    Expect a swift retraction of this policy. The fact that the spokesperson for the University didn’t respond says they’re paddling fast, trying to extricate themselves from this foolish decision.

    Okay, young man, I’m sick of reading about you and your self-serving grandstanding. The more I read about your family history, the more I feel sorry for your parents….not you.

    YOU, young man, have spit in the face of your family; not just your country. They gave unselfishly of themselves so that you could see firsthand the goodness of people who put aside racial differences. They gave you the opportunity to make something of yourself so that you could be a LEADER, in spite of the environment you were born into.

    YOU, young man, have ignored the example they gave you. Rather than taking your platform of privilege and leading young men and women to understand that race is not WHO you are, but just an external trapping that can get in the way of becoming who you are meant to be, you have chosen to ignore the painfully obvious example they lived.

    Get off your sorry soapbox. You are truly pathetic.

    It’s hard to believe that a black man that makes as much money as he does can’t see the hypocrisy of his own position. Oppression?

    This man has found out first-hand what hard work can bring to someone who works hard to achieve his goals. In America, if you work hard, you CAN achieve great things. So many other countries have people who work ten times harder than he ever will and don’t make enough money to feed their families.

    He’s not going to stand up and show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color?

    SHAME on him!

    Having an earthquake hit in the middle of the night has to be terrifying. Prayers going out for the entire region.

    Yea, and if you watched the footage, you saw how Le Clos deliberately tried to taunt Phelps. He stood in front of him making barking sounds, along with a bizarre “dance” — all to try and get Phelps to react. It lasted for several minutes.

    I think Phelps showed extreme control.

    It is hard to believe they have a minimum weight of 400 lbs and only three passengers. I read elsewhere that there is also an age minimum of 14 years old. Do you remember if that is the case? Were there any young kids on the ride when you went?

  • [3] August 8, 2016 at 9:59am

    Another article I read said that riders had to be at least 14 years old and 54 inches tall.

    DT, you can’t be serious.

    You like Trump because you believe he’s a threat to our crooked government? He’s made a career out of buying politicians so that he can squeak behind, under and through messy regulations.

    Trump will take “crooked government” to a level never seen before. He’ll decimate those who don’t agree with him and handsomely reward those who kiss his ring.

    Just wait.

    Bernie may be foolish. Trump is downright sociopathic.

    I said “Never Trump” months ago and there STILL isn’t anything he’s done that convinces me otherwise. He is proving he can’t be corralled and is just itching to really take the gloves off.

    Just wait……

    This happened just a few miles from my house — an upper-middle class area where crime is rare. Most people around here rarely lock their doors. Don’t know the last time there was a murder here; never one involving teens.

    An arrest was made a few hours ago. A 20-year-old white kid. Rumor is that he’s an ex boyfriend.

    Sig, this happened just a few miles from my house. The murder scene is across the street from Roswell high school and also right across from my church. The area is upper-middle class and as far from inner-city crime as you can get. Most people I know don’t even lock their doors except when they go to bed or out of town.

    Don’t know when the last time was that there was a murder here — I’ve never heard of a murder involving teens.

    Police are now saying they have arrested a suspect. Rumor is that he is an ex-boyfriend.
    ……sad, no matter how you look at it.

    I had the same thought. Was he simply a voyeur or did he actually steal something? Urbanski, you shoulda dug a little deeper.

    Also, what the heck were they thinking, leaving a door unlocked in their crime-ridden city?

  • [23] July 20, 2016 at 7:53pm

    My firefighter son has the same opinion. Weak-kneed leadership is the direct result of kow-towing to the PC police and it starts right at the very top.

    I don’t see how you can agree with West’s conclusion. Hillary was just declared free to become President by the FBI and the DoJ. That will go a LONG way in vindicating her with the American public.

    I wish West had focused on the bigger problem, which is that the Rule Of Law is now officially dead in America.

    What a shame that Colonel West seems to place party politics above the Rule of Law. Being giddy about what he sees as a clear Democratic loss in November is clearly ignoring the true travesty of this decision.

    It matters not one whit whether the R or the D wins in November if justice is no longer blind.

    That’s why Bill and Loretta met last week —- so she could assure Bill that Hillary will start getting the Royal Treatment she deserves.

  • [43] July 5, 2016 at 12:03pm

    Okay, so if Comey admits that Clinton violated the Espionage Act, is there no recourse? It can’t be more clear that he’s saying she’s committed treason, but nobody really cares.

    Just move on.

    Too bad Congress is spineless.

    I don’t know where you’re getting your statistics from — please cite source.

    First-trimester clinics, who are the ones that use the pill (RU486) are not affected by the new laws. They are aimed at the procedure which is used in the second trimester, where they use surgical instruments to go inside the womb and remove the baby, piece-by-piece. Because the doctor is blindly going into the uterus, it is not uncommon for them to puncture the uterus. At that point, the woman needs hospital-level care, as abortion clinics are currently not equipped to handle this kind of emergency.

    See the procedure explained here: http://www.abortionprocedures.com/

    What a ridiculous statement.

    Viability has nothing to do with whether the fetus is a human being, with a distinct DNA, that is deserving of protection. Pro-abortion advocates cling tenaciously to the “viability” standard because they know science is not on their side.

  • [6] June 27, 2016 at 1:49pm

    I’m sure someone on here would know the particulars, but I can remember listening to Glenn on the radio several years ago talk about how law schools, starting around the 1930′s, no longer taught students to refer back to the Constitution when deciding a case. Instead, they began to use past cases (“case law”) as the rationale for whether something should be permitted.

    So, today, law students — who become lawyers and then judges — are clueless as to how the case they are studying stacks up against the Constitution

    That’s how it’s become irrelevant.
