    How unbelievable for this nimrod to address the loss of the flight as having a silver lining… libs cry that they’re empathetic, but are so cold and heartless in reality. God bless and comfort the folks who have lost loved ones. I can’t imagine the agony of their limbo… not knowing what occurred.

    On the other hand, the pacific garbage gyre is also beyond the pale. I’m no lib, but when I read there are actually FIVE of the monster whirlpools (some larger than TEXAS!) of mostly plastic, it’s obvious that this is pollution of much more concern than most of the environmental nonsense we see today. Did you know that we actually have no idea what affect plastic has on humans in the long term? This plastic gyre is slowly disintegrating into the ocean, becoming consumed by wildlife and entering the food chain. This should be of concern to everyone, when food purity is concerning.

    The Bible tells us we are to be stewards of the earth. We’re failing miserably in this instance. Why the heck isn’t there a charity out there with nets gathering this crap up and disposing of it properly? That’s an operation I could support… I see what shows up on our ‘pristine’ Alaska beaches… and I’m horrified.

    This is beyond outrageous. The Blaze is only giving part of the story here. Try these links for more info: and

    And where does Providence want to send this boy? To BOSTON to a Johns Hopkins hospital. With Justina Pellegrino’s confinement coming from there, I’d never so much as step foot in the state, let alone the city of Boston.

    You can speculate all you wish here, but if you read these other articles you’ll see how beyond the pale these actions really are.

    This is the beginning of the end: our government has no respect or trust for the individual. Our big government thinks it knows what is best for us. Thank you, socialists, commies and DEMOCRATS. Might as well be Nazis, one and all. I’m calling our Governor and senator to put my two cents worth in, let me tell you. You should do the same and let’s hold these miscreants responsible!

    Okay, so she said it was a ‘truck.’ It didn’t say pickup truck in the article (I didn’t watch the video), so I’m wondering if could have been something else, such as a Suburban, Excursion or similar. Heck, I refer to my 4-door Jeep as a truck…

    So sorry for this family. The son shows incredible wisdom

    ‘A car had stopped to let the 55-year-old cross the street in an area not marked as a crosswalk. ‘

    This was probably the source of the problem. When a single driver stops like this (particularly on a 4-lane or 2-lane with a turn lanes), they can end up causing so many problems. I experienced this myself when a driver in a turn lane motioned someone out and directly in front of me, causing a wreck. These people mean well, I’m sure, but It’s better to follow the road rules; the ones we’re all familiar with. It’s one thing to be courteous, stop, and allow a person, entering the road from the right, to enter your lane in front of you. It’s another matter all together to try to direct traffic when you only control one lane.

    God bless both families. Whether losing a loved one or causing one to be lost, both suffer.

    Last post and I’m outta here: If we followed the Bible when it came to relationships, we’d be so much better off. “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies” it says. It doesn’t say a beautiful woman, but a virtuous one.

    Teaching the ‘Princess’ principal can be damaging to girls. If she’s taught that she’s a princess, special, beautiful, that prince charming will take care of her, this is what her sense of self is base on. When he doesn’t arrive, and some harsh comment tells her she isn’t Barbie beautiful, she can crash and feel unworthy of respect. Examples:

    1. I know a woman who can’t decide where to go when the two of get together to walk. Her husband makes all the decisions. She always defers to my choice in the entire time I’ve known her, and this is a matter of years.
    2. I knew a woman whose husband punished her by locking her in the bedroom. I witnessed this, it was normal to her.
    3. I worked with a young married woman whose husband wanted to hide in the closet and watch while she had sex with the paper boy. He also told this slender young lady, still in her teens, that she was too fat: her thighs were touching. A couple of years later I saw her again: she’d descended into a drug/prostitution nightmare and looked like she was from a concentration camp. He started pimping her out.
    4. Have a friend whose father put both her brothers through college, but wouldn’t pay her tuition because, after all, she was ‘just a girl.

    Strawman my a**. I’m NOT a feminist, I’m a pragmatist, and pity the little girl whose parents perpetuate the “Princess” myth.

  • November 15, 2013 at 4:22pm

    @ Ghost of Jefferson: We’re arguing apples and oranges here in a way: I’m talking about what the article as it stands conveys, and about the message itself. It doesn’t say you don’t need a man EVER. It DOES say: be prepared for real life. You can be happy BEFORE you meet prince charming. There is life BEFORE marriage. It can mean that ‘prince charming’ won’t always be there to hold your hand through the fender bender, the broken dishwasher, etc. Good grief! You’re really discounting the message of subjugation the ‘Princess’ myth perpetuates: setting girls up to be disappointed in every single man she comes across because he isn’t perfect! And you’ve bought into it, too, with your beauty comments and name calling. And by the way, I’m not a troll. I actually did a TV commercial in my younger days. My husband tells me I’m beautiful every single day, and, when it comes down to it, who really cares about anyone else’s opinion? I think that’s the true message here, being true to yourself.

    By the way, you can’t blame the breakdown of the family strictly on feminism. You need to factor in economic conditions (our mothers could AFFORD not to work, many of us can’t), culture (societal acceptance of unwed mothers, lack of shame from being on the dole, an entitlement mentality), corrupt government (illegal immigration, fast and furious, etc.) and, to my mind, mostly the subtle invasion of communism, atheism and liberalism into our schools and universities .

    And by the way, I chose tradition and chose a family; I just ended up divorced after a disenchanting relationship fueled by the ‘princess’ myth that left me unable to support myself and my sons. I believe in God. I believe he gave us free will for a reason. I don’t believe in abortion, as it concerns life. I believe that you don’t have the right to tell me how to live, and I don’t have the right to tell you how to live. Isn’t that true freedom? Why would you want to deny that to the other half of the population? I truly expected an intellectual conversation here, not a descent into name calling…. puzzling from someone with calling himself “Ghost of Jefferson.” Oh, wait, maybe not….

  • November 15, 2013 at 3:33pm

    Because you love each other and are willing to communicate and compromise where called for, and are dedicated to your marriage. I’ve had it for 30 years, and wish everyone could be so blessed.

    Sorry, Ghost of Jefferson, I’m not getting you. This is all about choice, and having the power to choose for yourself. Exactly where in the article does it put men down? All I see is a chance for little girls to grow to their full potential, and not be boxed in by old, traditional labels. To know which end of a screwdriver to use and not have to call her father, brother, plumber, male friend, or worse, be stuck if they’re unavailable. To not have to call a plumber to turn a wrench when the faucet leaks. To know which end of the jumper cables to use when you end up at the mall with a dead battery.

    Good grief! Many of the comments here sound like men who would prefer their women barefoot and pregnant! We have enough people on this earth as it is, and not every one is cut out to be a good mother, and she shouldn’t have to be. How dare a woman have a brain! How dare she not want to play the game: ‘helpwess without a big, strong man to take care of her.’ A man has to be pretty insecure to think women should fit this mold. This is what you’d want for your mothers, sisters, daughters?

  • November 15, 2013 at 3:20pm

    Wrong. It is about facing reality and knowing you don’t have to run to a man to solve any or all of your problems. That you are strong enough to handle it yourself. That you are not a helpless, second class citizen who can’t function without another (male) person around. That you can decide what your life will be, and are not subject to pleasing someone else unless you choose to do so. That you search for the man you will love forever at the time and in the way you choose. That you will be open to that possibility with men who are respectful of and value more than your body. That you will be his partner, helpmate, cheerleader and give your all forever.

    That you value yourself enough to not put up with the crap men are constantly flinging at you as you date, including being subjected to condescending name calling (cupcake, sweetcheeks, etc.) being pawed and pinched, approached with pornographic comments, etc. You will not be his mother. You will not be subject to his approval. You do not need his ‘approval’ for every little decision, but will respect boundaries that the two of you set together for these events. That while it will never entirely be 50/50, and may often be 60/40 or even 80/20 at times, it will all balance out in the end.

  • November 15, 2013 at 2:42pm

    @ Ghost of Jefferson: So you must have a problem with men and women staying single, as you say we all need each other. I’m just saying that a woman who is unable to support herself, and has been brain-washed to think her life isn’t worth living unless she’s in a relationship with a man, is at a true disadvantage in this life. Men aren’t taught that they’re not valuable unless they have a woman. Women ARE taught and judged on this principal. A woman who is unable to support herself and ends up divorced and on welfare is a drain on our society. Giving women the very practical advice to learn a profession/job skill is NOT feminism; it’s practicality.

    Unfortunately, women are taught that their value lies in their appearance, with intellect being devalued. Think not? Just go back and look at how many negative comments are made about a woman’s looks if she says something that someone else doesn’t agree with. Ever see that with a man? About the only exception I’ve seen is with fat men (and fat women get it, too). Yep, fat white people are the scapegoats these days, and one of the most discriminated against.

    I also stand by this: a happy, confident woman has a better chance at a successful relationship than one who’s waiting for a man to come along and ‘make’ her happy.

  • November 15, 2013 at 2:31pm

    Finishing the comment: Our girls deserve to know their value is inherent!

  • November 15, 2013 at 2:00pm

    Tragically, many women have been programmed to believe that their lives don’t begin until they have a man. I grew up with that message. I’d have been a hell of a sight better off to have been grounded in faith and reality. Instead, I thought my true love would come along, care for & ‘rescue’ me from the demands of daily life, living happily ever after. Divorced, I was a single mom raising two kids with no real employment skills.

    This message is a NO BRAINER. It’s not aiming to downplay men or relationships between the sexes: it’s to build up girls’ self-esteem and keep them from becoming victims! I’m a baby boomer. Many times I’ve encountered widows/divorcees who can’t balance a checkbook or function in real life because their husbands handled it all and kept them as “the little lady.” Conversely, I’ve seen young ladies today who think life isn’t worth living because they don’t have a boyfriend in their lives and this includes pre-teens! Today’s sexually explicit media, liberal culture and peer pressure leads our children to believe that sex is the be-all, end-all of life & that a girl isn’t a woman, or hip, or with it, unless she’s sleeping with every Tom, Dick and Harry who comes along.

    Calling this feminism is CRAP. An educated, self-supporting, confident woman is more attractive & brings better assets to a relationship. EDUCATE your children properly, or they’ll swallow every stupid thing they see/hear out there. Our girls deserve to know their

    We were forced to quit buying health insurance over 5 years ago, when the cost to our family went to OVER $20,000 a year. We were hit with a medical problem in May. Bills are over $400,000. Since the Evil One made it to the oval office, our financial situation as business owners has been a continual deterioration, to the point that bankruptcy is creeping into the picture. The tax and government reporting requirements are unforgivably burdensome – regulation is stifling the economy. We are unemployed. The financial burden is unbelievable. Put a fork in us, we’re done. Just hope we can stay off the government gravy train.

    God have mercy on us all…

    What in the world would be illegal about firing teachers who obviously think child molestation is no big deal, and that the perp deserves leniency?! Is common decency and morality no longer expected in the teaching profession? I’m all for loyalty to a friend, but this is beyond the pale. Would they defend him nearly as loudly if it were their child who was the victim? I think not…. shameful. The worst of it is they probably don’t even realize what the uproar is about over their support letters. How sad is that?

    The teachers’ morals are questionable at best, in a time when we need all the common sense, wisdom, ethics, and moral accountability we can find. Much of our country has become lawless, Godless and morally bankrupt as the rest of us looked on in literal disbelief, not realizing or noting how quickly and thoroughly the indoctrination had/was taking place.

    God have mercy on the generations to come.
