Why would any Fox employee think this debate would be anything but rigged? Are they really that naive?

Huckabee further disqualifies himself from ever becoming president.

If the man was out for only three weeks after serving a long prison sentence for a similar attack on a gay pride march ten years ago, maybe, just maybe, he's not ready to be reintegrated into society. Or perhaps he needs to be in a mental institution since he's a danger to others.
An ultra-Orthodox Jewish man attacked revelers taking part in Jerusalem’s annual gay pride parade on Thursday, stabbing and injuring six of them, police and witnesses said.

More overreaction by the police. Knocking on the wrong door merits shooting and a massive martial law-esque manhunt?
Three teenagers were shot at and hunted down like dogs early Saturday morning after mistakenly knocking on the door of a New Jersey State Trooper in Sparta. The teens reportedly had left a high-school graduation party and were attempting to meet a friend at his home on West Mountain Road. Instead, they erroneously went to … … Continue reading →

How much money and resources were spent because some cop, and an entire department are pants-wetting little girls?

Wow, the prosecutor pulled no punches in his remarks.

Also, FTA: "She and other family members said that if it were not for the body camera worn by Officer Tensing, his story would have been accepted, and he would have gone unpunished."

This is very, very true. What evidence was there to contradict him, if his fellow officers were ready to believe the marks on his clothing were the results of being dragged and not falling on his butt after killing Samuel Dubose.

Also also FTA: '“This doesn’t happen in the United States, O.K.?” [the prosecutor] said. “People don’t get shot for a traffic stop.”'

Sadly, it is what's it's become. Yes, policing is dangerous and walking up to a car can be very dangerous. Recently in Boston, an officer was shot as soon as he walked up to the driver's window, without warning or provocation. That's the rarest, most extreme case, but clearly not what happened here nor what was about to happen.
The officer, Ray Tensing, is accused of killing the driver, Samuel Dubose, during a traffic stop near the campus on July 19.

 I agree and strongly support cops wearing Cams whenever they are on duty.
 Cams protect good cops.

Based on the spectacular success in Iraq, I'd say the defense contractors and corrupt officials on both sides would be the big winners. US soldiers & taxpayers and the Iranian people? Not so much.

Trump is probably right. If we were to elect him president, it would prove to the world that we, as a country, need adult supervision.

+Michael Bramlett Really? Because I'm talking about you. 

"If a person is White and leans conservative today in this country then they already are a racist."

That is, ironically, the second most bigoted thing I have heard all day. Only because I just got done talking to someone who believes there is such a thing as "Christian Taliban" and that they took over Texas. You are, at the least, on par with +John Poteet

That's not a good thing. I'm a young, conservative male of mostly Italian decent. Do you think that I am racist, Mike? Are you going to make that assumption only knowing that I am a conservative Italian male? 

That's a rhetorical question. You already have (see above quoted text), and you are perfectly wrong. Or are you going to argue now that I am indeed a racist, knowing yourself nothing about me that I have not relinquished to the public domain?

At least he's consistent.
Mr. Trump's first appearance in The Times was on the front page, but below the fold.Credit

Scott Walker wants to ride around on Harleys to create a tough guy image and appeal to older males, but Harleys are proudly made by union workers, the same unions Walker despises and wants to dismantle. Awkward...

And yet those same folks will vote for him against their own self interest which is how he keeps getting elected.

One middle aged male candidate challenged another middle aged male candidate (also inexplicably the frontrunner) to a pull-up contest. For reals.

Trump has said Perry lacks the "brain power" to run for president.

Yeah it's a high paying full time occupation while in holding pattern for the ever so important pullup contest.
Spam, huh?

I think the ancient Greeks had the right idea having the Olympics held in the same place every four years. I mean, it's in the name for crying out loud. Or, a permanent venue on each continent and the Olympics, World Cup, etc rotate among them. Build it once instead of bankruptcy cities and countries every four years..
Mashable
Hosting the Olympics ain't what it used to be -- so what does the future hold for one of humanity's great sporting spectacles?

Story
Tagline
One man web development army
Introduction
I have been doing web development since 1995. It was mostly a steam-powered, punch-card-controlled affair back then.
Bragging rights
Learned one dead language, an archaic form of another and bits of pieces of two modern ones. Forgot them all, then taught myself Perl, HTML, JavaScript & CSS and now Selenium & jQuery. Co-inventor of Tellurium (http://te52.com) and the PBehave testing language. Nothing I post should be considered to be the views or opinions of anyone else or even myself because sometimes I post stuff just for the lulz.
Education
  • Boston University
    Classical Languages and Literature, 1991 - 1995
Great centrally-located coffee shop. Wide variety of coffees available and the house blend actually tastes like coffee should, unlike the weak or burnt varieties featured at the national chains. Nice window seats to people watch, too.
