  1. Obama spoke out against police brutality. His rhetoric was professional and never over the top.
  2. That amounts to a threat of rape. Unfortunately such rhetoric has become commonplace thanks to Donald Trump.
  3. I guess we have to root for Montgomery County now. I hope Maryland gets it, but I am predicting either Toronto or Nashville.
  4. I think we need to give the new Commissioner time before we cast judgement on his ability to lead the force.
  5. What about Charles Moose? He really showed good leadership during the sniper incidents.
  6. Oh this disgusts me. Acts of cruelty to animals are not mere indications of a minor personality flaw in the abuser; they are symptomatic of a deep mental disturbance. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals don’t stop there—many of them move on to their fellow humans. “Murderers … very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids,” says Robert K. Ressler, who developed profiles of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
  7. I support the police. I have family members who wear the badge.
  8. He inherited a robust economy thanks to President Obama.
  9. I wonder why they would award someone who is racist against them.
  10. Ben Cardin gets it. He fights for progressive reforms. He is a visible leader in the Senate. We are lucky to have him.
  11. So you eliminate welfare and food stamps and people starve. Minimum wage is not enough to live off of. Do you want people dying of starvation? This is America. We are better than that.
  12. Why can’t a diner absorb it? Servers can pick the slack from absent workers. More tables mean more tips. The restaurant doesn’t really lose per se.
  13. It’s common sense legislation. Everyone gets sick. Did Hogan get paid during his cancer treatment? I rest my case.
  14. I would like to see an honest debate between her and Senator Cardin. He is amazing and I doubt I would vote against him, but I am always open to new ideas.
  15. There will be a Democratic tsunami in November and I predict Hogan will be among the many going down.
  16. I cannot believe this didn’t pass with unanimous support. These legislators have constituents to answer to.
  17. It’s a good idea, but why did he wait until an election year to address this issue? Where has he been the past three years?
  18. I am not trolling. I never thought of it from a net loss perspective. I wish people were more tolerant but that’s not always the case.
  19. What are you talking about? Race is a factor here, but it’s on the NFL’s side of the street.
  20. Because he is being blackballed. He is better than most, and everyone knows it.
  21. It’s not that there aren’t plenty of reasons to believe that Garoppolo is great, however it’s definitely not his production on the field that separates him — because Colin Kaepernick was just as good, if not a little better, in his last five full games for the 49ers.
  22. Those guys spend their careers becoming experts in the craft they cover. There is almost universal agreement that Kaepernick should be on a NFL team.
  23. Sir, this is a disgusting display but you are a poor spokesperson for civil rights.
  24. I am a Catholic Democrat and I am pro-life. But that’s just my personal beliefs. It is not mine nor another’s business what women do with their bodies.
  25. She is way more competent and worthy than Trump will ever be. Trump lacks the experience, honesty and integrity that we expect out of that office.
