    Coming to a statist pig tyranny near you soon. I might have killed someone today when I drove my car to the store BUT I DIDN”T – Neither did this guy.

    Well he did claim this was 9 out of 10 people interviewed. Regardless most of us can recognize the difference between journalism and humorous entertainment. On the other hand Bernie and the free-stuff delusion is pretty popular with this age group. So_ free stuff is quite to rage.

    If that beast ever tried to pick me up in a bar I would swear on a stack of bibles that I was gay from birth. Wholly cow! And I do me COW.

    Classic busybody approach. Why not knock on the neighbors door and actually meet the people?

    Ah keyboard warriors. So well intentioned.
    Unless you live on another planet this approach simply doesn’t work. Bottom line is the bureaucracy is the 4th branch of government and it has more power than any local law enforcement. They will take your kids, by force, and use a compliant judge to back them up. Ask the Pelletier family from CT just how far you get being defiant. Unless you have been living in a cave you might realize your so called “rights” no longer exist. Years of electing anti-constitutionalist statists have negated your precious constitution. Trump will be all to happy to finish burying it for ya.

    The problem with traffic stops is you just never know when you have inadvertently pulled over a criminal. Every stop is a potential disaster. I hope the officer heals quickly.
    This criminal gets his picture taken and still resists then flees. Criminals are criminals because they are stupid. You can’t count on them making a rational choice. With all of the crap going on these days there is no way I would sign up to be cop.

    Note to self: Resist the knee jerk reaction urge to try stopping a moving car by grabbing on to it.
    I’ll bet the officer never tries that move again. A painful lesson. For those thinking that shooting at the car is appropriate- Shooting someone for a traffic violation likely wouldn’t go over to well. Aurora might want to review their procedures and training for simple traffic stops. Something along the lines of mini-spike-strips positioned in front of the rear wheels? A hitch on the rear bumper? Wait for a second car to block the guy in? One on one police work is a thing of the past. We need four times the cops and three times the equipment now just to pull someone over for a minor traffic violation. It can only get worse from here.

    Bingo! A civics exam and a history exam.
    IQ has little to do with it. There are a multitude of “intellectual” marxists.

    Agreed but it isn’t just black people. More than half the country is completely dependent on the federal government for their existence. I’m not just talking about unemployed. The government is the largest employer in the country and the number of federal or state employees is over the top. I believe this is one of the reasons trump is popular. The idea of ANYone pruning down the federal leviathan even slightly terrifies SS recipients, food stamp users, contractors selling labor on gov contracts, government sector unions and the list is endless. So to them bigger government, even if it is bigger trump government seem much safer than someone talking about reducing any aspect of the machine. Romney once said 47% wouldn’t vote for him because they are dependent so they will never support responsible spending. I think he missed the estimate by a mile. I’m willing to bet it is over 75%. Maybe higher. For the past 100 years Americans have slowly been selling their souls to the government god. Frankly I doubt we will ever wake up and turn around. It is already too late.

    Wow. Considering he has already walked back much of his immigration stance this comment leaves me speechless.
    KELLY: So you abandoning the position on your website…
    TRUMP: … I’m changing it, and I’m softening the position because we have to have talented people in this country.

    Illegals crossing the border is only ONE myopic view of immigration. Displacing highly skilled worker for cheaper labor is another expensive aspect of it. Trump has already gone “corporate support” on that part. Also what about the number coming in legally using the visa program and simply staying?
    One thing you can count on. Whatever donald claims on immigration today, if he is true to his history, he will walk it back based on which ever way the wind blows. Same for just about any of his “stands”. When a person “stands” on shifting sand with no foundational principles there is no way to predict what they will ultimately do. Your projections on what you hope donald will do may work out, or they may not.

    Whatever – people only hear what they want to hear.

    He will walk back whatever works in the moment. Is that 2nd amendment precious to you? How about the 1st, or 4th or any other right? ALL negotiable. Everything is negotiable. Especially if it is some as trivial as your personal rights or right to own property or something silly like that.. Ahahahaha. We’ll make the best deals. The biggest deals. They will be huge. (and you will get screwed)

    Hmm, plavelle, “always done in anger” seems to imply that is what you have witnessed. I am sorry if that was your experience because in my experience the dad cried as much as the kid whenever this was necessary. A “beating” might be done in anger but correction is done with great care. The goal isn’t retaliation the goal is correction.

    Not accurate. 1971 – Article 10: The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right keep to arms in their homes, for security and legitimate defense, with the exception of those prohibited by federal law and those reserved for the exclusive use of the Army, Navy, Air Force and National Guard. Federal law will determine the cases, conditions, requirements, and places in which the carrying of arms will be authorized to the inhabitants.

    MX citizens have a right to own firearms but carrying them in public is a different story. Carrying for the most part is prohibited especially in urban areas. The Mexican citizens however are far from unarmed. In fact there is a lot of great hunting down there and a rich gun culture. Very strict on the public area carry stuff however. Of course I can’t carry my firearms in many places in TN either so I’m not sure how much difference there really is. We have this great constitutional right but we are prohibited from exercising it in an increasing number of locations. For the most part in my state you can’t carry without a special government issued permit. How is that 2nd amendment working in your area? Not too well I suspect.

    These dirtbags sound like your average Roger Stone style trump supporters to me. They do the same thing. One negative comment about dear leader and they hunt you down and threaten constantly. Mexico is a great place to carry your 45 handy. Nearly as dangerous as a N.Y. subway.

    Dear Mr. Springsteen. Way to screw your diminishing fan base. Please don’t let the door hit you in the backside on the way out. Bub-bye.

  • April 3, 2016 at 10:14am

    Bingo. In particular don’t answer the question, “what would you do about…” for an issue that is outside the scope of the office you are running for. I suppose the first step in being able to do that is actually understanding the scope of the office. It wasn’t so much the answer that bothered me it was the fact that he answered to begin with.

  • April 3, 2016 at 9:31am

    Not obvious to me why you think there will be any difference between Hillary and Trump. After all – everything is just a bargaining chip for Trump and he has been on both sides of each issue so what principles will he stand on? One reason people against Trump are willing to tolerate Hillary is they hope she can be constrained by opposition from congress. Dunno if I buy into that assumption based on their history with Obama however I seriously doubt all those evils you spoke of won’t come to pass under a trump rule as easily. Before I die I would like to vote FOR something instead of just against something else. Lesser of two evils seems like a surrender without a fight.

  • April 3, 2016 at 9:14am

    You were on a roll up to the cold logic of punishment. Still your primary point is well founded. It was a stupid question intended to bait trump into saying something stupid. He didn’t disappoint. He would have been much better to answer that question the same way you did. “That question is to be answered by the congress and the courts, it is not for the president to decide.” Simple. The fact that he answered it at ALL was a warning sign for me. Clearly he has never confronted or even considered the issue. (like so many issues he is unfamiliar with) Worse he is ready to take a stand on something outside of the scope of the position he is applying for. Seems more like he is applying for the job of king rather than president. He seems to lack understanding (or respect) for the constitutional constraints on the executive office. We have had eight years of lack of respect and this pen & phone mentality. Looks like many are signing up for four more without considering the ramifications.

    In a purely logical train of thought obliviously if someone breaks the law you punish the law breaker. Hard to argue against that logic but I will. Hey we tried that logic with drug offenders. If a person possesses or uses illegal drugs we now punish the law breaker. Logical. Right? Except it doesn’t solve the problem, does it? Punishment is supposed to be a deterrent against continued offence but what do you do when the system of punishment doesn’t achieve the desired results? The problem is that in a civil society and some situations, following the simplistic logic path is ineffective. No one could fault trump’s off-the-cuff logic on the abortion question. What is obvious however is that he has never actually thought the issue out. This seems to be true on a growing number of serious issues facing America today. Trump has just never thought them out because they simply don’t apply to a person living in his world. That world is a very different world than you and I live in.

    I watched this and there it is right in your face – the primary motivation – “get things done”. This guy (in the video) doesn’t want LESS government or balanced government power he wants TRUMP government. More executive control and MORE federal government power. Same old , same old shucking and jiving bigger and bigger federal leviathan sucking up control and managing every aspect of our lives. As long as that government punishes his enemies. Temporary gains, if any gain at all. Free trade, open markets, individual liberty are all irrelevant. Bring on the Smoot Hawley trade controls. How did that work out for ya? Oh look. Signed into law by the last “great business man” acting as president. I hope someone reminds Donald that if he makes a series of bad decisions the country can just bail out by declaring bankruptcy.
    Look we all have the same complaints about Washington. The question is how to fix the problem. Making the problem worse by electing a so called “strong man” results in MAYBE a temporary gain for a few until the next “hero” rides in and assumes the vast power amassed for his own agenda. Obama has strengthen the executive branch until it is completely out of control. Trump is all too happy to assume those reigns and built even more strength for the office. We are on the path to a dictatorship not more liberty and freedom.

    Excellent comments. What I observe is the trump supporters are primarily made of up people who where never Constitutional Conservatives to begin with. You won’t sway them from their life long pursuit and dream. They can project on trump whatever they want him to be. He can’t be wrong because he is the embodiment of collectivism. This folks would have loved Teddy Roosevelt because “he got things done” and never noticed the real danger in his power grab. More government is good so long as the government is punishing their enemies. It is a sad time for true liberty and freedom when so many are will to forsake both for some deceptive short term perceived gain.
