” the lake trout measured in at 43.75 inches — that’s more than three feet long.”
Have we really reached the point where we have to be told that 43 inches is over 3 ft? smh

@Kiba, I’ve done the same thing with bottles of beer. You put them in the freezer and leave them. Take them out and they appear to still be liquid, but as soon as you pop the top, ice starts to form. Maybe it has to do with breaking the vacuum?

Another example of people voting for the promise of somebody else’s capital. She promised to give them a $15 min wage and they fell all over themselves to get her elected.

What I find hilarious about that, is The Blaze is more of an aggregator of the news. Most of the content I see on here is credited to Huff Po, Business Insider, the AP, etc. The stories that ARE from The Blaze staff, I’ve seen reported in some shape or form on other outlets. So I’m curious about these unproven stories that attack the left…

@Saranda – Graduated as in received a diploma? Sure I believe Columbia gave him a degree. If you read the first article from earlier in the week, the author says he believes that Obama has a degree from Columbia. The questions he’s asking, is what did Obama do to earn that degree? Apparently, he wasn’t in any of the pre-law/poli-sci classes. Nobody remembers him in class or on campus. If you look it up on fact checker.org, his roommate talks about his time at Columbia and they have an email from ONE person who remembers playing soccer with him on campus. Other than that, he’s vapor…

Lindsey Graham is an idiot!! That is all…

Why does that placard say “Hon. Napolitano”? I’m assuming that’s supposed to be short for Honorable? Shouldn’t it be Sec Napolitano? Sorry, my OCD kicked it…
“there’s been so much reported on this that’s been wrong I can’t even begin to tell you, congressman,”
If she can’t tell them anything, then why is she there? Why can’t she report what she does know?
Doing our own research like looking up the laws pertaining to the carrying of long guns in TX? There is not specific law that prevents the open carry of a long gun in TX. There is a clause that states it can be considered disorderly conduct if a person “displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm”. That’s a class C misdemeanor and would be open to interpretation as to whether the manner in which he was carrying was intended to cause alarm.
Or did you mean doing our research, like actually watching the video of the incident? In which, the officer has to ask if he has any other firearms and has to lift up his shirt to retrieve the .45 on his left hip?
As for the feral pigs, they will charge you without provocation and there tusks will do some nasty damage. From the video, didn’t look like there were a lot of trees to climb. Have YOU ever faced one down empty handed? What about empty handed with your teenage son right beside you?
Regardless of his need to carry, this is more about the attitudes of the officers involved. One stated they were exempt from the law and there attitude toward disarming was just one step below shooting first and asking questions later.

While I applaud the business owner for standing up and stating the reason they did not want to provide service, when will they learn?
The correct answer to that is, “Sure we can do that. Oh, wait! You said the 5th? Oh no, sorry I’m already booked for that day. I can recommend another florist for you if you’d like.”
Yeah... because hiding our convictions and pretending to get along has gotten conservatives so far, right? That's how you get media proclamations of "the new normal" and bullsh!t poll results... nobody wants to be targeted by the radical left. Just shut up and get along. Can't get elected if you tell the truth, so just lie for the greater good.
Can't b!tch about lying politicians when all we do is encourage them to do so. When Obama lies right to their faces and they eat it up, they get what they deserve. They engage in willing suspension of disbelief because he tells them what they want to hear. In the long run, how does that seem to be working out.

Well, since MagPul is located in CO, probably thousands. (At least until they pass this bill and MagPul makes good on it’s promise to leave the state).

They are still parading her in front of the cameras! Everybody will continue to focus on her answers and the information that she gave. At the end of the day, her answers can be dismissed out of hand. She can be given the benefit of the doubt, that the situation was fluid, and that they were still trying to nail down specifics within 5 days of the attacks.
What can’t be dismissed and what people really should be asking (IMHO) is why was the ambassador there that night? (Running guns to Syrian rebels maybe?) And why after two full weeks was the administration still claiming a YouTube video led to a protest that started the attack?

Since the lawyer that replied to the USPS represents a traffic cam operator, I would assume that these violations had absolutely nothing to do with parking and everything to do with moving violations. I would guess running red lights and/or speeding.

The moral of the story, is that if you don’t want to do it (for whatever reason) after asking the names, you ask for the date. Whatever the answer is, you pause, check your schedule and tell them you can’t do it for that date, that you already have other commitments scheduled.
What I’ve never understood is why a “customer” would want a business to provide a service for them if the business’s heart wasn’t in it. It just goes to show that most people have no comprehension of the free market system. If you don’t like the way a business does something, tell your friends, spread the word, boycott them. If there are enough like minded people, then you will get them where it hurts: the bottom line.

And who was president when the Waco siege happened? I’ll give you a hint, it wasn’t a Republican.
You’re probably the 7th or 8th person I’ve heard use the rocket launcher/tank/nuclear warhead argument. Really? That’s the “logical” conclusion that you jump to? That’s your end game? I’ve been around fire arms my entire life and I have yet to hear a single gun owner say anything about owning a tank or a rocket launcher.

It’s all in the phrasing of the question:
“At any time did you see the INITIAL attack on a monitor with the president?” Rohrbacher asked.
They would not have had time to task the drone on the initial attack on the embassy/mission. But we know that the protracted battle took place at the CIA Annex. Was there real-time video of that?

Why in the name of all things holy is there an ad asking you to sign Al Franken(weenie)’s petition to overturn Citizen’s United because “Corporations are NOT people”?
Because he paid for the ad space which was a waste of money since almost no one here will sign it.

Here’s the thing…the government brings in enough revenue (taxes) to pay its debts (at least before Obamacare), i.e. Mandatory spending. If we don’t raise the debt ceiling, things like SS and Medicaid can still be paid. What won’t be funded is all the discretionary spending, things like the EPA, FDA, etc. So to say that we would default on our debts is a lie at best.

@Glenn – I can’t say whether the actions of the cop were justified or not. However, I can say that the (over)reaction of these 200 people is both hilarious and sad.
