Something To Think About

The Morning Walk and Comments
so if you don't want someone looking in your trailer you just park a roller in front of the door.
with the rain I have weeds. They grow faster than the vegetable's.
I have no idea how accurate the numbers are from "now you kno" but it does sound reasonable. The government in their push to show job growth are allowing companies such as WalMart and Sam's Club to lay off full time workers and replace them with two "less than 20 hours a week" workers. The result is the government can show a new job filled and walmart does not have to provide benefits to the 20 hour a week worker. Of course the worker can't survive off the pay for 20 hours a week so they end up at a fast food restaurant to supplement their income.
and while I am on the subject of Walmart doesn't it gripe your ass about their "made in America tv commercials"? The store has 90 percent of their products for sale made outside the USA and they are advertising they sell Bounty paper towels because they are made in the USA. Bullshit.
The above is the separation paper of Major Clark Gable from the Army in 1944. Note that it is signed by Capt. Ronald Reagan.

President Obama's Eulogy
Comments in no particular order
Amazing grace. Amazing grace.
(Begins to sing) -- Amazing grace -- (applause) -- how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me; I once was lost, but now I’m found; was blind but now I see. (Applause.)
The main theme of Obama's speech was the hymn "Amazing Grace" written by white, English slave trader John Newton in 1779 in celebration of God saving his slave ship from a wreck in 1748. Despite this ,it has long been appropriated by America's black community as part of their culture. It is ironic.
Perhaps it causes us to examine what we’re doing to cause some of our children to hate. (Applause.) Perhaps it softens hearts towards those lost young men, tens and tens of thousands caught up in the criminal justice system -- (applause
They are in jail because they broke laws - why would a President imply otherwise. Loretta E. Lynch who appears to be Black, but you never know now days, is attorney general of the United States, maybe if he feels Black people are being unfairly treated he should look there.
In 2008, the most recent year for which such data seems to have been collected, FBI surveys show that, out of 520,161 interracial violent crimes, blacks committed 429,444 of them against whites, while whites committed 90,717 of them against blacks.
In other words, blacks commit more than 80 percent of all interracial violent crime.
In order to cover up this percentage they have changed the way a "Hate" crime is viewed, needless to say it biased toward few crimes by Blacks against white as ever showing up in the records.
Maybe we now realize the way racial bias can infect us even when we don't realize it, so that we're guarding against not just racial slurs, but we're also guarding against the subtle impulse to call Johnny back for a job interview but not Jamal.
Who is killing blacks males in our urban areas?
Who is committing violent crimes at 10x their percentage of the general population?
Who is impregnating black and white women and then abandoning these women to raise feral children on the strength of a welfare check?
Who is shrugging when these children fail to do their homework, skip school, start doing drugs, start running with gangs, start having their own babies as schoolgirls?
Is it Johnny?
Why would you call Jamal back for a job interview and bring with him his culture of drugs, murder, hate and lack of responsibly?
For too long, we were blind to the pain that the Confederate flag stirred in too many of our citizens. (Applause.) It’s true, a flag did not cause these murders. But as people from all walks of life, Republicans and Democrats, now acknowledge -- including Governor Haley, whose recent eloquence on the subject is worthy of praise -- (applause) -- as we all have to acknowledge, the flag has always represented more than just ancestral pride. (Applause.) For many, black and white, that flag was a reminder of systemic oppression and racial subjugation. We see that now.
Removing the flag from this state’s capitol would not be an act of political correctness; it would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers. It would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought -- the cause of slavery -- was wrong -- (applause) -- the imposition of Jim Crow after the Civil War, the resistance to civil rights for all people was wrong. (Applause.) It would be one step in an honest accounting of America’s history; a modest but meaningful balm for so many unhealed wounds. It would be an expression of the amazing changes that have transformed this state and this country for the better, because of the work of so many people of goodwill, people of all races striving to form a more perfect union. By taking down that flag, we express God’s grace.
The one tragic and shameful difference between Roof and Obama, is, that at least Roof was honest about his racist beliefs
So How Much Did Other Mass Shooting Victims Get?
An unspecified portion of the money, allocated under the government's national Crime Victim Assistance Formula Grant program, can be used to provide services to the families of victims of the shootings at Emmanuel AME Church, spokesman Kevin Lewis said.
On the late afternoon of Friday June 19 the Obama Justice Department led by new Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced it will “fast track” $29 million to victim families of the June 17 shooting at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston South Carolina, The exorbitant payout amounts to over $3.2 million per family.
update I found this on the internet
The funds are being sent to the Connecticut Office of Victim Services, which is part of Connecticut’s Judicial branch. From there the money will be distributed to the town of Newtown and other organizations designated to serve the community, including Newtown Youth and Family Services, St. Rose of Lima Church, the Newtown Resiliency Center, Wellmore and the United Way of Western Connecticut

A Plug For My Cousin's Blog
The Farewell Social for Chief Hal Saylor and Lt. Robt Remo
Just a comment and Congratulations to Lauren - one Fast intern
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their pleas is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.
Needless To Say I Do Not agree with the decision. Once again it is an insult to the majority of Americans
I did however learn about an interesting system concerning court decisions and the method used to get that decision to the press. This was picked up from "I Rarely remember" at
SO THE INTERNS RUN THROUGH THE SUPREME COURT BUILDING FROM OUTSIDE THE PRESS ROOM TO OUTSIDE, ACROSS THE PAVED WALKWAYS, AND DOWN THE STAIRS OF THE COURTHOUSE AREA INTO THE BROADCASTING PRESS PEN IN THE STREET
AND ALL ARE RACING TO BE THE FIRST TO DELIVER THE COURT RULINGS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE BROADCASTERS WHO ARE WAITING TO GO ON AIR
This with more information is also shown here http://www.ijreview.com/2015/6/353033-the-2015-running-of-the-interns/

Items Hung on The Board
Friday, June 12, 2015
I have never lived through a war zone, but I do appreciate a good joke. The Siege of Sarajevo has been memorialised in books, films, and numerous monuments, including a can of beef. During the nearly four-year siege of the Bosnian War, 160,000 tons of food and medicine were airlifted to the people of Sarajevo but it was not always appreciated. Most of the food was inedible and outdated, leftovers from the Vietnam War. The ICAR canned beef is best remembered by people with disgust. Even cats and dogs wouldn’t eat it. What people really needed at the time was weapons. Therefore, when the “Grateful Citizens of Sarajevo” thanked the donors with “The Monument to the International Community” in 2007, the meter tall golden can of beef sent a clear message to the so-called humanitarian aid. Yes, it appears that the good people of Bosnia and Herzegovina know what irony means. And I applaud them.
And by the way tonight is St Stephen's movie night at State Street park. Movie starts at 8 PM.
