There are so many comments already, but I have not posted in a long while. I was not crazy about Mitt Romney when he became the Republican candidate, but I really liked him more every single day. Part of the sadness of his losing the election–other than Obama’s intentional destruction of America–was that he was such an honorable man, good to people of all socioeconomic levels, and a man who did not need the job–either for the power or his ego. He truly wanted to get us to flourish. Without financial stability, we are all trapped–whether the family is overspending or the country–the results are the same. WE GO DOWN WITHOUT ONE SHOT FIRED. All anyone has to do is wait for our demise.
I really tried my best to give Obama support for as long as I could when he won the first time, and when America lost the second time in 2012, I just shut my eyes and begged God to get us through these next four years. Can anyone tell me how the destruction of our country is not intentional? This guy is supposed to be the smartest man since forever, and I am at least sure that that is not true. We are being regulated more and more every day–taxed and led to slaughter like cattle. I lived on a ranch for the first 18 years of my life and it was a working ranch. I would trade everything for that setup now. It amazes me that Progressives never get tired–have you noticed? Maybe it is because they say the same thing about every issue at all times. I’ll continue to pray for all of

I have to admit that I was very worried that this Pope was going down the “social justice” road. Many prayers were uttered. I feel blessed as a Catholic, or really any Christian, because he is demonstrating what it means to be loving and honorable, meek and humble, and he is now establishing his leadership and warnings to the Church throughout the world. It is sometimes hard to remember that we are not really supposed to find and join a denomination because it is the least demanding, but actually the one that is following the beliefs that Christ taught while on Earth. Finding a church that helps us attain those goals is a challenge. I am also very tired of the “rate a Christian” game that many play among their friends. The “I am a better than you Christian because I sing in the choir and blah blah blah..” I am not playing that game for many reasons, but the biggest and most important reason is that there is no time for such nonsense. Christians need strong leaders and strong followers.
Me too Debra I had the same fear, but I am really loving this pope, so humble, in his life, in his words and in his works.. I am not Cathloc but I am proud to call this man a brother in Christ... and for the "Catholics aren't Christians", people....no need to comment..I think God has a pretty big tent, and is wise enough to understand how his people might come to different conclusions.
"Social justice" as used by Catholics doesn't mean the same thing as when used by leftists.

One reason that this may not be forgotten is because the reporters are getting dropped by their insurances also. Too Bad, So Sad/ I have not been dropped, so I am not counted in that number, but my deductible is now $6500 and my prescription coverage is nonexistent. Wait until all of those numbers start getting counted.

He is not sorry for lying to the American people; he is sorry about the rollout of the website. Also in that interview he has quite the slip of tongue when answering a question–saying that he can’t believe the website did this to him er, people who need to get insurance. The website let HIM down. This guy’s ego is so huge, he cannot even say he is sorry–he is the type that when totally pushed gives the “if I did something wrong, I regret it”—we have all gotten those types of apologies and they mean nothing. His approval ratings are plummeting and he still cannot say he is sorry for lying to every single American. There is proof that he knew and it was discussed as the great numbers of people who would lose insurance. I cannot even listen to him because of lying and that ego. Go on vacation and leave us alone!!!

I sincerely doubt that Mike Rowe gives a hoot about anyone who bases his or her opinion of him by whether or not he can have a conversation with another professional person who is daily kicking around new ideas to find out the best way–or if there is any way–to save our youth, their educations, and the republic. I watched the interview, which, by the way, was interesting because it was a sharing of different ideas, and how another person is turning his ideas into action. And ACTION is something that we better figure out or the action is going to be taken away from us, and we are just going to wonder how everything got so messed up in America. I have a neighbor of thirty years who barely waves to me because she hates conservatives and anyone who disagrees with her. Our kids grew up together and we blocked off our street every July 4th and had a block party–and sadly, I made the mistake of expressing the view that I do not believe as she does, that it is acceptable–no, more than acceptable–a right–that our grandchildren will be paying for our country’s spendthrift habits. She believes that there should be no limits put on how much of a tab we run up because those coming after us should pay for us. I still smile and wave and refuse to let even a major policy of life make me ignore my neighbor. However, when all the bubbles burst, I will not patiently explain what, how and why it happened.

I hope it is a blackout on Fox because the last time this White House excluded Fox, their ratings went through the roof. These guys really aren’t very intelligent, are they? That time it was under Gibbs–oh for the day when we thought he was awful–Carney must have gone to the Barrak Obama stuttering when lying school. Who cares if they answer a question–it is the same answer for every question–I dob’t know when the president found out–I don’t know, let me get back to you on that–Obamacare is just a few glitches from being great!, and the new puppy is doing quite well: running, frolicking, eating, sleeping–he is a really smart dog and sometimes we cannot tell the two apart, and yes, you did see the First Lady’s arms clearly when she was bench pressing the new pup–Good Times!! I want to know if the choclatiers and pastry chefs have survived sequester to make the gingerbread houses that no one will see because the WH is closed. I know they start in October making all the dessert decor and I want to know if the army of chefs have been furloughed or are working like busy elves.

Fun story–anytime the trout and bass are not hitting when my husband and I go to our favorite lake, we go by the spillway and fish for carp–they put up a good fight and are not for eating.

Is there anything that could make the people in America angry enough or sure the direction we are heading is wrong that would bring all of us out of our homes spontaneously. What would happen if AMERICANS reacted–not congressional hearings, but people who have had it. Has there ever been a time that we went out into the streets impulsively and peacefully protested? And better yet, would it make any difference if we did? Absolutely no violence.

Today Judge Napolitano stated that once the President gets America involved in this war, he can do anything he wants to do, including landing troops on the ground. Judge said that no Congressional resolution will prevent him from doing exactly as he pleases. I hope everyone–as hard as it is to do–listens to some of the answers from his press conference in Sweden. He is a fumbling, stumbling, whistling and hesitating mess and they ate him alive. There is not one person I know who does not have a feeling of dread in the pit of their stomachs for many different reasons, but mostly because there is no PLAN–and every war game turns out very badly. America really could go very bad, very fast. The lack of caring for each other that we have seen increasing in news stories will now go international, and the possibilities for darkness will increase here and abroad. Al Rosen said today that Kerry–about halfway through his trip–his language and demeanor changed because he was not giving the President credit for the plan in Syria, so he was reined in and the second half of the trip he referred to “the president says” and “the president’s plan” every few sentences. This is how insecure our Commander in Chief is–it is time to fine your higher power if you do not have a relationship with him already.

It is not whether he wants us move on or not for me. A couple of weeks ago he said that all Visas to Muslims students should be cancelled because of the Boston Marathon. I know they all joke with him, but I cannot watch The Five because he is just such an ass to his “colleagues” and he worked in such and such administration- of course he proudly admits he was blotto the entire time. Bob is just plain rude. He shows no respect to men or women on the show–and I don’t care how he “makes nice” offf the sow with them–it is not interesting to watch. It’s like watching a married couple (like one’s parents) fighting, but their are five of them. Whenever Bob cannot even think of a retort, he just says something insulting and degrading to the women on the panel or starts talking about how badly Republicans handled something. Won’t listen to it.
I agree. That's why I can't watch "The Five". At first I was mystified as to why FOX kept him on the show, ruining their ratings. Now I know why. Basically, they are a bunch of rank Libs with a few Conservative 'posers' in the stew for their phony rant on 'Fair and Balanced'. I'm not buying that line anymore and never again.
He starts talking real fast while mumbling under his breath like he is just spilling out all of these facts. He's like "Well the repubs mush mush mush mush " like he just really said something. I hate the mother ******.

I was watching a mindless talk show the other night and a comedian I did not know stated that he had just come from the White House from a meeting with the president on how the entertainment industry will be used to sell Obamacare. Someone asked if he got to see the president, and he said he was sitting right in front of him. He said a bunch of names of stars but I only remember Amy Poehler. The outright “in your face” attitude of this administration can still boggle the mind. This comic then proceeded to give his sales pitch–I found myself stunned to hear this person say he was told by the pres how to do it and then in the next second, he went into it with gusto. Well done, Mr. President.

What was really surprising is that during the “Pat & Stu” program that follows Glenn Beck’s radio program, a woman called in and volunteered to be on the “game show” and have her life scrutinized. She explained that her husband is the one who thinks and says, “So what? I am not doing anything wrong.” She volunteered her entire family and friends and doctors–and it really made it very real when Pat and Stu were telling her who they would be able to access if she was to do the experiment. I can tell you that all of this “record-keeping” by the government has about 40% of the people I used to share emails with, not sharing emails any longer. Once in a while I will write a short note asking if everyone is okay and if life is good for them, but I respect the fact that they want to do as much as possible to keep their private business private. I do not understand the immediate response to any comment from the left about the snooping, spying, and the IRS to be something like, “you didn’t care when it was Bush.” Don’t be bullied–it does not matter when you began to get informed–it only matters that you are now plugged in and ready to defend your argument for today, and tomorrow, and maybe there will be something to leave our children besides the horrible shackles of debt, hatred and war. I know that I cannot let the “crowd noise” distract me from what I want to accomplish, and what I want my children to remember about me. I am done warning–I am now focusing

Look, as wrong as this was, my son-in-law called me laughing so hard he was crying. (I am Caucasian and my husband is Chinese) It took him about five minutes to be able to get the web page out of his mouth coherently–between near sobs of laughter. Of course it is tasteless, but as long as I was not the one who pulled the stunt, it caused an overworked son-in-law to laugh hysterically. Oh, and by the way, Korean last names are mostly one syllable. Big error, Big Trouble, Big LAUGH!

Thank you–there is no pleasure in wishing anyone ill. We disagree POLITICALLY and that is not the most important part of our lives–or at least it should not be.
July 7, 2013 at 9:16pm
I hope that Mrs. Kerry is able to recover completely. I also hope that those who comment on this site should really know that it is inappropriate to wish ill for anyone. I hope it is not the regular Blaze people.

If it is an old photo being used as this year’s, it is a serious mistake–he looks uninformed–it must not have been policy that he could learn about in the newspapers–just like us. What a maroon.

The king can do anything he chooses and is MANLY–the peons may not own a plastic gun–and soon a thought of their own.

One more thought–I like that Neil says of Fox Business that they are not about blue or red, but they are about green–our green and the health of the money supply.
