I know someone who had a TBI. It greatly affected her ability to think quickly, especially when under pressure.

zappa – and you listened and saw the rest of the video, right? Where after they shot him they shot the **** outta the car the others were in? They were scared to exit the car and the feds had a field day. Tried really hard to kill them so there would be no witnesses.

Yes. You want our aid, you get to hear the lectures about your bad behavior.

It’s all about race, right? It can’t be about policies, or character. It’s race. Because that’s all that matters.

Older single mothers get pregnant in real life and don’t even consider abortion. Not everyone thinks of abortion right away when they see the results of the pee test.

I agree he’s ungrateful. But he was born here so he is a citizen and as such has a right to free speech. My right is to boo him and not support his team with my dollars.
She should not be censured. She has a right to speak about her beliefs even if they are stupid.
Just don’t vote her in next time if you don’t like her.

• The injustice of police brutality — the refusal to mandate police body cameras – who is going to pay for this? More white people are killed by police per capita than others races.
• The injustice of poverty — the underfunding of our public schools – oh my God. Are they still believing that if we throw more money at a broken system it will start working?
• The injustice of voter suppression — passing Voter ID laws – we need voter ID cards. The last presidential election, in some places in Phila and around it, over %100 of the voters voted for our current president. We need to stop fraud. Require an ID and if you are on gov’t assistance you get an ID card free.
• The injustice of not having health care — not expanding Medicaid – Ummmm, wasn’t Obama Care supposed to fix all things health care related?
• The injustice of unlivable wages — refusing to raise minimum wage and the right-to-work attack on labor – this is just so stupid I can’t even talk about it.
• The injustice of unequal pay for women – debunked over and over
• The injustice of mass incarceration – I do agree we need to overhaul the prison system. Not just because so many of a certain race are in there, however. But because it’s inhumane as it is now.
• The injustice of economic disparity – some people make more money than others. We can’t all be rich.
You claim that all of this has been refuted. Maybe in your feeble mind, but not mine. Your points have been discredited but I continue to hear them. Why is it that the right now thinks it okay to lie about everything? Just saying it doesn't make it true. But I have noticed that either you don't care or are not just smart enough to realize you have been taken for the fool.
Yep. And when decade after decade of increased government intervention has failed so miserably, the obvious answer is more government intervention...sigh...am I the only one tired of this damn cycle?

Lauer HATES conservatives. I just cannot stand to watch him interview anyone who is vaguely conservative because he is so obviously biased.
Freedom of speech.
He moved his car instead of his flag pretty savvy kid.
We've learned so far that Freedom is ONLY of the Progressive Libtards and their Handlers.
It's a good thing nobody has a problem with the color gray.
“Racist!” is such a convenient accusation. After shouting it, all discussion stops, and the other person is shamed, fined, fired or arrested. Those usually shouting it are the racists.
Our school had the confederate flag. My family was against secession, but we still liked the flag, it was kind of a 60s rebellion thing, nothing to do with racism in our minds.
Pretty soon “white” sugar will have to be tinted to avoid offending these people.
If someone showed up with a BLM flag, would they get the same treatment?
Poor Iowa has been invaded by Illinois Democrat immigrants.
No wonder it turned Blue
Well, I have no doubt that the gay rainbow flag could not be displayed on campus because it might cause some students pain, right? Same goes for the Mexican flag and any black power / black klan flags, right?
"An Iowa high school student was asked to remove a Confederate flag flying from the car he drove to school because administrators feared the controversial banner could lead to violence."
Violence from whom? The white guy with the flag? If not him then, again, who? I thought white people were the only racists on the planet. I thought white people were the only violent people on the planet. I thought white people were the only ones oppressing others. If the white guy is the one with the flag, are they afraid another white guy is going to attack him?
Sounds like the school know a little more than they are willing to admit.
Freedom to display one's ignorance of the true history of that flag, too. If these students were taught REAL history rather than the fluffy, feel good, revised history they might understand the Confederate flag. The student displaying the flag should have come back with, "Yeah, well the ignorance being displayed causes ME harm and I might feel harmed enough to carry this to court to have MY constitutional rights protected." Bullies tend to respond to strong push back since they are, at their core, cowards.
Good for Bethany, she is correct and the school is wrong. In 1913, there was a 50 year reunion of Civil War veterans in Gettysburg, Pa. There were about 50,0000 who attended the 4 day reunion from every state both north and South. There was not one flag problem so how could we do so much less 100 years later and those who fought under those flags. I challenge anyone at the school to respond to my comment. We have to keep things in perspective and we can not afford to be ignorant about our history.
Why honor traitors to the United States?
Do we have military bases honoring Benedict Arnold? Dixie has always been a malignant tumor and a cesspool.
Dixie is an embarrassment to the United States and to Christianity.
Colin Kaepernick (sp?) decides to sit on his butt during the National Anthem. This is hurtful to many people, especially to vets and their families, but the left rallies and claims free speech. Those of us on the right largely respond, yes he has a right to protest, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a right to call him an idiot.
A kid takes a Confederate flag to school. Those on the right say Free Speech! The left says we believe in free speech, but this is really hurtful so it needs to be banned. Or, they argue that someone may assault him for exercising his free speech, so it should be banned.
Personally, I think both of them are idiots, but they do have the right to free speech. Plus, I won’t watch either one of them play football.
Nope. This is not a free speech issue. He has the right to fly his flag without the Gov'r putting him in jail. He does not have the right to express himself in any way he sees fit on school grounds. For example, he can call his teachers F*$#@$s without worrying about going to jail (because that is protected speech under the 1st Amendment). Bur he does risk getting tossed out of school for it. Why does everyone seem to have such a hard time understanding this?
liberals and BLM thugs complaining causes me pain... Can we remove them?
The civil war was all about slavery.
Dixie is not noted for intellect and education.
Today, it is noted for freaky religious BS and bigotry.
That was disrespectful to put that Confederate flag on that car.
The Stars and Bars should only be allowed on vehicles that don't look so beat up.
How about an F350, or maybe a Tahoe?
Have some respect.
I don't own or display a confederate flag. Does that mean I'm a great American with Social Justice values? It should give me a lot of Social Justice points in my column. Maybe if I oppress people that might oppress other people's feelings my points would grow to new heights. Just thinking.
Why is it only free speech when a liberal democrat speaks, blm block sidewalks and streets, Trump supporters are beaten at rallies or hillary is allowed to lie under oath to the FBI or Congress?
When someone burns the American flag it causes me pain and it is disrespectful. But that is called freedom of speech so let the confederate flags wave.
It's true, and I think there's enough court precedent that protects his right to do this specifically.
Although I wonder if reactions would be the same if a middle-eastern student decided to fly an ISIS or Saudi Arabia flag.

He is doing this to expose corruption in high places. That’s his agenda.
 September 2, 2016 at 11:22am
He IS more of a liberal. But he does not like corrupt governments and people in power.this has nothing to do with conservatism vs liberalism.
 September 2, 2016 at 11:17am
Clinton wants a war wtih Russia. Or at least a cold war. There must be money in it for her somewhere.
[-1] September 2, 2016 at 10:38am
He has a right to not stand.
But his reason is so idiotic to me. If he wants to do something, take some of his riches and help inner city young black men get help to get work.
Now that's not fair. Rapes happen when people are oblivious. In this case, the administration of the school seems to be negligent.

“It’s hilarious to watch their ‘free will’ argument blow up in their face when you point out that either god is all knowing or we have free will.There is no ‘both’ scenario.”
One poster said this. Can you not envision someone can know everything but free will still exists? Just because God works outside of what we understand as time, and knows every single thing that has happened, is happening, and will happen, does not mean He is moving the chess peices. He is not making things happen, we are, and He knows it all.

You can’t possibly be reading the bible and say this. Right away when I read the story, “it is appointed to men once to die”: came to mind. Live once, die once.
August 30, 2016 at 3:25pm
Of course he is free to protest this way. No matter how stupid it makes him look.
And it has not been proven statistically that police kill more blacks. They have more encounters with blacks, but that has to do with the high crime rate in black communities.
