  • Claim of Iraq WMDs is a bipartisan blame game
    Will the Journal Gazette letter-writing political hacks ever tire of blaming George W. Bush for all of Iraq’s problems; e.g., Tim Tiernon’s letter in the July 17 issue. Tiernon apparently has a short memory.
  • Intelligence, instinct beat diversity in firefighting
    Is Fire Chief Eric Lahey a firefighter or a social engineer? I think he should be fired. There is no other way to deal with someone who is as blinded by race as he obviously is.
  • Among Hoosier politicians, ambition tops common sense
    We used to be rather proud of Indiana and its hardworking, common-sense people. Maybe not so much anymore.There are those among us who want to rewrite our nation’s Constitution.

Web letter by Rich Polk: Zimmerman verdict fails to fulfill prevailing left agenda

Enough! What the H is wrong with this country? I’ll tell you: The USA has become so emotionally attached to the far-left liberal philosophy of “anything goes” as long as it portrays blacks as victims that reason and logic are ignored and “facts” conveniently spun to fit the far left agenda. What a pathetic indictment on the current state of affairs.

Anyone with a lick of common sense knows that the prosecution did not come close to proving its case against George Zimmerman. Why all the uproar? It’s again the liberal far left pushing its agenda of turning this country into a European nanny state.; to never miss an opportunity to create and exploit a crisis. The Trayvon Martin protests are only an excuse to raise hell, vandalize and promote leftist socialist causes.

Tell me – tell anyone! – Where is the outrage (an overworked word, for sure!) over the killings of blacks (by blacks) every single day in President Barack Obama’s sweet home Chicago? Not a peep from the left. There is absolute silence from the leftist mouthpieces like Reuters, AP (short for Administration Press), so-called mainstream TV and newspaper media, Black Caucus, Jackson, Sharpton, Holder, et. al. ad nauseum.

And why is that? Simple answer: In Chicago it’s black on black whereas the Left feeds on blacks as victims of whites, Hispanics and probably one of these days, Martians. The so called free press is in bed with the left, as are many of our educators, those in the legal system and celebrities, to list a few.

The country is in a mess, and the tweeters, Facebookers, texters and bloggers with way too much time on their hands are having a field day disrupting and destroying the very moral, social, governing, religious, personal privacy ideals that have been, up to now, the very foundations of the country.

Wake up, America, and see and acknowledge what is happening to me, to you, to “US”!
