Usually beer commercials are full of goofy characters and funny gags, but this one carries an important message. Guinness “Empty Chair” salutes the character of a community as they honor one of their own who is out of sight, but not out of mind. They remind us that a true test of character is what you do when no one’s looking.

From TheWeek.com:

Why isn’t the media covering the killing of an unarmed white youth by a black police officer?

The case of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black teenager shot and killed by a white police officer, continues to make headlines weeks after the incident sparked riots and outrage in Ferguson, Missouri, and prompted a national debate.

Meanwhile, the case of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed, white 20-year-old shot and killed by a black policeman outside a 7-Eleven in Utah has received virtually no media coverage beyond local news reports.

The negligible coverage of the Taylor case by the mainstream media prompted many conservative critics to address the racial double standard. The Washington Times reports: “Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh blamed the discrepancy between the two cases on ‘the liberal world view’ that portrays whites as oppressors and blacks as victims.”

The Times noted that CNN news host Jake Tapper acknowledged the discrepancy between the two cases, and noted that “the press often undercovers such topics as inner-city violence and the high rates of black-on-black crime.”

According to Tapper, though, the Brown case is more newsworthy because of the national reaction it sparked, though some question whether the excessive media coverage of the violent protests actually served to fuel them.

Last night, one of the news outlets ran a segment where they interviewed marchers in New York protesting the choke-hold death of Eric Garner, asking them about “justice” in the Ferguson, MO police shooting death of Michael Brown.

I was amazed not so much that most of those questioned have already assumed that Officer Darren Wilson was GUILTY of murdering Michael Brown, despite the many unknown facts, but at the call for justice. The call for justice is appropriate, but this call was for the ARREST and CONVICTION of Darren Wilson WITHOUT A TRIAL. Many said that the facts are in, he is guilty and doesn’t deserve a trial. REALLY??

DOESN’T DESERVE A TRIAL!! I was dumbfounded. It wasn’t just one or two people. It was said over and over again. When asked about our justice system assuming one to be innocent until proven guilty, this group was willing to throw that out the window. “All the witnesses say it is so” was the overall response. One said the witnesses are correct so he doesn’t listen to the news for any further facts (not that most of the media isn’t already spinning it against Officer Darren Wilson.)

It is obvious that the only justice that will be acceptable in Ferguson MO is the arrest, trial, conviction, and incarceration of a white police officer. To railroad the facts, whatever they ultimately are, to reach the “required” end, will be the greatest travesty of justice for ALL.

And on a sidenote, an unarmed¬†white 21 year old male was shot and killed by a black police officer in Utah. Is Eric Holder enroute to Utah now? No, I didn’t think so.

Question of the Day: Should Lois Lerner be Arrested or Should She Be Given Immunity?

It becomes very simple. It is EXTREMELY evident that Lois Lerner broke the law. It is also clear that she waived her 5th Amendment rights when she read a statement to the House Oversight Committee (Her lawyer should have read her statement, and there would be no issue with her 5th Amendment rights).

So should she be arrested for the crimes she has committed, or should she be granted immunity so she can testify freely? And do we then trust that what she proffers is EVERYTHING?

What say you?

 

This story was in my email INBOX today, and I had to pass it on:

Sack Lunches :

I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned
seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will
get a short nap,’ I thought.

Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and
filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation.

‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. Fort Bragg. We’ll be there for two
weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Afghanistan

After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five
dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch
would help pass the time…

As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. ‘No, that seems
like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to base.’

His friend agreed.

I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight
attendant a fifty dollar bill. ‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with
tears, she thanked me. ‘My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and
asked, ‘Which do you like best – beef or chicken?’ ‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to
the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class.

‘This is your thanks.’

After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room.
A man stopped me. ‘I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five dollars.

Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he
walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my
side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand and said, ‘I
want to shake your hand.’ Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand.
With a booming voice he said, ‘I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought
me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.’ I was embarrassed when applause was
heard from all of the passengers.

Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me
reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man
who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!

Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base.
I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. ‘It will take you some time to reach the base.
It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.’ Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and
respect of their fellow travelers.

As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for
our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little…

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘citizens of United States ‘
for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

That is an Honor, and there are way too many people in this country
who no longer understand it.’

Economics Professor Dave Brat was stunned himself last night. In fact, it would be a draw as to who was more stunned, Brat in winning or Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va) for being defeated.

With the backing of grassroots organizing, and without the names of the national Tea Party groups, Dave Brat spent less than $200k to Cantor’s $5¬† million campaign. Brat was able to capitalize on the backing of radio talk hosts like Laura Ingraham.

So what does Cantor’s defeat mean? The DNC and their talking heads are spinning this as the GOP in turmoil. Or could this be the wake up call the GOP Establishment needed? The next few weeks will be very important for the GOP, for the midterms in November and for the 2016 Presidential race. Let’s hope they know how to handle this situation and make it a positive for the country.
