Look, you Trump supporters can do whatever you want. I’m a Texan and Cruz was my guy. I don’t want Hillary. I’ve work the polls in my county. BTW, Trump didn’t win any counties in Texas. Cruz won every county, Hillary won every county. My business covers 20 counties in South Texas, but there are 6 more I will go to if they need me. I cover 200 to 400 miles a day, working with all kinds of folks. You don’t drive up to a gas station, feed store, parking lot and hear Rush or Hannity on the radios anymore. You hear people say “he don’t need our vote” – that’s the election talk. No names, no what if’s, just he don’t need us or our ideas. Republicans only hold South Texas by a little bit. Bexar County (San Antonio) and Travis (Austin) love Hillary. She will win Harris (Houston) and Dallas. Republicans win in Texas because we come out and vote every time. We know we have to. If you are a Trump supporter and not worried about Texas – you should. Everyone will vote the down ticket, but they believe you when you say you can do it without them.
Oh don't worry, Trump supporters have giant sticks up their asses as well, they are just honest about it!

Sorry, I don’t believe that, wish I did. Hope you are right.

Sorry about the errors above, bad weather/connection here. Anyway, Ginsburg, Kennedy, Breyer, Thomas, Alito, Sotomayer, Roberts, Kegan – who is retiring?

I am a Cruz person. He is my Senator. But, I am now looking at my options. People who support Trump keep talking about all of these court choices. Who are they? At present there is 1 open seat.
What liberal judge do you see stepping down if Trump wins? Do you think someone will die? Scalia was pretty unhealthy. Let’s say Trump wins and gets four years. They are going to have to die at just the right time. When Cruz made the argument about justices being replaced, to me, if was more possible. He has worked with and around the older justices on the court. He has argued before them. Having a strict constitutionalist like Cruz picking their replacement maybe they would have retired. Big maybe But, the feminist or the environmentalist (the two most likely liberals) leaving if Trump is in the WH? I don’t see it.
Minimum of two will be appointed during next 8 years.

avoter, if Texas allows a write-in vote, then vote for your Senator. I plan on writing in Ted Cruz's name in November. :c)

Trump speaks about taking away the 1st amendment if he doesn’t like you. The 2nd, I think the fight to ban ALL guns will take place in individual states before it reaches the court. That will be so ugly, there might not be a court. When it comes to 3 or 4 Justices, this is my point exactly about Trump supporters paying attention now until they get their way and then tuning out again. Right now there are 2 liberal justices that had signaled (before Obama was nominated) they could step down, but neither has. Why? I have said I don’t want Hillary. You guys make this so personal and yet you think NO ONE else takes this seriously. Trump and many of his supporters don’t even know the players on the field. As of this moment there is 1 open seat. Threading the needle on a court pick is not easy to do. If you think it is foolish to point out that a man, who will not educate himself on the way the country runs and who runs it at present, may not be up to picking one – okay. Just like Trump and his supporters, every other official (elected or appointed) has their own agenda too. Not to mention those who didn’t vote for your guy or don’t vote at all. These are unsettled times. “Bite off my nose to spite my face”, when we are (at present) talking about 1 justice, that is unnamed and unseated. Really? Levin and Beck do not own me. I do enjoy listening, sometimes screaming at them. Unlike some Trump supporters my foulness is between me and the TV/radio.
 May 7, 2016 at 12:51am
This stuff is why Trump will lose. I’m a Cruz fan. I love my Senator. I could have voted for maybe 5 of the others running, no problem. Before he started talking I could have voted for Trump. I could not wait to see what he would bring to the table. Trump gives me no reason to vote for him. Some of his supporters are really offensive. I don’t want Hillary. I keep trying to find something about Trump that I could go with. And then he does stupid things like this. The odds that Hillary would share the stage with another woman are really small. Warren and Hillary are not fans of one another. Look at her comments, she is no shill for Hillary. Now because Trump refuses to inform himself, he starts a war with a woman that represents the democrats that don’t want Hillary. Trump and his supports are ripping apart their party and bringing together the democrats. Did any of you people even pay attention to politics before Trump? You come here and scream “bow to us” and you don’t even know who your fighting against.
This kind of stuff is why Trump should have lost, but the media went along with it. $2 Billion in free TV time on all the networks at all hours of the day and night.
Cruz should be the nominee for president. Trump is not worthy of the office.
Absolutely right...Tin Foil Don....needs to get his nose out of the enquirer and know what is going on in politics....before Sanders jumped in his supporters wanted Warren to run the powers that be in the democratic party were begging her but there was a plan and that plan was Hillary and that is why Warren stayed out...but those voters respect and would still vote for Warren in a minute if she were in and Bernie was out.....notice Trump doesn't really go after Hillary to much when he does it is pretty soft stuff.
Well then you are biting off your nose to spite your face. You will never see anyone in the Whitehouse again besides a liberal progressive if Hillary wins. You will lose your 1st and 2nd amendment rights after she appoints 3 or 4 Supreme Court Justices. So stop listening to Glenn Beck and Mark Levin and think for your self because you really are smarter than these two dopes put together. There will be severe consequences if Hillary is elected.

I’m done with ALL of this. David Barton, Glen Beck these men are all talk. While they make money to protect themselves. They ALWAYS find a way to abandon the “little” people in the end. Good luck to all of you, but really just like the GOP it is one excuse after another. “God wants me to scare the heck out of you, but he doesn’t want me to use my influence to help you, unless of course you want to buy a book..” – Okay
@a voter: what contribution have you made? You disgust me. Do your own fighting, dip stick
avoter must be concealing mad amounts of wisdom, please share some.
If Beck and Barton scare you, how does Obozo, Hitlary and the rest of these Lying, Murdering, Communists make you feel ?
No one has ever promised or hinted to come to your rescue, but without hearing the TRUTH here you won't stand a chance against the Commies and MuSLIMES.
It could be argued, if he had chosen to run for office, that he just did everything to seek power. Darned if you do, darned if you don't. I respect his choice, even if I wish he would run.
As for the money thing, that's pure crockery (but no offense; pet peeve). Like it or not, money is necessary in this world. Those who complain about people who do make money while doing good usually don't do much good themselves... And ignorance really is a huge problem right now. The truth is we need people doing the right thing in all walks of life, not just politics.
So when are your running? BTW, Glenn has more influence behind a microphone than he would in Washington.
Avoter is completely correct. Beck cares about making money. He found an untouched niche in an American minority who feel minimized. The ultra right christians had no one to vent their never ending frustrations to, no matter how odd they are; and frankly fictional and paranoia filled...the war on christians, war on Christmas, war on easter, war on israel, taking god out of everything, abortion, gays, the rapture, socialism, communism, Marxism, Leninism, the tea party, blacks, women and whatever other kookie things come to mind. Beck stepped right in. I give him credit for finding and exploiting this group. They feel vindicated because they have a “true” spokesman that rallies to their cause and Beck has their money.

I hope other Texas parents will do as I did this morning. I contacted my school district and told them that none of my children will participate in any activity which includes this school. Not a sport, not a band event, not a chess game. Nada. Plano can’t stop this behavior, because they don’t want to. If my kids school wants to remove them from their teams/groups/clubs so be it. And, because I know the comment is coming….this is Texas after all….YES no playing EVEN if it means removal from the team. I’d rather just pay for college then compromise with whatever evil spawned this.

I just want to live in a world where 2+2 = 4. I keep hearing these democrats screaming that closing the government means paychecks wont go out. People will have to stay home, their will be uncertainty. Just the work and money spent on PREPARING for a “maybe” shut down stops all forward progress. Government employee cant go about their real work and the planning costs billions of dollars.
YA THINK JACKAZZES? WELCOME TO MY WORLD EVERY TIME YOU RE – REGULATE OR PASS A NEW LAW.

The time to give interviews about internal state plans was – NEVER. Quit talking and get finished with those domes along the coast. When are you going to start on Perry’s rumored sea wall plans? If we were actually allowed to police the border it would be doable without the federal government. We have seen time and time again that the feds restrict our ability to see to our safety from the south.
If you’re a farmer or rancher with secondary grey water wells you need to be updating them. We need three to four more desalination plants up and running, including the ones that are currently going up. Everyday I see electrical pole work going on, but we need to get that underground. We are on track with solar – biggest fields in the country. But we are not working hard enough on personal fuel. Not enough farmers and ranchers are ready to make their own.
We are still building with wood on the surface, that HAS to stop. We are not updating the rail system fast enough to move troops or supplies throughout the state in a crisis. I am not talking about fast rail, but updating the old rail system already in place. We don’t have enough public transportation running on hydrogen. If your not making your own loads, have not updated your welding skills and don’t have at least one garden underground working off light tubes – your falling down on your job as a Texan.
I could clearly go on and on. People from other states used to joke that you got a few ac

Given that the Mom was the first to die I think we can say she tried to stop him. But, I have to tell you the first time I attended a PTA meeting about these kind of school shootings I knew we were in trouble. I got up and suggested that we should all think of our kid as the possible shooter. That way we would all be watching everyday. You would have thought I was suggesting that the earth was square. I mean it was just not possible “their” kids would do this.
Yeah, so what's new? Most parents lose all objectivity when it comes to 'their' kids. It's as if they are the only immaculate ones in existence and not merely humans like all the rest. Those are the children who have their parents wrapped around their little fingers. It is even worse in these days when parents try too much to be friends, rather than to be parents. And that’s a big reason why this culture is going steadily downhill. Our grandparents would have flatly punished children for the things that modern parents just excuse away. We are reaping what we have sewn.
I have known a very few people who could evaluate their own children objectively. I respect them very deeply. Half of the problems of life stem from not being able to take the blinders off in many areas of life. The ones who can are few and far between. If you can do it, be prepared to be seen as a leper... But just know that yours is the better way.
I wonder if that’s similar to the syndrome of “all elected officials are horrible except, of course, for mine...?”
And people want to blame the gun, if the gun has the mentality to kill it wound have ran away from this mother and her kid, how ever it is nothing other than a miss used tool.
Where was the dad in all of this? Some corporate exec that didn't want his rep tarnished. Sounds like he paid the ex off big-time to be rid of the crazy son. It takes two parents to raise a child. And when one bails they are immediately at fault in my book. Hands down. I hope they go after him big time and stop blaming the mother who has already paid the ultimate price with her life.
It is unlikely that "she tried to stop him", considering the police reports. She was shot in her pajamas while in bed - probably in her sleep, indicating there was no struggle that occured in the moments leading up to her death.
On a more important note - although the mother may have been negligent concerning the manner in which she stored her guns (speculation), I do not believe she is solely at fault for what happened. Adam is sited as having been "intelligent" so it's reasonable to assume that he would've found another means of achieving his twisted plot, even if the guns were locked up. He probably would have broken into the safe or stolen guns from elsewhere. Criminals don't abide by laws, afterall. Hence why banning guns from civilians would be futile and actually more harmful to society. As a free country, we should ALLOW (not FORCE) civilians, teachers included, to arm themselves for reasons such as this.
Avoter, Mom didn't necessarily try to stop him - she may well have been blindsided. However, I question her judgment in keeping her guns unlocked and accessible to a kid she knew was unstable and had violent tendencies. I realize that having him committed would have been nearly impossible - the ACLU saw to that in the '70s - but not "whacko-proofing" the house was a serious oversight on her part.

I work with soldiers every day. I always find myself humbled by the situations they are put into and manage to get themselves out of. The selflessness you guys display never ceases to amaze me. That “I served so everyone everywhere could be free to live their lives in the manner they see fit” gets me every time. I am way to judgmental for that. I like to think I can be honest with myself.
I don’t have what it takes to be a soldiers. A lot of us don’t. Most of us admit this and that’s why we are always heaping praise on you guys. But, there are always going to be a few of us that are embarrassed by Men and Woman like you.
If your thinking all these people see is that missing limb when they look at you – your wrong. What they are really seeing is how far you would go for them – strangers. You weren’t hustled down that aisle and put in that corner for any other reason then that they are embarrassed by their inability to be half the human being you are.
So in the future when someone one looks away or hustles you off I hope your smile gets a little bigger. Because in that moment they’ve acknowledged who you are and their inability to be you.
I wish you EVERYTHING good. God bless. Thank you.

Just remember to get far enough outside the city to avoid building codes. Make sure you work with someone who knows what they are doing when it comes to building underground – for safety. Check that the properties that surround yours don’t have extensive pipelines near your property line, if they do, build accordingly. Don’t finance anything. And, look for property in places that don’t count underground structures as taxable – crazy, but true – in some counties if they don‘t see it, they don‘t tax it. But, remember you will (almost) never be able to resell a underground home to someone who needs bank financing to purchase it.
December 8, 2012 at 5:08pm
If you merely want to be self sufficient you need to start thinking outside the box. How much land could you really hold if the government was coming after farmers? How much is enough to go unnoticed and still achieve your goal? How are you going to shield your crops from exposure to chemicals in the air and GMO seeds that spread to kill out your crops?
On three acres you can sustain ten adults. If you lay it out properly and have year round yield. You need to go underground literally. That way your crops and animals don’t attract attention and you are for the most part safe from environmental factors. Light tubes – mirrors reflecting sun thru tubes underground have made underground gardens more than possible. Smaller animals can be just as productive, attract less attention and easier to maintain i.e. goats instead of cows.
A small town not to far outside of the city may a better thought than “rural”, more affordable too. You need to look into what they are doing with underground dome housing also. If you and your husband have “do it yourself” capability it is easier than you think. I don’t imagine a 3 acre plot that just has a 10×12 storage building sitting on it (entrance) and a few small animals grazing attracts the attention a 100 acre farm does.

I’m not a fan of either party, but what are you Dems going to do if the US holds together and the next Pres is a Rep? You have been giving this Pres. so much power how are you going to feel when you are on the outside again?
December 6, 2012 at 5:27pm
No one seems to be pointing out water here. Water moves thru the US because we all have a common goal. But, even now we are seeing prices rise and access change. Texas is over huge aquifers, but water is an issue. To all of you talking about not letting Texas leave without the US military stepping in – what does that say about YOU? Pres. Obama has barely held office for four of eight years and your already talking about going after your neighbor with the military. Dems are such bullies.
I'm not a fan of either party, but what are you Dems going to do if the US holds together and the next Pres is a Rep? You have been giving this Pres. so much power how are you going to feel when you are on the outside again?
Well Obama has all but declared himself the first US dictator and many of us want the REPUBLIC back. Screw socialism, communism and the UN.

Sorry to post off topic here. But this is the newest post and about Pelosi so I’m going where the comments are. I have seen several democrats out on the “shows” this weekend saying how the story on Benghazi hasn’t changed and that the CIA did not request help. Also they are saying that other Presidents, like Reagan, had Americans die on their watch and no one called for impeachment. They are using the Marine barrack bombing as a “for instance”. We really need to push back against this Monday. But, if we are all saying the same thing your congressmen and senators will say we are using some “talking point”. Please take a few minutes and refresh yourself on the histories of past attacks so on Monday morning you are loaded for bear when you call the hill. You are calling the hill – Right?
Our side – I’m not even sure if we have one in Washington anymore – doesn’t seem to be able to find the butts with both hands. Never mind make an intelligent argument on the fly. We need to help them out. All of the latest BS from the democrats can be easily answered but everyone needs to do it in THEIR own words. I want to thank you guys, I have loved ones deployed and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for all your efforts on their behalf. – THANK YOU!

Where can I find your posts on how the liberals in big cities take care of our water supply? You do also point out the problems with fluoride – Right? You do know that it was developed by the Nazis for not nice things? How about the sewage that cities like New York – run by liberals dump into the sea? How about all of the proscription drugs found in so called safe water? Did you cheer when Pres. Obama said – at some point you have to stop medical treatment and just take a pill? Are you equal in your assessment of the “truth”? What you are really fighting for is clean water – Right?
