One more Ferguson comment. So the city is 2/3 black but most officials are white. We've heard that over and over. What we haven't heard is that only 6% of the blacks vote in municipal elections. That might explain it. But that should not be blamed on whites or status quo or oppression or prejudice or anything like that--it's on the 94% of the blacks.

Back to Ferguson. I dunno Watchdog, there really doesn't seem to be any valid reason for the body laying there that long. And not shielded from view, either. I don't think there was any forensic reason for it. I think it was just a bad blunder.

Of course Obama wants higher wages. It means higher taxes. He would be happy happy. Those vacations and golf outings are expensive! LOL

"Did the body in Ferguson really lay in the street for 4 hours?"

If it did there was a reason. And probably a good explanation to go with it. Considering it was a crime scene. Everybody involved had to cross their T's and dot their I's. So with all that commotion going on. Not the least bit surprised if it did. Ferguson cops were not allowed to touch that crime scene. MHP did their thing. Another agency did their thing. The FBI did their thing.

4 hours. That was bad at all.

Sorry, back to Labor Day. Obama said today, "America deserves a raise." But he also said the economy and workers are better off now than when he took office. So, I dunno, maybe then we don't need a raise.

While I think the protestors have been out of line and in this case I believe the cops words over the co-thief's word, if I were black and in a couple months time there was the choke hold death, the Ferguson death and the OH Walmart death, I would probably feel the same way some of those protestors do.

Did the body in Ferguson really lay in the street for 4 hours? In the summer? If so, that seems inexcusable and helped set the stage for later confrontations. Regardless of whether or not the shooting was righteous, some of the police responses were out of whack. Not that I think it excuses the destruction and thievery of some protesters, but again, it certainly didn't help the situation.

I'm going to update the question...

Today is Labor Day and protestors plan to stop traffic in St. Louis. Will someone get shot as a result?

I'm sure my friend Beal would have like that when he got "Free Brid" tattooed on his arm in England.

"The leftist elite will not be able to fully establish their utopian communist oligarchy until there is a total crash of the current system. "

It will be an on-steroids time of the leftist elite "Live as I say, not as I do". Take AlGore for a prime example.

"THIS IS WRONG."

I agree but I'm afraid this kind of thinking is going to become more pronounced in the on-going liberal dumbing down process. The left's commentary on Ferguson spoke volumes about their agenda to undermine basic law and order in this country. They are essentially promoting an upset to the system (they call it "change") that is borderline anarchy. The leftist elite will not be able to fully establish their utopian communist oligarchy until there is a total crash of the current system.

Still picturing the "ice breaker" game being played in an old folks home in a few decades--guess the tats.

But man, stuff that fades over time--you'd make a bundle.

"And if someone wants to work, maybe they should dress nicely for an interview, use proper English and at least the down the tats and piercings."

That said it all!!!

That is what should be tough at home.

I'm gonna repeat--OH asked that 16 counties be exempt from the food stamps work requirement because unemployment so high in those counties. They happen to be mainly white counties.

"But now the state is the target of a civil rights complaint by several groups claiming the waivers discriminated against racial minorities. They point out that minorities are 37 percent of Ohio's population, while the waiver counties are composed of just 6 percent minorities."

The complaint asks that the waivers be extended to all 88 counties--that would mean that food stamp applicants in areas where it is easier to find jobs still would not be required to comply with the work mandate.

THIS IS WRONG.

Wow. I looked at 6, no comments. Been working since then--did I miss a lot.

But Bug is correct about drug tests--about 50% fail.

BUT, everyone SHOULD take that low paying job--future employees want to see someone who is dependable. We've hired a few that came from Burger King, etc. Some that lost a job when something else closed. But just plain not working?--nope. Show me your work ethic even at a low paying job. We've had people hired away from us for better jobs/pay, who weren't considered before they were working for us. Usually you need to have a job to get a job.

There should be a firm cut-off time for those on welfare.

"The point again all that 100 million are not dead beats ."

No, just all of those with two arms, two legs, not mentally disabled.

The 100 million you mentioned does not include workers that are drawing unemployment.

"Living in the projects and the first $150 they come up with goes to buy a pair of tennis shoes....that's completely irresponsible."

Not to mention the small riots that occur when people try to get their hands on a new release.
