No Dave. Listening. I could still end up voting for the Democrat, although I'd prefer someone younger than Mrs. Clinton and not from Maryland.

If Christie is still on the ballot by Pa Primary Day '16, I will vote for him.

PS - if I felt strongly inclined toward anyone, I might be motivated to be involved politically. I don't. I probably won't.

Just started reading Ghettoside. If you truly have trouble understanding what "black lives matter" means, this book might help. Highly recommended.

Looks like GHettoside at least talks about black-on-black, too.

This from one of the comments on the book's web site:

Jill Leovy's theory, in a nutshell, is that "men [kill] one another to settle disputes or exact revenge in the absence of a trusted legal authority." Even as she details the awful statistics - in 1993, black men age 20-24 died by homicide at a rate of 368 per 100,000 - she maintains that the lack of police presence in minority neighborhoods drives young men to take matters into their own hands.


This is totally at odds w/the message of Black Lives {Taken By Police} Matter. Or w/those assholes marching around calling for dead cops.

Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

No, actually it's not. Both this book and Black Lives Matter advocate for better policing. Not more, not less--better.

Almost done with the book, btw. Strongly recommended.

Alabama officer charged w/murder after shooting man carrying paint roller handle.

Quote:
"You know I tip my hat to them because we do need them," Hinson said. "I just want to know if the protocol is to shoot an unarmed man down dead in front of somebody's house anytime they feel like it."

SNIP

Bailey said he believes Gunn's death is an "isolated incident," and asked the community not to criticize the city's police department.


Totally isolated. Except for all those others just like it, nation-wide.

Here's why BLM is important and is working - you're now hearing about all of these unarmed deaths, and the needle is swinging in the direction of justice rather than cover-up. The true effect will be when these incidents stop happening so regularly.

This guy was allegedly going for a STICK and got blown away.

Blast from the past. Remember when there was something of a Christie bandwagon?
