I respectfully disagree, JD. While I would agree that our country is under assault from seemingly all directions, I do not concede that it has been destroyed yet. Key word being 'yet'.
@38-how about "transformed"?

They’re too used to conservatives cowering for fear of being called bigots. They’ve never been around someone who could give an unfiltered assessment of Hillary before. That would be traumatizing to have lived as long as they both have and then be asked to engage your brain for the first time.

“Majia Nunez’s race was not immediately clear.”
Seriously? Because Nunez is Anglo-Saxon or Nordic in origin?
Where did you get that name? The shooter was identified as Stephen Beck and you can find his photo here...http://www.fox13news.com/news/u-s-and-world-news/171899457-story

Exactly. It happens to be all the “black power” racist crap that motivated this guy, so it isn’t that they cherry-picked a photo to fit a narrative (you know, like the one of sweet little innocent Trayvon).
I'm sure that if the ONE guy who is in the hospital, lives to talk about what happened, he's going to RAT ON the other guys in exchange for a lighter sentence. Then each of them will have a nice place to live and time to discuss their actions etc. Or maybe they are now stalking their next victim and that guy will have a 9 MM pistol on his body for protection and will show each of those crumbs just how nicely it works. Poof , ALL GONE.

So when they play basketball off-duty and don’t want to play zone defense, what is the name of the defense they will play (that has been sanctioned by the word police)?
It’s either a zone defense or a gender-neutral-to-gender-neutral defense.
Of course, by the time the coach has called his defense, the other team has scored and is trying to figure out what defense they will use.
"Hey, whose gender-neutral individual was that who scored? Don't leave your gender-neutral individual wide open!"
And who will be the skins and who will be the shirts ?
It to it defense?
One on One
How bout 'Whoa-man'???? lol... Society beats all... including the word police and any other 'politically-correctness'.... We can all be just who we are without changing history!

I don’t understand why Germany isn’t ahead of England on this one. They’ve been paying Greece’s bills for years now because nobody else will pony up and they have to do it to keep Greece’s demise from wrecking Germany. If they got out of the EU, they could let Greece fail and while it will affect global markets, the impact to them is less than being bled dry by fools who won’t allow any cuts to their unfunded benefits.
Much of the remainder of what Gohmert attempted to get across wasn’t audible on the video clip due to the opposing party’s chants, but he added again that “radical Islam killed these people!”
Ironic course of action for the people who moments earlier were accusing Republicans for being afraid to debate!
The Muslim Jihadist terrorist must be enjoying this debacle.
The idiots we have to represent us are brain dead.You can write a thousand laws ,you can eliminate the second amendment and confiscate all the guns the government can find and guess whats ?the terrorists and criminals will still be able to acquire all types of weapons and leave honest citizens at their mercy
Gohmert didn't debate... he was just shouting and pointing, as morons do.

How do we know they have no connection to terrorists and there’s no risk to the largest sitting duck zone if the investigation is ongoing? Sounds like damage control!

Why are they talking about themselves in the third person? Don’t they get that they are Congress, who abdicated their throne and yielded to the executive? Repeal the APA, then I’ll take you seriously!

That’s how you know the story is false. There probably isn’t such a person in real life. Even so, it should be enough to declare martial law and suspend all civil rights.

The funny thing is that he’s trying to prove that we’re all just mean to Muslims, but what he really proves is that everyone instinctively knows they have nothing to fear from someone saying “Praise Jesus” but plenty of reason for concern when someone reveals their devotion to Allah.
On that note, he could have simply done the "muslim" part in normal clothing. My guess is simply hearing Allahu Ackbar would cause a similar reaction.
I did find it amusing Yousef Saleh Erakat didn't criticize the fact while dressed as a "Muslim" he ran away. If the stereotype were to be true, he would stand there after dropping the box. Just a thought.
Perhaps instead of regular dress, he should have been dressed as a nun?
Now if that nun had a ruler in her hand - that would be another story altogether ;)

“At the same time, due process protections should be put in place that allow law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a watchlist to be removed.”
The thing about due process of law is that you are entitled to it BEFORE your rights are denied!
What should happen when someone on a terror watchlist tries to buy a gun? Nothing. The feds can make their investigation of the person and their terrorist tendencies higher priority and then stop the person if we can prove conspiracy or something else, but there’s no legal or moral grounds for delaying without due process.
APOLOGIST, "The thing about due process of law is that you are entitled to it BEFORE your rights are denied!"
You nailed it.
This is why the NRA can not be trusted.
Exactly. No one on the 'no fly' list is guilty of being a terrorist, only suspected. And last I heard, Americans are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
If anyone on the terrorist watch list has been prosecuted and found guilty of a crime that prohibits them from possessing a firearm the NICS background check will pick them up anyway and they will be denied the sale.
Should they NOT have been found guilty of such a crime but is a suspect on the list and they go to buy a gun they are subject to the normal NICS background check like anyone. If they are flagged as being on the watch list it notifies the agency that put them on the watch list. That agency then decides what to do. One of the things the agency may do is let it run, allow the sale to continue to gain operational information about what's happening.
As bad as it is, denying someone the ability to board a plane is one thing. Denying someone their Constitutional rights because someone, somewhere thinks they MIGHT be a threat is the antithesis of what this country stands for.
the previous legislation did not allow any appeal and the no fly list is so flawed it is almost worthless and if you do not have political help it takes a lot of time and money to get off the list
 June 15, 2016 at 12:03pm
Trump the fascist. There is that pesky part of the Constitution that talks about depriving people of liberty without due process of law! And once we give the government the power to ban guns from everyone on the no fly list, all conservatives and libertarians will be on it. Hey Trump supporters, is this evidence enough for you that he isn’t conservative, won’t protect your rights, and has no philosophical moorings? This is another bit of clear evidence he doesn’t understand basic concepts.

“Even more ironic was the fact that the elite French special forces group specializes in hostage situations. But during the robbery, the French officers initially took an entirely hands-off approach.”
Nothing ironic at all about that, standard procedure for French military!

This is pure legal extortion. The alleged perpetrators are dead so there is no evidence other than the testimony of someone who sees deep pockets. This lawyer can’t possibly think he’ll win in court, he’s just fishing for a settlement.

Just for the benefit of everyone here, things are classified based on the level of damage to national security that would be done if the information were disclosed. Information is classified at the top secret level only if disclosure of it would cause exceptionally grave damage to national security (this doesn’t always mean loss of life, but usually does, and at this level, it’s usually pretty direct). I’ve also heard reports that there was SCI on some of the emails, which is worse yet than top secret information. This is the kind of stuff that exposes sources and methods of gathering intelligence. Compromise of this either means an asset is exposed (high likelihood of death) or some method of intelligence gathering is compromised and therefore less effective (we don’t have the upper hand on information, which is a life and death thing in war).
The whole point is that this loon is completely wrong. By definition, if the emails contain and therefore exposed top secret/SCI information, people will almost certainly die as a result. The sad thing is that I’m certain she knows this was plainly false, but the morons that vote for liberals are short on facts anyway, so they won’t ever know any better.

This reinforces my general reluctance to hire anyone with Ivy League education. My question is at what point the larger labor market will realize what a bunch of whiny brats come out of these schools and follow my lead? At some point, these schools’ radical left worldviews and their unwillingness to stand up to the children (meant insultingly) will spell their end.
A high percentage of Congress are Ivy League graduates , look where that's got us. I rest my case.
Apologist ... I have already instructed my H.R. Dept. to never even grant an interview to anyone with an ivy league school diploma more recent than 5 years. Also, no one from Mizzou. Any applicant with a degree more recent than 3 years will be reviewed by me personally.
I wish businesses would get together and place a 5 year moratorium on anybody under 30 from being hired. It's just not ivy leagues, it's across the board in all educational levels including the high schools. That wouldn't be "agist" it would be intelligence and indoctrination aware. And teach those useless little bastards that the world doesn't march to their tune, and neither does it care what they think. At least two generations have been brainwashed and dumbed down by the left. Heaven help us when my group, the aging hippies, finally pass the baton.
What we are seeing are the rumblings of little future fascists. These are the little socialist monsters who have been indoctrinated and brainwashed from the beginnings of their educational lives. Their silver spoon diet removing any sense of humility and respect. They have no idea of sacrifice or personal responsibility. Their narcissistic tendencies are unbridled by their entitled lives of comfort. Their self inflated egos lead them to believe most sincerely that they are more intelligent than those who have lived 2 to 3 times as long as they have and the wisdom of our forefathers was nothing more than the racist ramblings of old religious white guys. Concepts of freedom, liberty, responsibility and integrity have been replaced with social justice, victim hood, political correctness, and "micro aggression". They know absolutely nothing, have done nothing, and accomplished nothing, but in their minds know everything. They're selfish, self absorbed, and foolhardy. In the end, they've made themselves into the useful idiots they are, a tool to overthrow the greatest most successful government, society, and nation the world has ever seen. These are the same "types" of people that have made mass murders out of leaders and politicians anytime someone dare to disagree. Proclaiming themselves wise, they have become the worst type of moron, ironically prospering because of the prosperity garnered by principles they now seem to despise.
Exactly. I refuse, on principle, to do business with anyone with a pedigree, besides, nearly every one I've met has been an astonishing idiot.
I can not help but wonder how these special snowflakes will feel when they lose their jobs over a minor comment in the future. Situations like these have a habit of popping up when one least expects them, but like Banquo's ghost, I do believe this will come back to haunt these cretins.
I won't even consider a candidate with such "credentials." They spend all their time crusading against capitalism, including the company's efforts to make a profit.
We have created a lost generation.The universities have become a breeding ground for
air brained socialists taught by socialists so called professors .When these students go into the real world they will be lost. No more safe zones ,no protesting for so called diversity where you work , asking your employer to resign if you disagree with his politics
The legacy past down by the greatest generation is gone
These whiny toddlers are destroying the concept of a law degree from Yale. And, it appears Harvard is not far behind.
I agree, Apologist. I imagine that these little spoiled brats will expect to get away with the same horrible behavior on their jobs. They will be in for quite a rude surprise.
Apologist, not just Ivy League, you better watch out for the California schools too.
Those who refuse to accept their diplomas from him don't deserve one.

She said McDonald “needs to comprehensively address the VA’s systemic problems — and that means reducing wait times, improving care and increasing patient satisfaction.”
The way to address the VA’s systemic problems is to privatize it and get government out of healthcare altogether. Government involvement is the penultimate systemic problem.
