    Oh, forgot to mention my 2nd main point, but its basic morality, manners & common sense:

    No reason, nor morality to kill or even inconvenience (ie road blockages) any persons.

    Murdering any random police officer or other person because of whatever?!?!
    True for any specific person too.

    What wrong did each police officer do in killing a suspect?
    Answer: each was too quick on the draw. Without a weapon in the suspect’s hand, the officer should not have shot, especially multiple times.
    Is there not a mantra to disable & not kill?
    About all of these officers should be fired, not allowed to work in police or security because their reactions are too soon, & maybe charged with manslaughter.

    Reiterating: Don’t fire until you see a weapon in the hands of the suspect!

    It’s even worse for police shooting dogs. What kind of of over-reactive wimpy, trigger-happy police are there?

    BTW, in case any reader is trying to guess a demographic profile on me: I’m white, kinda big, Republican/libertarian, have rich parents (father made it on own), grew up in white suburbia, but saw no racism (friends with blacks), … None of that should matter, just common sense statements.

    Oh, BTW, Bill Maher is an idiot who is so wrong in many facts & conclusions. Most recently, he praised CA’s economy. It’s in bad shape, despite struggling, it’s fairly robust [mostly due to IT]: its deficit is large; schools are terrible; residents are leaving; 1/3 of all US welfare recipients are here (2.5x average); crime is up (partly due to early prison releases…

    In addition to Blacks already being higher in suspect due to their higher crime rates (3x+) — often a result of no father figure, due to Dem policies — the BLM movement & attack on cops are making Blacks even more suspect. Go figure, a leftist ideology gone wrong?!

    “No way for Mexico to pay.”
    How’s that? How about:
    Foreign aid. Not sure how much, but regardless of wall, there should not be foreign aid going to many countries — not necessarily because of their ideology, but their need or ability to generate income, among other reasons.

    Pay?: Tariffs & charges on money sent from the US to Mexico? A total shutdown on cross-border traffic.

    Although, a secure wall from the Pacific to the Rio Grande leaves the river open, and there are many other ways that illegal aliens get into this country, such as a visa which becomes expired.

    A sieve or colander needs to plugged at every hole. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

    How clumsy is he?
    I’m kidding. We don’t know details, but a supposed lack of coordination begs the question.
    No matter. Hey, accidents happen, usually careless.

    Hey Governor Abbott, if Trump doesn’t win, time for Txexit? I’ll gladly move there from the authoritarian state of California (SJ, for 11 years). Actually, things are generally nice [&expensive] here, but I despise the leftism in so many things. For example, building a house might take $100,000 in gov fees/taxes.

    “Racial equality” OK
    How about Whites:
    kill Whites at the same rate as Blacks kill Blacks?
    commit crimes at same rate as Blacks?
    go on welfare at same rate as Blacks?

    Will that be more equal?

    I don’t believe Carlson. I’m disappointed in her fabrication.
    If it happened, why didn’t she file/complain soon after it allegedly happened?
    Is she mixing up sexual advances/overtures with physical harassment?
    It seems unlikely that Ailes even did the former. Altholugh, maybe.

    Criminals diagnosed with ______.
    Making up excuses. No matter the “brain problem” a person knows certain things are wrong — theft, destruction, murder, etc.

    If, for some absurd reason, the perp doesn’t, that’s more reason for execution or confinement, depending upon the crime.

    What does the BLM racist group, devoid of facts, try to accomplish in blocking transportation?

  • June 15, 2016 at 4:46pm

    Of course, access to guns did not create the desire to kill people — the Koran did.

    Without guns, this guy still would’ve killed; the fatalities could’ve been worse. He could’ve torched the place [using simple gasoline] & blocked the doors, killing 200+ people.

    ~”To portray a Christian, a KKK robe should be worn.”
    WTF!? Why is that? At the KKK’s height, there was a small % of population being members (Democrats). Of course much smaller now (0.0001% ?) Nothing in the Bible is about being prejudice against Blacks, much less harming or killing them. Whereas, there are many passages in the Koran about killing gays, non-believers & others.

    The garb in the video used to depict a Muslim is not even Islamic, but Arabic. There used to be many millions of Arabs who were Christian or Jewish, but for many centuries, Muslims have been killing or converting them [by force].

    It’s Trump’s fault, right? He’s responsible for opposition whom are rude, unruly & violent, because he’s supposedly racists & hate-filled, none of which is true. It’s too bad that many don’t comprehend English very well, but insert their own implications into his meaning.

    Trump is for immigration, which is, by definition, involves a legal process that a person goes through, and he is against illegal aliens, as are a majority of citizens.

    I doubt that a Republican, even a RINO, would sign on as a VP candidate, except to eventually sabotage her.

    WHAT TEST?!!!!
    No links were provided.
    Here’s what I found: http://www.drcraigmalkin.com/the-narcissism-test
    Be forewarned, that you’ll have to enter info & give an email address.

    It was only 10 questions, and seemed way short of figuring anything out.

    BTW, my results were “average,” which are wrong. I should be “below average” on narcissism, even though I have many physical, mental & financial traits above average, I certainly don’t feel or act like that.

    Vague examples: I’m humble, do not patronize others (have 3 degrees), do not try to threaten/intimidate others (I’m kind big), do not like to correct or prove others wrong, et al.

    Didn’t read your post because it’s a mesh of ~20 lines.

    Do you know about paragraphs?

    A nuke to generate an EMP would not be detonated above the White House. It would be near the center of the country, maybe a little east, to make sure that DC is hit.

    Apparently you don’t know who far an EMP travels, but good try.

    You have math & biology down really well. You typed “Trump is 69 going on 70.” Real good at figuring the next number, braniac.

    Age is often used against a candidate, but has it been a problem when in office? Trump is sharp & fit, especially for a guy almost 70.

    Unnecessary, unfounded & irrelevant.

    Does Rubio need more water intake than the average person? So what? Talking uses water; it;s unknown how much water Rubio had prior to that speech, and how much he exerted himself.

    If Rubio hadn’t made such a quick dash to get water, but was more casual, there probably would have been hardly a mention of his need to hydrate.

    I need more water than average, even for my weight of 210 (6′-1″), which includes more muscle than average.

    Think about this:
    Almost every taxpayer who earns more than a $million in one year pays much more in Federal income taxes than the average person grosses. which would be a minimum of Federal income taxes at $130,000 – $140,000, assuming only the capital gains tax (15% minus deductions).

    Although, most earners acquire their income through other means, rather than long-term investments (1+ years), so would be subject to the marginal tax rates, paying a rough average of 25%+ of their gross income. Add to that state income taxes, ACA (obamacare) income taxes, & other, these high income earners (& job providers/generators) are paying an additional 8-15% of their income. Many other taxes that they pay too (& their businesses), much more than average.

    Keep in mind that most millionaires don’t make a $million in one year, but have saved much for longer than a decade.

    So, who says that rich are not paying fair share & why?

    Who’s to say that a car salesman would not better than any current politician?
