    The problem, regardless of the kids tactics, is there is no legal authority to detain a person (which means pull over and require ID) without suspicion of a crime they have committed. Even if the guy is a jerk it is what it is; the constitution applies to jerks to.

    “They were doing a normal safety stop, nothing wrong with that, he didn’t need to go all 3rd year law student on them,” wrote Brad Delmar. “It was simple, you pull up, give your license and insurance, and be on your way.”—-
    I am not saying I would not comply and move along myself but Brad (above) makes points that I have problems with and any person that feels our nation is bound by its supreme law should also. 1) There is no legal authority for a “normal safety stop.” A person can not be detained without suspicion of a crime so stopping people for screening is not legal (there is something wrong with that). 2) “you pull up give them your lic and insurance and are on your way”…any bets on if brad was saying the “republicans want to randomly ask immigrants for their papers” meme? This is no different then an officer approaching a person for no reason and asking them to turn over their ID while outside walking. That aside, “simple” does not mean legal. If that is all it was why do it? The fact is it is done to fish for people they can then arrest.

    “It turns out the senator was the late Daniel K. Inouye of Hawaii, the decorated veteran and civil rights hero, according to people with knowledge of the incident.”
    –Would the NYT have put all those nice qualifiers in there if it was a Republican that said that? Why do I even waste time to ask this?

    1) Of course she doesn’t need to hide. Most people in Bethesda Maryland likely agree with her (in her neighborhood at least)
    2) If you don’t let your personal opinions affect your work Lois maybe you should not have used your work (read taxpayer funded) email account to relay these “personal” thoughts “unaffecting” of your work. Most private sector people would lose their job simply for using their work email for personal things.
    3) Some one more versed on precedent can answer this for me but if you claim in this interview you did nothing wrong and nothing illegal (ie nothing you said would have incriminated yourself) can you still plead the 5th because that seems like you are then aiding a criminal? If you refuse to testify because you are worried someone else you maybe agree with will get in legal trouble I do not believe is legal (not a spouse). This is not your Miranda rights this is the 5th in a legal hearing. Am I correct in that thought?

    “Please Elect me because of my…I mean scratch that..the jobs plan that some group wrote for me…I mean..stole for me…from other people who have thoughts on this.”

    I know politicians must use consultants to help them but if you rely this heavily on someone or some group to make a plan for you can the people of Wisconsin really rely on you to make judgments of your own? If she is saying she was so removed from the process of making this plan that she was unaware much of the material was plagiarized how on earth can people think she has the ability to govern? Will every decision have to be written up by some out of state firm? She is either mutually guilty of plagiarism or she is incapable of generating her own thoughts to any degree (think about this these were stolen ideas that she apparently liked but did not know enough about them to realize they were stolen??)

    Don’t get me started on “The Separation of Church and State”….they way the American public “understands” this is one of the biggest farces ever perpetuated by

    That was not a vigilant neighbor. A vigilant neighbor would bring the kid home and say “I was not sure if anyone was watching him and I got worried about his safety”…end of story. When the police get called you now traumatize kids; the exact thing these “govt services” are suppose to avoid. Common Sense is gone in govt. Not excusing the mother but I think common sense was ignored here based on the facts as they have been presented.
    I will spare you the “when I was a kid stories.”

    “It doesn’t matter how passionately we’re making out,” Watts told CNN. “It’s my right and my pleasure to enjoy myself.”—-
    That there my friends is America 2014. We are giving up our actual constitutional rights left and right, meanwhile making ridiculous claims that everything we want or desire is a “right”….No ma’am it is not your right to “enjoy (yourself)” in anyway you want anywhere you want. Now in private you and your guy can do whatever you want..but lets understand what a “right” really is.

    Did you miss the other 50 stories on the Blaze? Good luck at CNN, Fox, anywhere they all have fluff pieces; even drudge does. As for the ads I just clicked the x in the upper right…it was fairly easy.

    God loves, forgives, and judges all. We are not able to judge what only He can judge. Christians should voice their concerns about homosexuality just like any other sin but this must be done by showing them God’s love; for this “preacher” to say that God does not care for these people because they have sin in their lives is just wrong. God sent a Son to be killed specifically because he cared for sinners. We all have sinned and all have fallen short. Should we condone gay marriage or homosexuality? No but this will not win any people for Christ. God Bless.

    I think they would tell you marriage by it’s definition is between a man and a woman…so that would not be marriage.
    To my point though; you can say he is biased but the facts he has given for years on cultural decline and the role of marriage in historical society worldwide can not be disputed. Nearly every great empire that fell fell once their culture went away from marriage and attempted “purity” and towards something else.

    I think forgiveness is key and you make an excellent point but, as a world, if we ignore that Islam is being used as the reason (in 2014) to commit atrocities by countless people we are being foolish.

  • September 15, 2014 at 10:54am

    “We repudiate any…who’s beliefs involve the forceful practice of any religion, no matter what their faith and background.”–
    The problem is a significant percentage of Islam following Muslims do exactly what “you” repudiate. His brother would likely be alive if Islam did not exist. This is not to say terrible people will find something to justify what they do (in this case it is Islam with ISIL) but to ignore that Islam is being used by SO many to kill, torture, rape, and terrorize is foolish. This is 2014, it is not the middle ages.

    I think the fact that the Pledge is now considered political says a whole lot about the left. If the pledge is political (we can assume they mean is in support of the right) then that would imply there is a side that is against it or feels it attacks them (which would then be the left).
    –My other question is: since when can political ads not run on TV I am seeing them all the time in MN by Al and his opponent.

    Fast Forward: One of those brave officers shoots one of the “unarmed” thugs after catching them and the kid reaches for the officers gun…..people are then outraged at the police.
    Apparently un-armed people can hurt you….this is why I arm myself and my wife arms herself. My advice to her is don’t stop shooting until they fall down and stay down. If they have a weapon don’t stop until it appears they can no longer move….the weapon.

    I am sure the woman would also not object to the following plates:
    JEWSRCK
    K!LLGAZA
    JEWSWIN
    GAZAPIG
    (need I keep going for this point?)
    –The real issue is come on DMV are we to obsessed looking for conservative plates to deny that we forgot to read this one?

    Although I don’t think it is needed to personally insult everyone especially when she is forced to rectify what the admin is doing BUT if you look back over the many months both state spokeswomen do not come across as commanding the room and have made their fair share of flubs and laughable “dodges”. That I think is a legitimate issue.

    This notion that “the white house/Washington travels with the President” is a farce. Sure he can at any time reach someone and order an attack ect but logic must be applied here:
    Logical correlations:
    1) I am at a board meeting with all my business partners talking about urgent business related things.
    2) I have a cell phone, satellite internet connection, and remote access while I am away from this meeting and from a hotel or my home I am engaging with my team/partners via these devices.
    3) I have all the devices from 2 but I am at a party, the golf course, or other event where I am not actively interacting with them but they are there if I need to.
    –The president is in situation 3. Just because he is able to use said devices does not mean that somehow as he golfs, fund-raises, or goes to events he is actively addressing the urgent needs it simply means he is capable of doing so if he were to step away from the things he is attending or doing. VERY different situations.

    The problem they missed is you need to weave and speed.
