'Just Let People Have Their Beliefs': Blaze Readers React...

I agree with that. You live your life the way you want to and I will live my life the way I want to. You don't enforce your morals and belief on me and I wont enforce my morals and belief on you.  (Dec 17, 2014 | post #23)

Hundreds protest chokehold death in Baltimore, DC

First a little background. I have for over twenty years worked in the Mental Health field and have had to do take down on many a violent person, but only as a last resort as I prefer to talk people down. And watching the video, I understand why the officer charge was not indicted. They charged the wrong officer. Eric Garner was an obese 340 lb Asthmatic and in the video you can see one of the Officer laying across his chest, something I am taught NEVER to do. You lay across the chest of some one morbidly Obese and they might stop breathing on you. You lay across some one who suffers from Asthma and they may quit breathing on you.. Lay across the chest of a 340lb asthmatic you should not be surprised they quit breathing. So people are pointing to the Officer who did something that looks Icky, not some one who do something very dangerous. Also I understand there was a female Sergeant in charge not seen on the video.. In my training if possible we have the person in charge of the take down stay back and observe and makes sure everything goes right and no one is hurt too bad.. Why she did not correct the Officer laying across the chest or applying the chokehold immediately I don't understand but as she was the one in charge her name needs to be on the top of any indictment. If you are in charge you are responsible.  (Dec 7, 2014 | post #153)

I could support doing away with the death penalty if they brought back real hard time for murderers. That is No video games , not netflix no visit from Girlfriends/boyfriends etc. Just an 8X8 foot grey cell, with three meals a day and if you want to see sunshine be prepared to make big rocks into little rocks.  (May 13, 2014 | post #16)

Botched execution leads to fatal heart attack

I could support doing away with the death penalty ,but only if it was replaced by a life sentence of doing hard time. No electronic games , no cable TV, no netflix, just an 8x8 foot cell and if you want to see sunshine you got to break big rocks into little ones.  (May 1, 2014 | post #27)

I did. They include Japan, very peaceful and crime free country. Sri Lanka, people there are very warm a friendly, Taiwan, very nice place to visit, South Korea, clean street and very modern place, the Bahamas, a very nice place for a vacation, and Bostwana, considered the most Democratic country in Africa..I consider the above very good company.  (May 1, 2014 | post #26)

One problem I think we have is many people seem to think that unless you go to a Good college and get a degree you are doomed to be poor forever and a failure in life. My youngest brother joined the Marines, learned how to work on Jet engines and does well working for South West Airlines. I went to a community College and work as a Tech now in a Hospital,and while Im not rich, Im not poor either, owning my own home here in California with food on the table and cloth on my back.  (May 1, 2014 | post #154)

As far as violence and minority neighborhoods go, here one thing I do know. As a kid I thought nothing of going into a Hispanic neighborhood to shop, visit relatives or go to a Restaurant. THEY WHERE SAFE TO GO INTO. And even today my wife buys her produce at a Hispanic market as they have better quality and prices. But when the War on Drugs came, and fight that used to be solved with fists where now solved with AK 47's and the neighborhoods became less safe. The War on drugs has more to do with violence in the inner cities then what happen 150 years ago.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #147)

Interesting fact. 14.6 % of Marriages are now interracial. And mixed race is the fastest growing group according to the census. So under affermative action should we treat some one who is 1/4 Hispanic the same as some one who is full Hispanic? How about Some one of German descent from Chile or Argentina?Dark skin Afro American different then light skin Afro Americans? if you treat everyone equel its easy, otherwise we are going to have to come up with race rules that make the Caste system of India look simple.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #145)

I am going to disagree with almost everyone about so called "White privilage". Yes i agree it exist, but only for a Minority of upper class white people. Most of us are not going to get into a good school because we are a legacy. Most of us are not going to inherit a truck load of money. Most of our children are going to go to top rank School district. If anyone thinks white privilege is Universal, I suggest heading to the Nearest Denny's and tell a white waitress working a 16 hour shift to support her kids that being White is worth $256,000 a year to her and see what she says.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #144)

Got bad news for you. In California public school are primary funded by the STATE. And I think we rank last in the Nation now, behind even Mississippi. So if you want the States to take over, better take a close look at my home.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #142)
