At least Trump’s fall back answer is “let the States decide.” That’s the right answer from the Fed’s point of view. The fact that “he doesn’t know yet” is is actual answer is unsettling. There’s no evidence so far the Trump’s going to “let the States decide” anything for themselves, once he makes up his mind.
The best answer is to let private businesses decide for themselves. Let local governments decide for public rooms in their jurisdiction. If their decisions are poor, they will suffer for it and the free market will sort it all out.
But what it really does is show that Trump has no principles whatsoever. He's just like any other politician. He changes with the wind for the sole purpose of getting elected.
Exactly, Miz. If he has any guiding principles, and I use the term loosely with him, it is probably money, power and sex. Beyond that he has no clue that some of us hold to foundational beliefs that direct our lives, like faith, family, country, truth, honor, justice, etc.
Did I mention sanctity of marriage?

The people stumping for $15 minimum wages (the people with any actual clout, that is) don’t give a damn about the people earning that wage or the jobs that they have. Many of them will invest in the robots that replace them, all the while saying how awful they are.
Increasing the minimum wage will raise the cost of living, shrink the middle class downward, and grow the welfare state. That’s what they want – more power to the central government.

“This is like a high school kid complaining that he got a Lexus instead of a Lamborghini.”
Was he told it was a Lamborghini? Did his pop, to garner favor and seem more generous, tell the neighborhood he got his kid a Lamborghini? It’s not the end amount that is the issue, it’s the lying about the end amount for the the front-page headline then offering a retraction on the back page weeks later.
Was Trump mislead about the amount or did he know all along?
Exactly, and this "SEAL" is awful quick to write the rules on how veterans should act. He speaks for himself, not for us.

Because I don’t buy into “end of the world is nigh” prophecy, I hate my parents? My mother seems like such a nice woman, too. She’ll be devastated.
WWII was 70 years ago. That’s 3.5 generations born since it ended – Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials, and now Millennials are starting to have kids. Last I checked, we weren’t living 120 years anymore.
 May 24, 2016 at 1:01pm
Every generation has seen these signs. WWII was just about a dead ringer for most of them. The world is still here.
The point is, it doesn’t matter. What does matter is your own life and how you live it. In this way, your generation is the last – for you. We will each die and rarely do we get a clue as to when. Be prepared. Regardless of when the World itself ends, you, yourself will certainly end before too long. That’s the end you need to be concerned with.
WW2 was less than 120 years ago. I think you're using the progressive version of “generation” instead of the Genesis version. You know, the progressives, that hate their parents so much that they have to distinguish themselves from their parents in any way imaginable, especially by rejecting the values they were taught.
Don't confuse the return of Jesus with the world ending. This world is not ending according to scripture.

Wear the uniform appropriate for the event and your position therein.
Obviously that box can not exist any more cause you can not ask that question on a job application if you’re a convicted felon.
And this does appear to be his job.

The bottom line for me is that the guilty deserve to be punished. More often than not, we can’t be certain beyond even an unreasonable doubt who committed the crime, so we weigh the evidence and attempt to dispel the reasonable doubts before convicting and punishing.
When you know beyond certainty that a person is guilty, but seek to get them acquitted, you are not pursuing justice. I’m not saying that it should be illegal to defend the guilty or that those who do should be punished by the state, just saying that anyone who helps the guilty go free is a terrible person.
May 18, 2016 at 11:48am
It’s hard to even imagine what I would do or want to do if that happened to me – especially if I was willfully framed as opposed to some persecutor just getting the evidence wrong.
I’d like to think I could forgive a mistake. I hope I could forgive willful wrong-doing. I hope I never find out.
 May 18, 2016 at 10:13am
There is not a shadow of doubt in my mind that knowingly aiding the guilty in getting away without punishment or restitution is not only immoral, it is down-right evil.
Everyone is entitled to a defense because we must be sure they are, in fact, guilty, before punishing them. It is indeed better that a guilty person avoid punishment than an innocent be punished, but that does not relieve anyone of their duty to truth and justice.
There is certainly a place for mercy, as well, where the guilty are not punished. But mercy is for the repentant, not those who deny their wrong-doing.

“Our system of justice is based on the theory that we hope and pray that innocent people are never convicted, and the price we pay is that guilty people sometimes do and will go free.”
That is our system and how it MUST operate if we are to be free of tyranny.
But any person who knowingly helps the guilty go free be DAMNED.
Valid point; however, even a person “known” to be guilty is entitled to a defense. This ensures that the state is held to the high standard of proof that we demand in such cases.
I don't think it's necessarily immoral to provide legal representation to a person you "know" to be guilty; though I personally would find it quite difficult.
After anything leather gets wet or soaked in blood, it always shrinks up smaller.
Get that glove wet and warm it will fit OJ's hand perfectly.
Has OJ found the real murder yet?
As much as we're pretty convinced he did kill his wife, I couldn't imagine the torment of those that are wrongfully imprisoned. I've seen some of these guys in jail for nearly a 3rd of a century come out and forgive those that wrongfully imprisoned them. I don't know if that is something I could do, or if I would become the monster they originally accused me of being in revenge against them. Our justice system is rather messed up, but I think that it is the best that can be managed with flawed and corrupt human beings running it.
term : Odd since the Obama people have ushered in the Trial By MSM Era . Do we still need a judicial system when Big Brother in the White House and his MSM militias control the information and the people ?
In the end, they (the evil doers) will get what they have coming. Karma is a beautiful thing, a universal law.
Maybe it this wasn't the Socialist Republic of California, either Ron or Nicole would have been carrying and been able to shoot the perp. Would have been pretty easy to ID the perp at that point, and saved all of us a LOT of trouble and taxpayer money.
Kelly has clearly lost it. She has left the realm of real news reportage and entered the world of sensationalism. She has become a slave to her own ratings and that is really too bad. There was no reason to ask this question in such a rude and abrupt manner, just as there was no reason to 'attack' Trump. The reason often stated, that 'the people need and want these questions to be asked' just doesn't wash. It is the duty of real journalists to take those questions and phrase them in such a manner that the question does not reveal the questioners personal agenda. Kelly used to understand that.
The friggin gloves were made of leather. Leather shrinks and becomes hard after getting wet from things like BLOOD, which is mostly made of water. And, I'm sure, after they took blood samples from them that they washed them with water, and just let them set out to dry which shrinks them significantly. So, of course they didn't go on easy after the shrinkage. I have owned similar looking black leather gloves that have gotten wet. I like my gloves snug, like their my second skin, but comfortable, not too tight. After they have gotten wet and dried out, I had to force them on again and flex and stretch my hands to rework the leather back to the size and softness they were prior to getting wet and drying out. Him trying on those gloves during the trial are just the same thing I went through to get my shrunk gloves back on again. The prosecution should have done an experiment in advance to blow their argument away on that claim.
yeah, I'm sure he's really worried about being damned.
“Our system of justice” is anything but just. Need proof? Two Words;
as a defense atty,, this is why I rarely ask "are you guilty?" of my client. If my client lies thereafter on the stand,, I must withdraw. As for Shapiro, et.al.,, I opined that O.J. was going to be found innocent after Robert Cardashian (sp?) was the unsung hero for the defense. It likely was RC that sent the Urban League to protest/advise D.A. Garcetti, to make sure that O.J.'s Grand Jury pool came out of LA instead of Brentwood. (petit jury pool comes out of the same venue as the grand jury pool),, People living in LA have a remarkably different experience with law enforcement than that of those who live in Brentwood (as you might imagine).
Try not to gripe about the defense in the O.J. case,, the A.D.A.'s didn't do much of a job,,, they were clearly outworked/outfoxed. If you believe in "Karma",,, O.J. got his "kickback" with the civi
judgment and later his armed robbery/burglary convictions. He'll die in the can.
I thought he said "Where's the white women?"
If the jurors of Mississippi's Emmett Till trial could hear you now, my golly now wouldn't that be a hallelujah!
That cork sucker really parsed that belief didn't he. In reality, the imbecile should've made sure OJ got a fair trial, not get him off of something he is most certainly guilty of doing, via parlor tricks.
One day Mr. Shapiro will stand before the Judge of the universe.
Let’s see how well he does then…
Yup, and Shapiro and his "dream team" got a nice chunk of money! THAT'S what it's really all about!
The man did his job; it was the jury that failed Justice.
And here I thought attorney-client privilege was suppose to last a lifetime...
black athlete privilege
Tragically, what goes around, comes around. Sadly Shapiro has paid dearly. His 24 year old son would die about 10 years after the OJ acquittal of a drug overdose.
My son served 27 months as an Army captain in Iraq, and is now a county prosecutor. His goal is not scalp collecting, but tiring to ensure that justice is served. You are innocent until proven guilty and defendants deserve effective counsel.
I wish our juries had the third option permitted in Scotland, which is "insufficient evidence to establish guilt". In other words, the defendant is not found innocent, but guilt has not been established.
I think OJ was guilty.
Hillary laughs when she gets child rapists off lightly. And she will laugh when she gets the whitehouse because of the 'never trump' folk.
Shapiro's a dirty rat... I'm not 100% certain sure, but he has to a liberal!

I got no opinion on Krystal, but, um, yeah, Conservatives like free trade. Free, open markets are what drive innovation that improves our lives and generates wealth. What “hurts the American worker” most is unwarranted government interference to force us to buy goods at too high a price with too little competition. With protectionist government in place, wealth creation stagnates and we get inflation leading to lower living standards for those American workers you would seem to champion.
***** most is unwarranted government interference to force us to buy goods at too high a price with too little competition. *****
I heard that! I went to both Lowe’s & Home Depot and wanted to look at their Sub Zero refrigerators and Speed Queen washers & dryers and they got down right nasty with me.

It should be, but we live in a country where men are free to enter women’s locker rooms, but it’s evil to say “oriental.” (Just got back from a trip to Japan and Korea – guess which word was plastered everywhere.)
 May 16, 2016 at 11:25am
We’re toast. Exec and Leg branches threw the Constitution away decades ago. Now the Supreme Court will also. Very unlikely a true Conservative slips in now.
What does the Constitution mean to us if the government simply decides not to honor it?
