    Amen, Tbart. I’ll hold my nose and vote with the guys willing to work within the republican framework because a vote for a rino like McConnell is better than no vote or a vote for a leftest community organizer. Vote for them and push to change the framework. I would love to see the two party ruling elite class destroyed but the odds of it happening are minimal. Third party stuff beyond a vote for county dog catcher is not productive. Really we need to blow up the corrupt washington system to realize honest change but there just isn’t enough momentum to get that done. 80% of the American voters are essentially clueless when it comes to understanding the real problem of elitist rulers. So sticking with the few conservatives in the republican machine is the best bet at this point in time. So I’m with you. Staying home is folly. Actually staying home is just giving up. Frankly I am not giving up. And neither should you. Support the most likely potentially conservative republicans you can and vote no matter how hard you have to hold your nose.

    There is my guy. Right there on the list. Lamar Alexander. I came out critical of KY-ians for foolishly “sticking with Mitch” because Mitch has the experience to “bring home the bacon for KY’ but here in the Volunteer state we are doing exactly the same thing. Voter ignorance? Not always. Some of the most politically savvy KY-ians I know turned away from Bevin because “I have to vote for what is best for KY”. Defeatist attitude.
    If we ever have any hope of cleaning out these lifetime ol’ relics it is a constitutional convention. First order of business term limits. Next is lobby restrictions. No more K street. Get them OUT. Washington needs a bath with scalding hot water. Flush the scum and bring in people willing to serve instead of people looking to get wealthy gaming the system. I’ll vote for a stinky wet sneaker before I will cast a vote for Lamar Alexander. I’m not a third party supporter but something has to change or we are screwed.

    Wait wait wait. He shot him in the back. I’ll bet his hands where up. Normally ya might think shooting someone in the back is an indication they were running away. Maybe? So even in states where there are laws permitting you to protect yourself, shooting someone in the back is not a detail in your favor. Clearly the 22 yo was not white or he would have been charges with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal discharge of a firearm, and probably murder because shooting someone in the back sort of implies you were a little past the point of defending yourself.

    I have a reasonable compromise.

    Protestors – Don’t call the police when you need protection or someone robs you. They might shoot a criminal or something and if the criminal is in a protected class that will be bad. So just don’t call them. Call Rev Al. Ask him to send over someone to protect you.

    Police – Just refuse to go into high crime neighborhoods. If you see a criminal in the inner city or ghetto area just go the other way. Leave ‘em to fend for themselves. Why risk it? You might do something totally legitimate in the name of protecting & serving but there is a high probability it will turn on you. You can’t protect people who don’t want to be protected. They will call you just to set you up. Just don’t go. Draw up maps of “no-go” zones and forget about it.

    If you actually don’t know the difference between charity and welfare I feel sorry for you. Oh and hey, before you pretend to tell us how Christ would feel, I dare say, it would be a good idea to get to know Him first.

    Amen. Not a dime to these jock, joke, thugs. No foozeball, no hockey, no spectator sports at all. The sooner Americans stop wasting their time and money on panem et circenses the better off they will be.

    Could be he has a digestion problem caused by his rectal – cranial inversion.

  • [2] December 7, 2014 at 3:28pm

    wow. Did you have a stroke or something? Might be time to work on reading comprehension.

    If Obama had a son…. Oh wait! He might have looked like that man but he wouldn’t have SOUNDed anything like that man. The “not a victim” mindset if a powerful thing. For any person. Regardless of “fill in the blank”.
    I wonder if E.T.Williams pulled himself out of the ghetto mindset on his own? It has always been a source of frustration to me why more really bright and capable young men can’t pull themselves out of that downward spiral. They are trapped in a bad system but first and foremost they are trapped by their own mindset.
    Nice message from this guy. He has my respect.

    Impressive. But even more impressive is that he doesn’t appear to have to do anything to support himself. So. As Pat would say, “What’s that? Who pays your salary?”. My bet is that we do. Or some university. (which is sort of the same as “we do”)
    A couple years of good winds and that will mostly be gone. Sandstone. One notch above sand castles at the beach in terms of life expectancy..

    Good story. I have seen exactly the same mentality demonstrated in ghetto dwellers of many colors. The hood is the life they know and they can’t leave it. It is their world and there is just something mentally ingrained that keeps them there. When they say “white people don’t get it” they are right but what we don’t get is why the hell you can’t take an opportunity laid right at your feet and get yourself out. THAT is what we don’t understand. We don’t understand it because it is an insane, self-destructive way to think. You get a chance to get out of that sh$%-hole ghetto, away from the crime and the poverty and you won’t do it. Yeah – no kidding – most of us “don’t get it” – when it comes to that way of thinking. How could we “get it”? It is irrational.

    50 yds? Better retake your google maps course. Looks like 70-80 feet to me.

  • [1] November 26, 2014 at 6:26am

    I don’t care who ya are, that there is funny.

  • [8] November 25, 2014 at 7:01pm

    Amen Fish- The problem is this pattern of ghetto poverty and lawlessness is something our political leadership encourages. I have met Mike Brown. There are hundreds of thousands of him out there. Po’d, full of fight and no humanity trained into him. He can’t imagine what it is like to be in the other guys shoes because he just wants his kingdom. Shabby as it is. Sucks but that is life down on the democratic party plantation. That is where they wanted you before Lincoln and that is where they want you now. Uncle Al Sharpton the massas trained stooge will entertain ya next.

  • [7] November 25, 2014 at 5:07pm

    Bad decision to talk to ANY of the press. There is nothing positive that can come from it. His lawyers should be ashamed for this poor advice. Stupid move.

    I see the expression on the shop owners face but he could see the same expression on mine because WE, you me and every other responsible person with a job are going to PAY for this. WE are the ones who pay for these pimples on the a$% of society. WE allow these dirt bags to exist in fact we encourage them to exist. Every time we vote for a handout program supporting politician from BOTH parties we encourage it. Oh vote for Mitch he brings home the bacon for KY, or vote for Lamar he gets us money for TN families. Well here ya go. Ya got what you paid for. Now pay some more cause these people are not going away. In fact they are multiplying.

    Ya know you would be exactly right if this were Mayberry RFD with a misbehaving Billy-bob and officer Andy. The problem is that isn’t where we are. I wish we were back there too but that isn’t our current situation. Sucks but a 12 year old with a semi-auto can do a lot of damage in a REALLY short amount of time. So this is what happens. Ya know this is why I live out in the country were the worse thing that happens on any given day is my neighbor’s cows get into my garden.

  • November 25, 2014 at 8:27am

    When I was 12 I had 3 or 4 guns BUT I didn’t bring them to a playground. You are correct however that the common level of violence in urban areas puts any cop on the defensive. A number of folks on here seem to view the cop in this situation as “the government oppressor”. Duh. Don’t look now but generally our cops are our neighbors. They are our neighbors and doing a job that I for one wouldn’t want to do in today’s environment. Especially inner city areas because you are correct – it could just as easily been a real gun.

  • November 25, 2014 at 7:57am

    Amen. “shoot to wound” is fantasy land crap. When you pull out your weapon the outcome needs to be understood or you shouldn’t own a gun. If you don’t intend to kill when you pull that thing out then don’t pull it out.
    This whole thing is so unfortunate but if you have ever been in the moment you might have a bit more sympathy for the officer. I’m not saying it isn’t tragic but I’m pretty sure that cop is going to play this tape in his head through many a sleepless night.

  • [1] November 25, 2014 at 5:38am

    Every doctor’s office or hospital lobby or public area runs this pure crap on their screens day in, day out. It is sick. The average person actually believes these propagandists are doing “the news”. We want American’s to wake up? Not likely.
