    Was hoping to wake up to this news today. I’m still shocked that the House finally stopped caving.

    Exactly. This is not a new development. I heard Glenn say the same thing about gay marriage while on Fox, so anyone who thinks this is reinventing himself probably hasn’t been watching for long. He doesn’t support gay marriage. He supports the government not being in control of marriage.
    I agree with his stance and am grateful for it because anything else would have been hypocritical given his other views. I can respect someone who disagrees with me, but not a hypocrite.

    Have already commented on SAPD’s fb page. Looks like I wasn’t the only one with that idea. I will happily donate some $ for these guys’ legal fees if they need it.

    I cancelled DTV several months ago and just paid the early cancellation fee. With the money I saved switching to Roku and an HD antenna, it more than made up for the penalty fee. I pay about $25/month for Roku subscriptions (including The Blaze, of course), and I was paying almost $110/mo. for DTV.

    Me, either. Can’t stand to see innocent creatures suffer. I just moved to an area where, in general, people just do not take good care of their pets. They don’t contain them, don’t spay/neuter them, don’t get them medical care when they need it. In contrast, I just paid for my cat to have her second oral surgery and puree food for her every day while healing. They think I’m the crazy one, and I think they’re irresponsible.

    I find it funny that he falls so many times while running away. I always thought that was something that just happened in horror movies to increase the suspense and let the killer/predator get closer.

    I’m an agnostic and believe in evolution, but am always open to changing my mind. I just watched the whole video and heard nothing to make me doubt evolution.
    Science is self-correcting. The only way to correct a false scientific theory is with more science. Results must be reproducible and observable. One of my pet peeves that occurred throughout this video was the insistence that “observable” = “watching it happen in real-time before my very eyes”. That is totally false. Something that occurred millions of years ago can be observable.
    The ones asking this guy for the parts edited out are treating him like a scientist who conducted a sociology experiment. A scientist would know that results aren’t worth anything without revealing the methods, etc. of the experiment so that results can be duplicated by others. But obviously, he isn’t a scientist…just a guy who likes to ambush-interrogate people and then probably edit them to sound as dumb as possible.

    I agree, this looks like possible BPD. Sadly, the fear of abandonment leads to behaviors that turn it into a self-fulfilling prophecy, further reinforcing the fear. It’s a horrible disorder, and the pain people with BPD feel during instances like this is very, very real to them. They are stuck at the emotional level of a small child when the BPD is triggered like this and have the same lack of emotional control and vulnerability as a small child.

    Which is why it makes me really angry to see her husband display that vulnerability to the entire world. If it IS BPD, then it’s the moral equivalent of posting a youtube video of a 3-year-old freaking out and inviting people to ridicule her. I understand why he would record it for his own protection, but putting it on the internet was cruel. She needs help, and regardless of his choice to divorce, there’s no need to cause further emotional harm to someone who is obviously not well.

    Or then again, she could just be a spoiled brat. There are plenty of those around. But nah, I don’t think so.

    That’s what I thought, too. Heck, if I were 70, I’d probably go for that…if it wasn’t Geraldo. In an age where older women are flaunting themselves naked and makeup-less in magazines to prove the point that aging is natural and can still be beautiful, why should the chest of a 70-year-old guy cause disgust? Maybe the context is a little strange, but anyway… As a nurse who has seen a lot of elderly nudity, I can confidently say he’s got it going on for an old man and you should all be so lucky at that age.

    This is twisted. It’s not like they’re even banning all abortions – just those past 20 weeks when the babies can definitely FEEL the pain of their deaths. They’re protesting for the right to cause a baby pain and that’s all…because it’s not like 20 weeks isn’t plenty long enough to make this “choice” they’re so worried about protecting.

    My teenaged son, who has never been inundated with views on either side of the abortion issue, intuitively knows how wrong it is. During the safe sex talk, I think the following point had the biggest impact on him: When you have sex, you are saying that that woman has every quality you would want in the mother of your child. You are, in essence, trusting her with your child. You’ll have no choice over even the life or death of that child if she chooses to abort.

    He was horrified and tried to argue with it, saying he’d never “let” the abortion happen. I reiterated that he wouldn’t be able to stop it. It seemed to stick with him, making it one of those rare times when a parent actually feels heard by their teen lol.

    When I was 18, there was a murderer on the loose in my county. I don’t recall a lot of the details, but he used blue lights to pull over his victims. All the news stations were telling women not to pull over for police until you were in a safe, lighted area like a gas station with other people around.

    So, I was driving in a neighboring county and saw blue lights behind me for the first time in my life. I was on a lonely interstate, so I slowed way down and turned on my right turn signal to show I was going to pull off the exit. I stopped at the gas station right off of the exit.

    Even though I explained and even though the murders were national news, the officer gave me absolute hell for making him follow me that short distance. He threatened to arrest me and was just so mean in his demeanor that I ended up sobbing and distraught. In my defense, I was just a kid and my main ideas of how officers act came from the Andy Griffith show, so I don’t think I’d be such a blubbering mess nowadays.

    And what if Zimmerman had been a girl? Would that somehow make it more understandable for him to shoot a thug who attacked him? It shouldn’t.

    Great pic!

    My son was inspired by Ben Kasica, Skillet’s former lead guitarist, to learn to play guitar. I don’t think he’d have been interested otherwise, and that talent would have probably just laid fallow.

    This is my son’s absolute favorite band. They were his first rock and roll love at age 10-11. We’ve seen them probably a dozen times and met them a handful of times. Saw them in concert last month and will see them again in August. They are really nice, down-to-earth people. They let kiddo step onto their tour bus when he was about 12 and he’ll never forget it.
    I like the new concept album. Lots of lyrics that resonate with anyone who’s sick of the direction America has gone.

    OK, I’m really late to this party, but anyway… There is no law that all things that exist must have begun to exist. In fact, the law of conservation of energy means energy can’t be created or destroyed. All matter is energy. Of course, a law of physics isn’t definitive proof considering that our laws of physics may not have been in effect in the moment before the universe as we know it was born.

    Nothing does not exist and never did. Anyone who believes in an eternal deity agrees with me by necessity. I just may disagree with them regarding the deity part.

    And yes, random mutations that both increased genetic information and were beneficial have been observed. Yeast has adapted to new environments with gene duplication and mutation. There are other examples. As for macroevolution, well…creationists tend to have a different definition of that than most scientists. If you mean speciation (creation of a new species from an old one), yes it’s been observed.

    Whatever. I recently read the Ender’s Game series and fell in love with it. Devoured it within a day or two. There was no gay-bashing in it that I could see. I don’t need to like the guy to love his writing. Unless I find out he definitely plans to funnel all that money from the movie directly into a torture camp for the “reproductively dysfunctional”, I just don’t care enough to deprive myself of seeing it. I should avoid it anyway, though…they’re never as good as the books.

  • June 29, 2013 at 2:32pm

    How did these genes survive millions of years of natural selection? I believe in evolution, but to those of you who don’t…this guy should be part of your argument against it.

    Actions, not words.

    This happened sometimes at the hospital I used to work at. I always crossed my fingers that I would not get these patients because I knew I would refuse to draw the blood and was worried I’d be reprimanded or even lose my job for it.

    It’s unethical. My role of patient advocate takes priority. Wow, I guess that Nightingale Pledge really did mean something.

    1. Polygamy has been widespread throughout human history. Yes, monogamy is the traditional paradigm of a relationship here in the U.S, but the kind of relationship consenting adults choose to engage in is none of my business. It doesn’t undermine my rights for someone else to marry more than one person. Slippery slope? Let’s call it consistency.
    2. Straw man. We shouldn’t refrain from doing something that’s right just because “the future trajectory” could lead to another choice between right and wrong.
    3. Mostly agree. However, this is an ideal that is often not met for many reasons. I do believe that any gay couple who has a child and does not provide the child with strong, heavily-involved rolemodels of both sexes is doing the child a disservice.
    4. Ridiculous. Reminds me of an HOA worrying that what one homeowner does with their property will bring down the neighborhood. At least people agree to be under the HOA’s rule when they buy the house. I choose to opt out of the MOA, thanks. I’ll also build a treehouse anywhere on my property I darn well please.
    5. I disagree. And it would be a violation of my religious liberties to force me to live by your religious tenets. But the good news is you only need 10 righteous people to prevent the destruction of a city. Ah, but I almost forgot…”As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one:” Looks like we’re all screwed anyway. Let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.
