They did the best interest of the citizenry is to have and unimpeded ability to vote. You really think there is a substantive reason that virtually all the voting laws are being proposed in swing states with republican controlled legislatures and republican governors. Its not the id requirement, its the nonsensical assertion that drivers licenses, student id cards, medicare cards, etc., etc. are not acceptable forms of id. The only reason to seek a voter registration card is to place barriers for individuals who might for age or economic reasons have difficulty obtaining the cards.
You do not have to be a citizen of these United States to get a driver's license, a school ID, a Medicare card...etc....but you do need to be a citizen of the United States to vote.
How do you determine who is a legal citizen (and thus eligible to vote) and who isn't?
Where do you get the garbage that you spout? The North Carolina law allowed for all of those things. They even offered State I.D. cards at no cost. They went so far as to allow people to vote WITHOUT id's, by signing an affidavit that they were somehow impeded in obtaining photo i.d., and required minimum information to determine the validity of their identification.
Every effort was made to give free access to the polls by citizens, impeding only those not eligible to vote, or those who would commit fraud. The only reason why these laws are contended is to allow illegals to vote, on the assumption that they would vote primarily for Dimocrats, or to make it easier to commit voter fraud.

Just a tip…. it is the smallest of minds that would give a rats ass about who attended what for whatever reason. Might we consider elevating the discussion to some real issues that are facing our country. And who does or doesn’t bake a cake for someone is not one of them.

what jason of course doesn’t mention is that the same group was demonstrating outside the RNC convention. But the low information voters are supposed to make some inferential link here.

Of course that is really not the point nor the real mistake in his comments. Kaine left the governorship of VA with a 57% approval rating and made a decision to run for the US Senate. So the mistake of course was that he wasn’t popular in Virginia, which of based on the FACTS false. But of course the low information voters with focus on the nonsensical slip, because they accept and want to believe he was terrible in VA and nobody liked him. Both are wrong.
But don't you see, it isn't about whether people liked him as a governor it is all about how people feel about him as a governor. I mean it is vital that we address how people feel and not the facts. It's like that thing with the Mexican border. People feel like hordes of Mexicans are crossing the border and that they all rape babies and eat mommies. So as long as people feel that that is true then it is true. In order to get elected you don't need to address facts. Simply respond to their feelings. So you tell people crime is swarming around us and get them to believe it and then tell them you are their only hope to vanquish crime. it's a lullaby for dullards.

Thirty-two officers died in firearms-related incidents so far this year including 14 that were ambush-style attacks, according to the report. During the same period last year, 18 officers were shot and killed in the line of duty including three that were considered ambush attacks. Ok how to you reference a mid year statistic and then extend it to include two unusual and horrific shooting rampages. Which for those who can’t do the math increased the 6 month figure, which was the same as the previous year to 32, or by the exact 14 that were included in the two isolated assaults. As a wise man once said, statistics don’t lie, liars use statistics. Because the truth is police shootings are downs based on historical figures. And let’s take a look at the shooting deaths of police in the roaring twenties if you want to see how well behaved they were in the good old days. lol, this post is a joke.

“He reportedly found that 30 percent of guns recovered at Pittsburgh crime scenes in 2008 were stolen.” Ok well for those who are math challenged that means that 49% of the guns held “illegally” were obtained some other way then by theft. A point which jason might want to pursue in a relevant post.
I believe he meant they were in the system as reported stolen. Some of these guns may have been on the street for decades and very hard to trace because of their age. The information in this study really didn't go far enough. I have a detailed posting above.
I would guess that you're picking and choosing your "numbers" to make a point. The only problem here is that the "study" in question leaves out too much information about what constituted a crime and many other variables. The numbers could go either way with the lack of details.
 July 27, 2016 at 3:57pm
Oh right that makes sense. Somehow the list is accurate enough to force everyone on it to wear an electronic ankle bracelet, but we can’t deny them the right to purchase a gun legally. Do you ideological wingnuts every actually listen to yourselves?
This is not about accuracy, it is about due process. The no fly list does not meet that standard.
Absolutely people like a bendable jump on if there's any chance that someone on a no-fly terrorist watch list isn't given the opportunity to buy a gun but boy to violate their rights under the 1st the 5th the 9th the 14th and probably the third is just really really wow thanks Avenger

The issue is that those shootings are not all against blacks and are not “epidemic”. No its not an epidemic but then again I have never seen a report of police shooting a 12 year old white kid in the suburbs who was carrying a pellet gun, airsoft gun or BB gun. And no I don’t accept the preconceived notion that a 12 year old black kid is necessarily more dangerous than a white 12 year old with the same toy gun.
JROOK, apples and oranges.
How many White 12 year olds in the suburbs, where the crime rate is nowhere near the crime rate of black neighborhoods, are walking around waving toy guns in a menacing way? How many White kids have toy guns with the orange safety tip deliberately broken off? How many black 12 year old kids belong to gangs?
Do the numbers compare equally as a percentage of 12 yr old White kids vs 12 yr old black kids who are committing acts of stupidity like aiming a toy gun at others or reaching for it when a cop pulls up?

“The purpose of this video is to show that THIS incident was a good shoot.” BS the purpose of this post was to obtain a bunch of cheap bait clicks from individuals who want to use it as evidence that the claims of unjustified shootings are people stirring the pot. And the only situations where I can accept a policemen shooting a SUSPECT, as they are not convicted of anything at the point of arrest, is when the suspect threatens them or bystanders with lethal force. Police don’t get to use the BS Stand Your Ground defense because they felt threatened. They have weapons, they can call for backup, etc. etc. But thanks for most of you making my point. And as usual Foowhatever… you have nothing of merit to say.
[-14] July 22, 2016 at 3:24pm
Ok let’s just move beyond the fact that you accept what the uncle says because that’s what you want to believe happened. Its not as though the guys fiance and uncle wouldn’t come up with an explanation in order to help the guy. But even if some of what they say is true, in a civilized society you don’t get to beat the crap out of people and put them in prison for saying something offensive. You want to threaten them in order to make them run fine, but beating them to the extent he did is neither justified nor legal. And to think it is legal is to agree with the dozen or so completely innocent individuals in Florida that have been shot and killed by individuals who got off by using the Stand Your Ground law. And the 12 I reference include a drunk college kid who fell asleep on the wrong apartment balcony. In the morning when he attempted to slide the LOCKED sliding door the owner greeted him with a shot gun and killed him. The owner of course claimed he felt threatened by the college kid who was nothing more than a disoriented neighbor. You want to call the police on the kid, fine. But to shoot and kill him before any inquiry or any real manifestation of a threat is a crime, it is not Standing Your Ground.
It is you that needs to move on! Stand you're ground is meant to protect those who are under threat, second guess all you want, the law works! It's easy to say none were not threatened, even when you're head is being bounced on the sidewalk! I would be willing to bet those who were taking advantage of others and got dead as a result of poor decisions,wish they could get a do over! Reality is forever, Baby !
First...bull. The issue about the Muslims being attacked was disproved long time ago. The very fact that these Muslims was at the vehicle gives credit to the defense statement. And if anything only proves a reason to say what ever they need to to help defend themselves. Is acceptable to get the point or lesson across. Since this is also a 'teachable moment'. And seems to be the only thing they understand. Because obviously all the Liberal sex education only made things worse.
JRook...You must live a very protected life. - And it is obvious you have never been in a real your life or theirs. Or protect yourself until they stop aggression. Unless you have just given up to who ever...every single time. But at some point. Your=e will never be able to give enough.
The old saying about the streets being a jungle and war zone is true. Take your rose colored glasses off.
You missed the part where they put their hands on her. I would have ripped the one guys arm off and used it to beat the other one with.
Understand this. People are getting tired of sacrificing their lives and their future. SO people like you can arm chair quarter back and feel good about themselves as others lives are at risk.
The bottom line is. The Muslim...or who ever. They had zero right to even be talking to another person to begin with. And it is funny that you don't see the feminist, the women, the Liberals or others coming to the defense of the women. You know why. Because we have learned in the last month that the women, the feminist, the LGBT community take a back seat to the Muslims in the picking order. Especially when it comes to Obama, to the Liberals, and to the media.
You also forgot this was one person against many. Hence in order to stop something to have to disable one or both of the assaulting people from doing any more damage.
But remember this...until you actually put your life on the line for what you believe. Any opinion seems bogus.
P.S... this is going from someone who has been physically attacked at home. And no more compassion for criminals or the people doing the attacks anymore. But it i funny you never mentioned or defended the women from the 'sexual harassment' she was receiving. ...why is that. Funny how the liberal mind tries to 'NOT' defend their stands of something when confronted with another false premise.
But here is your false premise. You are assuming we live in a “civilized society”. The liberals have been regression the mental and emotionally level of society for a long time.
Also…the civil society is bogus. Only the tools and technology has changed. Just because a cave man can watch tv, and operate a cell phone, and cut their hair. Doesn’t mean they are civilized.
Also…when dealing with some people from 3rd world countries, or from battle torn areas, or older ways of doing things. They are acting civilized.
Remember…that to a very rich person, and a person that has been groomed from birth to be a King for example. You would seem to be ‘not civilized’ ad a cave person to them.
And remember to ISIS…being civilized is cutting peoples heads off. The person left standing in the end is the civilized person. And some people use the legal system to fight with. But the violence and result is still the same.
Only people that can't physically defend themselves are the ones who bring up civilized. As they require others to do the physical abuse.
Poor old JRook the stupid still flows strong from this one.
nonsense, the beating was more than appropriate, it was 2 against 1 first of all, they were assaulting his girl, in some parts of the country thats a disqualification of your rights. they should have stopped resisting faster.
the hate crime was the assault on the girl, after that it was passionate justice.
You just went full retard. NEVER go full retard!
You pull this crap where I live, you don't get a beating, you get shot.
The law and common sense disagree with your mental abortion of a screed.
OK, in order:
You accept what the thugs say because they would never lie and admit they were molesting the girl. Remember, it wasn't just the victims who said they were groping her, but MULTIPLE other witnesses that heard her.
In a 'civilized society' you don’t arrest someone for protecting his people. You want someone to be calm and solicitous when two adult males are attacking your loved one? And you assume they might run, but you've never been in a L/D fight with two unknowns on a deserted site with no support. Beating them to the extent he did is both justified and legal in the US.
I support SYG shootings of your dozen or so completely "innocent" individuals in FL in the commission of assorted crimes. Your drunk (stupid) college kid who attempted B&E earned that load of shot, persisting AFTER being warned off.
In the real world, an "inquiry or any real manifestation" standard will get you and your's dead.
You whine about the "Stand Your Ground" deaths, calling some "innocent", but SYG saves lives of far too many each year for me to sweat a few unconvicted criminals and lethally stupid.
Mr. Rook is the official contrary of the board! You say sky blue he says green! When you live in your basement nekid and afraid, you get that way out of boredom!! LOL

If the term evangelical the description refers to evangelical christian then there is no arguement, he can’t be. Because if you claim to be a christian then you have no choice then to accept the bible as the word of god and follow it. Its really that simple and not up for discussion or negotiation. If you don’t want to follow the fundamental text of the christian faith then choose another name for your religion. Its similar to gay individuals who want to change the definition of marriage, you can say all you want but the word has an accepted definition and it isn’t the union between two men or two women. It is beyond belief to me how the ME generation really believes it is all about them and therefor their perspective on things somehow has relevance beyond themselves. The absurd arrogance of ME generation christians to believe and publicly state that they are “more” christian than their parents because they “accepted” JC as their personal savior. As though their parents didn’t do essentially the same thing 1,000 times in their lives through any number of church prayers. This country is going down the tubes because we have an increasing number of selfish individuals who place their own ideology, their own beliefs and their own wants and needs above their community, above their country and above humanities. And rather than be the superior people they think they are, they are nothing more than selfish brats.
JRook, funny but there are loads of evangelicals who got divorced. They still claim the title.
But do Christians who get divorced show pride in being divorced? Do they identify as a devorsee wherever they go. Divorce is a sin, no doubt. But just because you have been divorced doesn't mean you're proud of it or identify with it. That is the difference.
@crowd: The Bible says that to divorce and remarry is to be committing adultery. So every Christian you know that is remarried is actively engaging in sin every morning when they wake, and every night when they go to bed. It's the same sin you remind every 'active' homosexual about, yet for this sin you just seem to sweep it aside. What's it like to be a cafeterian Christian? Picking and choosing your way through life all the while judging others, I want to know. Please tell us. What's the a-la-carte special today?

“Maybe the reason the Trumpbots are losing jobs to China is they suck at math.” Check the stats champ, the states where the kids suck at math are the same one’s where the “enlightened” legislators care more about injecting creationism into the curriculum rather than beefing up math. I am one of the independents who voted in the republican primary to insure a sociopath like cruz did not get the nomination. If you think cruz should hold any federal office, then you champ suck at choosing leaders.

“Kitty, you and Trump supporters are more dangerous to this country than ISIS.” Ah yes another great example of a group who claims not to be full of hate and not the group that is dividing this country. Leave the attention getting lines for Ann Coulter and the distant wannabee dana loesch. At least fake being educated by saying semi-educated things. If you really believe the large corporations and wealthy give a crap about conservative or liberal then you are so far from understanding what has really brought this country to where it is that it is sad. Since the mid 1980′s its only been about money and unfortunately as witnessed by the criminal acts that brought us the bank bailouts, its been about how much you have and not how you got it. We have the best politicians money can buy on both sides of the isle and the same large corporations and wealthy own all of them.

“I like Ted, he’s fine,” Trump said. “I don’t need his endorsement. If he gives it to me, I will not accept it.” This is a great example where Trump needs to table his ego and let the issue be what it was. Now he appears as petty and vindictive as Cruz…. which is not how you differentiate yourself and not how you make it about cruz.
No he is entirely correct when he says Cruz' endorsement is something he needs. A liar and a pledge breaker wont help. Bahahaahaahaahahaah
Can you please quote parts of the speech where Cruz whined?
I heard him congratulate Trump. He talked about Obama and Hilary being bad for the country. He talked about the police being shot down. He told people to vote in November. Who was he asking us to vote for? I would love to know what he said that was whining.
[-6] July 22, 2016 at 11:44am
kate let’s be clear about this… you are actually using your companies bias against Trump, primarily due tot he fact his campaign has not paid you for supportive posts, to get cheap bait clicks. Pretty sad, pretty sad and a clear indication of how low journalism has become.

Probably, but no more than individuals who claim that blacks support the democratic party because of “social” giveaway programs like food stamps, which by the way are lobbied for by large food producers and food suppliers, not the poor. Why, because they get to sell $50 billion in food that would otherwise cause an over supply and drive prices down. It is interesting that hospitals, physicians and pharmaceutical companies accept lower payments for Medicaid patients, but food stamps do not carry a discount. Clearly, that is not something the food stamp recipients lobbied for. Follow the money people and tak10 minutes to actually understand who gets the lion share of federal spending. And its not the poor.
Are you saying that without food stamps the average food stamp user would spend $1000 less per year on food? (47 million receiving assistance divided by 50 billion dollars in food). So without free milk, eggs and cheese, these people would actually spend three dollars less per day at McDonalds?
Yes, there are many scams by corporations as well. But food stamps are real dollars taken from real tax payers.
As for lobbying for food stamps, once they are on the government teat and you can bet they aren’t trying to let go.
Yes, we spend hundreds of billions internationally where we may not need to.
Yes, the federal government has grown exponentially and now tax payers have to pay for federal jobs (unconstitutional, non production, tax eating jobs).
Yes, there is pork spending by most politicians to pander to their constituents.
But if you are trying to tell us that those who are able and are on welfare and food stamps at the expense of the rest of us don’t lobby for that continued sustenance, you can sell that crap elsewhere. We aren't buying it.
Where were you educated at? The school of moronic indoctrination?
No, he is saying that the companies are essentially overcharging the government & taxpayers. By not selling the food at a discount, they are pocketing extra millions of your (tax) money.
Re: if you are trying to tell us that those who are able and are on welfare and food stamps at the expense of the rest of us don’t lobby for that continued sustenance, you can sell that crap elsewhere. We aren’t buying it.
The corporation's lobbyists are better funded, can offer more incentives and cooperation, are better organised...
Sure the welfare Q. are voting their food stamps, but since when does DC really care about voters? If push becomes shove the masses will be expendable and we all know it. The Elites will protect themselves and those like them or useful to them. Anyone else will be left to fend for themselves... or shot putting down the riots or some such.
So, J Rookie, tell us why blacks support the Dem party like lemmings. What other races exhibit that behavior? Some of the worst cities in America have been run by Dems for decades and blacks still vote Dem.
Apparantly no intellectual curiosity. Or is it the constant money train?

Easy one, good shoot. But this type of story doesn’t change the facts of any situation where the treatment or shooting of suspects is uncalled for and unjustified. And to present a post like this or interpret it as providing any rational to view unjustified treatment or shooting of a CITIZEN is ignorant at best.
No just us! No peas! No just us, no peas!
Sorry Junior, you were saying..?
JR : A two-gunned citizen ?!
The purpose of this video is to show that THIS incident was a good shoot. Please stop "stirring the pot" as things are bad enough already.
JROOK, no one is defending bad police shootings. The issue is that those shootings are not all against blacks and are not "epidemic". The problem is that this shooting, no matter how clearly it was justified, will be included in the numbers of police shooting blacks and then used as propaganda.
I do not like cops but they have a right to defend themselves just like everyone else.

Ok well whatever drug your on should be reduced by at least 50%. There is no conspiracy to change fox news into a left wing news outlet and for the real morons in the room, media companies could care less about ideology, deeply held beliefs or bias. They are in the media business to make money. And fox news knew it could not compete head up with the established networks, so it adopted a conservative bias to serve a growing market segment. Seriously, if you actually believe that Ann Coulter, Rush, GB, etc. wouldn’t change their bias and tone if their ratings and sponsors demanded a change you are either delusional beyond hope or again overdosing. Its about $$ pure and simple.
