My time is finite and precious. Therefore I don't waste it.
I've had several inquiries about my opinion about Ferguson and it basically boils down to the Alcoholics Prayer where "grant me the wisdom to know what I can and cannot change." And Ferguson cannot be changed.
A thug was killed by a cop.
That thug happened to be black and the cop white.
The black community in Ferguson, programmed to hate and view everything in terms of race did not see it as one less criminal in their neighborhood, but an act of racism. They viewed last night's verdict as additional proof to their oppression and went to the streets to protest, destroying their own neighborhood, looting things that weren't theirs, ensuring no serious employer or business ever sets up shop there again, further condemning themselves to a life of secondary citizenry.
My political analysis of this is
When something new or interesting happens, let me know. Ferguson was entirely predictable, but more importantly, not solvable. Ergo, I don't care how many thousands of hours of political coverage and analysis ensues, not one minute of it will be anything new or productive. You might as well be watching Maury Povich or Jerry Springer. Matter of fact, my little piece here is about the only thing you really need to read about Ferguson.
So I recommend you view Ferguson like I do - your life is too short and too valuable to waste a second on it. Do something else instead like watching a good documentary, spending time with your family, learning a new skill or teaching yourself how to enjoy the decline.
