    I think what a lot of people are overlooking here is one thing that really has always torqued me the most all my life. Why in the hell do women associate one man with all other men? That’s a serious question and I readily implore women on this site to please respond to this. I’ve been treated like absolute trash by several women in my life… it has never crossed my mind to hold that against the general population of women ‘at large’ so to speak, however most women… not just a few… but *most* women I meet throughout my 41 years so far absolutely chalk all men up against all past experiences. It is why it took me so long to find my wife I believe.

    @TheOnly – You are either way full of crap, or have bought into some idiot hook, line, and sinker. I have participated in sweat lodges having close, personal friendships with several Lakota Sioux men and their families – all of which have expressed to me that they are royally pissed off that the term Redskin is being tarnished. That everyone they know in most nations are pissed off about it, and that anyone who finds the term offensive and is actually a part of a tribe that has any reverence of tribal history is keeping the pipe all to himself.

    I feel bad for the man that died, I feel bad for the man that killed him. Weird sensation to be honest. I think my main reason I don’t feel like he would have been ‘intent’ on killing the man is that if anyone would have been in a ‘good mood’ over an argument, it would have been the driver, since his opponent was just knocked out of the race… so I don’t see how he would still be raging since he was now the one ‘on top’ of the argument as it were. I don’t know and I don’t think anybody will since we’re not in his head. I just don’t see how you could convict the guy of murder, especially considering the circumstances. I can’t believe the man who died actually walked out onto the track… what are you thinking no matter how ticked off you are? Ugh. Horrible story.

    Trust in UBIQUITY! – We wouldn’t even have High Speed out here in the boonies if it weren’t for neighbors across the river about a mile away… There is no cable or DSL here. Probably never will be (No cable, and local phone is AT&T minimum of $42/month with nothing additional). So, cut my phone off to Straight Talk home phone ($15 / mo unlimited nationwide) and worked out a deal with that neighbor to foot most of the internet bill in exchange for putting up a Ubiquity wireless antenna at their home. Aligned it with the opposite end at my house… (I recommend the lower 900MHz band if you have a lot of trees like we do) and BAM! High speed internet at a shared, lower rate. Kiss the phone and cable companies goodbye! LOVE IT!

    What’s really weird to me is that SpaceX already has a space vehicle with a built in deceleration system via a rotating wing. If they can do that at sub-orbital flights with 8 year old materials, shouldn’t NASA be able to come up with something similar yet sturdy enough for orbital? Especially since the private sector is already working on their next gen space tourism plane? I don’t get it. We’ve got the private sector replenishing the space station now, moon landers nearing completion for first tests… it seems strange to me is all.

    I went vapor back when they first came out and never looked back. Save yourself a ton of money. There are a ton of way better options these days than the crappy little e-cigs I started out with, so find what you like best. Happy to say what I’ve latched onto but I don’t want to sound like a salesman for a company… point is, for about $100 investment a few years ago now (the system I still use) I buy the juice at $12 a bottle that lasts about a week. And I have to spend an additional $35 ever two months or so on new cartridges (they start to get burnt tasting after several refills.) So, I spend around $80 per month on the high side – I usually order an extra flavor r something to try – as opposed to $200-$300. Plus, my house, car, clothes, etc. don’t stink anymore. My smoker’s cough is long gone, and I still get to enjoy my ‘adult pacifier’ because at this point… that’s all it is. I’m down to .4% nicotine and many days 0% nicotine. I mainly enjoy the flavors. Hey, I don’t care if people don’t like it. ‘If you’re not addicted why don’t you just quit?!’ Because I’m an adult and if I don’t feel like getting rid of a pleasing habit – I’m not going to. Have fun hating. :)

    Well I probably shouldn’t put this out there, but I am going to: For those that really enjoyed Wilkow, but hate SiriusXM – I was in that same boat too. Do a search for Sirius free trial, no card required. Grab yourself a new email address somewhere, sign up for free internet listening, and listen to Wilkow on demand whenever you get home or I listen to him via my phone live on the road… hey it is a workaround. I don’t feel too bad about it because I did buy a lifetime membership way back when they offered them, but I did technically cancel my service a year ago over an awful lib program I heard that they refused to apologize for that was making fun of some poor girls being raped simply because they weren’t libs. Ugh.

    His show got cancelled. Nobody knows why, Andrew is professional enough not to go into details which is good. He did a bit on his radio show on Sirius following his firing? resignation? who knows? about how he holds no ill will and will find a way to get back on television and keep working hard to be better at TV. I can only assume (and this is completely an *ASSUMPTION*) that perhaps his ratings were low or he was having some performance problems keeping up or something. Glenn has never taken a minute to wish him good luck or farewell or anything so we just don’t know. I don’t hold anything against either party – I just wish somebody could/would say what happened, and I don’t like the way it was handled so I unsubbed from the TV Network. I’m not going to stop supporting the website or the charities or Glenn overall, but The Blaze TV was supposed to be different – including the way it handles people and business… and it isn’t. So I’ve done my part and helped out since the beginning of GBTV to the end of last month. No big deal.

  • August 7, 2014 at 10:46am

    That’s my problem Doors… I’m all for Glenn moving and shaking. Keeping things going and doing his best to keep up and do whatever he thinks is best, however as I saig the only reason I dropped TV is because he can move and shake all he wants, but he really did an about face on his principles the way he kicked Wilkow. It’s not that he kicked him… business is business. He may just not have been getting the ratings. Who cares what the reason was – it’s Glenn’s company, but we’re the one’s that helped him get where he is, he constantly tells us that, and he constantly berates other organizations and the government for doing exactly what he did… sweep an event under the rug over the weekend – especially one where you will be gone the following week – so there is nobody to answer any questions and nobody who will report on what the heck just happened. Wilkow was a good employee, and his the fans of his show and The Blaze TV are such that I think it deserved 2 whole minutes of ‘Hello ‘Merica… A change has come to The Blaze and we wish Andrew the best… etc.’ Wow, how hard would that be to just be nice and honorable about it? Oh well. Like you said… I got out of that stinky kitchen. I’m still around though.

    Ok so you’re not happy with your kid’s life choices. You even hate her boyfriend. You even feel helpless to get her out of what you perceive (and maybe even truthfully so) a hopeless situation… you can’t murder someone over it. Especially murder someone and then take a pop shot at your own kid. One of two things here: don’t have the whole story, or these are a couple of over the top parents who went off on a rail over perfectionism. It does happen and I’ve seen it way too close and personal. Not murder, but complete ousting from the family and steadfast claim of ‘death’ from the family for over 25 years just because of difference of opinion and lifestyle. (No, not sexual lifestyle either. Absolutely mindblowing how stupid it is imho)

    Nobody knows for sure. A while back the same day that Glenn and everyone went on vacation… Wilkow! was just gone. No cancellation announcement – nothing of any kind – he was just gone. They still advertised his show and ran re-runs, but no explanation. Andrew made a brief statement on his radio show but was very polite and professional about it and would make no comment on The Blaze’s behalf which was good of him. So… that’s is. As far as I know nobody knows the real story – disagreement, ratings, fallout, whatever. Now obviously the most recent change is that Dana has gotten a M-F show which is good since it helps fill the void. Just wish Wilkow was still here!

    I take it you haven’t seen Beck’s wife lately? Maybe not your cup of tea or something, but she’s certainly worth writing home about. I don’t think Beck has any need for trying… he already has a winner. How is a good question at times… lol

    Not a matter of him making me ‘happy’ all the time. I can’t stand half the crap he pulls, and I still pull for the guy. However if I see such a hypocrisy that even he himself preaches against doing take place that never gets resolved and I don’t feel I can take part in it anymore then yeah… just like any other consumer situation I am going to take my money elsewhere. I will still support Mercury One projects that I like and read my news from here unless something really stupid happens, but the TV Network? Nope. It’s just a decision I made on principles I don’t want to break. Simple as that.

  • [12] August 6, 2014 at 6:56pm

    Because that would last…. 30 seconds at best? It would be mass hysteria wanting refunds over seeing Obama’s butt on the floor, eyes rolled up into his head, with little tweety birds flying around his head while thoughts of healthcare danced in his head… Just sayin’

    Oh I don’t know… I hate that Wilkow is gone and especially the way it was handled, but I don’t hold any of that against Dana. I don’t necessarily like everything about her shows, but I do like her smarts and unwillingness to yield, etc. I wish her the best and hope she makes a great career out of it. Like I said – I just wish that Wilkow was still a part of that lineup, regardless of the time slot. His was my favorite show!

    Too bad Wilkow isn’t in that lineup anymore. Sure would have been nice to hear a simple ‘farewell’ from Glenn rather than The Blaze just showing itself to be yet another MSM company… sweeping things under the rug over a holiday weekend – ‘nothing to see here’. I like Dana, but it just sucks the way the whole Wilkow situation was treated. Sorry, but I’ll not re-sub to BlazeTV. I still visit here for the news and try to be supportive if I can, but the TV network is no longer what I was helping to build.

    One of the few things old Missouri is good for is gun laws. We’ve also eliminated federal background check collating. All background check documentation is now to be stored in each local county and only available upon lawful request. Now that I can live with. Ok lemme check with the county real quick… great you’re not a criminal or a nut-job – here’s your weapon and have a nice day!

  • August 4, 2014 at 11:21am

    I do remember a person referencing using Traveler’s Cheques, however they also stated how much of a pain it is since more and more people refuse to accept them, plus there are fees involved, thus basically being penalized for using an alternative currency. Which I would point out would be the same in the instance you are referring to. Even if you could find stores that accept alternate currencies, you are having to pay exchange fees. I’m not supporting the position – I’m just saying that the argument they have much of a choice is pretty thin. The only thing I can think of would be Bitcoin. Very small fees and there are slowly more and more options for purchasing – however it is all digital and you do have ID theft and tracking again. Whereas cash… although not entirely untraceable… for the most part it is just me and the vendor. Plus whatever I have I have. It’s not going away if the bank closes or I can’t get on the internet.

  • August 4, 2014 at 11:11am

    @Cavallo – That again is BS. If you are like many intelligent people these days and do not want to keep all of your money in the bank, you cannot use any other currency then US currency in the US. Try walking up to a McDonalds, or into a Macy’s or any other business and presenting them with Pesos. Sorry, but that is such a far fetched argument it isn’t even funny. Even I don’t use a card unless absolutely necessary due to all the different crap out there. Cash only please, and if that is how you want to do business in the US, then you must use our currency.
    Therefore, regardless of what you do/don’t believe then you need to be able to realize that motto of ‘In God We Trust’ is just that – a motto that represents a founding principle of our nation. Not an edict.

    Oh will you whiners give it up already? Do you know how many times Thor has already *been* a woman in the past? I have nearly every Thor comic from the beginning since #10, including all the alternate universes of him. He has been all kinds of people. Plus Thor is still Thor as an individual, it is just the whole ‘whoever holds this hamme, if they be worther shall hold the power of Thor’ thing. He has been a woman, a man, a boy, a horse, a frog, need I go on? It is a woman who holds the hammer, invoking the power of Thor. This time it is just more personalized that she becomes him, rather than he becoming her or some such. Plus, the other Thor comics aren’t going away either. It is just *another* (quite welcome for my wife and other new fan-girls) attempt by marvel to welcome the female audience. Relax already… it is a comic book and they are made for this kind of ‘controversy’… it is what keeps them fun to read and see what the hell they are going to do next! :)
