    liz seriously like how irresponsible can you be. Do some real work here and find out if it was a choke hold or not. Merely placing ones arm around someones neck area does not in and of itself constitute choking them.

    But then again there are those who don’t think individuals or companies should market off of the 9/1d tragedy. You know like the 9/12 promotion of the “9/12 project.”

    1. vigorously active and aggressive, especially in support of a cause: militant reformers.
    2.engaged in warfare; fighting. noun
    3.a militant person.
    4.a person engaged in warfare or combat.

    Like it or not 3 of the above definitions for militant apply to the Israeli military. And once the fighting starts BOTH sides are defending themselves and attacking. What is so surprising about an army that uses gorilla warfare tactics when they have an inferior force both in terms of numbers and weaponry. Let’s remember that the British correctly identified the Colonial army has using gorilla tactics. Cheering for Israel winning against a band of militants is like those who cheered when the US wiped up Iraq. You really think either is a fair fight.

    fred how’s about you do something useful and present peer reviewed studies on both side of the climate question rather than printing such garbage that merely stirs up the same ignorant statements regarding those who have done zero research on the subject.

    As someone has said the reality and intellectually challenged far right members of the House are the gift that keeps on giving. There appears to be no level of shame and ignorance they won’t go. They are an embarrassment to themselves and their equally anti-America supporters.

    Well said and absolutely correct. Alcohol, Caffine, nicotine are drugs that are equal if not more devastating tot he health and well being of the user and the public. Bill O’Reily always seems to make nonsensical statements like pot being a gateway drug that highlights his lack of knowledge and education.

    Way to go Ashley McGuire you have successfully joined the ranks of other individuals like Ann Coulter, Sharon Angle and Sarah Palin who have to make reckless outrageous statements to get attention. However, given you work for a Catholic organization who should be focused on the centuries or more of priest child abuse, I would keep a low profile. Oh and join a religion that does not protect sex offenders and buy off victims.

    “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.

    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.

  • [5] July 23, 2014 at 6:00pm

    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.”
