The title of this article is very misleading. It needs to be changed! Anyone just seeing the title is going to think that Ms.Swift did something mean or nasty, especially if they don’t know much about her, and that couldn’t be further from the truth!
They do that on purpose to get people to click. The Blaze is one of the worst offenders at fake headlines. That and the insane amount of ads and popups makes me wonder if Glen Beck is proud of the sideshow he created here. I think it may have gotten away from him somewhere along the line and he needs to get the management to refocus. We already have one National Enquirer...

It looks like a functional system, ,and I love the name: “Lethal Lace”! To the author, Mike Opelka, it should, however, be pointed out that none of the items in the picture above are brass knuckles. The items he is mistakenly referring to as brass knuckles are actually pressure point & pain compliance tools made by Krudo Knives. They are designed to convince an attacker that he should really stop whatever it is he is doing by inflicting severe pain upon him but without actually injuring him, and, unlike brass knuckles in most places, they’re actually legal.

As with pretty much anything else, you have to drink way too much of it way too quickly for alcohol to kill you. There are a lot of things in this world that are beneficial in normal doses but will kill you if you get to much of it. Alcohol is simply one of them.

A few years ago there was a homeless man here where I live in Kentucky. He spent all day standing at the end of an off ramp on the interstate highway holding a sign that read “Homeless Veteran, please help”, and people (including me) would give him a bit of money while they were stopped at the light there. One day someone decided to follow him to see what he did with the money, and what he did left some people angry. At the end of the day he would go to one of the nearby restaurants to have dinner and then to the Drury Inn to spend the night.
So many people were up in arms about this, but for the life of me I can’t figure why! I mean, you give a man money to use for food & shelter, and then you get mad when he uses it for food and shelter?! What the hell?!?

Feinstein? Seriously? That was insulting and completely uncalled for! I don’t know what it is, but it’s not that bad!!! ;-)

Wow, color me impressed! I’m glad I saw it on “America’s Got Talent” first. Had it been just another YouTube video I’d have never believed it was real!

Please tell me you’re not talking about Officer Darren Wilson shooting Micheal Brown, because, if you are, you’re an idiot!

Here we have a very good example of why firearms are more useful than cameras!

‘An American With A Remington’, that’s just AWESOME! (I don’t have a Remington. I have a Weatherby though!) The Leftist PC crowd is going to have a conniption over this one!!! :-)

The answer to the poll is that yes, it’s obviously suicide. However, I completely understand her decision. The vast majority of people have never experienced real suffering, the kind of intense, non-stop, torturous pain that just doesn’t end. Several years ago I was in a freak accident that left me a partial paraplegic and dealing with episodes of pain at an intensity that I honestly could not have even imagined before the accident. Fortunately strong pain meds do a pretty decent job of controlling much of the pain associated with the injury, and the pain the medications don’t control is either tolerable or a passing thing, although several times a month I still have to deal with nerve pain that can last for days and is so intense that the only way to treat it is with sedation. Not even dangerously high doses of the strongest pain medications available make any difference whatsoever.
That being said, the only time in my life that suicide has ever entered my mind as a possible option is the one time I ran out of medication two days early. (I’m still not sure how that happened.) The only thing that kept me going was knowing that the pain would end as soon as I was able to get a refill. Had I been in a position of knowing that that kind of pain was going to continue indefinitely I really don’t know how long I would’ve lasted or how long I will last if ever that happens. Consequently I’m not quick to judge someone in that situation who decides that suicide is the only answer!!!
thanks for sharing this personal post. I believe you're absolutely right that the vast majority of people have never experienced real suffering; and the nerve pain you talk about can be even worse. Very good and qualified post in my opinion. I wish you the best of days as you continue to battle!

Seriously?! I’m glad they got the scumbag, but armored vehicles and helicopters for one guy with no history of violence?!? There’s being prepared, and then there’s just plain idiocy and a gross misuse & waste of resources! And they wonder why people fear the over militarization of the domestic police force!!!

While I understand and agree with your point, when Phil said, “God says we can whack ‘em and stack ‘em,” he was talking about animals not homosexuals!

Agreed, like most chain restaurants KFC is a franchise business. Punishing all of those small business owners because one of them is an idiot (or at least employs an idiot) is uncalled for. As for the little girl, I wish her and her family all the best and will keep her in my prayers!

Here we have yet ANOTHER example of a state child services threatening to destroy a family in order to make a the political statement that they have complete control over your children, and that you, the parent, have none!!! These stories are way too common. This is another example of big government flexing its muscles to scare We The People into doing what it demands, and it’s long past time that we cut these agencies off at the knees!

That’s pretty cool, but it’s hardly ‘revolutionary’. In fact, the only thing new about it is the Google Glass. Similar technology has been available in other forms for more than a decade.

When you see the WHOLE comment, and not just the part that the Liberal scumbags of the New York Times want you to see, all the ‘racism’ just falls away!
In this case it’s not just the NYT though. There have been some so-called Conservative commentators who just took the Times’s word for it and jumped right in on the attack. They should be ashamed of themselves!!! Stupid crap like this is the reason I cancelled my subscription to ‘The Blaze’ a long time ago. I can get BS for free anywhere. There’s no point in paying for it here!

If I were the judge I would award him every penny he’s asking for and then some. Further more I would order that the half money come from the police dept’s budget with the other half to be paid by the the offending officer & his supervisor, out of their own pockets!!! Once these uniformed dirtbags realize that the cost of bullying and willfully violating the rights of law abiding citizens comes with a hefty price tag and that the money will come directly out of their own pockets, not from the innocent tax payers, crap like this will stop! right quick!

Steve Irwin and I would have had some serious ideological differences, but he was someone that I truly respected. R.I.P. Steve. You are missed!

This is a small point, but it’s one that needs to be made. The people writing these stories and making these complaints need to learn a little about helicopters! Every story I’ve read about this matter complains or at least mentions that the SEALS were riding in a CH-47 Chinook and then calls it a slow “lumbering transport helicopter.” NEWSFLASH! Yes, the Chinook is primarily a transport helicopter, but there is nothing slow or lumbering about it! The version used by SOCOM has advanced terrain following radar, can fly at 196mph and will easily outrun an AH-64D Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter (top speed 182mph)! Is that one a ‘lumbering’ helicopter too? The only other real options would have been a UH-60 or MH-60 Blackhawk (183mph). The Chinook will easily outrun those too.
Come on people, we all want to know what happened to those brave men, but let’s not invent a scandal where there isn’t one! The Chinook is a good helicopter that’s been used by special forces for decades. It wasn’t the problem. Let’s focus on the things that really could have gotten our people killed and not waste time on fictitious problems.

There’s one major difference between this & McCarthyism. McCarthy was right!!! Leftists are wrong about everything.
