The Great Society. There, I’ve said it. The Great Society, which I voted for and supported from the bottom of my heart, is the villain behind Ferguson. Ferguson is the Great Society writ large because the Great Society convinced, and then reassured, black people that they were victims, taught them that being a victim and playing a victim was the way to go always and forever. And then it repeated the point ad infinitum from its debut in 1964 until now — a conveniently easy to compute fifty years — as it all became a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The Great Society and similar policies screwed black people to the wall. It was racist to the core without knowing it. Nobody used the N-word. In fact, it was forbidden, unless you were Dr. Dre or somebody. But it did its job without the word and did it better for being in disguise. Those misbegotten kids running around Ferguson high on reefer and wasting their lives screaming at cops are the product of all this.
This is EXACTLY what "progressives" want. Whites and blacks at each other's throats, giving them an excuse to grab more power and declare a police state. Do you really thing Sharpton and Jackson would be running their mouths the way they have if they wanted it to stop? Don't you think the president would have stepped in and lent some support if he wanted it to stop? Democrats only know how to exploit and exacerbate problems, they have no idea how to actually deal with them. That is painfully obvious to all but their ignorant, loyal, low information voters.
Then there's this: Over a dozen witnesses back up cop's account of what happened in Ferguson. http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/18/us/missouri-teen-shooting/index.html Not hearing much from the media about this, are you? Nope, doesn't fit the narrative.
***Please help defeat Mary Landrieu. Notice their ads never concentrate on Democrat ideas or plans. Nope, it's always destroy the opposition. That's because they don't have any ideas other than grabbing as much power as possible.
***10 questions to ask before clearing out your clutter.
1. Is this item enhancing my life?
This question is better than “Do I love it?” (Because, of course, at one time, you did.) Instead, ask yourself if the item is actively important to you right now.
2. Is this something I’ll want my children to see one day?
A work of art you’re proud of completing? Sure. A moving box filled with decades-old Tupperware? Probably not.
3. Do I already have five of these?
You’ll never use all that red nail polish before it goes bad, and you need, at most, two black cardigans to get through the chillier months.

***Company accuses labor union of forging signatures for political gain. I'm shocked, SHOCKED!
A home health-care company contracted with the Milwaukee County Department of Family Care is accusing a local labor union of forging workers’ signatures to collect more money for political activity.
Art Beck, a Milwaukee attorney representing Sally Sprenger, owner of Supportive Homecare Options Inc., told Wisconsin Reporter two employees have come forward since April alleging they were signed up to make contributions without their authority.
The contributions were for the Committee on Political Education through the Service Employees International Union Healthcare Wisconsin.
After reviewing their forms for voluntary COPE deductions, which help fund union causes for political gain, the workers discovered their signatures were fraudulent, Beck said.
“It’s like a foreign document to them,” Beck said of the COPE application sheet. “They never saw it (before).”
