I've been reading a lot about Hillary's trip to Chipotle and some have criticized this as a foolish focus on the irrelevant. I disagree, though I do think most of the writers are missing the real meaning and nuance of the story.
As I'm sure everyone knows five Colorado counties have voted to secede from the state of Colorado. We're about to see a 51st state! Its a logical reaction to the partisan split that's overtaking the country. But its not as simple as it sounds.

Nine-year old Jamyla Bolden was murdered by a gunshot as she was doing homework on a couch in her mother's home on August 18th. The community responded by offering emotional support and sponsoring a fundraiser at a local restaurant. They also held marches protesting the death. During the marches pleas for any witnesses to the crime to come forward were made. A witness did come forth. A second witness stated that the accused admitted to the crime. An arrest was made.
Contrary to popular belief, the black community does care about crime in their neighborhoods. Support is offered to grieving families. Suspects are arrested if there is enough evidence. If convictions occur, people go to prison. Justice is served.
Three teams of forensic scientists have found that the Planned a Parenthood videos were manipulated. Even the so-called full length video was altered.
After Shirley Sherrod and ACORN, we should expect MSM to be more cautious in spreading the lies of those on the Religious Right. We should also expect more of ourselves. When the Right pushes this nonsense, we should note that they have lied before and that we need more proof.
Facts do not matter to the Right, so we can expect continued efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in state legislatures and Congress. Cruz may still want a government shutdown.
