    Sounds a lot like the Civil War, no? That was necessary too. Ugly, wasteful, father against son, brother against brother, but a seminal moment in U.S. History. All wars are terrible. Some are necessary.

    “…And God does not call anyone to anger. God does not call anyone to vengeance ever, ever, ever.” So, ever read the Old Testament, Glenn? You know that it is still an official part of the Bible, right? It’s not just the New Testament…

    “Rainbows and unicorns” Glenn? If it weren’t for American farmers picking up their rifles and opposing the attempted confiscation of their arms and ammunition by the British at Lexington and Concord we wouldn’t be a nation. “Disperse ye Rebels…in the name of the Crown disperse!”, shouted the Royal Marine major commanding from his horse. A shot was fired. A ragged volley followed. It was disciplined British regulars in massed formation against ordinary American farmers and tradesmen in a mob, and the British won, but more Minutemen began arriving from the surrounding countryside and the British forces began their long retreat back to Boston, their mission unaccomplished. The Rebels lost the battle but won the retreat by cheating. They followed the British column and sniped at them individually from behind stone walls and trees, killing and wounding many more British troops than the Americans had lost at Lexington and Concord. Longfellow said it best in “Concord Hymn”…”By the rude bridge/That arched the flood/Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled/Here the American farmers stood/And fired the shot heard ’round the world…” Nonviolence is not the solution to all problems, Glenn. Read History…ask around.

    Glenn keeps beating the “nonviolence” drum and invoking Gandhi and MLK vis a’ vis resistance to our overbearing and repressive federal government. Sorry Glenn, but the mantra “violence never solves anything” leaves out little details like the American Revolution, WWI and WWII. And it certainly does not take cognizance of Mormon history. I suggest you go to Google and look up “The Utah War” of 1856-57, when armed Mormon militia harassed 2,500 Federal troops sent to Utah to put down what was perceived in Washington as a rebellion by Utah’s Mormon settlers by force. Cooler heads eventually prevailed, but the Nauvoo Legion was both well-armed and prepared to fight Federal troops to protect their homes and families.

    This school principle is beneath contempt. As a veteran public school teacher I am appalled that this young man has been subjected to this kind of constant bullying and lack of support by his teachers and the school administration. The demonstrated lack of discipline in the classroom is evident. The principle is more interested in legally covering his butt than in good educational practice and pedagogy. For shame…

    Glenn, we have been at war with radical Jihadis and the countries that covertly support them for more than a decade, and there is no end in sight. Would you please hire at least one veteran on your staff that has some concept of military equipment? The vessel shown at the lead-in on this piece is NOT an Iranian warship. The Iranians have no aircraft carriers, and they have no Harrier jump-jets. The photo is a stock photo of a British “ramped-bow” aircraft carrier and the aircraft launching is a British Harrier G-7.

    With 97% of the Black electorate voting for Barak Obama I suspect the Democrats should look in a mirror before they play the racism card. There were substantial numbers of whites in this country who voted for President Obama too, showing at least that one race, if not the other, is not prejudiced or biased. The GOP has a number of well-known Black Conservatives who are very popular with Republican voters, but Democratic lawmakers have variously described them as “Uncle Toms”, “Oreos” and other racially-disparaging terms because they don’t “know their place” and have strayed from the Democratic plantation. So which Party has substantial racist elements?

    Yet another pre-election Democratic publicity campaign to garner the female “uninformed voter” demographic. The GOP “War on Women” is a propagandist-generated myth. If you want to see a “War on Women” see what happens to any well-educated and outspoken woman of color who self-identifies as a conservative.

    Mr. Holder, you lose a lot of credibility when you are the Black Attorney General of the United States and you are complaining about you and your 2-term Black President being discriminated against… How about fewer lame excuses and more attention to the job you swore to do when your took your oath of office?

    Problem solved, no costs to the taxpayers, no burden on the police or courts or prison system…what’s not to like?

    Ditto New York State and their SAFE Act. People will not comply.

    Go read “The Federalist Papers” wesker, your ignorance is showing: “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.” (Richard Henry Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer (1788) at 169)

    I am a veteran high school teacher—not in California, thank God—and if attacked by a student we have the right here to defend ourselves. Even very good teachers with good classroom control of their students occasionally get some knucklehead—especially in the Springtime when the sap is rising—who thinks it would be cool to take a swing at a teacher. When it happens, if there is going to be any overall discipline in a school and any learning taking place, the student needs to be stopped, right there, right then, as an example. Teachers, like anyone else have the right to self-defense, to protect themselves from bodily harm and to also protect their other students.

    Obama is so horrendous that we tend to forget that Bushes 1 & 2 were progressive RINOs. This country fought a nasty 8-year revolution to get rid of a hereditary aristocracy and we do not need another. No more Bushes, no more Gores, no more Cuomos, no more Clintons, Romneys, Kennedys or any other political families who consider slopping at the public trough “the family business”.

    Oh really? “Rioting, looting and misbehaving” was certainly a long-term solution to our separation from Great Britain, wasn’t it? It turned into a revolution which we won. Tom Jefferson, a strong proponent of the 2nd Amendment, thought that the American people would probably rise up in armed rebellion against the central government every 20 years or so, to trim it back and teach the politicians their place.

    Stand strong, Brother. Semper Fi.

    I support cutting the DOD. What I do not support is cutting muscle instead of fat. The Obama Administration is cutting Army and Marine combat units, AF fighter and CAS wings and Navy warships. They are not touching the DOD civilian bureaucracy—those people have powerful federal unions which contribute heavily to Democratic election coffers. Don’t ask generals and admirals what should be cut and what should be retained to leave us with a viable military force, ask lower and mid-level NCO’s and officers up through the grade of lieutenant-colonel. Generals and admirals, most of them, get a lobotomy at “charm school” where they learn to be political. They care about military and Washington politics and which major defense contractor they will get a cushy job with when they retire. Ask the troops to get honest answers on what to cut and what to keep for a strong, cost-effective defense.

    This Administration and the Congress have already eviscerated military readiness, pay and benefits and broken faith with our military veterans and retirees. Now they want to take “unused military funding” and give it in foreign aid to the IMF and Ukraine? Our tax money at work…or at least more money borrowed from China and put on our children’s and grand-children’s tab. President Obama and his Democratic Senate cronies are like crack addicts. “No man…seriously…I’m going to quit. Just as soon as I score this one last hit. I just need one more taste…”

    Go away old man. Retire with some shred of dignity left. The days of inside-the-Beltway RINOs going along to get along are over. Oh, and take your friend John McCain with you…
