    In all the media coverage of the riots in Ferguson, an annoying false premise has been allowed to stand as though it were an unquestionable truth. Talking heads on the left and right are saying while rioting is not the way, there is a need for change in America. What the heck change are they talking about?

    By embracing the “need for change” premise promoted by Al Sharpton and company, the media is complicit in spreading the lie that America is racist and blacks are mistreated. For crying out loud, folks, look around. Blacks are thriving in this country. Those who aren't are those who made poor choices. And they are the ones tearing up their own neighborhoods. Enough!

    Just because they happened simultaneously, it does not mean they were one and the same.

    Had to pick "other", it's apples vs. un-named alien fruit yet to be discovered.

    Comparing either of these in the same breath is insanity personified.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It starts out as a protest due to false information spread by the media and race hustlers ratcheting up the rhetoric. Add to the mix professional agitators of activist groups from Democratic Socialists of America, to Nation of Islam, to union thugs, to Occupy Wallstreet, all with a political agenda, and no sooner a protest begins it turns into a riot by design.

    As far as I'm concerned, I would have been happy to see a stand off between the Bundy Ranch protestors and the Ferguson protestors - shoot out until last man standing - Darwin at his finest and whole bunch of mentally deficient mouth breathers disposed of lickety-split.

    This protest was not due to false information. It is due to what is perceived as injustice in the 'justice system'. It starts with the cops and ends with the courts. There is credence to this attitude whether you agree with it or not.

    Oh yes it was due to false information spread by the media. And the perception of injustice of the justice system was the goal of those activist groups involved in wanting to "change" this country. By tearing down another institution that this country was built upon inches them closer to that change they desire.

    What credence? I'd like to hear it. Let me guess, your going to break out stats that show black males being arrested and convicted at higher rates than whites but fail to point out that most of the crimes they are being arrested and convicted for are against other blacks. Or you are going to bring up that Ferguson is 70% black but has a mostly white police force but fail to point out that blacks simply don't apply to be police officers. If that's what you're going to use, it's bogus. If you've got something else, I'd like to hear it.

    No one is looking to tear down any institution(s). That is hyperbole. The goal is to make the justice system 'just'.

    "Just" based on what? Public opinion? No thanks.
