i think that’s why he said that – because SOME people follow him, and hopefully these idiots will listen to him and think thru it. doubtful, but hopeful…

actually, no… we all begin with a dirty slate.. and most of us only make it worse thru our lives. If you don’t agree, tell me who taught you how to tell a lie when you were still in diapers, to steal from others, to be disobedient, hateful, etc….
NOBODY taught you that – it comes naturally to humans – we’re all born with a nature that’s deviant. Some of us have parents who beat it out of us, some don’t… Some of us had a meeting with God and He changed us, others haven’t….
But no, NOBODY is born a spotless angel, no matter what fairy dust you want to sprinkle on them.

Good lord, man…..
The U2 is older than almost everyone reading this article. They were designed in the early 50′s, first flown in 1955, probably about the time you were filling diapers.
These things have been duct-taped together for decades, as congress has consistently pork-rolled their favorite programs, and presidents (of all colors and flavors) have consistently said one thing and done another.
The men who fly these things and maintain them do so with the very best of intentions and the highest skill set. And they DAILY rely on each others’ skills to keep themselves alive, around the clock.
You are denigrating great men and women for political purposes. This is not the time.
The U2 is known to be one of the hardest planes to fly. It was never designed to fly. It was designed to be a glider. It is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to take off and land (in fact most of the early crashes were landing & takeoff crashes).
Furthermore this is (was) a trainer unit (the “real” U2 is a single seater). So you had a pilot trying to earn his wings,and a trainer. Sh!! happens when you’re learning. and sh!! happens when you’re flying a 60 year old airplane with a bazillion miles on the clock……
Not to take away from the sentiment but the U-2s currently flying were manufactured in the 1980s. Add the fact that they've been stripped down and having most parts replaced/upgraded. Having worked on army birds I can say that while the Kiowa and Blackhawk entered service around 1970, whats currently beating the air into submission is a far cry from what was put in the air 40 years ago. The Chinook, I had a love hate relationship with, she leaked like a seive but she was a tough bitter witch.
Apache...I've nothing good to say about it.
Enough tangent for now.
They are good for congressmen to keep big money coming into their region for obsolete machines that do nothing to improve intell, but cost a lot to maintain and that looks good at re-election time.
A dark day for the families and the Air Force. Yo, Soylent.. I've read the book, "Apache". Wow, what a bird and those armament system(s)? Whooee, wouldn't want to be on the recieving end of that thing! I've read about the "Loaches" and "Slicks", too, in Viet Nam and they're both still around. My son was a Crew Chief on U2's at Beale and remembers that tail number. I was in the Air Force for twenty and worked C-46's, C47's, C-54's, C-118's, C-121's, C-130's, T-37's, T-38's, F-101's, F-105's, F-4's, EB-66's, many others, and retired working on the F-16 in '84. I'd do it all over again, too!

Yet another reason I carry every day. all day. everywhere I go.
The chances are quite miniscule that I’d ever need it. just like a seatbelt… but then again, I put on my seatbelt every time I get in the car, just in case….
same here, between blm and isis we got plenty here in central ohio to worry about. somali thieves and syrian loafers aplenty already here. black kid shot over the weekend aftyer pulling a bb gun on the cops,,,you never know when the peaceful victims go savage beast.

CNN – clintons news team… you can trust ‘em to carry the water….
more faithful than ANY slaves in the old world – they’ll carry water for her even if it kills ‘em.
Her answer to combat this is to ask Sidney Blumenthal for advice, despite that fact that a) he’s getting money for his info, b) making money off her, c) is NOT cleared to have info that she’s providing him,a nd d) is NOT in service for the country.
standard MO for clintons….. Hillary lies, people die..
 September 19, 2016 at 11:15am
yup… replacement arms for robots are about .025% the cost of a replacement arm for a human.. and eyeballs – priceless…
Digitalguy, Many, many people shoot guns for fun. Hunting, target shooting, skeet are only a couple of fun things people do with guns.
DIGITAL, "Kids need to know that guns kill."
I have to disagree. A 13 year old knows that guns kill. The problem is not black ignorance but rather black indifference.

There are only a few “majors” in my mind: positions for which I CANNOT vote for a candidate.
1. the sanctity of life. Trump has most definitely changed from a squishy prochoice to a staunch pro-life. And his proactive method of putting people in power is solidifying this.
Hillary is a prochoice candidate who is completely in the tank for the abortion industry.
2. the 2nd Amendment.
This is a no-brainer.
She has made commitments to further restrict the 2nd A.
Trump is a solid 2nd A supporter, and has solidified his position by bringing on 2nd A people around him.
– the Supreme Court.
Either candidate will advance his/her values in the Court. We *CANNOT* allow ONE MORE leftist on the court. NOT A SINGLE ONE MORE. This has to be a firewall moment in time. The republic depends on it.
– States’ rights
This is difficult, because while Trump is advocating smaller government and less bureaucracy, we don’t have a track record to lean on.
We do know that Hillary is pro-government (she’s made a living off government her ENTIRE LIFE), and she is not a small government person.
The next 8 weeks WILL determine the direction of our country & our hemisphere for the next 30 years. DO NOT MESS IT UP.
Just to clarify, but you're making assumptions about Trump advocating smaller government/less beaurocracy. He's advocated for a BETTER beaurocracy as far as the work they do/deals they make, but please don't be under an illusion he's for smaller government. His childcare proposal is an expansion of government, his tariff proposal will require an increased beaurocracy, and he's said numerous times that he will punish businesses that do things he disagrees with (such as Ford expanding and building a new manufacturing plant in Mexico instead of the US). He's also said he would spend more money than Hillary in certain areas (infrastructure being the main one) and would increase the Medicare portions of the ACA.
He's still way better than Hillary, yes, but he's still a large government candidate.
I think nominating trump already messed it up. I'm resigned to the fact that we are going to have continuing higher debts, taxes, and bigger governments. Trump will probably bring about more jobs, but freedom is in the balance.

this is so sad… we’ve allowed these idiots to raise idiot kids.. as a result, we’re dealing with cops who fear for their lives whenever they encounter adolescent boys of a particular race….
Unfortunately, and for the most part, the idiots raising these idiots are government idiots. The family has been replaced with bureaucrats, rappers and Hollywood generated violence!
guy : Agree. Unfortunately there is no ' common sense ' test required for either voting or having children.
Watch for a revenge attack on police. Soon!
How generous of you to allow those idiots to have kids.
You are absolutely correct kids not being raised properly.

not bad for an old fart who can’t dance….. I feel his pain – I’m 40 something and couldn’t dance my way off a barrel lid if I had to.. Was kinda fun to see a guy learn some chops…

I don’t think that he is advocating the staunching of the press.
However, in a truly FREE society, the press SHOULD BE HELD TO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE WORDS THEY SAY.
In other words, if you yell “fire” in a theatre and someone breaks a leg in the stampede, you should get punished (and pay for their medical bills).
In the same sense, a press which promotes falsities as truth should be culpable for their dishonesty.. Simply saying “it’s my 1st Amendment rights” is neither right nor moral.
Our society was developed around the moral principle of freedom with responsibility, yet we have tried to divorce the two values from each other. The author here does a good job of reminding us that we won’t have one without the other..

But, a properly rolled blunt is not a bad answer to Parkinsons. I hear there are aspects of Parkinsons which are helped by Mary Jane…
It’s pretty obvious that she’s got Parkinsons Disease..
• uncontrolled ‘irrational’ responses to stress & sudden noise (parkinsons symptom).
• pneumonia (side effect of Parkinsons)
• sudden falls for ‘no reason’ (Parkinsons)
• bad memory (parkinsons)
• tourettes syndrome ( can be related to Parkinsons) – and perhaps serial lying as well?
• fatique (parkinsons)
• stumbling on stairs (parkinsons)
• occasional hand tremors (parkinsons)
• ‘slight of hand’ actions used to mask Parkinsons (holding of fingers & constant hand movement)
But no, i’m sure she’s in perfect health, and would be completely ready for the 3AM phone call….
 September 12, 2016 at 7:38pm
She has Parkinsons – which triggered her fall & concussion several years ago..
Parkinsons often causes pneumonia (muscle control causes one to inhale water while swallowing, eventually leading to pneumonia).
Parkinsons causes dementia.
She’s shown tremors, speech issues, unexplainable siezures, etc…
Parkinsons often leaves one without the ability to handle pressure or decision-making under stress.
The type of Parkinsons she has causes various other anomalies (it can be akin to tourettes, which might explain the serial lying as well).
additionally, there’s NO WAY SHE WAS DEHYDRATED – you don’t ‘pop back up’ from major dehydration after 30 minutes and go out for a jaunt…
she clearly went out of site so she could be medicated for the Parkinsons..
There’s NO WAY this woman should be trusted with the White House.. EVER
Sadly, castration by either knife or chemical is ineffective if among the public. Repeatedly sex offenders after having gone through this will later use objects instead of their member.
No, in cases like his where it was a large gang rape of multiple children the only thing possible to prevent the recidivism is potassium chloride or a dose of 230gr of Pb delivered at 950fps.
I disagree, I would have liked to present data on the subject but after 30 minutes of crawling around US Justice sites I found that for some reason they don't break down the data that way. They seem to list Sex offenders in with the rest of the violent Felons, which if I was a murderer or bank robber I would be offended.
I found that a search for INTERNATIONAL Crime stats was equally unproductive.
I think we have a bigger problem with child sex crimes than we know about.
shogun, my hubby worked on a panel that decided the fate of teachers who had infractions in our state. One time they were impaneled regarding a teacher on charges of molestation. He'd been caught with a kid in a city park restroom. Those defending him were saying what a great guy and a great teacher he was. My hubby stated emphatically that they would not have his vote to reinstate him, as there are often countless offenses before the perv is finally caught. The entire room, except my husband and the moderator elected to reinstate this great guy. Blows the mind.
I will admit I don't have the statistics on hand either. But my information comes from both classes in both college and at training events, as well as more than a decade and a half of LEO/corrections.
I've seen the effects of chemical castration on men, it doesn't stop the drive for sexual activity. It merely keeps it from getting up, so to speak. We had a young man in our confinement facility that voluntarily went in it hoping it would lesson his sentencing, it didn't. He ended up being so disruptive in the sex offender pod we had to move him to an isolation cell.
Adult-child sex crimes are unbelievably common.
The world is sick.
 September 3, 2016 at 11:49pm
agreed.. although, if i had the misfortune of being placed at the same table, I’d figure out someway to ‘bag it’ as well – the woman is about as attractive as the southend of a northbound cow….with diarrhea…
 September 1, 2016 at 10:24am
absolutely not… it’s a funny way to make a great point.
Good fences make good neighbors. We BADLY need a fence with our neighbors. And they need it as badly as we.

too bad the stupid audience couldn’t shut the freak up a bit, and let the father & daughter enjoy the moment…
there’s little that annoys me more than classless fools who can’t just shut up.
