Policing a Riot

Thanks for another example of why I will never vote for a Libertarian. A Libertarian is a flightless, oddly- plumed hybrid of a Liberal and a conservative, combining the worst attributes of each. Moral idiocy seems to be the core of the Libertarian loony fringe philosophy. Ferguson is NOT the fault of the police, btw... Anyone who thinks so is looking at the world thru the wrong end of the telescope.

Racial Irrationality on the Right

Rand Paul—who, at one time, I was strongly disposed to support—has recently made shameful comments concerning the shameful goings-on in Ferguson. “Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system,” Paul said, “it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them.” If Rand Paul made that statement, he lost my vote. The lack of basic common sense in that statement would and should disqualify him from any higher elected office. Another fake 'conservative' who has swallowed (and is dispensing) the left-wing progressive BIG LIE..
no, but you hear an LOL

The Problem With The Right Part 2

Hunter chooses to pick on the GOP establishment's usual suspects for the failure of the GOP's political agenda: the social conservatives (basically telling them, "get over yourselves; the ship pulled out on these issues a long time ago"). Really got to give the devil his due on this one: there's some truth in what he says. Too many conservatives, for too long, have been looking to a political party (the GOP) to do for them, in the legislative arena, what ONLY the Church can do in the spiritual realm, as it touches the hearts and minds of men. The GOP is a political party, not aldermen in a local church. On the flip side of the coin, the GOP, as a party, has failed miserably to enunciate a vision of what it stands for, and where it wants to take this country. The GOP leaves itself 'wide open' to the charge it stands for nothing more than serving its corporate sponsors, and keeping its place at the 'pork barrel' as long as it's able to.
Another tired diatribe, repeating the same old clichés, from the same old tired liberal/left-wing playbook. It hasn't worked for 50 years, and it never will, but clueless liberals continue to parrot it, because that's what Liberals do.The "Poe-leece" targeting black youth are not the problem. The problem is a black culture that is mired in hopelessness, dependency, and left-wing victimization politics (which this column is 'full of'...pun intended). What is going to 'fix' the problem with the black culture in this country is not the police 'standing down', it will be the black culture itself beginning to take responsibility for its own actions, and take corrective steps to cure the social and moral breakdown in their families and culture, and stop blaming others for the crime, the poverty, and the social breakdown occurring in their culture.

Up In Flames... In The Heartland

A void exists at the heart of the black community, and the race card artists aren't filling it. Those who loot and burn their own neighborhood- to protest the shooting of a hooligan who assaulted a police officer...whether the shooting was justifiable will be determined later by a jury- have an emptiness at the core of their being that no government program or affirmative action program will fix.

Every heard of the phrase, "non sequitur"? Look it up. Your comment is a whole string of non sequitur statements!

Murky (and possibly dishonest) column. Was this about a young man (with a lengthy criminal history) who was in the wrong place and the wrong time and who was shot after assaulting a police officer? (whether the police officer was justified in using deadly force will be decided by a Grand Jury and, possibly, a jury). Or was it about the increasing militarization of the nation's police forces? And why try to make a 'racial' connection between the two? And why put the 'racial' spin on it? If a young white man with a lengthy criminal record was in the wrong place and the wrong time and assaulted a police officer, very likely there might have been a similar outcome. People who 'look' for trouble, or place themselves in a situation where trouble can find them, generally will find it (no matter what their race is)

Robin Williams: Comedy and Tragedy

Andy544 Wrote: Aug 14, 2014 5:34 PM
" Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4- spoken by Jesus Christ) Without God's presence in our life and God's words ministering His grace and Life to us daily, and keeping our soul alive, we die. Period. Many know this; but many scoff at this knowledge and reject it (thereby deliberately avoiding truth and hiding behind man-made labels such as 'clinical depression', etc.). What might be a 'teachable moment' in their lives (such as the shocking, sudden death of Robin Williams) is quickly buried beneath lies, subterfuge and false definitions. Jesus Christ also said, "Unless you repent, you shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3)

Roy-WV- "NOW-As to a Legitimate Candidate-AT LEAST IN YOUR MIND-tell us about "Him Her"!" Wish I had a word of wisdom to enlighten you with. I don't see ANYONE on the so-called 'right' to fit that definition. That includes, Cruz, Rand Paul, Rubio, etc... Any GOP who has been a candidate before now.... forget it...
