    I finally ran across a story that showed what he said. As far as I can tell, he just said something to the effect that she did a crappy job in a crappy movie, in his flamboyant way. Maybe he was a little rude, but I saw nothing racist or personal and I didn’t see anything where he incited anyone to say anything.

    To be fair, some of the treatment she got was pretty horrible, but I can’t understand why he was banned or why anyone is worked up about what he said.

    Let’s not vilify police? Fine time to adopt that position. That would have been nice to do a week or a month or a year ago.

    Wow, now I feel like I’ve been completely wasting my life.

    There is no gun problem. Debate over.

    Another fact they don’t want people to know is, the murder rates in these countries they hold up as examples were always much lower than ours, even before gun bans. Instead, they point at the lower murder rate and directly credit gun bans.

    Fair point, but it’s a good bet that he personally knows people who couldn’t use any restroom or water fountain or eat in any restaurant. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t endorse the culture of victimhood but it’s not like Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and things were suddenly awesome. That bad stuff is finally in the past today but I can’t blame a person of his age for still feeling a connection to it, even though slavery ended way back then.

    “9 mph on a city street is irresponsible and dangerous.”

    If you’re talking about a tight, urban street with one lane and parking on both sides, you’re probably right. Most other streets, not even close. Resist the brainwashing that tells you that the speed limit correlates to danger.

    In TX, the speed limit on many two-lane country/suburban roads is 65 or even 70 mph. I’m talking roads with homes/driveways right there, not roads in the middle of nowhere. In NJ, those same exact kinds of roads, same traffic density, etc. would NEVER be above 50 mph, anywhere.

    Speed limits are somewhat arbitrary and used to be a fuel-saving measure (when the speed limit on interstates was 55). Not only that, but they’re used to boost revenue in towns. This can be directly observed when the limit on a street is artificially low (like 25 mph in an area with huge streets, no pedestrians, and generally low traffic), as well as in places where the speed limit goes rapidly up and down and up and down on a road. They bank on people not noticing the change and officers wait inside where the limit drops. A few mph over turns into 8 or 10+ mph over very quickly.

    If speed limits were truly about safety, then there should be speeding cameras on every street, doling out tickets automatically, all day, every day. But of course, they’re not. That’s why we put well-paid officers out collecting money from a very small percent of people who are actually committing the offense.

    If you place so little value on your own life, feel free to “challenge” yourself however you like. But just know that when your corpse is laying frozen on Mount Everest until the end of time, I will still be remarking what an idiot you are.

    I can’t help but wonder why people still insist on committing suicide in this manner. They could just blow their brains out for a few cents.

    I think you need to review what federal law refers to when it talks about coordinating with super PACs. It essentially forbids a campaign telling a PAC how and where to spend money. None of your facts point to that. To my knowledge, appearing at fundraisers is not a violation of law. If you can counter that, then by all means do so.

    I hate to have to point this out but just because Trump said Cruz illegally coordinated with a super PAC doesn’t make it true. In fact, much of what he says is provably false. I’m not trying to change your mind or offend you, I’m just pointing out the obvious.

  • May 18, 2016 at 11:26am

    If you’re going to declare it a fact, in capital letters, no less (must be a super-duper fact), then how about providing some kind of evidence that Cruz coordinated with super-PACs, in violation of federal law.

  • [3] May 18, 2016 at 1:32am

    And now Trump is sucking from the teat. So there goes that whole charade.

  • [3] May 18, 2016 at 1:17am

    And yet, Cruz was “bought and paid for” because he once took out a loan from evil Wall Street. You people can’t have it both ways.

    What kind of building is this guy expecting to find in “the countryside” that would be even remotely representative of WTC? Or any building that resides in the First World, for that matter?

    This guy is just basically running a Kickstarterish campaign to make the most viral video in history. He’s going to take $1.5 million from conspiracy nuts and multiply it by ten.

    To clarify, I’m not saying the government should be involved. But people should be pretty angry. Like torches and pitchforks angry.

    It’s not that it’s a news source. It’s that it’s a conduit for information. Sure, private company can do what it wants, blah blah. But when the free flow of information is surreptitiously poisoned, it’s a big issue. It’s akin to a phone operator listening to your calls and disconnecting them if topic is something forbidden. Would we say, jeez you’re an idiot if you’re getting your news over the phone? Hell no.

    I’ve seen a number of comments saying “better safe than sorry.” I agree, if the guy is lighting his shoes, assembling something with wires, and so on. But at what point is furious scribbling a danger to anyone? What difference does it make if it was algebra or Arabic?

    People who live their lives afraid of their own shadows could at least apply a little logic to their irrational fear.

    I did the right thing. I supported a limited-government conservative. He didn’t win, so this is where we part ways. Enjoy your big-government progressive! You have a couple of choices. When the GOP wants my support, it will nominate a small-government conservative. Until then, enjoy!

    Especially since a lot of people voting for Trump literally are planning on voting for Clinton later.

  • [17] April 22, 2016 at 10:32pm

    Why do people act like delegates are inanimate objects sitting on a table that someone can just climb through a window and steal? As opposed to thinking human beings that make decisions for themselves.
