Almost everyone on the right who keeps up on political events would rather have Ted Cruz. The problem is the GOPe.
If Trump were not in, the GOPe already has the primary sewn up by the 5th state – Florida. Nobody had a chance against the GOPe machine and Jeb – not even Ted Cruz. As much as I’ve been for Ted Cruz for at least a year, I threw my support for Trump, despite knowing full well who he is, for one reason, and one reason only – to destroy the RNC and GOPe.
Until that happens, it wont matter how conservative a candidate get put there. As many progressive ideas as Trump has, he will never want to “fundamentally transform” this nation as part of a Communist agenda.

As someone else mentioned, the AH-64 Apache has 2 seats – it’s never used for transport except maybe in emergencies. But that would be mighty rare.

Ever since watching the show ‘Justified’, every time I hear something about Detroit, all I can think about is Boyd Crowder in S05E01 saying, “Oh, well I have been to Iraq. It’s a lot like Detroit, except you have better music.”

To fellow members of the church, you are wasting your time trying to be missionaries online to people who take every opportunity they can to attack the church. It’s more or less casting your pearls before swine. (Yes, I did in effect, just call the haters swine.)
The only time I’ve ever been able to get haters to back down online is when I’ve thoroughly destroyed their arguments with the Bible. I don’t do it anymore cause it bores me these days. I have better things to do like being a decent Christian to those I come in contact with on a daily basis.
Great points Chem. One thing the haters of the Church don't realize is that they treat the Church the same way the religious leaders treated the Savior and His church in former times. Sort of strengthens my testimony to see the persecution heaped upon the Church!
Something you should endeavor to understand is that not everyone who disagrees is a "hater". I have and do disagree with the LDS Church but I do not hate any of them. To label those who differ with you as haters is to demonstrate your own brand of intolerance in my opinion.

Here we go with another excuse for all the Mormon haters to come out of the woodwork.
Let them come, turn the other cheek and speak peace, kindness, and the words of life. Those who have true malice will be revealed or skulk away to the holes they sadly came from.
You want to put it in the category of making mormons a victim like race. Nope not true, They need to ear the truth. Without the true GOD they will perish. They cannot pervert the true gospel and get by with it. That is what GOD says not me I am just the messenger. Seems it is truth you hate and want to victimize those who want to rebel against it.

“Im a teenager, and ik you can call me an idiot cause Im a “social progressive” but I have a better understanding of politics and news stories than most adults do”
I went to political meetings in people’s homes when I was your age. I thought I was so smart back then.
As my grandmother said when I was 17. “Remember this time, ’cause you’ll never know as much as you do right now.”

These cops are not trained or configured for riot control.
When I was stationed at Ft. Meyer, VA, our secondary mission was domestic defense of D.C. We went through riot control training all the time.
The protesters are idiots and some of them outright animals. The LEO’s screwed up the crowd/riot control big time here.

No kidding. The black helicopter, tin-foil hat paranoia is crazy. All the Alex Jones loons gravitated to this story.
I’ve been drug tested for almost every job I got and multiple times in the military – both urine and hair tests. I’ve watched plenty of soldiers get caught and every single one of them was doing drugs. I’ve never seen a false positive once in the 20+ years I’ve been subject to them. Every single person caught admitted it and half the time I knew it before they came up hot.
The 4th amendment only applies when you don’t have a contract with that entity. If you want to enter a contract and it requires a drug test from you, you’ve already waived your 4th amendment.

JRook, one of the few times I completely agree with you.
This is definitely something grounded in the Constitution that conservatives and liberals can and should work together to stop.

I wonder if you guys have a clue that every organization in the St. Louis Area is run by Democrats.
Contrast that with the Republican Sheriff candidate in my county who will replace Sheriff John Cook. When asked about the action taken in Boston (also run by Democrats), he replied he’d never do anything like that in Weld County. In fact, he’d encourage all law-abiding gun owners to assist his Deputies in fighting large-scale, immediate, criminal threats.
Once again, you liberal pukes fail.

It must be hell for you now that Dr. Baden’s autopsy report shows that Brown was never shot in the back.
 August 18, 2014 at 2:04am
Dr. Baden’s autopsy disputes every story out there that claims Brown was shot in the back while running away, before turning around, laying on the ground, etc.
 August 18, 2014 at 1:53am
You don’t even need this autopsy report to discount the public housing accounts of Brown being shot in the back.
The position and location of Brown’s body pretty much dispute everything the black cop-haters have claimed happened.
Indeed. As pointed out by observers in the video, Brown's hat (the one he was wearing in the robbery video) is lying in the street what looks to be 10 feet or more farther from the police suv and Brown's body. How did it get there? If he was indeed on his knees and shot execution-style, it should be near the body or at least have holes in it corresponding to the head wounds noted on the autopsy sheet. Educated speculation would indicate Brown had gotten at least that far and for whatever reason (perhaps as displayed in the robbery video where he started to advance and intimidate the shop clerk), he turned back towards the police vehicle and met his demise during that action. IMHO, virtually nothing in the videoed scene nor the autopsy would indicate this guy was stationary, on his knees, with arms over his head when he succumbed to his injuries.
What about the white cop-haters?

All entrance and exit wounds are in the front.

Here in Colorado, putting in both Beauprez and Gardner will make a difference.
Maybe then something can be done with all the shale oil that is hiding in the ground down by Parachute? That issue got backburner-ed when I left the state in '95.

Yes. What right do you have to make the determination of how important someone else’s property is or isn’t?
The lawmakers have said it’s legal to defend your property with lethal force. You crybaby liberals think that somehow because paying taxes without representation is lawful that somehow it’s morally right when it isn’t. Go pound sand.

“Witnesses have said Brown had his hands raised when he was shot by a police officer.” I have a hard time believing any eyewitness accounts from people who are willing to loot and plunder at the drop of a hat.
It really depends and is harder than you think. When was the last time you tried? I believe he thought the same thing, and with 1 1/2 years on I would accept that. When he took her down she ended up on her back, that is a bad position. She grabbed hold of his left arm / shirt / radio mic(?) with her right and the problems began. Because of her size and that she was attached to his left side there was more trouble. You see how easy it was once the off duty officer came in to assist.
He also probably underestimated her ability to resist while on her back. His inexperience resulted in his hitting, an appropriate but less effective move. It appears pain did not affect her. An OC spray or taser would be the ideal choice for bringing this under control quickly. Throwing dirt in her face would cause a reflex response resulting her letting go too.
There is another common problem with larger officers who get into a situation that they cannot quickly control because they are not used to this occurring. The are moves he could have made using brute force but that would probably cause a more serious injury such as a broken or dislocated shoulder.
Other more detailed reports showed she has insignificant injuries and her hospital stay was linked to psychological issues.
If you want confrontations like this to stop, ensure that your police assign two officers per car ensuring back-up is readily available. Obviously this is not a popular solution because of the increased cost.
