What’s funny is-I have never-not one time-heard a school administrator, or a parent, say a kid was “too poor” to run a 40 yard dash. Or “too poor” to shoot free throws, or get to practice or games. I have said this for years (and one reason I no longer teach), if we treated the students in the classroom the same way we treat them on the basketball court or football field, their performance would go up. Instead, we make excuses for continued ignorance-most of it voluntary.

Good point. As usual,there are always two sides to each story-the media always seems to forget that.

These guys must have advisers on Obamacare-that is the ULTIMATE in magical thinking.

So, he’s for it….before he’s against it? Or Vice versa? Why does that sound familiar?

2nd degree murder? If he went back to the house-armed-sounds like it was premeditated.
Yep, to me also. It's FIRST degree murder, nothing less
About time to reinstall those gallows...
Wait, he was already a felon making it illegal for him to have a gun. How was he able to get one? Must be some mistake in the story....
EXACTLY my point.
Now, the media keeps going on about how white people are evil, and are killing blacks with impunity. But the truth looks quite a bit different. Every time I go on line, some black man has just killed a white person. The coverage is so dishonest. If it were the other way around, trust me, black people would know it for real. Not this illusion they carry on about. Be thankful we hold to a higher social decency.
That is "affirmative action" justice.
He was such a good boy , dssmokin. He dinna do nuffin. He be wanna to start school as soon as his elementary school pictures are developed.
Can someone explain to me why this dirt bag shouldnt be executed? Seriously?
If we can shoot and kill terrorist, why cant we just dispose of these animals?
It wasn't his fault it was the donald trump like thing on his chin controlling him. 1st degree, absolutely followed by capital punishment. Its sad to say but a 12ga mossberg in the house would have changed the ending to this story. God bless the families of the 2 victims.
I blame global warming.

Bingo. Just another dumazz Dem trying to show his low IQ electorate that he actually does something. Pathetic

I wonder how many of these tech CEO’s support Hillary and her income redistribution mantra?
 February 18, 2016 at 1:17pm
The GOP doesn’t have a platform to NOT care for the poor. Quite the opposite-the GOP-the vast majority of us-don’t want us perpetually KEEPING people poor. We also think it’s mindless to pay someone more to stay poor, than to assist them in getting out of it. Prime example-child care is available to those going to school. Yet those funds disappear when that person gets a job-any job. It would make much more sense to gradually eliminate the benefit as their income increases, yet the way the system is set up, it would cost the parent MORE to get a job than to simply stay in school. THAT’S what is ridiculous. We help them get educated to get a job, then penalize them for actually getting it. Liberalism at its finest.

What’s surprising-and perhaps a bit telling about the collective IQ of the American public-is that those who demean and criticize Christians, will at the same time embrace Muslims. Last time I looked, Christians pose no threat-overt or otherwise-to anyone. To openly chastise a tolerant religion to coddle one known for violent intolerance is the height of stupidity.
Well you obviously didn't read the post. And for the record you didn't look close enough because there was a time when Chrisitan Protestants and Christian Catholics posed a very big threat to each other. And there were and are just a few chrisitans who have shot and killed physicians who provide women's reproductive services and harass patients seeking to attend obtain those services. And in the new wild west "stand your ground" states one of these patients could claim they felt threatened and shoot someone as a response. And perhaps the NRA would send them money to defend their action under stand your ground. Ok now back to rational land. And in that world, as the founding fathers would point out, one's faith in terms of how it guides their actions is certainly welcome in the public sphere. On the other hand religion is not welcome in the public sphere and has no purpose in governing.
Many Americans, including myself, believe that the vast majority of Muslims are good people and the violent ones are mislead extremists. On a day to day basis, your average American does not have a bad experience with the average Muslim. However there are a significant number of Christian Americans, possibly a majority, that do not come off as loving. In fact they are perceived as judgmental and controlling. Many Americans drink alcohol, don't go to church regularly, have premarital sex, smoke marijuana, are friends/family with a homosexual, etc. and are, in fact, not evil people and see no real harm by doing said things. While many Christians might disagree, there is a general tone of judgement often followed by legislation which is not appreciated.
Clearly a paid post and a crock.
All non-Christians will do almost anything to bash Jesus.
Look who and what is "acceptable" religions to talk about in schools.
“Your hopes are always going to be dashed if you view any politician as a Messiah or savior,” he said.
Sooo. Like many did with Obama in 2008. And like many are doing now with Trump?
"Christians pose no threat-overt or otherwise-to anyone"
Which is why death threats don't come pouring in against anyone who openly opposes them...
Oh wait, they do.
It's the result of the media, academia, and Hollywood. It only takes a handful of people to fundamentally change a culture.
The whole harmless act isn't going to cut it. One would have to ignore history completely to buy that. The best you can hope for is to be known as the lesser of evils.
No they don't! Secularist don't want any religion given preference. Nut job ultra liberals might, but they are as stupid as the ultra right evangelicals.
the major moral change is the complete lack of any...America is Sodom/Gamorah 2.0
“For the first time in history evangelicals’ views especially on morality are being viewed as not only morally inferior, but really morally bad and reprehensible,”
A Christian follows the teachings of Christ. If you don't follow the teachings of Christ, quit referring to yourselves as Christians. Even devils knew and respected Christ (Biblically supported).
@dwsmokin the collective IQ and collective attitude especially of today’s youth is driven by the media. They are the computer, earbud, don’t talk to me I’m on the internet junkies. The media being stuffed down their/our throats is provided by the most progressive anti Christian, anti heritage, anti founder, anti freedom bi peds in existence. Those millions of drones are fed non stop propaganda molded and served on a progressive platter. Media controls attitudes and what’s in or out, and nobody especially the young wants to be doing whats out.
Ashford said. “So, I am not fully and completely at war with any human being and there’s no human being who’s fully and completely evil.”
So, I guess Jihad John (the Britain that joined ISIS & sliced off heads of numerous people with glee) sells Girl Scout Cookies on his off-days or goes and volunteers at the old-folks home?
I have to disagree with this guy. First off, while only one man was sin free (and rose again on the 3rd day after being crucified), I can easily believe that there are people that are completely evil. Further, I think there are more and more of them each day. Raping children, burning people alive, drowning them in cages, lopping heads off of children. I'm sorry, I say they have nothing good in them.
Christians want to deny women from having an abortion. They want to oppose their rights to birth control.. Christians want the bible taught in public schools. Christians want to turn America into a theocracy.
So for you to say that Christians pose no threat is a freaking joke.

Hmm, in criticizing the possibility of electing an openly Christian president, is Joy indicating that our current POTUS is not Christian? Despite his many protestations to the contrary? Interesting.
Wll we did have the recent experience of electing Jimmy (killer rabbit Earl Carter)and William Jefferson (skirt chaser) Clintonboth of whom trumpeted their religiosity-both turned out badly-and Unca'Billy-
Bob laid the foundation for Her Inevitability, Killaru Rotten Klinton, she of the Mogadishuand Benghazi murders, the femi-NAZI coven in the white House, and the wholesale betrayal of National Secrets, and the bald-faced lying about damn near everything.Wed have done better with SZandor LeVey!

Not sure where you live, buy my experience has been the exact opposite. I’ve lived in KY, AL, TN and FL, and for the most part, the “rednecks” I know are exactly as Larry described. Are there some who are indeed racist? Sure. But for the most part, it seems the left likes to group everyone who lives in rural America as their definition of “redneck”. I’ve also lived in Cincinnati and Cleveland, and run into far more racism in those cities. Odd how that works.
The current MSM accepted definition of the word racist is: "White people" so you may be right.

Funny thing-we already have a federal law banning automatic weapons. We also have a federal law banning heroin and cocaine (yet I’m sure Whoopi knows dozens of people who readily have both available). We also have a federal law banning illegal immigration. These federal laws have been soooo successful-and yet they feel another one on guns will magically solve all our problems. Delusional-just like every other lib I’ve ever met.

Some good points there, but we seem to do a poor job these days of teaching our kids appropriate behavior? This kid happens to be from Somalia (I really don’t care), but ANY kid in that environment needs to learn appropriate responses. How many stories do we see ( or hear from our kids) of students treating teachers like garbage, and fighting in the classroom, with each other AND the teacher. I’ll be the first to admit that the requirements for being a teacher are suspect (and ingrained in our system through the union), but they are supposed to be the authority figure in the classroom, and should be treated as such. Quite frankly, I’m all for a teacher who is assaulted to respond with beating the crap out of the offender, but that’s just me.

While this story is tragic, it does reinforce one basic element of human beings, as well as human nature-people do stupid things. Some are stupid on paramount levels. When that happens-as it obviously did here-the current narrative is to blame it on something, or someone else. People need to take ownership of their own stupid actions.On a planet with a few billion people, millions make various degrees of stupid decisions on a daily basis-and pay the price for them. Obviously she did as well.

There is a lynchmob mentality among people, a bloodthirsty, barbaric trait that we can’t seem to eradicate, even with all our political correctness and blind devotion to “peace”. The sooner we can admit that-and address how to deal with it-the better off we’ll be.
If you are talking muslims and lots of collateral damage, I agree.
This mentality exists because of societal unfairness and because of Communist, Nazi, Fascist and Islamic dogma. Eradicate all of that and the world will see peace over time. Since the beginning of human society someone has always though they knew better or they could have something someone else has. We have million, maybe billions of people on this planet that are willing to live and get along but somewhere along the way people became selfish and bitter. Just part of the evolutionary process of which we are in the toddler stage to say the least.
Mudslimes are in the streets of Europe with bullhorns promising to kill white men, rape their white wives and give them brown babies. The Murder gene bred into the human race forever! Glad I won't live long enough to see that!

It is a threat. Let’s face it-historically, Muslims as a rule do not “assimilate”. They do not “blend”, nor do they accept a role as simply a part of a society. In this case, they are using the laws and politically correct sensitivities of the US against us, and it’s working. I’m not anti-Muslim, but the simple fact is, at this particular point in time, they pose the biggest threat to any western nation. I recall commercials for stockbrokers that were required to use the language, “past performance is not indicative of future results.”, but in this case, past-as well as present-performance of the Muslim world is ENTIRELY indicative of future results. A bit of prevention and caution is nothing if not common sense.
