So you’re saying it’s perfectly normal in your average 10-hour day to receive 1:37 minutes of insults and threats? And this isn’t problematic to you? Interesting.

Sorry Rob… can’t get past your grammar to decipher your point.

Mgrizz – perhaps not in an opinion piece, but this is supposed to be a news story. Don’t get me wrong, I love what TheBlaze is supposed to be and I’m a big Glenn Beck fan. I just find the sensationalism and lazy journalistic style of the site to be a turnoff. I can’t direct people here for the truth because it’s so poorly presented. We can do better.
Just remember what you said. When the TV News media reports it weeks, months, or years later.
And by the way. Who said this was a News Story. And who decides what is news and what will be covered. This issue was actually discussed in a barber shop about 3 weeks ago. -- And the reason it was of concern with some of the people. Was having more information. Since their was a lot of sales.
But it is funny. That this was news years ago for security and tech people. Funny how quickly you dismiss it. Because if you sale or recommend products and services. Especially devices as such. And if customers found out you ignored such issues. Or didn't address them, etc. You could have a problem. Or had such device in a location that is suppose to be private or needs special security issues addressed, etc.
Sorry Rob... can't get past your grammar to decipher your point.

Comparisons to 1984 seem a bit out of place considering that any TV is an optional purchase, as is connecting the appliance to the web. Just another example of the hyperbole that hurts TheBlaze’s credibility as a news site.
I don't think they are out of place considering that while it may be an optional purchase, the technology now exists to make that aspect of the novel come true.

Nah -- it's an interesting connection to 1984.
If you want examples of hyperbole in Blaze stories, then you don't have too look further than the headlines. You would be "stunned" . . .

The scariest part of this story is not the suggestion that guns are dangerous. Rather, it’s the message that children should trust their teachers more than their own parents. This is one small part of a massive push to make children the property of the State.
Don't you love where our public education system is going!
i had some decent teachers in school in the 60s to early 70 but i no way trusted them more
When you make children the property of the State, what happens after they grow up? Do they stop being the property of the state? Of course not. The ultimate goal is to make everyone, adult and child alike the property of the State.

I understand the sentiment, but the guy was holding the little girl. Shooting would be dangerous.
What about the next time, I mean after he is rehabilitated at our expense. This is where the real danger is.
Actually if you picture it in your mind, your chasing a man carrying a 5 year old, so he's not going to be very fast, and all your carrying is a pistol. You simply place the barrel to his kidney, or liver and squeeze gently, and allow the pistol to do its job. If your not positive you put the first shot in his ass, when he falls, you simply finish the job then. No sweat...

I think you’re missing the point. For them to play against a grieving and distracted team wouldn’t really be a fair contest. It was probably the best way the kids could think of to show solidarity, and even if it’s not the best solution they’re just high schoolers! It was great of the school staff to support them on carrying this out. Good life lesson on not being all about self.
I would have been pissed if someone gave me a win out of pity. If they weren't up to playing then they should have forfeited.

Miami – I think you’re missing the point of everyone’s concern. It’s not that the pilot contracts the disease while flying the plane, it’s about him getting so close to the patient and hazmat crew in the video. It’s possible the disease could have been transferred to his clothing, etc if he brushed up against them. And even if there was no risk, it’s a stupid visual that could have been avoided.

Kevino545 – I find it interesting that there are people who turn a “be careful what situations you choose to put yourself in” warning into some kind of accusation that rape is a woman’s fault. Obviously that’s not what I meant. My encouragement is for young women to think ahead and protect themselves. There’s an upside to acting like a “lady” and expecting a man to treat you accordingly. Colleges that allow/encourage underage drinking and the “party” culture (and also don’t let a woman carry a weapon) are dangerous places for young girls to be. Do a little research into the date rape numbers over the past 40 years and ask yourself whether you’d really want to put your daughter in that situation. Area of town where people are mugged all the time? Stay out of there at night. Campus party with booze and “girls gone wild”? Don’t be stupid…stay home.

To my fellow women: If you are headed into a situation/party/event where you’re so worried about being raped that you feel the need to paint a drug test on your fingernails…. stay home!!! There’s no good reason for an 18 or 19 year old girl to be out drinking with a bunch of frat boys anyway. Focus on your education and wait for a man that’s interested in more than your bust size.
yes, its up to the girl to make sure she doesnt put herself in a situation where she could get raped! its her responsibility not to get raped!

...or at least don't get drunk with a bunch of guys that you hardly know.
Mothers used to caution their daughters about appropriate and safe feminine behavior. Your comment is right on target - unfortunately, mothers are too busy adding that second income to convey such wisdom.
I need to add to this a little bit. Yes 18 and 19 year old girls should not be out drinking it up with a bunch of frat boys but the drug will also be effective if it was dropped into a coke. I think this is a great invention and should be in every nail polish on the market. These drugs are not just used for rape either ..... people (guys included) get drugged to get robbed too.
My rule of thumb when I used to go to bars/clubs/parties was NEVER EVER set down your drink even if you are right there next to it. Keep it in your hand and there is less of a chance of someone trying to slip anything into it.
This is not a new trick it's been going on for years when I was growing up "roofies" were being used, in my brothers day it was "ludes" even old movies refer to "slipping them a micky"
I was a very successful entrepreneur in my 30s when I was date raped by a married financial advisor from midtown Manhattan. I have met many women that have been drugged and 1 man, none were in college at the time.
I disagree. I am happily married and have been known to go to a bar for a "Ladies Night Out" so to speak with other women. I'm also above the legal drinking age and have 0 interest in hooking up or anything like that. Doesn't mean that someone else might not have the decency to leave me alone if I decline. A few months back a friend of mine (also married) and I were out having a drink and just passing time. She ordered a drink and shortly after started feeling really weird. About the time I started trying to help her out to my car, a guy she had turned down for a dance earlier came up and was trying to convince me to take her to his car and that he knew her, they were friends, blah blah blah. I managed to get the bouncer's attention and let him know what was going on. When I got her outside she started vomiting profusely and I just took her straight home. It was only one drink.
The problem is that the situations where a woman can be raped exist. If the answer is simply avoiding all places/situations where a rape may occur, that would mean avoiding everywhere. Whether a girl was promiscuous or not is immaterial - the fact that we live in a culture where a guy can be so desperate for sexual satisfaction that he's willing to drug someone to attain that satisfaction is the problem. I don't care if the girl is dressed in short shorts with her bust literally busting out of her top. It doesn't matter. Common decency should reign. It's the parents the individuals fault for being so warped; it's the parents fault for not teaching their son the difference between right and wrong; and it's society's fault for perpetuating a society that values sexual gratification over common decency .
Do you look both ways before crossing the street or do you avoid crossing streets? I do not believe in CCW when drinking but the designated driver can carry with my blessing.

Breaking News: Sometimes it snows.
Weather is cyclical. It shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone that there are still mild winters and hard winters. Humankind has survived both for a rather long time. I think the panic is the result of our instant-news culture, where people accept and absorb what starts out as a big headline for ratings. Keep calm and use a little common sense, people.

It’s ironic that those of us discussing “electronics addiction” are the ones that spend enough time on the computer to read comments on an almost-news story. :)

As SCOTUS has reversed itself on multiple occasions, that makes no sense.

I don’t know… we already hand our ID to every sales clerk to verify use of our credit cards. And that’s WITHOUT covering up the license number/passport number. Why is this different? I’m not a fan of government intrusion, but am not as shocked by this as some seem to be. Facebook isn’t a human right. :)
I've only had to show a clerk an ID once in the last twenty years, and I didn't allow it to be scanned. BTW, it was for a return, not a purchase.
You might feel differently when you understand just who these people are and what their agenda is:
THE MOST IMPORTANT MOVIE ON AMERICA. PERIOD!
AGENDA: GRINDING AMERICA DOWN is much, much more then you think!
EVERY PATRIOT needs to see this atleast once and share with everyone in their sphere of influence!
For those who are familiar with how important AGENDA:GRINDING AMERICA DOWN is - critical that everyone who wants to restore the Republic must see:
that still posts on FB - Here is a link to a custom, extended trailer on the movie my sister did:
It will embed properly in FB and open and play in FB and has a link to the FULL length movie at the end. Please use it, post it on your pages, use with comments, Tweet it:

Come on McCain… time to admit that you’ve been a Democrat in word and action for years. Leave the party and stop pretending you have anything in common with a real conservative. I think you’ll be happier, and I know I will.

You seem to be missing the point of Cruz’s speech. He never claimed that his speech alone would stop or overturn Obamacare. He was trying to draw attention to the need to do so, and hopefully influence the cloture vote on Friday. I think he did both very successfully. I understand frustration, but I think you’re taking it out on the wrong person. I am not convinced by your arguments that Cruz is not sincere.

800,000 views by the end, just on the Blaze. I’d say that’s more than “no one”.

Reagan was older than Hillary and defeated the USSR. I don’t care how old (or hip) Hillary is, but I DO care that her policies would be disastrous.
