I do not nit pick grammar amd such in comments, however I cannot help but point out that the English language must have changed to accept the words “should of” instead of the correct “should have” (would have, could have, etc.) since I was educated. It kind of annoys me when professional writers have not proof read and editors have not proof read after the writer for grammatical errors and fixed them.
I prefer that the professional writers quote speakers accurately, rather than correcting their grammar for them.

What do people say when they make the same stupid mistakes when faulting others?
WHAT is amd?
People that live in glass houses shouldn't.

Zappa is having a kaniption fit over Cruz.

Judge is wrong about Rand Paul… the only “libertarian” candidate likely to run who has been nearly biblically close with Al Sharpton and is ironically at odds with the Constitution by selling out the border and voter registration. Ted is the only candidate that will come close to being a Constitutional conservative. Rand is dead to me. His supporters in the front row of Cruz’s speech were not only immature and hurt his cause but likely pro drugs. I would not have a problem with the legalization and such if we had a society today that understood and exercised self control and moderation. That society disappeared with the welfare acts. However, if some medicine can truly be found and can indeed come from any source, would make it cheaper for treatment, I would say why not. Just stop having the fed regulate everything. Like how big the Netflix main pipe from their streaming servers should be. Telling a business that they cannot have faster speeds that they are paying for is going waaaaaay too far.
"I would not have a problem with the legalization and such if we had a society today that understood and exercised self control and moderation."
This is a position from the right that I sincerely do not understand. Why is it your business what other people put in their bodies? Why do you feel the need to use the arm of government force to keep people from using substances because you feel they do not exercise sufficient self-control? How is this any different from progressives panicking about an obesity "epidemic" and demanding the privilege to regulate what we eat and drink? I live in a welfare society and you live in a welfare society, and I think we both likely have some measure of self control. Judging 300 million people by the laws under which they are forced to live seems wildly unfair to me. I would also point out that Liberty University students are forced to go to convocation ceremonies or risk paying a fine. They were forced to witness Cruz's announcement, and they made it known that they were not there to support him. That's not immature at all, that's just making sure that others know that their political opinion is not the exact same as Cruz's. Also, it is shameful for a university named Liberty to coerce students to attend political meetings regardless of the political persuasion of said students. Liberty is a private university and students certainly have a choice of whether or not to attend the school, but it still strikes me as outrageously totalitarian.

This whole shmack has been about shutting down free speech on the internet and preventing people like tea party types from using social media to network and organize. If the party in charge disagrees with your political speech, porn and everything else is okay but to them, you should not be able to hold politicians’ feet to the fire on issues for which they were elected to work.
Mark my words, it will also be about TAXING emails, TAXING all online purchases with a federal sales tax after which the more progressive states will certainly follow suit. Many problems with taxing emails… like do internal intranet emails get taxed? Is there then a legal record of all emails to ensure you were taxed properly? Will we then soon be seeing DNA readers to read your hands actually creating your communiques on a keyboard in the near or distant future and then individually forbid or permit people to use the internet or be banned for life? Completely remove anonymity? Is it not better to see fairly anonymous comments that are more truthful than see a completely PC version of society never speaking truthfully on internet? The truth is, we should be able to speak openly without anonymity on the internet without fear of repercussions from free speech hating tyrannical libgressive democommies. We cannot in present day so leaving the internet’s anonymity in place is the best choice in my OPINION. I would hope that most freedom and Constitution loving people think along the same lines.

So what you are saying then is that I cannot get faster speeds at my own home if I choose to pay for my increased allotment of bandwidth or faster upload/download speeds?
That is insane! You think Netflix should not be able to do the same to their ISP(s) where their networks are located providing streaming services because their customer growth is growing and they need to be able to stream to more customers simultaneously? The big lie that you all in the libgressive camp have brainwashed the masses with is that somehow the ISPs will move big streaming company data to the front of the line which is not what they are asking. They simply want and need to have bigger pipes to serve their clientelle. You are wrong if you think having the companies answer to the government who takes taxpayer money to create organizations and pay for them with fees added to the bills of all the customers is better than simply having the company answer to the customers directly. You handily forget that the taxpayer money only enlarges government and hence the democommie voter base.
Having a lot of experience in telecommunications, I can tell you for a fact that service level agreements are in fact a major part of what gets fixed first in an outage or damaged plant that connects the public switched telephone network. Hospitals, high level clients who lose millions per hour and are contracted such as major airports, etc., MUST be considered before POTS plain old telephone service lines.

So, was there not any reason given for why this “study” has concluded this “fact” they have come up with? I cannot believe people actually fund such research without producing any complete studies. If this were a homework assignment from the days when I was in school, and I dare say that any middle school kid before common core could have come up with the same inaccurate conclusion, I would have gotten a D or an F. Consider it a science fair project even. Mostly only fat people take diet pills therefore diet pills make you fat, for example. Apart from those wishing to get some pseudo amphetamine like results from them, one would assume that those pills indeed make people fat unless you look at the study over time and see that starting weight is greater than ending weight. Only fat people have bariatric surgery therefore bariatric surgery makes you fat. That is insane. Only stupid people go to school because they are not as smart as those not in school… therefore school makes you stupid. The school case may indeed be accurate now in the case of common core.

It is time for the Baptists to replace this school’s leadership with people who still believe in the divinity of Christ.
There are different baptist groups out there. Its not just one whole "baptist convention."
There are Missionary Baptists, Southern Baptists, and Independent Baptists (I'm one of those. We don't follow a convention though. Each Independent Baptist church functions independently, hence the name.)
Anyways, I do agree leadership needs to be changed. That's the NBC's job if the college belongs to them.

HorizontallyChallengedPatriot is correct. I will say I would tell the child to hop down and it probably hurts his friend (I will never elevate a pet to being a family member, but where I come from if you shoot someone’s dog it is as serious as if you shot a family member… i.e. Marcus Luttrel and his righteous indignation over his dog DASY getting killed by those “animal lovers”).
Cute moments in family history, even ones where we might wince in pain are still moments, some we share gladly but indeed we need to be careful what we share on our FaceBook and Twitter or anywhere even protected storage on the internet. She should not have posted that one simply because Trig was standing on the dog. That does not change the fact the he ever did it because it is obvious he has and does. Some dogs like Newfoundlands are near big as a horse and could actually handle a 3 or 4 year old sitting on it but I would not encourage it at all. Those of you crying about the stress on the dog must really hate dogsledders despite everything they do for their dogs, how much they love them and the fact the dogs love to feel needed by HUMANS JUST LIKE HORSES CRAVE that usefulness. I miss the days when actual humans had the same desire to feely needed to perform work by and with other HUMANS instead of sitting on a couch and calculating the exchange rate EBT cards for drugs.

I find it hard to believe that it is a requirement to have an official fire truck in any parade anyway. This was a decision by parade organizers and those in political office only wanting to please the voter base and then the judges covering for their same friends in political office. There was nothing in this Constitution ignoring and destroying legal system that was going to protect these 2 Catholics. Now, If the 2 had been gay or atheist and forced to drive in a straight pride parade, traditional marriage celebration or a Christian parade, they would have never had their cases thrown out and been paid millions. From what I see, the 2 firefighters must equally be protected using the same argument that the left wing communists use even though they do not have to use the same argument.
January 2, 2015 at 1:30pm
Communist is only capitalized if it is in a title, is the name of a place or is at the beginning of a sentence. If used as a proper noun in a name for example. I wonder why anyone would actually think they were supposed to be capitalized anyway. That aside, comments sections of news websites are likely not graded for grammatical perfection and are not actually expected to be grammatically perfect, either. I may occasionally point out something that makes a comment ambiguous and maybe ask for clarity but I know I sometimes get going too fast… try to be careful and communicate effectively, know that I make mistakes but it does chap me when someone tries to correct others and belittle them and they themselves are actually way wrong.
January 2, 2015 at 1:14pm
That is exactly right.

The air intake of an F-104 is big enough to intake even him and send him out the back at an altitude of about 115,000 feet. Loved that Starfighter. I guess a C-5 engine would suffice, though.

Bob was twerking? If he and Juan had kissed that would have been almost funny. Heck it might have made Dish change their mind about dropping Fox mysteriously.
January 2, 2015 at 1:07pm
Dish has yet to explain reason enough to remove Fox and not remove Al Sharptonzeera.
 January 2, 2015 at 1:06pm
I can’t believe the majority of viewers wanted to see her kiss that disgusting slob. To me that just shows even Fox News polls are fixed by the left.

Royce did get beat but proved that even after it he always remained in the top 5 if not the top 2. Scrapping with Taktarov, Severn, and Shamrock seems they were his biggest contenders. Royce put Gracie Jiu Jitsu on the global map. Before that they were low lifes going into other traditional schools and challenging instructors in the middle of teaching students in their own classes. There was never a good answer to that kind of a challenge. It is something that the western world is not used to and has not adapted as part of the old school ways into our civilization. This was done in Japan, China, Korea, but was not something done in the U.S. Black Belt magazine had articles by folks like Bob Wall (O’Hara in the Bruce Lee movie Enter the Dragon who Lee told that bricks don’t hit back and had killed Lee’s sister or rather forced her to shiv herself). Anyway, I have a ton of respect for their achievements and talent but I find a conflict of honor in their history. I have been in martial arts for far too many years to have a different view since those who really want to know things inside and out must know their histories well.
January 2, 2015 at 11:56am
I do not hate the Gracies but I do have trouble respecting some of the ones involved in that kind of infantile and disrespectfully behavior towards fellow artists. In schools in Japan, Korea, and China you would have school disagreements and even many arguments on whose style was best and this kind of stuff went on for a long time and likely some still today. Ip Man’s biographies and even Jackie Chan’s stories tell a lot about them. However, in America, where we have a bit different melting pot of beliefs, ideologies and such with common respect to not inhibit freedoms of others or try to be a ruler over them, I think that difference may have been a factor in our not seeing eye to eye with an imperialist samurai descended Japan. Where I see plenty of good and honor there, I also see the differences. I think this Gracie did the right thing to these thugs. I respect their abilities and their proficiencies at martial grappling combat with a single opponent. Only a handful of others have shown as good and sometimes even better practitioners in styles such as shootfighting (Shamrock), wrestling (Dan Severn), Sambo (Oleg Taktarov), all were great fighters but I cannot speak a lot about their character from other activities.
I have studied Aikido, Beikiku Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Jeet Kune Do, Tae Kwon Do, Kenpo, Kempo, Shotokan, Wing Chun Kung Fu, and wrestling. I have been a full time instructor in some of these specifically for students who want to learn only “X”.
 January 2, 2015 at 11:39am
Having been in the martial arts community and being a big traditional buff of roots and origins and such, I recall some of the stories told of the original Judo stylists such as Judo Gene LaBelle who did in fact take down Bruce Lee who had in fact sparred with Chuck Norris not only in the movie Return of the Dragon but also in tournament style combat back in its infancy in this country when Ed Parker (Jeff Speakman’s teacher) was putting on major exhibitions brining out as many of the different styles of martial arts together as he could get. Anyway, the Gene LaBelle and Bruce Lee story is true and found in several of Bruce Lee’s books where he admits to mouthing off to Gene about the inferiority of grappling combat styles only to get put on his back side even as fast as Lee was. Slow motion cameras had to be used at the time of Enter the Dragon in order to be able to catch his movements well enough for screen showing. It truly is an amazing story. Gene was indeed a rather reserved and humble man that did end up teaching Lee afterwards. Lee also then began looking to boxing and even fencing in respect for rhythm and timing of attacks while working on completing the incompletable task of perfecting Jeet Kune Do. All this said, the stories I have heard of the Gracies before they made their fame with UFC were of them coming into schools and challenging instructors in front of their classes when class was in session. This was documented in Black Belt magazine.

@yiddishlion It seems that after your first sentence, the complete one, the rest of your comment is devoid of any truth. You sure came out of left field with a lot of bunk in a short space there. Not only are you trying to insult Mormons for no reason but you are insulting decent Jews by making them look bad with your username. I believe you to be a douchebag troll as NomoRinos states.
