Fires in Ferguson, Missouri

According to @Calliste 2014, “Yesterday President Barack Obama had the audacity to condemn the violent acts of the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. Has Obama forgotten how he commands American drones and the U.S. military to fire on innocent and some times guilty people in non-confrontational countries? People in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen and other countries have not attacked America or Americans. Not one bullet. Yet he commands drone attacks against “could be” terrorists and their families, including unarmed woman and children. While the Ferguson protesters have a valid reason to exert force. Not permissible but still more of a valid reason than American troops and technology killing innocent people.

Lets allow ourselves to think for a minute: Possibly the Ferguson protesters feel the need to be violent because America as a whole is a very violent country. Gun toting, same culture killing…police executing…violence breeds/ begets violence. If the leadership at the top condones violence in the international arena that leader or those leaders should expect no less within the country.

I can go on for quite some time on this subject. But join in. I would love to read your comments.”

Streets of Ferguson Smolder Day After Jury Declines to Indict | CNN.com

#michaelbrown #darrenwilson #ferguson #grandjury #hollyyan #monibasu #gregbotelho

I will read the entire transcript before I make my complete views known. In short, I believe justice was not served. A trial would have sufficed. It would have shown the world, not just Americans, the world we truly believe in our penal system of justice. Right now it seems to serve “just-us” and I do not mean just us African Americans either. ~ @CALLISTE

According to Holly Yan, Greg Botelho and Moni Basu 2014, “More than a dozen buildings charred, set ablaze in a wave of fury. Stores — many owned by locals — looted, with shattered glass covering the asphalt outside. Shell casings on the ground, having been fired by unknown shooters. Welcome to Ferguson, Missouri.

This is what Tuesday looked like in Ferguson, hours after an eruption of rage over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Many of those who took to the streets late Monday into Tuesday to vent their feelings about racial injustice — rooted in the fact that Brown was black and Wilson is white — and police violence did so peacefully. Others did not, hurling bottles, batteries and rocks at police.” Read more > http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/25/justice/ferguson-grand-jury-decision/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

O..what? O..shhh! Ok I’ll Keep It Clean O-H-I-O! Ohio State beats Michigan State.

JT Barrett scores against MSU in OSU win 49 - 37.In a rematch of last years Big Ten Championship teams, where Michigan State University’s (MSU) Spartans beat The Ohio State University’s (OSU) Buckeyes (to go on and play in and win last years Rose Bowl. This past Saturday night, in a race for a seeding in the new College Football Playoff race. #14 Ohio State met #8 Michigan State #OSUvsMSU in an away game. We knew the game would be a smash mouth, highly athletic make it or break it game. The two teams did not disappoint. The result? A great game between two great Big Ten Conference teams with Ohio State as the victors 49 – 37. ~ @CALLISTE

J.T. Barrett’s Big Night Carries Buckeyes To Statement Win Over Spartans

According to ESPN.com 2014, “Now it’s Ohio State’s turn to lobby for a berth in the college football playoff — a thought that seemed pretty far-fetched when the Buckeyes lost their quarterback and struggled through the first couple weeks of the season. With J.T. Barrett performing brilliantly in place of an injured Braxton Miller, there’s no longer any doubt who the Big Ten’s top contender is in the national title race. Barrett threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more in a sensational performance, and No. 14 Ohio State scored almost at will against Michigan State’s vaunted defense, beating the eighth-ranked Spartans 49-37 on Saturday night.

With one overwhelming offensive display, the Buckeyes re-established themselves as the Big Ten’s dominant team under coach Urban Meyer, avenged their loss to Michigan State in last year’s conference title game, and boosted their case for a berth in the sport’s new four-team playoff.” Read more > http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=400547958

Republicans Win Control Of The U.S. Senate | CNBC

#midtermelections #republicanswin #rep #everettrosenfeld @EV_RosenfeldThe U.S. Senate

According to Everett Rosenfeld 2014, “The Republican Party has taken control of the Senate, holding at least 52 seats with several more races still left to call.
The pendulum officially swung in favor of the Republicans with the projections that Joni Ernst had won an Iowa Senate seat, defeating Democrat Bruce Braley. The Republican Party also renewed its lease on the House on Tuesday night. But Tuesday night’s victories may just be the beginning for the Republicans, with some experts saying that proving themselves as capable senatorial leaders may be more challenging than actually winning the chamber.

“That’s not victory, that’s step one,” said American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Michael Strain of a GOP Senate win. “Victory comes in demonstrating to the American people that when the Republicans hold a majority in both houses, they can come together by passing a policy vision that reflects conservative principles and will help the lives of American citizens. That’s hard, and that’s a challenge.”” Read more > http://www.cnbc.com/id/102151973

Former Pig Castrator Joni Ernst Poised To Win Iowa Senate Seat For Republicans | US News | The Guardian

#joniernst #midterms2014 #theguardian #senaterace #iowa #rorycarroll

According to Rory Carroll 2014, “Joni Ernst became famous by gazing into a camera and boasting of castrating hogs on the Iowa farm where she grew up. “So when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork,” she said. The campaign ad Squeal showed images of pigs, then came her punchline. “Washington is full of big spenders. Let’s make ‘em squeal.” Even Democrats laughed. Late-night comedians spoofed it. Few, initially, took it seriously. This was back in March. Ernst was an obscure, one-term state senator scrambling in a primary against rival Republicans for the right to run for the US senate against a favoured Democrat. Now, on the eve of Tuesday’s midterm election, Democrats don’t see the joke. Ernst, 44, appears poised to win Iowa’s senate race – and possibly to deliver a senate majority to the GOP.” Read more >http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2014/nov/03/joni-ernst-pig-castrator-iowa-win-senate-republicans

@Calliste I love this Midterm election ad by Joni Ernst. Very funny, cool and true. Good stuff. Joni’s got my vote.

Have you seen Irvine Welsh’s cult-classic movie “Ecstasy”?

#irvinewelsh #ecstasy #movies #cultclassic #ukmovies #adamsinclair #kristenkreuk #billyboyd @MassimoInvest @Callistecomm

Irvine Welsh's EcstasyIn my opinion this is a good movie. Released in 2011, from the writer of the cult-classic movie “Trainspotting”, Irvine Welsh captures the essence of the ecstasy scene that was and may still be very prevalent in yesterday’s and today’s club scenes respectively. Definitely sit back with you partner and enjoy.
