    Gag. I just threw up. The saddest part is that you are correct.

    I cannot stand him. I flip the channel just so I don’t hear his voice…. or mute it till he is gone. I don’t have a problem with hearing all sides of an argument, but there is just something about him that radiates stupidity and grinds on my last nerve. People portray him as being so intelligent, but I don’t see it. His reasoning process confuses the crap out of me.

    You know – the message was awesome, and that young man really showed a true heart for the Lord. I believe that while there was much there for everyone, we never know if there was even just one person God was speaking to. Being able to trust God no matter what is such a wonderful and empowering way to live.

    ME TOO! Love me some Alabama. I have been saying for years “Thank God we are not citified!”

    Schools have been going down-hill for a long time. My son brought home his first report card for third grade, and had an A in reading. We read to our kids a lot, but he struggled with reading (later discovered dyslexia) and I was so excited. Pulled a 2nd grade level book out, and asked him to read to me. He couldn’t read at all. When I confronted the teacher about it, she said, “Oh, but that’s not a book he is familiar with.” I said “That’s not reading, that’s memorizing.” we pulled all our kids out and home-schooled for the next 12 years. We quickly figured out the dyslexia, and within a month, he was reading above grade level. Earlier, my daughter 2nd grade) had been denied access to the 3rd grade level books in the library despite being able to read just about anything we put in front of her. Home-schooling was the best decision we ever made for them. And, honestly, the school is one of the better in the area. They still say the pledge daily (including Under God), pray before games, graduation, and parents are very active in all areas of the school. Kids are not allowed to get away with being rude, disrupt class, or act out….. and with your permission – they will give them a swat on the butt. HOWEVER, it was just too much to watch as the standards were lowered – and to realize it was so the kids who could not keep up would not “feel bad”. Sorry – my kids needed a challenge – not boredom. Parents really need to take responsibility for their kids.

    Bingo!

    I am glad to hear it doesn’t just happen to me. I thought it was something I did to my computer. It only happens randomly, but the comments are one of my favorite parts. I Iearn so much from them, and appreciate learning new things. Glad I can access them again.

    Snort!

    Their arrogance is mind boggling. They all need a good dose of humility, and what we used to call an “attitude adjustment”. They screw themselves up, somehow come to the conclusion that they are something special, and then try to negotiate something as idiotic as how they are being made to feel? hmmmmm..kind of sounds familiar.

    I was thinking about that, too. What are they going to do if she actually doesn’t make it into the White House? How are they going to pay back all the favors they promised? What are they going to do if all this exposure actually has some kind of an effect on their donors and they only have $15 or $20 million/year to live on? How will they survive the horrible down-grade in income? Bless their hearts, I am just so worried…. (sarc off)

    @HanabanaJoe and Conservadavetoo – AHA! Got it. Thanks. Still looks like snot!

  • [5] May 22, 2015 at 12:15pm

    Laugh! Chortle! Snort!

    Has he handled things properly? Yes. Does he need to pay the consequences? Of course. Simply agreeing with the way he owned up does not mean anyone is excusing his actions.

    OK….for those of us who are completely “non-sporty” regarding baseball – what was that stuff and why was it a bad thing? Looked like snot from wiping his nose on the back of his arm to me.

    Bee – you miss the point. Was what he did wrong? Without a doubt. Was the way he has handled it right? without a doubt. It isn’t making what he did ok. It is facing it, admitting it, repenting of it, and then following through with allowing God to change you. He has not tried to deny, justify, or hide from his acts. I doubt you could manage as gracefully as he has. It is the continuing denial, justification and repetition of the SIN that cannot be condoned. The way the left is constantly trying to convince me that the gay life style, abortion, etc. etc. etc. is just fine – that really makes me sick. If they can, I don’t doubt that at some point trying to make molestation “normal” will find its way into the liberal agenda – if not already. It is a sin – but as with all sin – it depends on how you handle it. God can and will forgive true repentance. Even better, God can and will change you if you let Him.

    How about you compare his response to the lefty liberals accused in the past and see how things look. Have they VOLUNTARILY confessed or admitted anything? NO. Made reparations? NO. Gone to the authorities voluntarily? No. Asked for forgiveness? Maybe – sort of – but only because they were caught and had to say something. Ask God to forgive them? Hah! These Blaze commentators know we all mess up – but it is what you do when you are faced with that sin. He has handled this admirably, and I challenge you to find one single idiotic “progressive” who has handled themselves even half as well. He has asked forgiveness from both God and the injured parties. Americans are very forgiving people – but there has to be a true acceptance of responsibility and all of the other necessary steps taken for them to forgive. What more can someone do?

    I have to disagree with you. The assignment was to convey information about her – and John 3:16 was an important part of her faith and who she is. By disallowing her to use the verse, they are essentially minimizing an important part of her as a person. I am so fed up with the whole process of rationalizing how it is ok for schools to do this. I guess you took note that there was nothing mentioned about the koran NOT being ok…just the Bible and the Book of Mormon managed to make the “banned” list. I doubt seriously they would have had the gumption to say anything about that. Anyway, if the koran is a major part of a child’s life, why should they not be allowed to say so? No one is trying to force the kids to believe, and all this talk about “diversity” seems to disappear when a Christian says something about their faith. She was sharing herself with the class – and her faith was demeaned.

    That has been going on for quite a while, and always seemed kind of dumb to me. Once we began homeschooling, it was great to be able to stop all that kind of nonsense. We celebrated – when appropriate.
