    I can’t believe what I’m hearing. Imagine – just for a moment – the ones who ARE victims in this. Not all of them are, no, but thousands who are. Imagine their terrified state in just traveling here, especially in knowing they may never see their families again, and horrified that their families would do such a thing – how worthless and scared they would be.
    Now add to that, once they get here, a small consolation to help them feel some sense of relaxation, peace, or a moment of care. How evil is Glenn Beck for that?
    I’ve been there – in a foreign country no less, with small children, escaping to a women’s shelter, and I can’t help but recognize the similar situation. Yes, the very night we arrived, the children were given a small toy to feel safe – toys that were donated. Yes, there were women there exploiting the system, women who shouldn’t have been there, using it for the wrong reasons, and even brought danger to the shelter. But is that a reason to shut the whole thing down and start shooting at the approaching women and children who were being victimized – just to get at the ones who were abusing the system?
    There has to be a way to compassionately take care of our own in need, as well as those in need at our door. We just have to figure it out, and the scriptures are a good blueprint as to how.

    X – are you MY husband? Hmm.. Maybe his twin. My husband would’ve said “sammich.”

    Clearly you have never experienced the abuse that comes from a porn-addicted spouse. I had to take me and my little ones to a women’s shelter to escape my then husband and his abuse after his years of porn addiction. Those who participate in it develop a second person who is seedy, lacks morals, and becomes billigerent towards loved ones. The billigerance turns to verbal abuse, which then becomes the norm, and eventually that’s not enough to show their anger. Eventually they have to have a more vivid way to express anger and turn to physical abuse. So, no, it’s not just that her idea of “abuse” isn’t the same because she’s Christian. It’s that she, as had I, had hoped that her husband had finally seen the destruction of his abuse and the need to end his ways. Clearly she found that not to be the case, and as her divorce was going to come out, she decided to explain it ahead of time. Don’t you dare judge what you don’t understand!

    AJC – I think you just made Cormac’s point… “I know you are, but what am I?”

    Just how funny would this be to you all if Obama did this to a heckler? Turn the tables – you’d all be raging mad. This is the act of a tyrant, not a comedian, as funny as you think he is now. Just wait until you’re NOT on his side. Then what will he do with YOU?

    Wow… So the world will continue to see the heroics of Putin, and the idiocy of the US. Great news for us! (Sarc)

    yougottabekidding – You’re missing the point. I could care less about Megyn Kelly. She’s in for the drama and not for real news, and that I found out months ago when the truth of a story was out, but she was witch-hunting on the side of reactionary emotion, not news. Trump is the danger here – not just in this debate. Check his pattern of behavior over the years, and you can see all these points are clear and real. I didn’t see this debate and just arbitrarily decide Trump was a bully or narcissist. Besides, between Kelly and Trump, who’s running for president? That’s my point. Who needs him as our president?

    Inlightof – And, yes, I know what narcissism really is – I was married to one finally diagnosed with it after my divorce, and he STILL trying to get revenge! I know A LOT about narcissists and just how dangerous they are!

  • [4] August 8, 2015 at 11:47am

    Inlightofthings – You’re right. I should’ve used the word “pathological” instead of “psychotic.” Here are the telling signs, and why I believe Trump fits the bill and still a dangerous horse in the race… (Taken from, a website on neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry)
    Grandiose/malignant narcissism (characterized by anger, manipulativeness, thirst for power, exaggerated self importance)
    *has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
    *preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
    *believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
    *requires excessive admiration
    *has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
    *is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
    *lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
    *is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
    *shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

    I hardly think my reasoning is foolish, but those who praise him are.

    I don’t think you Trump cheerleaders get it. He’s a bully. Doesn’t matter if he’s politically correct or not, he’s a bully, and he’s going to come after anyone – ANYONE – who goes against him. You think Obama is a narcissist? Trump is the classic example of a psychotic narcissist! He cares about NO ONE and will destroy them openly – not just secretly, then say it’s just because he’s not politicially correct. He has a temper that is red hot and ready to be enflamed at the slightest offense. He is DANGEROUS!!! He will plow anyone down who gets in his way. Seriously, if you think Obama is the anti-Christ, Trump is even scarier! GET A CLUE, PEOPLE!!! You think he’s funny now, but you’ll see that rage the more people come after him – and realize – he only cares for himself, and he’ll do what he needs to do to get his revenge. It’s not about America – it’s about him!

    This isn’t just about the movie, but pornograpy in general, and the danger it is to individuals and their families. It destroyed my first marriage because my ex was in denial and becoming increasingly dangerous, hostile, and aggressive in his split-world realities – I no longer knew the man I was married to. His split world had finally converged into just one – anger to cover the lying, abuse to cover the anger and keep us under control. I managed to get me and the kids to a shelter, and he hasn’t seen them since we left (with court backing). Now tell me how it only affects the person who watches porn.

    @ModerateRepub – you’ve obviously never lived in Switzerland. They don’t have universal health care. They’re not part of the the EU. They have mandatory private care. Each person is required by law to be insured, but insurance is private. Employers do not provide insurance. It is completely up to each resident which company to use. But you can’t do anything, including move from one house to another, in Switzerland without proof of health insurance. Our insurance was about $600/month for a family of five with a $5’000 deductible. And I still had to share a room with two other women after giving birth, as well as a single bathroom with seven other women. Trust me… NO UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE IN SWITZERLAND!!!

    It’s not just a matter of dying with dignity, or dying to avoid our own suffering. We do have a purpose in life until our dying breath, even if that means others have to take care of us. How much do we, as family, change for the better by serving our loved ones til God takes them home? It’s not just about “woe is me.” God wants us to serve others in their times of need.

    Actually, the one word that absolutely makes my skin crawl whenever I hear it on the news – ever since Bill Clinton took us through his media circus – is “unprecedented.” Drives me NUTS!!!

    In Europe people it horse meat all the time. You can buy it in the grocery store. They swear by it for making the your bone marrow and joints healthier.

  • December 13, 2013 at 6:01pm

    The product, yes. The title for this article, no. The word “slick” combined with “port-a-potty” did not bring the same picture into my mind as these impressive outhouses.

    Then explain this: “11 And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend…” (Exodus 33:11)
    ..and this…
    “And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.” (Exodus 24:11)
    …and this…
    “30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” (Genesis 32:30)

    ..and this..
    “22 And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.” (Judges 13:22) – Samson’s parents, by the way.

    There’s a whole list in the Bible of people who have seen God and lived. Perhaps you should take the translation – no man hath seen God at any time “in the flesh”
    You seem to know the scriptures – remember the mount of transfiguration? Peter, James and John saw Jesus transfigured, Moses and Elias, AND heard the voice of God testify that Jesus was His son, and they lived. (Matt 17:1-9) But they were transfigured in order to do so. Hence, the name Mount Transfiguration.

    Just lost my health insurance. It’s not even offered for me AT ALL anymore. If I want a plan with a similar premium – with a totally different company because mine isn’t offered to me anymore, I have to have an $11,000 deductible!!! I’m SO glad Obama is in control!

  • November 3, 2013 at 10:14am

    My ex-husband says the same thing – except that he was pro-Hitler.

  • October 24, 2013 at 10:37pm

    Exactly – I’ll believe it when I hear it, and even doubtfully then, as the media re-arranged the words recorded with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.
