70 From the MFM's perspective, they didn't "screw up" their coverage of Ferguson. Their coverage was all that they could have hoped for -- angry riots, burning buildings in the the night, grief-stricken parents of the fallen Gentle Giant, hobbled law enforcement, and endless opportunities for moralistic hand-wringing and other leftist drivel. It was a Night of Dreams for them.

It's amusing -- in a pathetic way -- that Williams was, for a few minutes, a Media Darling of the Right when NPR slapped him down for daring to speak teh truth....

IIRC, more than a few of our Big-Time Conservative Pundits came to poor widdle Juan's defense back then, and had no problem with Fox signing him up.

He's another example of the Marco Rubio Syndrome, in which a clean, articulate minority-type is clasped to the collective bosom of "Republicans" and stays there until he opens his worthless yap.

99 At least Dewing is responding to comments. Although, the response seems to be: "you're stupid for thinking that, and therefore, shut up".

I'll give him this: McCain overplayed "Joe The Plumber," big time. I remember that debate, and damn did he hammer that. It seemed like EVERY question could be brought around to Joe the Plumber. But that's MCCAIN, not the party at large, and McCain's an idiot, so...

Similarly, I take the point on Carson, just a little less so. Every time someone pulls up the fact that a (potential) candidate is not experienced as a politician or lawyer (i.e., they haven't learned to lie convincingly in public so as to advance their clients' fortunes), I start to wonder how we decided that THAT particular occupation was the sine qua non of office preparation.

But he doesn't seem to have corresponded (or followed) Holly Fisher. Not surprising, that. All she did was post a picture, and, when hit by the lefties, in the tradition of Breitbart, she doubled down and fired back. A podcast decided she'd be good to have on, and now she's a conservative voice on the net. She ain't running for office, she's just agitating for the cause, as far as I can tell.

As far as Palin is concerned... I have the feeling that Dewing is one of those who watched as the left descended on Wasilla, and sued her into bankruptcy, and thought tsk, tsk, but SOME people just shouldn't be in politics... In other words, she was good enough to use to advance the fortunes of An Experienced And Wise Politician Of Moderate Temperament, but once THAT purpose had been served, well, that snowbilly (rightfully) should have gone back to her cabin in the wilderness and left politics to her betters.

So, Dewing, shut up. Go jerk off in your ivory tower to the picture of some policy wonk and weep in your heart as you wonder why milquetoast just doesn't inspire like it used to...

Thanks.

I'll be safe, riots tend to be in relatively small areas, especially in a place as spread out as St. Louis.
The key is to just stay on this side of the highway, know your exit routes in case things get hairy and keep an eye out for "lone wolves" (or roving groups of idiots) that stumble into your area.

I'll say this: I live in a surprisingly diverse area. Sure it's a majority white by a huge margin, so is the country. (The local elementary school is statistically more diverse than the nation. And I don't think that has to do with private schooling because the private school down the road isn't all that big.)

So I had to go to Aldi's last night to get some Milk and bread to tide us over until the end of the holidays.
I saw, whites, blacks, Hispanics, a few yarmulke wearing Jewish kids, all being perfectly polite. Carts colliding with "excuse me" being bandied about. Honestly, I didn't expect that, I expected tension, and anger. What there was was people just trying to get on with their day.

167 They are not being prosecuted because the DA, The Mayor, and the Gov are all Democrats.

Also because, since their testimony is about what they saw, and decent lawyer would tell them to say, "I saw what I saw. They say I couldn't have seen what I saw, so maybe I'm mistaken- but I'm not a liar." And, poof, no conviction for perjury (unless dirt comes out that they're Republicans, maybe).

This is actually a tool of the Left which we need to remove. Since *at least* George W Bush (and really probably prior to that), the Left has been conflating "mistaken" or "wrong" with "lying." And they do it on purpose- because when Republicans protest "no, he wasn't lying, he was just wrong," then the Left knows that (at least with the LIVs and their Base) they can come out and say exactly the same thing the next time its one of their politicians being accused of lying.

169 Rachel Maddow wants to know, if the witnesses supporting Michael Brown lied, why they aren't being charged with perjury.

Maddowesque self-congratulatory snark, I'm sure.

There's lied, and there's faulty memory and different interpretation of events.

The people who admitted they never saw what they said they saw lied.

Someone can interpret different things differently, that's called opinion.

Like the difference with Maddow being either deliberately obtuse or naturally obtuse. One's criminal, one is just a human flaw.

There were various stages of my confusion with this case.
But one thing remained clear. From day 1 I told my wife "Eyewitness testimony in cop shootings is entirely useless."

It cuts both ways too. Cop supporters will always see an aggressive thug who had to be stopped. "Fuck the police" types will always see a wild and crazy cop on a execution spree.
They aren't "lying" in any sense (well some of them are, but that's a different point.) They just see what they want to see.

Sure occasionally you'll get someone who calls them as they see them, but that's rare. (And usually it's a cynical person who hates both cops and whoever got shot.)

In an ideal world the media would be noting this, because it's so flipping obvious. But apparently not worth reporting.

Well the one thing we do have going for this area is it's solidly middle to upper class. Yes the families in the apartments may be barely scraping by, but they scrape by. Which is more than I can say for some areas that are around here.

And those people know they live in a good area, and they work to stay here. When you cling to something like that it makes you less likely to tear it all down. When an area is somewhere you're just passing through, you're more inclined to burn it.

243 Oh Jesus, they're not trying to get families to talk about lefty talking points over Thanksgiving AGAIN, are they?

Yes. They are.

Because there will be some among your family who are LIVs (and therefore persuadable), and the actual Conservatives will (usually) be too focused on *not* wanting to cause trouble at a family function.

So they know that (most of the time) their lefty talking points won't be refuted at family holidays.

Heh!
The Left (and really, communists) must destroy/convert every holiday.
I expect Obama to be making some kind of statement soon about Thanksgiving be a day of service - being your brother's keeper blah, blah, blah - like he does every year.

No, No, it's not. It's about being thankful for all of our blessings, loved ones, and for America. I'll volunteer at the food bank some other day, thanks!

Refusing to mobilize the National Guard?

Lt. Gov says the only thing he can think of is "somebody in the Obama WH, Jarret, or holder, or one of their people, leaned on the Governor to not employ the Guard."

He cannot think of anything else.

Perhaps. But I think Nixon is just a coward who figured he'd wait it out rather than being "the governor who called in the guard."

But it got worse than he expected. And the mayor and police chief turned on him (saying they were calling out for help.)

What I want to know is, if Nixon wouldn't return the mayor or the police chief's calls (as Kinder states) and no one could find him, at what point can Kinder say "He's unreachable, I get to step in."

278 Way OT but just something interesting I read this morning. How did Jews get to be the scapegoats of the western world? It might have started long ago. After the Jewish War of AD 69-70, Jews weren't real popular with the Romans. Then when accounts of Jesus's crucifixion were written or presented as plays, they had to sugarcoat Pontius Pilate's role because pissing off the Romans in those days was suboptimal. So if the Romans were above reproach that left the Jews.

My problem with that theory is that everyone knew that's what the guard was there for. They'd been moved to the area specifically for that purpose, so why not just deploy them prior to the Grand Jury's announcement, and then they're there to "keep the peace" no matter what the decision is?

Honestly, it's exactly what I would have done, with an explanation of "Hey, when all this started there was rioting and looting. I fully expect everyone to be peaceful at this time, but it would be irresponsible of me, as Governor, to ignore the possibility of more violence."

Heck, he could even thrown in veiled references to "outside agitators" and The Patriarchy if he wanted.

Obama: 'I Just Took An Action To Change The Law'
DC: http://tinyurl.com/q43n8kz


The White House has argued that President Obama's executive amnesty order last week was made well within the existing law. But in remarks in Chicago tonight, President Obama went off script and admitted that in fact he unilaterally made changes to the law.


President Obama made the admission after getting heckled for several minutes by immigration protesters.


"Now, you're absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations. That's true. But what you are not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law."


And then the applause. Which is the whole point.

324 I found those videos of the 92 riots interesting. I hadn't seen them. The roof Koreans were wonderful. I thought it was funny that the reporters considered them a threat to the cops and fireman. Someone legally armed and protecting their property would never be a threat. I also liked the reporter running after the looters, asking questions. She asked one "Are you ashamed?" It would be nice if the press could remind looters that they are being thieves.

Hey I've just read an article about a young bloke being mauled to death by a bear in New Jersey!

And I thought New Jersey was all cities and towns..

However I will give thanks to not being bitten by the family of redback spiders who live in my letterbox - they move in every summer and nothing gets rid of them !

Positive feedback mechanism: While males thrive in warm climates, then they invent things that make it warmer, so that more of them thrive etc.

329 Speaking of Pajama Boy,

You know that video where some libs get to shoot guns for the first time? A while back, I was watching that with my daughter, and I remarked how amazing it was that they got a Pajama Boy look-a-like for that video. Daughter replies, no, that's a pretty standard type for that age/generation.

I've rarely felt so hopeless for our future.

People in the developed world are way taller than they used to be (on average). I'm nearly a foot taller than both grandmothers, probably all that vitamin-fortified Shredded Wheat I had to choke down at the age they were getting leftover gruel. If they were lucky.

I use artificial wreaths with big red bows on the shutters and front door, and we have a couple of wood reindeer.
It's simple to put up, bright enough to see from the street, and simple to take down after the holidays are over.
Anymore, if it's a PITA to put up or take down, I cringe.
So many things I used to do, I either don't have time for or energy, either.

No I think you really underestimate how cowardly Nixon is.

When all this started, he waited several days hoping it would blow over.
Then when it finally became obvious he needed to be involved, he showed up once then decamped to St. Charles (Wheldon Springs) and never got any closer than that again.

And from what I gather reading news reports, it's not clear here's anywhere near here or in contact with anyone after his last press conference.

Yes, you're applying logic, but I'm not sure logic works when you're dealing with such a spineless nitwit.

As for the original order for the guard, it was only for 700 troops, spread out among the whole metro area. (Many it seems in the city of St. Louis?)
It's the ultimate cowardly act: sign the order early, hope it deters people run away.

Typical Nixon.

365 As to why the guard was not deployed, well my grand dad once told me never give an order that won't be followed.

So if your Gov. of Missouri and you tell the National Guard to assemble to protect the city of Ferguson, what are you willing to have them do in order to keep the peace? Are they going to be armed? Do they have the authority to fire on people? Deadly force, or just rubber bullets? Will the National Guard carry out the orders? Will you risk making another Kent State? (what the media will say regardless that the 2 are so dissimilar)

Not sure what the right answer is, I am just morality playing it in my head.

367 My problem with Neal Dowling's piece is that one person clearly doesn't belong. Obviously that person is a former governor and VP candidate.

If people want to criticize Palin - do it. Don't do it by lumping them in with a criticism of Joe the Plumber and Ben Carson.

But just as Palin bashers think the pro-Palin people are too myopic in their defense of Palin, those bashers are the same. They never give Palin any credit she is rightly due. She still moves voters, her endorsement matters a lot more than most politicians. And on policy, she has been more often right about Obama than others.

The bashers may not want her - their prerogative - but to ignore her influence is to bury your head in the sand.

At the risk of sounding like Constaza Defense, IIRC the US average height for adult men has gone down as the proportion of immigrants from countries with shorter average heights *cough* has risen. And since we're being flooded with kids from those countries, it would be not unlogical for the average height of children to be smaller.

Our legal system has been nurtured by the left and our society no longer has the balls to do what needs to be done to deal with people like that. Even if there are good officers out there who have the dignity to care about a civilized society and enforcement of the rule of law, they have little to back them up. The Wilson case never should have never even been presented to a grand jury.

And watch what else happens to Wilson. His ordeal is not over with yet. Holder will do his best to get his pound of white flesh. A good man's life has been ruined simply because he was doing his job, and in so doing, had to end up killing a vicious animal in order to save his.

I think he's talked about how he actually does have Aspberger's -- so he tends to rub even his allies the wrong way.

But he's impressively fearless. Only downside is he gets so pissed at the snipers on the Respectable Right that he spends half his time fighting with them. Which is an understandable reaction given how eager the Respectable Right is to destroy his nascent career before it gets any more momentum.

----

I don't either, but Downing brought this up out of nowhere for no reason. Palin is not going to be the GOP standard bearer - she isn't running in 2016. Though I bet she has more influence in 2016 than Mike Lee (who I really like). Its just the condescension toward her for no reason that infuriates me. Has she done anything in the past few months that deserved such a pot-shot?

Every time someone pulls up the fact that a (potential) candidate is not experienced as a politician or lawyer (i.e., they haven't learned to lie convincingly in public so as to advance their clients' fortunes), I start to wonder how we decided that THAT particular occupation was the sine qua non of office preparation.

Good question. Lincoln, maybe? Were any presidents lawyers before him?

416 We started touting high-carb diets in the 70s
--

High-carb diets haven't made us shorter - importing tens of millions of Mexicans and Chinese has.

The decline in avg American's height is pretty much entirely due to changes in the ethnic make-up of America.

The tallest people on the planet are germanic and slavic tribes. I think Denmark is current #1. The Balkans tend to be tall bastards, too. Importing the Irish and Italians didn't exactly boost our avg height either.

When America was the tallest was when it was mainly importing germanic tribes like the English, Germans, Scandis, etc.

Until we discover genetic engineering for height, America will never be the tallest again.

Yes, there are lots of wonderful people who volunteer at the soup kitchen on TG. However, as someone who's familiar with soup kitchens (as in regularly volunteering with one in the past) it's not on TG that they need help. Lots of people volunteer them. It's at other times of the year-particularly summer when they need help. It's the same with food pantries. The shelves are usually full during the holidays and during the summer the donations dwindle to nothing

479 6 EL PASO, Texas -- Police said Wednesday around 3 a.m. two FBI agents were serving an arrest warrant to a barricaded house in St. Louis County.

The house is located a few miles from Ferguson where protests surrounding the shooting death of a teen by a police officer.

One agent was struck in his shoulder and the other one was struck in the leg.Police said the shooting was not directly related to the Ferguson's protests.

However FBI officials say it is unclear if the shooting is linked to the shooting of a University City police officer on Monday.

Both of the agents had non-lifethreatening injuries.

However, all that presupposes that everybody's on the same page... something that is not a given, IMO.

That's why I discount the possibility of such an event; that IMHO is a last-grasp 'end game' gambit. Without a decent justification for such an event, pulling that trigger... it would be the final signal for 'Game On' against the Proggies.

(This also presupposes all the other tools getting thrown on the table... control of the internet; ordered arrests of 'troublesome people'; and a demand for mandatory gun registration.)

Yeah, eating well changes things. The WWII stereotype Japanese was a small man. The Japanese I went to B-school with in the 80s averaged taller than me (6'1").

As I recall, the Japanese Army officers in WWII were on average, several inches shorter than their own troops. Turns out that almost all of the officer class attended the Jap military schools for children, which would starve the kids as part of the program of turning them into toughened savages. Also had the effect of stunting their growth.

543 My thoughts on Ferguson and their difficulties with having White PoPo tending to their crime needs:

1. How about more than 12% of you show up to vote to decide who runs things.
2. Encourage your young Black men and women to pursue a career in law enforcement or if none of yours are up to the challenge--ADVERTISE and hire for DIVERSITY--pay a premium if necessary, or pay off school loans or whatever.
3. Teach your younguns that during an encounter with an armed person with a badge who has the legal authority to kill your dumb @ss if you attack them--be polite, say Yes/No sir/ma'am and comply instantly with their instructions. During the interactions with the police for three speeding tickets I have received over many years of driving: I was uber polite, kept my hands where they could be seen, and complied with instructions and dayum, I got a ticket, but, I lived.
