I wish Wilson would have been wearing a body camera. And I encourage everyone to push to make them mandatory in their cities and states for all law enforcement. There is no downside to them unless you are a member of law enforcement and have something to hide. Or unless you are a criminal and have something to hide.

Who said that voiceofreason ? That's no more true than saying one really bad snowstorm or even a cold winter in the midwest is proof positive that global warming isn't happening.
"The jury's decision carries "the rule of law" and people must accept it". "I join Michael's parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully," "Let me repeat Michael's father's words: 'Hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son's death to be in vain.'" - President Obama ( I"m pretty sure he's a liberal ) And I agree with what the president said. The people Michael Schaus quoted I've never even heard of. And they surely don't speak for me, Or Is that too simple for some of you to understand ?
Trying to insinuate that these so called liberals ( people that I've never even heard of ) speak for 'all liberals or democrats is as foolish as trying to say that Michael Schaus and others here at Townhall speak for all conservatives. My reaction this morning upon learning of the riots was disappointment in those who felt they couldn't express their opinions and frustrations in any other way. But then it's really difficult to put yourself in their shoes. I'm not a African American. And I don't live in the inner city. That's not a excuse for what ( some ) of these protestors have done. And I think everyone understands deep down that anger and frustration isn't exclusive to any one race, religion or political party. Oh yeah, and since when did Geraldo Rivera become a liberal ? He's the only name mentioned that I even recognized. And to be honest... I mostly agree with what he had to say. The creep comment was a bit juvenile. But I've supported the mandatory use of body camera's for more than a year now.

One of the sources of the global cooling idea for the media may have been a 1971 paper by Stephen Schneider, then a climate researcher at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. Schneider's paper suggested that the cooling effect of dirty air could outweigh the warming effect of carbon dioxide, potentially leading to an ice age if aerosol pollution quadrupled. However, Schneider soon realized he had overestimated the cooling effect of aerosol pollution and underestimated the effect of CO2, meaning warming was more likely than cooling in the long run. In his review of a 1977 book calledThe Weather Conspiracy: The Coming of the New Ice Age, Schneider stated: "We just don't know...at this stage whether we are in for warming or cooling. And in a survey of the scientific literature between 1965 and 1979, 44 scientific papers predicted warming, 20 were neutral and just 7 predicted cooling. So while predictions of cooling got more media attention, the majority of scientists were predicting warming even then. http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2008/10/global-cooling-was-a-myth.html

I see.... So poking fun at someone or satire is only acceptable if it is directed towards someone that you feel is left of far right. Is this a official rule ? Or one that you just made up ?

"Last time I looked out my front door. It was COLD ! And my front yard represents global climate. I know that because the moon revolves around me". "So of course this disproves any and all anthropogenic factor involved in climate change. And disprove's global warming" "Ocean acidification ? What's that..... " Signed, John Ransom ( Self proclaimed climate expert and professional bloviator.)
He also went on to say.... That does not mean, though, that we can't make decisions, for example, to emphasize enforcement on those who’ve engaged in criminal activity. It also doesn’t mean that we can't strongly advocate and propose legislation that would change the law in order to make it more fair, more just, and ultimately would help young people who are here trying to do the right thing and whose talents we want to embrace in order to succeed as a country. So what did he actually do.... By executive order, Improve border security. Focus on deporting those that threaten national security and public safety. Including gang member's, terrorist's, and violent criminal's. And holding accountable those undocumented immigrants that have lived in the U.S. for more than 5 years and are parents of U.S. citizens (*their children born here ) By registering and passing criminal and national security background checks millions of undocumented immigrants will start paying taxes ( and be able to stay temporarily ) in the U.S. without fear of deportation for 3 years at a time. Not quite as awful as so many make it out to be. Is it....
I didn't know N. America represented the entire globe. Wow.... That makes geography so much easier now. That, and I can begin to ignore what the climate is doing everywhere else. - Thank's for not making your readers think Michael.

Did the Dream Act actually pass in both the house and senate ? Yes.... But it was filibustered. Did S744 ( Immigration reform ) drafted in part by a republican and with more republican cosponsors than democratic ones pass in the senate in 2013 ? Yes.... Did the house refuse to vote on it ? Yes..... Other executive orders when it comes to immigration. It's just a list... So don't freak out.
