    If 3 or 4 officers cannot subdue an unarmed suspect without punching them or kicking them, then they all should be removed from duty for being physically unable to perform the job duties. Just because your are a cop does not give you get to elevate the level of violence in the situation.

    “It’s no secret that Democratic candidates up for re-election this year have been running from being associated with President Obama amid his anemic approval numbers.” FACTS – PRESIDENT APPROVAL rating 41.5% CONGRESS APPROVAL rating 14%. So its no secret that Republicans and Tea People don’t want to talk about the loud mouth no shows in Congress who all deserve to be shown the door.

    “But a spokesman for Hunter’s re-election campaign told TheBlaze a question of “stolen valor” cuts deep, especially in military community.” Ah so Hunter praises for his service and let’s his spokesman call him out on. Trying to cover both sides of the issue seems rather cowardly to me. And of course Hunter has never done anything in his life that he regrets.

    And exactly where is the proof there is anything in these emails related to Fast & Furious other than a statement from Judicial Watch President, an organization which is fueled by coming up with controversial government actions ? So no reason to believe they might not exaggerate a bit to get more eyeballs to their site. The fact that there was a subpoena for Holder’s emails from a particular time period does not mean these have anything to do with the program. Not surprising that an purposely inaccurate and inflammatory post would be referenced and repeated here.

    “Interventions for reducing lead exposure in firing ranges include using lead-free bullets, improving ventilation and using wet mopping or high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuuming to clean,” So the only thing standing between making ranges as safe as possible from lead contamination is greed, ignorance or a combination of both. Or is lead poisoning also part of the Second Amendment right?

    “Despite a high percentage of violations, the Susan Recce with the National Rifle Association told the Times “the issue of lead problems for indoor ranges is extremely rare.” Always can depend on an industry spokesperson who works for the gun manufacturers by way of the NRA…. check their funding sources and percentages and you’ll understand the reference.

    And by the way for the history revisionists here, there has been healthy eating resources and instruction in schools since the 1950′s so why do you fall for this complete BS that it is somehow obma socialism that drives a concern for kids well being.

    @Vision Harry…. yep no doubt we should just outsource school cafeterias to McDonalds. Why would anyone want to encourage their kids to eat a healthy balanced diet. Geez people used to praise Grandma when she instructed her daughter that her grandchildren would begin eating healthier foods if they became hungry enough. But similar to many inner city kids who suffer from a void in terms of a parental guidance and influence, kids are allowed to eat so much crap in the form of cheap calories that they have become the most well feed, nutritionally starving generation. But hey just give them another hot dog and can of coke.

    So essentially the Dept. of Agriculture is providing young kids who’s parents are clueless and eat the typical unhealthy american diet a version of the app that intelligent college students and intelligent young, middle aged and older adults download to their phones to manage what they eat along with their routine exercise. Good thing that pete unearthed this insidious conspiracy. What next, the Dept. of Education might fund programs that educate kids about the misuse of alcohol and other recreational drugs.

    The leaked document is dated October, 2014 and was provided by a trusted federal agent who did so on the condition of anonymity. Ok for those who might not realize it there has probably been one of these memos every month since 9/11 covering any number of groups. Remember the colored threat levels? And if this was actually leaked by a trusted federal agent he should be fired immediately as he is no longer trustworthy and should be charged with a crime. As for most of the the comments here tying the leak of a information which is rather obvious to the PRESIDENT somehow, I’d say you really should get back on your paranoia medicine.

    This is the type of ignorant attitudes and behavior that has been fueled by those in congress and the media who have sought to gain eyeballs by blowing the ebola threat in the US out of proportion. Its as ignorant as the individuals who canceled their flights on Frontier Airlines. I don’t hear allot of the radio folks and congressmen saying much about how well it has been handled, other than some stupid mistakes in this Texas hospital. But even with their mistakes it is doubtful that there is ANY chance of coming down with ebola by going there. It is one thing to be anti-science. It is another thing to allow such a mindset and a corresponding complete ignorance of science and medical research to influence your coverage of the story and contribute to a collective ignorance.

    “By censoring our children from Christianity or any other religious belief, you are not allowing them to learn to live in a diverse setting and to respect other beliefs,” Seriously, how stupid a statement is this. How does singling out a specific religious holiday censoring other religious belief. I experienced multiple Jewish families who went on vacation during the Winter Break (which is what most colleges call it) so they did not have to be inundated with Christmas and christian symbols at school, in the police station, municipal building. So no at no time did centering everything on Christmas make the Jewish families feel included. There has been nothing done to limit or eliminate individuals from celebrating their religious beliefs at home, in their church, etc. and frankly christians would be well served to start actually focusing on the religious aspect of the holiday and stop pretending the Madison Ave. lights and conspicuous consumption have anything to do with it. There is nothing lamer than individuals who haven’t stepped foot in a church for 10 years, live their life in a constant state of sin and blasphemy winning about their religious beliefs being attacked. Cause the obvious question is what religious beliefs?

    The tax rate is not the problem, it is the loopholes and unethical but legal strategies they have paid congress to enact that brings down their effective tax rates to half of what is reported. For example, who would have ever thought someone who kept their money offshore to avoid paying taxes would be stupid enough to run for President. Actually, if you want confirmation on the two biggest issues facing the US economy, 1) concentration of wealth and 2) low wages read the report by Salamon Bros., the investment bankers who correctly indicate that it is demand which drives our economy and CREATES jobs, not the wealthy or small business owners. And when the middle class and majority of workers are underpaid, while the 1% accumulates more wealth they can’t spend, they economy slows down. Why do you think it grew so much during the post WWII period. Not because the wealthy created jobs for the sake of creating them. It was because auto workers, steel workers, factory workers were paid enough to buy things, buy a house, buy a car and send their kids to college. Today their pay is decimated by excise taxes, sales taxes, government fees, real estate taxes, etc. while income taxes are reduced in a manner that only benefits the wealthy. Remember when parks were free, remember when there wasn’t .75 to $1 of taxes on gasoline, remember when it didn’t cost $45 to register your car. Remember when states paid 70% of the cost of higher education instead of 20% or less today.

    This is a rather simple situation to analyze. billy makes a point of identifying them as Christian Chapel owners. Purposely wording it to appear as though the chapel is a christian one. Well if that is the case then I’m sure they haven’t taken the money and married any Jewish, muslim, budist or atheist couples in their chapel. After all any one of those groups hold relifious views that are in stark contrast to those of our christian victims here. But of course if they did then this is just another made up government harassment story. This guy and his wife are not christian ministers, they are for profit justices of the peace.

    Ah so when a Republican clown says that women’s bodies have a way of preventing pregnancy when they are getting raped, that is the honesty your looking for…? Or perhaps when Bush and Cheney don’t want to admit that the chemical weapons that were found in Iraq came from the US? Or is it when Cruz pretends he knows something about public health by calling for travel bans, when he should be visiting the hospital in Texas and finding out why they can’t follow protocols? Is that the type of honesty your looking for? She answered that she agrees with some of his policies and not with others. I know this is tough to grasp, but governing the country is a tad bit more complex than a simple question like 100% background checks for gun purchases. I know of countless people who purchased hand guns at gun fairs, both above and below the table, with hollow point bullets. No background check, no questions, no concern for the community.

    Perhaps but Independents can as we aer the only voting block that votes based on rational thought and “senator Scott Brown, who has criticized the Democrat for voting with Obama.” using this as a campaign pitch just shows how he has nothing to offer other than something a lame as this. Let’s remember that the REPUBLICAN Congress has the lowest approval rating in the history of the country. So how’s about asking people why they voted for the idiot candidates?

    “Porn Again Christian” speaking series to share her story and testimony…. and no chance her and her husband and not “cashing” in on her career again by charging for their story of redemption. Hey she admitted she made money for not doing very much before. Why would that change.

    “1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted” This statistic which is sometimes quoted as 1 in 4 is one of the great examples of the phrase “statistics don’t lie, liars use statistics”. So rather than define what they mean by sexual assault which might include a woman deservedly being called a B@@th, they state a statistic like this and then quickly revert to the word rape, as though the two are equivalent. Not that any are reasonable or acceptable, but inflating statistics to raise money or further a cause is unethical at best and is indicative of a manipulative and dishonest person.

    Come on brainz the universe and earth were created 6,000-8,000 years ago along with life. The fact that there is light visible from over 10 billion (that’s with a B) light years away. But of course that’s when you get the glassy eyed look and the classic phrase., “Youd on’t think God could have not put that light here for us to see while he was creating the universe?” Now how can you doubt such scientific based logic?
