Merry Christmas 2014???

la-sp-sn-yankees-nypd-slain-officer-20141222-001Is there “racism” in our country? Yes, though that word speaks to an environment which hasn’t existed in the U.S. for some time. It’s more a broad brush/excuse, used by some of less than honorable intent, to paint an incomplete picture of a complicated issue. Regardless, we are a nation of laws, and the murder of a uniform police officer in any civil society always represents a sign of national weakness like no other I can think of. Of the protests I would only say, “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances“, is not something we should ever take for granted. But those who exercise that right must also accept the responsibility which comes with it. Moreover, media, pundits, politicians and “community organizers” alike, should consider carefully the moral foundations of that which they purvey in the name of “We the People”.

Michael Brown and Eric Garner are still dead, and now so too are NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, their families struggling against the immense pain of loss. In the end, I believe we all know what must be done. The problem is, those real and achievable solutions of “peace on earth, good will toward men”, and the text from which we read them, are considered “politically incorrect”.

“God bless us every one”. We’re gonna need it.
