    Do you worry that your brain surgeon is drunk?

    Then alcohol should be illegal as well. It serves is a public menace and helps no one. Is drug use bad? Of course it is, especially when it is abused. But abusing anything is bad. I personally think all drugs should be legal. Drugs use should be treated as a public health issue, not a criminal justice issue. There are millions of drug addicts who desperately need help. The problem with drug prohibition is that these people who need help can’t always get it without fear of being imprisoned. Do we treat alcoholics as criminals? Not until they commit a crime. If we treated other addicts the same way we treat alcoholics, it would better for everybody. I think we would have better luck helping these people solve their problems if we didn’t threaten them with incarceration. These addicts don’t get better in prison. They got lumped in with murderers and rapists and instead of getting help, they gain more contacts in the criminal world. Throwing people who need help in prison only enriches the prison system, and puts a burden on the welfare state.

    Too bad most people don’t have that option. Taxes are automatically deducted from my paycheck. I have no way of refusing to pay them, and must file taxes to get back the money I overpaid.
    If we want things to change, we must demand that the IRS stops auto deducting money, and that everybody must file their taxes at the end of the year. When Americans start writing checks to the government(or realize they didn’t budget properly and can’t afford their tax bill), then things will change. For now, most people have no idea how much they are really paying, and are instead thrilled to be getting a refund.

    Or we could bring our troops home from the Middle East and use them to secure our border instead.

    I completely agree with his stance. If we want marriage to involve certain legal benefits, such as tax breaks, shared insurance and visitation rights, then it should be open to any two individuals who seek those benefits. If I can marry a woman only to gain benefits, then why can’t two men or women who actually love each other be afforded those same benefits?

    We are a country of cowards. It is a shame that more people don’t stand up for freedom of speech in this country. We are all entitled to our views, and those views should have no impact on your job, especially when those views are expressed outside of the workplace. We need to stand up to those who wish to censor us by trying to ruin our livelihood. While I support gay marriage and have yet to see a non-religious reason why it should be banned, does not mean that I want anybody who is against gay marriage to lose their job. You can have whatever views you want, and we probably will never see eye-to-eye on some issues. But that is what makes America great, the ability to voice a dissenting or unpopular opinion. Unfortunately, the left wants to do away with the first amendment, and since they can’t use the government to quash differing opinions they want to ruin your life, so that people are afraid to speak out. The scary thing is that their tactics are working.

    But we MUST protect the children. Bandaids hurt when ripped off. And adults hugging kids is inappropriate!

    Did the cop say the carjacker had a meth pipe in his pocket?

    Don’t sitting members of Congress outrank any person at these facilities? If a member of Congress wants to show up unannounced, who has the legal authority to deny them access? Members of Congress who actually care about this issue should show up, whenever they please and demand access. If they are refused, they should go in anyway, and have anybody who stops them detained.

    Another situation that could have been solved if NYC allowed citizens to be armed. Had this been in Texas or any other gun friendly state, the guy who threw the punch would either be dead, or in jail after being held at gunpoint until police arrived.

    “I don’t know anyone else that had a fender-bender in the fast food line at Taco Bell”
    It wasn’t Taco Bell, but I rolled into a guy a McDonalds in Brooklyn once going around the curve. When the guy got out of his car my friends thought we were going to get shot. I told him, I was going half a mile an hour and there was no damage because that is what bumpers are for. He looked at the back of his SUV, nodded his head and got back into his car.

    I get your point, but why should somebody have to get a license to run a business in the first place? I believe people should be free to earn a living without getting permission from the government to do so.

    Kids are such babies these days. She was crying because she was told to go home and change? How is being sent home to change so earth shattering that an adult(or almost a legal adult) has to call her mother crying because the school said her dress was too short? Kids these days are soft.

    That doesn’t sound Constitutional to me. Somebody needs to challenge that ‘law’. Gun ownership should not be at the whim of a police officer, or a bureaucrat.

    What legal power gives police the ability to confiscate legally owned weapons without being charged, or convicted of a crime? I guess innocent until proven guilty doesn’t matter to the gun grabbing crowd.

    You, and your fellow students have a lot of growing up to do(as do the adults in your community). If hearing somebody speak about God, during a 5 minute speech causes you issues, you will never be successful in the real world. Part of living is experiencing things that make you uncomfortable and learning to deal with it. This attitude of wanting to be sheltered from anything you disagree with is bad. The attitude that you must use the government and costly litigation(which these things usually result in) to shelter you is even worse.

    Too bad we don’t have a commander and chief with a spine. If I were in charge, I would be assembling a special forces team right now to go in and burn the cartels to the ground. We have the manpower and military capability to turn their hideouts to ash with drones and send in special forces to clean up the rest.

    Of course these guys are going to lie and spin the truth on these TV shows. Anybody with half a brain should know that. I blame the media for refusing to call them out when it happens. Instead of doing their jobs, they just take what is being said at face value. Every now and then they will push back but usually, in the end they will concede the point because they don’t care about facts and the truth. They care about ratings.

    Only on the Blaze is some drunk morons ramblings considered national news.

    Fans have the right to stop financially supporting the team and advertisers have the right to cancel contracts. Now that his views are public, do you think any superstar players will want to play for him? I read a report that he was the reason Lebron James signed with Miami over the Clippers If he is still the owner do you think Doc Rivers will continue to coach his team next season?
    From the NBA standpoint, what do you do? Nobody wants to work for him, fans don’t want to show up at the arena, and sponsors don’t want to be affiliated with the team.
