    Amen, Sister Caroline!

    That attitude that the Danish ambassador states (holding Israel’s neighbors to a different standard because their are “inferior”), I have felt for the last 3 decades the Left (Democrats in particular) espouses the same attitude towards American ethnic minorities while pretending to be champions of American ethnics minorities. As a member of an American ethnic minority, I have always felt insulted by that attitude.

    Latinos and Asians are more conservative than Whites, on average, yet they voted for Obama in droves. My hypothesis of why is that too many have bought into the idea that the GOP hates them, not that they agree with the principles of the Democrat Party.

    Guber says the issues were thoroughly debated, but debated by and in front of whom? The Progressives are constantly playing word games so one cannot assume that their words mean how the common reasonable person would interpret them. Remember Bill Clinton’s “It depends on what the meaning of “is” is”? I believe this is why Leftists get so bent out of shape over words, construing the most casual and innocent sentence as having some sort of vile sexist or racist meaning where no reasonable person would agree. Since they bend the language so much, they instinctively bend the language when listening to what anyone else has to say. They assume that everyone else is playing word games as they do. In addition, they simply misrepresent what someone has to say in order to apply Alinsky tactics to vilify their enemies.

    I no longer bother listening to what Progessives have to say because I can’t trust that meaning of what they say is consistent with the common reasonable interpretation.

    What utter b***s*** on the part of the Beloit police. I appreciate the work that the police do, but that doesn’t mean there no police who are utopian statists who believe the people should surrender their liberty to the state so “the state can keep them safe”.

    If you want to cut violence, not just violence using guns, teach your children basic morality and respect for their fellow beings continuously starting at birth.

    I am not holding my breath that this new Republican majority will do anything to reverse the continuing centralization of power in DC or contribute significantly towards getting our fiscal house in order or secure our sovereignty. I predict that, at best, they will slow down the increased consolidation of power, our bankruptcy, or surrender of our national sovereignty.

    A major reason is the American public has generally been conditioned to think all these things are ok. Few Americans understand the need for state sovereignty and national sovereignty and even personal sovereignty.

    An extremely lightly reported fact is that the police sergeant in charge and present at that crime scene is Kizzy Adoni, a Black woman.

    I think what needs to come of this is better training for police officers in subduing suspects. There are techniques that are no problem against the young and healthy can be fatal to the very unhealthy. (Obviously.) The forensic report even said that Mr. Garner’s poor health was a factor in his death. Training needs to take these other factors into account in deciding which techniques to use. More and better training is needed.

    A good tree yields good fruit. A bad tree yields bad fruit. By their fruits you shall know them.

    I say that is a very good cartoon. It illustrates very much the situation Obama has put the American people in. I don’t believe the cartoon is racist at all. It tells the truth more clearly and more completely and more effectively than any article or news interview I have seen.

    I say all these accusations of racism is just a tool for shutting down debate. I came to that realization back in 2009 when Jimmy Carter accused Obama critics of only being against Obama’s policies because Obama is Black – he had no defense for the policies themselves.

    I gave Bill Cosby the benefit of the doubt when these stories were first coming out. But there is a definite pattern. When there is a clear pattern, those telling the stories are either lying and colluding together (sometimes by copycat, not necessary by getting together to agree) in some way, or they are telling the truth. In my mind, it seems the latter is most likely.

    It is no big secret that the Obamas and the Clintons don’t have respect for each other. The Clintons must be really steaming because supposedly they had a deal where Obama was supposed to help Hillary get elected. But you know the way Leftists twist words to mean whatever they want them to mean, especially the Clintons and Obamas.

    The Left would rather have this couple defenseless. There is no way the police would have been able to help the innocent in this situation except to clean up the mess after the innocent have been murdered.

    I am sure the Dem senators would like to help Mary Landrieu in her attempt to listen to her constituents for a change and pander for their votes, but the Dem senators left need to bow to their Leftist puppet masters. In addition, the Dem senators already lost their majority so why risk alienating their Leftist constituents or puppet masters by helping Mary throw a Hail Mary pass with the Keystone XL vote?

    Those actually look appetizing.

    Many people say millennials don’t have money to spend. But a counterexample is the 5+% rate they saved shortly after the Great Recession started. In addition, I say it is amazing how a person can save when they really try, no matter how little they earn. I know people in China that earn extremely little money, even by China’s standards, yet they manage to save money. I was always amazed by that.

    My brother-in-law saved a fair amount of money from his modest stipend as a grad student. It can be done when a person is willing to make the hard choices and put up with a less comfortable lifestyle.

    An organization called “THE TEA Party” has started one.

    We still have some degree of liberty in this country. Life would be a bit dull if only what we need were available. I have been to Mao era China when everything you didn’t “need”, such as having a dog, was frowned upon. Man, was that a dull place and dull looking place, aside from it being a quaint non-Western place. People looked like they were bored too. It is a totally different world today. Freedom and free market capitalism are the spices of life.

    I haven’t been in an armed self defense situation, but I have been in an empty handed self defense situation. Even though I had 15 years of Asian empty handed martial arts experience, it is far different experience in an unfriendly non-sporting situation. I defeated my attacker but despite my years of experience, I couldn’t fully control my fight/flight reaction. My heart was pumping big time. Even after the fight was over, my heart and breathing was still in hyperdrive for many minutes even though the fight only lasted about 15 seconds. I can imagine trying to control a handgun really precisely would be really difficult in such a situation. It is way different from shooting at the range. That is why we train. Still, I doubt all the training in the world can COMPLETELY prepare one for combat. Andrew Cuomo screams “you don’t need 7 shots to kill a deer”, completely ignoring the fact that when hunting deer you usually get the first shot with the deer unaware and still and the deer isn’t rushing you or trying to shoot you – completely different from a self defense situation. With my heart racing like it was in a self defense situation, I think a hi-cap 9mm would be better suited than a 6-shot .44 mag even at very close ranges. And I trained for empty hand combat. Think of how a person would react who had never been hit before. That person would really be shaking. BTW, I live in the People’s Rep of CA. I am not sure a 10-shot 9mm is better than a 6-shot 44 mag

    The talking heads do understand it. It is just that they are dishonest and without honor. The mainstream media have become the ministry of propaganda for the Utopian statists (a.k.a. big government Leftists).

    BTW, I don’t call those L people “liberals” because they are NOT at all liberal. They pretend to be tolerant but they are the most intolerant people I have met. If you don’t agree with them, you are a “flat Earther” and less intelligent.

    Just what are these challenges that “minorities have to deal with everyday”? I am a member of an ethnic minority and that would be obvious if you met me in person. I am 52, born and raised in the US. Frankly, I have no idea what Mr. Cook is talking about. I might encounter someone that annoys me by making an ethnic based assumption every few YEARS, but it is just a little annoying. No big deal and certainly not a CHALLENGE. What annoys me more than far more is Leftists assuming that I have a hard time coping with life than the average person. In fact, I probably have a much easier time coping with life than the average person. My ability to cope has nothing to do with ethnicity. My ability to cope stems from my belief, and results confirm my belief, in the traditional American work ethic, that we Americans are not stuck in the circumstances that we were born in when we try hard enough, my faith in God, and my belief that we are all God’s children – including me. As a child of God, we have attributes of deity. What can’t God overcome?

    Socioeconomically, I grew up in, probably, the bottom 25%. I am now in the top 10%. If I listened to Leftists telling me I have things so hard, I might have become discouraged (well, not really, I am stubborn and don’t listen to naysayers, but others not as stubborn as me would become discouraged) and not have put forth the effort to succeed. However, my oldest sister listened to those voices and stayed down. Leftists are evil.
