    Geez. If you have a problem with him and his sign, stop your damn car and go tell him why you have a problem with him and his sign. This is exactly what’s wrong with America. No one wants to have any discourse, so the state has to step in (the officer) and play referee because both sides are sick and disgusting. In this case, she’s more sick and disgusting because she seems to think she has freedom of speech but that the other guy doesn’t.

    Maybe he should’ve hauled them both in and held them for 24 hours. :-P

    @Jason: Trump isn’t pushing for these endorsements any longer. It’s establishment GOP doing it now. They’re pushing for the top name GOP people to fall in line and endorse him out there will be consequences. Trump already threatened to try to unseat Cruz after Cruz didn’t endorse him at the RNC. Establishment GOP were probably planning to help him do it since they don’t like Cruz either. The establishment are scared to death of upsetting Trump because he will do whatever it takes to destroy them and they know it. This is really, really bad. Trump makes it personal and not about policy.

    I have far more respect for Sasse and Lee at this point than I do for Cruz. Cruz has caved to save his career instead of standing on principle.

    “It’s about stopping Progressivism and the total destruction of our Nation.”

    Then it’s going to be a big giant fail. No matter who wins, progressivism marches on and the nation is destroyed. Do you really think mandatory maternity leave isn’t progressivism? It absolutely is and will lead to the destruction of the nation, just like all the social programs in Europe have led to the destruction of their nations.

    LOL. Sure he did. I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you. Dirt cheap :-P

    Cruz hasn’t said a darn thing since the RNC (at least nothing worth reporting). He bowed out and all anyone can do is keep talking about him. He’s focused on his reelection to the Senate.

    “Voting on principle went out the window for me with Cruz losing and with the Libertarians going after Bernie’s supporters.”

    In that case, you were never going to vote on principle to begin with. Voting on principle means you vote for the candidate you want, despite what everyone else has done or who ends up being the “chosen one”. If that means you write in your candidate, that’s what you do. If that means you find someone else that’s running that is close to your chosen candidate, that’s what you do. It doesn’t mean you toss everything out the window because “your guy” didn’t win.

    I don’t like Trump at all, but I agree with this.

    If I were a journalist, I wouldn’t be letting Trump handle my travel arrangements. Nope, not at all. Why trust him to get me there on time when he clearly doesn’t like my profession?

    Perhaps they’ll learn from this. Then again, probably not. They’d rather whine and moan about how they weren’t given special treatment. And they wonder why the American people have so much disdain for them?

    The memorial isn’t a burial site, just like the Vietnam memorial isn’t a burial site. It’s a memorial.

    If you don’t know the difference between a gravesite and a memorial, then perhaps you should find out before commenting.

    Where’s the “WHO CARES?!” option? That’s right. Who FREAKING cares?!?!?!

    What, did someone get upset because someone took a selfie at the memorial? Would it somehow be different if someone had their picture taken at the memorial? People take selfie’s for a myriad of reasons. Goodness gracious. I think the only place it might be unacceptable to take a selfie would be inside of Auschwitz (taking one outside at the gate would be fine to me).

    No. The “key man” clause allows them to depart if someone else has departed while their contract is in effect. She could’ve left each time her contract was up for negotiation.

    The only connection is that she had a “key man” clause. Those of us that listen to Glenn on a daily basis know that a “key man” clause isn’t at all unusual in the media business. Pretty much every personality at Fox and anywhere else has a “key man” clause.

    @ithinklam: It’s not just a Democrat issue. Both Democrats and Republicans are in a state of “Do not care”. At least, they don’t care beyond the ballot box. This crap effects everyone on a daily basis and most of them only care to take part during 1 day of the year. That’s a huge problem.

    I don’t trust Trump on this. I don’t trust anyone that says “we have to take care of them” when asked what Americans will do without the ACA. If he doesn’t know beyond “well, we have to take care of them”, then I don’t trust anything that comes out of him because he’ll simply “compromise” until the free market approach is gone.

    What will Americans do without health insurance? Their community will help them out. Charities, churches, and neighbors will all help them out.

    So sorry (not sorry), but I don’t trust Trump or any of them on actual reform. Nobody really wants to reform the system because it would mean less control. They all like having control.

    “On the contrary, the safe return of U.S. citizens to neutral Switzerland was widely viewed as a victory for international diplomacy and U.S. foreign policy. ”

    LOL. If it’s an exchange of money for citizens, how is it a victory? How is it a victory for “diplomacy”? A payoff is only a victory for the captors. They get millions and now they know you’ll pay.

    We aren’t just reliving the 1930s. We’re reliving the 1800s, when Adams was paying off the Barbari Pirates (Muslims) in order to release US citizens.

    “Playing any games in a memorial or a grave site is highly disrespectful and should be banned.”

    Any game? Including chess or checkers? So let’s just take away a few freedoms because it’s a veterans park?

    The very thing these men fought for, freedom, you are essentially arguing should be taken away. Think about that.

    And he fell hook, line, and sinker right into it.

    “So if two people come into the park, set up a table and play checkers or chess, is that disrespectful?”

    If the city gets their way, it’ll be illegal. The ordinance would ban “gaming” in the park.

    Gotta hand it to that veteran though. He showed them. Act a certain way and you can get fascism implemented at your park.

    I doubt very much they bothered to go online and fill out the form. Some of these veterans seem to think it’s easier to just take matters into their own hands and deny people the very freedoms they fought to protect. They seem to have no problem with certain freedoms being taken away since at least then “they’ll show some respect”.

    No sir, they won’t show you any respect. As long as the pokestop or gym or whatever it is remains, they’ll keep playing, they’ll just hide it better. When someone with a clue fills out the form and gets it removed, then they’ll just stop showing up, but they still won’t have your respect because you acted like an idiot when it was most important. Next time state your case civilly, brush off the sarcasm, and tell them why you’d like it if they wouldn’t play the game there.

  • [6] August 1, 2016 at 7:36pm

    LOL. They’re going to try to ban “gaming” at the park? Yeah, good luck with that. Are they planning to have police roam the park during the day to make sure no one is gaming too? Going to ask every person with a smartphone if they can see what you’re doing?

    The veteran fought for freedom. Maybe he’ll be successful in getting fascism implemented at the VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK instead. But at least everyone will respect the veterans now, right? /sarc (or maybe they’ll just be better at hiding it).

    Language barrier? Um, no. He said the customers felt uncomfortable. The only “language barrier” is the guy answering the phone kept saying “ok” to angry customers. Chinese people tend to say “ok” as an acknowledgement that they’ve heard you, not that they understand you. I’ve experienced this at work with the vietnamese and chinese guys. They’ll tell you “ok” but if they don’t tell you “it’s working”, all they’re doing is acknowledging that they heard you say something.

    The reality is that he got a lot of backlash and is now backtracking. The people acting like racist ******** need a lesson in manners. I don’t care if he did tell the police he didn’t want them coming back, that’s no reason to call someone up and act like a jerk. Protest the restaurant. Tell all your friends not to go there. But there’s no reason to call him up and act like a racist.

    The poor guy probably didn’t think it would go beyond his little community. In fact, it probably wouldn’t have except for the Internet.

    FYI, I’ve been the white guy in many chinese establishments. When I’m not with my wife (she’s Taiwanese), I feel very uncomfortable. When she’s around and speaking to them in Chinese, I’m fine. Maybe she has Chinese privilege :-P

    He built it from the ground up. He wrote the code and Eduardo Saverin provided the funding. Initial employees were hired based on competing in events.

    Did he steal the idea? Yes, yes he did. Did he steal any code? Nope. Everything he wrote was from scratch and the beginnings were all written by him.

    @Rosech: “Which means parents should NEVER ever give them allowances to waste.” And how exactly does one prevent a kid of this age from spending the allowance on something wasteful? You either give them an allowance or you don’t. Once they’re old enough, it’s pretty difficult to keep them from spending it on frivolous things. I’m sure you even purchased things that your parents thought were frivolous at the time.
