    All this reminds me of the scene in “Demolition Man” when Sylvester Stallone’s character is given a device that gives an electric shock (kinda like a tazer) when he has to go in to go after the bad guy (played by Wesley Snipes). He looks at is and scoffs. Sometimes you need a real weapon to fight a real criminal.

    Now, I’m not saying that this guy is a real criminal. I was able to view the shoplifting video, but I couldn’t get access to the YouTube video (possibly since I’m looking at this at work and IT has put some sort of block on it). I have no idea if this guy is so guilty as to deserve being shot. That said, however, I know several police officers. They are trained to do what is deemed necessary to protect themselves and the public at large if a threat is imminent. Again, I wasn’t able to see the shooting video, so I don’t know if that was the case here. But, does anyone think that it is in the public’s best interest for the police to stop to determine the color of skin of the suspect before acting? What if the suspect is white and the police officer is black? It is okay, then, to use deadly force? Is this really the world anyone wants to live in?

    Okay, all that’s needed is a church bulletin? That’s easy to get. At my church, all you have to do is walk into the lobby and you are handed one – you don’t even have to go into the actual church. Or is it that atheists believe they will spontaneously combust if they go anywhere near a church? Seriously, for 8% of the population (I think that’s the number Stu gave on the radio today), atheists sure are mouthy. So, atheists, why is that? Are you scared of something?

    Glad to see that maybe some action to resolve this is going to happen. This violence needs to end.

    I will have to say, though, that there are those on the right who are “falling off the wagon” over this issue. There is a man who puts out a newsletter each day called “The Sovereign Man.” His name is Simon Black and is an ex-pat who (until today) thought a lot like Glenn Beck. His newsletter today stated very emphatically that the police are guilty and the rioting is just human nature. Excuse me? I wasn’t there and I assume Mr. Black wasn’t either. So, neither of us has any idea if the police were right or wrong. Either way, though, the rioting is wrong. Civilized man does not take these matters into their own hands by committing acts of violence on the community at large – even if they believe a wrong has been committed. Needless to say, I will no longer be reading what Mr. Black publishes in the future.

    You know that before Obama, this kind of crap didn’t happen. Okay, maybe in the 60′s (before cell phones) but not between then and now. If this is what the fundamental transformation of America looks like, you can keep the change.

    Personally, I have no idea what the truth is in this scenario. But, does the truth really matter at this point (oh, God, I’m beginning to sound like Killery)? The excuse for violence is out there. Reining it in will be the hard part.

    P.S. “Love” that colorful language. Is it any wonder why those living in the ghetto stay in the ghetto?

    Please, those of you who make up the homosexual community. We don’t care what you do as long as it’s with a consenting adult. Stop it with the victim mentality.

    In the past, GAY = HAPPY

    In the very recent past, GAY = HOMOSEXUAL

    Currently, GAY = CRY BABY

    I’ve never watched The Discovery Channel even back when I had satellite TV. But, back then this channel’s reputation seemed fairly good. Why would the executives put of mockumentaries? Makes no sense if you want to keep a good reputation. After all, is it The Discovery Channel or Comedy Central?

    California didn’t steal it…I swear.

    Not that California doesn’t need it. I have a sister and brother-in-law who live in So. Cal. They were recently fined by their water utility for washing their car on their lawn. Seems that where they live, you can’t water your plants or wash your car so doing both is a big no no. This drought stinks.

    Yesterday, I watched one of his new movies on Amazon. The description said that it was still in theaters, but I hadn’t heard anything about it. It’s called “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.” Seriously, someone should have stopped him from making this movie. Not only is it bad, now it’s pretty creepy. His character actually jumps off the Brooklyn Bridge in a suicide attempt (he survives the jump, though). I would suggest not watching this movie to anyone who wants to remember Robin Williams for the comedy genius he was.

  • August 12, 2014 at 4:14pm

    You are right. Remember those “Whores for Obama” buttons during the 2012 DNC?

    Looks like Oakland, CA, after a major loss by the Raiders. Animals being animals.

    This is too weird. I was just talking to my sister on Saturday about Robin Williams. What we talked about was something kinda cool he did back in 1981 (his “Mork and Mindy” days). I was working at a talent agency showcase where comedian Bobby Slayton was performing between musical acts. For intermission, the talent agency had arranged to serve drinks and pastries outside of the venue (which was a performing arts building that was part of U.C. Berkeley). Anyway, Bobby Slayton came out to talk to us two girls who were setting up for the intermission, and Robin Williams was with him. There was a dog running around the courtyard which Robin Williams grabbed and started improvising a comedy skit based around San Francisco television station TV20′s commercials airing during that time where dogs from the SF Bay Area were shown. He then went on doing a comedy routine that was obviously improvised but extremely funny. Pretty soon, word got out and everyone was outside watching him.

    Like I said, pretty cool. Mr. Williams, you will be missed.

    I know where I live (the SF Bay Area), there has been a sharp increase in the Muslim population over the last 20 years – at least a sharp increase in women wearing burkas. Ever since 9/11, I’ve given the Muslim population a wide birth (i.e., I tend to avoid them as much as possible). I’ve kinda felt guilty for doing so, but it looks like maybe it’s a good idea. My heart tells me that not all Muslims are bad, but my head is telling me that just may not be the case.

    Was that an Exon gas station? The name on the side looked like it could be Russian for Exon.

    It’s “nice” to see that the fire departments in Russia are about as fast as the fire departments in America. Actually, I shouldn’t say that. I had something similar happen to me a few years ago and the fire department (which happened to be right across the street) showed up pretty fast. Anyway, the office building I worked in had a tenant who did heating/air conditioning repair. His work truck looked like something the “Beverly Hillbillies” would drive. Apparently his truck caught fire while he was driving, and he pulled into the office building’s parking lot to use a hose to put the fire out. It didn’t work, and his truck went up in flames. We all had to run for our lives. Luckily, the chemical he had on his truck (which he wasn’t licensed to have, so he got in a whole lot of trouble) and/or the gasoline tank didn’t blow up or I might just not be here right now.

    You’re thinking of Viagra. Al Gore took it and grew three feet taller.

    That’s not my joke. It belongs to Larry the Cable Guy.

    “The editorial went on to point out that Obama himself said last fall that he couldn’t legally take executive action.”

    Since when does anyone expect Obama to actually do what he says? Oh yea, back in 2009 when a whole lot of us (me included) had some Hope that things would Change for the better. That turned out, of course, to be a bold-faced lie – just like everything else that comes out of his mouth. I’m sure the White House has rolls of the Constitution located in several small rooms that Obama and the First Family frequent without their security detail (if you know what I mean).

    I’ve seen way worse spelling errors within The Blaze articles and comments.

    This reminds me and just FYI, that new football movie, “When the Game Stands Tall,” is not about a football team located in Louisiana (at least that is where the movie was filmed). De La Salle High School is located in my back yard, Concord, California. But I suppose setting a feel-good football movie in California won’t sit well with the California haters.

    Hey Obama…maybe that moat should have been built after all.

    On another subject, I wanted to let everyone know of some “news” that is spreading in accounting offices. Many employers are skirting around the high cost of health care premiums by putting employees on the Obamacare exchange plans then reimbursing them for their costs. This is illegal according to the ACA. If an employer does this, that employer is subject to a $100.00 per day, per employee fine. The accounting firm I work for does after-the-fact payroll (i.e., just prepares quarterly reporting forms) for several employers who are doing this. They are now being notified to immediately stop. If you are working for an employer (or are an employer) who is doing this, notify the company that IRS Notice 2013-54 explains it all. Of course, employees now risk totally losing employer-paid health care insurance. “Thanks” again to Obama as all his supporters.

    I wonder if this is how the “average joe” Germans, Italians, and Japanese felt at the start of and the events leading up to World War II?

    Where, oh where are the leaders who actually represent the people? With the exception of a precious few, they are long gone I suppose.

    Why is it that the Hollywood types always stick their noses in where they don’t belong? Who the bleep cares what they think? I wonder if it is any coincidence that the actors named were not born in the U.S.? May explain a lot. Sad about Cruz, though. I really liked her up until now – despite her “fling” with Tom Cruise.

    I will have to say, however, that it would be interesting to find out what people like Barbara Streisand and Steven Speilberg have to say. Where will their alliances lie? I surely hope it’s on the side of Israel.

    BTW, pleased that so many on the Hollywood Reporter site are applauding what Jon Voight has done. Bravo, Mr. Voight. Your efforts are courageous.

    Some one should notify the SyFy Channel. Another cheesy movie could be in the works.

    Speaking of cheesy SyFy Channel movies, watched “Sharknado” today. It’s free with subscription on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime. It was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen – funny because it is so bad. Yes, it takes place in Southern California and even has John Heard in it (his career must be in the toilet).
