Witnesses, experts and evidence would supposedly direct the jurors to a final decision; either the return of a True Bill indictment, followed by a trial, or no charge at all.
I have spent a great deal of my holiday time reviewing every page of the Ferguson Grand Jury transcript. Should Missouri Police Officer, Darren Wilson, 28, have been indicted for first or second-degree murder or for voluntary or involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an African-American, 18-year-old, Michael Brown?
With George Pataki marking Upstate South Carolina as a must stop, it is a virtual guarantee that he will join the roster of hopefuls for the next Republican Presidential Primary.
In our complex, contemporary America, finding reasons to give thanks, especially in wake of Ferguson, are becoming more and more elusive.
December 7, 1941, the date of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is not the only ” horrific event that can be characterized, as it was at the time by President Roosevelt, as “A date which will live in infamy.” Add Monday, November 24th, to that infamous roster.
Most of what passes for newspapers these days are embarrassingly partisan rags and feature, above all else, totally irresponsible right-wing opinion detritus hardly worth a second glance. U.S. dailies are little more than Republican propaganda sheets.
Be assured of one thing. There will be a Keystone XL pipeline in your future; your very near future. The Republicans want it. The blue dogs want it. The State Department has blessed most of it.
The report was declassified August 7, but not released in total until a couple of days ago, allegedly to give assorted intelligence agencies a chance to sign off on it. If you read the entire report, it shreds every critical issue brought forth by the absurd House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
White jets and their chemtrails have replaced black helicopters as harbingers of certain climate doom. It’s the black guy in the White House and his government running dogs doing all the harm.
Our right-wing brothers and sisters who go fiddlesticks berserk over the possible presence of the dreaded Ebola, but most likely live in close proximity or downwind of a chemical that makes the largely manufactured (1 death in the U.S.?) Ebola threat look like a hangnail.
Like a snake in a woodpile, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) lies dangerously in wait to be fast-tracked to International Big Boy land where giant foreign and domestic money interests will control every aspect of U.S. trade dealings with the 11 other member countries of TPP.
Republicans blame Obama for not putting policies into effect that either (A) belonged in a fun house or (B) that the House wouldn’t pass, all while cloaked in the garb of wanting the best for their constituents.
Some view South Carolina as the reddest state in the nation. After November 4th, it just might be.
This will be my last mid-term general election contribution. At least in my state of South Carolina, it ain’t pretty.
For the first time in this mid-term election cycle, South Carolina politics suddenly got interesting. The state’s just been politically “Ervinized.”
Amidst the bad progressive karma, some good news. No matter how horrific the party policies, the Republican stranglehold on South Carolina continues. Enjoy it SC right-wing radicals; it’s your last hurrah.
I recently assessed the governor’s race and the statewide races, all squarely in the Republican column unless all that voter fraud we’ve heard so much about comes rising to the fore. I’d like to limit my next observations to the seven races for the Congressional House Seats.
There are two issues guaranteed to get the wing-nuts to the polls even if they have to crawl on their bellies over barbed wire in a typhoon. The first is anything to do with not being able to let their kids under ten play with howitzers; the second voting magnet is anything to do with the possibility that Bob and Bruce might marry.
South Carolina has the lowest percentage of women in its legislature of any state in the union. The supreme irony is that the only elected woman whose voice remotely counts in the state is arguably the worst governor in the nation, and that’s saying something.
Yes, there are some shocking behaviors being noted in great numbers of doctor’s offices. It’s an ongoing problem and these ethical lapses could impact your care and, most certainly, your pocketbook.
