  • "As an American, I value the right to bear arms to protect myself from an authoritarian government. If any government (foreign or domestic) thinks they can discriminate against us, airstrike our neighborhoods, bulldoze our houses, torture and kill our children -- we don't want that war, but we at least have a guerilla-fighting chance. Palestine lost that war in the 1948 "War of Independence". Lost again during the "6 day war" of 1967. Just because you lose a war doesn't mean you agree with the government that beat you. If I was born into Palestine, I expect my family would continue fighting nearly 100 years later, just like I'd expect them to do if a government tried to exterminate us from our land here in America."

  • "Who needs a country? At this point they would be happy not to have their houses bulldozed. Civilian homes get destroyed, not Hamas sites, as a matter of stated Israeli policy. The recent unrest was caused by Ultra Orthodox Jews evicting Palestinians from their own homes. Most here are ready to fight over a mask policy. Try having your lives, I mean everything in it, controlled for 40 years by an occupying government. You may feel differently. Israel is our ally. They should reflect more of our values if they want to have our continued support."

  • "https://www.timesofisrael.com/deadly-duel-photos-capture-battle-between-iron-dome-and-hamas-rockets/ If you look at the night time picture of Hamas rockets being fired at civilians in Israel and the iron dome defensive rockets the story will become clear as to who the aggressor is...."

  • "Exactly. The so-called "Palestinians" are just Arab squatters. If the rest of the Arab world is so concerned about them,why don't they just remove them from Israel and assimilate them into their countries? The whole deal was started , once again, by the Arab squatters with weapons furnished by Iran. They started firing missiles into Israel, into areas of only civilian populations and now they're crying about their casualties when Israel seeks to defend themselves. Israel goes way above and beyond what any reasonable person would expect as far as not striking civilians. The squatters purposely position their military weapons among the civilians in an attempt to sway public opinion. Apparently they are quite successful at manipulation of the media and a big surprise here, they've got the Antifa- BLM Marxists on their side now. The only reason that those people are there is to be a thorn in the side of Israel."

  • "What do you know about the "separation of church and state?" Why did you even mention that in this context? The "separation of church and state" has to do with the US Govt not recognizing a national religion (e.g. the Church of England), and the prohibition of making citizens attend it, or pay for it. It has no application in this discussion."

  • "Iran now backs the Palestinians with arms. They weren't dumb enough to do so when Trump was the POTUS because they were terrified of him. Now that the US has a weak POTUS, Iran feels emboldened to do as it wishes. If Palestine/Iran were to cease hostilities, there would be peace. If Israel were to cease hostilities, Israel would no longer exist. That's not acceptable. It's time to cleanse Gaza/Golan Heights/West Bank. Time to drive the majority of their inhabitants back into Jordan once and for all."

  • "De-escalation would be great and hopefully defuse thousands of years of conflict between the Arabs and the Jews. Above all we need to avoid taking sides and keep our guard up so that the Arabs don't find something other than the Twin Towers to destroy. Another good reason for separation of church and state, not just in our doctrine but in leadership. We may need to assure we have a good mix and address that question for the purpose of national security?"

  • "While the situation in the ME is very complex and is the result of 3K years of ethnic hatred, there are some simple facts. There is no Palestine. It's a name not a country. If the inhabitants of the region, Palestinians, want a country of their own, they need to make peace with the country that will grant it to them, Israel. Hamas is a terrorist organization funded by Iran. As long as they are in control there will not be peace and ergo there will not be a Palestine."

  • "Warzones is a huge stretch, a house down there costs 400k+, economics is a factor, the biggest one in crime, I appreciate you thanking us EMS personnel, as most of us are unarmed and only trained to save lives if the scene is safe, which is thanked to police, keeping the scene safe."

  • "I am no lawyer but IF my memory serves me well, a quiet title claim (often known as a squatters right claim) has no bearing when filed against a government agency. Private vs party or government vs private party is a yes but a private party vs government is a no. Example: "We have always tossed our litter out the window of our car" or "we have always dumped our waste water into the creek", etc, that will go nowhere. That said, I do support the recreational vehicles on the entirety of the dunes, the last existing option to provide something for everyone on the California coast. The wind blown sands have always been, just dig a hole miles inland and guess where that sand came from. The new housing issues in the path of sand dust was a failure to the required EIR's, a different liability, not the pre-dated recreational use of the dunes. I see this quiet title action as a legal boondoggle for personal gain. "

  • "If you actually bothered to look, you would find that Newsom in fact said quite a words about this tragedy. https://www.gov.ca.gov/2021/05/11/governor-newsom-statement-on-death-of-san-luis-obispo-police-department-detective-5-11-21/ I'm no fan of Newsom, but I am a fan of the truth. However, I'm sure the shameless trolls will downvote this comment simply because it states an inconvenient truth."

  • "Time was on their side. Why would they break a citizen's door down unless they had completely educated themselves about the person they were pursuing? They could have simply interviewed his mother to find out he was upset about his life. Obviously they did not perform due diligence on Mr Giron and it cost them. It's great the community has united to help the family, but we really do need to look at what the hell local LE is doing, because they continue to have serious issues—dead prisoners, dead dogs, guns left in the toilet, officers gunned down for no apparent reason, etc."

  • "When I was a teen I would go buy 5 boxes of 500 22 rounds at walmart for me and my buddies to use on a weekend. You can fit 2-3 of those boxes on a dinner plate. Don't make uninformed assumptions. People that shoot buy lots of ammo so that they can shoot. Also, look into Newton's 2nd law. Ammo "exploding" isn't the same as in a gun."

  • "Drug abuse is maybe the biggest problem in the USA, but is mostly ignored by politicians. Yet these same politicians want to control everything trying to save us from a corona virus. We need to start electing politicians who care about the important issues facing ordinary citizens....like drug abuse!"
