I can’t imagine what you and your family are experiencing these last few days. You have my deepest sympathy and your daughter was in my heart at church today. I guess you and I differ on many things but most of all on a possible solution to this problem. You on the one hand want to make it almost impossible for most law abiding citizens to protect their family members from situations like the one your daughter faced. I, on the other hand, would be looking to find a way to use one of my guns to send my daughters killer where he belongs, HELL..

Congressman you lost your way, and therefore you need to regain your personal integrity and that starts by resigning immediately and rebuilding the family you tried to destroy. How can you make decisions every day that impact our family when you could not make the right decision when it came to your own family. Heal on your time card, not ours!!!!!.

If we are ever going to regain control of the governing process we must be willing to make the tough but morally correct choices. Radel has betrayed our trust and therefore he is unfit to lead in any way. He can talk about his problem all he wants but his problem is a personal one that all people of good spirit hopes he addresses. But he betrayed his family and his community and that requires him to step down so that a better man or woman can take his place. We need leaders of strong moral character and not the kind of man that Radel has demonstrated he is. Go and heal yourself and your family but we do not need public servants like you. We are in the state we are in because of men who lost their way. No more, we need men of better character and quality.

I believe in TEXAS and the people there. While it appears that justice in Texas has disappeared, I am certain it still burns in the hearts of it’s citizens. We will see proof of that if he is released.

I have been a life long Conservative who supported 90% of the Republicans who ran for office. All of that stopped today when I read this article because this information is very disturbing. I am not a wealthy person but have always financially supported republicans whose voting record indicated they supported the same values I have. Today that all ended, as I will never give one penny to the Republican Party (GOP) and I further promise to increase my financial support to those individuals or candidates who reflect Conservative values in all they do. I guess that means I am now a Tea Party Person!!!!!!
I guess Mr. Weisman and the County are afraid of having a million Muslims marching on there County Offices. Keep harassing this man for speaking his mind about something that is so obvious
it is shameful and you risk having some patriotic BIKERS visit your County offices. Or better yet,
perhaps Mr. Weisman should fear all of the people who agree with what this man said voting to replace Mr. Weisman’s superiors and have the newly elected people replace Mr. Weisman. Which do you think is the more realistic possibility Mr. Weisman?

Since this lady does not want to hear from this child, identify her if possible and organize as a community to shun her for a year or two. Perhaps that will make her appreciate any sound from another person.
That's why I loathe mobs. They attract stupid people.

I wonder if the First Lady has really thought this through. Here is why I ask this question. Suppose Chicago, her beloved city, was to adopt this suggestion and encourage parents to allow their children to participate in this program. Can you imagine what this program would do to their already horrific statistics of young people being killed on the cities streets. GOOD JOB MICHELLE>

Perhaps the First Lady is not thinking to clearly about the possible consequences for her beloved Chicago if they, in their infinite wisdom, adopted this program. The murder rate of their young people would be even higher. GOOD JOB MICHELLE

That is a small child on the sofa and I believe it is her daughter (look at the picture).

Don’t laugh everyone!!!! Six months from now Rachel will have her own “Reality Show “

A year ago I thought you were a man with great integrity. This is a representative form of government which means you were trusted enough by your fellow citizens in Florida that they selected you to represent them in Washington. Now, I know you are not the man I thought you were because if you were that man, once you broke your trust with your fellow Floridians you would RESIGN FROM YOUR OFFICE IMMEDIATELY. That sir, is what a man of great integrity would do. I guess I was wrong and you are not that man.

For the last two years I have spent money supporting his candidacy. I spent months speaking with anyone in FL who would listen to me about how special this young man was and how he was the future for fair minded people who wanted make our country stronger and a better reflection of who we really are. He lied to all of us. That makes you a liar for life Marco. Beck said you were “dead to him”, it is not that simple for me. I promise to put as much energy in defeating you or recalling you as I did to try and get you elected. Senator you will not be dead to me until you are out of office or defeated in all future elections. You are a man without honor and your word is not your bond and therefore you are not worthy of public trust. Sad to say Charlie Crist was a better choice because at least you knew what you were getting with him.

The POTUS would describe this as another incident of the “police acting stupidly”. Nothing to see here.

It is easy to blame the mother for this but we as a society have to accept alot of the responsibility for what happened to this child and all of the other child victims of these terrible crimes. We have devalued the lives of our children along time ago when we did not demand lethal punishment for these preditors and removal from the bench for any judge who coddles these people with light sentences or early release. If we do not demand a punishment that would end this monsters life and protect future children from ging through the same experience. Then we, like this mother, have failed out children. You kill a child you die, and you die a horrible, and painful death!!!!! The word will spread.

God Bless you Matt. It is nice to see men of conscious take a stand for what he believes. Matt, perhaps you should take a page from the book of John Runyan (former Phila. Eagles lineman) who was elected to Congress a year or so ago as a Republican. With you education in economics and your background as a competitor and winner, I am sure there is a place for you in Washington.

It was a great day for the TeaParty and for all patriots and people who love this country. Some inormed and committed fellow patriots spoke with great dignity and grace about what we stand for and what we expect from our leaders. America should listen to these people and urge them to get involved in the political process and consider running for office. BRAVO – BRAVO

Progressives and most Democrats want us to believe that we who support Second Amendment Rights are alone in this fight. Stories like this need to be shared celebrated. Keep up the good work “Blaze” and keep these stories coming. Sooner of later there is going to be a tally taken and I beleive we who support the Second Amendment are the overwhelming majority. I encourage the NRA to join “The Blaze” and do more to get these stories out to the general public.

This coach understands that sports is a learning experience for young adults as they advance to adulthood. He gave them a life lesson that is valuable and enduring. I would gladly allow this man
to work with my grandchildren and know that they are in good hands.
