As many of you know I have on many occasions made accusations that MSNBC was the worst form of journalism on the planet, however this opinion did not come without due process, their consecutive bottom of the barrel ratings combined with commentators who referred to conservative female pundits as sluts and whores along with being caught red handed editing the George Zimmerman 911 call tapes to inject an artificial racist overtone helped me arrive at that opinion.

To witness the death of an 18 year old young man, is a trauma to the human psyche, it does not matter who is the cause, cop or Michael, either to blame, it can be no less than a most serious insult to the collective minds of us all.

The text is transcribed from the 1705 edition of The Grumbling Hive. A few short passages that are illegible in that edition are supplied from The Fable of the Bees (London, 1714).
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time,…Continue
On Saturday I visited Indian Echo Caverns, one of Pennsylvania's many caves which are open to the public. I can barely remember visiting a cave when I was a boy. I remember that we bought Indian blankets and an Indian drum which we had for a long time. I'm not sure if this was that cave since there is also an Indian Caverns in Pennsylvania. Indian Echo Caverns is located between Harrisburg and Hershey. It took me two hours to drive down…Continue
Tougher and smarter policing tactics and a jump in arrest rates helped lower the number of murders in New York City by 73% during the 1990s. This extended the lives of young black men in particular. More than half of America’s murder victims are black, though blacks make up just 13% of the population.…

Since the placement of Eric Holder as the attorney general we have seen a clear and present bias form the department of justice when it comes to investigations and prosecution based clearly on race, we all remember the black panthers standing in front of voter poles with billy clubs during the 2008 election while Holder claimed there was no reason to investigate, while on the other hand he has moved forward on investigating the police involved in the Trayvon Martin case as well as other…Continue
• It is a bad idea to say that discrimination is wrong only because the traits of all people are indistinguishable.
• It is a bad idea to say that violence and exploitation are wrong only because people are not naturally inclined to them.

I have had the talk several times with my son. He is still fairly young, but we talk about why you need to respect the social hierarchy, and particularly the authority of the police. Basically, it comes down to this... people in positions of authority may not always be right, they may not always be polite, and they may not always respect your autonomy, but there is very little to be gained from engaging someone in authority directly. Most of the time, it is in your best interest to comply…Continue
Just another thug terrorizing the hood, the same idiots protesting for justice would not have even been willing to talk to police if this had been a black on black shooting
