    The slow trickle crap is beyond old at this point. Either he was hit, or he wasn’t. If he was, then there are photos and there is a hospital report. Period. Release them, be done with it and remove all doubt. But all of this “sources say” bullish## just feeds the skepticism and paranoia and does NOTHING to shut down the other side. If there’s evidence that he was treated right after the incident, then it blows the “witness’” testimony out of the water completely and for the most part ends all debate as to why Brown was shot. Then the discussion turns to “what was the sequence that led to 6 shots being fired instead of 1,2,3 etc. But given that 4 of the six were in Browns arm, and the ones to the head would have put him down, it seems pretty straight forward to claim the officer was definitely not seeing straight / shooting straight after being clocked in the head and was unable to bring Brown down with the shots in the arm. With a 9mm… that’s more than plausible.

    So IF he was beaten, then there’s a VERY logical case to be made as to 1) why he started to shoot, 2) why he kept shooting, and 3) why he stopped when he did. If the best witness they’ve got to contradict him can’t come up with anything better than “he never touched him”… “he grabbed 6’4″ 300 lb Lil’ Mikey by the throat from inside his car for no reason”… “he shot him in the back as Lil’ Mikey was running away” (while autopsy shows all shots from the front), then I’d say they’re screwed.

    Liberals are ALWAYS confused by facts and reality. Why is this a story? Just because he said he bought a fully automatic AR15… in 20 minutes? Liberals always lie, regardless of how ridiculous or easily disproven. So again, this is a story why? Oh… because he looked like a moron on national television? Liberals always… ok, I give up.

  • [9] August 21, 2014 at 12:55pm

    Don’t know him obviously, but all outward appearances make me think he’s one of the most genuine people out there… especially on TV. Seems like a guy you’d just love to hang with.

    That’s right… a 6 year old can’t put his fingers in the shape of a gun playing cops and robbers in HIS OWN YARD without being reported to the school and disciplined, but a teacher can have a bunch of kids reenact a police shooting, apparently without bothering to include ANY of the actual facts that have come out in the case. She can segregate the white students from the black students and force the white students to portray what SHE BELIEVES is the evil racist cop. And she’s on a paid vacation?

    Yeah… teachers… most valuable asset we have shaping the future of our country, right? Got it.

    Cute banner. Are there asterisks next to all of the names of “victims” who actually were committing crimes and had weapons at the time, or would that simply be too much work. Maybe it would be simpler to just highlight the ones who didn’t?

  • [42] August 21, 2014 at 12:15pm

    Problem is now every fruit loop in the state will be saying “let us use your home or pay us $13,000, and the precedent is now there. This country’s screwed… plain and simple.

    Unfortunately, what he learned is simply that he’s a violent thug with no concern for the rights or safety of others around him, he might get his a## shot. That may or may not prevent him from doing it again, but it doesn’t do a damned thing to address the real problem. The fact that as a teenager he’s already been raised with a set of values that would allow even the thought of this act to be considered OK. How do you have to be raised to think that attacking some innocent person for doing nothing but standing on a corner waiting for his kids is going to be “fun”. It’s a clear sign that regardless of what he’s learned at the end of a gun this time around, this kid’s already broken inside, and the odds are he’ll be headed down the wrong path again very soon.

    So her sources and contacts as a police reporter in Ferguson are all null and void while she is on FMLA? OK.

    Then let it spread. It’s inevitable anyway. This is what’s been brewing since Obama took office and started tearing away at any shred of progress that had been made over the last generation of race relations. He’s been on the wrong side of EVERY race issue that’s come up since he was elected. Comments like “the police in Cambridge acted stupidly”, and “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”, and now “there is no excuse for the police using excessive force”. This was all said BEFORE he had any idea of what had happened in any of those cases, and in each case, he was dead wrong. But his comments did nothing but fuel the hatred and the rioting.

    It’s coming. They’ve polarized this country more than I’ve seen in my 40+ year lifetime, and there’s pretty much no way it’s going to heal itself before it gets worse… not as long as people like Obama and his leftist scum henchmen like Holder do nothing but pick at the scab on a daily basis.

    So screw it. Let it come. Let ‘em burn down their own neighborhoods. Let them wipe out the stores where they get their food, where those of them who actually have jobs work, where their kids go to school. And when they’re done and they realize they’re now starving to death, they’ll look outside the cities. And that’s when it will be over – at least it will in my area. You thought the Korean store owners during the King riots were effective? Sh##!

    One more quick thought. The last time we saw a true conservative resurgence in this country (2010 not withstanding), was under Reagan? Did Reagan run on pushing conservative values through a Federal agenda? No. He ran on getting the government OUT of your life. Remember these?

    “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government IS the problem”.

    “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.”

    “A taxpayer is someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take a civil-service exam.”

    “The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man. The American dream is that every man must be free to become whatever God intends he should become.”

    “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”

    These are reflections of the principles that drove that movement. I’m waiting for a platform built on THIS foundation!

    Just imagine a left that couldn’t run on abortion, and couldn’t run on gay issues. All they’d have left is their race-baiting and eco-terrorism. They’d be done. Think that through a little. The answer isn’t getting a Federal government that pushes for your issues, because you’ll always be battling as the other side takes power and undoes everything you’ve done. The answer is getting government pushed OUT OF YOUR ISSUES altogether.

  • [4] August 19, 2014 at 12:19pm

    Not to trivialize your issues regarding gay marriage and abortion, as I do believe they’re both important… the latter more so than the former. But at the end of the day, any legislation a politician pushes on either front will be meaningless unless that legislation is upheld in the courts. Calling that sort of thing out in a platform simply gives the left their whipping boy to turn out the women and the liberal freaks who put a higher value on murdering children than they do on the welfare of the country.

    We’ve lost God knows how many elections because abortion became the centerpiece of the debate, when in reality, the ONLY thing a conservative President can do to address those issues is appoint more conservative judges, and just about any conservative President will do that – or will at least try. So what good does it do having it in your platform and opening yourself up to attack if you can’t do a damned thing about it via legislation?

    Now on the gay marriage thing… I personally think everyone is approaching this from the wrong angle. We shouldn’t be asking the government to sanctify one form of marriage vs. another. We should be asking WTF is the government doing in the marriage business in the first place. It’s none of their business. And the only reason they have any say in the debate at all is because the unfairly apply tax rules based on marital status. Get government out of marriage… straight and gay… and this entire issue goes away.

    Can someone please explain block granting Medicaid to States? WTF is the logic behind pulling money from the states, to pay for Medicaid spending, then turn around and send it back to them? There are only two reason, IMO, that could make sense.

    1) One state is subsidizing another. In other words, larger concentrations of the poor in one state mean they’ll get a disproportionate share of the Medicaid block grants back after they’ve been reapportioned based on demographics. Sorry… that’s horse####. Why in the hell should one state be forced to subsidize another. Any “Republican” who comes at me with this crap has already admitted he doesn’t get federalism.

    2) If the above isn’t true, then it assumes permanent deficit spending and eliminates the possibility of a balanced budget. The Federal government does not PRODUCE income, it confiscates it. The ONLY way the Federal government can return more to EVERY state than it collects from them is to augment the returns with borrowed money. You can’t pull X from the states, and give X+1 BACK to the states without borrowing the 1. Period.

    So Medicaid reform is garbage unless it simply turns over ALL Medicaid spending to the states… not through block grants but by simply elimination of the collection of Medicaid dollars FROM the states and allowing them to manage their own programs how they see fit. That’s the only way to ensure that no state is responsible for subsidizing another and no deficit spending.

    EXACTLY! What we know as of right now is that the “kid” had just forceably robbed a store clerk, was smoking weed (hello… paranoia??), was confronted by police, was freakin’ MASSIVE and clearly had a cr## attitude. The audio on that call clearly indicates he was going at the cop, and all of the shots being to the front of the body clearly indicate the stories of being shot in the back as he ran away are bull####.

    Still not proof the cop didn’t overdo it, but at the end of the day, the cops have no legal obligation (or moral one IMO) to lower their use of force to match the weaponry of the assailant attacking them. If I see a 6’4″ 300 lb monster running at me with the obvious intent to take me apart, I’m putting one right between his eyes. All of these morons saying “he didn’t have to use deadly force” would be singing a different tune if they were in his position. Where is it written that a cop is required to sacrifice his life to a beating just because a suspect doesn’t have a gun? That’s right… it’s not.

    Now… 6 rounds? Dunno. Don’t know what the first 3-4 did. God knows a 9mm isn’t know for it’s stopping power, so it’s conceivable that the cop simply fired until Lil’ Mikey hit the ground… which is what I would have done. And anyone who’s ever pulled off 6 rounds through a 9mm semi knows how fast those can go. Walk a mile… that’s all I’m sayin’.

  • [7] August 18, 2014 at 3:22pm

    Will admit… a 9MM shoots smooth, fast and accurate. But without special loads (which the police aren’t carrying), it’s about the last thing I’d want as a carry weapon. Lil’ Mikey probably never felt the first few rounds even go through him. No stopping power at all compared to a .45 or even a .40. Now if the officer had hit him with a .45 on the first shot, odds are Lil’ Mikey would’ve hit the ground immediately and the cop would have had no reason to keep firing.

    Great sign. Threaten violence right below the words “Don’t Shoot”. Heh. I’d laugh my ass off if someone put one right between his eyes. How about this. Don’t Loot, Don’t Throw Molotov Cocktails, Don’t Attack Police, National Guard or Private Business Owners and Innocent People… and we won’t shoot. Otherwise… Better duck, ’cause you’re about to have a chase to ask Lil’ Mikey Brown what happened face to face.

  • [1] August 18, 2014 at 3:16pm

    Go to the docks and run them all over with forklifts and shipping containers?

  • [1] August 18, 2014 at 3:15pm

    Uh… they do understand they can all be arrested for that, right? That’s not just protesting, that’s interfering with a country’s and a business’ legal right to do business. They have no right to do so, and should all be imprisoned as they attempt it. Would love to see them all dragged off.

  • August 18, 2014 at 12:57pm

    While I tend to agree with you in spirit, walking down the middle of the street in the open while thugs, good aim or not, are barricaded in their homes have them in a cross-fire is not a good scenario. The best of shots isn’t going to fare well in that scenario.

    Again, this sh## just isn’t necessary. I’m all for CCW. I have a CCW. I’m as pro 2A as you can get, but there’s just no reason for this. It does NOTHING to bring positive attention to the issue. Any time someone starts exercising rights “just to prove they can”, it’s the beginning of a downward spiral.

    Not a great analogy, but consider Westborough “Baptist Church”. Those freaks rely on 1st A claims to allow them to effectively ambush the families of fallen heroes & desecrate their funerals. Do they have a right to free speech? Yes. Was anyone challenging that? No. But the minute you start pushing the bounds of decency & impacting someone else’s rights, you open the door for challenges in court… & then it’s anyone’s guess what happens.

    Think about it… they walk down the street in SJL’s hood. Some black man says “a bunch of white guys came walking down the streets with ARs and I thought we were under siege, so I opened fire. I felt threatened.” Dozens dies in the fight. How long do you think it will be before challenges are made to their right to open carry, claiming their fears were reasonable given history of race relations. Now we suddenly have the PC police tinkering with 2 A???

    Did she just say that black males shouldn’t be exposed to ARs because they’re too violent? Seriously?

    “We are certainly not a community… that is looking for the ability to carry an AR-15,” Jackson Lee said. “There is an epidemic plaguing black men in this country. AR-15′s, carrying them is not in any way a positive for the children that are in this community.”

    An “epidemic plaguing black men in this country”, in the context of this conversation? That can only mean violence… she’s saying the black community already has too much violence at the hands of black men, so they shouldn’t have ARs.

    Personally, I think the movement is stupid. It’s unnecessary, & does nothing but provide horrendous optics for retards like Ms. Lee to point at while they rant. It’s poking a stick in the eye of the opponent when you’re already winning the game. Makes no sense. With that said… I think Dizzy is missing the point. No one is advocating that those violent black men suffering from the “epidemic” she’s referring to have access to let alone open carry ARs. The point is that the millions of law abiding citizens that have been held HOSTAGE in their neighborhoods by those poor “infected” black men who can’t seem to stop pushing drugs and shooting people in the streets… THEY would benefit greatly from being armed. They want to take back their communities. They want their children growing up safe and going to good schools. Ask THOSE people if they feel an AR a good idea.
