looted, sacked & burned for snitching on Michael (in the words of Lil Wayne…Snitches end up in ditches)

    It’s a wonder businesses don’t set up shop in violent neighborhoods, and it’s a wonder there are limited employment opportunities in violent neighborhoods.

  • [5] August 7, 2014 at 12:02pm

    Or why not just approach the table of people that do show their appreciation for the blessings that allow them to eat the food, and personally thank them & offer verbal support for what they are doing?

    It’s no different than a group of people that told their waiter that they REALLY appreciated the food & service, and the owner / manager goes to them to personally thank them for their patronage.

    This way, you lessen the legal leg these FFRF groups have when claiming discrimination, and you also avoid people “fake praying” to get discounts. (that’s what happens when you offer tangible rewards for stuff)
