    The answer is simple, but the solution is complicated. Get the government out of marriage. Marriage is a religious institution and the government shouldn’t be involved in it. If you want benefits everyone married should also apply for a “civil union” for government purposes, and those who want to get “married” if the religion they are in allows gay marriage, then fine. if not choose one that does. But any couple of any sex is eligible for a license for a civil union. Change all the laws, change the tax code, etc. That is the difficult part, to separate the 2. Then everyone has equal rights yet marriage is reserved for those who believe it should be what their religion defines it as.

    well, the protesters aren’t “professionals” or they wouldn’t be able to be out there all day every day, they would actually have an employer (other than receiving free Obama money and phones and such) to be responsible for. The only way to get “fired” for that is to actually get a job and have social responsibility.

    you mean the 360 bills passed in the house that Harry Reid won’t even bring up in the senate, that lack of compromise? Or are you talking about all the bills introduced in the Senate that Prince Harry won’t allow any republican amendments on, is that your lack of republican compromise?

    And if you think of Obama has nothing to do with Gay marriage, in all these federal decisions allowing it, why don’t you look into who appointed the judges, those voting for it are about 90% Obama/Clinton appointees

    The cool thing about this is it is just one more extreme environment showing that life finds a way to exist in so many different conditions that “We are not alone” in the universe is a virtual certainty. Whether we will ever met other intelligent life different question, but certainly is out there somewhere, probably in many, many places. Just basic life in general I am sure we will find in the next 5 years on the various probe missions going on right now to different planets, moons and comets.

    So just keep adding them to the list of broken laws and broken constitution this regime does and be saddened because it doesn’t really matter. No one who can will take any action against them

    This is the issue people aren’t considering about Obama’s legacy and Harry Reid’s changing the senate rules to get appointments to no longer be filibustered. The lifetime appointment of so many radical progressive judges will continue moving the agenda left for decades to come no matter how conservative the legislative and executive branches become.

    Personally, my view is an extreme one although I don’t understand why it should be. I think many read the 2nd amendment wrong. The government should not be allowed to posses any weapons that the general population is not allowed to possess. If the government can possess a weapon even something as bad as nuclear weaponry then the general population should be allowed to have it.

    Otherwise, there is no way a “well regulated militia” of any sort or any other combination of citizens will ever be able to overthrow an unjust and tyrannical government as we are allowed to do on Page 1 of the U.S. code as the declaration of independence is part of the official code of federal laws.

    If Nancy Pelosi and her ilk would stop worrying about endangered tadpoles rather than their constituents, then there would be plenty of water flowing through the state to central valley farmers, many low level lakes, etc. The people out here are simply insane

    You are supposed to be able to think critically enough to be able to form your own opinion. If you want an article to give you the answer to what opinion you should have, you should go read HuffPo

    What? The Gentle Giant beat up the cop before the shooting? How is that possible? He is so gentle and was just meandering along, thinking about starting college!

    A film that cost 2 million to make and raked in 67 million is hugely successful. Maybe “monumentally popular” may not fit your criteria, but you don’t compare this film vs. all films of the year, but rather this films vs. other films in this genre. That is what qualifies it as being monumentally popular.

    Yea, my bad. Distracted posting…

    Amazing how he can keep saying with a straight face how Americans will seek justice for any Americans killed anywhere in the world. Benghazi anyone?

    Please, please, please! very unlikely, but what a great message that would send, especially in a state with someone like Bernie Sanders!

    was it ever confirmed that he fired Wilcow? I have seen nothing other than they parted ways amicably because Wilcow wanted to do other things including more family time. I doubt anyone outside the very inner circle will know what happened and why he left.

    I think you all aren’t getting his message. He isn’t preaching unity at all. It is about tolerance. Agree to disagree, but don’t make it so no conversation can be had or we are surely in a “cold civil war” right now. He is simply trying to defuse that and come up with a way to hold a discussion where ideas can be discussed and people who don’t get it can be made to understand the truth of it, where in today’s split society, no conversation can be had at all. If you cannot even talk, then you end up like Israel/Hamas, there is no civil solution. The path we are currently on will lead to a very hot war, and those in power can stamp us into the earth as we cannot carry the arms they do. He is coming at it from a different direction to try and establish some common ground at all so that ANY conversation can begin rather than just pointing fingers, hating, yelling at each other happens until both throw up their hands and say “I am going to destroy you before you destroy me”

    well said! Not sure it doesn’t exist anymore, but in Glenn’s terminology we are certainly “running out of exits” to return it to the path of greatness

    wow, soy finally said one thing I agree with, although it isn’t his whole post, just the last sentence. It is frustrating that theblaze.com keeps crashing my IE browse and have to restart it in windows 8 multiple times while reading

    the more that is being released, the more obvious it seems what happened. While I hate to try it here, and still more to come out, at this point it seems like:
    1) The cop stopped the “Gentle Giant” for blocking traffic in middle of street, wanted him to move to side
    2) The cop had no idea he had just robbed store
    3) Ferguson had no idea that the cop pulling him over had no idea he robed the store and it was just a please move over don’t block the road
    4) Ferguson likely was sure the cop was responding to the robbery and so not sure what was going to happen, became aggressive, then tried to get away
    5) Then decided better to not run but to stop the cop
    6) Ferguson dropped as he wouldn’t stop charging
