My 21-year-old daughter is a Lone Soldier combat volunteer from the U.S. in the IDF. She is stationed near Gaza. I just returned from two weeks in Israel where I was able to hug her and spend precious time with her for the first time in almost a year. I know I speak for her and her fellow soldiers when I say “Thank You” to Mercury One for its dedication and appreciation for the heroic job these young men and women are performing.
The Nazis had nothing on what environmentalism as a religion has done, and is doing, to fuel the arrogance of those administering the Federal Government. And if you think the analogy is inappropriate or extreme, read this. http://abovethefraypodcast.com/nevada-rancher-nazis/
First, I wonder if that mother also tells her son that the flame on the stove top is a hand warmer?
Secondly, given the abundance of sharks and infrequency of attacks, I’d say sharks are remarkably tolerant and gracious given our human propensity to frolic in their habitat uninvited with a disregard for polluting it.

I couldn’t get past the line in the article that said “the 5 million people who lost their health insurance as a result of Obamacare will get a hardship exemption…” There it is in one sentence. The goal of this shameful President is to make everyone a “hardship” by putting everyone on the government dole in some form or another. Americans have gone from being trail-blazing, independent thinking, charitable individuals to dependent sheep in 6 years. Fundamental transformation? More like mental deterioration. What has happened to us. This President is a bad guy who has repeatedly violated the Constitution. Why are we silent? It is our responsibility now to save the United States. We must take action. We the People. Congress is complicit and therefore useless. I think the Fifth Amendment process of State Constitutional conventions is a viable way to use the very Constitution he ignores to to end run this disaster.

Yes, there are coverups. Yes, some (too many) of the people in our government and the private sector are complicit and duplicitous in these schemes. But honestly, reading some of the posts here is an exercise in crazy.

Does it not occur to you that the God you promote, Jesus Christ, would be appalled at the hate you spew? You spread very bad P.R. for your deity. Oh, and by the way, better sit down before you read this. He was a Jew.

As a survivor of attempted suicide decades ago, I speak inspirationally on depression, bullying and suicide. I can tell you that people who want to give up or who feel helpless have simply misplaced “hope.” Once hope returns, the impossible no longer seems real and empowerment returns. What the response from ChiveOn did for this young woman was to restore hope. If only each of us would reach out to individuals in our own lives who are struggling and reignite their hope. It doesn’t always take a grand gesture. Sometimes its an encouraging word or simply empathy for what another is going through.

The love, courage and determination of a mother. Unstoppable!

I always thought Diane Lane to be an under-used actress. That ends here. Now, she’s just plain being used. I realize its a career decision for her, and perhaps she feels its a great role and opportunity to grow as an actress, but its going to forever ruin for me “Under The Tuscan Sun” and “Must Love Dogs”! Its surreal, like Jane Fonda playing Nancy Reagan. What ARE these people thinking?

Most people choose a spouse based upon unspoken agreements to fulfill each others deficiencies. Never a good way to start a relationship. Few choose out of love and for the right reasons. Therefore, what winds up happening is often some version of what you see in the video. If you look and listen closely, they are both immature and bring their own issues to their combustible relationship. She’s not the only problem here. They each make an equal contribution. Let’s hope that the pain of their experience causes them both to now work on themselves, enabling them to make healthier choices in the future. And let’s hope two divorce lawyers (I am a former on myself) don’t flame the fire between them and turn the divorce of a short-term marriage into another conflagration.

The lack of veracity that can be discerned in Weiner’s mea culpa is this: The ego that propelled him to seek Congressional office, sext nude photos to strange women, lie to his wife and constituents could not possibly have seen the error of its ways when his very next act upon being “cured” is to run for Mayor of the largest city in the United States. Does that sound to you like an ego in check or a man without a shred of humility, not to mention a conscience?

I’m a former Divorce lawyer. I can tell you with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY that while she is out of control…he is a passive/aggressive, manipulating and emotionally abusive husband who likes to push her to the edge so he can appear the “nice, normal, innocent guy.” Shame on ANYONE who judges her out of context.
July 12, 2013 at 9:10am
Succinctly said and well said. Its applies to many judges also. Bad lawyers who move on and bring an “attitude” with them.

Careful, Janet. You paint with a broad brush. While there may be some truth to the statement that Semitic people are passionate and emotional in how they live their lives… “warlike” can hardly be attributed to the Jewish people inhabiting modern day Israel. Defending oneself against aggression and admitted extermination does not qualify as “warlike.” So, while its no stretch at all to describe Islamists (or even most Arab nations) in that manner based upon behavior, lumping Israel into the category is not, hopefully, a reflection of bigotry but rather an indication of of your limited or uninformed world view.

Why isn’t Dr. Ben Carson in your poll? Isn’t he an obvious choice?

If he’s been designated a U.S. Citizen by the Federal government then they better have read him his Miranda warning expeditiously after citing the “Public Safety” exception or some defense lawyer is going to seek to parlay that into a procedural error. This observation from a former lawyer.
@GOLD - Thanks for your professional opinion. It is refreshing after reading so many "out there" conspiracy theories. I look forward to hearing more posts from you as these stories unfold.
Do you know what is supposed to happen next? (I realize that supposed to and what will happen may not necessarily be the same.)
As a matter of principle they should Mirandize, because the public safety excuse is a little thin in this case, but in terms of obtaining a conviction, as long as they have enough physical evidence that they don’t need to rely on a confession, it will make no practical difference.
Carole I read your website an the article was wonderful and I loved it.
I am an empath but I am also Christian. I am entrigued by your writings and insight but
I don't see God in your message. Is there room for him in your teachings or in your opinion are we our own Gods?
Because I am going through alot of discovery right now and I feel the paradeim shift but I have
come to the conclusion that we wont have the complete peace we want until we get to the other side-and I feel that our goal here and now is to learn to be more like Him and walk in the spirit as much as we can. Live by faith not sight. We're in training for the next life and I see it as a catch 22. The more we become like Him, the more ugliness we see in this world and the more pain we feel.
If you're not a believer none of this will make sense.

Okay, let’s clear this up. This isn’t about “PC” and those who are trying to make it about that.
The phrase has been used for centuries to disparage Jews. One of the few occupations Jews were allowed to partake of in Europe during the Middle Ages and forward was money lending. Because we were good at it, successful and tended to value education over much else….Jews have gone on to be disproportionately successful in making significant contributions in the arts, medicine, sciences etc. in every society in which we have lived…not to mention those advances and more that have evolved within Israeli society itself.
So, kindly understand that “Jew me down” has a hateful and bigoted origin and anyone using it needs to reevaluate what is either 1) their own unacknowledged bigotry or 2 ) their lack of education.
