@Eric_The_Red_State You couldn’t be more wrong….you are paying for takers throughout this country……Obamacare is a MASSIVE transfer of your income to the takers for just ONE example.
And just because we have politicians that are liars doesn’t mean that we should excuse or accept dishonest behavior.
This man is a thief and scam artist and undoubtedly a tax cheat.

You give them too much credit….Progressive/Democrat educators can be both INCOMPETENT and MARXISTS…..

Thanks for the sheeple answer. If you spend time out there…which I do….you will recognize a virtual maze of regulations– complex, overlapping, and infinitely restrictive.
I had a heart to heart a couple of years back with an Oregon State Trooper — Wildlife enforcement. He stopped writing tickets for several years for ATV usage because the law was vague, onerous, overlapping and unenforceable.
You were supposed to check in personally with every jurisdiction and understand every law. Including the local ranger stations…and the forest…and the BLM …and the county…and the state….the wildlife unit, the “special restrictions on the wildlife units….ad nauseum.
If you can’t take your kid on a back dirt road in the middle of nowhere and teach him to drive safely– we have lost America. Both the idea that is America and the freedoms it’s citizens are guaranteed.

What do you expect — he’s just another corrupt Clinton crony…
 May 23, 2016 at 4:51pm
But thank you for the thumbs down….I guess we know where you stand
 May 23, 2016 at 4:47pm
Yes…and YOURS…..as opposed to the GOVERNMENTS.
May 23, 2016 at 4:41pm
I stand corrected ;) You are correct Sir!l Pathetic socialist it is….
I had wanted tp simply call her a lying b**ch…..while entirely accurate…would have got my comment revoked. Oh well…what the hell!
 May 23, 2016 at 4:14pm
I guess Trump could bankrupt America….
EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT YOU AND THAT SOCIALIST POS IN THE WHITE HOUSE ALREADY HAVE BANKRUPTED US!!!
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black….thy hypocrisy is amazing… Its like she might even be sociapathic!!
Tim : I would LOVE to know how much the ' travels ' of the Obama Administration ( and that includes Hillary's frequent-flyer miles as Secretary of State ) have cost us sucker-taxpayers . Almost as much as I'd love to see what is hidden in Obama's college records
Let me correct that for you, Tim!
"thy hypocrisy is amazing… Its like she might even be sociapathic!!"
I believe it's spelled Socialist/Pathetic! ;))
really what would happen is the govt screws all the debt holders and starts lecturing us for not willingly giving up our pensions, hospitals, schools, home heating and cooling, cars ..just like venezuela

Haha– reminds of when my 13 year old son got pulled over on a desert road in the middle of MY BLM land.
5-10 mph on this road is max just for context–
I was teaching him to drive…..but the rookie Forest Service enforcement guy was all gung ho and wanted blood. Was going to write me a ticket…but then he realized I wasn’t driving so he couldn’t ticket me….and then he finally got pulled away to another call. Guess even he realized that ticketing a 13 year learning how to drive on a back desert trail might not be a good idea.
The power seems to get to their heads– some cops are such ********.
And no wonder that ranchers out in Eastern Oregon hate the occasional arrogant sonbitches.
But thank you for the thumbs down....I guess we know where you stand
While I agree with your practical manner, trails in BLM land are subject to Govt control. County maintained (graded) roads are subject to county jurisdictional guidelines, where as forest roads, national forest roads, trails and even paths are up to the jurisdiction of the forest service.
Since you referenced BLM I will assume you are out west. The laws aren't anything goes. There are age limits for operators of ATVs and motorcycles and of course traditional motor vehicles. If it was YOUR leased BLM grazing land, but there is a road/trail/or path that has been in use you can't you close it off, you cannot skirt the FS laws while on said path. So, you pull the spark arresting muffler off your Razor, cross the road, even on your leased land, and they will get ya.
I've worn out vehicles wheeling in the west, you gotta know the laws and the rules. That's why I have registration and insurance on my ATV.
Retired city cops in Costa Rica tell me , these day, applicants are rejected if they test beyond a certain intelligence level . I thought they were just kidding.

Its the opposite of “idiocracy” which is what we have today under Obama. [Idiocracy -- Also a hard to find movie that I highly recommend -- good for a laugh ....and then a couple months of depression when you realize its not a fictional movie ;) ]
Go for it on Meritocracy….as much as I like to sell the concept– definitely not a new one …in fact it has obvious roots in the laws of nature.
 May 23, 2016 at 11:25am
Stop making sense. What you describe is a meritocracy….where you get to earn and then keep the fruits of your labor….and hence are motivated to increase your skills and value to others. That is not the progressive/democrat/communist collective utopia!
Just get back in line, get on your Obamaphone and demand free stuff!! Vote for more free stuff! Woohooo!
"Meritocracy". Nice TimPatriot. I've never heard it before. May I use that term in the future? :)

I did watch the video. Casting sympathy for this “good” man and giving him a platform both serve to normalize this behavior.
You could not be more wrong.

Never trust a billionaire with tax policy or social issues….they have a very twisted view because $$ don’t mean anything to them.
For the working folks– handout means that you need to work harder and longer to pay for the takers.
For a billionaire…its just a rounding error…besides you’ve got 100 tax attorneys to ensure you don’t really pay for all the free crap that you are handing out.
Yep, we have the example of Warren Buffett, the oracle of Omaha, repeating that his secretary is in a higher tax bracket than he is. Although true, the reality is hers is based on earned income and his based on investment income which he does not bother to clarify. But that aside, has Warren ever offered to pay at the same rate as his secretary if he feels such an injustice is being done? Absolutely not just as all libs who want taxes raised never volunteer to pay additional taxes which they are free to do.
Warren Buffet owes almost $1 billion in back taxes.
He is fighting his tax bill.

Absolute fool or.absolute deceiver….one or the other.

Propaganda machine…..funded by our tax dollars to destroy America and its constitution and in many cases directly achieve muslim goals.

Pedophilia, Bestiality, Necrophilia…..
Take them to the back 40 and put em down.
What’s even worse than being a pedophile…is Salon giving them a platform to “sell” , “educate” and to normalize this behavior.
Sex abuse victims often have these feelings (and they're not controllable), and it seems to have something to do with when their abuse started (possibly at that point their natural development stopped). The problem with people like this is that they claim they've never done anything about it, but often are lying so they can attempt to normalize the condition. It's like Gary Hart telling the press to follow him...he doesn't believe anyone will ever catch him.
Salon isn't normalizing it! Did you even watch the video?!?! A man who has terrible urges and chooses NOT to follow them. There's nothing being normalized, but virtue!
The story reads more like a 'support' group of psychologically conflicted adults who have been deemed by society as child molesters. It's like damning an openly gay person who has never acted on their homosexuality. Although I know child molestation ranks much higher on the 'immoral scale' I thought they were comparable enough. Although, I've not read as many Biblical passages on child molesters as I have homosexuality. Even if these men never 'act' out their obsessions there is an increase in the likelihood they have child pornography. We must maintain that even self-proclaimed pedophiles have protection rights from unreasonable searches and seizures. Let us not through the constitution out the window due to our emotional human response to protect children. You aren't protecting anyone at this point; the damage has already been done to the child. But when the time is right, *cough* "probable cause" *cough*, then by all means.

And turn the whole planet into “orgy island”….. thats where this road ends.

There are two flavors:
1. Cultists that have been brainwashed….aka “useful idiots”
2. Politicians that take advantage of the issue as a tool (Dem/Prog/Communist)

This is bizarro– where did this thing originate and how did it mutate to the human population?
And I wonder what is the honest percentage of those infected cases have come over the border illegally? >90% …i would guess
As far as I know, every single case in Houston was contracted outside of our borders.
I have no doubt that our esteemed leaders will wring their hands and spend billions on bug spray before they even think about looking at the source.
Tim: Very close estimate. More like 95%.
