in the 1700's 'well regulated' meant 'well ordered' or 'well equipped'.

We only lost ONE Starbucks? By proportion, that’s a statistical non-event.

So… Not Bloomington or the Lake Region?
Saying “Conservative part of Indiana” doesn’t really narrow it down much.

To be fair, Mike Pence does have one of those imminently forgettable and bland faces, the kind that caricaturists hate because there’s nothing they can exaggerate. All they could do is make his head big and his complexion whiter than 3 lb. bond printer paper. This coming from someone who voted for him for Governor.

Weren’t you just excoriating me in the other Bongino story comments for calling him “Bong-boy”?
August 24, 2016 at 8:20am
Agreed, but still scary and unqualified to be a United States Congressman.
 August 24, 2016 at 8:18am
Still living 100 miles outside the district he seeks to represent.
Still doesn’t have the temperament for public office.
On the plus side he looks as if he
would grunt rather than speak.

Bong-boy lives outside of the district he’s running for, when does that fact exclude him from the ballot? I would have thought that basic bit of information would have been required upfront, what with residency requirements and all. Where’s his water bill with Dan’s name on it for an address within the district from at least 6 months prior to the election?
I guess the Republican Party really is scraping the bottom of the barrell.
Bonb-boy? start off with insults from someone you clearly don't know? Or you just assume all distinguished secret service agents are marijuana users? If you are complaining about residency requirements, you probably ought to check all those black congressmen and the rest of democrats representing low income districts that live nowhere near their district and/or spend a majority of their time in the rich, rich, rich D.C. suburbs.
The Constitution does not specify that congressional candidates must live in the district they are running for. BTW, did you mean it to be "bong-boy," or was "bono-boy" what you were aiming for? If the latter, it would evoke the Ronald Reagan film "Bedtime for Bonzo." I think it may be bedtime for Bongino in this campaign.

Why did the front page image for this story show a Glock magazine with cartridges loaded in backward?

Brawndo! The thirst mutilator! It has electrolytes. It’s what plants crave!
De Joo handed the Islamist his own ass. The IOC handed him his walking papers. Boo hoo! So sad. Don’t let the door hitcha in the ass you landed on on your way out.

The only UNnatural sex act is the one you are physicly incapable of performing.

In the case of the Indiana pizza bigots, can anyone name one LGBT-based organization that came out with threats of rape and/or arson, or are you cherry picking the most heinous of utterances from excitable *individuals*?
This story is not about the Hilton Hotels and Resorts ads. This story isn’t even about the threat to “take our business elsewhere”. This story is about the fact that when this “inexcusable” affront to Christian decency happened, an entire political action committee, the American Family Association mobilized against it.

As a devout Atheist Kweerosekshul… I have no idea which direction I should jump on this story.
So instead, I’m just gonna sit on my porch enjoying a nice glass of home made lemonade with my trusty sidearm on my hip and watch the people who care about this story far more than I do tear each other new orifices god never intended them to have.
Ouch, maybe this sums it up for you?
You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill.

Stay classy, Indiana criminals.

The willfully ignorant are the most profoundly ignorant.
Your critical reading skills are atrocious. “This water, unlike surface water, must have come from deep-crust minerals and had been unable to reach the surface because of a layer of impermeable rock.” That which you claim contradicts me, contradicts you instead. The water they found was not from the surface and could not reach the surface, nor surface water reach it. Also, they did not find REMOTELY enough water to flood the entire planet all at once.
July 12, 2016 at 8:15am
You are the very definition of “hard of thinking”, aren’t you? Yes, virtually the entire planet has experienced flooding. No, there has never been a flood that happened everywhere at the same time. And did you ignore me when I mentioned plate tectonics above?
Oh, sorry. You’re a young-earth creationist, aren’t you. You’re incapable of believing in plate tectonics, because they take millions of years to make alterations to the face of the planet, and you can only think back 6000 years or so. But wait, then what is your problem with radiocarbon dating? It can reliably go back 6000 using basic techniques and equipment a high school chemistry student could use.
How did sea fossils come to be depositted on the tops of the highest mountain peaks? Simple. Once upon a time, there was a deep sea, full of life. Animals died, sank to the bottom, and were buried to become fossils in the sea bed. Then, over millions of years, the Earth thrust that sea bed up, until it jutted out of the water, with the sea fossils still embedded in it. Then, it continued to be forced up, along with all of the rock around it, until it formed a mountain, long after those sea creatures which had been fossilized were dead.
Or god did it.
Which explanation is scientific? Which explanation do even Bible believing geologists accept as true? Does the Bible dictate that Noah’s mythologic flood depositted sea creature fossils on the tops of mountains? Does the Bible even mention the fossils?
 July 11, 2016 at 6:50am
Oh dear. Now people want to disappear all the non-existent water of Noah’s floor by turning it into cloud cover to block the sun? Tch-tch. Christian apologists are really too deluded to be conversed with rationally.
July 11, 2016 at 6:48am
Subterranean water deposits are perfectly ordinary and to be expected. They are where the human race gets our drinking water from, for the most part. They prove nothing of the Noah’s flood myth. Even if you drain all the aquifers of the planet and then use that water to coat the entire surface of the Earth, it would amount to a few feet of water, which would quickly mix with all of the planet’s sea water as it drained back off the dry land, which it would never be able to remotely come close to submerging completely, and eventually drain back down to refill those aquifers.
You’re the one claiming there’s 5.5 miles of just seawater buried down there. Take your “theory” to a proper geologist and see if they don’t bust a gut laughing before giving you an explanation better than mine on how there’s no such thing as enough water to cover the Earth 5.5 miles thick in water hidden underground.
