Not really a sports fan… While I am aware of Mr. Barkley and a few of his accomplishments I had no particular opinion of him. I know he is a great basketball player-Perhaps that is overshadowed by his intelligence, thoughtfulness and courage. Mr. Barkley-count this humble aircraft mechanic as a fan…

Separating families? I would never suggest that. Take your kids with them. Since they will likely follow your example for your respect of the law and consideration for others-You should take them with you. Republicans!!!! If any of you are listening The fact that you won the senate and kept the majority in congress is definitely a referendum on immigration. Grow a spine, get rid of Boehner, and take the hardest possible line on illegal immigration. DEPORT NOW! and I mean every illegal regardless of race, canadians, irish, whatever. The voters are smart enough to see your actions and it will pay dividends for your party in the future. these illegal “activists” should have been arrested on the spot and deported. an illegal interfering with the legal system should be considered social espionage. I will not take these idiots trying to turn this country into the 3rd world toilet they come from.

Alright-I’m a white dude. I cant jump…I cant dance…so yeah-I am the stereo type. But I am inspired by you-your faith, and your courage. I havent bought a rap/hip hop album since will smith/run dmc..But I will put my money where my mouth is-If you produce an album without cursing, without demeaning women, and reflecting the values that you showed tonight. Minister with your talent. I will not only buy the album for myself-but also as a gift for relatives and friends. You have the power to promote hope. Love ya Brother!

I’m 6ft 228 lbs and the passing of Stapelton brought me to tears. Not feeling so big and tough now. I was a kid in the 70′s and watching that show was one of the things that brought our family together. You will be missed

think strategically and not tacticall and we can avoid violence and shed light on the corruption that has taken hold of our government and our monetary system. The left would love to portray us as gun wielding nut jobs. The goal should be the prosecution of ALL of those that have committed TREASON by subverting the laws and rights of the people set forth in the constitution. Whether they be in the government, the media or the military. Don’t think that the government is not prepared for civil uprisings. Military exercises began in the 1950′s and much of our present lack of civil rights and privacy can be attributed to a military exercise from the 1980′s called REX 84. That exercise showed the military that they must be allowed to operate without Constitutional restraint and it brought us entities like FEMA which operate in times of emergency without congressional oversight. Bolstered by NDAA, your rights and possessions can be seized with little chance for so much as a day in court. They can detain you for mere suspicion. As far as fighting for your freedoms, I submit that that ship may have already sailed. It may be time to consider leaving the country-like many did at when they recognized the rise of fascism in their own countries-like germany, italy, Russia, China, Korea, Cambodia…. Governments are directly responsible for the murders of more than 150 million people in the 20th century. And if you think it cant happen here, your deluded.

I’m with LKETCHUM on this.. Prudence is the important thing here. The left would love to portray us as trigger happy gun weilding anti government loons. It is important to not be too reactionary. Even though we outnumber government goons more than 10 to 1 (even more when you consider that many in our military are actually patriots and realize their oath to the Constitution). But tactics with the military and government are more strategic than tactical. If their is an uprising in one area, their would undoubtedly be an overwhelming response to any attempted uprising and would demoralize patriots to some degree (piss others off). It is important to organize with other like minded patriots and think more strategically. The big picture of the machine you face is more than just OUR military. It is also the other nations and NATO who will stand with the government and NOT the American people. Thinking strategically may avoid violence, remove the crooks from government and shed light on corruption. If restoration of the constitution is the goal then I am with you. But we should also think about prosecution of the individuals who have subverted the law and committed treason. Restoration of personal and property rights should be paramount, along with an end to an immoral tax code that is Constitutionally illegal.
Are there nothing but wimpering idiots on here? The left is ALREADY portraying anyone who wants their freedom back as racist, lunatic, bible thumping, gun nut terrorists.
What more could they possibly call us??!!

I agree. Socialists/communists have a perfect record for committing genocide anywhere that it has been used as the form of government. In our case-it seems to be the best way to bring a “free” country to its knees. Fabian socialists don’t plan for the next election-they plan lifetimes ahead. So until we get control of educating our kids away from socialists, we cannot hope to be a beacon of hope for other people around the world.

It’s actually good to see many Americans getting their heads up to look around at the ‘real’ landscape in America. Political and social… I submit that 84% of people get along pretty well with people of different races or cultures. And America is unique amoung the other countries at how little race plays in our daily lives. What I’m saying is that 84% is very good when compared to the divisiveness (is that a word?) that exists elsewhere in the world. There will always be people who cannot get along with other people-these are what I call the socially irresponsible-they cannot take responsibilty, but they are always there to take credit when it belongs to someone else. Lets say there are 8% on the left and 8% on the right and the rest of us normal people who would much prefer to live our lives without the intrusion of these idiots (the 84%). The only thing that gives these people any cohesive grip on us is the deft use of the media to blow the wind of opinion their way-we are caught in the middle. Most people you’ll ask think there are only two parties active in the U.S.-Republican and Democrat. Ask your friends and you start to see the ignorance of the real political landscape in America-There are many parties at work-the socialists are the ones that scare me the most. Even if Mitt Romney wins-the scary thing here is that the race was even close. after the election-continue to learn and engage the people who are blinded by the “merits” of socialism.Socialism=genocide.

Amen-Romney jumped at the chance to distance himself from conservatives and the tea party including trying to change the rules for the caucuses for the next time he runs-miracle ala Karl Rove.

I am starting to warm up to mitt. I think thats the kind of thing I would do. As long as he is serious about the job at hand-should he win. I hope in the next 4 years we can all have more fun. And mitt, if you read this, I only ask one thing. Return the wealth to the people-end the FED!!!
Absolutely. Right now is the silly season. No one is really paying attention, except for us. The main crowd, left and right, are barely paying attention.

Ya know, it really is starting to irritate me that this so called consevative news outlet is no better than the msm trash it supposedly “competes” with. I have noticed that ron paul continually gets ignored, omited and for all intensive puroses by the msm. No real investigations of faulty poll numbers, when ron paul does well-i guess I could expect the left wingers to be silent. Particularly since its unlikly they will find some floosey to say she had an affair withth him. They had to go back 22 years to find something in a newsletter to twist into a statement of racism that has even the naacp scratching heads. But the blaze is different right? Search the stories, and even on the blaze, mention of paul is fractional to the other candidates. And then, when you rail on tv about the hypocracy of the media and how proud hitler would have been with their use of propoganda. You can still publish photos of your candidate (santorum) with an at ease almost serene smile-contrasting sharply with the caught between wrds almost hapless/crazy expression of paul. I expect that from them… You can definately afford to live without the$9.99 per month I spend on gbtv. Up yours blaze!

hopefully the next pres will revive the program like Reagan did with the B1…. Hey guess what guys-looks like I’m voting for a “nut” in the election. After seeing that most of the left wing blogs and cnn characterize RP as a nut-it makes it really easy to ID the trolls on this site. after reading Paul’s stance on foreign policy-which is Constitutionally legal (can’t say that about what we do now) but no where near the “isolationist” rhetoric that it was characterized as by the so called news organizations. While I might not agree with Paul on many things-I can say we see eye to eye at least 90% of the time. And he has been consistant-no matter who he is in front of-his story doesnt change-cant say that about newt, barry or mitt. If your dismissing Paul without at least going to his website or watching him speak about the issues then I can’t help. But 92% of Americans distrust the government-And I dont think voting for the same people-in-a-different skin works for me. God Bless America!

Maybe the next pres will revive the program like Reagan did with the B1…

Ok. Yes, the F35 is an awesome fighter built with tech that currently surpasses anything other countries can put in the air. But when the F15 debuted in the 70′s, it was decades ahead of anything that any other country could put in the air (and no-I am am not just talking about airframe performance-but also radar, weapons and avionics). And yes, the F14 was right there with it. While some of the capabilities of this fighter are very impressive-I dont believe this is the quantum leap in tech that the F15 was. The F15 is more than 700mph faster and just as manueverable. The F22 was the F15 replacement-It was the leap ahead in technology that should have kept us in air dominance for at least the next 30 years. But Obama cancelled the F22-and thats after we spent all the money to develope it and we built a few…maybe that will give our enemies a little “breathing room” to develop their tech. Seems to me that the jobs and skills this country should value most are in the space and aero industry. But Obama defunded NASA too…Hmmm

Unfortunately I believe the comparison to nazis is becoming more true by the momont. Many of our reps, both republican and democrat, passed the law that allows ordinary citizens to be rounded up for being suspected of being a terrorist. And their definition of what a terrorist is exceedingly broad. Just think of some of your posts on this website… I know I have said on many occasions, that where ever and whenever communism/socialism is instituted as the form of government, genocide is always used to “tame” the population. That is not me talking crazy, thats a historical fact. Their pieces are about the board. Now there are calls for staffing the detention centers that everybody said didnt exist… The question is what will we do about it? Stand together, or fall alone. Dont think it can happen here? Ask any jew that chose to stay in germany in,1937. Or ask any family member of the nearly 28 million russians that disappeared under stalin. I ask all of you, is it too late?

Property ownership is a joke. For more than 100 years there has been a steady erosion in property rights. Most of the federal code deals with property siezure by the government. I would say count all the ways and situations in the federal code that entitle the government to sieze your land. But its estim tated that it would take decades just to read the code-more than 25,000 pages. How is ignorance of the law not an excuse? My point is: if they can take it-and you cant defend it-it was never yours in the first place. So lets call it what it is:a tax farm
And what counts as "law-abiding"? Does it simply mean, one who abides by whatever edicts the parasitic control freaks in Washington spew forth? Hitler's SS were "law-abiding officers."
"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal." [Martin Luther King, Jr.]

I submit that you are correct-but how long has it been since ‘morality’ has been taught in this country?
October 29, 2011 at 9:46am
or communism-which is most subject to corruption for the benefit of the elite. And will not hesitate to cull the population to hold onto power.
That being said-I don’t endorse violence. The government is fully prepared for a violent uprising and will meet force with force. The military excercise “REX 84″ which was used to pass legislation that allowed for the Constitution of the United States to be set aside in the event of a violent uprising in America. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land-which protects citizens against the use of military force by “our” government. If it is set aside which crazy politician will oder the use of deadly force for the continuation of the government. Violence is not ok…But read the headlines-the underlying powers that be are doing everything they can to foment a violent uprising-whether it is a race war, a class war, or idealogical. we have drifted from the principles of the founding fathers, who, they themselves were forced to resort to violence. It IS the most important thing our generation MUST do is to restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land…
