El_Marque “Why does everyone have to fall back on personal insults online?”
You made a statement which in effect defends the spying on innocent private citizens, expect ‘no more Mr Nice-guy’ treatment in return. People tend to defend their rights, their freedoms. Said defense includes attacking all who stand against those rights. Get used to it or remain silent. Stop whining. You dish it out, then take it.
“Everything there describes a tangible thing”, “a true patriot (conservative?) would never advocate an activist court legislating from the bench in such a way, right?”
Your reply is non sequitur. While ones ‘person’ is a tangible thing, you cannot conclude the ‘Bill of Rights’ only covers property. Define ‘rights’ in only tangible form if you can. If we enter the world naked (no property) and rights are inherited by virtue of existence (we are born with them), you cannot therefore conclude only property rights was the meaning in this Bill. Freedom is a ‘right’. Privacy by implication is a ‘right’. Can you smell it, touch it, see it, taste it? No? Then one must conclude the Bill of Rights was intended to cover more than mere property. I could expand this but space is limited and I imagine my point is made to the wise among us.

El_Marque “what part of the constitution says that your phone call history can’t be collected?”
Such ignorance brings us voters keeping the wrong people in power far too long. The right to privacy is ingrained in the Bill of Rights. The 4th Amendment is a good starting point: The right of the people to be secure in their persons… They could not know what future inventions would exist but they understood well the tendency of men to seek power and control which results in tyranny. Above all the right to privacy deters this. If they do not know your daily activities they cannot use this information gathering to build a cage around your existence. The founders were well aware of how the British used lists of friends and other information to undermine the freedom and even the safety of their subjects. Privacy is both the beginning and foundation of freedom for without it tyranny is close behind. This has been borne out so many times in history only the most ignorant of fools would refute the fact. Or the enemies of freedom which by the very nature of your question implies being a patriot is as far from your thinking as an ant is from the Andromeda galaxy. Using lists of your friends, purchases, travels (think plate readers, cameras, so on), political views, medical history, finances, writings online, and all else with computers running algorithms they build a prison of this nation. Or Prison Planet. Think about it, that is, if you are able to.
Why does everyone have to fall back on personal insults online? I am pretty sure that I am able to think about things, are you able to be challenged and make a fact based argument, or can you only stick to rhetoric and insults.
So, you want to talk about the Fourth Amendment and the "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects." Everything there describes a tangible thing. Certainly the Constitution can be up to some interpretation, but to include intangible metadata in the given list seems to be pretty close to changing the meaning, and I am sure that a true patriot (conservative?) would never advocate an activist court legislating from the bench in such a way, right?

fortherecord “I think they were not as good as they could have been. So now Vulcan is a dead destroyed planet, and Star Fleet is in a shambles after Khan killed so many of the Brass and the damaged Enterprise wiped out half of Frisco.”
You lack the years and wide perspective required to make this judgement. I remember the anticipation waiting for this new show being advertised to first air. All day long in school impatient to get home and fire up the TV. It was new and mysterious. Kirk played wild and loose like someone from the old west meeting space for the first time. If you had lived those years and could remember what you normally had on TV daily, you would know how great this new show was. Then came the 80′s and TNG, and mindless liberal PC tripe with it’s Metropolis like regimentation of Star Fleet and everyone in it. Made me ill to see what they did to the story that fired the imagination of my generation. Voyager gave some reprieve but it was the two new movies that gave me back what I had loved and lost so long ago. Vulcan was a small price to pay to bring back the newness and wonder, the wild cavalier freedom, the spark of scientific imagination a young child found in the fall of 1966. To those who worked to restore this magic, thank you.

TrickyDick “Ain’t that the lesbian mayor?”
Might there be another agenda? If the comment by TrickyDick is true, and we add to it her quote in the article (below):
“She’s arguing that she has a right to serve the homeless under the 1999 Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act because, to her, it’s a religious matter”.
Considering the multiple examples of gays searching out the Christian business and setting them up for attack, can it be this is yet another example? Only in this case using the instrumentality of government to further the gay agenda of attacking the Christian faith? Consider the obscure angle cited by the police. Clearly someone (or many) are searching long and hard to find any possible way no matter how obscure or minor to attack the work of this woman. Do they go after the markets or even the fast food businesses who may have food trucked in, using a variety of vehicles? How clean was that 18 wheeler trailer and what was the last load before the food, was it sterilized in between loads? Was it certified by the entities going after this woman?
They cannot be basing this upon her causing the homeless to congregate near businesses downtown quite simply because in ten years they said nothing to her, nor was any warning given to her before this citation as far as I can see.

I can see from many comments few people are left in America not living with their thoughts in a never ending state of degradation. It would not occur at first thought she was merely sleeping or resting by laying across the seat with her head resting on his right thigh? Certainly not to these cops and not to many posters here. An action normal in American life. Yet these cops use it as a made up excuse for pulling him over? How does this make her feel, how does it make her dad feel reading the story? No decency left in any of you? The other excuse was flipping them off. We are told this is a free country and I for one would feel the same way about cops sharing the road in such a vehicle on public roads. The cops pulled him over out of anger and I for one am sick of then hearing their false excuses as to why. Improper hand signals? Give me a freaking break. This merely further enforces the feeling we are in a police state and these cops have zero honesty, zero decency to so intimidate free citizens and begin with such degrading accusations concerning the woman. In effect their first thought was in the gutter as is typical with cops. Statistics prove this true just study the cases nationwide. Citizens are overwhelmingly treated in such a way every day. You do not pull over a citizen out of anger at their free speech especially in an armored vehicle and you do not begin with unfounded degrading accusations to our women.
The Supreme court said flipping off cops is protected speech under the first amendment but probably not a wise choice or good idea or something to that effect.
You are spot on. There is an flood of law enforcement acts of sexual assault, rape and sodomy, of women, girls and increasingly young boys. Here in FL there are over 100 verified incidents of law enforcement employees abusing women girls and boys sexually and frequently just forcing them to be fondled or disrobed.
Law enforcement is increasing populated with the most deviant elements of our society. Those that are moral seem to be forced out by design.
As a people we should start with these goons. If married, find their spouses and question them on intimate practices and how they can stand to be married to such a dishonorable sexually dysfunctional male. Find their mothers and ask them why they failed so miserably to raise these goons to be honorable and respect the truth and honor women.
Yes, that would be a start for sure.

Ps 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
Ps 5:9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:
17 And the way of peace have they not known:
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

“Essentially, there is clear evidence that he was ‘going over to the other side’ and he had a deliberate plan”
He knew others would risk their lives looking for him, yet he did not leave a note. If he had, would anyone have gone into danger looking for one they thought was now the enemy and not one of their own? In light of the quote above is this not to be seen as the actions of an enemy combatant fully responsible for everyone who died as a result? Also why is it the number of souls who gave all they had trying to save one they thought was their own not mentioned every time this story is published?

runwithscissors, I agree. I studied the secret weapons program in Germany during WWII and on many projects they were working on advances which would have devastated Allied forces. In virtually every case wrenches were thrown into the works which either slowed down or blocked the ideas from use on the battlefield. Hitlers fanatical insanity ruining tactical advantages has to be the single most important reason these ‘wrenches’ were thrown. On project after project it was Hitlers bad decisions from a military perspective which saved us. Divine intervention? Possibly. A fanatical lunatic snatching defeat from the jaws of victory? I have no doubt. In fact from the study of WWII in school I had no clue how close they were to total military superiority. Studying their secret weapons programs was a shocking revelation for me. If a German version of Patton had been in charge during those years I am convinced history would have been radically altered bringing our doom. 911 was merely a continuation of one of those plans carried out decades later by the very same forces allied with Hitler during the war. Knowing what I now do I have to say I do not think I have ever agreed more with a comment on this site than yours: “Hitler was head of a party, if he never existed, maybe a better tactician could have won the war for Germany”.

If ghosts showered more often they would not be so moldy.
It's the deodorant they use. It's called "Old Mold", it's the paranormal version of "Old Spice".
The best scents from Old Mold include "Island Corpse" and "Eternal Nap"
The top selling aftershave from OLD Mold is called Eau de Terra Firma.
I think they call it "Post Mortem Shave".
you realize we're all a little dumber after these jokes

OUTLAW_WEALTH “It’s just you and 14 other hypocrites. Assimilation is a two way street bucko.”
You just won the most lacking in intelligence award. Assimilation is NOT a two way street. This is the thought in the mind of enemies who have a goal of destroying the nation and culture they just relocated to. No decent person moves to another country not their home or heritage and demands they change to suit the intruders culture, or their way of life. If one comes to America they Assimilate to the American way of life. They have no right to work at destroying this nation or it heritage. If they do not like American culture, our heritage, then leave. Don’t let the door hit you in the A$$ on the way out. There is no two way street. People who thought as you do dragged my ggg-Grandmother out of her home, killed most of her family then marched her down the Trail of Tears. America as it has been my 61 years is now my way of life. How dare yet another group of intruders move to this land and start the nightmare over again by demanding I and my family bow to your demands that my way of life as well as following generations change to suit your needs. If you do not like America don’t come here you are not welcome. Nor will you ever be. No sane nation can tolerate such behavior and if they do all hope for their children’s future is lost.

I am old enough to remember Khrushchev drunk and railing to the US “I will bury you”. The leader of the USSR with full command of their nuclear force. Years later yet unchanged in outlook Kennedy reached out to them going against the policies Reagan was working towards. What the hell is the blaze saying using the term ‘similar move’? No it is not ‘similar’ blaze. Israel is our ally and would prefer a peaceful world. There is no similarity to Israel’s leader being asked to speak before congress as our friend and ally, and Kennedy tossing wrenches in Reagan’s plan to reduce the still existing threat to our survival. Russia was not our friend then, is not now, will never be other than in the eyes of liberal fools. No blaze there is nothing whatsoever similar between these two examples. The best proof is quite simply look at which one the POS is for and which one he rails against. If you guessed he hates our guts and loves our enemies move to the head of the class. He will be one of the ten kings set up by antichrist and is no doubt a member of the locust army set loose in those last days spoken of by the Prophets. These are only a few of the soldiers in that locust army building in these last days. Add the armies of Iran, Russia, China, others, and you will begin to see the reality facing us in the last generation.

Yet only yesterday the story runs on the blaze where a black man runs his car through a crosswalk with someone crossing, is stoned at the time, carrying pot as well as pills in the car and gets let off with a merely a warning. With his actress mother claiming racism and profiling by the police. Did you rail about him in that blaze story?
“She’s not going to get it light, no. This will be a lesson for her and everybody else.”
Unless they belong to a certain class to which the law does not apply right?

The never ending use of the terms ‘we’ and ‘us’ is one of the reasons I cancelled my insider extreme account 2 months ago after being a pay by the year member for years, from the very beginning. It is irritating beyond belief to listen to Glenn lump us into the group doing things to destroy our way of life. Day after day for years. ‘We’ are not the ones doing these things, none of ‘us’ are responsible. In fact there is little to nothing ‘we’ can do to stop it. If ‘we’ were to blame why would ‘we’ pay Glenn for his program. One would think someone making hundreds of millions speaking would spend a little less building Beckieland and invest at least a small amount of money and time being coached on speaking. Also disappointing was watching him lower his principles from the days on Fox so he could be with the ‘in’ crowd of wealthy technocrats building the technological nightmare humanity is doomed to endure in the future.
Our founders would have already put a stop to this.
You have already been called and labeled a terrorist by b. obama.

Montana1987 “So he was shooting at fellow protesters.
I didn’t think it was possible, but this guy might be dumber than Sharpton. Holy crap!”
Surely you know better? I have no doubt he had already talked to legal council who informed him of the sentencing difference between shooting citizens or shooting police as well as avoiding the intentional with forethought and malice increase to the judgement. Put simply if he can get a jury stupid enough to buy that story it makes a difference between a few short years with a chance of parole or upwards of life with no parole. I have not read if the caliber is mentioned but if it is a rifle would anyone buy the self defense against citizen lie? Oh I forgot. Every black member they will stuff the jury with will say not guilty even if a video showing the entire event proving his intent and actions beyond all possible doubt is found. Welcome to the 21st century.

Dushman Kush “Long Live the Communist International !!!”
Would you please crawl back under your communist rock. The sunlight disturbs the worms. This is America and your way of life has no place here. History has shown more than once in war what Americans will do when pushed down to the wire. Awaken the sleeping giant and reaping the whirlwind will be the least of your troubles. One should not use freedom to justify speech and actions in an effort to bring in tyranny. When the free are down to nothing left to lose the paradigm will return to the foundation. These are only the beginning of sorrows the unjust will discover when the rock fails to subdue the hard place.
Clinging still to Nostalgia for the Lost Republic, Comrade? Clinging still to History no longer relevant?
Embrace the New Amerika. You will enjoy life ever so much more!
The sick part is three people liked it
Fantastich speech friend. It is traditionally finished by Chewing the Carpet and screaming about “ZEEE JOOOOOOS!!!”.

Cavallo “Too bad for their kids though. Stabbed in the head by a fork in the womb.
What mother then celebrates the murder of her own child… what hideous monsters can do that?”
Surely you know. Godless lovers of death, evil, satan. Haters of any life that would cost effort and resources from theirs. In general liberals, leftists, democrats. Those who take from others in lieu of self sacrifice to provide for themselves, i.e., live off the taxes and/or goods of others without conscience, without justifiable need. Excepting those such as the sick, the weak, the helpless, the elderly. These are exceptions to the ‘taking’, since these are deserving of help and usually grateful for it. Any who work to destroy the generations of sacrifice of life liberty, of the work of the hands of others in building a nation, a way of life, liberty, and freedom. In other words all those who want to fundamentally transform the greatest nation to ever exist.
