    Candace Owens is a beautiful adult human, anyone who's "feelings are hurt" by Candace needs to stick him thumb back in him mouth and go back to coloring, trying to stay in the lines...... we need to come to a place where "offending" the children is not the societal driver in play.

    If one of my sons brought Candace home she would get such a hug....

    Quite a remarkable lady and one who is putting her own life at great risk everytime she speaks the truth. She is also welcome to hang out with my family if she could ever find the time. Also thought some of you who might not know her would enjoy hearing what she has to say.

    I wish that were true

    You might notice that the op isn't exactly jumping up and down in support of your posts..... he may even pull the entire thread.

    This has been the normal reaction to Candace and her "wacko beliefs"

    Pull it if need be I really don't care. As you know it happens all the time Al when someone doesn't want to hear what other's might think. I would actually like to hear what they might have to say is not that the American way?

    I think the first sentence in this article is spot-on, also >>> https://www.ajc.com/news/local/polic...MK973qp1n5D2K/.

    As for racism (see the second sentence in the above article), I don't know. Do we make choices based on a person's color, or based on the person's actions? If the former, that's what I'd call racism; if the latter, that's not what I'd call racism. One sad thing about this is that the gov't and many businesses appear to encourage race-based decisions frequently, under the guise of "affirmative action." It seems to me that until race is removed from decision making, that racism will always be with us.

    BTW, Ms. Owens talks faster than I can listen.

Our family is conservative and vote.

    We either have good law abiding folks or we have bad non law abiding folks and their race has nothing to do with it at all. It is which of those two ways they choose to live their lives that actually does.

    It looks like we have too many of the latter; this breaks my heart >>>>>> https://www.11alive.com/video/news/c...a-1fde21c7ca8c

    Regrettably, the "authorities" (parents, teachers, politicians, etc.) have dropped the ball.

    So here is that first sentence.....



    A local police chief wrote a nearly 1,000-word Facebook post that accused church leaders of contributing to discord between law enforcement and the public.



    I guess you and I have a difference of opinion re what the term "spot on" means.

    I think we agree here

    BTW Hunter..... just sso's you understand that I DO HEAR YOU, and that I simply don't see it the same way as you, let me explain.

    Here are some more sentences from the article;

    Byers addressed his post to pastors, youth pastors, worship leaders and directors of ministries. He didn’t explain what statements they had made or when. His criticism was based on what officers told him, he said, and not what he had heard or seen firsthand.“The views expressed on Byers’ Facebook page do not reflect the city of Johns Creek,”

    Here's where we part ways.....

    Byers "addresses all the miscreants but He didn’t explain what statements they had made or when."

    Decoded, this simply means he lashed out with yet another baseless "gotta' blame somebody else" post.

    You will notice that the city of Johns Creek does not agree...

    The "throwing of thee blame" and the "wringing of thee hands" and all the other "acknowledgements that there's a problem" are simply whingeing...... and whingeing, whining, crying and wringing my hands are not my way. I DO STUFF. In Alcoholic's Anonymous you learn that "recognition of the problem is the first step toward a cure"......

    But it IS NOT the cure.

    What saddens me is that 99% of the people in our once-great country are just now admitting that we have a problem!

    And we're YEARS and gobs of "pain" away from even beginning to implement a cure

    Meanwhile I'm gratified and heartened to see the crashing and burning actually finally happening....we've been kicking this ball down the road for decades.......

    What I'm saying is, it ain't even really their fault.... my generation failed utterly to pass on to them what our parents gave us.

    My parent's generation VOTED for everything, and went to council meetings and township meetings and volunteered on the School Board

    Half the so-called "conservative" or worse yet "libertarian" people of the age of 40/50/60yrs old now don't even vote for POTUS, don't know what a primary is.

    Lazy-Ass Losers, us..... we taught our kids to whine because WE whine...... "somebody's gotta' DO something!"

    "somebody ELSE....."
