Is there anything that is more talked about and less done about than ethics?? Isn't it a conflict of interest for a governing body to decide its own ethics?? Maybe we should approach ethics from the positive and not the negative - that is rather than saying what you won't do - tell us what you are going to do.

I wish (yeah if wishes were ponies, I'd have lots of fertilizer), when a reporter announces these so-called improvements, he/she would also announce the number of Illinois deserters - how many employed or not have moved out of the state of IL. The number of individuals who have simply given up on filing for unemployment. The increase of the number of individuals who are now on Medicaid. Maybe…

Ditto, I can't argue with anything you said. The frustrating part is the head in the sand thinking of many American's who choose to ignore or admit that Obama and the current crop of democrats and their policies are destroying America. It's a tough fight when Obama and democrats just outright lie and the media never calls them out on their lies. And to top that off we have a timid cowardly…

Strawman: Eric Holder To The Rescue.....

7 months, 1 week ago by Strawman

 

 

 

As the racial tension continues to mount in nearby Ferguson, Missouri, we, the normal taxpayers of the Midwest, are graced with a visit from one of the administration’s shiny ones---Eric Holder.  The current Attorney General of these United States will be making his way to St. Louis aboard “Getting Even With Whitey 2” (the president has #1) and with his arrival the clouds will part and the sun will shine in areas it has yet to shine.  Things will change with Eric Holder in Ferguson, Missouri.  You just wait!!

Mr. Holder provides some insight on his trip in a letter published in St. Louis Today.  As you can see for yourself, it’s beautifully written and contains all the right things those of all colors and creeds can latch onto.  It all sounds good (or in this case “looks good”) until you check the source of the rhetoric.

Holder, second only to Al Sharpton and the Reverend Jackson, is, without question, a person with racist tendencies.  He’s openly looked the other way on cases pertaining to race (2008 Voter Intimidation) has been held in contempt of Congress, filed suit against the State of Arizona (Immigration) and withheld information on “Fast and Furious”, just to name a few of his accomplishments during the last six years.

However, getting to the bottom of the Michael Brown tragedy in Ferguson just might be the feather Holder has been looking to place in his official Black Panther beret.  Think of if, Holder, overcoming 2 autopsies and testimony from a number of witnesses who saw the events of August 9th---all of which, so far—indicate Mr. Brown was NOT shot in the back (as it continues to be reported), DID have drugs in his system at the time and WAS advancing towards the officer in question when he was shot.  Making the supreme Federal effort to dig deep and leave no stone unturned- over 40 members of the FBI and members of the Department of Justice have been in Ferguson since early this week “investigating” the issue at hand. Translated: they’re going to find something—one way or another.   

But now the stage is set for Holder to save Black America, to right the wrongs and uphold the law, while coming to rescue of the Brown family and those who have been marching in the streets in protest.  I can see it now; Holder, days later, indicts Officer Darren Wilson—and then, against all odds, gets Wilson convicted of murder-- and for being too white.  Then, with the 2014 elections in the rear view mirror, Holder resigns his post, and rides away a champion to those of color.  He leaves in his wake a small local community police department in shambles, while dividing the country even more.  He's corrected the previously uncorrectable injustices in the state of Missouri and he’s now free to represent the illegal immigrant, the down trodden, the persecuted Muslim and those remaining in Gitmo---which is pretty much what he had been doing before joining the Department of Justice.  Sorry, I went all Chris Matthews on you there for a minute.

As Mr. T is famous for saying, “I pity the fool!” Only in this case, it’s “fools.”   Some of us are fools for believing anything Holder does or says, some are fools for being manipulated by Holder and his associates and the rest of us are fools for allowing this kind of crap happen in this country.

Banana Republic?  Nah, we’re not that high up on the food chain………….
