The fact that a police officer shot an unarmed man in the back can't be disputed.

And neither will the police.

Wow. That was an awful thing to say.
So parents who lose a child, siblings who lose a brother, grandparents who lose a grandchild do not deserve your sympathy?
He wasn't just a comedian. He was also a father, husband and friend. He was a huge supporter of our troops. He was dedicated to the mission of St. Jude Children's Hospital both with his money and his time. And if his death does anything, I hope that it finally makes this nation take mental illness seriously.
I spoke of the people that I know who professed to have a call from God on their lives to become missionaries in the places that they went to. Like all people who profess to be Christians, only God knows what is truly in their hearts. However judging by the fruit that they nurtured and grew during their time in the mission field, I can only believe that it was true.
Wow. This article is worse than most of your articles, Ann. I come from a family of missionaries as well as serve in a church that participates in not just mission trips but sending missionaries out in the world - some in the US and most overseas. The one thing that every single one of these people have in common is that they have a call from God on their lives to serve in the country that they are in. I do not have very strong feelings about the ebola patients. However, I do have very strong opinions about second guessing my God. In this case and every case, I side with Him.
There's actually a lot of truth in that. Too many people now feel comfortable HAVING sex with someone but not talking about it beforehand - rather that discussion is about STDs or pregnancy.
I flew last weekend and had no problems with TSA agents. The ones that I encountered were pleasant and even joked around with us. However it is the other people in line that provided the holds ups - not taking their laptops out of the bag, leaving their shoes on, etc. If you just read the rules and follow them, you will speed through the lines with no problem.
Correct, will_ethan. That's why I prefer to call them pro-birth. It fits most conservatives better than pro-life. They want women to have children, but they don't give a damn about them after.

I personally do not believe that most politicians understand what the middle class experiences. How could they? For most, they are far removed from poverty or middle class existence even if they were there previously in life. I don't understand rich people problems either. Or third world problems. I understand middle class, single parent balancing a full time job and motherhood problems. It's impossible to fully understand what you haven't experienced. That doesn't mean that some politicians do not care about what others experience. However, for most, it's a game. It's not even a job. It's a game. It's about bringing in the most money that you can by saying what you have to say. It's about winning votes by saying what you have to say. And then each term is about voting the way that you have to vote to get re-elected or governing how your base wants you to.
