Humans get killed everyday so we should also butcher protected animals and leave their meat to rot? Violent people will be violent with our without guns so we shouldn’t try to do anything to curb gun violence?
Perhaps you're not aware that no "meat is left to rot" on the veldts in Africa. Either a scavenger or another predator will make very good use of any remains of any lion left on the veldt.

The true american history is that the flag disappeared when the south lost the war (see, that’s what happens when you LOSE a war). It came back in the 50′s and 60′s as a reaction to uppity anti-segregationists. Just because some black people don’t know this REAL history, and want to pretend that the modern day flying of the flag means anything else doesn’t change it- these are facts and the flag absofuckinglutely represents racism and should not be flown on government grounds.
If you toothless losers want to fly it in front of your trailers, go right ahead.
Well, golly-gee – If that’s what happens when you lose a war, then WHY is Britain’s Union Jack still flying ? After all, they lost their war against us – TWICE, in fact ! How many wars did France lose through the centuries ? A BUNCH ! Yet their flag is still here.
Why is "Old Glory" still flying, after we lost the Vietnam War; with the help of congress, of course.
Why are there still so many Swastika Flags , Rising Sun Flags, and dozens of other historic flags available all over the world ? Because just like the various Confederate Flags, they represent History and Heritage to many, many people.
Your primary argument is facetious and your secondary comment shows you to be fugging ignorant.

No. It is not accurate- what it is is the same type of fear mongering and appeal to emotion that the people on sites like this one are so used to hearing that they think it is acceptable. It isn’t.

No, no he doesn’t. In fact, he was probably hired by the dems to sabotage the republicans as they yet again will fail miserably at trying to win the white house, thanks in large part to Donald.
Saying that you know a chinese guy and have made deals with chinese business men doesn’t qualify as foreign policy. Saying that you will build a fence to keep mexicans out and make the mexicans pay for it, with zero explanation as to how is not an immigration policy.
His campaign is reminiscent of my son running for president of the student council and promising extra long recess and more soda machines. He appeals to the fears of the stupidest people in this country (many of whom frequent this site) and has absolutely nothing of substance to offer. This will become painfully clear at some point and at that time it will be all over for the republicans once again. So pathetic.
Why should they treat it as news? The guy hasn’t said anything- he just appeals to the dumbest people in our country. He’s gonna make better deals with the Chinese? Ok, what will they be and how will he make them? He’s going to build a fence? Ok, how is he going to pay for it, and who exactly is going to build it.
All politicians blow smoke at election time, but never in the history has any candidate talked so much and said so very little. Pretty pathetic that some of you will actually vote for him.
Basically he is claiming that he is going to do things without any ones approval. You figure the blaze of all places would be against this, this one of their biggest made up problems with obama..
Because the more they sulk and stomp their feet the more they feed the growing momentum around the guy. They should have just ignored him altogether until the primaries were over if this was the direction they were going to go - instead there were endless headline articles about the guy. And now this ridiculous proclamation makes them look even more foolish and blustering. Trump hasn't even made it past the primaries and they've managed to give him all the attention other candidates are starving for. The more they hate on him the more they encourage his supporters. He may be a sideshow barker but they're a cross between Korean Central News Agency and the National Enquirer.
jeb fan alert!!!

Ever consider that perhaps most of the people on govt assistance really do need help? Just because a system is abused by some (which is magnified by fear mongers to the easily manipulated, ie theBlaze readers) doesn’t mean it’s abused by all.
Those in need are probably the ones that feel the hurt the most, because they desperately want to get back to feeling good about themselves and providing for their family.
The ones who are outraged are pissed because theyve been exposed for the moochers and looters they are.
Fear mongers? Come on man. thats lazy. At least show up here and earn some credibility. You went right to the go to accustaions that every other lefty uses. Why dont you just call us racists, then call it a day. One trick pony.
Finally, someone else that can see the truth. The vast majority of people who comment of the Blaze are so hateful; they're no better than the liberals they despise so much.
Most!!!! Ha Ha Ha. As a manager in a grocery store, I can tell you many stories of people filling out applications ONLY because they had to, in order to keep getting their unemployment checks. In some cities if you totaled all the benefits the poor are entitled to get, equates to a $20 an hour job. Food stamps, free phones, housing allowances, free day care, utilities assistance, etc etc etc.
WiseMilennial and glennpatstu, perhaps you would feel better if you each treated yourself to a fresh sanitary napkin, your lame interjections are kind of annoying the men.

OR….. maybe most of them wouldn’t but a few of the bears would, and all of the small minded and easily manipulated bears in other parts of the forest would make generalizations about those bears.
Learn the difference between private and voluntary donations/service/charity and forced confiscation. Also learn the difference between reluctant and humble gratitude and angry demands.Taking advantage of these programs is not a noble pursuit, they are meant for those that truly NEED it.
A good Christian teaches a man how to fish, so he would not be hungry.

How many articles has the Blaze down on the 7 black church burnings? Oh, none? Phew, thank God racism is dead and blacks are solely to blame for all the problems facing their communities. Now, let’s wait until one of ‘em sets a CVS on fire- THAT is newsworthy. . . .

No one is saying he was beaten during the transport- but it only takes a reasonably intelligent person with common sense and without bias to see that they DID ignore their own protocols on restraining a suspect to avoid injury/death during transport. The murder charge is BS but what happened was a dictionary definition of manslaughter- this isn’t the first time someone in Baltimore that someone has been badly injured or killed as the result of an unrestrained ‘rough ride’. Therefore, the officers took actions that they knew could have resulted in death. That’s manslaughter.

“The civil war wasn’t just about slavery and the blacks, it concerned massive economics and desires for self governance.”
Right- the economics of slavery and self-governance in order to preserve slavery. there is no need to rewrite history folks- history from the civil war era was very well documented by the people living at that time. Just read the southern state’s declaration of war/secession- they seceded because of slavery- this is according to their own words.
The slaves of the south were released by the abolitionist movement…..to become slaves of the northern industrial factories…..at less than the wage of their white counter parts.
American public schools have covered this and many lies about slavery. Including the fact that AFRICANS, for a nominal fee, rounded up AFRICANS in the west african jungles for the waiting Dutch slave ships waiting on the Ivory Coast.
Read some American history.

I’m guessing you didn’t read past that sentence that you quoted, because if you had, you would have read a very rational debate based on facts and evidence. Of course, you have no interest in facts and evidence, you just have an IRRATIONAL fear of someone coming to take your guns.
If you say so. Personally I don't equate debates on preventing accidents with debates on limiting rights based on events that occur due to mental or societal disease.
I did just read the entire article, again. The author made his statement that I quoted, then did not present one fact of bit of evidence to back it up, let along attempt to debate it. What article did you read?
 June 22, 2015 at 11:24am
could you please include a link to God’s word endorsing war and violence? Thanks!
Good grief, man, read the entire OLD TESTAMENT, with the exception perhaps of the Song of Solomon.
GOD HIMSELF IS AT WAR against satan. Always has been. Always will be.
The ANGEL ARMIES are fighting in the heavenlies.
How's that for a start on war and violence in GOD'S WORD endorsing our battles against the evil one, hmmm?
Is war and violence SELF-DEFENSE? This Pope IS STUPID and I am a devout follower of Christ, so I can say that with certainty. When Peter cut off the ear of the soldier coming to take Jesus away in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus told Peter in John 18:11 "So Jesus said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it?” "
Jesus did NOT tell Peter to get rid of the sword or turn the sword in. He told Peter to JUST PUT HIS SWORD BACK INTO ITS SHEATH. Weapons are to be used in SELF-DEFENSE ONLY - self-defense against tyranny/slavery/evil by the individual or the military. Peter was allowed to keep his sword for self-defense of himself and to protect others.
If the Catholics want to be led to the slaughter without defending themselves against evil, then God is going to slap them silly in Heaven for not protecting themselves against Satan's minions. THAT IS ON THEM. But, the Holy Spirit tells me daily to defend myself, my loved ones and any other innocent person that I can with any reasonable weapon I have, including GUNS.
There is NOTHING in the Bible that says a follower of Christ cannot defend themselves. And the "live by the sword, die by the sword" is NOT for righteous people, because righteous people will never use their guns arrogantly or unnecessarily. UNRIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WILL LIVE BY THE GUN AND THEY WILL DIE BY THE GUN. This is why we have the Castle and self-defense laws, FOR INNOCENT PEOPLE.
In the Old Testament, God ordered the Israelites to “take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites” (Numbers 31:2). Deuteronomy 20:16-17 declares, “However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them…as the LORD your God has commanded you.” Also, 1 Samuel 15:18 says, “Go and completely destroy those wicked people, the Amalekites; make war on them until you have wiped them out.” Obviously God is not against all war. Jesus is always in perfect agreement with the Father (John 10:30), so we cannot argue that war was only God’s will in the Old Testament. God does not change (Malachi 3:6; James 1:17).
35 And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” They said, “No, nothing.” 36And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.

if it was a gift, he didn’t have to. Since he had a pending felony charge, it likely was a gift because he would not have passed the background check.
But yeah, nothing wrong with our gun control policies.
The convicted felons of the Community don’t have a problem with background checks for their guns.. It’s actually FREE Reign.

If by ‘us becoming simply Americans once again’ you mean to rise above racism, there is no ‘again’ because we were never there. Obama didn’t take us backwards in race relations, his election just brought to the surface the racism that has always existed in many Americans. And now, many of those same Americans want to pretend that their isn’t, and hasn’t always been a racial divide in this country.
The sooner you stop pretending that racism is a thing of the past and that Obama’s policy’s, actions and words are to blame, the sooner we can have a real national conversation about the reality of racism in the US.
But the fact that so many on this cesspool of a website feel the need to point out that violence also exists in inner-cities and who claim that the solution to this problem is more guns in church, as their knee jerk reaction to tis crime, makes me think that this will never happen- the open and the closeted racists will go on being openly or closeted racists and blaming their racism on liberalism, govt conspiracy, etc.
1st, regarding Obama's liability in all of this racial fallout...
The people perpetrating racist acts are 1st & foremost to blame. I don't think people are powerless & are only products of their own environment...but I do recognize the environment does influence decision making. That said, Obama is NOT to blame....the socio-political ideology he (and millions of others) hold is...
MLK had the right idea. A melting pot society is one that integrates people of all races & cultures, under a unifying banner, with borrowed influences & best practices from each culture. People are more prone to look past, accept, or learn from differences if they feel the people they have differences with share something in common. THIS is where benefits of diversity are realized.
Instead, we've been following a multicultural approach, that tells people they should explore & seek out what makes them different (usually along social construct lines), and self ID along those lines. This puts people into camps or tribes. Then the tribes are told that they don't have things they want in life because the other tribe took it from them. That their tribe gains recognition & acceptance by forcing others to tolerate their differences, without finding what's in common. As a matter of fact, sharing cultures is discouraged...and known as appropriation!
This isn't government conspiracy, it's Cloward & Piven. It's Saul Alinsky. It's social engineering 101, for the benefit of affecting political change in a way that makes it easier to get votes.
Yes, racism is alive and well in this country, but not in the way you think. Until ALL racism is addressed.....and that also includes the sanctioned racism that happens within the racial minority communities....racism will never go away.
If Hate begets Hate.....racism begets racism.
The fact that the social science academic community effectively re-wrote the definition of racism to specifically exclude racial bias toward whites (meaning racial minorities can never be guilty of being racists....despite use of racial discrimination against whites) should be all that you need to know about what the ultimate motive is of associated political ideologies.
June 18, 2015 at 4:21pm
Yeah- the real problem is not enough guns in Church. You people are nuts.
LOL "you people." You people are the ones that enjoy the freedom and protection that "we people" provide. And yes, one more gun in that church in capable hands would have saved lives you pansy idiot. You can sleep well tonight because rough men stand ready to do violence on your behalf, even if you idiots do take away the guns. But what do you care, go back to sleep pansy.
So now if 9 people gather together for a Bible study at their church in America there needs to be at least on of the 9 strapped and ready to kill...... Come on. This is not the answer.
[-2] June 18, 2015 at 4:20pm
yea, we should really mourn for awhile and not talk about bigotry and guns. Maybe we can finish mourning before the next one happens- but probably not.
[-1] June 18, 2015 at 4:16pm
Ok- but why are there so many more violent criminals here as compared to the rest of the developed world? We should talk about that. But, lemme guess- too soon right? We have to grieve, right?
To understand murder, let's take for example the advanced countries of Germany, Russia, and China and see how many citizens were murdered by their own government...hundreds of millions!And those citizens are still grieving. Weak and flawed without regard to history and after you finish grieving you may understand.
