We primarily we have 2 choices for our cable/satellite service: DirecTV and Dish.
I was willing to change to Dish to get the Blaze – what else that was offered on the Dish programming grid was not important.
After asking around, subscribers to Dish TV were adamant about the lack of quality with Dish – it was NOT a reliable service (they even had issues with the customer service). This was emphasized with colorful language….I got the message and stayed with DirecTV. Roku is annoying but it’s the only option I’m aware of to pickup the Blaze programming.
I moved here from the Southeast and friends who still live there, who had selected Comcast, use the same language to describe Comcast…..they really (really) do not like this service or company.
Note: Northpoint’s post gave a interesting information of the broadcasting difference of satellite and cable – DirecTV and others and the technical points in the broadcasting)
I am impressed with DirecTV’s reliability (and customer service), I really would like to have the Blaze — and I have contacted DTV twice, but they said they did not have enough requests for Blaze TV.
Call DirecTV you want the Blaze service – your opinion matters!!

Wow, the ol’ ‘holier than thou’ snark-ment. Meant to make Christians feel they are never ‘Christian enough’ —- from Obama.
I’ve had that one thrown at me enough to know it is nothing more than an effort to control the behavior of people that think for themselves, and who know a charlatan when we hear/see one.

Rather sad. A parent who has taken time to be with his children (love the name ‘Story’) and built a fort out of the most magical thing a child can find – a cardboard box.
Yet that code is in place because of people who have made it necessary to create this ruling because of others who use their front yard as a garbage dump ((my son’s neighbors have a toilet sitting on their front yard of the house…)). and becomes an eyesore as well as a health hazard for the rest of the neighborhood.
Take lots of pictures, have a fort party, and show the kids how to recycle the cardboard.

I realize that Bill very impressed with himself and has a few printable opinions. But the man and the show is one big (sick) joke. I have watched episodes in the past when he had a guest I was acquainted with and wanted to see a actual interview.
That’s just it, he cannot seem to find a format for his show. No one really talks, unless they are parroting what Bill is saying and the remainder of the show is his crude jokes about anyone that disagrees with him, or anyone he simply hates.
There is no real substance to his conversations and his guests sit there, grinning like idiots while looking at this actor-wanna-be, and his pre-written monologues for 99% of the show.
What a waste of money, and pseudo awards.
anotercomment.... Bill's show follows the same solid format each week. Opening monologue, one on one interview, 3 person panel, entertainment related guest and concludes with New Rules (which the clip was pulled from). There are a few "crude" jokes and maybe even a few curse words, but most adults don't mind. As for Real Time having no "substance", you are simply wrong. The show covers many different topics that dominated the news during the week, rather than one ridiculous topic pulled from unsubstantiated claims made more than five years ago. (Beck vs. Norquist)

…Geez, regardless of country, I believe being a steward on any low cost carrier would make a person really (really) angry. It’s like being a steward on a greyhound bus.

American pilots need at least 1500 hours and a ATP Certificate to be hired by FAA requirements. Mental health and physical examine are common requirements.
My pilots said with his collective history of mental health issues he wouldn’t have been hired by any American carrier.
Who did he know?

I’ve said that from the beginning.
Obama was placed in the White House by a group of people with an agenda – far more destructive than just democrat, liberalism, socialism, communism – the election was a facade. Obama was just a ‘face’, and sadly people like Ernest thinks he has a real job.
Now just wait until Hillary gets in there…..

“Robin refused to give details on the pilot’s religion, saying: “I don’t think it’s necessarily what we should be looking for.”
“He identified the pilot as a German national and who had never been flagged as a terrorist.”
Well, now that you brought the subject into the conversation, yes, it is something to be looking for – considering the call for world wide mobilization by the leaders of this particular religion…

.I don’t think you should advertise your security system. Residents here have a police registration decal displayed on front window, and a notice of monitored system, that all that’s needed. Security companies send signs just for free advertisement, I refused to stick it in the yard.
We had a stranger walk up to my husband while he do yard work and wanted to know why everyone in the neighborhood seem to have security systems (the signs).
He shrugged his shoulders, saying he didn’t know and the guy continued by asking what kind we had….my husband being very friendly, replied he didn’t know, that was his wife’s department….he even persisted and my husband said his wife didn’t tell him.
I did that on purpose because he would have probably told the guy, just because he’s that friendly….and I’m that suspicious…

My first thought as well: it’s a friend or a friend of a friend, etc.
However much your trust your friends, don’t trust anyone (except immediate adult family) when it comes to firearms and ammo.
The money and other items can be replaced, but knowing your guns are on the blackmarket will give you an ulcer….

…and Fritz is thinking “if I could only get this dorky bandana off my neck, I could do so much better!….and “does my human think he could do any better if I smacked his face with gross looking food products?”
We have domesticated the instincts out of our beloved animals, it’s a wonder they can’t used the toilet and flush it when finished!
But seriously, can you imagine a human doing this over and over for anyone? Fritz really adores you!….but the donuts – not so much.
Golden Retrievers are very devoted family members, and will endure so much from their humans. My Golden was a serious Italian food devotee – loved anything with tomato sauce. She would eat the tomatoes on the vine, just ripened.
Geez it annoyed my husband!

“Why do you torture them and therefore everyone else like that? Blah blah blah babysitting is expensive. That is why God equips every child with two parental units. Leave child with the other parent.”
I realized that had left out a very important point in a situation like this.
The point is yes, it take two people to make a baby but it doesn’t mean one will stick around if life gets tough.
This mother is most likely was embarrassed, mentally, and physically fatigued by her child’s behavior and would have gladly left the child in an environment better suited for the child, but sometimes those situations are not an option.
No family, no husband and a need to purchase groceries forced her to bring the child along this trip and the panicked attempt to find something to calm the child ‘leaving food all over the store’ was sad, and unfortunate.
A luxury trip to the grocery store, knowing her child is safely cared for, is only a distant and unrealistic dream for this woman.
This is real life, and dumping frustrations on the mother and beating this child for behavior that he/she cannot control is not a solution.
As you know there are levels to autism, and high functioning, autistic children learn to communicate through sign language, and it improves the behavior the child and makes the child happier – as well as the family.
The more severe cases are the children that God puts on earth for a reason.
But please do not beat children. Spanking should be used to prevent dangerous behavior.

This child has autism. If you have ever dealt with autistic children, or know a parent who must care for a child of special needs, you become very compassionate and very thankful that your child is healthy. There is very little help or support for people with children suffering with this disease.
A fellow paramedic had an adopted child with autism, and when this child had reached a limit of information and input overload, this was his only way this child could of cope. He would sit down and just cry, he did not have the verbal skills to talk about what he was feeling, and never will.
And finding a baby sitter for a special needs child is expensive IF you can find a sitter.
This ranting video proves that new media sources that we have that offers so much good to society (as in I can see and talk to my military son in Qatar), can become a tool that allows sick people to voice their demented (and frightening) opinions.
I am also ASD and screaming children are an aversive stimuli to me and no one cares if the sound of your out of control melt down addicts causes me considerable distress. I will not swear at you I will just leave. Unfortunately due to inconsiderate persons who think their little ASD snowflake is the only one on the planets whose feelings count,I end up with severe agoraphobia and can't go out to shop except in the middle of the night when the noxious screamers are hopefully not there. BTW screaming would indicate they are being overstimulated . Why do you torture them and therefore everyone else like that? Blah blah blah babysitting is expensive. That is why God equips every child with two parental units. Leave child with the other parent.

“Speculating”…meaning they don’t want to address the truth?
What surprises me is where they are NOT tweeting from: Canada.

Point: for these people to protest in Dekalb Cty/Decatur is like blacks protesting in Harlem.

Sadly, this will only be viewed by the families and community as Allah’s work calling these people into the eternal spring, yet at the very same time some how it will be blamed on America and the anger they feel towards us will increase.
….and they’ve already received a call of condolence from the White House, along with the regularly issued U.S. financial aid.

Of all the faiths that live in Israel, I have yet to hear of any crime against woman this sickening.
 March 21, 2015 at 9:04pm
This is a beautiful child and I hope the same thing happens to this murderer in prison.
Sorry some things cannot be forgiven by a human.
Violation of a child’s trust is right at the top.

I learned cell phone security from my son after his basic training…they are nothing but two way radios.
He will not talk about anything personal over a cell phone, even at home. He has cautioned me to do the same, and if it’s that important, he can come by the house.
One thing I am thankful for is the FaceTime and iMessage with my iPhone and iPad. I can talk to my son even when he is somewhere in the sand pit.
He called (silent notification) from the pit while I was in the theatre watching American Sniper. I went to the lobby to talk to him….and then cried like a mother.
We never discuss anything sensitive, but when you hear of massacre of 137 people in four blasts, you are grateful just to see your son’s face and hear his voice, you don’t care about the facts – or who reads the transcripts…(Yawn…)…you just thank God you can see and hear him.
