Here’s what’s in it. All remaining blue collar jobs, & many white collar jobs will now move overseas, and if you are not employed as a Wall Street investment banker, lawyer, or useless government bureaucrat, you’re screwed. I’m now charging $ 750,000 for 20 minutes of advice. Hey, it worked for clinton.

Our last avenue of peace was lost when they figured out how to flip votes & rig the elections.

Welcome to the party, some of us have been saying that for a number of years. Better late than never.

CatB, Oh, they know how p!$$ed we are all right, & they know how even more p!$$ed we will be when we find out what’s in the trade deal. They don’t care! They aren’t afraid of us. They’ll do something we like & we’ll calm down for awhile. They know how to play us. Some of us fall for it every time. If Cruz voted for this, I’m done with him, & I only recently decided to support him. I’ll have to go with Dana Carvey…er…I mean…Rand Paul, I guess.

Kenny, what they are cooking up has nothing to do with what you are saying. This trade deal is the final chapter in the “destroy America’s economy” game. Nafta & Gatt did what they wanted (destroy manufacturing), but there are still some of those pesky Americans still working in the private sector. So, here we are. Trust me on this, this trade deal is bad, very bad. I don’t have to see it to know that. The real unemployment number is somewhere around 20-25%. If this happens, & it will, 5 -10 years from now, real unemployment might hit 40 to 50 %. The regime has stomped on the gas, & it’s going to get bad, real bad. More is on the way.
May 23, 2015 at 6:28pm
Yes, the US Chamber of Commerce wants this to pass. It will put the capper on the economy. Still have a job related to manufacturing? Kiss it goodbye.
Question. It is constitutional to pass a bill that is classified, so as not to reveal it to the people? In other words, don’t we have a right to see any bill under consideration by the house or senate?
 May 23, 2015 at 5:56pm
@ pure, they’re starting to figure it out, but they’ll still deny it. Nobody will believe that something that big could ever happen. Well, it did, it is ongoing, & it’s gonna get a lot worse. They keep dangling these false heroes before us so we won’t revolt. I’ll say it again, we won’t save our country via the ballot box.

The part of your post that really stood out is, “anyone living in the home was a registered gun owner.” That information is not supposed to be available to LE.
 May 21, 2015 at 5:50pm
If cops want to ensure they make it home safely, why don’t they just stay in the station? News flash. Nobody has a guarantee of getting home safely. Priority number 1 for every cop, every day is to make sure he protects the constitutional rights of every citizen he comes into contact with, not to use overwhelming force so he “goes home safely.” Cops sign up for the job, they know the risks going in. And, BTW, a construction worker has a far more dangerous job. So, “your” pot dealer might have a gun? Big deal, so does every cop.

or you just get off on the power.
May 21, 2015 at 5:34pm
yes they do, but no more than anybody else’s life.
May 21, 2015 at 5:31pm
You’re exactly right. That’s why we have to de-militarize the police. SWAT should be limited to 1 team per county, & they should only be used for specific situations where necessary. And no, picking up some punk crack dealer with a 9mm isn’t a good enough reason. Also, every department should have a citizen review board with the overriding authority to stop training & procedures that violate the constitution and or community standards.
Didn't Homer Simpson change his name to Max Power? And the judge said, "I'm letting you change it to Max Power because it's the only request you spelled right". Then Homer says..."I got it from a hair dryer."
May 20, 2015 at 9:59pm
You’re right. Most cops are pretty good guys, but the ratio is changing rapidly I’m afraid. I have problems with the current training and militarization, more than most personnel.
May 20, 2015 at 9:49pm
And just how many times have police been bombed” How many gang bangers use “heavy weapons?” What are the odds of any policeman coming up against that type of scenario? Most cops today work in suburbs where the most dangerous situation is a domestic call. An MRAP won’t help with that. You don’t need military gear to patrol the burbs. The average citizen in America is far more likely to be killed or injured by police than by a “heavily armed” housewife in her SUV on her way to the beauty parlor. Check the stats on no knock raids. They do not help your argument. OK, inner cities, you may have somewhat of a point. That’s a different situation. I’m OK with a 12 gauge in the trunk, and an AR-15 in the Sergent’s trunk. need more? That’s what radios are for. Still don’t need a Bearcat. Got a riot going on? THEN you may need a Bearcat! My argument is for the typical, everyday LE environment out here in real America, where I might add, people like the police & aren’t trying to hurt them. https://www.vox.com/2014/10/29/7083371/swat-no-knock-raids-police-killed-civilians-dangerous-work-drugs

@ RaydocX, right you are, however, I advise against buying body armor on ebay. Your purchase is on record. You can buy military grade BA at gun shows cheaper than ebay anyway. Pay cash, and no one knows you have it. Be advised, a type III vest w\ plates is really, really heavy, only good for static location. For moving around, go with plates and carriers.

I would agree with you if this were, say, 1980. She wouldn’t even be a possibility. Heck, bubba couldn’t win back then either. Bush I is when the country turned stupid.
 May 20, 2015 at 8:08pm
No cheating going on. clinton Arkansas bodyguards have long stated that the clintons had an open marriage, & there were many swapping parties.
 May 20, 2015 at 8:05pm
@ shogun459, Winner, winner, chicken dinner! There was probably a deal, clinton covers for obola, & she gets to use the flippin’ “machine.”
Our country can no longer be fixed by use of the ballot box.
 May 18, 2015 at 8:44pm
@ thegoldman, people keep using the word felony. THE LAW HAS CHANGED! See my posts above. Felony has nothing to do with this anymore! It’s ANY OFFENSE that has the possibility of a 1 year sentence! And you only have to be indicted, not convicted!
