    Rotaredomsyfg, You would be acting against what you’ve pledged to defend.

    The Constitution’s 2nd amendment recognizes citizens’ right to self defense, not retaliatory use of force. Government is solely authorized to apply retaliatory force. When challenging an officer’s authority to do something as common as see your drivers license, and he jerks your door open, no jury in America will ever believe that you shot him in self defense. They (and I) will simply believe that you are an imbalanced hot head, and executed a cop for being an a******. That’s not a right we do or should recognize for civilians or for military unless lawfully ordered, former military or not. Semper Fi, and thank you for your service.

    Not a bad idea. Next time I see another divisive story like this, I will. Thanks!

    “Atheist” is no more a proper noun than is “theistic” or “blond”. Atheistic is just an aspect of an ideology, not an ideology.

    And for FWIW, as an Objectivist, thank you for not throwing all atheists into the same bucket as the embittered fools who want to strip religion out of government. As long as I can occasionally replace a school prayer with some brief secular words of encouragement, pray all you want on my dime. It’s still a million times better than apathy.

    Thank you! As an Objectivist, I absolutely feel the same. We have hundreds of critical issues that we need to fight together for if we’re going to same our free republic, and I’ll be damned (no pun intended) if I’ll start firing and by buddy in our fox hole because he sees 25% differently than me.

    The Blaze is in my top five information sources because 1) it’s insightful and 2) Glenn Beck works to reach out to atheists.

    I’m an Objectivist, and believe I have much more in common with Christians than 95% of atheists who base their morality on contemporary values. But this forum has become much more militant toward atheists than it’s owner. There are atheist vs. Christian stories here every 4-5 days. From my perspective, it’s taken a dark turn. I know what the editor is doing. Activity and revenue is enhanced by disconsonance. It’s as easy and as sleazy as just putting up some T&A like other do media. But it’s destructive to the fabric of what Glenn’s trying to construct. I ask you to reconsider.

    I love GBTV, but I can get 99% of what’s on TheBlaze.com from Levin, Drudge, HotAir and Breitbart, none of which agitate people against me. I never liked the way The Blasé teases readers to click on links or overloads each page with aggressive banners, but at least that didn’t tear us apart. Keep this up and The Blaze will be just a dark echo chamber of agitated social conservatives.

    I don’t think so

    I HATE the way The Blaze WASTES OUR TIME with teaser links to stories on pages that are so full of advertisements that even on a fast computer it takes so long to discover what the story really is. Too often they’re cr~p k like this!

    You don’t respect us. You’re all frauds.

    Compare that crap to Ayn Rand’s phenomenal Address To The Graduating Class Of The United States Military Academy at West Point, “Philosophy: Who Needs It” Ithttp://fare.tunes.org/liberty/library/pwni.html

    I swear Obama is itching to go head to head with Ayn Rand’s philosophy. Conservatism is not the antithesis of his philosophy, it’s Objectivism. Obama once snapped back at criticism of his policies with something like, “What do you propose instead? The Virtues of Selfishness!” (That’s Rand’s explanation of Objectivism.)

    Intelligent design activists who want signs to protect their dogma are acting like gay activist on the right. Divine intervention is wholly and fundamentally incompatible with scientific investigation! Therefore it has absolutely no relevance to a FREAK’N “SCIENCE CENTER”!

    I have nothing against your non-evidence based religious hypothesis. Christianity has been helpful if not fundamental to lifting the West out of barbarianism. As long as people want it, teach ID/Creationism in Religious Studies, Social Studies, Cultural Anthropology or even Literature. But IT HAS ABSOLUTELY ZERO TO DO WITH SCIENCE and any campaign to shoehorn in there is just a profoundly aggressive and bone-headed attempt to undermine science!

    Ha! Mike Rowe ends his video about a group of teenage school boys protesting with “because wood is a beautiful thing”. Funny guy…

    This is not that unusual. In 84, a room mate of mine in the USMC got busted down just one rank for stomping on a flag and saying some crap about Reagan. I don’t know what he was thinking.

    I watched it 10 times and can’t see the foul. Looks to me like she just lunched forward.

    Well said.

    You don’t understand. He’s not risking his life just for risks’ sake. He’s conquering his self doubt over what he thinks is irrational fear. You may disagree that it’s irrational, that his control on wall is virtually certain, but be believes it. And you may believe that even if it were, he doesn’t need to prove it. But he does. Different strokes…

    It’s not just “fear” they’re conquering, but losing control to “irrational” fear. Rational fear’s a good thing.

    Ever stand on the edge of a precipice and be overcome by it? Can’t let go of a hand hold because one slip and you’re dead? But what are the odds that you’d slip just standing there? A billion to one?

    We didn’t have cliffs where I grew up, but I liked climbing very high trees. I never had anything close to his skills, but once while 70′ up, I jumped from one limb to another. It was just a 5′ jump so the odds must have been in the hundreds of thousands to one that I’d make it, but it was important to me that I learned to trust my mind over my “irrational” fears. It was just a little thing, but it was a very memorable milestone that set a patter for life.

    Dear Admin!!! This forum software sucks! There is no way to present contra evidence to the pseudo science of bigots – no threading beyond the first level, no link to a post’s replies and no support for quoting. Therefore, hate speech at the top of 80+ replies effectively goes unchallenged and stets the tone for the rest. It’s threads like this that make me seriously rethink my association with The Blaze. If this is not addressed, The Blaze will be know even among constitutional conservatives as a moron magnet! Fix this now, please!

    The country needs about 10 Mike Huckabees, John McCains, Donald Trumps, Jeb Bushes and Chris Christies to run for president along with one Ted Cruz. Think about it…

    Maybe… or maybe Jesus was really a proponent of irreverent humor, something many people need in a mad world, and karma will catch up with you… (no offence intended, just playing…)

    The jury is split. I made that my Facebook profile photo several days ago. Got a couple of likes and an OMG!.
