Real country singers from back in the day didn’t need model looks, tattoos, spiky hair, and videos full of bikini-clad women to get your attention. Their music was all they needed. Many in the industry today have done a disservice to country music.
Kind of like what Hip Hop did to R&B. Now we have a lot of losers who think hip hop is a lifestyle.

Today’s country music is a bunch of guys who wished they were rock stars. Covered in tats, spiky hair, put a bunch of hot bikini-clad women in their videos. And a bunch of girls who want to be pop stars. Most country singers now, both male & female, look like they should be models. No “girl next door” type anymore. I think that’s a sign that greedy record labels have taken full control. They only want to “pretty” people. Give me old school country any day, when the women were real and beautiful. Like the late, great George Jones said…there should be a whole new category created for today’s country…pop country.

When we reach the destination that progressiveism is leading us to, those who helped get them there won’t understand when they too become targets of tyranny. “We helped you achieve your goal,” they’ll say. “Why do you punish us?” Because, no one is immune to tyranny. They’re all too blind to realize they’re just pawns, a means to an end. They’ll then turn to us for help because they’re incapable of helping themselves. They’ll look to those of us who love freedom & liberty and remember what our Founders created. The very ones they demonized for our views & beliefs. Question is, how many of us will be left?

Oh look, people creating controversy where there isn’t one. What a surprise.
The show is planned out. They know what prizes are to be played for during each segment. What they don’t know is which contestant is going to be the next player. What is it with people these days? Why does everyone have to be offended by something in order to live their daily lives?

I’ll go one step further and say that I see a lot more active-duty military running around today in their BDU’s (at least that’s what the camo/work uniform was called when I was in) when they shouldn’t be. When I was in, there were UCMJ regulations as to where & when you could wear your BDU’s and I doubt that’s changed today. But I see many active-duty wearing them because they know they’ll get “thank you’s” or maybe someone will buy them a drink or some sort of attention & recognition. Aside from going against UCMJ regulations, I think it’s wrong to use your service to gain recognition. I hate glory hounds.
You are right. I was in a pub downtown Greenville, Texas last week and there were four guys sitting at a table drinking wearing BDUs. I said nothing but I didn't much like it. Disrespectful of the mission and the uniform.

As a Vet, I don’t really have a problem with what he is wearing. The only patches the guy “ripped off” were the two flags on either shoulder. They’re attached by velcro, so it’s not really “ripped off” in the sense most people would think. As far as I can tell, the two flags are the only patches on that uniform. With nothing else attached (name, branch, rank, etc.) those clothes aren’t much more than just a camo top & pants. He’s basically dressed like most hunters. I’m from a rural area, I see clothes like that all the time. With that said, if he is going around telling people he joined the day before, being dressed like that does make it look like he’s posing as military, but the “uniform” itself isn’t much of a military uniform as it is.

This is the culmination of pacifying these people for all these years. America (republicans, mind you) abolished slavery 150 years ago, yet the political correctness and the guilt trip they’ve laid on us has lead us to this. The black community has become bulletproof. They cannot be touched. Our hands are tied because we continue to have to pacify them for something that ended 150 years ago. Groups like ISIS and others continue to sell slaves, people continue to buy slaves throughout the world to this day, yet no one cares. They only care that the U.S. engaged in slavery over a century ago. And because of it, mobs of blacks can loot, burn, and destroy cities, and lie to reporters and police about things that aren’t even close to being true with little to no consequence. Many continue to claim to be oppressed. Actually, I think they’re sitting in a pretty good position. They hold an entire nation hostage because everyone’s so damn afraid of hurting their feelings.

The company is justified in not wanting to do business with a neighborhood of people who consistently don’t pay their bills or maybe constitute a danger to technicians. They just went about it the wrong way.
No they didn't. They told the truth. Why mince words? State it as you see it.

I’m sure Marcus is hoping that being around some good roll models instead of a bunch of thugs would have a positive influence on that kid. But I’ll be surprised if they accept his offer.
She definitely did the right thing by yanking her son off the streets, but she did it for the wrong reason. Keep in mind she didn’t say she did it because her son was about to commit a crime (dressed in black, gloves, face mask, & backpack). No, she said she didn’t want him to be another Freddie Gray. In other words, she still has a beef with cops.
I tend to agree, but for a different reason. They are typically libs and may not realize what a wonderful invitation they have received. Probably thinks Mark is a slim for fighting for his country!
That's the short of it but in the long story she knew her son was wrong and in a dangerous place. So she went down there where the trouble was and slapped the dog mess out of her boy in public. If nothing else she slapped the stupid out of him for at least a short while.
 May 1, 2015 at 12:17pm
She claims there was no probable cause to apprehend Gray. Say what? He made eye contact with police and ran. I’d say that’s probably cause to pursue, and apprehend, someone until they find out why the person ran from police.
She says she’s seeking justice on behalf of the young people. In other words, she’s guaranteeing blacks she’ll seek the justice they demand, just like the “justice” demanded by Ferguson rioters.
Bottom line, this attorney saw what happened when the Ferguson grand jury refused to indict officer Wilson, so she’s not going to let it happen there. Once again, blacks have hijacked the American justice system and use violence to get their way and have made a nation scared to touch them. That guilt card has served them well. They’re bulletproof.
Making eye contact with police is NOT a lawful basis for a detention.
Running from police when they have NO BASIS to detain you is not illegal.
Gray committed NO CRIME. He did NOTHING WRONG. The police who unlawfully chased him and arrested him without probable cause are the REAL CRIMINALS HERE, and clearly deserve to be charged.
Bottom line; NO real conservative lover of liberty would defend such police-state tactics, unless you believe that black people do not have any Constitutional Rights. Is that it?

“so I pleaded with them and said ‘would you girls please just pack up your stuff and leave my home? I’m begging you.” – homeowner
“It was almost anger.” – cop
*rolling my eyes* Canadians. I guarantee most Americans wouldn’t speak so kindly to vandals who just trashed our home. Airbnb. I never understood why anyone would want to rent out their own private home to strangers. Especially when the homeowner isn’t going to be there. Yes, they will be going through all of your personal belongings.

Whenever someone uses record low temperatures or large snowfalls to dispute global warming, the number one defense in support of climate change from liberals is WEATHER DOES NOT EQUAL CLIMATE. What they’re saying is, a single, or even a seasonal, weather event is not the same as overall climate. But, BUT, they continue to use WEATHER in support of climate change. Hurricane Sandy – they all said climate change. A violent tornado strikes in the midwest – they always say, “See, climate change.” How is it that weather can’t be used to dispute climate change but can be used to support it? Oh, that’s right, because liberals have become the most hypocritical people on the planet.
Obama calls for nationwide preparation for a climate change apocalypse and he’s a genius. But Bush speaks of the dangers of terrorism and Al Gore runs around the country screaming, “HE PLAYED ON OUR FEARS!” Well looky there, more hypocrisy.

I’m not a religious man, but I’d say that pastor is a disgrace to christianity. Just another black man (yes, I’m assuming he’s black, so sue me) offering up excuses for violent animals who destroy & steal, trying to justify their actions when there is none. Before getting to the end of the article, I was going to say those kids’ pastor should kick them out of the church. Then I read the pastor’s words and realize he’s as much of an ass as they are. Sounds like they might have Westboro Baptist on their Christmas card list.

Here’s the problem I have with this… While Feranti was well within his rights to record the police officer in a public space, why was he doing so? He walked up to a traffic stop that he was not involved in and began recording. He says it was to “protect the community.” BULL. He’s not helping his community by hassling police. He’s doing it for some “likes” on facebook and views on YouTube. While he may have had the right to do it, it still made him an a-hole.
You need to change your avatar name to "Stormtrooper Supporter." I'm sure the Empire will give you a sticker to put on your back window for your faithful support.
you don’t need a reason. They don’t give you a reason to record and track you. Does that make "them" a-holes? According to you... it does... and I want to keep track of the a-holes to make sure they don't get out of line.
This guy Feranti, he's a tool, just listen to him talk, he's looking for a confrontation with the officer, that's all !!! When the officer found out he was being recorded, he should of told Feranti " You enjoy the rest of your day now sir " and got in his cruiser and left. That would of diffused the whole situation, he wouldn't of had to get his Sargent out there and Feranti would of left pissed that he didn't get a rise out of the officer. It's moron's like Feranti who cause problems where there were none to begin with !!
Agree he might be an ahole but thats not a crime
Being an *** is every American citizens god given right. Many people prove that right here day in and day out.
That is what whites said about blacks during the 60's I do not care if this guy flouted the law. I heard Bill O'riely last night say just a few blacks are making the causing problems the rest have to deal with. Well, same with police; A few bad apples spoils the basket.
If this was 40 or 50 years ago when policing was predominately a peace officer action I would agree.
Do any type of search you want. We all know that it is difficult to get arrested if a law enforcement employee because of the union connection. Do something simple: check by department - pick the state - see how many sexual predators have been arrested/ convicted that are law enforcement employees. Here in FL if you are a woman, girl or young boy alone you are in real danger. Am I saying they all are? Heck no! Is it you that will sacrifice one of your children's' childhood and be scarred for life because you refuse to look at what is going on?
Well sir, for me I want everyone and anyone within sight of any law enforcement action to be taking video. This is necessary because the 70% that are moral will not get rid of the 10% that are criminal and overcome the 20% that care about nothing but their compensation.
so he an ass hole he's still doing an important job, getting police used to being photographed and acting accordingly.

They mentioned that most of their time away was during standardized testing. So their kids were truly not missing out on anything. My son’s school is taking the “after-PARCC” test this week. What the hell is that? I don’t know. They spent over a week preparing the students to take the PARCC test. Then they spent a week taking the PARCC. Now they’re taking up another full week taking this after-PARCC. That’s nearly a whole month of school wasted on standardized testing. A month that could’ve been used to, oh I don’t know, EDUCATE them.

I hear this argument a lot…that poor children only get to eat when it’s the meal they have at school. Yeah, let’s not be pissed at the parents who aren’t feeding their kids but can buy cigarettes, weed, & alcohol. Instead, they’re pissed at a store feeding members of our military. Progressiveism has completely rotted the brains of about half the nation and the numbers continue to rise.
April 28, 2015 at 10:59pm
So she didn’t care that her son was ready to commit acts of violence and possibly looting (black clothes, gloves, face mask, backpack). What she really was saying is that she didn’t want the police to kill him too.
She sure as hell cared that her son was participating and hooded/masked up! That's the reason she knocked him upside the head! Watch the full interview and you'll see that she is a great mom, doing the best she can to raise a kid that doesn't get into this life of violence and criminal behavior!
I like! Changed that -1 to a neutral place. Your right and obviously a clear critical thinker. She is not the mom of the year, she is just someone who stepped up in the belief her son might be killed, not for his demonstrated behaviours and being there in the first place.
April 28, 2015 at 5:51pm
Anytime he says something good, whether it’s about America, christians, or whatever, there’s always a “but” that follows with this disgusting man. What follows the “but” is what is truly on his mind and in his soul…hatred for America, hatred for christians, hatred for whites, and the love of those who see the progressive movement carried out.
Your onto him! Good.
Some cannot hear how he speaks. He lays a thick coating of syrup on top of a big fat turd and expects you to eat it. Most do!

Why aren’t the two amounts recommended to be paid out to the gay women equal? Do you mean to tell me that in an effort to force equality, the judge says these two gay women aren’t equal to one another and one suffered more than the other, causing her to deserve more money?
A govt. forcing a christian business owner to pay up will only set a very dangerous precedent. I truly believe gay couples actively seek out christian business owners because they know what will happen and they want to ruin them. But now they know they can extort money from these businesses. Less than 3% of the U.S. population has taken us hostage and our govt. is helping them do it.
You sound like Obama. Everyone that works with youth, donates time and money, builds a business, or just pays taxes is building their city. This man I am sure gives of his time and money as well as pays his taxes to give back to his community. You are dead wrong!
Not a sports fan, but baseball makes a zillion jobs at the stadium, right?
