What part of SANCTUARY CITY is confusing? This woman didn’t deserve to die but all of San Francisco deserves this kind of thing on their doorstep. You voted this policy in- it’s all yours. And the WH attempting to blame the Republicans is just embarrassing. Obama doesn’t let the Border Agents do their job- the border is wide open and- should someone get stopped by the police- they’re not able to ask the status of the guy. THIS GUY WAS SENT BACK 5X’S!!!!! That’s Obama’s fault- Reid’s fault- Pelosi’s fault- Napolitano’s fault. CLOSE THE DANG BORDER!

Our own Ted Cruz flip-flopped on TPP. Cruz- on Meet the Press- said that he would close the border then we could have a discussion about the millions of illegals here. Sound familiar?Trump may be brash but- the same reason Beck appreciated Sanders- he speaks his mind. Has he changed positions on things? Yes. So have I. So have many of the current presidential candidates. What two presidential candidates are giving the RNC headaches? Cruz and Trump. The people are tired of losing and we want fighters. We are sick of D.C. and the way it operates. We are sick of the establishment Republicans. The more everyone dog-piles on Trump the more I like him. Cruz/Trump ’16. Works for me.

Geez, people- a guy died. Can we hold the jokes????
He is alternatively afraid and in awe of Obama. He has shown that he is absolutely impotent when negotiating. He has sold us down the river- and continues to do so. His legacy will be that of a traitor- as will Obama’s.

I am also concerned about the literacy of the professor. The response contains grammatical errors and fragmented sentences. It’s barely coherent.
Yeah...but she's been "peer reviewed." It's the level of peers we get to review the way they want it reviewed.

And, in the countries where guns are banned, what happened to the stats on burglaries, assaults, home invasions, etc.?

I canceled HBO after Larry David thought it was hilarious to splash urine on a picture of Jesus. Vote with your wallet.

Love the guy (black) who points at the guy on the ground and walks away laughing. Some poor acting there.

Geez- one person isn’t responsible for educating another person when conducting a financial transaction. The person selling the object should have done their homework. The person buying the object pays what they think the object is worth. This isn’t hard, people.

“Society deteriorated’ ????? Maybe you’d like a horse and buggy to get around. The ability exists to pay for your purchases on your phone. Period- full stop. The clerk was so clearly out of line it is ridiculous that anyone here is trying to defend her or denigrate Starbucks in the process. The app is convenient. Actual money is filthy dirty. But- importantly- how the customer pays for her purchase is absolutely up to her. That clerk is a rude bully who was rightly fired. The customer stayed calm through the whole thing. It’s called manners, class and decorum- none of which the clerk has.

“Lodging a legitimate complaint” is too high-brow for our little friend there.

It’s an outrageous abuse of power from the little man who would be king.

Happy you countered this article with an accurate analysis. The 3/5ths clause helped ensure that the South could not re-instate slavery. It is almost always misinterpreted and often used to illustrate our inherent racism. It should, rather, be used to show the commitment of the North to preventing the possibility of a return to slavery.
Sorry, PattiR, but I don't know where you got that.
The 3/5ths clause was part of the original Constitution -- which recognized the existence of slavery. The clause could not "ensure that the South could not re-instate slavery" because the South HAD slavery at that time (and for decades subsequent).
What the 3/5ths clause DID do was to place a PENALTY ON SLAVERY upon slave states by diminishing the representation in the House of Representatives that the slave state WOULD have had IF there was no slavery in that state.
I'm reading Patti's statement generously. I'm presuming she knows the timeline and means something along the lines that the "diminished representation" stacked the deck against the South rolling back any incremental progress as "wins" were tallied.
Perhaps not but it's clear that she's generally on the right side of the misconception Chad Kent is under. So I'm willing to read broadly.
For example, a powerful South may have got some traction on weakening or rescinding the anti-slavery possibilities inherent in the Article I Section 9 "importation of such persons" clause.

Your mother loves you- lots. I’ll bet some of the other “thugs” wish their mothers loved them as much.
