    The problem lies in the premise. She says, I am not that “type” of person, but she comes from a perspective that you can’t be conservative AND care about minorities. They don’t understand that conservatives actually believe that minorities CAN and WILL succeed if given the ability to do so. You cannot have government handouts be the “tool” by which they reach success.

    The ultimate issue is not minority, but in reality it is blacks. Their is a cultural issue which we ignore. The belief that they are always a victim. The belief that ALL whites hate them and therefore they hate the white people. The cultural belief that gangs are the best way to success and every thing the culture looks up to supports that belief. The music promotes always getting revenge and that being disrespected deserves punishment, typically at the end of a gun. The culture has been poisoned and in all honesty I think it is the liberals that promote it. It is sad.

    Going back to the woman. She cannot believe that conservatives who don’t just want to “compassionately” give other peoples money hand over fist to the “underprivileged” black minority could possible have any care about them. It is the premise and is in fact who she is.

    Based on this article alone, the man did not mention what color the GOP congressman’s daughters were. So the logical conclusion is that people should be upset if their daughter, white, black or asian was pregnant by a black man?

    Honestly, I think what he misses is that MOST GOP White people I know who are anti-abortion would be upset if their daughters were pregnant to ANY color man. That doesn’t mean the position isn’t a principled one.

    Experience is important here.

    “While some have heralded the men as heroes for demanding the U.S. flag be respected, others have argued they are hindering the protesters’ right to free speech that soldiers fight and give their lives to protect.”

    Here is the problem, you cannot stand behind something and blast it at the same time. You cannot stand up in a protest and spit on the very symbol of a country for which men fight and die for and then claim that the country they are referring to is horrible and protest against it.

    In other words, I will defend their right to free speech, but I will also defend these guys right to kick their butts as a form of free speech to fix it.

    There are a couple of key metrics to look at;

    1. How many people have signed up?
    2. How many of those did NOT have insurance prior to the law change?
    3. How many people have decided just to pay the fine?
    4. How many people who have signed up are ones which lost their coverage due to the change in what needed to be covered?
    5. What percentage of those enrolled are actually paying into the system and how many are on the gov’t dime due to subsidies?

    It is weird to think this argument has been going on since 1860. The southern states said, I don’t want to be a part of you any more. The US federal government said, it isn’t up to you and forced them to rejoin. Now Crimea and this region want to go back to where they feel like they belong, but some “international law” says they can’t? As long as this happens truthfully and not by coercion, then I am okay with it. If it becomes manipulation and coercion, then I have a problem.

    In case we forget, Austria joined back with Germany and with much fanfare and parades. That does not make what happened illegal by international law, but should make this a flag of concern based on history.

    The Freedom From Religion people have to show me the comment was made in an official capacity to have any say as to whether it should be removed.

    This rapper is nothing but an uncle tom. Oh wait, what he says makes sense. Incredible.

    You cannot glorify something and blame those things for your situation at the same time. Fact, don’t tell kids being a thug is cool, and then blame the white cops for arresting them when they shoot somebody cause they are wearing the wrong color. It is just stupid.

    I have my belief about how the earth started. It takes belief…Fact. I believe in one way, many believe in the other. The problem is and it often is overlooked, both sides of the aisle take an element of belief. In order for the finding from this current study to be accurate, you must first prove that what you are looking at is actually what you say it is.

    The Cosmos show currently on TV is pretty cool, but for them to state as FACT that the Big Bang happened on August 31 4.5 Billion years ago, is just stupid. No one has any idea what date the big bang happened, and cannot conclusively prove it happened at all.

    They need to measure her testosterone level. If it matches that of an average woman…then let her compete. The problem is….that won’t happen. Or, they can let every woman who wants to compete take T supplements whenever they want.

    You see Lance Armstrong gets in trouble for having too high T levels because it gave him an unfair advantage, yet this person has that same advantage and they want us to ignore it.

    While this is not illegal, I think he may need to rethink this strategy. If the book is good, people will buy it. He has a responsibility to “abstain from the appearance” of wrong doing. He needs to look above suspicion…this is not that.

    This could be a slippery slope to somewhere we don’t want to go.

    First, if I have a roommate, my room is still my room. I have no problem with the roommate consenting to search their space, but this….is my space. That I feel you should have my permission to search from me, not from my roommate. I have an expectation of privacy from my own roommate which is why we don’t share a room.

    Second, I worry that the way this particular case worked out could be problematic from policemen who are willing to overstep their boundaries. So you won’t let me search? Okay, you are arrested. Put the person in the cop car….go to the remaining occupant of the house and ask permission to search, I mean the person is already under arrest what can it harm? And for my friends who say…that will never happen….let’s not forget all of the videotapes currently out there with police clearly overstepping their boundaries.

    I think we are seeing a trend here. Cops have authority, but they don’t have open-ended authority. In other words, you have to do what they say….within reason. For instance, you don’t have to do a sexual favor for a cop just because he arrests you and tells you that you must. You have to do all of those things which they are legally allowed to ask you to do….nothing more.

    First, I think it is pretty clear that she will have to testify. You claim innocence and then say you will incriminate yourself if you answer questions? Seems like a disconnect.

    Second, death threats? I want those to be made public. Name the time/place/show the email and prove it first. It wouldn’t surprise me if she did get them. She used her power to intimidate and manipulate people who were against her view on things. Some of those people get angry. Threats, while not right, do happen.

    I think it may already be too late. We are already on the slippery slope. I think the extremely dangerous thing is when the President decides not to enforce something that we all want for his own benefit. How will the Congress react? Honestly, IMO, I think Congress should have all voted that the President doesn’t have the power to delay any aspect of his ACA on any level. You can suggest things to Congress, but Congress makes the laws.

    Interesting article. The sad thing to me is most liberals I know, and by that I mean the rank and file citizen liberal, doesn’t believe any of this is true. They will argue with you it isn’t and in the same breath will probably quote the elites telling them it isn’t true.

    Much like the statement that there is “no hidden agenda to stop debate” by the FCC monitoring, most liberals like lemmings will believe that hook, line, and sinker and at some distant time when the right is jumping up and down that it is happening, will say, no they already told us there was no agenda even as Foxnews is fined until they are out of business.

    I can’t help but wonder if there is more going on here than we know. “We are doing a study” sounds like it very easily could be…we won’t be looking at MSNBC, but Foxnews will be under scrutiny from the gov’t with potential fines for ignoring stories the Gov’t finds important. This is the Main Stream Media version, at least potentially, of the IRS scandal.

    Wait…Korea doesn’t treat their prisoners well? Oh the shock!

    First, I think the order was wrong.

    Second, I think the fact that they were worried about another coordinated attack implies they thought this was more than just about some stupid video. They knew it from the beginning and intentionally lied to the American public to win an election.

    Third, they should have planned better for the anniversary of a major terror event in a place where threats had already been received…not about a video.

    Fourth, I understand their concern about a 2nd location. You could argue that they willingly gave up one place to save maybe 10-15 others. That being said, why could they activate multiple teams. Move one from Tripoli to protect Benghazi, but then move someone from a non-Islamic location to protect Tripoli. they could have AT LEAST made some effort.
