    If you break the rules, then you suffer the consequences, but I have to say that something is being left out simply because using company email to put out feelers for something like this doesn’t seem like it would be against policy. Seeing as how Fundraisers and Charities are something organizations like news agencies are prone to do… she must have really ticked off someone over procedural issues, or there is some kind of blowback just waiting to happen if she were to proceed. Not exactly the best wording, but I think you can glean what I’m trying to say here…

    My problem with all this Glenn bashing is that you people are taking it out of context. Glenn never said you can’t use guns. Never said you can’t protect yourself, your property, your family. He was specifically referring to protests, events that were transpiring, shouts for armed revolution, etc.
    If you stop and think for just a moment – you are jumping all over something you are just creating in your own minds and getting ticked off about, then taking it out on the biggest person you can.
    If you’re going to go to a protest, are you seriously going to pack heat and start shooting? I’m talking about a protest here. If ‘the feds show up’ at your house for some stupid reason, are you going to risk your family’s lives by opening fire immediately without finding out what is going on first?
    This is the dumbest argument and attack on another person I’ve ever seen and it makes me wonder who you people really are. Who cares anyway? How many times have we all discussed the agree to disagree mantra?
    Glenn isn’t about to leave his gun on the table if someone somehow breaks into his house. Participating in a march / protest however – I see his point. Why bash him for his views – he’s been consistent with that particular view whether you like it or not.
    Anyway, what good does it do. Love him or hate him. Let it go already sheesh.

    @St.Heretic – Your name appears to go with your attitude. I don’t think Buck needs to be a part of your rant against Beck does it? Giving a young man props for having made a relatively quick rise among the ranks is no reason to go on a Beck rampage. Use another story that is more ‘Beckified’ to vent your frustrations, or better yet, take your own advice and unsubscribe, and quit coming here.
    I’m impressed with Buck’s clear and precise presentation of things, ability to translate topics to your average caller and take things head on in an articulate manner. I’m glad to see him succeeding in such a great way.
    Also, I can see your criticism just fine. Not sure what got deleted, but it seems your rant is plenty visible for all to see.
    Unless you *are* for the violence and rage you speak of – then why are you even upset in the first place. I don’t recall a single condescending remark he made. Simply emphatically restated his case of what his ideals are. Don’t like it, go away.
    The only ‘tools’ here are the people still whining about it instead of being gone. Like Glenn always says – don’t have to agree all the time. I certainly don’t completely on this count, but doesn’t mean I hate the man for it. Wooptee-Doo.

    What the hell are people supposed to call all of us anymore? Take your pick – downs syndrome, epilepsy, CP, aspergers, all types of neurological and physical handicaps…
    The PC Police change the language almost daily. The only people getting ‘hurt’ by language are everyone being *told* they should be hurt. Words are words. Descriptors are just that.
    I have epilepsy, a neurological disorder, or much easier – (even though they are controlled now) I have seizures. Or I’m a nut, brain case, *gasp* retarded. Better yet ‘My kind of folks’ generally require certain kinds of meds, treatments, and have certain restrictions.
    Sorry, but I can’t stand this stuff. I would say handicapped is about as far as it ever needed to go. Crippled and Retarded were never bad until a group of snobs made them bad.

    I think everyone has way too easy to bruise egos here. Although Glenn was a bit long-winded about it for my taste – all he said in a nutshell was – if you are for violence, then I don’t want you to associate yourself with me because that is not what I stand for. I’ve been preaching victory through peace for a long time, and I’m concerned about the conversations about violence I’m hearing.

    Ok, so that’s how he feels. That’s what he’s telling you. You’re gonna pout about it, get your feelings hurt because he came out and emphatically stated his position? Maybe sounded a little ‘lecture-ish’ even?

    Whoopty-doo. I know that my entire family is armed to the teeth ever since I was a little kid we’ve always had guns. None of us are afraid to use them if it comes down to it. However, it is *really* going to have to come down to it of course. I’m not going to stand there and take a beating though.

    I commend Glenn for his values and beliefs. I understand that a *visible* portrayal – especially in these days and times – of ‘evil’ beating the tar out of the ‘good’ peaceful peoples will win over any side for about any cause. Problem is – who will cover it?

    Any way you look at it. This is still the best one-stop shop for interesting programming that I can pick and choose. I don’t have to be friends with the man, nor do I want to be. I still like to hear all the people here. Buck, Doc, Pat, Stu, Dana, Glenn, etc.

    So sick of this crap. Sorry you plugged your battery in wrong and it exploded. Let’s hype it up as much as possible and everyone jump on board and see if we can get these devices banned.

    Smokers should have to pay for their sins. They should not have an alternative. They should not be able to ‘have an easy way out’. They’re smokers, they have a nasty habit, and they must be held in contempt of public for their nasty habit.

    That is all it is imho. I’ve been using e-cigs for years and although I am down to no-nic now, I still enjoy the habit of ‘vaping’ or whatever you want to call it.

    People misusing devices to get high? Really? That’s the reason to ban them? Nobody ever drilled out the center of a cig and stuffed it with ‘stuff’ before e-cigs? Nobody ever got high at work before e-cigs? It’s new, it doesn’t make your house, clothes, car, and environment stink thereby making the lives of those around you better… so let’s get rid of it. Genius.

    I don’t know about a church ministry being formed around fighting. However I think there needs to be a complete re-birth of what fighting actually is. There has been yet another slow burn of political BS regarding boxing, martial arts, you name it. As kids, we had FUN. I mean a LOT of fun in wrestling, boxing, and judo. Guess what one of the best things it teaches you? How to be able to take verbal and physical injury – WITHOUT the aftermath of any ill will. People seem to hate sportsmanship anymore. It is sad. We could literally beat the crap out of each other, taunt, fight, etc. At some point everyone will lose badly. Then, go get pizza and pop afterward and be laughing and having a great time together right after with no hard feelings whatsoever. Life lessons that just can’t be beaten. Confidence and tolerance that can never be taken away. All people like to promote is the occasional freak of the week from any sport. How many thousands out there are never heard from? All the good men and women that walk on with the lessons they learned and keep with them. Terrible huh? Find you average decent man that grew up boxing or wrestling in high school, you will more often than not find a man without any history of spousal or family abuse. They learned how to handle it and refraining – turning the other cheek – is easy. Something to stop and think about. Just my 2 cents.

    It has been used as a seizure control option since… forever. I have epilepsy and I’mm one of the lucky ones who found a particular combo of meds that keeps me seizure free finally. There are many cases however that there is simply no combination of meds that will get the seizures to completely stop, the migranes to end, the aftermath of a big seizure to be any less painful.
    There really are medical uses for it, and this is one that really benefits from it. I know some people think it’s a sham to get pot, and I’m sure there are plenty of people that abuse the need for it, but man does it help a lot of people.

  • April 1, 2014 at 7:51pm

    There are a lot of farmers out there, way out in the middle of nowhere, that have to dig a lot of post holes every year. I’m sure there are a few a little deeper than usual with some extra ‘filler’ at the bottom to help stabilize all that concrete.

  • March 31, 2014 at 9:23pm

    It’s all coming undone. I’m only 41 this year. I know I keep saying it, but I never thought I would see this stuff happening. Ever, much less so fast, demoralizing, and with absolute intent. People can BS al they want but it is absolutely with complete malice and agenda that they take away liberties like this.
    I try not to let it get to me, but all this crap is piling on higher and faster and it is beginning to make me ill. Ugh.

    Your alias does not appear to provide much insight into your actual persona. Like to bait and see what you get is that it? Ok I’ll bite since I’m up for another few min…
    - Officials and those same rescuers you refer to aren’t allowing those ‘loving religious people’ to wade in and help – for good reason.
    – Why? Because then they have to go and rescue all the idiots that although might have good intentions, have no idea what they are doing. Just causing more grief than good.
    - The idea of helping out one’s community when the need arises is just that. Being a pillar of the community whenever possible.
    – Very few people are independently wealthy to be able to pick up and travel anywhere, any time as you attempt to infer. Whenever need arises, the local and surrounding communities are called upon as they should be.
    – The best way to ‘help this man out’ is stay the heck out of the way, not get stcuk your own stupid self, and offer every support you can to the survivors and the rescuers as they come in from the scenes.

    Yep. Read the story – it all pretty much sums up everything you’re looking for, you just don’t want to see it and wish there was a way to put *all* religious people into some sort of goofy box. Well, enjoy that little fantasy. Whatever works best for you to cope with whatever issues you might have. We all deal with something, might as well be religion I guess.
    Later tater.

    You are sick. Regardless of what you claim about yourself, regardless of what you claim about Glenn, the idea of slamming somebody when there has been a loss in the family is absolutely vile. You seriously are an ill person that needs help with your emotional issues. Spiritually you are either traumatized or simply over-dramatic to the point of seeking attention. I sincerely hope you find your just rewards, and I am not referring to some sort of positive afterlife experience you might somehow envision for your self-indulgent person.
    It isn’t a matter of being a ‘beck-bot’ or whatever you would like to hide behind – it is just a matter of being a decent human being in a time of mercy regardless of agreeing or disagreeing with the man’s faith. Ugh. My stomach is turning even thinking about people like you. Hope you enjoy your banter. Good day.

    Sorry, I love dogs and hate to see them hurt much less dead, but the neighbor is completely responsible for this. I have to deal with this crap all the time and I’m sick of it. Ok I’ve been sick of it for a long time. The OWNERS need to start being hauled off and charged for these kinds of incidents and I think the problems will at least start to diminish a little.
    I hate that the guy killed it instead of calling animal retrieval, but he had every right in my book to do what he did, albeit over the top to post a pic of himself with the aftermath.
    Sick and tired of the anti-tattoo, piercing, sweater, stroller, whatever – the animal can’t give consent people. Well the animal can’t give consent to be a pet either but guess what? It has a loving home. You see what I see and realize you end up killing all those cozy pets that get taken away and put to sleep when they can’t find a new home. All the horrible situations of animals out there and you people cause way more harm than good. Go climb a tree.

    Just more BS from people that are still upset they got spankings when they were kids, didn’t end up where they wanted to be in life, hate teir parents for some unassociated reason, and think that spankings must be the root of all relationship problems. Therefore, spankings must be bad.
    I got my butt beat pretty regularly because… I pretty regularly deserved it! At 40 years old I have no issues wondering if my parents love me or not, I’ve never thought ‘boy I hated those spankings… I think I should go do something bad to someone else because of them’, or any other negative outcome I can think of.
    Other than at the time I was thinking ‘Oh crap this is gonna smart! Stoopid Stoopid Stoopid!’ lol

    Didn’t you get your letter?

  • March 15, 2014 at 12:08pm

    @jackp – I think that is the point though… you, myself, or anyone else that might have made the mistake, (I haven’t done so, but nearly have. Had to stop short a couple of times I admit) we would accept and pay the consequences for our actions. However bad that might be.

  • March 15, 2014 at 12:05pm

    I’m going to defend on this… if you can’t take sarcasm.. how can you possibly deal with forums of any kind anywhere? Good grief, as someone with a ‘disorder’, used to be a heavy smoker, and am overweight myself – although I admit not by a lot.. I’ve been on the receiving end of plenty of sarcastic remarks and that’s all it is. Sarcasm. If someone gets in your face and belittles you that is one thing. A generalized sweeping comparative remark, made in jest, at nobody in particular is just stupid to get upset about.
    Guess what that does? Nothing but cause grief for people where there was none to begin with. Comments and accusations for nothing are where all the Political Correctness crap started.
    Something to think about anyway.

    I’m just loving the fact that he’s not holding back about it. ‘Hellzyeah I saved peoples’ lives… no I’m not a hero per se, but you better believe I saved their lives.’ (paraphrased)
    Not you usual hokey ‘aw shucks, I didn’t do nothin really…’ garbage.
    Serious props for being a man and not being the least bit afraid to pound your chest a little. :)

  • March 15, 2014 at 9:35am

    Boy that’s no joke. I’ve seen a couple of extended family just go down into a tailspin overtheir spouse or in the other case their mother getting sick and dying. Normal, everyday people you’ve always known can just completely self-destruct and sometimes in really bad ways.
    I am really glad this kid found a way to focus on something for his Dad that was just focused on ‘doing something for Dad’, rather than ‘frying himself in futility’ as it were.

    Not to mention, I was helping to mow the lawn using the ‘second bar’ on the push mower when I was 5 years old. Dad mowed the shape of the yard into a square and I took over. Accidents just happen. Nothing happened to me, yet my mother who was mowing the lawn one time had a rock shatter and shattered her shin bone, burying 3/4 the way through the muscle. We’d all mowed over that spot a thousand times… who knew a rock would magically be hiding in the grass that some neighbor kid threw in the yard?
    What if I had happened to be ‘helping’ with the lower bar on the mower? Would people be blaming my mother? Unfortunately today they would be. Sad isn’t it?
