That kind of stupid ought to hurt. That kind of stupid? It should be actually, physically painful–like hitting your thumb with a hammer, but the full-body version.

Better than a line item veto would be amendment stating that laws that would be passed for ONE thing at a time, not hundreds of different earmarks that have nothing to do with the original bill.

Excellent idea! The 17th removed the states, themselves from having a say. The Senate was intended to represent the interest of the individual states. Therefore if one of your senators were doing a bad job you would call your own state legislature and rip them a new one for the terrible job their senator might be doing, giving more control to the local level, as well as making Senators less beholden to lobbyists since they didn’t need to directly run for elections.

“Is everyone going to be an opportunist and a betrayer here?”
No, not everyone. But I will say, it doesn’t look like it will be very difficult to find someone to cast as the perfect Judas for this Season’s Easter Pageant.

I wondered when this was coming. Likely he stayed in the race as long as he did to siphon votes away from Cruz and Rubio–at Drumpf’s request. Regardless, he’s proven himself a hypocrite.
The only hypocrite is the candidate that lied to Carson supporters...Ted Cruz. Cruz has lied to his supporters as well claiming to be anti-establishment when he is really in the bag with the Guac Bowl candidate Bush. http://dailycaller.com/2016/03/10/ted-cruz-a-bush-by-another-name/
Cruz has completely surrounded himself with the Bush gang. How long can you still support him?
Spendaholic liberal Chris Christie has been following Trump around like an obedient puppy dog. Don’t lecture conservatives about who the establishment is behind. Many are lining up behind Trump.
Orthodox conservatives are a lot like black democrats trapped upon the plantation of ideology. Strangely, they appear to be blind to shades of gray and they let perfection get in the way of the good.
They will gleefully stay home just to show the impure conservatives that it's their way or Hillary's way.
Like George H W who said "I just don't like him" about Cruz?
TRUMP IS the NEXT president of AMERICA

Ol’ Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan having himself an Excellent Adventure!
Sure, he’ll be drummed out of Hollywood for being (presumably) pro-gun. Still, this looks WAY more fun than making any crappy, bleeding-heart, films for the Che-loving, Hollywood, left-set.
Of that percentage of licensed carriers, how many actually used firearms in those “violent” crimes? I mean, punching someone in the face would be considered a violent crime, Would it not? For that matter, what are we defining as a “violent crime” anyway? Kicking a dog?
It seems to me this whole argument is hinging on a plethora of hazy definitions and malleable statistics. We could either say 0.3106% or you could say 0.003106 out of every 100 “violent crimes”. Both are, of course, the same number. The actual number of individuals convicted compared to the actual number of licensed carriers. I would bet presenting it this way, that statistic would seem like an even smaller number. Just a thought.

Didn’t he (Zevon) also release a song titled “My S***’s F***ed Up” regarding his failing health? I remember it from several years ago– kind of a funny song even as it was written (I believe) by a guy who knew he was dying. (Zevon, not Bowie)
That song was actually released a few years before his cancer diagnosis.
It is still one of my favorite Zevon songs, though.
As i have gotten older and my body starts to fall apart, that song has become sort of a personal theme song for me.
Zevon was a hoot right up until the end. Loved his work.

Seriously? The Raiders and Rams were the L. A. Raiders and the L. A. Rams just prior to moving to Oakland and St. Louis, weren’t they?
Yes. The Raiders actually moved from Oakland to LA and back again to Oakland. And, now they want to move back to LA, this all under the same family ownership. I say the Raiders have had enough chances, The Raiders should stay in Oakland.
The Rams moved to St Louis because the primary owner was from there. She died and her family sold off their primary ownership, and now the new owner wants to move to LA thinking he can make more wealth there.

I’d like to know your source of information in making these assertions. While I did not understand what you meant my “He was mske God in the year 325 ad.” It sounds like you are referring to the organization of the scriptures at the First Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. While the council was in 325, the scriptures were from the 1st century and they do refer to Jesus and God being one and the same. The confusion and the accusation of polytheism (especially from Islam) is in the misunderstanding the Christians believe there are Jesus is a separate God. There is only one God, that I AM whom became a man, born with the SOLE purpose of being arrested and dying a criminal’s death on a cross “to pay a debt He didn’t owe for a people that owed a debt they couldn’t pay” in order to save mankind from itself, the one and only Eternal God.

Nope. No. No no no no no…
“Their reasoning for her staying in the classroom was because she admitted it,” Green said. “Had she denied it, she would have been removed from the school immediately. But because she admitted, they’re saying that shows she’s willing to change.”
That’s a joke, right? This is from The Onion or some fake news site, right? This can’t be serious. I mean, right??? That sounds like a line out of South Park.

Why not, that’s no better or worse than the idea of posting signs informing psychotic lunatics they aren’t allowed to go on a kill-crazy rampage.
We need to understand the lefties aren’t (necessarily) stupid and they certainly aren’t honest. To progressives there is no such thing as a “law-abiding gun-owner”. The truth is that they are licking their teeth to find a way to take away all guns and they don’t care if they have to ultimately shed blood to do it. The conversations are turning to confiscation now, and it saddens me to say that there’s really no way that scenario ends well for anyone.

I was talking with my wife on this. We were initially in agreement with the clerk until one of us asked the other if she was issuing licenses to couples who had been previously married and divorced. Biblically, if you’ve been married and divorced, you aren’t supposed to re-marry either.
I know this is likely a hot issue, but if we are to be consistent and honest with ourselves, we are thinking if we are against one, we should just as much be against the other shouldn’t we?
Like the bakery, if Christianity prohibits making cakes or issuing wedding-licenses for gay weddings, shouldn’t the same prohibition apply to second weddings?
I know it’s not an apples-to-apples thing, but I don’t know, what do y’all think?

Whoa… hold on. Since when has Beck and Company ever “pushed” Jeb? I haven’t heard anything positive about J.B. from Beck; at least he’s credited Trump for one or two positive things… ONLY one or two, however. But damn, the man IS entitled to his opinion. We’re going to end up with an out-of-the-closet socialist as president if we can’t be honest with each other about the candidates positives and negatives. Trump has some good qualities, but he also has some negative qualities that we need to be REALLY honest with ourselves about. Instead we are just cheering when he tells the establishment they are stupid (because everyone knows they are) and when he tells the media to screw themselves (because no one else will). Those things feel good, but if he ends up being another Nixon, or worse, it’s not going to be worth it.

Well… yeah, Soros, sure, but don’t forget Gates, Bloomberg, Speilberg, Winfrey, (just to name a few). Not to mention 90+% of the Hollywood multi-millionaires (plus their free endorsements at public events like… the Oscars.) The Statist Commucrats have a LARGE stable of ultra-wealthy, ultra-influential, Che-loving, statists to draw from. Yeah, so the Koch brothers are rich and donate to whomever they like… Maybe Republicans will agree to stop taking money from the Kochs when they stop taking money from their cronies. Deal?

“I think there is a bit of a problem when it’s warmer outside that it is in your office,”
That may be one of the most monumentally stupid sentences ever uttered in the history of the English language. So… for the sake of clarity, this babbling fool believes–in the dead-middle of Summer–is should be warmer INSIDE than OUTSIDE?

This is my school–rather, the school I went to in Jr. High. This isn’t an inner-city school, it’s not it a ultra progressive area. It’s in an suburban neighborhood (homes built circa 1970s). Shawnee, KS has been a conservative-voting area since the 1850s. However, this quote:
“The curriculum it is a part of, it aligns with national standards around those topics, and it’s part of our curriculum in the school district,” would make it seem as though this curriculum comes from a national curriculum, a common curriculum, a core curriculum that is intended to be nationally common. We took our kids out of public schools as well.
