“Still didn't make it a good idea. With 20+ years of experience I'm sure his political agenda was heard loud and clear. He apologizes to the family of Trayvone Martin for his being used...but he never apologizes for even purchasing or using the targets made to depict Trayvon Martin!? Even as a non-shooting tool this was a bad idea. Shouldn't he feel used for someone else's political agenda by purchasing these targets to begin with? There are many others to choose from. I say, bad idea, insensitive and has his own agenda.”
“"White people and other people need to go to these streets and educate promote awareness and be willing to die to save a city." By that do you mean all people? All races, genders and sexual orientations? Or did you mean, white people and "others"? That does sound like the South in 50's.”
“Ever been in a fire? Many people haven't but sometimes the smoke can get so thick and move so quickly it can take you out before you know it. Once your lungs get partially filled you may not recover. It's not like the movie fires. Obviously, this was a very bad fire. Judging from the photo this house was easily engulfed.”
“Simple answer; the deputy is NOT a responsible gun owner. That in spite of the fact he is a law enforcement officer. It's very sad he lost his wife. Hope the entire department has a full review of firearm safety every 6 months. It can only help to save lives.”

“Absolutely! Why were they laying loaded firearms within the reach of small children. This is a sad story, but it was avoidable. I believe the Sheriff's Department should not dismiss this so casually as just an "accident." Gun owners are responsible for allowing access to their weapons, especially, police officers. I understand that they may want to give the guy some time to grieve, but this should be addressed before he returns to duty at an elementary school.”

“Never really cared much for Matt Lauer. Though Ann was very good. NBC execs didn't handle this well at all. Haven't watched again since few days after the debacle. Maybe when Lauer is out I'll watch again. Honestly, hope the show crashes and burns!”
“First rule when your going to "clean" a gun...find the safest location in your home. That means a room where your alone, no distractions and have a safe direction to point the gun. Then unload and triple check to be sure it's unloaded. A child and a television in a room while cleaning a firearm is always a bad idea. Very sad for this family.”
“I think this does a lot. Teens, boys and girls, will all learn that there are consiquences. You can choose your actions; you can't choose the consequences of them. She made mistakes that hopefully others girls will learn from. The parents, on all sides, have to look themselves in the mirror as well. This should be a wake-up call too ALL parents. The boys in this case committed a low and life altering crime. I believe something good will come from this punishment as they grow into adulthood, with the support of their parents. Scariest of all is out of all the people in the know during this event, nobody did the right thing for the victim. Many more than these two were culpable. Including whoever provided booze to these kids.”
“Nothing reported so far assures us he's not in San Diego at La Quinta, Motel 6 or Los Cabos for that matter! They have reasons to suspect he's in the mountains but only time will tell. I wouldn't call him a genius just yet; could be they just haven't found his body yet.”

“More like Motel 9mm Glock! From my perspeective, he's a, ok, maybe not a genius but a very smart guy who can survive in the wilderness. At leaast that's where he's most likely to be. We'll see but we all know his days are numbered, either through confrontation or self-inflicted means.”
“While the employee clearly broke company policy, this Pastor was way out of line. Don't want tp tip, don't tip. But then you probably shouldn't go out to eat places that required people to serve you. Don't think because you give God 10% you should be looking for a pat on the back. Your doing what your suppose too as a Christian. If you think that deserves a reward, your not a true Pastor. Wonder how you manage to touch people for His glory with this kind of attitude! You probably miss many opportunities to enrich others but you clearly choose to tear them down. I hope your pleases with your actions, I can't imagine God is.”

“The issue for the employee is whether he or she broke a written policy the server was aware of and that is an issue supposedly not addressed in Applebees' employees' manual. Applebees like most restaurants has a policy that 6 or more people at a table means they assess the gratuity and add it to the bill. Last time I ate at one it was stated right on the menu. If the pastor did not like that then she should not eat there. But no matter what she should not have taken out her dislike with the policy on the server.”
“Mr Linkins, it's a bit early in the game for this gossip column; it hasn't been 30 days into President Obama's second term. Sooo many things are moving and new developments (read tap dancing) by the GOP leadership; National debates which will affect us well beyond the 2016 Elections. Any politician who would notify every one with an agenda, their candidacy 3+ yrs out and two weeks after health issues, would have to be a nut!
I have to believe your sharper than this Mr Linkins and that this hot mess was meant purely for rabble-rousing jest..”

“She is constantly being asked if she will run. I agree it's a bit early with the election nearly 4 years away but it is a question that is asked of her at every opportunity.”
“It seems even the most obscure articles bring out the political pundits. With that said, I think both Dems and GOP'ers have pooped and mole wacked us for so long, there really isn't much in "victory" these days. All play the same stupid games...they just get pissed at each other when one outsmarts the other at the old tricks of the trade.”

“He had his "speech". Even if by most accounts he wasn't very good. He wasn't jailed or stoned. He was a paid performer who failed to perform up to an reasonably acceptable level. He could have done that song and moved on to others. However, he stayed stuck on his "speech" rather than do the job he was paid for. Not to mention it was in poor taste given the venue. No surprise he was booted off the stage. I doubt any performer who stays stuck on one song for 30min is going to last long that night.
Obviously, he had his say.”
“This is something that ultimately will scar her life. Hopefully she can get the proper attention and care to deal with this. Likewise, these young punks should also have to deal with this the rest of their lives. Those guilty of rape should NEVER be given anything less than a minimum 10yr prison term. In concert, up the stakes to minimum 15yrs. Should be a Federal crime which would follow Federal sentencing guidelines.
I hope this video (I wouldn't watch it myself but glad it's out there) follows them for life. Everytime they want to get close to any woman, they'll always have this as a calling card!”

“I hope it follows them for life too. It will definitely affect the young woman for life. It is chilling that they can commit such a vicious crime to begin with, let alone laugh about it. What does this say about young males? Many are being raised on violent video games and movies and porn--and have become monsters that are less than human. The parents of these boys are a factor as well. They should be totally ashamed of themselves.”
“Ok, how high is actually too high?
There was no helmet to helmet? Chancellor struck with Davis sqaure in the chest. There is no "neck area" to hit. Neck area only reffers to horse collar tackles.
Receivers are commonly struck on the way down in the proccess of a catch.
In other words, this is a play that cannot be defended.
According to that argument that Chancellor should be penalized; if the issue being height, Davis should not have been hit until he landed or until he was closer to the ground? Or is it the issue that he was close to hitting Davis in the head?
Clearly the hit was in the chest. It was a violent hit, but clean. Your talking about split seconds and inches at high speed, 30-40mph.
Basically I see two solutions, both of which I feel are as ridiculous as the flag.
The receiver should not be allowed to leave the ground with both feet and/or be allowed to down with a rough two hand touch!
BTW Merry Christmas!!!”

“You're catching on - its a judgement call by the refs, but they all made the same call at the same time. Hit a defenseless receiver above the numbers with your shoulder and or helmet, t and it's half the distance to the goal. Now if anybody knows this, it should be Kam Chancellor, because he's been fined for it a bunch of times.”
