I’ve got 3 children and have never asked or even suggested that anyone get them anything for their birthday.
Teach you children to give gifts on their birthday and for Christmas. You will be glad when they are grown and are kind and giving human beings rather than self-centered jerks who want everyone to do for them.

And when an uninformed electorate elects communist thugs?????

This is how the “Death Panels” get started …
This story is sad on so many levels.

Still though, this is just wrong … “you were sent the notice by mistake … you can keep the flag in place as long as you wish” …
You see what just happened, THEY ended up giving HIM permission to continue to fly his flag.
In other words, “The letter was just our way of letting you know that you can fly your flag as long as we give you permission”.
HOA’s are the absolute worst!

@Since.I.Gave.Up.Hope.I.Feel.A.Lot.Better – These guys use the same tactics that the left and the Saul Alinsky types use.
“There is going to be a worldwide economic crash by Friday if we don’t act now”
“Man-made global warming is going to completely destroy the earth in 20 years” (Ted Danson circa 1990-ish)
It is the same fear mongering that Al Gore uses to push his agenda.
Cruz would be a mighty fine President, but IMO Paul makes a better one.
 April 7, 2015 at 10:36am
I like Cruz and would be happy to vote for him, but I really like Rand Paul and would be ecstatic to vote for him (at least at the moment).
Please don’t pay to much attention to the folks who are saying things like:
“My favorite candidate is the ONLY candidate that can bring this nation back …”
“My favorite candidate is a TRUE patriot…”
“Your candidate panders to the left …. ”
The truth is that there are several really good conservatives running this year. Be excited about your candidate, but in the end lets make sure that one of the conservative candidates gets the nomination over the RINO’s.
In comparison to Obama or Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton
Cruz = Awesome
Paul = Awesome
Walker = Awesome
even Rubio would be far better than what the GOP elites are gonna offer up.
Please don't pay too much attention to the folks who tell you who not to pay attention to!
Rand is that rino. You speak of.
Rand is for illegals
Rand is for NO ID went voting . So leftys can vote many times.
Rand panders to the blacks

@JRook – She is 20 years old and has 6 professional wins including a Major championship.
Doesn’t make it right but she is a very good golfer.

@mcsledge – You are very correct. Nowhere do the Scriptures forbid a Christian from making a cake for ANYONE. The problem arises when a baker is forced to decorate it in a fashion that violates their faith or to cater an event that violates their beliefs.
I don’t think (I could be wrong) anyone is say that they want to exclude ANYONE who is gay from entering their store.
 April 2, 2015 at 3:30pm
@viirix – Again, your ignorance is on display for all the world to see. Your extremely biased view of the Scriptures and Christians in general make you come across as a bigot and hater.
 April 2, 2015 at 3:26pm
@viirix – All of the things you mentioned are either Civil or Ceremonial laws and not Moral laws. The Civil and Ceremonial laws were “nailed to the cross” with the “handwriting of ordinances”. (Colossians 2)
While it is apparent that you have knowledge of part of the Scriptures (I’m guessing parts that someone told you) it is also obvious that you are completely ignorant of the Scriptures as a whole and what all the ceremonial laws represented and were a foreshadow of.
It is true that many “christians” do “cherry pick” which portions of the Scriptures they want to obey, but not in this instance.
Your ignorance is forgiven as I am sure you were just repeating what someone else told you.
 April 2, 2015 at 3:17pm
@FiiineTapestry – I will be happy to bake you a cake, your adopted child a cake, your “partner” a cake. It will be my pleasure to serve you. However, I can not make you a “wedding” cake because that would cause me to violate my conscious go against my religious beliefs.
 April 2, 2015 at 3:09pm
@nolefan2 – It is a slippery slope isn’t it … Having been pastor of several small Baptist churches for the last twenty years I am very selective of the weddings that I will perform. Church members only and then only church members who are faithful and have gone through a series of counseling sessions.
Rough waters lay ahead for those whose policy to marry anyone.

Business’ discriminate against people who do not have money to pay for the service.
Business’ discriminate against people are rude and disturb the peace.
Male clothing stores discriminate against women by not selling ladies clothes.
Victoria’s Secret discriminates against men by not selling mens underwear.
on and on we could go …
We are not talking about companies having the right to discriminate against people but rather do they still have the right to exercise their faith.
We have messed around and raised a generation of cry babies who cry for a lawyer every time someone doesn’t cater to their every whim.
Anybody can walk into any store and buy whatever they are selling. (Buy not steal.) Tha's what it means to not discriminate. Now, if you go to your local Victoria's Secret and want to pick up a nice little lavender thong, it is illegal for them to refuse you service because you are a man who just happens to like the feel of a little btt floss. And the exercise of rights, religious or not, ends when it impinges on the rights of others. You have the right to shoot a gun, but you don't have the right to shoot it in my front yard.
Most ridiculous post of the week - so far.
So a company that makes only jock straps
is discriminating against women.
And Maidenform and Playtex discriminate against men.
Ya know, I really try hard, with the name calling accusations
but, but - MORON!
The last time I checked a woman CAN purchase men's clothing... and men CAN purchase women's lingerie. It's not discriminatory to NOT carry items for sale. You cannot FORCE someone to sell something they do not normally carry... but you CANNOT refuse to sell anything you normally do to anyone who wishes to purchase.
tmarends, yet you are proposing exactly that: that business sell things they normally do not sell.
If a baker sells heterosexual cake toppers but not gay cake toppers, are you not requesting that they be mandated to sell gay ones also? Yet a meat shop that sells beef roasts is okay for not selling pork roasts, in your opinion.
Of if someone does Christian art, will they be required to do homo-erotic art as well?
Where does the line become clear?
I have money to pay for your services
I will not be rude or disturb the peace
I ony want the same cake you prepared for the couple in front of me and the couple behind me …I don’t want to know about your Victoria Secret panty fetish
So why do you still stubbornly refuse to serve me?
Is it because you think I’m unworthy of equal treatment, all because of my( none of your business,) choice of a lover?
I don’t care who you chose, why should you care about mine?

Speaking out against the war is one thing, but trying to undermine the effort by insulting our soldiers and lying about military actions and even fabricating stories that enhance your agenda is another thing.
Speaking out against “raping the environment” is one thing, but using totally fabricated “evidence” and then forcing others to adhere to ridiculous laws based on said fabricated evidence is criminal.
Speaking out against “discrimination against gays” is one thing, but taking the freedom away of people to practice their religion and force them to support things against their conscious is another.
Speaking out against “illegal banking practices that tank the global economy” is one thing, staling from person ‘A’ and giving it to person ‘B’ in the name of “redistribution” is something else.
 March 31, 2015 at 1:39pm
What do you bet that the new “rules” will prohibit “hate” speech in lessons and sermons … things like:
- Marriage should be between a man and a woman
- Jesus is the only way of salvation
- Adultry, fornication, drunkeness, gluttony etc … are sin
So this is a story about something that hasn’t happened … just a parody on SNL ….
I keep coming back here with a shred of hope that The Blaze will return to some form of integrity only to be let down, time after time.
The Blaze is now completely off of my recommendation list. It is lower than TMZ and Mother Jones.
So I have to ask, where are all the conservatives hanging out nowadays? Breitbart? …
Breitbart isn't bad, and current. It moves with the speed of the news, it doesn't lag behind. Ditto with lots of other news sites. I think what we have here, is a site with few to no reporters; instead there are "curators" who peruse the web for news, and they have a lot of independent sway as to what passes for news. I think they're trying hard not to be like other sites.
To me, it's more like a lodge, where a host will post an article on a peg board, and the entire club gets to discuss it, as opposed to a newsstand, where you just walk up, get it, and go.

#1 – Hillary is not going to be the Democrat nominee …
#2 – I will take Cruz or Paul over anyone else in the field and if either of these two emerges as the frontrunner and gets the nomination then I will support them completely.
#3 – We conservatives have complained for years that we keep getting RINO’s as our nominee, well, neither of these two are what we would call RINO’s and the fact that either of them might have agreed with a RINO on occasion does not make them a RINO.
#4 – To call Cruz a “Patriot” and imply that Paul is not is ridiculous because a good argument could be made that Paul has done more to protect personal liberty than anyone else on the list. That is patriotic if you ask me.
#5 – Rush is correct in explaining that Republican voters tend to be single issue voters and that ends up hurting us more than helping us. We will not vote for someone who may be a little weak on the 2nd Amendment even though they are really strong on the 4th Amendment or vice/versa.
I agree that we should ignore the RINO’s but neither of these guys are that. I am just glad that FINALLY, we have some good choices.
yeah yeah, I read it, but that statement just stood out like, "What the.....??"
I’ll take life accomplishments and experience over a lifetime of Congressional roll call any day! It’s those people who have gotten us into the mess we’re currently in! Obama was a first term Senator sporting a life experience of Affirmative action. And little else.
Congressional term limits in 2016!
What is truly interesting is that even though I despise his policies, if I am honest, I must admit that Obama has accomplished almost everything he set out to do which means that unfortunately he was very "good" just in a bad way. To reference Cruz's speech - imagine an idealistic, energetic, young president with conservative principles who could accomplish as much for good as this one did for bad. I think K may have made the best possible point in Cruz's favor without realizing it.
Excellent point Japster!!

May sound strange to some but I have heard for 30 or more years that the Nazis had a secret hideaway in Argentina …
One of my customers was a spy during WW2 and he delivered Hitler to Eisenhower at the end of the war. He paid his way to Argentina with Nazi gold and treasure. They set up the South American country's so they had a place to retire if they lost. Hitler died an old man in Argentina.
It's proven fact that Herman Goering, using an alias, had a smaller copy of his Bavarian getaway, known as Karinhall, built on one of the lakes along the Argentina/Paraguay Border before WW-II. The Architect gave investigators a copy of the blueprints and contract documents in 1947, while everybody and his uncle (Including one of mine) was searching for missing Nazis. No big secret.
W.E.B. Griffin even worked it into a couple of his novels.
I don't know if this is the same structure or something else.
