    You heard the same things I did. Beck never gave support to Romney, and in a close race that can hurt conservative voter turnout. I recall his comments about Romney too. There’s always been some issue there. At first I thought it was that Beck didn’t want to appear overly zealous about a fellow Mormon. Now he’s driving a bigger wedge. I think Romney would have been a pretty decent President.

    Beck never supported Romney, and to give him a “Farewell Address” after not supporting him? Maybe Romney was left wondering what that message was.

    I agree. These “16 year olds” aren’t the 16 year olds of the old Leave it to Beaver era. We keep ignoring lawlessness. Sure, it makes the news, but then the “kid” is a hero who goes unpunished, while taxpayers pick up the tab for emergency services, police, airline delays, courts, etc., etc. I, for one, am tired of looking the other way while thoughtless, conscienceless, wild hoodlums cause havoc or violence. Throw him in jail.

    And Obama’s giving Detroit $100M why again? Why would anyone want a business or home there? Anything worth anything is ripped off or vandalized, and anyone on the wrong street is dead.

    Bravo to the decent blacks who stood together to take down this thug. It’s hard to get involved, but good for you. It gives me hope that the black community can pull together to stop violence and bad behavior on their own streets. We are all seeming to pay more attention to neighbors who need help. Maybe we’ve had enough.

    Why does anyone care about what a CokePimp-Snitch says?

    Some people fear old age, but it is oddly a gift. It gives both spouses opportunities they’ve never had before to express the deepest kind of love by providing physical and emotional care for each other. How hard it is to care for an invalid or dying spouse, especially when you are elderly yourself. Nothing else compares with that ultimate devotion and love.

    After the truck driver was beaten/robbed when stopping at the scene of an accident to help, here we see yet another case. We know who runs in vicious packs like this. The former marine learned the same lesson as the truck driver. In certain neighborhoods, drive on….

    I’m one who has marched in Arizona, Nevada, and DC with Tea Party groups, and I know where Beck is coming from. So far, the Tea Party is known for supporting the Constitution, wanting smaller government and taxes, getting out the vote in 2010, and becoming more involved in local politics, schools, etc. It’s also known as “racist”, which even the hard-core leftists know is a complete fabrication. So, so far, the Tea Party has a pretty good reputation, unlike OWS. But I’ve been concerned about large standoff like this, or the May 16th “American Spring” thing being planned. The problem is that kooks/anarchists get involved and the events can easily turn into lawlessness, violence, vandalism, and other behavior that are completely contrary to what the Tea Parties have stood for. This type of reckless behavior will unite the people of America AGAINST conservative groups, including Tea Parties, and any associated “cause”. The media is happy to make that happen. Let’s not make every event the OK Corral and reverse all the gains that we’ve made. So, in this, I understand what Glen is saying.

    The more we beat the victimhood drum, the more disgusted I get. I worked hard for my electrical engineering degree and graduated 2nd in my class. Very few women wanted to put in that same great effort, and many times I was the only female in the classroom. It wasn’t discrimination, it was lack of willingness to take the risk and make the sacrifice. Don’t talk to me about “self-esteem”. I had my doubts too, but so did many of the male students who we’re failing. I accomplished things at work and was ranked fairly and paid fairly. I would resent ANYONE…male, female, black, Asian, white, etc ….getting “equal pay” to mine without “equally earning it”, and I’m a woman. It’s a joke to think that companies want to pay someone a lot of money just for being a man, especially if they had a woman who was more competent and accomplished. That’s a good way to go down in flames.

    Unfortunately, the ones really watching this government with alarm are older Americans who know something about the Constitution and World/US history. The younger ones, as has been demonstrated in countless on-campus surveys, can’t name the Vice President or branches of government. I see the lack of care or involvement of the younger people in my own family. It’s dangerous and scary.

    Sorry, I can’t read this story and feel good about anything. The guy is a dwarf, and the loneliness, ridicule, and isolation he has undoubtedly suffered all of his life could drive even a normal person to great despair and risky behavior. The jokes about dwarfism i see here are what he’s always lived with. Yes, what he did was wrong, but I feel some compassion for a deformed, little, forgotten man who could never get a job, have a girlfriend, have family, have human contact, or have any of the good material comforts we all take for granted. Hope he is able to get the help he needs and is protected while in prison. We need to do better for the mentally ill in this country, the disabled, and chronically homeless. It’s easy to sit back, laugh about, and condemn them, but it says volumes about who we are as a society. I’m pretty hard-line about law and order, but I also feel some responsibility to help people like this before the fact.

    Once again, a leftist want to protect all us misguided people from the “untruths” our heads are being filled with. Free speech “frustrates” her. Only she should filter information and fill our heads.

  • April 11, 2014 at 3:18am

    Too many people like this are running the country today, and it’s falling fast. I am always amazed that people vote for them….amazed and scared.

    The asparagus thing is right in line with the Obama administration using ridicule to personally diminish a political opponent rather than answering questions in an honest way. That comment was well planned out in advance as a last “cool” shot. To associate Holder with the word “Justice” is a travesty.

    Power does seem to corrupt.

  • April 8, 2014 at 9:30am

    We need every conservative we can get in Congress, and Republicans are behaving like this? It’s more than a little irritating.

  • April 8, 2014 at 2:16am

    This is so dangerous for our country. I see it in my own grandkids. Everything focuses on them and their day-to-day. They have no interest or understanding of government, current events, or foreign affairs. As seniors die off, they will be easy pickings. It’s our fault for letting it happen.

    and…? Exactly WHAT will be done about it? At the moment we’re paying for Lerner’s cushy retirement benefits. How about something coming out of all this?

    The black race in the US has developed a “we vs. them” culture, which is why we’ll not know who all the assailants were. The prevailing culture is that white privilege has caused all their problems. Their children are raised on bitterness and victimhood, and most believe that such violence and theft is justified or at least understandable. Compassion is hard to find in these culturally inbred communities. There is chum, and there are cold-eyed sharks.
