yeah, so what? As a West Point cadet, she should know that the eyes of her countrymen are upon her at all times and do nothing that might tend to diminish their respect for her. If there is a reg that says you can use your cell phone when at ease or route step, imho that reg is wrong.

Thanks for the history lesson, but it seems you missed my point completely. Many died and many billions were spent stabilizing Iraq, and then BHO decided unilaterally that the war was over and withdrew all the troops thus creating a power vacuum and voila, ISIS was born and we are now dealing with the consequences of the administrations’ disastrous policy.

The current administration created the mess and now we are sending troops over to train the Syrians so they can re-take the country that was theirs until Genius in Chief Obama came along.
Obama lied and lied and lied (and golfed) and hundreds of thousands died.
I love how all of a sudden Obama comes along then the mid east is crap. US policies in this region has been terrible for years. I mean is highly likely that Suadis Arabia helped attack us on 9/11 and Bush administration covered it up. You can't blame one sign let administration for the issues in the middle east nor can you blame the break up of Syria on us

I’m not saying the republicans have nominated the best of all possible candidates, but 40% of the electorate will vote democrat no matter what. Some because they want their free stuff, some because they believe republicans are evil, some because they know their best chance of overturning the existing order is by voting for the ‘D’. Barrack could have committed buggery on the south lawn the day of the election and 40% would have voted for him. Hillary could admit what we all know is true, that Benghazi is her and Barrack’s fault, and 40% would still vote for her. Why? Look no further than your nearest government school.

Couldn’t agree more. This bathroom hullabaloo is a manufactured crisis designed to provide the left with a cause during the election cycle. Beyond that, it is an opportunity for hysterical progressives to vent their hate toward anyone who disagrees with their perverted and suicidal worldview. If, as has undoubtedly happened for a long time, some gender confused dude wants to put on makeup and a dress and use the girls loo, we will probably never know about it. But rest assured, the current nonsense conjured up by the pervert reprobate in chief (PRIC) will sooner or later result in an outraged dad, husband, or boyfriend beating the crap (or worse) out of a sex offender, which will play into the hands of the progressives. In a way, you can’t blame the PRIC, because it is kind of a win-win proposition for the left.

careful listening to those voices in your head, they might start telling you to do whacky stuff…like voting democrat…
You're correct, I don't have any proof. Just the words straight out of the mouth of a member of AFA, said on air. Considering the words of a conservative are complete bull plop, I have no proof

So what? If the self-proclaimed trannies can just make things up, why not the rest of us?
And, by the way, your use of the “b” word gives us a pretty clear indication regarding your character. Do you really expect anyone to take you seriously when you write things like that?

This is all by design. The goal of Barrack and his fellow travelers is to disrupt our lives and foment as much chaos as possible as it will enable them to continue implementing their conspiracy to destroy the USA and western civilization, both of which they hate more than anything in the world.
You are correct the Marxist POS does indeed want to destroy this country and he's done a hell of a lot of damage to date. He isn't done and he'll continue his war on America after he leaves office.

Spot on. When the left is finished using an individual or group for it’s political purposes, they are cast aside like rotting banana peels, used coffee grounds, and soiled diapers. It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many who cannot see through the charade.

The perp should just claim transgender status and the Obama justice department will cover his legal expenses and gender reassignment surgery. Then he’ll get to go on Oprah and write a book. What a great country!
meanwhile, the baby will be prosecuted and sentenced to 20 years in Gitmo
Yes, thanks liberals (especially the antichrist-in-chief) for ruining our country.

liberty, @violet is just a garden variety hysterical progressive. Ignore them and they usually go away.

Sorry, Ms. Festival, the statistic is true. The suicide rate for transsexuals is about 9X higher than the general population. Regardless of the amount of progressive propaganda to the contrary, someone who is very unhappy with themselves is not going to ne made happy through genital mutilation.

Yesterday on the radio I heard an interview with a high school student regarding the bathroom issue. Nevermind that the student’s response was a completely vacuous and emotion filled regurgitation of leftist propaganda, my first response was, why in the world should anyone be interested in the opinions of someone who for all practical purposes has zero life experience and no qualifications to make moral judgments about the situation?
And then it hit me: That is a pretty good description of the guy who decreed that boys who are high school seniors must be allowed to use the same restrooms as girls who are high school freshmen, and has the power to send people with guns to enforce the decree.
What could possibly go wrong?

So, Mr. Progress it is up to self appointed experts (like you?) to set us all straight, is that right?
What a load of garbage. What I object to is people who have the audacity to insist that they have the moral right to tear down the pillars of our society in the name of “tolerance” when they haven’t a clue regarding the consequences of doing so. This is Marxist to the core: Destroy the existing social order because we are absolutely convinced that dialectical materialism will inevitably result in the utopia we desire, and yet you cannot cite a single example of that actually working. That is why the left on college campuses now simply shouts down everyone they disagree with, because in their world the debate is over and compromise is not possible. THAT is cowardice and bigotry.
And by the way, who gave you the right to impose your view of morality on me? Hmmm?
 May 16, 2016 at 9:15pm
The left doesn’t give a rats patootie about transgenderism, they are merely using them as stooges to accomplish their goal of destroying the most important pillar of our culture: The family. They (the left) are targeting children through the government education establishment because by doing so they will create an army of automatons not unlike the Nazis did with the Hitler Youth to accomplish their ultimate goal of destroying western civilization. The parallels between the Third Reich and the left of our time would be difficult to believe if they weren’t so striking:
- The leaders of both (Hitler and Obama, that is) are demagogues who will use whatever means are expedient to impose their will
- Political opponents are to be crushed, not debated, and compromise is not in their lexicon
- The followers of both are taught to believe that obtaining whatever they want is their right
- The military is viewed as an instrument of imposing their will not just on other nations but upon their own citizenry
- Anyone who disagrees with their dogma is evil incarnate
My opinion is that the tyrannical minority oppressing the rest of us will continue to push, poke, and prod the political right until the right has finally had enough at which point they will take up arms, which is exactly what the left wants, as it will provide justification for using their army of brown shirt thugs and the military to “protect” the populace and “restore order.”
My, what interesting times we live in!

are you really interested in dialogue?

When Trump first said that he would ban muslims from entering the country, my reaction was that love him or hate him, the guy is too smart to really think he could get away with doing something like that. To me, it seemed more of a statement that we have a very serious problem and the way to get it under control is not by allowing tens of thousands of undocumented refugees carte blanche a la Barrack Obama.
Beyond that, I think a whole bunch of people just need to take a deep breath and accept that during a political campaign people will say just about anything to curry favor with the segment of the electorate they want to please. That didn’t start with Trump and it will not end with him.

Great points. If, as the so-called atheists believe, the flood narrative is fiction, how then would it be genocide? An event that never took place would be a non-event, so why get your underpants in a twist over it? I think most people capable of free thought know the answer to that…
Yet another example of progressive hysteria over the fact that there are people who disagree with them. In their utopia, failure to agree with the leftist dogma will be punishable by death, followed by free unicorn rides and mind altering lollipops for everyone else.
You bring up an interesting point...however your confusion fades when you realize that there are two separate issues being argued here:
1) The story of the Great Flood is nothing more than a fable from the past.
2) In the overall narrative about an angry Tribal deity named Yahweh, who, not satisfied with the way he bungled his creation idea, decided to commit genocide and drown nearly every damn man, woman and child, in addition to the vast number of fetuses in the womb as well as most all other life forms, because they were all evil !!!
Absolutely preposterous !!
I think the main issue for atheists/agnostics like myself is : Why would anyone worship and respect such a tyrannical deity ?
I've yet to hear a convincing response to that question from any theist ever.
