Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. “I fear we have awakened a sleeping dragon” – Admiral Yamamoto after bombing Pearl Harbor. If these radical Muslim terrorists start killing our service men and women and their families in their homes, all the gloves come off, and the overwhelming majority of U.S. citizens will have no sympathy for these murderers. And to quote another high-ranking military officer, “You may have a million man army, buy your Navy and your Air Force suck.” – General Shwartzkopf. You start making it personal in our own homes, and we will not only not care if we drop daisy-cutters in the middle of your cities, we’ll be clamoring for it.
No, I’m an Oregon native and a conservative. He’s talking about the infestation of left-wing lunatics that moved up from California in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. They would just assume to turn the whole state into some sort of hikers and bikers utopia with absolutely no business allowed except for light rail services, state government, and of course 420 shops.

It’s kind of hard for Rand to do anything with Beohner and Mconnell running the show. Honestly, I don’t understand how anyone can think Trump would make a good president. I don’t suppose we could convince Chuck Norris to run, could we?

I did feel that the questioning was biased last night, but maybe a little differently that what a lot of others are saying. To me it seemed like, Bush, Christie, and definitely Trump were asked several more questions (and thus given more airtime) than the candidates I really wanted to hear from (Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Carson)

This is just another example of their being two different types of citizens in this country. Since it was a politician (lumped in with other law enforcement) = no ticket. Anyone not a cop or politician = ticket (and possibly some jail time for reckless endangerment)

Of course, the liberals still want young boys to be able to play outside (childhood obesity rates, they always proclaim are an epidemic) it’s just that they should be playing with Barbie and Ken. Or Ken and Ken, or Barbie and Barbie. It’s pretty obvious the ******** think that if little boys would only sit down and play tea party, house (and of course the aforementioned Barbie/doctor routine) just like their female counterparts, the world would be rainbows (literally), unicorns, and bedazzled Sketchers. #letboysbeboys
And what did boys play with for the thousands of years before toy guns were invented? To be fair, I played with toy guns when I was younger and as others have pointed out, not pointing them at cops is a good idea, but there are other ways for boys to play besides with guns or barbies.

I am about to use an argument I’ve used a couple of times on here in the past, and received a ton of support from others. The argument I’ve used is that if Allah is omnipotent and omniscient, why does he need mere mortal men to enforce his Sharia laws? Wouldn’t He know in advance who was, and who was not going to be pure? If He knew that a particular man or woman would violate one of his most sacred laws, would He really need a mortal enforcement squad?
Now here’s the part where I make everyone mad, I suppose. If God is omnipotent and omniscient, why does He need mortal men to enforce his laws? If being gay is opposed to His natural laws, wouldn’t He already know in advance who was and was not going to be pure? Would He need mortal men to prevent these acts by enacting their own inferior laws?
I see religious zealotry equally on both sides of the aisle. I am an atheist, and I have trouble with any so-called religious person who feels they are somehow on the side of righteousness by hurting, or denying others in His name. If you truly believe, leave it to the Big Guy. He’s God. He doesn’t need your help.

One thing is for sure, those sickos will never capture me. I will fight down to my last bullet, and when I only have it left, I would use it on myself before giving them the satisfaction of playing “who’s the most demented terrorist.”

What’s worse? That the White House lied, or that the people on the so called “news” station MSLSD are all chuckling at the fact? It’s obvious it is nothing but a joke to them. If a conservative would have lied, there would be serious faces, somber undertones, and major headlines.

@Libertarian…The problem I see with the socialist agenda of equality, and making poor people pay less percentage in taxes than their wealthy counterparts, is that it de-motivates people from wanting to become more than they are. Why work harder, study harder, and achieve better to earn more money, if that is just going to get taxed at a higher rate? Why be a brain surgeon if after taxes I’ll make the same amount of money as a Primary Care Physician? Why even become a doctor, when after taxes I’ll make the same amount as a nurse. And on, and on, and on. It’s no different from those who are de-motivated to go to work, because they will end up losing money as the welfare is more lucrative than the minimum-wage job. Which is of course, why all the liberals and Communists are clamoring for a minimum wage hike to $15 an hour. What they don’t consider is how much the costs of goods and services are going to go up if that happens, and how many jobs will be lost, hence more people on welfare. Ask yourself, really ask yourself, if you believe that people are so good, and so motivated, that they will continue to work hard, study hard, and achieve bigger and better results without some sort of incentive. A flat tax is fair. If you don’t earn any money working, then 14% of zero is ZERO. That’s a heck of a lot more fair than that same individual getting a check for $5K because they have 4 kids and didn’t work.
Your argument makes sense IF the only motivation for work is money. Personally, I chose my military career because I liked the work, not the money. Now, I teach at a University...and I can definitely say it's not because of the money.

@Libertarian…Are you saying that the IRS is here to protect the individuals rights from encroachment from others? Absolutely laughable given the scandal involved in that institution where they targeted right-wing organizations for political purposes. Rand has a simple solution to a huge problem, and that is over-taxation of the American workers by both corporations and habitual welfare recipients. The latter pay almost nothing in taxes, but each year millions receive Earned Income Credit for children, to the tune of thousands of dollars each. Basically, it’s like saying “Good job, welfare recipient. You spent your life making bad choices, so here’s some money from people who worked hard and made good choices. You need it more than they do.” And an end to FICA tax? I can only dream. Imagine what our 401Ks, IRA’s and other savings might look like if we could have put those FICA dollars to our own, individual retirement rather than the Ponzi scheme that is Social Security.

As an Atheist, I side with the bakers. I wouldn’t walk into a place of worship for any religion and demand that the leader of the establishment provide me and my fellow Atheists a sermon on how evolution trumps creationism. The beautiful thing about America, at least is WAS a beautiful thing about America, is that we were all entitled to our own opinions.
Bad analogy!!! That analogy wouldn’t hold up in FEDERAL court because there’s no FEDERAL law requiring any church to teach anything other than what they believe to begin with, nor should there be because this is a country free from religious persecution.

“Reassigned?” Why is it when someone fails in the corporate world they are fired. But nope, can’t have that from someone who has suckled from the govt. teet for 30 years. They get “reassigned” so that they can duly finish out double-dipping and remain pension eligible. Unbelievable.
they could bust him down to airport screener but he would collect the same pay for a long period of time, corporate he would get the rate of the job if not fired

I see this more of a planned tactic on the part of the NYT and the Clinton Camp. Let the Times publish all these questions, and it gives Hillary’s camp plenty of time to craft the answers that they want to the questions that could do the most damage in an interview or debate.

I have to agree with Jefferson. AK’s use a 7.62 round – basically the equivalent of a 30-06 deer rifle round. Much larger, more powerful, and with more velocity than the 5.56 round used in M-16s/M4s/AR’s. The 7.62 round can penetrate a concrete wall about 6″ thick and still easily kill the person on the other side of it. At the point blank range in the video, if that bullet hit home ANYWHERE on that policeman’s body, you would have seen a large amount of body material/fluids sprayed across the concrete. Heck, even many seconds after the shooting, there is isn’t even a small trail of blood. No way that happens if that round hits a human at that distance.

Typical lefty response: Let’s get the Government in here to clean it up! We obviously can’t do anything for ourselves like: Having two parent households with positive mother and father role models, taking an interest in our kids’ lives, cleaning up our own neighborhoods, working with the police rather than against them, or gosh forbid, instilling a sense of honor and integrity in the youth of these neighborhoods. Nope, can’t do that. Government! Help!

XEfitnop, First off, thank you for your service both in the Marine Corps, and in the LE community. Having been an Air Force cop (okay, don’t laugh, the Marine MPs trained at Lackland AFB, too!) I see both sides of the story. Do I want each and every LEO to go home safely to their family each night? Yes, absolutely. I don’t have to even think twice about it. But I also want each and every citizen who is exercising their constitutional rights to do the same. We have all seen too many videos lately of misinformed and/or under educated, or downright dishonest and corrupt, LEOs who have no business whatsoever riding around in an MRAP. If they will taze 78 year old men for not having an inspection sticker (when one wasn’t even required), when they use the chokehold (outlawed by their own policy) and kill someone by performing the duty of a tax collector, or when they illegally confiscate someone’s smartphone in an attempt to erase a damaging video (tampering with evidence) then imagine what lengths these people will go to when they have the warm fuzzy feeling of being surrounded by 8 tons of armor plating? No thank you. I saw enough of what armored vehicles can do to “law abiding citizens” during the Arab Spring.

This is ridiculous. I am an atheist, and if Ruth wants her God to bless me than I shall thank her for it and feel fortunate. When did a simple gesture of kindness and goodwill become such a threat or so offensive? Honestly, sometimes I think a lot of atheists do believe and are just too proud to admit it. If you truly don’t believe, then why get upset about someone asking what you believe to be a fictitious character to place some otherworldly charm on you? If you truly don’t believe then why is what she said any different than “Thanks for coming in and have a wonderful rest of your day?” Sorry, this is one atheist who stands with the church, Ruth, and the majority of Americans on this issue.
Thanks for your post! How refreshing for a change! Just like the lesbians on Glenn's 5:00 Thurs. show, showing support for the people that don't believe in same sex marriage nor support the LGBT lifestyle being forced to cater to them, what REALLY matters is that we're ALL part of the HUMAN race and are just trying to get by. It's sad, how divided this "president" has made this country. The "Fundamental Transformation" is nearly complete - and it's UGLY. We would be so much better off without politicians polluting the country and dividing us when so many don't even realize how much damage they (the politicians they trust) are doing.
I am a Christian. God bless you, USAF_SP. And THANK YOU for your Service to our great nation :) I hope life is good to you and that you get the benefits and respect you deserve, no matter what you believe.

This story really makes me mad. I’m an atheist, but that is my choice. Millions of other Americans practice their religion as they see fit. That is (or apparently at least WAS) what was so beautiful about what was created here by our founding fathers. I have no issues with anyone speaking their mind in their places of worship. What I do have issues with is some weird hybrid watchdog/government agency selectively enforcing the law. We have all of R. Wrights sermons recorded. I’ve heard several of them on Beck, Hannity, and Rush, and all of them were explicitly political. #enddoublestandards
