Yes there seems to be a certain segment of society that “tip” aclly refuses to tip. Of course this isn’t true of all but more times than not a good majority don’t. My wife, who is a server experiences it everyday. Servers often argue over who will take these certain tables. Once, she had a lady with a group of friends who rang up a $80 bill. My wife gave her the bill, returned to the table and received the credit card, it happened to be a government issued food stamp card. It was accepted but she never left a tip. The very person paying for her dinner, in essence, refused to help her back! Utterly outrageous! How can the government allow an assistance card to be used for leisure? Hard working people rarely have the privilege to throw around their own money much less that which doesn’t belong to them. Another fine example of why this country is really living on “borrowed’ time..yes the pun was intended.
My daughter and many of her friends work as servers (in many different restaurants) while they work their way through college and the horror stories they tell about so many customers and how they treat the staff is sickening. In regards to this story I will side with the server. The character of the NFL speaks for its atrocious self the past couple of decades!

here is yet another hotly debated issue which shouldn’t be difficult for Christians. I am what I consider to be very conservative but on the issue of the death penalty I firmly beleive that only God has the right to give and take life. One post here quotes scripture from the new testament “for the wages of sin is death” as justification for the death penalty..well then each and every one of us are worthy of death because we’re all sinners.
I think about what sentence was handed down to our Lord and savior, this most despicable and cruel punishment for a crime he did not commit and what did he pray to his father as he hung from the cross? forgive them for they know not what they do…couldn’t God have zapped them all out at that moment? Of course he could have but he didn’t, so why should we?
its easy for christians, see Romans 13...
Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.
you've decided to replace scripture with your own personal scripture.

I read about this yesterday. Yahoo “News” is notorious for posting anti conservative stories everyday and as soon as I saw the headline, something like, “Bauchman tells crowd God caused the hurricane to reign in government spending” I just sighed. We all know how the media has an agenda to search out and destroy all conservative candidates leading up to next years election and what I say is, keep it up’ as all they are doing is providing fuel to the fire..come election time we’ll just see how their stupid tricks work for them.

all these things we are now witnessing today were predicted a few thousand years ago by Jesus himself but there is very little urgency within the Christian community. I often wonder how we would react if many of the terrible things which often occur internationally were to happen here? God has obviously spared this nation from many of the world’s catastrophes because of our faith in him, however we are on a rapid decline in virtually every aspect and what is worse, leading the rest of the world down with us..the time is near when all of these things we often read about elsewhere will happen here..God help us all.

SWEATHOG-You are right but I know Glenn’s point is that all religions find common ground while respecting each others point of view…which was evident last year during his 8/28 event. On the other hand it is very dangerous for religions to merge as there is only 1 single truth and God doesn’t compromise.
IN Revelation it clearly states that there will be only 1 group saved during that terrible time..”those who keep the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.” There is our truth…beware when we see religions clasping hands and compromising on certain points…remember narrow is the way, never follow the majority.
So true, I am so thankful that we have a God that know the intent of our heart and loves us. I love Glenn and believe he loves Jesus.

DAN-I had to laugh..”Wink Wilkinson morning zoo” comment..that was funny! I have had the same minor complaint about Glenn’s radio show and the reason why I rarely listen anymore. Glenn is a superior television talent, who understands the power of persuasion but for whatever reason he pulls back a few degree’s on the radio. I suspect there are a couple of reasons for that- for one he does his show with his buddy Stu who makes him laugh and vise versa. I also think that Glenn, coming from a morning show background has a hard time leaving those “zoo” aspects behind. I find myself at times yelling at the radio, “Glenn, c-mon brother stop and get back on point.”
It used to be I’d get my radio fix each day from Rush and at night watch Glenn…guess I’ll have to fork out the $6 bucks or whatever for his new website GBTV…I love ya Glenn but have to agree with the “Zoo” post.

the only vacation I would agree he take is a permanent one. It has been said and is true that during a time of such economic unrest where millions of Americans are more concerned about putting groceries on the table than to ever consider a vacation find this il advised. How many golf outings and vacations has this president taken anyway? It seems to me that this couple views the position as justification for all the perks which go with the job, at the taxpayers expense..I conclude that he wishes to raise taxes to fund his families luxurious lifestyle.

I’ve done a bit of research on Dominism and it is certainly something to keep an eye on, however I think it’s a bit of a stretch to link Bachman and Perry to this movement. The authors argument that they are is very weak at best but for herself and in her opinion any candidate who is conservative and Christian will always be suspected of turning our nation into a theocracy. Although I do beleive there are both leaders and members of certain churches who share this view, it certainly isn’t mainstream..at least now anyway.
August 16, 2011 at 10:54am
and the next move after that would be to establish term limits..this I see as the greater problem because, as he said their only real concern is their re-election. career politicians lose touch with real Americans after to many years in office…Sheila Jackson Lee, Harry Reid and Nancy Peloci to name a few..on the other hand we continue to elect these people year after year to our own demise. Maybe just maybe last November was the wake up call we needed..America has had enough and unless we continue to vote in those who truly care for this nation we shall soon see an end of the great experiment.

TOMYMICHAELS – I am in total disagreement with your statement when referring Hitler to a Christian. What that man stood for was in total opposition to New Testament scripture such as “love your enemies” and since Hitler viewed Jews as his enemies he rejected Christs own teachings. Lucifer himself believes “of” Christ but rejects everything he stands for.
Are you insinuating that Martin Luther believed "of" Christ but not "in" him? He absolutely didn't follow the teachings of the New Testament, and he was the father of the Protestant Reformation. Again, I refer to the book "Our Hands are Stained with Blood" by Michael L. Brown (1992)
August 16, 2011 at 10:29am
this is beyond shocking! Totally unfathomable to think that a father of a child could do such a inconceivable thing. Know this, our world as we know it is running out of time before our Lord returns to end this once and for all. Evil has been permitted for a very short time especially when we consider eternity. All of creation throughout the universe must be watching in horror over our little planet, an example of just how evil we truly are. Come soon Lord and save us from this wrenched place.

just an ongoing effort to make conservatives appear loony. They knew exactly what they were doing choosing this photo for their cover. It’s appalling and childish. I can just see the magazine editors cackling like a bunch of goofy teenagers after deciding on the photo.
I am all out of “can you imagines” ..such as can you imagine Newsweek choosing a similar photo of Barack Obama for their cover? In my opinion the further these people slime downward the more determined the conservative base will become come election time…what they are doing, and without seeming to understand the rep-ructions will work just the opposite…so I say keep doing what you’re doing.

this so-called CNN host had to have been hired only in the name of “diversity’ because his interviewing “skills” were seriously lacking. It was one of the most uncomfortable exchanges I have seen from a supposed news outlet. I felt like Lemon was himself extremely uncomfortable interviewing Rand and why he came across as not only a dunce but an advocate for the democratic party. Rand handled himself with class and dignity throughout and it was painfully obvious he withheld saying the things he wanted about the interview and the interviewer himself. CNN has truly tripped over the line where now they are nothing more than a talking point carrier for this current administration. Rigid…unbelievable!!

in my opinion the press has reached an all time low..their extreme partisanship is seen for what it is daily and this obviously crossed over the line. The questions asked sounded like a very disgruntled voter, certainly not a journalist with integrity.
What amazes me here is that he essentially admitted an agenda when he called himself part of the “lame stream press” yet went on to ask questions in a partisan manner anyway.
What bothers me most is how the press is relatively successful in shaping public opinion. Sarah Palin being a prime example. I am very worried about our nation.
July 14, 2011 at 9:57am
People like Bachman and Cain allow the left to act out their racism..it’s perfectly O.K. to “gay bash” and make fun of black republicans but a republican do the same to a leftist is off limits…it reeks of hypocrisy.
July 13, 2011 at 9:19am
To “I love Jesus & Israel”…you quoted “those not found in the book of life were thrown into the lake of fire” O.K. lake of fire is what it says it is..what does fire do? It destroys. The word destroys was also used by Christ himself when he said, “it’s better to lose an eye than for the whole body to be destroyed” in other words what Christ was saying..if you are aware of a particular sin that prevents you from living a holy life eliminate it (not a literal eye) because the choice is far better than to lose eternal life.
The simplest scripture of all tells us that our ultimate gift is eternal life…what is the opposite of this…eternal death…to cease to be.
There is a hell for sure but not as interpreted by most churches today…the lake of fire is reserved for the eventual elimination of all those who rejected Christ..forever.

if it wasn’t an ideological decision then why were some employees reprimanded? Anyone with half a brain knows it was because of what was edited. Personally what NBC chooses to do on their network is their business but it’s also mine to refuse to watch.

try to imagine the press calling the lefts position on homosexuality “controversial” …have you noticed that it’s only called this when it comes from a conservative? Like S.E. said 80% of the country claims to be Christian so shouldn’t the lefts position be considered controversial being in the minority?
outside of “marriage equality” a religious institution, what is it the media and homosexuals want? Simply put they want their lifestyle accepted the same as heterosexuals … They say they want acceptance from Christians but refuse to accept the Christian view that it’s wrong..so i ask who is it that is intolerant?
If you are a Christian who believes like she does, that homosexuality is a sin, creationism is the story of how we all got here, then I don’t think you would call it junk science, I think you would call that, you know, Scripture, Christianity. Talk about validating the opposing point.
It's not going to get any better dthej, it's only going to get worse. That's OK though when the truth is on our side!
With 80% of America being Christian, why then are we seriously considering putting a former tax collector in the White House? Her only job outside politics has been to get more tax dollars out of taxpayers. How does TEA reconcile that?
Oh what scandal - praying with gay people who don't want to be gay anymore... Unbelievable! It's coming, it's just around the corner - a law to enforce politically correct prayer. Sick!
So where are all stories about Bachmann's superior positions on the issues? Enough already with the Palin, O'donnell, Angle, they aren't treating her fair stuff. Get people fired up for a lot of nothing. About we move on to some substance here.
Exactly! The wicked take the truth to be hard. They feel guilty, so if they can get everyone in the world to think that their behaviour is normal, and right . . . their guilt is assuaged.
The interviewer looks stupid because he isn't actually listening to her replies to his questions.
Too bad she didn't go after Tim the Tax Cheat and put him in jail. Any bets most of the tax collecting she did was on liberals? Someone honest had to do it.
S.E. Cupp is cute ... did I say that I despise MSPMS lately? Well, I do.
Homosexuality is a abomination.
To say that all christians are creationists is ret@rded. Even the pope has said creationism and evolution are not mutually exclusive beliefs systems. Also, plenty of christians support gay marriage as well.
PS. SE cupp is hot.
Hey JROOK- It's the liberal media who wants to talk about these fringe issues, because they can't win a debate about substantive issues! The economy? " What economy, Bachmann wants to pray the gay away!" At least she will stand for something, unlike that mush in the White House that would change his mind over and over again for political gain (SPINELESS JELLYFISH)!
Part of the controversy comes from the fact that Marcus Bachmann lied about whether he employed this kind of therapy. The Bachmanns would be in a much less embarrassing position if he had been fhonest and defended his own practices instead of leaving it up to S.E Cupp and others to do damage control. The fact that he has still failed to do so makes me suspect that the claims that he has used this therapy on kids whose parents want them to change whether the patient wants it or not are may be true. That would be a serious ethical problem. Since homosexuality is no longer considered an illness by the medical community, trying to “cure” it for any reason other than that it’s what the patient himself wants is brain-washing and could leave the patient much worse off than if he had just been left alone.
An interesting comparision, homosexuality and the media wanting approval from Christians. Does the medias want approval for which they know what they know is wrong in their actions?
July 12, 2011 at 7:44am
and don’t forget he also said, the American people are also focused on “our programs” whatever that means..I suppose CSI means more than the future of our children. Honestly, for me, I cannot remember a time where I’ve been more focused on the state of our country and obama may wish to remember last November when all of these so-called Americans weren’t paying any attention. I say let him do and say what he wants because it’ll only mobilize the majority that much more to boot him out of office.
July 12, 2011 at 7:38am
I’m happy for Glenn and his family. Texas will suite them all well..after that stupid episode at Battery Park a few weeks back I think they all need a little break from NYC. I wish them all the best with the start of their new life.
