Ferguson Missouri: A Tragedy in the American Heartland

I'm not going to pretend I understand what's going on in Ferguson Missouri or that I've got a handle on what took place like the corporate media's talking heads are doing. Even the local authorities don't seem to have all the facts yet, or if they do, they're keeping them close to their Kevlar vests. Before August 8th, all I knew about Ferguson Missouri was that it was the hometown of aviation great and WWII hero, Jimmie Doolittle.

But Thom,

And there is no difference in money? Money is money? Hmmm. Why is it I can get stuff at half the price I'd pay with my mastercard if I just use paypal instead? How come it is UK and Holland won't accept my mastercard? How come inter-urban tokens fell into disuse after they ripped up the tracks? How come the bank wouldn't take wampum? It was perfectly good and respectable money?? Have a nice week. Dumbass.

Ferguson: is Detroit next? What about other African-American communities?

MajoritySuperPac misleading voters to raise money: Karl Rove is anything but an enemy of most DC Democrats.

Behind the scenes in Washington it is all one big bipartisan conga line of business deals and wealth making endeavors that pays absolutely no heed to whether or not you’re a republican or democrat. Rove goes to Democratic fundraiser’s and glitterati events and Democrats – like Mark Pokedcan (D-WI) -go to republican fund raisers. Any animosity between members of the different parties is largely fiction intended to sell tickets and sensationalize the subject fakers championing of the respective evil, heinous, dastardly, enemy of their constituents.

Vote November and Always!

Pauline's take.

I don't often offer information.

Thom said he did not know then the cops turmed military. Two major events, Dirty Harry, and the TV show SWAT.

THE USPS. "CCA"

Hello, I am wondering how many others are aware of the CAREER CARRIER ASSISTANT job title that the USPS IS NOW HIRING..THE CCA. My adult daughter applied, took the test, was told she scored high for hiring on a part-time basis. After reading my searches as well as my daughter's searches online, this CCA "part-time position" and it's abuses Is not just in the state of Washington. Part -time (?) is 60 hrs. a week. NO days off. Must check at end of shift as to when you come in the next day.

Dividing the Ukraine into West and East.

Since the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, the U.S. and its NATO partners have been on a relentless march toward U.S. hegemony as the sole superpower in the world. George H.W. Bush (former head of the CIA) as President stated that there is now a chance to create a “New World Order,” and that they would be successful.

Again Obama turns a Deaf Ear to the People: 650,000 Comments call on Obama to ban Fracking on Public Lands to no avail.

Ok, so, does Oblah blah understand statistics? No, I don’t mean the fudgy economic kind he tosses around about the fictitious economy, I mean the rudimentary text book things like sampling, etc.

Symbols of Resistance

I watched a documentary on LINKTV called “How to Start a Revolution.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N1OhgsI1YU

It used examples of revolutions seeking a more democratic government in places like Serbia and Eastern Europe, where the people rose up and through non-violence were able to unite and establish change.

Republicans Hate both Civil Rights and the Disabled

The federal government is often the last bulwark against discrimination. Companies are sued for employment discrimination, often by the U.S.

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
