    I think bare female shoulders are quite sexy. Am I the only one that feels that way? However, that dress meets my standard of modesty. But I am not going to make a big deal about that school’s standard. They aren’t stoning anyone or throwing acid in anyone’s face.

    You assume it was stolen to be a pet. Perhaps it was stolen for reasons that are not good. I met someone in Micronesia who told me that while he was attending college in Oregon, he and his friends stole a dog and ate it. (Dog meat is prized in his culture.) He also mentioned they got sick. He said he thinks the good treatment Americans give dogs make them unsuitable for eating.

    I am thoroughly tired of the Obama administration telling me what I should think, especially when it is contrary to the data right in front of my eyes. AND THEY DO SO CONSTANTLY. It seems that not a day passes without the Obama administration propaganda machine telling me to think something that conflicts with the data before my eyes.

    I keep saying that the United States is becoming more and more like Maoist China. Propaganda being spewed daily by the administration and the mainstream media is yet another datum. It has been going on long before Obama, but it has kicked into hyperdrive under Obama.

    I second that about anticipation from experience. There was a time that I didn’t even know I flinched until I shot my .223 immediately after shooting my .308. At .308, while not painful, it still delivers a good punch. A .223 has hardly any recoil. The fact that I flinched was obvious. I took care of that quickly. I just had to be made aware I was doing it.

    If Japan had the capability, they should rain hell on ISIS. ISIS has to be made to hurt badly. I hope Japan still has some bushido.

    Back in the 1980s a popular terrorist technique in Lebanon was to kidnap foreigners and hold them for ransom. They even had the nerve to kidnap a negotiator. They got real ballsy and kidnapped some Soviets. Big mistake, as they found out. The Soviets captured a relative of the terrorist leader; castrated him, killed him, and gave the body with man’s testicles in his mouth to the terrorists. Those terrorists never touched another Soviet.

    While that might be “cruel and unusual punishment” and I am not advocating such actions, it does demonstrate that they have limits, that they can be intimidated, contrary to the image they want us to believe. I do suggest finding that limit they find unacceptable and use it.

    You obviously don’t understand the cost of production. Most of the cost is not the materials, especially with low volume items. The vast majority of the cost is the R&D, tooling costs, QA costs. The materials is a very small part of the cost. That goes for anything. That is why a Ferrari costs $300k yet the company loses money. If a Honda Accord only sold 200 at the current selling price, Honda would be losing a huge amount of money on it. The cost of a medicinal drug is mainly for the R&D and conforming to regulations, not the cost of materials. Get it?

    You are mistaken that a nuclear sub costs more than a fighter jet. Go back and look at the numbers more carefully.

    These politicians, consultants, lobbyists, etc. can yak all they want. I DON’T TRUST WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT COMMON CORE BECAUSE OF WHAT I SEE HAPPENING IN MY CHILDREN’S SCHOOL DISTRICT. The CC proponents say, “Why all the fuss about Common Core. It is simply a rigorous national standard.” Bull*hit. After CC was implemented in my children’s school district and BECAUSE of Common Core, the highest level of math offered in the district’s middle schools dropped by two levels. My daughter told me that she was told by some teachers that they are glad they aren’t math teachers because of the damage Common Core imposes. She told me that math teachers are upset.

    Don’t buy the Common Core proponents’ bull*hit that CC is only about implementing a rigorous national standard. It is far more than that and the rigorous part of the statement is false from what I have seen.

    It is really all about Marxist/Progressive brainwashing of our youth; hammering into their heads equality of outcomes, not equality under the law. Sports is inherently free market capitalism: everyone is equal under the law, the best performer wins, there are winners and losers. Sports is an embodiment of what the Marxist/Progressive hates. If they had their way, sports would be banned. So they “progress” their way to their goals. Emasculating sports, as they are with fuss over blow outs, is just one step.

    At least Mr. Beckel is one of the very few that calls out Islamists, unlike 99.99% of the Left.

    I didn’t know that SpaceX had progressed passed the “science experiment” stage and are now providing a commercial service. Congrats to them!

    Sure, Maher has the right in this country to say as he pleases. People also have the right to behave like a complete *sshole, as Maher often does, but should they?

    It irritates me when the media and protestors say, “unarmed so and so was shot by police”, suggesting that so and so can’t be deadly dangerous. I have studied martial arts and know the unarmed can be deadly. I have also read stats that said each year, many more people are killed by the “unarmed” than those wielding rifles.

    While boxers and MMA athletes make it appear that the human body can take a lot of punishment, the normal human cannot. Boxers and MMA fighters are highly conditioned and can take punishment that would literally kill the typical person. Note that several victims of the “knockout game” died and they were hit by only one punch. An unarmed person determine to beat the cr*p out of you has a fair chance of killing you, especially a 300 pound giant of a man or someone that has you mounted with your head against concrete (Trayon Martin situation). The latter situation doesn’t need a big strong guy to be deadly. That position has the potential of delivering a lot of energy to your head and with your head against concrete, your head will absorb more of that energy. It is basic physics.

    Trey Gowdy and Louie Gohmert are my top two and would be happy with either. Both are reasonably conservative articulate and thus capable of making their case to the House and the people.

    Boehner is neither conservative or articulate. I see no value at all for Boehner being reelected as Speaker. I believe the same is true of McConnell. Boehner and McConnell are excellent connivers, but that is a quality sought by Dems and the establishment GOP, not conservatives. And that is not a quality needed to improve our nation and the world.

    If Boehner were a man of honor, he would not seek reelection to the speakership. The only thing he has advanced is his own career at the expense (literally as well as figuratively) of the nation.

    Let’s assume the story is true. This is what happens when there is no to little competition – not just competition for customers, but competition for employees as well.

    I have doubts about the story, especially the treatment of employees. Unless the economy is so bad that there is no work elsewhere to be found (which could be the case), why wouldn’t employees walk or have productivity so bad that Comcast would be in danger of going out of business. At the very least, I would expect high employee churn. We still have relative freedom here. The only thing to stop people from putting up with abuse as employees is a rotten job market. (I will say that I found the job market to be not good – the worst of my career and I am 52 – while I was job searching last year.)

    And that is the reason for the Left’s constant assault on religion – it is to destroy American society which they despise. It is part of the “fundamental transformation of America” effort.

    I remember when the UFC first started and Royce Gracie kept beating classically trained martial artists, some of which were quite larger. I am also classically trained. I can tell from this Mr. Gracie that they have studied and understand well their opponents and their opponents’ tactics and have full control of applying their art to do whatever they want to do. They can do exactly the amount of harm they choose. Impressive. That is mastery.

    I doubt that all pedophiles “chose” to be pedophiles. I doubt all necrophiliacs chose to be necrophiliacs. I doubt all those into bestiality chose that too. Larry King’s question is really irrelevant. There have been studies showing a genetic link to vulnerability to alcoholism. Does that mean alcoholics should just accept they are alcoholics and do nothing about it?

    With the Left, all that matters is advancing the “cause”. It literally doesn’t matter how many millions of lives are taken in the process, as history has shown. So what does it matter (at least to the Left) that a single person is slandered?

    That attitude that the Danish ambassador states (holding Israel’s neighbors to a different standard because their are “inferior”), I have felt for the last 3 decades the Left (Democrats in particular) espouses the same attitude towards American ethnic minorities while pretending to be champions of American ethnics minorities. As a member of an American ethnic minority, I have always felt insulted by that attitude.

    Latinos and Asians are more conservative than Whites, on average, yet they voted for Obama in droves. My hypothesis of why is that too many have bought into the idea that the GOP hates them, not that they agree with the principles of the Democrat Party.
