Civil unrest and criminality are not the same thing


Yesterday the name of the police officer who killed Michael Brown was released. The video tape shown above was also released. The tape according the police shows Michael Brown stealing cigars prior to his death. So how does this relate to the shooting of Brown? Does it show that he was a bad guy? It might, but was the stealing of cigars worthy of a death sentence? No. Last night there was more looting in Ferguson and that does not help the situation. Criminal behavior will not yield positive results. The police are being very careful, but their patience will only last for a season. Business owners are now taking arms to protect their businesses and who can blame them? Earlier this morning I heard a reporter say he saw two looters carrying an industrial saw to their car. What does this theft have to do with Brown? Nothing. This is criminal behavior not civil unrest. They are not the same thing.

Is Ray Rice’s 2 game suspension a slap on the wrist?

Ray Rice knocked his then girlfriend out in the elevator of a New Jersey casino. He has tearfully apologized and his now wife has stood by her man, but did the NFL do enough? today they announced his two game suspension and his coach has said they want to move on, but should we move on. Why do we move so quickly when dealing with domestic violence? How many people grew up in homes that you frequently heard” what happens in this house stays in this house”, and often domestic violence was one of those things. The Rice incident put his business out for the world to see and pass judgment on, but is this punishment enough? Share your thoughts.

When did Hillary Clinton become Mitt Romney?


Hillary Clinton has not declared her candidacy for president, but she is the talk of the political world. She said when she and President Clinton left the White House they were “flat broke”. No one in their right mind really thought they were broke. She exaggerated in her zeal to appear that she was just like us “regular folks”. She is not. She is rich like most people who run for president. The key is to be comfortable with your wealth and stop the charade. Mitt Romney got crucified not because of his wealth, but because of his disdain for the 47%. He was out of touch with regular folks, and so is Clinton, but the difference is Clinton was once a member of the regular folk club, and maybe just maybe she might learn how to relate to them again.

How do you get a bad Cricket smartphone replaced?

This is the story of 3 Cricket smartphones. Two were good and one was very, very bad. We have been trying to get the bad one replaced for months, but when you call the 800 number you are connected to people named Paul and Jane who barely speak English. You are given other numbers to call that are answered by automated voices commanding you to hit 1, 2 or 3 where you are greeted by other automated voices. If you get a real human response you are tempted to say Eureka, but that joy is short lived because they will direct you back into the land of 1 800 numbers. So my question is who do you call to get this phone replaced? Need to talk to someone who can really make this happen.
