Snowden is a patriot
I look forward to Larry Jones’ column in the Weatherford Democrat each week and almost always agree with him. He is a distinguished veteran and a sterling individual. However, I do not agree with his assessment of Edward Snowden. I feel that Mr. Snowden is a patriot of the first order.
Federal government agencies are clearly trampling all over the Constitution by spying on American citizens who are accused of no crime(s). The Fourth Amendment in particular is being violated.
I paraphrase Thomas Jefferson: “Any people who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither.”
For the Republic,
Many questions few answers
“Let me just tell you, with the amount of black on black crime in America, I get nervous and I’m a black man.” A quote from Juan Williams.
“Jesse Jackson once spoke of turning around nervously when he heard footsteps behind him, worrying about robbery, only to feel relief upon seeing a white person.” A quote from Jesse Jackson:
Are these people racist or just racial profiling. Do you think George Zimmerman chased Trayvon Martin down and tackled him? There are a lot of if’s involved in this tragedy. If George Zimmerman had stayed in his vehicle? If Trayvon had not been suspended from school? This tragedy would not have happened.
This nation will never get past racism, as long as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton can make a living stirring up unrest. Folks claim that the high rate of crime in the black communities, is because of poverty and lack of money for education. In my opinion you can spend all the money in the world on education, but until you have discipline in the homes and in the schools, things will not change. The amount of money that has been spent on poverty, every poor child should be a rocket scientist, and I include all races in that category. It never ceases to amaze me, that humans are supposed to be the intelligent species, and they can’t see what drugs do to them. If America is still a racist nation, how did we elect a white African. If George Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, why is it that President Obama is not a white African. Both had a white parent. If President Obama had been a conservative, he would be a felon for smoking weed and doing a little blow.
