    Still waiting for the Blaze headline that reads, “Beck goes bats**t crazy; alienates millions who made his career possible.”

    Two truths:

    1. Tens of thousands of Americans live and work in impoverished areas across the globe, in an effort to curb hunger, disease and misery, every single day.

    2. In most of the places where they do this, some form of totalitarian, leftist or other oppressive government is largely responsible for the misery and suffering.

    I would humbly submit that both at home and abroad, in terms of helping the needy, Christianity is the most active, “boots on the ground,” religion. Do you deny this?

    This is not a “victory” for the First Amendment, which quite clearly states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”


    What these activists miss, every single time, is that not only does this amendment exist,in plain language, but what does NOT exist is ANY mention of free or mandatory public education.

    Simply put, the prayer request board is quite clearly legal. Stealing tax dollars for public education? Yeah; not so much.

    Tell that to your favorite “humanist” and watch them spit and sputter.

    These are the same people with the “Coexist” bumper stickers on their Prius. Or the cutesy-pie, barf-inducing ones that say something like, “It will be a great day when the Air Force has to have a bake sale and schools are fully funded.”

    Again…NO mention of free or mandatory public education in the Constitution. Provide for common defense? Yeah. It’s in there.

    Agreed. I follow the housing market as well. Looks like pure fantasy to me!

  • [1] September 10, 2015 at 10:23pm

    Yeah…maybe not. I think this report is BS.

    The housing market in Ohio is recovering very well (in most areas). In addition, housing is very affordable when you compare incomes and housing costs.

    And as for Virginia? Are you friggin’ kidding me?! Yeah. Like I’d pay a half mil for a house that’s worth 200K anywhere else.

    P.S. Parents keep this case in mind re: Common Core. Your children have EVERY right to distribute literature about Common Core.

    Google Tinker v. Des Moines. Print out a copy of the decision. Send a copy to your school principal, board members and superintendent. Then tell them that little Johnny has every right to pass out opt-out forms to his classmates!

    Fortunately for the students — and ALL Americans — the action of the school district is patently illegal.

    See: “The Tinker Case.”

    In 1965, five students at an Iowa high school challenged the school’s decision to expel them because they wore black armbands, and later all-black clothing, in protest of the Viet Nam war.

    The students sued. They lost. And lost again. Then they won: At the US Supreme Court.

    This is an excerpt from a website that describes the case:

    “The Supreme Court ruled in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District that students and teachers continue to have the right of free speech and expression when they are at school. They do not ‘shed their constitutional rights at the school house gate,’ Judge Abe Fortas wrote in the Court’s ruling.”

    Bottom line: Political speech which in and of itself is not a disruption cannot be regulated by the school. The mere act of wearing an article of clothing (that is not lewd) or the mere act of possessing a flag — a political symbol, if you will — cannot be regulated by the government (schools). Someone needs to challenge this in court IMMEDIATELY. The school will lose.

    Name-calling? Is that the best you can do?

    Look at Carter’s record. He was an absolute disaster, whose domestic policy plunged us into a horrible recession, and whose foreign policy is the reason we have terrorism and islamic states today. Geez, do some objective research.

    Those, my clueless friend, are the facts. No amount of pathetic name-calling can change that.

  • [3] August 20, 2015 at 10:45pm


    Jimmy Carter, more than any other person alive today, is single-handedly responsible for the mess in the Middle East, and for the rise of terrorism and islamo-fascism.

    Carter’s inaction to support the Shah of Iran allowed the ayatollahs to come to power. Iran and much of the region was highly westernized before the Shah’s fall. Look it up.

    “We would have rescued them and I would have been re-elected.”
    B u l l s p i t*.
    For those of us who lived through the dismal Carter years, I can only surmise that he is fantasizing.
    Carter –the incumbent– lost to Reagan in a LANDSLIDE because he was a bumbling, clueless moron. The hostage situation was just icing on the cake of his horrible presidency. The rescue attempt was a pathetic last-ditch effort that cost the lives of dedicated servicemen.
    In addition, he is a virulent anti-semite who bashes Israel every chance he gets.
    I despise Jimmy Carter and pretty much everything he stands for. “He build houses for poor people.” Yeah, but how many hard-working Americans LOST their houses due to his disastrous economic policies?
    I wish death on no one. But I wish he would have quietly faded out of public view 35 years ago.

    Did you see Kasich in the debate?

    He lied his arse off about Common Core. My wife and I were completely dismayed by his response. Even while he was still babbling, we looked at each and said. “He’s lying!”

    John-Boy thought Jeb was a shoo-in for the nomination, and thought he would be a lock for the Veep spot — that’s why he has so steadfastly supported this horrible program.

  • [1] August 14, 2015 at 4:58pm

    …It means you will never be president, Jeb.

    Take your Common Core and shove up your sunshine state.

    I know they are normally “barky,” but we had a Shee-tzoo (spelling phonetically to get around censors!) that we adopted after its owners were in a terrible car accident. We loved that little guy, and he very rarely ever barked. I bet we’d had him for six months before we heard the first sound out of him.

    About five years later when we got a new Lab puppy (after a respectable mourning period for our previous Lab) all she wanted to do was play with him. But he was very old by then, and just wanted to sleep in his chair — that’s when he started to bark!

  • [10] August 14, 2015 at 4:45pm

    The story doesn’t go into enough detail about the ticket.

    Did the police investigate? Was she warned at least once? If she was issued a ticket at the sole request of the neighbor, that’s wrong. But if in fact she had been warned, and the barking was documented by police (not the neighbor), then the law’s the law.

    But my gut tells me the neighbor is a D-bag.

    “All day and all night?” Is that what the story said? I don’t think so. Plus, it appears she tried to accommodate the neighbor.

    At any given time, day or night, odds are that you can hear a dog barking pretty much anywhere you live. (Ours is an inside dog, so I am not referring to my own animal.) Sometimes people only let things bother them because they want to be bothered. My guess is, that’s the case here.

    The key is, she was there first. Like it or not, the “problem” was there before the complaining neighbor. Honestly, people need to consider these things before they buy a home. Ask any real estate agent: people move every day in this country because of neighbor problems. Caveat emptor!

    Years ago, some city folks moved into the house next to my parents. My folks had a good, well-behaved dog that would occasionally bark at night — which is what dogs do when something is out of the ordinary. Unless you’re an idiot, you realize that ‘s a natural response. But these neighbors would call at all hours of the night to complain. It truly was ridiculous, because it never lasted long. But some people are just jerks. (He was a corporate climber and they moved, so it kinda resolved itself. But they were real jerks about the whole situation.)

    Apparently there are a couple Blazers who need to rewatch National Lampoon’s “Animal House…

    The 17th amendment — and its more well-known sibling, the 16th — are glaring examples of early Progressive successes. Those amendments “fundamentally transformed” America.

    ONLY when we repeal both of these monstrosities will we enjoy true freedom and a government that is responsive to the people.

    I have said for years that EVERY American should visit Arlington National Cemetery. If it doesn’t humble you, and make you appreciative, there is something wrong with you.

    Angie’s List is not some two-bit blog where angry schlubs can post libelous reviews anonymously. That’s what Yelp is for.

    Were you an Angie’s List member? Probably not. That’s why they wouldn’t let you post a review. See, for someone to just go on their system and report being “ripped off” would be tantamount to libel/slander. Angie’s List is is a MEMBER-driven system of reviews of businesses that have been invited to list their verified info. They have a pretty well-defined system of handling bad reviews/complaints.

    No; I don’t work for them. A client of mine does very well with them and I handle all his marketing and paperwork. I get angry when people slam businesses about which they obviously know very little.

    Is their system perfect? NO! Show me one that is. And yes, Angie’s List is getting hit hard by competitors. And yes, their announcement is politically correct garbage.

    And as far as them “catering” to businesses, I could tell you a very compelling story that actually proves quite the opposite. Trust me when I tell you that paid members wield a lot of power at AL.

    If you were ripped off, you need to report it either to the police or prosecutor’s office, especially if you truly “feared for your life.”

  • [2] March 30, 2015 at 9:56pm

    “They pick a name from a Contractor who lists themselves.”

    NOT true. Do you have any idea the Angie’s List process really works? I do.

    You cannot list your business yourself. If someone reviews/recommends you, then they invite you to list your business.

    I am NOT an apologist for Angie’s List — I think their advertising is misleading in some respects. They say, “No one can pay to be on Angie’s List.” That’s true, but once you get reviewed they come after you for big bucks — BIG bucks.

    But they do, in fact, verify a great deal of info on the people who are listed. How do I know? I have filled out the paperwork for a client of mine who is doing very, very well on Angie’s List.

    Now, he’s spent a lot of money advertising with them, but he is attracting a very well-qualified clientele that is pre-qualifying themselves. From a marketing standpoint, it couldn’t be better. He’s been able to eliminate the tire-kickers almost completely (he offers a very expensive service).

    AL does not just “pick a name.” That’s just a ridiculous claim that shows your ignorance about AL.

    The reviews are absolutely the key. People really read them. And businesses live and die by them. But Angie’s List does NOT “pick a name” and give it to customers. Clients choose a business themselves, most often based on the business’ reviews.

    I don’t agree with everything they do; and this announcement smacks of knee-jerk political correctness. But your characterization of their business practices is wrong.
