I never understood this tax return business in the first place. To begin with, what does the candidate’s income have to do with how he/she will govern? Secondly, whatever the wild speculation in the media about where Trump’s money comes from, etc. I’m certain that his accountants are not going to play any games with his return. The reason why: they know that, for someone at his income level, the return is going to be carefully scrutinized by the IRS. If he doesn’t pay any taxes, as he claims, there’s a legitimate reason why. My taxable income is, as you can imagine, light years lower than his and if I screw up one line in my return, I hear about it from the taxing authorities.

“Perfomance” is the operative word in these debates: that’s why I never watch them. They are media-created events given faux-importance and which have one primary purpose: to get ratings. Anyone who uses debate performance as an accurate gauge of how a candidate will govern needs his head examined. Debates test one quality in a candidate: the ability to debate. The best debater doesn’t always make the best President. During the 1950′s, Eisenhower was President. This guy ran the entire European Theater of operations during WWII, holding together a very fragile coalition of our allies in order to be able to do so. He was an excellent two-term President. He was also a terrible public speaker and, in today’s world, probably would have lost every debate.We’ve had a very smooth-talking guy in the White House for the past 8 years. How did that work out?
In North Carolina, as long as they were inside the premises while she was shooting, she was justified. Shooting out the open door at the perp who had already left would NOT have been justified. The threat from this guy was over at that point. If he had turned around and started shooting at her, it might have been different.
Maybe they were shooting at her after they left who does.

That may have been true prior to 1962. I’ve lived here for the past 6 years and if there’s a racial “problem,” I haven’t seen it. I have black friends here and race has never been an issue. The races in this city get along better than anything I saw when I lived in New York. Of course, wherever BLM goes, outside agitators are present and a racial problem is conjured up. Don’t be confused: I highly doubt that many local black people are participating in this.
"I highly doubt that many local black people are participating in this."
Then they should be speaking out loudly about this. As someone watching from Arizona, the appearance of what is going on in Charlotte, NC is all Blacks are Thugs.

The other protestors want to fight this guy because he’s rational and the rest of them are just a bunch of anti-social anarchist thugs. When is BLM going to be classified as a terrorist organization?
Maybe because the blackbloc element within this protest was a minority.

I live in Charlotte. According to news reports, most these “protesters” don’t live in Charlotte. Just the usual bunch of thug, outside agitators.

Just goes to show: deep thinking is not a requirement for playing pro football.

Not surprising. Raising children requires hard work, attention and sacrifice, to an extent (I know from personal experience). It’s a hard job, if done correctly. You feed a pet, take them out for walks and pet them on the head, they love you forever. How hard is that?

If this guy had been dropped to the ground and placed in handcuffs immediately, the issue about his walking back to his car might never have come up. Strange situation.

Trying to get logic from morons is like trying to get blood from a stone. Just goes to show: you don’t need a PhD to become a pro football player.

Agreed. I’m a Carolina Panthers fan. We have a home game with the 49ers this Sunday. You won’t see any of our guys sitting during the National Anthem. There are legit ways to protest and start a conversation. Disrespecting the National Anthem of your country isn’t one of them.

I’m a North Carolina resident. I could care less what these bozos do. This country has lost it’s mind.

Of course. Have you ever seen any gay in the public eye, especially those making unconscionable amounts of money, fail to keep reminding the world that he/she is gay, as if anybody cares? They’re the only group on the planet that constantly talks about their sexual orientation. Time to grow up.

What liberties aren’t being protected? The gay lifestyle has now become generally accepted (unfortunately) and, in most instances, legally protected. As far as wage discrimination goes, these crocodile tears are being shed by someone with a net worth of 2 million dollars. We all should be so discriminated against.

Why wait until the election? Now wouldn’t be soon enough for me.

Here’s what i would do about the illegals who are already here: nothing. They crossed our borders illegally and should have considered the consequences, i.e. the risk of getting caught. Since they’ve been lucky enough to stay “in the shadows” for many years, they’ve avoided the consequences of their criminal behavior. Let them stay in the legal limbo they themselves created. Under no circumstances should they be given any kind of legal status.
Therefore you will not vote and let Hillary get elected who will allow swarms of illegals come here with 0 vetting. There is no black and white fool. Only shades of grey.

Black lives matter only when whites are doing the killing.

Black Students United? Say it Loud? Brothers4Brothers? Give me a break. The first thing these black students do when they get to college is to self-segregate by forming all-black organizations to “empower men of color on campus,” whatever that means. After four years of this brainwashing, when they get out into the real world, they then wonder why it’s so difficult to get along with other people in this society. When I went to college, the purpose of being there wasn’t “empowerment” but to study and make something of yourself. How times have changed.

Reminds me of the old saying: if you’re standing in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. This idiot is digging a hole for himself he’ll never get out of.
Keep it simple – team management and the NFL head flap jaw have not taken action. Last year we only watched a few season games – the playoff and the Super Bowl.
This season we will be watching NONE = ZERO = 0 If you watch NFL games – you support this BS
I think Kaepernick has an agenda that has nothing to do with oppression or the flag. Has it occurred to anyone that he may be doing this to lay the foundation for a lawsuit against the NFL and/or the 49ers? It's no secret that Kaepernick hasn't performed well as a quarterback for the last couple of years and that no team was interested in picking him up because despite Kaepernick's dismal showing, he was demanding far more money than any team thought he was worth. He is probably going to be cut by the 49ers because he's declined as a player and now he'll be able to allege that racism and refusal to stand for the flag was the reason, rather than thel reason--he's a lousy quarterback.
Empty stadium anyone? The 49er brand might suffer from this fool. Although sadly, he has the right to be a fool
