As self-aware as a toaster. “We don’t narrow-minded people that think they’re right about everything trying to impose their beliefs on others.” Um…so you don’t want people like yourself? Read 2084, the commies infiltrated the schools, and it’s all brainwashing now.

Huh. I liked the idea when I first read about it…in 2084 the Search for Love, Hope and Faith. boooo. plagiarism!

Actually, he said he doesn’t know how old the Earth is. The bible said “there was a passage of time.” That’s pretty bloody vague. As to “Do you believe Earth was made in 7 days?” Of course! Time is relative, is it not. How long is a day to God? Perhaps a day to God is a billion years. Maybe its a nanosecond. Maybe it’s both at the same time. Quantum, b*%@#($!
This talks about how the age of the universe is perceived from the point of the big bang and from the point of the earth.

Well, Carson is a brilliant con-man. He got lucky in all those surgeries. That’s just obvious.

Oddly, if his theory was UFOs built them, you’d probably agree. Who is to say that they were not used for grain first and then used as a tomb after the need had past. Once one Pharaoh had a tomb as such, they all HAD to have one or they would have looked silly. You cannot ascertain the original intent. I am sure Carson will tell you that they were USED as tombs. He merely said they were originally designed/built for grain, and laid out a compelling argument. Even so, are we not all allowed our own “nutty” theories on things of little consequence? I think his views on the debt or ISIS are actually somewhat more important.

What lies did he tell? The stabbing attempt has been verified by interview with his mother in 1997 (unless you want to call her a liar too). The fake final exam story has been verified by a school news reporter (although he got the course number wrong…guess he didn’t google the course when he was writing it because he thought it unimportant perhaps). He told he could go to West Point for free. How might someone decide to describe that? Dunno…maybe as a scholarship? huh…all valid. All reasonable. Shall we look at Hillary? “I was under sniperfire when we landed…” video shows her being greeted by children and walking calmly to the building (not running/ducking as she claims). “It was a video on Youtube!” meanwhile, she was telling foreign leaders and her family it was a terrorist attack. Shall we get into every one of her position changes? Shall we get into all the lives of the women she shredded in her attempt to save her cheating husband? She is vindictive and a liar and devoid of any character whatsoever. So…what do you have to say about Carson again? Even if you maintain he is lying…dude…what was HE lying about? He DIDN’T stab a guy? Meanwhile she was lying directly to our face just to save Obama’s re-election chances.

This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about on one key point: You CANNOT have capitalism AND communism. In capitalism, individuals own the means of production. In communism, the government does. As such, you can have an authoritative government that has a capitalist economy, which is closer to what China is. They are communist in name only.
Capitalism requires ownership. Ownership requires control. Government can give you the illusion you own something while maintaining control. That is still communism. Capitalism is an illusion on planet earth. It exists nowhere but is constantly used as a scapegoat for socialism, communism, fascism, dictatorships, and any other form of collectivism you want to name. Arguing over the differences in collectivism is as productive as arguing over which side of a cow patty smells better. Call it what you want but in the end your still left with a pile of crap.

Am I the only one that clicked on this story, saw who the contributor was, rolled their eyes, and didn’t read the article? What a buffoon.

Ha ha ha. This guy is such joke. Remember his “Arguments Pro Gun People Can No Longer Use.”: the Constitution and protection from crime? He gets his opinions from Bill Maher. 1) Trump said that Mexico is not sending us their best. Is Mexico’s best all berry pickers then? 2) He said being captured does not a hero make. True. I respect those that serve, but not all of them are heroes. Most of them are doing their job. Some are heroes, but just being captured does not make you a hero. This guy’s concise analysis: Based on what other people have said that Trump said, I do not like him!

Dana, if you really wish to know what the flag is revered, you should ask someone that reveres it. As far as my and mine go, the rebel flag is a symbol of taking a stand against overwhelming odds. It is the time that the States said, “No.” Even when the war went badly, we kept on fighting tooth and nail until Sherman left a swath of the South on fire and ruined. You want to know why the rebel flag is revered? It is revered as a symbol of fighting against all odds, even when your bloodied and dying. That’s why.
Even a born and bred Minnesotan like me can understand your explanation. Thanks, Firesaber.

As a white, Christian, male that speaks out on political correctness: Political correctness is about silencing the opposition to their views. Anyone speaking other than the prescribed mantra must be silenced. It is about thought crimes and is the greatest tyranny. I will expect this lady’s eye teeth in the mail. I was 5’1″ and 95 lbs until my junior year. I was bullied and occasionally pushed around. I THANK GOD for those bullies. And I thank God no one bothered to “rescue me.” Those struggles made me strong and taught me how to rely on myself and deal with adversity. As far as empathy goes: “*#$%#, you don’t know me.” I am one of the most giving and caring people she’d ever meet. Lame.
You want to see the real bullies? Spend a few hours over at White Girl Bleed a Lot watching videos of 6 to 30 blacks beating the snot out of one old White dude.
I for one am tired of all these "other" lifestyles and colors freely insulting White males and demanding we silently take the criticism or be branded a White Supremacist.
You don't like White civilization there is plenty of forest & jungle left in this world, GTF out.
We will not miss you ignorant azzez.
We built this.
We may send you food if you don't throw spears at us.

As a Southerner, because it’s hot as hell! CO has is a bit of a mecca for hikers/snowboarders/skiers/whitewater/etc, so of course they are going to have a high percentage.

Side note: you cannot be a Libertarian Socialist. No such thing can possibly exist. I am hoping you are trying to be ironic. Socialism, by definition, demands surrendering individual rights for the common good. It also cannot exist without a robust, powerful, and intrusive government.
Just another example of muddling the truth. A man can now identify as a woman, a white woman can identify as a black woman. Why can't a socialist identify as a Libertarian? I'm not saying she is one.
I don't know how I could not be a libertarian socialist...
He talks out of both sides of his mouth just like his hero, Lucifer.
They wouldn't let him use "Azz hole" as a screen name.
You can't be a "libertarian socialist" because it's a contradiction in terms. Just because Chompsky makes up left-wing drivel, doesn't mean that you have to be suckered by him.

Not every child loves their father. I will not speak of that. I will say that Osteen throws off a greasy vibe I’ve never liked. I believe him to be a Christ-profiteer, nothing more. He’s made a pretty penny. Tell me he’s living in a trailer and giving all his worldly goods to help the poor and hungry, and I’ll believe in him. A rich man cannot preach the gospel. Sorry, Jesus is explicit on that note.

Awww, looks at u. u is soooo tough. aren’t ya?! A man that loses a hand learns to live without it. It doesn’t mean he wouldn’t rather still have his hand. Fool.
 June 23, 2015 at 3:38pm
I lost my father in December 2013. I describe it as a piece of my heart died with him. You learn to live without them, just as a man who loses his right hand learns to live without it. But only a fool thinks that he doesn’t wish he still had it. Same thing.

Um…it’s the law? Anyone with a service animal can go anywhere. The restaurant cannot turn them away, and they will be lucky if the ACLU doesn’t come down on them like a ton of bricks (well…except for a vet is concerned, so maybe they won’t really care).
Anyone with a service animal can go anywhere?
Better reread the ADA.
I realize that, Fire. I have no lack of compassion for this particular situation. But, service dog allowances will become all dogs before long. They used to be for blind or hearing impaired. As we loosen the definition of the need for a service dog, within a few years the family pet will be under the restaurant table and in the hotel bed.. Do you trust everyone else's standards for cleanliness of their dog?
You argue that allowing Service Animals into restaurants paves the way for all dogs being allowed in...but Liberals attempt to tell me that by allowing two faggootts or lesbiens to get married will not lead to three or more getting married, no marriage to minors, relatives, etc., logic only works one way.

Definitions: are unsolved crimes counted? Is it based on convictions? Are plea bargains counted? Also degree (ie, pushing and shoving vs an MMA smackdown). Are they counting suicides? (Frequently, suicides and self-defense are lumped into homicides for these kinds of studies for obvious reasons). Are drug rapes counted towards violent rapes? etc etc etc. Also, it is well known that the NYC purposefully alters their reporting to give the appearance of lower crime rates. I’m from Brantley Co, Georgia. I visited Hartford, CT. I can tell you, I was much more concerned with my safety at ALL times in Hartford as opposed to Brantley County.

Notice the SHARP divide between state lines. Something royally screwy going on here. Virtually no rapes in NY? No…this is obviously some statistical or word play trick. This reminds me of the “All the Mexico gun cartels are armed with AR-15s bought in the USA.” Later? Fast and Furious. That didn’t make logical sense, and this doesn’t make logical sense either. Something real screwy going on.
So glad to read your post!!! I agree with you wholeheartedly. This map is skewed!!!

Don’t take the kids to the north slope of Alaska, they are getting slaughtered up there!!!1
Yes, this is completely idiotic.
Do you understand what per capita means?
There are a ton of people that live in NYC. There is a relatively low rate of violent crime, rapes, etc. as compared to the size of the population.
It's called a statistical variation inaccuracy. They taught us about it in Statistics 101 class, where people take data from places like New York City, which has millions of people, and try to compare it with tiny towns with just a few hundred people.
So let's say the crime data is "how many violent crimes per 100,000 people". Well, there might be 500 violent crimes per 100,000 people in New York. But if you live in a town with only 100 people, and two of them get into a fist fight, that's a crime rate of 2,000 violent crimes per 100,000 people when you plug in the data.
So that's why you get tiny towns in the middle of nowhere with 4 times the crime rate of places like New York City.
