Remus says - Hispanics understand hand-feeding and exalting self-declared, practicing enemies is not a viable strategy. In the rest of America this destructive arrangement is being amplified by its own feedback. Ferguson is just the latest evidence of inherent instability. In 2/3 black Ferguson, justice and good will are clearly out of play when a black activist Attorney General issues a blatant us-versus-them statement, "This attorney general and this Department of Justice stand with the people of Ferguson." Uh huh. "The people," wink wink. Such normalcy as remains elsewhere is visibly faltering. Sides are being taken, fervently or reluctantly. In sports the game is played to settle the question of which is the better team. This game was scheduled long ago. It will be played. We shall see who's outwitted who. We shall see which associations are forced contrivances and which are freely entered into. Stay away from crowds.
You can put a fork in Silicon Valley. They are done. Jesse “King of Beers” Jackson has his talons in their tills and they have maybe, at best, 10 more years in which they will be a positive and innovative source of American technological advance. He informs us that ”Hi-tech giants have a moral and economic duty to promote inclusivity in their workforces.” This is how the worm infests the apple. This is how America will one day cease to be functional nation, says Repair Man Jack in this article, How the Worm Crawls Into the Apple, at Red State.
New York State schools drop history requirement - The Regents, as part of their effort to promote new national Common Core standards and mystically prepare students for non-existing 21st century technological careers, voted unanimously that students did not have to pass both United States and Global History exams in order to graduate from high school and maintained that they were actually raising academic standards... Merryl Tisch, Chancellor of the State Board of Regents, described the change as an effort to "back-fill opportunities for students with different interests, with different opportunities, with different choice."
Last laugh - One of the last men alive in Constantinople when the Plague of Justinian wiped out the city was the poor servant who cleaned out the drains with his hands beneath the morgue. Procopius tells us that he was laughing as he walked out the gates of the city. The poorest man in the city who could afford no doctors or medicine was one of the very few left alive. All the wealthiest had died with their expensive physicians buried alongside them after they had been fleeced for their entire fortune with useless quackery in search of the cure.
White House consensus - Netanyahu’s performance as an Israeli Defense Forces commando staging raids along the Suez Canal and deep within Syrian territory during the 1973 Yom Kippur War should have no bearing on Netanyahu’s status as a chickenshit. At the time, White House aides noted, Obama was himself forming his own elite unit in Hawaii, one that was eventually known as “The Choom Gang.”
The Sherman tank - Most tanks at the time ran on diesel, a safer and less flammable fuel than gasoline. The Sherman’s powerplant was a 400-horsepower gas engine that, combined with the ammo on board, could transform the tank into a Hellish inferno after taking a hit. All it took was a German adversary like the awe-inspiring Tiger tank with its 88-millimeter gun. One round could punch through the Sherman's comparatively thin armor. If they were lucky, the tank's five crew might have seconds to escape before they burned alive.
