    The cop clearly wasn’t very bright.

    The student was smart enough to get into UNC and yet...too stupid to realize taking something that didn’t belong to her was a crime.

    That’s something the dumb cop probably learned in kindergarten, but he’s not woke like her.

    She was given every chance to stop. She was warned that there was a cop.

    Has she NEVER heard of the First Amendment? This is a massive failure of our educational system. Her rights stop where my rights start.

    She is shocked the dumb cop isn’t arresting the people not breaking the law instead of her.

    Shocked.

    She thinks he’s the thought police there to enforce politically correct dogma and send those evil conservative Nazis to re-education camps. Why would he side with them against a SJW like her?

    She has no idea she’s the one acting like a Nazi. Oblivious. Utter lack of self-awareness.

    When this represents America’s best and brightest, when this is our future...our teachers have failed. You know she got great grades, killed the SAT and ACT, probably volunteered everywhere, but she doesn’t know the first damn thing about being an American citizen. She’s clueless but absolutely convinced she knows better than that poor dumb cop.

    I weep for our future.

            Maybe it's not such a bad idea for liberals. Maybe there is hope for the future.

              And yet nothing happened.

              Sorry @Gatoravatara

              Man’s Facebook post about traffic stop goes viral

              TUCSON, Ariz. — A man’s Facebook post about a recent traffic stop is going viral.

              [​IMG]

              Steven Hildreth Jr. says he was pulled over by the Tucson Police Department for a broken headlight. When the officer asked if he had any weapons, he told him he is a concealed carry permit holder and had a gun on his right hip.

              Because his wallet was in his back-right pocket, the officer needed to disarm him to check his ID. Hildreth wrote about his experience with the officer and posted it to his Facebook page.

              Hildreth’s Facebook post has been shared more than 135,000 times.

              So, I’m driving to my office to turn in my weekly paperwork. A headlight is out. I see a Tucson Police Department squad vehicle turn around and follow me. I’m already preparing for the stop.

              The lights go on and I pull over. The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons.

              “Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.”

              The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle. I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.

              Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date. He goes back to run my license. I know he’s got me on at least two infractions. I’m thinking of how to pay them.

              Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared. “Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.”

              I smile. “Thank you, sir.”

              I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities.

              Maybe…just maybe…that notion is bunk.

              Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.

              Police officers are people, too. By far and large, most are good people and they’re not out to get you.

              I’d like to thank those two officers and TPD in general for another professional contact.

              We talk so much about the bad apples who shouldn’t be wearing a badge. I’d like to spread the word about an example of men who earned their badges and exemplify what that badge stands for.

                Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believes Donald Trump would have been indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe if he weren't president, though stopped short of calling for his impeachment.

                Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, argued during a Q&A session in New York that Mueller’s report “could not be clearer” in making the case Trump tried to obstruct the Russia investigation -- even though Mueller did not come to an explicit conclusion on that question.

                ARE YOU FVKKKING SERIOUS?

                ARE YOU FVKKING SERIOUS?


                The woman who wiped and smashed harddrives and phones under subpoena actually has the unmitigated nerve to so suggest that someone else would have got indicted?

                The woman who was passing BEYOND TOP SECRET emails on a fvkking simpleton half ass email server in some dudes closet with ZERO security, has the nerve to say someone else would get indicted for doing something? While the govt still puts servicemembers in prison for years for sending one email or pic with something even considered "confidential" (less than secret or top secret) info?

                The woman whose campaing literally colluded with foreign agents including Ukrainians and Russian to build a fake dossier in a desperate attempt to steal back the election, says someone should have gotten indicted.

                The woman who coincidentally received 145 milltion dollars from a Russian controlled company within weeks of her transferring our Uranium to them, says someone else should have gotten indicted?

                She and Bill will reign for ever as the King and Queen of Corruption. No one will ever touch 145 million, and that is just one transaction, and just the amount the Russians DIDNT bother hiding.

                Amazing.

                          Wealth is not zero sum.

                          People create new wealth every day.

                          It’s not like Steve Jobs got rich taking money out of my pocket and your pocket and made us poor.

                          We gladly traded money in return for his phone. We did it voluntarily because we believed the phone was worth more to us than the money.

                          That my old friend, is the essence of capitalism. It is the voluntary transaction.

                          A farmer creates wealth with every ear of corn he grows. You voluntarily trade your money for his popcorn or tortilla chips or cornbread or grits. He didn’t steal your money. You gave it to him freely because you wanted to.

                          Henry Ford didn’t force people to build Model Ts at gunpoint. He paid them. They lined up for the job. And then people lined up to buy finished Model Ts from him. Voluntarily. Because they wanted the car more than they wanted the money. They were happy with the transaction.

                          Wealth is not a fixed pie where a bigger slice for me means a smaller slice for you. Capitalism makes the pie bigger.

                          Capitalism has raised more people out of poverty than anything else in the entire history of civilization.

                            I thought you were a supporter of the First Amendment?

                            Freedom of Speech means the government can’t stop you from saying what you want to say but it also means that it can’t compel you say what you don’t want to say.

                            Compelled speech is as bad as suppressed speech.

                            The baker isn’t refusing to sell her a cake. The baker will happily create a custom birthday cake if she asks. The baker will sell her any cake in the case.

                            So what’s the problem???

                            He won’t create a custom cake that celebrates her transition from male to female.

                            He also won’t create a Halloween cake with devils on it. He won’t create a cake with a stripper twirling around a pole on it. He won’t create a cake that disparages the US or veterans. HE ALSO REFUSES TO CREATE A CAKE THAT DISPARAGES BLACKS, HISPANICS, HOMOSEXUALS, OR THAT GLORIFIES NAZIS OR THE KLAN, OR THAT PRESENTS ANY OTHER MESSAGE THE BAKER IS MORALLY OPPOSED TO.

                            But of course you knew all that because the media can be counted on to give you the full story, amirite?

                            Soooooo.

                            Is it your position that the Government should be able to force the baker to create art celebrating a message he is fundamentally and morally opposed to?

                            If so, please stop claiming you’re a champion of free speech because you aren’t.

                            By the way, this whole case is a set-up. The attorney set it up to go to court. She didn’t casually stroll into this cute little bakery and get thrown out on her ear. This was after the gay wedding cake incident. The attorney called and specifically said the cake was to celebrate her transition knowing she would be declined just to file a complaint against the baker. She was trying to set up a stronger case against the baker than the wedding cake case.

                            Be honest Windy. This isn’t a religious fundamentalist trying to shove his religious beliefs down her throat. This isn’t a religious fundamentalist intruding into the privacy of what this this person chooses to do in her own bedroom. To the contrary, it is the transsexual attorney using the power of government to force her beliefs and her morality down the baker’s throat. BAKE THE CAKE CITIZEN! BAKE IT OR ELSE!

                            I believe in freedom and liberty. I don’t want government shoving anybody’s morality down my throat.

                            Liberals often label conservatives as autocratic, dictatorial. However, it is conservatives (and especially libertarians) who want government to have LESS power over our lives.

                            Alex.

                              If you don't think liberal policies are responsible for this $h!t you're out of your freakin' mind or just incapable of critical thought. Did you listen to what the cops were saying? Who the hell do you think decriminalized EVERYTHING in that city? It's run by avowed socialists and crunchy dumbass hippies. I was there last August. It's a $h!thole. Even the "nice" areas are rampant with homelessness and garbage.

                              You know New York was like this 25 years ago until Guiliani cleaned it up. How? He made small crimes important. The broken window theory. Look it up. Liberals are incapable of fixing a problem like this. They just are. They can't get past the feels of the lowest common denominator to take care of the feels of the overwhelming majority of lawful productive people. They become paralyzed by the idea that somehow they might (gasp!) have to tell someone NO! You can't just do whatever the f**k you want.

                              They will destroy this country yet. We're seeing this now. No borders! Infanticide should be celebrated! Legalize all drugs! Cops bad! Cop killers misunderstood! Illegals go to the head of the line! People who don't work should get a free basic income! ICE are nazis! It goes on and one and the stupid country-killing $h!t they come up with gets more and more absurd every day. But you just keep on cryin' about the big mean orange man.

                                    What in the hell does this even mean? Name one conservative who's lost an election that's trying to start a civil war. I swear to god, I don't know how you remember to breath sometimes.

                                      Elijah Cummings did very well for himself in this society, rising to a position of substantial wealth and prominence. And he was well known for speaking out on behalf of the less fortunate, like most of the people who lived in his Congressional district.

                                      Powerful Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings has died

                                      Unfortunately, the folks in his district he spoke up for never received any benefits from his oratory or his representation of them in Congress. To the contrary, when the economy turned a corner after 8 years of idling under Barack Obama, Cummings was there to denounce the one person who actually did something to improve the situation of the less fortunate, Donald Trump.

                                        So, she stumbled into the fact that sex is a choice, and other than for procreation, it is purely a recreational choice, and that there is no need for free contraceptives nor do health plans need to cover it?

                                        Did I get that right?
