Are you speaking of blood tests for the purposes of drug screening? If so, that's OK but not practical. Every pilot would have to be screened for almost every flight. Besides, blood tests won't show positive for crazy. Just sayin'.

The Palestinians are stateless because they do not want a state. They make up about 15% of Israel’s population, and as a group generally live peacefully and lawfully, and many of them prosper. They also have some political influence in the government of Israel. But other than that, Jordan has about a million languishing in a refugee camp that they will not let out into the general population. And all of the other Muslim countries are more than happy to leave them there where they have been since they left Israel in 1948. There will never be peace between the militants and Israel. There is no point to the discussion.

First of all, middle school kids are just plain mean, mostly with out the intention to be so. Second, to change conduct the offender needs to suffer a significant emotional event as a consequence, and a major embarassment on facebook is a great start. Physical hard work and lots of it is a good follow-up. And the very public apology, is an excellent lesson in social responsibility. Personally, I would have had him cleaning up the school before classes every school day for an hour before classes began.

It never ceases to amaze me that the opponents of voter ID are so afraid they will lose a legal election. They are in effect saying they can not win without illegal votes. Any one of voting age can not live a normal life without legit government issued photo ID. You cannot buy booze. You cannot enter government buildings to get welfare or social security, you cannot fly on an airplane. you cannot get a hotel room, you cannot drive, you cannot get a job, you cannot do much of the many things necessary to live in this country. It is not difficult to get the ID either.

Speed limiting already exists. It’s called cruise control. Distracted driving is already a paramount danger with makeup, electric shavers, social media, cell phones, on board TV & radio, and children cutting up in the seats. Now having to deal with another set and forget speed limit to forget about and not get performance when you need it is nuts.

Participating fathers are very important in the life of girls and boys. The father that lives in the home but is gone all day and late into the evening just isn’t as far as the kids are concerned. That absence is mostly work related. It is found among clergy and soldiers most often, and most of the rest of them are workaholics or go to the bar for the evening. It is very hard to support a family and be active with that family. Now that I have grandchildren, my children appreciate what I did as a father, and I was gone a lot, but I spent as much time as I could with my children, and my homemaker wife.
They have. Congress makes the laws regarding who is a citizen upon birth when the child is not born in the US: "Persons not born in the United States acquire citizenship by birth only as provided by Acts of Congress." Miller v. Albright

Real violence on prime time TV in California and they cut away and apologize. It goes right along with the rest of broadcast TV programming. What are they apologizing for? Clearly there were too few details of the story to get a real picture of who the civilian really is, and why he thought he could get away with criminal conduct. Maybe it is our outlaw president encouraging lawlessness around this country.

They want to restrict 5.56 green tip because there is a brass slug in the boat tail of the bronze bullet that gives it a little extra punch. 99% of all civilian fired green tip hits a backstop on the gun range. The other 1% ends up in the woods. It’s not a problem. It will penetrate some body armor, but it is a rifle round and a lot of rifle rounds will penetrate body armor that are just FMJ, or solid bronze (since lead is all but outlawed). There is no real reason to restrict green tip. It’s just another target round to most of us that shoot 5.56.
Presbyterian Church (USA) is about to step off the edge and fall right out of the Christian faith. They have already had a large number of individual churches withdraw, as in leave. It is shrinking as it is and any more progressive liberal relativism will be the end of it. That would be a fine message to main line protestant churches. Reform and return to the basics.

Nice move on the senator’s part. The EPA can not predict the weather for 10 days from now, so what are they thinking when the make predictions for 20 years from now. None, absolutely none of the predictions from the time of the Bush presidency have come to fruition. They were all lies. Temperature changes have not happened other than the usual 33 year cycles of up and down.

Now would be a wonderful time to leave the debt ceiling alone. To just do nothing about it. Somewhere sometime it just has to happen and now is as good as any to start.

Just throw them out in the yard. It is amazingly hard to find keys in grass if you did not see them land.
I had a friend who was shot dead after he did that, he threw the keys into a hedgerow. He was hit four times center mass.

I had a very similar event. The garage door was open with a truck backed up to it. I parked my big van in front of the truck having pushed the truck back a few inches. Then I took the keys out of my van and out of the truck on my way into the garage, where I keep two 30″ swords. There were 3 of them. I stuck a sword through each one as they came out to the garage, while I was calling 911. Two tried to fight, and got cut badly several times. One later died of blood loss.
I'll bet your neighborhood is safer! You're lucky they weren't packing guns.
Good job Mr. H...you were also lucky neither one had a firearm!
retired cop say he would much rather face a gun then a sword.

Hillary Clinton using personal email as Secretary of State is just one more of her out-of-bounds arrogance, and elitism. It is her personality. It is her ideology. It is her incompetent conduct. It is her disqualification for holding public elected office.

He should investigate incorrect a civil rights suit. Or he can wait a year and get one if the governor signs the bill.

Some people are really living in lala land. It’s best to leave them to their misery.
