It’s nothing new. It’s been on America’s Funniest Video show for years and years. Like most everything else, perceived increases of any particular activity can be largely contributed to the massive increase in information availability, the speed of communication and the 24 hours news cycle.

It started as a private joke. Maybe she posted the video because she was proud of her daughter’s reaction and wanted other people to see it.
Why are so many Blaze posters such judgmental a_*hats? If the mom didn’t have some grace to teach that kid, then the kid wouldn’t have it to exhibit.
If we really care about freedom we should let others be free do do what they want, as long as it doesn’t infringe on anyone else’s immediate physical rights or safety.

Can the “indigenous” people provide some kind of concrete proof that they, as a specific and particular group, were really the first people here? Then and only then would they truly be the “indigenous people”.
Absent that proof, do they (the “indigenous”) have a release from the prior indigenous people allowing them to use the term “indigenous” and all its implied meanings?

The “Party of Abraham Lincoln” is certainly no conservative party and no party of mine. No president in our history (except maybe FDR) has done more to advance the power, control and reach of the Federal government, while simultaneously abrogating state and individual rights than President Lincoln. His decisions were major advances for progressives and greatly increased the rapidity of the ascension of uncontrolled, unbridled Federal power. Now, here we are, still under the heel of the oppressive boot originally worn by ol’ Abe.

I assume you are making some reference to “religion” here. If so, it is almost exactly the same thing, given the non-scientific method by which both evolution and global warming theories were “proven” and now taught as scientific fact. Both are little, no, make that nothing more than fervently held belief systems; each requiring massive amounts of faith and tremendous leaps of logic.
Also, if science and fact are so clear and so “on the side” of these things, why must they be defended and expanded by such militant and “Inquisition” like measures? Come to think of it, you’re science and the Muslim religion are pretty much twins in that fashion.

I understand what you are saying, Tax. However and unfortunately, many seem to define an unapologetic statement of truth or belief to be mean or rude simply because it is contrary to their own opinion. The current situation with Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty is just one of a plethora of examples that occur almost daily in this country now days.
If I think drinking or homosexual acts or adultery is wrong and say so, that (at least from me) would not be in any way rude or mean, but we all know there are many people that would interpret it so.

Fringe and outlier story why? Because the MSM which ignores so much truth, instead reporting lies and the latest Miley Cyrus event, doesn’t shout it from the rooftops? Is that what makes it a fringe story?
Too bad Liberty isn’t your first name. Maybe then you would support the reporting of stories that bring to light the continual march by government and corporations alike, to remove our liberty and kill our ability to think and act for ourselves.

Why would they want to create a situation that has a good chance of back-firing on them, when DD was already the biggest show AE ever had and was one of the biggest shows on TV period?
Your paranoid concerns only make sense if there was a need for the show to be “saved” or to improve ratings. Neither reason existed. This is simply a case of Phil giving an honest answer to a setup question and the idiot execs at AE totally over-reacting…mainly just because they are stupid.

Not really sure that just standing there ringing a bell constitutes “begging”. Whatever makes you feel better though. And getting angry about the bells?? Does your family have a problem with people helping other people or what? BTW, the Salvation Army is one of the few charities that uses almost ALL the money raised to actually help others rather than line some administrator’s pocket…over 90% of every dollar.

Since you are basing your opinion on your personal experience, I will answer your question using my view through the prism of my personal experience. Based on what I see in today’s “music” scene, what I know of the activities and actions of many past and current musicians and what I have seen from musicians I actually know….I would say the answer to your question is neither, Most musical people I have known exhibit no greater intelligence than anyone else. More creativity…mm, maybe, but definitely not greater intelligence.
I think most of this is just musically inclined, artsy types trying to make themselves out as better than “normal” folks because they are musically inclined. When i want to hear music, musicians have value (some of them anyway), but when I want my car fixed, or my illness diagnosed I could care less what one’s musical ability might be.

Daddy – You don’t know what her struggles were. But to look like that 4 days after giving birth means she didn’t devolve into a junk food eating, ice cream slurping, I’m eating for two so let me get fat pregnant woman. She obviously spent her 9 months continuing to eat right and working out. She should be ridiculed for this example of personal responsibility and physical health? You really think someone should judge how big her “struggle” might have been or not been?

Why couldn’t she accept payment? I have rented rooms, apartments and houses at different times in my life. I am pretty sure every one of the was located in some type of residential area and were not designated a commercial property. One doesn’t have to run a hotel (commercial) to rent a room or house (residential).

But wait…women are equal or superior to men according to all psyop literature from the last 4 decades. Then again, we disprove that every couple of years with winter/summer Olympic games and daily with the differing military standards for physical fitness.
No wonder progs are so nasty and mean. It takes a lot of mental and emotional effort to live so hypocritically and act like you’re happy about it.

So, when the cops show up to search your house, car or person without a warrant, that will be okay with you? What’s the point of having rights or having them enumerated and protected in the Constitution?

Firefox with ghostery = no ads. I am amazed at all the griping I see on this site about the ads. Amazing, effective ad-blockers have only been available for 10+ years. A lot of great ones are even free. Rather than bi@#hing, look for a solution and put it into action.

You are trying real hard to beat rangerskippy for least relevant comment award. Just to be clear about it, you are saying that engaging in 100% lawful behavior is a “poke in the eye” to the cops? The ones paid by our tax dollars to UPHOLD the law?
I believe your position is based on one of two things. Either you are to fearful to stand on your own and need the gubment to watch out for you, or you are one of the truly brain dead that actually believe whatever the gubment does for/to us is for our own good and meant to help. Either way, your kind of thinking deserves no respect nor further consideration.

We get it. You don’t like this guy. Big freakin’ deal. It has no bearing on the fact that there was no illegal activity. The cops had no legal cause for an arrest, except for the old standby accusations that cops make up and use whenever they have screwed up and been too heavy handed with a free citizen.
Get over your personal feelings and quit blindly supporting the state’s enforcement thugs.
 October 19, 2013 at 11:30am
It doesn’t matter to me how much a guy might “want” to get arrested (as you claim). The FACT is he wasn’t doing anything illegal. Therefore, the cops had no reason whatsoever to detain or arrest him. No reason to arrest necessarily means there was no reason to prosecute. The fact that there was an arrest and a prosecution when there was no illegal activity means this is really a persecution.
Anyone supporting such actions on the part of police officers or any other governmental thug is part of the problem. You support fascism and a police state. Allowing this leads to situations like the one in Dallas where a non-threatening, compliant man was mercilessly shot down by police.

Not sure why anyone would want it to look at all close to the old way. While it still isn’t the greatest comment section, it is a huge improvement over what was probably the worst comment section seen on the internet since 1997.
Exactly. I quite posting on here for months because it is not user-friendly nor can you find your conversation quickly should you return to follow up. Better now, but not by much. Why don't they just go with Disgus?
