He is correct, his syntax is a little off. Judicial overreach is destroying our constitution. Tying the Slave Freeing 14th Amendment to Same Sex marriage is ridiculous. No different than the ACA - Obama Care ruling.
In 1857 the Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 decision that an African American is not a human or a citizen and therefore has no rights or standing to sue in federal court. Is that still the Law of the Land?

Well, every single candidate has a super pac, so of course they all get donated too by billionaires, and in return whoever wins will give the billionaire donors whatever they want.
except Bernie sanders that is.

The big deal is no candidate should be getting more than $5400 from any one person. We need to do away with these super pacs and the hell Citizens United has bestowed upon us. No candidate gets my vote unless they pledge to get citizens united overturned.
The rich do not need to have more say than any other man or woman.

In order to go to a flat tax (same tax rate for everyone) we would need an EFFECTIVE tax rate of 34% if we want to fund government with zero deficit.
Funding government. The more they get for whatever bs they spend our money on, the more you'll be bending over. Fiscal responsibilty has never been their strong point.
Not sure I want to fund the current level of government. Back when I was in Industry we looked at something called Return on Assets Employed (ROAE) before deciding on what to fund and what to cut. I would suggest a long hard look at the return/benefit of:
EPA (Mission cleanup toxic waste sites) Talk about mission creep?
Department of Energy (Stated Mission to make us energy independant) Well?
Department of Education (Mission to improve Math and Science scores) Well?
Department of Labor (Mission ?)
Department of HHS ( Mission ?)
Department of HUD (Urban Development) Really? Check out downtown Detroit!
Department of Transportation (Beyond the FAA what does it do?)
Department of Veterans Affairs (Protect and care of Veterans) now that's a success!
Department of Homeland Security (make us safe) Well prove it!
Department of Agriculture (Mission lost to antiquity)
Haven't talked about entitlement reform or DOD budgets yet. By the way the only Military force mandated by the Constitution is the Navy (which includes the Marines of course). The Army is supposed to be on a 3 year lish. OK, you got me we didn't have an Air Force when the Constitution was written so they get a special look see. Remember the Navy and Marines both come with air arms.
Now let's talk about tax rates!

Flat tax at current levels puts it at 34%. If you are currently paying less than 34% effective tax rate, prepare to bend over to uncle sam under a flat tax.
Any consideration to the many millionaires + paying a flat rate of 14 percent with no write offs? Seems to me that would allow everyone to pay about 14. You are right about "current" levels though. Thats what the debates all about.
Oh hum, guess we just stick with the system we have.

Did the mother provide sunscreen for the child with explicit directions to apply it to her children?
If not, her bad.

but how many times do we need to hear about the “bad apples” before the good apples start making changes?
If I have a bucket full of apples, and one apple is moldy and covered in bugs and worms, the entire bucket is tainted.

you can say that all you want “if she had just obeyed the man”
but the point is, she didn’t have to obey. she complied as law required. she should never have been asked to step out of the car, should not have been pulled out of the car, should not have been arrested or charged.
she exercised her rights, and the system took advantage.
imagine if someone walking down the street exercising their second amendment rights by open carry was arrested, and turned up dead 3 days later with no official charge. where would the outrage be then?
why because it is first amendment instead of 2nd amendment do the blaze readers suddenly side with the police?

yes, as a prisoner you are officially a ward of the state, and as law, anyone who appears suicidal, such as when they admit it, must be monitored for their own safety.
90 minutes went by from the time the motion camera detected motion until her body was discovered (though by some amazing means the motion camera didn’t film while she “hung herself”).
come on, use your brain, something isn’t right here.
July 23, 2015 at 2:43pm
exactly. bow down, forget about your rights, and spread that anus!

downvoted by people who are in favor of police brutality.
nice blaze, nice.

probably because she did nothing illegal except for a moving violation.
she laid no hand on the officer, did not threaten the officer, and posed no threat to the officer.
she exercised her first amendment rights and as a result was arrested for no cause. why can’t you “conservatives” ever realize that maybe, just maybe, there are bad cops out there?
She resisted arrest, she refused to get out of the car. She antagonized the cop by being a bitch who thought she didn't have to obey laws. She deserves everything she got. Blacks aren't above the law just because they're black!
July 23, 2015 at 1:33pm
and all I’m saying is, a persons rights trump an angry cop. she did nothing illegal, and complied as necessary by law.
