"It is neither “racist” nor “sexist” to question U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s role in the Benghazi scandal. It is, however, almost entirely beside the point."

"Rice wasn’t making life-and-death decisions on Sept. 11, 2012, when the U.S. compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi came under attack; President Obama was. Rice, therefore, is unable to answer the all-important question about what order President Obama issued upon hearing that U.S. diplomats in Benghazi were under fire. She can’t look America in the eye and answer whether the U.S. military was ordered not to rescue Americans fighting for their lives."

"Nor is Rice likely to be the Obama administration official who first concocted the false narrative blaming a YouTube video for a (nonexistent) protest in Benghazi, which, the false narrative continues,“spontaneously” erupted into “unplanned” violence -- the whopper President Obama told for two full weeks."

What Bob failed to mention was that if a 6'2", 230 lb. NFL linebacker wants to murder a woman, he doesn't need to have a gun to do it, he doesn't even have to reach for a knife, he could kill her with both hands tied behind his back.

The FBI says that about 2,000 times every day in the US, law abiding citizens pull out a gun and protect themselves from violence.

That's 750,000 times a year.

"A woman who fights back gains an 86% chance of avoiding the rape and incurs little chance of additional injury. Most injuries occur before the woman starts fighting back. Women using knives or guns in self defense were raped less than 1% of the time.(Kleck and Sayles, 1990)"

George Zimmerman was investigated by the FBI and they arrived at the conclusion that racism played no part in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The FBI made this determination about 3 months after the Congressional Black Caucus painted Zimmerman as a racist.

It seems pretty obvious now that much evidence has been released that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self defense after Martin assaulted him.

We now also know that there is a "REAL POSSIBILITY" that the Defense Team,...(Benjamin Crump, Natalie Jackson, and Daryl Parks), along with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Ben Jealous, Ryan Juilson, Corrine Brown, Sabrina Fulton, and Tracy Martin may have conspired to produce the bogus "Witness #8, Dee Dee, a minor, who turned out to be 18 years old.

Why not just post some stats to back up your side of the argument instead of behaving like a spoiled brat and throwing a hissy fit, and displaying your shocking lack of social skills?.....It's very unladylike.

You don't have anything to dispute these stats with do you?.....I didn't think so.

Rice is a very intelligent woman. She is worth millions of dollars. I can't believe she would put her career on the line. But, maybe that's the point. She has enough money to live out her life. Maybe she just didn't care. Someone made adjustments to reports. The whole thing sticks to high heaven.

Facts

Many calls went out for more security at Benghazi.

There were previous attacks.

We watched the whole episode and did nothing.

After the episode we blamed the movie.

One of the victims family was told the Movie Maker would pay for what he had done.(Can you say Clinton)

This Country isn't bullet proof. Things will happen that are bad. But, if leaders don't take responsibility we are in danger. The whole situation is now political. Four dead Americans and no real answers.

We need a Senate Select Committee to more effectively deal with this cover-up but Reid will never let that happen, unless he ever decides to throw the Commander in chief himself under the bus.

That's correct, they were justified using their weapons.

As a CCW holder here in Ohio, I can testify that you don't need to be attacked with a firearm to use your firearm. It can be a bat, a hammer, a knife, a large group of people. The law reads that anytime you have a belief that you (or somebody else you may be defending) are in jeopardy of serious bodily harm or death, that warrants you to use deadly force.

A car is easily a deadly weapon and indeed can cause serous bodily harm or death. If those rights are extended to me--your average citizen, I'm sure they are extended to the police as well. If a person is trying to hunt me down with his or her car, you bet they're getting blown away, and there is nothing the law can do about it.

Excellent post, but the liberals on this thread will condemn the police no matter what. It's what criminals do, and it shows. They also can't stomach the notion that law abiding citizens can own guns and carry them concealed.

I think that a lot of them are convicted felons and they're pissed off because they can't legally own a weapon. So they seek to ban them for everybody on order to level the playing field and strengthen their hand.

They're a dangerous brood of vipers!

Department store Santa's are very vulnerable and often become the victims of robberies. They stand outside on the sidewalk ringing a bell dressed in a Santa's suit while people stuff money into the kettle. The gang-bangers will post a stooge to watch Santa. Then when it looks like there's enough money in the pot, the gangsta will snatch it and not hesitate to thump Santa's skull if he shows any resistance.

You're on to something, but might I add, liberals believe in big daddy. All problems get solved by big daddy. People should not solve their own problems. After all, if people could solve their own problems, who needs Democrats?

So people like myself who understand a cop can't follow me around everywhere I go realize it's time to take care of myself. In most cases, a cop is only good after the crime is committed. So I am going to defend myself until the police get there.

Violent crime is lower in less restrictive gun states than those that have higher regulations such as your state of NY and other places like DC. Guns are not going away no matter how many laws are on the books. Narcotics are illegal, yet we have the highest amount of our population locked up in prison because of narcotics.

Laws only work to prohibit descent law-biding citizens from activities of a certain nature. They do not work on law breakers. That's why they're criminals in the first place; because they don't obey the laws.
