    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.

    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.

    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 O!

    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.

    I read your comments three times and I still can’t figure out what you’re trying to say. So Ted Cruz is a hypocrite somehow because other people voted for Obamacare before he was in office? Or because you knew some people who were best buddies with their enemies? How does that give you any special knowledge about Senator Cruz? And you want to eliminate “mandates, rules, and laws”, but don’t support Senators who stand up against specific laws? Your arguments, if that’s what they are, make no sense.

    Ah, you just proved you didn’t listen. He went through the bill and pointed out the most obvious flaws. To read the entire bill, or cover every problem with it, would take well beyond 21 hours. Just ask the Teamsters, who petitioned Obama to block the bill as it stands. Oh wait… they’re not “radical right”, are they?

  • September 25, 2013 at 1:47pm

    Just burn half of it. :D

  • September 25, 2013 at 1:40pm

    cdn – He addressed that during his speech. If Durbin had bothered listening to the whole thing, he would know that. And it’s disingenuous to claim that the entire healthcare system has to be overhauled and run by the IRS in order to get coverage for pre-existing conditions. Reid and his ilk won’t even consider making changes to the bill, despite pushback from his own supporters (even the Teamsters Union) who know that ACA will destroy the work week as we know it.

    I can’t believe some of you are picking on Cruz because he “didn’t do enough” or because it wasn’t a “real” filibuster. Cruz did what he set out to do: drew attention to the cloture vote on Obamacare and put a line in the sand so that the other senators had to either join him or not. Classic libertarian move… tear down anyone who takes a stand because they didn’t stand on everything all at once. That’s why you will be a fringe party for the foreseeable future. It’s easy to claim the moral high ground when you have no one in office to hold to your impossible standards.

  • September 25, 2013 at 1:18pm

    If you listened to the speech, even if you disagree with Senator Cruz, you would know that he was sincere in everything he said. What you call “blabbing talking points for 20 hours” was actually something rare and precious: a politician speaking honestly about legislation he feels will be a danger to the US. No one could speak for 20 hours on ANYTHING and not trip up unless he truly believes what he says. This also explains why Obama can’t order lunch without a teleprompter.

    Agreed. I want to enjoy the B.S. of A, but it’s almost never funny. The skits drag on and on…
