“kinda silly (foolish) when everyone has cameras and or twitter at their fingertips, not very smart of her managers or her if she's can't embrace media exposure, candidates for high office should embrace transparence and should want their important remarks on the record, but maybe she's having second thoughts...”

“That's her privilege to deny the press once in a while. Maybe because she's
still speculating about whether to run or not.”

“She isn't a candidate for anything. She is a private citizen just like you.
Until she makes an announcement that she is running, she has just as much right to a private life as you do.”

“She's not a candidate last I heard. So as far as I'm concerned she is a private citizen who deserves the right to bar the press coverage when ever she wants to.”
“There is usually a white face on tragic national gun murders to evoke sympathy, but the real tragedy is that a majority of these gun murders are a result of the Drug War executed in ghettos filled with the poor and minorities who still don't get the attention of the media or political decision makers.”
Instead of cherry picking through the hundreds of thousands of legal cases and thousands of rape cases to make some cheap political comments, try looking at the data to determine how often alleged rapists are found guilty — not just in the military, but in the general public, in the court rooms of judges appointed by both liberal, democrat, conservative and republican officials. Rape cases are not simplistic. Alllege rapists are not automatically guilty as charged. Sometimes, sometimes, the alleged rapists are found by objective judges and juries to be the real victims of false claims.
These cases are traumatic for the true victims and their families and supportive friends. Justice is not served by media freny meant to boos readership and page views when ratings and readership plummet.
A factual analysis of rape case outcomes will not give you such a neat and tidy story.
Someday, we'll a have a sophisticated media intelligent and thoughtful enough to give an acurate picture of the world we live in.
How much do we spend for the unregulated and untaxed drug trade?
Pointless policing for petty crime, legal cases that only benefit lawyers, incarceration (@$35-$50k/yr/inmate) that fails to rehabilitate drug users when it doesn't initiate more inmates to drug use and drug crime, the loss of potential workers and their taxable income, more services for children who grow up w/o both parents.”
“We're also exceptionally talented at building the planet's biggest most humungous war death intimidation machine to keep other countries off our backs which also keeps the gun industry healthy and strong — all at the expense of providing services for our citizens, veterans, seniors, children and families, and a livable minimum wage.”
“Well, Number 1, we as a community must stop tolerating criminal behavior in our communities and in our families. Families are the first people who should be keeping after their kin, then the law steps in. Regardless of when the stats are in other communities, #BlackMenAndBoys need to stop choosing to commit crimes and start hitting the books to enrich their minds, enhance their future opportunities for success and for entertainment. Great books are a real way to help them escape the ghetto and transcend poverty, mean streets, and ignorant behavior. But they need to stay in school to learn to read. Too many choose not to take advantage of free public education and libraries and then they jump on the band wagon of blaming society for not helping them.”

“makdi: This one Black man that does not blame society. These boys learn something about self when their minds are filled with a concept of equality. But the Black female degrades him. Not society. His mother who he loves dearly tells him that he can never reach the level of her Jesus who is her master and if he doesn't give himself to this idea put in the Colored woman's head in Slavery that he will never be anything positive. A man at the bank told me, "Mister I understand what you are saying but you better not let a Black woman hear you." I am going to die sooner than later. I am okay with it. When I do die I want to say that I told the truth. There is no White man named Jesus coming back from the dead. Dead people don't get up. I killed in Nam. Nobody ever got up from being dead. If this Black male can't trust his mother, sister, aunts, grand mothers where will he find himself? makdi, I am only saying the home is not a place for Jesus. Not for a Black male. He needs a family too. Culture of his own. Something belongs to him personally just like the Japaness, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian and other who sees their God or Deity the same as them. Buddha never went to Japan or China. But if you see Buddha he is Japanese. He was born in India. hahaha”

“Just as many white people use the same drugs as arrests prove. However, the desparity in convictions is disturbing. Save your bigotry and address the facts.”

“many people cheat because they are looking for a better sexual opportunity outside the stress and rigors of maintaining family and social relationships, not because they want to go out and be seen in public and enjoy the glow of their sex toy's good looks. amazing sex isn't about being pretty and having well coiffed salon treated locks (indeed someone too obsessed with how their hair looks will be horrible in bed), fat girls and boys (with big glutes and hamstrings) are a lot of fun in the sack — and often more eager to please [ ;-) ], they don't look as charming on the runway or in photos you'd want to frame in your bedroom, mantle or on facebook, but sharing their finer assest on your alternate sexting ne-twerk is just fine”

“People cheat because they are dishonest, selfish, egotists that would sell out anyone, even their own family, for a worthless few minutes of instant gratification.
“as libertarians suggest, private businesses should do as they please, if they insult or choose not to sell to a certain group that is their free choice, their gamble and possibly their downfall. we can't stop stupid, but we can ignore it and let it die off”

“Don and Bill are in the same chorus and ack like dey be talkin to peeple who be lisnin ... dem peeple be out making more babeez than they can afford or have time to raise by more [women] than dey can remember the proper christian names for, watchin da game on da teevee, gettin krunk, hangin wid dey boys, and/or shooting each other. ... Essentially joyfully gleefully embodying the fantasy of Jim Crow (laughing himself silly in his grave) wanting to annihilate African Americans and their families; many black men destroy themselves and their families more efficiently and effectively than any klan lynch rally, plantation owner or George Zimmerman ever could.”

“Actually, "the white man's" justice system and the lack of *effective* social policies and programs doesn't help. The GI program is an excellent example of a successful gov't program that assisted with mostly White America's middle class growth where as Black America was still fighting for their basic civil rights and did not nearly benefit as great. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_Americans_and_the_G.I._Bill”

“Tell it to the thousands of drug-addicted and incarcerated white men who wasted their unearned privilege.”
“Hey #CNN how abt graphic videos of aftermaths of their American sponsored gun violence to shame the POTUS and CONGRESS' inertia when it comes to curbing the greater number of deaths committed by homegrown US degenerates with gun fetishes instead of just being a mouthpiece for politicians and corporate profits? Not buying the US govt war propaganda you're peddling like prostitutes bending over backwards to please their pimps and tricks.”
“Hard to imagine that NO ONE had their cameras out when MO was speaking, when most people do at every event she attends. This would have broken records for trending on youtube. Ellen Sturtz must have been apoplectic during the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Reagan Administrations; glad she survived w/o slitting her wrists.”
“Thank goodness for the people with CCW licenses who chose not to go on some wild vigilante rampage and decided to have faith in our government officials and follow the direction of our well regulated police force in dealing with this faux international terrorism episode.

A May-Issue jurisdiction is one that requires a permit to carry a concealed handgun, and where the granting of such permits is partially at the discretion of local authorities (frequently the sheriff's department or police), with a few states consolidating this discretionary power under state-level law enforcement. The law typically states that a granting authority "may issue" a permit if various criteria are met, or that the permit applicant must have "good cause" (or similar) to carry a concealed weapon. In most such situations, self-defense in and of itself oftentimes does not satisfy the "good cause" requirement.
The following are "may-issue" states: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island.”
“Yes, the Potomac River that separates DC from VA is in DC's jurisdiction. Then there's the Anacostia; you might not be able to water ski, but you could probably walk on top of it given all the solid waste pollution -- from Maryland -- creeping through it just below the surface.
“When are the media prostitutes going to do stories on the uncounted thousands of poor people who foolishly spend inordinate amounts from their whole paychecks for the ridiculous chance to win? That's the story that should be written and repeated to educate people -- not the crack dream.”
“Male exploitation of women and girls gets covered up in America while the media focusses on Sandusky and Catholic priests on the fringe. Maybe we do need a woman President to take some real leadership and address this issue. I guess major league sports have exceptional pr teams just like the NRA to help protect their reputation with distracting spectacle like Beyonce and Sandy Hook Chorus children. Meanwhile the selling of sex, from Beyonce's sex garb to cheerleaders acting like dumb bimbos, just warm up some of these degenerates for the sex act they pursue around the event. The event feautured Sandy Hook children, which was admirable, but how many gun regulation messages where featured in ads. Any donations for Hurricane storm relief while these performance enhanced jocks and owners reap millions? It's a big sham and disgrace.”
“The GOP will win back the women with an effective anti-abortion strategy:
Simply make paternity tests automatic and giving the mother (either foreign and abroad or US citizen) the right to have the "father's" wages and financial accounts automatically garnished or other assets liquidated, and used for child support thru college. This will also encourage all heterosexual dudes (like millionaire pro athletes) to use condoms (or go under a knife) to prevent pregnancies and coincidently reduce spread of STDs. It takes two. Come on GOP, mount a winning campaign for a change.”

“The woman doesn't want to have the kid. Getting her money from the father, won't change that.
You're presupposing that women have abortions because the father of the child won't support the child. The few women I know who have considered or endured pregnancy termination did so due to deeply-held and considered personal issues.”
