    Interesting. Well I try not to ramble, however, as for “CCW's only shoot when they can verify their target”. I think you may know this very much depends on the person. All persons are not trained equally and all training is not standardized.

    As for immigration, etc. Bias is bias. You will remain bias. Your limited information sources are bias. Any information the government provides is bias. Any information provided by the scientific community is bias. However, information provided certain government officials are true even though you hate all the false misinformed government officials. It doesn’t make sense. However, you are provided rights, as well as others, by the Constitution of these United States regarding your opinion(s).
    Muslims have been in North America prior to yours and mine ancestors. I, personally, was not there, nor were you. However, there are people that spent their lives in researching these facts. You are welcome to believe it or not.
    Segregation, subjugation and isolation of people have never work throughout history. That is a fact. Thus the backlash in trying to initiate it now.
    “It’s assimilation that will bring people together; embracing what they have in common, separate cultures and language is what divides.” I would beg to differ; it’s the separate cultures, languages and personalities that bring us together. Humans are unique. Not the same.
    Besides, nothing personal, I would hate to be assimilated as part of your world. I don’t mind visiting it though.

    For quietwolf.....
    More liberal logic in action. Keep focusing on guns. Guns are much worse than people according to the left.

    Jesse Jackson's Newest Staffer.
    You can't make up stuff better than this!

    Mel Reynolds
    Jesse Jackson has added former Chicago Congressman Mel Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll...
    Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute clemency forgiveness spree.
    Reynolds received a commutation of his six-and-a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud, and lies to the Federal Election Commission.
    He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.

    This is a first in American politics:
    An ex-congressman who had sex with a subordinate....
    Then won clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate...
    Then was hired by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate!
    His new job? Ready for this??

    What's in poor taste? A guy that got caught in several crimes including election fraud, involving people campaigning right now?
    Point is political back-scratching regardless of the crime.
    Trump is the only one that can upset the status quo. Hillary will be a continuation of the status quo.
    We only have ourselves to blame for the outcome.

    I'm starting to wonder if quietwolf and wesada might be the same person or very close.

    The difference is Trump has succeeded and Hillary is a proven liar, proven to be very crooked, and all experts say she will be continue Obama's failed policies.


    Maybe looking at the candidates and issues instead of trying to diagnose behavior of those of us trying to do our best and finding fault is in order.

    When you speak of the mob and Presidents, don't forget Kennedy and Johnson. Trump isn't accused of breaking laws,  letting people die, conspiracy with national security. A career liar and dirty politician versus a successful businessman with leadership skills, who isn't beholden to the political machine. And.....so many are taking the dirt bag.

    LOL, I read the article from SF Patch and couldn't believe what Black-Lives- Matter said "The organization withdrew its role as grand marshal for the parade because of "unsafe conditions created for our communities by law enforcement," the group said in a statement. Makes me wonder what the heck they were planning on doing if they are afraid of too many police that will be there to EVEN protect them! Crazy world we live in these days 2Grands.

    I read the article and understood the content of what "Black Lives Matter" is saying. There issue does not appear to be with the Gay Pride event but may be with the SFPD. SFPD have been charge with racial bias, which ultimately led to the replacement of their Chief.
    “The initial findings of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Transparency, Accountability, and Fairness in Law Enforcement note that there are a number of serious issues in the department related to everything from discipline, hiring and oversight to lack of transparency and biased policing of minority communities.”
    Maybe that was prudent to not create a volatile environment based on enhanced police involvement.

    SOCIAL SECURITY—THE TIME I WAS ELEVEN AND REAGAN REACHED INTO MY POCKETS TO "FIX" THE ECONOMY


    In April of 1981, Ronald Reagan successfully argued for a reduction in my Social Security Benefits. I was only 11 at the time. My mom had died when I was 6, and the benefits were there because of the need for kids who lose a parent to be able to have the financial safety net necessary. It was around my 11th birthday that the Reagan Administration successfully argued that Congress should cut the survivor benefits that I had been receiving since I was 6 years old.

    You can’t predict when parents are going to die, so restricting the benefit only to those dependents of otherwise eligible beneficiaries would have been needlessly cruel. Reagan didn’t care about all that. He wanted to somehow convince us that the poor should get tax increases, the rich should get tax cuts, and those lazy takers and Lucky Duckies with their fancy SS money shouldn’t get so damn much.

    Complain and post all you want. Anything Trump has done or may have done is easily eclipsed by Hillary. Her dirty deals, lying, and so on are well documented.
    Go ahead, show your intelligence and support her.

    Also, quietwolf, if you do some checking you'll find Republicans give more to charity than Democrats. What puppet for the party.

    Every Presidential election has an overtone of "lesser of two evils". This isn't new or news, except for the fact Hillary has a well documented career of being evil, shady, and deceptive.
    I have to hand to the left's spin doctors: they've done well convincing some people Hillary is the solution.
    People thought Hitler was good solution too. I don't think Hillary is capable of genocide but she's capable of selling us out, deception, lies, letting Americans die. That's not what Trump is about. Trump wants everyone to have the chance to be better, have a strong country, and opportunity. Hillary and left want government to fill that role (dependency) instead self reliance. If you aren't self reliant you end up a slave to the government's whim.

    Exactly. Trump wants. That is all I have been heraring, is what Trumps wants. Trump wants to be rich. Period. If he can get richer through the help of the American people than so be it. Trump wants him name on any and everything. Trump highway, Trump monument. Yes, other presidents have their name on things. However it’s usually after they are an ex-president or dead.
    This whole concept of great businessmen is ridiculous. The bankruptcy of his businesses is an issue. A Trump business bankrupt and he washes his hand. Not his fault. Trump did nothing wrong. I recalled reading that Donald Trump did not personally undergo bankruptcy. Well he led his companies into bankruptcy. The whole New York “Teflon Don” thing does not resonate.
    As your “bitterness” for Hillary lingers, my “bitterness” for Trump grows.
    As good of a day that you will have, so will I.

    Lil bow wow is back and trying to be relevant. Too funny.
    You might want to review the news as Hillary continues to slide and Trump continues to gain. The funny thing is Trump hasn't really done anything to cause Hillary's slide. The problem is people seeing that the Democrats are putting up a recognized and acknowledge liar, divisive and greasy by every measure. All incumbents better be aware as it seems America is getting their fill of politicians creating division, lying to us, and taking more money from us to fund things like illegals.
    It does no good to try and reason with people like quietwolf. Truth is not important; doing the right thing is not important; tearing down the opposing party to make one's own party look good is all that matters.
    Very entertaining to watch position justification.

    The "family values" Party's (GOP) voter base:

     

    A Trump Delegate Just Got Booted From The RNC For This RACIST Facebook Post

    Lori Gayne, an Illinois Republican, has had her credentials as a delegate to the Republican National Convention (RNC) stripped for an abhorrently racist Facebook post.


    While in Cleveland for the RNC, Gayne uploaded a photo of law enforcement officers standing on the roof of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to Facebook, captioned:


    “Our brave snipers just waiting for some N—- to try something. Love them”


    Gayne’s post displays impatient excitement, an expectation that black protestors will do something inflammatory, and a conviction that the police will respond with bullets. She seems to delight in the thought of black Americans being gunned down. Gayne’s disgusting caption represents a broader racist point of view. It assumes that black Americans are always ‘up to no good.’ She thinks of them as just ‘nigg*rs who are always trying things.’ She dehumanizes black Americans, strips their personalities, and only sees them as the people constantly ‘asking for it’; that is, constantly asking to get shot by the police, and deserving to be shot when they are.

     

    OCCUPY DEMOCRATS


     

    The horrible thing about this story is that Za' Fuerher German Orange Trump would agree with her. The Racist Trump is disconnected from the rest of the GOP, a Party he has hijacked, like the criminal he is.
