At the time of this post, my App Store has opened three times while reading this article. I don’t believe the bull@&$# about some contract preventing them from stopping these intrusions. Buy them out of the contract and end this stupidity. I would never buy any product presented to me in this despicable manner.

This is EXACTLY why it was a slap in the face to Conservatives that they passed an Omnibus that extended past January. Personally, I don’t think the GOP has any intention of really fighting Obama. They believe all the horse **** that the MSM flings.

I wish it was opening my App Store in search of something useful. Unfortunately, it is opening specifically for sponsor games and apps. The videos normally play on my brand new Ipad whereas my Ipad 2 had all kinds of issues with videos.
I expect this when I go to “seedy” websites, not when I go to a site for Conservative news and commentary. I can’t even link to stories posted here when I’m in political debates on a multitude of forums. Talk about dumb, they have marginalized themselves. Was the HuffPo lady a plant? Did she allow this travesty with the intent to make a mockery of the Blaze? Well played, well played.

STOP OPENING MY APP STORE ********!!!!!!!!
Between the slow loading because of ads, opening of App Store without my permission and awful proof reading, this site is becoming WORTHLESS. I’ve been a fan of Glenn for a decade and this is inexcusable.
Glenn has mentioned the web site himself on his radio show twice that I can remember. That last time was within the past few weeks. He's working on it, but it may take a few months. Some of us have guessed contracts might be involved.
I don't know what device you're using, but my first guess is your app store is opening because something on the page requires a plugin or update. Flash or Java plugin would be my first guess. Some of the embedded videos don't play on my phone, and your device might be looking for a player. I'd check my browser or system for an option that might be triggering that. See if there's an option for opening the App Store whenever a file is loaded that your device can't open.
Just remember a huffpo editor was brought it to head up theBlaze. That said, I'm looking for improvements relatively soon.

I just checked out their music(?) on youtube. They can keep that unlistenable garbage.

It’s amazing to me that I’ve never heard any politician even bring it up as a better solution. I assume you can build a refinery for the same or less than running an entire pipeline from the northern border to Texas. Find some desolate area in Montana near the border that has access to railway and roads and build the thing.
 January 9, 2015 at 10:37am
Wouldn’t it be wiser to take the $7 billion and build refineries near the Canadian border? When storms hit the refineries in Texas, we always see spikes in gas prices. I think it would be more prudent to hedge our losses with additional refinery options, especially in these days of terrorist attacks.
I agree but there would be a more furious opposition to said refineries and years of approvals to get through. Not to mention there is probably a lot of crony capitalism at work.
Logistics is your answer to the refinery idea. Most of the refined and unrefined product will be shipped elsewhere thus the need for the gulf location. Additionally it is a central hub. I'm sure weather and other obstacles play a role or the Canadians would build their own refinery if it were that easy.
There's also the problem of keeping all the oil warm in the oil pipeline while it is in transit. Its not really a problem to heat it for transit, but the construction of refineries having to keep everything warm is cost prohibitive. That's another reason while the refineries are in the south.

There is nothing on the video that the NFL and the Ravens didn’t already know about. They knew he knocked her out with a punch and the NFL imposed punishment for the action. But, bleeding heart libs and the MSM raised hell. So, they used the video release as a bull**** excuse to increase their punishment.
Apparently, knocking out your fiancé is worth a two week suspension, while a video of the knockout gets you fired and banned from the league.
Don't Care. Domestic Violence should be Zero Tolerance Lifetime Ban in Pro sport.

It will take less than a week for this guy to be re-signed by a General manger with a brain.
 September 8, 2014 at 2:35pm
Considering they just got their a$$e$ handed to them by Cincinnati, this is about as stupid as stupid gets. Pandering to the media over a personal matter, when the fiancee never pressed charges. In fact, she married him! It is precisely NOBODIES’S business but theirs.
Muy: I agree and I would add a joke. "Do you know what 386,431 abused women in America have in common? They don't LISTEN!"
Ha! A personal matter. Hilarious.
@ MuyLoco: The Fiancee does NOT have to " press charges " because the crime of Battery is a crime against the People / State of New Jersey - AND - there is a video of the violent deed. In most States, in domestic violence cases where one of the partys is battered, the OTHER party goes to JAIL - Every Time ! This is as it should be.
I agree with you, he should have not been cut from the team or banned from the NFL. They made a new rule after the fact and then found him guilty of the new rule. Other players have done this and more and are still playing for the NFL. We are now in the age of viral news and anything can get out, the whole world is watching. Even Michael Vick was allowed to rejoin and get paid.
I don't agree with what he did, but I do believe that they could have handled this situation much better than they did. They should have started him in counseling immediately and can out with the information as soon as it was known.

If my children were allowed to ride with their grandparents on a vacation and I found out they were going 100 mph, they wouldn’t ever be allowed to drive with them ever again. I’d be so fired up, I probably wouldn’t allow them to see the kids for a year.
Really? In the wide open highway I can easily go 100mph and not even realize it...
Hence forth why you are "very crazy."
Glad my son doesn't feel that way.

What she and the Dems mean is, they want to go back to the good old days when they got wads of cash from unions which conveniently aren’t corporations. Ridiculous influxes of cash for Dems = GOOD, equal influxes of cash for Reps = BAD. These people are so hypocritical it’s amazing they can show their mugs in public.

I doubt there is anyone on this forum that is more conservative then myself and I doubt anyone dislikes Kerry any more than I do. That said, this is just dumb. Obviously, any public employee is going to have time off and there is ALWAYS some crisis going on somewhere. His job is not allowed to occupy every minute of every day and he can spend his free time doing whatever the heck he wants to do. He can sit in his house and talk to his family, but he can’t go out and partake in exercise for his mental and physical health?
Just dumb. Let’s concentrate on the stupid stuff he does when he’s working, not what he does when he’s off the clock. I actually look at this as a good thing, if he’s kite surfing, he’s not making our country look incompetent.
Very well said!!!
I am impressed that a 70 year-old is out there kite boarding. Most people that age are sitting in a chair waiting for Wheel of Fortune to come on.
That's ridiculous. He's not an hourly employee, he's salaried. In the real world, when there's a crisis at work, all vacations are cancelled and unpaid overtime by salaried employees is expected until the crisis is fixed. But this elitist has never worked or lived in the real world. He's not one of the "little people", He is John (did you know I served in Vietnam) Kerry, libtard elitist hypocrite.
I'd agree with you a 100% if Kerry rolled up his shirt sleeves and took care of business first. If he was actually helping to solve our nation's problems while he's on the clock, then few would begrudge him for enjoying himself while off the clock, but the dude is a loafer on and off the clock.
He would have to do some work first before he deserved a vacation. I don't consider pushing a unconstitutional agenda "work".
Sorry but I disagree. It's not like he punches a clock and works for a water or street dept in your town, THAT, is a public employee.
What work are you talking about? He's had how long to make a simple phone call to get our Marine out of the mexico jail? He's obviously not working on that one. The American/mexican border is beyond "on fire" and what work has he done on this? Has he even visited more than the ONE time (and first time) in May of this year? Obviously very little work being done here. How about in dealing with Egypt? Nope, not working there. Hamas and Israel? Nothing there except telling Israel that they need to behave. Tell me, please do, what this work is that you speak of that deserves paid time off?
As pointed out above, in the REAL world, salaried positions fix the crisis before getting vacation no matter how long it's been scheduled. The crisis can be as dumb as management changing the week of inventory to the week you picked 12 months ago for vacation. Bummer! In other words KERRY GET TO WORK YOU LAZY BUM!!! It'll never happen.

These people are cowards. They don’t have to endorse the guy, just acknowledge what he did, thank him and leave it at that.
February 24, 2013 at 11:10am
These people are clearly misinformed on the proper way to defend themselves. They should have urinated in their pants, while blowing their rape whistles and firing shotguns in the air off the back deck. Silly noobs.

Nothing you described exhibits physical harm. It sounds like you experienced the effects of marijuana and didn’t enjoy them. This can certainly lead a panic attack, which it sounds like you did have. However, none of those symptoms exhibit damage or were life threatening, no matter how scary they may have seemed.
Fair enough, I should have put a disclaimer referring to possible allergies. But, much like peanuts, we don’t criminalize their ingestion for everyone because a certain number of people are allergic. I think the general point I was trying to make is fairly clear.
I don’t excuse these two knuckleheas in the story, I think I made that clear as well.

“The victims who consumed the marijuana brownies have all recovered and are out of the hospital”
That’s freaking hilarious. By “recover” they must mean their “high” wore off. To be clear, you CANNOT be harmed directly by intaking marijuana. It’s NEVER happened in the thousands of years that humans have been consuming and smoking it. Sure, you can get cancer, but you can’t OD or anything like it.
That being said, they certainly need to face repercussions for their actions. No one should be given a drug against their will or without their knowledge. The other problem is they were EXTREMELY high. The effects of marijuana are much stronger when cooked as opposed to smoked. That and the fact they probably ingested way more than would be comfortable for a rookie. Happens quite often with consumables, even with veteran smokers, as the effects take much longer to kick in.
"To be clear, you CANNOT be harmed directly by intaking marijuana."
This is akin to saying that getting drunk is fine if you just sleep it off. Or getting roofied. Just because there's no lasting harm does not mean it doesn't do harm in the interim.
The first and only time I tried eating pop was years and years ago in university. After no effect for an hour and a half, it hit me like a train. Sweating profusely, lost all sense of depth perception, couldn't keep a coherent thought in my head. My heart felt like it would burst out of my chest, it was pounding so hard. I ended up spending most of the next few hours vomiting into a toilet, just praying for it to stop.
And I at least had a vague idea of what I was getting myself into. These kids made a dumb choice... but drugging someone without their knowledge should be (and rightly is) a felony offense. If I experienced those reactions without knowing why, I would have called 911 right away.
So JUNGLE, are you simply generalizing ALL pot consumers as "burnouts"? It seems to be what you are going for, and I'm just wondering if you drink coffee or soda, or take cough medicine, or have ever had a beer...all those things are FAR more addictive and harmful than pot, and I'm just trying to figure out why you seem to be so hostile towards people that choose to relax at the end of the day in a way you don't agree with...would you mid breaking it down for me?
You speak like a judgmental idiot.
Yes, you can be harmed by the intaking of marijuana, my oldest is highly allergic. While doing a ride along, some little punk being arrested threw his weed into my sons face. Our first experience with the drug, my son was Hazmatted and stuck with an epipen and hospitalized. His face swelled, his throat swelled, eyes swelled, the hives were immediate. His dad is fire/emt and was at work, luckily, with some of my epipens. It was a lovely night at the hospital for us. To ingest this weed could kill my son. So in the statement " you CANNOT be harmed directly by intaking marijuana" you are wrong. For some, it can be a death sentence.
Nothing you described exhibits physical harm. It sounds like you experienced the effects of marijuana and didn't enjoy them. This can certainly lead a panic attack, which it sounds like you did have. However, none of those symptoms exhibit damage or were life threatening, no matter how scary they may have seemed.

GUN, yours sons reaction is an allergy...if THAT is the measuring stick you are using to argue the "harmful effects" of pot, I hope you take equally hard stances against latex, peanuts, penicillin, shellfish, dogs and cats...I think you are getting the picture
"Nothing you described exhibits physical harm."
Please don't move the goalposts. Harm does not need to be physical. I can rob you and you won't be physically hurt, but it's still harmful. I can tape headphones over your ears and play "This is the song that never ends" for 48 straight hours and you won't be physically harmed, but it's still harmful.
Something doesn't need to "physically" harm you to still be "harmful." And my first, and last, ingestion of pot was certainly harmful. If it has happened to me without knowing why I was having these effects, I would think that I was having a stroke, or a heart attack, or a total mental breakdown.
Look, they may have been high but they didn't know they had consumed anything to make them high.So to them, they were having a panic attack or extreme paranioa/dizzinesss/feelilng weird from an unknow source. I can see why they call it "recovered".
No matter if consuming/smoking pot has never killed anyone, no one should have any drug secretly given them. I don't care how innocuous it seems. Even aspirin can mess up a person allergic to it.
love the name..no an allergy was not the harmful effect I was pointing too. No logical person would think to ask if pot was in a brownie. Don't get me wrong, I'm for legalizing, regulating and taxing the crap out of drugs. The "war" on drugs is a waste of money and time. But the attitude that pot is safe is wrong. For some, it's deadly and they may not know it having never been exposed. When taking an allergy test, pot is not an allergen they check for. If my son had a peanut allergy, he would ask if peanuts were in the brownie, logical.

I have to agree with Choctaw, I usually surf the Internet with my IPad and this is the only site that is unbearably slow. It’s not popups that are the problem, something is seriously slowing down every aspect of the load. I have 100 Mbps service from Charter cable and all the sites I visit load instantly. The Blaze on the other hand is so slow and bogs down so completely, that it is almost not worth the effort. It took me about 8 minutes to type this short post and the text appeared about 20 seconds after typing it. I post on many forums and this is the only one that does this.
