ModRepub – the hundreds of thousands of impoverished -US Citizen- inner city kids living in rat infested hellholes who haven’t had a meal today may disagree with the amount of attention being lavished on people who’s first act in America is to break the law. I wonder if they’ll grow up thinking that as a political football, they’ve been punted in favor of illegals, for the sake of votes.

If it wasn’t for the mainstream press backing Obama’s (almost) every play, Carney, or anyone would have been torn to shreds every press briefing, and the headlines and ledes would have wrecked the admin.

Oh, you’ve cut him deep there… I’ll bet he’ll cry all the way to the bank. Then, after depositing more money than six generations of your family and mine has ever seen, he’ll get on his plane and fly away. Just sobbing. It’s sad, really.

Wait.. sounds like Bundy was echoing at least parts of what many others have said – along the lines of “too many blacks (among other races/groups) are still on the plantation, it’s just the democrat party who owns it now”.
And, Bundy was saying ” I wonder if ” not “They shall be” regarding slavery from what I read.
I think Glenn overreacted on this.

When a politician talks about something being a “career ender” that politician should be thrown out of office. You’re supposed to do the right thing, period, whether you get re-elected or not. You’re not in a career, you’re discharging a duty.
"What's right" should be the will of their constituents. How can that be a "career ender? Seems to me it would be a career enhancer!

Sad to see it happen, but looks justified. The Officer actually could have shot earlier, but held off until the last second, it appears. Most importantly, the person getting arrested didn’t necessarily have to run his mouth and interfere. He caused this.
I do agree with you that the officer didn't seem to want to shoot the dog and waited until it actually jumped on him. I give him that credit, but the cops should not have been harassing the dog's owner in the first place.
Josh, some more back story. He had a lawsuit pending and should not have come near LE, but hey, thugging is a contact sport sometimes. When is a 3 year old dog a puppy?
come on josh
Let's make it simple:
You are at a pro gay rally. There are only 10 of you there
There is a man holding a Bible sitting still saying nothing....
About 10 yards from you, not even looking at you. But he isnt going anywhere.
Are you curious as to why he is there? Of course you are.
Does the Bible signify anything for you? Of course it does.
Will this impress your homosexual rally friends? No.
Will they welcome him? No.
Lets assume someone starts getting that God guilt going and mentions him and motions to him
Then another approaches him, yelling something stupid or makes a joke at him.
Suddenly another man walks out on the OPPOSITE end of your group holding... a Bible and stares, interested in what you are doing but also 10 yards away.
Are you going to completely ignore him?
Is it possible that there is something amiss?
Could something happen?
Now... think about the man, his dog and what was going on at the time....
Once the officers said split, thats exactly what he should have done.
@avenger...face it, you just cannot make it simple enough for josh to get it. Let it go and don't waste time on trolls.
This is a case of a dog being smarter than his owner. BTW When cops are arresting an armed robber don't stand out in the open and watch. A .40 bullet will kill you after it passes thru a wall, a car, a body or a dog. A .223 bullet will kill you at 800+ yds. Get behind COVER. COVER is something that will stop a bullet. Concrete is good. Police work is not a spectator sport.

Right! Why not simply have her immediate supervisor order her to testify truthfully. If she refuses, fire her for cause. She hasn’t incriminated herself, but what employer in their right mind would want to keep an employee who’s hiding evidence of such a huge organizational problem? Out she goes, for cause.

Hey Johnny – Glenn’s said he doesn’t really care who loves who. His beef ( iirc ) is with the slow, constant changing of traditions/definitions for the purposes of deconstructing a reasonably well-functioning civilization because some wish to rebuild it, and their plan allows for far less individual liberty.
He mentions the Fabian Society as reference for this – for instance:
“The Fabian Society, which favoured gradual change rather than revolutionary change, was named – at the suggestion of Frank Podmore – in honour of the Roman general Fabius Maximus (nicknamed “Cunctator”, meaning “the Delayer”). His Fabian strategy advocated tactics of harassment and attrition rather than head-on battles against the Carthaginian army under the renowned general Hannibal. – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabian_Society
So, Glenn’s essentially pointing out this drip of changing the culture and traditions has an end game that we ( all of us, Left, Right, Center, Straight, Gay, etc ) aren’t going to like.
Trust in the Force Luke ! .... BUT ... Lock and Load.

I’m in support. First, I don’t trust the motives of the people moving this legislation. Second, they haven’t enforced the existing law, so I think existing law should be vigorously enforced first, then examine the situation.

I think Rand’s actually right on this. Sure, they came here illegally, but they wouldn’t be here if folks weren’t hiring them. And since the Feds (under the authority of BOTH parties) have not vigorously enforced immigration law, here we are.
Sure, let’s deport any lawbreakers, etc. But seriously, do so many of you truly believe families who have been here more than 10 years, at our invitation via job offers and lax enforcement, should be broken up and/or sent home? I rather doubt it, regardless of the rhetoric lobbed in from behind the cover of an anonymous user account.
If you’re truly going to be an absolutist and say “send them ALL back”, well, don’t we dislike Zero Tolerance policies in general? Like when kids gnaw a poptart into the shape of a gun and get suspended?
I think Rand’s on the right track. Secure the border first, then address those who remain. We can sort the wheat from the chaff this way, and perhaps even approach the birthright citizenship issue with some credibility. I’d rather see logic -and- compassion applied here, rather than another “Zero Tolerance” approach arbitrarily applied after decades of “wink and a nod” immigration enforcement. Regardless of whose political party it benefits.

Odd, though. They have no problem with using religion in their commercials…. “Say a prayer for peace”, is how their song ends.
So, I don’t understand why they suddenly get religion-averse when the religion they base their appeal on asks for a nod in return for a donation.

Double amen. The Anthem is not about you, the singer. I actually started listening to the posted version, but it was going on for too long. I have other things to do besides watching a decent singer try too hard.

Sounds like he overreacted. But I would like to know….
If that person had turned to face you, and in a reasonable tone of voice said:
“I can see your son doesn’t understand, but many people, myself included, don’t like to be touched unexpectedly. Could you please stop him from doing that again?”
Is that a valid request in your opinion?

If this isn’t a hoax:
If you can’t afford the tip, you can’t afford to dine out. If you wish to protest, write your CongressCritter. But don’t deliberately deprive another of fairly earned wages because you want to make a political point.
wrong answer they absolutely understand it when it hits them in Their wallet! No law that you have to leave a tip its just a nice jester but not required.............
Tipping is optional. I can eat out and not tip if I want to. I can also make a political point to the vast majority of young people in food service who are Liberals/Democrats who did vote Obama in and with their bankrupt "expectations' believe everything will just go along as usual with no consequences. I loves this card left on this table. Time to suck it up young people who voted for Obama. There are consequences. You SHOULD feel them. Next time vote for someone else who isn't going to tack on a crap load of taxes and Obamacare to tank your tips and wages and even your job. YOUNG people in Food Service need a wake up call and you can't keep using Mommy or Daddy's credit card for booze, smokes, shoes, and 99 cent slurpees. Grow up! This is real life! It has consequences. If you voted Barack Obama back in and you are in Food Service you deserve what you get and you deserve no tips. You probably won't have your job next year. This is YOUR fault for your voting choices. Own it! Feel it! Stop telling us to tip you! YOu don't deserve a tip. You deserve to OWN the consequences of your voting choices. Go stand on the unemployment line and gripe about how you aren't getting tips.

Probably thought it was a drive through window. He wanted two all people patties, special tossed, crunchy knees, leaves and twigs on a sesame seed bun.
Yep, I bet you sang along with that if you’re over 40.
You forgot the little apple pie for desert ;-) Oh and those of us over 40 don't eat there no more... It goes through me like water through a hose ;-(

Imaginary dialogue with some of these Actors/Actresses when they’re speaking freely:
Me: “Why do you have armed security at the studio gates, and at film shoots?”
Them: “Because some crazy could walk up and start shoo…..”
Them: “But you’re a nobody…”
Me: “Tell that to my kids.”
You get a lot of stalkers working in middle management, do you?
Also if you lived in Hollywood you would know that most of the celebrities have already signed a pledge not to use guards armed with firearms, instead having non-lethal tasers and mace.
But, then again, that doesn't fit in with your worldview of celebrities and Hollywood types, so you'll just ignore it and continue to be willfully ignorant and lie to the public just to keep your deadly weapons.
