    “I stand by my words,” he said. “I did not know Greg Abbott was at the convention to hear me, and if I had known that I would told him directly to his face.”

    Suuurrre, you did, you coward. Why didn’t you hand these cards out to Abbott himself if you weren’t afraid of him?

    I agree Term-

    My husband and I own a couple of businesses, one of which is teaching young children. I don’t care if someone is tattooed nor do I judge them because of them. BUT, when it comes to being considered for employment with us, I choose not to hire those who are heavily tattooed and pierced because of 1) how young children are impressionable and 2) we need to project a professional image.

    If the tats are discreet, they are only a few (nothing on the face) and cannot be seen under their work clothes, I would still hire them IF they were qualified, just as any other applicant.

    Sapper- a Bellyband might work well for your wife. Does not require a belt.

    I was thinking the same thing Monk. Gov Brewer has proven to be a strong conservative. And, as usually the case, extras are added to bills that make them unpalatable and therefore Governors end up vetoing them. I say we find out more about these two bills.

    The Dems LOVE to cherry pick details to bolster and support their point of view. (Eg Mark Kelly: See! Gov Brewer agrees with us!).

    And, I have to say, that some on here are SO quick to condemn a conservative based upon sketchy details. We will NOT win elections if we don’t stick together and stop assuming the worst in the conservative. I know we have been disappointed in the past but, IMO, we can’t allow ourselves to attack each other at the drop of a hat. We will not always agree on everything, but we can agree that we need to turn this ship around in the next two elections.

    The Dems are trying to pull our strings. Don’t let them try to fracture our conservative movement. Old cliche but so very true: United we stand, divided we fall.

    A friend of ours son was on the bus with this teen. He was not injured but a few of his friends were.

    Praying for all the students and parents.

    @ jf00001-

    Ditto!

    I was called those names as a child, didn’t like it but chose to rise above it and not carry resentment into my adult life. My family and friends laugh at (and at times ignore the REALLY ignorant comments) Asian jokes. That doesn’t mean, though, that I won’t stand up for myself and tell someone where to get off when they have gone too far.

    ITA with you -the younger generation has taken on an uber-sensitive mantle. Man, wish they would lighten and man (or woman) up!

    Thank you Sapper for your post. My husband and I attend church and we enjoy listening to Joel as well. My nephew had serious issues and did not want to listen to anyone who tried to help him. He was filled with anger, resentment and bitterness.

    He started to listen to Joel, inspired by his message of Hope and (from Joel’s encouragement at the end of each of his sermons to get into a Bible-based church) is now attending church. He has turned his life around and it is due to Joel and his sermons. This is life that Joel Osteen has positively impacted.

    As a Christian, I strive to walk on a path of Grace, forgiveness, compassion, love and non-judgement. I am not always successful but I get up each day and strive to do better. Honestly, I see a lot of judging in many of these posts. So what if Joel makes a lot of money by working hard? Sound familiar, btw…?

    Many people are hurting caused through judgement, condemnation and life choices or circumstances. They need messages of Hope to help turn their lives around.

    THAT is a good thing.

    Not this Methodist or my pastor (his wife and I volunteered at our local Reublican HQ during the 2012 election) and most of our congregation. You are right- there is a liberal faction of the UMC (General Board of Church and Society) who stood with Pelosi espousing and supporting O-Care. They were not authorized to speak for UMC but when did rules ever mean anything to liberals?

    UMC is trying to get more conservative and Biblically based leaders to replace the GBCS. Until then, that is why I have my tithes go to local needs and charities- not going to give the rabid, social justice libs any of my money. Check out the their site- does NOT jive with many in the Methodist community and just reeks of progressive doctrine.

    The liberal Methodist churches are mainly up North (go figure, huh?). Though I guess we have a few nut cases in the South, too (based in the GBCS site). Sigh.

    Thank you Sargeking. I read the posts and loved the tips (hated the senseless violence of some very evil animals). Posted a response there.

    Thanks and you have a wonderful evening!

  • February 3, 2014 at 9:01pm

    Oh my gosh. That was just horrible and tragic! I just cannot comprehend the evilness, SMH.

    Thank you SO much for your very helpful hints and tips. I have taught self defense courses for women (am a 5th Degree Black Belt) and focused on preventative measures, such as situational awareness. But you incorporated the use of a firearm, some thing that was out of my experience and knowledge. I had some serious lightbulb moments when reading your posts. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with me and other women (and men!) on this site. You possibly could have saved a life tonight.

    I hope I didn’t come across as ‘I got this covered because I was trained by Spec. ops guys…’ ie arrogant and naive. My point, which I did not make very well, was that I wasn’t just carrying without some training in terms of safety, technique, stance, grip, etc.

    Again, thank you so much for your posts, for caring and, based upon your screen name, your service. God Bless Sargeking!

    Yeah- tell that to my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who never made it out of their communist hell-hole state. Equal alright- equal suffering, poverty, hunger and hopelessness. But only for the peasants.

    The elites never suffered. Notice that Mao was fat? Yeah, my grandmother was very thin and had hallowed cheeks. My parents sent money but never were sure if she got it.

    These elites who LOVE Communism and/socialism do not envision themselves being part of the masses or to be subject to the ideology. It’s for the masses for they are too dumb to handles their lives.

    Communism/Socialism lovers are in love with a Utopian society that kills millions of innocent people. If they love it so much, MOVE to a country that embraces that ideology.

    Thank you Sargeking! You know it’s funny- I was fearful of firearms just a few years ago. I grew up seeing people get shot and killed, starting at age 9. But With Glenn’s advice to get a firearm (PLUS the training that goes along with it) and the realization that the best way to get over my fear was to learn about guns and how to use them. Note: I NEVER was for gun control. I just didn’t want one in my home or on me.

    Wow. How I have changed. My husband calls me Annie Oakley because I love to go to the range and for tactical training (by former Special Ops guys). It’s a fun hobby that both hubby and I get to enjoy together. The open and fresh air of an open range, honing our skills- it makes for a perfect day. In fact, for last year’s Anniversary, he asked me what I wanted to do. I promptly replied: The Range!!

    I did not know that about FL and how women were instrumental in getting it to be Right To Carry. Yeah, take THAT women libbers! Issues, such as women carrying and using firearms (which empower women!) is what they need to embrace and support not the killing of the unborn.

    Thank you for the education- Keep up the good work and fight! Love your posts.

    Second that SargeKing! I have the SR9C and I LOVE that firearm. It is very ergonomic and the grip feels so good in my hand. I have small hands and when looking for my first firearm, tried a Springfield. Beautiful firearm but my ‘booger hooker’ just barely made it to the trigger. Wanted a Glock, but same issue. I call my SR9C, Sarah…

    My husband likes my Ruger so much, he is getting one for himself. I carry a Shield (I’m small at 5’1″) and occasionally the Ruger but mainly the Ruger stands guard duty at home, so to speak. Reliable, accurate and oh, such a pleasure to shoot!

    Lol! I’m Chinese and I make the same joke. By the way, good point! ;-)

  • November 8, 2013 at 4:29pm

    Seconded!

    Thank you Glenn and Sean for the message of Grace and Humility.

    UncleHerbert-

    You are correct- there is a faction of UMC which is far-left and tries to co-opt the church (hence, the UMC “endorsement” of BO care).

    I’m a Methodist and both my pastor and church are ver conservative. I spoke with my pastor about the leftist faction and he sighed because he and other UMC plasters have been battling them for years.

    The good news is that a conservative, Bible and Christ oriented faction is rising within the UMC hierarchy. I designate our tithes to go to local charities. I won’t let the lefties use my money.

    …”He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.”

    And by the same token, hanging on to your signature legislation (O-care) because of your PRIDE and not because it is good for Americans, is no reason to keep it in place.

    This man is clueless and hypocritical.

  • August 29, 2013 at 10:40am

    As a woman, I can totally understand your feelings. But I decided the best way for me to get over my fear was to learn how to properly use and handle firearms. My instructors are former Special Ops and are excellent teachers. DH was brought up with rifles but not handguns. So we both take lessons.

    I highly encourage you to learn from your hubby. He sounds very qualified plus it is a fun hobby and interest you two can share. We do and we LOVE it! Not to mention the greater peace of mind you two will have when he goes out of town.

    Remember: when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. They can’t be everywhere and you don’t want to rely on their presence. I carry both in and out of the house.

    Good luck!

    They hate her simply because she dares to disagree with their views and agenda. If you’re gay, so what? I don’t care. You don’t get a medal, special treatment or consideration. Grow up and grow a pair!

    Add into the mix, she is an Asian female who doesn’t tow the liberal line. I can totally relate because I am one as well.
