Good comments. Nwar.


I am passionate about the environment. To me the problem is not abstract. I have a child who suffers from the effects of toxins so I don't find pollution to be amusing. I find the multibillionaire princes of pollution and their protégée Cotton to be the most despicable people in Ameria today.

TomN did a nice job of describing the societal forces which lead to unrest. Pobucker did also.

I think the cop either got scared or mad and shot too many ted. He should no longer be a cop. However, the guy he shot was no angel. Trayvon, on the other hand, did not deserve to be shot. Trayvon's death was a tragedy.

Why Hillary got it right August 19, 2014 at 5:57 a.m.

We are keeping out of wars, my 401k is way up, and the economy is improving. Bo is doing a decent job. Anytime ypu can accomplish results without boots on the ground, you should. Hillary needs to watch herself.

Regurgitation of what? That is all me. I've not read a peep about sugar. I just looked at his donations. Why is the sugar industry so behind Cotton? When I drive across Arkansas, I see soybeans, rice, cottons etc.--not sugar cane. I think he just must be the cheapest politician in the country to buy.

Top 10 reasons to vote for Cotton (if you agree with the following):

1. The federal government should not provide assistance for disaster relief.

2. the United States can make peace between the Shiites and the Sunnis by more military intervention.

3. Hedge fund managers should be taxed only 15% on their millions while lawyers and doctors pay 35%.

4. Multimillionaires should enjoy large tax loopholes to evade taxes.

5. College costs for the poor and the middle class should go up.

6. Sugar companies should be able to hide the contents on packaging by using deceptive labeling.

7. Clean air and water are unimportant, and companies should be able to discharge as much waste as they wish.

8. Social security, Medicare, and Medicaid should be gutted and more money should be spent on the Defense industry.

9. Farm aid should end, and we need to try to win in Afghanistan. And

10. Let's cut school lunches; let the little urchins starve.

Of course, the police department should hire more blacks. This does not excuse the violent nature of the protests and the looting.

This case is very different from the Trayvon Martin case. Trayvon was minding his own business, buying skittles and walking home when some white dude with a gun (not a cop) racially profiled him and started following him. Zimmerman was a nut case.

In this instance, some thug who had just stolen cigars and assaulted a shop clerk was walking down the middle of the road and blocking traffic. Of course, we must investigate whether the police officer used excessive force and should be charged for an offense. However, the police officer should not be prejudged as racist or a murderer based upon the testimony of the other thief.

A vote for Tom Cotton is a vote for more foreign wars, higher education costs, a smaller middle class, misleading labels re sugar contents, more pollution, and more tax loopholes for billionaires and hedge fund managers. The Defense Industry, Sugar, Polluters, and Hedge fund managers are not giving him millions for nothing.

Having viewed the film of the angry bully from 10 minutes before, I'm not sure that I believe that the kid put his hands up. witnesses lie, and some of them appeared later after they heard his friend say that his hands were up. The kid in this case was 6' 4" and 292 pounds. If he was Coming toward me, I'd shoot him a few times also.

The kid in the store video looked pretty ran and violent. The cop's story should be believed. Are we now going to believe thugs over the police?
