    Republicans do need to articulate a vision. While what Democrats do is terrible (demagogue by promising the world with no way to implement or pay for those promises), when the Republicans actually do have a solution, they are terrible at making a case for it to the people. Sure the media trying to suppress their message, but that can’t be an excuse. I don’t think they are really trying hard enough since even non-Leftist media aren’t reporting any significant vision. Basically, the establishment Republican message is: “We aren’t those guys in the driver’s seat driving the country off a cliff, though we are passengers doing nothing to stop them except maybe slow them down slightly.”

    Personally, I would rather Obama play more golf, because then he isn’t using his pen and phone as much. I really mean that.

    I haven’t seen any indication that Obama cares about anything other than the “fundamental transformation of America”. He doesn’t seem to care that America or the dollar is financially sound. He doesn’t seem to care that US laws are faithfully executed. He would rather raise taxes on us than find any of the $200B/year in waste that the GAO estimates there is. In short, he has shown no interest in doing the actual job of US president.

    Juan Williams and Tamara Holder have the same effect on me. It is funny that Juan Williams’ son is a PR guy for the Republican Party on a national level.

    And it only took 19 people to bring the US to a standstill on 9/11/2001 and several days afterward.

    Good for Raven. While I do think it is ok for a person to identify with one’s heritage, Americans should understand the founding principles (I believe not many do). Hopefully, each will agree with those principles. Far too many Americans are ignorant or misinformed about the founding principles. The left argues that the founding principles are invalid because the Founders were not perfect people. If the author of anything needs to be perfect for the thing authored to be valid, there is only one author that has anything valid. (Not Karl Marx.) Of course it is absurd to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but that is what the Left does, but only when it suits their purpose, not because that principle is actually valid. Otherwise, they could never embrace any principles or their icons either. (Ex. Margaret Sanger, Bill Clinton)

    This incident shows that the human body can be a deadly weapon. I have studied Asian martial arts for 20 and understand it that way too. So I tell people who claim that Zimmerman had no reason to shoot Martin because Martin was unarmed or that the Ferguson policeman had no reason to shoot Brown because he was unarmed, I tell them their assumption is false. The human body can be a deadly weapon. More people are killed each year in the US by being beaten to death than killed using rifles. Trayvon Martin’s mount position on Zimmerman could have easily killed Zimmerman if allowed the chance. Brown was so big a strong it wouldn’t be difficult at all for him to kill someone quickly empty handed. 20 years of martial arts experience isn’t necessary. Note also that several people have been killed in the “Knockout Game”, which uses only one strike. Just a few days ago a teen killed another with a single punch; the fall is the direct cause of death but would not have happened without that single punch.

    Though I agree, I won’t deny people the pleasure if they actually do like baseball. I did like it when I was a pre-teen. I will mention that at the one pro baseball game I attended in person, I noticed that it seemed a very significant portion of the crowd were there just to socialize, not actually watch the game. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that at all. It just isn’t my cup of tea.

    I believe it is true that people would be horrified if they saw the images. However, I also believe that people become desensitized after seeing a few more. For example, I was completely horrified after seeing the scene in the first Godfather movie where Michael Corleone shots a guy in the head at point blank range, but now scenes like that have no where near the same effect.

    I agree with the British paper not wanting to be a terrorist propaganda platform by publishing images from the video. I don’t believe it is the same issue as not publishing images from the Nazi crimes. With the Nazi crimes, people didn’t know or weren’t sure they were true. With ISIS, there is no doubt. I don’t even think the ISIS apologists such as those appearing on Hannity really doubt ISIS’ barbarity, in spite of their claims otherwise.

    Even with a teleprompter, his oratory skills are way overrated. Watch some Reagan speeches to see a truly skilled orator. Even the Left acknowledged that Reagan is “The Great Communicator”. Without the propaganda ministry, a.k.a. mainstream media, telling us that Obama is the greatest speaker ever, how many of us would even consider him to be good?

    Obama is constantly playing word games. He prefer to tell the “technical truth” over lying where what he says is technically true but misleading to lead you to believe what the the unvarnished truth would not. For example, he might be telling the truth that this year is the slowest increase in 50 years. So if it increased by 0% this year while it went up 100% last year, he would be telling the truth though the statement is actually irrelevant, but he misled you into thinking what the full truth would not. He does this type of thing all the time. People do get the truth eventually, but after the event and Obama is spared the immediate embarrassment.

    And Obama and Holder think we don’t like them because they are Black. No. We don’t like them because they are dishonest radical Leftists.

    Amen! I have been wondering the same. Since trained professionals are also getting sick, I don’t have confidence they have a full handle on how Ebola is transmitted.

  • [12] October 2, 2014 at 12:40pm

    Our governments want to tell us what kinds of light bulbs to use, what kinds of cars to drive (and encouraging us not to drive at all), where to live, which words we should and shouldn’t use, what our children should eat in school, in what types of bags to bring our groceries home, etc. but when it comes to Ebola they trust us to do the right thing. Great, isn’t it?

    I have said for years now that Obama only cares about his “fundamental transformation of America”. All else is a distraction. He only pays enough attention to other matters to appease critics that might otherwise distract from the Transformation.

    I have noticed long ago that every time security is penetrated it is because security rules were not all followed. Things like that apply to most things in life. While breaking a rule usually doesn’t result in a disaster, but the disasters that do happen wouldn’t have happened if rules hadn’t been broken.

    But this time, it is an organization funded by a self-hating Jew (Soros).

    I have felt the same as Glenn for a few years now. I also feel that Americans would have gone back to sleep if Romney had won in 2012. But I think we the people have had enough lessons now. Our nation will be completely fundamentally transformed (a.k.a. destroy) if Hillary R-C becomes president.

    This is why I am thoroughly disgusted by the mainstream media. Their goal is social change (Leftist change at that). They are not interested in informing the people. Their goal is to give the people the opinions they believe are correct, not present the cold fact and let the people decide what they mean.

    The dance looks really tame to me. It can only get less tame if Sadie were not so pretty or she wore a burka. I also think the fuss is all hype, no substance.

    I used to listen to NPR and have even donated to my local PBS station even though I knew it was left leaning. They do have some entertaining programming like Car Talk. My turning point was when they disparaged the TEA Party having posted a really insulting cartoon towards the TEA party on their web site. I complained but got no response. What made me turn off NPR/PBS forever was an interview with Van Jones where the interviewer fawned over that communist. NPR/PBS is not getting another penny from me except what the government confiscates from me to give to them. Even that I want to stop. NPR/PBS can go find their own money.

    I heard an interview with Mr. Zamperini. He said if you take the religious aspect out of his story, there is no story. Leave it to Hollywood to gut a deep story and leave it an empty shell, particularly when the story doesn’t fit their Leftist bend.
