Am I understanding the views of those who are for this idea to be that once a felon does his or her time as a convicted law breaker, they should be able to run for public office as a law MAKER? If one violates a felony statue and does time, they have somehow earned back the right to run for office where they would pass (among otherlaws) felony statutes?!?!?!
This thinking would require them be able to apply and be seriously considered for law enforcement jobs as well, right? Afterall, they did their time. If one cannot be trusted in a position to enforce the laws of their jurisdictions, how in the name of intelligent thought can that one be trusted to PASS the laws of their jurisdictions?!?!?!
A convicted financial embezzler would never be seriously considered to be the CFO for a city/county/state/federal accounting position (especially oversight). The same person, however, should be allowed to RUN for public office where they will be directly involved in the policy overseeing the finances of said jurisdiction? Am I the only one who sees the stupidity here?
Again, if doing time makes all things “right”, and they can vote AND run for office, then what grounds would anyone have to deny the same folks employment as a police officer or a federal agent? Heck, they paid their dues, right?? Is that being considered in this whole thing? Sorry,but doing time is PART of the penalty. Since when did completing a sentence of incarceration become synonymous with a pardon?
This is a very intelligent post and it is just "COMMON SENSE", too bad there is a complete lack of common sense among Liberals. Liberalism is a serious and dangerous contagious mental disease.

This movie must be a hoax, because the UK kisses the Muslims’ butts, refuses to say Islamic Terrorist, asserts so-called Islamaphobia against any who do not welcome invaders…er….refugess into Europe, etc.
They are convinced that the Muslims will love them for it….so, this MUST be a fraud………..or……..maybe not!

I don’t see how anybody could believe that this crazy bus can be turned around at all.
Washngton is broken, beyond repair. It is not giving up any more than admitting that the Titanic was doomed after hitting ice. Sendng “new faces” to DC is like changing Captains on the Titanic when it was beyond halfway under water….new leadership promising to stop the influx of new sea water and to fix the breach would be WAY too little, WAY too late. Same as in DC. This crap sandwich has already been made. Nothing left to do now but take a big steamy bite.

Um…so…staring is nothing alarming? Ready to have your asenine crap exposed as complete bull?
Let’s say you have a 10 year old child. Let’s say a 54 year old man sees said child at the mall and stands directly next to that child and begins staring – relentlessly? Would you be creeped out? Let’s say the 54 year-old blades his body into an attack-style posture. Would you dogmatically insist that there is NO need for concern? WOULD YOU BE ALARMED?
If you would, then you are obviously aware that non-verbal communication suggests that there MIGHT be a threat. If you would NOT, then you are just a freaking liar trying to hold fast to your liberal philosophy.
NOW-If you are at the mall, and some dude will not stop staring at your wife, from two feet away, will you comfort her by saying “do you know how ridiculous you sound, honey? Since when is staring a criminal offense?” See above responses for your true identity.
The eyes are excellent non-verbal communicators, coupled with body language. Only a retard would ingore or deny that non-verbal communication can properly reveal a threat. The punk was trying to communicate that he was a threat. Stop being a douche.

I wish to the Lord on high that ALL Whitehouse Spokemen/women were REQUIRED to have a polygraph hooked up prior to any “press release”, with a hugh screen behind them displaying real-time results!!!! Regardless of which party is in the whitehouse…as a matter of fact, I wish all politicians or appointees in leadership roles (President, VP, Speaker, Majority Leader, Minority Leader, Secretary of State, etc) were required to have polygraphs attached and displayed every time they appeared before news cameras! Ole Josh Earnest would have had an entertaining press release then. Imagine if they were rigged to deliver a mild, uncomfortable SHOCK every time deception was detected!!! How hilarious would press conferences be?!?!?!

Notice that POTUS has never claimed to love his Army or the nation he rules…er…serves.

Yes you can. The man didn’t HAVE the pistol, so it makes no freaking difference whether or not the state reciprocates another state’s license. Having a permit is NOT grounds to detaining or search. He most certainly CAN sue. His 4th amendment protection against unlawful search and seizure were violated. He wasn’t charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon. A $%#^ liberal, anti-gun storm trooper harassed him because he HAD a permit.

You nailed it. the sickening thing is that they get the “pass” from the other liberals so they totslly get away with it.

The Chief demonstrates his police-state philosophy, ““A gun is an offensive weapon used to INTIMIDATE and show POWER,” If THAT is not a communist, or fascist, exposing himself nothing else is. Because, entirely despite this man’s dogmatic proclamation of what a firearm is for, the FOUNDERS did not view it that way. They didn’t desire to empower government with ANY ability to “intimidate and show power”. Interestingly, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has the completely opposite opinion. He said, “You can beg for mercy or you can fight back.” Notice, he says “YOU can fight back”, not “the GOVERNMENT can intimidate your attacker”. All California chief Ken James offers is a politically biased opinion that exposes his philosophy…POLICE STATE. “Intimidate…show POWER”. Exactly WHAT makes his opinion more valid than Sheriff Clarke’s?? Nothing…except that liberals are pro-police state, so they agree with James. Also interesting is the fact that Sheriff Clarke’s office is a CONSTITUTIONAL office in the state, where as an appointed chief of a municipal police department is not – James is an appointee of government. Sheriff Clarke is empowered by the constitution of Wisconsin and chosen by constitutional election. Amazing the difference there, no?
Patio, you cited Romans 13, which was speaking of the ruling government officials. Your quote is out of context, thus, invalid. Im a conservative, but if you are going to cite Scripture, cite it in context. That same text says to pay taxes to whom they are due, and honor those in authority…but bet you won;t quote it when talking about the America Revolution, which was over the unwillingness to pay taxes to whom they were due….just saying. (p.s. I am not a big-government type at ALL. I just get irritated when people do not “RIGHTLY handle the word of truth”.

People, you might as well STOP expecting equality from those who falsely claim to promote and value equality. They will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, and ALWAYS have a spin on it to make it,somehow, “different” when such things are done with images or symbols of Obama (or other liberals), but entirely “expressive and acceptable” if done against symbols of Jesus or Christianity…it is just “different”, and always will be….according to THEM.

Yeah, the angel of the Lord would have SUCH a problem with the Tea Party because of their small government positions…He (the angel) would CLEARLY pass right over the MILLIONS responsible for (and defenders of the “right to”) the slaughter of babies in the wombs of their mothers…the blood of the unborn crying out “please don’t kill me. I will love you mommy, just don’t KILL me. I’m sorry for being here in an inconvenient season, I’m sorry for being conceived by a random encounter, I’m sorry for how I was conceived, but please don;t kill me – I just want to live and be loved”…yeah, the angel of the Lord would just glide right over the mega-millions of slaughtered unborn, butchered at the altar of lifestyle-convenience and instead, he would just slice away at the Tea Party folks (most of whom oppose the slaughter) instead . There will indeed be a Day of reckoning (Isaiah 13:9 “Behold, the day of the LORD comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, To lay the land desolate; And He will destroy its sinners from it.”)

No, you are a racist for pointing that out! Well, it makes sense when THEY say it, anyway!

And do we honestly expect anything DIFFERENT from the “tolerant, enlightened, intelligentsia” left? I mean, HONESTLY…why would we expect anything different?

Funny how people say it is “good” that 18000+ Americans will lose their jobs (thanks largely to the AWESOME work of their Unions) because the product, if consumed in excess, is unhealthy. Sounds like the Nanny State folks of New York who clearly cannot be trusted to make wise choices for themselves so they NEED government to step in for them. And here, it is viewed as “good” that thousands more people will e on unemployment and food stamps because someone else might EAT TOO MUCH….that is the mind set that Obamanites generally have. It is “good” to lose so many American jobs (which generate TAX REVENUE…that thing which liberals worship) because they produce something that might be over-consumed….sheesh.

Utterly GHASTLY. Amazing, how the left seems so incapable of taming their tongues…they just can’t HELP themselves, can they?

Just a typical liberal tactic. Proclaim something that they don’t agree with to be, somehow, hateful or “phobic”. Those are bull crap bully words used to TRY to make the opposing position look less credible. The CEO of Chik Fil A has an opinion, based on teachings of his religious beliefs; He is entitled to his opinion, especially since it is based on a religious teaching.The LIBERAL spin has, for decades now, put an illegitimate twist on that,CALLING it hateful, because they truly believe that they have the power over truth and fact to simply pope-ishly proclaim something to be so.They reveal, in actuality, their own hate and intolerance. It is a clever tactic, I confess. Hide your own hate and intolerance by being the FIRST one to allege hate and intolerance.The problem is, just because they SAY it is so,it is still NOT so!!! The liberals are the ones who wish death upon those who differ in opinion. The LEFT is the one who wants to STOP the broadcast of differing opinions. Th LIBERAL is the one who wishes (and often BELIEVES) that government would/should silence the speech of those who have different opinions rather than protect that speech. The left is, by DEED (entirely in spite of their totally bogus claims), the enemy of freedom – they seek the freedom for those with whom THEY agree. Everyone else, they wish to silence-even by means of choking to death on their Chik Fil A; sorry, but that VENOMOUS rhetoric reveals their evil. Even if they SAY it isn’t so.
