Carson: Cops Could Be Trained to Shoot For The Legs

Dr. Ben Carson

Dr. Ben Carson, author of “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future” argued that while Officer Darren Wilson did nothing wrong in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, police should be better trained in non-lethal force such as shooting aggressors in the legs on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

“First of all, I don’t think that the police officer did anything wrong. Nevertheless, there are probably additional techniques and knowledge that he could have been given. So all along, we probably need to beef up the instructions for police officers in general so that they don’t place themselves in such dangerous situations” he stated.

Carson continued, “he [Wilson] had every right to protect his life. But I do think that there are probably other techniques that could have been used.”

He specified “for instance, in a lot of places, police officers aren’t even allowed to go into the more dangerous areas by themselves. They’re always paired. Or you know, people use tasers, people learn how to shoot people in the legs to stop them from charging, things of that nature. And I seriously doubt that he’d been given that information.” SOURCE

Dr. Ben Carson may be a strong Conservative in the eyes of some, he is quite likely a fine doctor and a great American, but when it comes to Law Enforcement, guns, their use and the Second Amendment, Dr. Ben Carson doesn’t know his hand from his foot and he just cost himself any support he may have gotten from me.

“Why couldn’t they just shoot him in the leg” is the cry of the dumber than dirt anti-gun Libbers, not solid Conservatives and knowledgeable gun people and 2A supporters, at least not in MY opinion.

Carson may indeed be a marvelous person but where guns are concerned, he is ignorant.

Semi-automatic weapons ok in countryside, but not cities

Appearing on Glenn Beck’s radio show this past week, Carson took a vastly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, claiming you shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons in large cities. Continue reading

Party leaders clash over Obama as election nears

Party leaders clash over Obama as election nears
Vote Republican 4 Animated

WASHINGTON (AP) — He is not on the ballot, but President Barack Obama was the focus in a final-weekend clash between candidates and party leaders, as an increasingly confident Republican Party eyes control of Congress two days before Election Day.

GOP officials on Sunday seized on Obama’s low approval ratings, which have overshadowed state contests in which roughly 60 percent of eligible voters are expected to stay home. SOURCE

Even though Barack Hussein Obama is NOT on the ballot, the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 4th is more about stopping him, yanking as much power away from him as possible, and the only way that can happen is if the GOP retains the House and retakes the Senate.

If that doesn’t happen there won’t be much of an America left come 2016. It’s as simple as that!

Still, the Democratic Party leaders are predicting victory despite disappointing polls.

We have all heard the saying, ‘Polls don’t mean a thing’ and that may be true, but I don’t base my opinions on polls, I base them on what I see and read, and lately I am seeing and hearing a lot of Democrats complain about Obama, his way of governing and the outcome of that governance.

Sure, there’s always going to be a strain of Democratic insanity that supports people like Obama and his cohorts, it’s inevitable, that is why it’s called insanity and why the Dems, in their current configuration, can never be allowed to take control of this nation again.

Speaking of insanity…

“I’m very proud of this president,” head of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said. “I think we’re going to win the Senate.”

That, I believe, proves the argument about insanity and the Dems suffering it.

There is one matter that may affect the elections, the weather.

I am an *early voter*, I believe that voting is my duty but I don’t have to wait until the last minute to do it. Also, with the time period that early voting is open I don’t have to wait until a day when the weather is too hot, too cold or too rainy. I vote, it’s what I do, but given the time frame of early voting I vote at MY convenience, and here’s why.

While rain could deter voter turnout on Election Day in part of the Southern Plains and the Northwest, dry weather is in store in the East and the balance of the West.

Gubernatorial elections will be held on Nov. 4, 2014, in 36 states, along with elections for many other state and local government offices.

Rain is forecast to fall on areas from Texas to the upper Great Lakes on Election Day. Voters in part of this area may have to wait in line in the rain. Continue reading

Obama Appointee Manipulates Votes from the Bench

Texas voter ID law blocked by federal judge

U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales RamosAUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge on Thursday likened Texas’ tough voter ID rules to a poll tax meant to suppress minority voters and blocked Texas from enforcing it just weeks ahead of next month’s election, knocking down a law that the U.S. Justice Department condemned in court as deliberately discriminatory.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi is a defeat for Republican-backed photo ID measures that have swept the U.S. in recent years and have mostly been upheld in court. And it wasn’t the only one. The U.S. Supreme Court also blocked Wisconsin from implementing a law requiring voters to present photo IDs.

Gonzales Ramos, an appointee of President Barack Obama, never signaled during a two-week trial in September that she intended to rule on the Texas law — rebuked as the toughest of its kind in the U.S. — before Election Day. But the timing could spare an estimated 13.6 million registered Texas voters from needing one of seven kinds of photos identification to cast a ballot.

The Justice Department says more than 600,000 of those voters, mostly blacks and Hispanics, currently lack any eligible ID to vote. SOURCE

Voter ID 1
This BS has gone WAY past the point of ridiculous, this is nothing more than an attempt by the Democrats and an Obama appointed Liberal, Hispanic, female judge to legislate from the bench and force the will of the Democratic Party on the entire state of Texas.

In a post on Facebook Texas AG Greg Abbott said, “Voter fraud is real and must be stopped. I’m appealing the ruling by an Obama appointee blocking our voter ID law.”

I have to agree with Abbott, there is voter fraud and there has been in for years, this voter I.D. law is not designed to disenfranchise ANYONE, it is NOT some move designed to keep a person of ANY color from voting, all it does is help the elections workers verify that the person voting is entitled to vote and that they are who they say they are.

I have MY Texas I.D. and I have no issue with using it at the polls. Here in Rowlett we have voted at the same location for 10 years now and the elections people generally know most of us when they see us, but since the voter I.D. law has been in place most of the people that I see at the polls have their voter registration card and I.D. in hand as they walk in, most folks KNOW it’s a requirement and from my observation, most have NO issue with presenting their I.D.

No one that I know considers having a pictured I.D. to be an issue to begin with, especially a RACIAL issue as the DOJ, Eric Holder and this Hispanic judge are trying to make it out to be and I talk to a lot of my fellow citizens here in Rowlett and across Texas. We like the idea of having straight and honest elections and voter I.D. cards go a long ways in insuring that we do have honest elections. Continue reading

September 11, 2014 and I still remember

American Freedom EagleWe are STILL under attack my friends, sadly, the attacks are coming from the White House, the Muslim in Chief, as he supports HIS people, Islamic people everywhere…

We are going to survive, 9-11-01 taught us that, we can survive, we will get past Obama and his hatred of all things American. My hope is that the American people have learned their lesson when it comes to leadership, or lack thereof.

This once great Lady has stumbled but She hasn’t fallen, and by the grace of God Almighty and the courage of the American people, we will keep Her standing for the future of OUR children and all of our future generations…
