I’m struggling to find the downside of your logic.

GrandpaOf4 I completely agree. If somebody is too violent to be released into a civil society, they should not be released. If they are released, they should get all rights restored back to them. I’m sure that somebody will make the nonsensical argument about gangbangers getting released and then buying a gun. So what? At least they won’t murder somebody and steal their gun. We all know that those types of people will get a gun whether it’s legal to do so or not. So at least make them pay taxes on the gun and prevent a violent robbery to get it.

harry–I believe there have been 36 or 37 states that have voted on it. 34 of those states did not agree with your worldview. I also believe that 34 out of 36 or 7 is still considered a “overwhelming majority”. In fact, I believe is a cosmic smackdown of epic proportions to the gay lobby. California was even among those states rejecting gay marriage. Wasn’t there a poll recently that showed only 3% of Americans are gay? Oh wait…I know the answer already. Americans believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman only. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Somebody’s been watching too much UFC. You can’t tap out without a ref around to help you.

I’m not a teacher, but have many in my family. I would agree with you about poor achievers, but only of for older students and all adults. Elementary students may not be “hard workers” academically because they are just trying to survive, not excel. Many don’t have food at home, a nurturing/learning environment, or good examples of hard work. Where are they supposed to learn work ethic and hard work? If teachers MUST follow a lesson plan, they can’t also teach individual students about the facts of life. Some things need to be taught at home, but unfortunately that will never happen due to poor parent(s). I don’t think there is a solution for those students short of a societal evolution….which won’t happen.

I would like to know how it affected their game. Not necessarily if they won or not, because it could be the other team wasn’t good, or they win most of their games anyway. It would be interesting to know if they played better than normal, or were a more cohesive team, or more confident….

That makes much more sense.

According to the police chief, they dismantled it AND filled it with dirt. A tunnel is a hole. The sides can be “dismantled”, but you can’t take to pieces a hole.
That's a good point. We've updated the story to reflect that it's possible that's what Eastwood was actually saying. It should be noted, however, that all the news reports I have seen quote him as saying "they're."

Thank you ax2grind I did everything you suggested. Hopefully it works, but I’m still annoyed that doing all that is necessary for this site. This is by far the worst site I frequent, as far as video pop-ups. Thanks again!!

The video advertisements on this site aggravate me to unprecedented levels. Sometimes I would rather listen to a loop of Obama giving the SOTU than hear another Nissan advertisement. I swear I will never buy a Nissan if for no other reason than their ad cannot be stopped on this site. I have closed the ad and it just pops up in another location. Yes, I’m fully aware that I can go to another site, but I don’t WANT to go to another site. I want this site to stop bombarding us with non-stop annoying video ads. There are many times that I simply don’t patronize this site just because I can’t deal with this crap. Hey Blaze staff how ’bout passing this along up the line. Glenn has even commented about this topic on the radio several weeks ago. Rant over….for now

Can we please get a follow-up to this story after both groups have had a chance to meet? I would like to see how many people attend each of the groups. I’ll bet that very few people join the big bang group aside from the children of whoever started the group.

One of those volunteers brought Daniels to tears. He told TheBlaze:
One of the volunteers came up to me with tears in his eyes and said, “My great-grandfather was a Pole who received money from the Nazis to hunt Jews. After the war when my grandmother found out she never spoke to him again.”
He said, “This is who I am, and there’s nothing I can do about it. I completely understand if you don’t want to work with me.” At that point I had tears in my eyes and I stood up and gave him a big hug. I said, “This makes me want to work with you even more.” He’s become one of our strongest volunteers.
“People are people and what happened happened a long time ago, and people need to be given the opportunity to move forward,” Daniels said.
Contrast that with what many in the black community believe. They are told that because 200 yrs ago in the US, there were whites (and blacks) that had slaves…and slavery was a worldwide institution…, so therefore, all white people now are to blame.
Many blacks in the US hold the slavery issue up as a shield to support their entitled issue. "My ancestors were slaves, so I am entitled to everything the government gives me". WRONG!
My ancestors arrived on a boat from Denmark, so I should be entitled to free boat rides. Yeah, right.
The first American slave owner was a black man... so how is THAT going to be reconciled?
Folks need to live in the here and now. Your ancestors have no influence on how the current generation live their lives. None. If you sit back and take from the government instead of getting a job, you're just flat lazy - not 'entitled'. Saying that you can't find work is just not true. If you can't find work, it's because you won't go look. There ARE jobs out there. Lots of them.
Thank you for saying what no one else will say: slavery was a world-wide trade. The African tribes sold their defeated foes as slaves. The Europeans bought them. Some were brought to the colonies, others went to Europe. THE US IS NOT THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT HAD SLAVERY. THE AFRICAN TRIBES SOLD THEIR OWN INTO SLAVERY. The blame needs to be properly placed. Think about it.

As a naturalist, Darwin would have wanted to see the bear too, and would have realized that most people have an unfounded fear of them just as they do snakes, sharks, gators and anything else they are unfamiliar with. Regardless, his opinion only carries so much water…..he thought you originated from a chimp also.
 November 26, 2014 at 11:24pm
I would have done the same thing, especially with 4 other people. The chances of even seeing the bear again would be slim (but I would try). According to the National Park Service, the chances of getting mauled by a bear IN YELLOWSTONE are 1 in 2.1 million. I also carry bear food….in the form of lead…when I’m in bear country though.
Darwin might have argued that those 1 in 2.1 million odds change to 1 in however many people are in your group if you walk directly towards where you were told a bear was stalking people.

Maybe all of his friends should go protest his death by stealing lumber and then starting a forest fire.

I’m sure that exactly like the bakery owners, this company has provided their service to gays in the past. Now, several in the gay community are trying to force the company to provide a product it doesn’t offer and never has. That is not discriminating against ANYBODY, it is refusing to provide a desired product. Why don’t the gays try buying plain t-shirts there to see if they are discriminated against? That would prove whether it’s the person or the product.
 October 13, 2014 at 9:18am
You seem to be confused. There are plenty of businesses that provide services to the public that “discriminate” based simply on what somebody is wearing (gang affiliations, sports jerseys, hats, etc) or not wearing (no shoes, no shirt, no service). Like it or not, agree with it or not, deal with it and stop crying.
