Because he and the Republican leadership are also idiots

Not only do I love how this guy properly used his firearm to protect himself and his property, and how he conducted himself with the perp and the police, but how he filled in his time waiting for the police to arrive by reminding the carjacker what a dumbass he was. Bwhaaahahaha!

I’ll let Jesus sort it out. Only God can know a man’s heart.

Throwing out a prayer for Matt Bevin this morning.

It’s always sad to see a fallen church leader, but it’s always important to remember that a church is built to worship God, and not a guy behind a pulpit.
It is sad for him, his family and the church. I pray he can control his urges and repent.
with a guy in the pulpit.......
Anyone who takes up the mantle as a church leader becomes a special target of evil and must be especially strong to resist the evil. I agree it is sad when some fail but we must forgive them and offer our prayers.
oz, Amen. Truly a necessary separation.
Lets be clear shall we. He was never a real Pastor of a real Christian church to begin with. Mosr protestant churches have gone the way of emergent church
...it is the great I AM that is sinful...
...proudly proclaiming I AM this or I AM that will lead to spiritual ruin, unless you proclaim that, "I AM an eternal Spiritual being suffering through a temporary physical existence...
Sad, but not surprising. So many of the most anti-gay have been revealed to actually be gay themselves. Treat all with love and respect, the gender one loves really doesn't matter.
It is sad, but it's not all that surprising. The most anti-alcohol preachers tend to be recovering alcoholics themselves. People who are extremely anti-cancer tend to be people who battled cancer themselves, or saw it destroy a loved one. So it makes sense that somebody who is suffering from homosexuality is so strongly against it. He's basically an expert on why it's evil, and how powerfully it can control a person. People who are afflicted with evil tend to be the most vocal and outspoken opponents to that evil.
People who have been delivered from homosexuality have described it as being like a heroin addict. Heroin is extremely pleasurable and feels great, but it also consumes your entire existence, your entire identity. Which is another reason why he should be disqualified from teaching others. Until he can rid himself of his addiction, it's basically like having a heroin addict show up every week and teach you.

While it is great that an ISIS leader is dead, this was not really a successful mission. They wanted this guy alive. They wanted vital intel on Al-Bagdadi and ISIS. I think they chose this guy who was not focused on by the media as a top lieutenant because they hoped he would be less protected and unsuspecting. Being that he was in charge of financing and oil transactions and presumably not a battle hardened lieutenant, they may have considered him easier to crack once in captivity, while having alot of valuable intel on leadership and income streams. Still, it is nice to know that these guys didnt lay a scratch on our DELTA badasses while they all got their tickets punched.

I’m so glad I saw this story. God revealed Himself in that little boy.

This scum will be caught. I just hope justice is served.

Good ruling. I understand the concern about this guy’s motives, but it’s the Constitution.
ozc: It's not the biggest equipment that I take umbrage with. It's the cops that couldn't pass a basic Army P.T. test, dressed-up like star ship warriors on steroids. I saw one cop that didn't know how to fasten his LBE (Load Bearing Equipment) and dragged his gas mask behind on the ground! Not very reassuring in the scheme of things.

Show me where you have seen the blaze readers supporting that kind of behavior from a police officer. And it is also important to note that the relationship between a suspect or criminal and a police officer has almost nothing in common with the relationship between a customer and employee.
 May 18, 2015 at 10:01am
Moral of the story: over-reacting psycho B shift managers or employees who treat paying customers like that get $#itcanned. She thinks she owns Starbucks and can decide to turn away a paying customer? Kudos to Starbucks for recognizing how incredibly out of line this former employee had been behaving.

Being that we have been at war for over a decade, I’m not sure which generations you speak of. The vast majority of Americans have respect for our veterans and active service members. Even alot of liberals share that respect.
Or, this could have absolutely nothing to do with war, nothing to do with Marines, and nothing to do with veterans. It could just be a picture which many shows, movies, posters have reenacted before. It amazes what passes off as offensive these days.
WWII was a war of shared sacrifice, there was sacrifice in the homeland as well as the sacrifice of men and women overseas. Our military has sacrificed, but the homeland hasn’t had any great burden. Sure most people respect our troops, but most people have not made any sacrifice to the war effort. It’s far different from when there was a draft and most families had members in the military.

I’m a Navy veteran, and I friggin love the Marines. I trained with some of them in A-School in Memphis. I just don’t see how this disparages the Marine Corps. It is just having some fun with an iconic (and staged, although that doesnt really matter) photograph. Playing basketball isn’t an anti-American statement last time I heard. If the photograph had been compared to a truly anti-american or disrespectful activity I would understand the outrage.
I would much better understand societal outrage over the youth of America thinking it's cool to walk around in Che Guevara T-shirts! Now there's a real mis-understanding of world history and events.
Maybe that's their gripe - They'd rather walk around with a picture of some commie on their shirt than wear an image that conjures-up memories of an iconic image of patriotism, service to country and victory over adversity.
Most of you know that I'm a Retired Marine, and I don't find that shirt offensive in any way.

I’ll pay to replace one of those markers, and let’s take that stolen one, melt it down to make a bullet…….

I havent seen a positive comment about this guy, so wtf are u talking about?. Figures it would be some leftist to refer to him this way.
When met up close and personal with harsh reality and consequences, many liberals embrace the logical conservative shackled deep inside. Like 9/12/11. Too bad it’s a temporary condition for most of them.

I agree with you, Miami. This story stinks big time, and flies in the face of things I’ve learned. Also there were multiple audiotape messages in 2010 and early 2011 from UBL released by Al Jazeera. If he was a prisoner, that seems rather unlikely. He also reported that only UBL was killed in the compound, but if you search and see the videos taken immediately following the raid you will see pools of blood in various locations inside the compound. And if you compare those videos and pics to the released pics of the three bodies, you will see that the flooring beneath the bodies matches up with those blood stains seen in the videos.
