I am a decent person. I believe that as the gays have their rights, so do the cake bakers. I find it so strange that someone of any gender wants to destroy someone else;s life over the difference of opinion. I am a decent person. I think marriage is between a man and a woman. I am a decent person. I do not hold ill will towards gays. Just don’t cram it down my throat. I am still a decent person.

You know, we should all stand with these people and Mr. James. Even if you don’t believe in God, we muist stand with them. We are losing our rights daily and this will affect everyone, I mean everyone. Please wake up and take a stand. Don’t hide your support for someone’s rights because you have different ideas. Your ideas will be taken as different next time, and you will be the one be treated as a criminal of sorts. Please call your representatives, senators, etc., and tell them one more time that they are done. They have let us down for the last time. Tell them you better hear form them on representing all of us and all of our rights. We are losing the internet today. Do you hear me? Losing the internet today. You are going to be paying for millions of people who are here illegally and so many more to come. How much can you continue to pay? I cannot. I just don’t have it to pay for more free rides. Stand up. Call and tell them, do something to make people hear your voices. God forgive us for letting our beautiful country go to hell. We have let you down and please find it someway to forgive us again for being so selfish and foolish. I hate to speak ill of the office of the President of the United States, but we as a country screwed up when we were fooled by someone who used smooth talk and a fake love for this country to turn it into a socialist utopia. I did not vote for him, but I too have failed at being a good keeper of this America. Forgive me.

I believe this woman wants her child to rise above what seems the norm for so many black children. And unfortunately it is has become the norm for many white children. I also believe God made butts to bust. No arm beating, no head hitting, no slapping hard across the face, no back whipping or any other such acts to me are acceptable. I do believe that butt cheeks were specifically designed by God to “spank” in order to make a point. Sometimes that is all it takes. I have two sons and I spanked the oldest one only one time. Never had to do it again. He is amazing and he respected me as I did him growing up. The youngest one got butt busted a couple of times, once from me and once from his gran and after that it was not necessary. There was no beating, no bruising, no marks, just a little wake up call as to whom was in charge. They are two of the most wonderful people on the planet. And while this lady went about it in the wrong way, in my eyes, I feel like she may be trying to do the right thing and doesn’t know how to use the right actions. I actually think the shirt is correct about social garbage being everything kids think about and waste their time on text and cell phones. We need more family time and respect for each other. Talk about the future with your children. Let them know how tough it will be without a good education, correct grammar and spelling and speech. We need to raise our children with pride so they don’t wind up on the government teat.

I think it would be very important to kkeep a journal of all this information. I truly believe that after he is out of the White House, we shall all learn his true feelings and his history will then show up all over the internet and everyone shall learn where his loyalties have been all along. We shall learn of his college classes and grades and who paid for his college. We shall learn that he is still loyal to Jeremiah
Wright and to his Islamic background. Mr. Giuliani is SO CORRECT. Unfortunately, this President does not love the America that has helped so many people. He resents her, he wishes her to fall. If that is unkind or hard to hear, so be it. We shall all learn in time. I feel so embarrassed and sad that someone that feels this way about such a wonderful country, could ever be President and reside in our White House. He plays the race card as well as anyone ever has. It is such a shame, as he had the chance to make things so much better. God forgive him and forgive us for falling for his falsehoods and deceit. God bless America, please, as we have surely let her down. I hope we get the chance to make it right.

When was this? I remember his ring being gone? I know Ramadan is in June-July. I want to look up the pictures during that time. Thanks for the notice. I feel the same.

I have ridden all my life. You get on the left side. That is always the way you get on the horse and the way you get off the horse. Now, if you are a roper, you can bail off the right side to avoid having to go under the rope. Trust me. This is correct. God bless America and Merry Christmas!!!!

How come plastic Nancy knew him and denied it? Obama says he didn’t work on obamacare, but every thing seems to point to him working on it. How many lies do they keep getting away with? Why doesn’t an honest Republican look into this in detail? I am going to contact my congressman and my senator as they are very decent people and I want everyone to know this is how the President of the United States pushed this pathetic excuse for healthcare through. I am embarrassed that it happened, but I know I didn’t want it and my representatives and senators didn’t vote for it. I am so tired of being called racist because I so dislike all the horrible things this President and these bleeding heart touchy-feely lefties have done to America. Gruber is right though, we have become complacent and stupid and we have to speak up and ask our representatives to honor our votes and do as they said they would when we elected them. No amnesty, follow our immigration laws, repeal obamacare and stop spending money on the EPA, DEPT OF ED. and all of the wasteful programs that never fix anything. God bless America.
 November 15, 2014 at 10:09am
This is no different than Jonathan Gruber and Obamacare. The American people just showed their naïveté and their stupidity again by letting this happen. I hate saying this, but THEY hate us. Figure it out. You cannot make friends with people who lie to trick you into thinking they are good and decent people. I will say it again. They hate us. We are infidels. End of story. We will be sorry for this failure to use the brain God gave us. Please forgive us. They do not worship our God and we just helped them slap our God right in the face.. When will we wake up and get the touchy feely people to understand that we can’t be friends with everyone. It just doesn’t work hat way. Oh my.
 November 12, 2014 at 10:34am
We can only hope to be forgiven for all the stupidity that we wear as political correctness. I personally don’t believe in PC as it is just a way to take away Americans rights. We know how to be good and decent and with that honest. We don’t have to be mean, but honest. We better wake up and soon. Our America that we should protect is going to fall. God help us all.
 November 7, 2014 at 12:25pm
Thank you Matt Walsh. Your article seems fair and honest. I am very glad you are writing for the Blaze and that we have access to easily to read your work. I have two sons that are I am sure around your age and I am very proud of them as they are very good and decent Americans and citizens. They had rules. They also had choices that they made themselves, but when they were you, those choices were guided by right and wrong. It works!!!! Thank you again and keep pen in hand. You are not only logical, but normal. What a breath of fresh air—normal!!!!!! It is so nice to discuss life with someone who isn’t always trying to find themselves. You appear to be grounded, yet, open and very fair. Excellent. God bless you.

It is like “global warming” now being called “climate change.” One thing for sure is the left will always have a reason to change the meaning of any word that does not fit their touchy feely agenda. States that vote overwhelmingly to disapprove of so called “gay marriage” should not have an un-elected Judge make such a decision. That in itself should tell us how far we have fallen. Political correctness will destroy the America that we should have been protecting and it breaks my heart to see it happen. This whole thing is not about marriage. It is about destroying the traditional family unit and the rest is all about control and money. I don’t have anything against gays, but it is a sad day when I have to give up all my rights to make a handful of people think they are so special that they are the only ones who matter.
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
You keep quoting the 14th Amendment which refers specifically and only to the Bill of Rights. Show us where in the Bill of Rights where marriage is defined.
Prove that someone has "deprived" you of life, liberty, or property by not granting you a certificate that says you are legally married in the eyes of the State? Have they deprived you of the ability to sleep with and commit sex acts with your chosen partner? Have they taken away your house or car because of it? Have they locked you up in jail or stopped you from holding a job, traveling where you want, eating where you want, anything??
Can you point to ONE...just ONE....court case that the jury rolled against a defendant or for a plaintiff BECAUSE of sexual orientation? Just ONE! Did the DA or Police fail to prosecute or respond to a crime until AFTER sexual orientation was verified??
The answer to all of these questions is of course NO...if prejudice is found, then deal with it on a 1 to 1 case....address the SPECIFIC prejudice..
Being married or not in the eyes of the State does NOT deprive you of life, liberty, or property without due process because despite what the SCOTUS said, Marriage, like Driving and a WHOLE host of other things, are NOT RIGHTS but social constructs and privileges allowed for the functioning of SOCIETY...
You can not legislate Morality, Ethics, or Human Behavior...those that try are nothing but BOLD FACE TYRANTS or just plain azes...either way...they should be avoided at all costs and shunned from logical, reasoning society members...
Baron_Doom: "Only to the Bill of Rights?" There is a mountain of case-law that proves you totally wrong.

Gay marriage is gay marriage—–not “marriage.”

If only this kind of crime would get to the real public. The media won’t show it because they wear their white guilt as a blanket of shame. I owe no black person or any other person anything for what happened hundreds of years ago. The minorities have more opportunity than any white person but they piss it away. That is not anyone’s fault but their own. I never had a racist bone in my body, but thanks to scumbag Holder I’m afraid my belly is full. I would never mistreat anyone, but “animals” like these would see my permitted protection. And yes, I said animals. Quit spending time watching you tube. It rots your brain. Read Alexis de’Tocqueville instead. Read “America Alone”by Mark Steyn. God forgive us for what we have done to our country.

You say that George W. Bush lied about WMD to go to Iraq. I think you should investigate a little further and you will find there were weapons and they have since been found. They were moved and hidden but were found and they were real. I saw the pictures and read all the detail. Isis found them in June 2014 in the al-Muthanna mega-facility 60 miles north of Baghdad. There were hundreds of tons of deadly poisons including mustard gas and sarin. Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons in 1980-1988. I certainly was not always happy with George Bush, especially on the NEA and amnesty, but with the information he had, he was not wrong on WMD. Hillary Clinton left her so-called great friend and three other Americans hung out like a side of beef. She is not and will never be worthy of being in any position of authority again with the US administration. Sadly, Benghazi is not the worst of what she has done. I will not even begin to discuss how pathetic this administration has been. This man in office now has nothing but disdain for our country. He is doing all he can to tear us apart and with the racist Eric Holder is doing a bang up job. God, please forgive us for what we have done to this wonderful country.
It is amazing the effect that right wing propaganda can have on one's perception of reality...
Yes and Saddam got the gas from the USA to use against Iran.
Have you heard yet that the "Free Syrian army has already signed a non-aggression pact with ISIS as well as selling arms to them. Yah we ignore the weapon being moved into the middle east via Libya and we directly arm and train our enemys.
Its like here take this gun and kill me. I will teach you how to load it and pull the trigger.
Meanwhile wanting to disarm our US citizens.
Your right on point !

I am very sorry for Robin Williams family. But why don’t we spend this kind of time on the soldiers that die of suicide. And what about the Christians in Iraq etc that are being buried alive, having their heads cut off and so many other horrible things. God rest his soul, but let’s take the same time and courtesy for these other souls.

I am very sorry about Robin Williams. But let us not forget the huge number of soldiers we lose to suicide. And what about the Christians being buried alive in Iraq

First of all, these people were stressed to the max over this adopted daughter as evidently they had spent a fortune on her trying to help her. (They adopted three children.) The help was not working, so they thought tough love might and took her to the shelter to try to wake her up. I am sure many of us have wondered what to do in this situation and have tried many things. The choice the father (and mother) made was absolutely wrong–no question there. But just because these people were police officers does not mean they did any of this on police time. They were off duty and they were in their own vehicle and a police service weapon was not used. My point is, don’t lump distraught parents in with all the police officers of Tulsa. This was a family problem for some time and had nothing to do with Tulsa Police. Had this man been a sanitation worker or a street worker, it would just be another horrible situation in a family that should not have happened. Post the story, but don’t attach it to being a police officer. Some are bad, but remember how it feels to be called a racist and you are not racist because you don’t like what this President does. It sucks and it gets old. So separate this situation from this families occupation. They were not related. Sadly, this family is now in ruins and it is such a tragedy for both sides.
"But just because these people were police officers does not mean they did any of this on police time. They were off duty and they were in their own vehicle and a police service weapon was not used."
Ohhh, I see, since they were off the clock, in their own car and used their own gun we shouldn't be concerned over the fact that they are both police officers. They get a special dispensation because of those facts. If anybody in the world should know better, it should be those two. I understand there were family problems but in as much the girl is now eighteen I think breaking all ties with her would have been preferable to murder.
i was a pretty rotten teen, my parents used tough love on me, but they never pulled a gun on me or shot any of my friends/boyfriends (or fired at me for that matter). and yes, it has everything to do with police, who are entrusted to serve and protect and to NOT shoot a young man who is dating your daughter that is giving you grief. get real and stop playing devils advocate.
I agree on not blaming the whole police dept for something that was done on someone's off time, HOWEVER, they had THESE people out in public dealing with civilians....look at how aggressive and over the top these people obviously are. This is a problem and a problem that is not unique. It is hard to be a police officer, I get that, but only the most stable, most mentally and emotionally strong individuals should be in that position because how rigorous the job is and that is obviously not happening. More of the same cops that too weak and unstable to be cops and another reason to view cops with caution and suspicion. If they'd do that to their own daughter what would they do to civilians? Sanitation and street workers don't carry guns and have authority over much of anyone in the course of their jobs. If they are nutcases the damage they can do only goes so far. A nutcase as a police officer is far more threatening and dangerous.
There's no way to get away from it as a cop. Cops hold the thin blue line, maintain it, want it, and they are finding out that it is for worse as well as for better.
!st of all this guy was a cop. second of all he killed a child. People can not just leave the stress from the family at home while at work ,or leave the stress from the job at work while they are home. The fact that he is a cop is everything not some coincidental factors that should be ignored. We have face the fact he was a cop and not a garbage man.
Yes it does matter that the man is a police officer. I will tell you why. If he can lose his temper so easily and shoot the boyfriend and even at his own adopted daughter you can bet he has offended before in the line of duty but probably got away with it.
If he was a sanitation worker I would be sympathetic because a sanitation worker isn't trained in restraint and to be calm in stressful situations,a policeman is.
While their occupation may not have a baring on their current situation per-Se,It makes one wonder how they have handled being in such a high stress job all these years, when a introduction, I assume with a hand out to shake, could produce such a tragic ending and then to keep shooting at your KID ! That's unjustified in anyone's book I would think !
I would also be interested in what their "discipline" and complaint records look like,And any shooting they have been involved in(if any) needs a closer inspection after these awful actions....No,..not all cops are bad,but there are plenty of them out there...He, as a cop should know a gun is not what you need during a family argument with such high emotions...
My father's father put a gun to his head because he laughed at a smart remark his brother made that embarrassed him and a friend. He was about 12. I do not know and probably ever will, what could drive a parent to something like this, but time will tell as this winds it's way through court. This young man sounded like a good person who attempted to give help back. The world is a lesser place for one less caring soul.
It is related to their JOB because, if they could not Restrain themselves in this situation then how can anyone depend on them to act reasonably in a situation that was stressful in the real world of their job? These are the same people that shoot an innocent person or a Dog that is just trying to protect their owner/s, the same people that kick down the wrong door and kill an innocent person or persons. How can you justify their actions in this case against anything they might encounter in their job???????

I had been a customer of DirecTV since 2001. I had asked repeatedly to get The Blaze and I hit the same wall every time. Last year I got firm with them about getting a channel I wanted. I told them I did not want to remove Al Jazeera, but I did want to pay for the channels I want. They always said they would tell management. So last month I called and told them to close my account. They actually had the nerve to ask me why I was leaving. I said you should have it on my account as I have asked to have it noted many times. They acted like they never heard of The Blaze and just could not understand that their company would dare keep that channel off DirecTV because of politics. Yeah, right. I quit!!!!! I have dish now and so far I am happy.
