Why? Given similar circumstances and social environments, why did one Wes Moore flourish and the other self-destruct?

Why does no one every question the why when kids from seemingly stabled middle-classed and wealthy families go beserk and kill the hold family while one from a similar or same background goes on to become a Rhode's Scholar? Why do we as a society stll pigeon hole and catergorize individuals and groups silenty based on race, but then swear up and down it's not racial? Do we inadvertently set up some groups for failure and the prison pipeline by lumping them all into square, round, oblong holes?

Programs such as this crime reduction initiative aren't what they're touted to be. The black community would do itself a great good if it would pull together, creating its own delegation they could send into these cities or make contact with others in these cities where these type programs have been established. Where the crime initiative may work in NC although there's no real proof they too aren't having problems, it's not working well in say, Pennsylvania where a similar program was established, and young teen developed a blood clot in one of his testicles after a brutal patdown by a cop that led to him requiring immediate emerency surgery.

That may explain why protesters in the Ukraine were seen flying Confederate flags and using Swastika symbols, along with other Nazi propganda. The return of Nazism?

In 1930s or 1940s Russia a Koch's family member held massive oil rights in the country that Russia took away. The U.S. prosecuted Ilse Koch and sent her to prison for life, where she later committed suicide. Her husband was executed by German authority. Her oldest son also committed suicide after learning of his mother's involvement in atrocities committed at Buchenwald. The other son, born in prison, is the only known immediate family member that survived. Bringing Russia and the U.S. into immediate conflict with one another would be the ultimate and final revenge? Remember, it was a Koch who established the John Birch Society. The equivalent of today's tea party.

Is there any connections between today's Koch brothers and Isle Kochs of Nazi Germany? ASA Frau Koch of Buchenwald.

zableedofisterix said... Why this and not something on the Ukraine toon man? focus on the laughing stock of the world, B. Horses Ass Obozo? What Cartoonist of any worth ignores what's going on the Ukraine now? How about a cartoon with Obozo with his finger up his nose and Chuck Hagel picking fleas out of Obozos scalp while Putin laughs?

We don't wish you to bruise or harm that lil pea inside your head or cause anymore damage that's already been done, but try reading something of substance and value sometimes. Free yourself from right wingNUT exaggerations and lies then regurgitating them as if they're fact.

But this crisis (in the Ukraine) is Putin’s Waterloo (NOT Obama's), not ours/U.S.. Missing from this “analysis” about how Obama should respond is why Obama should respond. After all, the US has few strategic interests in the former Soviet Union and little ability to affect Russian decision-making. Our interests lie in a stable Europe,

Which brings us to perhaps the most bizarre element of watching the Crimean situation unfold through a US-centric lens: the iron-clad certainty of the pundit class that Putin is winning and Obama is losing. The exact opposite is true.

Putin has initiated a conflict that will, quite obviously, result in greater diplomatic and political isolation as well as the potential for economic sanction. He’s compounded his loss of a key ally in Kiev by further enflaming Ukrainian nationalism, and his provocations could have a cascading effect in Europe by pushing countries that rely on Russia’s natural gas exports to look elsewhere for their energy needs. Putin is the leader of a country with a weak military, an under-performing economy and a host of social, environmental and health-related challenges. Seizing the Crimea will only make the problems facing Russia that much greater.

For Obama and the US, sure, there might be less Russian help on Syria going forward – not that there was much to begin with – and it could perhaps affect negotiations on Iran. But those issues are manageable. Meanwhile, Twitter and the opinion pages and the Sunday shows and too many blog posts that could be informative have been filled with an over-the-top notion: that failure to respond to Russia’s action will weaken America’s credibility with its key allies. To which I would ask: where are they gonna go? If anything, America’s key European allies are likely to fold the quickest, because, you know, gas. And why would any US ally in the Far East want Obama wasting his time on the Crimea anyway?

zableedofisterix said... How is believing that homosexual acts are not normal a phobia?

Because those acts are neither homosexual than they are heterosexual. As many heterosexual engage in those type acts too. Even christian rightwingers.

But will you be so kind as to explain to everyone your obsession with what others engage in the privacy of their own lives? You appear to have some kind of perverted hidden desires you're either too afraid to act upon or you have already but kept'em in the closet.

TOES02800 said... Palin on Ukraine: I told you so

Yeah! Like the firestarter said about the building that burned down? "I told you so! That building was going to catch fire and burn." hmmmmmmmmmmm! When you go into countries lighting fires the expected outcome will be countries catching fire. That's not a prediction. It was planned that way.

ibshame said: Instead, the study found that castle doctrine increases total homicides, including murder and non-negligent homicide, by 7 to 9 percent, making a much larger 500 to 700 additional deaths per year."

And not to mention the accidental shootings, murder suicides and children picking up guns left unattended and either killing themselves, a sibling or some playmate. The other problem is, over time people tend to treat their guns like they do their car keys. They become forgetful and just lay their gun around anywhere for anyone, even a toddler, to come along and pick it up. Children accidentatally killing children. Parents accidentatally killing children, their own spouses mistaken for burglars. Most all those accidental killings took place in homes or inside vehicles of legal gun owners.

alprova said... jjmez wrote: "One things for sure, Martin was a helluva lot more innocent than that medicated, drunken, felon assailant who murdered him." Did you catch his CNN interview? He just fired up the assassins all over again. The man deserves a bullet through his enlarged, useless heart

Yes, I saw that interview, Alprova. He has the look of insanity about his eyes. He's also traveling the circuit on Latino TV giving interviews claiming he was the victim, and blaming everyone on up to and including President Obama for everything. The funny thing is, before he never had much of anything to do with the Latino community. He considered himself white and it was the cop on the scene who also originally marked "white" as the person who shot and killed Martin.

So now, Zimmerman is pulling out the Latino card to gain sympathy and support from the Latina community. interesting.

He said to also have a wealthy rightwing benefactor who allege to also be a powerful politician out of Texas that's been secretly keeping him afloat. Me thinks it's this rightwingnutjob conservative poltiician that's pushing these interviews on these Latino talk shows. The poltician is gearing up to gain control get as many Latino on the GOP board as possible by using Zimmerman's ethnicity, although until the Martin killing he never really identified with the Latino community according to many.
