Not just racist but stupid as well

Well now. Janet Napolitano will leave the Department of Homeland Security. First, you remember Napolitano dont you? She is the utter deer-in-the-headlights moron selected by YOUR president to "head" the DHS. And you see what she has done or rather what she has NOT done. Hand in hand with Commissar Holder in the Justice Department, they have wrought havoc throughout the country and particularly the southern border.…

The happy spread of division- Me Too, Me Too!

One rainy evening in Florida a man confronts another in the middle of a condo complex. Residential burglaries have been a serious problem so a member of the Neighborhood Watch is watching, looking out for his neighbors. Another man, kid actually, decked out in a hooded sweatshirt, whether for the rain, a"uniform" of his identified group or friends or concealment we will never know, is walking through that victimized…

Early on in my Monterey career patrol officers were advised of "minimums". "Minimums" being contacts, more precisely TICKETS. Supervisors never specifically advised us of "quotas" but officers were placed into competition with winners and high…

Think, how many of your own relatives, your ancestors did you actually know, how many…

Well,…

Remember what I said recently about not making this stuff up and about all I have to do is read the "news" for examples of stupidity? Well, Detroit, you remember Detroit? Detroit, which looks a great deal like one of the bombed out cities of Europe toward the end of the war, Detroit, with garbage all about, graffiti on walls, gangs roaming streets, City services all but non existent, unemployment through the roof, corruption still running rampant and, with all this the thugs in City Hall…
