I am a retired teacher in Idaho, with 17 years of teaching experience. At least in my state if a kid physically attacks a teacher the teacher has the right to self-defense. (As a 22+ year-retired Marine with a brown belt in Karate, if this had happened to me in my classroom there would have been a much different outcome…)

Don’t waste your time and energy debating with trolls. They are despicable. As the man said, “Never wrestle with a pig. You get all muddy and the pig likes it.” Just go pay to see the movie, draw your own conclusions about Chris Kyle, and maybe go buy a copy of the book and read that too, because his widow sure could use the money what with the Jesse Venture lawsuits still rolling in. Let’s make Hollywood and the nation stand at attention and acknowledge how most Americans feel about our fighting men for a change. Knock this one out of the park, people… Semper Fi.
It is tough to fault someone who commits a random act of kindness. It can change people’s lives. Pay it forward…

It’s endemic in the Midwest. We sent sent our daughter from the predominantly-conservative northern Idaho Panhandle to one of the best small liberal arts colleges in the country: Carleton College in Northfield, MN. I called her at school once, and in the course of our conversation asked her how the Republicans on campus felt about the recent election results. “Dad”, she said, tolerantly amused, “There ARE no Republicans at Carleton…”

Appropos, I am sure, of absolutely nothing, President Obama’s NIH spent almost half a million dollars on a study to determine why three-quarters of lesbians are fat…

Way to go, Houston. Follow the now-classic Obama defense on political screw-ups that brew a firestorm and claim “I didn’t know”…

She’s Black. The CDC let her fly commercial from Dallas to Cleveland. Presumably she was visiting friends and relatives there. They probably are part of Cleveland’s majority Black inner-city population. This Administration and its Executive Branch are so incompetent it makes you want to cry. If that virus gets loose in Cleveland’s inner city population it’s “Katie Bar the Door” for an epidemic that will make the Black Death look like a bad head cold. Oh…and the media are not covering the fact that the aircraft she was on then flew 5 more commercial flights before the CDC notified the airline there was a problem and the plane was withdrawn from service and deconned. They say they are trying to contact the 134 other passengers who were on the Cleveland flight and quarantine them…what about the other 5 planeloads of passengers? The liberal media are desperately trying to protect Democratic candidates from being tarred with the same brush as President Obama and his merry band of incompetents, but if the lid comes off and more and more Americans test positive for Ebola there may not BE a Democratic Party after November 4th…

The suit probably “fail her”…it’s not magical armor. As a retired military guy I have spent many, many days in what the military calls “MOPP4″, which is protective suit, gas mask, rubber gloves and rubber booties—total coverage. I also had innumerable classes on NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) warfare, and we trained on a regular basis on donning and then carefully removing the MOPP gear. If you have been in a contaminated environment, the most difficult thing to do is to REMOVE the suit properly. The outside may well be contaminated, and there is a specific way to remove all the gear, and then to properly dispose of same to avoid contamination. It generally takes at least two people—the wearer and a suited assistant—to properly remove the suit and gear. And anything that was not in the suit with you that was exposed in the contaminated environment has to be decontaminated too. Then the location you disrobed in has to be decontaminated too… It is a tortuous process, it takes a long time, and you have to get it right every time or you die. Most medical personnel simply have not had the extensive training they need to stay alive while treating Ebola patients.

Take down American flag and U.S. Marine Corps stickers? Not bloody likely… The Chief is drunk with power and has stepped over the line.

Hey, Obama has been elected twice and he isn’t constituutionally-qualified either… That bridge has been crossed.
Lots of proof Our Boy is a Kenyan. The proof is his two fake birth certificates and what him and her said on TV. They are there because the US has lots of low-information voters and lots of extra votes. And soros owns the foreign company that counts the computer votes.
meaningless. This isn't "Hearts" and "the suit has been "broken". Or some kind of Realpolitik Virginity.
Something my mother told me about two wrongs.. comes to mind

Jeh is not “enforcing immigration law”, he is violating it. And no one is holding him and his boss accountable. It is a national disgrace, and they will pay for it in November.
Fat chance, Progs control the entire voting apparatus! All I hear is bravado about how we intend to vote them out while exhibiting no concern for, or producing any activity aimed at protecting and/or verify the legitimacy of said vote. So, how do you intend to make them pay for establishing their complete control over you? The Progs have enslaved America and are three months away from slamming shut and locking the escape-hatch!
This is not about politics, it's a war between Moral Relativism v Moral Absolutism! In the past fifty years America has virtually abandon Moral Absolutism because the Left teamed with the worlds most brilliant entity!

Lyndon Johnson, in private, was as racist as they come. His intent for the “Great Society” programs, which he accomplished, was to beggar Blacks in this country and make them dependent upon government. He commented to his cronies, “The passage of the “Great Society” legislation means that I will have those Ni–ers voting Democratic for the next 100 years.”
Kin: unfortunately they have NEVER learned! Look where they are today? Still at the plantation AKA The Guberment!!!

“The soldiers we humiliated in Iraq…”? Two words for you, Mr. RIF…”Fallujah, Ramadi”. The “Caliphate” sent jihadi fighters from all over the world to those cities to fortify them and to hand the U.S. major defeats. The U.S. Army and the U.S. Marines killed them in droves and drove the remainder out. You don’t even want to think about U.S. troops coming back to Iraq and going toe to toe with you again. Not that we would…why “fight fair”?

Transfer to a school in a state that allows concealed carry on campus. Dartmouth used to be a pretty good university, but in the last couple of decades its faculty and its administration have gone so far left that they might as well be Moscow State. You would be well out of there, be safer, and get a better, more rounded, education.

Hamas has 3000 “elite soldiers”? Probably not—see as evidence Arab troops’ performance in ’48, ’67 and ’73—but willing to blow themselves up? You betcha. No women, no booze, no education, no job, no future…why not?

I laughed when he was nominated to be Secretary of State. I knew just how bad he would be in the job, but I figured he and Barak Obama deserved each other. Actual observation has shown that he is worth the price of admission just for his continual gaffes.

Dear Massachusetts citizens: If you don’t want thousands of illegal “children” released into your state, consider, for a change, electing someone other than leftist-liberal politicians to represent you. The two ARE connected, you know…
I think this is precious. They should go to the governor's mansion and the Kennedy compound to house these illegals. I'm sure plenty of room at both places. These idiotic liberals will never learn. Sad!

She is a delegate to the House only by courtesy. She represents D.C., and has no vote in the House. Pay her no attention.
You mean because of her "heritage they had to find her a position.....or else!

…And the Mom STILL doesn’t think she did anything wrong, and wants an apology from the store? Mind-boggling. You can take a low-class redneck out of the holler but you can’t take the holler out of the low-class, no-standards redneck… I feel sorry for her kids.

One-trick pony. All Obama is good at is giving pre-scripted speeches off his teleprompters at election rallies and fund-raisers. The man skipped his daily security briefing each day for six days prior to Benghazi…
