    Sharpton ratted him out.

    If this guy is was bad and Christie knew it, you have to wonder why he hired him in the first place? Either Christie is not very bright, or he hired him because he was looking for someone with those ‘special’ qualities.

    Evidently not quite as smart as he imagined. In fact, I don’t think the average guy makes mistakes like that. Poor fellow, significantly below average it appears. Guess he’ll have to become a conservative.

    “He also declined to say that the biggest mistake of his presidency was telling Americans if they liked their health care they could keep it “. Maybe there are much worse thing that he’s done that we just don’t know about yet.

    God bless you Caveman. You’re unique and have a purpose, even if no one else recognized it. I’m an army brat who lost both parents early, but still can’t begin to really know what kids like you have gone through. All children (and adults) that have no one to turn to for love and acceptance will be forever in my prayers.

    Epic fail! When Yeltsin got up on the tank, Gorbachev was President and there was a coup going on. If memory serves, he stood up on the tank as a part of the protest to keep the government from using force on it’s politicians and citizens (as the New Republic is evidently now advocating be done in Washington).

    I’ve seen the film clip a couple of times now, and haven’t seen anyone mention the fact that the guy with the head-cam was specifically tracking the guy who pulled in front of the SUV. Somehow the guy with the head-cam knew to keep the camera trained on the guy who got bumped. I don’t know what happened earlier to make these guys mad, but cutting off the SUV when the guy got bumped was premeditated. Everything else that precipitated after that was a result of that original plan. The bikers in the video should be charged for every aspect of the incident from that time forward.

    Just an extra word – if I accidentally cut you off when you’re riding your motorcycle; I’m truly sorry. If you can’t accept that and attack my car, me and S&W will make you regret that you weren’t more forgiving.

    Where did they get this video of President Obama’s new nominee for Homeland Security?

    Pledging allegiance to a President instead of the constitution, country, or flag! This is the most un-American thing I’ve ever heard. Unfortunately, we all complain about how left-leaning the college professors are, especially in liberal arts; and our teachers were all indoctrinated there. We need to have the same strict policies against bringing political views into our schools as we do against bringing the bible. The only difference is that they are teaching the religion of humanism.

    To be clear, I don’t support the way Ted Cruz is going about stopping Obamacare; I think there is a much cleaner, better, and longer term solution that has not been talked about. But, unlike a lot of people on this site, I still have great respect for what McCain did earlier in his life. Nevertheless, the man needs to retire. His mind is going and his memory has gone. His revisionist viewpoint is the same one that is being propagated by the Democrats over and over. The law’s supporters like to tell us that, ‘the people have spoken, it was fairly won, and Obamacare is the law’. Nothing to see here; move right along. The people didn’t ‘speak’ on Obamacare, and it wasn’t fairly won. As I recall, the healthcare plan was smuggled into law during the middle of the night by Democrats exploiting the administrative procedures of the reconciliation process, specifically because they didn’t have the votes to pass it fairly. If proponents of a belief can force something into law by exploiting a flawed political process, then they should expect their opponents to attempt the same. Has McCain been in Washington so long now that he thinks legislating is just a chess game, and that principles no longer matter? If it is a chess game, John McCain is still playing checkers. Maybe politicians should just quit playing games and spend more time thinking of what is in the best interests of the country.

    Did anyone notice that the Principal is a Harvard grad. You can find him on linkedin.

    That makes us mercenaries; the world pays us to do the fighting. Anybody else see a problem with sending our young men and women to their deaths just to advance the causes of foreign powers? Obama’s finally found that revenue stream he needs to fund his health care program.

    Most seem to have missed the fact that Kerry never answered the important question – “Duncan then asked Kerry whether the White House has been involved in any way in arming Syrian rebels and whether it has transferred arms to Syria via Libya.” We should not stop asking this until someone answers. This is the question that will end careers and change the way Americans view this President.

    Come on now. This is no different than when Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Eleanor Norton said someone should be fired a couple of years ago for using the word ‘niggardly’ in a public forum. Words have meaning, and you shouldn’t get offended if you don’t know what the meaning is and jump to your own conclusions. Buy a dictionary.

    The clue ‘Shylock’ was followed by e.g. (exemplī grātiā), which means ‘for example’. The character ‘Shylock’ was an example of lots of things: money lender, man, Jew, etc. (means ‘and so on’ – hidden sarcasm…).

    Much as I dislike the ambiguity of most crossword clues, this one was accurate.

    People really have to get over this PC oppression which makes us afraid to say anything lest we offend someone. Usually we hear it from the book-burners on the left, but every now-and-then some conservative-wannabe decides that they want to throw their own selection of ideas onto the pyre. I’m not advocating thoughtless disregard for how words make others feel, I’m just asking people to use some common sense based upon intent and impact.

    There are a lot of issues here, but has it bothered anyone else that the sixteen year old son of a multi-millionaire is pretty much illiterate?

    If people can be forced to give up their rights (even secretly), then maybe they weren’t rights to begin with…just privileges. I worked at NSA for 10 years, and know well the methodology used for this kind of collection. I’m not sure whether or not I agree with the current program, but what I definitely don’t agree with is the secrecy.

    This never should have been a secret program. It should have been presented to the American people at it’s inception…arguments made on both sides…and the people (or their representatives) should have been able to decide, under the light of scrutiny, what they were willing to give up for the increased security. I don’t know how it is everywhere, but when I lived in Maryland you couldn’t tape a phone call unless you informed the party you were taping. As I said, I’m not sure where I stand yet on the actual collection issue, but it should have (and still should be) debated.

    No one seems to have really listened to the content of Pelosi’s remarks. She actually said that they need to put in place laws to prevent religious profiling with technology (50:00-50:25). Does anyone realize what that would do to our ability to spot people being radicalized? No monitoring of fundamentalist websites or forums to identify people that are getting drawn into groups that use violence to spread their messages. No matter what happens with the rest of this spying scandal, this is an idea we should really be worried about. Pelosi needs to be asked to clarify her stance on law enforcement’s targeting of fundamentalist websites.

    I’m listening to the hearings live right now on CSPAN. Why is it that I’ve yet to hear anyone ask or discuss the political affiliations of the specific people accused of doing the targeting. If they want to know if there were political motivations, the first thing they should look at is the political activity of the perps. If they were actively campaigning or soliciting, then that would immediately put an end to the claims of no political motivation. Who were these people exactly, and what is their politics? Maybe we should make them fill out intrusive questionnaires.

    Everybody buy your insurance from the NRA. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the pants. An anti-gun bill that increases support and funding for an organization that fights to protect gun owners. There is justice.

  • May 16, 2013 at 11:46am

    Disclaimer: I’m a retired army NCO, but do not own a gun and am not a member of the NRA. I also believe that just because something is sensationalistic doesn’t mean it’s not true.

    The bigger issue in my mind is not that insurance increases the cost of gun ownership, pushing some out of the market (though this is very troubling). The tangential effects of requiring insurance are profound. What an insurance requirement will do (even if it’s not the intent), is create a de facto registry of all gun owners with more intrusive information than any other proposal that’s ever been circulated by the anti-gun crowd. Insurance companies won’t take the risk of selling insurance without detailed information on the usage, home life, etc. of the intended insuree. This information would then be easily accessible by authorities whenever they needed it. Imagine all the personal information that would have to go into an insurance application. Wow! Talk about an ambitious workaround to stop gun ownership and gather the names of everyone who buys anyway. Even worse, guns already owned are not grandfathered, so for the first time ever in the history of our country, the Government would be able to get a record of every gun you owned, not just the ones newly purchased. I wonder what they could do with that information…hmmmm.

    Benign intent is never a guarantee of good behavior.
