Over the weekend, DC Metro Police defied orders by standing down and not engaging veterans on the National Mall. Should these defiant officers be fired or punished in some other way?
It is our duty to disobey unjust laws/orders
Should receive honors, promotions, raises!
Wow actually good cops that did not beat taze or shoot first or follow orders blindly. Well you can knock me over with a feather.
No, those veterans have a right to visit the memorial and they showed us what the people can do if they choose too. The police showed us their support for that action. I support them both.
Were they given the same orders during the immigration rally? Bet not.
Obanas disdain for Americans is blatant. If you have not seen the movie 2016, please watch.
Don't be ridiculous. Nobody gets to be President with a "disdain for America".
He's ticked me off too, but let's not go into the tinfoil hat crowd.
Did I say America, no I did not.
Some ppl believe he can do no wrong
The same goes for "Americans ". We are all lucky that no president has ever reciprocated in-kind with the amount of hate and bile that is directed at them.
NO president, Republican or Democrat.
Mad, you think it's ok to treat immigrants better than Ww2 veterans?
Watch the movie with an open mind and then we can debate.
What I think is, there are things that are not dissected on a piece by piece level, which is a luxury that you and I have.
What I think is, that setting prerequisites for a debate isn't a debate, it's proselytization.
TheLate ... you tried!
I wonder why MrO refuses to negotiate, adding preconditions to any discussion ... could it be that he is attempting to proselytize?
"Not dissected on a piece by piece level". Meaning Obama conveniently knew of, and approved one rally, while totally unaware of the other one?
There is no way that MrO hasn't known about both the illegal alien invasion/illegal assembly and the daily WWII vet visits to their memorial.
The baracades are reassembled daily at the WWII Memorial. Why?
3 years of requesting input, and being extorted in the 12th hour isn't exactly conducive to building trust.
Right ... MrO would know all about building ... like when he completely shut the Republicans out of the Unaffordable Healthcare discussions, right?
How about MrO and Mr Reid refusing to negotiate a budget for five years? That's how Dems negotiate!
You are joking, right? Reid has refused to bring any budget up for vote. Is this what your sources feed you?
"Senate Democratic leaders on Friday said they do not intend to bring a fiscal 2013 budget up for a floor vote.
"We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year". Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters."
How about Mitch McConnell stating that the Republican mission was to undermine Obama's administration.
How about John Boehner admitting that they had a plan 10 months ago to shut down the government using disingenuous budget negotiations.
Harry Reid won't even bring obamas budget up for a vote.
MadCow is now going to tell us that no Democrat has ever said that their goal was to make a Republican a one term president ... what a flimsy argument.
Let's talk about locked doors during the Unaffordable Care discussions!
I just think it was an asinine statement to make, to execute YEARS of obstructionism, and then protest that the other side is not being forthcoming. And then to have Boehner admit to negotiating in bad faith….
MadCow ... to obstruct there must be negotiation. Yet another pathetic attempt to reappropriate the blame wholly due to Democrats for our current debacle. MrO had the House and Senate and ignored the Republicans.
Now MrO and Democrats must face it
Let's not make a bad situation worse.
The people that gave the orders, should be.
