It is a complicated issue for sure. I think the media plays a role. I saw this story on my local news and it was a quick blurb and then on to weather, like it didn’t matter at all. We have become desensitized as a nation to this violence. I see what Glenn is saying, and I wish I could do something. I vote and I don’t even feel like my vote counts. My country is making deals with Iran while also having to take military action to prevent them from dealing arms in Yemen. With frequency, we are now seeing people being nabbed trying to join ISIS. Folks are drowning in the Med trying to escape this same violent bunch… How am I supposed to have any affect on this hand-basket we are careening toward hell in? I pray. I try to be vigilant. My husband is on a submarine so someone has to be here with the kids… What more should I be doing? Outrage doesn’t change the situation…

So that is what Raul Castro looks like… Kind of like the lil’ old man who used to give all the kids butterscotch candies as we left church. Definitely not how I pictured him.

Hitler had no problem agreeing to all the terms Chamberlain set out. It is just an agreement they will feel no obligation to honor. Considering they are permitted to deceive in achieving their aims according to their laws, I don’t see how this is worth the paper it is printed on.

Actually, today he kind of resembles Neville Chamberlain, considering the deal with Iran.

Knew this was coming. Tail between the legs and everybody try to pretend it didn’t happen. I won’t forget the bullying from the LGBT community over this. You want equality? I think not. You want to tell me how to treat you, or worse, tell me what to think. Tell me that I am not allowed to disagree. Will you feel the same way about Sharia law? Will you so gladly submit YOUR freedom? Nope. I didn’t think so.
Good to know Pence is just another limp wristed republican like the rest in congress. As far as I am concerned his political career is finished. But he could fit right well with Graham, McConnell and McCain, no spine.
Seems to me your common decency declined to mention big business and labor unions who had the final say in both Arkansas and Indiana in favor of ranting out a minority of people who do not have as loud a voice as you seem to fear. Who can stop the way you think, or stop you from disagreeing? Sharia law? They're on your side.
Do you honestly think it was just the LGBT community? No, it was millions of straight citizens who have had enough of bigotry.
I fully agree. I now have less respect for the LGBT as a community because of this. They acted like children after prop 8 passed and ever since have been rewarded for it. I will follow Christ's example and love and pray for them, but I morn the cost they are inflicting on us all for there foolish and ignorant behavior. PEACE.
I can't believe you'll admit that you get bullied by the LGBT community. That must make you a very sad fellow indeed.
Getting told what to do by "the gays"

“When you hear the critics of the deal sound off, ask them a simple question: Do you really think this verifiable deal, if fully implemented, backed by the world’s major powers, is a worse option than the risk of another war in the middle east?” Obama said.
There is already a war in the Middle East, we are just busy rebranding it as a bake sale. The world’s major powers have expressed concern over U.S. eagerness with this deal. If this goes south, they will surely remind us of that.

Am I missing it in the article, or did they not say how they became aware of these two and their intentions?
 April 2, 2015 at 4:45pm
I feel for this fella. How many years did Churchill spend trying to warn about Hitler’s motives?
April 2, 2015 at 4:40pm
I thought the same thing. It was a tough article to read. I will likely get the book but it is going to be a headache.
“I woke up this morning to realize that I’m a minority in this country.”
I feel this way every time I pay my own bills without help from the government.

So, where is this list? No link? Was the site taken down? This is just a really incomplete article. I like the Blaze but if you are just going to recycle unverified stuff from the trashy NY Post, then you lose some credibility.
 March 20, 2015 at 7:22pm
Ha! I agree! So, who is grading these delightful won’t-we-make-you-feel-guilty-for-being-WHITE questionnaires?

So, I post here on the Blaze with some frequency but I never mention that I am in college. I am a non-trad student, dang near 40 and working on my Master’s degree. I am in an Emergency Management course and when the recent funding issue for DHS came to bear, it was made very clear by my professor and my classmates that it was just the republicans being idiots and not imagining their areas being hit by a storm requiring a FEMA response. I was fortunate enough to have a fellow conservative in the class who backed me when I pointed out that if the dems and faux conservatives would quit writing idiotic stuff into bills it doesn’t belong in, FEMA would have been funded without the hesitation… But no, we had to loop amnesty into the same bill.
Needless to say, neither he nor I were happy that the faux-publicans caved. It is a sad mess that we basically have Dem-publicans and Dem-lites. College is pushing this stuff hard and it is good to have some of us old people in there to level the nonsense.

Bahahahaha, but we need to wait until our barista invites us through cup note to engage in this deep conversation. :)

Old Nuke, I thought the same thing when I read this. When I was an Ombudsman for my husband’s last command, I would frequently refer people to the Chaplains for counseling but I always offered other options for people they could talk to who weren’t religious just in case… Not everyone who is having an issue is ready to hear that the “issue” is also a sin against God. Some of them just really want a pat on the back and to shuffle along feeling validated.

Yes, I can’t wait to go to Starbucks and hear the opinion of my very privileged and entitled 17-year-old coffee slosher on the matter of race relations… I am sure she has a wealth of valuable insight that I am too daft to have considered prior to my order of overpriced java. Back off Starbucks! When I want a pap smear, I don’t go to the library. When I want to talk race relations, I don’t go to Starbucks…

“There are differences between regulations and certainly recommendations, and I’m just getting at, there’s a difference between also secretaries of State or former secretaries, and staff at lower levels,” she said.
Yes, yes… We must make sure we hold the lover level staff to higher standards than the Secretary of State.

I don’t know… I’m a little scared of that eye brow.
 March 9, 2015 at 4:30pm
Exactly. If I take one picture of my kids, I take 50… It is digital and free. Not like when I was a youngster and I got my first camera. Ended up with 12 great pictures of my eye. :)

I saw them do this in Connecticut after the blizzard. I am just grateful we aren’t getting what Boston has been getting! I am so sick of shoveling. I already broke one snow shovel and I have two more. If those break I am declaring it spring and hunting down that dang rodent in PA.
