Almost everything Obama does is politically motivated and is intended to advance his political power and his socialist/communist agenda. So he is not likely to speak out much or attempt to do much about atrocities like this. The muslim leaders who have power in the muslim countries of the middle east ought to be condemning murder in the name of the religion they say is a religion of peace, and criminals such as committed this should be brought to justice. There is no such thing as a holy war nor a murder authorized by God. This was learned by most of the West hundreds of years ago, but it has unfortunately not yet been learned by many in the middle east. Than theocracies are terrible forms of government which stifle freedom and prosperity was also learned by the West long ago, but still had not been grasped by much of the middle east.
Biel Contrary to your false assertion, the House has done a great deal. It has passed in the neighborhood of 376 bills which Harry Reid has refused to take up and consider in the Senate. If there is a do nothing element to the Congress it is Harry Reid's Senate.
robcelot: The Obama gang has not been dragged anywhere. It was necessary for him and them to lie to America about how people could keep their health plans if they liked them. He had to talk about change and not about making us a socialist command control country to get the gullible and the handout crowd to vote for him. He is having to flout our immigration laws to encourage and support the illegal invaders. He had to lie about Benghazi to cover his gun running. Most Americans are much more conservative than the gang currently damaging this country and its freedom and prosperity. But when a gang like the socialist democrats has the Presidency and the Senate and is assisted by the liars of Main Stream media it can effectively thwart the will of the people to a considerable extent.
Lonesome: The collectivists ( socialist democrats) always seek to divide and conquer , by taking up the cause of almost every special interest group, from those who want to marry people of the same sex, to those who want to speak and read and be taught in Arabic in our public schools, to those who want to illegally invade our country to get benefits, to those who want to be supported without being required to work, to those who want to kill their unborn babies, and on and on. Almost never do the socialist democrats look to the interest of the people as a whole when deciding on a policy.
Biel: What a silly lie you spout. I realize you do not want to tell the truth, but even you should be able to come up with more convincing lies than this. But on a more serious note, the leftist agitators and the people of the community where this occurred represent a significant level of frustration, probably much of it arising from the record levels of unemployment our socialist/communist President and his command/control policies have brought about. And most of them are to ignorant to realize that by supporting such a socialist, with the misguided policy of attacking our major businesses and trying to control and hamper them, they are actually contributing to their own misery. Economic freedom, not government control is what creates prosperity and jobs. Work , study, honesty, and a desire to have his employer succeed are what makes for a good employee who gets raises and promotions, whereas resentment and a fear of doing too much to help the business are what makes for the employee who is first to go when the business has to cut back But what I hear coming from most of the black leaders is an exaltation of victimhood and resentment, with revenge and a get even attitude being encouraged.
We should not forget that this is being done with the support of our socialist/communist President , who may well be a muslim himself and who has sent arms and money to jihadists who hate us. Let us hope that the schools involved go to court over this. And let us remember that although Obama is the gang leader, the members of the gang are the socialist democrats, and no matter how much they may claim to be conservative or to disapprove of what Obama and his henchmen do, if they are elected to national office like the Senate or the House they will have to go along with the gang leader to advance themselves, and they will.
No, bielstreet, the Klan, that organization that the democrats founded, does not have a spell over America's law enforcement community.
The socialist left is beginning to treat Ferguson as they treat the fraud of man caused global warming. What is appearing more and more to be a fraudulent distortion of the truth in Ferguson must be defended just as the fraud of man caused global warming must be defended. The idea that the cop wantonly killed Brown for racial reasons is such a useful one to them that, no matter how much it is discredited, they find it very hard to give up. Truth means nothing to many of these leftist commander controller types. What counts is what will advance their agenda. To their deluded minds, the end justifies the means and the constitution is a pesky document that should be disregarded if it stands in their way.
Racism is a very important tool of the left, so it is no surprise to see that many of the looters come from out of Missouri. The leftist agitators know who to recruit and how to finance and send them. Just as they know how to cross state lines to cast illegal votes.
There is a constant effort on the part of socialists/commnists such as the Obama gang and those who support them, to make it seem that freedom loving conservatives are unbalanced nuts who want to do violence to those who have different views. But history shows that the great killers have been those of the socialist/communist variety, from the corrporative socialists such as Hitler and Mussolini on through the Russians socialists, of whom Stalin is the prime example, and the Chinese communists socialists like Mae and that stellar example from North Korea, Kim Il Jong, and lesser lights like Pol Pot of the killing fields. It has been estimated that these socialists have killed over 100 million people in the last century, many millions of them being their own people. Obviously terrorism is terrible, although sometimes those who have practiced it, as did Bill Ayers, become the friends and confidants of a socialist/communist President.
Elk: What probably happened is that the Obama gang got something on Roberts, and being morally #$%$ as they are, used it to get him to render his intellectually dishonest decision.
The use of the IRS to attack conservative organizations is far more than political noise. The betrayal of our men at Benghazi is more than political noise. The encouragement of illegal invaders and the refusal (in fact, not in words) to protect our borders is more than political noise, as if the prevention of states protecting their own borders. These are despotic acts commited by one, who in my opinion, is a dedicated socialist/communist and who wants to get even with America for what he mistakenly thinks it did to the parts of the world from which his communist father came as well as to the rest of the undeveloped world.
Lonesome: But saving wildlife is not what the supporters of the fraud of man caused global warming are about. Saving wildlife is only a mantra to fool the more gullible of the public. The real goal is control of almost all aspects of everyone's life, and the looting of the developed nations in favor if the authoritarian rulers of most of the undeveloped world.
ravage: To say the President is relatively scandal free is like saying that Al Capone was not guilty of the crimes committed by his gang.
Lonesome: To me it seems that the correct term for socialists/communists who seek a command/control economy is moral #$%$. They always claim that they are paragons of virtue who will bring peace, unity, and social justice (a meaningless term), but as history has shown over and over again, they bring scarcity and misery, divisiveness, and often bring war, death and destruction, since their command economies cannot produce as can free ones, and so often they are driven to war to steal something for their supporters and remain in power. The same sprry story has been repeated in slightly different form in too many countries for them to be ignorant of the likely results of their policies but they seem unable to learn.
Elk: The leftists, like you, who use charges of "racism" as a tool to advance their socialist agenda are doing a disservice to the very people they proclaim they want to help. I realize that for many of leftists it is not important whether they hurt the people they claim to be trying to help, because their true goal is their agenda and their own power, not the freedom or prosperity of those they see as political "clients". Hopefully we will learn the truth of this matter.
I am still hopeful that, despite the many lies "eyewitnesses" have spouted out that we will come to know the truth of what happened. Now that the autopsy is out, we know that Brown was not shot in the back, despite eyewitness" accounts that he was. From the surveillance video we know that Brown was very large and powerful and probably a strong arm robber. If that video did not exist we would not have learned this from the "eyewitnesses" that have so far made public statements. From the audio that was taped by someone after the shooting we learn from a man's voice accidentally picked up that Brown was apparently running toward the police when he was shot. There is a version out, allegedly giving the officer's account, wherein it is stated that Brown fit the description of the strong arm robber, that Brown tried to prevent the officer from getting out the car, then pushed him into it and that Johnson tried to get the officer's gun and that it went off in the car. And further that Brown, after the officer got out of the car, bumrushed the officer, who then shot him. If that version is correct , then it appears to me the officer was certainly justified in shooting him in self defense. How many people would bet their lives that they could win a wrestling match for the gun with Brown (6 ft 4", 292 lbs)? But there is still more evidence to be revealed. They only thing we know for sure now is that a number of people on the scene were so full of rage and hatred that they were willing to fabricate stories about how the shooting happened.
ural : The video tape showing what certainly appears to be a robbery exists. The cop can be thankful for that. And, since Brown was probably a robber resisting arrest, it is very unlikely that the version you give above is true. Also, your assertions about white men being more angry than blacks or Hispanics is also false, as is your veiled assertion that people who point out that Brown had a lot of anger are racists. You have just spouted the standard liberal accusation of racism, which they use against any views or commonsense that opposes their agenda.
ace: You are so correct on this. The racists leftists could not wait for the facts to be developed before they began playing the race card, doing their best to stir up hatred and rage along racial lines. And the police were wise not to release the officer's name, since he might well have been attacked by some racists hot head. Now that it appears that the gentle giant was not so gentle, and was probably a strong arm robber, the leftists suddenly want the evidence to be hidden. Thank goodness for the surveillance video for without it we would still be haring the lies from Brown's likely accomplice about what happened.
ural: Of course Brown being a strong arm robber (not just thief, but robber, in case you know the difference) does not justify shooting him. At the moment we do not know if the shooting was justified, but we do know that in all likelihood the man with him was an accomplice who has already lied about the incident. However, if the large and powerful ( 6ft 4" and 292 lbs) Brown attempted to get the officer's gun or attacked the officer, then I would say the shooting was in self defense and justified. As the Detective Furman put in when talking about such situations in connection with Martin, if I am charged by an unarmed man I am going to shoot him because I am not willing to bet my life that I can win the fight and keep my gun. How many men, do you think, would be willing to bet their life they could win a wrestling contest with Michael Brown? And yes, although you liberals refuse to acknowledge it, and in fact often do your best to fan the flames, there is a lot of anger out there in many black men, and it has caused many tragedies. Two wrongs never make a right, and wisest advice ever given to those who feel wronged, is to forgive the wrongdoer. Protect yourself against him ,yes , and try to legally end the wrongdoing, yes, but forgive and let go of anger.
