How about following the Constitution? The question is, what contract have we American’s signed that did away with “due process”?
How about starting with Amendment 5?
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
And how about the IRS seizing our assets every April 15th?? How 'bout writing a bill for THAT???
@flyingrobots, you don't seriously believe that the constitution is still in effect, do you?
Their is a lot of injustice going on in our justice department. Think about that and determine if we need to take this country back. How do we do that, for starters don't vote for the same SOB in every election unless you know for a fact they deserve to be in office. We have to get involved in the system and know what's going on, another thing lacking. Tell everyone. Good Luck!

What do you do? How do you help? How do you stop such cruelty and evil? We can’t even get ourselves unified on common sense issues. Our bank is busted, our military strength has been weakened. Do we demand that we send our troops in there? Who cleans up that mess, Iran? Israel? The US? Canada? Who?
These ISIS monsters need to be dealt with, and quickly. But how do we rally the US in such a way that we go? We have weakened ourselves because of our disobedience, and now others suffer because of it. If we were truly strong, this would not be happening.

No ones above the law. Throw the book at her and lock her and her cronies away. Then trace it back to the White House and do a little spring cleaning, baby!
EXCEPT THE DEMOCRATS!!!---THEY CARE ABOUT PEOPLE, SO LYING IS ACCEPTABLE---VOMIT!!!!
Supoena her to testify, have the sergeant at arms arrest her and take her to jail for contempt and leave her till she rots. I'm sure she would suddenly die before she decided to change her mind.

There are consequences for defending yourself. Sometimes they aren’t pleasant. Its just the way it is. When you make the choice to carry a firearm (and I support that right) it doesn’t mean there aren’t other considerations that are at play.
Anyone who has run a restaurant knows that the pay, hours and working conditions don’t always attract the cream of the crop type people. So how do you judge who or who can’t carry a gun while on shift? There is a lot of liability when you have an employee, especially one that has to drive around town. Now you not only allow or her to drive, but you also allow them to carry a gun? How do you minimize your risk as a company owner?
I am glad this lady had the means and smarts to protect herself. I also have to support the restaurants policy. It is their company, they can make any policies they want to make and enforce them. They have their reasons, and in this litigious world, I understand when a company has a no gun policy.
Until we can change the culture, until we can make it common sense for people to be responsible for their own actions, this is what we have to live with.
I do not support any policy that denies employees from carrying for defense of themselves and others.
You're looking at it through the eyes of a chicken who hides behind lawyers.
Honestly, the employer is not 100% responsible for the actions of an employee.
Should an employee decide to start shooting all over the place, it is up to those around that person to stop said person on a shooting spree or to go into cover and try to get help.
Personal responsibility is what is needed and everyone, who is employed where ever they are, will not all go on shooting sprees. Most people have enough common sense and sense of responsibility to not just fire off their guns all over the place.
"I also have to support the restaurants policy." Take a stand dude

The leaders we have in Washington are a reflection of us. If there is division in Washington, there already is division amongst us. The degree and magnitude of that division is also a reflection of us. If what Glen Beck predicts comes true, then the seeds results of what we experience were planted long before the crisis actually manifests itself.
We have to improve ourselves, we have to build bridges to those who disagree, we have to connect with others where there is common ground. That is the only way we can prevent this crisis from occurring or at least to recovery from it quickly if it does.

I am so disappointed in the majority of the comments here. This is the French Revolution rearing its ugly head again. Guys/Gals! He’s talking about helping human beings who are caught in the cross fire of this issue for crying out loud!
Glen is not a traitor, he is not giving in on this issue, he wants to help people. We don’t live in Rwanda, we don’t overlook human suffering, no matter why, what, who or how. It doesn’t matter. We don’t allow people to suffer.
This is nuts, now I know why the conservative movement is frowned upon, I am ashamed of some of you people. Stop this kind of negative crazy talk and help Glen help these folks.
We’ll sort this out at some point, but we don’t need to be a part of the growing Cold Civil War we are starting to enter into. This isn’t going to end good if we don’t become more meek and caring.
A refugee is a person running from something like a war. These people are not running from, but running TOO a guaranteed WELFARE lifestyle, far better than the one the left behind.
It's time these people FIX THE PROBLEMS IN THEIR COUNTRIES, instead of running over our border expecting us to take care of them from cradle to grave, and while we are doing that, they turn around and protest against WHITE PEOPLE. They will be marching in the next MAY DAY celebration with their marxist flags. I have no compassion for these people. As for the children, HOW is a teddy bear going to help the lice, scabies, TB, etc that they have? How is a soccer ball going to make them warm at night?
This problem is the result of their commie governments running their society into the ground. It's what WE WILL BECOME soon, because that is what our CORRUPT CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT IS DOING TO US!
Beck going down there with soccer balls and teddy bears will only result in Glenn Beck getting much needed publicity since he is losing his base. He needs to kiss up to the LEFT so that he will get new FANS!
Sorry Kevin your are WRONG!! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out!!!
Said like a true sheep. Blahhh

I have one of the new Z10 phones, it is a great device. The OS they use is very secure. BlackBerry is one of those phones that the NSA has a hard time with.
i am really sad to see them have such a hard time, I hope they pull out of it and make a come back. We need this phone. The security that surrounds in this world of hackers and the NSA should make this a valued company in the eyes of others. They are one of the few companies that did not let the NSA have free reign to their networks….

Very moving, stung me a little, I realized just how selfish I can be. So many opportunities to do good, and I miss most of them….uggg…have…to…wake…up….
Try doing one good deed a day - just one - even if it's for a stranger at the mall! Works for me!
An easy "Good deed for the day" is giving a smile to that elder person you might meet in your daily travels. Give it a try and I'll wager you will get a smile in return and a look that tells you you made that person's day.
Oh! Almost forgot! If someone makes eye contact with you in a public place - greet them! Good morning; Hi!; Good afternoon!
You won't always get a response - no big deal. But if you're consistent, you will literally watch your neighborhood change for the better, as others get into it. It takes time - sometimes years, but it's contagious!
These are things we did as a matter of common courtesy when I was knee-high to Jiminy Cricket.
Great advice it works for me as well.

For me the destroying of the institutions that we currently have through force and violence is not an option. The resulting anarchy and fragmentation of society would greatly reduce the possibility of rebuilding it. Don’t forget that it almost didn’t work the first time around. What makes anyone think that a rebellion or revolution would guarantee that we could rebuild a constitutional republic as envisioned by our founders.
No thanks, we can fix what we got, it will be hard and we will suffer during that process. But as I always tell people. If I had to take a bullet for the most hated politician in our government, I would. We aren’t protecting those knuckle heads, we’re protecting something far greater and precious.
June 30, 2013 at 10:27am
That is absolutely crazy talk. From a rebellion standpoint, it would be like bows and arrows against machine guns, you would loose. Both the shooting war and the public support front.
No, this is not how this gets fixed and I’m tired of hearing about people who want to start shooting. Start learning to speak, start learning how to persuade, start learning how to learn. The way to fix this was established by our forefathers, and they bled so we wouldn’t have to.
It needs to be fixed, but not at the end of a gun.

I understand but disagree with SBC. Same gender attraction is a real problem. Excluding young men that are struggling with it isn’t going to help them. If they are able to be remain abstinent, why shouldn’t they be included?

My mother was killed when I was eight, in a automobile accident. My Grandfather was a state patrol officer in California, and each month a CHIPS magazine arrived at his home, in it was chronicled that moth’s automobile accidents. It was pretty gruesome.
I wonder what the public’s perception would be about flying if the images in that magazine were published on a daily basis.
I’ll take flying small planes over driving any day (weather permitting).

You just contradicted yourself. If there is a barter system, don’t you think it would be easier to trade with something that every recognizes as being of value?
So what are going to barter? Okay, seeds and food will be needed, but what if I have enough seeds and food and you want something of mine? What do you have that I need? What if I need some copper wire and you don’t have any? What I need some children’s clothes and you don’t have any? What if I need a wrench and you don’t have one?
So let’s use the wrench as an example. You will have to find someone with a wrench and wants what you have. Do you realize what a mess this would be and hard it would be to acquire what is needed?
Gold is something that will always buy stuff. I can take my gold across the country or the world and it’s value will be recognized. As long as we can validate that the gold is pure and isn’t fake, you will always be able to get what you need with gold and silver.

It is important to point out that our great technology requires a massive amount of people with knowledge. While this type of thing may appear (on the surface) to be a waste as its value cannot be measured at this point in time, the long term value of people experimenting and learning is vast. Even if it is with current technology.
We HAVE to have people learn these things, and they need opportunities to do so in a substantive way. Those that really want to learn these things will show it by their relentless pursuit of it. This was a fantastic demonstration. We need this kind of creativity and desire in all of us.
Hats off to you Arturo (and all those that helped), well done my friend.
It's not really the learning so much in this project. Rather, it is publicity. Inspiring kids to get into "STEM" (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) studies. Which is more valuable to the individual and to society: a certificate in HVAC repair or a PhD in "Women's Studies"?

The problem is that ALL traffic would have to go through the Utah facility. There is no way that is going to happen. There would have to be a NSA “listening post” scattered though out the entire country. That is how networks work. Packets don’t go “everywhere” when they are sent, they take the shortest route possible.
Think about it, if they do their data analysis in real-time, and they were to grab every packet, these monster supercomputers would have to be all over the place or you would have to build a network with as much capacity as the current commercial networks owned by all the different providers in order to move that data to where the super computers are.
The scale of the operation necessary to listen to everything is beyond comprehension. You don’t realize just how much data is being slammed everywhere, and to think that they would set things up so that it would go through one pipe in the middle of the Utah desert is not realistic.

The only problem with your assertion is that in the last 100 years, Iran hasn’t been attacked.
I agree that we are over stretched militarily, we do need to pull back. But I think the thoughtful question that needs to be asked is, don’t we afford ourselves a level of protection by having a presence throughout the world?
In the days when you had to send ships and an army over to a country to attack them, perhaps leaving all our firepower at home made sense. But how do we protect ourselves when folks can hurt us remotely (i.e. nuclear tipped missiles, etc).
