Well if this isn't a fine mess. I understand the tragedy of this young man being shot REGARDLESS of race!!!!! To the parents of Micheal Brown do you condone all the violence and now more deaths? Is this what you projected when you went national with your grief? I PRAY TO MY GOD ABOVE NOT! For by now stepping back and saying nothing to the people rioting on your son's death's behalf you to are to blame for what has transpired in Ferguson!!!! Yes, you need to be active everyday in attempting to speak publicly to try to calm the situation. We all know that when all is said and done, these businesses are taking a huge hit and may very well never recover and your town as well, as is our government for all the extra security, and now more families that have lost loved one's in your son's name sake and I am quite sure when you get your big fat settlement for the death of your son, which will never bring him back I might add, you will not give to the closing businesses, or to the families who too have now lost family members. Take a stand now and help end this if you truly are honest, God fearing people!!!!!!

Yes we have now extended our reach to China. The Elders have alerted the Jews of Kaifeng to get ready to be called in to action.

They will have a difficult time since they are so small and China has over 1 billion people. But we are assured not to worry, everything is under control

the elitists with their progressive wing has made sure that "hate, "hating", "racist" and other words were mainstreamed to anything a person may not like. So you don't like a food item and some will retort back to you in this idiot era..."Stop the hating"...and be serious. So how the hell are we going to correct problems and issues when this exists at the simplest levels? Answer is...we will not. And the tyranny will expand and the hostility between groups of people will do the same with the help of enablers.

No, it's brought out a group of people who are tired of other people living off taxpayers and not working, and therefore having endless time and energy to loot and destroy the businesses of people who do work and pay taxes.

It's also brought out a group of people who understand how American justice SHOULD WORK and who are outraged by the discriminatory demands of a group of people that a man be arrested and charged before the investigation has been completed and a group of people who only believe in "innocent until proven guilty" when a black person is involved.

My suggestion to you is that you do a some reading, follow the news, watch news discussions on TV, and listen to what experts such as economists, military leaders, and intelligence experts have to say about Obama's presidency. Your view of Obama's presidency would become more realistic and accurate.

I don't judge Obama on the color of his skin, I judge him by his actions and leadership. In my book his grade is D- and Congress's grade is a F.

To put the economic collapse on Bush/Chaney reveals just how little you know about economics or recent history. Let me see if I can enlighten you:

1. The law that repealed Glass-Steagall, which was the main cause of the financial collapse, was a bipartisan bill signed into law during the Clinton Administration in 1999 - long before mean ol' Mr. Bush took office.

2. The cause housing collapse can be traced back to HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros in 1994, who put in motion a plan to loosen lending requirements and allow people to get mortgages who clearly could not afford them.

3. The infamous "two wars not on the books". This, to me, is the most aggravating. Lost in the Michael Moore-filled haze is an inconvenient little fact - democrats voted to go to war in Iraq, in large numbers. Bush/Chaney didn't fabricate evidence. They were shown the same evidence as the democrats - and they all agreed. If there were never any WMD's in Iraq, then why did the Air Force spend the 90's bombing Iraq every so often for not allowing UN inspectors access?

So those are the broad strokes. If you can put down the bong, put down the Kerouac novel, put away the Guy Fawkes mask, and do a bit of research, you can get more into the details. I don't have time to go that deep for you...I have a job.

Have a nice day, slick.

<quoted text>"could have already been collected or washed away" -- if so - that alone would indicate a crime, cover-up and possible conspiracy to obstruct justice committed by local authorities.

In a properly conducted crime scene and forensic exam - that kind of tampering with a body would NEVER happen.
the body should have never been embalmed until all facts were known. That alone could create doubt to a jury if it conflicts with the second autopsy.

You should listen listen to Sally Kohn's TED Talk. I don't agree with her politics at all, but you could learn a thing or two about how to properly address those you disagree with.
