    While I understand this woman’s need to express her anguish, I think in the society we live in, this is also promoting anger and unforgiveness as people will cheer her actions.
    Some things,even when necessary, are best kept private
    I mean what GOOD can come out of making this meeting so public?

    I feel sorry for all involved. (IF the alcoholic was not penitent, I might feel differently – I don’t know)
    If we are honest, we ALL could be any one of those involved.
    Who (think ALL the way back to when you were learning to drive) has not driven at some point when it was not wise – if not being sleep or alcohol impaired, then were playing with a radio or some other device, eating,looking in the mirror,grabbing for something that was about to topple/roll off a seat or console,etc,etc. Something like this can happen in seconds and can result in many lifetimes of tragedy for all involved).

    Isn’t it time we respect personal moments/tragedy and the anguish that results as something other than “entertainment” or a “need to know”.?
    Think of your worst argument with your child or spouse when you were definitely acting in a way you now feel was shameful & have remorse over.
    Would you want the nation to be viewing it and taking sides? Now apply that to something far more horrendous and irrepairable such as this.
    ALL parties involved deserve a humane response.
    Just my take on the issue…

    He’s right. Not sure if votes matter anymore as it is. When you need no proof to show you are a citizen but require it to buy OTC medicine, there is nothing ensuring the vote which is what they want. When most of the people are on the gov’t dole, there will not vote for a smaller govt. When from K-college kids are taught that our founding fathers were racists,etc and America is something to be ashamed of while socialism is the best thing for all, etc…we have no hope except that which experience teaches. Sadly, she is a harsh teacher.
    We may not even have elections….they are as effective as the 3 branches of Gov’t are from allowing a president to unilaterally pass laws almost 30 times. It’s a farce that only bloodshed will reveal.

    Saw this comment and relate to it fully:
    Something I’d read & agree with totally. Relates to what you express here, Momrules:

    Sadly, today for the 1st time in my life, I understood why some of the Germans allowed the Holocaust to happen. When you have been screaming warnings from the top of your lungs only to be repeatedly ignored, then told you are crazy, angry, ignorant, wrong, etc, after awhile you start to just shut up. It seems no matter what you say, they cannot see the same reality you do. They tell you what you see/think/feel/sense is not the truth and point to fabrications as proof. You begin to doubt your own instinct or at least your ability to communicate the danger and you shut up and let their choices fall upon them.
    I have never been so ashamed of my countrymen.

    Saw this comment on a blog after the 2012 election and relate to it fully:

    I can second this. Knowing I couldn’t afford to pay to see your program, I’d dvd’d your programs for the last 2 months or so you were on the air. Periodically I’ve revisited them & what others were shouting was rediculous has and is coming to pass. It doesn’t take a genius to see it, only someone who isn’t convinced that they are a genius who will look at all the data objectively.
    Someone who already thinks they know everything is as dangerous as those who choose to know nothing. Same results – unteachable – life experience is the only way they will learn.

    Yes….most of this (IMHO) was a test of the people. What would make them stand up and speak out? They just kept pushing and pushing while publically demonizing anyone who did speak up until there was no resistance. They know they can get away with whatever they want. It’s all carefully being orchestrated. Listened to a holocaust survivor speaking out on youtube the other day….she kept showing the correlation between what happened then and what is happening now. Pretty spine tingling – for ex. WHY would there be a need for another militia type group when we have police & military. It’s served us for decades quite well. It is seen as strong enough to defeat the enemies of countries our soldiers are being sent to, but yet in our own country we will need more? The only reason can be that what they have in store for the people will be so reviled by current military and law enforcement that they refuse to do their job. Perhaps the same students that signed petitions in Ca. colleges to imprision or even execute Americans who are gun owners will be the ones who would have no problem doing this when others back out of their duties by drawing the line against search and seizure of American citizens who are defending their constitutional rights.

    And perverse.
    I’m not a citizen of the *globe*. I can’t choose to leave it. A permanent resident perhaps, but a citizen? That implies choice.

    Rivera is mad because he’s not good enough to interview his “idol”.
    I remember when we had the movie masacre – he called O the “Healer in Chief”.
    Idol worship is reprehensible – no wonder the Lord despises it.

  • February 7, 2014 at 10:46pm

    So true.
    I don’t believe the libs depictions of bush as hitler and satan were exactly majestic.
    Or them standing outside booing him as he left office on innauguration day.
    That was a disgusting moment I shall not forget anytime soon.
    At that point I was not fond of Bush’s performance, however, this level of disdain
    was palpable and immature. I half expected people to be blowing farts on their arms.

    How majestic was it when Bush was elected & on ABC they made the comment that we now see the next president who only is in that position because of who his father is. Another repulsive moment in Lib History that was spoken on a day documenting the innauguration of a new president. Hardly a majestic welcome I’d say.
    Libs only wish to be TREATED as majesty because they believe they are so intrinsically better than the rest of us, better educated, smarter/higher level of intelligence, more deserving of being treated like royalty. The rest of us are to bow down and worship their eminence.

  • February 7, 2014 at 10:36pm

    Absolutely….his fake sensitivity is annoying.
    No wonder Libs hate guns; without Libs, there’d be no need for them.
    I’ll bet you most of those in our prisions are liberals in their political leaning.
    Now that they’ll get Ocare, they are better off than much of the middleclass.

    More like Geraldo reached way up in O’s BUTT & saw a mirror reflecting himself in it.

  • February 7, 2014 at 10:30pm

    Notice how the only time he mentions faith or his “devotion” to the Lord’s will is when he needs something
    (votes,approval ratings,etc) from American Voters.
    I wonder if he finds his own faith an example of “clinging to guns and religion” as hehimself. phrased
    it

    I didn’t see it,(cable was out due to ice storm) but if it was done respectfully, it is a subject that NEEDS to be addressed. The fact that they are teaching kids in schools that if you believe in creationalism you are stupid, unscientific,etc, is apalling. Creationalism is however the core issue of the problems we are having as a society. I want to live up to an expectation of me to be like my FATHER, personified in JESUS, not to become a “primordial soup” – with the morals of animals. We (humankind) are so *much* more than that.
    If kids were not being ridiculed for differing in beliefs, IF homeschooling parents were not being labeled as mentally deficient if they teach creationalism and thereby losing their right to homeschool their kids, etc,
    it would be a non-issue.)
    Glenn, I thought as you did in the 60s when as a child we were taught both….since then I’ve learned it is actually very important on so many levels as a society that handles life and death issues by determining the value of a life.

    I think the tie thing was a sign of disrespect as well as an attempt to gain sympathy.
    When you respect someone or the position they hold you put on your best.
    By trying to look like a Blue Collar American, if Bill had been overly harsh some would have
    seen themselves in the president & felt sorry for him.

    I do believe that every attempt was made to throw Bill off his game; including threats or lies of one sort or another. I think Bill did a reasonable job, HOWEVER the timing was ALL WRONG.
    People look forward to sports/entertainment to FORGET about the daily grind and problems we all face as a nation. I don’t think many were paying attention much less sober.

    Who ever thought America would have its own version of Bagdad Bob leading it.
    (There is no corruption, we have destroyed Al Qada, It’s Fox News that is causing the problems, etc)

  • February 4, 2014 at 12:22am

    Bagdad Bob was more convincing

    You can no more separate yourself from your faith than you can from your genetics or the history of your family of origin…you may choose to not publically acknowledge it, may even try to not THINK about it, but none the less it fashions who you are. With faith it’s an even more intrinsic level as for the true believer it is the motivation of your every action.

  • February 3, 2014 at 1:29pm

    They weren’t giving up their FAITH for that month, only the OUTWARD PRACTICE of that faith.
    I don’t see it as the core of one’s faith. The part of your heart & spirit that communes with God cannot be stifled. I sometimes find myself praying in my sleep, saying SILENT prayers all day long, etc.
    To limit outward expression is not such a huge matter that one should lose their faith over it-If faith
    is indeed intact (not ritual or legalism). No one controls what thoughts go through your mind upon finding sleep, etc. To not go to church, speak out on faith etc, is nothing more than being alone.
    People in dangerous countries do this on a continual basis and instead of losing their faith,they find it strengthened. (Sort of a fast of words or outer actions, but the heart and spiritt are still in communion with the LORD – NOTHING can take that away if a person still IS a believver. Prayer & praise come in many forms such as admiring a beautiful sunset, or another magnificant display of nature, and sensing a deep gratitude to the creator.

    Yes, my opinion. Not discounting the benefit of interaction with community of believers in the least, just saying that it IS possible (albeit more difficult) to get closer & stay close to the Lord despite your surroundings and physical limitation.) I’m sure those with brain injuries, etc who cannot speak or carrry outward signs of worship and prayer are STILL very much in tune with their faith as it transcentds our circumstances.

    I wondered about that also. Many older people do not have computers. Also if it takes hours upon hours to get on, who has that kind of time except people on welfare already.
    Still think it’s a scam. Can’t get on? OK, then pay a fine & gov’t collects.
