Beck says they don’t need a SWAT team to arrest somebody with $300 worth of pot and no criminal history and no weapons. How do they know the suspect doesn’t have any weapons? Plenty of cops have been wounded or killed by “unarmed” civilians. A show of maximum force is needed to ensure the cops can make it home safely.
Sure, like when 8 officers fire over 100 rounds at a truck where they admitted to no identifing their targets and admitted that the occupants performed no illegal act (2 women deliving newspapers). Remember, to date (years later), no officer arrested nor fired for that action AGAINST lawful citizens. So, do you support LEO who breaks the law (fireing indescrimently) and no justice served or are you of the notion that LEO should get a break because of their job?
50 police officers were killed last year, and only one was killed on a raid. And that raid was at the wrong address, no criminal to be found
all they need to do is an old fashioned stakeout, nab the dude when he comes out...not friggin hard. Use time tested, old fashioned police work
If cops want to ensure they make it home safely, why don't they just stay in the station? News flash. Nobody has a guarantee of getting home safely. Priority number 1 for every cop, every day is to make sure he protects the constitutional rights of every citizen he comes into contact with, not to use overwhelming force so he "goes home safely." Cops sign up for the job, they know the risks going in. And, BTW, a construction worker has a far more dangerous job. So, "your" pot dealer might have a gun? Big deal, so does every cop.

As a Christian, Trump has proved again, and again, and again that he believes in the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman — at a time.
Yep, and he's been married 3 times. He 'dated' Marla Maples for 2 years while still married to Ivana. Hummm. I guess since he says he's a christian and you believe him, that is all that matters. What ever happened to righteous indignation of sinners? As long as he says what you want to hear (read panders), that is all that matters. Give me a break. The worst a-hole in the world could talk pretty to most of you, espousing christain values, and you'd fall for it. Pander, pander, pander....that is all it takes to get your votes.

The fact is it doesn’t matter whether Americans can handle firearms responsibly. The right to own and bear arms is a natural human right given by God and enshrined in the US Constitution.

I bet the Norwegians handle this better than the Italians did with the Costa Concordia.

@Munger, Don’t forget changing what our military eats. C rations were good enough for our men in WWII and Korea, but now they’re given MREs. What’s in those MREs? Some think they are dosed with mind-altering drugs to make it easier for the government to use troops against Americans.
So that's what makes the MREs I eat so good. Although, your statement literally means you've never tried one, or you would know that is stupid.

If this isn’t stopped now by electing Christian Conservatives to the House, Senate, White House and Supreme Court, then all of us will be forced into homosexual marriages or to undergo satanic and painful medical procedures to change our gender.
What nonsense. No one is forcing YOU to do anything such thing.
What is happening is that sexual deviants are trying to normalize what they are doing. The only thing we actually ARE being forced to do is "accept" it as normal, and no sinful - which it most certainly is.
why do you think they have been dousing our water with fluoride and other poisons for so long? Why do you think there is such an upsurge in homosexuality and transgenderism? Along with other mental disorders

The gun grabbers use these kind of accidents to try to limit Americans’ 2nd Amendment Rights, which is just dumb. Of course accidents sometimes happen. You might as well say we shouldn’t have wars because civilians are sometimes killed as say we shouldn’t have guns because accidents like this might happen.
Really. As many people die each year in AUTO accidents. I guess the government will start regulating WHEN we can drive, IF we can drive, WHERE we can drive, HOW we can drive, WHY we can drive, etc ...

We need a warrior president like Reagan or Bush who can inspire the nation to invade Iran and the whole Mid-East. Take out their nuclear and all other offensive weapons. Put in dictators who will stay friendly to America and keep the region stable and who will crack down on the Jihadists. We should invade Pakistan too, India would probably help with that.
Reagan a "warrior" President, what a hoot. Yeah, he turned tail in Beirut and attacked the Empire of Grenada to make everybody forget.
Maybe if our CIA had enough brains to stay out of Afghanistan under Carter and Reagan and let the Soviets have the place instead of stirring up all that Muslim fundamentalist garbage, we wouldn't be talking about ISIS now.
Reagan was not a warrior President. What the heck are you talking about?

It could be there’s a problem with Meyer’s divorce being finalized. That happened with Andrew Jackson too.

People, the barbarians are inside the walls, they’re in our streets rioting, burning, looting. The only protection we have is the police, plus those citizens who choose to arm themselves. The police should have every weapon they need to protect law abiding citizens and our Christian Western civilization. This is Not the time to Disarm our Police. Why is Obama doing this? Does he want the barbarians to win? Decide for yourselves.

Hard to believe these are Texans. Probably they mc gangs are from California, or New Mexico, or somewhere else outside of Texas.
I like what Jeb’s saying, but I still won’t vote for him.

Death is too good for this terrorist monster. Torture him for weeks until he dies. Draw and quarter his body. Wrap each of the parts in pig hide and bury them separately in unmarked graves. Video record all of this and put it on the internet so potential terrorists will know what fate awaits anyone who attacks America.

The problem isn’t interpreting the constitution, the problem is the constitution itself which allows those interpretations. The answer is to repeal the current US Constitution and reinstate the Articles of Confederation.
I understand what you are saying @Robert999. However, this government needs to be RESET, period. It is totally out of control and to do what you are saying, will take 2 generations. I would rather see a RESET in my generation. Besides, you will never get the Repubs to do this, even though they themselves are the worst abusers of our Constitution: example, THE PATRIOT ACT, which to me is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL. When Bush brought this about, I CRINGED AND GAGGED. This is what made me turn against Bush and when the Repubs backed him, I wrote down each politician who did so. THEY ARE WORST THAN THE DEMS.
I think this SCOTUS is appalling in their interpretations of everything, such as ObamaCare, the Gay marriage bill they are about to rule on, and abortion, which is murder in the womb. This country is now a 3rd-world country and no one seems to care, except the few of us who pray daily asking for God's mercy on America for our apathy and lack of remorse for our sins as a nation. GOD WILL JUDGE AMERICA HARSHLY because I believe HE gave us this great country and we lost it to Satan.
What we need are RIGHTEOUS men and women with morals on SCOTUS and not cowards who are double-minded, which God says are unstable in all their ways. (JAMES 1:8)
We have lost this country to Satan and I do not believe we will get her back until Jesus comes again. In the meantime, I try to help my fellow man, vote, and participate in the process, but it may be short-lived.
I've become a little bit of an admirer of Lysander Spooner these days.
Either the Constitution has encouraged the government we have now, or it has been powerless to stop it, so the Constitution seems to be a dead letter.

Now it looks like it was human error – the engineer – yet the Commie/Libs are saying we need to spend more than 3 trillion dollars on infrastructure improvements. Of course, that will mean higher taxes for America’s workers who support the millions of non-working mainly minority citizens and illegal aliens the Commie/Libs also want us to pay for.
Robert, not really. Accidents like this are prevented if the speed of the train is regulated by computer, which is what other countries do, and is also done on some trains in the US. It really makes no sense to anymore to have an engineer who is apt to make this mistake.
Computers aren’t infallible, but they’re less likely that people to cause train accidents. But it costs money. I guess you can be glad that House Republicans voted today - yes today - to cut Amtrak funding

I believe there are a few honest politicians. They are Christians and conservatives, like Cruz, Lee, Rand Paul, etc. But I believe all Democrats, liberals, RINOs, and some conservative politicians are dishonest.
May 12, 2015 at 5:38pm
Good. There has been too much criticism of the police lately. If cops feel they are threatened, then they have the right to shoot and kill.
OBL was close to the Saudi royal family – most of the 9/11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia. Bush is close to the Saudi royal family too. (Remember when Bush kissed that guy on the lips?) I wonder if Bush made a deal with the Saudis to leave OBL live safe in Pakistan.
 May 11, 2015 at 9:35am
If heroic men like the seals lied for Obama then it’s over for America. He has corrupted our military.
It's likely the SEALS had no idea what was happening in the higher levels. Their job isn't to ask questions, their job is to carry out the missions they're given.
 May 9, 2015 at 9:13pm
Lindsay is echoing what all RINOs say. How about Republicans stick to their principles, don’t cater to minorities and women and stand up for what’s right. Seal the border, expel illegals, talk common sense to minorities, and follow the Constitution.
