You obviously know nothing about Seperation of Powers at the State level. The cities you list have DECADES of liberal do-nothing-politicians who have added to the sociological/financial problems of their communities. Republican governors can EVENTUALLY have a positive effect, but years and years of Democrat NEGLECT takes years and years to correct.
As a primary example, just take a look at Detroit! Dems and liberals had control of that city until they ran it right into the ground, much the way Chicago and Baltimore are going. Not even a good try, David.
I will say it over and over again, no one except conservative white people fears the law under this pharaoh. She will walk but unfortunately not a"perp walk. Needed, deserved but never happen. Gosh, I hope I'm wrong!

‘Great to see a Christian speak up for his faith. Denzel Washington is a REAL man.
He probably wont be invited back after that but he told them the truth
I only have one thing in common with Denzel Washington. We were both raised up in a Pentecostal Church and the truth we learned there is ingrained in us
I'll never forget reading how he visited some resource for families of soldiers rehabilitating from grave injuries. He calmly, humbly took out a pen and wrote a check for the home. No call for recognition no call for glory. He just did what he thought was right. And I so respect him for that. God bless you Denzel
Thank you, Mr. Washington. Nice to see Christians speaking out and unafraid. Can we have more, please!
Which comes first?
“And while you’re down there, say thank you. Thank you for grace, thank you for mercy, thank you for understanding, thank you for wisdom, thank you for parents, thank you for love, thank you for kindness, thank you for humility, thank you for peace, thank you for prosperity. Say thank you in advance for what’s already yours.”
Does one REQUIRE a god-belief to comprehend when THANKS are warranted???
Given the opportunity
Thankful JUST when you are given the opportunity to be...
Do we truly 'accept' others AND afford them ALL the same Freedoms and Liberties we seek to afford ourselves - ORrrrrrr....
Do we not?
Sorry folks but this is my new KEY question...
Which do you value more?
Freedom of SPEACH?
Freedom of RELIGION?
Frankly... I do not believe we can have both occupy the same TOP level.
One must take precedent above the other.
If Freedom of religion...
If god belief is of greater 'value' then...
Then I and no one else can speak as freely as we should be able to against any god belief.
[Monk: Tell me how you don't believe in belief. PLEASE!!! Anyway... Sorry.]
IF a god's 'voice' is valued higher / above man's Freedom of Speech then...
We all know who... "wins".
Say it with me...
My god (belief) is better than your god (belief).
My god is better than your god.
My god is better than yours...

Denzel at Obama's inauguration
Keep the accolades coming now folks.
Denzel is one of very few actors that has always appeared to me to be authentic. He truly is a humble man who stays out of the limelight.
I wish we would see more of this kind of message from him. It would be refreshing to see him in Ferguson or Baltimore instead of people like Sharpton.
Just like in the great movie, The Book of Eli, Denzel stands tall. Saw a video of Dr. Carson when he was younger; he could have played Denzel!

This is a magnification of the problem of Barack Hussein Obama, a liberal president with no leadership skills, telling the United States’ armed services how to conduct the war against Islamo-terrorists. In the Baltimore case, Rawlings-Blake, a liberal mayor with no leadership skills, telling the officers to “stand down,” having no concept of the ramifications of her idiotic order.

I turned in my observations to the Inspector General of the VA, but it was simply given a number and filed away. No one ever contacted me.

I think you are being too simplistic in your assertion based on only a token few veterans with whom you are familiar.
in defense of myself, I did say "in part," and I just think its sad that this guy couldn't get a claim approved because maybe, some other guy filed a claim stating the tip of his index finger is numb.
I had a right upper lobectomy and received a 30% disability for it. People with Sleep Apnea; which nothing to do with their service are getting 50%. Just use the buzz word of the day. Today it is Range of Motion, two guys I know, younger than me by 20 years; and in better health are getting 80 & 90 % (One is now in the Reserves with his 80%). He is not being too simplistic, it is happening.

For three years, I began to lose weight unexpectedly and I went from 165 down to 120 pounds. After giving me an eight month wait to see a doctor at the Phoenix VA Hospital, I finally went to the VA Emergency and they let me see a doctor… in fact, I saw about eight of them. I underwent every test they had and not one of the doctors found anything, though they all (and I, too) suspected some type of cancer.
Finally, in desperation, I went to a private physician. After listening to my heart through her stethoscope, she told me that I had a distinct heart murmur. A follow up with a cardiologist confirmed her diagnosis, and I was told that I needed to have my aortic valve replaced immediately. On December 1st, I had a bovine aortic valve inserted in my heart and four days later I was released with no restrictions on activities or diet. I have regained my appetite and already I am up to 140 pounds.
There is no doubt in my mind that the VA Hospital system, as currently in use, is NOTHING MORE than a place for veterans to go to die. Their doctors are either old and not up to modern testings and procedures, or they are young foreign doctors with little experience in American medicine.
I am alive today ONLY because I went outside the VA system.
That is a very sad story. I'm glad you are OK now.
Thank you for your service and glad you are doing better!
richauthor- You need to be in front of congress right now with your story or better yet on the blaze show !! Blaze get a hold of this guy/woman.
Your case is not unique. The VA needs to be abolished and each vet given a card that can be used for any doctor and any hospital...where they can be treated. Thanks for your service.
My uncle, a vet, was having some breathing issues. I told him he had cardiomegaly, after listening to his heart and feeling the rhythm of his pulse and that he needed to go to the VA to get checked up.
He did and they wanted to do a colonoscopy on him.
He finally got bad enough that he went to a private hospital ER, got the AICD he needed and now he is better. I wouldn't go to the VA and I am a vet as well.
RICH: "...Their doctors are either old ... or they are young foreign doctors ..."
Or, as in my case at the VA here in Nashville — which is a teaching hospital — a bunch of residents (interns) who constantly misdiagnose me with their best guess!
Want to see a lot of doctors in a hurry? Pass out on a golf course.
I'm glad you are alive! Why did you wait so long? All these stories make me sad, but it's YOUR LIFE and you have to take care of your own health. It really isn't the VA's responsibility, even though it is their job and their mandate and their (broken) promise to you. Nobody else lives in your skin or cares about your health as much as you can and should.

How can we expect more from a man who has never worked a day in his life, has never paid a cent of his own undergraduate and post-graduate education, and has repeatedly misused the American presidency?
I can only pray that some how, we can stop this ill-mannered, narcissis, Marxist, Muslim,anti-police officer and anti-military, and confirmed liar before America perishes while the RINOs snooze.
Obtaining the name of the rapist… even in cases where the victim declines to prosecute or testify, is a MAJOR factor in taking serial rapists down. I was a very successful sex crimes investigator for many years because I was able to convince hesitant victims to come forward and name their attackers, despite their fears of retribution.
Occasionally, I would encounter a victim who did not want to name OR prosecute the rapist. My approach was that I was able to convince them by explaining that their attacker had probably already raped someone else, and that if he was successful THIS time (in not being prosecuted), he would undoubtably rape again. Sure enough, when the assailant was named, often times it turned out that we actually had been looking for him for other rapes, without knowing his name. And we were able to arrest, prosecute, and put him away for a very long time.

This slimy collection of protoplasm is responsible (as the DNC Chair) for foisting Barack Hussein Obama on the United States. If anyone would know what un-Democratic means, it is him.

No doubt that Obama official knows very little about Benjamin Netanyahu. They couldn’t possible call him anything other than tough if they really knew him. Netanyahu entered the military in 1967 during the Six Day War. He led Commandos in raids into anti-Israeli territories and was shot in the shoulder. Compared to our president, Netanyahu is a Superman.

Yes… it is hard to believe that 99% of the police could be in the right. But they are. These are the people that put their lives on the line for you, keg329. They are the ones that keep depraved criminals away from you and yours. They do their job because they know that if they did not, NO ONE would be safe. As hard as it is for you to understand, they do their jobs mostly quietly, and for a less than average wage. When they are heard of, it is because they either stopped a criminal or a criminal stopped them. Thank God that in this case, it was the criminal to be stopped. Officer Wilson was doing EXACTLY what you pay him to do. He was attacked by a criminal who challenged his authority, and while acting lawfully, Officer Wilson used the minimum deadly force in ending both crime and criminal. Case closed.
Riiiight. Human nature says it isn't possible for 99% of a population to be perfect. I recall Colorado having a police crisis years ago when they made it a law that they couldn't carry a gun if they committed domestic violence. Police in general, have a high rate of domestic violence. Colorado had a police shortage as a result.
Police Have a Much Bigger Domestic-Abuse Problem Than the NFL Does
Police domestic violence nearly twice average rate
Cops Beat Their Wives & Girlfriends At Double The National Rate, Still Receive Promotionshttp://thefreethoughtproject.com/cops-beat-wives-girlfriends-double-national-rate-receive-promotions/#4CIHA5Y1wTp3MXEy.99
Forty Percent of Police Families Experience Domestic Violence
Google stats on police committing domestic violence. 40% of police beat the crap out of their wives/girlfriends.
That made me laugh pretty hard. It makes for an interesting mental picture of an enormous bubble with human features painted on it.

I don’t know… maybe I’m seeing things, but has anyone else noted that the evil scourge in the cover photo, looks suspiciously like an elephant… symbol of the GOP? He’s headed left to right and his eye is aligned above the apex of the Washington Monument.

Julia Pierson is an inept, lying administrator. She is also as dumb as a box of rocks. God help us from all the idiots in the federal government.

Beckel is a slovenly liberal, so fat that his words are nothing more than garbled grunts. Like Obama, everything political is fine with Beckel… it doesn’t matter to either of them that this country is going down the tubes. When all four of the Five co-hosts get together to skewer Beckel and his prescious Obama, fatso simply melts down and curses and threatens. I predict that he will be the first person to croak during a televised meltdown.
