    Is this hundreds like in real numbers or in the same type of numbers used to estimate GB’s rally’s?

    There is no doubt that many of these organizations exaggerated the amount of public information and education they were doing and the downplayed the amount of political advocacy they were doing. They inappropriately and perhaps fraudulently sought a non-profit status so their cowardly donors could hide in the shadows. When you done with the Salem witch hunt here perhaps you should start asking the right questions.

    Exactly and that is on gross income, not net. He does pay taxes and probably has less offshore accounts than Romney. Let’s be clear any individual who holds offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes should be immediately stripped of their citizenship and put in jail. There is no excuse for an individual who can afford to pay their taxes, to pay them.

    They donated $59,251 or 12+% of their gross income to charities….. how did you come out on that metric?

    billy really doesn’t get up very early, as that is what would be needed to throw such BS past an individual of average intelligence. First and foremost he references an outside source to get him off the hook regarding the accuracy. Second, the list provided only covers $22,000 of the $59,251 identified, so without a list covering the other $37,251 no statement can be made about what he did and did not give to churches. Third, St. Leo’s Home for Veterans sounds like it is run by a church organization. Were all of those donations counted towards his total donations to church organizations. While I’m sure billy donates at least 10% of his gross earnings to his church, it is probably a tad short of $59,251. And let’s see Rush’s and other similar info for the entire blaze staff. Then and only then would you have any standing to critique someone else’s giving levels.

    So much for video cameras and home surveillance services.

    And now for some breaking news.

  • April 16, 2014 at 11:12am

    This kind of story highlights the ignorance between political systems, economic systems, culture and role of religions that Rush and GB exploit among, single source, low information individuals. For example, white supremacists may or may not be fascists and many believe in democracy, they may or may not be capitalists or socialists, they may or may not be christians, they may or may not maintain a ethnic cultural stance or adopt the American culture. A similar profile can be created for any number of groups or individuals. The point is that it is clearly ignorant to assign a group or an individual any one of these attributes based on the others. But it is convenient and makes it easier for those who world rather place everything in neat little boxes in a manner that is consistent with their ideology and beliefs. Its easier to be lazy and label someone. Its easier to demonize a group or an individual by grouping labels together as though the are necessarily linked. And for so many people, at the end of the day it is easier to live in ignorant bliss and believe what they hear from individuals who even handle the ignorant labeling for them.

    Ah yes the classic context shift. Well let’s come at it from a different direction. How many people here think it is Ok, even noble, for an individual to kill an abortion provider? That is perhaps a better indicator of where someone sits on the left-right continuum and where their moral compass points.

    “I have absolutely no idea whether our tax returns and our tax payments are accurate.” But I’ll file them anyway since having no idea whether Iraq had WMDs didn’t change my decision to invade.

    The really stupid people are the ones who make up the controversy here. This is junior high school nonsense. Ms. Dunst expressed herself well and like most actors or actresses should limit her speech to herself, as rarely should any of them provide insights or give advice to anyone. Other than having above average wealthy they are perhaps the worst role models on the planet. As shown here, they actually believe that people care what the think or say.

    “judge convicted the 33-year-old lawyer of simple batteryAdd your comments” No a lawyer who commits any crime should have their license revoked immediately. Just like a physician who is purposefully negligent. These two professions have the strongest unions on the planet and control every aspect of the profession from schooling, licensing, peer review, license decisions, etc. They are the worst examples of unions we have.

    Ok what part about undercover cops looking the part is unique here. I thought it was going to be a story about a police department doing background checks on catholic priests.

    Way to rational for this group. And there will be a ton of anti-pot research funded by the alcohol industry and the anti-hemp interests who still realize most people are too stupid to differentiate between the two.

  • April 16, 2014 at 10:29am

    Would be interesting to see a similar study related to alcohol consumption and short term use of any number of over the counter drugs and cigarettes. Point being does the observed changes in the physical brain translate to any loss or potential GAIN in brain function. The loss of memory and brain function in alcoholics is well documented.

    If he is not joking it is a really good case against home schooling and why there should be protection for children who are provided with faith and belief based theories as opposed to science under the abuse laws. It is analogous to parents who don’t seek medical care for their children based on THEIR religious beliefs.

    Wrong the responsibility rests with those who promote a test that was written and edited by man as a substitute for PROVEN scientific fact. There is none, nada, zero scientific evidence to support a young earth. And there is boatloads of proven scientific FACT that the earth is millions, if not billions of years old. You can believe that there isn’t any gravity all you want, but you will return to an old earth everytime you jump. And there are those who like to say gravity is a scientific theory.

  • April 16, 2014 at 10:05am

    ROFL this is even funnier than the young earth stuff. Surely you are joking.
