Respect for Russell just grew 7 fold.

He is everything the NFL says he can not be. Too small to be quarterback and open about his faith. Got to respect his courage to stick to his convictions. Go Hawks (from a Bronco fan).
All the respect in the world for Russell Wilson. He is a class act.
He's one sports star that I'm happy that my daughter has a cute little crush on! She always goes for the "nice guys", never the "bad boys".

They were bread sacks not sandwich bags you idiot.
My mistake, Senator Bread Sack. Yes, much better. We can go back and review the teleprompter script if we need to. Did I mention she used a teleprompter? Every word she said was written for her and put on a little screen that rolls along as she speaks. Sheesh, what a loser. But nice bread sacks.

If Moores uncle died in WWII it wasn’t from a sniper bullet…..he probably fell out of the guard tower and broke his neck.

Although we may not like Mr. Flynts subject matter or his political platform, he has done a lot to shore up our 1st amendment. Had he not stood up for it as he did back in the 70′s, we might not have a 1st amendment to fight for today. Just saying’.

Lying comes so natural for the POTUS and FLOTUS. They would lie, even if the truth made a better story.
May 10, 2013 at 9:56pm
It’s not so much the changing of the talking points that has the POTUS in hot water but rather his reason for wanting to do so. Which was solely to save his re-election efforts and thus carry out his adgenda of advancing the muslim brotherhood. Plain and simple.
And Valerie Jarret needs to be questioned about her role in all this.
May 10, 2013 at 9:48pm
It’s sad to see that speaking the truth will get you fired.
The sad part of this story is that here is a man who has spoken the truth. And for that….he will be condemned. Sad but true.
May 10, 2013 at 8:14pm
Does anyone trust Valerie Jarret? I certainly DO NOT! I think she has and still is playing a role in this corrupt administration that is now in the white house.
Can I get an “AMEN”?

It just amazes me how Obummer ever got elected, let alone RE-elected! Are there really that many sheepish voters in this country? Are there really that many brain dead idiots who are so quick to give up their liberties and can’t think for themselves? It was a very sad day last November 6th. Very sad indeed.

Bottom line is simply, the bigger the gubment, the less freedoms we have along with more corruption and less transparency. It’s a proven fact.

correction……. only 1435 days.
February 15, 2013 at 2:39pm
This is yet ANOTHER example of how out of touch the Nanny in Chief and his administration are. How pathetic.
The good news?……….There are only 1445 days until a different dictator gets sworn in.
I will consider it to be the saddest day in American history to find out that the citizens of the nanny states of America need to have the government tell them that they can take care of the sick and elderly…….Oh wait……. They are already doing that!
Go wine somewhere else winedude. I feel sorry for you. You just don’t get it, do you??!!
February 1, 2013 at 3:41pm
First off….I’m truely sorry to hear of your loss, Mrs. Horton. Your husband, without a doubt is an American Hero. May god bless you.
I would also like to thank you for your well written article. It show the facts without any of the bias that we see so much in the main stream media these days. It must have been extra difficult for you to refrain from being bias having lost your husband in such a manner.
These people voluntreered to go kill men women and children in afghanistan. My sympathies are with them.And what is ptsd-but a euphymism for anger at the fact they did not have a green light to kill more people then they already did.Hegel is not dumb enough or gullable enough to express the inane view that to make the deaths of american soldiers worth it-we should stay in a war. Ridiculous.That is probably the dumbest belief the brainwashed by Fox war mongers gulls-love to regurgitate.
You CLEARLY do not know, nor understand PTSD. I have had a taste of what PTSD is like and it's NOT fun. I'm sure what soldiers go through is worse than what I have experienced.
There is anger, yes, but not because they couldn't kill more people, only a moron, ass-hat would say something like that. PTSD is more like grief and comes in stages of anger, anxiety, depression, nightmares, flashbacks, sometimes hearing voices.
When it happened to me, I was really angry for about 6 months. I was ready to fight 5-6 people on the side of the road. The anxiety that hits you in the morning when you wake up, makes you want to hide from the world, and saps your confidence. I have had nightmares of the accident that almost killed me, and flashbacks from seeing certain images. The bad part is that Ohio's Worker's Comp will not even recognize that I have PTSD, nor will pay for me to see a neurologist, even though I clearly had a brain injury (I was knocked out for four days). The hospital only took an x-ray of my skull, they never did an MRI to see if there was any brain damage.
Please research PTSD, retroactive amnesia, traumatic brain injury (TBI) before your make ignorant statements such as the one you made. You really make yourself look more like a fool than you already are.

What Cody failed to mention was that he was only able to fire his printed rifle once or twice before it blew apart. But hey…….He’s only one step from printing the real thing.

Enjoy it While you can, Honeybooboo. (or what ever you call yourself) There’s no way that Americans will allow any lefties to be in charge and runnin’ thangs.

Beck? Have you bitten off more than you can chew? Do you have too many irons in the fire? Get a grip, Beck!

If any form of law enforcement came to my house and demanded all my firearms, and I told them to arrest me because it was unconstitutional, here is what would happen:
They would butt stroke me (smash me in the face with the butt of their shotgun) then help themselves to a complete search of my property, sezing any and all guns and ammo. Then label me as a crimminal for noncompliance.
I’ll not give them that chance.
When they ask for my guns, I’ll smile and say, “Sure, come on in.”.
Who knows what happens next.? It doesn’t matter. The result will be the same. But I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

If someone called my kid “the next Tiger Woods”, I believe I would have to slap him into next week.
Maybe they had already been slapped into next week and they were just reporting back on you're kid's progress.
But, what if you were the reason he had been slapped into next week in the first place. If you didn't do that, would he come back to tell you and get slapped right back?
What if not slapping him would prevent next week from happening?
You're playing a very dangerous game here, altering time and all. You should try slapping him into last week instead to break the cycle.
I just realized that if you slapped him into last week, then he would be prepared for the slap, and may prevent the incident entirely by not talking to you.
Congratulations! You, sir, have just destroyed all of history.
Before you go hide in shame for your inexcusable crime against humanity, could you kindly go slap Obama into the Cretaceous Period? I would really love to see him deal with the Tyrannosaurus problem. Maybe he could, through executive order, ban sharp teeth.
