The Democrat Hall of Shame

William J Jefferson: took a $90,000 cash bribe (among numerous others). He claims innocence, but innocent people don't hide $90,000 cash in their freezer.
William Jefferson Clinton: lied under oath to a grand jury, disbarred.
Kwame Kilpatrick (Mayor of Detroit): improper affair with a subordinate, lied about it (why not? Clinton did!), assault.
John Edwards: cheated on his wife, there's a love-child to show for it, lied about it for months to the press.
Robert Wexler: Congressman from Florida who hasn't lived in Florida for 10 years, violating residency requirements.
Barack Obama: openly consorts with terrorists and America-hating radicals.

As always, you are trying to get us to turn our attention to short-term matters (for example, "it's the economy, stupid").

But America periodically remembers that it is, in fact, about character, stupid.

Dems hate Bush because he's a man of character, who sticks to his principles, and isn't a mask-wearing . Men of principle and character are usually disliked because they refuse to bend to someone else's will.

Men like the above, who bend every which way as the wind blows, who hold themselves above the law, who act immorally day in day out.. well, I will leave it up to America, whether we are better served by slippery, slimy devils, or by men you can trust (even if you disagree with them).

Murder in the US

In 2011, I calculate the overall US murder rate as 4.6 per 100,000 population.

But if you recalculate this, and assumed that black men murdered at the same rate as everyone else, the overall rate would drop to 1.9 out of 100,000 population. That would give the United States the 147th highest murder rate in the world - or, the 60th best.

The insane disproportionate murder rate among US blacks is why the overall US murder rate seems so high.

I don't understand why liberals refuse to talk about this. I don't understand why blacks refuse to talk about this. Blacks are just as often the victim as the offender - almost SIXTY PERCENT of murder victims in the US are black. Shouldn't they care about this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to talk about this? Yet they are silent.

And it's not like this is any secret. This culture of violence, abuse of women, and plain thuggery is paraded around daily in pop music. It's glorified on TV shows like "The Wire…

The Root of Violent Extremism

We are too flippant about writing off violent extremists as "crazy", "psychopathic", etc.

Just because *we* have a hard time conceiving of doing violence to others, does not mean that those who do are insane.

Hitler was not insane. Hitler was evil. There is a distinction.

To be insane, to be "crazy", means you cannot understand the difference between right and wrong.

People like Hitler, like ISIS, these people are *evil*. They have, in what they believe to be a rational process, *chosen* to embrace a death-worshipping morality.

Such thinking is going to lead us down wrong alleys in dealing with violent political extremism.

Unless we understand the various reasons why such people embrace philosophies of death, we cannot combat the root causes and defeat violent extremism.

Obama's "they need jobs" is a juvenile approach at this. But you simply cannot ignore and dismiss the reality of life in the countries that are the flash-points of extremism…

Transparency needed in investigations of police

I have not sat on a grand jury any time in my life. I am disinclined, having not pored through records, nor listened to dozens of witnesses, to second-guess the difficult decisions these jurors have had to make.

HOWEVER. There is a clear problem of trust going on, and it stems from a couple different sources.

1) Grand Juries are usually secret. There are good reasons for this. Simply investigating whether a crime might have occurred, which is what Grand Juries do, collects a lot of evidence which could put people's lives at risk, or could be embarrassing. You want folks to feel free to talk. And you don't want the person being investigated to get unduly smeared.

However, the flip side of secrecy is that the lack of transparency can lead to a loss of trust. Clearly, in the two incidents discussed recently, many people who have no idea what went on in the GJ's or what evidence was presented, know, they just KNOW, an injustice was committed! And, because they have no opportun…
