Read the scientist’s book, Saddam’s Bomb Maker. It’s a REALLY good read that goes into depth on how he was forced to leave AMERICA, where he was educated at to go back and help Saddam. I can’t remember the name of the scientist, as the book was loaned to me by a friend and I returned it, but if you google Saddam’s Bomb Maker, I’m sure you can find the book.

Pop Rocks are amazing, but I digress
Rollins has been out there for over 15 years. He was on Jackass, which I watched in high school. I don’t think Rollins should have apologized for anything. I honestly feel bad for the family of Mr. Williams, but if they knew he was going through such a tough time, why did they leave him alone? If they didn’t know he was going through such a bought of depression, why didn’t he think someone would miss him if he was gone?

Then educate yourself on his musical attributes before passing judgement by simply using google… I’m not a fan of his music, but I love punk rock. To dim it down to your level, I know who David Cassidy is, but I have never listened to the Partridge Family or their music, unless tortured through devices that I had no control over and I am supposed to pass judgement based on something I don’t know? That would make me just as judgmental and ignorant as the statement you just left. I’ll pray that you would quit judging things before you know what’s going on, as the Bible says to do!

Thank you for giving a voice of reason to this discussion!

Looks like you have never heard of a very influential band called Black Flag, which that “Rollins dude” was the lead singer of. Wanna talk about green horn? He has been on TV since I was in high school, over 10 years ago when my MOM was yelling about me for stealing her Black Flag CD’s. Oh, and that guy from Dirty Jobs, his name is Mike Rowe, how about doing a google search before griping about things so you might not look like a low information member of society?

Henry Rollins used to be the lead singer of the punk band Black Flag, and as a rock music enthusiast, as I am my self, I’m sure you have heard of them. Love your libertarian view point to let someone actually have an opinion! Keep Rocking!

I am not a fan of Mr. Rollins but i agree with him and F*** Suicide! How about it’s the coward’s way out? I love Mr. Williams, I’m a huge fan of his work and I feel bad for his family and I pray for them, but how in the world did they not know he was going through this?
My cousin took his life and my dad, who lost his bff in a similar fashion called my lil bro, sis and I into the room where my Nana was staying in the hotel on our trip up to the northeast. He was furious, more that we were so young going through the situation and asked us to ask Nana how she felt about her grandchild killing himself. It was hard for her to answer, but she did it with grace, and at the end we prayed for my cousin’s forgiveness. If your life is worth living for one person, it may be a child, it may be a grandmother, but someone loves you!

Where are my supposed Libertarian Brothers and Sisters speaking out? This is the Blaze, right? I didn’t stumble onto the “I love John McCain and Lindsey Graham” website disguised as the Blaze by accident, did I?
I would like to point out that I am for parental choice, and if this is the way these parents want to raise their child and by all accounts they want to do what’s right for him, Ryland seems to be unharmed, happy and healthy, then it is their choice as parents. Those of you that keep making this seem so arbitrary like he was going though a phase didn’t live with him, you saw a 7 minute video and think you know what his life was like. Get off your high horse and get over yourself. Or maybe you think you’re a horse now.
I love all of you and respect your religious beliefs, but God makes us all different for His own reason. He also teaches us to love. He creates diverse members of our society to make us more tolerant, more loving and better people. If you don’t believe that, next time you meet a blonde or a red head, force them to change their hair color to brown. It won’t work.
Why don’t we respect one another, love one another, and just let this kid grow up in a safe, happy home life. Don’t bother me about Genetics either, I know how it works. Next time you’re with you LBGT friend, explain it to their face that they are insane for being who they are. You don’t have the guts and if you are a good friend you wouldn’t. My LGBT friends have known it since a
I don't think LGBT people are insane, but these parents are. They outed this kid to the whole world!

Genetics can also lead to disorders where a child (and this mostly happens with children that are born genetically male, since I don’t believe, based on your comment, that you don’t know very much about genetics, I’m not going to get into the differences in having two X chromosomes and one X and one Y) have no genitalia. In most of these cases, for reason that the surgeries must be done at a young age, it is easier for the surgeries done on the child and the parents to choose that the child have female genitalia. They raise these genetic boys to be little girls. What do you have to say about this child’s genetics now? If the child is happy and healthy, then let the parents raise the child however they want to, it is their rights as parents.

Let’s think rationally about this for a moment and look at what Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper did and Marilyn Manson did. It’s not a big deal, and quite honestly its a freak show that’s been done over and over before as part of a SHOW. She’s a washed up leftist hag who can’t come up with a new idea. *SURPRISE!*
Being a old school rock dork and one who loves trivia, do you know what happened to Toni Iomi’s (the guitar player from Black Sabbath) famous Gibson SG with the inverted crosses on it? IT WAS STOLEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN. He would have Gibson make another one and it would come up missing. Oh, and another little known fact about Iomi, he came up with the concept for Sabbath from watching the people stand outside a movie studio for hours waiting to get into a horror flick and decided to make scary music (ie its a gimmick). The day he left the metal working factory where he worked to do Black Sabbath full time, he lost all of his fingertips on his right hand, as he’s left handed, his right hand is the hand he has to feel the frets and strings on to play while he strums with his left.
Next thing you’ll hear is that she’s talking to Marilyn Manson to get patrons to sacrifice puppies before she preforms. Get over it. ITS ALL JUST A SHOW!!!! What makes her get her kicks is that you’re talking about it rather than mocking for doing a washed up act done again. Just hope she doesn’t emulate GG Allen next and defecate on stage at her next show and throw it into t
Very well said. There are certainly some rock groups out there that are into Satan worship - some of the Norwegian black metal bands instantly spring to mind, like Mayhem, Marduk, and Burzum. However, 99.9% of ostensibly "satanic" bands and performers out there are only putting on a shocking performance.
Just some bands from off the top of my head that were accused of Satanism by people who don't know wtf they are talking about include: Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Marilyn Manson, Cradle of Filth, AC/DC, KISS, Iron Maiden, The Beatles, Slayer, oh and Katy Perry. Of course there are tons others. Those are just the few that spring to mind with 2 seconds of thought.

Madison Rising’s rendition of it is awesome. I have it on several of my itunes playlists and listen to it like I would any other rock song.
Being Veggie is a LIFESTYLE choice! I should know. I come from a family of hunters and fishers, but have been veggie for 15 years, which is half of my life. My sister became veggie a few years ago, but we aren’t arrogant butt holes about it. Mom, dad, and our brother eat meat and we don’t. For us it came down to something similar that Stu said. I cannot look into the animal’s innocent eyes, kill it, skin it, grill it, and eat it. If you can’t then you don’t deserve to eat it. I am a huge advocate for hunting animals. It is way more humane than a slaughter house. If you can’t stomach the killing of it, then don’t eat it, but if shooting an animal with a gun, skinning, butchering, cooking and eating an animal is the same a pedophilia, this guy has more mental problems than I am qualified to diagnose.

I really want to go to this.
Think about it:
I already know what I’m going to wear, my #teambuck t-shirt.
I have tons of questions to ask, none of which are going to be answered, yet all will be really annoying and distort their message.
I will be annoying to them in the most polite, “smile in the face of your enemies kinda way”.
I watch/ listen to the Blaze and do my own homework, so I will be well informed in the face of adversity.
Who wouldn’t want to go and ruffle some feathers while speaking the truth?
I love it and I wanna go, someone has to be there to represent our side of the argument.
You're a warrior, Nikki! As we've said in The Corps for decades - "Lean forward!"
Especially when you're up against the wall!
Nikkinik- I think that's a great idea. But I will wear my "what if Glenn Beck is right?" T-shirt. I will be sure to carry my Bible ( you know us crazy pro- lifers ) i think it would be fun.... Lol. I'm everything liberals hate. But hey, I'm good with that!

Madison Rising is beyond Awesome! Finally a great rock band, great message, and a guitarist who actually knows how to play rather than someone mixing tracks. I love it and have been begging for it for years! Come to Florida, guys, I can’t wait to see you live.
The haters can rock to Nickleback and pop their pills from a pez dispenser.
Madison Rising is a Nickleback clone with patriotic lyrics.

What in the world?
Honestly, as a Christian, would you disregard any information in a text book that was on the page 666 that could help you on a test because that’s the mark of Satin?
When I was in high school we had a little over 1000 kids in our school and my last name starts with an M, so my assigned lunch number was 666, my younger brother was 667. I tried to get them to change it and they wouldn’t. The lunch ladies feared me, and sometimes refused to feed me, but I got though it with the same number assigned to me for 4 years.
I understand where she is coming from and respect her for standing up for her values, but there is some point where a number is just a number. Take the text book example or do you make sure the number of characters in a post doesn’t equal 666? How about cashing a check that was numbered 666? Would you throw away that money? I would hope you have more sense than that.

I hate this for the family, and unfortunately cremation is an irreversible process, but they know he’s with is heavenly father, and I hope that brings them peace.
Having said that, and having worked in the funeral industry, I cannot tell you how often the facilities get the names wrong on the remains. It can also be confusing for a removal service, and having been in that position, you can go to a facility and pick up someone’s remains and have nurses chasing you out of the building that someone else has moved on. This particular funeral home is part of an international corporation of cemeteries and funeral homes, SCI (or Service Corporation International). Although there was this one inexcusable mix up, as a company they handle thousands of funerals flawlessly all over the country, including members of my own family, Michael Jackson’s service, countless other celebrities and politicians, like they handled the service of Ronald Regan.
From what this news story tells, the funeral home did nothing wrong and it was a mix up at the facility, many of those places have morgues and cut the identification bands off the decedents for their records. I honestly recommend that either you or a strong member of your family stay with your loved one and witness the removal from the place of death to the funeral home. If your loved one wanted to be cremated, witness the process (it’s your legal right to do so). Be proactive about after life care and this would have never happened.
Good advice, Clergy and Church Members would be willing to "sit with the dead" too, but how many does ANY funeral home handle in a DAY. MAXIMUM! A Dozen? LESS? How many die in a "facility" a day, a Half Dozen, less?
They got ONE THING to do and only have to repeat it a FEW TIMES a DAY. I'm not buying the excuse. SCHOOLS deal with HUNDREDS of Kids a day.

I grew up in Highland Lakes, NJ and went to school in Vernon. I used to pass by this place almost daily and always begged my mom to take us and she never would.
I kinda understand why she didn’t now, but I always thought she was joking when she told me that the kids threw rocks at each other and all the injuries that happened. I just thought she didn’t want to take us there. I also understand why my parents moved us out of state now.

Who wears short shorts?
The President wears short shorts!
What is up with the matching shoes and socks? You don’t even see Michale Jordan doing that in commercials.
Oh, and that last pic, he looks like he’s got a stick up his butt.

My brother was a Hooters girl.
Wait, maybe I should start over, my brother isn’t and has never been gender confused My Dad used to CALL my brother a Hooters girl when he worked there as a cook after leaving my his construction business. He loved working there and my Mom used to insist that we eat out there all the time to watch my brother work. The servers were always so sweet! Hooters offers a lot of modeling opportunities and scholarships for the women and insists that they are treated with respect. I’m glad that they are standing up against the Mayor of San Diego and are, once again, standing for women’s rights!
