I wonder how many Americans in general have used the word ******, honky, cracker, slope, etc?? I suspect many or most of us have at some point in our lives. Using a slur to hurt someone’s feeling or insult their race doesn’t make you a racist. It may make you stupid but not a racist. Of course you could be a racist and that is okay too! Its not illegal to be a racist. We need to get over ourselves and just accept that our feelings are going to get hurt sometimes in life and being offended is not in the Bill of Rights. Sorry!
You do not have a right to not be offended. I wonder how many times Maher has used the N word in the past?
using those words also makes people very unoriginal. I prefer the more creative, rarely used slurs- like BagelDog, BeaverBeater, Cocoa Puff, CarpetPilot, GrapeStomper, MoonCricket, RiceBurner, SheepShagger, etc.
Life is too short to use the same insults over and over.
Expand your horizons people!
The Klan, Skin Heads and Naszi's all use that word, along with many others; are you saying that these well known HATE GROUPS ARE NOT RACIST? As an African American, let me tell you, that MOST people, when these types of situations, almost always FORGET THE HISTORY SURROUNDING RACISM, and THE USAGE OF THAT PARTARTICULAR WORD. What must be understood is that RACISM was not only inter-woven into America's social life, IT WAS A MATTER OF LAW....IT WAS CEMENTED IN MANY PEOPLE'S MINDS, ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH, it would be nearly impossible for a white, black, asian, or hispanic person to not have at least a small measure of racism in them...it was BRAIN-WASHING.
Just think guys, HUNDREDS OF YEARS OF RACISM; passed down from generation to generation; hundreds of years of" "You can't eat here", "You can't eat there", or "You can't be seen with him", or "You can't be seen with her"; hundreds of years of "You can't pee in this toilet, you have to pee in that toilet. Living in this manner from generation to generation is going to have an effect, no matter whether it is a lot, or very little. Whenever I, as a black man, hear this word, it was like stepping into a TIME MACHINE, and going back to the SLAVE DAYS, that word is very very very strong. If you were to call me a jungle bunny, it may register a 4 or 5 on a PISSED OFF SCALE; if you called me a SPOOK, it may register a 4 or 5, call me a coon possibly a 6...if you call me a N_ _ _ _ _, that will register
IVANCHECK... has it occured to you that the only reason that word would be maliciously directed at you is to predictably provoke a reaction?
If it were casually dismissed with an eyeroll, its effectiveness would be quickly mitigated.
The black community doesn't want the hostile implications of that word neutralized, however, anymore than the racists do.
Social outrage is the fuel of Jackson and Sharpton's power, just as it fuels the appeal of hate groups for haters.
IVAN: if you call me a name, any name, it registers at 0 (that's a zero). I don't set my self value based on the actions of others. Why do you possibly care what some one else calls you? And why would you let their actions have any effect on you?
If a person is from South Africa, and happens to be caucasian, are they African-American too? Just asking. My father and all before were from Scotland, but I'm an American, and he thought of himself that way too. Perhaps all these special words are at the root of the problem.
@IVANCHECK Trust me people remember the history because we're constantly reminded of it i.e. now. How long must this guilt go on, enough already?! We will never be able to move forward as a society if so much emphasis is placed on a word and the history behind it shoved down our throats. If that word is so offensive to you, explain then why it's ok for the black community to use it? Why is there even an exception? If it's so offensive then no one should use it. If every other word in a rap song is the N word (and let's be honest, while an exaggeration, it's not that far off) how are non-blacks supposed to react to that word? Do you not see how confusing this nonchalant use is to people who are not black? Doesn't it lose it's original offensive meaning since the people who are "supposed" to be offended by it are the ones who use it most and actually towards each other?? Do you really not see how backwards this is? Besides, almost every country at some point in its history has had slaves, some of the time the slaves were even of the same color and nationality as the people they were serving (russia had russian slaves, egypt had jews..and so on) but you don't see an entire country stop to address someone's use of, god forbid, a word that evokes the time in history when there were slaves and then get fired for it!

Here is what I know about Glenn Beck if he got this story wrong he will admit it. However, I trust that Beck would not risk his honor on big foot. That tells me that he got information from trusted sources and that information will either be proven right or wrong. If wrong I expect him to be honest about that and make changes to see that it doesn’t happen again. With all that said I trust Glenn Beck and the Blaze far more than this government so unless I see clear proof I will support Beck and the Blaze.

Might be wise for ALL media outlets to slow down and re-evaluate sources. I don’t think any of the wrong media reports were intended by the media outlets to mislead but maybe they were feed false or not totally accurate information intending on making them look bad by the person feeding them the information. Of course, it could just be human begins being eager to find the devil and making mistakes in that process.
ENCINOM Who needs a lie to "attack" the president when there is more than enough truth to do that job!?
Well, if that's the case, then "certain news outlets" should be responsible and credible and check their sources before printing a story. Totally the Blaze's fault.
Personally, I'd find it hilarious if an unconfirmed source leaked false info to see if the Blaze would make fools of themselves. And they sure did. Whatever happened to "Do your own homework?"

Well lets start with taxes! Because most of these illegal aliens won’t earn high incomed salaries they won’t pay federal income taxes. Most of them will also qualify for social service programs for health care, housing, and food but NOT paying any fedarl taxes to cover what they are consuming. They will be burden on our society in many cases not a benefit.
Second, voting! Because most of them will not be taxes and will be receiving welfare of some kind will be MORE inclinded to vote for the democrat party. The poor already vote for democrats at much higher rates than republicans and this would only make that worse.
Third, crime! Where there is low income / poverty there is always high crime. They will be low income / poor in many cases so there will be another government housing community filled with crime, unemployment, and liberals.
This has been unbalanced for some time.....
Doctor goes to school for 8 yrs to get degree and pays his dues.....
Illegal alien makes trip to emergency room, never pays bill, does not care about credit...
Mom has babies in hospital, once mom has litter she is disposed and the new mom enters....
Babies are cute and everyone loves them, yet illegal has serious learning block, cannot be a doctor.....
Doctor is accused of being evil rich man by liberals, when he is only working his butt off because he has no competition....
Many more millions go to school to become lawyer, no room for lawyers so lawyers resort to drug dealing so they can get themselves out of trouble....
Obama enters the scene, wants votes. screws us all in the process, Pandora's box has opened....

I hope Warren influence gets help to those who struggle with mental illness. However, Rick Warraen did take the opportunity of his sons death to make a polictial point on gun control. Furthermore, he also stated that he forgave the man who sold his son the gun online without a background check! No Rick the man who sold your son the gun did not do anything wrong as it is not illegal to sell guns privately without a background check. So, there is nothing to forgive. Your son was ill and that illness alone took his life.
Rick Warren is no Christian ! But I'll leave it to God to Judge him !
@SOCIALISTSLAYER Please don't speak out of ignorance.
Socialistslayer, I can tell you've left God to judge him. You've made that abundantly clear. /sarcasm.

The pictures are hard to stomach but people need to understand reality. We get lost in movies and games consumed with blood and death but sheild our eyes from real violence. If our children should be exposed to blood and death this is it. They should see the real world and understand that in the real world when you blow something up or shoot a gun at someone real pain and death happen. Don’t doctor the photos ….
This is the real world as it is. Obummer and his liberal media need to quit changing it to fit the agenda.

I’m sure I’ll be in the minority here but I feel like this guy wanted a fight and simply got one. If the police come up to you while you are walking down the road with a guy on your back because they were called by another citizen why not just simply answer their questions? That is what a reasonable person would do. Also, if the police take your gun WHILE THEY ARE QUESTIONING YOU don’t attempt to grab the gun back! Answer the questions and then be on your way. But no this guy had to be a jerk and present himself as a threat so he was arrested. Worse he put is own son in harms way because he wanted to argue with the police while holding gun!
If the police took his gun or arrested him without cause after he truthfully answered their questions then he could hire an attorney and sue the department but I doubt they would have done either. He wanted a confrontation so he could get headlines. Everybody wants a stage these days and he got his. He is a bum and should NOT be a model for 2nd amendment supporters to follow. This is how guns get taken away should the matter have gotten out of control and police officers died.

This guy is crazy like many of you here! They didn’t set him up nor did the government bomb Boston. This guy was already on government radar because of prior letters and actually signed his name to the ricin letters in a sense. Whether he is an actual Christian or not is between him and God but he is for sure crazy and should be off the streets.
April 17, 2013 at 8:31am
The bomber is NOT going to stick around and get blown up! Unless he or she is a suicide bomber which this white guy is clearly not! Relax left wing media you haven’t proved that a white man from the south with Christian committed this act of terror.
I think He-She is carrying a piece.

If its to be a historical movie then show historical facts whether they are good or bad. Otherwise just make a movie based on what you think should have happened and then you can go on rewriting history to fit your liberal agenda. By the way, many of HOLLYWOODS movies are filled with violence including rape, torture, and murder but that is ok as long as the actors in the movies are making their millions and they can then write it off as JUST A MOVIE. But when a movie about a historical figure presents historical facts and those facts are disturbing then all of a sudden there is a problem. Why we continue to give these idiots our money is beyond me.
Couldn't have said it better myself--a great compliment to you. So according to Clennon, all we needed was for Jessica Chastian's character to say "Hey, this is an appalling crime.....immoral and criminal. Now back to getting results from these flithy, child murdering rag heads" and SONY would have been okay.

The Bible is a historical book that contains both the actions of men and the word of God. Remember that Paul in the NT stated that while all things are permissible (possible) not all of them are profitable (produce good) Man has always been left to decide for himself the course of his own life and sometimes that produces good and other times it produces bad (slavery) but God does NOT force himself or his will on any one person or mankind in general. Much of what is in the bible was related to the customs of the time not always what God ordained. You see unlike what MEN would do if we authored the bible God left the bad deeds of man in for all to see so that everyone would know that we all need a savior (Jesus).
They can ban the bible or remove God from the public square all they want but it won’t change who God is and what God is doing. Man doesn’t have that kind of control or power. Jesus said that even the rocks would cry out if man didn’t.

The Constitution assures Americans of the right own gus and it doesn’t exclude certain types of guns. Whether you agree with that or not it is still fact. So unless you believe you can chage the Constitution it might be wise to come up with a plan that doesn’t keep people from buying any kind of gun they desire but also provides some oversight for those purchasing the types of guns reasonable Americans could say are more dangerous than others. Such as a weapon like the AR-15.
I would suggest asking anyone who desire to purchase that kind of weapon to simply apply for permit which would register the gun at the STATE level, be certified to use, clean, and store the weapon, and pass background check.
Easy! No rights violated.
January 10, 2013 at 7:44am
The REASONABLE compromise here is to have CERTAIN guns like the AR-15 type permitted. If you owen those types of guns you must have a permit that renewns yearly and requires a background check plus you must be certified to operate it. Maybe like going to local gun range showing that you can fire, clean and store the weapon properly. Simple and most people would agree that you have viloated our constitution or required the gun owner too much trouble to purchase the gun.

Its how great empires and nations fail. From within! Everybody believes their was is right but saddly they believe it so much that little gets done except a divided nation with no real media between to help sort through the details. Our country was we once knew or what it once was no loger lives. Nothing will change because its US, the people who are the true problem. We send leaders to Washington. We vote or don’t vote. Most of us has an agenda of some kind that we don’t mind bending the Constitution over to get what we desire or need. Its a lost cause at this point better to gather what you can into the store houses because winter is coming.

Raises taxes 1 dollar for every dollar cut in spending on every working citizen then I would agree with tax hikes. Or, here is an idea simply put flat tax that everyone pays and remove everything else but charities! I’m okay with raising the age on social securty and means testing every other social program out there. To simply raise taxes on the rich is stupid and just not FAIR as our wonderful president likes to put it.
There is no solution from this point foreword. You simply can not stop the Marxist-Leninist spending freight train. The Marxist-Leninists believe in Stoick Philosophia doctrine and the dialectic, therefore they do not believe in our Father. They actually think since the US dollar is the global currency, all they need do is print more of it. That is exactly what the global "World" banks have been doing. Its the same course of action the Germans took in the early 1900's which resulted in hyper-inflation.
Its impossible to re-inflate bubbles but some how the Marxist leaders and the Global banks think you can by simply printing money. What is done is done, there will never be a recovery back to 2006-07 financial levels, its simply impossible to ever attain as those levels were false (bubbles). Going foreword thing along the lines of an 650-750 S&P and a 5000-7000 DOW. This is where your new reality actually lies.
Older workers expect to be laid off in droves and replaced by younger, inexperienced workers, as part of the Marxist-Leninist improvement plan.
Older citizens, expect more end of life counseling and less medical attention. The same can be said for the mentally ill and people with diseases who will be offered comfort drugs only.
