Apologizing for offending people of a faith that justifies and celebrates the killing of those who hold different beliefs is beyond me. ISIS killing Christians is less offensive to our media than drawing a picture of Islam’s prophet… The media needs to stop apologizing, stop thinking that they will be placated by silence because they won’t. Stop condemning people for speaking or drawing things that might offend. Everything offends someone.
name one person apologizing? The point is youre ignoring reality. WERE PLAYING FROM BEHIND. By constantly falling into progressive traps and abandoning consistency and stooping down to their level we end up just complaing to eachother, and now fighting with eachother. We all agreee here. That being said theres nothing wrong with looking at what we can learn to make the same point without the distractions next time. We should always be doing this. We dont its why we lose. Its why we end up with the lesser of two evils because we get hung up on something usually in religion which we have to stop using as a way to try and change law, or peoples minds, its been what 50 years of trying it hasnt worked for. You realize the same reason the proi-gay people are so loud is because we have too many people making statements that play right into their false narrative that we are anti-gay. So many people are abadoning their values and abandoning what worked for BB look at how he got america to get congress to make sure we didnt get a bad deal. He didnt come out and point out issues, he thanked Obama and America for support. Then talked about all the values we share. Congress hasnt been this united on anything in I dont even know how long. Its not just because the congressmen think its politically advantageous it wouldnt be this bipartisan otherwise. Its because the people said you better not let a bad deal happen. Theres a ton to learn from that.

My kid doesn’t really get a textbook for anything… Common Core mostly uses print outs from what I can tell. As I type this, my 10-year-old is taking the SBAC and is writing a persuasive essay on if children should be allowed to vote… He said he was going have fun with it since he is the only one in his class who thinks that would be stupid since kids aren’t taught about the Constitution at his school. :)

Exactly… When you are hemorrhaging, you don’t call the doc and make an appointment…

She is angry the media did not change her words to match what she says she meant instead of what she actually said… It isn’t a mischaracterization of what she said, it is a mischaracterization of what she WISHES she had said. Tough cookies, sweetie. You really stepped in it!
Her lack of ownership of her own words paints a pretty clear picture of what is wrong with the city she runs.
As if having a black president enables him to end crime. Or is he saying out of respect for our black president, no one should kill a black? Tell that to the blacks. They are killing MANY more blacks than the police.
Good one Common Decency!

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.
 April 2, 2015 at 7:02pm
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?
 March 20, 2015 at 6:43pm
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.
