I'm impressed BOWHUNTINGTEXAS. You're sure right on target with your comment. Let us all please remember you CANNOT shoot or knife someone over any property. If their armed that's a different story. Yet, you can pistol whip once up-side the head to disable them. Then it's 911.
I especially appreciated your comment stating, "If I catch someone messing with it, the outcome will not be pleasant – for them or, possibly, me." Outcomes are in the hands of God. Something I think we all should remember. Heroes are for comic books and movies. Thanks for your input. :-)

Nothing that you own is worth going to prison over. You make talk tough now , but if you screw up and hurt somebody without a real good reason , you will seriously regret it while you are in prison. Just a bunch of talk.

The Castle Doctrine, the state of Texas, after dark, a concealed handgun license and a Ruger .357 are a little more than tough talk.
@BowHuntingTexas - I couldn't have said it better. The new Castle is a beautiful thing allowing a man to defend his own or his neighbors property the way it should be. Simply, if you don't want to get beat down or loose your life, don't mess with a Texans property. Maybe if the rest of the country would stand up for their rights there would be less of this.
Yes and it is gross!!! :P I see it all the time around here in our part of TX. The boys and men who wear the skinny jeans...look like they are gay/cross dressers. And at least I can't tell if they are men/boys or women/girls. I am always asking my hubby what they are. Real men don't wear skinny jeans. The world seems to be wanting to turn everyone gender neutral. That is so not okay.

Another good one is “The Road” by the brothers, don’t recall their name, who did “No Country for Old Men”.
I fired the 50 beowulf a few weeks ago no spray and pray about it , snap the upper right to your ars' lower , and let the fun begin , just like shooting a standard ar , with a lot more kick
I understand that the AR platform chambered for .50 Beowulf is not a long distance cartridge, but is very effective for disabling soft targets at shorter ranges (i.e. road block situation where an engine block hit will stop a car).

FTA – “Johnson’s boss referred her to Macy’s LGBT policy which allows “transgender” people to change in any dressing room they want.”
So, who’s getting special treatment and additional rights here?
And yet trans people are assaulted and harassed all the time for using the bathroom or dressing room they feel they should be able to use.
If I don't pretend to be a horse I won't get stomped in the stable.
I can paint my house white, but that dont make it the White House. born a man... hormones and surgery cannot change God's will.
There is no God.
poor poor Discord! There absolutely is a God! ... have faith; believe and here you may find peace and balance. may no person force their faith/beliefs on you Discord, and may no person force their sexual delusion on the rest of us that are content to live within society's norms
I believed once. I almost committed suicide.
Racial segregation used to be a societal norm. Would you be comfortable if it still was?
racial discrimination was absolutely wrong, just as privacy based on genetic gender is absolutely right. if you once had an outie, you have no business dressing with the rest of the innie's
It is discrimination and it is wrong.
Discord. If you're not serious about almost committing suicide, then you're more perverse than I thought. If you did almost commit suicide, your argument is weak. I had a friend who almost went through a sex change operation, but instead committed suicide. Suicide stretches across all areas of society, but I'd be willing to guess that there are less religious suicides than non-religious ones (excluding radical Islamist terrorists, of course). Oh, come to think of it, they're different too. I bet there's a place in your heart for those wacky Islamo-Nazis, huh?
I am completely serious.
Anyway, I am happier without religion than I ever was with.
I used to be very focused on the idea of hell; now I enjoy the beauty and complexity of nature with a light heart and a lot of optimism.
"I almost committed suicide." You must have a very poor understanding of Christianity if you think that suicide gets you to Heaven.
I didn't, but I wanted to end my obsessive thoughts.
I'm seriously glad that you're happy. That's a good thing. Let me ask you Discord. If you had the choice to have a Heaven after life, would you want it? If not, why not?
Assuming it made any sense for an afterlife to exist to begin with, I'd be interested in heaven only if heaven would be what I wanted it to be, but nothing I've heard sounds terribly appealing. Boring, really.
THIS BELONGS HERE...
And that is why you fail, Discord. You’re selfish. You’re on here saying the same thing to those who want their reality the way THEY would have it…..but they’re somehow wrong. Yet you’re not, concerning heaven…..interesting ;)

Hadn’t thought about his definition of “shame” the way he defines it.
Envy? Pretty simple – you have more stuff than me and I want what you have.
I’d always figured we were going down the path of no shame at all (I’ve heard that Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have some videos that can be found on line with a simple google search).
How he’s defining shame here (or, as I understand him) is something I’d never considered.
“I’m an Occupier and I’m ashamed I wracked up $50,000 in debt to get a masters degree in Urban Anthropology and don’t get a trophy for just showing up at a $150,000 job – when I want to. Why can’t I get work anywhere other than Burger King? If that?”
And the envy side?
“Hell, if I can’t have the job (and trophy) I deserve, I’ll just take or destroy what you have succeeded at getting.”
I'm not sure which is sadder, the fact that it took Adam Carolla to make you reflect on an important life concept, or that the only outlet you have to discuss that revelation is The Blaze comment section. Either way, though, it's funny stuff!
Nice commentary, Broker. I think you have just perfectly demonstrated the definition of "troll".
There's nothing wrong with gaining insight from examining honest, astute commentary, regardless of the source.
What does seem sad and almost amusing, though, is seeing someone's apparent need to continually mock thoughtful commentary and label as "losers" those who expose obvious hypocrisy -- while ignoring, excusing or marginalizing idiotic, ugly behavior.
At least Tokyo Rose interspersed some entertainment with the disinformation.
Not sure which is sadder? I find you (broker) to be the sad condition. You refuse to wake up to the reality that he was talking about you and your pathetic life. Going off on someone that is waking up to a reality like that is a moment to rejoice, not tear them down because they are no longer blinded by spoon fed propaganda from the dark side, like you.
Broker, are you ever going to contribute anything positive to any discussion? What kind of anger and sadness drive you like this all the time?
Broker are u 12 ?
Adam Carolla didn't introduce US to these concepts--we've been discussing them ad nauseum on this site and elsewhere. Rather we are THRILLED that a more "mainstream" person gets it and is talking TRUTH along with GBTV!
Get a life!
Ok broker, you just made a comment about yourself, you post here too fella. See how blind you are? Your generalizations bore me. yawn. Hypocrite/spoiled brat is what you are...soon enough you mockers will no longer be laughing...soon enogh! Your kind will be hungry on the streets, wailing and gnashing teeth for your next meal...suck on eggs!
Broker, you're one of the minority here that has some depth of intellect. Do you think it's time in our nation for us all to stop demonizing people who don't share our political viewpoint? I believe that Glenn Beck is helping to tear our nation apart, along with Al Sharpton, Ann Coulter, Ed Shultz, Keith Olbermann and all the other pundits out there who call the opposition EVIL like Beck has been doing so consistently, especially lately. Is it too late for us as a nation to change course and stop this destructive mind set?
I always give leftist courtesy and respect until they start sneering and calling names, and I never start the confrontation first. Your words apply first to Broker, then to the rest of us. His kind is legion, and I cannot recall a single conversation I've had in real life with a leftist that did not quickly turn to them throwing out ad hominem at me when I was being polite.
Physician, heal they own wounds.
they = thy. :)
And where do you get the "depth of intellect" thing from? There are leftists here with depth of intellect, but because they express actual thought. All broker does, is hurl ad hominem. That is not a sign of intellect, sorry, you were taught wrong if you think it is.
Ghost of...Broker's posts are literate and articulate usually and he gets my respect for that. He also can see through Beck's act and that is a sign of intelligence as well. As a long time conservative/libertarian, I am disgusted with people like Beck and Coulter who use my cause as a platform to enrich themselves financially by creating a persona that is a caricature of a conservative and then lay on the acrimony and negativity for show in order to whip people's emotions up and get ratings and attention. They both do it and so do people on the other side and I've had enough of their brand of BS. I can understand people becoming frustrated like Broker and Carolla and myself even, but we Americans, ALL of us, need to put down the pitchforks and the tar and feathers and start having some civil discourse. When I was young, people in politics could disagree but at the end of the day, they were still cordial if not friends. They could have a beer together and put their differences aside. Beck can't and he won't. Instead he has hissy fits and calls others evil and claims that they stand with Satan and dark forces etc. He's nuts frankly and we all need to start recognizing people like Beck, Sharpton etc and turn our backs on them. They don't deserve our attention. I for one am planning to start a grassroots movement to out these negative selfish types and promote healing and civility in this country. If you and anyone else here wants to get on board you're welcom
You call yourself a libertarian and then rant about asserting controls on the national conversation??
THAT MAKES YOU A FRAUD!!! Drop the intellect and try some common sense.
DOWNTHEWELL re: Posted on December 1, 2011 at 12:45pm
In the spirit of camaraderie and civility...
YOU, sir, or madam, are a pompous A$$.
It is clearly obvious that you have absolutely NO IDEA what is truly going on in this country, and the world at large, if you truly believe the drivel you have spouted here.
Time to wake up, sir/madam... there is NO room for phony civility when the political apparatus, along with their masters, are destroying our very way of life. And as for healing? THAT, sir/madam, can ONLY take place when they and their ilk are totally gone from the face of the earth.
Talkingmonkey, you are aptly named but completely wrong. You can't kill people because you disagree with them politically in a sane society and that seems to be what you are advocating. You are an excellent example of the kind of damage Beck has done; all riled up and not thinking, just reacting like an animal.
DOWNTHEWELL re: Posted on December 1, 2011 at 4:30pm
Dream on, sleeper. ;-)
LOL The Blaze Ruskies are preventing me from responding to you AmericanPat. Isn't that special?
Does your call for civility include not hacking someones username and avatar?
@ Down, I see why you feel that way but I have to disagree with you. When it comes to Glenn, you have to retract your statement about saying that he does it for ratings and money. Just look at what he has done in the last year. Quit Fox. Put on Restoring Courage (without the fund raising he did for Restoring Honor), started his own internet network (which is top of the line and very expensive) without knowing if anyone would watch, started and expanded the Blaze. All of this MIGHT make him a richer man than he would of been if he had just stayed at FOX, but it is a heck of a gamble that could ruin him.
Now, if money is not his goal, then he must believe it. You say he is tearing this country apart with his "evil" talk, and if he is doing it for money then I agree, but what if he is right? Some, including myself, believe that he is. Would it not be a greater sin to not say what you believe regardless of how it sounds if your saying it could institute real change or should he just lie to us? I ask, if he does believe what he says and decided to take the safe road for money instead of doing what he is doing now, would that not be evil?
You really should be ashamed for racking up 50,000 dollars on a very useless degree in that, instead of going to school and getting a degree in a trade of some sort that is actually useful to you and others, but no you go and get a worthless degree and your head filled with all the stupid and idiotic things like "Ya you are going to make six figures with this degree" and "you are such a special person that you deserve to be pampered" and so on and so forth! But the plain cold hard facts are that you deserve nothing if you are not willing to do all the hard work, blood, sweat and tears it takes for you to succeed in the real world and to earn what you make of yourself not a worthless degree!! But this will probably just go over your head, and return to your little occupy worthless bulls##t life and wine and complain about the people that have and are still working their hands to the bone to make something of themselves and their families! You sir or mam need your ass kicked back into reality! I truly do hope you come to your senses and make something of yourself
From my point of view, people aren't evil, ideas and actions are. And I would rather someone call evil ideas and actions evil when they see them as such than try to please everbody and not rock the proverbial boat.
You heard what I said and you either are smart enough to understand it or you can wallow in the poisonous negativity Beck is selling. The time for acrimony, anger and hate has passed. Get on board and move forward or remain in the quagmire and be a part of the problem.
DOWNTHEWELL re: Posted on December 1, 2011 at 9:21pm
YOU, sir/madam, are mistaken... if anything, Glenn Beck is far TOO tame in what he is advocating... for what he is advocating is very similar to what YOU, yourself, seem to be saying.
It IS, sir/madam, more highly intelligent to recognize the truth of things. It is NOT acrimonious, hateful or angry to recognize that there ARE forces at work in this world that you, sir/madam, apparently know NOTHING about.
When the political apparatus regards the common, decent, every day American citizenry as the enemy... when the political apparatus supports all manner of trouble making communists, leftists, Islamists, OWSers AND many others who would tear down our western way of life, however temporary their alliance may be... when THAT side has given the ultimatum... it IS, US or THEM. Period.
Just how intelligent can it be to carry on in the same old standard way that got us INTO this state of affairs in the first place? The other side simply does NOT play by the same rules that you, as well as most of us who wish to preserve our Constitution and way of life, would prefer.
Freedom loving Constitutionalists vs. the new world order "global machine"... there is just NO nice way to resolve this... as you WILL find out one day... maybe sooner rather than later.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results ~ Albert Einstein, German-born U.S. physicist (1879 - 1955)
Talkingmonkey, you deserve credit at least for stating your position clearly and it's obvious that you believe the threats that Beck exaggerates are imminent and real. The problem is, experts in the field of geopolitics and pundits like George Will, (and even Rush Limbaugh) don't agree with Beck's apocalyptic outlook. In fact, Beck is rightfully viewed as an unsophisticated, under educated alarmist who lacks the ability to draw rational, intelligent conclusions about where we are now and where we're going in the future. At any rate, no matter what one's world views are, discussing our varying perspectives without demonizing our fellow Americans is a more productive way to move ahead and unite our nation. Don't you get it? These show biz blowhards like Sharpton, Beck, Coulter etc. are playing a game with the public to enrich themselves. They make extreme and inflammatory statements to whip up the emotions of the public in hopes of getting ratings and media attention. It's what they do to make big money. Don't fall for their nonsense. It's just like getting angry when your favorite pro wrestler gets beat up by his opponent. It's all for show. It's high time for we the people to take a deep breath and step away from their silly circus.
Komponist, one definition of evil is "Characterized by anger or spite; malicious: an evil temper." By that definition, Glenn Beck himself is guilty of being evil every day on the national airwaves. Even when he's not fear mongering, he can't control his mean nature. Last summer for example, he devoted a lengthy segment of his radio show to mocking and deriding an unfortunate woman who he never met for her mere appearance. Beck did this to shore up his "us against them" narrative. Anyone who doesn't look like a Mormon missionary is suspect and fair game for public ridicule and mockery in Glenn Beck's book. He still owes her an apology too and judging by the comments and views of this image I created, nearly 4000 people agree.
You have about 3800 views of your childish artwork because you keep spamming the internet with the link to it. There are only 9 comments posted for it.
But I guess you're right......... 9 PEOPLE CAN"T BE WRONG
Actually, upon further examination, it appears that 6 of the comments are from you yourself, and 2 of them are not flattery at all.
So what are you crowing about?
DOWNTHEWELL: All of this lovely erudition and enlightened discourse belies two simple facts: One is that you merely use a lot of unnecessary flourish to say simply that you dislike Beck, his message, the fact that he is successful, (never mind the tremendous risks he takes financially and in opposing the powers that be like George Soros and the American Left) and that he has a large, growing and fiercely loyal following. Yeah, we get it.
The other is that you have a pry bar in your hand called “don’t fall for their nonsense, let’s be all productive, together and non-demonizing” with which you desire to pry as many people as possible away from these beloved populist prophets whom you detest because they’re just so pedestrian and it offends your haughty perspective. What a waste of a good education... Yeah, we get that too.
The problem is that you misrepresent yourself. You are not trying to have an enlightened discourse benefiting all. You have an ax to grind and everyone knows it and can see it. So, your efforts are really very futile and pathetic- objectively speaking of course... :)
So, maybe just cut the crap? Me thinks you’re an evil Liberal in Libertarian cloth... and a Troll.

Well, they’re bringing back horse slaughtering for human consumption to the US.
And, believe it or not, that’s a good thing. There’s a lot of meat on horses. Maybe poor kids in schools here who are now getting 3 meals a day at school can get some? Or, feed it to zoo animals?
A bolt through the head and slaughter here is much better than the way Mexico slaughters our unwanted, old and crippled horses we ship there and can’t slaughter ourselves (due to do-gooder regulations).
In Mexico horse slaughter involves a lot of knife play, chains and pulleys and skinning and gutting while the horse is still alive.
Plus, horse meat tastes a bit like venison.

Hey lady. You know Herman Cain? How long? 13 years?

Sounds like the title company or homeowner selling the house could be sued for fraud if the Russel’s homeowner’s contract specifically stated that they were NOT subject to a home owner’s association.
