    Looking for who the GOP establishment that keeps screwing us is going to back in the primary. Here’s your sign.

    I have lived in both of these towns. Years ago when I was 19. Comparing them is like apples and oranges. Ridgefield is more rural and a country setting. Where as Bridgeport is completely city. Looking at some of the demographic numbers I can only assume hispanic is our term for Brazilian. Unless it has changed that much. Bridgeport had a large Brazilian population. I lived in bridgeport first then moved to ridgefield. Bridgeport isn’t very big but you wouldn’t know you left it as you drove along because city after city flow one right into another.

    So if all Americans decide to remove all things that anyone finds offensive or disparaging to their race, gender, religion or financial status will that finally fix the flaws in human beings? Because that is what the arguments seems to be when it comes to banning inanimate objects or words that anyone decides offends them and how they define it’s symbolism. From confederate flags to crosses or The Redskins. It’s an intellectually dishonest way to address our flaws and how we as a society can be better to one another. That is really the issue, not the many different things that flag symbolizes to different people.

    Another thought…shouldn’t they go after the one receiving the payments for tax evasion? If not, is it because they actually disclosed to the IRS this as income? If there was wrong doing that is criminal then go after for him for that. This just shows how anyone can be targeted and a law can be twisted and used to take them down.

    So basically he did something bad to this person…he agreed to pay them 3.5 mil in compensation and it is consider structuring and evading the IRS because he did it in increments of less than 10,000. Had this been something civil handled between their lawyers as a 3.5 mil settlement it would be different? It’s not that I don’t get he could be a total dirt bag. But my take away of this is… there is legal way to pay someone off and your golden. And there is an illegal way that involves the FBI and IRS.

    If my agreeing with the death penalty was simply based off of biblical principles then I would have a different response. As of now I don’t agree with the death penalty because I don’t believe in the integrity of our entire legal system. Until that changes I will not be able to support a death penalty even for those I believe are guilty and for whom it should/could apply. I would be happy to elaborate even further on multiple points regarding the degradation of our legal system if something specific is asked of my thoughts regarding my comment.

    I was just reading a report from TPNN that said “According to a German media site, it is speculated that the 28 year old copilot who crashed a Germanwings flight this week had converted to Islam. Andreas Lubitz had stayed for a time in Bremen, home of the radical mosque, Masjidu-l-Furqan, where he trained at the Lufthansa Flight Training School.” Will be watching to see if this is confirm-able.

    Just heard there is a rather large police presence in the town of Orange and OCH school area because of rumors of rioting.

    I have been a huge fan of AC/DC since I was 16. I have met them and went on the road to a couple of shows. Sorry Billy but your way off base on this one. From what I understand since Bon Scott died of alcohol poisoning, the original lead singer, all the excess partying went out the window. The horns have been an icon of the song Highway to hell since the albums first tour. The song has nothing to do with worshiping the devil nor the wearing of the horns. Sorry but your reaching real hard to find something in it that isn’t there.

    It’s the flash. Especially since the one update months back to adobe flash. I stopped even trying to visit the page on a computer browser. Once I realized it was something with flash I went into my browser setting and made it so that I can choose to activate it while browsing if I want to watch a video. It has helped stop this problem for me on more than just The Blaze web site.
    For The Blaze IT it’s something in the flash dude :p

    Clearly an even bigger picture is being overlooked in this whole conversation. What in the heck would they do if more than one assailant attacked in coordination? How many would die or be injured and if they don’t have a viable plan to address a single shooter what if there were more? The vulnerability of a military base to something like this is just crazy! Clearly leaders have their heads up their butts and priorities in the wrong place if you can’t even figure out how to take highly trained people in weaponry and trust them with a plan to be armed to protect your base from even a single shooter!

    Right? Next it will be, that is so unfrair of him to flaunt our right to bear arms. He is just trying to make others feel inferior. What a bully. Being white he is also probably racist too. :p

    Pretty sure my ex-sister-in-law has a high IQ to go along with her 4 masters degrees. But that didn’t help her much when she couldn’t figure out how to get from Indiana to Texas. The phone call I got with her in tears frantic because her written directions had one wrong turn and she didn’t know what to do made my lack of a single masters degree and my basic common sense very valuable to me.

    We Virginians think alike :p

    I tend to try and make a bit simpler when I think of where the unemployment number is. We have rough 318 million people in the country and 92 million of them are not working. Even if you included children and the retired and elderly that is almost 1/3 of the country out of work.

    Al-awalki’s son…. I do believe.

    The disturbing part is that the FBI doesn’t give a reason and doesn’t have too. This the second one on a similar company and yet no charges or reason have been given. At least that is what I got from the story. Kind of like the Gibson Guitar thing.

    “or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort” That would be Al Quida, Muslim Brotherhood and probably some more with out doubt in my mind.

    Just got home from seeing the movie….. wow it’s still hitting me. It’s like you don’t get to feel everything until it’s over and all I did was watch it. I can’t imagine having been the one to live through it. I feel so compelled to respond to comments directed to my post. I believe that when Marcus said to Clapper, “We never felt like we were losing until we were actually dead.” says it all. That quote applies, not just when fighting a war… but living life itself. These men who trained to be soldiers, were that way to begin with or they never would have become the soldiers they were/are. If everyone fought that hard to actually live life and push themselves to try to survive anything that could or does come their way… how amazing would that be. What someone like Marcus strives for isn’t just about winning a fight in a war. It’s simple yet deeper than the debate that we could get into over the politics of it or the “value” of what is or is not achieved and at what cost. Simply… these men have already won an individual victory that many can’t fathom let alone achieve. It’s a big picture in the peripheral of my mind and “I get it”, I just don’t know if I can articulate it. Mostly I am thankful for Marcus telling this story so that I could “get it”. I am thankful for what I have learned because it will change me.
