The week that was

 “Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.”
– Oscar Wilde 

There are a bunch of riots happening in Ferguson, Missouri this week because a policeman shot and killed a black teenager who was most likely involved in a robbery moments before. Because nothing says “let’s protest unnecessary violence” like looting and pillaging innocent people’s property.

Illegal immigrants continue to pour in at our southern border, but no one in Washington cares because we have a place to put them now: public schools, funded by you, the taxpayer.

The left’s love of diversity was proven this week in a study that reported Democratic campaigns hire workers of a more diverse ethnic background. Their love of “equal pay” was also highlighted in the study, which revealed Dems pay black campaign workers 30 percent less than white employees, because, ???Most minority staffers get hired in campaigns in field jobs, and field jobs pay less.”

America lost two celebrities this week, Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams. May they be at peace. Another American celebrity was also lost, but he was later found out on the golf course.
