The socialist countries in Europe are doing just fine economically. Many of those countries offer "free" (of course taxpayers foot the bill for the most part) and Germany has free college education. Every nice vacation destination I've ever gone to was filled with Europeans with enough money to spend 2 weeks at Disneyworld with plenty of vacation to spare with at least 6 weeks of vacation.

Somebody needs to explain to me why more vacation time, universal healthcare and free education are such dirty concepts. Why are we beating on our chest about 2 weeks vacation, expensive healthcare (although pretty good) if you even have it and having to spend 6 figures on a college education?


I'm not sure which part of your post is the saddest. The fact that you think insurance and college education are free under socialism. That you think the previous two things plus extra vacation are all there is to socialism. Or, that you think Europeans are the only people rich enough to go on vacation overseas. And that they are only able to do so because of socialism.

Hell my dad had 6 weeks vacation plus an eight day break every month when he worked at GE. I never remember him having to fly to Europe for work.

Nice to see we have Socialists on the Couch.

Do you understand what a top progressive tax rate of 90% does to an economy???

Wow. What has gone wrong with our education system?


The leading Republican candidate thinks the 14th Amendment is unconstitutional, and you folks are lapping it up.

Are you going to actually listen to Bernie Sanders, or are you going to let Faux News and the hate bloggers interpret what he says for you?


This whole thread highlights everything wrong with our current political landscape. The republicans and Democrats are both ruining this country. Voting for either party is just a confirmation that you are perfectly content to let incompetence lead you blindly down the road to nowhere.

Yes I listened to Bernie Sanders, once. That was enough for me.

The last 8 years have been enough socialism for me. I'll give him credit for at least admitting that he's a socialist but I'll pass, thanks.

So, why isn't this one in South Carolina "controversial"? I'm mean, an unarmed kid shot in the back would surely get the media frothing at the mouth. The last time an unarmed person was shot in the back in South Carolina there was quite an uproar. This one is being treated so much differently. Almost like it never happened.


Well, it IS controversial and SHOULD be a bigger story. It just shows that cops make mistakes with all races and some of them lie about it later. We've got to get past this anytime a white police officer is involved with a black suspect and something goes wrong, it's automatically racism. But your article gives some possible explanations as to the difference in the media coverage. The big difference is there was no big public reaction to it, like you saw in other incidents. The media was there to cover that probably even more so than the incident itself. I'm mot defending the media. Just telling you how it works.

I think that most if not all of the recent incidents don't show any evidence that they had anything to do with race. If anything they were incidents of excessive force, or negligence or not following proper protocol.


100% spot on. The media coverage and the outage is absent because the juicy racial element is missing. They are however, all over the football player in Texas that was shot over the weekend.

It takes two sides to create a debate over an issue. In the case that you speak of there is nobody defending the officer. In the more debated instances there are typically conservatives defending the behavior of the police.



Are you kidding me? You actually think that the other police shootings made the news because a much of conservatives were rioting in defense of the officer? I'm really starting to believe that Cayce has highjacked your computer.

This isn't blowing up the news because the victim is white. It will continue to not make news for that reason as well. This happened around the same time as Sandra Bland but, all we'll talk about is the black woman who KILLED HERSELF.

You've already made it clear that you are not very bright, no need to try and one up yourself. Fighting for independence and being an idiot because you did not get a ticket for breaking the law are two entirely different things.


Riiiiiiight...

Could you please go more in depth with your statement because, frankly, it makes no sense.



I will gladly go more in depth.

You claim to have been pulled over for speeding. You further claim that the office was going to let you off without the speeding ticket since it would have cost you points on your license. Instead of being happy that you didn't get the speeding ticket you decided to act like a dick so the officer gave you a ticket. Therefor, you are not very bright.

Being happy that you didn't get a speeding ticket is not even remotely close to fighting for independence from the King of England. So that comparison, which YOU made further proves you are not very bright. The fact that all of this needs additional explanation to you leaves no doubt that my assessment is spot on.

It's bullshit that the type or severity of ticket hinges on your behavior AFTER the offense has taken place.



This is a joke, right? Please tell me you weren't serious when you typed this.


Middle section is admittedly a bit of hyperbole...but top and bottom sections are accurate in my opinion.



In what world do you live where your actions/attitude or someone else's actions/attitude have no bearing on how an interaction with others will develop? If someone acts like a total dickhead to you I doubt you do them any favors either.

All Mac had to do was say thanks and move on. Hell, he didn't even have to mean it. No one expected him to jump out of the car and bow at the officer's feet or break in to songs of celebration. It's really not that difficult to grasp.

First of all, let it be known, I am not a #blacklivesmatter protester, I'm firmly on the side of the police in both the Brown and Gray cases. However, if you're on the side of the police and/or officer in THIS situation, you are, without question, part of the problem in this country.

For every cop that's out there risking their life every shift, patrolling the most dangerous neighborhoods in our cities, there's also one that spends his entire career hiding behind the bushes of a speed trap, trying to catch local citizens going 7mph over in 35mph zone. THIS cop is clearly the latter, a cop whose only time firing a weapon is off-duty at a shooting range.

Unfortunately, the only thing police "protect and serve" these days are their town/city's bank account. This cop was clearly doing just that. Hence why he had someone else pulled over MINUTES before he pulled this woman over (full video). Then, when this weasel of a human being felt he wasn't getting the respect he deserved, he COMPLETELY overreacted, imposing his "authority" over this woman.

I had a similar situation happen to me, there's a a half-mile stretch of road near me, where the speed limit goes from 45 to 30, then back to 45. As soon as I saw the 30mph sign, I took my foot off the gas, and coasted through said zone. A cop pulled me over for going 37mph.

After writing the ticket, he walked back to my car, and in a very cocky way says...

"Speeding tickets are pretty expensive, so I'll save you the trouble of going through your insurance, and cut you a break. I'm going to give you a ticket for having a license plate not fully visible." (I have a WVU alumni license plate cover, obviously the plate is still visible.)

He then went silent, waiting for a, "Thank you for cutting me a break, sir."

I replied, "Well if you were really giving me a break, you wouldn't be giving me a ticket at all."

His tone quickly changed to aggressive, "excuse me, sir?"

I then asked the question," do you go to restaurants, golf courses, etc., and flash your badge to play for free?"

He quickly struck back, "Do you want the speeding ticket."

My response, "I'm just saying, isn't it pretty ironic that you expect people to cut you a break everywhere you go, but you don't cut other people break's?"

Needless to say, I got the speeding ticket.

My point is stop being donks, as human being's, living on this planet, there's no reason NOT to be completely disgusted by this police work.

And please stop telling people cops can do and say anything they want, as long as they say, "That's an order!", and you must obey.

We might need to change your name from "Hookem" to "Baahem" because that post isnt steer status at all, that's sheep status.

Hope everyone had a good summer, good to be back...MTFU!



So a cop pulls you over for speeding and then cuts you some slack on the ticket and your response is to be a smart mouthed dick? The appropriate response would have been, "thank you, have a nice day".

That is seriously, one of the dumbest posts I have ever seen on here. It ranks right behind everything Cayce ever posted.


Comply or die is not a society I want to live however, citizens need to learn not to escalate as much as the police need to learn how to de-escalate.


, Mac did the right thing. It's not like he's crying because he got the speeding ticket either. Thanking the officer would be the same as having your nuts cut off.


Mac gets pulled over for speeding. Cops does not write him a ticket for speeding. Mac opens big mouth gets ticket for speeding. Clearly he made the right decision, both of you are geniuses.

So, you post that link here expected us to believe that the sun can affect global temperatures. Nice try, but you can shove your hokey science crap. We all know man is the only influence on global temperatures....

Don't get me wrong, I understand your frustration and you do make a valid point but you have to at least give the gun ownership proponents the fact that our worst locations have the tightest laws. This SHOULD NOT be if this is EVER to work.


No, I don't. Until you can't just drive a few miles away to get what you want, it says nothing about gun control. It's the same thing here in Baltimore and DC. You can drive a couple miles in any direction and get whatever you want.

Our worst locations always have and always will be in large cities like Chicago. Those cities do what they can to minimize it, but gun control can't be that effective. It assumes nobody goes outside of or nobody comes into that jurisdiction. That couldn't be more false.



Do you think all of those shootings over the 4th of July weekend were committed by little white boys with confederate flags who, drove a few miles out of the city to Ted's House of Guns and loaded up?

Almost all of these shootings are gang related. Additional gun legislation would be as effective on them as it would be on ISIS. So, maybe we need to look at the gang problem in Chiraq, not the gun problem.
