Murphy’s Law advises us…
The City of Ferguson, MO, so recently destroyed by local savages and outside leftist agitators, is putting up a permanent memorial to homegrown thug Michael Brown, famous for robbing a store than attacking a police officer and getting shot in the process.
Yeah, he deserves a memorial plaque like Michael Jackson deserves to have a daycare center named after him. This is nothing but a blatant attempt by city officials to appease the Usual Suspects and if I were a taxpayer in Ferguson–assuming that there still are any there–I’d be incensed and make it my goal to vote each and every one of those cowards and spendthrifts right out of office.
The plaque will replace a garbage pile of empty liquor bottles and moldy stuffed animals that other losers have left behind as a “tribute” to this goon who, as far as I can tell, never did anything good for anyone other than possibly the local dope dealers.

How sad that a whole hyphenated community seeks to honor a street thug whose final act was to try to disarm and kill a law enforcement officer.
They are blind who will not see.
This, of course, doesn’t ignore the abuses of police nationwide.

So, the question is, how many of them are snitches and agents provocateurs?

Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton now says crime scene officers have made a new weapons count and come up with 318 “and still counting.” Swanton said he expected the count to continue to rise.
Of those weapons counted so far, 118 are handguns, one is an AK-47 assault-style rifle and 157 are knives. Swanton says weapons still uncounted are clubs, knives, brass knuckles, firearms and chains with padlocks attached.
Yes, 118 plus one plus 157 does not add up to 318.
who shot up attempted to shoot up wounded a cop and became DRT* had lived and worked in Arizona.
One reportedly owned a pizza shop. The other was on probation. Somehow, they obtained a firearm and went to Texas to attempt to decimate the free speech of folks making fun of Mohammad.
fascinated annoyed by folks who come here or choose to live here, but don’t understand basic tenets of the Republic, like Free Speech.
If you don’t want to see cartoons making fun of your religious founder, go live in Saudi Arabia. I’m certain the State there doesn’t allow such fall-de-ral!
I remember one of the clowns who flew the planes into the Twin Towers lived here (right across from my former workplace TMCCC!) and went to flight school here.
It not Arizona’s fault. We just happen to be a somewhat-free venue.
A paradox, for sure.

Christopher De La Viña,an Hispanic student wants to know.
As a child in public schools and now as a graduate student in history, I have learned one thing to be true about the United States: It is a White country. The founders were White, White men established its core principles and political system, and White men and women built the nation into what it is today.
Even before I became aware of the importance of race, I never thought this was “racist” or unfair; it was simply a fact. America has always been a White country and always should be. Why, then, … are White people giving away their country?More @ Elliot Lake News
I’ve written before in these pages with regard to so-called ‘hate crimes’. I feel essentially, that the motivation behind a grisly torture and murder are really unimportant.
Torture is torture, and murder is murder.
The reasons in the criminal’s mind are largely unimportant. The person still suffered and is still dead.
Getting inside a criminal’s head may be a good exercise for criminologists, but is a waste of time and money for legislatures.
And is the beginning of the thought police – political correctness run rampant.
“You are not allowed to hate somebody – that’s against the law!”
Wyoming just passed a hate crime law, pointing the finger 15 years later at the killer of Matthew Shepard. It has been widely reported that he was killed because he was gay.
Turned out, he was selling sex for drugs.
This doesn’t mean he deserved to be tortured and killed. Prosecuted maybe.
What was in the mind of his killer? Was he thinking about Jesus, or his last Big Mac?
I DON’T CARE
Certainly LGBT persons need to be treated with repect.
And most folks don’t deserve to be tortured and killed. Even if they are small-time criminals.
This story came across my radar yesterday. Having had and raised a child (until age 12, when she passed) any report of possible child abuse, or unwanted children just makes me sick.
So does government abuse of power.
On May 6th, 2015, Breckinridge Co. Sheriff’s officers came to their home, acting on an anonymous tip, and entered their property and home without a warrant and without probable cause. Nicole was at home with the two oldest children, while Joe was away with the others. When the officers left the home, they attempted to block the access road to the family property. Nicole and the two boys got in their car to leave the family property. The got only a short way down the road before the officers pulled Nicole over.
During this stop, sheriffs deputies took their two oldest boys from Nicole’s custody, providing her no justification or documentation to support their action. Nicole was able to contact Joe briefly by telephone, but only for a short period of time, because she needed to use her phone to record the events.
At that point, Nicole had been taken into custody for disorderly conduct (for not passively allowing the Sheriff to take her boys) and resisting arrest. Even though she is 5 months pregnant, she was slammed belly first into the cop car and bruised and scraped on both arms.
Obviously these people loved their children. But THE STATE decided it knew better how to raise them.

The Illinois State Police recently received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to add “unmanned aircraft” to its list of tools for the next two years. In a statement released to the Sun-Times Media Wire, the police department said that it was intentionally avoiding the word “drone” because “it carries the perception of pre-programmed or automatic flight patterns and random, indiscriminate collection of images and information.”
Because an unmanned aircraft is not a drone.
Guess it all depends on what the meaning of IS is…

Most of you regular readers know I HATE giving the government money. Doing so burns my libertarian soul.
I’m still driving Ol'(insert old-timey lady name here), my 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. Basically, because I’ve no other choice. And, it’s
registration involuntary ownership tax time again.
With the precursor of emissions testing.
(I always stop here to remember how the State legislator who forced through the emissions testing requirement soon left the legislature to work for the contractor who obtained the initial contract. No dirty politics here, no sir! :-))
I arrive just after the testing station opens and find I’m second in line. I’m a little worried, as my car sometimes stalls at idle, and sometimes the pollution control gimmick sticks in the engine and dashboard warning lights illuminate. Getting tested with dash lights on is a no-no! They’ve not come on in a few weeks, so I feel they are due.
I pull up when ordered, exit the vehicle, the guy does his testing, and she PASSES!
I re-enter the vehicle and crank her to start and leave, as instructed…
AND THERE IS A BACKFIRE! THE TESTING STATION (AND MY CAR INTERIOR) FILLS WITH SMOKE! But, as the car is running (and there is no obvious fire or dash warning lights), I drive away victorious!
And return home (after depositing appropriate gift funds to cover costs) and pay on-line to obtain my State license tags for yet another two years!
(To those of you who help me pay to keep my car registered and insured – I salute you!)
And to the State, who forces me to go through this nonsense every couple years to extort revenue from me – you already received my salute!
…or Send In The Clowns!
I cannot decide which meme is better.
There have been many blog postings of late, some of which even on this humble blog, writing of the growth in worldwide anti-Semitism, government-sponsored violence, religion-sponsored violence, massive surveillance, and wholesale Statism.
And there appears to be a modicum of support against such things.
There is a tendency to view such things as off-shore. Somewhere else. Another countries’ problem. And to turn a blind eye to our own versions of such things.
Until it’s too late.
Some folks write as if it IS too late. That civil upheaval is inevitable. Others clamor for constitutional conventions. As though people who control such things can keep the outcome constitutional.
And this new world order of constitution will certainly
include or delete a second amendment.
Depending on the flavor of the new constitution’s founding fathers.
What to do, what to do.
Sit on our hands and whine? Join the convention(s)? Join the revolt?
DON’T BOTHER – THEY’RE HERE!
