An inexpensive solution to a problem. I’ve actually seen this used in the US to light chicken coops.

When my children were little, we carried a “splat mat” with us that we put under their high chairs. When we were done, we folded it up, with their crumbs in it. As a result, we got the best service in every restaurant we visited by a very grateful wait staff. Another benefit- our children learned to recognize how their behavior affected others and to strive to minimize any negative affect. Our daughter has learned the “shopping cart” test to any man she may consider in her life: if he doesn’t return a shopping cart to the store after loading up his car, he is a self-centered loser.
You can bet the alinsky radicals are prepping a facebook flash mob.
The bait-- looting, greed. None care about trayvon any more than they do any # of 100s in chicago every month.
Wipe them out; wipe them ALL out...
(sick and friggin' tired of mob rule - they don't want fairness or justice - they just want to get their way all the time just like a brat throwing a trantrum - ya want somepin' to cry about? We'll give you somepin'!!)

I know this is a serious story, and I appreciate the insights of the serious minded, but oh my word – some of these comments are a riot! Blaze readers have a sharp sense of humor. Thank you for the laugh!
Using the word 'riot', for this article, is a poor-choice of words.....
I think it was actually picked deliberately...considering the context of the comment.
A gruesome story from an obviously uncivilized society at a game and you think the jokes are funny? You people would probably eat popcorn with the Romans watching the lions eat the Christians. Sickening. How about nailing Jesus on a cross? Like that one? And yes, I have a sense of humor and participate when the subject matter is not evil. This one clearly is. And Nero played on....
You better get used to seeing this stuff now because the we will see it in America at some point in the near future I'm afraid. The rest of the world sees this sort of thing all the time but we have been kind of insulated from it here in the US. That won't be for much longer.
You know granny, I've had to listen and see a lot of the horrors people have unleashed upon themselves and others. In my experience, sometimes there's just something about the situation that you can't help but laugh at. I mean really, when was the last time outside a history textbook you heard of somebody being "drawn and quartered" with their head placed on a pike? I thought the Muslim's decapitating people was barbaric, this is truly awe inspiring.
My point is, it's okay to be horrified and disgusted by something, at the same time, it's okay to laugh and joke at the utter unbelievability and insanity of the situation. People deal with the absolute madness that is the real world in different ways.
I'm with Granny on this one. There is absolutely nothing funny about a mob torturing, killing, and mutilating a person, regardless of who or where it was done. This is no different than the horrific KKK lynchings in America as recent as the 1950's, not all that long ago.
If you think this is funny, then you better take a long hard look at yourself, because the next person this happens to could be you.

Gregory and 4X, thank you for making me laugh. And for the warning, 4X: I will NOT click on the link. As it is, I’m struggling to suppress the distant memory of the song…..

“Newark, Del., residents Bob and Suzay Cross said while they were not opposed to the rally, they would have preferred to see “less religion and more patriotism,”
Hello? Did they miss the part where this is one of eight planned church services on the beach??? Wouldn’t want to mention God in a church service…..
If they were offended they were free to leave. Some people!
They probably don't mind religion either as long as no one is preaching about God.
Delaware has 3 counties. Newark is in the northern most County and most populated and most. The other 2 counties are less populated and more conservative. 1500 people showing is a lot.

Lindsey Graham is the poster child for what is wrong with the Republican Party. He is unashamedly telling us to abandon our principles in exchange for the possibility of political power. And he doesn’t see why we don’t trust him and this party anymore? They have traded everything that has made America unique and the most successful nation in the history of the world in the pursuit of more power for themselves. They have failed to achieve that power because Democrats vote for Democrats, those who desire a watered-down version of America vote for Democrats, and conservatives have become apathetic/resigned or are moving toward independent/libertarian candidates. And still the Lindsey Grahams of the GOP keep telling us to follow their path to destruction. No thank you.
Useful idiots, being used by this administration. The Democrats and Republicans don't care one bit about these people, all they want is a bunch of new voters... new slaves for the plantation. These people need to wake up and realize they are being used.

The secret to a successful marriage? It is a union of three, not two, with God at the head.
Wow, this brought tears to my eyes. It's so refreshing to see and hear about people who are getting married and care so much about the major step they are making in their lives that they take the time to pray to God for guidance. So refreshing!! Absolutely wonderful to hear!

No big deal, it’s just the implementation of a surveillance state and the trampling of our Constitutional rights. Nice to know our Senators have their priorities straight,
They will look back & see their family was 1st priority & not remember any policies or political agenda. They are just following the lead of their dear leader.
Or following the command to not listen so they can say "I didn't know anything about it"

How upside down is this world when the media is defending the spying on citizens and a senator is calling it unjustifiable? I expect to see the Mad Hatter hopping by any minute now.

Oh gee, Spanish being spoken by a representative on the House floor really makes me want to open the borders. Not! Honestly, how is it we have so many inane people “representing” us???

Yup, I’m sure THAT’s right!

The consistent tardiness of this administration is just one more sign of their disdain for the American Public. Serfs should wait patiently for their lords and masters.

Why not monitor the phone calls of members of Congress? Good enough for the goose, good enough for the gander. Oh, but here’s an idea: how about not monitoring any calls without specific and targeted reason? Wow! What a radical concept!

South Carolina, you have a lot to be proud of in Rep.Trey Gowdy. He doesn’t ***** foot around.
