    An interesting man with an interesting history to be sure.
    For the sake of clarity, how did a man who died in 1861 own and breed slaves “after the war” (June 1865 and beyond)?

    Prepare to be amazed, then. (If I understood that double-negative correctly.)
    Ebola virus is comparatively difficult to spread; harder than, say, HIV. Would you expect a cop to become infected with HIV simply by entering the apartment of and HIV-infected suspect? Do we quarantine the family members of HIV-positive people? Ebola virus is spread in the same manner as common STD viruses: blood (or bodily fluid)-to-blood transfer. The media are engaged in wholesale fear-mongering on this issue and it is in their interest to perpetuate ignorance. So, you can be excused for not knowing the truth.
    What people fear is a virus that doesn’t exist in nature- a fictional, weaponized version of ebola which would be truly horrible.
    As hard as it is to imagine during this ‘transparent’ administration, the CDC has been playing it pretty straight with the public. The media, no surprise, has not.

    Yes, it would be brave to accept her fate. BUT that is exactly what she is not doing.
    That we will all die is not at issue here. She believes that she can see the future with 100% accuracy and has determined that there is only one possible outcome- and she is wrong. She is behaving selfishly and in an immature manner (‘if you don’t agree with me I’m gonna hold my breath’).
    And to top it off she is destroying the ability of her husband to associate his birthday with anything but pain and loss (possibly pity…)

    I don’t agree with all that you said. Every individual has the right to express themselves AND they must also accept the consequences of those actions. You should celebrate the hospital’s response here- they responded to an employee whom they believed had acted inappropriately ( I disagree.)
    Remember, the government cannot punish idiotic speech (1A), only society and private enterprise can. If idiotic speech is not punished, it flourishes- as we’ve all seen.

    I’m amazed. Here the Blaze posts a story about a young person… pictured in a hoodie… who steals something… and there is not even one disparaging reference to the current administration. Strains the credibility of the Blaze commenters.

    One article I read said the PD had dash cams but had recently obtained body cams for their officers which had not been deployed. I wonder which got it right? A body cam would likely produce far superior evidence for an in-car altercation. Moot point, though; neither seems to be available.

    This list cannot be taken seriously.
    Even I know that Jay Leno has more serious cars than an SLR McLaren at $500k. His $1.4M McLaren P1 comes to mind…

    To the best of my knowledge, Sharia law is far less tolerant of homosexuality than western systems.
    First amendment issue, yes, but not a free-speech issue. This deals with free expression of religion.

    Aww, come on, Guys! He was just recovering his brass so he could reload ‘em. You know, on account of the price of ammo is just ridiculous these days. And don’t forget that brass might just FOD an innocent lowrider on the street.

    I realize Mr. Reid holds himself out as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but I wonder if he wouldn’t be more comfortable leaving us ‘English’ and joining the Amish faith…

    So, if the officer DID NOT see his weapon the first time he passed him, what grounds did he have for coming back to stop him?
    If the officer DID see the weapon the first time then his whole case is nullified.
    I think Mr. Pierce is right about this one- it stinks.

    Thank you, Blaze. I never thought I would say this but that match was the most hilarious sporting event I’ve seen in long time. Couldn’t stop laughing- got the boss’ attention though.

    Chips- I think you might have mistyped. The new F150 will have a steel frame and an aluminum composite body (a combination which has been used in cars for quite some time.) This supposedly saves “up to 700 pounds” depending on configuration. Lighter, certainly, yet still in excess of 5,000 pounds.

    I would submit that performing this act at 61 years of age says that there is no “You next” in this man. He more than likely had already done his part prior to Sunday.

    Well done, Marine.

    A speedy recovery to them both.

    The righteous exercise of priesthood power knows no bounds.

    This is most unfortunate. This government contractor is giving a black eye to the private sector and encouraging (enabling) more power grabs by the federal government. Come on, folks! The administration doesn’t need our help to grow and grab.

    Two-Bits- you are correct: the shoes appear to be on feet which are still attached to the victim. The Daily News’ photo IS altered- the leg wounds are covered (probably better to blur an image than to insert false data.) I’m afraid The Blaze’s description of the original photo is somewhat sensationalistic (maybe even inaccurate.) Perhaps they believe the running shoe lying nearby belongs to the victim?

    I don’t know… SIG SAUER firearms seem to do the job.

    Actually, the union made it quite clear that the cartoon is intended for the union membership. Apparently it takes a cartoon to indoctrinate our ‘educators.’
