Having vended at tattoo and bike shows the problem is glaringly obvious. Colors. Every show I have dealt with except for one always made it mandatory no colors. When you allow for colors, you are simply asking for a fight at your event. The people who sponsored this should have known this very basic rule when dealing with these clubs.
Colors??? Seriously? You mean to tell us that the problem that should be respected is they don't like someone elses pick out of the Crayola box? How sad for them, go back to kindergarten and learn the basics of polite life in society. If that is the case then they aren't grown up enough to have a conference let alone let out to roam polite society. Please!
Plus adding alcohol to the situation. You always have those " couple loose cannons" so there is bound to be conflict.

What is so difficult in obeying orders?

My son was asked to run at a friend who is a ccw permit holder. He covered 21 feet in two seconds. His reponse time for pulling his weapon out was over two seconds. People do not understand how quickly things can turn with a knife and how much ground a person can cover in such a short time. It can turn deadly very fast in what would appear as a safe distance. I am not defending the cops actions as I was not there but I also know how deadly a knife situation can be.
The cops all ready had there weapons out and ready. I don't think the 21 foot rule applies here
Actually it still does, because anywhere inside that 21 feet is still a danger zone. Basically less than 21 feet is even more dangerous, this kid was more like 10 to 12 feet from the officers, a distance he maintained throughout the video. So being closer than 21 feet can effectively negate the advantage of having a firearm unholstered.

Wow, so many of your pro Trump remarks remind me of the same over the top remarks from the Obama bot supporters. It is amazing to read.

Interesting responses but off target if you claim the name of Jesus Christ. Love Your Enemies
Matthew 5…43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.… My flesh says blood for blood, an eye for an eye but my Spirit says that I should exhibit the same love as my Saviour did when he was taken away as a prisoner facing death. Our own brothers in the Middle East are showing us the true love of those who follow Christ. They are the victors because the enemy can not conquer them. I want to take up arms and deal justice but that is God’s role, not mine. He commands me to love my enemies and that is something I pray I can do. AS hard as it is in the flesh, his own disciples showed us what it really meant to be disciples of Christ. My prayers to those facing persecution and to our enemies that they may see the one true God.
Please explain this to me. How do you help people that do not want to be helped by non-Muslims? In this case I'm referring to the Sharia Law Muslims? I think most people here are on target and would like to see the Christians and Jews helped because they want it. You can pray for God to help them but that's not you directly helping them.
@cclevel -----------Geez! Good thing you weren't around when this country declared its independence.
But no worries, someone else will step up and fight for you.

So on one hand they defend the right of so called artist who paint disgusting images of Christ and on the other hand attack Geller for insulting Islam for cartoon drawings and you can’t see the hypocrisy? Interesting how blind people become with the shoe is switched.
 May 29, 2015 at 7:09am
I am simply amazed at just how far the media is going, in order to side with Muslims on this issue. They argue with such passion in defense of Muslims and their rights to not be offended and yet I never ONCE saw this sort of debate on behalf of Christians during the so called piss Christ art and the elephant dung Mary. The double standards by the press NEEDS to be called out by Mrs Geller. I want to hear why the double standards! Why is there a need to come to their defense and yet they promoted the same free speech for those who insult Christ. Simply amazing to witness their hypocrisy.

You are here in our culture under our laws and you will therefore abide by those laws. If you want a form of shiria, move back to where you came from. This is the land of freedom which WILL run contrary to what you want to impose on women under shiria. We already see what you are doing to England and we do not want your behavior here. You want to live here in America? Be an American and put aside your culture. Shiria and the Constitution are in direct opposition to each other besides, we know what you are doing and it will be over our dead bodies. USN Retired.
Many of them were born here and are citizens the same as you. The US Constitution says they do not have to set aside their religion any more than you have to set aside yours. There is freedom of religion here.
@terriveganmom would you like a sharia court in America that can cut off peoples hands, heads ?

Very crafty indeed. What better way to stir up the waters by bringing a child in the middle of the militant gays attempt to get a church to conform to the world. They will stoop to any level to get their way and many will not see it.

Corruption at levels we have never seen. It is stunning at ALL LEVELS of leadership just how much corruption running rampant among our so called leaders. With moral decay running amuck within the very leadership of our government we, as a society, stand to collapse. This is not sustainable, lawlessness among bureaucrats. This is how tyranny grips it’s people.

This is where the Department of Justice could act… Oh wait, I forgot, he too has pledged an allegiance to this President rather then our Constitution.
 April 16, 2015 at 5:05pm
So no, she will not adhere to her sworn oath and will not enforce the laws passed. She has made it a difficult position for those who are serving as Border Agents to uphold their oath as they could lose their jobs and their retirements. This will result in good men and women leaving and the hiring of people who will gladly pledge allegiance to the President over the Constitution. What surprised me is the lack of shock by those in the room when she made it clear she will follow the President rather then enforce laws passed by the House.
I called my Senator here in Va and asked them a basic question, which takes precedent, a law passed by Congress or an Executive Order” She replied “the Senator has not made an official statement on this.” I told her I was shocked as this is a very basic question with only one answer and that it appears those in the House can not even meet the bare minimum job standards as laid out in the Constitution and that they seem more then willing to surrender their Constitutional responsibilities to the President. We have not just lost our representation, we are no longer are Republic.

The old me would be like this fighter, knock him sensless. The new me would look to how God, through Jesus Christ who granted me mercy and grace and commanded me to love them as he loved me. Now when I ponder that commandment I then realize I am that internet bully and instead of receiving the beat down of God’s judgement, I, instead received his grace and forgiveness despite my own sins through Jesus Christ. Puts everything in a whole different perspective when we see God’s love for us despite our behavior.
PS 144:1 At times like these, I'm proud to be an Old Testament Christian

It’s surreal that folks like you walk around in life oblivious to those who have given so much so that you can run around and act like a fool. You don’t even have an inkling that the freedoms you exercise daily are because of people like Kyle who gave so much to their country. I am ashamed to know or hear of folks like you who have so much disrespect for all of us who have given so much, many their lives. Not sure how one like yourself becomes so selfish in our society today. I have tried to understand how free folks seem so willing to give up their freedoms so easily. You would think that with freedoms comes a greater desire fo rmore freedoms but that is not how it goes. I will say a prayer for you tonite sir. this man was willing to lay down his life for you, despite never knowing you. There is another who has laid down his life for you and he created you. Hope you can find peace in him who died on your behalf.

I am 13 years older then my wife and married now almost 20 years. We recently accepted Christ as our saviour 3 years ago and despite these three so called test, it is our faith that preserves our marriage. My walk with our Lord Jesus Christ sustains us everyday and without him, I would be hopelessly lost. We have a great church, wonderful friends but it is our walk with Christ that gets us through each day. He is our focal point, our crutch, our God.
“The most extreme elements of the Republican party…”!? Mr. Bolling, that would be you and the progressive Rep party who has successfully taken over the party? If standing on the principals of the Constitution and the founders is extreme to you then you have moved. I would suggest you no longer consider yourself a viable candidate for the future of Virgina, best to go somewhere else where your progressive views would be welcomed. I did not sacrifice a third of my life so we can become more marxist/communist/socialist. Stick to the Constitution!!

Whinning makes you look so insignificant. That is the people’s city where our representatives hide out at. Therefore when they act as if we no longer matter you might as well expect us marching on the city. It was built with my tax dollars so you chose to live there and must deal with those of us who go to exercise our Constitutional rights. Want peace, ironic you whine about noise living in a city, move to the country.
June 26, 2013 at 6:44am
I am not sure why pointing out that liberals too have been affected is suppose to lessen the affect the IRS had in violating our civil rights. The point is they broke the law and had a chillng affect on free speech and or right to petition our government. Hey libs, I don’t think you want the IRS with this sort of power to be abused by a Rep who is in office. They point is simple, they trampled allover the constitution and abused their authority. An agency with ENORMOUS power to confiscate your home and garnish you wages and little to nothing you can do about it. These people need to be prosecuted and sent to jail. End of story.
Is this great country or what, you can investigate yourself and declare all to be OK. This is great. How do they say it, "just trust me".
Maybe they should stop the George Zimmerman trial, give him a million dollars to invetigate himself!? That way he could make sure to implement changes so it would never happen again.
No, not the end of the story. Prosecute those who instituted the program of targeting any applications.
Now we need to force Congress to institute the flat tax on all Americans earning over $36,000 per year. Do away with ALL deductions. Americans can then plan their lives knowing that their income will be stable and that they won't be harassed by the IRS.
A spoon full of sugar......
Sure....the ones that were "progressive" got priority approval instead of a long long runaround.
10 X Bigger than WATERGATE !!! PERIOD.
It shouldn't of course as the process of making sure political action groups are not using the non-profit status and shielding of donor publication should be applied equally but thoroughly. Companies and individuals who hide behind such groups are the most cowardly among us. Having said that making an issue of whether it was applied evenly or not is the trivial nonsense that takes up the mind of ideologues on both sides of the spectrum. And the conservative ideologues having spent the last few months making a conspiracy argument cannot let it go. It is the mark of the chronically ignorant to not let go of a position despite evidence and facts tot he contrary. As for pseudo journalists who spend their lives manufacturing stories and bending the truth to support and promote their bias. Well as they say there is a special place in @@@@ for them.
