    We need to elect citizens like this.

    It’s time to weed the lawyers union out of political office at every level.

    I didn’t see that joke comma’ing and it knocked me right out of my seat laughing! I hit my head and I think I’m falling into a comma.

  • April 24, 2014 at 8:02pm

    It probably just means the grammar teacher you had growing up was in a hurry to teach you!

  • April 24, 2014 at 7:56pm

    It’s subjective to the stressor element a writer seeks to achieve, and is defined by an author’s individual prose. Either with or with out the comma preceding the “and” is grammatically correct, though an editor may recommend a change either way if it’s decided it obstructs the flow of the narrative.

    I generally prefer to slow the narrative down in my writing, and so I use commas where ever I can. Other authors prefer a a more “speedy” prose and so they do not.

    There was no helping the dog; and even if the dog could be saved I doubt it could fulfill her usefulness any longer.

    She was a working dog, a cattle dog. When working dogs can no longer contribute, even though they are loved, they are put to pasture. That’s what it means to be a farmer, everything has a use or it is gotten rid of; even if it’s something loved.

    But I’m sure you wouldn’t know or understand that kind of philosophy. You’d rather that poor yelping dog remain in incredible pain so that you wouldn’t have to do the difficult and rightly action yourself. There’s nothing more selfish than to leave an animal to suffer because you are too squeamish to do the right thing.

    I hope I’m wrong, but fear I am right.

    @Rick, the shot wasn’t fatal.

    Watch the entire video and the owner talks about what happened.

    The dog laid on the ground yelping, crying in pain. The man asked the officer to end his dogs suffering, basically asked the officer to finish what he started. The officer declined, likely out of more cowardice. With no other way to humanely end the dog’s misery, the owner filled a bucket of water and drowned his dog in it to end her pain.

    This cop is a coward. Remove his badge and charge him with destruction of property; otherwise the people will have to assume this is considered acceptable behavior and with in the law by every other cop in that county.

  • April 24, 2014 at 12:01pm

    Another coward with a badge.

    Scared because of a 30 maybe 35 pound heeler?

    More people are killed by cops than dogs in this country. That’s a FACT. Does that mean if I feel threatened by the mere presence of a cop I can open fire and put him down? Can I do this while I’m standing on that cops property because his wife asked me to come over and mow the lawn but she failed to warn me about her cop husband and didn’t have her cop on a chain and his presence startled me as exited his house to jump in his cruiser?

    Errrgh!, what a freaking coward… Everyone knows this nutless man has waited months and months to find an excuse to fire his gun on the job so he could have a big boy story at the local watering hole.

    Cops who shoot dogs are cowards. Anyone who argues anything else is a nutless wimp.

    Sigh, the GOP voting base is just as moronic as the jackass voting base.

    Just like Chris Christie, when she entered office she was in “shore up” mode. Using language instead of action, theater, and publicity stunts instead of real leadership as she talked like a tough conservative; this act, this WWE side show, shored up conservative trust, confidence, and most importantly, future votes. You will know the GOP useful idiots because they will defend her, just like the “compassionate conservatives” that to this day still defend the Bush family legacy.

    The public rift she had with Obama was a show. But just like the tactics on left side of the aisle, it was a show that placates to the emotions of the voters. If unchecked by the voters they suddenly feel passion for her anger at the system; and it works. I don’t know who the politicians find easier to play, those who vote GOP or those who vote jackass; in the end both bases are just as ignorant as both ultimately rely on emotion rather than logic and reason when they enter the polling station.

    Wake up America, wake up.

    Not sure why he’s calling out Beck other than not being there; which I do think he should be more involved in…time to be honorable, courageous and loving: all those things he has made a lot of money off of restoring.

    But that said, as far as I am aware, all Beck has said is: Do not comply and do so peacefully.

    Is there some other sentiment Beck has said that I’m missing? Is there a link to the audio or video of Beck stating something else?

    If so, I’d like to tell Beck that one day a government goober may well decide that his property would be better served as a gooberment building used for making government funded and produced movies, radio shows, and campaign ads.

    At top speed the furthest ASIMO could go is about 3 miles at which point ASIMO’s batteries would need to be charged, which would take at least 3 hours; and that’s with a 240v charging station which we will assume is immediately available every time ASIMO runs out of juice.

    That means ASIMO will need to be charged at least 8 times in a 26.2 mile race. 8*3=24. It would take ASIMO over a day to run, at full speed, the Boston marathon.

    A lack of critical thinking is why the American consumer is such a sucker to marketing ploys and claims.

  • April 22, 2014 at 12:48pm

    So if one of us tackled a guy for yelling obscenities at us, we wouldn’t be arrested right away?

    That’s why people don’t trust the police. When a policeman likely breaks the law there’s a long internal affairs investigation, maybe some paid leave, and once the media moves on the officer is given a medal from something innocuous and unrelated. Start putting bad cops where they belong, in jail and in the justice system with all of the other criminals.

    “We never imagined 911 in our wildest dreams…”

    Speak for yourself, 9/11 reminded me very much of Dale Brown’s 1993 book “Storming Heaven”.

    Extraneous plot lines aside, the book was about a terror group hijacking and using commercial aircraft to terrorize the country and opened with a fictitious general sounding the alarm on a national TV talk show that our commercial airlines were vulnerable and our response capabilities to such an attack severely limited.

    Not even ten years later it became a rather prophetic piece of fiction.

    Blaze is either slow or I’m double posting:

    On Nov. 26, 2000, the Observer published “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,” a column by investigative reporter Gregory Palast (who has written for Salon) that outlined the cozy relationship enjoyed by the Bush family and the Barrick interests. Palast, who happens to be an American citizen, pointed out that Barrick’s U.S. subsidiary, Barrick Goldstrike, had donated over $100,000 to Republican committees in recent years; that Goldstrike had previously obtained a very sweet deal to mine gold on public lands in Nevada, pushed through during the final days of George H.W. Bush’s presidency; and that the former president had landed on Barrick’s payroll after leaving office, to peddle his influence with foreign leaders in exchange for a salary and stock options.

    Republican and Democrats are of the same ilk. Try them for treason and I’m sure the people will find them guilty and watch them dangle.

  • April 18, 2014 at 8:05pm

    There’s no investigation because Republicans do the EXACT same thing:

    In March and September, 2002, and again in 2003, the Bush Administration’s Department of Interior used armed BLM agents, helicopters, all terrain vehicles and large cattle trucks to begin “confiscating” (stealing) livestock from Western Shoshone lands, while Western Shoshones and their supporters were threatened with arrest. Between 2002 and 2003, hundreds of Western Shoshone cattle and horses were taken from the land in the area of Mt. Tenabo. The U.S. government sold the Western Shoshone livestock for pennies on the dollar, and the Western Shoshones never compensated for the property.

    Remember, all men are created equal.

    No one ever said:

    All men that are American citizens are created equal.

    So if all men are created equal, and you side with the brutality here because this man wasn’t a citizen, regardless of his immigration status, then you are conceding that it is okay to treat you, your daughter, and your grandmother with the same type of force.

    Let me ask you this… What if the parents are telling the truth? Do you admit that is a possibility? I can admit that perhaps they are playing us, I don’t believe they are but I recognize the possibility. But, if the parents are telling the truth, it is pretty horrifying, right?

    You don’t even need to ask that.

    The parents ARE in fact innocent. They are innocent because they have not been found guilty of a single infraction. They haven’t even been charged! You must assume the parents are innocent if you believe in the concepts of innocent until proven guilty, being made aware of the charges against you, facing your accusers in a public courtroom.

    But they can’t even face their accusers in the public square because of gag orders by the state!

    This is wrong, regardless of whatever evidence people like sosorry4u say they are aware of that the rest of us are evidently too lazy to seek out…

    I’ve kept up with this pretty well and I have still not seen enough evidence that would rationalize removing this child from her parents. I am aware of no criminal neglect charges; only charges based on conjecture that this family was too involved with the child’s medical needs with no exhibit A, B, or C to back the conjecture.

    I’m am not aware of any Tuft’s medical staff agreeing that the parents were over treating their daughter’s needs. Surely if something was amiss the people of Tuft’s would be saying that they agree with BCH and the state of Massachusetts.

    I feel I must speak my mind because I love my country. I know the shining hill will be forever out of man’s grasp and it is how we forever carry ourselves up that hill that will define us.

    Our forefathers we’re of much higher ilk than the discourse you encourage and I believe it disrespectful for someone to bring their names up in such inadequate words.

    There will be a day that God’s judgement is dealt, of this I am certain. And when that day comes I will want to know I have always been on His side. I will want Him to know that I withstood whips. I will want Him to know I withstood thorns. I will want Him to know I withstood spears. I will want Him to know I withstood nails. I will want Him to know that with Him I stood on a cross and forgave those who put me there; even if that person was you who derided and chastised the philosophy I believe Jesus Christ gave to us.

    God will always be victorious. And if God asked me to raise a sword I would; but how would I hear His message if I was standing so far away from Him because I was too busy allowing the hate, spite, and vitriol of both sides to sway me? I don’t believe I would, and for that I would be damned and those that did hear the trumpets of God would see to it I pay for my sins; yes, I’d choose martyrdom if that is God’s will.

    I pray you would too otherwise when you raise your sword I know it will be to the wrong calling; and when the men of God are commanded you will find your self on the losers side.

    If there was something as nefarious that would require the state to take custody of a child I would that charges against the parents would be levied so that said parents could face their accusers.

    The fact no charges have been delivered tells me that your suspicions of something “strange” are as well formed as the suspicions of those folks who believe we never landed on the moon.

    Frankly, I think the the strange part is how the state is handling this. I’m more suspicious of the state’s motives than the parents. I mean, think about it. Public healthcare started in Massachusetts. The federal system was drafted after the MA plan. We all know healthcare is expensive. Treating diseases is a lot more expensive than telling someone “Hey you’re fine. It’s all in your head. Send in the next please.” This is especially expensive when we are treating someone who has a disease, that requires a lot of resources to treat, that will never be what society would consider as a productive member of society, EVER. It makes no sense to use those resources on them; they’ll never be able to pay it back. Might as well call it a psychiatric issue and be done with them.

    If Glenn Beck announced a prayer vigil at the steps of where this little girl is being held I would take work off and drive up there. I would pray at those steps until she was returned to her family. If I was escorted away by the police I would allow them to book and process me. Upon my release I would kneel on the steps of the police department and pray that one of them is a good man and talks some sense into the people running the shows in Boston. And if they book and reprocess me again, the entire process would be repeated.

    Eventually our prayers would be answered.

    So what do you say Glenn? A revisit of Restoring Honor on the steps of the building Justina is being illegally held captive? You have surrounded yourself by men of God for a reason. Religious leaders who you told us you respected because they walk the walk. Give them a podium. Give them a real ministry. Give them a chance to show people what Jesus, Moses, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King would do if they were confronted by the evils we are confronted with.

    Glenn, you have a great opportunity to not only bring us just the news; you have an opportunity to galvanize the compassion of all men and show them what the Good News really looks like. It’s time for the religious leaders to unite in a common cause. They need to be out front and lead the people for surely that void of leadership will be filled sooner rather than later it seems.

    If I tried to organize it, would anyone come?

  • April 15, 2014 at 10:58pm

    As far as I know Glenn Beck has always said Do Not Comply And Do So Peacefully. As far as where I stand right now, that doesn’t sound crazy. To me that sounds logical, rational, and moral.

    I’m not sure what you are meaning by these antagonistic comments I keep seeing popup from names I seldom see on the Blaze, nor how you might think your comments add any real measure of intellectual honesty to the discourse.

    You sound like the characterized WWE fans from a South Park episode; you should go post on Comedy Central. Your tenacity at delivering emotional ploys would be served better with humor than with a topic covering something serious like liberty. I consider your discourse to be more of Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf than Patrick Henry; at that guy was hilarious in his hay day.

    I truly hope you come to understand the stakes of dealing with evil. Hate, vitriol, spite, and revenge are all tools of evil even in the hands of well intending men.
