    Thats funny. Everyone with a clearance understands a common standard, which is to not put classified information on an unclassified system. In reality it is a pretty basic standard. Don’t do it. She obviously can’t follow simple standards.

    So dumb. Sure, the cops will come out and check it out. Once they realize the guys are not carrying a gun, they should leave. Not breaking a law…………nothing to see. He even came out and said you are not breaking a law. So dumb.

    Hannity is a Trump hack. I have pretty much stopped listening to his show on my way home from work. I just can’t swallow it anymore.

    He never actually confronts Trump, or Trump’s supporters/surrogates in a meaningful way. Never actually presses them to answer.

    Even though I am a “NeverTrump” supporter, as well as a “NeverHillary” advocate, I would have much more respect Hannity if he would just come out of the closet for Trump. Just man up.

    Rush I am a little on the fence about. I assess that he supports Trump. However………he has also said that if you want a true conservative, your guy is Cruz. So, I applaud him for that.

    Trump is far from a conservative. He is “winning” due to liberals crossing over and voting for him in the primary. Wherever you are locked in to vote how you registered, Trump looses.

    Heck, Trump’s kids couldn’t even bother registering to vote in the Republican primary in NY. I assume they have voted before, they are old enough. So, what where they? I assume Democrats.

    Just saying.

    Think about it.

    “The people” actually don’t have much say. Yes, we go to the voting booth and select who we prefer. Most states lock the delegates in proportionally on the results of said vote. However, it is the delegates that actually nominate our candidate, not the people.

    While the delegates might be “locked” into voting how they were told to on the 1st ballot, and in some state they are “locked” on the second ballot if there is one as well………….there really is nothing keeping them from jumping ship all together and voting for whom ever they want on the 1st ballot honestly. They will not be fined. They will not be charged with a crime. They will not be sued. The only thing that can really happen if the state leadership wants is that they be barred from being a future delegate.

    So, while Trump may have over 700 “pledged” or “locked” delegates, there is a very good chance that maybe 100 or even more may be “NeverTrump” supporters. What if they all just forewent their duties to vote for Trump on the 1st ballot, and voted for Kasic or Cruz instead? Trump couldn’t do a dang thing.

    We only have the illusion that we are casting a ballot that actually counts for something. We are only stating our preference.

    I’d much rather not have delegates. It would be much easier to do everything just off a simple majority vote. Everyone votes on convention day. It will take multiple votes, but the first to 50.01% wins. All “the peoples” votes. No delegates.

    I agree with what others have said. If Donald is saying that he will surround himself with the greatest minds during his potential presidency, why is he not doing that now? Did he not have a single person on his payroll that knew about how the CO delegate selection would go down? He obviously didn’t care much about CO, and instead focused his attention to ensuring that as many liberals as possible would vote for him in NY to get above the 50% threshold to win all the delegates.

    Why don’t more people talk about all those liberal votes going to Donald? If you were banned from registering to vote on election day, and were only allowed to vote how you registered……………he would not be where he is today. He would have tanked long ago. Liberals are excited for him to run against Hillary. They know Hillary will crush him. They will make him look like the worst sexist man in America. He has openly bragged about having relations with married women, and how many women he has had relations with, etc. All those comments aimed at Megan Kelly and others. He is toast.

    He isn’t a real conservative. Plain and simple. He is only saying what people want to hear to further himself. How much money did he give to Hillary’s 2008 presidential run? Other liberals?

    Stop whining when you loose a contest. A contest that the rules were agreed upon back in August.

    The American people don’t elect the nominee. Delegates do. How the system was set up. Deal with it.

    I would have fought back against Bill’s “What are you selling us” question. I would have said, “I’m not selling anything”, “I am putting forth policies that can help you”, etc. Trump sells.

    And yes, even the majority of Faux News supports Trump. They are afraid to go after him. They are afraid that if they do, they will be shut out of coverage, etc. Poor journalism. Lack of morals.

    I just send this in to Hannity via his website………….

    I am a relatively long time listener to your show. Whenever I am in my car from 9am to 6pm, I have either you, Beck, or Rush on the radio, depending on what time it is.

    Saying that, I have to take issue with your public stance of not endorsing a candidate this primary election cycle. You say you are not endorsing Trump. You say you are not endorsing Cruz. Nor are you endorsing Kasic. That is all good and stuff, but your actions tell a different story.

    I don’t have a twitter account, but you can obviously go on and view tweets. So, I just took a look at yours after reading a headline on the Blaze that stated you have been unable to book Cruz for an hour long special for the last 10 days.

    You say you are not endorsing anyone, yet, all the original tweets, tweeted out by your twitter account for the last several days included something about Trump in them. That is just from what I can see anyway. Maybe because I don’t have a twitter account there are. I don’t know.

    You also say that you have been unable to get Cruz or a Cruz surrogate to call in to the radio show very much. But you say that you can almost always book a Trump surrogate.

    Maybe it is because Cruz, and maybe even a lot of your listeners know that you are in the bag for Trump. Why would someone want to come on your show, when they know at least behind the scenes that you are a Trump supporter?

    An NCO is not an officer.

    I was one, I would know.

    A sergeant major is the highest NCO rank, but there are technically 3 types depending on what your duty position is and if you are in charge of anyone. Sergeant Major. Command Sergeant Major. And finally, Sergeant Major of the Army.

  • [22] July 22, 2014 at 4:40am

    It is 3 years per stripe. The other side has a stripe representing each 6 months spent deployed overseas.

    Do a bit of research first.

    But yes. This guy is a POS.

  • September 17, 2013 at 2:31pm

    Ummmmmmmmmm. It would help if the Blaze could review thier articles prior to publishing them.

    It is not an AR-15. That would be either a Ruger Mini-14 or a Mini-30.

    So, either the Blaze has it wrong, or the Congressman is a moron. But in the original tweet, he doesnt say anything about it being an AR-15, so I am left to assume it is a mistake on the Blaze’s part.

    Dude got what he had comming to him. Why dont you just park closer to the curb? Would still have left him plenty of room to mitigate any door dings. People always thinking they are above everyone else by taking up two spots or parking where they shouldnt. Someone is going to get you. It woudl have been better if he wasnt in the corner spot and two cars came up on either side of him. It would have been awesome to see him have to go through the trunk to get in the drivers seat.

    Why do we allow illegals in this country again? Just curious. Just boggles my mind.

    And then, the Republicans are going to probably end up giving amnesty to these people?

    Seriously? Is that what the conservative party had come down too?

    Then there is the story of the 13 year old girl that was rapped by multiple illegals that hasnt even been brought up, or at least to national attention.

    This country is going to implode one day. Utter stupidity.

    SECURE THE DANG BORDER. PERIOD. END OF STORY.

    Then go around and round up all the illegals and ship them back over the border with a smile.

    Maybe we hook the border up with some land mines and the military with its full might.

    How can we ever expect our country to be “safe” and “secure” when we just let anyone and everyone across the border?

    He would actually be charged for such an action as he was not old enough to legally own or possess such a weapon. But if he WERE old enough to legally own/possess a handgun and were confronted by a person or persons or even animal, and felt his life was in danger (death or serious injury) he would be able to use deadly force with said handgun. But, seeing he couldnt even buy a shotgun from Walmart, because you have to be 18………………………..he would not be legally allowed to carry a weapon on his person. It would be different if he were at his dad’s house, his dad had a gun, and someone broke in. He could then use his dad’s firearm to ensure the safety of him and his brother.

    In any case, he co-sponsored a bill that helped to strengthen the castle doctrine. While not Stand Your Ground, which is a “traveling” protection, the castle doctrine is protection at your domicile.

    Just another issue that he was for before he was against.

    I wish people would just stick to thier beliefs. If you are for something continue being for it. If you are against something, dont backtrack or back-peddle on it.

    And for the love of everything, stop making everything about race. Stop trying to stoke the fire Mr Prez. Seriously. Are you not busy enough spying on everyone, now you got to incite some more riots and protests? Maybe take another hack at gun control?

    Bird shot is for wusses.

    Assuming it was a shoty, he needs at least 00 Buck!

    The girl in the passenger seat needs to be charged as well. I am sure she could have called Crime Stoppers and been given a few bucks for turning in her boyfriend. Might not be much, but you get something out of it and you stop a crime. But, she turned a blind eye and should be held accountable as well.

    So, did the officer just ask him casually to see his weapon………and then decided to drop the mag and count each and every round?

    “Hey, thats a nice piece of hardware, can I check her out?”

    Or was it more like……….”Sir, I am going to have to inventory every round in your magazine to ensure that you only have 7″?

    Ok………also……………so it says anything over 7 rounds in your “MAGAZINE” and you are in violation. What if you have 7 in the mag and 1 in the chamber? 8 rounds, but there are only 7 in the magazine. Sounds legit to me.

    I think the original version was chambered for .380ACP. I could be wrong, but I think that is what I saw.

    .380′s are tiny pistols with very little metal (the wife has a Ruger LCP). And considering that they make AR-15 upper recievers from polymer……………..I dont see anything that would cause it to blow up if they designed the gun with enough plastic.

  • May 13, 2013 at 10:07am

    The real test would be attempting it again with the metal “nail” firing pin and a round (can be a spent shell case or blank for safety) in the chamber.

    Otherwise, right now it is just a watergun. Basically a supersoaker. Or just a child’s toy.

    This story so far is a non starter. It “proves” nothing, aside that a metal detector wont detect plastic. Duh. But the firing pin and the spent shell or blank would likely trigger some reaction to the detector depending on the setting it is on.

    I don’t think it would work RANGER1965. Can you imagine 100-300 paratroopers on a mass, night time, tactical jump from 800ft trying to steer their chutes?

    The T-10s and now T-11 chute is pretty “dumby proof”. Sure, its less forgiving and an abrupt stop at the end of the ride………..But doing a free fall with a “cool” chute at 800ft with all that gear, I dont think it would end that well. Lol.

    I couldn’t even imagine if they were called in to do a real combat jump at about 500ft. By the time they jumped, cleared the aircraft and pulled the ripcord………splat.

    **** happens. Thankfully that never happend to me.

    We were always instructed that if your reserve opens and starts snaking to the door, you and everyone in front of you needs to beat feet out, because if those in front dont, they will just become cushioning for the guy that is being dragged out.

    The bad thing, is that not only is his reserve now open, but once he “exited” the aircraft, his main opens as well. You would think two parachutes would mean a better landing……….but it would be a bit dificult to “control” your decent with both deployed.

    Thankfully he made it through without any injuries. I have seen a bunch of people get messed up on jumps. My last jump in Division was my last for a reason. It was my 4th brain injury. I almost remember nothing from that night, aside from what I was told by my fellow paratroopers.

    All in all, I miss those days. Every time I get on a plane now, I look out the window waiting for the plane to reach 800-1500ft, and being disapointed when I realize that it isnt a C-130 or C-17, and I am now longer on jump status.
