Justice in Ferguson

Here's a pretty sobering perspective on the lawlessness in Ferguson,Mo.
A perspective that will fall on deaf ears.

Justice Was Served in Ferguson—This Isn’t Jim Crow America
“Civil rights” figures decided long ago that the only fair outcome would be indictment. But that was driven by ideology, not facts. 
The day of reckoning has arrived not just in Ferguson, Missouri but also across America. For some, the grand jury proceedings to determine whether the shooting of a black teenager by a white police officer was justified was never about seeking justice. As widely anticipated in the media, the jury of nine whites and three blacks elected not to indict based on the evidence before them. Sadly, hundreds if not thousands of individuals descended upon this small St. Louis suburb to agitate for an outcome based on their ideology rather than the facts under consideration by the grand jury. 
Even though the grand jury elected not to find Officer Darren Wilson responsible for the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown, I sadly never believed that the gathering protesters gathered in Ferguson were seeking justice or a peaceful resolution to the case, which has roiled race relations in America to levels I haven’t seen in decades.~snip~
I think it's fairly plain for everyone to see that the violence and destruction of property was instigated by the professional agitators advancing their own agenda without giving one wit for "social justice".

WaPo : Dissent will not be tolerated

Saturday night live did an opening skit making light of Obama's executive action on immigration.
So in the tradition of repressive regimes the Washington Post rides to the rescue of the Obamessiah.

SNL skit suggests Obama’s immigration executive action is unconstitutional
The cold open got the basic explanation of what the difference is between a law and executive order right. And SNL also is correct that more Americans, even if they support comprehensive immigration reform, don't believe Obama should do it by fiat.
As to whether the executive action is unconstitutional? That's a matter of debate, of course. Some House Republicans think so and may add a complaint to a suit they are planning to file challenging Obama's executive actions on his health-care law.
One Obama backer who also supports a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws says the action may be impeachable, as "by constitutional design, impeachment for 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors' is a political accusation."~snip~
Maybe I missed it but I don't remember WaPo coming along when SNL  criticized  GWB during one of their skits....but I could be wrong.

It was a funny bit but the real story here should be how, in this case, a supposed member of the press got their lapdog on when a comedy program makes light of the actions of dear leader.

Besides I don't know what they're worried about. I mean it's not like anyone has ever taken an SNL comedy skit seriously.

Liberals Always out to Shoot the Messenger

So what are campus police police supposed to do?

Colleges struggle with protecting students without being accused of victim-blaming
Don’t drink so much. "Stop victim-blaming."
Watch your drink. "Stop victim-blaming."
Walk in well-lit areas at night. "Stop victim-blaming."
If colleges cannot suggest basic common sense measures to protect students — which help guard against crimes that aren’t rape and help men as well — without being accused by the feminist chorus of blaming victims, what can they say?
“It's a tough line to tread because the blame should still be on the perpetrator, but you also want to protect these people,” Larkin Sayre, a sophomore at Massachusetts Institute of Technology told NPR.
Suggesting women don’t drink so much or don’t wear short skirts feels wrong, Sayre said, because being able to wear what one wants is “a basic human right” and “we don't tell men to not get blackout drunk.”
If there are people who aren’t telling men not to get blackout drunk then that definitely needs to change. No one should be getting blackout drunk, not just because of what crimes one could commit or have committed upon them, but for health reasons as well.
University of Wisconsin police spokesman Marc Lovicott argued that doing whatever it takes to protect students is more important than being politically correct.
“Man, it just seems like we live in such a politically correct society these days, and everybody's watching the words they use and they should be, I mean, to a certain extent,” Lovicott said. “But when it comes to crime prevention, we're not gonna stop.”
UW was under fire for its supposed victim-blaming crime prevention tips, which it has since updated.~snip~
There's just something wrong with the concept of condemning crime prevention by denouncing it as "victim blaming".
Saying that "men shouldn't rape" is a kind of a no shit Sherlock statement. But until saying that actually works then warning women how not to become victims seems like a pretty prudent thing to do.
I can't believe that this has become some kind of controversial thing.
Which brings up the fact that liberal objections to trying to warn women is more about an agenda than it is about them giving a damn about the victims.

Bill Cosby...Why Now?

Lot of news and print has been coming out over the last few days about Bill Cosby and some rape allegations that seem to have been around for decades.
I have no idea whether the allegations are true or not.
If he actually did what he's accused of then he should have been charged, prosecuted and jailed
But all these accusations have come out way past the statute of limitations for him to be charged with the offenses even if there was evidence still in existence to use against him.
Instead it's all decades in the past.

They asked a really good question over at Twitchy.

Why are rape charges treated differently for Clinton than for Cosby?

At this point in time the allegations of Billy "BJ" Clinton's rapes are unresolved and decades old also, so what is different about the two?

Bill Cosby went off the liberal plantation by pointing out the short comings of minorities when they blame "white folks" for their problems and then act like thugs and revel in a "welfare culture".

Bill Cosby Bashes Thugs and Welfare Moms: ‘We Can’t Blame White People
Bill Cosby’s rant against uneducated and apathetic Americans is forcing the country to reevaluate the lifestyles of lifetime welfare recipients. 
Cosby, who’s best known for his patriarchal role on “The Cosby Show,” is an outspoken Democrat. But over the past several years, Cosby has criticized President Obama for a range of “broken promises” and railed against entitled Americans for their “thuggish” behavior and incessant willingness to remain uneducated.
“I can’t even talk the way these people talk,” Cosby said. “Why you ain’t, where you is, who you be…Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads…You will never get any kind of job making a decent living,” he added. 
Cosby also censured welfare mothers for buying their kids $500 sneakers “when they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics,” so their children can learn to read. 
“People used to be ashamed” of having children with multiple men, Cosby noted, but “Today a woman has eight children with eight different ‘husbands’ or men, whatever you call them now.”
Cosby called on black Americans to “do a better job” in society and take responsibility for their own lives. “We have to start holding each other to a higher standard. We cannot blame the white people any longer.”~snip~
Statements like that completely undermine liberal/commie/democrats strategy of  division and grievance politics they have perfected over the years.
Billy "BJ"Clinton is still on  the liberal/commie/democrats division and grievance band wagon.
That's why he gets a pass.

If Bill Cosby did those things then he needs to be exposed and retire from public life.
But Billy "BJ" Clinton should be exposed and forced out too.
Or maybe liberal/commie/democrats are waiting until he's 77 years old to be shocked and outraged by his crimes.

You May be a Douche....

...if you're this selfish.
Fortunately she got a ball.

Dressing up the Lie

I think probably the most infuriating thing about the revelations from Johnathan Gruber that Obamacare was thrust down the "stupid voters" throat through deception and lies is the democrats who come out trying to defend it.
Informed consent is a big deal in the medical community where they have you sign a form stating that you understand a procedure and its possible consequences. The idea that these elitist charlatans didn't even give us a chance to be fully informed before ruining healthcare and then telling us it was for our own good is especially insulting.
