Why do he hate blacks? Is it because he belongs to the party of slavery, the party that started the Kay, Kay, Kay, the party that opposed civil rights?
If common citizens do it, they get thrown in jail so why do we let bureaucrats do it?
Why do they want to let government bureaucrats spend it for them?
A jury of his peers disagreed with you. Have you read the covenants of the HOA of the neighborhood?
On the second day after the Orlando massacre, America’s president and his would-be successors performed to type. President Obama and Hillary Clinton still want it to be about banning guns and “countering extremism”; Donald Trump wants to face the facts about radical Islam.
Obama called the perp a case of “homegrown extremism” who’d been “inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the internet.”
No mention of the killer’s father, an Afghan immigrant who has praised the Taliban. Nor of the fact that (according to some of his ex-classmates) the young Omar Mateen cheered as the second plane hit the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Our president’s big takeaways: Do more on “countering this extremist ideology” (which he still won’t name) and “think about the risks” of “being so lax” on gun control.
Clinton provided a loud echo of Obama, denouncing “the virus that poisoned [the killer’s] mind” and demanding “the removal of ‘weapons of war’ from the streets.”
She talked up renewing the assault-weapons ban passed under her husband Bill in the ’90s, which lapsed last decade — without mentioning that FBI stats show the ban did nothing to reduce gun crime.
Oh, she had one good idea: Get the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait to stop letting their people finance extremists. So why didn’t she do anything about that when she was secretary of state?
Yes, she did announce one major flip-flop: Unlike Obama, Clinton finally agreed to say the words “radical Islamism” — a term she said last December she wouldn’t use for fear of somehow offending Muslims.
Trump, by contrast, slammed the nation’s “dysfunctional immigration system, which does not permit us to know who we let into our country,” nor “to protect our citizens.”
And he renewed his call to ban “immigration from areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we understand how to end these threats.”
That would allow time to “develop a responsible immigration policy that serves the interests and values of America.”
And he gave full throat to what most Americans believe: “Many of the principles of radical Islam are incompatible with Western values and institutions. Radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti-American.”
He cited an existing outrage: “Our own FBI director has admitted that we cannot effectively check the backgrounds of the people we are letting into America.”
And he mocked the idea that gun control can make a difference. (France’s tough gun laws certainly didn’t stop the Charlie Hebdo killers or the Bataclan Paris attackers.)
He closed with a promise: “When I am president, I pledge to protect and defend all Americans who live inside of our borders. Wherever they come from, wherever they were born, all Americans living here and following our laws will be protected.
“America will be a tolerant and open society. America will also be a safe society.”
It’s hard to quarrel with that.
The reason he wasn't convicted is the kidded started the fight. And you don't know the assault by the kid had anything to do with race. Perhaps the kid tried to beat Zimmerman's head in the concrete because he didn't like Mexicans.
Right on! Who's always trying to shut down free speech on college campuses? The LWNJs are.
Well, it’s already begun—even before the bodies of the victims of the Orlando shooting can all be identified, the anti-gun commentaries have been pouring in because that makes perfect sense in the wake of a likely terrorist attack*. Nevertheless, it appears that Hillary Clinton has used the incident to call for a new assault weapons ban[emphasis mine]:
I join Americans in praying for the victims of the attack in Orlando, their families and the first responders who did everything they could to save lives.
This was an act of terror. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are hard at work, and we will learn more in the hours and days ahead. For now, we can say for certain that we need to redouble our efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad. That means defeating international terror groups, working with allies and partners to go after them wherever they are, countering their attempts to recruit people here and everywhere, and hardening our defenses at home. It also means refusing to be intimidated and staying true to our values.
This was also an act of hate. The gunman attacked an LGBT nightclub during Pride Month. To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country. I am one of them. We will keep fighting for your right to live freely, openly and without fear. Hate has absolutely no place in America.
Finally, we need to keep guns like the ones used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals. This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.
This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country.
“Weapons of war”: where have I heard that phrase before? Oh, that would be The New York Times’ op-ed that said such weapons, like the AR-15, should be banned, and that Americans who own such weapons should give them up for the “good of their fellow citizens”:
Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.
President Obama used that phrase as well when Robert Lewis Dear opened fire at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado last year. As many observed after his arrest, Dear is totally insane. In May, he was ruled incompetent to stand trial. Yet, the fact remains that when the left uses the phrase “weapons of war,” they’re talking about the AR-15 rifle.
This likely act of terrorism in Orlando is appalling, but banning assault rifles will not stop these occurrences. Rifles and shotguns are rarely used in gun crimes, and there really isn’t anything unique about them:
The Pink Pistols, an LBGTQ group dedicated to protecting the gun rights of gay and transgendered individuals, has issued a response to the Orlando terror attack and to calls for gun bans. The group is urging the public not to jump to conclusions and to focus on the violent acts carried out by ISIS follower Omar Mateen, not on the tool he used.
“The Pink Pistols gives condolences to all family and friends of those killed and injured at Pulse,” First Speaker of the Pink Pistols Gwendolyn Patton said in a statement. “This is exactly the kind of heinous act that justifies our existence. At such a time of tragedy, let us not reach for the low-hanging fruit of blaming the killer’s guns. Let us stay focused on the fact that someone hated gay people so much they were ready to kill or injure so many. A human being did this. The human being’s tools are unimportant when compared to the bleakness of that person’s soul. I say again, GUNS did not do this. A human being did this, a dead human being. Our job now is not to demonize the man’s tools, but to condemn his acts and work to prevent such acts in the future.”
The group is also urging local lawmakers to reconsider allowing sober drivers to carry firearms into bars and clubs in the future for self-defense purposes.
Just more proof Democrats are out to destroy our way of life. If 10% of the people in that club had been armed lives could have been saved. We don't need to leave people defenseless.
Dolly Kyle is a real estate lawyer who met Bill Clinton on a golf course in Hot Springs, Arkansas in the summer of 1959 when she was 11 years old and he was 12.
A thunderbolt struck, so power and intense, it was love at first sight that lasted 32 years - through all his Arkansas gubernatorial years and right up until 'Billy' - as she calls him - was on the threshold of the White House.
Dolly dated Bill all the way through Hot Springs High School together and they were close when he went off to law school at Yale.
In 1974, he told her of this woman he had moved in with at Yale. It was simply a decent place to live, a roof over his and she would never be an issue between them, he intimated.
The now 60-something Dolly didn't realize at the time that Hillary's role was financial provider, a role that started at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
'Hillary's role of providing financial security for Billy was part of her motivation for the series of financial crimes (yes, crimes) that she committed over the decades'.
'Hillary was upholding her part of the deal to get Billy elected president, after which it would be her turn to be the first woman in the Oval Office', lawyer and author Dolly Kyle writes in her bombshell book Hillary, The Other Woman, published by WND Books.
‘Billy and Hillary Clinton continue to be lying, cheating, manipulative, scratching, clawing, ruthlessly aggressive, insatiably ambitious politicians who are giving public service a bad name – and nothing about them has changed in the past forty-plus years, except that they have deluded more and more people’.
'The Clintons and their misled supporters have rewritten history to suit their political agenda, which is to get votes to get power to get money to get more power to get more money'.
'The Clintons' vicious cycle of intertwining greed and power addictions will have no limit, unless someone stands up and announces, "The emperor has no clothes!"
'Here am I', writes Dolly.
'Ideology, integrity, and love of country were never involved in the "Billary" quest for the White House.
'It was always a codependent, co-conspiratorial grab for money and power and more money and more power'.
'Unfortunately for them and for the United States of America, there is never enough to satisfy addicts'.
Dolly watched Bill Clinton grow up in Arkansas. She witnessed Hillary bringing her carpetbag to Arkansas.
'I know what really happened'. She heard it firsthand.
The 'Man from Hope', only lived in Hope, Arkansas, until the age of seven when he moved to Hot Springs.
The segregated climate in the South festered an attitude towards blacks and allowed Clinton to use the phrase 'G**damn n****r,' which Dolly heard him frequently say.
Clinton first confessed his desire to be president to Dolly back in high school and began chasing it when he was an Arkansas delegate to Boys Nation in the summer of 1963 that took him to the White House and a photo-op with President John F Kennedy in the Rose Garden.
Hillary jumped into that dream by defining herself as financial provider, so Billy told Dolly.
Her support allowed him to pursue 'his addictions to politics, power and sex'.
Bill's mother had supported the family financially while his stepfather drank. Now it was Hillary supporting him and he introduced Dolly to the woman from Yale on the evening of May 28, 1974 at the airport in Little Rock.
It was election night and Senator William Fulbright was running for re-election. He had been Clinton's champion, gave him his first Senate job while Bill attended Georgetown University; introduced him to powerful people in Washington; supported him for the Rhodes Scholarship he won; a teaching job at Arkansas Law School and his endorsement as well as intros to financial backers for Bill's first congressional campaign that he eventually lost.
Bill's plane landed and he was first to de-board followed by 'a dowdy-looking woman who appeared to be middle-aged'.
Bill greeted his lover Dolly formally with an extended hand while she checked out this mystery woman accompanying him.

'There appears to be no limit to what Hillary will do to destroy her perceived enemies,' Dolly Kyle writes in her new bombshell book
Kyle began sleeping with Bill Clinton after high school and their affair didn't end until he moved to the White House
'Billy was a sex addict; I was a codependent,' she admits in memoir that rips the lid off the power couple
Bill was undone by Wilt Chamberlain's claim to have slept with 20,000 women - That's ten times more than I've had!' he told Dolly
Dolly says Bill told her he and Hillary - who he called 'The Warden' -needed to have a baby 'so we can appear to be a normal couple'
'We need to do something serious to take attention off the Warden's lifestyle,' Bill said and Dolly suggested he sleep with Hillary
When Dolly met Hillary - May 28, 1974 - she wore a 'misshapen, brown, dress-like thing that must have been intended to hide her lumpy body'
The garment 'stopped too soon to hide her fat ankles and her thick calves covered with black hair'
'Thick brown sandals did nothing to conceal her wide feet and the hair on her toes,' Dolly said, adding that she was embarrassed and staring
I wonder what the private sector could have done with all that money.
With over 99 percent of the votes counted, it’s looking like Pedro Pablo Kuczynski will be Peru’s next president by a razor-thin victory. If the unlikely happened, his closest rival, Keiko Fujimori, would not be a bad pick for the free-market either. Both Kuczynski and Fujimori are center-right candidates leading in the presidential race and would be a huge rift from the outgoing Peruvian president, who boasts extreme leftist positions and anti-American rhetoric.
What’s happening in Peru seems to be part of a bigger trend taking place in Latin America. Nations across the region have been ousting socialist governments in exchange for center-right candidates.
A few weeks ago, the Brazilian Senate voted to temporarily remove Dilma Rousseff from the presidency, along with her Worker’s Party cabinet, and be replaced by their much more pragmatic and business friendly vice president. Columbia has also recently voted in a right-leaning government under Juan Manuel Santos. Late last year, Argentina ended a decade of leftist rule and elected Mauricio Macri as their new president. He has promised a “rapprochement” with the U.S. and Europe – a direct change from usual Argentine presidents blaming the West for any and all problems.
It’s only been three months since Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed a minimum wage bill into law and Democrats already seem to be regretting the measure they pushed so hard to get passed.
But before the ink was even dry, Democrats, who control the state House, Senate and governor's office, announced they wanted to change the bill that was rammed through in a five-week legislative session despite fierce Republican opposition.
"They just wanted to pass something," said economist Eric Fruits, a Portland Republican. "They were really worried about the 15 Now people sending something to the ballot, and I think they got so snakebit they would have passed anything that was called a minimum wage increase."
The end result was that three different wages were set for different areas of Oregon depending on population size. In rural Oregon, for example, the minimum wage would rise to $12.50, whereas in the greater Portland area it would increase to $14.75—all by 2022.
But in pushing the legislation Democrats didn’t bother waiting for state economists to weigh in and give them a better idea of how the bill would affect the state.
Last week, state analysts concluded in a prepared forecast the high wage will "result in approximately 40,000 fewer jobs in 2025 than would have been the case absent the legislation."
Orchard owner John Zielinski said his family business will? take a big hit.
"When those pears and apples are sold on the market, they're not going to give us any more money because we're from Oregon and have a higher pay rate," said Zielinski of E.Z. Orchards.
Rural counties threatened to file a lawsuit against the state, calling the minimum wage a maximum mess and an unfunded mandate. Oregon's constitution allows local governments to opt out of state programs that raise costs significantly and are not funded by the legislature.
Hearing the outcry, Democratic leaders quickly admitted they may have messed up. They promised a fix-it bill next year allowing for a lower training wages for young workers and some new hires.
Of course, not all Democratic lawmakers and activists are on board with the proposed changes.
"I think having a sub-minimum wage, while it might sound good, could end up hurting the very people we're trying to help," said Democratic state Senator Diane Rosenbaum, reports FoxNews.com.
Republican leaders are in favor, however.
Shhhhhh..........techpath thinks socialism has to be forced at the end of a government gun barrel to be worthy of a Democrat's practice.
Why are you wanting to punish rednecks? Besides doesn't she know the very first slave owner in America was a back man, several slave plantations were owned by Black slave owners and that there were over 3000 black slave owner in the city of New Orleans alone.
