    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.

    No all this is, is a post written by a small mind seeking bait clicks and comments from smaller minds.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    “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.

    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.

    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.

    “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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
