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?

.44 Magnum? Seriously? Then load that sucker up with a .44 Mag round and try to shoot it.

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.

Yep, unless some of us stop watching no one gets to see it. so… Who’s going to take one for the team and go to the range while the rest of us watch?

I was never a big fan of Rob Lowe. But I do have to say I respect him more than I did before watching this magazine…
Ditto. I like the guy a lot more now. Wish more celebs would keep their opinions to themselves

Almost… Except the country isn’t taking $50 from “you” for the tattoo, “she” (the country) is taking $50 from you to pay the bills. The money for the tattoo, she would claim, was from her writing a check for $50 and depositing it back into the same bank account and claiming it paid for it with the $50 it just deposited.

I don’t know which is worse, that we live in a world where someone would do something like this, or the fact that, rather than grieving, our elected servants immediately scramble to make all this about a political agenda on gun control. I never hear about how we are so disconnected from each other that someone could fester in this kind of evil and why are we so anonymous with our neighbors that no one could see this person (persons) were capable of doing something like this–not to mention preparing for it and carrying it out.

What came to my mind was that sure, they could forcibly shave him, but why? If I’m the prosecution, I would prefer he not shave. For me, I would have rather answered the poll above with:
Who cares? Showing up in court, LOOKING like a kill-crazy terrorist, won’t exactly help his defense.

I respected where you were coming from below where you are basically telling everyone how they should listen, allowing everyone speak their mind. Then one post above you are telling someone who is trying to voice their opinion what they can or cannot say by saying they shouldn’t speak about religion. If she feels that’s something important and wants to add that to her part of the discussion. Who are we to say otherwise? If she feels religion helped her to become a self-sufficient member of society, then great–it’s her opinion of her situation. If you and I don’t agree with that perspective, well, that’s just as great.

Okay, just to be fair, Hannity really didn’t get very far with letting this kid get a word in. I really wish he had let him say more because from what it sounded like was beyond the first few sentences of the “occupy talking points” everything sounded like it would have been absolutely drowned by logic and common sense. I can certainly see why Hannity wanted to verbally scourge this kid, but I personally think the satisfaction of a verbal beat-down. But if “occupy” is trying to say it has a valid argument and a workable plan for the United States, then let them state it honestly and thoroughly.
Seriously. The stuff this kid was talking about was a joke and wouldn’t stand up to the scrutiny of a debate rooted in reality.

Agreed. I am thinking they are going to leave the “law” alone and attack guns with regulations instead. Use the EPA, USDA, FDA, SEC, or even more likely, ObamaCare.
Actually just yesterday this came up in conversation where a friend told me they were being asked by their doctor if they were a gun owner.
Wow… wouldn’t it be keen if, to keep your freedom, you had to procure health care on the black market too?
Sorry… it’s just getting harder and harder to keep from being a sour, jaded, cynic.

Interesting also, in addition to the noted change in Mr. Nugent’s hand position (as mentioned in the story update); listen closely to the background audio. At 18 seconds (in the first clip), then there is a cut and after the cut you can hear an airplane that you can’t hear just before the cut where Nugent’s demeanor (and hand position) seems to change very quickly.
That in itself would, arguably, provide a wide enough base of evidence to beg question of the producer(s) as to what they did not want “us” to see. It could have been Ted Nugent asked for a moment to clear his throat, blow his nose, or use the restroom. But the sudden change of mood in the conversation alone is (again, arguably) enough to call in doubt the validity of the entire interview.

Why not? If you can afford it–and most of those things are legal in many states with the right taxes and paperwork. Have you priced even the cheapest transferable automatic firearms? Not to mention the cost of the ammunition? At roughly $1/round, (depending on the caliber, of course) how long can the average gun-owner afford to shoot a gun that runs around 700 rounds-per-minute?
It’s already against the law to shoot at people. Why make laws that make breaking the law illegal? I have never had the desire, but I have to think if I am planning on going out and killing a bunch of people, I am not going to be worried about breaking laws against obtaining the guns I am going to use.
Banning anything just stocks the shelves of the black market…
Sorry, I suppose this is a little off topic.

That’s absurd. Obama, is not the antichrist. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t have the antichrist’s contact info in his blackberry.

What do you expect those without class to do? Act under-creative and classless, of course. The depth of their intolerant intolerance, and ideological bigotry depicts such a new form a knuckle-dragging cluelessness. It’s absolutely breathtaking. How can these people who scream “fascist” look in a mirror and see fascism?
Instead of acting like a schoolyard bully, why wouldn’t she, a true creative intellectual, seek to engage Mr. Beck in a true intellectual discussion? Unless, her definition intellect and creativity begins and ends with the of “spewing hate” and interacting with someone with different ideas on an intellectual level comparative of a preschooler.
