    On August 26, 2015, a deranged black male who claimed he had been the victim of racism in the media industry, shot and killed two young, very talented and promising journalists in Roanoke, VA, at point blank range. Incidently, they were white. By legal definition, it was a hate crime. An act of violence motivated by racism or homophobia is a hate crime. But victimhood in this country evokes two completely polarized responses--by the political and media establishment, the criminal justice system, and the respective communities. I haven't heard the term "hate crime" mentioned once in all the many hours...

  • Vanity-1973 Book Predicted Downfall of West Through Immigration

    The Camp of the Saints (Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French apocalyptic novel by Jean Raspail. The novel depicts a hypothetical setting whereby Third World mass immigration to France and the West leads to the destruction of Western civilization. Almost forty years after publication the book returned to the bestseller list in 2011. Granted the countries of orgin might be a little different but it is quite prescient for something written over 40 years ago.

    I imagine Trump is kicking himself now for sliding into the crowded Republican race instead of the Democratic race. But who knew a few months ago that Hillary would implode leaving the Democratic race with NOBODY as a possible? Sure Trump is enjoying a double digit percentage lead in the Repub polls, but imagine his ratings (75%? 85%?) if he ran basically unopposed as a Democrat?

    I just have to wonder if Trump can be trusted on any number of fronts. Most importantly can he be trusted to pick one or two Supreme Court justices. Of course, Hillary can't be trusted whatsoever. Trump would be preferable to any Democrat. And I think Walker and Cruz and Carson are men with good intentions but that may be a moot point. I'm just worried that Trump might just go his own way and what anyone else thinks becomes inconsequential due to his dominant personality. The condition of this country is not good and I have no idea what...

    Just a thought: instead of deporting the illegal immigrants, let's have them sign up for gov't assistance, then send Mexico the bill. We'll put Trump in charge of collection. Am only half-joking. We don't have the manpower to find and relocate all the illegals. And since a number of candidates/politicians are calling for 'self-deportation' maybe an idea like this (sending Mexico the bill) could be made to work. It is my understanding that many, if not most, of the illegal immigrants are here because the Mexican gov't is so corrupt, and living conditions are so dangerous, that many illegal immigrants...

Some of the commenters admit to being pedophiles. Also, commenters debate the differences between sexual interest in a mature LOOKING teen versus the prepubescent children. The article has one good point. Maybe we should allow pedophiles to get help from shrinks without them being forced to report directly, as long as the pedophile doesn't admit to actually touching a child.

Adding a conservative mastero in Cruz to an Anti-Establishment (both parties) populist in Trump would be a winning team in my mind. Trump is a moderate all right but not a Republican Establishment kind-of moderate as in willing to back-stabbed conservatives because these moderates are really libs that just wouldn't make in the Democrat Party. So adding a conservative firebrand in Cruz who are probably Trump supporters second choice and vice versa would be a wining team that would rattle a weaken Hillary, an misguided socialist Bernie...

    The first debate is over but many questions still remain. It is unfortunate that candidates are only given a minute to make their point and 30 seconds for any potential rebuttal. Personally, my interest in the debates is to understand a candidate's policies and what he intends to do as president. So, ignoring the gotcha questions of Megyn Kelly to Donald Trump ( i.e. War on Women crap ), here are two follow up questions I have for Trump: 1) HEALTHCARE During the first GOP debate, moderator Bret Baier said to Donald Trump, "15 years ago, you called yourself a...

    Ted Cruz responses at the 1st GOP Debate I believe, more and more, that Ted Cruz should be our next President. Although I like a lot of what Trump is saying, and I like the way he is taking on the Media and the establishment (but Cruz does the same). My concern with Trump is his disposition. In essence, it's this: Even if Trump does some things I may believe in, I believe he would not hesitate to violate the constitution to do so. It does not matter what side of the political divide you are on...if you violate...

    There is one question that should be asked of every presidential candidate at a presidential debate. It is also a question no one dares ask: In 1794, as you are of course well aware, James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, was asked about the constitutionality of publicly funded charity. He responded: "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending on objects of benevolence the money of their constituents." Given Mr. Madison's remarks, it is beyond contention that the welfare state in its entirety is unconstitutional. If...

  • Petition to Ban Megyn Kelly from Hosting Future Debates

    ​Dears News Corps., Megyn Kelly apparently finds the state of our union amusing and "fun", whereas the viewers (our fellow citizens) deserve a much more serious moderator. In addition, she had a clear agenda to attack Donald Trump, by tenaciously clinging to his past rather than his vision for the future. She focused on Trump personally, rather than politically. Ultimately, she did not not live up to the "fair and balanced" slogan at Fox News and News Corporation. While her disdain for Mr. Trump was evident, this peititon is a call for truly fair and balanced coverage of ALL candidates....
