It wasn’t just ok’d by Hillary, it was probably commanded by Hillary. Can’t have anyone connected to her campaign looking like, well, a wiener.

It’s not just the patronizing tone, it’s her using stereotypes to “connect” with blacks. E.g – “I always carry hot sauce in my purse…” Oh, please! Does she put it on the gefilte fish she talks about to her Brooklyn Hassidic constituents? It’s that kind of behavior he’s talking about when he says “she might as well put on blackface.” And he’s absolutely correct.

Who gets to define what is harmful? For example, if you paint your house a raucous purple shade and it “offends” me, can I punish you in some way? How about if I burn your house down – is that punishment suitable or should I have taken a different tack? Who gets to make the final decisions? And based on what standards? Those are just a few of the flaws in your argument.
Libertarianism assumes a common set of values and morals among its participants. The creeping influence of secular humanism has robbed every society of this, so a libertarian society would devolve into either anarchy or totalitarianism pretty quickly.
You may have no religious affinity, but you have to agree that Judaism and the Judaic method of discourse, argument and thought has given western civilization the legal and moral foundation to succeed and grow over the past 5000 years. Even atheists and yes, Muslims, gays and non-whites benefit in societies that embrace Judeo-Christian ethics, because that set of values places human life and the dignity of the individual above all else.
ROSE, "Who gets to define what is harmful?"
Who is defining it now? How is it working out?
Libertarians have many debates about what constitutes harm or not. But the arguments for either side are always based on the principle that no person has the authority to tell another person what he/she can/cannot do so long as it is not harming anyone else.
How many of your fellow human beings are locked in cages right now even though they have not caused harm to anyone? Do you support this?
There can be no doubt about the influence of Christianity on Western Civilization. But there can be no doubt either that Christianity was forced to change - for the better - because of Western Civilization's disagreeing with some biblical doctrines as well. The method of discourse, argument, and thought used to do this came more from secular reasoning than from the church and its doctrines.
"Judeo-Christian ethics, because that set of values places human life and the dignity of the individual above all else."
If that is so then why do these ethics discount the individual to be left alone to think and live as he/she sees fit so long as they are not preventing others from doing the same?
ROSE, "a libertarian society would devolve into either anarchy or totalitarianism pretty quickly."
Why would it?
Totalitarianism cannot exist under the principle that each individual has a right to be left alone so long as they are not harming anyone else. Totalitarianism only exists in the form of government and what is government? It is nothing less than a gun to the head telling people what they can and cannot do whether or not they are harming someone else. Is this Just?
Pretty naive rosendude. Freedom has to be worth defending. Don't kid yourself. They'll get the opportunity to decide if somebody else's freedom to jack off on their front lawn on the route of the local "kids day" parade is worth dying for. Whatta you think the answer will be? Ethics make cowards of all who ascribe to theim as their nature changes with the desires of the individual. Morals, adherent principles that have a positive frame of reference external to this life, such as those some religions provide, are what allow that. What will a libertarian military be like? I guess you imagine they won't need one. Yeah, imagine, cause that's all it'll be, imaginary. Soon as that place has anything worth taking there'll be people there ready to take it and very few people based on mere ethics will rise to defend "it" because "it" is all it is.

So true – that’s one of the things that make Christians and the concept of Christianity appear weak. The people who preach “forgiveness” and “nonjudgement” permit everything – which goes against most of what Judeo-Christian doctrine advocates FOR.
He knew that he would not get any harder sentence if they were dead and there was the chance that he could get away if they were murdered.
White lives don't matter?

Because Obama saw fit to comment – before any information or facts were established – when blacks were the alleged “victims” of police brutality and / or racial profiling. Let him justify the actions of his peeps when they are involved in this kind of real, unabashed violence. He has a lot to answer for, as he has emboldened blacks to perpetrate violence against whites.

Dolly is shrewd enough to keep her opinions to herself. I suspect that she is more in tune with Trump and his message, given that she is an entrepreneur and her husband a builder. She just knows enough about the media and her fan base not to make any statements that could ruffle feathers.
Sadly Dolly thinks men should be able to go in to women's bathrooms. She is actually quite liberal.
What Missile said, she's long been an advocate for LGBTQRST "rights".
I know a few people who've run into her here in Nashville, and she's apparently genuinely quite nice and appreciative of her fans though.
I'm an East Tennessean. Good to meet a fellow southerner always.
So, you are saying, she is smarter than "The Dixie Chicks"? LOL
Who gives a rat's ass what she thinks. So securing our borders, enforcing the law and keeping psychopathic muslums out of our country is extreme. Right, gotcha Dolly. Oh and bringing jobs to America and getting the American people back to work. Yep. 10-4 Dolly you idiot.
Mil-Dot - Maybe, she is an idiot, but I bet she can spell Muslim.
She was for Obama, both elections...

One of the benefits of being five months short of leaving here is I don’t worry too much about politics,” Obama told reporters ….” Judging by Obama’s overall performance, it doesn’t appear he worried too much about anything for the past 8 years.
“I guarantee you, nobody on this block, none of those first responders, nobody gives a hoot whether you’re a Democrat or Republican.” That’s right, Obama. They don’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. But they do care if you SHOW UP. You had to be shamed into it – 8 days late and several dollars short. I guess all of that partying at Marthas’ Vineyard got the better of you.
Are you inferring that there is a difference between a “drug dealing group” and Black Lives Matter? I would venture that in most cases, they are one and the same.

But until she wins, let those donations roll in, brother!

The one reason Trump is like George Wallace is that Wallace understood that the Democrat party as a whole disenfranchised many of its supporters – white, blue collar union types supported Wallace for president in large numbers. Trump understands that the RINOs in the Republican party have disenfranchised most of its voting block as well. And both have trumpeted states’ rights over massive federal powers. Of course, what neither Lemon nor this other dude admit to is that when Wallace was governor of Alabama, many of his initiatives helped blacks immensely. He provided more funding for black schools, garnering the vote of many BLACK school teachers who were able to furnish their students with new textbooks and supplies. His road funding initiatives paved the roads so that BLACK sharecroppers and farmers could get their crops to market at the optimal time, creating more prosperity among black landowners and allowing them to compete head to head with white farmers. So when it comes to governance, Wallace was much better for the black community as a whole than BHO.

This “bold prediction” doesn’t seem to have much basis in reality. For one thing, Donald Trump has never played anything to lose. If he does have a Plan B – that of creating his own media empire – that is just what it is, a way to leverage the money he’s spending on this campaign into something that has value. That’s called “smart business.” How many professional politicians have alternatives in the private sector, other than to become K Street lobbyists or college professors (and bad ones at that, judging by Al Gore’s history.) Secondly, Trump is making an effort to hire the best of the best in terms of advisors – Larry Kudlow is one of his economic advisors, and he’s gained quiet support from many former military people in order to shore up his understanding of foreign policy. That doesn’t sound like a slacker to me. The man actually looks at resumes and accomplishments, not at “who donated the most to whom,” which seems to be Shrillary’s selection criteria. I boldly predict that Glenn Beck will end up with massive egg on face for the next 8 years. And that’s based on past and current history.
The jack-ass made the prediction not ong ago that Trump would win. I like his new prediction better, Beck is always wrong.

You have to parse the words: “There is currently no known evidence…” In other words, the evidence of her unfitness has been buried. The fact that she has to be held up in order to step up to a podium, she has had numerous falls, one known concussion and is continually under the surveillance of a man carrying what appears to be an injectable medication should make anyone question her physical condition.

Obama is a double-racist. His black half hates the Cajuns and his white half hates the blacks. Baton Rouge is pretty well screwed if they’re looking for any help from Teh Won.

Yup – the Rodney King thugs tried to burn and loot Korean-owned businesses. The business owners holed up in their shops with guns and ammo – and took care of the rioters in short order. Of course See-BS’ “60 Minutes” tried to make the business owners look like the bad guys, but normal people cheered them on.

Drugs have been part of “the ‘hood” since the 1920s. Black organized gangsters peddled them there – the Mafia looked down on druggies and dealers, so that territory (along with the numbers racket, or “policy”) was wide open. Nixon had nothing to do with it – blacks prey on their own pretty routinely.
 August 15, 2016 at 4:56pm
So, Milwaukee rioters are protesting a black police officer (who was wearing a body cam and photo’ed the entire encounter) shooting a black thug – and manifesting their anger by targeting white people. Butt – they ain’t racists, they’s just misunderstood yutes. Someone needs to remind them it isn’t 1969 any more – and white people in the suburbs will shoot back. Just sayin’….
