White ex-Marine Beaten to Death by 4 Black Men - Where's Sharpton Now?

Where's the national coverage?

Wheres' the indignation?

Where are the protests?

I suppose a march against this would be considered racist. After all, we're supposed to be tolerant, especially of those not tolerant of us.

Read it and weep:

Our shared thread is that crime is crime, we're not all the same color, and there are some very vocal and visible people - AND NEWS AGENCIES - that have motives for fomenting unrest between the races.

There are laws on the books for hate crimes.

There should be laws punishing the profit motive behind throwing another log on the fire.

It's not unlike shouting "FIRE" in a crowded movie theater.

We agree ... let's begin with Fox News and the U.K. rag that ran this story.

That what you had in mind?

Statistically, all of those charged are Democrats. Part of the 97% black support for Obama.

When will the Democrat Party change whatever it is doing to attract such people?  Encouraging black resentment and hatred of whites.  This is happening too much to dismiss.

And statistically, virtually every heroine addict began with milk.

The statistics reveal a much more accurate portrait than pictures you and others download to present as the typical of TP members.  You aren't suddenly concerned about facts as they concern real people, are you?

Where are those NT TP people, by the way?

Jon,

I must ask, why would Al be there?

Seriously?

He has been a champion for the black man in America, has he not?

Isn't it ALWAYS important to champion a cause? Isn't there a lesson that he can teach his constituency through this incident? Wouldn't it be of value for a black 'leader' to take the opportunity to stand up and look at this crime and say "NO!! This is NOT the way to heal the wounds that exist between the races! This is a STEP BACWARD, my brothers!! We cannot hope to foster harmoney through these actions!!"

It's grandstanding, and it's image. Self-serving garbage.

Nothing more.

It's empty, and the brothers know it.

Exactly. So if you knew the answer, why ask it?

Per,

I believe our purpose here is to stimulate and solicit conversation.

It'd be tough to get more people to join, otherwise ;-)

Jonathan darling,

I do realize that. But my question to you would be why the silly subtext. Of course Al would have nothing to do with this. He has nothing to gain.

He has nothing to gain.

Exactly my point. HE has nothing to gain. But, if he were the true voice of the black community, his COMMUNITY would have EVERYTHING to gain. The only people that step up to the podium are the people who have some selfish self-interest on the subject. And that includes our hopefully one-term POTUS, who has inserted himself too many times on a personal basis, not thinking of country first or justice first.

I've got 2 sons, and neither of them looks like that dead marine.

What about it??

Where's the national coverage?

Well, since YOU know about it, there must be coverage, eh?

And let's be fair and balanced ... when Fox "covered" the Trayvon Martin incident, they did it from the George Zimmerman perspective.

No reasonable human being condones the beating death of any innocent individual.

And Sharpton got into it because the family of the victim asked him to; the history of racist violence warrants his involvement. And if this crime was racially motivated, there should be equal intervention and outrage.

You have a problem with that?

Shifting my Hobby Focus

It was cold. Well, it’s winter, so that’s not surprising. What was surprising was I was bored. Not a thing on TV. Nothing to do but veg on the couch with my laptop looking at cute puppy pictures on Facebook. I was getting cabin fever, and it was reaching critical mass. Why was I so bored? What did I do before in the winter to keep my sanity?

Well. I built airplanes. Beautiful scale model RC airplanes. A P-40 Warhawk modeled after the valiant fighters of the Philippines. A Robert…

   A few months ago i heard an interesting interview with the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne.  He was ranting and raving about a Latin Psychedelic funk band that combines Latin, Jazz, Psychedelic Funk and heavy metal.  Brown Out put out an album last year "Brown Out Presents Brown Sabbath", fusing Black Sabbath classics with a Latin Twist.  After hearing the interview i searched them on youtube and became an instant fan.  Last night i took the wife and my two teens and one of their…

My Coldest Winter ... Ever!

Posted by Jerry Verlinger on March 1, 2015 at 9:00am 15 Comments

This is by far the coldest winter I have ever been through, and I’ve been through 75 of them. Although I can’t vouch for the first three or four because I don’t remember too much about them. Actually I've only been through 74 ½ of them. This one ain’t over yet, and the last 3-4 years have brought us some pretty nasty snow storms in March.

Now snow I can deal with, I live in the greater Lake George resort area about 100 miles below the Canadian border, and snow not only makes beautiful…

In Good Company... Aspergers and Autism.

When my nephew was about two and a half, we began no notice that he had a peculiar habit. He would arrange his cars in size order. When you changed the order of the cars, He would quickly change the cars back order from smallest to largest. He would persist in this activity, and get increasingly upset each time you changed the order of the cars. Soon after, we began to notice that everything in his room had an order, whether it was books, stuffed animals or…
