It looks like time has run out for Tawana Brawley. I recall living in New York state at the time of this huge hoax and it never set well with most of us at the time. Initially, it appeared as though Tawana had been kidnapped, raped, and generally treated horribly by New York police officers who – it was alleged – were white. Passions were inflamed and it was not long before a much larger-than-life “Rev.” Al Sharpton rolled onto the scene to side with the alleged victim. His accusations are noteworthy, which became the subject of a number of defamation of character lawsuits later on. The fines levied against him totaled $66,000, which was ultimately paid “by O.J. Simpson lawyer Johnnie Cochran and others.”
You know, it’s clear to me that the global elite does not even care to hide their intentions anymore. They have been attacking Republicans for a number of years and every once in a while, they trot out some person of color to stand against the GOP while accusing the same of racism. The latest “house Negro” to be trotted out? Why Colin Powell, of course! Yet, the Dems would fully deny that Powell is being used for this purpose, while they constantly accuse the GOP of doing the very same thing.
Every time I read about California, I drop to my knees and thank God (literally) that we LEFT! The state is being swallowed up by a budget overdraft that Gov. Brown says is really a surplus (No Gov., California is in the RED), the liberal legislature is doing all they can to push people away from the state – both businesses, individuals, and families – with their leftwing policies, and the only part of the state that is likely making any money at all is down in Hollywood. Even there, every chance filmmakers get, they move their productions out of the state to either Canada or one of the “right to work” states here in what’s left of America. Why? Because for all their talk, leftwing Hollywood filmmakers like saving money and they can do that when they don’t have to work with unions. Odd, isn’t it?
When you buy a gun from a licensed gun dealer, you must fill out paperwork. Beyond this, in most states, if you do not have a concealed weapons permit, you are also subjected to a background check before you can buy that weapon. If you possess a concealed carry permit, you avoid this last step. Why? Because you had an extensive background check (including fingerprinting) when you applied for your concealed carry permit, which takes anywhere from two to eight weeks before you receive your concealed carry permit. The federal government is the one that does the background check for concealed carry permit holders.
I taught in the California public school system for roughly 10 years an an elementary school teacher; mainly 6th grade. The schools I taught at all had signs boasting that the school was either drug free, gun free, or both. I recall at one particular school, we even had a full ceremony out front where officials from the city were invited to tell us what a wonderful thing it was that the school was drug and gun free, as if posting a sign to that effect meant that it reflected the truth.
For anyone who is truly conservative, they know it isn’t long before the attacks begin by the leftist “Nazis” at Facebook who take the time to warn conservatives that their posts may not be aligned with the community standards of FB, yada, yada, yada.
Yesterday, Brit Hume noted that, based on Mr. Obama’s inaugural address, it should have become clear to everyone that Mr. Obama is very left-leaning. He is not a centrist by any stretch of the imagination. Specifically he stated, “His inaugural speech should put to rest for all time the notion much favored by his admirers in the press that he is a centrist. He is not. He looked out to his west today across a country still suffering the after effects of a severe recession and said only that a recovery had begun. And his prescription for accelerating that anemic recovery? None was heard.”
