What strokes is he missing out on?


Excuses, excuses.

Maybe his trip back to DC is so he can announce how tough it has been. Evil republicans never adored him and it led to drug dependency. "You won't have the black guy with a funny name to kick around anymore"

He will be cheered on as a hero for stepping aside, going to rehab, and allowing the country to heal itself. He is depressed and needs counselling and coddling.

Makes sense if it is a popularity contest.

It used to be that people who sought the adoration of special interest groups were simply known as politicians.

@Steph: Know anyone who's been over to the US Amateur at ACC?



I'm looking youtube has dozens of vids of here arrest (which I have been generously posting) ...

here is one of here mouthing off in the booking station.


public integrity in full demonstration right there.

surprised that in TX a .238 -YIKES!!!- doesn't carry enhancements (the ignition interlock was added recently but no other penalties that I see). 10 days mandatory in addition to other penalties here ... and really don't hit anyone at that level ... serious jail time.

Glad I just walk home when I get that drunk.

I'm searching youtube for her femdem endorsements. She has dozens featuring her arrest.

Here she is failing her fst ... and getting mouthy while failing.


Public Integrity and Dems.

I think it is different. Clinton exhibited an incredible lack of personal integrity, which was disgusting, but I never once thought he hated this country or 1/2 of its citizens.

A gigantic water-main broke in TC's neighborhood this morning. I hope he can swim!


even Vox is faceplaming the indictment. Ought to pass around a few copies of The Prince ... good grief.



Protesters believe the media has started to confuse the difference between themselves and the looters. Fights have begun on the streets as well as social media with some believing this has become similar to a game of chess.

According to one peaceful protester, several of them literally put their bodies in between the looters and the different businesses. She feels their efforts were forced after several police officers got into their cars and drove away.

No water here except for the water that always fills up the Inner Harbor, Jane. I'm going to check on the exact location of the water main break.


Imagine that - police department vilified for days, spat upon, suffering rock throwing and worse, relieved of primary responsibility by preening Governor bringing in a State Trooper who seems to think all that was required was a coke and his smile and lawlessness would vanish, and then express outloud without any self awareness that police don't seem that interested in engaging in the quagmire anymore.

The break was a few blocks down from me. The flood water is mostly in a construction site on which waterfront condos are being constructed.

The last 3 piece suit I owned and wore was a Hardy Aimes rose pinstripe from the Disco 70's. I even wore a bow tie with it that I tied myself.

Let's put it this way, it was a first in the UP (where I was building a power plant for CCI). Would never wear it to a hockey game but it was applauded at dinner at the Mather Hotel:)

Volokh on the Perri indictment:


I can't expand the print and it's too small for me even with a magnifying glass. I think he's saying there's a Texas appellate decision in Perry's favor.


Pretty much.

I might add that I would not be surprised to see NBC drop the Golf Channel in the next 5 years. If the US loses the Ryder Cup this year you can put a nail in Golf's coffin.

Beasts of England

So the Special Snowflake protesters in Ferguson are worried about their media portrayal? I really can't process that statement. Have these 'legitimate' protestors considered that no reason for them to be there? Useful idiots.

Anyone remember the unarmed white guy in Maryland shot by the cop earlier this year? Probably not; because terrible things occasionally happen in a country of ~325M people. And sometimes things appear to be terrible, but when the facts come out, it turns out that thugs are stupid. Stay tuned.

John Yoo on executive power and immigration. Simple and direct.


Apparently, when an OPE operative suggested the media sees the Obama White House as “done”, and “old news”, Jarrett’s eyes flashed indignantly as she shook her head from side to side, her right pointer finger tapping the top of a desk several times with enough force it echoed inside  the small White House conference room.


“They think we’re done?  Not quite. Not yet. Not even close.”


Who knows?


It is regrettably interesting how Obama and Holder have inserted the federal authorities before any of the facts are revealed in this case. Obama's early involvement and use of the word "murder" to describe the death of Michael Brown poured gasoline on the fire with the expected results.

It's also unfortunate that the media has picked up the politically correct term "civil unrest" that local governments now use to replace the more accurate word "riot" to describe the public mayhem that has followed the shooting. Crowds are allowed to congregate after dark, to loot and burn. Have these people ever heard of a curfew? Have they considered the effectiveness of the national guard as opposed to that captain of state police whose contribution to crowd control was to stand back and do nothing? I suppose not, because their purpose appears to be to perpetuate the riots night after night until this case is so muddled, no one dare speak the truth.

Well, sanity prevailed after the Zimmerman case. Calls for calm prevented any serious public disturbance. It almost seems that this rioting and criminal behavior has been dormant since the verdict in the earlier case, and that this incident has allowed it to erupt. President Obama and his use of unwise rhetoric to describe both events only made the situations worse. Moreover, his direct interference in Ferguson has undermined the local and state authorities placing the peaceful resolution of this case in jeopardy, as well as compromising future policing efforts in this locale.


If the action Perry requested the DA to take was legal ...
it was ...

If Perry's action in response to her refusal was legal ...
it was ...

Then the 1st Amendment protects Perry's speaking his intentions.

There is precedent for that analysis.

What the anti-Perry faction is thinking ...
... the law in question was amended after to precedent to include "unlawful". Then later amended to remove that word.

They plan to say adding then removing the term indicates intent to overturn the precedent.


except state law can not and will not be found to trump protected first amendment speech...

Since when did curfews mean anything to gangbangers, thugs and looters?




Barbara, I don't recall Obama saying Brown was murdered. Do you have a link?


I wish I did have a link, Clarice. I watched a replay of his comments, and that's what I recall.

I'll do a search for it, and let you know.


The press conference was a joke. The people were jeering and wouldn't allow dem Nixon to speak. This is the result of coddling these miscreants. holder hiding crucial evidence only shows his "My people" have suffered enough to trump real truth and justice. I trace it back to the Black Panther Philly election intimidation case he refused to prosecute. He needs to go pronto.




TK, north St Louis is where the worst slum in the US was -- Pruitt-Igoe -- until they tore it down in the late 70s. It produced boxing's Spinks brothers and many body bags. St Louis had the highest homicide rate in the US in those days, mostly in the north side (with some mob hits on the south side). Consider it the part of East St Louis on the MO side of the river. Back then, Normandy was a troubled suburb adjacent to St Louis and Ferguson was white blue collar. Apparently the whites left when the auto plants shut down (e.g. GM's Corvette plant used to be near there).


FOX: "[Chief] Jackson spent more than 30 years with the St. Louis County Police Department before taking over the 53-officer force in Ferguson, a mostly black city of 21,000, four years ago. While working for St. Louis County, he led a drug task force and was also a SWAT team supervisor, airplane and helicopter instructor pilot, undercover detective and hostage negotiator."

Being 2/3 black, Ferguson most likely won't reelect Jackson, who might have no interest in continuing anyway. But he seems to be a good man, and an accomplished one too imo. Can't say the same for Dem Gov Jay Nixon.


Barbara, all the reports I've seen are consistent with this:http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/michael-brown-shooting-protesters-police-clash-overnight-in-ferguson-mo/2014/08/12/733985e6-2220-11e4-8593-da634b334390_story.html

He never called it "murder". There's no political plus to him for doing so now and if he wasn't burned by his Gates and Trayvon comments, he'd be uneducable.


Wasn't me at 4:30 JiB. Although I understand getting beasts and me confused. :)

Rangefinders are being discussed as an add to the pro tour, also. They have them in all amateur events I know of and they are legal in HS and college. I have no problem with them being used at any level although I'm old school and trust my eyes to tell me how far is too far for a specific club.

I forgot the Amateur was going on this weekend. Switched channels on the TV from LLWS to Mavericks surfing coverage during a commercial and it popped up after the surfing competition. BTW those surfers are NUTZ.

It's because we both look so darned good in a golf skirt, Steph!


40 FBI agents investigating the Ferguson police. (Looters free and clear)


At that presser held today the black cop held up the cards for local FBI interviews.

Only now will witnesses be called to talk with the FBI and I only wonder how 'colored' their recollections will be after recent rioting events.
And those silly people hollering at that presser trust the FBI more than local law enforcement.

Why not come out with some kind of statement on the situation the cop was dealing with from the get-go.

What a horribly sad situation.

Jack is Back (Again)!

Can we all pause a moment and thank LBJ and all the progs since who have enabled the mother fucking talking mob of Ferguson we appreciate for theiir public educaction?



I did get and read the "Siberian" book by Dryden. Just greedy and want more of the great writing.



I'm so bummed about that concert, though. We could have played a round at the club then gone to the concert as dressed as twins. ;)

For JOMers who saw the discussion the other day about the Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute concert at the Fox in November just before the proposed meetup, they put the tix on advance sale Wednesday... only $248 for a decent seat. NFW.

It is being recorded for release early next year. I think we should plan on a lake house party at beasts when the release comes out and have the JOM late night band members do a concert, too. :)

No doubt a commission will be formed to analyze the Ferguson looting. It will be headed by an Otto Kerner type. It will recommend Pigford type reparations and more indoctrination in school of the white privilege talking point. It will ignore the failure of prog educational and welfare policies.

I don't think a curfew, without more, constitutes martial law.


When you've lost Chaitred on this indictment,
well you truly wasted your time.

yes, his learning curve is slightly flatter, now then again, the DOJ had his back, which is very handy, do we know if the CRS is being
'helpful' again?


"Of course, it’s important to remember how this started. We lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances. He was 18 years old, and his family will never hold Michael in their arms again"


Does anyone think that the experience gave her the slightest measure of humility, or empathy, or anything else resembling a positive human emotion?

About as much as a dude accustomed to shoving small store clerks out of the way while stealing cigarillos, I'd wager.


A grand jury will decide whether to charge Ofc. Wilson. Who's investigating his actions and will present the evidence to the gj, since it's not the Ferguson PD and I think I read even the SL County PD has been bypassed? The Highway Patrol? FBI? I can't imagine the horror his family must feel watching this witchhunt.


You're correct, Clarice. I listened to his comments again on YouTube, and he did NOT use the word murdered.

So, I correct my earlier comments as follows:

Obama's early involvement in the case and use of the word "murder" to describe the death of Michael Brown and his statement that "We [have] lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances," poured gasoline on the fire with the expected results.

Thanks for catching my mistake.

The evidence will be presented to the gj by the D.A.

That's a rather harsh characterization of Angel Mikey's heartbreaking and tragic struggle to achieve economic equality by overcoming the petit bourgeois sensibilities of an undercapitalized oppressor. The President and Attorney General both consider Angel Mikey as an OFA Democrat standard bearer and will hold his selfless sacrifice in their hearts forever.

So, last night was Hugathug in Ferguson, will we get to Plugathug tonight or will it take more looting and arson forceful demonstrations in favor of economic equality to get there?

Now, Steph - do you really think I'd let anyone find out the exact location of my lake lair? Major security breach! ;)

@TK: Did he release some little white doves after be uttered that saccharine tripe? For a six year old, that's perfect sentiment; for a 300 lb. gangsta, it rings kinda hollow.

p.s. Forgot to note the 'Tag Heuer it' line. Very nice


daddy @6:21-awesome beat-down and all round hypocrisy expose. Love you!

Ferguson-Florissant School District announced Wednesday that, due to safety and security concerns, classes would not resume for the school year on Aug. 14 as planned, CBS St. Louis reported. The first day of classes has been moved to Monday, Aug. 18.

To many children in Ferguson, the elongated summer break is not cause for celebration.

"I was crying," London Hawkins, a 5-year-old who lives near the location where protests took place Wednesday night, told KMOV News 4. "There was fighting last night, and then I missed school."

Many students in Ferguson rely on meals provided in school, and the delay in the start of classes means more time having to endure empty bellies.


Jindal can compete.


I wonder if Madame DA knew that her delightful videos would become so famous, yet still decided to press on with the bogus indictment.

I'd love to see Republicans play for keeps like these vermin do. Don't guess I ever will, though.

Fox News is down with the program, too, daddy.

Gov. Nixon declares state of emergency, imposes curfew in Ferguson

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew Saturday in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson where black teenager Michael Brown was shot to death by a white police officer a week ago.

No mention of Gov. Nixon's party affiliation in the piece.

Nixon said at a press conference that though many protesters were making themselves heard peacefully, the state would not allow a handful of looters to endanger the community. The curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m.

Nixon also said Saturday the U.S. Department of Justice is beefing up its investigation of the shooting.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is in charge of security in Ferguson, said there were 40 FBI agents going door-to-door talking to people who might have seen or have information about the shooting.

Nixon and Johnson spoke at a church in Ferguson, where they were interrupted repeatedly by people demanding justice and objecting to the curfew.

Johnson assured those in attendance that police would communicate with protesters and give them ample opportunity to observe the curfew.

You're welcome, Steph! I may tear into one of those myself. :)


One of the reasons I said earlier today that I expected a quick resolution is that the statute, as applied to Perry, is an unconstitutional infringement of the First Amendment. Volokh makes that case with a citation to a Texas Court explaining political speech.

There is no need for a lingering trial involving shifting and perjured testimony.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.


No problem, Barbara.


daddy, what's also missing is that years before Nixon (party unknown) opposed desegregation of St Louis schools.


Nixon's the One.

They have Nixon on the local (NBC) news. Massive spin interrupted by post game interview with Packers coach.

nice to see Perry in fighting form:


“I wholeheartedly and unequivocally stand behind my veto, and will continue to defend this lawful action of my executive authority as governor. We don't settle political differences with indictments in this country. It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state's constitution."

Would be nice to see the DAs that brought this humiliated, bankrupted, disbarred ...


My Blue Heaven was great, too.


This is interesting:



I guess they will try a Sgt Schultz move:



Jane, the desegregation involved busing from the city to county schools (St Louis is not part of St Louis County) and very unpopular in the county. It made my youngest brother even more conservative than me.
