Thoughts On The Ferguson Issue by John Lengemann

 

            "A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest" wrote Paul Simon over 30 years ago in his song "The Boxer."  That describes much of what's taken place in Ferguson, Missouri. 

 

            From the time Michael Brown was killed until now the media, the President and the protesters have heard what they wanted to hear.  From the beginning the media [principally the left wing leaning media] told a tale that fit the template…

The election is finally over by B. T.

The election is finally over. The votes have been counted and more importantly the phone calls have stopped.

If they did, they had the opportunity to grant one party control of all 3 branches of government. The results are most likely due to the electorate becoming uncomfortable with the extent to which the political…
