    My wife and I are pit bull advocates, and we thought letting him get fed to the dogs that he abused would be too good for him.

    This is just one more reason for me to boycott the NFL.

    More to the point of the toon, without getting dragged into petty political arguing for this toon, I am appalled that the NFL isn’t banning him for life and prosecutors pressing charges. They have video footage of him punching his fiance. There’s no allegation, that’s criminal assault. I was listening to Free Beer & Hotwings Show this morning and they were saying the prosecutor has apparently had this footage since the whole incident came out, and he allowed a plea deal to avoid a felony. WTF?! Why isn’t there more outrage about this?

    Unfortunately, mfhorn 4 is more accurate than I’d like to admit. sigh

    Then you haven’t been listening.

    RCP Average has him at 41.8% approval, with the most recent poll showing 39% approval.

    If you look at the direction of the bullet pattern on Brown’s body, it looks as the officer was firing repeatedly in a short order to try to get him to stop, with the recoil bringing the pistol up with each shot. He had only two to three life-threatening shots, all in the head. The rest, on a 300-pound guy, while would hurt and bleed, wouldn’t fell him in a single hit. And when you’re adrenaline is pumping, you pull that trigger until the attacker falls down.

    In the Corps, they have what’s called a failure drill… two to the chest, and one in the head. You ensure the enemy is dead before you put the weapon back on safe. Pretty certain that’s what happened here.

    Now, your argument does have merit if all the bullet wounds were center mass or in the head. But this clearly was “shoot until stopped coming.” If you get beaten in the head and face by a 300-pound attacker, you don’t take chances when he comes back for round two.

    “Gunned down in the street in cold blood?”

    Coroner’s report shows he was shot in the front. Officer had an orbital blowout fracture after the encounter with Brown. Getting beaten in the face and shooting the attacker who was coming back again is not “in cold blood.”

    You really need to keep an eye on your sources.

    Mass genocide of the Kurds probably had nothing to do with it.

    Shanbo, first… breathe. Your brain is not getting enough oxygen if the best argument you can come up with is “idiot.”
    Let’s dismantle your comments one at a time, shall we?

    - I never refuted that it was a democratic president who suggested the CRA. But it was his own party that had more resistance to it. It was a comment to disprove an argument above that republicans (at the time) were against the CRA.
    - As to the Bush mistakes? I wonder how long it’s going to take the next president to clean up Obama’s blunders. But more importantly, are they going to incessantly whine about it like Obama did? The “But Bush” meme has been worn out. Did you hear Reagan complaining? Or Clinton? No. Obama diminished his position when he and his ilk complained about Bush’s actions, or actions that were blamed on Bush but put into motion over a decade earlier.
    - The ISIS uncovered a chemical weapons plant in Iraq that still had chemical weapons in it. Or did you miss that? Of course you did, because you only watch liberal-slanted media and that doesn’t fit their narrative.
    - I wish my story were false. I wish my sister-in-law didn’t just move in last week with her idiot boyfriend with no future. I wish I didn’t have to see her flushing her future down the toilet with that guy. He gave her an STD, no less, and she still loves him. As to 900 a month? I never said he can live off of that, but I can tell you it’s $900 he doesn’t rate. There are many people who are fully capable of working that are abusing the SSDI system because they don’t want to. If that $900 were coming out of your pocket, when you know he’s perfectly capable of working, would you be happy about it? Why should I be happy about someone stealing resources from a system that is borderline bankrupt, and from people who truly need it?
    - You also must have missed the part where I said I don’t support corporate welfare. But that doesn’t fit your blinders-based view of the world.

    I said right, not power.
