Comey waded into the thorny issues at play in a speech Friday at the University of Chicago Law School, his alma mater. He has expressed worry about the spike in the number murders in some cities, and for the first time said it could be at least partly linked to what he called a "chill wind" police are facing in the wake of Ferguson. "Far more people are being killed in America's cities this year than in many years -- and let's be clear: far more people of color are being killed in America's cities this year. And it's not the cops doing the killing," Comey said.Perfect realism, perfect truth. The only thing missing is the pointed finger of blame. Who's responsible for this chill wind? Eric Holder and Al Sharpton, and ESPECIALLY the genocidal media who continue to commit Sharpton's murders without any specific orders from Sharpton. Comey doesn't really need to name those names. Everyone knows.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
