For an American doctor to go into the middle east, and especially if he takes family with him, is actually a member of an organization that should be called, “Doctors Without Brains”.

If you don’t have a concealed handgun license by now, you had better get one immediately. Carrying a gun is going to be the only thing between you and being killed, attacked, and/or raped, or your family members encountering the same, if you don’t have the perfect equalizer on you. Men need to carry a .45. Women might want to lower that to a .40. You can find a gun store that will have rent pistols to try to see which of the two calibers a woman would be able to handle. Stay away from the 9MM pea shooter. It does not have the knockdown power needed. Carry an semi-automatic, preferably a Glock. It is the most reliable pistol you can buy. If you ever have to stop a lowlife coming at you, fire off at least two round into him/her. You will have eliminated the harm meant for you, you will have eliminated future harm to others, you will have eliminated the future harm to that darling child you sometimes see while driving down your street. Except to Obama, Hillary, and all democrats, you will be an American hero!

I don’t like making statements on The Blaze because it doesn’t afford commenters the courtesy of making this page https to protect everyone’s privacy.
I stopped going to Target when I read on a site that they were giving money to sexual pervert causes and organizations. I shop at Lowes and shun Home Depot for the same reason.
Really a bad title for a book, in my opinion. The Lord had nothing to do with politics while upon earth.
Matt 12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
Matt 12:20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
He was here to give the message of salvation in Him and teach concerning righteousness and godly behavior. Dragging His name into the book is inappropriate.
Dr. Bock might also want to heed this verse: Eccl 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
The main book Christians have been given is unfortunately not diligently read and studied, but most people read tons of books and rarely study the scriptures to any degree.
I have lived in Alaska and anyone who lives there should know to always carry at least a .357 magnum when you are in the wilderness. A shotgun is even better. You cannot take chances when around Alaska’s bears and they are everywhere in the bush. Being a college professor, he may have been a pantie waste liberal who was also anti gun. It is fortunate that his foolishness didn’t also cause some students to be mauled or killed. Only fools put themselves in this kind of harms way in Alaska.
Secondly, Haines is not accessible only by air or sea. There is a road that connects Haines to the Alaska Highway. People sometimes take the ferry out of Washington (I think it is) to Haines and then drive up and over to Anchorage and Fairbanks.

We have a tremendous heritage here in Texas and a strong heritage does make a difference in the character of a state’s and country’s citizens. I read that because of the constant flow of illegal aliens communist Obama is allowing to flood into Texas and our nation, that concealed handgun permits are up to over a million in Texas now. This is up from 250,000 just a very few years ago. Texans know that the personal protection of a firearm is the best, if not only, means to put our enemies in fear. This is why the socialist/fascist/Marxist Obama and democrats so desire to take away out guns, first partially and then completely. They hate America and like the Muslims, desire its destruction.

People need to recognize that governments are completely out of control today. Government bureaucrats do not have a soul, no understanding, no compassion. You should see bureaucrats as nothing more than agents of the devil, doing his evil, hateful will. People therefore should not freeze and tarry in fear when the government unjustly comes after them, but make immediate plans to circumvent the attack. In this case, I would have immediately taken off 2 or 3 days, gone to a relative’s house in another state, made a deal to rent a room from them for a dollar a month, and changed out my driver’s license to one from that state. If that state tried to come after me for South Carolina, I would do it all over again in another state. You must take charge of your own life. Governments have become extremely hostile towards American today. They do not care who they destroy.
So your solution to a bad bureaucracy, is to go to another state and take the chance that that state's bureaucracy is any better? He made the right decision about exposing just how bad the bureaucracy can screw up someone's life and making it very public. If we don't attempt to correct an incompetent government agency, then we deserve what we get.

Rubio’s behavior here is truly base and detestable. This kind of immaturity need not be elected to the presidency. Find something genuinely worth arguing.

This was not a case of not following procedure, but a case of not following state law. She should, and probably will, have her class B (and class A if she has the endorsement) license revoked. Most certainly her passenger endorsement. The Texas Dept. of Public Safety will quickly pull a commercial license for such an infraction.

The drafting of women is something that fundamental Christian women, and any non feminist women that might be left in this country, must absolutely resist and refuse to obey. Even if it means to move to a safe haven country. No government has the right to endanger a woman in such a way. They will ALWAYS be raped if captured, no exceptions. This is what happened to Jessica Lynch, the woman Army soldier when she was captured in Iraq. Maybe most women don’t even care about this sort of thing happening to them anymore, having been down with multitudes of men already. But there are still some women who are chaste and they should never allow the government to put them in such a situation. There is always a time for rebellion and this would be one of those times.

I don’t like this bunch of liberal rats either, but I also don’t like people to presume to take privileges with my person. I usually cringe just seeing men shaking hands and giving an additional love bump squeeze. Some of us are too straight for that. There are still a few strong men around.

Does anyone know where she got her Bible college or seminary degree?

Not to worry. The liberals will stop all this anti gun, anti Second Amendment nonsense after they get all guns outlawed.

Ohio has concealed carry, but Ohio is a weak sister state, so no one had a gun on them. Here in Texas and other southern and western states (Pacific states excluded), he would have had deadly bullets thrown at him, not chairs.

I heard that the Texas Department of Public Safety, our State Troopers, are warned in their initial training that some women are attracted to persons in authority and that any officer found messing with a woman other than his wife, will be summarily fired. The TDPS also supposedly gives officers training in how to be a gentleman. I heard this back in the 70s and hope that this is still their practice. Episodes of Dateline have continuously shown other police agencies to be completely lacking in moral discretion.

I moved to a somewhat small city about 5 years ago. I would hear reports on the radio at least once a month that the city had shut down the water in certain areas in order to flush the lines. I used to think that the city water pipes must be old and dirty. One day I was standing in line at a hardware supply and heard a man in the next line over say to someone that the city had shut off his water the day before. The person who he was with said “You know what that is, don’t you? Whenever there is a fire, the fire department back flushes their fire truck tanks into the water system after the fire.” I assumed there was probably some stupid federal law that forbid them from just dumping the water out of their tankers into the street. A few days later, I ran some water for coffee in the morning and noticed that it looked slightly cloudy. I compared it with a jug of water in the frig and could see that there was definitely a difference. I called the water department and they came out and flushed the main line. The manager of my place said that there had been an accident just up the block and the fire department had been out on it. Our town is not contentious, so this practice was never dealt with. I wrote the Texas Water Dept. in Austin about what was going on here. They apparently put a stop to it because I have not heard of a single water line being shut down since. No more corrosion and bacteria from fire truck tanks being back flushed into our water.

The driver didn’t actually cause the near accident as some have said. What happened here is the drop deck flatbed is really a very light trailer. The driver came around a curb to see the traffic ahead and was trying to slow down as a result. Because the trailer is light, the trailer brakes locked up and going around the curb caused it to fishtail. He obviously say what was happening and got off the tractor brake and possibly applied only the trailer brake to allow it to straighten out. This event can easily happen with any light, empty trailer. It can happen with any trailer on wet, snow, or ice.
Anything that causes the tires to break traction will cause this, i’ve seen this at relatively low speed. Anything that causes sudden lateral force on the trailer can do this. Even an unexpected turn of the wheel can.
