I'm thankful for the huge butt kicking the Dems received in the mid-terms.
It may be accurate to say I am thankful for the gift from the democrats in the mid-terms. Use the gift wisely or they can just as easily take it back. It may be worth noticing the democrats are failing to recognize or acknowledge they were kicked. Schumer in New York may be an exception but he may regret breaking rank when he needs them.
Be thankful for grid lock. It is better than letting the mental patients run the institution. Keep the president plenty of pens to void checks with and keep the safe locked so he can't write checks.
The economy has improved albeit slowly with gridlock, why change?
A day for being thankful for all that is good and right which is much more than the negative we spend 364 days complaining and disagreeing about.
Those burned out and looted business owners certainly got what they deserved didn't they? It is just a matter of finding out why those racist business owners are guilty and deserve to lose their business and means of livlihood.
Some witnesses not to be willing to appear and testify but perhaps it is time to conduct grand jury hearings on national TV and let people vote on line whether there is probable cause or not. It works on American Idol and other TV talent contest.
Probable cause does not equal guilty and no probable cause does not equal innocent. The grand jury concluded the physical evidence and eye witness testimony validated by the physical evidence was not sufficient to bring charges for any of the possible criminal charges. The DOJ concurrent investigation should reveal if the grand jury acted improperly.
The media seeks the controversial that attracts readers and viewers. Those news bites and headlines do not cover the entire hearing details. People react to those news journalist supporting their personal opinion and without reviewing the transcripts in detail assume they know the facts and react accordingly.
ki said...It's due time to start investigating these grand jurors."
Do you know how grand juries are selected? Are you sure you know what their role is? Do you know the process? Have you ever served on a grand jury?
Why don't you get all the testimony in the Brown case and investigate the grand jury that reached a conclusion you don't agree with. They were already on the grand jury and doing their work when this event caused them to be forced to serve longer than originally planned. What will you have to say if Holder reaches the same conclusion?
Why do you condone punishing those burned and looted business owners that serve the Ferguson community? The root cause needs to be addressed but Sharpton, Jackson and other opportunist never seem to get around to that. Parenting, education and jobs. It is unfortunate the education system has not assured kids actually learn but with minimum effort they do get a diploma.
The Sherriff in Ferguson gave the best and most insightful interview of any I have seen. The amount of false information and the number of unreliable witnesses has fanned the flames and gave those so inclined a reason and opportunity to burn and loot. The majority of those involved are not typical citizens of Ferguson.
Actually it's people like me who care. Who speak up and out when we see the nation heading down a tragic path once again.
You may want to have your vision checked. Did I err concluding you were an Obama groupie, thinking he was brilliant?
I went back and checked several of my post for anything that would sound angry or bitter. Perhaps you can share with me how you made that analysis?
I would appreciate being educated regarding the additional social security issues that will result in a fund deficit around 2013.
Hello, I quoted the head of social security verbatim from when he was interviewed regarded current concerns. Following that post you said I was bitter and angry. I assure you I really couldn't care less what happens with social security or any other government crap unless they start confiscating more than already being taken.
BTW...Obama is the worst president since Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson. He is pitifully incompetent, he is a nervous wreck, he may not be able to keep it together two more years.
All the facts? are available, fair?
The transcripts of witness interviews and other facts including physical evidence were released last night. You are still saying things the evidence and witnesses did not support. You insist the store incident had absolutely nothing to do with what transpired between Wilson and Brown.
The evidence revealed Wilson did know about the store incident and had a description of a black man wearing an orange shirt, yellow socks and a ball cap. He had called for back up before confronting him. The incident is unfortunate and should never happen but Brown created the situation leading to his death. Will you disagree if the DOJ reaches the same conclusion?
You're so bitter and angry about things that aren't worth being bitter and angry about.
Bitter and angry? Do you conclude that because I don't agree with your wacky views on issues? Actually I am very happy and content.
I grew up dirt poor and have worked as many as three jobs at one time and made many sacrifices to achieve a level of success where I am very comfortable. I contribute liberally to charities and to individuals needing a hand up, not a hand out. I am not angry or bitter about it but I do resent a larger controlling government that confiscates from some and redistributes to others. Your opinions often show limited knowledge of an issue but in your mind you are more informed than anyone. Social security is one good example with your contention that the "fund" has been borrowed or there would be no issue with future under funding. You have what appears to be an unhealthy loyalty to one party and harsh criticism of the other when neither is acting in the best interest of the country.
I have not worked for a non-profit but have had to deal with them.
Most have no concept or concern about cost or competition. Many worry more about justifying increased funding and growing in size.
All the facts the Ferguson grand jury reviewed are available to the public. It is easier to jump to a conclusion and an emotional decision than to obtain and review them.
The protestors burn and loot businesses of their fellow citizens to protest against the police? Who destroys their neighborhood if something upsets them?
The news media is not done milking this tragedy and will keep it hot as long as possible.

And yes! fairyM. You're right! I have worked for the federal government. Never a nonprofit though.
That has to be the greatest oxymoron ever. Which department of the federal government department is a "for profit" operation accountable for revenue above the cost of operations?

Oh, fairM, fairrrM, fairrrrrrrrrrM! What else were you doing but attempting to place blame by using cherry-picked facts?
I quoted the head of social security, do you think he cherry picked the facts? What facts would you add other than that the system will have to be tweaked to avoid the approximately 2033 debacle? I think most people know the disabled, surviving spouses and kids under 18 have been added over time. What do you not understand about the problem of only 2.1 working for each drawing which includes the impact of the boomers retiring? The impact of increased longevity? these are the major impact items there are many more but the tweaking is best done sooner than later. One ignored item is the CPI increase and the resulting social security increases with average wages staying flat or going down for years.
Not what you way you want it to be therefore you will conclude it ain't so.....No doubt if you work it is for a non-profit operation and most likely a government position.
