    “They also said the center had no metal detectors.” A rather key point that should have course been part of the basis of the real story. The real story is why and individual who is undergoing mental health services should be able to obtain or own a gun. And why the hospital would have a no gun policy but not metal detectors to assure that only police have them. Anyone who tries to make the “good thing he had a gun argument, so let’s arm all the staff is either a salesman for a gun manufacturer or in need of the doctors professional services.

    He is a former joke of a Senator. Who would want a picture with him anyway.

    mike and the folks here are so far out of the league with respect to foreign affairs and foreign policy it is laughable. Unfortunately for this group, Ted Cruz, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, the world is a tad more complex then Rush’s talking points would have you believe. It is sad to see individuals be impressed by cheap Monday morning critics who waste time and energy backing into their ideological and belief driven conclusions. Do your own thinking and here’s a tip… use your brain.

    Actually any informed and legitimate economist would tell you that a social good like health care would be best delivered via a national health insurance with the option to purchase private coverage for platinum level care. A model like that of Switzerland or Germany would be the best possible approach. Or we could merely expand Medicare which is the most effective and efficient health care insurance system in the US. And of course a non-profit government run one at that.

    No that’s not how it works as the courts often make decisions based on the laws intent, not on the language, particularly language that relates to implementation. And if you took the time to do some research rather than being lazy and letting Rush, GB and Fox present you with the fascist conservative talking points you would realize that during the implementation the the term used was federally facilitated state exchanges. That is the federal government provided the exchanges for states that decided not to take on the project.

    That’s one way of looking at it I guess. The other is her “research” was formulated and directed by her father. Which while perhaps a reasonable amount of parental help for a school science project is not exactly something she should call her own.

    Based on the information presented in the post, if accurate which is always a big if here, the girl’s research was at best devised and probably directed by her father given his involvement in the prior work. Either way it is certainly not something she came up with on her own and not her work.

    “Beck said that if Hamas is able to take down a passenger jet, the media and the Obama administration would likely blame Israel.” The FAA followed the same rules and guidelines it has followed countless times so either GB is incapable of reading or he is intent on manufacturing another controversy. As far as the above statement…. it is beyond ignorant and irresponsible. This is not how a citizen of our country should speak.

    How wonderful it would be for “news” outlets to drop the ideological bias crap, the countless efforts to manufacture controversy and just report the news.

    First she said radical Islam was evil which actually was one of the few things she has said that people have agreed with. She has said countless other things that are an indication of either complete ignorance or fanatical ideology. If she ran and was nominated it would be a slam dunk for the democrats. Very few rational thinking individuals would vote for her.

    Admitting to a crime not committed here and one they have not been arrested or prosecuted for means relatively nothing unfortunately. But clearly they should be returned to their country of origin, not released relatives. Having said that it is interesting to see the level of integrity and ethics of the staff here given… “Their confessions were documented on an internal Department of Homeland Security “intake list” leaked to TheBlaze.”

    Ah liz it clearly says the erosion is the tool and the only new piece of information is that different segments of the rock are more or less resistant to the erosion caused by water and wind.

    Can somebody explain to me how what he said was even remotely controversial or incorrect. He was asked a question about the player and gave his honest answer. A good part of which relative to what he views the situation and what he would have done. Good for him that his honesty trumps caring what the media thinks.

    Tom Petty is being a little harsh here. No doubt the 25% of christians who attend church regularly get it right a 1-2 hours a week.

    @RadicalforCapitalism Great point as it is rather sad to see a parent who curses freely and at their kids discipline their kids for cursing. As though being ignorant and uncouth is a right of being and adult. And really nothing surprising when you see the kids who are hit often by their parents being the kids who are in constant trouble for hitting other kids.

    “It said there was insufficient evidence to prove he hit his son with a belt.” Gad to see it turned on this point. Cause while spanking with an opened hand within limits is reasonable and useful there is no situation where a belt is acceptable. If a parent hits a child with a belt they should be charged with a crime and the child should be removed from the house and placed with family until the parent gets counseling. My mother hit my brothers and me with a wooden paddle once. When she was done we took the paddle outside and burned it. She got the message about acceptable limits.

    What is this silly notion of sterilized or surgical war, promoted by the military industrial complex to minimize the objection to war, that commands everyone’s attention. The Germans bombed London. The US bombed Japanese cities and Hanoi. If you decide to go to war then you should intend to win it by placing as much pain and suffering on your enemy until they surrender or you overrun them. Perhaps if people saw the horrors of war directly like what occurred with Vietnam reporting, they might decide that decide it the worst act imaginable. So either go full bore at Hamas and drive them to surrender or overrun them or stop. Cause the notion that war is a tool or form of diplomacy is nothing more than a rationalization to cover up the money being made by military contractors.

    Ah another made up crisis that the do nothing Loud Mouths in the House will criticize the PRESIDENT for instead of actually doing their job. For example, how’s about they take up some legislation on immigration rather than just seek photo ops.
