@blink – you are absolutely the perfect example of everyone beating their heads against the slab wall of just arguing in a circle so you don’thave to admit the truth:
Nobody cares but yourselves who you get to spend the rest of your life with… Go ahead and get joined however you like – just don’t try to force my church to do it for you. THAT is the only problem here. You and the rest just don’t want to admit it.
“Nobody is seeking aproval…. They want to get married and a certain group of people don’t want to let them ….” -> I dont even need to start posting the myriad of links to any number of news stories on the number of churches, pastors, etc. being sued or besmirched for refusing to *marry* gay couples do I? So why seek out a church? Why care? Go to churches and denominations that SUPPORT gay unions and have at it. Again – this is an unwinnable argument for you so just keep up the circle. Keep banging you head against the wall. Hopefully, eventually some sense might get knocked into it.

You guys drink all the beer you want. I will have the occasional Guinness with my Dad just because, and I like it well enough, but I am all about taste and I love me some hard ciders and Ozark moonshines.
I don’t get to drink very often anyway – equal to about 2 beers a month (epilepsy) so I like to savor it.
One of my favorites is Woodchuck Pear! Ohhh so good. :D
I don't even consider Bud Light, Budweiser or Coors Light to be beers. They have no real taste and what taste there is sucks. Give me a Guinness Stout any day. Based on the list, I don't think I'd drink any of those "beers".
I haven't had Guiness in Ireland, but if you're drinking it over here you're doing yourself a disservice. Move straight to New Holland Dragons Milk or 3 Floyds Moloko for a nice easy stout.
When I left for basic training in Georgia, back in the sixties, my Dad warned me about moonshine. He and his Dad had made moonshine outside of Savannah when he was a kid. They would drive it into town and make enough to keep the farm going.
He said that it would be easy to get around the base and that someone would have some and I would be curious. He said to put some in a glass and light it. If it burned pure blue or clear it was good...if there was any orange in the flame at all, not to drink it.
He was right. One day on base, some guy broke out a jar of it. I tested it, it burned blue and I had a shot. It was the nastiest, strongest stuff I had ever had. (must have been first run). After the first two shots, it wasn't horrible and after a few more, it was damn pleasant.
The next day was not.
It wasn't the .45 that won the west, it was hard cider

What really kills me, is that all of the people that hate religion, or claim that religion is responsible somehow for this particular situation, or better yet – that there should be a vote about say divorce or adultery just like being a homosexual union versus a marriage.
Do you hear yourselves? You are demanding that a religion you generally despise, allow you into its fold and be ‘blessed’ into a holy ritual called marriage specifically stated within the pages of its teachings between a man and a woman… another fact which you despise.
Do you ever really stop to think about that? Why on earth would you want to become a part of something you hate? Other than to destroy it out of your own misgivings?
I have visions of a slow trail of people, pausing every so often to slam boards of warped doctrine against their heads…

This is all a bunch of bullcrap as it stands. There are ZERO details here – as it should remain for the sake of the parties involved, but what none of you jerks out there are even considering is the fact that more than likely – this was not even about pedophilia or actual harassment and harm. I don’t have any more details than any of you do, but in elementary school into junior high when hormones start kicking in and you’re not sure about things, and girls are flirting because they aren’t sure either… boys see the ‘big boys’ pinching a girls butt, or fluffing a skirt, or copping a feel, and all they know is – that seems like something pretty darn interesting.
When I was that age, there were plenty of instances where both parties were sent home and there weren’t any more problems.
I MYSELF pinched a girls butt in *6th grade* because I had a crush on her. I didn’t think anything of it – Dad did it to Mom sometimes, Brother did it to his girlfriend, Nobody ever pulled me aside and said ‘oh by the way… don’t you do that’ – and guess what happened? She gasped, her eyes got big, told the teacher on me, I got sent to the office, got paddled and made to run laps and then my parents talked to me about it. Then the girl felt bad and started crying because I got a paddle in the office over it – we ended up dating in High school for several years and are still friends.
So WHO here is overreacting much? If you don’t know the details… who are you?

Wait a second – so long as it falls under Part 103 legal ultralight – which it certainly looks like it does… how in the world can they even bring him up on Airman / Pilot level charges in the first place? Ultralights do not require licensing or permitting. Aside from flying into restricted airspace, and perhaps the USPS logo – this guy hasn’t stepped out of bounds by any stretch so far as just flying a hobby craft.

You know what? I am not anti-intelligent or anti-intellegence, but I would say that I am actually ‘anti-intellectual’ now that you bring it up. At this point in our society, the ‘intellectual’ brings to mind the over-educated, snotty, egotistical, jerk that truly believes he/she knows better how to run anyone’s life than they do and/or are the ultimate authority on a give subject (aside from a particular mentor or peer perhaps).
I completely admit my bias in this regard. However I believe my bias is justified by life experience. That experience is not a localized one, but covers my travels all throughout the United States and its territories for the last 25-ish years.
I have nothing against higher education overall if people really think they need it or want it. My Nephew just graduated with his BS and is going back for his Masters soon. I do have a problem with the institution, where it has gone, and where an individual ends up at the end of said education.
The money required to get a degree is exponentially enormous compared to the past. Multitudes beyond inflation. Professors are paid an all time high and attend their own classes at an all time low.
Yes, I have issues with the ‘intellectuals’. I’ve done very well without and I think the trampling of the average joe for being an ‘outsider’ is adding to the problem. Just like you although I realize it is not your intent. Works both ways.

UseYourBrain- Use Your Brain a second… if you actually believe that you can ascribe a news story (posted on TheBlaze) the power of ‘organizing a movement’, then you also have to agree that the media in Canada are responsible for organizing against this man. On top of that you have to agree that the violence, hatred, and vitriol against the man were inspired by the news.
You are also ignoring the fact that your Starbucks argument holds no water… Starbucks *refused service* – this man did not. Even the individuals that are so upset admitted to great customer service and prices! Oh my gosh how awful! However, my feelings are hurt so therefore it is completely ok to threaten, bash, and ridicule until I get my money and everyone else that can crawl out of the woodwork.
Yep… makes absolutely zero sense.
A deal is a deal. You suddenly don’t like someone for whatever reason? Then you stop doing business with them. You don’t go back on your word because you can’t handle life in general.
My entire family did business with a local jeweler for a few generations – quite a bit of money between all of us, friends, and relatives. Suddenly the guy is adamantly anti-American. What the? So we all stopped doing business there. We did not however try to go and return everything we ever bought and demand our money back.
Oh yeah and so much for your LOVE argument. The man has basically told everyone and everything I love to go to he!! in some sickening ways. Including my wife.

Nice try once again ModRep. How long until you realize how ridiculous the talking points really are? Or is the pay just really that good?
There was never just a ‘remove the fried food’ initiative. If it had been, then I doubt there would have been much of a stink beyond an adjustment period. Plenty of hearty and tasty alternatives the kids will eat out there. Unfortunately that is not what happened – try reading.
Kids are getting fresh deli sliced, light turkey sandwiches, with a bag of baked chips and an apple taken way, thrown in the trash, and replaced with *fried* crappy chicken nuggets, over boiled and no-nutrients left green beans, and some friggin’ ketchup.
Are you serious? No you’re not, just another idiot playing games. Have fun.

You people are so full of crap. No way anyone has been in IT for years and has problems with advertisements on this website. No way. I’ve been a technician since the late 90′s before the web even ‘took off’ as it were. I worked with computers long before the ‘PC’ or ‘Mac’ existed.
My wife figured out TheBlaze with no problems. AdBlock. Free. Works like a champ. Works for Chrome, FF, Safari, Chromium, IE, all without a hitch.
You just want some reason to bag on Glenn and can’t find any other reason to bit*h about him making money the right way, and this seems like it might sound ‘bad enough’ to seem like a negative way to make money.
Well guess what folks? This website is free. Running it is not. Those of us that pay subscriptions – those subs have nothing to do with this website – those are for radio, television, and production budgets.
Personally, I make sure to leave AdBlock turned OFF most of the time on this site to support the ad counters. I only ever have to close the initial main ad, and mute some annoying little video ads on the side sometimes.
Hey – you don’t like Glenn? More power to you… you can’t figure out how to browse the internet without either dealing with or avoiding popup ads? That is on you.

It is all fake at this point. There are no more arguments to win. I’m sick of the paper people making phony comments with zero content.
 May 19, 2015 at 6:09am
That is a different kind of man right there. Wow
 May 16, 2015 at 4:19pm
I hope this jerk realizes there is more than just a silver mallet waiting for him in the end. Using his position as poop to influence the people in such a disgusting manner. It is sickening. It is not his job to try to bend foreign policy or influence governments. Although for some reason they certainly believe it to be for some time now. All hail the poop. The holy poop of Wome. Hopefully he gets to look at the menu before he burns.

Oh good grief – the ‘mandatory annual sexual harassment training’ where I worked was just a perfect example of the absolute insanity of it all.
Whoever designed the course was so intellectually over the top, they went backwards. By the end of the quizzes – if you scored the mandatory 100% to complete – you had actually answered several questions in direct opposition to one another. Such as what is or is not appropriate behavior / contact / questions / etc.?
They’re nuts. They don’t even know why they are ticked off anymore so they have to invent convoluted arguments to achieve the goal of being ticked off! lol – oh man.
We had a guy that gave us a good 8 year run with his sensitivity training. A good guy. Then all of a sudden last year he flipped. He had all sorts of over the top and hidden messages. I was glad my employer went in a different direction this year.

And… ACSES has already failed twice. Human ‘backup’ i.e. the person driving the train is still the problem in the end.
Also, Amtrak is supposed to be a private organization with private funds making a profit and able to fund these things on its own – however it is now just a government funded system, poorly run, inefficient, and nobody cares because the government keeps paying for it.
They will never ‘get back on track’ as it were if we just keep feeding them money and nobody holds the entity responsible – just the money we somehow owe them, but not anyone else. Well except for maybe solar companies and things like that.
 May 13, 2015 at 9:14am
I don’t see anywhere in the article that stated there was only one way to deal with fear. Just an article about a person and the way that particular person deals with it. Touchy much?
 May 13, 2015 at 8:54am
Amen Brother. Perfectly stated.
 May 13, 2015 at 8:49am
Actually, there is nothing wrong with these kids at all. It is basic psychology you bleeding heart doofusus. You’re all the same. Awww the poor *dead* kitty cats. How awful they are for mistreating them… although they are about to be sliced and diced…
The fact is that a majority of those kids are having queezy stomachs and quite normal psychological progression regarding the fact they are about to dissect and study what was once a living creature. ‘Reanimating it’ – just like when you found a dead frog or bird? You shake it or move it’s limbs to try to wake it up?
Stupid to put it on video and post it, quite a normal response to the jitters and keeping it together among your classmates.
Psychology 101 folks. You can try to deny it all you want to, call it bogus all you want to, say it is not the same all you want to – the fact is that you are just being an emotional dunce and have never learned how to deal with it yourself.
If they were laughing as they put it through a woodchipper and played with the results? Then we need to start talking to them ok?
I also find it hilarious that forcing LIVING cats to go through this same type of scenario and people finding it ‘cute” rather than demeaning for the cat. Bassackward people. LOL

Beat me to it. My work-provided cell phone has not left a desk-drawer of a wal-mart cheapo desk in a storage unit for 2 years. It sits there, plugged in, always on, with forwarding and cloud services setup. For the exact same reason as this.
2 years ago they required us to all install a new mobile app for ‘simplifying our case updates’ – you could now access the ticket system from your phone. The catch that many of us figured out was, that it also used your location information and auto-tagged it into your case.
The subject has come up twice, both times my work ethic and case loads / closures / etc. were not disputable… so what is the issue? They don’t want to be the ones to come out and say ‘well we are tracking you and even though you are obviously doing your job, you phone isn’t moving with you.’ So the conversation comes to an uncomfortable end and that’s it. They know that we know that they know that we know… lol Scroo-them.

Probably because he planned on being a lot more than a throw away until he found out she was sleeping around and left. For some reason, it seems like it is difficult for people to accept the fact that women are actually more likely the ones sleeping around on the men these days. You can try to deny it… but I’ve known far too many women in just my small sphere of life (family, workplace, friends, etc.) that it is approaching double compared to men when it comes to sleeping around, or sleeping with a ‘new mate’ while still doing so with the ‘old one’ before leaving him. The idea being (so I’ve been told many times) that it is easier to let the man have a fit and be the one to break up. That way he is at least in some way in the wrong too. There’s some way-out logic for you. LOL

You show me where the first $5.4 million is entirely exempt from taxation. from *all* entities. State, Local, and Federal.
If you have never run (paid taxes and fees to operate) a small farm, much less a ranch, you have no idea what you are talking about.
Private property taxes – *all* buildings, all vehicles and equipment, etc. Not just a house and a truck.
Production taxes, etc.
