Climbing the ladder is near impossible because Uncle Sam is at the top with a fire hose trying to knock anyone off the ladder that tries to climb it. The writer generalizes because he’s a republican and so disregards the fact that republicans are socialists too. The wealthy(incredibly both republican and democrat politicians tend to be 1%ers) stand on the platform encouraging Uncle Sam to increase the pressure because they fear being pushed off by competition or innovation. They encourage in the form of payment which Uncle Sam is happy to take. Almost every self made person I ever met while I was working said they could have never done it under todays regulations. Every small business I ever worked for saw the increased cost of regulation as the biggest hurdle to expanding. The last several years have seen a trend never before seen in America. More businesses are closing every day than starting. Entrepreneurship is what made America great and it is dying and the government is killing it. Government only has the power to take. It takes wealth through tax and liberty through law. If you think your getting something then your not paying attention. A government dependent is a slave to government. If you think your liberty has no value then go sell it to Greece, stop trying to steal mine.

Savage, field, swinging. Shall we just say the English language is racist and outlaw it? I have no sympathy for the solon as I love seeing statists taste their own medicine but are there no adults present anymore? I’m so glad I live far away from any major population centers. There is something wrong with city folk. It must be in the water.

It’s amazing our prisons aren’t empty considering our laws are so numerous and complex it’s nearly impossible to tell if they’ve even been broken, let alone who did it. It’s enough to make one believe or legal system is just another tool our government uses to further oppress the population and really has nothing to do with justice at all. Why doesn’t the media ever call out the government for not being able to understand or implement the very laws they pass?
Because this is socialist America. Media is just a strong arm. Socialists want tyranny well socialism is great way to give them what they want.

When Is It ‘Victim Blaming’ And When Is It ‘Common Sense’?
It’s victim blaming when you place blame on the person who didn’t break the law. That is common sense. See how easy that was?

A private company cannot force me to work for them or use their product. The government can and does. Private companies have no power in a truly capitalist society as socialist like to imply. It is only thru collusion with government(socialism) that companies attain this power. Otherwise they lose their employees and their customers. Most of the evil “Wall Street” socialists like to blame their problems on would be bankrupt and nonexistent had it not been for the socialist “to big to fail” policy. Our gestapo police force is the result of the socialist republicans war on drugs(another socialist program). The war on poverty(a democrat pet program) has made climbing the economic ladder like climbing a real ladder with Uncle Sam at the top hitting you with a fire hose. The author may prefer the republican socialist party but libertarians want “none of the above”. Government grows at the expense of liberty. Tax revenue grows at the expense of personal wealth and laws take liberty. Totalitarianism is the natural and obvious conclusion of an ever growing government. Republicans are socialists too. The government can’t solve your problems but it can and will take your stuff and your liberty. If one looks up the word slave in the dictionary it becomes obvious how our government views us. Slavery only requires obedience not ownership.

Is that why the democrat congress trashed the economy in 08?

It’s because Fed-Ex employees do their job. That’s why the private sector always performs better. It’s called accountability, something non-existent in government unless you’re really low level, then you might be a scapegoat.
know : Agree . Dropped off a package at Federal yesterday . A more pleasant experience than going to the government ( mis ) managed post office !

Obviously at least one life could be saved by outlawing baseball. Since that is the litmus test for prohibition in America I’m sure everyone would agree this madness must stop. Outlaw baseball today, save a life tomorrow.
"baseball" is too specific.
we need to outlaws all balls!
wait a second... GOP! stop! stop!
I've often wondered, why with today's construction of huge sports fields with high upper decks, that they never bothered to put up nets around them to stop incidents like this from happening.
Just a simple 4-5 ft wide net before the edge of the bottom row seats of the upper decks. This won't be the last time somebody falls from the upper deck and dies from it.
This was baseball and we have hand egg ball, isn't there basket ball too? What's with the ball games, aren't those what kids do? http://www.promotocross.com/mx/home
since democrats are so stupid and think everyone is as
dumb as them,
I expect democrats/ESPN to start banning baseball real soon.

I’m with you. Whatever fixes things. Both paths are an uphill climb. I just don’t think prying the establishment out of their trenches would be easier than building anew right on top of them. I could be wrong though, wouldn’t be the first time. I only care if the country survives though I’ve no concern for the GOP.

Now that the word is out the local authorities will show up wanting to see his permits.

While the grand jury may use outside experts, they use their own not ones paid for by the accused. I stand by my statement that this is a job for a grand jury not the press and certainly not a company hired by the accused. In fact the accused has no place at the table, the DA must present enough evidence to accuse. Defense testimony isn’t even presented.

Um… they’ve already lost to one twice.

“Republicans are the party of limited government.”
Actually until you start acting like it , no you are not. Republicans fear a shut down for exactly the same reason democrats do. It illustrates how useless government truly is in our day to day lives. The republicans blow every opportunity they get simply because they’re committed to big not limited government. They lie to get elected just like democrats. What 2014 campaign promise has been kept? Any?
This scenario relies entirely on the wholly baseless assumption that congressional Republicans have any balls at all. What can you possibly point to in the past that would lead you to this absolutely ridiculous conclusion?
 August 28, 2015 at 4:56pm
What if we just shut it down because it’s grossly irresponsible with our money. A so called shutdown really only amounts to a small reduction anyway. Last time the government spent more shutting down tourist attractions than they cost to operate. How much more proof do we need that government isn’t competent enough to handle money?
 August 28, 2015 at 4:33pm
The bully you speak of is the government you wish to(and have) create. A government that will hurt you and take your stuff because you smoke a joint is a bit more totalitarian than libertarians are willing to tolerate. It’s about liberty and libertarians understand that you can’t trade it for security.
August 28, 2015 at 4:10pm
The GOP embracing a libertarian is no more realistic than the democrats embracing one. The GOP is all about big government which leaves little liberty. Tough to find any common ground there. If you put a good apple in a bushel of rotten ones you will only get another rotten apple. What ails the republican party can’t be fixed because the core is rotten not broken.

People liked what Obama was saying in 08 too. Once elected however Obama relived his past and disregarded everything he said. Trump is the rights Obama. They’re going to elect him on the emotion of his words and completely disregard who he has bean his entire life. I guess we’ll just have to pray Trump(unlike Obama) is sincere. Deadlocking government is the best we can do for now anyway.

“Though the cause of the violent assault isn’t entirely clear”
What isn’t clear? I’ll bet it would be clear if the races were reversed.
But when do you ever see videos like that where the races are reversed?
Great post... But hang on... Wait... You don't see it? She might work there. Then this is nothing more than you every day work place violence. Move along... The leftist media will tell you what they want you to believe. ~sarc
I'm sure that our fearless leader will take a break from his busy golf schedule and condemn this behavior.....haahahahahahahahhahahahahhaahahhahahahahhaahahhahaha!
I'm confused why this wasn't reported to the police.
She had White Privilege. Nuff said...
Just understand Blaze. Your group protection policies are part of why this violence occurs.
Clearly the cause is PTSD, or Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder. Proper diagnosis of PTSD can be made if 3 of the following 5 criteria are met:
1) Delusions about contemporary white people being somehow responsible for slavery that occurred hundreds of years ago;
2) Denial of the fact that black people owned white slaves in the past;
3) Sycophantic worship of black charlatans;
4) Extreme envy of anyone who has worked hard to get ahead in life;
5) Profound hatred of people who pay the taxes that fund your welfare.
Currently, the only treatment available is prison.
i won't watch - pretty obvious the violence and profanity that's coming.
i don't need to let them into my lovely sunny afternoon watching the hummingbirds feed. gave everybody the afternoon off - "free friday". just too beautiful a day to be inside all day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said "who can but look at the sky and deny the existence of God?"
these creature of the night avoid the light of the summer sun - too bad, it soothes the soul.
ooops - am i allowed to say "soul"?
Where is the crime? The white woman did not belong in a black hood, and according to many in the black klan, she deserved to be beaten for her crime. Obviously not a hate crime by the thugs, only social justice for the real crime of white privilege. Imam Farrakhan would approve.
Was that Obama grandmother?
She was always nervous around black men.
For all the people saying unarmed assailants don't pose a potential threat to life....watch the video. A more well placed stomp (to the trachea for example) could absolutely be fatal. This is why I'm a CCW permit holder and carrier.
Note to hoodlums: Try that with me and you will get a bullet in the face.
How can people stand by and do nothing.
For Gods sake.
obama has the pot boiling at this rate it won't be long before the lid blows off, I think its in his plans.
Brave man, that hood rat. Punching a woman, then stomping her head. I tell you if that were my daughter, I'd get a measure of revenge...
This is one of the reasons our founding fathers insisted on the 2d Amendment;
The government is the other.
“For Lowe, he said the video should be watched by everyone to show “what not to do” and “see what it shouldn’t look like.”
Like most civilized people don’t already know that is “what not to do”?
What are they going to do? Screen it in the local black schools during assemblies for a visual lesson on how not to treat your local white people, as opposed to what your momma and nomad daddy, and all your neighborhood mentors teach you to think about white people, as being your oppressor and authors of all your ills?
And that’s if the kids are even present at school, that is if they’re not sleeping off drug induced stupors, and all night roaming sessions.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Racism? Evil? Maybe its all the same.

This will probably hurt workers in the end. Placing responsibility on the parent company will likely cause the parent companies to take more policy control. Now workers wages(among other things) will be set by an untouchable corporate executive instead of the franchise owner. How do ask for a raise from someone who you don’t know a thousand miles away with no number? It will simply create more centralized control in this business model. One need only look at government to see how well more centralization works out.
 August 28, 2015 at 12:22pm
It’s easier for the government to micromanage a handful of megacorps than millions of small companies. It’s by design.
