So far being the key. Wait until the field is announced and listen for crickets form all 3. Who did Rush endorse in 2012? Hannity ? Beck? Levin? I listen to them each day and they wouldn’t endorse anyone. Just said to vote for Mitt in the end, he is such a conservative
[-4] February 27, 2015 at 12:06pm
When Hannity, Beck and Rush actually grow a pair and actually support / endorse a candidate then they will be taken serious. They are all GOP party hacks that cash in on the stupidity of “conservatives” while never supporting a conservative. All they tell their audience to do is pull the lever for an “R” and never take a stand and you guys think they are conservative. They are hacks and you guys are walking ATMs to them
You made that up. There is no basis for what you say. Everyone knows you can't vote for any democrat. The party is overrun with alinsky radicals and muslim brotherhood.
The lever for R doesn't have anything to do with it. It's "anything but D"..
Everyone must remember that it takes 6 years to get at every politician in the Senate. Out of those some will bamboozle the voters with their lies and it's another 6 years to get another crack at them.
We have come a long way in only 6 years and it's just started.
Washington looks little like it did even 2 years ago. We have superstars that weren't there 4 and 6 years ago.
The task that lies ahead is to scrub the universe of alinsky radicals, starting with the bureaucracy..
So far, Rush supports Walker, Beck supports Cruz, Hannity is leaning Walker. I know this because I listen carefully.

first is says there is no other commandment greater than loving your neighbor so your verses seems of little importance.
2nd are you god? If not who are you to say who is the sinner? Judge not lest ye be judged seems to come to mind. I recall that we are all sinners and he died for our signs according to the book. So who are you to say they are a sinner or if their sin is any greater than yours?
Jesus didn’t shun away sinners like you bigots reading the book today. He was a man of compassion and love, not bigotry and hatred.
“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
 February 25, 2015 at 11:32am
There was a radical that said “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
If you cant live by that you aren’t a Christian , you are a bigot with a book you don’t seem to follow
1 Corinthians 5:13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked person from among you."
Proverbs 12:26 'The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.'
EXPEL the wicked person...Choose their FRIENDS carefully...The Bible is full of warnings to avoid the temptations of sinners, to have nothing to do with them...loving your neighbor does not mean embracing unrepentant sinners, a truth too many fail to understand.

Does she check they hymen of every woman coming in to be married to ensure she didn’t engage in pre marital sex since that is against the bible? Does she check divorce records of all clients wanting flowers for a wedding to make sure they haven’t been previously married since that would be adultery? I doubt it, she just don’t like gay people and wants her silly book to be justification.
She can dislike gays all she likes but her business is a public business which has to abide by the laws of the state. We don’t live in a theocracy so her bible isn’t the law of the land.
Religion is like a penis, no one has a problem with it until you pull it out and throw it in peoples faces.
I don't believe there exists in this country, a homosexual who agrees with your last line.
Where've you been, Nevermind? Seems like you haven't been around for a long time. Welcome back.
What about abiding by the Constitution...?
Passed by Congress January 31, 1865. Ratified December 6, 1865.
Section 1. ‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction’
‘A condition of compulsory service or labor performed by one person, against his will, for the benefit of another person due to force, threats, intimidation or other similar means of coercion and compulsion directed against him’
NO Involuntary Servitude...
Didn't read the Hobby Lobby ruling did ya?....Her RIGHT to practice her religion trumps the desires of others to have flowers......;)
...or use it inappropriately.

Arabic numbers are a good example and considering we all use tem that is a good example
As a person with a math degree and interest in history, I can tell you that Arabic numerals predate the founding of Islam, which occured in the early 7th century. Islam has NOTHING to do with it.
The first positional numerical system developed in Babylon in the 2nd millennium BC. While it used a zero-like placeholder, the first true zero was developed by ancient mathematicians in the Indian Subcontinent. Arabic numerals are used to represent this Hindu-Arabic numeral system, in which a sequence of digits such as "975" is read as a single number. This system is traditionally thought to have been adopted by the Muslim Persian and Arab mathematicians in India, and passed on to the Arabs further west. There is some evidence which suggests that the numerals in their current form developed from Arabic letters in the western regions of the Arab World. The current form of the numerals developed in North Africa, distinct in form from the Indian and eastern Arabic numerals. It was in the North African city of Bejaia that the Italian scholar Fibonacci first encountered the numerals; his work was crucial in making them known throughout Europe, and then further to the Europeans who spread it worldwide. The use of Arabic numerals spread around the world through European trade, books and colonialism.

Same can be said of Christians being associated with KKK and Neo Nazis. They use the bible to justify their hate so you should do something about them or face the consequences of your silence and inaction.
See how it works , you cant ask others to do something you haven’t done or are willing to do yourself. KKK claims to be Christian and has been around over 100 years yet all the good Christians haven’t stomped them out of existence so why ask all Muslims to stop ISIS after a year?
The problem with analogies is that they have to be apt. In this case, let's try to express it as a MAT question:
ISIS:Islam = KKK:Christianity vs. ISIS:Islam = Christians:KKK
Does that hold up? Where does it fall apart?
"KKK and NeoNazis being associated with Christianity" might have been a more intellectually honest way to put it.
Familiar with the relationship between a couple of Protestant denominations and a couple of KKK branches. Was not aware of the big overlap between NeoNazis/Skinheads and any Christian sect. See a lot of swastika tattoos; not a lot of crosses (burning or otherwise) in the National Socialist Party.
And real Christians vocally and loudly stand against the KKK and the Nazis whether the new or old version of the same evil.
Really? so that whole changing of our laws,you know the civil rights movement, to protect all races hasn't helped? As for the KKK and their ilk, unfortunately there are still uneducated, narrow minded buffoons. Yet, your logic can be applied to many types of groups that exist today outside of the two you reference. But how do you correlate racism in America today with Islams violent hatred towards non-Muslims? ISIS is just another name foisted onto these barbarians and their hostility, they have existed much longer than a year (think crusades) their venom and barbarism has festered for generations. So, when are the "peaceful" Muslims going to act?
 January 30, 2015 at 12:20pm
You do know that when you typed out 1654 you actually used Arabic numbers? So how about this, if you don’t want them to sing Star Spangled Banner stop using their numbers.
See how your stupidity works out

Religion is like a dick, no one has a problem with it until you pull it out and start waving it in other peoples faces
Uh--I think Ford was waving homosexuality in this guy's face. His response didn't comport with their cheerleading. In fact, between homosexuals forcing companies into baking them cakes and doing their photos, I don't think it's religion that's the problem.
Ford was wrong in the way that they advocate this issue and waved it in his face, but then he pulled out his one and waved it also.

As a democrat, vet and atheist I find your opinion laughable. I sure love this country enough to swear on my life to protect it as all vets have. When did you serve? More than likely never , couch Rambo. Lets vets speak for vets

Actually the BLM were there to enforce the law which he knowingly broke. The militia were there protecting the law breaker
And yes I have taken a course in civics so I don’t need you asking me about constitution.
[-10] December 24, 2014 at 10:11am
While I think pointing a firearm at law enforcement is stupid I find it odd that during the Bundy ranch stand off many here had a different take. There are photos for all to see of militia aiming sniper rifles at law enforcement and many of you here were cheering for the militia and against the ” jack booted thug police” yet now pointing a firearm is grounds for murder.
So if there is another stand off at Bundy ranch and law enforcement have sniper rifles aimed at them they are within their rights to start shooting and murder bundy and his supporters?
You miss the "consistency" because you are either ignorant of all the facts or are pushing an agenda...which is it?
The BLM armed persons pointed their weapons at peaceable protesters - did you miss that? Did you miss when the BLM gave in and retreated they did so in a "combat maneuver" whereby they back out with half their number facing backward and walking backward as they trained their FULLY AUTOMATIC weapons on the protesters?
An American citizen brandishing a firearm in a lawful manner in a state where open carry is allowed, is not breaking the law by being armed. And BLM, FBI, ATF and Homeland Security were all their and they had their weapons trained on the protesters the ENTIRE TIME. They had snipers on the hills and in their blackened window vehicles too.
So NEVERMIND, did you ever read the Constitution? Are you aware it protects rights of citizens and NOT the government? The government does not need protection from us, but indeed, and especially because of the ass lick in office and his corrupt admin, we the people need protection from our government.
Where have you been the last 6 years? Are you honestly that unaware of events the last half-dozen years? Is your head too far up your butt enjoying the smell of your own farts (nod to the arrogant in South Park) to notice the militarization of government agencies? Or is it okay with you, cause "government is our friend?" Have you missed Obama's call for a "private army," whatever that means? I fear my government.
How many people were killed at the Bundy Ranch??
You are a great liberal. I do see Your comparison, it is stupid and You are just stuck with it.
But nevermind nevermind.

The hero of the right Ben Carson proves your theory incorrect

Well if this scenario took place the kid would be right. If an adult has a firearm not secured in their home and a child can easily find and take it then the gun owner is the problem. Just like in Sandy Hook the kid took his parents firearms and many other shootings the child took their parents unsecured firearm.
I have mixed feelings about this sentiment. If my guns had not been lost in that terrible boating accident, they would all be locked up, safe and sound, from anyone that didn't know the combination to my safe. That being said, one of my best friends raised all three of his kids, with guns pretty much out in the open of his house. He was very strict with them, they knew they weren't allowed to touch them when he wasn't around, but when he was, he was adamant to teach them responsible handling, etc. While his way worked well (his children grew up to be great adults), I don't thinks it's for everyone. But to encourage a child to "steal" a gun from his or her parents is irresponsible and should be grounds for criminal charges.
@Nevermind: The thieving child is WRONG and should be punished. He STOLE a vital element of his home's security plan, putting his whole family in serious danger. Take the Bible out of school and this what you get. How about - Thou shalt not steal. Honor thy Father and thy Mother.
Dude the kid in the Sandy Hook shooting killed his mom. Plus he was a freaking adult and didn't live with her anymore. This has to be one of the most assinine comments I have ever seen.

So…. you got nothing is what you are saying? As I thought. Just mad at Shartpon and Obama but nothing to cite to prove your case. Typical sheep
[-4] December 22, 2014 at 9:36am
While it is typical to paint Sharpton and Obama as the devil or boogey man, can someone please cite what each one said to provoke the murder of this officer? Please cite date and quote . I doubt any of you will be able to produce anything but you guys love to blame shartpon and Obama for all of your problems.
Figure it out, lamebrain. These guys use divisive and inflammatory language, set up the police as an enemy, then act surprised when people act on the anger and hatred they themselves stoked. Honestly, it's a wonder you can read and write.
Semantics . . . If you are looking for the definitive statement of these “folks” that says in no uncertain terms to “Go forth my brothers and kill cops for me and you”….
of course you won’t.
But constantly preaching “Black Lib Theology” and reinforcing that whites want Blacks in Chains . . .again . . .Blacks are held back by whites . . .RACISM is internal, systematic, institutionalized . . .Cops shoot Blacks . . .for fun . .and always get away with it . . .and THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER . . ….
Pick …pick…pick …at every real and perceived SCAB until it bleeds . . . .
rabble rouser . . .Rhetoric ( some paraphrased so don’t look for exact quotes to miss the point on purpose ) like this is meant purely to inflame, to anger, to incite . . .well incite to something . .not quite said . . . .But certainly incites anger . . .and AL SHARPTON turns people to this un-satisfied…frothed up anger . . . .And WHO’s FAULT is it that caused all this ANGER….?
>>>>>> WHITES…..WHITE COPS….ALL COPS…ALL WHITES…..!
No …… Al has never told any one to kill ( although friend Farrakhan has )
but . . .He would “understand” if someone did.
Semantics……..depends on what your meaning of “IS” . . .is.
We are now under intense threat from those who are misguided – from those who are trying to blame everyone from civil rights leaders to the mayor rather than deal with an ugly spirit that all of us need to fight,” he said.
Sharpton added: “There are those of us committed to nonviolence and making the system work. And there are those committed to anarchy and recklessness who could care less about the families of police or the families who have raised questions about police accountability.”
what ugly spirit is he talking about. no police, no conservatives, no one with a brain is even talking about this. it is only sharpton and the race baiters. so you think he can legitimately call out the police and and whites and say there is a national attack on blacks, yet then allow him to blame others? it is you that paint with a broad brush, not me. I will though state facts, two policemen dead because a black said it was retribution. care to make a comment on that.
Why yes I can. In his tirade at the late felon mike browns funeral he claimed that the late felon mike brown was screaming for blood from his grave.
Like so many other out of town inciters he comes to town, rants his rant, and runs off to where ever the next $50.000.00 is waiting for him to appear……excepting that the other inciters aren't so handsomely paid. And before you put your foot in your mouth again (figuratively speaking) I can also find links to those people as well.

The assignment was an exercise of reading comprehension , exactly what you felt should be focused on yet too hard for this ” gifted ” student?
 December 16, 2014 at 12:23pm
Considering e question she cited is rather self explanatory perhaps she isn’t as bright as she once thought. The problem is on the world stage are kids are lagging behind the rest of the world in education . So make the curriculum a bit more challenging and yield the results. Those opposed should look at the amounts of Chinese and Indian kids coming here and taking great jobs due to their education.
School should be made more challenging, not dumbed down by Common Core.
Do you know what common(ist) core is?
I thought we were only taking Muslim “refugees” and illegals (oooooohhh, he said the racist, xenophobic word) while making it as difficult and lengthy as possible for actual qualified immigrants to enter. By the way, they don’t need to bother coming here anymore because progressive tax policies are driving American businesses into their countries.
As long as we are driving businesses away, why do kids need to bother getting an education for a job that won't be there when they grow up?
She is ten, 10, freaking years old. Literature and poetry are worthless when it comes to competing for jobs. You must be one of those people who think "if a school teaches it, it must be important". That's total bullchit. Students from foreign countries are eating our lunch because they understand that liberal arts are worthless. They focus on reading and comprehension, writing so that someone can understand your thoughts, and mathmatics. Those are the real CORE subjects. Tell me how many jobs are available for a literary professor.......let me answer that......the only jobs available for literary professors are TEACHING literature to people who don't want to learn it and will never use it to earn a living for themselves unless they are teaching someone else who doesn't want it or need it.
“The problem is on the world stage are kids are lagging behind the rest of the world in education.”
First of all, it’s “our kids,” not “are kids.”
Second of all, these standards were not in effect in decades past, yet somehow America was #1 in the world for decades, even centuries.
The point of Common Core is this: to “sift the wheat” of our kids' abilities in an effort to separate the gifted from the not-so-gifted. And then, the gifted ones will be targeted for specific education and career paths in an effort to support a global government and business model (aka, fascism or perhaps aristocracy) run by the elites of the world.
It’s insideous what these people are doing before our very eyes, yet we the people stand here in denial of what is going on because we can’t believe the people in power would be that evil and do these things to us or our children.
I’m not even going to bother with a “wake up people” because the bell has already rung. The plan is in place and it is moving forward. The only thing worth fighting for at this point is your freedom to find out if there is a next life (freedom of religion), because this one’s doomed.
Merry Christmas!!! :)
Considering that the girl is only 10, I don't see the fact that this was confusing to be a problem. I didn't develop my essay skills completely until high school. When I got to college I had no trouble with any of the essays I was assigned. But at age 10 I still didn't understand what an essay even was.
Sure this question is elementary to an experienced essay writer, but to a 10 year old girl this is advanced. Essay writing requires a level of critical thinking and the ability to argue a point. I certainly couldn't have done it at her age. 10 is when you start to introduce how to write an essay, not when you expect them to already be able to write one.
The problem comes in when the test asks questions on subjects that have not been taught to the student. Our high schoolers faced the same problem with math. Math problems they had not been oriented to were on the test.
If this 10 year old had never been taught how to find themes through the characters or speaker in a story or poem, how do they expect her to answer? She should just google it?
You may want to proof read your comment before calling OUR kids stupid, stupid
December 15, 2014 at 3:32pm
You are a special kind of stupid or just playing that role. A public school is paid for by tax players and they come from all religions. A tax payer shouldn’t have tax $$ for to a school that uses some of that $$ for religious symbols, text statues or plaques.
Yes taxes go to things you don’t agree with and I am sure one example you will use is abortion, guess what? You may not agree with it but it is legal. Using public funds to buy religious crap is not. so there in lies the difference.
You ability to agree with something doesn’t make it legal or inability to agree doesn’t make it illegal.
December 15, 2014 at 3:15pm
All gods should be prohibited on public property since it is paid by tax payers. Madison made it clear that no one be compelled to finance any religion or denomination. So having public ( tax) dollars paying for schools is no place for your 10 commandments.
“no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish enlarge, or affect their civil capacities”
