O’Reilly has an ego that will not allow him to be wrong. He is about as stubborn as they come and simply will not admit BO is at minimum a socialist. He would be sort of right if he said America would not knowingly elect a socialist (although that now remains to be seen given the number of takers may now outnumber the producers), but our current president has demonstrated over and over his willingness to do as much as he can to have government take over the energy industry and his method(s) of basically making de-facto employees of millions of undeserving and fraudulent on the public dole…which are not to be confused with those having genuine need.
I will always be grateful to O’Reilly for creating The Factor, but he went off the rails long ago.

If Apple thinks migrating to a Lightning jack is going to make it better somehow, that is one thing.
However…for my lone voice among a multitude of a zillion iPhone owners I can say that I don’t want my phone any thinner just for the sake of of it. It is already a bit flimsy as it is…(I had to have it replaced because the chassis was slightly bent)…but even if that weren’t the case, it’s just thin enough already…I like to FEEL something in my hand when I’m holding it. If we’re getting a vote…or if anyone is actually listening to feedback…if there is new space achieved because of enginnering and technology, I’d rather see them use it to make the phone with a battery that lasts longer.
+1 for the longer battery!
I'm not really pro or against the move. If they hand me a waterproof phone sans the 3.5mm jack I'll take it. Plus a 3.5mm jack on a lightning cable doesn't bug me much. For people that rely on that jack I can see it being problematic though. Apple cut optical drives and hard drive bays from their computers so I don't think they'd give dropping the jack a second thought.
You will eat that cat poop!
Here are some things Steve Jobs has said and some I imagine he would say if he were alive today. "The problem is not the iPhone antenna, you are holding it wrong." "A mouse doesn't need more than one button." "A smart phone should not be wider than 4 inches." "A big fat finger is much better than a stylus." "Developers really should re-write their apps to run on a tablet or phone or desktop. Apple users are too dumb to handle a smart application that can adapt to the device capabilities." "You will use whatever connector we give you and stop whining."

While it is true the game has become less fun to watch because of all the penalties, the root cause is all the litigation against the NFL. While I am no fan of the commissioner, (quite the opposite actually), he is tasked with doing ‘something’ about all the lawsuits. If the NFL does nothing, some jury is going to award a zillion $ to the litigants. Other than taking Shakespeare’s advice in regard to lawyers, I’m not sure what can be done to untangle the mess. I’d love for the game to go back to being played how it used to be, but I also want players to have a relatively healthy life when they are finished playing.

What are any of the big-talking Senators and Reps doing about stopping this now?
How could even this SCOTUS not recognize that ‘shall not be infringed’ has been usurped in both the spirit and letter of the Constitution.
Cruz and others hold elected positions NOW…and should be doing whatever is in their power to refuse to bow to abuses like this. If they won’t do what they are empowered to do NOW, how can we rely on their word for later when they say ‘IF I am…then I will do such and such…’?
DID YOU READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE? And, as I have said repeatedly, the President can do nothing without CONGRESS. Cruz and Grassley's bill got filibustered. At least, Ted Cruz did something and the DEMOCRATS trashed it, as usual. STOP PICKING ON ONE PERSON. Start picking on those in Congress who would defeat righteous acts for We, the People: vote the people out of Congress who are PRO-ABORTION, PRO-PLANNED PARENTHOOD, ANTI-GUN, ANTI ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT!
THE REAL PROBLEM IS CONGRESS. We, the people need to get rid of those Democrats AND Republicans that are pro-Obama. GET RID OF THEM. VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE.
Those pro-Obama, anti-Constitutional politicians are sinking this country into the slime.

If his polling numbers showed him to be leading, there’d be no way he would be mentioning term limits and a balanced budget. Why weren’t these subjects part of his agenda when he first declared for candidacy?
Once desperation sets in, only then will the candidates finally bring up the important subjects that the electorate wants addressed.

“His first impulse always is to take rights away from law-abiding citizens, and it’s wrong, and to use executive powers he doesn’t have is a pattern that is quite dangerous.”
Easily the best statement Jeb (or anyone else) has made that articulates the feelings of those that believe in both the spirit and letter of the Constitution. It is a shame that the senators and representatives we have in place haven’t jumped on this sentiment from Day 1.
His comment about someone shouting out during a moment of silence was OK…but it was at that point he should have kept his mouth shut instead of editorializing about the cause and effect of prejudice. It sounds like something a progressive would say before they start blaming America.

The Blaze seems to hang on every word this guy has to say. What exactly makes him so worthy of print every time he blathers on against someone he hates?
He seems like just another hateful, intolerant leftist that wants everything and anything related to morality, faith, and the Bill of Rights eliminated.

Giving credit to Boehner for ‘winning’ the majority makeup in place is all I need to hear.
This is the next excuse-making apologist in line for no other reason than it is his ‘turn’.
We need someone that is NOT in the current power structure and someone that is willing…no…EAGER to point out the failings of Boehner & Co. by demonstrating a willingness to REPRESENT THE BASE.

from Bill.. “What is truly astounding is the woman’s ignorance,” he said.
What is really astounding is that Bill continues to misunderstand that is is NOT ignorance at all, it is nothing more than leveraging the Dems ability to intentionally use false information while enjoying the protection of a duplicitous media that will allow it to go unchecked and unchallenged.
Bill is a decent guy. He is just naive…and that Harvard ego of his seems to keep him from acknowleging what most plainly see.
Eggs Ackley! And we should add that Bill refuses to see the pure evil in rat politics. He knows what evil is as in criminal behavior he just refuses to see the evil rampant in the rats.

Outrageous, offensive, evil…etc. All those words come to mind but don’t mean much since they are contained in our little suppressed corner of the world.
What is actually needed is some sort of sanctioned oversight board whose responsibility is to review and make sure things like revisionist history, partisan ideology, and anti-American propaganda don’t make it into the textbooks in the first place.
Additionally, it would be peachy if those that abuse their access and authority regarding content and editing are identified and held accountable. Once this stuff makes it to print there is almost nothing that can be done about it. Lefties know this and gleefully enable the inclusion of such content..knowing that at least to this point, there is no reason to fear accountability.

Shouldn’t he be referred to as Wrongly convicted Congressman rather than Former convict Congressman?

It appears I have stumbled across the source of the Democrat’s playbook.
A scene from the 1967 movie “Guide For the Married Man” simply has to be the template for what has become their staple strategy.
Ha Ha best laugh of the month.
You are correct. Ha Ha..
I cant stop laughing.

Viewers should understand what they are in for when viewing any program on NBC. The network is run by committed Leftists that have made the decision to take every opportunity to forward the Leftist agenda. They were certainly not going to waste the opportunity to hijack a captive sports audience that in most cases wants politics kept away from sports. Their ideology permeates all programming…certainly the news division…sports…drama…even sitcoms. If it weren’t for Sunday Night Football, I’d never tune to anything on NBC.

How long before ‘Republican’ Governor Christie signs legislation that outlaws the use of hot oil as a weapon?
and/or ANY weapon that does not have fire (black powder) power.......
Nah, he likes fried food WAY too much for that.

If I was to bet, I’d put my money on her getting Hannity’s slot. Despite his ratings…which are very good…Fox has noticeably moved away from the right…and Hannity is way too conservative for them at this point.
I think you have an excellent point. I at first thought that O'Reilly might be retiring since I have detected that he seems to be increasingly taking center positions thereby indicating his decreased concern for his right audience. I personally like Kelly, but I must admit that she has a caustic presentation that indicates she is impressed with her own intelligence to the point that borders on arrogance. However, in no way can she compete with the sense of superiority exhibited by O'Reilly.
Do you mean the same Hannity that has Karl Rove on 2 or 3 times a week?? The same Hannity that has mass murderer Donald Rumsfeld on when ever he can?? The same Hannity that gets a swelling when he speaks of war criminal Cheney??
Hannity is the poster child for RINOs
Crimsontrace I can't let that go. I'm sure you've never served a day in your life. I'd take Donald R. or Dick Cheney over what we have in the WH right now. Lets see didn't Obama say he approves every drone strike? Like the one today that killed seventeen innocent people in a country that we are not at war with (Pakistan)? I'm just an old retired MSG who fought in the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. Until you get the stones to serve this country don't denigrate those who have.

This is all nice to hear…and he makes the case for his decision quite clearly…but…
The points used to support his conversion are not new and I presume he knew them before today. Why then, was he a Democrat in the first place?
I don’t ask that question with any agenda or attempt to discredit…I really would just like to know what kept him a Dem all this time?
February 27, 2013 at 10:52am
OK…John Boehner has made his obligatory statement of ‘outrage’.
Now what, Mr. Speaker? Is your job regarding this matter finished?
Step up, for crying out loud.

Surely there is some connection from this depiction of the Tea Party to Linda McMahon.
She has run and lost twice as a Republican candidate from Connecticut. Is the Tea Party widely accepted in the state of CT? If I were to guess…or bet…I’d say she is closer to the elites in the Republican Party by a long shot.
