If women are so well suited for military service, on the front lines, then why don’t they show us? Let’s have an all-female company or platoon and send them in.
If they fight and win as well as their male counterparts, then great! But, I suspect that will not be the case. Not because they are less patriotic or less important or less of a human, but just because they are less aggressive and less physically powerful than your average male military person.
Ignoring the facts of the real, physical world because somebody may get their feelings hurts is the height of stupidity. It is stupid and it is dangerous – to them, their fellow soldiers and our country.
There are places in our military where women may be better than men, but the front line isn’t it.
“If you want to make a combat unit ineffective, add some women to it,” retired Gen. Robert Barrow, the former commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, had said at a 1991 hearing before Congress.

Why doesn’t God just drop in for a chat? That would settle everything, and possibly bring the people of the world together. Seems like a small thing to pop in and set us all straight.
And why is Jesus being depicted as a white guy? Did they read the Bible before they cast this character?
Did you read your Bible before that odd post? The answers are in there.
And for those who seem so keenly aware of race in casting, I thought Hispanics weren't white anymore. Can someone please explain that to me. Are they only white when you don't like them?
That happened 2000 years ago and your cousins rejected Him then. What makes you think people would accept Him now?
Have you seen Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel prime minister? He is certainly Jewish and certainly a WHITE DUDE... so what is your point???
God "pop's in" all the time. The problem with humanity is they have stopped looking for the signs or have so much noise in their head they cannot hear him. He speaks in a whisper, how often will anyone be quiet enough to listen?
Benjamin Netanyahu's father was Polish. Perhaps that is why he looks white?
What would be the point of experiencing three-dimentional life?
The ending of a story is written in the last pages of a book for a reason.
~>Ahhh, wondery and discovery
I thought the actor looked whiter than one would if one were born in that region of the world, too. Just an observation. You see different depictions of Christ depending on where you go. I've seen black, tan and white statues. I think it's a desire to identify. I find it ok personally.
Jody? Jesus is cast with artistic license...it's their movie they have the freedom to produce it through their prism and if people like it they will watch it. the movie seems to have drawn a huge audience :) LOL
jhubbard..God did drop in for a chat. They crucified Him.
and jesus was remade in chicago but was aborted eary in the first trimester.along with the person with the knowlege to cure cancer and the one who would cure aids.ext......
AIDS and HIV have been curable since 1982.
The 4 patents were purchased from Dr. Kalli by the drug companies.
This life is not for us all to be controlled and spared evil, adversity, nor death. That was Satan's plan, that's why he was cast out of the councils of Heaven with 1/3 of ALL the hosts of Heaven who backed him. Why does harm befall the innocent and rightous? Were any of God's people (Christ Himself) spared? They were not, this mortal life is for all of us to figure out how to get along, have compassion despite your own sufferings, and give the gift of love to those who need it along the way suffering at different times, of varying degrees.
And finally, in order for a rightous judgement upon those who acted within their own freedom to harm others. If God stopped every evil, whom would be judged by their own works? Matthew 16:27 for all whom think that by grace alone you're saved, just one of many examples of scripture (save your breath please). If God intervened (withoout the faith & prayers of the rightous) wouldn't then He in effect be fulfilling Satan's plan and make himself a liar in which case God would cease to be God because God is no liar, Christ is truth and light.
God did “drop in for a chat” 2,000 years ago and we crucified him. Like Jesus said, however, him coming to earth would not bring us together it would tear us apart (Matthew 10:34). Can you imagine the son of a Jewish carpenter in the 1st Century having the “hubris” to say his life would tear the world apart? I guess it wasn’t really hubris, though, since for 2,000 years his life has actually torn the world apart. That was just one of the many prophecies Jesus told which came true. The world’s problem isn’t God, it’s that the world has rejected God.
JHubbard: Please be advised, that God speaks to me, as well as each and everyone of us on this Great Creation we call earth. the messages are what is given to each person and what that person derives from it and their mindset all play a role in their actions. Miricles happen each and every day, as attested by them. You see miricles on video nowadays, and it is very heartening, so open your eyes and your heart to what is plain to see and feel by many millions. It is better to hate the sin and not the sinner, as we ALL are. God Bless you.

Cherie MAnning has nothing to do with this company since 2009 (as her LinkedIn page states). The last CEO listed on their business page with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Business & Lien website is Tom Ahonen. But, according to his LinkedIn page, he left the company in December 2010 – which is the last year that the company filed a business renewal with the state of Minnesota. (See http://mblsportal.sos.state.mn.us/Business/SearchDetails?filingGuid=060b6bf2-aad4-e011-a886-001ec94ffe7f for their business filing info).
Their last filing with the Sec of State seems to have been a “Administrative Dissolution – Business Corporation (Domestic)” on 08-1-2012. I don’t know if that means that they closed the company or just reorganized it.
In any case it looks like they did not renew their business license for 2011 or 2012 (according to the renewal history tab on the above referenced page).

Looking further into the company that sells targets of children and pregnant women the Department of Homeland Security to “..desensitize themselves to the idea of shooting a (armed) child, pregnant woman, or young mother, for just a couple of bucks”, it looks like Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. has not even renewed its license to do business in Minnesota since 02-19-2010.
They certainly are not reported to have renewed by their renewal date of 12/31/2011 as posted on the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Business & Lien website.
Yes…they shoot first and figure out their story later. Remember their reaction to a truck that they THOUGHT looked like the truck Chris Dorner was supposed to be in? They shot it 39 times, wounding one of the 2 women inside who were just doing their jobs delivering newspapers.
Can’t you just place a screen over the device on the outside of your house and hang a picture (with a screen backing) inside your house and essentially put the thing in a Faraday cage?
This would block the majority of signals from it (though not all of the signals because your Faraday “cage” has a wall separating one of it’s walls – the wire screen behind your picture – from the other walls covering the device outside your home).
This would not stop the device from working – only from sending out any harmful EMF that may hurt those with pacemakers and such.
Since these meters transmit their data to the power companies over what appears to be frequencies similar to cell phone frequencies a Faraday Cage will block those signals. It does not require the cage to touch the meter in any way at all, so there should be no questions of tampering with the meter. It is impossible to tamper with the meter if one doesn’t touch it or transmit any data to it.
To see how a faraday cage works, place a battery powered FM radio in a bird cage and close the door.
It makes no sense to me why the power companies don’t simply place these devices on the telephone poles at the street, or buried at the road in the case of underground wiring, (keeping the farther from the homes of people and making tampering with them more difficult). That would seem to be a simple solution to the problem.

Very disappointing crop this year (except for the Farmer ad and one or two others). It seems that the ad agencies are just trying too hard.
It’s like watching a desperate guy try and get a date. It makes you sad and kinda queasy.
I agree, maybe I have become a tough crowd to please because of previous adds but I don't think so. I remember one budweiser where the perppy gut has his dog go fetch a beer out of the cooler. The hick has his mutt get him a beer by clamping on to the preppy's balls causing him to toss the beer in to the hick's hand. Now that's funny.

What about the “face” seen from second 29 – 31? Pretty cool…

How can it be “racist” to show an image of a brave, but not racist to name your team the Braves?

2010 firearm deaths = 8,775 DUI deaths = 10,228 Ban alcohol and I’ll ban guns.

Liberals cannot even wait for the dead children to be buried to begin their assault on guns and the 2nd Amendment. Although I think this is disrespectful, I do think we should have a conversation about gun control. I just think the conversation should be about facts and not clouded with emotional, knee-jerk reactions (which can admittedly be difficult in the midst of such unimaginable pain and grief).
I am all for saving lives, but let’s start with the things that take the most lives first. Consider the factual numbers from 2009.
