As a teacher I like it when parents take their child’s education seriously. However, what incentive does the kid have now to do better? You already destroyed what he clearly loved. It would have been better to take it away and not give it back until his grades improved. At least then he has some incentive.
I am also not fond of embarrassing the child on youtube.
"I'm also not fond of embarrassing the child on youtube."
Because teachers know what's best!
On the other hand, at least the dad knows what to get him for birthdays and Christmas. Same concept. Working towards a goal.
I have witnessed first-hand what happens to kids who are never disciplined. They will eventually be disciplined by a judge... again, again, and again.
Shame is needed in this society. Responsible behavior is needed. Gaming we can do without completely.
This young man had to take part in the PHYSICAL destruction of his toy. We don't know what dad might have said afterward..but..perhaps a conversation about, 'ok. now..lets get down to business with your schoolwork and re establish your toys, just as you would have to do if you lost a job because of bad performance'..or whatever... The 'pain' of taking part in this punishment will much longer be remembered that it just 'going away'.... yes, we don't have the full story, but by today's measurement, this dad was 'harsh'. And that is the exact problem & the reason we have obese kids, rebellious, obnoxious future citizens running this county. I personally know way too many parents who are afraid too say no to their off spring 'they won't like me'. GOOD. Parenting has nothing to do with being liked..as a child who is being trained. Ask any military unit if they 'liked' their drill Sargent. I can guarantee the answer would be NOOO, but thanks to the pushing and prodding and disciple.. those fighting for our liberty was prepared to protect him/herself & those around them. Spare the rod-spoil the child. We have a whole generation today, of spoiled kids. Parents who guide, say no, and shows love and affection afterward, when things cool down, will raise a wonderful human being. Dad was, from my parenting perspective right on, if this was last resort.

Where was this statement after Ferguson? This is what he should have said then and Baltimore would likely not have happened.

When was the last time the GOP won a standoff that mattered with the Democrats? The collective ass kicking the GOP has taken over the past seven years is astonishing. Even when the people voted the GOP into power, they still continue to get their tail ends handed to them over and over.
You don't get your ass kicked if your on the same team.
I don't mind them losing but I hate it when they don't even try. This was so winnable and they folded like a bad hand.
The GOP kicks their own ass. They are stupid and cowards.

Waiting a couple years will not matter. It does not matter which party is in office the erosion of Christian freedoms has been taking place for many years under many administrations. That will not change.

Start finding shops owned by homosexuals and force them to print things such as Bible versus that condemn homosexuality or slogans against gay marriage. Start using their own tactics against them.
That conflicts with the double standard that's supposed to exist!
That would be very 'un-Christian' and not the path to take unless you want to continue in this vengeance war.
The pastor's position is not new. For a long time it has been said that a religious 'business community' be formed and that contentious issue services be done by contract/membership only. This makes those services a 'private club', and as such, can reject members based on their following of the charter rules. Perfectly legal.
The next salvo from the militant LGBT wing will be to launch boycotts of the private business group and demonize it. When that fails, as it will, their next option will be to try and pressure additional taxes, fines and 'licensing costs' against members of that organization using their Government proxies at the city, county, state and national level.
If that succeeds, you will see the next US Civil War.
i have been advocating that concept for some time. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, as the saying goes. If there can be no discrimination of any time in the free marketplace, then make them dine on their own carcasses. Push back so hard that they cry "uncle" and recognize that the social compact of this constitutional republic (as long as we can keep it) is not a one-way street going only in their direction.
EXCELLENT, BUT ARE THERE ANY SUCH PLACES?
Simply hang a sign in the store window that reads, “All proceeds from same-sex couples will be donated to: “The National Organization for Marriage”.
Looks like a cut and dry issue of
Separation of Church and state to me.
Unfortunately this one goes the way of Gays/government Leaving the Church alone.
Back at yah useful idiots.
It looks like legalizing gay marriage has opened up a Pandora's closet!
Good idea. Muslims already have their sharia compliant businesses and investment funds.
I dont hear anybody complaining about muslims, but wait and see what they say about Christians doing the same thing.
I don't think it's right to return evil for evil. The solution to Christian Persecution isn't to persecute the people who hate us.

ll: Agree. One must use the law to outsmart the activists of the Left . With all of the lawyers in the Republican Party one would hope that one of them is smart enough to take part in this legal chess game...and win.
This pastor's approach ends badly in one of two ways:
1. The gay mafia drops its facade and goes directly after churches, forcing them to perform the weddings (I know it sounds like a long shot, but even 5 years ago, didn't forcing someone to bake a cake for someone seem that way? And besides, this is their real goal anyway, they can't stand higher moral authority, they want the churches to bend just like politicians do).
2. Businesses entering these kinds of contracts are seen as using a proxy to discriminate and are convicted under the thought-police laws anyway. This legal concept already exists in the race, sex, and age discrimination contexts, it's a matter of time before it's applied here.
Start with the entirety of Romans Chapter One. To abbreviate it, take the last 10 - 12 passages.
No, dummy-hate speech even cloaked by religious kookery is NOT protected by any law-nice try bigot!
I bet you wouldn't want them to print for you the bible versus you didn't cherry pick to follow in your religion. Have any shellfish lately? wear anything made of more than one material? how about when your lady is on her period? You know god thinks that is gross and you shouldn't be near her during that time. But that would poke so many holes in what you believe. I guess if you can cherry pick the tenants you want to follow, cherry picking people to treat as people would make sense...
I'm gay, why won't you make me a cake?
I say bake the cake. Just make sure to forget the sugar and add extra salt and garlic.....
Has anyone considered that if the Supreme Court rules against homosexual marriage, that all of this will be a moot point? If the Court rules this way, all states who's citizen's voted against homosexual marriage (33, including California) will have their laws re-instated and all homo marriages nullified. In order for homosexuals to be considered a protected class, like Blacks, the disabled, etc. the court will have to decide, like those groups, if homosexuals are born that way or make a decision to become homo. A person who is born Black, handicapped, etc. cannot make that decision. All the research done in the last 15 years indicates that homosexuality is not congenital. This includes studies (available online) from Stanford and Oxford Universities last year, the APA (American Psychological Association) which stated that they could not find a "gay" gene, which indicates congenital pre-disposition. Remember, this is how abortion was allowed in the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. The Court said they could not determine when life began, and that Congress would have to make the determination via laws. This will be the determining factor in deciding whether homosexual marriage is protected by Constitution or not. The morality or religious aspect won't come into the decision, other than as a consideration of the right of citizens to vote for laws affecting marriage, which historically has been a state right as it is not granted as a power to the federal government.
Someone already tried this. He called 13 gay owned bakeries and was turned down by all of them.
Here's part one.
Tolerance is a one way street with these lunatics.
Don’t paint all homosexuals with the same brush; most of them are on your side believing that people should not be forced to act against their religious beliefs even if that doesn’t benefit the homosexual community. Even homosexuals can believe in individual liberty! Lets not start a war. The activists causing this problem could care less what happens to homosexual shop owners.
That's the human way to do it but we, as Christians, are called to a higher order. I think the pastor is right on here. State very clearly online and in your shop that wedding cakes are not available to the general public and will only be made by contract only between the husband, wife, and church they are to be married in. That's perfect.
Your spelling is lacking. But, your strategy is sound.
We have a friend that has a bakery and 4 employees. He knows that he would be committing suicide if he refused to wait on Q_u-eers and L_i-zz-ies. He sticks it to them when they come in all huggie, kissie and say they are Gay and want to order a wedding cake, usually with some one else running a camera or video. That wedding cake usually ends up with a luggie or two before it's cooked and if he takes a pottie break it meant no washed hands until the next customer and since these are custom cakes they will cost the F_a-gs an extra $15.00.
Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne said:
“Start finding shops owned by homosexuals and force them to print things such as Bible versus that condemn homosexuality or slogans against gay marriage. Start using their own tactics against them.”
That’s dishonest, disgusting, and not very Christian. If we do that, Satan wins and Christ loses. Ignore them. If Christ is to survive this current age of persecution, it will be because Christians banded together. Want to know what you can do? Buy Chrosher… Christian Kosher!
Ba'al is winning because Christians, like it or not, are not convicted in their relationship with Christ. American Christians are not willing to face the persecution that Christ faced. Call me names. Fine me. Boycott me. Throw Molotov cocktails at me. This is the word of Christ and it is the pathway to salvation for all of mankind.
If someone drew a squiggly line in the sand would you know what to do? Christians need to band together.
We need Christian Pride parades.
Force muslim restaurants to serve PORK BBQ??? ROFLMACO
That pastor actually has a brilliant idea and if I was a florist, a baker or a photographer I'd follow his wise advice.
Where are the Westboro Baptist N azis when you need them??? I am surprised they have not targeted gay businesses yet. All they would have to do is sue a gay business and pick up the balance of their bank accounts and off to the next target
You know most states have laws against hate speech right.....
Every one in attendance gets to wash their hands like Pilate in the baptismal fount. Is that the new idea here?
That has been done and we never heard another word about it. Waiting for the Christian to sue them.
The latent Fascism of the LGBT crowd is coming to the fore.
There have already been a dozen or more incidents such as this.
There will be more, many more as each submission to their agenda
is seen as a victory. Very much like the Nazi SS they will soon use
open force. They will be met on the street.
HIDDEN CAMERA: Steven Crowder visits Muslim bakeries to buy a GAY WEDDING CAKE!
Steven Crowder took a trip up to Dearbornistan to find out if he could get a wedding cake for his same-sex wedding. Turns out he found some resistance:
It is an interesting idea, but I do wonder if it would work. Look at it this way. Suppose you had a group of bakers, florists and other professional's in some little town who did not believe in interracial marriage. So, they got together with a couple of local church's and formed a binding contract that they would only provide their services to weddings that are performed on behalf of members of those church's. As it happens those church's have all white memberships. A black activist gets wind of this and decides to arrange for an interracial couple to approach one of these businesses(let's say a bakery) and seek their services for their wedding. They are denied on the grounds that they are not members of any of the churches that the bakery is contractually bound to. I just can't help thinking that would not work out well for the bakery in question. If I am correct then what is the difference?
Why do stupid people keep thinking this will work? Remind me again where hate speech is protected by anti-discrimination laws?
It is sad, but if are country continues to be hostile towards Christians and persecutes them, it may become necessary for Christian business owners to adopt this strategy. We must not stay silent and allow the liberal fascists to destroy our religion and culture.
A Christian man called several bakeries in California to show how biased they are against those who stand for Traditional marriage. He asked for a cake that said " We stand for Traditional Marriage," Every one of those bakeries refused, and they all cussed him out. You can google it and see. Gays always said they wanted equal treatment, but that is not the case, they want those who don't agree with their lifestyle to be destroyed, they are very much like ISIS in this way, perhaps they should try a Muslim bakery, but we all know that isn't going to happen.
Won't work. They will refuse, so then what? You'll threaten to call the newspapers and TV stations? Or threaten a lawsuit?
Who do you think will report on this?
Who do you think will take up such a lawsuit?
What judge do you think will not dismiss this case?
The logic is there but in reality the door does no swing both ways.
HIDDEN CAM: #GayWeddingCakes at Muslim Bakeries?
Where is the outrage????
Every Church, Synagog, or Temple should find Halls or faculties that rent them self’s out for Gay events and rent them for bible studies or any other religious events. If they refuse then do unto them as they have done to others!
There are much simpler ways to not have to deal with customers you don't want to serve.
For a telephone call, crinkle some aluminium foil into a ball, and rub it against the speaker as you talk. Say there's something wrong with the connection, and hang up. Don't pick up the phone if they call back, and claim ignorance of any sort of subterfuge. Same goes for faxes, internet, etc. The state can't prosecute you for broken appliances, can they?
For in person meetings face to face, I would suggest feigning illness off the top of my head. That, or accept the order (don't accept payment, you'll see why) and just "forget" about it.
Just use your creativity, business owners.
If you don't agree with the gays...you are labeled "homophobic." That means you have an "irrational fear" of homosexuals. That is incorrect...I do not fear homosexuals...I am not afraid of any fruity-men or any fruity-women. Of course, here in Houston, I have seen some fruity-women who look like they could kick JJ Watt's @ss. So maybe, they're right...I am scared of big, ugly, muscular fruity-women...and I am usually fearless. (;
A wedding cake is a wedding cake no matter who is getting married, but a cake with an offensive message is not the same as a cake that says Happy Birthday or Congratulations. If they won't make cakes that are offensive to Christians or Jews or whites or blacks, they don't have to make cakes that are offensive to gays.
Great idea! Two can play their silly little game! Somehow decent people are very slow to concoct evil schemes and create trouble hoping to further divided people. Too bad we are stuck with a POTUS who is an expert at the game of 'divide and conquer'.
Reference — “…marrying a second time is committing adultery in the Eyes of God,”
Hey that is not correct. Read it again. And we noticed the version you used. You a falsified the word. That is a sin to change the word too.
Because using your own premise and reference. The person marrying a divorced “wife” would be the one committing adultery. And according to the government. That would be discrimination. To include any Lesbians would be committing adultery. — So being secular here. Then the key would be not to marry her and be in violation of another sin.
But of course why would that be a problem. The administration picks and chooses which laws to abide by…Right? So please explain how government hasn’t influenced religious practice.
And the next question is. What does that have to do with the actual owner or business. Because the sin would be participating in the act of adultery. Which they are not. — While actually participating in a LGBT wedding would be (as in providing service in the act would be).
But read the vers/version again. So try again.

ButterDog just claimed that evolution has been observed. In other words, he completely discredited himself. Even evolutions scientists are not stupid enough to make that claim.
 March 6, 2015 at 10:40am
So since evolution cannot be proven, you would agree that it should not be taught in schools, correct? After all, why should faith be taught in school? Evolution takes just as much, if not more, faith than Creationism to believe. So why the double standard?
Evolution has a ton of scientific evidence to support it and is the currently used model in biology. It's not a matter of faith, it's science and is expropriate for a science class.
Evolution is a theory. See simple. BTW when did you start to believe in evolution.
There are scientific REASONS to believe in evolution. There is no REASON to have faith, if there were faith would be unnecesary. And theories are as good as it gets in science.
Yes, it is a theory. And every fool who points that out has no idea what a theory is.
“A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.”
A theory in science is something that has a lot of scientific evidence to support it. It is not synonymous with “hypothesis”, which is the way you are trying to use it.
And I don't "believe" in evolution, I understand the science.
"So since evolution cannot be proven"
Yes it can, evolution is a fact. Why evolution happens is a theory. A theory in science is a well substantiated explanation based on all available evidence. Put simply, when science has a theory it is saying 'Upon examining all of the available evidence, here is the conclusion that it supports'.
dirtydog a scienctific method is OBSERVABLE. What part of that do you NOT understand?
Evolution has been observed, what part do YOU not understand? Did you bother to read what a theory is? It's something that is supported by OBSERVATION and EXPERIMENTATION.
ButterDog just claimed that evolution has been observed. In other words, he completely discredited himself. Even evolutions scientists are not stupid enough to make that claim.
Someone sure doesn’t know what they are talking about. Their name is IPFW_11.
Plenty more where that came from.
Just because you're unaware of what science has observed, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Evidence has NO conclusive evidence. NONE. I'll say that again. There is NO proof that evolution has ever occurred. Ever.
You seemingly get evolution mixed up with adaptation.
"But we have plenty of proof, we just can't show you because it takes billions of years". -- That my friend, is called faith.
"You seemingly get evolution mixed up with adaptation."
You seem to want to use your personal definition for things instead of the real ones.
Evolution as it is actually defined has been observed with our own eyes even.
"You seemingly get evolution mixed up with adaptation."
And you seemingly didn't ever take a class that actually taught you what evolution is, which would explain why you don't think there's any evidence for it.
 February 11, 2015 at 9:56am
So by your reasoning Punx, we shouldn’t trust Atheist’s. After all, they will clearly be trying to support their own bias.
 February 4, 2015 at 12:53pm
Why are we even involved with these people? Both sides are crazy. Lets just reinforce Israel and let the rest sort themselves out.
Because they are killing Americans and our allies....cant believe you get a thumbs up for such a short sided answer....this goes way back. Does the term "Barbary pirates" have any weight for your answer? I guess Thomas Jefferson didn't get it either.
Because they have spilled over into our world.
Wow, after all these years of sitting back watching islamists torture, murder, and rape "infidels", all it took was the burning of one muslim and now the crucifixion and chopping off of limbs is in order?
Goes to show you the value muslims place on our lives- as infidels. Dont forget that.
One side wants to burn and behead the other, while the other wants to crucify and mutilate the other?
Hang on a minute while I grab a lawn chair, a 6 pack of MGD and a big bowl of buttered popcorn.
The middle eastern countries should all be at war with Isis. Stop talking go do it
Credit should probably be given to General al Sisi for Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayib taking such a strong stance.
islam does not co-exist with any other form of governance..........it colonizes and as it's population grows it instills it's rule of law until the host country is totally subjugated...................while you are watching the middle east Europe is being taken over and the muslim brotherhood.....along with our government is trying to install sharia in the united states.................just say no..............REALLY LOUD
"Why are we even involved with these people? Both sides are crazy. Lets just reinforce Israel and let the rest sort themselves out."
Because when they do sort it out, we get 9/11.
Only God tortures by fire,” Al-Odah wrote.
Add a little napalm to the mixture and at least pre-heat the oven. Just a little preview of things to come for the peace lovers of the middle east.
how about a good wild hog calling party ...............stake them out and call in the wild hogs............and use silver bullet gun oil or jihawg ammo
Okay so stop talking and start doing to your Muslim brothers! Let the show begin so they all kill each other. SHOW ME!
@“It is rejected whether it falls on an individual or a group or a people. Only God tortures by fire,” Al-Odah wrote.
If your god tortures for sport maybe it's time to get a new one. Just sayin'.
"Reuters reported that the Islamic State posted its own fatwa on Twitter that said that burning an infidel to death is allowed under Islam."
Then, why aren't we using napalm?
a muslim is a muslim is a muslim...............
allllll day long................
alllll life long.................
their god IS NO gOD!!!!!!!
anyone with a brain knows this too!!!!!!!!!
There is only one true God, and His Son is Jesus Christ, anyone who believes allah is a god will burn in hell for worshiping a false god.
God says so, over and over in the Bible, satan knows this, satan is in control of all the muslims, satan loves them all!!!
obama loves them all...........they behead one of ours, obama's on golf course in 6 min.....flat....
"Why are we even involved with these people? Both sides are crazy. Lets just reinforce Israel and let the rest sort themselves out."
"Reinforcing" Israel is what created these monsters, and the State Department told America that it would. Only fools are shocked about the outcome.
You got it. Which side do I want to be on? The one that is going to behead and crucify people or the one that burns them alive. Let me think?????? O They are both islamist. Does that give anyone else pause???????????? Islam religion of peace and tranquility.
Well, for a starter, I certainly hope all Muslims do not feel the way radical Muslims feel because if they do, humanity is finished on this earth . Let us try to eliminate these Muslim radical terrorists scum who are doing Satan's work. After that we will be able to tell if the rest of them just want to live their religion in peace or not. Does that make sense ?
Because there are Christians and Kurds that need our help in that area.
Yes, reinforce Israel, but dump as much firepower to the Jordanians and let them go to town.
Read your scriptures.. they foretell all of what is going on.. and was foretold thousands of years ago!

It was 1997-2001 when I was there. Cell phones were not very popular then. Pagers were more widely used.
 January 31, 2015 at 2:32am
When I was in the Army, Sprint used to do everything it could to rip soldiers off at Fort Hood. They had this “barracks phone,” plan that was a worse plan than offered to civilians but it was the only thing barracks soldiers could get. On top of that, they were always screwing up bills and charging way more than was owed. Then, even after admitting their mistakes, they would still try to charge late fee’s when a soldier refused to pay the erroneous bill. I avoid Sprint at all cost because of how they treated us back then. Of every phone company I have ever used, Sprint was hands down the worst.
A lot of companies are having issues due to the way they treated customers in the past. Know that money is tight, and with automation and more pressure. More people are prioritizing, reducing from multiple plans to fewer plans, or doing with out, etc.
Was that in the 90s, before cells became popular?
I had the same problem with ATT when I was in Okinawa, 1995-1998. They were mailing out Phone cards by the truckload to anybody over there claiming 5 cent a minute calls to the states. I called my mother one day, and talked to her for 10 minutes, and got a bill for 200.00. It turned out that the 5 cent rate was only between 10pm and 11pm Greenwich mean time. When I called it was 2.00 a minute, plus 180.00 in fees to charge the call on a new acct. You can guess what I told them when I got that bill, Gunny Hartmann would gave been proud! I've done no business with them since and told everyone I've met not to either. Probably not that effective, but a moral victory anyway.
 January 27, 2015 at 8:03am
When will we get the apology for the global warming hysteria?
no they'll rename it again. Global cooling to OZ layer to Global Warming to Climate change to something else.
The “brilliant” scientists actually claimed last week that last year was one of the hottest on record with a .00000000000000001 F increase in temps – we’re all doomed!! Must. Sell. Your. Car. Get. A. Bicycle. (sarc-off!)
They cannot even predict The weather next week accurately.
And climate change lie has been used by prophets of Baal since Nimrod died back in Babylon.
Guess a 4,000 + year old lie hasn’t been repeated enough to fool everyone yet?
Power & $ in fear though.
I looked at the live footage of the 'disaster' and noticed / reconfirmed one thing.
New York is gross. I though snow was supposed to be white. So glad I don't live there.
Hint. You won't! lol
IPFW_11, because there is a difference between a "lie" and a "mistake". Global warming hysteria is a political lie to gain control and tax/fine funding. They won't apologize for a lie, only dig in deeper. Global warming is a big shady business, and its making the government billions in dirty money.
I wanted to get a degree in meteorology in the mid 80′s. I was two years into it when I realized the math was going to tear me up. At that time, you had to get a degree in science and it included all of the advanced college math. Today, is has been watered down a lot because them puters do all the math for you. So I got into the forecasting classes and we sat down with a wefax chart and used a slide rule to compute a prediction. Now models do all that for you. So when they tell you about catastrophic events, they are nothing but CYA. I usually trust Weather Underground the most but even they mess up. Last year, a friend called me from rural America asking if he should cancel church on Sunday. I looked and WU had a slight chance for snow for his city. So I told him it looked ok. He got slammed. But he did wake up with a foot of snow on Sunday morning and it was an easy decision. All those hours I accumulated finally did go for a degree but not meteorology. I did storm chasing back then. It was costly. Now I just park and watch the storms pass and report back. Much cheaper.
See! Climate change is accelerating at an unstoppable pace! By the time the storm got there the climate had changed! We’re all gonna die!!!!!!!
Here’s what I observed. I use Weather Underground and NOAA. NOAA has a better descriptive on predicting snow accumulation where WU tends to be less specific but a great website and radar.
Where I live the prediction was about 1 ½” inches by the time it all passes. Looking out my window…yep, about right.
The FOX NEWS map had my whole area of the state in the “up to 12” zone. If I believed FOX, I would have had the snow thrower idling and the generator ready to roll.
TV lives on hysteria, and people are suckers. The grocery store panics are the proof. How a family cannot go without eggs and bread for a few days is beyond me.
Live long enough and pay attention and you know, the weather predictions are never perfect. 6” can become 12 and 18” can become 8 within hours.
What this does show is government practicing martial law, telling citizens they are not allowed in public even if they are equipped with off-road vehicles and supplies. Practice for Tyranny in the big cities. But I get it I suppose...there are a lot of stupid people and I wish those people would stay off the roads…they are the kind that hit their brakes going uphill in a snowstorm…idiots abound..
Where I live they still call out for people with 4 wheel drive to help, not tell EVERYONE to stay off the road.
Of course the NYC pukes used it as an excuse to save a few bucks, and cancelled school earlier in the week because of this MASSIVE snow storm.
I was in NJ when the snow came up to my knees. Back then, we just called it as we saw it "Oh! It's snowing again." Today, the prog-educated-idiot elitists get hysterical over a weather report, and give it a name, as if by giving it a name, they could talk to it and calm it down...
Don't you global warming deniers get it? Man-made global warming melted the other 24 inches of snow before it made it to the ground! Mystery solved.
...and now a little something from Brenda Lee in her winter coat.
Rush Limbaugh Nailed this one right on the Head.
All a dumb down democrat needs to be manipulated by are the First overhyped Dishonest reports on anything. Then the democrat sheep, lemmings and parrots spread the lies like the Useful Idiots they are.
The narrative is soooo obvious with democrats and the news they watch. The buzz words were flying, "Historic, Massive, Never seen before" all because of global warming. Then in the summer they say "Hottest year on record 37% sure of that, Heat Dome, Drought, record breaking, 25 days above 80 degrees..." democrats are the "smartest stupid people" we'll ever know.
I happened to catch some dufus on BSNBC that was wailng and gnashing his teeth over how the “man-made warming” is warming up the oceans which in turn creates this kind of super snow storm. He’s an expert apparently. The only problem is…it didn’t create anything resembling what his doomsaying was predicting.
For some better perspective..none..I’ll repeat that…NONE of the predictions by the computer models used by the IPCC and it’s supporters have come true over the last 30 years. Each time one of their predicted threshholds is met and nothing resembling what they predicted happens…they just move the goal posts along 5 or 10 years. It’s a great racket if you can get into it.
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the irony’s so delightful,
That everywhere Algore goes,
It just snows and it snows and it snows…..
We got it wrong. Again, I apologize.
No sht sherlock. With all the tech, we cant get a 24 hour prediction, but as long as liberals get their pockets lined with green dollars, the 100 year prediction still stands.
Global warming/cooling/weirding- sounds like capitalism from the anti capitalists. Of course, not having the ability to produce a product, good, or service to make your own money, the anti capitalist must use lies and deception to convince you that you need to shell out more dough to save the planet. Uh huh.
When Hell freezes over.
When have you ever heard a liberal apologize.
They cry wolf so many times that when a true storm comes, we won't be prepared because no one will believe them. At the very least they should admit before hand that their forecasts could be wrong, but they go on and on, hyping the massive storms that are expected, and then nothing comes. Shame on them!
Or how about from the Boehner,McConnell and the spinless in DC.
I was thinking the exact same thing..... lol
It's almost not even worth pointing out since you're all too busy circle jerking yourselves over how this ONE METEOROLOGIST got ONE PREDICTION wrong... But I feel compelled to explain this... again...
Weather IS NOT the same as Climate.
Weather affects a single region for a relatively atomic period of time. "Today in NY vs Tomorrow in LA, etc".
Climate looks at a much broader spectrum of localities and across many time periods.
It's the difference between guessing the winner of Super Bowl vs guessing at what second of the game a single wide receiver is going to catch a pass. There are so many tiny factors that affect that outcome, but trends are far easier to spot.
Hopefully some of you will read this and realize how inane you sound holding the Global Climate consensus to account for this article, but I doubt it. The back patting is deafening.
You did not Blow it.
Marshall Law was implemented with 100% Cooperation from the East Coast brainless.
You even had Business afraid to open in fear of overreaching Govt retaliation.
This was a huge Communist Success. A feather in Debasio's Cap.

You didn’t need to write all this to convince us you aren’t fit to be a father. You could have saved a lot of time by just saying “I’m a liberal.”
I'm prochoice and I've got 2 great kids who say I'm pretty good father (at least they said so on my birthday card).
Crabmaster, I hope you learned your lesson on trying to convey your point in an intelligent, thoughtful matter. Deviate at all from their preconceived script and you're labeled a liberal that need not be listened to.
The people you're trying to convince are braindead, is what I'm saying. Good news is that you're right, they're mostly super old people - so we won't have to worry about them for too long.
Right. And ignore the fact that you dont want anything to do with or to help the kids out after theyre born. But you really care about them being born.
"And ignore the fact that you dont want anything to do with or to help the kids out after theyre born"
That's the biggest lie liberals like to spew. There is zero evidence of that and Conservatives are amongst the most generous people in this country. Stop spreading lies to justify your horrific position.

“.. it follows an extremist version of Islam…”
Is that true? Or does ISIS simply follow Islam to its logical conclusion?
The kid will be safe as long as he cooperates...right about now they are trying to get him to teach them to fly.
I BET A WHOLE BUNCH OF MONEY.
This guy was shot down with an AMERICA manpad. Hence why he "wasn't shot down at all".
This is one of the benghazi missiles that ended up in the hands of the wrong people.

Being in Korea and seeing things from an outside perspective, it appears my country is becoming France.
Ipfw I live north of ft wayne can't live in that city ha
Yes. The same entity that turned France into a liberal voting train wreck. Also turned England Australia. And now, America. The destabilization should be considered as sedition by the new republican congress. But they are too stupid to understand. If republicans fail to put George Soros on trial. And expose those helping him to create this sedition. Then this will be the last republican congress, ever. Immigration and billionaire funded political non profit agitators will take over. D. Morris, former Clinton employee, has warned Americans of obamas plan. Obama is the puppet of George Soros. Put Soros on trial! Expose the sedition. It is the ONLY way to stop this.
IPFW_11 - Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, hope your tour is about over. I remember that tour over 40 years ago, it was a long 13 months 7 on the DMZ- RC10 & Camp Graves then back south of the Freedom Bridge to Camp McKenize

If it’s like when I was still in, it won’t matter anyway. Every time we got a pay raise of any type, AAFES simply raised all of their prices. So every raise we got in my eight years was nothing but a cost of living raise really.
Same in my twenty years plus. The commissaries did the same thing. Used to remind me of something. I owe my soul to the company store.
Yep. Gas is cheaper off post and you don;t have to show your ID.

I would like to see a study regarding the unrealistic expectations of women today paired with the deck being stacked against men in court when it comes to divorce, children, etc and how that is affecting men when it comes to marriage. I suspect that is having a lot bigger impact on marriage than porn is.
To go a step further. Women are now "empowered" with their bodies and they can do as they choose. Sexual freedom is one of those choices. Why would a man get married in today's culture? TV teaches us that a married man is a buffoon, universities teach us that men are sexual predators, the news teaches us that men have special privileges...speak to someone in a negative tone long enough and that person will not want to have anything to do with you.
I am married and so is my friend that I spoke with yesterday on this very topic. He says that young men do not date any more, they hang out in groups with other females. He states that the young men, all professionals mind you, do not want the hassle that comes with dating a girl. They say most are spoiled and takers, not wanting to give at all. They do not need to be placed on a pedestal, they are already there before you even come along.

I won’t be coming back for a few years so I have not looked into it much yet. I am currently licensed in Indiana though that can be transferred fairly easily to most states. It’s something my wife and I will talk about more the closer we get to returning.

I currently teach in South Korea but it is going to be comical being in the public school system when I come back to the States. Liberals will just love me. History teacher, conservative, Christian, and a veteran.
If I may ask what area of the States are you going to be teaching?

Thanks for your service, IPFW.. Come on back to Indiana soon. We need some more good people around here. You going back to Fort Wayne? I love listening to WOWO on a daily basis. I'm thinking of moving to Fort Wayne when I get my degree.
Truthfully they will probably never hire you. They are great at keeping their Leftists cabal free of opposing ideas. Good Luck on the job hunt. Reemeber they are Communists at heart.
Basically this map is the total opposite of the illegal alien map of them flooding in the US. Thirty years ago they were mostly in the Southwest, but now they're all throughout the US.
Please, please come back to the states, IPFW... We need you!!! :)
Better learn Common Core first!
Good luck buddy they will be gunning for you watch your back. Teachers can be like little Hitlers or should I say Stalins.

If kids in the U.S. think their lives are too tough, send them over here to S. Korea for a bit. Then they will understand what a “tough life” means. The kids I teach go to school six days a week, all day. The older kids do not get out of school until 9:30pm (some later if going to an illegal school) Then they go home to study and do homework until bedtime around 12am. They wake up and do it all again the next day. This is their childhood but you know what? There aren’t mass killings here by students. There aren’t gangs of students roaming the streets. There are rarely fights in school. Students are also much more respectful to teachers here. (If the teacher has a clue that is) I have not seen a single teenage pregnancy nor heard of one in my time here. I am sure it happens but is very rare. The extent of misbehavior in class is usually a student falling asleep, which is understandable when you realize it is because they were up all night studying, not partying and playing video games.
When I come back to the States to teach it is going to be very difficult to accept the excuses parents make for their children’s poor behavior.
What a low brow thing to say A/O. You must be a very smart person…in an incredibly stupid way.
From what I know, Koreans are very strict. They punish their kids in ways we can’t even treat prisoners. The kids beg for acceptance from their parents when they go into pedestrian professional fields like cooking. Much like Indians and I’m sure other cultures.
I agree we are screwing our kids up, but I think we can find a middle-ground between raising prima donnas and subjects of cruelty.
What you describe is why I left the formal teaching field here. After 20 years in Asia, 3 years here ... I started a different career.
I think there is something to kids being babied, and maybe having unrealistic expectations of a trouble free life - as well as a lack of Christian values which would help them cope with difficulties. I'm really not ready to ship my kid off to school until 9:30pm and have them focus on academics to the exclusion of all else in life as the solution - maybe they won't get in much trouble, but there needs to be some balance. I feel my kids are in the hands of the State too much as it is in the name of education. Really wanting to figure out a way to home school at this point.
