@ James Crow “…I can’t think of anything Hillary has done to make MY life worse.” The thought process which formed that sentence I just pulled from your post pretty much sums up the inherent problem so many “enlightened” Americans suffer from today. It is known as arrogant ignorance and its’ cumulative effect has sickened this country immensely. But unless those who have this inherent problem are willing to truly become enlightened then that cumulative effect will eventually explode in a profound catastrophic way. The choice belongs to us all and starts with you.

This is not a black/white issue. This an issue created by decades of governmental destruction. Throwing money at impoverished neighborhoods while the people in those neighborhoods thought that those dollars would somehow be their saviors. Instead those dollars were their demise. Generations of poverty, generations of dysfunctional school programs, and generations of family breakdown. Family breakdown often leads to mistrust and distrust in many social settings which in turn leads to social dysfunction; lending itself to gang activity, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual promiscuity and many other nefarious activities. Ben Carson is the exception, not the rule. Obama was NOT raised in an impoverished environment (other than being starved for lack of love for his country) Uneducated families live mainly in impoverished neighborhoods and their kids attend failing schools. Parents split up, kids fail and drop out. Generation after generation the cycle repeats because the people vote the same way all the time! No HS diploma; no college. No college; definitely no civil service jobs. That means POLICE OFFICERS! STOP squawking about a disproportionate number of blacks as cops and DEMAND the choice to send your kids to a good school. Don’t sit back and moan about how bad it has become. DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE! VOTE for change, Get them in a good school and ride their butts until they graduate. Then you will have more black police officers!

I am all for the cameras for one reason, it protects the officers from the he said she said argument. Second thing is in response to the disproportionate number of blacks being stopped, arrested, etc…If we are to believe Brian Williams…and of course we should believe him…he said during a broadcast from Ferguson “…in Ferguson the police force is predominantly white but over 70% of the population in Ferguson is black.” Then, not in the same breath but indeed in the same paragraph he says, “and in Ferguson a disproportionate number of African Americans are stopped detained or arrested in this town…” Now if I were to do some critical thinking, utilizing the facts I just received from Mr. Williams I would come to this logical conclusion. If 70% or greater of the population is black then we can be pretty confident that a greater number of blacks will ultimately be arrested detained or pulled over. It is unfortunate that there are not enough blacks to balance out the police force. But the sad truth is until blacks understand that getting out of the impoverished neighborhoods and demanding choices on where their own children will attend school to receive a good enough education to graduate and move on into college, the number of black officers will remain low. No graduation, no college. No college no civil service jobs. Certain jobs must never be compromised by hiring uneducated people. The police force is one of them. Decades of elections have had bad consequences.

YIKES AFROMAN! My first question is where is the security at this establishment. My second question is what was she trying to prove. And my last but not least question is what the heck is wrong with AFROMAN? Real men or should I say real human beings do NOT simply turn around and sucker punch anyone for “dancing on them!”

I have always liked Clint. He never worried about being politically correct with anyone for any reason. As far The hypocrisy from Mr Moore nothing needs to be said. His words and his actions quite clearly define who he is. People are entitled to their opinions.
I saw “American Sniper” and thought it was a phenomenal movie. For Mr Moore, the devil is in the details…the facts. The truth opens up the dialog without finger pointing or advancing an agenda. So instead of advancing your own personal interests, try joining the real conversation, Mr. Moore. You might actually BECOME enlightened on a very important topic.

YES, you can insult anyone you want. YES, you can say anything you want or draw something so offensive it makes people want to spit in your face and YES, you can act with inpunity, without integrity, immorally and with all the evil you can muster from the deep dark recesses of your stone cold heart. YES…YOU can do all of that, but because you CAN do it, does NOT mean you should. Maybe that is what is wrong with us. Sure you have freedom to choose to act the way you do. But if someone insults my mother or picks on my child, I am not going to be happy about it.
I won’t beat them to death or even strike out insulting them because that’s not who I am nor was I raised to be that kind of person. I’m not sure when it was deemed OK to start insulting or mocking other people especially people we don’t know who just happen to be in the public square. We mock their faith or culture; the way people walk or dress, for whatever reason! Used to be all in the name of fun…to get a chuckle…not so funny to the family or person being ridiculed. Now it seems we insult or even LIE about others with the intent to defame, destroy and hurt the individual! What is wrong with us?
Johnny Carson NEVER insulted other people for a laugh. Ellen Degeneres NEVER insults other people. Humor does not have to come at the expense of other people, and getting even or lashing out serves no greater good. We wonder why our country is the way it is? I think it gets clearer every day. God Bless us all.

I don’t think the pope was ADVOCATING violence. What he said was what the normal human reaction to being insulted is. Advocating is agreeing with an action and then acting to promote it. That is not what he did or said. People react. They are after all, human beings. Let’s not confuse or be so quick to jump on the
PC bandwagon…the pope did not advocate for violence in any way. And if you or I as human beings cannot control emotional responses without striking aggressively toward another or with evil intent and vindictiveness then we are most certainly going to become extinct!
On the other hand perhaps it is time to ask ourselves this question more frequently…Just cause we can doe that mean we should?

You are sooo right my friend! Hide in plain site generally means out of sight.

You know I have tried to figure out what would be the cause and what would be a reason for hiding a cause and after so many studies had “ruled out” vaccines I thought what other factor was significantly present in probably over 90% of the children and I could only come up with one thing and that was the mother being on birth control pills. A drug thought to be pretty benign but I don’t know if that is the case especially because of how hormones effect everything. I don’t know if they even did studies on these drugs and if they did and it was shown to effect the baby’s brain development in utero in some way do you honestly think that our government would tell women to STOP taking BC? A government that has been promoting abortions under the label of “pro choice” in effect has implemented a very savvy way to disguise birth control…unlike a country like China whose government forced women to kill their children outright, What I am saying to you is that our government has a huge stake in BC and big pharma has a huge stake in BC. They both have a gazillion reasons to deny or refuse to even consider the possibility of a correlation between the two. If I was a parent who had a child with autism I would be ramming this theory down the throats of anyone who would listen. It is possible and at the very least deserves some research

Unfortunately I think in this day and age they need a little bit of both. I am quite sure officers are none to thrilled about having to wear heavier and hotter equipment to perform their jobs but I am also sure that every police officer would prefer to do that and go home to his or her family at the end of the shift.
August 15, 2014 at 11:41am
I think this is fantastic. It is certainly a step in the right direction and if politicians are in this for the right reasons they would have no reason to say no. Getting rid of all the campaigning that goes on also eliminates the lobbying that happens. Getting rid of lifetime benes and allowing the politician to focus on his desire to “SERVE” the people and not himself or his buddies is the best thing we can do! A balanced budget amendment forces every dept to start being responsible with other peoples money…mainly ours! and limiting regulatory authority of POTUS as we know even with GW is something this country desperately needs. A great start. I suggest that everyone who comments here follow Coburn on twitter and Facebook him. Find out how we as citizens can push this in our states and demand action. This has real possibilities! Don’t let it circle the drain like so many other great intentions that disappear without a trace.

I do not support the GOP. In fact I have tried TWICE to drop the affiliation and register as an independent and both times my voter card came back with a big “R” on it. I will say that it takes more than well wishes to make this thing work. Conservative values of God family country are things all Americans used to embrace but culture and media have since pushed these priorities out of the public domain and somehow vilified them. It is up to us to go out into EVERY community and show that we actually do care about every human being. It does no good to clap our hands and applaud on black man for standing for principles that we believe in. Active support and engagement is essential for change and it isn’t going to happen over night, in one election cycle and probably not in two or three. It has taken a generation or two to slowly destroy us and it will take just as long to make it strong again. If you have noticed, Europe Canada, and other free democracies; some fledgling; are desperately rooting for and counting on us to make it. We must do this if we have any hope for our country and historic culture of liberty to not only survive but lead as an example once again.
USA is NOT a Democracy. USA is a Federal Republic.

I just love to see AMERICANS that wake up and see the truth. Perhaps if we would all work together and stop segregating ourselves into groups and instead begin to row in the same direction we might just see the truth. We are on the same darn team! No one should have to live in the muck of poverty in this country. NO ONE…BTW we used to eat mayonnaise sandwiches too, and our dessert was often bacon grease from a breakfast earlier during the week slathered on white bread, covered with cinnamon sugar, caramelized under the broiler. My dad ate the meat and the kids got the pasta because we couldn’t AFFORD MEAT! Does that curdle your milk, Michelle O. My parents would have been deemed UNFIT by your progressive standards. My father left us alone at night when we were in grammar and middle school because my mom was hospitalized for weeks at a time…Unfit parents? I was the only one in my family to attend college and graduate…junior college AAS CJ….3 years days and evenings worked 3 part time jobs. Went back to school for Nursing 3 years. Took 15 years to repay my student loans. Never thought of defaulting even when the placed I worked shut down and I had just cosigned on a mortgage with a friend. Life isn’t easy for a lot of people, no matter the color of your skin. It is what’s inside that counts so learn to count on yourself. Stop answering surveys that ask the color of your skin and ethnicity. I am an American. Period, end of story.

Only with the absence of Hamas and Islamic extremists whose charter explicitly calls for death to all Jews and Infidels…that would be anyone who is not going to bow down and capitulate to the almighty ISIS leader…can Israel and Palestine coexist without rockets being fired and human beings being killed.

HIs first words should have been, “back off or I’m calling the cops” and if 5 guys started giving him grief like he said, then he definitely should have called the cops because it could have rapidly escalated to the point of having to pull his weapon. At least he would have had 911 on record. I get the fact that there is nothing worse than someone going after your face. It is the ultimate insult and everyone sees red when that happens but you have to use your head especially when you are angry and carrying a concealed weapon. You don’t escalate you deescalate.
 July 4, 2014 at 11:34pm
If you re man carrying a concealed weapon and a woman walks up to you and smacks you in the face for taking her picture…she is a Looney Tunes! Instead of escalating the situation it would seem to be a better choice to simply back off and threaten to call the cops. If she was a prostitute or whatever she would have left immediately. instead he ratchets it up and makes the situation even more volatile. Nobody likes to be confronted…or worse yet get slapped in the face because that is the ultimate insult to anyone. But it makes more sense to just back off. and if you aren’t going to back off it certainly is pretty clumsy to tweet out to the world your inner most rage before the common sense part of your brain kicks in.
 July 4, 2014 at 11:21pm
The Blaze would not hire someone or a group that has that type of content. They are about education not agitation. If you happened to get riled up after being educated, fine but they will not go out and intentionally insult people just because they have been insulted. I believe that’s who GB was and he has certainly proven that you don’t need to be that way or have that kind of content to draw an audience…at least an audience that wants to be informed as well as entertained.

You expect he’ll ignore the ruling and I fear that this may have been a gift as was the ruling on the buffer zone around abortion clinics and that the hammer will really drop when it comes to religious freedom and Obama Care
 May 27, 2014 at 12:12am
I agree with you. Years ago kids KIDS>>CHILDREN had rifles in the back of the pick-up trucks. Oddly enough no one considered taking that rifle into school to shoot up the hallways or kill the cute chick that turned his invitation to the prom down! We watched shows like Happy Days, Welcome Back Kotter, Room 222, Taxi, Cheers, Friends, The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, Bonanza. Even a series like Mod Squad or Cagney and Lacey: neither had graphic violence or explicit sex or grossly twisted plots. I the end they all had a positive message. There were no violent video games, There was Donkey Kong, Asteroids, Pac Man, etc. We have a culture of death in our society now. We have seared in our children’s brains ideas and ideals that are nonsensical and often times acted upon in rash and impulsive ways. This is not always “mentally illness.” These acts are done intentionally to inflict pain and grief, to exact revenge…to mimic violence witnessed on video/TV. Years ago we may have seen a fisticuffs but never a violent rampage with weapons to randomly kill innocent people. We have destroyed the age of innocence in our children. We have handed over their care and need for love to strangers in the most critical stage of development. We justify it in any way we can. We think exposure to the “real world” is good for a child, but all it does is dull their senses. They no longer are appalled by violence or human atrocities when they are grown because they have seen it all befo

If you posted your comment here, you obviously read the article. If you aren’t interested in the article then DON”T READ IT! Holy smokes! What is the big deal? I do not understand people who complain about things they have the ability to avoid. If you don’t like it don’t read it, don’t eat it, or watch it, or say it, or drive it, or smoke it, or drink it, or sleep in it, or wear it, or bath it, or swim in it, or what ever. But for goodness sakes, STOP complaining about something you don’t have to do!
