    I guess we are meant to feel sorry for Russia while they extend their borders.

    Paul, one of the leaders in what critics call the Republicans’ “isolationist wing,” on Tuesday lashed out at Republicans who favor a dramatic increase in military spending with little regard for the national deficit.

    Choose any Republican issue and you'll find the debt issue suddenly goes away. And for things they don't support? They roll out the "bankrupting our country" argument. Kinda the same way they want government to stop intruding in our lives.....unless it's to stop abortion. Or they hate big government bureaucracy....unless it's to create voter ID cards.

    If the cop were black, and the actions were the same or similar, what would the story be?

    If we were Russia we'd be blaming the riots on foreign instigators, then passing laws to take an 80% ownership stake in CNN to safeguard ourselves.

    Frungy: This isn't about Wilson, it isn't about Brown... it is about the ongoing racism and persecution of African Americans going on in the USA.

    And herein lies the problem. People want to look beyond the facts and prosecute Wilson based on historic racism. If you want to have a conversation about racism, then have it. Just don't do it as a way to judge a specific man's innocence or guilt in a very specific situation. If you want to look at history then we are all guilty no matter who we are, even if you support Brown. Any of us could find ourselves in a situation and be convicted due to history.

    It's the same with sexism. A man gets accused of sexual harassment or assault. The process starts. The feminist leaders get involved. Articles pop up about assault against women. More articles pop up talking about men who aren't prosecuted. If the man is found innocent, then those who support him are painted as sexist men who are callous to women. The case in question gets swept under the carpet.

    Brown isn't an example of racism. He was a thug who robbed a store and attacked a cop. Maybe someone else would have been in his sights if the cop hadn't stopped him. I feel duped by the sympathy I had for him before I read the testimony. I fought hard to defend Trayvon Martin who I believe was murdered in cold blood. Brown is not Martin. Brown is a piece of s***.

    Strangerland, I'm of the opinion that Brown did make movement towards the cop. The question would be if that was aggressive or not. And that will never really be proven either way.

    One witness said it was more like a stagger. The cop said it was a charge. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Who knows what was going on in Brown's body at the time, If the cop was the person people say he is, and if he has impunity, it makes no sense for him to see Brown stop and not shoot. It makes no sense for the cop to wait for him to turn around and not shoot. He would have already killed him by that point. Something happened after those two things and I don't believe it was the cop suddenly realizing that he could get away with murder.

    One difference between our opinions is that I probably give the cop more leeway due to the nature of the job and situation. When someone attacks a cop through the window of his car it gets the adrenaline flowing. As a human it's probably next to impossible to read Brown's mind and suddenly switch off all of those emotions. Maybe Brown's movement towards the cop was a surrender, but Brown himself destroyed the prospect that a reasonable person he just attacked would read it like that.

    I held off on talking about this story until now since I knew it would be a circus, but on many occasions I criticized the actions of the police force during the initial unrest. I criticized the tanks and the snipers. I criticized the cops arresting journalists. When the story about the white construction workers came out I even made a comment that it probably tips the scales to me siding with Brown. But after reading the grand jury information I changed my opinion and now I mostly side with the cop. That's to say I have zero entrenched positions and I'm not afraid to criticize the police.

    One thing Brown supporters are not talking about is that this was just a grand jury. Had an indictment come down I can't imagine there would be enough evidence to convict. Not by a mile. Instead of waiting for the riots after a trial, we are getting them now. There are some people who won't be satisfied unless the cop is found guilty.

    According to testimony from Wilson in documents released from the Grand Jury proceedings, Wilson shot Brown twice. Brown ran away. Wilson pursued. Brown stopped and turned around, and Wilson shot him. And everyone agrees that Brown was unarmed.

    Brown stopped and turned around. Then he started to move towards the cop. The cop told him to stop. Brown did not stop. The officer shot.

    The only question in my mind is what Browns mental state was at that point. He was likely out of his mind. He had just robbed a store, wrestled with a cop through a car window, and been shot. Who knows what he was thinking when he did not stop. He might have been staggering forward as one witness described, and not charging.

    strangerland: Chasing down and shooting an unarmed man who has already been shot and is trying to escape is not morally justifiable. Apparently is legally justifiable in the US, but US laws have always been screwed up.

    Sigh. That didn't happen.

    I was of the opinion that the officer was out of line, but after reading through the statements it doesn't appear that is the case. One man makes a compelling argument that Brown looked like he was in a state of confusion after the shots and could have been arrested at that point, but that gets muted by the overall chaos of the situation.

    The most compelling statements comes from witnesses that came forward after the initial reports were released. They wanted to set the record straight about the lies that were being told like Brown surrendering, being on his knees, saying he gave up. All lies.

    The media isn't helping. The Huff Post, one of my favorite rags, has a headline saying that Brown said he gave up. But the actual article is about the conflicting nature of the testimony. Even the lady who provided the headline got it wrong by saying there were 2 cops in the car. A more honest headline would talk about conflicts in statements and how a lot of the statements weren't backed up by physical evidence. But if you just scan the headline you are made to think the police just ignored her.

    The biggest problem is that the U.S. doesn't know how to have a mature conversation about race. It's always done with accusations and inflammatory rhetoric. And you have the usual with people giving their opinions without taking the time to read the grand jury documents. Now we are seeing opinions of famous people who obviously didn't read the evidence and that bugs me. It will just make things worse.

    The same goes for Obama, if he were NOT Black, he would have probably been impeached by now

    Utterly fascinating to hear how the center of the Republican bubble is handling the issue.

    I knew the GOP would have to change their tune on impeachment. Outside of the bubble everyone knew there was no case, but inside the GOP leaders told their base that a case was there but they didn't have the votes in a Democratic Senate. Once the Senate results were in I figured they'd have to invent a new reason and apparently this is it. (I always thought it was funny how the House would vote dozens of times to "symbolically" repeal Obamacare but couldn't muster a single vote for impeachment.)

    So the party that invented birthers, who still have a sizable number of people who think Obama is Muslim, who shut down the government and tried to create chaos by defaulting on the debt, who passed openly racist voter suppression laws, who vowed to do everything to make him a one term president, who froze nominations, who uses a record number of filibusters, who manufactured Benghazi outrage, is suing the President, etc.....this party can't go forward with an obvious impeachment because Obama is black?

    Bass, that might be the greatest thing you've ever written.

    By the way, what is the bubble saying about the latest Benghazi report? Obviously it can't be accepted if the (black) President or Hillary isn't directly responsible. So what mental gymnastics are you using for this issue?
