You don’t know what in the heck you’re talking about. You’ve obviously never lived in the Japanese culture. It’s basically a watered down version of communism. It’s called the “caste system”. Ever heard of it? Oh ya, our wonderful brothers in England liked that type of society where a few were the only ones actually free to follow the path they want to follow while they told the rest of their neighbors how they should live hence our Independence from such a tyrannical existence.
That being said the Japanese have been able to secure more of their culture of personal responsibility and love for life than we have. Many of them think beyond themselves in every action they take. In essence, yes they are more spiritual than we are in this nation and consequently don’t desire as often as our nation does to kill each other.

Well here’s my argument LibertarianSocialist on your point and why Donna’s comparison is a very good one.
You yourself point out that people go through extensive training in order to operate a vehicle yet cars STILL kill more people than guns every year. Doesn’t that prove that more regulation doesn’t equal less killings with a gun? It my prevent some accidental shootings but gun training, registration, licensing, etc. etc. is not going to stop the murderer from murdering by using their gun OR stealing someone else’s to kill someone with.

You got it spot on Donna. Thank you for your words.
I do have one disagreement though and that’s the part of your article where you threw abortion into the mix of gun laws, prohibition, and other activities that should be “regulated” rather than outlawed. Abortion is just a fancy word for the murder of an unborn child. It’s murder nonetheless no matter what fancy word you put on it. This is one activity that should be outlawed just as we outlaw murder of a person after they’re born. We don’t “regulate” murder so why should abortion be any different? Yes there will be women who abort their babies even after it is outlawed just like people kill other people even though it’s outlawed but those women should be prosecuted for murder if they are discovered to have committed an abortion along with the person who helped them do it.
Point well taken. Perhaps I'm too much of a realist where I look at regulating the legal abortions we already have rather than outlawing abortion altogether (I think in America going forward, that horse is already out of the barn).

I have nothing against Asians or anything like that but a lot of this bed bug problem stems from Asian tourists coming to the U.S. for vacation. Their clothes and luggage are infested with bed bugs. My family owns a resort in a small town where tourism is the principle industry. One week about 50 tour buses rolled into town all filled with Asians. The next week every single hotel in that town had bed bugs. It was absolutely disgusting. It was so bad that many of the resorts and hotels contacted these travel companies and online booking sites to tell them to stop booking and marketing their hotels with Asian travel companies because they won’t accept them into their rooms anymore.
We have been several times to China and visited many cities and NO bedbugs, so please don't include the Chinese because on the whole they are VERY CLEAN, and I also studied there and our very inexpensive 3rd class hotels (in reality all hotels in China are 3rd class but say 5th class so you are ignorant to pay more thinking you are getting more - no way, Jose) and never bedbugs, filth or anything else. Air conditioning and electric kettle so you can add peroxide (SSI) and purify water for the next day.
Lived and traveled in Asia (Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan) since 1991, never encountered bed bugs.

What are you talking about? Michael Oher had been in the league for awhile already when that movie came out.
As far as Oher’s comments go, I don’t know what he’s talking about. He’s a lineman. He’s never going to be in the spotlight or be considered a “superstar”. I don’t know who is calling him a “bust”. His skill-set as a lineman isn’t flashy or dynamic. It’s a subtle, brute athleticism that is only respected by his teammate and those who’ve played the position before.

Are you kidding me? The kid is healthy besides being slower mentally than other kids. He’s not being abused or malnourished. Even if they hadn’t seen any doctors this is no reason to take a kid away from his parents!

Do you even know what a “cult” is? I also find it ironic when people who preach about the “rapture” turn around and start pointing fingers at other believers in Christ and calling them cults. The word “rapture” isn’t even found in the Bible. It’s completely made up yet here you are blindly following a false premise created by man to the point where you’re condemning your brothers who are faithfully following the example of Jesus Christ.

You people have no idea. You throw around the word “persecution” like it’s only a slight inconvenience. Go study Jewish history. Not just the surface of their history. Go dig into the the economic and political histories of the respective countries they were living in leading up to each Jewish holocaust. To your horror you’ll see a picture almost identical to the atmosphere we’re facing now with Christian values and ideals being attacked. It wasn’t the Jew that was targeted in these holocausts it was the ideology that the Jews had. People ostracized the Jews for what they believed in. They took it to a level where they could actually make entire populations believe that it was the beliefs of Jewish people that were destroying their countries and if they didn’t get rid of those ideas then they would perish. THAT’S HOW YOU KILL 11 MILLION PEOPLE!!!
Ladies and gentlemen Christianity will be the next holocaust. We don’t even comprehend what persecution looks like. To the rest of the world the destruction of the Christian ideology will be a righteous cause to “bring peace, prosperity, and justice back to the world”.
HOW THE NAZIS TOOK OVER GERMANY
1. Tapped into the depression and despair of unemployed men who had been defeated in WW1. Telling them that others were aggressors and they were the victims. So they fostered a huge victim mentality among the unemployed male populace.
2. Began to form a very tight knit group of men who believed in a Master Race of Supermen. Forming a new society of men who patterned themselves after Sparta, Thebes and Crete.
3. Began to project an image of a certain type of warrior male superiority. Military and police force while at the same time denigrating women and children. Procreation was only useful into producing male children who could then be militarized forming more ranks of Military Supermen. Women who possessed strong constitutions were used to birth male babies. Female babies aborted. Weak females and weak males exterminated. Weak children exterminated. The disabled we're exterminated. The elderly. Abortion, selective breeding, euthanasia.
4. Young boys were sexualized by older males cementing their life long loyalty and cementing their idea of an idealized male. Homosexual. Misogynist. Loyal to a corps of men. This was done in the
Boy Scouts which originated in Germany. Older males took younger males out to the woods for military training and sexual bonding. Every concept of what it meant to be a male which enforced in mandatory public schooling. Females were indoctrinated as well to "do their duty" and produce males for the Master Race and o
Well Said one.darkine.....And how we stand for what we believe will define who we are. We were told times such as this would come. Why are we not expecting this? This is not a test..This is the REAL THING and we must stand for what we believe. God created Man and Women and he made the women for Man. Sorry Women, but we were made to be a helpmate to our men. Note: That does not mean man can run over a women...But, he did not make Man and a man. PERIOD

Seriously. Had this happened in my city I would have immediately taken up a position on the roof and given a few cheek shots to discourage these animals. If that didn’t work THEN I would have piled up bodies of every person using an object as a weapon.

Exactly. The U.S. has been involved in U.N. nuke talks in order to stop any other country from enacting sanctions. Now the U.S. is sending warships to escort arms and missiles to protect Iran’s assets. This past year I have come to the realization that Obama truly is a muslim man. His entire intentions of getting involved in the U.S. government was to literally weaken it so HIS PEOPLE could bring islam to the world once and for all.

Thank you for the correction. Note this correction Blaze journalists: When speaking in turns of chronology you reference to things that are older as “earlier” and things that are younger as “later”. A third grader would know this…

I thought the whole purpose of the Tea Party was to hold representatives accountable? What is the Tea Party except another ridiculous political party if everyone has to support their elected representatives even when they propose bad policies? Anything outside of a flat-tax is a betrayal to the Tea Party’s idea of tax law. Make it a flat-tax. We give more money to the people that actually grow the economy, we force the government to shut down the IRS along with other non-essential government agencies; saving us a considerable amount of money, and we pave the way for our nation to pay back our debt. Rubio has gotten too comfortable with his new power. MAKE HIM ACCOUNTABLE!!!

Pretty much actually. They were a very primitive culture when Captain Cook landed on their shores. Yet most of the locals there now are still ticked off that “whites” “invaded” their land and eventually annexed it as a state. For some reason they believe the way of life there before the “white man” was AMAZING. Obviously the culture had some really good qualities that all of us can learn from and adopt but they’ve just nit-picked at their past and don’t want to look at any of the flaws of their ancestor’s life like open-marriages, cannibalism, human sacrificing, very high infant mortality rate, subjugation to a king, lice, fleas… A lot of the Christian missionaries that came to the islands once it was discovered just left after a week or two because the conditions were just too much for them to handle and they felt the people were a lost cause. I’m glad some of them kept at it because it has blessed the people of polynesia so much. I just wish more of them could see that and stop living their lives like victims.

How many things have blown up in Obama’s face already? Has it made a difference? We all know the answer to that. He blames the consequences of his actions on someone else or refuses to accept the reality of the consequences. He has all of his friends in power next to him, he has an army of media trained to defend him at all costs, and he has over half the population of the U.S. brainwashed to think he is god. No my friend, there is no stopping him. We’ve been trying for over six years now. Not even our “GREAT TEA PARTY CANDIDATES” who promised to change Washington have done a single thing to stop him. We are on our own. Prepare your home and your community. That is all you can do at this point.
the truth of the matter is, it is Obama that is the problem. It is the inaction and cowardice of both the republican party (who were elected to handle this) and the apathy of the American people for allowing the government to get this far out of balance. Not a single lead sandwich delivered for the most blatant traitor in American History

What I’m sick and tired of is Israel waiting for it to happen. Not to mention Saudi Arabia. If both of these nations fear for the future of their nations after Iran gets nuclear weapons then why aren’t they putting a stop to this? Of course I think after these negotiations are over that will be their last bastion of hope and they’ll be forced to take action at that point. I can sort of understand them holding out this long to see if the U.S. would come to our senses and do something about the whole problem. These failed negotiations will be the final nail in the coffin.
While I understand your thoughts I believe it is simply not the appointed time and by that I mean God's appointed time. When/if the Israelis bomb Iran that will ignite the world with the world coming down soundly against Israel.
It won't be pretty but eventually it will happen and Israel will survive.

Seriously. This whole thing was brought on by a rumor??? I mean are these people brain-dead? Also, if there was no warrant for them to enter the house and/or take the child these guys should be in jail already!

If CPS ever forced their way into my house or that of my family’s the result would lead to a large exodus of CPS workers. Not to mention local sheriff offices everywhere would think twice before getting involved in their illegal activities.

Seriously the guy just gunned it as hard as he could to shoot a gab between two cars who could move at any second! Completely reckless. I hope his insurance nails him for it.

The car should have been the one cited by the police. But the insurance companies will blame both the car and the bike for the accident.
