We see Black Lives Matter all the time on the news, screaming about their racial hatred

To The Daily Sun,

Over recent weeks, the usual suspects from the left have surfaced expressing the usual complaints. Let me start with Patrick Wood, who is apparently incensed Republicans will not let Obama stack the Supreme Court with a Marxist socialist like himself. He is joined in this by James Veverka and others all of whom willfully disregard the words of Sen. Chuck Schumer back in 2007, saying no George W. Bush nomination would be approved. They also choose not to remember then Sen. Obama filibustering a Bush nomination. Guess what comes around goes around, right? One other thought for Pat, no senator or congressmen is appointed for life.

Bernadette Loesch apparently wants us to believe she is an authority on debt and deficit. Just a few words about that, $19 trillion national debt and somewhere over $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Doesn't take a genius to know that's not a good thing and Bernadette thinks all we have to do is tax the rich.

Her other claim is that millions still hate others because of the color of their skin. I agree; that's right, I agree. We see the Black Lives Matter all the time on the news screaming their racial hatred, calling for violence and even murder. We know the Black Panthers are are being glorified by many on the left. There is the long absent KKK (anyone seen them on the news in the past few years?) White supremacists are out there somewhere but where, again no big stories about them, but they are there, somewhere.

On another subject now, Gene Rouikier tells us about a very elderly couple wanting their mail delivered to their home not into a post office box. A very reasonable request which the P.O. Department has yet to be approved after a number of weeks. An object lesson for people who believe the government should provide our health insurance.

Another cautionary letter by David Ecklein who rightfully critiques the Democratic Party's practice of "Superdelegates" effectively nullifying the one person one vote principal our nation was founded on. Good point David, but when has that party ever respected principle?

Black lives don't matter enough for Democrat pols to risk the power & wealth built on poverty

To The Daily Sun,

Doesn't everyone agree that Black Lives Matter? Not everyone, the massive efforts (e.g., the $20 trillion spent and preferences in education and hiring) to help the poor over the last 50 years hasn't worked because the Democratic politicians and black "leaders" who influence and govern the communities that inspired the Black Lives Matter movement don't want to eliminate the black community's problems.

Booker T. Washington identified such people (like today's Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, and unfortunately Barack Obama) over 100 years ago: "There is another class of coloured (sic) people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public." "...these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."

But B.T. Washington didn't foresee that white Democratic politicians, who he saw supporting slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow Laws, would use the same formula to gain power, by feigning concern and promoting helpful-sounding policies (that actually trap people in poverty, hopelessness, and dependency).

For decades the harmful results of their policies have been evident in Democratic-controlled cities. Those destructive policies include locking students in bad and dangerous schools, tolerating lawlessness, driving away businesses and good jobs, allowing illegal alien competition for jobs, corruption, high living costs, gun controls preventing self-protection, and welfare rules that break apart families, encourage unwed motherhood, and are obstacles to self-improvement.

Black leaders and Democratic politicians harm the black community by excusing bad behavior, e.g., drugs, crime, lack of respect for life, unmarried motherhood, fathers abandoning families, joblessness, disrespect for authority, etc. Excusing bad and counterproductive behavior doesn't encourage people to change their behavior to be more successful.

The Black Lives Movement itself is counterproductive. Encouraging distrust in our police and institutions, e.g., the "hands up, don't shoot" lie, results in more crime victims, including more dead.

Because they care about everyone, conservative Republicans fight for policies and promote behaviors that enable everyone to be successful, regardless of race, one's start in life, or anything else. School choice, respect for life and property, obeying and enforcing the law, and safe neighborhoods and reasonable policies encourage business and job growth. Following the formula of obeying the law, graduating from high school, getting a job, and getting married before having children almost always leads to a decent middle class or better life.

The sad truth is that black lives don't matter enough to Democratic politicians and Black Leaders to jeopardize the power and wealth they get from keeping blacks in poverty, hopelessness, and dependency by joining conservative Republicans in the fight for policies that lead people to be successful.
