    Interesting response. What does this have to do with Biden saying if you cut police forces, crime will rise?

    Please elaborate. Do you mean to say that Obama was a compromise between the far left and far right? I would have to disagree due to my belief that he is far left. I'm curious if I'm misunderstanding your sentiment.

    Depends, what kind of car does she drive?


    That far-right-Libertarian notion that it's every man for himself is both ignorant and anti-American.

    He is insisiting a local need is a national responsibility.

    States and cities pay cops.

    Human benevolence is not the same as forced redistribution.

    Try pragmatic public policy.


    "forced".... you guys crack me up.


    By the way, that Cop in Flynt is paying for the repairs to the bridge that secretary uses to drive work.

    By the way, that secretary in Utah, she works in the travel industry.

    You know why people travel to Utah? NATIONAL PARKS.

    You know who maintains those parks. The cops in Flynt.

    You lack a basic understanding of how this country really works--the economic/public policy mechanisms.

    Flint, Michigan should raise taxes and hire the police back.

    Or, maybe they can't since they blew their last stimulus money on paying down their obscene public employee pension.
