I dont care if your white or black. If the sign says no swimming, dont take your kid in the water. This women is ignoarant and racist. But its florida, and its fresh water. You get in there despite signs that say stay back from water and no swimming your putting your life and your childs in danger. Sad part is, the lawsuit will make these parents rich. I feel bad for them but they will now pass more laws to protect us from ourselves.

Thats the problems with liberal and republicans. They have both lost sight of what the true rule of governmet is to have in our lives. You believe its the governments job to force a company to pay for your abortion. You believe the government is required to feed you when your hungry, and cloth you when your cold, or to recognize your marriage. I ask why. You say the stupid hurts your head, so i say, stop being stupid. Spend your time with who you want, feeding yourself, paying your own way and worry not what society as a whole thinks about it. Then you will be truly free. But stupid is often forever. This isnt between democrats or rwpublicans. This is between two forms of stupid (your side) and constitutionalism.

You will have to explain to me how forcing a pastor that doesnt agree with gay marriage to officiate a gay marriage doesnt violate his religious liberty. Also, youll need to show me where in the constitution it requires the united states to take in muslim immigrants. Actually, please show me where it REQUIRES the united states to take in any immigrant. This being as issue of religous liberty makes the argument intersting. If Trump called for the deportation of US citizen muslims then i would agree that he is violating the constitution. But since he is only calling for a tempoary ban on of muslim immigrants that are not citizens, there for not falling under the authority of our laws, then it is not a vilolation. Do you have to agree with that, no, but it is legal. But, i find it hard to believe that a bleeding heart liberal such as your self actually cares about religous liberty. As a libertarian, the answer to the marriage question is simple. You have all these advocay groups, right and left begging for recognition. My response is simple. Why is the federal government involved in marriage either gay or straight. My “wife” is no less my wife because i didnt go to the clerk for her signature of approval. We did what we felt was right, not what liberals like you, or republicans felt was right. But thats your problem. It isnt enough for you to just do somthing, you demand recognition for it. What others think means far to much to you.

I am in no way a supporter of Donald Trump, but he has called for a ban on muslims, not all refugees. There is a difference. Im all for allowing middle eastern christians who are being persicuted. And in that sense the convention is right. But i have only heard trump call for a ban on muslims, not all refugees.
I know this is a really difficult concept for some people to understand but TRUMP is the one violating religious freedom, not the other way around. SHE is using h]HIS position to enforce HIS religious views on society. Those who think religious freedom is somehow not being violated by not allowing MUSLIMS into this Country are complete and utter imbeciles.
These right wing psychos who claim to care so much about religious freedom are some of the biggest hypocrites in existence. The only religious freedom they care about is their own. What they are doing is the exact opposite of defending religious freedom. There are plenty of churches out there that are not anti-gay and are more than happy to perform gay weddings. The RWNJs don’t care about their religious freedom though. They think gay marriage is a sin, so they want everyone else to live under their biblical laws. What’s so mind-blowingly insane about it is that they are completely incapable of comprehending how they are the actual oppressors of religious freedom in this situation and not the ones being persecuted.
The stupid: it hurts my brain.

Rayvet, Don’t hold TampaBoys’s comments against all religious people. I’m not sure exactly which God he worships, but that isn’t exactly how i would define the God I worship. As a Christian, things happen that are beyond our understanding. And even though I don’t always have the answers, I believe that sometimes things will work out for the greater good. An example being the life of Paul. He was an earlier persecutor of the Christian Church. He took great pleasure in the suffering of those early Christians. Yet, God saw fit to use Paul for a greater purpose. Does this excuse Paul’s behavior, or somehow make it okay. No, of course not. Yet he asked for forgiveness and was given a job to perform and glorified God in the process. I had never heard of this hitman, but if he has asked forgiveness and has decided to use the rest of his life to detour young people away from a life of drugs and crime then God Bless him. Does it make perfect sense to me? No. Does it seem fair to the family’s of his victims? No. Am I God, able to create heaven and earth and in my perfection able to pass judgment on others? No. Am I called upon to love my enemy? YES. So if this man has changed, and is able to prevent kids from going down his path, God Bless him. As for Tampa and the law of the Harvest. God did say he will judge people in the way they judge others. I hope Tampa’s judgments have been perfect, because if they aren’t, his harvest won’t be a good one.

Makes sense. Bill is a Trump supporter. And if you look at Trumps history on gun policy, with the exception of the past 3 months, Bill and Trumps opinions line up quite well. And Trumpbots wonder why so many of us won’t be voting for him.
Apparently, Trump is meeting with the NRA soon to discuss "gun control", including banning sales to people on the terror-watch list and no-fly list.
Trump's Tweet below.
"I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.
9:50 AM - 15 Jun 2016 "
Keep in mind, before spouting off that "terrorists should not be allowed to buy guns", that DHS wanted vets, secure boarder proponents, pro-life activists, homeschoolers, single issue voters, and more on the terrorist watch list.

Let me see if I have this right. Donald Trump was selected as the Republican parties nominee despite the fact that millions of Republicans say they will not vote for him. On top of that, 49% of those who are going to vote for him are only doing so because they fear Hillary. I also must take into account that the overwhelming majority of polls through out the primary had Trump losing to Hillary head to head. Consider for a moment that Trump received 44% of the Primary vote and since March is averaging about 39% in a head to head with Hillary, that means he has lost people who once supported him. If you listen to Trump supporters they were dead set on not electing another establishment politician, so they decided to support a man who despite not having ever served public office has been funding establishment politicians for the better part of 30 years. And finally, Trump supporters decided to ignore 30 years of Trump history and only base their vote on the last 6 months of his promises.
Does anyone know what this means. It means despite millions of us saying never Trump, the desperate and angry Trump bots went there anyway and hand delivered Hillary the White house. And if by some chance Trump manages to pull this off, it means that Trump will be just as bad as Hillary would be.
Conclusion, whoever wins (likely Hillary) the next president won’t come close to a mandate because they won’t get 50% of the vote.

We are now a country that cares more about fame and celebrity more than actually achieving something. People no longer let their actions speak for their talent. Do you think Michelangelo would make it as an artist today. Probably not. Because he was to busy creating masterful pieces of Art. He probably would have been unwilling to smear feces on his body and roll around on a canvas in front of Cameras and put himself on display calling it performance art. Yet, there are millions of people who are more than willing to do that today in an effort to achieve fame and celebrity. Don’t misunderstand me. This man has had a distinguished career in the navy and developing things for NASA as an engineer. Those are amazing and great things he did. Those are achievements we should celebrate. But hamming it up because he decided he wanted the spotlight and decided to scream a metal song on TV isn’t one of those things we should celebrate. This is exactly why every kid who doesn’t have musical talent, has a youtube channel they put videos of themselves on. And the sad thing is, people are more than willing to indulge these fantasies. Someone needs to teach these kids, “You don’t have the talent to make it in this industry so you either need to quit and do something else, or you need to triple your efforts and get better.” But kids don’t want to work at being great at what they are doing, they want the celebrity and fame more than anything. And this old man perfectly illustrated my point.
June 9, 2016 at 12:43pm
Let me put it to you like this. I appreciate greatness and achievement. Those are things this country used to celebrate. Now we are a country of participation trophies. We are now a country where grades don’t matter, because a D is just a B without a belt on. We are a country that loves to celebrate the minor achievements of our children on our bumper stickers. I’m not the biggest Basketball fan, but anyone who had ever seen Micheal Jordan play knew that he spent countless hours working on his craft when everyone else packed it in for the day. I admire hard work and the achievement that comes with that kind of preparation. This isn’t about the genre the old man was singing, this is about an old man who probably doesn’t even like this song other than the fact that it got him his 15 minutes of fame. Its that simple. To me this is no different than Miley Cyrus twerking or Paris Hilton releasing a sex tape. When people have a lack of talent in a certain field, they have to get noticed doing something shocking. I have no doubt the man enjoys Karaoke, but who wants to see yet another elderly man sing My Way by Frank Sinatra. But who doesn’t want to see an 82 year old man scream Let the Bodies Hit the Floor. See the point. It isn’t about being closed minded, its about why we do things. I don’t believe for a minute that this old man every enjoyed that song, until he realized what kind of attention he would get singing it. And of course, the voice was more than happy to showcase it.
 June 8, 2016 at 11:07pm
This is exactly what is wrong with this country. I highly doubt this old man likes that band, or enjoys that song. However, sitting down one day with family, they thought it would be cute to have grandpa audition on a show using shock value. The producers were more than happy to have him on, because to the average American Moron, this is great. Its not great. Its an 82 year old man hoping to achieve 15 minutes of fame. Its a ignorant public that is more than happy to give it to him. Hey kids, you dont need talent or achievement to be recognized, all you need to do is something shocking.
Not my genre, but I know it actually takes a lot of talent and practice to do that right at a high level. You ever felt like something's gotta give? Felt like nothing's wrong with you? The bodies are hitting the floor right now, where are you on that? Try a little of this (top ten christian metal screamo bands) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfiovhkpcm4 You're awfully young to be so close-minded aren't you? That guy was a naval aviator, I seriously doubt he's done much he didn't feel like doing. Funny, I thought that was awesome and I'm not feeling moronic. Judge-mental much? What's wrong with doing something shocking? Jesus did one of the most shocking thing the world has ever experienced to "...draw all men" unto him, and it's never been forgotten. I'm not necessarily against doing something shocking. Glad you've lost a lot of weight and are feeling better. I'm working on that myself.
Unlike mushy, crappy popular music of today or the golden oldies of the 1960's and 70's, Metal knows no age group, never has, never will. I've been to hard core death metal concerts with people from their early 20's to people in their 60's attending. Once saw an 80 something year old woman at a Metallica concrete and she was having the time of her life. Metal is an attitude, not a musical fad. You either get it or you don't.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Well, Lindsey Graham is still as much of an enemy to the Constitution as Trump is. Having said that, I’m going to enjoy watching the Republicans fight for the next few months.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. In a country of 300,000,000 plus people, how is it that the best we could come up with for leadership is Bernie Sanders, Hilary Clinton, and Donald Trump. If this is the best we can do as a country, it doesn’t matter who the next president is, cause our goose is cooked anyway. But for people who put principles before party, It will be fun watching these morons destroy each other. How sad will it be that the next president will be elected with a margin of 45% of the vote. Not even close to a mandate.
 June 3, 2016 at 1:35am
I’m glad we agree rayvet. Because Ryan Endorsed Trump, Trump will now do whatever he can to ensure that Ryan retains his power. So basically, what you’ve just admitted is that Trump is no different than any other RINO. And people wonder why real conservatives aren’t going to vote for more of the same with Trump.
[-1] May 30, 2016 at 10:05pm
Same 5-1 odds say your a trump voter that became exicted at the thought of having 1 less illegal. Did you get the warm and fuzzys when you wrote your post. Its one thing to want to stop illegal immigration. Its entirly different to have the need to point out that he might have been here illegaly. I pray he had a relationship with Jesus. And I pray you find one.
 May 29, 2016 at 6:10am
Lmfao…. Think im wrong about what i said, Then look at West Coast Patriots reply. He says I am wrong, then goes on to explain that I am right because people are fooled by speeches that promise to fix their problems. Continue reading, his overall solution to the problem is excitment that Trumps Kids will one day establish a Trump dynasty and continue a trump legacy. Hmmm, sounds an awful lot like whats already wrong with this country. Finally, revealing himself to not be conservative, (establishment republican like) he admitts that social conservatism has no place in the republican party. Which is to say that to win, we nust be more like the democrats. West Coast Unpatriot. Thank you so much for prooving my point. You did a very good job.
 May 28, 2016 at 10:03pm
The argument that Clinton, Trump, Obama, or Bush are the worst things to happen to America is a tired one at best. Reality Check time. All the names I listed only got elected because people voted for them. Obama didnt elect himself. Trump didnt win the nomination without support. The worst thing to happen to America are Americans. Sounds harsh i know, but its truth. We have gone from a nation of nothing to fear but fear itself to a nation affraid of everything. Weve gone from a nation of do it yourself to who will do it for me. Weve gone from a nation of who will do what it takes to get the job done, to a nation that wont work more than 40 hours unless you compinsate me dohble time and provide me insuance and other union bennifits. Weve gone from a nation of people who said what can we do for our country, to a nation that says what has my country done for me. We used to be a nation of men and women who raised children in the ways of the world, no we ask who is going to pay for my childs education and childcare. Yes, i am never Trump. But in reality, we deserve trump amd all the negative that comes with it. We sold our liberty years ago to have the security the govt cant provide. We will soon know the consequences. Hillary, Trump, doesnt matter. They are a product of the worst of America.
You are dead wrong. We are a nation that is controlled by an establishment controlled by big money interests, but yes, it has been the peoples fault. We are easily duped by canned speeches or those that do nothing but read others speeches from teleprompters, believing all the promises that never come to fruition, because they did not truly mean them. The enemy is not the Democrats or the Republicans, our enemies are those that are puppets of the string masters and the string masters themselves. I believe that Trump will devastate the establishment and we can begin to look at other candidates. If you have been paying close attention, Trumps children are setting themselves up for possible runs in the future. Trump will not go back on the policies he has written, or he will jeopardize any chance they may have. Oh ye of little faith. I believe the Republican Party has let us all down in many ways and it is time to set it right. Social Conservatism has no place in the Party anymore, it needs to go more Libertarian and no matter what you think about Trump (which you get from Red State or Romney or Bush and the like) he has a Libertarian streak in him and he will do good for our country where Hillary will do devastation.
May 28, 2016 at 9:50pm
West Coast Patriot, i understand you refuse to see anything other than the way you see it. Look at your response. You assume that i supported republican policies like touchback amnesty until it became a policy of Trump. I dont support any policy that grants reentry to someone that broke the law to get in here. I opposed this under Bush and I oppose it under Obama and i will oppose it under Trump. And yes, you will see the vast majority given a greenlight for reentry under trump. To me that is no different than Hillary just letting them stay to begin with. Ive been a libertarian and anti establishment longer than youve been a flavor of the month trump fanboy. A lack of logical thinking is exactly what gave us Trump, and Clinton, and Bush, and romney, and clinton and Bush Sr. Yet, hate filled Johnny Come latlys like yourself believe Trump is the answer to all your anti establishment dreams. We will see how well that works out. Then you can tell me how all the chewing on your nose to spite your face went when Donal Trump reveals his true self. But i question if your priciples are solid or will you just support trump blindly regardless of what he does. #YesNeverTrump and NeverHillary
 May 28, 2016 at 3:21pm
PricePL, using your car analolgy, if the illegals invading this country relates to the engine in a car, then why would you take that car to a mechanic who advocates a solution that involves deporting them only to have them come back with legal status. Thats exactly what his touch back program will do. They will apply by the millions and be granted residency and at some point citizenship. You need to stop taking your cars to mechanics who replace broken parts with other broken parts. You believe that because i dont support trump, then i cant be a true conservative or a patriot. The reason i struggle with supporting Trump is because his ever changing views and opionions show that he is neither a patriot or conservative. A vote for trump is a gamble. We either get the tough talker who is going to fix what he says he will fix, or we get the business man whoes core values or on the negotiating table and is willing to walk away from his promises. Typical GOP if you ask me. The difference this time is, all those who support Trump but claim they are sick of lying politicians, they will excuse everyone of trumps lies and broken promises.
 May 28, 2016 at 3:11pm
Thats a very short sided analyses. People like you are infatuated with the idea that Hillary Clinton is the worst thing that could happen. Just as Barack Obama was the worst thing that I could happen. I happen to agree with you that a Clinton presidency will be very bad. What people like you cant see, is what those of us who cant support Trump see. Which Donald Trump are we voting for? Is it the Donald who is pro life, or the one who wants to continue funding planned parenthood? Is it the Donald who wants to punish women who have abortions, or the one who changed his mind and just punish the provider? Is it the Donald who hates the idea of guns, or the one who will protect the 2nd amendment. Is it the one who loves universal health care, or the one who loves the mandate, or the one who thinks it should be private? Is it the Donald that wants American companies to produce in America, or the one whoes own clothing line is made in China? Is it the Donald who will deport all illegals, or the one who will invite them all back via a touchback program now with legal status? Is it the Donald that thought Hillary Clinton was the best, or the one that things she is the worst. You dont know who he is, or what he will do, or what he stands for. Yet you are certain that nothing can be worse than Clintom. I dont know that Trump can be worse, but based on his ever changing stances, i do know he can be the same as a Clinton.
 May 19, 2016 at 9:47pm
I happen to agree that Mitch McConnell and other liberal republicans need to be voted out. Having said that, I don’t see how replacing them with another liberal republican named Trump will change anything. But you know what Einstein said about insanity. “Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.” So you go ahead and vote McConnell out, and vote Trump in. We will see what is different.
May 19, 2016 at 9:42pm
Looking through my post, I saw no mention of any judgment I passed on you. I simply pointed out that you are eager to see a 17 black kid die because he had very tasteless views on women at the age of 17. Moreover, I happened to point out that I myself had very tasteless views of women as a teenager, and that I was lucky enough to have lived long enough to mature and change. Funny thing is, I never actually judged you. I simply pointed out that you were eager to point out Trayvon Martins flaws and said he died because he was a thug. I only asked the simple question. Have you been so perfect in your life that you will not be judged by the same standards you seem to judge Trayvon by?
