    I am not a trump supporter…

    But this is something I really have to call Fox News, Glenn, and everyone out on, because I found myself thinking this during the debate.

    Okay Yes, so the EPAs budget is only 8 billion, but I know Glenn has gone on entire monologues about the cost of the EPAs regulations…. so while the 8 Billion is only about 1.5% of the budget, the “hidden costs are in the tens if not hundreds of billions…and the Dept. of Education. I really don’t need to go on about how that needs to go do I??
    I promise you every other candidate on that stage agreees with the gutting of those two agencies

    With an luck the Army will authorize a “parade rest” so soldiers can honor her (she cant receive an official honor guard), but she can have a flag draped over her casket and have a military presence at her funeral (if her family wishes so)

    This woman touched the lives of literally tens of thousands of soldiers, she was a genuine and decent person, and she will be missed

    This appears to be a set up…..
    if you watch closely, the man never kicks her.. he steps near her head..but no contact

    Im sorry, but this is ridiculous. I am a fan of the show (while admittedly its content is NOT for everyone) the writing is smart, funny, and H Jon Benjamin is prob my favorite voice actor (some of his best work is Archer or Coach McGuirk)

    But for the show to “change itself” because of the real world ISIS is ludicrous… no fan of the show.. or any rational person is going to confuse the two or believe that the cartoon has anything to do with the terrorist organization… its just a very unfortunate (don’t want to offend anyone) move by the writers and producers and I wish they would rethink it,

    As someone from Cleveland… (who never once cared for Lebron– even before he quit in OUR playoffs and left the city) his having cramps is just typical and perfect “James” .. of course its my contention that the baby was suffering from cramps of another sort altogether…. and thats why he had to leave the game ^ ^

    Never mind my previous comment..after watching it several more times..I realize my eyes were playing tricks on me… (Since Im unable to edit my comment to reflect this.. I’ll simply post a retraction)

    Even if it is a hoax… it could be done for the “right” reasons… if the story gets out… then people who normally might not help someone they see… could be willing to do so in the hopes that the person they “help” (even if its for a selfish reason: they hope that homeless man is really a wealthy one) so there is some good that comes out of this… charity…even if its rooted in personal selfishness…

    on that same token… that could be the motive of the real benefactor even if the story is TRUE… he knows the story would get out… and (he knows human nature) so the same result could happen.. and even if he isnt there… his goal of inspiring (tricking) people to be more charitable would be fulfilled.

    I hope everyone here has a very Merry Christmas :)

    Wouldn’t the easiest thing to do is simply compare the sail registration numbers of the boat in the above image with the one owned by Kerry? If they match then he was most likely on the water at that time.

    Although in def of Secretary of State Kerry (a phrase I don’t like saying) with communication technologies being what they are, he could have easily been in constant communication with the WH and his counterparts in Egypt while sailing. (lets be fair we have made the same complaints about the current administration not using said technologies and spending millions of dollars on security and travel to attend overseas conferences when a secure video line from his office would have sufficed)

    so lets give him the benefit of the doubt he was actually doing his job… (but call him out on his lies and denials if he says he wasnt there at all; if it can be proven he was)

    Maybe its just the “Clevelander” in me…. but every story about Lebron annoys me; (yes, I like others prob laughed and thought of a massive head injury to that man would be an improvement)… but beyond that what really bothers me is his massive ego…

    talking about he moved down there just so he could be in a parade… he thinks he is the center of the world… when in reality he is just a spoiled punk who plays a game…

    That was my thought exactly…. I mean its nice that her wish came true (and she was able to meet him) but really..those aren’t vip seats….. the only way you could be further away would be to watch the concert on youtube ^^

    Just replying to my own comment… (I did something I really dislike in others— posting without reading the whole article; I just read the first paragraph and thought.. this is prob. a joke), but after deciding to actually read the whole article, which is quite interesting in and of itself, and the fact that this story is not “new”.. I take back my comment…”

    guess.. Im the “April Fool” :P

    While its an interesting story.. its length and the ‘day of publication” lead me to wonder… perhaps The Blaze staff are having a little fun at our expense ^^…

    Nice story.. and there are similar cases from all around the world

    Like the story of Hachiko ( a dog in Japan in the 30′s who went to the train station every day for years… wait for his master to come home from work)

    Im curious does anyone have (or know where you can find) a more detailed listing of the precinct voting totals?

    I live in one of those pure blue areas.. and.Id like to know if one of those 0 vote areas is my precinct because that means MY vote as well as those of my family (and friends) were not counted…

    If there is a list please let me know…

    (Ill check back in a short while to see if anyone replies)

    While I disagree with easily 90% of what the “Occupiers” hold up as thier ideologies.. I think most here would agree on two things.. the first, (and this point has been made before–so I wont elaborate greatly is the problem with gov’t subsidies of any business or organization) ..the second and far more important is the fact that with the exception of certian segments of the population… NOBODY.. is happy with thier choice…again…. The Republicans have no reason to be excited about Mitt Romney… and the Tea Party even less so… and the Left wing of the Democrats are clearly unhappy with Pres. Obama…. So while the call to anarchy is foolishness of the highest caliber… bieng frustrated to the point of perfering nobady over the choices we have is certianly understandable.

    @ Robert,

    Thank you for your rational response to this issue.
    I would like to say Im astonished at the way people are behaving and the comments they are leaving..but sadly the internet teaches us to quickly become jaded to any idea of decency on any public forum.

    Yes, its fine to disagree with his politics (I know I did) but the man was a talented actor who was an American Icon, and who never harmed anyone. he should be remembered for his work, and mourned for the life that was lost…

    Im glad at least someone here is able to see that.

    Have a good day and Happy 4th of July

    For anyone thinking he went too far…I have two points to make….

    1) On a more humanitarian level (which liberals love to invoke as a means of “letting her stay” a 6 year old girl with no known family moving into the mid west can have only one realistic destination…Sex Slavery. The fact that she may actually be returned to her country of origin and possibly reunited with some family member is the best thing that could have happened to her.

    2) In spite of any humanitarian arguments… she along with all the other immigrants were violating the laws of this nation…and though some may say Im over reaching here…there presence is n fact a breach of our national Sovereignty.

    I say Good for him…

    I hope he gets another thousand 6 year olds (for both those reasons)

  • April 30, 2012 at 7:27pm

    WOW… who ever it was that said they hope Pres. Obama gets assisnated.. I really pity you. I am far from a fan of his policies.. but I would never wish that one him. First… he is our President.. and Im sure you would go crazy if someone said that aboiut George W. Bush (and I knew people that did)

    Secondly.. putting aside the fact that we should never wish that upon anyone…. The resulting social upheaval that would occur should make everyone no matter what your ideology (save maybe the anarchists) desperately wish that not happen…

    but.. as to the original point of my posting.. What I find funny about Farrakhans argument is apparently how little he knows about history…

  • April 12, 2012 at 11:21pm

    While I agree with the judge’s ruling that the person was in contempt of court.. I disagree with the idea of a law being passed. (and while its really not surprising the bill was put forth by a democrat, I would not be shocked if a similar bill is put forward by a republican)… My problem is that…the gov’t (municipal, state or federal, has no business passing a law that punishes……well.idiocy….

    As I get older(and more informed) I realize that one of the biggest problems with our country is the almost overwhelming level of laws and regulations we are confronted with. (And I am by no means an Anarchist) rather I think that personal liberty must be paramount. If people want to look like fools and wear the pants below their knees…what business is it of the government . Not only will this legislation NOT change the culture (that is up to the individual and the family to instill proper values__) but in my opinion its only “true” purpose is to act as a thinly veiled revenue stream…

    Saggy pants are not an affront to any existing standard of decency…. they aren’t harmful to others, and they certainly are not warrant the attention of our legislators.. all they do is make those that wear them look like the fools that they are…

    Hopefully this bill will fail on the statehouse floor… and we can put our attention to more important matters.
