That was a nice slam from Rand.

I listened for an msnbc whimper afterward, but there was none. The interviewer moved on to Booker too quickly. I don't think he still knows what hit him.

Wow!

Rand grew a pair! We need to see more of this side of him!

That Was Blindsiding

"While we talk about restoring civil rights..." Talk about a weak transition.

Rand was on the program to talk about his partnership with Cory Booker on the War On Drugs. Just as Rand is getting into the medical impact, which as a doctor he is in a unique position to give, the host goes "yeah yeah yeah let me cut you off and switch to a different topic."

At the very least, it is a waste of Cory Booker's time to grill Rand Paul about the Civil Rights Act during a joint interview.

The Enemy

These race baiting liberals are the most destructive force in our society. I know I must try to love them, but I just can't.

I agree with 95%

The solitary confinement is needed. Cory doesn't understand how violent some of these kids are. I just read a news story of a 15 yr old, awaiting trial for murder, that damn near killed a woman in the detention center. Kids like that need to be kept away from others.

Rand spanked that ass tho... I love the way Booker takes Rands side. Rand is a lot like Reagan. He really is. He is always smooth talking and comfortable in front of the camera. He handed that guy his ass. Stayed on his message and didn't get too testy. Bravo Rand!

Facinating

MSNBC obsessively ruminates over racism buzz words. They tried to get the senators to say the word racist 4 times. at the 2:56 3:25 4:05 and covertly at 7:53 by implying Rand is racist for supposedly changing his position on civil rights act.

Rand Paul Owned That MSNBC Host.

And it was refreshing how he just repeated his main point each time. Smart. The remark about when MSNBC is a 24 hour truthful news network lol.

PROOF!

That MSNBC is nothing more than an American version of Soviet propaganda.

IT makes me happy when he

IT makes me happy when he stands up for TRUE civil rights like this.

However, he should have held his ground in regards to the property rights issue in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. which is what his father would have done.

You stand on principle on a propaganda channel, and the regime apologists will attack you.

I earnestly hope that he changes his mind on aid to Israel, but I am not putting all my liberty eggs in the Rand basket.

If I could switch out my own US Senators(Hagan and Burr.ugh!) for one or two Rand Pauls, I would do it in a heart beat.

That he doesn't stand his

That he doesn't stand his ground on this makes me sad.

The private accommodation section of civil rights act is unconstitutional and in fact the article did set a precedent for all sorts of further unconstitutional encroachment.

I hear you, but....

I hear you, but if Rand said anything other than "I've never was opposed to the civil rights act" then no matter what he said it would be in sound bites for months portraying him as a racist and would undo all the work he's done campaigning to different ethnic communities.

Over all I think he made it out of the nest of vipers ok.

Exactly! He said here that he

Exactly! He said here that he learned from his PR mistake...but that doesn't mean he changed his mind. One just has to pick there battles wisely. No use losing the war just to win some small nitpicky battle.

Laying the Gauntlet down!!!

Rand with the pile driver!!

Good for Rand, but he's gonna

Good for Rand, but he's gonna cause me to break my neck!

One day I'm turning to him and applauding his support of civil rights, the next I'm turning my back on his blind support of the abhorrent actions of the state of Israel.

huh?

that did not come off well in my opinion. and like any mass media would tell the truth. stand your ground, educate, like this:

huh? you got to be kidding me, NO, moving on…..

.

kind people rock

Exactly

Nothing about this was good. It made him look extremely ignorant and ingenuine in general for not explaining what he has said in the past.

Another Great Interview

Paul gets better and better by the day! Such a boss! He truly has Zero competition for the Republican Nomination. Rand Paul 2016!

Really?

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

Given the context and…

…the setting, yes, I'd say it's fair.

Rand wasn't gonna get anywhere with a 15-second space in which to dissect private property rights, so he pivoted powerfully and threw a haymaker at that whole network's credibility. And it was completely relevant and justified.

He gains with independents/liberals for teaming with Booker on the issue he was there to discuss, and he gains with the Republican primary voter who detests MSNBC.

Seemed to put..

him in his place to me. He was factual even when he was pressed. He didn't take the bait and stayed on his message. When Booker was asked next, he came to Rands defense in a subtle way.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

It was

Really hard to watch. Prime example of a politician dodging a question (albeit a biased question). Really made me sick, he had to figure they would take advantage of that situation.

Not sure why he would even put himself in this type of situation so soon after the Maddow attack on this exact issue last week. Naive if you ask me.

Sheesh

But why shy away? Why could he not explain what he has in other situations. It would have been perfect to explain private property rights and that inherent flaw within the Civil Rights Act.

He can't just act like he's never said it, he's on tape saying he agrees with the civil rights act, but is very leery of the clause on private property.

I guess this is the beginning of the game, it's just not normal for me to see quite yet.

Do you have recomendations on your phone

I do. Its pretty cool. When I type a word, it gives me recommendations for what word I want to use next. Lets say I type the word Love. Well the recommendation I get after love is "a". Interesting huh?

If I follow the next recommendation i get "love a good day to all the time of the most important thing is that the only one who is the best of luck to you and your family etc..."

How bout another word. Lets try hope.

hope you have a great day and night and I will be a good day to all the time etc...

How about Sled.

Sled.
Nothing. No recommendations. Weird huh?

Give me a word.

If you own a deli and make an offer for business, and someone comes in and accepts, that is a legal contract. The deli owner cannot then back out of the contract.

That is so silly, so if you put up a 'baby sitter wanted' sign and someone with a shady past applies, you have to give him the job?

Of course not, and open sign does not mean the public has a right to be there, it is still private property.

Hate to

Sound stupid, but is this really true? In certain states only? I thought "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason" got owners out of this. I guess that would explain itself as a clause in the contract agreed to when walking in the door.

Seems like an exchange of money for a service or product would be a "contract."
