    Eminent domain is a necessary evil. It’s one thing to do it to build a road or a school. But to do it for economic development “for the greater good” is entirely different. How the Supreme Court upheld this practice is beyond understanding.

    Not only is a system like that rife with cronyism, but it is a little too communist for me. Private property rights are one of the most fundamental conservative principles. How someone can support taking property by force so that people can make a buck is a mystery to me. Especially so-called conservatives.

    I appreciate you saving me some typing.

    How many mass shootings can you name in the past 50 years where the guns were acquired through the “black market” with no background check?

    I’m pretty sure Nye made the argument that if my father is an a-hole, my mother should have the right to kill me.

    I don’t think I would ask her any question. I would just point out to her that if a baby survives an abortion then, by definition, there was just an attempted murder of a person. This is why she insists it never happened.

    I’ve been saying that for a long time. And I go one more step. Have a huge list of the things that get funded by the government currently like research of shrimp running on treadmills or funding for the arts and all the useless departments of whatever. Check the box and include in your total. Watch how fast spending is reduced.

    I don’t know, but a lot of people, including the league itself, seem to think it is a social advocacy organization.

    In my observation, NFL teams seem willing to overlook an awful lot if they think a player can help them win the Super Bowl. Domestic violence, DUI, steroids/recreational drug use (probably less of that these days with the testing), general bad attitudes, etc. I have a hard time believing not a single team in the league would look past being gay if they thought he was a good player.

    The “run of the mill slap” one should have made the top ten.

    Haha… I do the same thing. During that Rosie feud, during one of his interviews, he said, “As unattractive as she is on the outside, she is equally unattractive on the inside.”

    Whenever he rips somebody a new one, that’s the line I hear.

    I don’t think so, because if she admits it, the GOP will run ads all day, every day, showing the lies and the admission coming out of her own mouth. Not only that, it amps up the legal trouble because she is admitting knowledge.

    I think she’s still lying because she’s got nothing to lose at this point. As soon as she admits it, her world is over.

    He didn’t shoot the officer over 1.7 grams of pot. He shot the officer because he’s a felon on supervised release, in possession of a gun, in the middle of an illegal drug deal.
    I only wish the officer had gotten the upper hand and the confrontation had turned out the right way. Of course, then he’d have been ruined in the media and we’d be hearing more about white cops hunting down innocent black men. But at least he’d still be with his family.

    That’s pretty ironic considering the incidents that they’re most upset about happened in places run by Democrats.

    Fortunately, as we’ve been told, we can fix the education system by throwing lots of money at it. Empty your pockets, people!

    How is a person supposed to see a doctor who is black and not wonder if he was an unqualified affirmative action case? If I was black, I would be irate about a system that was put into place which causes my qualifications to automatically be called into question because unqualified candidates are propped up.

    Figuratively dancing on Reid’s grave is one thing, but I look forward to the day when I can dance on his actual grave.

    We’re not just talking about political or philosophical differences here. We’re talking about an awful human being.

    And one more thing. You’ll notice that link you posted (from the opinion section, btw) references homicides, not murders. This is a typical scare stat trick. Self defense is a justifiable homacide. Yet, these are lumped in with some guy shooting his wife after an argument. It’s intellectually dishonest and makes a fraudulent argument.

    If you don’t get on a plane, your chances of dying in a plane crash are drastically reduced.

    And did you even bother to read that link? There are something like 200 million guns owned in the US and 680 people accidentally shot themselves. Accidental poisoning kills tens of thousands. Do you lock your drain cleaner up in a safe? If not, you’re a menace to children.

    And in the homicide section, the author never even stated how many corresponded to homes with guns in them. Not a single factual statistic was presented that demonstrated that a gun in the home leads to more danger of homicide.

    What does fear have to do with preparedness? Do you wear a seatbelt in your car voluntarily? Why would you do that unless you’re living in fear of being in a serious car wreck every day? Do you lock your car/house doors? Why would you do that unless you’re afraid of getting burglarized? Do you have health insurance? Why would you do that unless you’re afraid of getting sick? Why are you so fearful?
