“The numbers don’t even correlate with a yellow star” one parent said right before the number was tattooed onto their child’s arm and someone began rolling up their sleeve….

Hey Jinxe, it is fine if that is your choice of charities, but what about all the other charities that do great works? Who are you or myself to decide who spends their money/treasure in what way? Besides, there is no mention of how much these people have given to charity already and it is none of my business besides. What you or any of us might view as ‘a waste’ doesn’t matter. Let them grieve without the snobbery of judgement. Hopefully we might be granted the same when the time comes.

Man I always told the family I want to be scattered over the farm when I die… *this* is way better than what I had in mind!!! Just go ahead and lay me down to rest on that sucker first! :)

Actually you are wrong here – everyone does not blame Obama for ‘everything’ – they blame Obama for the things he personally messes up (which granted, is pretty often) and they blame the *Obama administration* for a whole lot – which is mostly deserved. Just like when Bush was in office… it is easy to accuse people of always blaming Obama if you take out that little ‘administration’ part.
The SS, Sec of State, all department heads and their immediate associates comprise the administration. Not just Bawack.
And actually you would point your finger at the White House in this instance because that is where this issue comes from. The Secret Service. White House organization incarnate eh?

This is sickening crap that did not have to happen!
Case in point – ME!
Over a decade of doctors trying different meds to deal with my epilepsy.
At one point, one of the really idiot, kick-back centered doctors gave me friggin’ Paxil in combination with my other anti-epileptic drugs (Paxil is an anti-depressant among other things)
I began feeling anxious and uneasy all day, then the nightmares started.
I’d never had – before or since – any thoughts or dreams that involved harming another person… these were horrific, murderous, nasty nightmares I can’t even begin to discuss that haunt me to this day. I was freaking out and called my neurologist who just wanted me to keep taking it for a while to see if it would ‘pan out’.
In the end I quit taking it, found yet another neurologist, who finally ended up being the one who cured me (found the drug combo I now take to keep my from having seizures anyway)
Careless and money-grubbing doctors should be held responsible in some cases. I can’t imagine what might have happened if I had just kept going and tried to ‘keep it inside’?? Holy crap.
TLDR – this could have been me. Easily. Medication can kill you and those you love I am absolutely certain and things need to change regarding monitoring. Both the doctors and the patients!

Down2long – How friggin’ sick are you? Read what you just wrote and then re-read it again. What kind of disconnect must you have to equate someone filling out a voluntary donor card, with an unborn/newborn child?! Every state has a box on their driver’s license (that I’ve been in) that you can mark… babies don’t have licenses last time I checked.
The only human beings that are dissected today (at least in the USA) are the ones that marked that box, left paperwork that they were to be donated to science, or left no papers of any kind and died in incarceration. End of list. Life is not a choice – what you choose to do *with* that life is that individual’s choice.
This argument isn’t even in the same universe with itself. Ugh you twisted sick people.

Well that kinda ended her for me. I’m sick of the double talk and re-direct. Oh well sure I may have said that, but that was then and this is now and that’s just not important – oh by the way (move this embarrassing topic aside) what about those really current topics that I’m doing good on right now? Let’s talk about those eh?
Trump, as ridiculous as his past to present positions are, will at least just come right out and say it. Ted Cruz has been steady on his course the whole time.
I’m really not sure why Ted is not much higher in the polls than he is. Even with the nutty coverage of the others, Cruz has mileage when it comes to the distance in stature between himself and most if not all of the others running.
That is what I have been scratching my head about. People complain that there is no one that is standing up for the constitution then lo and behold Ted Cruz is and has been (PAST and present) and people are supporting a newly minted "Republican". I get people are angry I am one of them. But to not consider a proven past is ?

teat – the problem with your argument is – she paid the same taxes you did all her life, along with her now deceased husband. Your taxes, our taxes, have nothing to do with this lady’s upkeep. She paid for her own upkeep lock, stock, and barrel. Done.
The *government* are the ones who broke into the vault, took the money for something else, and are using the system against current and future generations.
Absolutely the *system* needs to go away, but there is no way to hold this lady and the millions like her responsible for the idiocy of the government they trusted.
Try again. Just another troll trying to play on an argument they don’t understand anyway.

Hey you don’t want to support CNN I can totally understand that – no reason to bend reality and somehow make it ‘bad’ that Mike ‘took the money’… I hope he is raking it in off of them. More power to him. Kinda stinks I don’t watch it live like his old show, but I just wait until it hits YouTube so CNN doesn’t get my money. lol

This is where most people just don’t get it. That was real *parenting* and love on display there. In the end, I will always cheer you on and help you if you really need it, but you just learned that you don’t need me to do it for you… you did that! :D

It is not doubtful, and it is most definitely possible. I don’t know anything about this guy, but to make a broad-stroke suggestion that it is just ‘the way it is’… that is pretty sickening and most definitely self-perpetuation at the very least wouldn’t you say?
The man I am about to start working for is one of the most brilliant developers I’ve ever met. Very centered on the people that work for him and how he runs his studio. We’ve had countless hours of conversation and discussion over morals, ethics, business ethics, etc. and how each of us got from where we were to where we’re at now. He came a looooong way from the person he used to be to where he is now.
People do need good examples to live by. I sure think Ben Carson is a good example, and I believe he could do some *real* healing in this world. Might even get us all back to where we were about the time Reagan was done with us. Anyone else in High School or College back in the 80′s? Sure is different now isn’t it? For the worse.

No no no… I would actually notice. I know I would because there would suddenly be no way to get an awesome cup of coffee on the way to work in the morning. They do make good coffee.

I just love seeing a big fat ’0′ next to Graham. *sigh* so nice when the digit fits the diminutive. :)
I was appalled when I heard his announcement to run.

Your comment is revealing in and of itself Heisenken… *probably* is the whole problem here. It is a man with a gun. It doesn’t matter if he’s crawling along the street, pulling himself with his scrapped up bloody elbows… if he won’t drop the gun, a taser doesn’t always work. You have to drop him.
There have been plenty of shows where some people simply feel a sting from tasers and do not succumb to any kind of paralyzation at all. You can’t take that chance with someone *armed* and especially an obviously known, loaded, and recently used weapon.
Be as emotionally empathetic as you want, I feel bad for the guy too – so far as I don’t know why he was in the state he was in to do such a thing, but I can’t fault the officer(s) for killing the guy. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist.

It may be unfortunate, but how many more regulations do we need? How about a little common sense?
German Shepard – common service dog breed
Service ID – The man had the dogs Service ID Card and presented it
Vest or signage in plain view – The dog was wearing its service/do not pet vest
Verbal confirmation – from the owner / this Marine in question!
Knowledgeable – not only did the man have answers, he offered up information and phone numbers.
It doesn’t get any better than this. 5 people in total at AA ended up being complete arsewipes and that’s all there is to it. Here is much more on the story since TheBlaze can’t be bothered to report the important details sometimes: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2015/09/22/veteran-service-dog-have-trouble-boarding-flight/72620614/

I beg your pardon? I don’t *think* I’m doing the right thing… I *know* I am. Silly average people! Pft

@Snow – go back and read some of your own work before spewing anti-hate messages against me. I should probably tone it down and be ‘nicer’ like I used to be I agree, yet I have become increasingly less patient for those that jump to conclusions without taking the time to read a little and in doing so – imply something that isn’t which just keeps stirring the pot.
So grab a spoon, let’s make cake.
[-2] September 22, 2015 at 10:14am
Did you read the article Snow?
” … with attorneys for four couples now questioning the validity of altered licenses that have been issued by her office.
Those couples — which include two gay couples and two straight couples … ”
There you go, you have now read it somewhere. Perhaps others might be able to read the same article and find the ‘hidden information’ that lies within it and find some way to stop the witch hunt.

That is not amnesty.. how do you figure? Deport people, then streamline the process so that everyone attempting to immigrate legally can do so in a much better fashion which in turn would ‘expedite the process’.
There is no tangible reason it should take one person 6 months and another person 8 years assuming all parties are created equal (applied about the same time, background checks are good, etc.). to become a legal resident of this country and then work on their citizenship. Otherwise, if they don’t want citizenship they have a limited temp visa and must check in on their way out when it expires. Otherwise they are found and deported upon expiration. Simple.
No amnesty about it. Just common sense that should have been implemented decades ago. You know… the whole fence, patrol, and increased security we’ve been taxed for and even had increased taxes for more than once… and never gotten. That stuff.

The goofy part is – the point of the video and article was de-bunking the Hollywood / ‘movie magic’ that a lock can just be obliterated by a bullet.
By spending a bit of ammo, the man showed that just shooting the lock at any particular center of mass with pretty much any handgun caliber will not do you any good for an ‘instant access’, whereas good old bolt cutters will do the job perfectly.
It was fun to watch, and probably saved even a few idiots from using a gun for something even more stupid than they were already setting out to do. Perhaps not, but you never know.
How hard is it to just take him at face value for the comparison he was making, rather than skipping that entirely and accusing him of all sorts of non-issues that don’t relate to what he was attempting to show?
So much for plinking.
