A must read

Maybe one of the most cutting and insightful pieces you'll every read................

On Monday night, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced that Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, would not be indicted in the shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown. McCulloch explained the falsehoods permeating the original media accounts of the shooting; he explained that Brown had, by all available physical and credible witness evidence, charged Wilson after attempting to take his gun from him in Wilson's vehicle.

And none of it mattered. The riots went forward as planned; the media steadfastly distributed its prewritten narrative of evil racist white cop murdering innocent young black man. President Obama stepped to the microphones to denounce American racism. He did not recapitulate the evidence; he did not condemn rioters and pledge that law enforcement would crack down on them. Instead, he said that protesters and rioters -- all of them ignoring the fact that a white police officer had not murdered an innocent black man in cold blood -- were justified in their rage.
Indeed, the president said, they had feelings. And those feelings were legitimate, all evidence to the contrary. "There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It's an understandable reaction," Obama said. What made disappointment and anger over an evidence-based verdict "understandable"? Obama explained: "There are still problems and communities of color aren't just making these problems up. Separating that from this particular decision, there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in a 
discriminatory fashion."
The key word: feels. Obama did not cite a single instance of the law being applied in a discriminatory fashion -- because in Ferguson it was not. Instead, he made a general statement, of the sort leftists often make, that broad feelings of discontent must be inherently legitimate -- because, after all, if people feel, those feelings must have a basis.

Thoughts on the Purge - Ferguson edition

Some thoughts on the Ferguson issue

1) Many of the looted and trashed businesses in the area were owned by hard working minorities who may not have had insurance; or the deductibles were so high that they may not have the money to cover the damage. Congratulations on robbing those folks of their livelihoods.

2) How many of these "protestors" had to get up Tuesday morning for their job?

3) This why I carry and have reserve guns in all of our cars.

4) To believe that Darren Wilson should be indicted and convicted of anything, you have to believe that he went out that morning looking for fight with a black man; something that's not in his record anywhere.

5) If these "protesters" were so outraged by the white establishment, why didn't they burn down all the schools? At least the government would have to build new ones.

6) It truly disgusts me that the media spent a lot of time covering rumors and innuendo that turned out to be untrue. Do you think any of those talking heads will be apologizing to the business owners for stirring the pot that melted down their business?

7) The fact that the media continues to report the rumor and innuendo despite evidence to the contrary is exactly why will have another one of these episodes withing the next year.

8) Just think about this. None of this would have happened if a couple of dumb asses would simply have been walking on the sidewalk.

An Imperial Presidency

Let's build a time machine

I keep hearing from the Branch Gorevidians that if we simply spend the money to develop renewable energy sources it will fuel our future Utopia.

Never mind the trillions spent by private and public entities to develop this technology over the past 200 plus years. If you spend it, it will come. It's like believing that if you spend enough money you can do time travel.

Well, Google has finally gotten the hint...............

Two highly qualified Google engineers who have spent years studying and trying to improve renewable energy technology have stated quite bluntly that renewables will never permit the human race to cut CO2 emissions to the levels demanded by climate activists. Whatever the future holds, it is not a renewables-powered civilisation: such a thing is impossible.

Both men are Stanford PhDs, Ross Koningstein having trained in aerospace engineering and David Fork in applied physics. These aren't guys who fiddle about with websites or data analytics or "technology" of that sort: they are real engineers who understand difficult maths and physics, and top-bracket even among that distinguished company. The duo were employed at Google on the RE

REclosed it down
after four years. Now, Koningstein and Fork have explained the conclusions they came to after a lengthy period of applying their considerable technological expertise to renewables, in an article posted at IEEE Spectrum.
The two men write:
At the start of RE
Renewable energy technologies simply won’t work; we need a fundamentally different approach.

Obama Switches Up Stance on Executive Action

Democrats. the party of the lawless

I've been balled up all week about the Obamunists taking over DC and I've struggled with what bothers me the most about Democrats in general and Obama specifically.

Here's what I've come up with. If you are a ding dong, derelict or douche bag, you get the attention of the Obamunists. If you go to work, raise your kids, pay your bills............what the hell is wrong with you.

Take for instance...............

1) If you owe the IRS over 4 million in back taxes, are responsible for the deaths of people in NYC and tarnished the reputation of a NYPD office, you get invitations to the White House. Meet Al Sharpton.

2) If you are an accused child rapist but a good bundler for the president, you get a ride on Air Force One. Meet Terrence Bean.

3) If you desert your military post, the president will negotiate your release with money and terrorists. Meet Bowe Bergdahl. If you accidentally drive into Mexico and are wrongly incarcerated, the administration, nor our military, will pick up the telephone to call an alleged ally to get you out. Meet Andrew Tomooressi.

4) If you come into this country illegally, you get the red carpet treatment. If you followed the law, spent lots of money, time and resources to be a citizen legally. Well.......... you are just a dumbass.

Anyone catching a pattern here?
