Ferguson Protestor Curses Out Fox News Reporter for Calling Late-Night Clashes ‘Child’s Play’
“Say that sh*t. I don’t give a damn you’re on TV, say that sh*t,” the unidentified man cursed at Harrigan.“We see this sh*t every day. This is just child’s play? Who is the child playing with toys? That’s them.”
“I don’t want to argue with you,” Harrigan told the man.
Fox went back to Smith in studio while Harrigan attempted to calm down the situation. The anchor gave some introspective thoughts on how an incompetent police force (“Keystone Cops,” he said) and the media have seemingly fanned the flames of discontent.

you were saying?
and i have no yearning to become one of the most uninformed. plenty of you running around here already as it is.
Seriously? This is what you call newsworthy? The reporter was simply commenting that peaceful protestors went home at dusk and, since it was getting late, the few protestors who were still hanging around were running into tear gas intentionally and just putting on a show.

The point he was making is there wasn't any serious protesting going on anymore after dusk. Therefore, the protesting still going on was "child's play"...in other words, not that serious.

Did you watch the entire video? Maybe it will give you a better perspective.

How much federal money went into preparing the ranch to be a "second White House"?
Obama's home is in the city. It would not be possible to arrange long term security at that location.
The President can be involved anywhere he is in the same manner as Bush.
You continually ignore that Bush vacationed much much more than Obama does.
What difference does it make that Obama golfs & Bush rode bicycles or Reagan hid out at his ranch.
Golfing less than once a week seems to be such an issue, what activity do you permit a President to partake? I keep asking you Carol & you keep failing to answer.
It cost a heck of a lot less than Obama's Air Force One transportation to Hawaii, Colorado, Martha's Vineyard, New York and everywhere else he flies to live it up and fundraise on our dime plus the hefty cost of his extensive entourage every time he boards his private plane and checks into five-star resorts.

Conversely, to claim Bush purposely lied to go to war is beyond inane borderline cumbersome. The idea he would mislead the American people so he could engage in something as serious as that speaks volumes of your ignorance. Perhaps you should learn to demarcate between a mistake based on the Intel he was given nd a lie? There is a major difference there. By the way, ask the Kurds if there were any WMD's? What about the 500 tons of Uranium Oxide Bush removed over there? Oh wait, that doesn't fit the liberal narrative or what the dishonest media promulgated back then now does it?
Actually, there is plenty of evidence that Bush/Cheney wanted to invade Iraq rom the start & were just looking for an excuse. It is common knowledge that dick Cheney used to run over to the CIA & see if they found that excuse yet.

The idea that Bush?Cheney cherry picked the intel to lead us to war is actually a fact.

The idea that Bush invade Iraq for WMDs and upon finding none changed the reason to 9-11. & when no 9-11 ties were shown, we invaded to spread democracy.

Look at you, making excuses. That 500 tons of Uranium Oxide was under UN control.

One sign that you are wrong is the dumbass excuses you are making up.

Bush/Cheney wanted revenge for the attempt on Bush Sr & to create a US friendly oil source in the Middle East.

Democrats War on Women continues:

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, without naming any names, claimed in a new book that male colleagues made off-color remarks about her appearance – with one even allegedly squeezing her stomach and telling her:“Don't lose too much weight now. I like my girls chubby.”

The 47-year-old Democratic New York senator discussed her new book,“Off the Sidelines,” in an interview with People, which published the excerpts.

In 2010, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reportedly called her “the hottest member.”

All you're doing is proving that everyone involved in the worldwide Intel lied to the Democrats too or that they were the only ones too stupid to know they were being lied to.

Did the UN lie to them too?

Stop insisting on proving how dumb your side can be.

"Former Iowa Republican official admits to taking payment for support of Ron Paul’s presidential bid
Kent Sorenson said he was paid $73,000 to switch his allegiance from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul in 2011

In this Dec. 28, 2011, file photo, Iowa State Senator Kent Sorenson speaks at a rally for Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, at the Iowa State Fair Grounds in Des Moines, Iowa. Sorenson resigned from office Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2013, after investigator Mark Weinhardt’s report concluded Sorenson likely broke ethics rules in receiving $7,500 in monthly income from Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s, R-Minn., political action committee and presidential campaign in exchange for working as Bachmann’s state chair in 2011. The state senator received a $25,000 check from a high-ranking official in Ron Paul’s presidential campaign days before ditching Michele Bachmann to support Paul, and eventually received $73,000 in payments that may be linked to Paul’s campaign, the independent investigator has found.(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, file)

A former Iowa state senator who abandoned then-presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to endorse Ron Paul a week before the 2012 Iowa caucuses has pleaded guilty to “concealing payments” from Paul’s campaign in exchange for his support, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.
In December 2011, state senator Kent Sorenson, then the Iowa chairman for Bachmann’s campaign, made a surprise announcement that he had switched his endorsement to Paul. At the time, Sorenson said he made the decision based on his support for Paul’s policies, but this week he admitted to accepting tens of thousands of dollars from the Paul campaign as part of the deal. According to a DOJ release,“from October to December 2011, he met and secretly negotiated with a second political campaign to switch his support to that second campaign in exchange for concealed payments that amounted to $73,000.”
The payments were delivered in $8,000 installments, which were “concealed by transmitting them to a film production company, then through a second company, and finally to Sorenson and his spouse,” the DOJ statement read.
“An elected official admitted that he accepted under-the-table payments from a campaign committee to secure his support and services for a candidate in the 2012 presidential election,” DOJ Assistant Attorney General Caldwell said in a written statement.
Paul, a Texas Republican who retired from Congress in 2013, went on to place third in the state caucuses behind Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. He continued to campaign through the spring and ended his run in May 2012. Paul’s son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, is considering his own bid for the presidency in 2016...."
nobody cares.....

Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann are both retired....

Aren't you just a teeny weeny bit curious what the UN meant by "serious consequences" if Saddam had thumbed his nose up at them and the rest of the world one more time?

Because if there's any criticism on my part of Bush taking down Saddam's regime when he did, it's not knowing what those "serious consequences" would have been.

But, even so, the UN gave him 15 resolutions and years of time to get rid of his WMDs. They probably would have been surprised too.
