    I was told that they threw a “really expensive wedding” and had the right to expect something from the attendees to help cover the cost.

    Ugh. It’s in such poor taste to spend that much time and effort trying to control gift giving. Takes all the fun out of it! I attended a wedding last year and accidentally left the card/gift at home. I mailed it to the couple the next day, but was floored to receive a message from the groom – on his honeymoon! – asking why no gift was left by my family. The world has gone mad.

    Hmm.. I thought it had to be an April Fool’s joke at first, but apparently this is an actual condition called “giant hairy nevus.” As it has a high percentage chance of turning cancerous, I hope she reconsiders her decision to keep it. I have 3 family members that have faced melanoma, and the surgery she would have to endure with a cancer diagnosis would likely be much worse. Not to mention life-threatening.

    Well done on the child-rearing, Billy Ray. She’s a real charmer.

    Not.

    Verycobaltviolet – You are willfully choosing to avoid a discussion about the content of what I said. Instead, you choose to call me a liar and claim that I don’t believe what I say I believe. I can only deduce that you are not confident enough in your side of the argument to discuss based on the facts I presented. And yes, I’m including I-believe-what-I-said-I-believe as one of those facts. You’re just going to have to trust me on that one. :)

    The point that pro-choice advocates never seem to get, willfully or not, is that a pro-life person truly believes life starts at conception. Because of that core belief, we speak out for the life of that tiny human being that has no voice of its own. No matter when or how it was conceived, it is never the fault of the baby and we believe it has a right to live. This is not about punishing “sin” or based on what kind of people the parents are. No matter whether one or both parents is a good or bad person, the child shouldn’t be murdered (and yes, we see it as murder) because the child has done nothing wrong. You, as a pro-choice advocate, probably disagree that a fetus is a baby. You have a right to believe that, but surely you can understand that anyone who believes it is, in fact, a baby feels a need to protect it. If, heaven forbid, it became legal to kill infants up to two years old (as proposed by Peter Singer) what would your reaction be? Would you be horrified and speak out against it? I would hope so. Perhaps you could find a little more kindness and charity in your heart for those that disagree with you on when life begins. We may have more in common than you think, once the name calling and anger is set aside. It is better for our society that we have an open discussion about when life begins, and protect ALL life after it begins, than if we stand around insulting one another from the sidelines. To us, it’s about protecting that child. Period.

    Margaret, not Margerent. :)

    If pro-choice activists really believed what they say they believe – aka that abortions should be safe, rare, and legal – they would have no issue with pro-life groups praying outside clinics or offering information on other options (adoption, etc). These would only serve to help keep abortions “rare.” Unfortunately the actual goal of the pro-choice movement doesn’t align with their stated purpose. If they really wanted abortions to be “safe,” they’d be as horrified by men like Gosnell as conservatives were. Yet Planned Parenthood, despite numerous complaints about inhuman conditions at the clinic, and repeated failed inspections, chose not to report it. If abortionists really wanted abortions to be rare, they’d be thrilled to work with pro-life groups to provide counseling, pre-abortion ultrasounds, etc. Doesn’t happen. And we all remember the James O’Keefe’s recordings of Planned Parenthood breaking laws in interacting with underage girls. Planned Parenthood also claims to be an voice for social justice, yet refuses to acknowledge the role that abortion has played in killing off a high percentage of the black population. While blacks represent 12% of the overall population, they account for fully 24 to 30% of abortions. Margerent Sanger, the racist founder of Planned Parenthood, must be smiling in her grave. Or somewhere a bit warmer, which is where I think she probably is.

    Too bad she didn’t have a whistle on hand…

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I understand the sentiment, but the guy was holding the little girl. Shooting would be dangerous.

    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.
