Pressure Nixon to Appoint a Special Prosectuter.

As I understand it, Gov. Nixon can appoint a special prosecutor and we should pressure him to do so.

The concept of "Double Jeopardy" does not apply here. Wilson did not go before a jury of his peers. He was simply not indicted. That does not mean a subsequent prosecutor cannot bring charges.

Wow, when you lose Nancy Grace you're really screwed. (VIDEO) Feruguson.


Nancy Grace joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin to discuss the Ferguson grand jury decision Wednesday afternoon and she had a lot to say about Officer Darren Wilson’s version of the story, which has finally come out through his testimony and interviews. According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.”


Former prosecutor turned CNN screaming banshee Nancy Grace took on the grand jury findings in the Michael Brown case. She found the prosecutor McCulloch not to be a very good prosecutor and Darren Wilson to not be very honest.

Apparently, she does have some ethics with which I formerly did not credit her. Her total frustration over the way the prosecutor handled the grand jury in the Brown case is evident.

Go Investigate Something Real!’ CNN Anchor and Ferguson Protestor Clash

This CNN anchor is an ass. He's exactly why people of color are so upset. Old white guys like him (I'm an old white but I'm not like him). Especially anchors who want to create sensationalist video clips.

He shows no compassion and absolutely no understanding how bad life in Ferguson is for young African-American males. I don't blame the young man for being angry.

Video at the link:


The dumbest ass thing the anchor said was why don't we all take a breath and let things blow over. NO, FUCKING NO!!!!!!! You'd love that. Then this could fall out of the media like Newtown did.

Those citizens of Ferguson need to keep protesting peacefully.

My biggest fear is the KKK and the police, who are rumored to be associated with the KKK, will incite something. That they will either incite fights or they will do some kind of major bombing and shooting and try to make it look like it was the protesters. That whole "false flag" thing that has gotten the US into wars in the past.

Quick Pickling Recipies - anyone have one the really like. Tips are also appreciated.

I'm going to a friend's place for t-giving and want to make a relish tray. I thought it might fun to quick pickle the veggies rather than just buy a bunch of jars and only open lids. I want to put out a little more effort than that.

I found several by Googling. Most of make the pickling brine with equal parts of water and apple cider vinegar. I always love our fresh cucumbers from the garden soaked in vinegar.

Any tips and cautions are also appreciated.

ON EDIT: I do know to remove the seeds and guts of the jalapenos so the veggies won't get too hot.

The SCOTUS Fucking-Five

I've been using the term "Fucking-Five" in my recent posts to refer to Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia and Kennedy.

In the past I have advocated for using the word "Fuck" less on this site. I'll have to say with respect to the Fucking-Five I respectfully withdraw my argument to not use the word "Fuck."

Please feel free to use the term "SCOTUS Fucking-Five" in your posts here and elsewhere. I'm very certain everyone will understand.

I Really Hope the GOP Follows Cruz's Playbook.

Ted Cruz has said a GOP Senate should be like the GOP House. Hearings on the Obama Administration non-stop. Possibly impeachment.

I hope they do this because I think it will sour the general electorate, the independents in particular, in time for the 2016 elections.

The economy and jobs are all on you now GOP. No Democratic Senate to blame.

It is going to be a long two years until 2016.
