Be polite and respectful when stopped by the police. Do not, under any circumstances, get into an argument with the police. Keep your hands in plain sight. Make sure the police can see your hands at all times. Stay calm and remain in control. Watch your words, body language and emotions. “Your goal is to get home safely.”

    Jeez.

    Just heard this on the radio, 7 victims (including children) in GA with 5 confirmed dead.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/deadly-shooting-in-georgia-with-children-among-victims/

    Wasn’t it in GA that a man shot and killed 5 family members last week? (Please correct me if I’ve forgotten the state where that shooting occurred — I heard a single report on the radio and saw very little mention online about that shooting.)

    If you Google “Georgia shooting” you are helpfully offered “Georgia shooting today” as one of the pre-fill options — I guess mass shootings are a daily occurrence there.

    ((( swbluega ))) ((( dudette99 ))) and all TODville Georgians.

      Guns are now the negotiating tool to settle family disputes – children are the hostages – and a high % of US politicians are too scared of the NRA and their life of luxury to do anything about it.

        Mass shootings are becoming the daily norm in this country, yet there is zero pushback by the MSM on the NRA when literally thousands of US lives are forfeited every year because of this country’s infantile obsession with a provision that was important 250 years ago.

        MSM loves to stir up trouble and debate over Dem foreign policy (yet give the GOP a free pass) and fleeting domestic issues such as gas prices, the stock market, etc., but don’t have the time of day to challenge GOP positions on things that have an enduring impact on everyday Americans such as education, health insurance, immigration, infrastructure, upticks in job openings, etc. — again, a free pass to the GOP.

        Sorry to hear that your cousin is in that town — but sadly/shockingly, there’s probably no town of any size in the lower 48 which hasn’t been affected by fatal multiple shootings in the last 20 years or so.

    The man lied about this incident which was stupid and wrong, but he’s no different than the rest of his colleagues. Apparently, it just matters which lie we’re supposed to freak about. The media walked hand in hand with GWB to lie the public into the Iraq war, some of the reporting on Katrina was horrendous, the reporting on the murder of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Chuck Todd saying it’s not the media’s job to correct or question lies, I could go on and on.

    They all need to spare us the fainting couch hypocrisy.

      The problem the media has with the lies Brian Williams told and the lies chuck todd and Joe Scarborough tell is this: Brian lied in an effort to self-aggrandize, which had no benefit for the 1%ers/GOP/corporations. He also badly damaged his credibility, so his use as a propagandist has been compromised. chuck todd, Scarborough and Lara Logan all lie to advance the GOP cause by attempting to inflict damage on the PBO administration.

    ABC News needs to stop exploiting this woman’s grief to push their bullshit agenda. And she in turn needs to stop allowing herself to be manipulated by a nefarious agenda-driven corporate media outlet which doesn’t give a RAT’s ARSE about her murdered son & his family.

      February 7, 2015 at 7:44 pm

      Unfortunately, those grieving, especially, death of a Child, Mother’s death and Sudden Deaths …..have a tendency to cause many to seek for someone or something to blame. It is part of the loss, unfortunately.

        February 7, 2015 at 9:27 pm

        This is more than just a grieving relative. There is a political agenda – how come we don’t see the parents of the thousands kids being killed daily with guns on ABC news blaming the NRA?

        • 57 arapaho415
          February 7, 2015 at 9:51 pm

          You’re absolutely right, HF2.

          The media cherrypick the shock and grief that they exploit and blast over broadcast, internet and print to promote their agenda, which apparently is to see the US go down in flames and have anarchy reign among the 99%.

          That would ensure MSM jobs for awhile.

          The horrific and gruesome nature of the slaughter of civilians by Daesh is stomach-turning, but literally thousands of American families must cope with the untimely deaths by guns in this country every year — yet the NRA seems to be the third-rail for the MSM.

          February 8, 2015 at 11:16 am

          Yes, it’s also political. It depends on who the person is and on how the press covers these stories.

          I remember Sheehan(sp) during the GW Bush Iraq invasion. The Media was in support of the GW Bush and the Iraq war…..so CindyS. was ignored…….until after Katrina in Aug of 2005.

          I am adding additional reasons why this family are currently being manipulated.

  12. February 7, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    THIS really bothers me because as we all know, John Kerry has been working day and night to press through the garbage and break through to the most important issues facing America along with their resolution. GRRRR.

        I just read this so-called study. Ready for H for sure. Utter nonsense.

        How about opening relations with Cuba?
        Talking with iran?

        Lady Walmart did absolutely nothing as SOS that I can recall. Traveled, smiled and waved. Very Queen of England.

        • February 7, 2015 at 7:58 pm

          John Kerry took a very different and more direct path to engaging with the world community. He’s not running for office again and I think he felt unfettered by that politically. I believe he’s done a very conscientious job of meeting the demands of a lot of difficult situation and may be poised to make some breakthroughs. To cast doubt on his service just reeks of an HRC operation. JMO.

      • February 7, 2015 at 7:55 pm

        Yeah, good question. It’s really shameful, considering.

    • February 7, 2015 at 9:06 pm

      Let’s see some of those scholars get off their butts and try doing John Kerry’s job. He is not the worst, he’s better then the last SOS we had, and better then alot of ones before him.

        February 7, 2015 at 10:03 pm

        I almost think the exact reverse of this study. In my eyes he has been one of the best SOS I have witnessed. He tirelessly pursues making positive changes through negotiations and improving relations.

      Not gonna click on the article, but this is utter BS.

      These scholars need to STFU about ongoing developments in a fragile world.

      Wonder where they placed Alexander “I’m in charge here” Haig on their list?

      And as much as I respect Colin Powell (I was one of those in 90s who thought he’d make a good President), he really dropped the ball during the GWB administration — Condi, who is up to her neck in the lies of the GWB Adm.

    So, the situation with Nutenyahoo is spiraling downward by the moment.
    It is coming down to Sheldon Adelson versus The President of The USA.

    Unless you are a longtime student of israeli politics and factions you have no hope of following the vying claims.
    One organization says this and another one says that. False equivalencies abound. A group representing almost no American Jews speaks as if they speak for all of us. The whole mess is maddening.

    I think it is fair to say that the only sane solution is an outright cancellation or a face-saving postponement.

    If this speech is made and the democratic party splinters then Sheldon Adelson will finally be able to kid himself that he has triumphed over Our President.

      Interesting …how the so-called progressive caucus …and CBC…have said nothing….Pelosi has said she planned to attend…which i find interesting…i think that if she had decided to boycott the speech…more DEMs would have followed her…REP John Lewis…is NOT attending…he did need to know who was attending and who wasn’t…

      Warren and Sanders….have said nothing…..

      this speech will tell a lot about the Dems…or i should say….will confirm a lot…

    I want to share something that showed up in my Newsfeed earlier. The writer is President of Carson-Newman College, a Southern Baptist Liberal Arts school an hour east of Knoxville. As you will read, he & his wife attended the Prayer Breakfast as guests of Cong. John Duncan. Bless him for writing this & sharing it on Facebook.

    Dear Friends,
    In the interest of fairness to the President of the United States, I would like to offer an eye-witness, ear-witness, soul-witness to the President’s words and spirit shared at the National Prayer Breakfast. Kay and I were in attendance as guests of our U.S. Congressman, and esteemed friend, the Honorable John J. Duncan, R-TN.
    Kay and I are dismayed by the vitriolic attacks on the President and his address by an unnamed news organization. Hearing the reports we wondered if we were present for the same Prayer Breakfast. By disingeniously lifting two sentences out of context from approximately 130 sentences in the President’s speech, the news agency and other political enemies of the President managed to misconstrue the confessional, bridge-building nature of Mr. Obama’s remarks. (The entire speech is available for you online by googling, “President Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast Speech.”)
    We shared a breakfast table with Dr. and Mrs. Julio R. Huaranga, Congressman from Peru, and other new friends from the Ukraine, Israel, and the United States. No one at our table was offended by the President’s remarks. In fact, he rightly strongly condemned ISIL for its savage brutality. His tone was conciliatory as he asked us not to condemn Islam for the evil of some, reminding us, after all, of past evil done in the name of Christianity. That was it.
    Upon completion of his remarks, the President was given a standing ovation. The Prayer Breakfast was beautiful, powerful, profoundly spiritual.
    Then came the reports, . . . the ironic opposite.

    • February 7, 2015 at 9:18 pm

      It was a wonderful speech, he spoke the truth and as I told some of the people making negative comments about the speech, I said that you people will fine some fault with what the President said if he had just got up there and said Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savoir, thank you. Because if the truth is told, your problem with this President is he is a black man and you can’t stand that he is President of these United States.

      • February 7, 2015 at 9:26 pm

        Absolutely, Bella. There’s a number of comments on the thread ……… All thanking this man for writing this and neatly all positive about PO’s speech. There’s no comments that are ugly or negative.

    Per Google Translates:

    “A group of citizens of the Russian Federation appealed to the Russians, calling for unity in the struggle for their rights and an end to the war with Ukraine.

    “Russia has become a totalitarian monster, – the statement says. – Power fabricates one criminal case after another. We must work together to find ways to get out of this situation.””

    Now, this is courageous ….
