Steve Kalhorn, general counsel with Buchanan Energy, which owns the Washington Street location as well as 59 other stores in the Chicago-area market, said the clerk might have been set up because surveillance video shows the camera phones were recording as the family members entered the store and the clerk was drawn into the arguments.
“The two women who went in were clearly confrontational,” Kalhorn said. “Unfortunately he lost his cool.”

2015 Census estimates suggest that of the overall U.S. population of roughly 321 million,
blacks comprise 13.3%, or about 42.7 million.

That 13.3% of our population are victims in 52% of all murders.
That 13.3% of our population commit 53% of all murders.

Of the roughly 6,000 homicides last year in which police had information
about the race of both victim and killer (a 44% sample).
About 15.8% of white victims were killed by blacks,
About 89.3% of black victims were killed by other blacks.

Of the 13,455 cases from last year in which the FBI listed a murder victim's racial information,
7,039 victims (52.3%) were black, if 89.3% were killed by blacks, then that's 6285.
5,854 victims (43.5%) were white, if 15.8% were killed by blacks, then that's another 925.

Total murders committed by 42.7 million blacks, 7210, or 19.02 per 100,000.
Total murders committed by 278.3 million non-blacks 6245, or 2.17 per 100,000.

Answer, of the 88 embassies that are in Israel on 2 are not in Tel Aviv.

What did trump actually accomplish by moving our embassy to Jerusalem, other than pandering to netanyahoo, and taking still another opportunity brag and boast about what is meaningless in world diplomacy.

What a real fraudulent POS

President Trump fulfilled a promise that he made in 2016, a promise made by Bill Clinton in 1992,
a promise made by congress in 1995, a promise made by George W. Bush in 2000.

The tax on "Cadillac" healthcare plans was supposed to be a major source of funding for the ACA.

"The House voted almost unanimously to repeal the tax, not only a key cost-containment provision in Barack Obama’s signature health law but also one of the main ways it was supposed to pay for itself."

Repeal is expected to balloon deficits by nearly $200 billion over the next decade.

My State lost another fine Sheriffs Deputy today in a blaze of gunfire. He killed his murderer, but that is small comfort for his family and community. Like so many other in law enforcement, the Deputy was a combat Veteran. What are the odds, living through multiple firefights, only to die at the hands of a fellow natural born American? Surprisingly, the odds are better than even.

Whether it was climbing out of trenches into the teeth of a Maxim machine gun, crawling through hedgerows, sloshing through rice paddies trying to avoid bobbytraps, or walking down streets full of IED's, suicide bombers or worse, death stalks the war fighters every step. What do you suppose the damage to a youngsters psychological health could be, never knowing where, when or by whom death comes, day in and day out, days upon days upon days?

Here, in our own country, kids never know when a nutjob will invade their school and shoot/stab them to death. Cops never know when a welfare check ( such as in today's tragedy ) or a traffic stop will turn into a fight to the death. Factory and office workers never know when some disgruntled fellow employee will show up with a shotgun and take as many lives as they can. Tell me, what's the difference between the daily slaughter here in America, and the slaughters that have/are occurring in foreign battlefields? The answer is; no difference at all.

We seem to be at war with half the world ( or more ), but the real tragedy is......................we're at war with ourselves. Americans are killing Americans at a faster rate than in any war in our history, including the Civil war. This epic violence has little to do with firearms, since we'd obviously beat each other to death with a rock if that's all we could find. Worse by far than the opioid epidemic.....................is the violence epidemic. We don't seem too troubled about admitting that we have a National drug problem, while pretending not to see the gigantic elephant that invades our lives much more profoundly, that elephant being - America's love/hate relationship with violence.

Time for a reality check! Your allegation:

"Americans are killing Americans at a faster rate than in any war in our history, including the Civil war."

The Reality IS: More than 600,000 "Americans killed each other" in the Civil War, over 150,000 per year.
The Reality IS: The population of the U.S. in 1861 was less than 32 million people.
The Reality IS: The "Americans killing each other" rate in the Civil War was about 468 per 100,000.
The Reality IS: 17,284 Americans "killed each other" in 2017, 5.3 per 100,000.

Worse by far than the opioid epidemic.....................is the violence epidemic.

The Reality IS: Rates of murder and violent crime remain at historic low points,
almost 50 percent below their early-1990s peaks.
The Reality IS: A preliminary analysis of 2017 crime rates in the nation's 30 largest cities
projects that the overall crime rate and the violent crime rate will decline
to the 2nd-lowest levels since 1990.
https://www.brennancenter.org/issues/crime-rates-america

The Reality IS: 70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017 (21.7 per 100,000),
more than four times the number of "Americans killing each other", for the same year.
An increase of 9.6% from 2016 (19.8 per 100,000).

The Reality IS: You've got your "facts" bas aackwards.

You'll never understand what that was about, as Pelosi said it didn't include the Mueller report reasons on obstruction, I'm thinking that might be soon... it's all about reasons and obstruction of justice

Pay attention to the vote on criminal obstruction by Barr and Ross, it's much more relevant because it's about the current level of obstructing congress


If it weren't for double standards, you would have no standards at all.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was found to have broken the rules of the U.S. House of Representatives by calling President Donald Trump “racist” on the floor Tuesday, but Democrats voted to keep her remarks in the record and restore her speaking privileges.

I don't know where that goes, if they ever find it?

It's a shame that President Trump didn't appoint Barr as AG in the first place.

He should have appointed Sessions as his official cigar lighter.

Nothing will change the fact that far too many democrats are running in 2020. The foolish among them will attack the front runner. It has already happened and Unity is extremely important in this election. Last election was a prime example of the protest voter refusing to vote for the nominee and instead voted for candidates who were out of the running. It was not all the electoral college. Let us not forget that the Republican party is unified like a religion and will take their communion at the polling stations in record numbers this election. Complacency and lack luster turnout by democrats and throwing their vote away on an off breed candidate will give you trump 2020.
