These things may look harmless, but one day soon someone is going to be seriously injured or killed by one. It sure seems like there are many bozos who don’t know how to operate them safely and without violating people’s privacy. I don’t like ‘em. People are saying to lighten up over it, but will they say the same thing when one flies into their windshield, forehead, or hovers outside their teenage daughter’s bedroom window?

It sure doesn’t take much to get under Trump’s skin, and once you’re under it he has trouble shaking it off. This kind of thin-skinned fragile ego is not the guy I want making the hard decisions on foreign and domestic policy in the White House.

“This is what democracy looks like,” said one officer. More like this is what racism looks like. These Black Lives Matter activists are not interested in a meaningful dialogue about race. Whenever that opportunity presents itself, these folks get very agitated and angry and shout down any voice that might want to discuss a goal of racial equality. What they want is greater division between races. In that regard, they more resemble the KKK than civil rights activists. There are some really poisonous people leading this group.

The Whiner-in-Chief complains about the media and that is news. “They don’t treat me fairly.” Waaah, Waaah, Waaah. Get used to it Donald. You got no game. People have heard over and over how great you think you are and how awful the other guys are. Time for some details about how you are going to make America great again. Oh, and Donald, if you are going to say that the Bible is your favorite book, shouldn’t you have a favorite verse or a favorite book or a favorite story from the Bible? You should memorize Philippians 4:13. It is short and easy and could work for you. That’s my campaign advice.
Trump is like the kid at the playground who brings the ball and then demands that the other kids treat him nice or he will take his ball and go home. He is thin-skinned and petulant when anyone disagrees with him. He keeps saying he will remain loyal to the party as long as he is “treated fairly.” What does that even mean, Donald? This is politics, not summer camp. You tell us what you believe and want to do, and we will decide if we want to support you or not. Fairness has nothing to do with it. So thicken up your hide, Donald, and stop picking on folks who disagree with you. You look like a silver spoon in the mouth pansy. Do you really think we want a guy like that in the White House? Don’t see it happening.
No, the insects were clearly more intelligent than Dean...

At this point, I have no use for Ann Coulter.The woman is vicious and deliberately provocative. She distracts from reasonable dialogue.

I would describe this organization’s strategy as “Tantrum Anarchy.” Like the petulant child who throws himself on the floor and kicks and screams, their single objective appears to be to annoy the populace with their self-centered, unprecedented disregard for common decency – to gain attention by ticking people off. They spend little time discussing solutions to solve the problem. They simply chant the obvious. If they want to make an impact, they should focus on areas like reclaiming the streets of South Chicago where so many young black lives continue to be lost to violence by other young black lives.
I'm going with Alinsky tactics. Although, the blacks themselves are too ignorant to realize they are simply pawns in that game.

This guy’s a dim bulb. What would it take to justify someone shooting my child? Well, if my child, or anyone else, was committing an unlawful act and was firing at police officers or otherwise threatening them with deadly force, that would be justified. Their relationship of the perpetrator to me is not a factor.

It is a two-way street. Black lives do matter, but when some of those black lives defy the legal authority of law enforcement officers, they negate their cause. I am all for officers wearing video cameras. I think that would go a long way to holding both the officer and the members of the public accountable for their actions. Civility and respect for authority are at an all time low in this country. Maybe a little technology can nudge folks back in the right direction.
Wordweaver, the problem is these "black lives matter" scum do not care what the facts are or what the evidence is. They dismiss it and just scream their mantra of self-destruction louder.
Of course police, or anyone, should be held accountable for wrongs they commit. The problem with this segment of society (the agitators) is no one is holding them accountable for their actions and the results of those actions.
I would submit to you this case in LA, CA recently involving only one LAPD officer who was called to the scene where office workers noticed two people having sex in a car that they could see right outside their window...the officer had purchased his own recording equipment for his protection, she claimed racism was involved and was a known actress who had activism for blackness etc. He was suspended from the LAPD (no violence even occurred), because he released the video to KFI640AM radio, his case has finally been cleared up last week. A judge ordered the woman to apologize to the LAPD, and the officer in question. She wrote a half hearted letter and still tried to justify herself, the judge was not buying it and told her to rewrite the letter as the court would not accept it....she faces jail time for lewd conduct in public which she still denies. All the officer did was respond to the call and speak with her. I agree with LCDR, there is no amount of proof that can be presented once that race card is pulled. It has taken nearly a year to clear this matter up.

Who is financing these bimbos to perpetrate such lawlessness? George Soros? Sounds like his kind of thing. Greqt idea: let’s have a moment of silence for Big Mike the gansta thug who attacked a cop in Fergus and caught six slugs for his trouble. Black lives do matter. Big Mike and some of the other black perps killed by police were killed because they failed to yield to the authority and legal orders of the officers trying to do their jobs. Seattle police should have arrested their butts.

Many black people in this country are angry because they feel that white police officers are targeting them for violence. But here is the common thread you want to watch for. In cases involving black perps and white officers, almost every time the perp refuses to obey the officer’s commands. They push back, they fail to comply, they lip off. In some cases they act aggressively and come at the officer with something that could be used as a weapon. No matter what color your skin may be, you all need to wise up and follow the officer’s directives. Even if he is being an idiot, which a few of them are. If an officer acts inappropriately, you can always deal with that after things cool down. Being a cop today is hard enough already. If you are going to give them grief, then I say you get what you deserve.
Agreed. This cop was doing his job. What do we as a society expect our police to do when confronted by deadly weapons........let them walk away. Then we will have what we see in other third world countries. Because of Obama and Holder we are headed that way. They have emboldened the black youth in this country to buck the system. Prior to these two does anyone remember so many of this type of shootings? I don't.
Just do what they say and live. Threaten a cop with deadly force and he'll be going home to his family......and you won't.
No doubt, Wordweaver.
I think that most urban Blacks are taught to hate and fear the police and to not comply with their orders. We need a public service ad to teach young people how to behave when confronted by the police.
Yes, common sense dictates that you should never argue with a man holding a loaded gun.

Trump feels he can ban certain press from his events because they have not been kind to him, and then takes offense when an organization “disinvites” him for being rude to a moderator during and after a high profile debate. Is this the kind of juvenile behavior we can expect of you as an elected official, Donald. If so, you wouldn’t get my vote for local dog catcher. You are undeniably a good businessman, but the President has to be more than that. If you want to get anywhere in this race, you will need to bundle up that ginormous ego of yours and hide it away, and become a statesman. I would not bet that you can make that big of a change.
personally I am tired of statesman which is just political speak for the status quo. IMO he was attacked first and he is fighting back. Maybe not with polish, but speaking his mind.
 August 8, 2015 at 1:59am
Trump is a petulant child with very low self-esteem who must constantly puff himself up and tell everyone how great he is. He says it so often that he has convinced himself it is true. Whenever anyone calls him out on his rude comments he immediately lashes out with the personal attacks. I’ll tell you, this is not the guy I want to be dealing with crises as they arise in the White House. Wise up, America. This sideshow has been amusing, but it is time to start figuring out who is really going to be the next President. It won’t be Donald.
'a petulant child with very low self-esteem who must constantly puff himself up and tell everyone how great he is. He says it so often that he has convinced himself it is true.'.....well, that's Odumo for you.
August 6, 2015 at 10:43pm
A couple of times in the debate Trump has said he could say something insulting, but that he’s not that kind of person. Wrong, my friend. You are exactly that kind of person. Mentioning insulting things and then pulling them back is some kind of schoolyard game, Donald. You are not a man of character.
They might as well hand his job over to an illegal !

The Navy Brass in the Pentagon will not be stupid enough to bring charges against this officer. A reasonable person is probably going to argue that he should be honored for his heroism on that day instead. Clearly the DoD must come up with some strategies to protect its service members who are serving amongst the public, like at recruiting centers. Under the circumstances, it would be foolish for the Navy to go after this guy because he discharged a weapon at the scene of the attack. If they really wanted to punish the guy without causing a public relations nightmare, they could do it much more subtly by giving him less than stellar fitness reports which would lead to non-promotion and eventual discharge from the Navy. I hope that doesn’t happen. Maybe he wasn’t supposed to have a gun with him that day, but I wouldn’t hammer him for taking heroic action once it all went down.
Even if they do not bring charges, he will never be promoted again and will eventually be put out of the Reserves due to failure to promote.
The Navy does not have to bring charges to derail this Officer's career

Big Deal. As he pointed out, we all strive to limit how much we send to the IRS. Why would anyone want to give more money to the US Government? We have plenty of data to show how good the government is at spending tax dollars wisely, and who wouldn’t want the extra dollars for personal use, including giving to charities that we are actually excited about. Maybe other candidates don’t want to say this, but we all feel the same about it. Should Donald reveal his tax info, I think we will see that he has used to the tax laws to great advantage to build his empire.
