    So much for being a feminist, Sally. All that you think and all that you are, would be condemned under such a system of law.

    Should we also investigate liberal protesters who burn the American flag because of their alternative context for another historical flag? Perhaps that flag should be banned, too?

    We need a running list of these locations so we know where not to go. And if I were giving advice to ANY small businessman or woman in this country, you might want to proactively warn your employees about appropriate behavior in this regard. If you support law enforcement, tell them that this sort of thing will not be tolerated and grounds for on the spot termination. That if they don’t want to serve law enforcement, they can quit and open their own business and do that.

    Again, we need that list. Too many idiots doing this to not know that this sentiment is rampant. I, for one, do not want to support any establishment that would hire such people. There is a thin blue line between civilization and anarchy. I’m a civilization supporter and will act accordingly.

    Douche nugget needs to not think about the public backlash but about the idea that a grief stricken mother can certainly want to intensely blame the person or people responsible for the death of her child.

    This isn’t about her being triggered, this is about her being emotionally crushed….and then proven that she was lied to. Repeatedly, by the powers that be.

    Beat her to death for her grief? Why? Because she BLAMED Hillary and the Obama administration?

    Who cares about apologies. The inability to have compassion as well as any minute ability to put himself in her shoes is revealing enough. He can disagree with her politics as much as he wants to. Going to the land of advocating death on someone because he disagrees with her politics is frankly, inexcusable.

    I’m a mother. I find her over the top myself. Hard to listen to. But not for one second do I not grok the passion that she has for the subject matter. There is no rationalizing away that level of grief. And there is certainly a degree of anger that one would have if politicians lied to my face over the facts as to how something went down, as well as the offer of help that was given, yet no real help was actually produced.

    The administration did not have this woman’s back.

    No, because this doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Police have been murdered in record numbers in the past few weeks. If you don’t get that cops are worried more than normal about being murdered in this current societal climate, you’re not thinking about this hard enough.

    Be the guy with the badge who goes to work every day, NOW with increased threats against all departments across this entire country. Some guy comes up to you aggressively, shiining a light in your eyes, and obviously trying to provoke. You have no idea what he’s going to do next, only that you’re not going to die in the middle of it. What would you yourself do? You’re alone, in your car, no time for backup if crap goes down. You wait, you could be dead. So what would you do?

    You’d pull your firearm. Unless you want to risk being ANOTHER cop getting dead for just sitting in his car.

    The guy with the camera is doing nothing except trying to provoke an on camera incident with police. Police, who have been assassinated in cold blood in record numbers in the past couple of weeks. Assassinated. Murdered only for wearing the uniform. So only a completely immoral and stupid person would do what that guy did.

    Here’s a clue to the BLM folks doing this stuff: There are human beings behind those badges. They are not required to risk dying for your protesting behavior. And yes, that is what THIS incident is all about. It’s a protester trying to get good video by intimidating law enforcement.

    It’s wrong. It’s immoral. It’s stupid. And it’s dangerous. I’ve rapidly gotten to the point where whatever credibility that any of you originally had, is gone for me. Your moral high ground has almost vanished.

    Cruz was funny, and Trump comes off as a grumpy jackass.

    A man that didn’t have a paying job until he was over 40 has the plan to make it work for all of us? LOL I’m really tired with the liberal attitude “NEW socialism, we swear that it’s going to work THIS time!.”

    It. doesn’t. work. You cannot take a system that may work with cooperation from all parties with a tiny population and scale it out to 325 million people. With half of the people in this country not working at all (doesn’t matter why), the other half will have to carry it. It’s not about some stupid idea that “rich people’ are going to fund it. There are about 800 billionaires in this country. They have nowhere near the amount of assets required to make a pure safety net for everyone.

    So it means that you and me would have to write checks. BIG checks to the IRS. Massive. checks. His education idea would cost almost 800 billion PER YEAR, every year. In order to understand just how big that number is, is twofold: It’s the equivalent of 10 years of the Iraq War. It’s the equivalent of the 2009 stimulus package.

    Our current federal budget is roughly 3.9 trillion. Bernie’s stated ideas would cost around 1.7 trillion EXTRA per year. So you think that money would only come from the 1% then I have a bridge to sell you.

    Bernie Sanders, the candidate of the math challenged masses who don’t know world history.

    Who isn’t a tool for their employer? LOL Everyone that works for someone else is a tool. That’s most of us out here. They’re not talking to you because you ARE being marginalized. And 10 bucks it’s because of your attitude.

    You see, it doesn’t matter who you are, what you do for a living or who your boss is: When your attitude is flagrantly ‘I know more than you. I know how to do my job AND your job’ and then you direct it towards your bosses, that’s pretty much a formula for ‘yer fired’.

    The business wants to go in a new direction. This would be because they’re failing and they’re trying to turn the ship. If it fails, no one has a job. That would be why you’re expendable. Be a team player and you’ll have a job. Be a pouty special snowflake, then you might as well just update your resume. For someone with a PhD that knows everything, you should already know this.

    I was approximately 38 weeks pregnant with my second child when I had to take BART in the SF Bay Area to get to a class in San Francisco. Parking was non existent in that area, so public transportation was my only real choice. I stood for about 40 minutes, hanging onto a pole. Hot, hurting, very little room to move. Hard to breathe. Not one person looked my way.

    It made me sad, not angry. I was raised to be polite to others. I pictured my younger self, getting up for someone like me. For the pregnant lady, the elderly person, the woman with the small child. I watched all of the young 20 somethings ignore me, and thought about how much is wrong in this society.

    I still open doors for others, whether they need it or not. I will still get up and let someone more infirm take my place. And I still think that there are a whole lot of people on this planet that weren’t raised correctly.

    And especially in the land of the liberal hipster…don’t tell me that you ‘care’ about others when you literally ignore the person who is standing right in front of you. So much intellectual untrue blather. A small gesture that takes little effort to accomplish, that means so much to the person who needs help.

    Lots of Bush ragging. He’s not my candidate, but he’s probably is the guy in the family that ‘should’ have been POTUS after his dad.

    As to looking like a nerd in glasses, well of course! We’re still in middle school and glasses matter, damn it. Makes him a ‘sissy’. At least that is what I would have thought in my 20s. He’s got no oomph, no turbo. He’s not spunky. He’s steady and sure, a bookworm. . The guy that works hard that doesn’t deliver the pithy one liner. Goes to work, pays his bills, loves his family. Ten bucks he has a pocket protector in his dresser. 100 bucks he hasn’t cheated on his wife. Responsibility is boring, bring on the heat!

    You know who he really is? The guy you SHOULD have dated instead of the bad boy on the Harley. Trump is the bad boy. Obama, the bad boy. Even Hillary is the bad boy. And none of them should be POTUS or someone that you should date. Not unless you want your heart broken.

    I would have voted for him for that alone. Unfortunately, he supports some policies that I disagree with. But everything that I mentioned would be reasons to vote FOR him, not against him. Bad boys are paper tigers. Scratch the surface and you see just another self serving person who will sell out the American people.

    Vote for glitter, vote for flash. But celebrity politics will not deliver what this country needs. We’ve just endured the guy in love with the spotlight for 8 years, with painful results. Get ready, we’re going to do it again.

    I have to tell you, thinking back lo those many years ago when I was a teenager, that I would have had something to say if some stranger tried to tell me that I couldn’t speak, think, or pray.

    It’s not in a building.
    It’s not in a classroom.
    It’s not during class time.
    It’s not during an extracurricular activity, that had already ended.

    I’m in public, and you’re going to tell me not to pray? Bahahahaaa! In the words of a sitcom from back in the day, “kiss my grits”. If I’m talking to a human or I’m looking at the sky, as long as I’m not yelling fire in a crowded theater or inciting a riot, my freedom of speech is intact. Bonus irony points that what he was saying was loving.

    Seriously atheists, this is why I can’t stand your posturing and have stopped listening to you.

    My stepfather was rear ended at a stop light. Very low speed, just a bumper bender. But the next day, felt some neck pain, thought that he had whiplash and should be seen. Did a CT, and discovered a tumor on his brain stem. They were able to treat him with radiation. Had NO symptoms. Given the location, once that occurred, it would have been very bad. That was over 20 years ago. He’s elderly now with other issues, but he’s still going strong.

  • [1] October 1, 2015 at 9:14am

    Cecile, is that you? LOL

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:44pm

    No.

    Here’s a simple question: Do you actually believe in political stereotypes?

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:35pm

    Normally one would say ‘there are no stupid questions’.

    Sorry, this one is. Medical research is ‘science’.

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:31pm

    12/12 But then again, I’m a conservative science major. LOL Easy test. Let’s see a hard one.

  • [8] September 12, 2015 at 11:25pm

    As a female, this should have been dealt with in ‘old school’ style. If a boy steals a kiss and she welcomes it, no harm, no foul. If a boy steals a kiss and she doesn’t like it, she hauls off and smacks him across the chops. His cheeks flames, she glares, and everyone knows where the line is. Case closed.

    When they purchase something, anything, there is no way in hell to know what is in it. They also have no way of knowing how they’re going to react to it.

    I understand that you think that you’re the voice of reason, but as someone that worked holidays in the ICU, my past record of people stroking from cocaine that they tried on a single night during a single shift, is three. The last one was a gray haired grandma. The toughest one was a single guy in his 20s. Incredibly fit. They said that he was the single dad of a couple of kids. Had the body of a boxer, so he wasn’t a user. I spent that three day weekend with a neurologist as we went through the process to prove that he was brain dead and the ventilator was ultimately turned off.

    This isn’t something that i can intellectualize well, I just have seen too many dead bodies, impersonating live people in my time. The 16 year old girl in this article stroked. Any future that she had in front of her has been permanently derailed. Live over before she even left high school.

    You want truth? Brain damage. Death. Permanent impairment. Addiction. Rehab. Grieving families.Crime. Orphaned kids. I’m all in when it comes to REAL drug ‘education’. Let’s all take a field trip to the local trauma center in the inner city on the first weekend of the month and see some truth.

    Nothing personal. But you’ve only begun to look at the subject.
