    Well Ellyahnna, it would behoove you not to sound too conspiratorial as you'll end up having the thought police try and ban you.

    You have factions in this country that will never let a good confrontation or tragic incident go to waste because they all have an agenda. I suppose that statement I just made is on the conspiratorial side, but it's true. I would imagine there are rabble-rousers on both sides trying to stir up emotional turmoil to make their particular points.

    Watch and see as Ferguson is kicked to the curb after a while and replaced by the Middle East or some other part of the world where individuals have some sort of interest. Remember, you are just a commodity to be used, and extorted for what you have in your wallet. So when we have an incident in this country that stirs up those deep-seated emotions and you want to do something, take out your checkbook and start writing because that's what they all want.

    It doesn't matter why a particular situation happened, whether it's children gunned down, women raped, race related riots and race related murders. I've seen plenty of big talkers with plenty of big ideas supposedly, and that's about all they are. The supposed enlightened liberal groups somehow feel they are on the right side for the most part. I looked at my email this morning and found at least 10 different requests to give a credit card number to some petitioner because they can make a difference.

    Because you've seen these things, you know in your heart, the only way to facilitate change is by your own personal blood, sweat and tears. Take the example of Martin Luther King, or for that matter, even Jesus Christ, they campaigned against man's inhumanity to man, and they both paid the ultimate price, along with many others. They fought against the religious and secular establishments and they knew they would end up paying that ultimate price.

    There is no their side or our side, there is just the right side!
