    @spanky,
    Could I have used different words? Certainly, if I were a PC snowflake. However, the original poster used the “punching” metaphor, and my response did as well. It is pretty clear that I wasn’t being literal.

    But I’ll tell you what. I can understand that reading my posts might cause you some distress and cause you to encounter thoughts and ideas that you may find disturbing. So, if you see the name Daithi as the author of a post then you should probably consider it a trigger warning and only read at your own peril.

    I was never a fan of the Bushes. Reagan was basically forced to except Bush as his running mate to placate the establishment wing of the Republicans. Bush then mouthed conservative principals, but he was still a progressive Republican at heart, and so was his “compassionate” Republican son.

    The Bushes have done more to destroy the Reagan legacy than any Democrat.

    So if they were going to vote for Hillary and then voted for Johnson, you think this counts equally against Trump as well?

    I think I’d rather vote for Colin Kaperdickhd.

    This is also another reason why NOT voting for Jeb! was a good decision.

    I’m Irish and love hearing a good Irish joke. We’re either drunks, IRA terrorists, or tend to rape the sheep. Well, at least I’m not Polish. ;-)

    I remember when Serena Williams took some stupid girl to task for getting raped when she went to a house full of drunk guys at 2:00 am in the morning. She wasn’t blaming the girl by stating that she deserved to get raped, or that the guys who raped her shouldn’t go to prison for what they did, but she did say the girl was stupid for going to the “party”. She was just pointing out that you have to take some responsibility for your own safety and not be stupid.

    I think the same thing applies here. The people in the crowd that were trying to give him a beat down should be prosecuted for assault. Nevertheless, this guy is still a moron. Who cares if you are in the “right” if you get your dumbass beat to death.

    Dang it. The last paragraph should have said—
    Trump’s problem wasn’t that he was punching back. Trump’s problem was that he was flailing around blindly and not being the effective fighter he should have been.

    I don’t think punching back in the head was his problem. During the primaries he was able to punch effectively without an issue.

    However, in this debate, he didn’t perform as well as he should have. Instead, he was often meandering in his answers and couldn’t stay focused. For example, he was whining about Hillary’s negative ads. All candidates have negative ads, so complaining about her having them was just dumb. At the same time he kept missing huge opportunities to punch her in the face (metaphorically). They asked about cyber warfare, and Trump did not blast Hillary for setting up a private email server that was apparently in a spare bathroom at one point. How can you trust her with the nations secrets when she is so incompetent? Furthermore, it is her penchant for deceiving the public that leads to this incompetence. They brought the Iran nuclear deal and Hillary argued that it was a good deal. He should have destroyed her on this assertion. He just didn’t.

    Trump’s problem was that he was punching back. Trump’s problem was that he was flailing around blindly and being the effective fighter he should have been. As another poster pointed out — not fighting back hard didn’t work out too well for McCain and Romney. Hopefully, Trump will practice and land more blows next time.

    When speaking to most snowflake college students,
    I use the word — dumbass — as a pronoun.

    I agree that “fallen” does not apply to a MLB player who died in a boating accident, but I do see this man’s loss of life as tragic. I’m also pretty sure you would have never seen Fernandez taking a knee during the National Anthem.

    DSMike and SLEAZY are both right. The Constitution guarantees us freedom of speech that the government cannot infringe upon, but it used to be that most Americans and certainly colleges embraced these principles. It is a shame that so many colleges and media outlets have decided to no longer cherish the concept of freedom of speech.

    BTW, excepting federal money does not require a private institution to now follow the first amendment as other posts have suggested. Actually, one of the things the Constitution guarantees is the right to freedom of association. So the government shouldn’t be able to tell us who we decide to associate with or with whom we decide not to associate. Although this right has been ignored for about a century now with the advent of civil rights laws. Personally, I like the civil rights laws, but they should have been implemented as a Constitutional Amendment.

    Good for Tebow, but let’s keep this in perspective. This is Instructional League ball. It’s not even AA ball.

    Why is it the “conservative” Media Research Center?

    Why isn’t it the left-wing Politico, or the liberal NPR, or the left leaning U.S. News & World Report. or the ultra progressive MSNBC, or… you get my point.

    I think the news media needs to start being held accountable for perpetuating a false narrative that puts police officers lives at risk and divides the nation along racial lines. If the incident resulted due to an individual not complying with clear police instructions, and officers have a justifiable belief that they can be in danger, then it isn’t news.

    Don’t report it as if there is a question of a racial issue. If you report it at all, then report it as another individual refused to comply with officer commands which resulted in his death. As a public service announcement — Please comply with police commands. It is not worth your life to escalate a situation into a full blown confrontation. If you believe police are abusing their authority then this can be addressed at a later time, but not when weapons are drawn.

    If the police shoot an unarmed man that is complying with their orders then that is news. Otherwise, it just isn’t.

    Actually, this reminds me of a South Park episode. Cartman posts a picture of himself on Facebook without a shirt and asks, “Do I looked buffed?” Of course he gets made of.

    The school counselors solution is for Cartman to stop posting pictures of himself on Facebook without his clothes on (Mmm kay). The Principal objects and says, “No! Cartman should not be subjected to body shamming. So we will have another student read all of Cartman’s social media text and delete anything that is derogatory.”

    Hilarious episode. Unfortunately, the episode is practically real.

    I can’t stand Trump, but to be honest, this isn’t something that would make me vote against him. If you don’t want someone commenting on your looks and weight then don’t enter a beauty pageant.
