    Oh sweet, the nearest big city to me is Sacramento, and I’ll probably be using the Sac airport within the next two weeks.

    I love these stories too.

    Although, these parents might want to start saving college and not count on a scholarship.

    Why is the military just giving away it’s vehicles and equipment?

    I may get screwed over in Cali, but I’m still not moving to Mississippi no matter what you say.

    Begging the question is not sound logic.

    I’m an atheist and I’m also the executive director of a public charity (AlmostFreeCollege.com). We help people get a college degree as inexpensively as possible. I don’t get paid. It is completely altruistic.

    I also happen to believe that the purpose of government is to insure negative rights (i.e. liberty rights) and that only charities should be responsible to providing for positive rights (i.e. altruistic welfare rights), or preferably that individuals should secure their own positive rights.

    @richb313, most people who claim to be Christians, I am not saying you are, don’t really believe in God. Humans only exist on earth for a blink of time when time is viewed against eternity. So, when a child dies, it should be a joyous occasion if you truly believe — no matter how horrible a death. The dying person gets to go to heaven and spend eternity in paradise. Yet no Christians are really happy when this happens, and many actually blame God. Maybe these people are just selfish, or they really don’t actually believe when it comes down to it.

    I’m not so sure I’m ready to pat him on the back. It is good he came forward, but either he swung at the ball or he didn’t. Yet, he comes forward to say maybe I did and maybe I didn’t but count it as if I did. Only he can know if swung at the ball or not, and it sounds like he knew he swung at the ball, so just admit it. If he REALLY isn’t sure then he’s an idiot.

    It’s only the militant atheists that you see making asshats out themselves. Most of us really don’t care what religious people do or believe.

    As an atheist, I have to admit that this is true.

    The divorced Barbie is way better. It comes with half of Ken’s [stuff].

    How I think it went down.

    Officer Wilson sees two men matching the description of robbery suspects. He pulls over and tries playing it nonchalantly, and using the fact that the two men are walking in the street as cover he says, “Excuse me sirs? You can’t walk in the middle of the street. I’m going to need to speak to you for a moment.” The two men play it just as cool, “What’s the problem? We wus just walk’n home.” As the two men approach the officer they notice when he puts his hand on his weapon. Brown rushes Officer Wilson. A struggle ensues. Officer Wilson is pushed back into his patrol car with Brown on top of him. Johnson is yelling for his friend, “Kill that m*th*r *****r!!” Officer Wilson is able to free his gun and gets off a shot that misses, but it causes Brown to retreat. Officer Wilson now has adrenaline pouring through his body. He is still in fear of his life even though Brown is now retreating. Officer Wilson is also now enraged with anger. He pursues the fleeing Brown and shoots him to death without regard to to Brown fleeing or being armed. Then Brown quickly arrests Johnson who is no longer interested in a confrontation.

    That’s my take. I’m guessing that there is truth to both sides of the story. I do believe Brown and Johnson initiated the attack, but I also believe Wilson shot an unarmed fleeing Brown. However, I doubt I could blame Officer Wilson for doing so. I probably would have done the same thing.

    “The school has finally launched a war on gingers. These soulless gingers aren’t natural. They’re the no different from pink and blue haired people. They must be banned and prevented from disrupting classrooms. What we really need is a final solution to this problem.” — Superintendent Cartman.

    RonboSandanista is correct that I live my life based on what I believe is right or wrong and without God everyone else would do so as well. You might think that this would lead to chaos and anarchy, but that isn’t true. We all still have to live in a world where society makes laws, so no anarchy and chaos.

    More importantly, a version of morality does exist that doesn’t require the existence of God. I believe that a scientific basis for morality is possible (e.g. game theory, negative/positive reciprocity, negative/positive rights, etc.).

    In general I try to follow the Golden Rule, the concept that “rights” must impose no obligations on others, and society can only impose itself on others when these moral rules are violated. This covers the vast majority of morality situations.

    This is a HUGE mistake!

    Changing the Constitutional through a Constitutional Convention is a populist way to change the Constitution. So, think about, what happens when progressives start using this same mechanism to add their own amendments?

    The media routinely backs progressive causes and candidates. Why on earth does anyone think they wouldn’t do the same for progressive amendments. The next mass shooting, and they would repeal of the right to bear arms. They would also support an amendment that says corporations are not people (i.e. place limits on free speech). Who knows what kind of civil rights or homosexual rights will be added to the Constitution with unintended consequences (or intended by some). Imagine redistribution of income codified in the Constitution.

    Nope, this is a really dumb idea.

    Star Parker would have been a great host. Female, black, and conservative. She would have stood out starkly from the conventional liberal white guy. The same with Bettina Inclan. A strong female, Hispanic, and conservative.

    Or they could have gone with a more well named conservative woman. Names like Dana Perino, Katherine Ham, Katie Pavlich, Dana Loesch, and S.E. Cupp come to mind.

    However, if I were filling this slot, I have the perfect name. A name that has gone after both liberals and conservatives and in that regard is similar to Russert.

    Sharyl Attkisson!

    The left wing Gregory wasn’t pulling in the viewers, so going with the left wing Todd, who has a grating personality and is also unattractive, ought to do the trick. Huh?

    If they actually wanted viewers they would hire an attractive conservative female. There are a lot of them out there. However, we know that NBC is more interested in propaganda than monetary concerns.

    If the Israelis run short of conventional weapons then they can always go nuclear, and the blame would be right at Obama’s feet.
