And that is the problem. Nobody should need to ask permission from the government to run and open a business. Maybe when we realize that, we can make some actual progress.

Or a shotgun, or an AR-15. And she should probably spend some time at the shooting range.

I don’t need the government telling me who I can and cannot get a ride from. I love Uber, and Lyft and I hate that they are not allowed to work in some airports. If I wanted to drive people around for money, I should be free to do so and shouldn’t have to ask government permission. If I want to work for a private company I should have to adhere to their rules and regulations. We need to stop living under the assumption that the government should be involved in voluntary transactions between individuals. That is how we get our freedom back.

Or they should give this guy keys to city and reward him for his heroic actions.
Agreed! Should be throwing this guy a parade for ridding the city of a scumbag.
a hero for not practicing gun safety. its people like this guy that are going to get our guns taken away.

“The leading candidate to be the next leader of the free world would not pass my decency interview. I’d send him away,” Lucado wrote. “I’d tell my daughter to stay home. I wouldn’t entrust her to his care.”
And you know what your daughters response might be, to get angry, tell you off, say you have no right to tell her who to date, and then sneak out and see him anyway. That is exactly what his happening with Trump voters. The more the media and politicians say don’t vote for Trump, the more people will support him. You may be doing it for all the right reasons, but that doesn’t matter. People are sick and tired with the status quo and being told what do you by the ‘elite’.
Instead of trying to tear Donald down, we need no stop the infighting. We need to attack the Democrats and their plans. We need to stop playing into the media and the pundits during the debates. The candidates need to resist the urge to attack each other. You want to shut Donald up, stop saying his name in the debate so he doesn’t get a chance for rebuttal. Stop giving into him.
How many pass muster and still turn out to be sh*t heads? I am a father of three girls and I always insisted on meeting the boys. Guess what, the outcomes were about 50/50 on the decency quotient. Bill Clinton would pass I'm sure. Does that make you feel better?

He should enroll her in some self defense classes. Next time, she won’t be the victim.
People who are bigger than her can take the same classes, and if they both study hard, the bigger one will still always win.

Thanks to the useless media people are ignoring the real problem with what went down. There was no reason for him to be arrested and for this situation to be handled outside of the school. He wasn’t profiled because he was Muslim. He wasn’t treated any differently. He did break rules and disobeyed his teachers. But did anything he do warrant arrest? I do not think so. But instead of talking about how schools are taking kids who would have gotten a detention or suspension a few years, and handing them over to police, we are talking about a made up story about how he was discriminated against.
Too many kids in this country are being forced into the criminal justice system at younger and younger ages for things that most of us did when we were kids. But, the left doesn’t want to talk about that. They want people entered into the system. They want people to be stuck in a life of poverty because of mistakes they made as kids. It makes them easier to control later.
Did you just fall of a turnip truck or something ? Showing up at school with a briefcase bomb (minus explosives) is WAY over the line. This little turd did this on purpose and it's highly likely his parents had everything to do with it as well. The families history, clockmed's school record supports the assertion. Now the final shoe drops with a massive law suit against the city. This is extortion Billis, plain and simple. F these POS traitors.
Better to be safe than sorry. The shooters in San Berardino could have been apprehended before the fact except people didn't want to "racial profile." So you see how much sense you're making?

I would have shot the ***** in the back. I know it is probably a crime, but I’d rather take him out and take my chances with a Texas jury than let a scumbag who attacked an elderly woman get away.

Of course it is always somebody or something else’s fault. Instead of looking for real solutions to Chicago’s problems, they blame other cities and states. Let’s play this out. Congress passes whatever form of gun control they are clamoring on about. Then the next shooting happens and they will scream and yell and get emotional and demand more restrictions. They will keep doing this until they get guns banned.

Props to the cop for not laughing in his face because I would have been rolling on the floor laughing at this moron.

Why is Iowa so important? Why are the people of Iowa more important to the primary process than the people of say Texas, or New York?
 March 18, 2015 at 12:05pm
It is a shame that Walker decided to force her to resign instead of supporting her. She is right. It seems that only people in Iowa and the establishment want to keep the primaries they way they are. Iowa is irrelevant and politicians shouldn’t have to go kiss the rings of the elite in Iowa to win their not so important backing. Why not have the presidential primary 90 or 120 days before the general election in every state?
March 13, 2015 at 4:28pm
No. The order of things should be grab the weapon, fire shot into skull, call 911 to report dead body in your doorway
 March 12, 2015 at 4:00pm
The driver and the person who made the call to let him go should be fired.
Billis: Wouldn't you love to be the fly on the wall inside the Oval Office when Obama has a little meeting with his new appointee running the dog and pony show?

I get that. But, these tests have nothing to do with students. They are being used by the government to decide what schools get money, and teachers are being evaluated based on their results. This leads to problems because schools are no longer teaching kids important things, they are teaching them how to pass these stupid tests. Instead of teaching kids usefull skills and cultivating their innate desire to learn, they are forced to focus on test taking. That serves nobody and results in kids graduating woefully underprepared for both college and the real world.
 March 10, 2015 at 2:41pm
Instead of evaluating teachers on test scores lets base their evaluations on what students know and retain the next year. Obviously, this shouldn’t be done based on 1 year, but over multiple years. Look for patterns. If students from the same teacher continue to lag behind their peers in the next grade, maybe that teacher isn’t doing a good job educating students. I think that is a much more accurate look at how a teacher is doing than some stupid tests.
 February 5, 2015 at 1:55pm
Nope. Why should they? They have no competition. Their monopoly is protected by lawmakers, at all levels of government.
February 4, 2015 at 12:44pm
Ah. The free market at work. More people watch TV shows with sex and violence than wholesome TV shows. That means that shows with violence and sex will get made.

Liza, there is no evidence to support the idea that vaccines and autism are in any way, shape, or form related.
 January 30, 2015 at 3:42pm
If you want to be be against vaccines fine. But stop claiming it is because they cause autism, or have ‘dangerous’ chemicals in them. That is ignorance and is the problem. When you spread lies like that you make the problem worse.
