Rahm Emanuel, former Obama Administration Chief of Staff
 
It did not take long for President Obama to use the tragic police ambush in Dallas, TX to push his gun control agenda. In fact, in his first statement on the shocking murder of 5 police officers, Obama introduced the issue. After condemning the “senseless murders” of the police officers, the President said, “We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons; unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic. And in the days ahead we’re going to have to consider those realities as well.”

President Barak Obama took the stage in Charlotte, North Carolina on July 5, 2016, just hours after FBI Director James Comey described Hillary Clinton’s handling of U.S. State Department documents as “extremely careless.”  Obama said Hillary was a “great” U.S. Secretary of State.  But Obama says this with a strange caveat: “People believed that Hillary was a great U.S. Secretary of State “before the whole political machinery got moving.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.
