Dead Police Officers in Baton Rouge: Anglo Cognitive Dissonance (ACD) VI and A Message to Thom Hartmann

This morning three, Baton Rouge police officers were shot dead; several others wounded. This comes on the heels of the shooting/murder of five other police officers in Dallas a week ago.

It is unclear the details, and/or, circumstances surrounding the shootings as the situation is still fluid and developing.

Baton Rouge is where a 37 year old father, unarmed Black man, was gunned down by Baton Rouge police. His name was Alton Sterling.

Suggested Road Sign

I have a sign posted on my little paved country road in Monroe County Ohio that reads:

A very bad year to be Black.

I have been (and still am) a total Bernie booster. I have loved Brunch With Bernie for about 5 years, ever since i discovered streaming radio. I have rarely called in or posted because Thom is so right (and has such a great array of regular guests), and usually a step or three ahead of me.
One thing I am absolutely sure: Mr. Drumph must NOT appoint another Bad Tony Scalia to the Extreme Court.

My First Donation to Jill Stein: $27

Made my first donation today. It's not about a candidate, it's about the movement away from politics as usual with delusional candidates who think they do not need grassroots support to get meaningful legislation passed. If Hillary wins, I will pray for her to try to do some of the things she has been pressured into saying she wants to do. If Trump gets in it is the anemic, complicit Democratic Party's fault, not mine. But it will not be the end of the world.

Gingrich calls for monitoring mosques

During the interview on Thursday, Hannity asked Gingrich how "you possibly ascertain whether or not that person really wants assimilation, really wants a new life, or whether or not they want to expand that caliphate, which is what we're at w
