It's not about "skin color" it's about culture, unless you're too dull to not notice the current black "thug" culture in our nation, that promotes criminality, immorality, and personal cowardice.

Obama and his “I know nothing” response to everything reminds me of the monarchy in England; they really know nothing about what is going on in their country, they are just figure heads.
The real government is run somewhere else.
The problem with Obama’s crew is that if he knows nothing and everything is run by his department heads…then how can those department heads also no nothing.
How far down the chain do we have to go to find the people that are actually running the country?

Here’s the problem; the story incomplete.
The only video we have is post-incident.
I can’t believe this amount of force was warranted for this incident and for a perpetrator this age….
what I think many here miss is the digression of manners and respect for authority in today’s youth..
children are taught no respect (or consequences) toward police, elders, or teachers…
they believe they can speak with impunity toward anyone…
and the age at which they believe they are equals keeps getting younger!
I’m not saying this was the case with this young boy, but think about it…had he simply said,
“I’m sorry officer, we were just playing around, and my Mom is right over there.”
Would any of this have happened?

We not only need Christians to take a stand against this garbage, but we should have a group of Constitutional lawyers take on these cases. The ACLU has made such drastic inroads into perverting the seperation of church and state that people actually believes it exists!
Jefferson coined the phrase in 1801 as president. It was in response to one church hearing that another church was going to be deemed the State church. He told the first church not to worry, the Constitution created a wall of separation between church and state, it ensured the State could not interfere in the affairs of the church, BUT that religion would not be removed from government!
As a side, Jefferson got Congress to approve funds to print Bibles!
The liberal re-write of seperation occurred in 1948 with an FDR appointed Supreme Court, which was the first time the government attempted to keep Christianity out of government. Before that time no American government official even considered religiosity in government a problem.
GET BACK TO THE FOUNDERS UNDERSTANDING!
And fight for it.

As one of the remaining conservatives on the Left Coast (California), I have been fighting the good fight for years. Increasingly I am ready to jump ship; only a decent job opportunity preventing me.
I lived in Texas for two years and prefer it…only wish I could take the SoCal weather with me.
No surprise California ranks last. In the last election the State finally elected a veto proof legislature. Immediately they increased taxes on sales and other hidden areas. Would be nice to split the State in half but unfortunately the white hippie liberals run the north, and the victim-spouting, illegal immigrant vote-reliant politicians control the south.
Glad to know there are two of us left in Ca. I would move out tomorrow but trapped with a pension I would have to pay Ca. taxes on whether I live here or not. Worked all my life here. Figure if they want my taxes they can put up with me. Couldn't believe Gov. Moonbeam won again.
You know if we just stripped off the first 50 miles along the coast the rest of the state is pretty descent folks. Hell I would give up the beach weather for a reasonable rational population and government.
Good luck moving to Texas. Get out if you can. I waited too long.
I suspect California would be a nicer place to live if we could just delete the 1.5 million invalid and fraudulent voter registrations in the State of California. Nothing is going to change til that happens. But I keep hoping.

What a moronic comparison of completely unrelated subjects.
Perhaps the majority of Republicans (and whatever Democrats) believe global warming is overblown is in the multitude (albeit minority) of science saying global warming has little or nothing to do with the humankind and more to do with millenia of cyclical global variations. Why was the Earth warmer in Jesus’ time than now?
The foolish attempt to insinuate that Christians believing in an end-time scenario then makes them less responsible or caring of the Earth’s conservation is utterly ridiculous. One has nothing to do with the other!
One of the commands of Christianity is to be good stewards of what God gives you, including the Earth. Many conservationist movements and replenishment of resources were started by Christians.

This is a stupid debate. The marriage debate is two-fold.
#1. Marriage is a religious institution, not a government one. It is a church rite, not a secular one. Government should only record domestic contracts…man-woman, brother-sister, brother-brother…solely for property settlement. Marriage should be done in a church and have no government involvement.
#2 Marriage was created (by God) for procreation! Family was the basis for marriage, not love. All studies show the healthiest children, and hence the next generation, are best reared in a two parent heterosexual environment (all things being equal), Whether couples decide to get married and not have children is insignificant to the stated purpose of family and children that is the norm.
A religious man like Reagan might tolerate homosexual couples as a legitimate entity, it is not the equivalent of heterosexual unions due to the stated purpose of that union.
@ezekiel2230... spot on guy! Couldn't have put it better.

The ad is stupid and bizarre, but what bothers me the most is some six-figure execs…advertising and management saw it and green-lighted it.
Where can I get one of these jobs?

Why is it the media celebrates an athelete coming out to world about being gay, but if another speaks out of the political correctness box, liberals want to shut down his free speech and he’s suddenly a jerk?
Im part American Indian (sorry libs, Ingedinous is stupid and I’m a Native American from being born here). Like others have said, many mascots represent courage and power. Never had a problem with the uses. There were two high schools where I grew up…the Cowboys and the Indians.

Some of the idiots on this site, who believe everything the government says, but call investigative reporting conspiracy wacko-ism if it falls outside their own belief system, remind me of those who would have said, “what are those conspiracy theorists Woodward and Bernstein doing saying some Cuban burglers have to do with the President and his Administration?”
Afterward they were hailed for decades for their brilliant investigation.
Beck could be running off on a rabbit trail, he might also be forcing the government to expose some coverup…only time will tell.
And why is it that I see xenophobe thrown about anytime anything is said regarding Arabs or Islamist. Who is currently attacking or blowing up things in the world? Is Canadians or South Americans or Australians? No, radical Islamists.
Are non-radical Muslim or Arabs going to suffer suspicion because of others’ actions? Yes, but do we have to become ostriches with regard to whom we place more scrutiny?
During WWII Japan and Germany were the terrorists. Did we scrutinize those who looked more Japanese or spoke with a German accents? Yes, sometimes unfairly. The innocent suffer for the sins of their compatriots.
That does not mean we shouldn’t be more careful with certain groups and more suspicious when they have unusual histories.
Profiling works. The police dont say a guy just held up a bank, they say a white, black or latino guy.
"Non radical Muslims or Arabs" , what's that? Like the Non Radical Nazis in 1930's Germany? Read the idiot Koran, it's way beyond "radical" thus all Muslims are indeed "radical".
You have embraced on the right the same idiotic collectivism of the left, only you give yours the name "Islam".
Judge the individual, not the group. That will be your salvation. Otherwise you are not better than they are. TEA PARTY as been lambasted as a group, but individual tea partiers are diverse. The evil powers of the world would love nothing better than for groups to have enmity for each other rather than viewing each other as individuals.

I never thought there would come a day when I considered Clinton gracious, but every time Obama speaks I realize what a nacissitic demogauge he is.
This was a moment to honor a past President, like him or hate him. As in the unveiling of President Bush’s portrait in the White House, Obama couldn’t refrain from politicking. He is a disgrace to his office.
All others including Carter managed to find positive points about Bush to highlight…not Obama.
His self-serving character sickens me, and makes me sorrowful for America; he has no dignity.

Quit sissifying football. This is a brutal sport; it has always been a brutal sport.
The players know the brutality going in.
While it may have been excessive in spring practice, the players are trying to prove to the coaches their worth.
My son was an all-star linebacker in high school; all city in Los Angeles.
Because he hit so hard with his shoulder while tackling “boys” 50 pounds heavier than hisself, he messed up his shoulder and was not able to go on to college, where he probably would have had a scholarship and possibly a pro career.
Not once did my son complain about the injury, nor did I complain about him playing too hard.
He is now a firefighter…and a damn good one.
If people are worried about hard hits. play baseball…or worse, soccer.

Liveral commentators are always a-holes and condecending to conservative guests.
No one calls them on it; usually they are heralded as brilliant.
Nice to see the tables turned. Don’t know how this guy still has a show. Let him go back to judging amatuer talent contests.

Quick history for dummies and liberals:
Noah Webster was an archetict and signer of the Declaration and Bill of Rights.
Noah Webster is the originator of the famous Webster’s Dictionary. In 1804 the Webster’s Dictionary defines “religion” as “any Christian denomination”.
Therefore, when the first amendment states Congress shall not favor one religion over another, it meant one Christian denomination over another…i.e. Baptist over Catholics; Presbyterian over Methodist.
Any other “religion” not being Christian was defined as a cult.
Therefore any non-Christian religion was not orignally covered by the protection of the First Amendment.
If Scriptures are on guns fine. If the Army wants to remove future Scripture from guns…that’s fine. But to scratch off the existing verses; shame on the Army. Let whatever soldier wants the verses left, great…let those opposing trade with those who wish extra protection and guidance.

Let’s use the Obama logic (I know it’s an oxymoron)
The gun control bill’s debate was shameful because 90% of people wanted background checks, and a few Senators bloked the will of the majority.
A majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare…repeal it.
A majority of Americans don’t want illegals to get a pathway to citizenship…stop promoting it.
The reason we a a representative republic is because sometimes the majority can be wrong.
Correction: " we HAD a representative republic"...the FACT that the majority does NOT want Obamacare but we still got it, proves we NO LONGER have that system! That system is dead, yet they try to convince us it remains...

I’m a Christian and an American.
As a Christian I may believe in helping the poor.
As an American we have laws and expect people to abide by them. If the first act on American soil was to violate its sovereignty, there is a problem. The Bible said God establishes a countries borders and government…and people need to obey the laws of the nation’s they belong to (unless it conflicts with God’s laws, i.e. a government can’t tell me to worship another god).
With those who came here legally and later overstayed…there may be some sympathy.
For those who broke the law as their first act by “breaking in”, there should not be a special path. Go back, do it right next time.
April 18, 2013 at 8:13pm
Ok, let’s use Obama logic (yes, I know that’s an oxymoron).
“A majority of Americans overwhelmingly wanted gun contol legislation”
Gee,,,a majority don’t want Obamacare; can we repeal it?
A majority don’t want illegals to get a special path to stay here…ready to deport them Obama?
Oh, and it is not a vocal minority of gun owners who opposed this. Gun owners are a majority.

comparing Thatcher and Soros? Seriously!?
Let’s see Thatcher saved Britian from bankruptcy, re-established the country as one of the world leaders, and along with Reagan undermined the Soviet Union and the Eastern European block to the point now that millions have freedom they didn’t have 20 years ago.
Soros? Hang on let me think….still thinking…wait. Oh yeah, collapse the currency in Russia and several other smaller countries while profiting billions. Now actively involved in trying the same tactics in America with willing puppets.
