My wife and I had planned on visiting Telluride to run a trail race this year but changed plans after Colorado changed their guns laws. After reading the comments by residents I wonder how they can minimize forcefully shoving a pencil up a kids rear… it’s just bullying? How about we shove a pencil up the rear of the child of every parent who thinks this is just bullying? How about we shove a pencil up their rear so we can laugh at them? We will never spend another dime in Colorado.

My question would be “how does it feel to come so poorly prepared to testify and would you allow your agents to perform to the same standard as you are today?”
Exactly what I was thinking, would you accept your answers from your subordinates ? These people are shameless....and dangerous.

What’s the problem? He has to earn his keep or he’s gone. Even though most NFL players vote Democrat the NFL is performance based. No team can afford to keep EEOC/Affirmative Action players and the Patriots with Tebow are no different. Of course if Tebow announced he is gay there’d be universal love from the left.

I agree it’s a non story and Reagan making money was also a non story. Only difference is Clinton talks like a socialist and acts like a capitalist. Reagan was a capitalist in both talk and actions. That said… hypocrites on both political sides try to club former presidents over speaking fees… which is private money groups can spend within the rules of their organizations.

Money going to the foundation is the same as going to Clinton. Does anyone actually believe Clinton doesn’t control the Board’s decisions? That said… it’s private money and who really cares what they do with it. I don’t care if he talks like a socialist and acts like a capitalist but I don’t see anything to be outrages about.

Isn’t this George W Bush or the Tea Party’s fault? Global warming maybe?

Expecting the Democrats to take the IRS out of the Obamacare loop is, at best, delusional. Chief Justice Roberts decreed the individual mandate is a tax because it is collected by the IRS. It was on this basis Roberts decided that part of the law to be constitutional. If the IRS is totally out of the loop then the individual mandate becomes unconstitutional and the Democrats won’t allow that to happen. The effect of Robert’s ruling was that through taxation we can pretty much be forced to do anything which I would guess includes buying crack. Great motto, buy crack or pay the tax.

Australia’s liberal government should be ashamed. What kind of government throws their citizens under the bus? Oh… wait… the Obama administration would do the same thing (no proof… just a feeling based on their response to Benghazi). In addition to the lawsuit against the hotel she should start a campaign advising Australians about Dubai and the treatment of women. Femen should get involved in Australia and picket the Dubai Consulate.

“In addition to elevated patient privacy, the proposed clinic would also offer up space for prayer and ritual washing” I find the ritual washing thing hard to believe. I’ve spent a bunch of time in the Middle East and you’d have a hard time convincing me many of them wash at all. And for you trolls about to call me a hater… spend some time over there and be educated about third world living conditions and theocracies.
@ BOOTS1- And in America you all still use toilet paper to clean your backside instead of wet wipes. And you keep your shoes on in church during prayer.
Lol, again making it appear you leap frogged us in terms of bodily hygeine.
Last I checked, most of my Afghani friends dont use wet wipes, but a bottle of water and their hand. Most middle eastern toilets dont provide anything but a bowl and a source of water.
I use toilet paper followed by a wet wipe.

Respectfully… Are you a troll or an idiot? To compare her situation to every other situation where a gun would be necessary to ensure her safety/survival is bizarre. She got lucky there wasn’t more than one perp on the bus and that the perp wasn’t physically capable of carrying out his plan by himself. I don’t believe in blame the victim but she should never have been out on her own in an area like that. A male shouldn’t either. Sad reality is that we often put ourselves at risk… which doesn’t justify the attack. In a right to carry state a firearm is a great personal safety tool and she would’ve been much less likely to have to fight for her life.

I am a CSUSB graduate, and Dr Levin is one of the reasons I stopped donating to them. He is a criminologist who’s specialty is hate crimes. In his liberal fog he focuses the majority of his “academic” pursuit towards white, conservative groups. This led me to believe that his definition of hate is anyone doesn’t agree his him on government policy. Rather than honestly look at hate and the origins of hate, he seeks to demonize conservatives. Mr Maher has surprised me several times lately straying from the liberal plantation regarding Islam. We can only hope more liberals figure out Muslims are way more dangerous to their way of life than conservatives. Putting Mr Maher in the company of Pamela Geller is quite a promotion for Mr Maher. My only question for Dr Levin would be “would you rather your daughters live in Saudi Arabia or Tupelo, Mississippi?”

All I really want to know is what PPA considers appropriate medical attention. They might consider murdering the live victim of a failed abortion appropriate. They need to spell out what appropriate medical care is. It appears this response was crafted by a lawyer to cover a PR gaff. It’s a small victory that she labeled the victim an infant. Obama certainly has no problem with allowing the baby to die as evidenced by his vote as an Illinois State Senator.

The interesting thing is that Republicans don’t go on the offense and label the Democrats as the party of pedophilia. It’s a pretty easy connection when you look at the Democrats core constituencies. In this case it’s teachers and unions who are protecting pedophiles. Catholic priests… generally vote Democrat. No need telling who the unions are donating to. Hollywood (very left)… Roman Polanski drugs and sodomizes a 13 year old and he is still adores by his peers. Universities and academia… overwhelmingly leftist and have growing elements trying to normalized “inter-generational sex” and have pedophilia classified as just another sexual preference (non believers google “pedophilia and University of Minnesota Press” but there are numerous other examples). American Psychiatric Association has members doing the same thing in terms of “just another sexual orientation” and want to take it off the list of mental disorders. The reason pedophiles flock to public education is that you go to a target rich environment, which in most cases is protected by the union.
@Jerk… the Eastern Europeans I know are far more patriotic than the vast majority of American born liberals. I have a Polish friend who was a child under Soviet rule and fears for the future of freedom. Another friend, Romanian, came here with her mother and based on anecdotal stuff from her mother knows how lucky she is to be here. The point is I trust Eastern Europeans more than I trust any liberal. I’m a supplanted Californian who isn’t an infection because I tell anyone who will listen how we had better not follow the lead of a failing state… West Greece. I suspect Obamacare will help speed the collapse of California (and Illinois and New York) so that we can start fixing the problems.

This is how law enforcement gets a bad name. While I agree that she belongs in the slow lane the officer could have used officer discretion and pulled her over and warned her. Instead he takes what appears to a disinterested observer, who doesn’t read the entire story, an absurd action. Law enforcement is again defending itself instead of making friends. Slow drivers in the fast lane are a nuisance but there are too many variables here to write a ticket that’s going to put the PIO to work doing damage control.

What the news article shows is how easy it is to find people willing to condemn the police when all they’ve seen is a highly edited video that is designed to make the officer look bad. It’s Internal Affairs job to determine whether his use of force is justified within their General Orders. I’d like to know the whole story before passing judgement.

This reminds me of the socially conscious investment strategy of CALPERS. Amazingly when California State Treasurer Phil Angelides started divesting companies that didn’t fit his politically correct world view the state employees retirement system started to destabilize. My memory is a little faulty but I think he started with tobacco somewhere around 1999. As he progressed to other products CALPERS started under-performing. 2004 he started the Green Wave Initiative where environmental concerns trumped profitability. He believed governmental retirement fund investment practice would kill fossil fuel and help fund the green industry. There is sort of a justice in public employees getting screwed by their PC investment schemes. New York will end up with the same problem of under-performing pension investment and the gun companies will have plenty of investment as they are cash cows.

I agree that this in no way infringes his religion but… that said… having watched a lot of wrestling… I’ve seen far more egregious delays given a warning but no penalty. In fact I’ve never seen a penalty for a delay at the beginning of a match but have seen warnings. I have no idea if the ref has evenly applied the rule in the past but that point could’ve made a huge difference. Unless he always starts with a penalty point for delay then his decision is pretty suspect.

I was called a disingenuous fool who wanted old people and babies die by a poster in another blog after I explained the economics behind the law and why few of the promises would be able to be kept. My personal experience with health insurance is similar to what the unions are learning. I won’t bore you readers with all of the bloody details, but from 2009 to 2012 our plan increased $6,400 per year for less coverage, higher co-pays and deductibles, and only a couple doctors we used accepting our new plan. According to my Human Resources Dept, 75% of the increase was directly attributable to Obamacare because of the mandates and administrative burdens. Of the other 25% only part of it was inflationary with some insurance companies taking in over cost to hedge against unknown future mandates coming from the new bureaucracy. Some liberal will accuse me of misrepresenting what has happened to me and my family, but I believe my HR who has to negotiate the plans for us. Neither Obama nor HHS has any interest in fixing the problems inherent in the bill so I don’t expect these problems to be fixed or my costs to go down (unless of course I quit my job, go on disability for the stress caused by the Affordable Care Act, and then we’re poor enough to get insurance for free).

Mil-Dot has taken enough manure buts here’s more to shovel. Did she put herself at risk? Yes. But that doesn’t mean she deserved the robbery and attack. It simply means she stupidly or ignorantly put herself at risk. Rape victims still don’t deserve to raped even though some do stupid things like drinking to the point of passing out or not paying attention to who’s handled their drinks (date rape drugs). Criminals are really good at taking advantage of too easy to pass on opportunity. Hopefully I’ve trained all of my daughters to have better risk management skills. But that doesn’t excuse Mil-Dot for blaming the victim for the bad behavior or criminal acts of perps.
