Plans were made to work outside burning brush and enjoying
a forecasted clear, sunny day. A call to Fire Department told
me it was a burn day so outside I went. In short order the
fire was going and the brush pile kept getting smaller.
Then it started raining, put out the fire, and made the
bundles too water logged to carry.
After I got done laughing at my luck and drying off, my
thoughts went elsewhere. It seems every hour there are
updates online concerning the recent attacks on law
enforcement. Some were interesting, some just sounded like
the writer was biased, and others so far out there even the
tin foil hat brigade would find them funny.
A debate has ongoing as to if Obama is to blame. To my
way of thinking he is because he hasn’t had anything good
to say about our law enforcement agencies since he took
office. This goes back to when the black college professor
had a beef with police and Obama said the police acted
It is ironic that when a white police officer shoots a
black person in the performance of his duties it is racist,
but when a black person says he wants to shoot white cops
it isn’t. If it isn’t Obama’s fault, he sure is pouring
gasoline of the flames.
Instead of channeling all this hate towards people who
mean you no harm these people should look at the people who
are lying to them and pulling their strings. You may
remember Obama’s speech after the event where he claimed to
“state the facts”. He did make them sound horrendous.
On July 9, 2016, the following was written in the Wall
“In 2015 officers killed 662 whites and Hispanics, and
258 blacks…There were 6,095 black homicide deaths in
2014- the most recent year for which such data are
available- compared with 5,397 homicide deaths for whites
and Hispanics combined. Almost all of those black homicide
victims had black killers.”
Confused yet? Of course speaking the truth wouldn’t help
