    Isn’t funny that threats are always wrapped up in a nice neat number that can be played on the news? ’100 ISIS fighters are already here’, for example. While I and you know that this is just for a sound bite the threat itself is real as it has been for several decades now. I do not care who is president (Bush, Clinton, Obama, the local dog catcher) it is not productive to blame this on a political party. The bottom line is that we must (1) be able to secure our country within the limits of our liberties (2) recognize and accept that the threat is both real, dedicated, resourceful and SMART (3) have contingencies for WHEN we fail to stop them (4) be willing to take the fight to them and those that shelter them by non lethal and lethal means (5) make all Americans understand that this is a fight to the death, theirs or ours and it WILL be ugly, it WILL be bloody, we WILL make mistakes and it will not be finished overnight.

    Anyone find it ironic that the aircraft came from the carrier George HW Bush?

    Also 500 pounders are mere firecrackers compared to what a F/A-18 could have carried. Depending on flight restrictions they could have dropped much heavier munitions. And why just 2 aircraft? I understand the need to maintain security for the carrier but only 2 aircraft? If you are going to send only 2 aircraft, please make one a B-52 and the other an AC-130 next time.

    I am in the military. I am an American. I believe in the law. I have a family. The active, guard and reserves make up about 2% of the population?If you add in ALL the law enforcement agencies I’m willing to bet the combined total is less than 4% of the population. So 96% of the population which includes generations of vetrans far out numbers the ‘bad guys’ in your scenerio. Additionally of the ENTIRE military, most personnel are NOT combat arms (ie grunts) but rather cooks and clerical etc(ie REMFs/FOBbits). So do you really think that a Coast Guard dental hygienist tech is going to kick down your door, drag you out into the street and line you up against a wall? Do you realise that the military nor any law enforcement agency produce the supplies (ie fuel, oil, ammunition, parts or food) needed to maintain an operation? You know who does? Part of that 96% does. Your doomsday scenerio is rife with holes in its logic. This country is too well armed, too independent thinking and too large for our small military (a lot of which is at sea or deployed in other countries) to be able to conduct such an operation.

    Why did the attempt to infiltrate in broad daylight? Not tactically smart.

    I wonder if
    (A) They ran out of goats
    (B) They ran out of donkeys
    (C) They had to sit through numerous DADT (don’t ask don’t tell) briefings
    (D) Now thier SHARP advisor will have to go through more certifications
    (E) Who am I kidding, these guys are savages and they will rape a boy just as quick as they would rape a woman.

    Why is it that people ‘take responsibility’ only when they get caught? How about they ‘take responsibility’ and act like decent citizens so that they will not have to ‘take responsibility’ later? I know, it is a radical new concept called being a law abiding citizen, but people like this should try it.

    Soooooo water is sentient? Is water mad at us for consuming it, taxing it and using it in our toilets? Is this why the seas are rising? Orrrrr is she just a bubble head?

    As soon as that chopper got clear there should have been 8 B-52′s loaded to the gills with dumb bombs dropping on that entire area. Then this video would never have seen the light of day but more importantly we would have erased several of their (Al Qeda , Haqanni, whom ever) fighters from the battlefield. But sadly I do not make these calls and neither do the guys on the ground.

    Perhaps this is the logic:
    1) Go to economically depressed liberal area.
    2) Set up shop.
    3) Hire as many people as you can.
    4) When the next gun control type political figure for the area comes up for election he/she will have to balance the misguided gun control policies against the desires of the newly employed (and now creating a tax revenue) people.
    5) Expand until you have put gun rights (CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS) so far out of political danger in that area that the rights of the citizens in that area will not be threatened by NYC style gun right infringement.
    6) Set up shop in another liberal, economically depressed area and repeat.

    What do you think? Possible?

    To the government of the state of Louisiana,
    You represent a state. That state is filled with citizens, your citizens. While you wish to provide the best you can for your citizens I ask that you do not bow down to any privately owned company. If you do this then you become beholden to that company and not your citizens. You can not serve two masters. The people of Louisiana are your master, no one else.

    Ever open a bank account, use a debit card, apply for a job, legally drive a car, apply for a loan, start a lease, join the military, get a passport, become a citizen, get into an R rated movie or purchase alcohol when you looked too young to? If you did any of these things in your life I’m willing to bet you were asked for a form of photo ID. Why is it the most important thing we can do as citizens that holds the greatest responsibility to our country (and other countries that deal with us) we shirk away from insuring that the person attempting to vote is A) of age to vote B) a citizen C) whom they claim to be? Votes have consequences that are far reaching and we treat the validity of the voter with the same care as someone buying gum.

    I don’t speak the language but I imagine part of the dialogue went something like this;

    INTERVIEWER- What is bad about this war?

    KID- Well I would say one of the worst parts is when an explosion occurs behind me and my friends and the A-hole adults I’m talking with outrun me and my friends to cover.

    I admit it’s been a minute since I’ve looked at a globe but is ‘Nordic’ the right term for this storm. By the time lapse weather map it looks like this storm advanced from west south west to east north east. Are Nordic countries in Europe (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark)? Unless things have changed Europe is to the east and at no point touch the Pacific ocean. Did a bunch of ‘undocumented’ Vikings set up their own country in Baja California or something? Am I missing the point or did my public school education fail me? Maybe the storm is a result of thousands upon thousands of Nordic Track exercise machines being used at once. Could it be because of that cr-appy movie THOR taking place in New Mexico be the justification for the naming of the storm? I just don’t get the naming of the whole thing.

    Unless there were laws or rules broken on university property then the university should do the smart thing and recognize that these citizens are allowed to act in any legal way they wish and should have nothing to comment on. The university is being paid to provide an education, not comment on students personal activities. If laws or rules were broken on school property then take action against the offenders otherwise mind your own business.

    Did he back up this statement with facts? Exact numbers, or locations or names or even a location to get the information to verify his claim? No? Just throw out generalities and watch your You Tube counter climb higher, get a few more songs downloaded. I think this guy is talented, I do, but he is spreading misinformation. Mack, stick to writing/singing/composing music unless you have the facts to back your claims.

    How do you figure this Tom? I just can’t fathom any sane person thinking this let alone saying it.

    So, if those that complained changed MUSLIM to MORMON would they still complain?
