Bush's event was deliberately Cuban in flavor and feeling, designed to try to neutralize what would appear to be Rubio's natural advantage with the large number of Cubans who will vote Republican in that state's crucial February primary.

20 I am surprised there have not been more of this type of shooting. All you hear out of Barry's, Eric's and Rachel's mouth is race, race, race and it's got to be all about race. If there is any blame for all of this race hate, it is squarely on President Sotero's plate. America has become in 2015 what South Africa was in 1966.

21 Why Marco Rubio Scares All The Other Presidential Candidates

Before reading this, I'd just like to point out that Scott Walker had a totalitarian legal vendetta launched against him and his supporters for years, and was effectively elected 3 times for two terms due to the recall.

I don't think Scott Walker is the least bit scared of Marco Rubio, and these half-hearted "scandals" just seem like a bad-publicity-is-good-publicity way of giving Rubio press over the other GOP candidates.

"One of the survivors said that he reloaded five different times," Johnson said. "And her son was trying to talk him out of doing that act of killing people. And he just said 'I have to do it.' "He said, 'You rape our women. And you're taking over our country. And you have to go,'" Johnson said.

I'm afraid of Teh Roob because he's an open-borders political hack who doesn't have the good sense G*d gave turnips. And I'm afraid of him because the GOPe is all bound-up with Identity Politics and Reaching Across the Aisle, both of which ol' Marco has a pretty good handle on.

He may end up as the Excessively Tan Mutt Romney. With Democrats attacking him, idiot "Republicans" will jump to his defense and, ultimately vote for him.

If that turns out to be the case, and if the church has been vocally and publicly against SSM, I want to see every person who was interviewed in the past about Pam Geller, and spoke of her irresponsible actions provoking the Texas shooters re-interviewed.

And in their face, I want them asked if the Church had it coming to them because of inflaming the sensibilities of the Gay community.

Just from my observation in my town, Chik-Fil-A is cleaning their clock. The Chik-Fil-As are always packed. Their staff is extremely courteous, the stores are very clean, moms meet their because they have nice clean playgrounds for the kids. I almost always see the owner or manager out in the open talking to customers. CFA costs more but not that much more.

I'm curious - does CFA limit how many stores each owner can own? I know McD owners that own a lot of stores. You can't be in all those stores at once.

93 So, my Liberalest brother posted a stupid thing about how Mohammedans in America face more persecution than Christians- because some idiots protested outside a mosque with guns.

No shots were fired. No violence occurred. The police were already there protecting the Mohammedans. The Mohammedans in question invited the idiots inside- the invitations were largely accepted, and everyone came away with more respect for each other than when the day started.

This is "persecution" of Mohammedans.

Yet being forced to choose to deny one's faith or lose one's business is not "persecution."

And I'm absolutely sure this won't be "persecution" of Christians "because it was just one guy" or "Well it's not persecution by the State" or any of an hundred other excuses.

My prayers go out to the survivors, for their comfort, and to those wounded, for healing, and to God on behalf of the dead, for his Mercy and Grace.

And, yes, it is sick that the murder of Christians in one state will be used to attack Christians in other states.

He shared with me that there were three actual physical fight type incidents yesterday at his High School.

One involving the actual assault on the School Resource Officer (Armed Baltimore County Police Officer).
One involved a student in the schools's admin Office.
One involved two female students in the cafeteria.

In each case, the student was a member of the 20% of the Student Body who list their race as black.

I think it's important for us to observe and responsibly deal with violence. For example, white males do more mass shootings, blacks speed more often, and illegal immigrants like to drive drunk and rape. We shouldn't use these trends to break our society apart, but accept them and address them proactively. So we should fix our mental institutions to put crazies in the wacko basket, not get mad at cops for pulling over blacks more often, and kick the darn illegals out after putting them in jail for a miserable spell.

138 This is one of those marginal commerce clause cases.

I'm going to let you ruminate on that statement for a little bit.






1) There is no such thing as a "marginal commerce clause case." Just because SCOTUS says there is doesn't make it true.

2) Note that the ban is on selling of ingredients with trans-fats across state lines. It is a blanket ban on selling food with trans-fats. Even if you accepted "marginal commerce clause" then the authority granted to the US government would only go so far as to banning interstate trade of trans-fats foods. So then every state in the union would have a factory making those foods pop up overnight.

The Federal National f*cking government does *not* have the Constitutional authority to tell me what I may or may not eat.

I think it's a difference in Franchise models. McD's used to allow their franchisees a fair amount of latitude and since they were basically a money mint when I worked there (mid-2000s) franchises just sat back and let the dough rolled in.

I worked a corporate store and we did not like the double standard we were held to. Corporate sent down it's agents to ensure everything was up to snuff, while franchise stores pretty much let everything go to shit and never got punished.

Back in 2009, during the height of the Tea Party, there were crotchety old Americans who warned in dark tones about the dangers of this president. He was a socialist, they said, and feckless to boot. He hated the American Founding and the men who built the foundations of this country. He would lead us into war and ruin and despair, and he would tear down the monuments to our heroes along the way. He was anti-American through and through, in ways that us youngsters did not understand. When they said this, I would disagree as politely as possible.

By "marginal" I meant "really close to the line."

Again though it's only close because of the level of interstate trade we have these days.

I think you're right that they can only ban sales across state lines. Practically though (given modern supply chains) that *is* a de facto ban. I highly doubt Pillsbury is going to upend it's supply chain to keep transfats.

Now the process of course does matter, so they've harmed us by carrying out actions beyond their power. But the end result would have been the same regardless.

I'd remind you that the fall of transfats started when New York City banned them. Which, although you may disagree with the legitimacy of it is not an unconstitutional action that I can see.

McD's is no less healthy than Chipotle or most other places.

A lot of McD's woes probably come down to simple competition, complacency, and changing marketplace.

"They are setting the Narrative about the Charleston shooting so that it
won't matter what the actual facts of the case turn out to be."

Exactly. The LIV's will digest and always remember the initial narrative as reported by the MSM and never find out or even care about the facts and details that come out later. Just like the "hands up, don't shoot" and campus rape hoaxes and the other BS propaganda endlessly streamed to the masses.. The LIV short attention span is one of the Dems greatest assets.

Of course, I'm a fan of real fats. Butter. Lard. Shortening. Food made with these things just tastes better. But that does not change the unconstitutionality of the ban.

As for the NYC ban- I agree, that was the first domino to fall. Which makes me very angry- the States (and to a similar extent- cities and counties) are supposed to be "laboratories of liberty," not "Test tubes of tyranny."

But maybe the wig he had access to or, to make it more complicated, he might have decided on something that was unusual enough to draw people's attention. Before surveillance cameras were so ubiquitous, people planning a robbery or murder would often use putty, rubber cement or makeup to give themselves some distinctive feature that witnesses would fix on like a big misshapen nose, a scar or some other prominent feature which was discarded after leaving the scene of the crime.

An early 20s white man sitting at the side of the pastor of an AME church in a prayer meeting strikes me as highly unusual in itself. Even if he'd never pulled a trigger or had any evil intent, he'd likely be EXTREMELY uncomfortable, socially speaking.

Every lab pursues a bad idea at some point.

Having said that, I think the NYC mess is evidence of my point. They didn't just start making 2 different things, they just eliminated it.

I prefer real fats as well. Everything is more awesome since I switched back to butter (except for some spreadable stuff.)
But the poly/trans fats are easier to work with and more stable on the shelf.

Hardee's - best hamburger, good chili dogs and biscuits; generally mediocre facilities; service spotty

McDonald's - doesn't win in any category but generally decent food; facilities from very good to dismal; service spotty

Wendy's - hamburgers generally good; facilities spotty; service generally good

Burger King - yak, they microwave assembled burgers to heat them up after sitting for who knows how long. facilities poor; service poor

Well, we could parse the word hate all day. I understand your point.

My view is that the ability to willfully take another person's life is by definition a hateful act. I don't mean a hate crime in the sense that our legislatures have defined it. I mean "hate" in the sense of an act against humanity. In some of these cases it seems like an act of self-loathing (hate) turned outward against innocent victims.

wonder if this guy was on meth, he looks deranged in the picture. and angry, perhaps he chose people at a church because of guilt in being such a creepy mean ass himself.

353 If the government cannot tell me whether I can put a dick in my mouth,
the government most decidedly cannot tell me whether I can put a donut
in there.


I'm in full agreement, but I believe the standard snotty reply is "The FDA isn't saying you can't eat a donut, they're just telling the donut makers they have to use oil that will make the donut appealing if the donut is more than an hour old, i.e, shipped to a store for you to purchase because you're one of those chumps with a job that doesn't leave you all morning to bike to the hipster district to get a fresh artisanal donut."
