    There are so many things to be pointed out here.

    There is the obvious:
    Voters are not stupid, most conservative and libertarian voters understood. It is liberal voters that are stupid and willfully so.

    Yes liberal elites really do see the people as sheep that must be controlled and subjugated for their own good.

    And there is the not so obvious:
    Liberal economist actually do understand the fundamental forces that control the markets however they feel they can violate those basic principles and force the market to respond in ways contrary to its own best interest. It does work in the short term but with disastrous results each an every time.

    Just look at the root causes of the housing bubble as an example. The government force banks to provide loans to less that acceptable applicants for homes. The Comunity organizers figured it out and started screaming racism everytime someone of darker skin tone was denied a line of credit….the banks not wishing to fight that front went all in on the government guidelines and as a result they had to distribute the risk. The rest is history.

    Under the best coverage for Obamacare the family deductible is $12,500 or roughly more than any lower middle class or working poor family has in disposable income. Without meeting that deductible it is highly unlikely you would receive any care even remotely close to what Glenn has managed to secure.
    If I understand correctly most of his care seems to be under the category of “experimental” and as such definitely is not covered at all under Obamacare.
    With that said my family’s heart and prayers go out to Mr. Beck and his family. His sharing of his health issues provided much needed perspective on his change in outlook. It goes a long way into understanding what he has been saying. From an overhead view his dreams and aspirations of “restoring love” now make 110% sense. Most people when faced with true life threatening situations rarely step so far outside their own ideologies.
    I am usually an optimistic person and I wish I could offer an optimist thought on the “restoring love” idea but I am afraid that what Mr. Shultz has shown is as close to compassion as the modern leftist can ever hope to achieve. I used to have liberal friends but in the last few years they have shown themselves to abandon all rational thought I order to cling to ideology. The last truly civil discussion I had with a liberal was 4 years ago. Since then it seems no matter what I say I am just an ignorant racist, misogynistic pig. At that point I will prepare for the worst and let them fall.

    Of course she was getting sacked, she was challenging the Administration and CBS was not happy.

    Gotta love that (“vaccines cause austism” lunatic movement) statement of yours. Largely ignoring the fact that several courts including in the United States have found sufficient evidence that it is true. Also ignoring that the agency responsible for the research stating that vaccines are safe happens to be the CDC who for some reason can not seem to stay on top of standard procedures and protocols involving disease.

    The same agency that finds most of its researchers and executives from a pool of vaccine manufacturers. I am sure the revolving door of employment between the vaccine manufacturers and the CDC represents no conflict of interest what-so-ever. There is absolutely nothing suspicious about a researcher working to create a vaccine leaving and going to work for the CDC then after they are employed at the CDC they get to determine if the vaccine they helped create is safe and they also get to recommend it be made a mandatory vaccine then they leave the CDC and go back to work for the vaccine manufacture as a VP in charge of the Vaccine division. You would have to be a “lunatic” to think something is not totally kosher at the CDC.
    Yup and how she destroyed her credibility, it sure is a shame. Being targeted by the Administration like a lot of other reporters that were wire tapped and raided. If she had just reported the gospel as it was presented by jay carney…

    Actually this is a different sort of case as the owners of the business are ordained ministers and as such their service is also religious speech. It does not matter if the service is a for profit or not for profit business what matters is do accommodation laws (that is what is being persued in this case) allow the government to force an individual to to give religious speech against their belief.

    This is the slippery slope that was warned against. Since there is no reason to doubt the veracity of the owners statements that they are religiously opposed to gay marriage. A position they already took before gay marriage was an issue in Utah. The next question is does the government Have a right to compell a private citizen to violate their religious beliefs upon pain of losing their livelyhood should they not comply?

    In order for the government to force this issue they have to assume they can both violate the separation clause and the individuals 1st amendment rights. If this is so then it certainly is no stretch of the imagination that the government can then create regulations on religious speech and expression. At this point I would make a joke about the 1st church of the united gay Caballeros but considering the last few years of federal over-reach it seems like it may not be a joke.

    So is that the same lame excuse you use when watching a man beat a child or a woman being raped? It is not your call? So as a “Christian” do you think on judgement day the simple excuse for your moral ambiguity will hold much water in the eyes of The Lord?

    When something is clearly morally wrong and it rises to the level of knowing with certainty that it is a violation of Gods law. You can take a stand or you can deny your lord there is no middle ground.

    Because: “we hold these truths to be SELF evident, that all men are created equal”

    That would indicate that as a nation we should recognize that all humans at the moment of creation until the moment of death have an acknowledged equality.

    “that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,”

    This indicates that they, i.e. All human being from the moment of creation have rights which no man or woman for that matter may take away. And to act in a manner contrary is to commit a crime against the very nature of being human.

    “that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    And then those very basic human rights that are so precious to the civilized man are clearly spelled out. Notice the very first recognized right it to life.

    So since the likelihood of a human woman woman becoming pregnant with any creature other than another human being it is a fair bet to say both the woman and the physician are committing criminal conspiracy to deprive someone of their basic human rights.

    Is that clear enough?

    So the vid cuts in after the cops drew down when the passenger was looking for id. The cop forward of the pilar is the most likely first to be shot if something does goes south. The officer is clearly standing In a relaxed poster with hands empty. The officers posture does not suggest fear for safety it boldly shows he is not afraid of any resistance that may be offered.

    The civilian in the car is under no obligation to act responsibly or even respectfully towards the officers and having a gun drawn on him for the horrific crime of looking for his ID probably did not put him in a friendly mindset. Clearly both sides got past the gun drawing so there must have been something to put the officers back at ease, however they did not continue the path of de-escalation.

    The officers however as public servants do have an obligation to act responsibly and civilly a responsibility they clearly had no interest in as they pushed to escalate the matter.

    I totally agree they were acting like men of the flesh and not being spirit filled or led. I am just saying the reactions of the crowd were to be expected.

    I am saying if my family were placed in danger and driven from their land because a country (any country) made a “peace” agreement I would not expect to be a very gracious person. I would try and I would pray a whole lot. but I can not say with any certainty I would be able to reach that place of peace and grace.

    Maybe Ted Cruz should have done his homework and found out the relationship with these Christians and Israel?

    Many of them lived in places like the West Bank or Gaza so when Israel pushed or made agreements and created a predominantly Muslim populations in these areas it had a natural affect on the Christians already living there. Not mention most of the Christians in Israel are Arab not Jew and ethnically tied to Palestinians not Israelis

    When Christ gave his message it may have been as a rabbi and a jew but it resonated with the down trodden of the nation who were not Jews or were lower class jews. Not much has changed.

    There is another myth I wish would be dispelled in that silencers while reducing the noise of a firearm do not actually silence it. I have neighbor that live near enough that I want a silencer for my AR in case I have to kill a pig or two at 3 am but that will at best make my AR sound more like a 22. After getting the information together and realizing I would need to set up a corporation to allow my son daughters or wife to shoot it without me around I found it was cheaper to just put up predictor fencing around my whole property and I did not have to wait 6 months to 1 year.

    Hopefully you have one that can be cleaned and serviced without being classified as a new silencer and having to pay the stupid tax again. But either way it does ad to the “look at what I got” factor. It is like owning a .50 Barrett or a Bugatti Veyron. It is not like you will use it every day but to be the only guy on the block that has one.

    I have known a few people who have own fully automatic weapons. Yes it is expensive and the paperwork is a pain. Most of the weapons are highly collectible. In the case of one it was a Thompson sub-machine gun once owned by a Chicago mobster. Not exactly the kind of gun one takes to the range regularly. In fact the gun itself was under more secure lock up than anyone who ever held it.

    And no I do not recall who the mobster was but it was not any of the really famous ones.

    It is sad that my 7 year old daughter is not allowed to tell one of her grandmothers that she has hunted with a rifle and has field dressed her kill and then cooked it with her dad. It is what I consider an accomplishment and something to be very proud of. She worked hard to prove she could be responsible and trusted. But Grandmas extreme left wing tendencies and her reaction to finding out there were guns in the house at all was enough to let me know she would be worse than any nanny type found in any playground.

    I was a kid in the 1970′s and a teen in the 1980′s. At the age of 10 my friends and I would ride our bikes about 5 miles to the pier at 3 am to go fishing without parental supervision. All the cops that would make a swing by the pier knew us and never had much to say except to know what was being caught and what bait we were using. The only thing to come out of it was occasionally a cop would come back after his shift with similar bait and join us.

    Come to think of it we had filet knives in our tackle boxes and some of us had buck knives on our belts (real buck knives not the crap they sell now.) Not only were we being neglected by todays standards were were also armed with dangerous weapons. Strange none of us were kidnapped, killed or even killed someone else. Sure we occasionally did stupid stuff and once we even broke the law by jumping from the railing of the pier into the water.

    The only thing that prevents me from giving the same freedoms to my kids is the threat of arrest and loosing my kids. Having strong libertarian viewpoints, a homestead property and certain issues with Government over-reach means I understand I am a prime person to “make an example of” I am angry that the thought should even enter my head and that in essence some if not much of my parenting choices are affected not by what I think is right and good but by what might happen if I am reported to the Government. 1 or 2

    In reply to the contribution How the Government Became the Parent Police

    you know maybe you should try trying to steer a vehicle on a dirt track and avoid hitting the moving target that is coming straight at you. you have a few options turn hard left which will likely cause you to lose traction starting you sliding to the right then you will have to try and put on the power to try and force the car back straight and attempt to go left again or turn right and try to regain traction or just sit there and do nothing. He was not fair game when he walked onto the track that much is clear, however the choice to walk onto a track wearing all black and proceed to walk straight at an oncoming vehicle on a track that is not known for having much traction was at best a very stupid idea some would say insane and suicidal.

    When those cars are entering a turn and moving at 80 MPH there is not much that can stop them at the point of entry to the turn the drive is not focused on the outside of the track he is looking at the Apex and the path to the Apex everything else is someone elses problem hence the reason for racing on a track and not in a residential neighborhood.

    It is sad for the family but if the kid did not take into account where a drivers focus would be coming up to a turn perhaps he should never have gotten into racing as he obviously did not understand how to drive fast.

    rule # 1 never get out of the car on the track unless it is on fire.
    rule # 2 if you got a problem with another driver save it for the pits.

    Man it is funny how a bunch of so called conservatives who claim to like facts and reason just fall to pieces and become emotional basket cases when something happens they do not like.

    I guess we are supposed to be a nation of laws when a president ignores them but we should go with the consensus when it is someone we like. We should hold truth to be the highest achievement except when it may harm our view of someone called a “Hero”.

    Some people thought Micheal Vic was a hero, sorry they were wrong. Hell I have a Bo Bergdahl yellow bracelet from 2010 damn was I wrong. Big f’ing deal pull your panties out of your crack and get over it.

    Ventura had a high hill to climb he had to prove that Kyle lied and he did it for profit or malice, he then had to prove that he was in fact damaged by it.

    This happened at a SEAL reunion and in a bar full of operators, people who are supposed to have a certain level of situational awareness and be able to provide a report of the events after the fact. the witnesses for Kyle were so inconsistent that they were considered unreliable at best and out right liars at the worst. Either way they discredited themselves. Let that sink in and stew for a bit.. they could not get their stories to jive with each other. and these are so called trained professionals.

    Sure Jesse is an ass, that is not the question. The question was did Kyle lie and did he profit from his lie at the expense of Ventura.

    While stopped going to walmart for anything I could get elsewhere (because they were part of the obamacare cheerleaders) the letter is still good.

    But there is still the issue of the use of red pen….I thought the teachers goons er union decided red pen can hurt the self esteem of the special little snowflakes?

    And everyone knows if you work for the New York Times odd are you a so special you need your own bus and helmet.

    A few years ago I wanted to teach my young daughters to fish so the plan was simple an ugly stick and Abu Garcia reels for both. Imagine my surprise when I discovered neither is made in America. Oh you can get a custom job from Shakespeare and Abu Garcia for about $1200.00 but a cheap well made rod and real for a kid not so much.

    Ultimately I hade to visit many secondhand, antique and pawn shops to find what as a kid I just grabbed at the bait shop. Fortunately I grew up in a time when fishing meant also knowing your gear we’ll enough to tune and repair it, something else the bait shop guy does not do anymore.

    They are called RUB’s rich urban bikers. And they routinely hear $15k and 15 miles does not make you a biker.

    Come now we have all seen the videos of a person laying prone on the ground while 6 or 7 thugs er uh I men police officers shout “Stop Resisting” and continue to pummel the person. Just because you are being pinned to the ground and repeatedly beaten and or gazed is no excuse for not doing whatever it is the cops want you to do….even if two or three are shouting contradictory orders.
