"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

The Murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome

White on black crime becomes big news. You can't get away from it. But black on white crime is played down. You hardly every hear of it. Right now, in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been night after night of rioting and violence and looting because a white cop shot and killed an unarmed black teen, Michael Brown.

We don't know what happened in the Michael Brown case yet. There are conflicting reports of what happened, but the black community is protesting every day and night about it. Did any black people protest over the horrible, brutal murders of two white people, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome, at the hands of several black people? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murders_of_Channon_Christian_and_Christopher_Newsom)
No, they did not. Also, the white community did not riot and loot and protest. But maybe they should have. Click on the link and read about what was done to that young white couple by evil black people. And I use the word evil correctly. What those evil people did to that young white couple was evil by anyone's definition. If white people had done that to a young black couple there would have been riots, and looting, and murders of other white people, as well as 24-hour news coverage. But only the crickets were heard when black people did it to white people.

Channon and Christopher were car-jacked, raped, tortured, and murder, but you don't even know their names. Why? You know who Trayvon Martin is. You know who Michael Brown is. But you have no idea who Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome were. Am I anti-black? Am I a racist? No. I harbor no animosity towards any person for their skin color. However I am against the one-sided news about white on black crime (if what happened in Ferguson was a crime) and the lack of newsworthiness of black on white crime. (http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentaries/223696071.html)

Can we say liberals? Can we say leftists? Can we say biased news outlets?

It is my studied belief that one of the biggest problems of the black community was the passage of Lyndon Johnson's policies, commonly know as the War on Poverty, which effectively destroyed the black family and destroyed the incentive to do better. (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1672) (http://www.forbes.com/sites/johngoodman/2014/01/23/why-we-lost-the-war-on-poverty/)

I remember reading an article years ago about how the Swedish government (a socialist government) handled teen pregnancies. A teen-aged girl, living at home with her parents who became pregnant could not receive government assistance. Her parents had to provide for her and her child. A working woman, unmarried, who became pregnant could get government assistance. As a result, teen pregnancy in Sweden was low, even though teen sexual activity was high.

Our welfare system rewards unwed mothers--unwed teen mothers especially--and pushes fathers out of the home. It rewards having sex for the sake of having children because the taxpayer will support those unwed mothers and their children and the fathers have no responsibility. That is the definition of perverse. All children do better with both parents in the home. All communities do better when there is a high rate of married couples. The U.S. model of helping poor people destroys families and engenders poverty and crime.

As to Ferguson, Missouri, it is, reportedly, 70% black by population. The black people could vote, if they wanted to, and they could vote in more black city council people, or a black mayor. They could demand more black policemen. But they haven't. Why? Why now do they complain about the racial problems in their town, without having voted to fix it?

I don't know what happened in the Michael Brown case. I do know that the black people are protesting and rioting and looting. But how many black people spoke up for Channon and Christopher? Where were Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson to condemn what the evil black people did to those two innocent white people? How many white people protested, rioted, and looted over Channon and Christopher? How come you didn't even know about them and their horrible, brutal deaths?

My Analogy on the Israeli-Hamas War

The Israeli-Hamas war is still going on. Several hours before an agreed upon cease-fire was to expire, several rockets were shot into Israel from Gaza and the Israelis, of course, responded.

I called it the Israeli-Hamas war, using the name Hamas rather than Palestinian because I don't believe all Palestinians want to fight the war. But here's my analogy. 

A man pulls out a semi-automatic pistol and fires several shots at you, but does not hit you. You pull out your semi-automatic pistol and fire several shots back at him, wounding him several times. The man, and his friends, then claim that it's unfair because you wounded him but he didn't wound you. Furthermore, he wants you to stop shooting at him so he can reload and shoot more bullets at you.

The point being, the second man would not have shot at the first man if the first man hand not shot at the second man. So whose fault is it that the first man got wounded?

If the innocent, non-war-like Palestinians (if such exist) don't want to get caught in the cross-fire between Israel and the Hamas terrorist group, which has brought this war down on them, then they need to get rid of Hamas.
