    Glenn (or is it Alex), get over it….the local/state police are NOT your problem. You literally sound like a paranoid little kid looking for monsters under his/her bed.
    And BTW, after looking at Ferguson and Baltimore, if these protestors come to your/my town and this “war zone” you speak of becomes reality, I want my local LEOs to be able to hold their own and them some…..I can protect myself pretty well but help is always a good thing.
    Also, I, like most regular citizens, don’t have their own personal security detail like you do.

    THIS is why you should want your police dept to be well armed, complete with armored vehicles (no, no one is advocating they have tanks, grenades and the like). Granted, what occurs in this video rarely happens but if you think it can’t, you win the award for most ignorant, stupid or naive human on the planet.
    When you make it where local LEOs cannot properly arm themselves to match today’s ever increasing violence, you’ve done nothing different than advocate for what equals gun control for civilians. In other words, you’ll be forcing them to take knives to a gunfight which in turn allows the threat to you and your fellow citizens to remain.

    If this nonsense were to actually take place, it should mean that you, at the same time, are not to be allowed to carry ANYTHING in ANY manner for self defense.
    Just so there’s no confusion when a knee jerks, I’m 100% AGAINST both. Just mirroring one stupid with another stupid that’s obvious enough for all to understand.

    I need to add one thing to this sentence: when it comes to local forces obtaining these things from places other than the feds, if they can be obtained at all, Congress still can have the say so by passing legislation on the matter.

    I left out your local govt. It is THEY who are responsible for obtaining these things or things similar to them if they feel the need to. Congress has the authority to give the thumbs up or down on them getting the military’s left overs or what the military can buy new.

    Maybe she (and anyone else) should watch where the heck they’re walking. After all, NY (or any other state, city or town) didn’t force you to walk a certain route, in a certain way or with high heeled shoes on to cause you to be clumsy and fall on your butt.
    And yeah, suing for 5 million when her criminal pops owes about 4.5 million in back taxes is mighty coincidental.

    The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    First of all, when it comes to obtaining these things from the feds, Congress has the say so, not this f’ing dictator in the WH. Second, when it comes to local forces obtaining these things from places other than the feds, if they can be obtained at all, Congress still can have the say so by passing legislation on the matter.
    Third, all you idiots worried about the militarization of police forces seem to be ignoring the fact that the threats can be and at times ARE much bigger and can have more powerful weapons! Do you want your local law enforcement overpowered by some drug cartel?! I sure as hell don’t!

    All that said, there’s two last points: 1) Contrary to what most of you have been led to believe, the police officers are NOT your enemy and 2) when your police can’t do their duty to protect you, in whatever way they can or should, you just might wish they could get their hands on some of this stuff.
    P.S. I’m all for defending myself but I would always appreciate the help from the police if, God forbid, that day comes.

    The guy is 99.99% right and if it irritates a liberal hack like Holder, I’m good with it.

    I read this and all I could do is put my face in my hands and shake my head. Pass a bill to allow Congress to exercise not only a constitutional authority it already has but what the Constitution actually compels it to do? WTH!? This is just wrong!

    BTW, I hope all you MORONS in Tennessee who put this absolute idiot, Corker, into office are happy. He’s turning yet another piece of the Constitution on its head and continuing to destroy Congress’ authority.

  • [2] May 4, 2015 at 9:39am

    Exactly! And buy them with his pay that is unequal to a LARGE number of Americans.

    I try hard to not let stupid people get to me. I try hard to watch my mouth commenting on said stupidity. But in this case I just can’t take it. I just have to say…..this woman, if she is a woman, is a stupid, pathetic, disgraceful, anti-police, anti-justice, 100% F’ing political hack.

    The citizens of Maryland ought to be EMBARRASSED AND PISSED OFF that they’ve elected such trash.

    Advice to the good, intelligent LEOs in Baltimore and MD in general: FIND ANOTHER CITY AND STATE TO WORK IN BEFORE SHE RUINS YOUR CAREER IN THE FUTURE TOO.

    Wow! The teacher has an opinion about our imperial president. That sounds normal to me (whether you or I agree or disagree with her opinion).

    That said, the classroom’s not the place for opinions unless the subject being taught requires or allows it.
    Either way, this is a clear indication, at least to me anyway, that this teacher’s opinion will NOT be allowed unless it matches those who complained as well as those who FORCED this teacher into retirement.

    Parents, teach your kids to respect the fact that everyone has an opinion and is free to express it.

    School administrators, have the doctor fix your knee injury where it hit the desk when it jerked and then simply make sure the teacher understands when & where and to whom opinions should and should not be expressed. IMO, she offered to the wrong people at the wrong time.

    Only about a third knew that “the government of the United States should be a democracy” is a political belief shared by most people in the U.S.

    How does a child learn the REAL history of this nation, in a political sense or not, when this is NOT emphatically taught as FALSE?

  • April 20, 2015 at 1:30pm

    Yes it is.
    I, in no way, mean to imply that the Old Testament is now irrelevant or not to be considered in our lives. IT IS RELEVANT AND IS TO BE VERY MUCH A PART OF OUR LIVES!
    To fabricate these “beliefs” that aren’t really biblical in some sort of reverence to God won’t cut it when when Jesus returns. The choice, due to beliefs, not to display photos of women will NOT win you your salvation….that applies no matter what denomination, faith or religion you claim to be part of. There is but ONE thing that wins one their soul’s salvation….John 3:16
    It’s like some faiths think simply doing good by your fellow man alone will get them to Heaven. While we are clearly told to do this, it alone will NOT get anyone to Heaven.

  • April 20, 2015 at 1:16pm

    fortherecord, this said nothing of HOW the photos were displayed or what the photos contained. It just said simply displaying photos featuring women were immodest. THAT, whether anyone likes it or not, is ridiculous in a biblical context. Sure, there ARE scenarios where displaying photo of a woman would be immodest and wrong but that’s not my beef here. My issue with this is that saying the simple display a photo of a woman, regardless of the actual content of the photo, is automatically immodest. That is just not correct.

    When it comes right down to it, I understand many Jews, even though they are God’s chosen people, don’t believe Jesus to be the ONE AND ONLY true Messiah and that NO ONE comes to the Father but through Him. To believe such a thing as THIS is FALSE and they had best wake up to that…and soon. My point here is, this issue with displaying photos of women is based upon religion and Jesus can or does care little about or can or does just downright hate religion.

    To your first point, it’s because the gay left is forcing those of us who disagree with this ALTERNATIVE lifestyle to accept their crap. Since they can’t get people to buy into it and accept it on its merits, they turn to govt to force it upon us. Then govt NOT being moored to the Constitution, they’re ever so willing to help out. Take away the force of govt on this and things will at least be MUCH better if not cured. The sane person feels no desire to oppress these people. Just don’t force me or anyone else to do things like bake a cake to support their lifestyle. If you’re gay and want a cake, fine, I’ll sell you a cake. If my religious freedom was respected the same way they demand we respect them and their alternative lifestyle, they’d come in and tell me they want a wedding cake, leave out the part about what it’s for, tell me they’ll decorate it themselves, pay me, smile and walk out the door with a cake. Even that’s not a perfect cure for this but at least that way they’re trying to respect my religious beliefs.

    To your second point, we are NOT animals. Simple as that.

  • [-2] April 20, 2015 at 11:06am

    You pretty much hit the nail on the head. Take away what it is many of these fights occur over and they’ll likely die out. Most times these fights occur because the parties involved think they have or will miss out on some form of largesse from the govt. The things that most of these fights occur over are unconstitutional anyway….like the income tax or this phony idea that there is some kind of a “right” to be married.

    P.S. Yes, I’m aware of the 16th amdt but this amdt is not really how the Constitution intended taxation to work….at least not permanently.

    THAT is the very root of our problem. He has His laws and we have our laws but the further apart they get, the bigger the problems. Even if you choose not to believe in or follow God, the result of our laws closely aligning with His makes your life easier.

  • [-3] April 20, 2015 at 10:45am

    So, you’re sick of losing to this debate so what the hell, if I can’t beat the left I’ll just join them. You’re willing to abandon what you may think is right just so you can win an election? THAT is what you just said even if you don’t know it.
    As far as I’m concerned, it will be a cold day in hell before that happens. I’m’ sticking to what I believe is right! I DO NOT believe abortion is right and should be OUTLAWED altogether…like murder, which is the same as abortion. While I do NOT think gay marriage is right, if it’s gonna happen, I want to happen COMPLETELY independent of the federal govt. I want it left to each person whether to have any participation in it in any way. If I don’t want to bake a cake for someone, that someone will go elsewhere….end of story.

    I just KNOW that the federal govt has NO constitutional authority whatsoever to be involved in it.

  • [-2] April 20, 2015 at 10:29am

    Nooooooo, we don’t need no stinkin’ morals.

  • April 20, 2015 at 10:23am

    I agree that this is a gotcha question and also agree with the last sentence. However, so long as the federal govt insists on sticking its nose where it does not belong, into the subject of gay marriage, or any marriage for that matter, it DAMN SURE IS a relevant matter for a presidential candidate and the voters. Any good GOP candidate can and should have and be able to speak of their view on social issues and all the other things as well. This is what’s called being able to walk and chew gum at the same time. Thing is, can the voter understand it? Usually, it’s no.
    His comment that there is no constitutional right for gay marriage is right on the money! He just should’ve added that marriage as a whole is not a right. Whether being gay or not is a choice is the irrelevant part.

    It’s ONLY the average voter’s general ignorance of the Constitution, the Judeo-Christian principles that it’s based upon and the current lack of the same morals and virtuous principles that makes this such a contentious issue. If you or anyone else has issues with the downward direction of this country, stop looking to a president or some other individual to rectify it and look in the mirror and your heart…before you vote.
    AND NO, THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT FOR RUBIO FOR PRESIDENT.
