    He had pot in his system. Maybe that affected his decision making.

    This was not a verdict. It was a decision about evidence and whether to indict to go to trial, where verdicts are handed down.

    Having now read this, I might agree with the grand jury, but I disagree with Officer Wilson’s actions. Since he had called for backup, instead of taking the stance that he was “trapped” in his car with a large, strong man outside, he had the larger car, and he should have driven to the side, keeping the on-foot suspect in sight, called back in and reported what happened, and waited for backup. I believe most officers would have taken this action. No shooting nor death was warranted under these circumstances. The penalty for robbery or taunting an officer is not death.

    As soon as I started reading this, the Rudyard Kipling poem came to mind – Mike Rowe fits it!

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:…

    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools:…

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run -
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!

    Is there anyone who really thinks if Hillary weren’t married to Bill, we’d not even know her name, much less would she have ever held public office?
    I think anyone voting for her is probably just wanting Bill back and that’s the only way to legally get him.
    And a few militant feminists.

    I’d hand it to my Marine son. Marines know 23 ways to kill a guy with their bare hands. They could rip that backbone out of there in 2 seconds flat.

    I arrived at school for an early rehearsal the other day before anyone else. I met a teeming solid mass of black birds covering the entire parking lot.. Such is November in Central Texas. Watching them scatter and take off as I drove in was an amazing sight!

    Such is the way of a private business – and every person’s choice.

    Thank you for the warning. I have trouble hearing anything. I had planned to go, but now I won’t, since it would be even more frustrating.

    You are an insult to ewoks everywhere.

    When will people learn to not tweet everything that crosses their mind? I don’t believe in the thought police, but part of maturity is knowing when to take the opportunity to shut up! She should be fired – if they fired the Duncanville teacher, they should fire this one. Good judgment is part of the job.

    1 sentence comment. 8 sentence criticism. Who’s into dire extremes?

    So now we’ve heard O tell a Hispanic group to punish their enemies in the voting booth. Here also they mention punishing. I’ve NEVER heard a Conservative talk about punishing their political opposition. Why don’t they, instead of thinking punish all the time, get some good ideas of their own that actually help America and Americans? We see where their priorities are. Alinsky – ends justify the means. Say anything. Do anything. The opposition should die.

    I disagree. I believe every charity has to advertise. People will give more if they see how their donated dollars are spent. I think to not want to know is not prudent. If I see good being done, help being given, with proof that 100% of my donation goes to the help, that’s the organization I’ll give my money to.

    I think it was his way of apologizing for the weakness caused by the illness – missing some broadcasts. Personally, I only see him working his backside off. He does more deathly ill than I’ve done in my whole life well.

    That’s ok – we got ya covered.

    That would be encroaching on their territory. They believe there is a finite number of pieces in the pie – and they want them for themselves, while crying they want more for the poor, the children. It’s all about their power. That’s their true obsession. Someone else has money. They want it. And they’ll say anything to get it, while maybe giving a pittance to the poor.

    Spending all day searching the internet to spin the obvious truth to fit your side’s lies is HARD work! (And yelling for mom to bring you some more potato chips.)

    Oh…did Mike say something? I was distracted cause he’s just so doggone good looking! (Especially covered in the remnants of working hard). A smart, good looking man who works all day, even when the job is difficult. What more could a woman want!

    They’re the ONLY ones who voted for it. They own it with the stupidity name. Not even ONE Republican voted for it – not even the rinos.
