I’ve had cabs pass me several times to pick up someone else a few hundred feet down the road. I’ve also had a lot of cabs obviously on duty and empty pass me by while I was waving furiously at them. I guess I’m saying I’m going to need more evidence before I’m ready to accept that this particular incident had anything to do with race.

All generalizations, including this one, are false.
Pointing that out really offers little value. It’s obvious oldcowgirl is generalizing. If you want to disagree with her point you need to prove that it’s not true in the general sense.

Radical muslims are leading the way in fostering an “anti-muslim” environment. But, of course, the DNC can’t even say “radical muslim” so… they have to blame CNN I guess.

It’s not a religious issue. It’s a cultural issue. We should not let people into this country unless they love us and they want to embrace our culture.
The problem with Islam is that it’s much more than just a religion. It’s a religious, political and legal system rolled up into one. When their population gets large enough in a nation they begin to demand sharia law. Do you want to see that happen in America?!?!

Couldn’t care less about gambling, but I do care about federal overreach and political corruption and this seems to be a perfect example of both.
Exactly. Politics and government are always about choosing the lesser of two evils. Gambling is not "fun". There is nothing good about gambling, just like there is nothing good about governments. They are simply two different forms of evil.
So you have the evil of government corruption and government power vs. the evil of private gambling over the internet. When placed on the scales, the clear choice is that private gambling on the internet is WAY less evil than an encroaching powerful government full of corrupt people who are taking money from casinos to implement laws.

It’s entirely possible (even probable) that his argument is based on financial burden because that gives him the best legal standing. It would be naive to assume that is his primary or only concern.

There are many issues where Dershowitz and I disagree, but ever since I read his book: “A case for Israel” I’ve realized there are some issues where we are in total agreement.
You know what they say about 'broken clocks' and all.

A conservative pragmatist wants the most conservative candidate who can win. But this is just a ploy to get people to vote for a moderate. The establishment wants a moderate because they believe by doing this they can win middle America and still get the conservative’s vote. The problem is that many conservatives simply don’t show up to vote when voting for a moderate is their only option.
So this year I’m with you. Popular appeal will play no part in my choice this primary season. I’m voting for the candidate who convinces me they are the best. Right now that’s Cruz.
Thank you Dr.!
We are simpatico on that.
I am one of those that will no longer hold my nose and pull the lever for "The lesser of two evils".
Lesser evil is still evil.
Anyway, thanks again I thought I was alone.

This article has nothing to do with where Obama or Cruz was born. It’s about an effort to pass a bill that 20 years ago would have been considered common sense.
Are you just not interested in the topic or are you deliberately trying to change it?

Another well written post Matt. A few years ago Glenn put it very succinctly:
“America is great because America is good. When America ceases to be good, it will cease to be great.” – GB
I believe he was paraphrasing someone else at the time, but the point is dead on.
Romans 1:18-32 tells you exactly what happens to a society who denies the truth. It’s exactly what’s happening to our society today.

“I would encourage you to spend just as much time focusing on the president’s actions as you do his words,” – Josh Earnest
When did he fight to receive christian refugees from that part of the world?
I’ve paid attention to his words and his actions. Both are deplorable.
Actions????? His putting game or his ability to place his balls on the fairway for all to see while patriots die.

I think you’re giving Trump too much credit. If he was this brilliant I think he could give more specifics when pressed by reporters.
That being said, I do think we need a wall, e-verify, large fines for businesses that hire illegals, etc. And Trump “might” get that done.
“Donald Trump will restore sanity.” – I disagree. I think he will simply replace the current form of insanity with his own form. Would it be an improvement? Without a doubt – but that doesn’t mean he’s the best candidate running for the position.
He's definitely NOT the best candidate running. Wayne Root is just drinking the juice. I swear, sounds like he wants to kiss him.
First, "self deportation" was not Trump's plan. As a matter of fact, he went as far as to claim that Mitt Romney's idea to self deport...
"The Republican Party will continue to lose presidential elections if it comes across as mean-spirited and unwelcoming toward people of color"-Donald Trump on why Romney lost his Presidential bid.
"Whether intended or not, comments and policies of Mitt Romney and other Republican candidates during this election were seen by Hispanics and Asians as hostile to them" Trump said.
“The Democrats didn’t have a policy for dealing with illegal immigrants, but what they did have going for them is they weren’t mean-spirited about it,” Trump says. “They didn’t know what the policy was, but what they were is they were kind.”
Romney’s solution of “self deportation” for illegal aliens made no sense and suggested that Republicans do not care about Hispanics in general, Trump says.
“He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal,” Trump says. “It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote,” Trump notes. “He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”
It is brilliant to NOT give specific answers when he doesn't need to. The general comments let you form your own idea in your head that you agree with. A specific answer can be argued. He'll get through the republican nomination this way, and then negotiate a plan with immigrants that gets him to beat the Democrats. See my other comment about Scott Adam's analysis, after reading it, you'll understand what is happening. And also why people refuse to believe that it is intentional that he has been on top for 6+ months...

The only people who don’t love Carson are liberals who can’t stand to see a conservative who doesn’t fit their “the RNC is a bunch of old white guys” narrative.
Carson is the type of person I’m proud to call a fellow American.

My top five are Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Jindal and Paul. I’m not going to list them from highest to lowest ranking for me but I will say that I’ve committed to voting for whoever wins the debates overall. And, in my opinion, Cruz has won every debate so far (despite his flub in naming the department of commerce twice).
It isn't the accuracy of the charge against the Republican that matters.
It is the fact that a large amount of the low-info (actually NO INFO) voters will be presuaded by the first thing they hear.
Facts don't matter when you are doing a character assassination.
Dr . Agree. Am sick of the jack-booted Lefties who sponsor all of the divisive OWS , BLM , and MSM Character Assassinations political goons . Am sure they are hoping for an Alinsky-modeled, citizen over-reaction while Obama still heads the Executive Branch. Am beginning to understand European history in the 20s and 30s which was largely the result of failed economies and Left wing anarchists who brought the chaos people grew tired of.
