Wow, what an ignorant f*ck.

Getting residents to register to vote to make changes through the election process instead of rioting & protesting.

Why are you afraid of that???

Sorry about the multiple posts. We're in the process of getting a new computer. This one's starting to act a little crazy. Must be programmed by a liberal?
Sure wish more liberals would stop acting crazy and believing such crazy things. Is that even in the realm of possibility? Because it would restore my faith in them as Americans again.
But it's late. Just catching up...and have. Night.
lol! So how are you going to know the next machine you get is programmed by the conservative son?

6th Amendment to the Constitution -

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

Show me in the Constitution where cops have the right to shoot the accused in the head. Unarmed mind you.

Police Sources Tell Reporter That More Witnesses Are Coming Forward To Confirm Officer’s Account
By Caroline Schaeffer 2 hours ago
On Friday, someone claiming to be a friend of Officer Darren Wilson, the policeman involved in the shooting death of Michael Brown, gave an account that was very different from other stories we had heard.
In “Josie’s” version of events, Wilson asked Brown and Dorian Johnson, 22, to move out of the street, before they became confrontational. When Wilson heard about the strong-arm robbery on the radio, he tried to get out of the car, and Brown slammed his door shut.
And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up. And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into the car. Punches him in the face and then Darren grabs for his gun.
*
Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off.
That account was confirmed by several sources in Ferguson speaking with CNN’s Don Lemon, who told him that it matched Officer Wilson’s account.
And Monday night, St. Louis Dispatch reporter Christine Byers tweeted that that recounting of events has been backed up by even more people on the ground in Ferguson.
This description of events contradicts Johnson’s account, who claimed Brown had his hands up when Wilson shot him in the back.
This information came after one of the most violent nights in the St. Louis suburb. Earlier that day, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) had lifted the midnight curfew the state had imposed on the city for the previous two nights, The Hill reports.
----------
First the autopsy doesn't corroborate with Dorian Johnson's version of what happened to his friend Michael Brown and now this ..... OMG....looks like the media frenzy about the gentle giant was all crap!
Sure, they will start coming out of the woodwork and Fox News will give each and everyone of them their 15 minutes of fame.

The CRA was an ostensible failure that caused the massive housing bubble we are in. Nothing like another failed liberal policy that did nothing but cost tax payers more money all in attempt to force banks to give out untenable loans. Of course, you're probably not a tax payer, so it doesn't matter to you. Typical liberal!
Really son?

So tell me.... when did they repeal CRA?

Let's see if you're as smart as you claim to be since all you have are your opinions son.....

"Pre" 9/11...Surely, you must have known that's what I meant. But rather than correct me and respond to the obvious content of the post, you wimped out.
Let's start over.
So Saddam's history of using WMDs on his enemies "pre" 9/11 wouldn't have given you any reason to believe he wouldn't have found a way to get them to the USA somehow post 9/11?
Don't wimp out again. You have no escape route this time.
Well Carol, considering your penchant for erroneous and even patently false posts it's easy to see why people would take your words for exactly how you stated them. I figured out that you were exhibiting your usual sloppiness.
9/11 didn't have a damned thing to do with Bush's disastrous decision to invade Iraq. Saddam Hussein was in his crosshairs from the day he took office.
Once again, you don't spend blood and treasure on what someone "might" do. Especially not on flimsy and fabricated evidence.

Yep, EVERY citizen has the right to use "reasonable force" to protect themselves or another person from harm. "Reasonable force" includes any force all the way up to and including "lethal force". Only a belligerent idiot throws himself at a cop and attempts to overpower him/her.

It's pretty obvious that police force needs to be dismantled from top to bottom. I find it amazing how every single one of these baggers on here have condemned all of the actions from the black side and praised all of the actions from the white side...Yet when they are confronted with being a racist they cry he loudest. Talk about hypocrites and lying maggots they don't come any lower.
Galt has gotten pulled over on many occasions after having too many glasses of wine and then giving the cops sh*t for pulling him over. Of course they don't shoot white people in Temecula.

If in that situation then yes I would. The incident was 3 minutes in duration. The man assaulted the officer and even attempted to take his gun. The officer had every reason to believe that his life was in danger.

Unfortunately the much needed sequestration was caused by your idol Obama who used that supposed crisis as a tool to deprive veterans from visiting national landmarks that were made free to the public. Of course, that two percent cut across the board didn't stop that narcissist from taking credit for the deficit dropping. However, I'm glad it happened to rectify the run away spending your thieving hero has engaged in over his tenure. By the way, I love how you dodged addressing my points.
Son, even your own people acknowledge how idiotic you are.

You're just a political tool and don't even know it...

In New Book, Ryan Takes on Stubborn GOP Orthodoxy
WASHINGTON — Aug 19, 2014, 12:19 AM ET
By PHILIP ELLIOTT and HENRY C. JACKSON Associated Press
Associated Press

As Congress hurtled toward a government shutdown in the fall of 2013, Rep. Paul Ryan looked around at fellow Republicans who were agitating to shutter national parks, federal agencies and Head Start programs.

"This can't be the full measure of our party and our movement," Ryan writes of that moment in his new book, released Tuesday. "If it is, we're dead and the country is lost."

Such moments of raw frustration pepper Ryan's "The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea," a book as much about his front-row seat as Republicans' favorite budget wonk as it is about his political future. Ryan is considered a contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination...."

"WHAT DO PEOPLE FEAR MOST?"

The results were interesting, to say the least....

Country Living magazine's top three answers were:
1. Nuclear war/terrorist attack in U.S
2. Child/spouse dying
3. Terminal illness

Ebony / Jet magazine's top three answers were:
1. Ghosts
2. Dogs
3. Registered mail

No Kidding.... And these are the people who put Obama over the top;
what would you expect?

Strange how liberal used to be considered synonymous with "free thought".
You really are an obsessed, sad, little cretin. However, here is prove that I didn't "plagiarize" anything. Now get a life.

FOX beats all cable news combined and every network station individually. You don't watch FOX because you're an ideologue on only want the opinions of socialists, AKA progressives, and not quite socialists. To you, moderate Democrats like Joe Manson are right wing die hards. But look, I am tired with trying to discuss anything with liars and/or complete idiots who are history and politically challenged. You're rather hopeless and I like it that way. Believe it or not, your ignorance provides a good laugh when one is often needed.
