    Excuse me Mr. Speaker – just because you were HAVING tea parties with your liberal progressive democrat and your liberal progressive Rhino friends before the Tea Party erupted as a ticked off organization that hates progressives does not mean you were or are US. In the words of Ronald Reagan “I know the Tea Party, and you sir are no Tea Party.”

    And, if you believe so much in the branches of government, how about you actually play your part and hold the President accountable for all the violations of the constitution of his administration instead of flying the white flag all day? Where are you on the whole phone and a pen routine Johnny?

    I have never seen a man strain so hard to get to a set of talking points and contort so far to avoid the truth. If I were a reporter in the room I would have burst out laughing at high volume and ruined the film clip for all the mass media that are buying this b.s.

    He’s lied to you about Benghazi.

    Accomplished nothing with trillions in stimulus.

    Partied hard at the White House on your dime.

    And tossed the Constitution on its head.

    Give him your personal information at Healthcare.gov!

    Obama has your best interest at heart….honest.

    I noticed that also. He clearly was aiming and getting ready to put the second shot into the companion. I also noted what appears to be an absolute lack of any response by others in the room. There is even someone in the back corner facing the shooter that should have easily seen him holding a gun in a ready stance way before the shot and yet at least three other people in the place never turn to look and hardly move at the sound of the gunshot. I can’t imagine these others not flinching or heading toward the floor or back door. Something just seems very wrong about this whole scene like everyone in the room knew what was coming except the guy that was shot.

    except that has to be a lie since I’ve never seen Hillary happy over anything at anytime. Telling the media you will be happy to testify and actually showing up when requested without some “scheduling concern” is another and then being there and actually testifying on the truth rather than talking points and delay tactics of I have no recollection, I would have to get back to you on that, I’m not sure what you are asking, and I would rather not speculate. Bottom line, Hillary has NOT intention of testifying unless forced to do so and even then no intention of telling anything close to the truth or taking accountability for anything. Trey Gowdy is perhaps one of the very few that at least wants real answers to something more important than Obama’s beer recipe.

    Holder would have and probably did give the same answers in his confirmation hearings. What matters here is what ought to be done now that we know his words are meaningless and his actions dangerous. I care less about what this woman says than asking her point blank for a promises to look into the outgoing administration and A.G. for criminal misconduct. The next AG selected ought to either accept responsibility and accountability for all previous actions and be willing to say they were without flaw OR be saying that they are angered and offended at the activity and intend as soon as appointed to get in there and clean house and hold folks responsible. Otherwise – what is the point in all this “I don’t know, I can’t hypothesize, I would have no idea about that, that isn’t something I would speculate on.”

    I think he read the company motto wrong – “When you absolutely positively have to go there…U. P. yes?

    Hang on a minute, by BS meter just pegged and my idiot alarm is blaring.

    O.K., now what were you saying Mr. Karl, I didn’t catch that?

    The problem here is the article does not fully quote the dress code. The 2″ strap allows a dress to be used but does not fulfill the rest of the requirement that involves either sleeves OR using a bolero or shall “if worn at all times” to cover the shoulder. A dress that has sleeves is considered “formal wear”. A spaghetti string top, sleeveless, backless, high slit etc are examples of fashion wear and stylish – but in this case not in dress code. Thus, she was not asked to get a different dress with wider straps, she was asked to get the required shawl or shrug. Something my girls and wife do all the time for “formal” events when they can’t find a dress with sleeves at the store (a very common problem). She chose not to bring one. She was left with a choice of a winter jacket because of her options she was in control of, not the school. Not every dance is formal. The rules were not arbitrary school enforced code, it was a single formal dance with voluntary attendance and lots of other dance themes yearly to select from. Unlike the EPA that has an agenda to steal your property rights and even your land – hardly the same thing. No school runs the Prom and the valentine dance and a Sadie Hawkins dance under the same rules. The EPA likes to compare a rain forest and your back yard creek under the same rules.

    But the truth of it is that the lemmings are the ones choosing to be distracted and sedated with NFL, movies, tabloids, and alcohol. For the most part it isn’t the Gov. controlling us. The Romans didn’t force the peasants to come to the coliseum to watch the sport of Gladiators. It took everything Moses could do to persuade the Jews to follow him out of Egypt and leave slavery of the Pharaoh, and they immediately complained they would rather go back as soon as they were asked to fight to be free. Being free and being engaged in freedom is hard work most people will avoid. Humans love to be distracted from misery through things that prevent them from exiting misery. Don’t have a job? Play X-box 19 hours a day and complain about the cost of college to forget your problems instead of going to the library and learning marketable skills for free. The problem isn’t a lack of opportunity or answers, it is the unwillingness to open ones eyes over fear of seeing the truth in the mirror.

    Poor guy. Imagine the gall the NFL and the team has to expect this amazing human god to provide any kind of service or exercise any kind of effort. Don’t they realize that he is a very wealthy man? Don’t they understand that other than playing a game he ought to have zero responsibilities? Do they not realize that he is among the elite of the elite, raised on a pedestal above and beyond the normal folk? For some reason though I can’t remember how he got rich or where the money came from. I can’t seem to remember what allows him the support, training, staffing, and time to play a game at such a high level. I can’t even remember who selected him and recognized him to join the elite and brought him to the pedestal in which he now sits when so many others sink to obscurity.

    I’d ask him to remind me the answers to such questions, but I’m sure he would just say “I’m just here so I won’t get fined”. Perhaps he doesn’t know the answer either.

    I will say I have no problem remembering why I despise most professional athletes and prefer to watch high school and elementary school sports. It is just a game folks. Meanwhile the man who shot Bin Laden is unemployed, dealing with serious adjustment issues, and will be lucky to “get by” for the rest of his life. Our priorities are AFU folks. I’d love to be able just to give this man’s “fine” to a person like Marcus Latrell or the SEAL that killed Bin Laden. Play football in a minefield if you want to impress me your worth the wage.

    I’ve followed Tulsi from when she was a local community rep. I hate to say it, but Gabbard is the best Hawaii can produce, and soon to go the way of the dodo bird. You simply have to have a “D” next to your name to get elected in Hawaii – and Gabbard has continually spoken common sense. She is an old fashioned Democrat, a Reagan Democrat if you will. The unfortunate part is that the libs in this state now have her number and I would be very surprised if she is able to hold on past her next election. She is doing way too good a job so obviously she is going to have to go as she threatens the current Democratic party by setting a bar far too high. Watch – she will be targeted and destroyed by her own party using another democrat to run against her. Representing your constituents needs and desires is just not going to be tolerated and this ridiculous constitution and patriotism stuff is heresy among the liberals. Of course if she realizes or admits that her views and practices are more Republican / conservative than her party and shifts to place an “R” next to her name – then I believe she would be arrested at the airport by HPD and tossed to the sharks or into a volcano faster than you can say Aloha Union Worker!

    You, with your words like knives
    And swords and weapons that you use against me,
    You, have knocked me off my feet again,
    Got me feeling like I’m nothing.
    You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard
    Calling me out when I’m wounded.
    You, pickin’ on the weaker man.

    Well you can take me down,
    With just one single blow.
    But you don’t know, what you don’t know,

    Someday, I’ll be living in a big old city,
    And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.
    Someday, I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me,
    And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.
    Why you gotta be so mean?

    Always like this young lady – a class act. Just hope she can beat the odds and remain grounded and unique in an industry that has continually chewed up and destroyed so many. The real test comes not when you are riding on top of the awards shows, it comes as you begin to slide off the top and loose the attention. Will she claw and fight at all costs to remain or will she gracefully allow her moments of fame to pass into the history books content with remaining herself. I certainly hope she retains dignity above fame.

    Right – Church/private schools never have dress codes or tell students what to wear. (sarc)

    I fully agree we need to get Gov out of education – but your argument is absolutely ridiculous. We argue how immoral and how damaging public education has been to moral decency with abortion, gay rights, and communism shoved in our kids faces and then you want to slam a school for having an “elective dance” that requires a dress code. Some people are clueless on what they want or what it looks like – they just like to complain I guess. I would be happy with a school that provides teaching moments about civil decorum and manners. Would you be happier with a high school twerking party or a open forum anything goes dance, come in bikinis, thongs, whatever you want no rules?
    The sad part here is not the dress code. The sad part is having raised two daughters I will tell you that it can take WEEKS to actually find a dress in standards at a store today for a TEEN. One that isn’t low cut, backless, strapless, high slit, and tight as nylons. The problem is the message we are sending girls that they MUST be sexualized for boys. Our media tells these girls to dress like street walkers and then rub it in the faces of boys not to look, eyes up boy here, control yourself, don’t make comments! I don’t blame girls for rape or encouraging sexual discrimination and I don’t condone or excuse bad male conduct either. But get real. Dress codes are relevant.

    As I said, she looked lovely. But she wasn’t in dress code which did not have anything to do with “too sexual” or risqué shoulders. It wasn’t designed around sharia law, it was a set of standards to force the kids to go out and get something special to wear.
    If this had been about a boy refused entry for not wearing a tie who then went out to the car and got a long sock to wear around his neck and felt humiliated for being forced to wear a sock and ranted about what is wrong with showing my neck, you would all laugh him out of the room. If you don’t like dress codes – don’t go to dress code events. And if you think dress codes are only about forcing kids to comply with “the man” (ie big brother, the gov. etc.) then why stop with the argument about the coat – why did they ask girls to wear dresses at all? Why can’t girls wear jeans and a halter top and boys wear basketball shorts and shirtless? The time to argue against a dress standard is at the dance planning committee before the dance, not at the front door at the dance or after the dance is over.

  • [4] January 28, 2015 at 11:40am

    I’m going against the grain on this one folks.
    First – the dress code was not to de-sexualize girls. It is clearly stated as a standard, easily measurable, and used to assist the students to learn to pay attention to detail, learn “formality and decorum”. These students will someday be invited to dinner parties, awards ceremonies and other formal events and knowing how to dress is important. If you have a math test and the instructions are “use pencil only” and you use ink you don’t scream “what is this discrimination against pens!” Sometimes rules are their just to introduce civil cooperation.
    This students dress is lovely. Unfortunately it does not comply with the clear rules in effect. She was not told she was too sexual, she was told it did not comply. She was not forced to wear her winter coat, she chose not to bring the authorized shall or a dress that included sleeves. In fact, she wasn’t forced to even come to the dance not to stay. But all those at the dance who read the rules and followed them should not have to deal with someone who simply wants to rebel or make a statement. Hollywood loves the rebel when it comes to wearing meat to the Oscars or intentionally creating a wardrobe malfunction for the cameras, but the truth is we deserve events of seriousness, respect, formality, and style where we get to feel it is something other than the normal everyday event.

    No, they didn’t add a category that makes them look stupid, they added yet ANOTHER category that proves they are stupid to go along with all the other categories that demonstrate they are stupid.

    Maybe Miss Canada, or at least her set designer, ought to know something about Hockey before trying to depict it. I don’t know much about hockey but I would guess that there never has been a REAL hockey game ever with a 20 to 14 score in the 3rd period. Who in the world selected that backdrop?

    Call the NFL. We found out the cause of the loss of ball pressure.
