The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Turning The Page, Some More

From The Wall Street Journal we have this analysis by Kim Strassel.  The thrust of the column is that the Obama Campaign and the Democratic Party were rattled by the response to the Roanoke speech, which was much stronger than the apparent response to Prof Elizabeth Warren's earlier version.  Here is a snippet from the article:
Witness the first president to demean the bedrock American beliefs in industriousness and exceptionalism.  The "context" only makes it worse.
But there is pushback to the WSJ article (New York Magazine), and it is ugly.  The specter of racism is raised.

It s going to be a long three months to the General Election.

I'm not hear to portray conservatives as racists. I know the poison of racism crosses all stripes.

That said, please hear this.

The "you didn't build that," to some, rang as a justification for reparations. Further still, the concept, though rooted in slavery, has grown into a class action.

The racists fear that "you didn't build that" is a dog whistle that means "we are coming to take it away."

If by "taxation" you think "reparations," you would be wrong. If you figure, stop the middle class from withering on the vine, you'd be much closer to whatever truth resides in our wild and wonderful American melting pot

I would gladly have the Nation pay reparations, to be done with it, if we could only find the one person, or small committee, that could grant absolution for all times—and I am not referring to Brigadier General Charles Conham, of the 8th Infantry Division; "These are my credentials".

Not me. Slavery wasn't an American invention. We strive for a "more
perfect Union."

We all have grievances. There is no measurimg stick for human rights. We try to reach consensus.

Thus, we must move forward. Lean in.
