Calling those who disagree with your position morons must get you far in converting folks to considering your position. Fact is, if this man had not resisted he wouldn’t have been put into a choke hold. Also you do have a recourse if you are treated unfairly or in a rough manner, you can file a complaint with the department or with other agencies. You will not come out a winner if you take your fight to the street and this fight involves a police officer. having said that, I do not think that this man should have been allowed to choke to death. When he said he couldn’t breath the police officer should have lessened the pressure. But once again all of this could have been averted if he had just followed police instructions and been friendly while doing it.
Who called anyone who disagreed with me "morons"; are you able to read a paragraph without twisting it to your own satisfaction? Yes, I believe the police officer, who was disciplined for disobeying his own departmental policies on choke holds, was wrong; but not criminally wrong; there is a difference. But do you really believe that Eric was innocent in not complying with the police officer to put hand cuffs on him? You will end up like many Americans who disobey the law and tragically end up dead. The police officer was clearly not trying to hurt the man, but sadly, ended up doing so; but only because Eric refused to submit to the authorities in the first place; you state this yourself. You can question their motives in court before a judge. That is the only thing that makes sense, and averts senseless violence.
I thought he died of a heart attach due to the stress of moment he created.

To bend light like that I would have to imagine that there is two prism lenses and a mirror suspended above.

It’s 2014 and time to disband the racist organization in our Congress called the “Congressional Black Caucus”.

As bad as George Bush was, he was still miles ahead of the current White House occupant. The “miss me yet?” postings are really directed towards those who claimed that Bush was the worst you could do.

The fair housing act should have required that this housing be provided in their gated communities and mansions. They should also have allowed these people free membership to their country clubs and spas.

No he is not the one who defrauded every citizen. He is the guy who is telling his like minded Liberals the ugly truth. By the way, he may have been the guy in the back kitchen trying to put together a **** cake for Americans to consume, but Obama and Democrats are the ones who ordered said cake and then forcibly pushed it onto American citizens who had in polls voiced that they did not want to buy and eat it.

What gets me is that this guy went out of his way to word the law in such a way that it could not be considered a tax, but then Liberal Justices and Roberts passed it at the Supreme Court because they claimed that it was a tax.
Because those men, rule over you. They couldn't care less about the "law" being anything other than their will.

Historically this is not the first time we have been at this same crossroad. Fortunately the pendulum always swings back in the opposite direction after it crests. I only hope that we do not resort to feeding Christians to animals or battles in arenas before this happens. Our kids have been indoctrinated and hedonism is all the rage today, but eventually people will see the costs of immoral behavior and societal destruction.
NO. We are living in the last days; it will get worse and worse.
"eventually people will see the costs of immoral behavior and societal destruction."
Let us pray!
I share your fear that Americans will start feeding people to animals because of their religious beliefs. You sound really smart and I would like to hear more of your wisdom.

I disagree. Color or gender should not matter anymore, except to the racists and the race baiters (I know they are still racists). I do think that since being first at something plays out well for parties, it would be nice if we were to bring in the first woman President, though I hate putting people in place only to make such a point. What worries me about Mr. Carson is that I don’t know enough about him. Everything I have heard so far sounds good, but every time I get excited about some new and emerging Republican he always compromises his values, or I find out it was an act all along. The one person I am convinced is the real deal is Cruz, but I am concerned about his duel citizenship and not sure how that will play out.

I am amazed that they didn’t also cover what Bob did towards the end of this very same show. Jessie Waters was plugging two Fox shows and Bob attacked him for it, implying that the shows shouldn’t be watched. How can this clown be employed by Fox and at the same time attacking Fox? He does this all the time to shows and other Fox employees. He constantly attacks O’riley, Krauthammer and many others. Also Bob! Why is your nose running all the time?! For gods sake when you are on I wish my television wasn’t high definition.
There is nothing wrong with being a black man. There is definitely something wrong with being a race baiter.

What angers me the most about Mr. Beckel is the fact that he personally attacks everyone including his co-hosts. He likes to claim that anyone who differs from him politically is stupid, is not credible or is dishonest. He insults, smears and at times even physically threatens those who dare to hold an opposing view. On one episode, live on the air, he called the CEO of Barilla Pasta company “A Homophobic Son of a Bitch!” because the CEO dared to state that he would not be paying for commercials that depicted same sex couples because he was running a family company. Bob is the perfect spokesman for depicting the Liberal Left in an unflattering light, but his time has come, if Fox news wants to keep this show relevant they need to get a Liberal that can convey the lefts position with class and intelligence.
We'll never really know, or be able to prove how much influence Bob had in the destruction of the DNC in the last election. However, it is safe to assume, he was not "a plus" for the Democrats.

The people who would have done the required digging were branded as too extreme for the party and purged by the Establishment. The country club good ole boys club will make sure that real Conservatives do not make any waves this time.
Quid pro quo for the pendulum swing; again and again. It get's really, really old.
I know my congressman well enough that he told me in a one on one conversation a few years ago that there were only about 30 or 40 members of the House of Representatives that actually gave a damn about the country. I was skeptical of that comment; however, I have learned just how right he is.

Maybe they should spend less money on Muslim outreach programs and more on rocket science and research.
maybe the republicans were the ones who stopped funding NASA
NASA didn't launch the rocket. They outsourced it to private companies. I am glad they did, however, we can't blame NASA for the launch failure.
From the article.
"NASA is paying the Virginia-based Orbital Sciences and the California-based SpaceX company to keep the space station stocked in the post-shuttle era."
"Orbital Sciences Corp.’s unmanned rocket blew up over the launch complex at Wallops Island, Virginia,"

Very good article. Thank you Matt.

She studied the Quran before deciding to become a Muslim? Did she omit the parts about killing Jews and Infidels?
