So what Fairmon? Everyone with a brain knows that a President is not an island of his own. No President has ever walked into the Oval Office knowing what to do.
Some do start off with a clue and some management experience. Some do select knowledgeable people with good experience for important and influential positions. His ineptness is not a result of his race.
alprova said....I truly want to move the hell away from this place because of the way people are. Over the past two weeks, I have been personally ridiculed because I did not feel that Michael Brown deserved to die.
You will likely in time have the same opinion of the people in any place you go.
There is a difference in thinking he deserved to die, obviously he did not, and not feeling any remorse because he was a thief and a bully.
I've got to laugh at people who claim that Valerie Jarrett is the "real President."
She replaced Rob Emanuel who resigned to become mayor of Chicago.
She recruited and hired Michelle Obama in her former job. It would be time well spent researching her history and ideology. In her role she does have a lot of influence on the president.
Every generation in history had those among them that thought they could control the weather and the climate in total but that has never been accomplished and will not be. However, those efforts to do so could be helpful in many other ways but the climate will keep cycling as it has in the past and may even play a role, along with disease, in population control. Any species that proliferates too much will have something happen often by their own doing to reduce the number. Humans are rushing toward a level where that is likely to happen in a number of ways.
He is a kid. He is not a thief he was "only shop lifting". That seems to be the thinking of some posting here.
It is a good thing hanging is not allowed with the obvious rush to judgment going on there would have been a hanging already. It's like a mob saying there is no need to wait on an investigation, all the facts it may cause us to miss the chance to see a hanging.
"The truth will set you free" if you can accept the truth when it becomes known. What is the truth in this case? I don't know but neither does anyone else posting on this board know the whole story at this point.
ibshame....your 1:37 a.m. post is pretty lame. He did bomb ISIS which was not only for the Foley family but for all Americans. He sent Eric Holder to Ferguson to investigate for all Americans. The POTUS typically only attends or sends a representative to the funeral of other heads of state for good reason. He can't attend or send a representative to every funeral where there is an alleged wrongful death. It appears to be a divisive racially motivated act. His sending Holder to investigate to determine if there was a civil rights violation and his comments urging people to not be destructive etc. were appropriate in a high profile case. His staff's decision to send a representative, which he probably didn't know about in advance, doesn't appear to be a smart move.
You both act as if it was the first time the poor innocent "little boy" strayed from the straight and narrow."
alprova said.....The boy had absolutely no prior record.
I see. He was not and probably would not have had a record of the theft and bullying incident. Your comment says you are among the it is ok as long as I don't get caught. It is not likely the bully for the first time thought he would bully and scare someone and steal their merchandise. BS! One thing for sure, he will not be a repeat offender.
ki fruit said....Well, fairy, if you're going to ask that question of Michael Brown's parents you should do the of Wilson's. Let see, Wilson's mom was convicted of stealing and forgery in 2001 specifically from a neighbor who considered Wilson's mom a friend. She stole the neighbor's identity, opened credit cards in the neighbors name. Got access to the neighbor's bank account.
What is the point? Do you mean he is a product of the same type deficiencies that likely produced the bullying thief that he killed? Does that change the answer to the questions? Had you rather treat the disease or just keep dealing with the symptoms?
More welfare and dependency should give some temporary relief. Don't get your drawers in a wad that is not a racial comment since more whites are gaming the system than any race. There are a lot of white thieves and bullies also and my sympathy would be just as little for them if they met a similar ending.
Everybody is more than willing to attack the cop and at this point in time it may be he deserves it. Where is all the emotion aver the failures leading to the theft, bullying and stupidity of both the cop and dead thief and bully?
What role did the parents play and what did they do or not do that allowed this kid to behave so irresponsibly? What deficits in the weak education system contributed? What system allows kids to grow up without knowing how to work and be responsible then fails to assure they have an opportunity to do so? What is being done to provide good role models instead of some weird filthy talking and criminal advocating rapper?
The gap in kids that do learn and act responsibly and those that drop out, fail to utilize the opportunity for an education and make bad decisions is similar to the numbers in the wealthy and those at or below the poverty level. It is not limited to any race, whites have an equal percent that are future dependents and criminals.
alprova said...Federal charges are completely separate from those which will or will not be filed in St. Louis County.
Holder cannot try the officer for murder or any lesser crime related to the shooting. Those are state charges. Civil Rights violations are as far as the Justice Department can go.
I understand all that but as the DA knowing a parallel federal investigation was being conducted and the information shared would it not be a wise move to have the benefit of any additional facts before any decision on what charges to file? Why hurry, the cop is not going any where but to jail if guilty.
I think Wilson knew the risk of being a cop and if he lost it and did something stupid he will rightly suffer the consequences. It may not be and appears not to be a justified shooting. But, I do
seriously wonder why you and ki really give a rip that a thief and bully met an untimely end. You both act as if it was the first time the poor innocent "little boy" strayed from the straight and narrow. If the cop irrationally over reacted or decided to go out that evening and kill a black person then imprison him for life or execute him but don't expect me to blubber about the dead bullying thief that was a good candidate as a future criminal taking things of more value than a $40 box of cigars.
