    If you’re defending the parents, please read a real news story:

    When you have parents who allow a 4-year-old kid to wander freely, no amount of “warning signs”, cautions or government regulations will prevent what happens. Had they done the same thing at the mall, you would be reading about a pedophile snatching the kid, a driver in the parking lot running him over or a wall of merchandise falling down on him.

    You forget two things here – 1) the gorilla is one member of an endangered species, and 2) the kid willfully entered its territory. While I understand the impetus to save the child’s life, I also have an issue with killing an animal that is acting like an animal whose territory has just been invaded. This was a situation that the zoo staff / administration was not prepared to deal with, and everyone and everything involved ended up losing.

    Or why not keep hold of a kid in an area that is potentially dangerous to him / her? And for God’s sake, why not video the whole event so you can post it on Fakebook instead of getting emergency personnel involved immediately? Good job, parents! Good job.

    What in the name of Sam Hill is an “unnecessary mistake.”? How many mistakes ARE necessary – especially in an alleged documentary or news story? Katie Couric regrets getting caught – as NBC personnel are so often wont to do – and getting called out on a national scale. Her blatant biases are no longer able to be hidden.

    What are the GDPs of any of those countries? How many technological innovations have come from Norway, Sweden or Denmark? And guess what – have you noticed that the immigration policies of the three Scandinavian countries you and Bernie tout so much are on par with Trump’s “no immigration none of the time” stance? They are – Norway has a policy that if you immigrate and can’t speak the language after 5 years, you get deported back to your home country. They don’t allow layabouts to sponge off their welfare system. If we had the same policies, California would be cleared out in a heartbeat, the cost of running multilingual educational programs would be eliminated and there would be no “press 2 for Spanish” on any telephone menu board. Maybe socialist countries DO have something to teach us.

    The left will blame it on fracking, which drove the price of oil down.

    Political advantage or financial advantage? Think how much money Sanders has been raising – on and off the books. Obama is pretty easy to buy and may well be on the take from Sanders, whose ideology is right up Obama’s marxist alley. I can see Sanders bribing the O (or ValJar, who would do anything for a buck) to sideline Clinton, as he knows the super-PAC system is working against him.

    You mean the GWB who was a “stupid cowboy” fooled the smartest woman on the planet, Hillary KKKlinton? So, how dumb does that make HER? Still support Democrats? How dumb does that make YOU?

    ” … what they actually do is never really that bad … . It’s always how they handle it,” Maher explained. So in Bill’s feeble mind, the lies, corrupt practices and anti-American activities are fine, but how Hillary tries to cover up for them is what creates the problem. Or maybe Trump has Hillary pegged accurately with his nickname, and the original behavior IS the problem. Maher and Harris-Perry just revealed more about themselves with their statements. And I wouldn’t do business with either one without getting paid up front and in full.

    Trump has it right here. The drought is another liberal-man-caused-disaster. The snow melt may have been limited for the past four years, but Cali’s water issues have been going on ever since the EPA, USDA and other government alphabet agencies decided that dams and streams were under their regulation. And of course, no good left-leaning Californian would ever consent to building a desalinization plant in THIER neighborhood, despite the vast coastline and access to nearly limitless ocean water that could accomodate much of the population and irrigate desert areas as happens in Israel.

    And the part about gang activity usually includes an interview with Mama that reads, “My boy was just turnin’ his life around.” And the banger will be described as an “honor student.”

    Legislation doesn’t create jobs – entrepreneurs with ideas do. Legislation actually prevents job creation, as it protects those who have no drive to innovate or grow from competition. That’s why the stock market does well under Democrats – the large cap companies LOVE the fact that small caps and uber-small businesses have more hurdles to climb over, and the LC’s know they can pass along the cost of that legislation to the customers. Legislation restricts choice and options (can you say “Obamacare”?) and increases profits without materially adding value for the crony class.

    Many of Disney’s employees are also transient – college kids, snowbirds, etc. – so living in a hotel / motel makes more sense than buying a permanent residence in a resort town. As a whole Disney’s GDP is greater than the sum of that of the state of Vermont, so even tho’ Iger is a Hillary Clinton Dem, he has a point.

    You may be factually correct, but who most vilified the Catholic church but Hollywood? When the same things were occurring in its back yard, Hollywood’s agendized programming (movies and television) made all seriously religious people out to be perverts, murderers, thieves, etc. The act of pedophilia isn’t partisan, but the protection of pedophiles (and other pervs) sure is.

    Funny that the native woman was more offended by Trump’s nickname for Warren rather than Warren’s lying about her affiliation to one of the tribes. We hear so much about “cultural appropriation” – Warren outright lied about being a native. Why not invite Elizabeth to live on one of the reservations, so she can really embrace her heritage? I’d love to see her in a single-wide living in the Four Corners region with the Navahoes.

    It takes an Asian reporter to ask the questions the American press corpse won’t. See why outsourcing is necessary?

    Um, James, the overwhelming violence and murders are happening largely in cities with Democrats as the elected officials. The reason there is “massive indifference” is because those same Dems don’t WANT you to notice – so murders are reclassified as much as possible as suicide, accidental death, etc. or just not reported on by the wishy-washies in the media who close ranks on their own. Just ask the new Dem mayor of Inpls if that isn’t so, or Mayor Rahm in Chicago. His efforts fell pretty flat as Chi-town’s murder rate has surpassed last year’s by a blue streak.

    @Mcsledge – it’s not that the kids will be joining unions. It’s that unions by and large use “minimum wage” as the basis for indexing their OWN wage demands. The higher minimum wage goes, the higher union wages go, becuz of course “union workers are worth MORE than just minimum wage.” And with Bernie Sanders’ advocacy of punishing US corporations that offshore work and forcing businesses to keep a certain amount in the US, that guarantees massive, rampant inflation as though we were seeing yet another incarnation of Jimmeh Cawtuh.
