    A customer in the parking lot of the Kroger recorded the incident on their cellphone. In the video, you can see the unnamed manager approach the shoplifting suspect. The suspect appears to have a knife in his hand. The manager shoves him into a parked car and gets the knife out the suspect’s hand before eventually slamming him down to the ground.

    Does nobody study history anymore? The world is coming frighteningly close to renacting 1939 pre-WWII. Here are the roles: Obama is Nevil Chaberlain: a rank amateur in control of a world power who is completely out of his depth. Then there is the powerful and admired man, the one rebuilding a failed empire after it lost a brutal conflict (substitute the Cold War for WWI). A monster who is nonetheless well respected. One who wants to recapture lost territory (substitute the Ukrain for Poland). The "peace maker" with legitimate grievances. A true professional to boot. As the saying goes, we've...

    "Our" Representatives and Senators are cowards. No way they will impeach Obama after he starts his proxy war on Thursday in complete contravention of the War Powers Act. But we can ask these spineless tools to do something they are accustomed to doing: Simply don't stand up. As in when Obama delivers his next State of the Union address, don't stand up. Sit. Don't applaud. Just sit. That MAY not be too much to ask. So start asking. The humiliation would be epic. And a narcissistic sociopath such as Obama simply would not be able to handle it.

The genesis of this was that he is just sick and tired of Obama always blaming Bush for Obama's own failings. It also contrasts Obama's whinning inability to accept responsibility for anything with Reagan's "get it done" approach. Think it might be worth sticking on some tshirts. Thoughts?

    We've (mostly) all read the speech where a Czech politicans says the problem isn't Obama, the problem is an American electorate who would vote Obama into office. While I agree, the problem is worse than that. A true conservative opposition could handle those problems. The real problem is a Republican base who would nominate Romney in the belief that he was significantly different from Obama. That means even the "right" is part of the idiocracy. Pray. That is all we can do. (But it may be enough.)

    Obama and other Democrats are constantly harping on taxing the "rich" or the "wealthy," but their proposals are all about taxing income. Well, income is not wealth, and the wealthy often have little income. The reality is that all income taxes do is punish the productive and job creators. Income taxes also are very useful for the wealthy and powerful to keep their club exclusive by making it nearly impossible for most people to become wealthy.In other words, income taxes are class warfare by the mega-wealthy against the middle and upper middle class. They want to keep their club exclusive.As...

The leftists joined, the constructionist and conservatives dissented. Obama WILL pick a hard left nominee. A nightmare. The Republicans and conservatives don't have the votes to block. So they should ask ONE question again and again: How does the Constitution prohibit the death penalty for raping a child?
