    david, apparently you do, except in this case, only if those civil rights are guaranteed by the first amendment. Marriage is not a right it is an optional path in life. If you are not born with it, it is not a right. You were born with a conscience and the right to that is what has been dealt a serious blow today.

    The majority of Americans have voted in every state that this issue has been brought up in to define marriage as between 1 man and 1 woman and yet here we are with homosexual marriage legal. That is why I say that your vote no longer matters. This is the very definition of Judicial activism.

    Those who want to see government replace God/Natural law are the only ones who are happy about this ruling.

    Please show me where the constitution says anything about marriage. I’d love to see you find it because it’s not there. That means this is a state’s decision to make. Every state that has taken up this issue (37 of them) has voted in the same way: Marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman.

    I would much rather have the government stay out of it entirely, but to your point, THIS was certainly not a win for the Constitution.

    Unfortunately thom you are right. This is what democracy looks like which is exactly why I’m glad we weren’t living in a democracy. Seems that we are now though. Now what the majority want is not as important as what those who make the majority of the noise want. Rather than having civil dialogue and discussion between a group of rational people we have the hateful minority and their professional protesters forcing their will on everyone else.

    This is exactly what democracy looks like and it is sad to see that the republic has gotten here.

    It’s official. Your vote no longer matters.

    Duckman, the bike rider was wrong to call 911 for this. In his defense though, if bikers don’t report violations of laws like this nobody will. As you can clearly see from all of the commenters on The Blaze people in automobiles own ever paved surface in existence. And furthermore everyone better stay out of their way and make sure they don’t ever have to slow down or inconvenience them in any way.

    I love how the commentary is that bikers are rude and think they own the whole road, since obviously it’s the car drivers who own the whole road and the bikers are inconveniencing them by making them slow down sometimes (although nobody is actually saying that part of it).

    fullmetal have you ever ridden a bike? You can’t see well. You have no rear view mirrors and most of your ability to look behind you is limited by your body. Furthermore turning to look usually propels you in the direction you turn your head. An unfortunate effect of balancing with your center of gravity shifting. You can’t stop as quickly as a car even though on most surface streets you’re going just as fast. It’s a lot harder to propel yourself back into motion under your own power rather than stomping your fat foot on a gas pedal.

    I do agree though that there are circumstances where it’s necessary to park in a bike lane and this is probably one of them. The cop did definitely abuse his authority though. No reason to call 911 though. Just dismount, if necessary, walk around and go again.

    Either way I understand his perspective. As you can tell from your and other people’s comments on here, if bikers don’t report laws in their favor being broken in this way, the car drivers who self-righteously think they own every inch of every road in existence certainly won’t.

    Actually they do mind but they don’t have a choice.

    Putter, You might want to look up cycling traffic laws sometime rather than assuming they’re doing something wrong. They are not the same as car traffic laws.

    Hagop, You say that we’ve “given up on God’s sovereignty and are trying instead to please the world,” I say, “accept the world for what it is and try to see how God’s sovereignty made it.” That’s exactly what science is as you mentioned. Observing how the world and figuring out how it works. Since God made the world what we’re literally observing is the rules he set in place for it. The simple fact that I can sit here at this computer and type a comment into it and broadcast that out to the planet is proof in itself that these observations are pretty accurate so I can’t immediately discount them.

    Terminator, for one God didn’t breath life into animals, he breathed it into Humans. That’s what differentiates us from animals. For two, believing that God could create the universe instantaneously and believing that he chose to do it that way are two completely different things. One of those comes from the misinterpretation of Genesis through a series of translations and re-translations by fallible men working with fallible languages (which don’t always match up exactly as observed with what happened at the tower of Babel), and the other comes from observation of God’s creation. I’ll leave it to you to determine which one is which. I’m not trying to convince you to believe anything, just to stop with the vitriol when discussing while ignoring what’s right in front of you (I.E. some form of computer, maybe a light bulb or two, etc.).

    How about if he didn’t just sit back and let it happen but rather patiently guided it throughout millions of years until Man’s body was ready to receive his spirit? If you understand the mechanisms that drive evolution you can easily see how that is possible unless you are simply looking for an excuse to disbelieve his influence. I’m afraid you lost me on point 2. I don’t see how a flood could ruin the process of evolution…

    Since evolution appears to be your sticking point, go research chromosomal crossover. Specifically its effect on mutations (the drivers of evolution): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromosomal_crossover
    Do so and ask yourself the question, “What if these mutations don’t really happen at random?”

    That might just be the kind of information that the cretins are too dense to understand? Even if it’s not true (It’s not described in the bible after all), I still think God would rather have a person ask honest questions rather than blindly submitting to what fallible men say is true. Rather than immediately accepting anything as fact, try to make it fit with what you already know to be true if it doesn’t already. If it fits it’s probably true.

    Take a look at the picture where the two men are hugging it out and see if you notice anything concerning on the right hand side of the frame as the whole room is supposed to be in applause and weeping loudly. Look at that and tell me America is not yet dead. I agree that there are still a lot of good people around, but we are very far from where we should be.

    If you can be staring at your damn phone when something like that is going on and be completely unmoved, there’s a problem.

    Charcoal, Sulfur, and Potassium Nitrate. Go make your own powder. You’re completely missing the point of what I’m saying.

    Sounds like it’s time to start loading ammo at home and gifting it to friends and family in exchange for something else. That way it’s not a sale and no license would be required. There’s always a way around it.

    Rudimentary firearms were used 900 years ago. It’s not hard for someone with limited knowledge to replicate this well versed technology. Why can’t these cretins come to terms with the fact that no matter what legislation they throw at guns, lunatics will always be able to get their hands on them (even if they have to make their own) and cause tragedies?

    More proof that communist entities thrive on stealing the ideas of others maybe? The more I learn about Target, the more I dislike it.

    Throwing a little ***** a beating and killing him are COMPLETELY (see how I can use all caps too :-) ) different things. This kid’s life was not in danger, and he was being taught the responsibility that comes along with the freedom of speech. Any freedom comes with the responsibility to not abuse it and you can’t have the freedom without the responsibility. This kid was simply being taught the responsibility part of it.

    I completely agree that it should be the parent doing the punishing, so don’t get me wrong there, but you are drawing parallels between things that are not even close to the same.

    Nobody in the right here. The kid is obviously a disrespectful little *****. The teacher is obviously a hot headed jackass. Kids, especially 14-year-old ones, are notorious for testing bounds. He should have been taught a lesson, but not in this way. I’d much rather see parents have the freedom to beat the crap out of their kids at this age when they act like that without CPS taking their kids away and teachers deferring to the parents rather than taking matters into their own hands.

    Thanks Whiplash! Now everybody in my cube farm is wondering why I’m laughing hysterically.

  • April 30, 2015 at 10:05am

    This is a real American. This man is now my hero. I only hope I can be as awesome some day.

  • [1] April 27, 2015 at 10:45am

    So without information about what the kids did nobody can say whether the punishment was justified or not.

    That’s not the point though. The point is whether the mother has the right to punish her children as she sees fit. Knowing how children at that age range act, I don’t think twice in siding with mama. Especially since they weren’t in any danger or risk of harm.

    What’s scary to me is how many people on The Blaze comment section feel that having the police/cps micromanaging parents rather than how these kids must have “suffered” for a few hours in a basement. I was often locked in my room when I was young. My parents were often chained to things when they were young. A generation before that, children were routinely beaten when they misbehaved. The funny thing is that people from those generations generally had more respect for one another and good manners. That’s the generation that fought WWII. It’s interesting how our understanding of “acceptable parenting practices” are becoming less strict at around the same rate our society is falling into decay.

    They are terrified of Senator Cruz running for president. I love it.

    Now if we can just get the GOP out of the way.

    Wow! I made it 12 words in and this idiot was already discredited. No need to read the rest. Next.
