The only way those that work can fix this is to finely say we are done paying taxes. It is like feeding a stray dog, once you do it they will live on your doorstep.I was on unemployment for three months back in 1980. When I figured out my job wasn’t coming back and unemployment wasn’t going to be there for long I found work. CUT OFF all hand outs for ANYONE that is able to sweep a floor or wash a dish. If they can’t stand give them a chair. If you get uncomfortable enough you will find work. I am sick of paying my bills and also the lazy bastar*’s who figured out it is nice to just stay home.

I’m with you, what did we spend on that little experiment? You could make a better video by putting socks on a cat. Pretty sad that we need term limits when all we need to do is vote the bums out. FLAT TAX,,, Good luck. The majority of brain dead voters that keep re-electing those bums don’t pay tax anyway. They won’t agree to paying any % when the gov can confiscate it from others.

In regards to the giver: he and those that think like him are the main problem in this country. Remember the old saying “call a spade a spade”. If it is a known fact that a certain group of people commit a majority of the crime we need to face the problem to fix it. Pretending that it doesn’t exsist is why we are where we are now as a country.

Remove the banana and you still have a great photo. Shots like that are why the administration now controls all the pictures being released.
Reminds me of the clip Ramzpaul has here at the end of his video from Moochelle in the White House...
Remove the banana and put a dildo........problem solved for both of them, and not racist at all.

I didn’t see much saving going on there by anyone. Even the off duty first responder was doing NO compressions or rescue breathing. The public was even worse. Everyone had cell phones except maybe the guy drinking the tasty beverage while he stood there. Society is lost.

What geraldo and almost every “journalist” needs to remember is that there is a difference between calling the potus names and expecting honesty. I am SO tired of lawyer type answers to direct questions. Cut the BS and answer the damn questions. If you won’t you diserve NO respect regardless of the office.

“It is a harsh punishment, but they don’t tolerate taking money from the public.”
last time I checked they get 100% of there money from the public. Maybe I’m out of touch but if the snow plow opperator doesnt bury my driveway I will walk out and tip them. On clean up day if I see a city employee going above and beyond I try to hand them a few bucks. Last week when it was below zero I gave a very senior citezen $10. for returning a shopping cart rather than leaving it to damage someones car at walmart. I would MUCH rather show some gratitude personally when a person does the right thing than donate to a united way CEO.

These are the same people that think the prison population should reflect the % of whites and blacks rather than who is commiting the crime. Maybe white people relate more to Jerry than blacks. I’m pretty sure there are a lot of black comedians with an overwhelming number of black audiance members. Here’s an idea, let me pick who I want to see and forget what color I am.

“Building administration met with the students to discuss the inconsistency of this day versus the other planned theme days including PJ day and Twin day,” What the hell, how about learning something like history or math rather than dress up BS. I’ll bet there is a whole lot more planning outfts than homework in this school.
February 5, 2014 at 1:07am
simple, shut off cell phones and shows like the view. There are too many distractions for the sheeple to pay attention to what is happening.
February 5, 2014 at 12:49am
the day no one jumps the border I’m with you. Until then, lets hear the stories.
February 5, 2014 at 12:44am
EXACTLY you will notice that your doctor will ask those kind of questios now too. I work in healthcare and we are trained to ask and or look for signs. As long as the govt. is paying ANY part of the bill they want your info to be used for things like involuntary observation and the denile of the “privelige” of owning a gun, after all there are ways around the second amendment.

I have some mixed emotions on this. Were there any gunshots fired,,,, NO. Were the resedents using stolen credit cards,,,, sounds like it. If I were a cop I would want some protection so that I make it home at the end of my shift. It probably didn’t require five of them with a battering ram though. If the residents are innocent the city should be buying a new front door. It is probably just practice for the cops for the post appocolipse that is coming.
Wait until they come after you for those unpaid parking tickets. An MRAP through your front door and snipers lasing you from across the street.
Sounds to me like you had better go back to sleep. And cops prolly make it home after their shift more than the average garbage man does, or tree trimmer, or highway worker and on and on. What a myth! Just shoot everything around you including family pets " so you can go home tonight". Dam PIGS!
"Were the resedents using stolen credit cards,,,, sounds like it."
I got the exact opposite from the article. The cops had a warrant and found absolutely no evidence relating to stolen credit cards. I hope they sue and win big.
At this point I'd say they don't deserve to go home at night. Go directly to morgue. Do not pass go. Do not collect bribe. I'm waiting for someone to fight back with belt fed weapons. This is the kind of story that gives me a tear if joy every time a cop gets a case of high velocity lead poisoning.
The cops didn't find what they were looking for. Innocent until proven guilty sound familiar? This is why we can't have nice things.
why does stolen credit cards justify this type of arrest/search? you mean they couldn't wait to capture the perp when they leave the house, or actually while they are committing the crime? Instead they put everyone in the house at risk. They used to knock on doors to serve warrants. Kicking in the door doesn't qualify as a knock
Please this was total overkill, they use these little incidents for practice where they get to get their thug on, terrifying average citizens in the process. Their should be a big outcry from the public about the alarming use use force by cops in this country.
@IMAWAKE. So do you drive a semi every day, "so i can go home at night" Just run to the bank in my "semi" so i can go home at night. Common sense and proper response to each individual scenario is something the authorities just don;t want to deal with anymore. So think worst case scenario for every thing a cop does each day. So you are ok with the traffic cop pulling you over and calling for the swap team to write that turn signal out ticket, " so he can go home at night". If thats where you want us to be then I say go for it, but don't expect the rest of us to just sit idly by and just take it. I am sure hundreds of criminals will get away while they super overkill every traffic stop or warrant execution for whatever reason on the 99$% of us that are doing nothing seriously wrong. Sheesh, some days I just can't stand it anymore.
Many cops don't need a lot of practice. They got in Iraq or Afghanistan. Remember soldiers and marines are taught to kill not detain.
B S and I don't mean Barbra Streisand. This warrant was apparently legit but should have been served by two officers during daylight hours. This was SWAT overkill, possibly for their "practice". I hope the family sues the pants off the town and elects a new mayor and council. THAT is where the responsibility lies.
"Were the resedents using stolen credit cards,,,, sounds like it", where did you get that? It very clearly stated that they WERE NOT the individuals they were looking for in this raid! Over kill on the law enforcement's behalf! Have fun when they accidentally ram your door down and come in your house military still!
Cops don't even make the top 10 most dangerous jobs lists. The reason these cops acted as they did is because they are cowards who get a rush from pretending like they're in a dangerous situation, so they did everything they could think of to escalate the situation to the point where they might have an excuse to kill someone so they could pat each other on the back and convince themselves they are heroes. Most police these days are just hot-headed, badge heavy psychopathic cowards in matching costumes...and yes - they have been militarized.
Although they did everything they could to elicit a response that would have allowed them to use their power trinkets against their hated and sworn enemy (the unwashed), they failed. Instead of the drunken party they had planned for after work, they had to sit through remedial training back at headquarters. Instead of high 5s and pats on the backs, they returned as failures, rubes, no longer trusted to wear their body armor home to impress the neighborhood children and their neighbor's wife. But, they can be restored if they try hard enough to rejoin the "team."
On another note, hello NSA analyst. I know you are there watching my key strokes. Know how I can tell? Well typing at my normal speed confuses you. You are slow. So, you delay my return characters such that I must pause between keystrokes long enough for your dull mind to figure out what I've typed. I hope you are not getting paid very much to violate my country's Constitution and my right to freedom of speech. You don't scare me. Nazis are idiots and weak people. So stuff it buddy. Meet me out front of my home and we will see who walks away. Hint, update your will.
"Luckily, he heard one of the cops in the other room say “police” before they kicked in the door, so he re-holstered his weapon, sat back down and placed his hands in his lap away from his gun. If he failed to hear police identify themselves, he could encountered officers with his weapon drawn and could have possibly been shot and killed."
The problem is that criminals have used these tactics before and it's likely they will use it more in the future. If you draw your weapon and then put it away because someone yells "police" you are risking becoming a crime victim. In the average persons home there is no reason for police to do no knock raids. All they have to do is knock (ring the doorbell) and wait for the occupant to open the door. At that point they show the warrant and enter. If someone breaks in to my house screaming and yelling and I'm confused as to what's going on, I would be predisposed to respond. Who's fault is that? Mine? The homeowner who is only trying to protect himself from someone breaking into his home. Or the police for using tactics that should be restricted to instances where a life is in danger (and NOT theirs BTW) such as a hostage situation. These tactics are becoming all to common place and NEED to be stopped before innocent people as well as cops start getting shot and killed. If you are a cop and want to talk to me, please just knock on my door, and wait.

We forget there careers depend on making us think we aren’t throwing away money on this stuff.

Wow, a rock moved. Where do you suppose all those craters came from. And I thought those billions of $$ were wasted on mars missions. We better get another probe sent ASAP.
January 19, 2014 at 8:43am
No surprise, they like our money not our political views. Just shut up and work for the state.

How often must she walk around with that kind of cash? If I find myself with 10% of that I would hide it in my underware till I got to the destination, But then I don’t trust people anymore.

It works the opposit with congress. They take the envelope from you while you are stopping to get coffee.
January 16, 2014 at 1:29pm
BTW, two separate cops at the station told me I should have kept it.
Very Very bad idea! Who knows how it was used. any unsolve shootings that needed a suspect?
