This is the Sunday Morning Talk Show Thread Ping List! If you want to be on it, reply to this post or FReepmail me (in case I miss it). If you want to be taken off, simply send me a FReepmail.

Last week it was ALL about Iraq and ISIS... This week that issue, which focused too much on an inept president, is completely swept off the table to focus on Ferguson, Missouri.

Morning AB, All

Been another awful week for me, but I am fine. Two words, Munchausen syndrome…...two words stabbing my life severely.

Anyway, I sign in today because, as always, I enjoy this thread and do like to watch the Sunday talk shows.

Thank you AB, for doing this thread. As always you provide the links and guests and monitor us quite fairly.

Like you all, I have been watching the events in Missouri. You know what I think?

Obama’s busy fundraising cause he knows the Dems are going to take a beating this coming election. He’s got to raise da money before the hatchet falls down and the public shows, at the voting booths, what they think of him.

So he’s asking those people in Missouri to hold back on the details of the “gentle giant’s” crimes. The cop who shot him is in hiding and this too is part of the plan.

This way they get Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson their day in the racist sun, Obama’s voters get a couple of days of outrage until the truth comes out.

Yeah, I think this is all part of the plan.

“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 NIV

This week the Marxist Media once again proved how they never report the news, but only promote their agenda as they reported the two big stories of the week. Their miserable detailing of the Robin Williams death and the Michael Brown shooting are once again showing their dedication to sharing their world view of America rather than searching for the truth. We all now know how loved and adored both Robin Williams and Michael Brown were and were both taken down by a racist oppressive capitalist society, at least that is what the Three Pillars (media, academia and the DNC) are painting.

Having no affinity for Robin Williams or his talents gives me an objective view of what happened with this tragedy. Some of us saw him as more of an annoyance than a comedic genius, from the character he invented as Mork who lived with the really cute chick Mindy to Popeye. The whole character seemed forced and he was just another angry vehicle to make fun of the American lifestyle. All of his characters were smug and arrogant whose main theme was tearing down America and the mores which were the foundation of this society. He seemed to be a very dark and empty human being as he ripped everyone’s lives while having no alternative other than the planet Ork.

Why is there no real curiosity about his suicide? Of course the Marxist lifestyle while living in the homes worth tens of millions is pure hypocrisy, the morality he promoted was emptiness. Sure he was an addict to cocaine and alcohol as is most of Hollywood, but what else was he addicted to that was so destructive he would risk death? Why did he check into a rehabilitation clinic the last month of his life only to end up dead? The giant elephant in the room that nobody is asking is why was he found partially clothed in a sitting position? How many people would commit suicide that way when there were plenty of drugs or a beam you could hang yourself from? Why would you hang yourself while sitting in a chair, unless he was experimenting with something truly addicting that could kill him and did? Was Robin Williams into autoerotica and was he its latest victim? Was it really pornography he was addicted to? Oh, we can’t ax those questions because he was a Hollywierd icon.

These are questions an honest media would be asking if for no other reason than to eliminate the possibilities but let’s stay with depression and suicide. What is the other large issue is how this guy was one of the true believers of the Marxist movement in America and both funded and lobbied hard for Obama and after all the damage he helped cause, checks out. With all that so called genius he could never put together that at the heart of his financial problems was the destruction of America and its economic engine. He as much as anybody in HomoWood promoted the ridiculing and dismantling of the economic foundation of this country and then was depressed when his cash cow was dead. He advanced the Marxist agenda to where we are now and then once it proved to be a failure he commits suicide leaving the rest of us to suffer.

All of his movies had a deep dark message in them. Even the lighthearted Mrs Doubtfire has him fighting to see his children, but in the end he cannot keep the marriage going and becomes a good dad. No, a good dad sticks it out and keeps his word to his marriage. Mork is a guy who lives out of wedlock with a girl and he eventually gets pregnant with an alien baby. Now he is the mother and she is the father. His humor was never the type you could enjoy or laugh at ironies of life they were always making fun of America and Americans which is why he was so loved in Hollywood and by the Three Pillars who are mourning his loss. His only real loss is that he believed in the liberal cult and in the end it is an empty promise leading to depression and nothingness which is where he ended up.

The truly sad thing about Robin Williams is that he had a possibility to do some real good with his talents and he simply took the easy route of being a hate filled liberal. His professional life was only accentuated by his personal life where he took every opportunity to bash Conservatives. It may have endeared him to the liberal establishment, but there is a large population he was bashing who went to see his movies that he was offending. So when America finally tired of Mork there was nobody left to go see him and this movie icon was left to polish his awards while walking the empty halls of his multi-million dollar mansions while the money dried up. That is when he turned back to his old demons and tragedy happened. These are the questions an objective media would be uncovering to save the next tragic victim.

The exact same thing happened with the Michal Brown shooting. The racist media had to have another poor innocent black child killed by racist whitey and they found it with Brown. There was no questioning of why the officer had to shoot him or any sort of investigation, the police officer was guilty as charged and he had to prove otherwise. This was no journalistic effort to uncover a story this was about lynching a racist cop and let the facts be ignored. The same Three Pillars tearing down America to promote their Marxist agenda. It didn’t matter what the facts were, they had a dead black kid shot by a white cop and it had to be racism.

Once the story was reported in that manner even though the investigation had just begun, they brought in the Reverend Al Sharpie and the race riots were on. This is what they wanted and what the president was hoping for. Take all of those scandals off the news and replace them with fire hoses and attack dogs going after the poor blacks. Stir up the blacks and put that on TV because they have another poor defenseless black child being shot by the man.

A funny thing happened on the way to the lynching, the poor little cherub was 6’ 4” and weighed 300 lbs looking more like a defensive lineman than a teddy bear. Then the little issues of pictures of him flipping the bird and mugging a store owner to steal some cigars. Suddenly the nice little picture the Marxist Media was painting had a few brushstrokes going the wrong direction. Then, Drudge found the fact that their little angel tried mugging the cop and was stealing his gun when he was shot. Rather than being responsible and saying if you don’t want to get shot, don’t try to take a gun from a cop; they ignored it and blamed the officer doing his impossible job. Anybody no matter what your color or income level, if you are not yes sir and no sir to a cop you are asking for trouble and if you are fighting with him you are begging to be shot which he was. This was nothing more than a justified shooting being painted by an agenda driven media to ignite the blacks to riots.

These are two more examples showing how corrupt our media is. Sure it would be hard for them to ask hard questions of both these deaths because it upsets their status quo. And of course they have to follow the group think to a point, but when does the American people deserve the truth? They are the ones paying the salaries of these dishonest recorders of history. How does a media ignore the most basic questions of these stories of why does a man who has everything they say is success develop such massive depression he kills himself and exactly how did he kill himself? How do these reporters not have any sympathy for an officer who was forced to kill this out of control kid who likely outweighed him by 50-100 lbs? Where is a journalist in America who will report the truth about how these two men died?

Pray America wakes up

Bray,

I LOVED your treatise on Robin Williams.

As a mother of a child who ALWAYS threatens suicide, I see nothing good about killing yourself.

Robin Williams bought nothing to the table and then killed himself that his wife and children must live with. Living with suicide/suicide threats is a horrible thing.

I too think there is way more to Williams’ suicide than we’ve been told.

We should boo hoo for a rich guy who lived in a mansion and has a wonderful career?

Y’all can but I won’t.

The Brown shooting is just plan dumb.The officer should have tazed him until he turned green.As for his burglary where he pushed the store clerk he stole Swisher cigars according to Rush in order to load them with weed after removing the tobacco.

Another Trayvon trying to get high in good ol' gangsta style.Both were criminal ganstas. Tase these beasts until they submit and then put them in a cell with an even bigger bubba who likes younger meat.

As for Williams he was a comedic genius. Anyone in broadcasting had to acknowledge his genius. Its so sad tosee so many of these hollywood types get so deep into drugs. I never knew he was addicted to coke ad he played Mork.

Put him together in a room with Johnathan Winters--as happened often, and you had the two best brilliant minds in comedy perhaps ever.

Sad to see him go. Perhaps his recent surgery which causes depression and his advancing parkinsons were both contributors. The country is worse off for his demise.

Rick Perry. This is the guy who told us peons out here in la-la land that we should be ashamed for not inviting the illegals in with open arms.

Oh yeah! That’s when he was running for the Republican presidential nomination wasn’t it? When he wanted the money from the chambers of commerce?

Now that he sees what those unguarded borders-which was supposed to be taken care of the LAST time we granted mass amnesty to some five million-he sings a different tune.

Here’s my comment on Ferguson - so far these issues are NOT be addressed....

Store owners WITHOUT police protection in Ferguson should to sue the city.

All who pay taxes for our local police department to babysit the black communities should also sue.

It’s wrong.

I don’t pay an ‘average’ power bill - shared with the liberal elite in his mansion - they guy who uses more energy to heat his swimming pool than I use to heat my house.

He pays his power bill - I pay mine.

It should be the same with police protection. Tack the charge onto people’s electric bills or water bills. Charge by city block.

If living near criminals cost money - the black culture’s attitude toward crime will change.

Here in Texas we have our share of issues with BOTH - Gov. Perry and the Lt. Gov. who lost in the Republican primary. The Lt. Gov. of Texas has a huge amount of influence in the legislative process.

Gov. Perry has had MANY boneheaded moments over his FOUR terms as Gov.

1. The Trans-Texas corridor - Eminent domain to run a highway from El Paso to Oaklahome
2. Vaccine mandate for 14-15 year old girls (STD related)
3. Gov & Lt. Gov. worked to pass a Franchise tax - A tax on small business - One of the main reasons the Lt. Gov. lost in the primary

Texas has been a Blue dog state and Perry was a Blue dog

They'll just move to safer neighborhoods, and bring the crime with them.

the black culture’s attitude toward crime will change.

The "black culture" needs to change.

I was watching a British TV crime drama called "Luther"...a black detective in London. After seeing some of the English blacks and their mannerisms, I turned to my wife and asked; "Why can't we have black people like that?"

It appears Obama feels he’s primarily “President of Black Americans”. That’s so divisive. So disappointing.

Maybe this is why Obama didn’t care about Benghazi... no black people were killed.

The facts surrounding the shooting are not yet in, I would reserve judgement

I personally have been on the wrong end of a phyco cop on drugs gun who ran into a covenience store and was ready to blow me away for no reason but was stopped by two of his fellow officers who dragged him out of there leaving myself an the shop keeper bewildered

Not likely this was the case here, but the truth about the shooting has yet to be established

You're right, of course.

Suppose the cop DID over-react and shoot the guy when he maybe should have tased?

We DO know that the gentle giant got into fisticuffs in the guy's police vehicle, that he tried to take his gun.

Actually blacks are just more tools/fools for the regime. They use blacks as easily as others. You can't bring in millions of Hispanics on a vote buying crusade and let them take over primarily black held jobs without pissing a few blacks off. Some of them start to get it after a while.

No opportunity tied with Democrat vote buying. We have said all along about the Democrat’s Stimulus bill-tax credits and shovel ready jobs wasn’t broad enough as actual tax cuts would have been.

Voting Democrat is get free government benefits while giving up jobs. Opportunity Cost is omitted.

There have been many allegations against Perry but little fire where all the smoke is.This current hit on him appears to be totally political, IMHO. This lady was drunk out of her mind! Perry is justified in what he is doing, IMHO.

When it comes to show biz, I have the ability to divorce my own politics when it comes to assessing/enjoying actors and actresses, musicians and creative writers.

But leftie stand-up comics generally leave me flat—so I assume the politics is influencing me.

So, while I still greatly admire work done by flaming lefties like Alec Baldwin (Hunt for Red October), Linda Ronstadt (just about all of it but especially the stuff with Nelson Riddle), and Paddy Chayefski (Network, The Hospital), the best I can say about a guy like Williams is that I appreciate how much many people (rodguy included) liked him and saw him as a “genius” — but that I’d be inclined to side with bray in the end. The butt of his joke was inevitably America and, to me, that ain’t funny.

I think you're right about that... Democrats treat blacks like the abused wife who has no other place to go... And you're right about a lot of blacks starting to question democrat's “words” when they can see their actions. And those ‘actions’ don't line up with what they're saying.

Hispanics will take entry level jobs from blacks because they're willing to work for less to stay here. Democrat have decided to pit the two groups against each other... each group competing for scraps liberal elites toss them.

It's disgusting... and it's not our way. This country's more gracious than that - or used to be...

They'll just move to safer neighborhoods, and bring the crime with them.

Yeah, maybe a move here and a move there... but after a while moving grows old. The 'charm' and glamor of the 'hood' will disappear with this system. because it will cost too much. Natural incentives work...

So guys, below a snippet of an email I just received. Forgive me for lack of humility but I needed a ray of sunshine soooooooo bad and this is it.

Also looks like I might get free tickets to some events. Yeah I ask for them because hey, I'm going, I write about it, I give them publicity (when I put up a post it takes many minutes to get back into the site)...so somebody should pay my way.

Heh.

Anyway....well this part of my life has been going well for me, let yon reader think I am loosing my happiness. Got a great story about a local guy arrested the day AFTER his election-prosecution led by Beau BIDEN-and I wrote a great piece about him. Did because a)-everything I wrote was true and b)I took a stand. Maybe more on this later

Pat,

Not sure I told you, but it was so comforting to receive your handshake last Monday night after my little talk at the GOP meeting. The look in your eyes, coupled with your firm handshake told my spirit, "everything is gonna be alright". I wish I could bottle you and sell to every good candidate I meet. We'd be gazillionaires. ....

FYI...I'll be arriving late to the debate, well right on time, as I will be coming from the Teen Challenge Crab Feast and Watermelon Extravaganza at Trap Pond. I hope to see you at both events. If you don't have tickets yet, I know folks who have extra to both and would love to see them put to good use.

Using fear of the police as a motivator too.

Even when I was a liberal I didn’t find his humor funny. Imagine the coverage if it were Clint Eastwood had killed himself and how they would be investigating every question to destroy his character.

No doubt he won some Academy Awards which have become Nobelized, but I can’t think of one of his movies I enjoyed. Being a Marxist has its advantages in Hollywood and being a conservative can get you blacklisted.

Missed the Sunday morning shows.

Stayed up late watching the online streams of the Ferguson showdown. The Gov had set midnight as the curfew time. Protesters challenged the police. Police, after about 40 minutes, brought in SWAT and smoke grenades and sonic cannon.

Per news on-the-ground 2 people were shot, but it was unclear whether they were bystanders, protesters, civilians and who the shooter(s) were.

By about 1:40, the rain got heavy and with the SWAT dispersals, the crowd dissipated.

Someone posted in one of the live threads that they heard the loudest protesters were a group out of Chicago.

[Paid protecters? I would not be a bit surprised. FEDs and Media seemed to want this to turn into a hot-bed situation.]
