This slur on transsexuals is un-called-for. In fact, they suffer more of this sort of bullying than anybody.

Schilling embarrassed the Yankees in TWO World Series — once wearing Arizona colors, and the second time as a Red Sock. One can see how a few New York fans might resent that — but there are acceptable ways to express that, and this isn’t one of them.

I grew up in a school where your freedom to argue with others was limited by your ability to fight; and let me tell you, it wasn’t great at all, unless you happened to be built like King Kong. If adults want to fight duels over opinions, I’m all in favor of re-legalizing that.
But kids and teenagers either need to be off limits, or we’d better start arming them before letting them out the front door.

This is because both government and religion constantly peddle phony morality in the name of the real thing, until no one who believes any of them can bring himself to care about right and wrong any longer.
The real thing is simply the Golden Rule. Other people have rights just like you do. That’s all anybody needs to be taught about morality.

Giving the unemployed welfare checks creates as much demand as if they were working, so if demand created jobs, they’d be working already. No. Real (private sector) jobs are created when the wealthy believe they can profit by creating them. This is why it’s vital, *especially* for the poor, to support laws that allow the wealthy to keep their money. Countries where the law doesn’t allow that, very quickly become banana republics.

Sorry, but I’m not ready to shoot back anytime soon. The system had better start purging itself of these scumbags NOW, though, if it wants to keep the job as its own monopoly.

What he should have said is we ALL get the Government the people who voted for the winner deserve.

If their conduct results in the death of a civilian, yes.
But certainly all the penalties SquareHead named. Reprimand my tail!!!

Bad language and un-called for suggestive messages justify shaming the perp, and maybe getting him fired or expelled. They do not justify force. Advocate force and you are playing right into the hands of those who would take away everyone’s freedom to stop a few bad guys. Don’t do that.
@Wolf and JD - true enough but I personally would have to get satisfaction in a more personal way is all I'm saying. Snarky words from behind a keyboard wouldn't satisfy my mind. Not saying it's right or right for anyone else.

I would have “outed” each commenter to his school or employer, and his family. But not to the world. “Letting the jungle take care of its own” is only appropriate for miscreants who are beyond the reach of justice in any other form.

Eric Holder was only ever “willing to fight for” corruption and racism. If those things are what’s “right” in the President’s eyes, he needs to go to prison yesterday.

True, whichever of them wrote the shirt.

The bruises are indeed what tyranny looks like. Parents are tyrants, no one elects them.

If public humiliation had been all the mother did, I would hope the police would allow it. It’s the beating marks that justify this arrest. Hopefully the child will be taken away from her mother.

Good. Don’t ever back down.
DHS is unnecessary and violates our freedom. Keep it shut down until we get the chance to disband it.

Up to now, I’ve been going on the theory that the only reason anyone would give Sharpton a job is as an extortion payoff to keep him from turning his thug followers loose against that company and its trading partners.
So I think the plaintiffs are just envious. They didn’t get to the trough first.
Compare and contrast the behavior of, pick your favorite modern Islamo-Semitic grouplet, and Tissaphernes (401BC) jdgalt.

It’s about the time some of the non-bad-guy Muslims stood up and tried to purge the jihadists from their midst. More power to them. Of course it won’t surprise me if they become fatwa targets.

Bad coincidence. Cases where police killed someone needlessly (like Eric Garner) need to be distinguished and NOT conflated with cases where the dead person attacked first and had to be killed (like Martin and Brown).
Jdgalt.. your post, makes right of center look bad. Try reading some historical counts on law enforcement officer deaths in the United States… http://www.nleomf.org/facts/officer-fatalities-data/year.html
I’ll leave it to you to pull up U.S. Census population totals to provide context on officer death totals.
