Two weeks in a row we have the police front and center, this time the accidental shooting of yet another unarmed black man, this time by a reserve deputy who was a hundred years old and still on the force. Cameras have exonerated several cops this week, including one brave officer who refused to shoot a guy who may or may not have a had a gun. That's the kind of cops we need more of and less elderly playing cop or with a shoot first ask questions later mentality. Let's see those runner ups.
9)Worcester religious leaders- This week, religious leaders of central MA got together and held a press conference and claimed that racism in this area was out of control. Fair enough but when pressed for proof they clammed up and said this wasn't the time and place to discuss such things? Really? When exactly would be a better time than a press conference that they called? The best they could do was claim the internet was responsible for various levels of racism, which is true, but extends to all people, as black racism is alive and well there as well. This was a waste of everyone's time and even the most liberal reporter was put off by the whole thing.
8)Scotland- In yet another giant overreach by the anti-alcohol crowd, Scotland lowered the legal limit to such a low number that even having one beer with lunch would make you "too drunk to drive." In Scotland. This has led to a nosedive on profits for restaurants and is putting people out of business in record numbers while making no one safer as a result. No one who has one beer with lunch is drunk and this prohibition like mentality which is alive and well across the planet is going way too far and is doing more harm then good.
7)DEA- I fucking hate the DEA with the fire of a thousand suns. The agents I have met have been some of the dumbest people on Earth, still claiming that pot will kill you and no drugs should be legal ever anywhere. This week it turns out that not only were these ass clown going to sex parties thrown by drug cartels (WTF?), according the head of the DEA, they can't be fired because of arcane union rules. This is why nothing ever changes because the average Joe can be fired for any reason they like, but the powerful can't be fired for anything. This agency needs to go stat.
5)ISIS- These morons just committed another atrocity by blowing up the ancient city of Nimrud. This is a incalculable loss that is akin to the Holocaust in it's severity and needs to be addressed as such. How much more do we let these idiots get away with before we kill them in their sleep. And while the story by Judicial Watch about ISIS camps on the Mexican border have been thoroughly debunked, they still a clear and present danger to the world scale. It is only a matter of time before a group like this does something so heinous that the entire world looks at them and screams DEATH at the top of their lungs, probably not caring what Muslims they kill at that point. A world war is unlikely in that scenario as Russia, China, Europe and the US will all be united and, unfortunately, innocent Muslims will be targeted as well, leading to yet another Japanese internment-like scenario. The alternative would be dead Muslims in the street as the average human will panic and kill anyone they even think is Muslim. This will end badly if we don't get in front of it and bombing northern Iraq out of existence might be a good start.
3)Marco Rubio- The other candidate who is in the running this week, his candidacy is doomed before it even started. Many a GOP pundit is talking about his "fresh and new" ideas, which is funny as his plan involves the exact same boilerplate crap that voters turned down in the last two elections. He wants to take money from poor people and give it to the rich, end abortion as we know it, deny gay people fair rights, stop legal pot and stop illegals from coming here. So he has already lost gay, young, women and Hispanic votes and it's only a week later. Right now, whoever on the right gets the nomination faces a bruising in the national election regardless of who the nominee is for the democrats as their ideas as old, tired discredited crap that only wins them off year elections. Good luck. You guys are going to need it.
