With 300 Million people in this Country, don’t you think we can find two people not named Bush or Clinton? I will vote third party if my choices are Clinton or Bush. They are the same and I personally don’t care which one wins. If I actually had a choice I would vote Republican.

Zappa – the truth hurts. Try to get over it. Everyone is a racist to you. All that finger pointing points right back at you. Racism is a terrible thing. Perhaps you should seek counseling.

John didn’t say squat about war. And what makes you such an expert on the military and war?

Bring on the delusion. I will vote for them. If they don’t win the primaries then you can vote for the winner. Your call.

I held my nose and voted for Romney. Good individual, bad politics. Never again. I will vote for a conservative (politically, fiscally, morally, religiously) or nobody. And not voting does not equal voting Democrat. It is simply not voting. It is their job to get my vote. It is not my job to send them to Washington. It is all of our job.

Allen, if you know anything about Texas, then you know that Austin has been a Liberal/Socialist stronghold for many decades. Most of the rest of Texas (except the Valley) is not like that.
Lunar, This woman (White, Black or purple) has 4 children. While you probably don’t have a mother that will claim you, these children care about her. Children that actually like their mother generally don’t care about her color. Your ignorant mind probably cannot grasp such a complex thought. You sound like someone of middle east origin since you obviously have no respect for women. You must normally follow the news on the al jazeera network.

Chuck, I don’t know if she is alive. I pray she is. The “was” reference was to dealer asking if she “was” white. No ill intent here. Just don’t feel that the reference to color is necessary to this story.
 November 18, 2014 at 1:09pm
Who cares? It is a pretty safe bet she was human. Someone’s daughter, someone’s mother. You need a life.
"a pretty safe bet"?
That is certain, isn't it?
Also, the story doesn't say that she died -- but you and dealer both refer to her in the past tense. Has she died?
His point is RACE quite likely WAS the reason this happened.
A black man pushes a TOTAL stranger onto subway tracks the previous day with ferguson coming up and you DONT think this has racial tones ?

Was he a gentle giant? Is that apropos?
He's making a point that the attack might be racially or politically motivated.
I whole heartedly agree - I couldn't care less what color skin either the monster who did this is or the victim has. You have one race-the human race and within that race they break down into two basic types - the Evil and the Decent. Let's not be like the left who loves to divide people into groups and set up the oppressor against the oppressed groups. That's why you have folks that only whip up outrage in the circumstances that fit their manipulative agenda.
Depending on the severity of the burns she may be better off not living! The total excruciating and long lasting pain is unimaginable.
Why is it that some of you JUST DON'T GET IT? The Black community have been whipped into a ravenous violent frenzy thanks to the cough, cough leadership of the USA....they HATE whitey! Whether they have grounds or not doesn't come into play for them! They want BLOOD and they will extract it. Get a brain people and wake the H up! There is plenty of evidence out there to speculate that this indeed COULD be about RACE!

I live just 25 minutes from Wichita, Kansas where this happened - yes, she is still alive. I attended Wichita State University (WSU), and the school is located in a not so great part of Wichita. Sexual assaults, robbery, car-jacking, and all sorts of problems take place in that part of Wichita - that is why the Wichita Police Department are on campus and have an escort service available to all WSU students and faculty. I had the number to the WSU Police department programmed into my phone - and if I needed a ride to my car all it took was a call to them and they would pick me up and drive me to my vehicle - wait until I got in, started it, and began to back out before leaving to pick up another student or faculty member for the same thing. If you have any other questions - let me know as I have been staying up to date on this story with our local station KAKE-TV. I will try to answer what I know at this time. I do know that she is in serious condition at this point - but alive. The police have no suspects and no one is talking - which is typical for this area of Wichita. The investigation is on-going and WSU and the Wichita Police Department has ramped up their security and patrols of the campus and area. They have not released her name (as is protocol in a rape case), nor have they given her race. The only thing they have stated is that she is a 36 year old woman with children.

So electricity and water are well managed in your opinion? Do you think they are keeping prices down? Being efficient managers? The folks in California might disagree. Ogubber thinks our prices should be much higher. You probably believe that as well. You are obviously a troll.

Capt TOOOM – It is not necessarily Bigotry that is the problem. It is the public expression of it that is prohibited (or frowned upon) for public servants. If you ever wore those bars in the service of your country you would understand. You can think whatever you want just don’t speak it or act on it or it will be to your peril.

You don’t get it. Obama has had more influence than any other President before him. Every bit of it negative. The man has an Agent Orange thumb. I think he inherited it from LBJ. And everything he touches dies a lingering death except Obama Care and that leaves its patients dying.
Read the poll numbers of the people who bothered to vote on this.
Most of you are living in a little fantasy world of
ALL you care about is party affiliation and labels

WOW unarmed COPS! Then everyday would be a holiday (if you are a crook).

Not far from the truth.

OK Zac, “you hate Obama because he’s black”. I said it like you told me to. To be honest I think it is true. You really do hate Obama because he’s black. You are so 1950s. Get your s**t together man and hate him because he is a worthless idiot that is destroying in 8 years what it took us over 200 years to build.
Come on now Bigrod58 you can't be serious Obama is destroying America really and how is he doing this exactly. He's been to busy cleaning up after the Bush administration to destroy any thing except maybe his marriage, and a few terrorist! I can't take the right serious until I hear some criticism for the party and some republicans speak on the real story behind the war in Iraq and the real reasons we went to war I know the reasons do you. I have voted republican for 20 years now but never again unless honest Abe comes back from the beyond, and he'll have to bring Hannibal Hamlin along with him and I don't think that's gonna happen, Lincoln was a great man but not that great. What we need, is a new generation of radical republicans and I don't see any on the horizon, what we have is sneiffling weaklings waiting for someone to by their vote. And in that sense by our country. Tell me how much should be paid for America? A million$ a billion$ you tell me. 50 years ago a trillion dollars was unheard of, I guarantee you the richest could pool that amount together in minutes with a few wire transfers. The right has been bought and paid for. Just ask our friends in Israel. I guarantee you that they have more influence over our foreign policy than me or you and your gonna try and convince me thats right. Not in my America it's not. Wise up brother. America first. It's citizens first.
Hate spell check changing my words more then spineless neoconservative right wingers. "What we have in the Republican party is snivelling weaklings". Period point blank. Sorry I didn't catch that in my original post but it is late in the evening.

Eudope – Look around you. Did you create it? Nature, Earth, the solar system? Seems pretty organized to me. Probably took some intelligence don’t you think? A person as intelligent as yourself maybe? Probably not. Something greater I suppose. Call it whatever you want. Whatever, it is greater than you and me and there is no doubt in my mind that it exists, the proof is Everywhere. Perhaps you are just too blind to notice. Look around.

All one thing? What would that one thing be? It obviously must exist. Pray tell, what is it?

Prosecuting and executing deserters in a time of war is fortunately not a tradition. It is a duty. I highly commend those soldiers who have spoken out against this traitor.
