    Scrooples; if there were turtles on my lawn my dog would eat them, just like he eats all the other small game, long before (dirty) Harry Reid would even know they were there to protect. ;)

    Yep. I have the deed to my property locked in a safe that says we own this land free and clear. But every year when I write that property tax check out I’m reminded that it’s not really mine… sad. I don’t mind paying for services I actually use (fire coverage, police coverage, etc) but it’s all the other stuff that get’s me.

    The only thing I would challenge you on jrcherron is the mom part. I think one parent should stay home to raise the kids and it doesn’t matter which one. If the mother can make a better living (ie: if she has a better education and can obtain a higher paying job than the husband) then I see no problem with a stay at home father. Just as long as one parent is in the home raising the kids.

    Outside of that though – you’ve got my vote 100% because we are in the same boat as you. We took the lesser traveled path today. We opted for the older car, older clothes, hand me downs, and pinching more pennies instead of sending our kids to places like this so that both of us could go out and chase the dollar. But to each their own I say. ;)

    While Obama violates other countries air spaces with drones… do as I say not as I do. Got it.

    I’m still undecided who to support. Rand is my guy but I know Rand probably isn’t going to win so I’m looking at the others to see who has the best chance. Carson was on that small list of someone I might support… until now. Bye, bye Carson. You just lost my support.

    One of my favorite hangouts (read: trolling grounds) on Facebook is The Daily Beast page. What a bunch of nutcases over there. I love to get them going. (which is not hard to do, believe me) As a counter argument to this, I would say that anyone who supports TDB is supporting idiocy, lunacy, bigotry, and just flat out animal excrement reporting. But that’s just me. ;)

    crisnick; that’s one of those fine line gray areas with me too. On one hand, being staunchly pro-life, I agree with you. I believe life begins at conception. But on the other hand I’m also a realist, a father, and I’ve been through the ultrasounds and witnessed pregnancies… before the detection of the fetal heartbeat is a bit of a gray area with me. (that’s just a personal opinion – one that will probably get me some down votes here) These are just embryos and I can see making the argument to discard them as cells. I’ll still give you a thumbs up though for the good call on it. ;)

    Oh dear… scrappy you might want to educate yourself before you start calling names. SoWhat is correct. “embryos” are already fertilized with his sperm. Hence, the father has every right to say what happens to them. But the point is moot anyways because she signed a legally binding agreement, prior to storing the embryos, stating that if they divorce the embryos are to be destroyed. (this is all stated in the article) So the agreement kind of trumps the whole ‘her rights’ thing don’t ya think?

    “Lee had argued that she had a right to change the agreement, and that she had a right to procreate.”

    You have a right to procreate… but a deal is a deal sweetie. If you signed on the dotted line then I’m sorry but you have to abide by the terms of the agreement. You knew what you were getting into before you signed the paperwork.

    [[Hollande said he wants a “large coalition” to work together against the Muslim extremists associated with the IS, an organization he said ”commits massacres” in the Mideast.]]

    I don’t mean to sound like the proverbial party pooper here but I still remember when they snubbed their noses at us over Iraq… just saying.

    Yes thank you, I was just going to point this out. Far too many writers for the news today are making this mistake. As a hobby naval history buff this makes me roll my eyes each time I see it. -_-

    I have to go with Cavallo on this one too. I wax and waned as well in my life. I know many others who did the same. I was raised Catholic. We were in church (almost) every Sunday growing up. We took part in just about everything you can imagine within the church also. (heck I was even an alter boy for many years) But I went away from it in my later teens, 20s, and early 30s. Once I got married and had children I recognized that the structure and teachings that I gained through that in my early life helped form who I am today… even if I don’t always agree with some of the rigid thinking. So I made it a point to send my kids to private Catholic school just because I want them to have that same foundation I was given in life. Once they are old enough then they too can make up their own minds like I did and take their own path. So I’m with Cavallo. The structure and the guidance still has a place in today’s world. Even if it might seem silly or archaic to some. Just my two cents worth.

    They’re getting smart with their ads and it’s not really TheBlaze’s fault I don’t think. (that would be whoever runs the advertisements they partner with) If you watch quickly the ad in the top right corner that scrolls it plays a short video in between scrolling… if you are fast enough you can catch it with Adblock and block it. Otherwise until you do it’s going to give you a headache. This might be your problem.

    I don’t mind ads. I can take the picture ones just fine. But the moment they started introducing the video and sound ones… and slowing down my browsing experience was when I started blocking them. Having a business online I feel badly for having to block their ads because it does take money out of their pockets but they have to learn that there has to be a balance. You can’t piss your visitors off every time they visit your site or you aren’t going to make any money at all… no matter how good your content is.

    But try catching that little bugger up in the top right corner… I know it took me several tries before I got it but once I did everything was smooth sailing again. It only flashes on for a second or two before it stops.

    I’m going to get a whole bunch of down votes for this, I know… prostitution is a dirty business (pardon the pun). I don’t agree with it and I’ve never had to take part in it. But sex for goods is never going to go away. You’re just deluding yourself if you think you can get rid of it. Here’s my more libertarian side coming out again. Personally I say legalize it, regulate it, put it out of sight and out of mind, so to speak, in an establishment instead of prostitutes walking the streets at all hours of the night. As much as we’d like to… can’t legislate morality folks. That can only be done through education and through the private family structure. Anyways… let the down-voting begin. ;)

    sas; I disagree. I use various measurement tools on a daily basis, including your standard tape measure, for my day job. And even I say it’s more than 3 inches just by looking at it. Perhaps you should learn to measure… just saying.

    Apples and oranges. No one is calling for a person to “do donuts” in the wilderness or intentionally destroy it through reckless means such as that. It certainly won’t hurt anything to drive a truck and some machinery out there to move some fossils. Then drive them out again. It won’t do any more damage than a strong storm would do. Mother nature would erase the tracks left by the vehicles and all would be perfect and well again.

    Good grief. It’s people like you that are the problem here… you have to make things infinitely more complicated than they have to be for no other reason other than to make yourself feel better.

    I’m on the fence on this one folks even though I support Rubio on several points. (even though he is not ‘my guy’ on many issues) On one hand I kind of have to agree here. As a sitting Senator he has a duty to first do his job… then campaign for his next one. That goes for anyone of any party.

    I understand his reasoning but no position should be neglected or used as a “stepping stone” to the next level up. Sadly I think far too many politicians treat their seats as just another step in their careers to riches and/or fame.

    “…’500 Bottles of Wine Every Second’…”

    I bet every soccer mom just clicked on that headline… and are crying about the wasted wine. ;) (kidding!)

  • [2] October 22, 2015 at 3:41pm

    I can’t believe someone gave you a thumbs down for that one… good grief. I always thought that line was funny. ;)
