Hah! 70′s kids – you got that right. From your moniker to your observations about the FB team, which frighteningly describes a generation – I agree. I was surprised at the vehemence on my son’s part when he accused this current crop of young people of being pantywaists – although his precise expression was something involving multiple expletives and female cats, as I recall.
I do believe that this cultural shift (from being rugged individualists to dependent crybabies) could be more of the fundamental transformation we heard about, part of the planned divide of our population. It is bizarre to observe and reminds me too much of dystopian science fiction future world coming into existence before our very eyes. It’s alarming that so few see it and even fewer speak out against it.
Like a lot of other people here in flyover country, I have my gun in one hand and my bible in the other. That,along with a heritage of determined fighters and a belief in my like-minded fellows, gives me hope in the face of this modern idiocy.

You get to pick your facts, Katie. But one fact is that if you throw out the major crime cities- like Chicago, Detroit, LA, Baltimore…. The U.S. statistics look entirely different. Most of us live in peace and harmony, without suffering from the issues you claim the rest of the world finds shocking.
This does not mean we don’t need to address these issues; it’s just that the vast majority of us are unaffected in our daily lives.
Your viewpoint is formed by a narrow lens. I know it is difficult to imagine the enormity and diversity of America. But I wish the rest of the world would try harder to envision the liberty we still enjoy here, and at what cost it comes.

We all live in our own little worlds. Apparently Tarantino has shown us his.
Which is not mine.
Not over yet, Travis. And I’d say Hillary clearly confessed that she knew it was an organized terror attack and NOT the video, yet never changed her narrative. That’s a pretty big deal.

Hcaz23, it’s the 600 requests for additional security. The way they heartlessly watched for hours. The fact that those who wanted to go to their aid were told to stand down. Hillary’s egregious lies to the very faces of the bereaved. Obama’s lies. Rice’s lies. And WHY?!? Gun-running? The election? To hide Hillary’s incompetence? Some other blackmail by one of these villains? This is beyond the pale and worse when Hillary blatantly lied, didn’t answer, mocked the questioners, disrespected our heroic dead. This era will go down in history as one of the darkest, the lowest, the saddest… And so many Americans haven’t theslightest clue of the tragedy being wreaked on our nation at the hands of these evil people.

Thanks for the insightful description, VRW. That’s exactly what I saw – a travesty.

Hillary is dang scary. I have never seen a more skilled politician – which means she never answers a question, lies effortlessly, has not a glimpse of a moral compass, her goals have nothing to do with what is best for the people, not a shred or even a single image showing a bit of warmth or humanity (or humility for that matter), is a wealthy celebrity without ever having actually contributed a single thing to the world or done anything admirable besides get elected /hold titles.
Hillary Clinton is the antithesis of what a woman should be, not only in her absence of worthwhile qualities but in her instigation of evil throughout the world.
And I thought Obama was the worst. Hah. Yesterday’s performance, along with the economy and world events, should turn any true thinkers into doomsday preppers – and that would be those who aren’t already prepared for the worst.
I do feel better for having said that!

Ah, but NO, ex. How could they do an investigation with only partial information? And I want to know WHY they lied. What could their reasons possibly be, to make up such a ridiculous story? 30,000 e-mails destroyed. Blumenthal’s influence. You’d have to have unbelievable naivety not to see that something is wrong with her story. Hillary is, at the very least, a. creepy, cold, hardhearted… Um person. She will eventually get what she deserves.

I do hope you’re right, Rick.
 October 22, 2015 at 7:52pm
We are now a banana republic, where the laws only apply to some people and not Hillary Clinton. I really can’t fathom how anyone would believe a damn thing she says.
 October 19, 2015 at 9:37pm
I swear that woman is wacko. I’m beginning to suspect some health issue is going to rear it’s ugly head at just the right time and Hillary will duck out of the spotlight never having faced the music for her nefarious crimes..
I win for cliches.
 October 19, 2015 at 9:22pm
There is so much more to this story. I can’t believe the media would give up on Benghazi without answers. We still don’t know where Obama was that night. It just stinks to high heaven and I am as irate today as I was when it happened. I’m afraid I’m going to become a senile old lady muttering about Hillary going to hell for her grievous sins.

Oops. Sorry. Grandma lacks technological proficiency and rambled too long.
Seems to me no one is making the most salient point, here. For a great number of Americans- of every color, nationality of origin, race, creed 91st cetera -WE DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR OUTWARD APPEARANCE. Most of us are so complex in heritage that to even claim one or two predominant ancestries is a stretch.
This is what makes me angry about Donzeal, Shawn, Black Lives Matter, and all the rest of it. You insist color doesn’t matter, but then you do everything you can to emphasize it, acting as if you deserve some special privilege.
Well, dang. How about “Asian Lives Matter?” They were conscripted to work on the rails out west, and interred unfairly during the war, and represented by dorky, squinty eyed cartoons with buck teeth and incomprehensible silly accents for DECADES. Humans make fun of EVERYBODY in case you hadn’t noticed. We make fun of ourselves. Who doesn’t laugh at “Buffy” and “Biff?” Who doesn’t like Urkel? Where’s a Clevelander that doesn’t bear some affection for that awful Chief Wahoo?
The reason Shaun King is such a target is not racism. It is ANTI- racism! Especially after Obama -who emphasized his biracial background to his advantage and then promptly forgot it when he was elected- people are suspicious now of motives. We want to know: Are you another who is trying to cash in on the Affirmative Action gravy train before people wise up and proclaim “Hey, Shaun! You’re just as good as anybody else, probably better than some. So you get no special privilege for
Are you trying to cheat the Justice Brothers out of their millions? Now that has to be racist.

I’m glad the mayor was called out on this by someone with a bit of celebrity. Corruption should never be tolerated, but in this day & age it’s the soup du jour.
 July 21, 2015 at 12:03pm
Hah! That’s the first thing I thought of, Hand! Well, DUH! Then, “thank you, Captain Obvious.”
July 20, 2015 at 11:56am
Thanks for the insight, Blazing. There is always more to the story.

What conservatives & progs usually debate is how O’s decisions will play out. Too many are clueless about the more immediate impact on the hearts and minds. I have liberal friends who think Obama, and the Pope, and Bernie Sanders — and SOCIALISM!!! are fantastic. They are anti-religion, anti-capitalist, anti-states’ rights, and, to a frightening degree, anti- traditional marriage and family. They haven’t a clue how dangerous this is. And they are so brain-washed by the media as to who conservatives really are.
The danger with Castro & Cuba is that Obama’s stupid olive branch immediately made Communism and Castro somehow acceptable. It will not help the Cuban people. It will not benefit the US population. There is nothing good about it.
Wait and see.
