    Baltimore is Detroit’s sister city in corruption and crime. Only difference is that the bad guys are better shots in
    Baltimore, check out the stats.

    This takes “entitlement society” to a whole new level.

    I would not vote for Mr. Trump since there are more gifted candidates. However, Mr. Beck and Trump bashers are off base when they focus on his delivery style. Mr. Trump is well aware that he most likely would not win the GOP nomination, let alone the presidency. He is in it to keep the the GOP establishment honest. He knows the players and fears the eventual anointing of Jeb Bush or other squishy type. Listen to Rudolf Guliani. Trump is a patriot and is spending his own capital in crusade like fashion. Pushing 70 years of age, he does not need the aggravation of the presidency. He is providing flack cover for the likes of Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, and others who the GOP establishment (and Dems) would like to smash. I have fought these battles at the grass roots levels for years. The nomination and electioneering process is rigged by both the GOP and the Dems. It takes someone with uncommon courage and gravitas to jump in and mix things up for the betterment of the process and the country. When he leaves the race (he will not run as an independent for obvious reasons), he will turn over his support and votes to a deserving non-establishment candidate like a Cruz. He is taking it on the chin intentionally to buy time and help set the stage for the others. He realizes that the process is being shortened (like elimination of the Iowa Straw Poll, etc.) and he is trying to keep the doors open. Mr. Trump is doing what he thinks is right and what he can do.

    Fox moderators for the 9:00 GOP last night were rank, petty, CNN/MSNBC-like. This was not a debate it was a TABLOID DEPOSITION. Viewers don’t want to see moderators back slapping each other as they do a crappy job. Real moderators are facilitators, not reality TV hyping types. Pre-debate work up included references to fireworks, controversy, etc., in a weak kneed effort to “create” newsworthy buzz. Pathetic performance and very disappointing. Fortunately the candidates did a reasonable job despite moderators’ obvious lack of professionalism, snarky comments, loaded and leading questions, and singling out of individual debate participants. Where does a person have to go these days for news and events? Hopefully Fox won’t slip further toward the levels of the other lame stream media outlets.

    Kind of an ignominious end for the poor little piece of history that wasn’t hurting anybody. In fact, the C-Flag may have even helped economics through tourism in the historical region.

    Better than the violating the U.S.Constitution and confiscating the firearms of millions law abiding citizens, I suppose. Still, when will politicians keep rolling over for political correctness. Will this stop any more soft target killings? (Rhetorical question, answer is obviously NO).

    Forgot to add, this is the same guy who tried (maybe succeeded) to re-distribute Joe the Plumber’s wealth. This was a working’s man wealth incidentally. Given trillions in US debt — who pays? How about more working people wealth — sound familiar — it’s the “Big C” (,potentially violent and not biological cancer).

    U.S. needs to start a new program: “Noses for Roses.”
    Paying hostage takers stinks. Some president’s need to wake up and smell the roses. Caving to terrorists admits they won and is a sign of cowardice. Cowardice is always a losing proposition.

    Looking at actions that speak louder than propaganda words, the president has established a track record (maybe no bodies yet, but ample shell casings all around):

    1.) Not a free marketer, Rather a big central government authoritarian Leninist (the less philosophical brand of communist) masquerading as a Socialist.

    2.) Authoritarian. Fascist in the mold of Benito Mussolini and Hugo Chavez.

    3.) Islamist. Supports radical Muslim Brotherhood and other deadly Muslim extremist organizations that has actively lead to the downfall of several nations already. Wrote about his love for the religion in his book and appears to be playing it out more and more.

    In short, the US has its first islamo-facist leninist leader — perhaps the first of this kind in the world given the unique construct. Is it suprising that he is OK with paying (funding) radical Muslim extremists, even if it will lead to a LOT more deaths than things like the Charlotte, SC tragedy — open season on the innocent and/or Christians.

    Time to smell the roses or smell something else.

    Bad trade agreement by bad people. Political interests, corporate interests, lack of bilateral trade negotiations, secretive documents not readily viewable by the public — how bad can it get? Mr. Trump may not be the next president, but he’s right on this one too.

    Well put.

    The U.S. is going to politically correct itself right into oblivion. Check that, “left” into oblivion.

    The confederate flag wasn’t hurting anyone and may even been a help to tourism in the area steeped in tradition and history. I am from the North and have never had any problem with the confederate flying.

    The civil war wasn’t just about slavery and the blacks, it concerned massive economics and desires for self governance.

    America needs to stop flogging itself every time a media hyped event occurs. Look at Israel, they are dying daily, but stay focused and pick up the pieces and persevere.

    Yep, hits on at least 91 of 92 categories. There has to be a joke or skit in here someplace. We can’t lose our humor in the face of mountainous B.S.

    Unbelievable but not surprising. Big Government gets bigger in so many different ways. Obviously bigger is not better, just bigger and and goofier as it expands amoeba-like in truly unproductive and stupid directions.

    Scary is the thought that with every new law, regulation, control policy one more human freedom or right is extinguished. Please let us not follow the examples in Europe and communist countries!

    The Russians/Chinese (yes, Communists exist) and radical Muslims of the world would love to see the UNITED STates become un-united. There are domestic groups and foreign groups/funds contributing to “diversity” / divisiveness in the U.S. The trend is frightening and accelerating. The media says there is no “smoking gun” to be seen, but shell casings with finger prints litter the floor. What’s it going to take to wise up and step up and nip this bad stuff in the bud?

    LGBT (Lesbieans, Gays, Bi-sexuals, Transvestites) are entrenched among the multiple and growing number of specially protected “enumerated groups” pushed by the federal government. The LGBT minority is itself growing in numbers, loudness, and aggressive special interest activity, but is still a small fraction of the U.S.

    A 2014 Williams Institute (founded for LGBT issues) study compared several surveys and suggested that the percentage of people are to some degree “LGBT” is around 3-4% of the U.S. The study is interesting and may be found at:

    Other studies have shown that the percentage of people identifying/associating themselves as LGBT in the U.S. is greater than other countries. An important question: WHY is the US self-reporting more LGBT than other countries on average? One good guess involves several drivers covering changing U.S. views, actions, laws/regulations, etc., and disproportionate media coverage/prompting. It’s akin to orchestrated LGBT trolling.

    The trend in alarming, the 2014 Williams Institute study also suggests that as time passes and when considering age, LGBT propensity is accelerating. Roughly by Age Group:

    60+ = 1-2% self report LGBT “association” in some shape/manner.
    30-60 = 2-4%
    18-29 = 3-5%

    Again, WHY the trend?
    How about aggressive LGBT + other special groups, government inspired “diversity,” the media push…as starters. IN/Pence is one more instance.

    Edit: The above reference to psychologists hired should read “inexperienced” — they are coming right of school to “evaluate” students on a broader, more in-depth scale.

    Thought police eventuality is already here and is rolling out at the Federal level and is simultaneously being pushed at the state level. Just compare federal policy (DHS, HHS, EPA, Dept Ed, etc.) and legislation to what is going on in the state legislatures. Classification and stereotyping algorithms and technology are merely tools of implementation.

    As just one example, so-called “Anti-Bullying” bills pushing the Federal “enumerated groups,” social justice charades, etc., are everywhere. They promote anonymous/no-accuser tattling, restrict parental rights, force teachers to meet bullying/political correctness reporting quota, form new restrictive bureaucracies, push one-size fits all Common core, reduce local control of education, hire new young and experienced psychologists at record levels in K-12 schools, promote biased self-serving junk research, keep records on kids and send the information to permanent national databases, monitor and analyze student work and responses on the computer — sometimes even at home (no cyber-bullying or incorrectness allowed!).

    All of this is truly frightening and it’s escalating as more web-like grid work is laid down to force poor federal programs and mandates into the states, school districts, and even community government. The activities are pervasive, well coordinated and timed, and overtly and covertly funded. It’s not hard to see, people just have to look. Grab a shovel and start digging.
