Sniper's Tale Aside

court sides

(Mrs. Brown comments on "The Ferguson Sniper's Tale")

Oh, this is great!  Congrats on having it published! 

Which reminds me of a true story:   

When I was an intern at the DA's in NY during law school, I saw a rape trial.

This black guy was on trial.  He had a good lawyer, too (purchased with drug $ no doubt).  The accuser stated that the guy had raped her in a public park, in a sandbox, under a street light; and that several 'friends' came by during the rape, 'greeted them', and witnessed same (!?).

The defense was that this was a 'sex-for-drugs' case so the victim had consented; and that in any case the defendant had left his victim twice during the rape, once to urinate, then to defecate...

In closing arguments, the defense attorney argued that the victim accused the perp of '3-5' separate acts of rape, stating: 'Ladies and gentlemen of the jury:  We're all adults here.  The defendant is in his early 30's, and his accuser herself admits that the two of them were doing cocaine and drinking alcohol for at least 12 hours prior to the supposed 'rape'.  What man could perform sexually to that extent in such circumstances?'.

Whereupon the defendant rose in a fury and yelled-at his own attorney-'Ah'm a MAN, you know?  Ah can go ALL NIGHT!!  Ah can do 3-5; that ain't nothin' fo me!'.

He was convicted.

Russian gangster grave

After a fashion, it seems this Russian gangster did take a lot of it with him.  But I bet more people than not are happy he's worm food.

Why “Progressives” are just plain Communists.

When Progressives are in charge                            

Why “Progressives” Favor the State Over Society

The New York Times was abuzz March 5. The board of trustees of South Carolina’s Erskine College—a small, liberal arts college historically associated with the Presbyterian church—had issued a statement declaring that the school considered “all sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage [as] sinful and therefore ultimately destructive of the parties involved.” Not only did the trustees affirm what has been standard Christian belief and practice since … well, the beginning of Christianity, but they even stated:

“As a Christian academic community, and in light of our institutional mission, members of the Erskine community are expected to follow the teachings of scripture concerning matters of human sexuality and institutional decisions will be made in light of this position.”

How would the trustees’ statement, worried the Times, be perceived by some homosexual and lesbian members of the volleyball and lacrosse teams?

Enter the State. A religiously neutral state is regarded—at least by progressives—as a state that is axiologically agnostic: the state can have no moral values of its own. The state exists simply to facilitate the moral will of the individual.
What the Times did not worry about—indeed, did not even ask—was what vision of society underlay the self-styled “progressive” view?

Progressives generally perceive themselves as “socially conscious,” supposedly concerned with the “good of society” and the “commonweal.” The truth is: progressives really do not believe in society. They believe in the State.

Loud rhetoric about “social justice” and “concern for the community” notwithstanding, the progressives’ position has, at root, an impoverished view of society. That attenuated view of society, in turn, derives from their vision of moral values in the community, which one suspects is driven in large part by their commitments in the areas of life and sex.

But Rodge, this is so unfair.  What if I'm gay? 

So, what if you are?

But Rodge, are you saying that practicing homsexuals will be condemned to Hell?

I'm not God. If that's what you believe, then don't.  Sheesh.

Either way, Obama lost

Why MSNBC Is One of the Greatest Media Failures of All Time


RUSH: We have a ban on playing what happens on MSNBC, and I'm not yet prepared to lift that ban.  By the way, I should tell you that there is a lot of soul-searching going on over at NBC about what to do now with MSNBC.  They finally have figured out that the garbage and trash on that network -- and they admit, by the way, that it was a direct result of Fox, that they did their own version of Air America trying to take this program out.  Well, they tried to do their version of Fox News on MSNBC, thinking that would be the way to compete and beat Fox, 'cause they think there are many more liberals in America than there are conservatives, and if conservatives are watching Fox, we'll go get the liberals and we'll smoke 'em.

And just as the people running Air America had no idea what they were doing, they had no idea why conservative talk radio succeeds, the liberals at NBC have no idea why Fox succeeds.  They have no idea.  Even the liberals who work at Fox, like the analysts and the commentators -- and there are lots of 'em -- even they do not know why Fox succeeds.  They know Fox is number one, but they can't figure out why.  And the reason they can't figure it out -- I probably should not give up the ghost here.  The reason they can't figure it out is they do not understand connecting to an audience.  They literally have no concept of what that even means.

 Her [Zbigniew Brzezinski's daughter]basic point of view was, well, Obama's the president and he gets to do whatever he wants to do, and anybody standing in his way is undermining him. And Cruz explained, no, we're not undermining. We are using our legitimate constitutional role to be participants in this process. This cannot become law without us.
The whole idea of connecting with an audience to liberals is beneath them.  The audience is not worth connecting to; they're not that smart.  Otherwise they'd be here on the air, not watching us.  There's a general contempt for audiences, particularly the audience at Fox News, but even their own audience there's a contempt for them, and they have no idea how to connect. So they make the assumption Fox succeeds because it's conservative.  They have no idea why Fox succeeds.  That has maybe something to do with, I can't deny that, but that's not the sole reason, and it's not even the majority reason Fox succeeds.

But you'll never persuade a leftist of that.  Some of the highest paid, supposedly most qualified news broadcast executives in the world work at NBC, and they do not know how to compete with Fox News.  The first thing they do is look at it, they look at its success and then they ignore it.  They say, "Well, you know, it's a bunch of kooks and freaks. It's a sideshow and it really isn't representative of America, so we don't really need to worry about it."  And they live in a state of utter and total denial.

Then they realize they have to compete with it so they do what they think Fox does only on the left side, and that's just go wall to wall, total, extreme, radical leftist ideology, which is what they think Fox is on the right, and that's not what Fox is, but that's what they think it is.  And the evidence is clear, they don't have any audience.  MSNBC is one of the greatest failures of all time in media.

What I was gonna say is that Ted Cruz was on MSNBC, I think it was this morning, with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.  He just took Mika to school on this whole subject of the letter sent to the Iranian mullahs by 47 Republican senators.  And you know how he took her to school?  He simply explained the Constitution.  She didn't know what he was talking about.  He just simply explained to her the ways things become law in America.  And whenever he got to pointing out Congress either has to pass a law that gets sent to the president for signature or they have to ratify a treaty, which is what we'd be talking about here with this Iranian nuke deal, she couldn't get past the idea that the Senate has any right to participate.

What gives them the right to participate?  The president's negotiating this deal, if the Senate gets involved they're undermining him.  And Cruz said, "No, no, no."  She was lost.  [Continued]

A great analysis; but if Rush is right, and he is, then Liberals are so willfully ignorant, and thus stupid, as to condemn themselves, and us with them, into the endless folly we live with today.  I believe we have the right of self defense, so there's that, but it's against the law. What to do?

Starbucks Racebaiting

Liberal Racism                          

CEO Howard Schultz is encouraging his employees to bring up the hot-button issue — his latest foray into controversial topics.

Starbucks  SBUX 0.36%  CEO Howard Schultz has never shied away from involving his company in controversial debates, whether those debates are about same-sex marriage, or gun control, or U.S. government gridlock.

But the executive, who oversees a coffee empire with 4,700 U.S. stores, has now, having been taken in by the Administraion's politics of racial division,  plunged Starbucks into the  most polarizing political debate in the United States: race relations. *

Racial strife is the coin of the Democrat Party realm.

*Some necessary clarification added.

Is Someone Racist?
